New Purchases + Books

Bag - Matalan £6
Eyelashes - Matalan £3
Candle - IKEA 56p

Yesterday I went out with my mum as she's been scouting for a coat to buy. We managed to do so much yesterday in such a short space of time, but it was lovely just chatting away with my mum about everything! Anyway, for a while now I've been wanting to build my bag collection slightly and I've needed a smallish bag for a while, because all of the ones I own are really big! So when I saw this I thought I would get it. My mum tried to persuade me to get a different one as she thinks i won't use this one, but i reckon i will. The colour is so nice, and seeing as i wear such dark clothing these days, it should brighten up my outfit! 

I also bought my first ever pair of fake eyelashes for £3 which in my books is quite cheap. Now I've never in my life worn fake eyelashes and I'm praying that I don't look like an absolute tart when I do wear them, but I just wanted to try them out! I also got myself a vanilla scented candle from IKEA which just smells divine and I can't wait to burn it!
Yesterday I went to the library and got some books (which I don't do very often). These included these in the picture which are both by Malorie Blackman. One of them is called 'Noughts and Crosses' and the other is called 'Double Cross'. I started reading 'Noughts and Crosses' last night and I'm already quite far in, it's just so interesting. My aim is to try and read both books this half term, which hopefully I will do!

I'm sure everyone has heard the devastating news about Whitney Houston's death. I found out this morning through Twitter and I was absolutely shocked. She was only 48!! My heart goes to all her family, RIP Whitney.

I went to see this a years ago at the the theatre when it was put on at the Royal Shakespeare Company. My Auntie was actually a member of the cast too! Found the programme whilst clearing out my bedroom the other day. Maybe I should read the book...
