10. My birth mark is on my ring finger and gets darker red when i'm cold or hot...
11. I have one leg warmer than the other from damaged nerves in my operation!


1. What made you start your blog?
 I just started reading through other peoples and was really interested in it and wanted to start my own straight away! It's just an enjoyable thing to do and I also think it's an achievement to write something that people are interested in and to get followers. Means a lot more than twitter followers!

2. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
I would love to live somewhere hot near a beach and think America looks amazing even though i've never been but i'm not sure i'd be able to leave my family and friends! I also really like Liverpool for some reason, I would consider moving to Liverpool if I went there more and decided if I definitely liked it and would want to live there. It's also not toooo far from family and friends!

3. Cheese or chocolate? 
Chocolateeee!! I do actually really like cheese but chocolate definitely wins! Big sweet tooth..

4. What's your favourite piece of jewellery to wear?  
Definitely rings, i'm not that big on necklaces and sometimes I find bracelets quite annoying. I like earrings but tend to wear the same few pairs! I have quite a few rings and love wearring a few together, I ordered two more yesterday yipppeeee :)

5. Who is your style icon?  
Just normal random people! I don't base what I wear on someone famous or anything. I suppose my style icons would actually be you guys and just people I see in the street! If I see someone looking nice in something i'm like ahhh I want that!

6. Who is your favourite blogger?
My favourite blogger is Kayleigh at CoutureGirl  Her posts are always relatable to things I like and are also written well so very enjoyable :) Also gorgeous!

7. What is your dream job?
 I'm not 100% sure what I want to do! I wanted to be a professional dancer but couldn't due to medical problems, I then did a beauty course but now can't do it due to allergies! So now I think I want to work in fashion retail, i'm not quite sure in what way but i'd like to work for a top fashion store and work my way up to a higher position.

 8. Name three things you couldn't live without.
 -Foundation!! I never ever go out without it, even to Sainsburys or whatever. Preferably Estee Lauder Double-Wear...
 -Socks. Yes, socks, I get suchhhh cold feet! I don't know how people don't wear socks in bed, I do even in summer!
 -Blonde hair dye/bleach. I could never ever have a different colour hair, my hair is natural a horrible mousy brown and it's so boring. I don't think chocolate browns/reds/gingers etc. are boring but I still wouldn't have my hair any other colour, it's not me!

9. What is your favourite season?
Autumn, I loveee that it's the start of the run up to halloween, firework night and eventually Christmas, get's me all excited! I loveeee hats, scarves, gloves, coats etc. and also autumn colours like dark red/maroon colours on my clothes and also on my nails. Even the colours of the leaves and stuff haha! I just love it :)

10. Twilight or Harry Potter?
 Neither! I actually hate them both, but I am going to pick Twilight purely because I hate Harry Potter so much. Everyone loves it but I just find it unbelievably boring I can't stand it!

11. What makes you smile?
 Oh god, everything! I'm so easily amused but the things the make me smile the most is probably my little sister, best friend, new clothes and shoes and watching funny videos of cats on YouTube. Yes, I am that sad.


1. What is your favourite type of blog post?
2. What is your favourite autumn accessory?
3. Where is your favourite place to be?

October wishlist!

Hey guys!

So throughout October I've seen alot of things I want but there are a few main bits I reaaaally want! I'm only working part time and trying to save for car insurance so I'm really trying not to spend money :( I'm hoping i'll get some money for Christmas and then maybe these bits will be in the sale! Even though that seems AGES away!

  I'm not really supposed to wear shoes like these but I can deal with hurting ankles and knees to wear these the odd time.. I didn't really like this shape of shoe at first but they've really grown on me and I love this colour with the studs! 
I've been wanting a leather jacket for sooo long but never wanted to spend the money, this is a bit stupid really cos I would wear it all the time, I think I will definitely be purchasing one when I get some money! I love this one as it has knitted sleeves which makes it a bit different and more casual which I like. 
The Lipsy top I havn't been wanting for ages, I've only just seen it but I love it and think it would look amazing with some skinny jeans for a night out. 
The missguided knot top/dress I've wanted for soooo long, I love this shape and the patterns they do are amazing, this is my favourite one! 
I've been wanting dark green jeans ever since I saw someone looking lovely in them a few weeks ago, I think they're an amazing colour for winter and would look great with a leather jacket. 
The moustache earrings I actually want for November as it's Movember and obviously I don't have a moustache to grow but still want to show my support for prostate cancer which I lost my uncle to.
I love this Topshop skirt and think it would look great on a night out and also on a cold day with some tights and a coloured cable knit jumper tucked in. It's also a great shape to hide my little pot belly...
Okay this bag is amazing. Someone came into my work with it and I was like OMG it is beautiful. I think it would be worth the £40 as it's a good size, black goes with everything and the stud detailing is gorgeous!
The cross ring from River Island i've been wanting for a while as I love rings and it's just a simple one to pair with others.  I have no idea why i've never picked it up when i've been in there cos i've wanted it for a while...
I love this necklace from New Look, I've never really been one for necklaces but recently I've been really wanting some big necklaces as I think they really jazz up an outfit and add something special to something plain. I like this one as it's gold and hasn't got too much going on so it would be quite easy to put with things.  

So this is my most wanted items at the moment, writing this is making me want to blow all the money I've saved but no I willll have willpower for once!! I will just have to wait, waaaaah. I also want some little ankle boots but can't actually find any I like, perhaps a good thing! 

What things are you needing in your life at the minute?!

Updated blog!

Hey guys :)

Just a quick post to say I have finally managed to make my blog look pretty! Let's just say i'm not quite a technical whizz so I could never work out what on earth I was doing, however I have now grown a brain, yippee :) I am so glad i've sorted it out because I think it really helps my blog look more appealing and makes my posts look so much better!

Also, I wrote a post not so long back on my blog name and I've decided to keep it as Emily's blog. I always thought this was boring and rubbish but I think I actually quite like it being simple so hey it's gonna stay as it is :)

So anyway now i'm gonna go try and work out for longer than 30 seconds and then jump in the shower or bath, I am yet to decide, and use my new John Frieda Frizz-Ease hair masque! And because I don't like doing a picture-less post...

LUSH wishlist!

Hey guys! 

So i've never really been a huge fan of LUSH, it's not that I don't like it or anything it's just never really appealed to me that much and I've never thought that much about it. I do love their colour supplement and I've bought the odd bath bomb here and there but I only go in there the odd time. However... recently I've seen so many of their products on blogs and youtube videos I've started to get really interested in them and there is quite a few I want to try, they look so cool and really fun! So I've been having a browse on their website and I have concocted (is that a word?) a list of the things I neeed to try!!

Golden Wonder bath bomb- £3.25
Were you expecting this from it?! I wasn't! It goes blue and green and has yellow stars in it, how pretty! Image from www.fleurdeforce.com
Twilight bath bomb - £3.20

This reminds me of those pink and blue fizzy bottle sweets, mmm!
Enchanted bath bomb - £3.20

Amazing! This is my favourite bath bomb I seriously need to try this!
Melting Snowman bath melt - £1.95 Adorable!!
Sandy Santa - £2.95 The best looking exfolaitor you have ever seen right! Hello stocking filler
FUN - £5 This is basically play dough so you can make things with it but you can use it to wash you body and hair, so cooool right
Colour Supplement in Light Yellow - £8.50 This would be a repurchase, I use this as a concealer but mine is running out, booo. It lasts for everrrrrrrrr
 So that's it for my wishlist, my favourite things would have to be the enchanted bath bomb and the christmas items as I am such a child! I will definitely be purchasing at least some of these, I have sensitive skin but I can deal with being pink and itchy for a while for an amazing coloured bath! That's if i react to it of course, does anyone know if these are good on sensitive skin?!

What's your favourite LUSH product? :)
