Bank Holiday, Hooray!

Whoooop! Go Deborah, it's your day off, go Deborah, it's your day off, I'm gonna party like it's my day off!
Thank God for frickin bank holiday, I've finally got a day off work! Working Monday-Friday (8am-5pm) is not easy and after a month its taken more than a toll on my body. I literally wake up, go to work, get home and fall asleep (and eat dinner if I have time) ooooo and my body hurtsssss! But I guess it'll all be worth it in the end when I have money saved up for uni. (eiiik which is in 2 weeks!!! :D) Lol bring on freshers week and let the fun begin!

St. Ives Apricot Scrub Review

I know St. Ives has been around for a while but since I have sensitive skin I didn't want to try a fragranced product in case I had a breakout. I decided to try this since they were giving away samples and I love it now and will definitely be taking this to university! The new design is good, it smells amazing and it works wonders on your face. After using it just once you already feel the difference. My face felt so smooth, it minimises my pores and reduces my blemishes which is a win for me and for a product so cheap, it is well worth it so I say give it a go and enjoy the benefits!

University Here I Come!!!

Arghhh! I got into university and better yet it was my choice that I got into. I must admit, I am a little disappointed that I didn't get the grades that I wanted but I'm grateful to just get into the uni especially since the whole reason behind me creating a blog in the first place was to blog about my uni experiences (which should be veryyy interesting). Anyway, I just wanted to share my news and to anyone following my blog, I can assure you, it's going to get a lot juicier when uni starts so stay tuned ;)

Freedom! (Well Just For A While...)

I'm freeeee! (well at least for the weekend) In my last post I mentioned that I was struggling a bit to get used to waking up so early again but now I must say, I'm getting used to it. Even though I don't always get enough sleep, its like my body just knows it has to get up at 5am and so its become much easier to get through the day. But anyway now that I have the weekend off I can sleep properly again and recuperate! (yaaay!)  
Enjoy the weekend; have a lie in or go out and have some fun while the British weather is still nice :D

Wakey Wakey!

Early morning starts can be the worst! I discovered that this week as I started training for a new job. Since finishing school I've had nothing to do so I would go to bed when I chose to and wake up when I wanted to- BAD IDEA! I'm suffering for it now though because my body is so used to sleeping so late that I'm finding it hard to sleep on time (lol and I make sure I watch big brother as well) so I'm constantly waking up tired :( 
*sigh* I guess this is my life now so wish me luck! :)

Schwartz 2 in 1 Southern Style Crunchy Chicken Bites + BBQ Dip

So I was sent a sample of one of Schwartz's new recipe mixes and the one I received was the '2 in 1 Southern Style Crunchy Chicken Bites + BBQ Dip' as you can see in the picture below

The packet is divided into two parts: the top being the BBQ dip seasoning and the bottom being the seasoning for the chicken. I decided to use this to make chips with the chicken bites and Caesar salad using these ingredients:

Here is the finished result :)

Here is how the chicken bites and BBQ dip turned out

Overall, I really like this product and I will be trying out the other recipe mixes too. The chicken bites and BBQ dip were so easy to make, takes very little time to prepare and is full of flavour so this is suitable for students, quick family meals etc. (lol basically everyone)

New Month!!!!

Whoop whoop!!! It’s the start of a new month! Haha pinch punch, first day of the month, no returns ;)
I always look forward to the start of a new month because to me it’s a brand new start. Everyday we get to know ourselves a little bit more and make a few mistakes along the way (we all do it sometimes) so when a new month comes along, it’s a fresh new start. I forget about all the bad things that have happened in the previous month and just look forward to the next, hoping it will be better than the last. So have fun in the month of August and be a better version of yourself than the last month :D
