Summer 2012

So first I must apologise, I have been TERRIBLE at keeping this blog up! My new job has kept me busy with a hell of a lot of commuting which has meant my poor laptop has not been very well cared for recently!

My new job at the Disney Channel is really fun and I've been there for almost 2 months now, we've got some really great shows coming out soon and it's lovely to be a part of something that's actually going onto television!

This horrendous English weather is making me remember my incredible summer and I found some pictures on my phone and on my Mum's camera and thought I'd show you guys a few pictures for a little round up of my summer 2012. I promise I will try to keep this more updated, I've been to some great restaurants since working in London so I'll do a post of recommended restaurants for you!

Glossybox July and August

I've been very slow on the uptake with my Glossyboxes while I've been away in London so I've had two in the time I was away so I got two presents all together! I feel like these posts are getting a little samey so I'll quickly whizz through, show you what I got and pick out a few favourites for you!


{Bex London Urban Fragrance}

{Elizabeth Arden's Visible Difference Gentle Hydrating line}

{Nuxe dry oil for face, body or hair}

{Monu Eye Cool Gel}

{Paul Mitchell Moisture Mist}

{Jelly Pong Pong Lip Frosting tinted lip balm}

This was a so so box, I really like the Paul Mitchell spray and the eye gel as they were almost full size so I felt like I was getting my money's worth. But I'm starting to feel that with these boxes I'm just getting different versions of the same fragrance, moisturiser, lip balm etc. which is to be expected after a while.


{DHC Deep Cleansing Oil}

{Allesandro Pro White Brightening Nail Polish}

{Glossybox Glossy Pink Lipstick}

{Lipcote Lipstick Sealer}

{All for Eve Eve's Balm for dry, chapped skin}

{Vera Valenti Eyeshadow palette}

This box's theme was the International heroes which I think they've done well to demonstrate by bringing in brands from other countries. I'm really pleased with the Lipcote and the lipstick and the Pro White nail varnish is so good for when you're giving your nails a few days break from nail varnish to avoid the yellow look! However, who wears GREEN eyeshadow these days?! I know I moan about not getting more than just the same products in the box but really this is a stocking pressie you never use apart from for dressing up which is rare. Apart from that I think I'll get a good use out of these products.

I sound a little down on the lovely Glossybox but I really do love the idea and I'm also glad they've increased the Glossydot worth of reviews to 50 so your 5th box will always be free which isn't bad! My next one is planned to be my free one, thank goodness!!

The Finals

The last two days of the Beach Volleyball was possibly the maddest, most fun two days of the whole Olympics games. On the Wednesday we had the women's final USA VS USA ironically so NBC were out in force for the match!

We spent all day celebrity spotting and boy did we do well on the spotting. First the gorgeous ginger that is Prince Harry sauntered past us with some Gold medal GB team rowers and watched the bronze match, he truly is beautiful and my only chance left to be a Princess so I tried my hardest to impress but the uniform slowed me down immensely in the seduction mission!

Then for the final match along brought the terribly hot David Beckham, honestly he might be quite old but he is beautiful! We were so excited that a volunteer asked him to take a picture with some of us girls working there so I actually have a picture with THE David Beckham! If you follow me on Twitter or hav me on Fb you will definitely already know this as I've been going on about it for so long!!

{He smells delicious by the way!}

We had so many visits on the women's final that the men's final was an, obvious, anti-climax. No one seemed particularly bothered about Germany vs Brazil! The lovely Brazilians lost and we saw them in the hotel after, celebrating their silver medal and drowning their sorrows. At least they have Rio to look forward to!

However, after the match was when the fun started. We let rip onto the sand we'd be looking at for so long! We may have gone a bit mad!

{It is very hard to do handstands in sand!}

{Very S Club 7}

{Overly excited about the number of Army boys here}

{In the little rest huts for the players}

{Felix getting excited about the Army too}

I was privileged to have such a gorgeous and lovely team of girls to be working with, they were so lovely and made the whole experience that more amazing. Here's a few snaps of our little Liaison Officer teams!

{X Factor's Peter Dickson!}

It has been incredible and I have the post-Olympics blues very badly!
