Ebay Wins!

Heyy!! The other day I was in a MASSIVE bidding war with some person on ebay, they were trying to buy stuff I liked! So I kicked their ebay arses and won these 3 lovely items :)....

This is an Asos top as seen on Alexander Burke! I loved it when it was on Asos not that long ago so thought £7.60 was not too much to pay for it off ebay!

This is a New Look lace crop top which I love! Bargain at £2.76!!!

H&M brown Gladiator sandals......£2.30!!! Chuffed!!!

I am watching lots more items, as I have decided it is a lot cheaper to try and do as much of my summer clothes shopping as possible on Ebay and you can get nice stuff too!!

I'm making this a short post today as I am very tired but will definately post more tomorrow!!

Little Update, TOWIE night + Amazon Wish List :)

Hey everyone! I am feeling in quite a good mood at the moment, partly because my best friend Lamahra has decided to move back to Hull from Leeds! So that means I'll get to see her a lot more often! At the moment she is partying away in Ibiza, I hope she has an amazing time! Jealous!

I'm also looking forward to going out next Friday because its TOWIE night! 4 of the cast will be at a club in Hull and they are holding a karaoke competition so anyone can sing against them and if you beat them you win a prize! I am going with my other very good friend Polly and we are going to doll ourselves up TOWIE style!

My next week will pretty much consist of me riding my horse Ikoss and going to the gym everyday (or at least trying to!). I'm really into the gym at the moment and hopefully its paying off! Even though lately I have been eating very unhealthy food, so next week will be different! I do have this bastard wisdom tooth though that is determined to make my life hell at the moment, but so far I'm coping with the IMMENSE PAIN IN MY CHEEK!!! :(

Anyway, here is a wish list of items I would love from Amazon (I read like crazy and have way too many books but hey ho)

I would absolutely love a kindle! But the only thing is, all the books I want to read I probably already own at the moment in paperback, so I would have to buy them again to have them on my Kindle, but I still really want one! They are £150 from Amazon.

The Secret
My friend Lamahra swears by this book. Apparently it is all about how to make yourself get what you want by having a positive attitude towards everybody and everything and surrounding yourself with positive things. I can definitely see how it can work for some people. I would love to have a read and see what it is all about. Its £6.90 from Amazon, not too bad. It does have quite good reviews too which makes it more tempting.

When God Was a Rabbit
Not really sure what its about, but it has amazing reviews and for only £3.99 on Amazon you can't go wrong :)

Water for Elephants: a Novel
I always like to try and read the books before I see the film version, so thats my reason here. £3.99 also :)

"Jack is five. He lives with his Ma. They live in a single, locked room. They don’t have the key.
Jack and Ma are prisoners."

Doesn't that sound way too intriguing to ignore? £3.99

Before I Go To Sleep
Memories define us. So what if you lost yours every time you went to sleep?
An original, haunting, and deeply chilling debut. Cool. Maybe not for £6.99 though, I'd accept it as a present!

John Dies at the End

"My name is David Wong. My best friend is John. Those names are fake. You might want to change yours. You may not want to know about the things you ll read on these pages, about the sauce, about Korrock, about the invasion, and the future. But it is too late. You touched the book. You are in the game. You are under the eye. The only defence is knowledge. You need to read this book, to the end. Even the part about the bratwurst. Why? You will just have to trust me. Unfortunately for us, if you make the right choice, we will have a much harder time explaining how to fight off the otherwordly invasion currently threatening to enslave humanity. I m sorry to have involved you in this, I really am. But as you read about these terrible events and the very dark epoch the world is about to enter as a result, it is crucial you keep one thing in mind: NONE OF THIS IS MY FAULT."

Awesome. £5.11 (pre-order only)

War Horse
A book telling the story of a horses life on the front line in world war one. I am a horse lover so immediately wanted this book to have a good cry over! £3.51, Amazon

Thats about all I can think of right now!
I have had a busy night looking for clothes bargains on ebay too so I will share the ones I win with you! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Born This Way :)

As soon as Lady Gaga's new album Born This Way came out on Monday, I was in Asda buying it straight away! I absolutely love it, so I thought I would post some of my favourite songs from it on my blog. Everyone should own it in my opinion :) so please check it out! I would absolutely love to see her in concert and am gutted I never got to go on her Monster Ball Tour :(

Hair is my personal favourite so I thought I would start with that! Its also her new single.

Hope you like the songs! xxx

Me & Ikoss practicing for next weeks show :)

Here are some photos of me jumping Ikoss! There is a little show at our yard next Sunday and I would like to enter some of the jumping classes :) last time I entered I came 1st twice and 2nd! Ikoss was a little star and I'm sure she will win again next week with a bit of practice!

I will have to ride her every day and give her a nice bath and make sure her tack is all sparkling clean :)

I will do some more posts on how the practicing is going and a post about the show! xxx

2011 so far :)

I haven't posted in a while so I thought I would try and summarise the first 5 months of 2011 and why I have enjoyed it so much! And explain myself with a few recent photos too :D

I have loved starting the year with my lovely boyfriend Chris: (his blog is at chrisulliott.blogspot.com)
This is me and Chris at the pub :)
We went to the Hull Maritime Museum recently and I dressed up like a fisherman!
Very cool :)

He has been very good to me, driving me up and down to see my gorgeous horse Ikoss so I can ride her. he has also been taking some photos and films of me riding her, I will post them later but here was one of my favourites:
There are lots more but he wants to adjust the lighting and other stuff before he lets me show anyone! :)

I have loved 2011 because also I went to New Zealand in April for 3 weeks to visit my Dad, and I loved it because I obviously don't get to see him often.
This is me and my Dad on my last night there :( I was sad to leave!
This is me and my Dad on a gondola in Queenstown :)

Another thing I have loved about 2011 is having no stress over uni work! I start my third year of my Mental Health Nursing diploma in November and even though I can't wait, it has been nice to have a well deserved break from it all and take some time to enjoy myself before I have to get all serious with a proper career after uni :)

One thing I have NOT liked about 2011 is being skint! My flights to NZ cost £1059 which skinted me out completely, and as I am currently only working 2 days a week, I have nothing but dust in my pockets :(
BUT I have just applied to be a Gallery Assistant full time for a photography firm near where I live, so hopefully I bag that job!

I think that just about summarises my 2011 so far! The things I am most looking forward to in the next 7 months are going on holiday with Chris (hopefully) and again hopefully returning to New Zealand before I have to start Uni again! And also looking forward to cracking on with my diploma and getting a real job! With a real salary! Yeyyyy!

Bin Laden is Dead? Yeah Right!

SO we are all rejoicing because the most wanted man in the US has been killed.
Or has he??
He was conveniently "buried at sea", where are his remains for us all to see in person? This "genuine" photo that is circulating the internet just doesnt cut it for me, with all the technology these days it would be so easy for this to be a very good fake. The Americans jusat want us all to think we are safe from Al-Quaeda, whatever! They are as strong as ever! Also, wasnt Bin laden supposed to have "died" 8 years ago in an explosion? Who started that rumour? Or did he actually die then? Or is he still hiding and very much alive? We will never know the truth, never trust the US government people!!
