Tag Archives: Back to school


Some people love Easter, some people love Christmas but I when I was growing up, I always used to love going back to school. Aside from the chance to start the year again with fresh feet, it was the new pencil case which I loved.

You know, before the ink stains happened, before you chewed all your pen lids.

Since I left school and went to college, then uni, the thrill of having a new pencil case wore off. In fact, now I was buying things with my own money I didn’t bother! Any old pen would do.

This year I decided it would be different. Tomorrow is going to be my LAST FIRST DAY BACK!… EVER.

The diary, pencil case, notebook and pens were all from my local Sainsbury’s. As part of their ‘Back to School’ offer, everything was under, or just above. I love pens so much, and there was this great pen set (Markers, biros, gel pens, highlighters – the lot!) reduced from £7 to just over £2. Bargain!

The next splurge (This time, more expensive) was on hair products. After visiting my hairdresser for the first time in maybe six months   – I know, my bad – she told me my hair was horrendously damaged. This was from a mixture of hair dye, sun, bad shampoo (FYI guys, TRESSemmé is really really bad for your hair) and heat. She had to cut off more than I wanted to and told me to invest in a GOOD shampoo and conditioner.

Now I’m a student and can’t afford expensive things, so she recommended me some good highstreet brands. Out of the two she recommended I decided to go with Aussie because I remember LOVING the smell. I bought the Colour Mate Shampoo and the Colour Mate / Three Minute Miracle conditioner. They were £4.99 each in boots, but they had a 3 for 2 offer so I bought another TMM conditioner, this time for dry long hair.

I had also heard one of the beauty vloggers I watch rave about Lush hair products, so after a chat with the sales consultant in there I blagged myself some ‘Roots’ hair treatment (Around £10 for a medium tub). Now to me Lush is expensive but so far I’m pretty impressed. I’ll do a review later, and who knows – I might even become a Lush addict!


I’m really sorry for rambling away but I have never done one of these before xD I also bought a couple of clothes in preparation for Winter, but I’ll cut this one short for now and do a fashion post later.

Thanks for reading :3
