Things I wont be buying again!

Ok, so it's no secret that me and Mr S have been very low on cash for the past few months, meaning we have been trying to watch the pennies as much as possible. Because of this, I have been keeping my eyes open for any bargains. I recently made the most of a 3 for 2 offer on maybelline products at boots, and also saved some cash by buying a cheaper dry shampoo from superdrug. Sadly these products are so useless, that I couldn't help but tell you all about them!

First of all, the dry shampoo. I usually buy batiste which was £2.09 in superdrug, so when I spotted tresseme's equivalent for around 50p less I thought I'd go for it.
BIG MISTAKE! I've tried my fair share of dry shampoo's and this is definately the worst! It is so thick it turned my hair white with the smallest amount of spray, and gave my hair a really horrible texture that just wouldn't brush out! The only way this dry shampoo will make your hair look fresher, is after you've had the shower to wash the bloody stuff out!

Secondly is maybelline's new falsies mascara. It was on an introductory price in boots a little while ago and was part of a 3 for 2 offer. I thought I was getting a real bargain after the advert saying 9 out of 10 people would recommend it. I'm not the biggest mascara user as I'm lucky enough to have naturally black eyelashes, however it's always nice to give them a boost! This mascara is definately the worst I've used. The brush is an awquard shape to use, and pulls out such thick clumps of gooey mascara, that makes such a mess and takes forever to dry!

Finally is maybelline's line definer eye liner. This liner looked perfect, it gives a nice clean, thin line which is great for adding a nice little flick! However, it is very very messy, designed like a pen you get a fair amount of liner smudge onto your fingers when applying, and after a couple of hours the lines on your eyes will have smudged or rubbed off all together! Tres dissapointing :(
Has anyone else used any of these products yet? If so what did you think? :) x

Another new layout!

Ok, so for the past few months my laptop has been dead and broken. At the moment I'm saving up so buy a shiny new one :) but for now I am using Mr S' notebook, which unfortunately only has a 8.9" screen! Meaning I can only see the very middle of my blog! However, I was pretty sure the background had vanished from my blog! So after a good amount of template hunting, i finally found a nice and simple replacement :) yay!
The only thing I'm not too pleased with is i need a new banner, and some of the fonts are a little dull, but this will have to wait until I have a bigger laptop, as this one is just too weeny to see anything!

Today i got a phone call offering me this little lady for free under the promise of a good home :) so now she is wandering around infront of me, having a good explore of my living room! Leaving me time to think of the perfect name for her :) so far I have thought of misty, twilah and betsy, any suggestions? :)

Hapi-ness again

Hi all
I'm pleased to announce that after a week of time to get my head together, and a little bit of retail therapy! I am finally bouncing back into being Hapi-ness.
I have decided to rehome another little kitty, as our little jinx has been so sad since Esme died :( so at the moment we are on the look out for the perfect addition to our family!

Because it has been FOREVER since I have had regular updates with blogger, i have a nice range of goodies lined up to give away over the next few weeks! Yay!
I have missed all of my blogging buddies so much!! So right now I am going to have a trawl through some of my favourite blogs to catch up with everybody :)
