Home Haul

I Love shopping. But what I love most is when I get amazing bargains for as little as £1. 

I'm forever scouting out poundland, poundworld, or general bargain stores. At the moment my love is the range and BM stores. So here is just a few cute little things I got a few days ago that Iv been dying to share.

These little pots I thought would be AMAZING for makeup brushes. They are meant to be for holding candles but I just have to have them on my vanity. There cute little metal hearts had me won over as did there cute little rope handles. There was a black heart option but thought the silver was much cuter. Cant wait to fill them up with my brushes.
They cost £1.99 from BM stores.

Next up was this little makeup organiser from Poundland. Going to be great for holding some lipsticks on my vanity again.

Some little picture frames and this little mirror were all £1 each. Going to be fulling them with pictures and putting them on the living room wall, or maybe the bedroom. Haven't quite decided yet.
I choose these picture frames because of the details around the side. Also I thought with having them in the 3 shades would make an interesting display. Thinking black frame to be the centre image.
The mirror fits in with my vanity's colouring and also my daughter has butterfly's in her room. So want to put this up in my room.

These were probably my favourite purchase and at £1 a steal too! Iv been after something like this for ages as have quite taken to the trend of having smoothies out of jars. These hold cold drinks amazingly well too. I adore the fact they have little handles and the cute tops are just a bonus. They are made of a thick glass and came in these colours. So refreshing for a summers day. I got four of them from Poundworld but im currently sipping ice watter out of one of them.

I will do a little haul on the makeup I bought in the next few posts too.

Until next time,
Much Love,

Day one and the morning after: Venom Piercing

It only took me 5 years but today I got my Venom piercing.

I can remember asking my mum in Glasgow years ago after (about 6 years) as we were going to a create and craft thing in the SECC. Of course her answer was no, but Iv always had it in my mind to get one. So today, after humming and haying for a few years, was the day.

After registering at new Dr's, I made my way over to the amazing 'Tattoed Freak' where the lovely  Darrel works.  I honestly wouldn't go anywhere else for my stabby fun.I think it was about 2.30pm at this point. So sitting filling in an electronic consent form, waiting then out he pops with a customer he just pierced. It was my go.

I have to say this is all sounding rather dramatic, it really wasn't. He got me marked up, used a torch to look for veins then on with the task at hand.
I didn't even blink at the pain. It was so nonexistent I don't understand why people are so afraid of piercings. I had got my nipples done before my tongue and they were just as pain free. A strange sensation but definitely not painful. 

So out with the needles then in with the piercings bars, that's probably the worst bit of it, just the pressure on your tongue.
Drooling, he went onto piercing two.

Done. Two new shinnies.

I have this picture, a quick one I did after it to show a friend so excuse the blur:

So at night it was a case of smoothies, ice chips and ice water. Even tho I'm pretty much on a smoothie diet anyway the fact I couldn't eat proper crunchy and chewier food was the worst hurdle. Its like telling somebody not to press the red button. You just want it more.

So swirling mouth wash and popping ibuprofen (helps reduce swelling) I went away to bed.

Morning of Day Two:

So sitting typing this at 9am with the little one watching Zingzillas (The darkness was on it) eating ice chips. My tongue swollen and the bit under its tender. Having difficulty moving my tongue and there teeth imprints along its side.  No talking for me today, and might even cheat my diet with ice cream.

Here's a quick picture of it:

I'm going to be updating you all with its healing process. Always great to see other people's experiences with this sorts of things.

Untill later,
Much love,
Umber xxx
