Cherry Pie : Deploy the battery, We’re taking back control

3 April 2011

Deploy the battery, We’re taking back control

I post so many reviews, nail art and wishlists posts on the blog these days that I don't often get time for a more personal post about what is going on in my life!

Today is my last free day until I start work! I'm going to be working at the University I graduated from for 3 months on an Online Content Writer Internship. The official Internship doesn't start until the 13th but there is some other work for me to do until that date. The sooner I can get money the better really! I'm pretty much going to be working full time and will have evenings and weekends free so there will probably be lots of scheduled posts for a while.

I can't wait until payday already. I have so many things that I want to get for myself as well as for my niece, who is due in July. I've promised to buy her changing mat and of course I won't be able to help myself and will buy her lots of cute clothes and toys. First on my list is a hungry caterpillar baby-grow! Cute! I've asked my sister to tell me EXACTLY what she needs so I can make a list and buy her stuff that is definitely going to get used and she's been very specific which is good!

This weekend has been pretty relaxed. Yesterday I popped into town specifically because I wanted to get the voucher in the Daily Mail newspaper for the free Body Shop Body Butter, but of course, I ended up spending way more money than I really should have. With the voucher, came a 'spend £15, get £5 off' offer, so I took full advantage of that and got myself and Vince a few goodies...

I picked myself up a little Strawberry Shower Gel and Body Lotion set for £5 seeing as they had none of the full size Shower Gel. I also got myself a Coconut shower gel because of it's glorious scent, a headband, the free body butter and hair & bodywash for Vince. 

Going into the Body Shop with Vince is hilarious! He likes to sniff all of the testers and recoil in loud disgust at the smell of them all and he was extremely disappointed that they didn't have bubble bath! I know he hates shopping with me, especially on a Saturday, but he did pretty well despite the hordes of people and the amount of shops I dragged him into! He'd much rather stay at home but I like to get out of the house and get some fresh air! The weather was pretty good and he got a treat from the Body Shop out of it anyway. :P

I had to pick up another hair dye as my new red hair has revealed some patchy spots of brown! As it's so long now, one box of dye didn't really cover it properly so I'm going to brave another box! Does anyone else fall for last minute purchases when they're stood in the queue? I always do! I ended up buying a pack of three Dairy Milk and some fizzy sweets. I really shouldn't fall for it but I'm a sucker!

We always spend Saturday nights infront of the TV and as Vince is a bit of a whizz in the kitchen, he always takes on cooking duties. Last night he rustled up some home-made KFC which tasted delicious and was much cheaper than the real thing! His cooking skills amaze me sometimes, he is so inventive and even if he hasn't made a dish before, he just improvises and goes for it, which means I get lots of yummy meals...and lots of weight gain unfortunately, lol!

This weekend I've also taken full advantage of eBay's free listing fees and have literally put my life onto eBay. I still have more to add today after I clear my wardrobe out, so let's just hope I sell it all. If you're interested, you can view my items HERE

So there's my weekend in a nutshell! I will try and blog again mid-week and give you all an update of how the job is going. :)


  1. I love the body shop! + the food in this post is making me hungry! <3

  2. Your Body Shop haul looks great, what a bargain too with the vouchers. Good luck starting your internship. Writing content for a website is part of my job and I love it (and I graduated from Solent too!) I need to get so much stuff on EBay, hope they have another no fees weekend soon as I missed it this weekend.

  3. homemade KFC...Y.U.M.
    I love body shop goodies!!
    enter my giveaway on my blog to win a studded Replay bag!! :)

  4. The Bodyshop goodies look lovely. I'm a bit of a sucker for the Neroli Jasmine shower gel, and their make up brushes are fantastic.

    Enjoy your last day off, and hope you enjoyed your homemade KFC, probably better for you than the real thing as well as cheaper and more flavoursome. My dad does all the cooking in our house, as he is a chef who no longer works in kitchens, and it's so satisfying to eat something yummy, that isn't necessarily healthy, but you know has nothing untoward in.

    Good Luck with the next internship/job.

  5. Good luck with the internship - sounds like a fantastic opportunity. Plus payday is always good!

  6. Good luck with the new job!
    Looks like you got some good stuff from The Body Shop!
