Cherry Pie : Feeling hot hot hot!

23 April 2011

Feeling hot hot hot!

Wow is it hot. I don't know where you lot are but here in Southampton it is ridiculously hot. My phone says it is currently 24 degrees and I'm sat in my bedroom!

Last week I picked up some shorts in Matalan as I couldn't bare to wear my jeans any longer. If you know me, you'll know that I'm pretty petrified of baring my legs...I can't explain it but I have such a lack of confidence that for years I couldn't step out of the house with my legs on show, which is why summer after summer, I've stayed in jeans. Well I finally had enough. I feel much more confident about myself and decided to buy the shorts on a whim and force myself to wear them. Well, I'm so glad I did because I love them and I no longer feel self confidence about showing my legs off, even if they are incredibly pasty!

I bravely ventured into town today. I had to exchange a few things and pick up a few bits and pieces. I picked up this gorgeous rabbit ring from Matalan as well as some cute earrings.

I'm not normally one for wearing rings but I'm slowly building a little collection. I recently purchased a gorgeous Owl ring from They have a great range of products and they're all really cheap. This Owl ring was just £4!

I also picked up the new Hand Maid Antibacterial Gel from Soap & Glory as well as some Garnier Summer Body Moisturising Lotion, that has a hint of tan in, some Veet Hair Removal Cream (to make sure my legs are silky smooth of course!) and some absolutely gorgeous Champagne smelling Bubble Bath from Asda. I recently spotted their cute range of bath and shower products, they've got loads of gorgeous stuff, I particularly want to get my hands on their sugar scrubs and body lotions! The products are cheap and cheerful but probably do just as good a job as the more expensive stuff!

I was actually planning on looking for a Petite Maxi dress but I was so hot and bothered that I came home! The Sun makes me so sleepy and I knew that I had to pick up some food shopping so thought I better get that over and done with.

Now onto the 30 Day Blog Challenge...I'm really enjoying it at the moment as it's making me post every day and think hard about what to write about my day. Hopefully you're all finding it somewhat interesting! Today's post is...

My phone is a HTC Wildfire. I only got it because my boyfriend found a deal Online where it came with a free Playstation 3. So the contract is in his name, but the phone is all mine! I was a little disappointed that things like the Angry Birds App is too big to work on the phone but other than that I really like it. :)

Hope everyone has a good Easter tomorrow. I don't think I'm doing anything special, Vince has a deadline on Tuesday so he'll probably be doing work, leaving me to potter around the house. :)

Happy Easter!
