It was my birthday last week.....

and now I'm old...if you count 24 as old. 

Anyway....I really wanted to share what my lovely brother in law to be (I'm getting married in September!) and his lovely fiancee bought me!!

 I've named him Percy....:D isn't he cute?!

For those of you who don't have a clue what it is...I'll tell you. Its a decopatch piggy bank. I had never done it before....what they got me was, my little Percy, the glue/varnish you can see in the pink bottle and some special papers.

The idea is to use the papers to cover can get A LOT of different things...just check out and see! The glue is special as it also acts as a water tight varnish and the end result is awesome as you can see! 

I loved it so much.......

I used my left over papers to decorate my side table!!! Although now I do need to order some more...or pop down to hobbycraft!

p.s ignore the black sharpie graffiti, I did that a few years ago and its become very warn as I forgot to varnish it!! 

Toodle pip!! xx
Hello Lovely People!!!!

Firstly thank you for taking the time to read my blog. Means a lot. 

Secondly, I'd like to introduce myself. I'm Lauren. Most of what you need to know is in my profile! 

And thirdly......I'm going to kick of this blog with a review of a product by one of my favourite brands Soap and Glory. I've only recently started using their products and boy am I hooked. They are perfect and suit my skin down to the ground. Which is difficult generally as I have quite sensitive skin and am extremely spot prone (boo :( ) 

So here it is......THE FAB PORE HOT CLOTH CLEANSER!!!!

What the box says: CLEAN OVER BACKWARDS: Squeeze out a generous splodge of the FAB PORE HOT CLOTH CLEANSER divide it between the pads of your fingers, and then massage onto your face and neck for at least sixty seconds (concentrate most on your nose, chin, or other clog-prone spots.)
Leave on for another minute, then press it all off with warm, wet muslin cloth.

Now, I've been using this every day, twice a day for over a week....I used to have many many clogged pores and black heads all round my chin, nose and forehead..and now POOF they've see a difference after the very first wash! I was amazed, utterly amazed as nothing I've ever used has worked that well before.

I especially love that they provide the little muslin cloth in the box. 

You will also find I'm a sucker for pretty packaging...and Soap and Glory have to do some of the prettiest packaging around. 

For only 10 squids (that's 10 British pounds in case you wondered) I'd say its definitely worth every single little penny!!

*please note, I purchased this item with my own money and this is a totally honest review!

So who else is in love with everything Soap and Glory?!

Toodle pip!!!
