Weird "/

Wednesday's are always a bit shit for me in the mornings since I have to get up at like 6:30am to go take the dog and make sure I'm ready for work on time. Usually the morning shift is really quiet in the Espresso Bar though, so it almost makes up for having to get up real early. But today was really weird because we were really busy from about 9:00am till I left "/
Wednesdays are Market days but that has never really made much of a difference when I'm in, so I don't know what was so special about today but it was the busiest morning shift I think I have ever done o.O

It's not so bad the morning shift though, cause then I have the afternoon and tomorrow off XD

I can't wait till tomorrow cause I get my sexy new glasses ;D
And then on Sunday I think I'm going to Hanley to find some carpet or a new kitchen or something with my parents so I think I'll nip into Superdrug and look for some more Sleek stuff while we're there :D

But right now I think I'mma go play Van Helsing and possibly come up with an FOTD for today or tomorrow (:

Bit short this but I just wanted to tell someone how weird this morning was for me XD

I got tagged =O

My lovely friend Leanne tagged me to do this, so I thought I would XD

1. First of all go to your 'Pictures' folder (I'm pretty sure you all know where it is) then simply click your first album of pictures.
2. Count down your photos to your lucky 10th number. But it must be a picture that hasn’t been tampered with or named and you can’t pick one you've already posted on blogger.
3. Lastly post your wonderful picture and tell us all the amazing story that goes with it. Sounds fun ay! Oh and don't forget to tag 5 more people when your done!

This is from when I saw Children Of Bodom at Rock City in Nottingham :D

This was the best day/night of my life and I can't explain with sufficient words how much I loved this concert. There was loads of people who though cannibal Corpse should have headlined but I think that COB headlining was totally the right choice because they blew me away (:

I caught a bottle of water that Alexi threw into the crowd too and I still haven't opened it yet XD

So yeah (:

My day + an FOTD (:

I woke up stupidly early today for no apparant reason XD
So I thought, rather than go back to sleep I'd get up and get some extra time to do my hair & make up (:
Work was pretty normal, but I did have quite a slow shift today and they always suck cause there is nothing to do. I ended up cleaning the big stainless steel sink because there was actually NOTHING else to do >.<
I was thinking loads about what I could do for the experiment with my Sleek palette, and I thought that since there is a lot of bluey greens in it I'd do a sort of ocean-inspired look (:
After work I wanted to nip uptown to go grab some bits and see what bargains there were and I ended up coming home with this:
This isn't a very good picture to be honest because the lighting in my room is crap but mehhh. XD
1 - Skinology facial wipes. I got these because I needed some new make up removal wipes and they were 2 for 97p in Wilko (:

2 - Collection 2000 Fast Stroke Liquid Eyeliner. I've been wanting some decent liquid eyeliner for absolute ages and one of my friends who uses this says it's awesome, and it's not too expensive, so I figured I try it out and see (:

3 - Natural Collection Solo Eyeshadow in Mermaid. I liked the colour of this and it was 3 for a fiver on all Natural Collection products (:

4 - Natural Collection SunTint Bronzing Pearls in Tropical Tan. I wanted some more Bronsing Pearls because my Body Shop ones ran out and, again, 3 for a fiver on Natural Collection (:

5 - Natural Collection Juicy Lips Gloss in Toffee Cream. I can never seem to find a lip gloss that suits me but when I tried out this tester I actually really liked it, and I needed another product to make up the deal on the Natural Collection stuff so I got it :D

So when I got home, The first thing I did was rush upstairs to start on my experiment XD

This is what I came up with:

As I say, the lighting in my room is crap so my skin doesn't look amazing but all you really need to see are my eyes so I don't care XD
For this look I used:
- The Body Shop Ultra Smooth Face Base in '03'
- Natural Collection Pressed Powder in 'Neutral'
- Natural Collection SunTint Bronzing Pearls in 'Tropical Tan'
- Avon Glazewear Diamonds Eye Colour in 'Golden Lights'
- Sleek i-Divine Curious palette
- Collection 2000 Fast Stroke Eyeliner
- Image Volume & Extend Mascara
- Natural Collection Juicy Lips Gloss in 'Toffee Cream'

In the Sleek palette I used these colours (:

To Sheffield!

So Meadowhall today was epic!

This is everything I got today, and a few things I got earlier this week (:

I was up at like 7:40 this morning so that I'd be ready to go out by 9:00, since it takes me ages to get ready. But like, at about quarter past eight I had to go out and get some milk because we had none for cereal >.<
So after that not much happened until we got to Meadowhall really XD I always love walking into Meadowhall, because whichever entrance you walk into it still makes me feel awesome, especially when I have a bunch of my own hard-earned money to spend there too :D

I always love the big statue thing of the men smelting and casting the metal so I took a picture of it for you =3

I think the first shop we went to was Build-A-Bear, I was gonna buy my bear(who is called Bellamy and currently dressed as a pirate) some new clothes (they had the cutest little Harry Potter outfit :3) but decided against it as there was other stuff I wanted more than that. But my brother and sister both got a new bear, my brother got a Snow Leopard which he called Snowy, and my sister got a Hippy bear thing that she called Acey. I thought it was quite cute XD

Then we went up a floor and I went into 'Accessorize' and bought some super cute Bunny ears because it was 70% off in a sale and I really wanted them XD I meant to go into Lush aswell but I didn't get chance to ): But there's one in Hanley so it doesn't bother me too much (: Then we went to the Oasis food court to grab a bite to eat and go to the loo and stuff XD Harry Ramsden's was the winner and I ended up paying cause my dad forgot to draw any money XD after that we wandered round 'The Lanes' for a bit, which is basically a bunch of cute little shops that aren't big brands or anything and you can find some bargains there! I always love wandering round them (: I went into this little shop called 'Xtras' first, and I meant to go there if I'm honest because I went on Meadowhall's website lastnight and saw it in the A-Z of shops.They had all these really nice perfumes and, again, they weren't big brand perfumes but they had reccomendations for which perfumes you might like if you liked a certain big brand one. For example, there was a perfume I ended up getting called 'Spirit Of Shadow' that is very similar to Ghost, and I love Ghost so that, for me, was a must have.

Then I wandered round a few more of those shops and found some awesome Final Fantasy figures in one, but they were quite pricey so I decided to give it a miss ): but then I found another one of the little shops I'd been looking for called 'Extravaganza' and I wanted to go there because it had lots of incense and my mum loves incense XD I managed to pick up an actual tunnel for my ear, so that I don't have to worry about it healing up when I'm at work, as I can't wear my stretcher while I'm at work, and I got it in 10mm rather than 8mm so I could stretch my ear another 2mm (:

I went to Game after that cuz I'd been wanting some new games for aaaaages and they do awesome deals on pre-owned games, I managed to get Eragon, Van Helsing, Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers and Malice all for a tenner! and since I go to Game a lot I thought I should get a Game reward card too XD

I always love finding bargains on games XD

So after Game I went to Superdrug and bought what is possibly my most exciting buy of the day, and at 4.87 I just couldn't pass it up! I got myself an awesome i-Divine Sleek Curious palette which I'm gonna try out tomorrow ;D It's made even more awesome because it's Limited edition too :D

In this picture is (L-R) my new Sleek Curious palette(top left), my 3 new Natural Collection eyeshadows, in Spring Green, Starlight/Midnight and Frost Shimmer/Aqua Shimmer that I got earlier this week along, on the right is an Asquith & Somerset Pink Rose set of Body Lotion, Body Wash and Hand & Nail cream I think. I didn't buy this but I was given it and thought I'd include it (: and then at the bottom is the new perfume I mentioned earlier 'Spirit of Shadow', and it smells gorgeous, if I do say so myself, and only cost me 2.99 :D I'm really excited about experimenting with the Sleek palette but it's too late now, so it'll have to wait until tomorrow.

So that's all for today but I'll update tomorrow with whatever I come up with for my experiment with the Sleek palette (:

Numero Uno!

So, first things first;
Hi, I'm Amber (:

I liked the idea of being able to keep track of everything I do and what better way to do that than make an online Journal/Diary. (:
So this will mainly be about things I do and stuff like that XD
I'll try to update as much as I can, but some days will clearly be much more boring than others XD

I'll hopefully be able to update tomorrow about my trip to Meadowhall in Sheffield, which I am super super excited about :D

So.. yeah (:
