Time for change.........

Hello Strangers!

It seems strange that I am once again writing away (and wondering if anyone will ever pop in and have a read). I have been gone for a year, and now feel its time to start over again with a bit of a makeover and revamp to my little blog. I am opening this new blog as 'Granny Meghan' my friends family and teachers call me this name due to my love of everything old and my 'caring nature'. I want this to be more of a life posting blog, however I am still a girl with a love of all things fashion related so the beauty side of me is still going to be here!

The last time I put my "pen to paper" was to appologise for my lack of posts and to update you on what has been going on in my life, well a lot has changed since then. It has been nearly a year since I lost my granddad and over that year there has been many, many ups and downs. Although I am happy to say right now life could not be better.

I am nearly finished my higher exams ( I was not prepared for how hard this year would be!) and exited as I prepare for my "holiday". This year I have Volunteered to be a helper as I accompany a group of VIPs, nurses doctors and fellow helpers on a 10 day trip to Lourdes on a Jumbalance. I am to say the least  frightened and nevous all at the same time as this experience is unlike anything I have ever done before. I am going with three teachers from my school and two other girls. The teachers have all been on this trip several times ( one is even the group leader!) although my friends-the two girls- have not so we are all in it together!
When I return from Lourdes I go away to Ireland to meet my very large family whom I have never met before! I am so exited!

So as summer is fast approaching and I have re-entered the blogosphere I hope this time I am here to stay! So as I ramble on I hope that someone out there might pop in and have a read. I really must put my head back into the spanish book!

Adios for now,
Granny Meg's

I'm still here!

Hello my lovelys

I just thought I'd do a little update for you all on why I've not been posting recently I felt I owe it to you my lovely followers...and to let you all know I am still here!!!

I've had a few family problems in the last few months like i mentioned in my last blog the problem was with a one of my family members being seriously Ill it happened to be my papa who I was extremely close to, and spend most of my time with over his last few months he sadly passed away at the end of June and I'm just getting back to reality now. When I feel brave enough I may share some of the things i went through and I know that having my friends was a huge support especially since I've never had a bereavement in my family before therefor I might rename my blog and do more life updates as well as the beauty side of things....but I would like to know if you my followers would be interested in this...

I'm so sorry I've not been updating but I hope you all can all understand.
Hopefully I should be back up and running again soon! I've gathered a huge amount of things over the past few months and look forward to blogging about them all!

In the mean time go check out my beautiful friend julz she's such a lovely Girl and we both started blogging at the same time, she's now made the plunge and started her own you tube channel so go check her out!!

Thanks again for not abandoning me!

Hello Happy SPRING! and shopping haul!

Hello my lovely's!

Hope you all had a lovely weekend! Mines was fab!

First of all you may have noticed a big layout I have been playing with it for a while now and have finally found the "one". I think this suits me and my style down to a T and its perfect! I hope you all like it to leave me a wee comment on your opinions!

I had the first of my friends 16th's yesterday and it was amazing! I had rushed around the shops yesterday morning trying to find some lovely goodies to wear and I wasn't disappointed! So as promised I have a haul. I also popped into Glasgow today and picked up a ABSOLUTE bargain that I couldn't resist! (I picked up lots of bargains this weekend!) More about that later but!

So my outfit looked like this....

The dress I am wearing I bought in Dorothy Perkins sale it was reduced to £17 from £25 I belive. The heels that I am wearing are from asda and I purchased them last year for £15. The Jewelary I am wearing is

The blue bracelet is from Primark and was only £1 along with the ring which was also £1 the earrings are from DP also and were again £1....Told you bargain weekend!!!

The make up I am wearing is mainly MUA as I went a little crazy in Superdrug! The things I purchased were

I took my friend Julz's advice and purchased some of MUA's eye shadows including there 12 neutral colour palliate which I find just as good as any Urban Decay colours and for only £3 well its another bargain! I also purchased 2 of their Trio eye shadows which I am in love with! I believe they are £2.50 each and they have quite a few to choose from but I got the "Chocolate box and Pink Sorbet" ones. They are beautiful and very pigmented, they come with a little guide on where to apply the colours on the back which is helpful even though I tend to do my own thing. I also picked up a black eyeliner pencil which I love as it has a in-built sharpener on the lid which is so compact and handy!

The reason I popped into superdrug was to see if the Revlon lip butters had been released here and to pick up the MUA BB cream, sadly I'm still waiting the arrival of the lip butters but managed to pick up some BB cream and so far so good! I have wore it twice now and the coverage is really good, I picked up the light colour by mistake but am glad I done so as this colour is perfect to my skin tone. Once I know the product a little better I will do a full review on it.

As you can see in the picture I also picked up a vented brush as I have been watching some hair tutorials for ideas for my hair for the wedding so required this brush to do some of the styles.

Oka so its time for my biggest bargain of this weekend! So I popped into Glasgow today with my mum as I was needing shoes and my mum a dress for the wedding, sadly I didn't pick up any shoes but instead picked up one of the prettiest summer/party dresses ever!

So the dress is from coast, this is a shop that I adore as the dresses are just beautiful...ashamed the prices aren't pretty on my cash but!...WELL all apart from this one......

This dress is just perfect for me its 1950's styled and strapless but came with a the story continues...The dress was marked down from an original £160 to........£45 which was a bargain in itself! But when I noticed it only had one strap was a bit disappointed so me the bargain hunter asked at the checkout would they be able to do anything for the missing strap. When the girl replied "Well its the only one in stock" I was a little disappointed until she replied "We could give you it for £40 but?" I grabbed at the opportunity to own a coast dress that should be £120 pounds dearer! I think I really will get my wear out of this dress this year and all ready plan on wearing it to my 16th birthday dinner with my family!

Well I hope everyone else had a good weekend like me! I'm off to snuggle down and watch some titanic and well done Matthew for winning dancing on Ice he was amazing loved both him and Chico this series but happy Matthew won :)!

So did anyone else get some amazing bargains at the weekend????

I've got a spring in my step! And shopping haul!

Hello my lovely's!

How are we all??? Hope everyone's enjoying their weekend! Well I think springs finally reached Scotland!
I'm so sorry that I haven't been posting frequently but I promise I am trying to! I am aiming to try and post every Sunday and at least 2 day's a week but studying has taken over so I do apologise! I would also like to say thanks to all my new followers! |Every time I seem to go on the number increases so thanks!

A Spring Is In My Step!
Make up is: Benifit tinted moisturiser in shade light
MUA black eye shadow used for lining
and philosophy's toasted marshmallow lip gloss over benifit's jing a ling lipstick

 So yesterday I headed off to the Capital for a spot of shopping, I am going to my cousins wedding in 3 weeks time and had to get my outfit sorted! This was the main reason I went to visit my favourite shop.  I ended up getting the dress that I had been eyeing up for weeks now from my favourite shop on this planet...Jojo's Boutique! If you are ever in Edinburgh you must check this little shop out or check out their website! It sells vintage 1950's styled dresses and since I am a huge vintage fan I just had to visit it!

This is the dress I got (there is a petticoat under it to show what it looks like better and cardigan also they are not from the same shop)

I don't think this picture gives the dress any favours but I promise that I will post a picture of me wearing it at the wedding. The dress has a floral print with red flowers and green leafs on a white background I haven't managed to get anything to go along with it yet so more shopping hauls are guaranteed!

The next shop I popped into was Zara, I never usually venture into this particular shop as I always find the price a little over my budget but since I have been saving I decided to have a look! And I am so silly!  I don't know why on earth I ever thought that to be honest! Some of there thing's are a Little over my budget but I managed to pick up 2 items which I adore and came in at under £10! I picked up the white basic cardigan which is shown with the dress above and on the picture below and a navy basic long racer back with a zip vest. I browsed the shop and had a look at the sale section and found both items and was pleasantly surprised that the majority of the items were Large which was perfect for me! I love both items and they are nice together and the white cardigan goes perfectly with my dress!

I also popped into LaSenza as I needed a strapless bra to wear with my dress since it is a halter neck. I ended up coming out the shop with 3 for only £20 which was an amazing bargain as the 3 together would have cost £60!

I also popped into primark and picked up a few things. I must say I am absolutely loving the Primark through in Edinburgh the variety in clothing is huge and with 4 floors of women's clothing no wonder! Primarks new spring/summer clothing is amazing right now with "copy's" of high end clothes the only difference being the price! i do feel the quality of their clothes has decreased recently but at the price  I can't really argue! Although in saying this  I picked up a few holiday clothes including: A pair of long denim shorts and long chino blue shorts along with a white blouse which are all perfect for my holidays.

I also picked up 3 pairs of shoes since I fell in love with all of them! And I have sadly has to fling out all of my other flat shoes as I have wore them to death! I really love these 3 pairs as they go with just about everything in my wardrobe!  also picked up a pack of pastel coloured hair bands and bobbles because I loved the spring colours!

Finally the last place I picked stuff up in was Boots and I only picked up 1 thing :( But it was my amazing hand food so I'm not that sad!

So that's all for tonight's post I hope you's all enjoyed! And I hope you all had a lovely Mother's day! I'm off to watch the rest of Dancing on Ice with my mama!


P.S It's less than a week till Hunger Games!!!!!
