An Update- Meadowhall and Boat Cruising!

Thursday, 29 September 2011

I have really been slacking with blog posts recently. It has been a crazy few weeks and I only just managed to sit down now. With the hubby out for a couple of hours and my little ones asleep, I thought I'd get an update fit in.

I was at Meadowhall shopping centre yesterday- I didn't actually purchase anything (yes I was surprised too) but did take some pictures of a few products and brands that interested me.
17 seem to have a lot of nice sets that are out. I thought the eyeshadow palette's in the top row seemed like a pretty good deal at £5 a palette. All Christmas gift sets are on offer at 3 for 2 at the moment so it can really help you to get some bargains!

Front Cover make up comes out every year and they seem to get some good reviews. I haven't actually tried their products before but they seem like a pretty affordable brand.
Soap and Glory are very popular in the UK. I'm pretty sure their products are available in the USA too now. I love their Christmas sets, they really do have great deals on!

Lastly, I was mesmerized by some products in this aisle. These are the kind of things I would love to have in my bedroom because I love little accessories like these that give character to them.

I actually came out of Meadowhall with nothing but a pair of trainers my daughter needed. For me, this definitely was an achievement; I'm not sure I feel too happy about it now though!

I also went on a little boat cruise, just here in Sheffield today. We always tend to want to go out of town to explore different places but never look into the places here. We decided to go down to Victoria Quays where there is a lovely canal.

 It was incredibly hot today so it was lovely to have the breeze coming in from the window's as we cruised by. There were plenty of fishermen on the banks who waved to us as well - Well apart from one who seemed particularly bad tempered and decided to make a rude gesture- it could have been because the boat almost ran his fishing line over though, which makes it ok? =/
 My little boy loved it too and was walking up and down the boat the whole time.

It was lovely to have a different sort of an afternoon mid-week when usually I am looking forward to the weekend at this point.

I have a few posts lined up in the next few days. I will get back on track now that I really feel like I have a little more time hopefully!

How have you all been? Have you been up to anything interesting recently?
