I buckled the other day and bought a bouquet of those really-tacky-yet-secretly-fantastic glittery flowers from Tesco after a colleague of mine returned from her lunch break with some. I had been eyeing these up since Christmas and when I spotted them discounted at around £1.85, I nabbed them. I didn't nab them, I paid for them. They're pastel in colour so perfect for spring, and sparkle in the sunlight. Some other mentionable items I have acquired include a lip-shaped lipstick and two giveaway wins; a pack of Aero Bubbles and a set of three Eucerin Even Brighter products worth over £60.
I'm looking to get beach ready for September as my friends and I are embarking on a trip of a lifetime and to say I'm excited is an understatement. We are extending our British Summer (if we ever get one) and jetting off to America for a road trip around the West Coast, landing in Los Angeles and heading anti-clockwise to San Diego, Las Vegas, San Francisco and back to LA. We will be travelling through Yosemite National Park and ending our journey down Route 1 to see the fantastic coastal view. We may even 'pop' into Mexico while we're in San Diego. The trip is being based on the Hangover films, the National Geographic channel and Man vs Food and we will be travelling by two 4x4 off-road cars. We will be doing and eating as many American things as we can and have set ourselves a holiday challege to convince as many Americans to believe a persona we have fabricated and adopted. We are under strict orders to eat well, exercise, come up with challenges/personas, save money and not fall out. We have already adopted Party In The USA by Miley Cyrus* as our song, as it is a secret love of ours even though the majority of the group are male and because it's entirely relevant - I'm even making sure that we pack a dream and cardigan into our carry-ons for when we hop off our ride at LAX. I have been annoying everyone with variations of the song including its goat-form and Pitch-Perfect-form. While in LA, I plan on doing some industry research to see if moving to LA for work is a realistic option. I also plan on drunkenly convincing at least one friend to get hitched in Vegas. What fun!
