Happy Easter everyone!
These last couple of weeks have been crazy. I’ve become so so lazy with my blog posts, I’m just making most of my time off work and University. Most of my holidays has been spent in front of the television and pigging out on pre easter chocolate eggs and cakes. I know I’ve put the weight on…
Here is just a round up of what I’ve been upto.
Firstly I went to visit a close friend in Essex, lovely spending time with her again. I had the infamous spray tan at Lauren Goodgers salon in Buckhurst Hill, sampled some delicious home cooked Indian food, traveled around London and managed to browse my old vintage shops in the east end. I found the most amazing pair of lime green levi shorts from Brick Lane, such a bargain! I absolutely adore London, I think I have a love affair going off with the place, wish I could live there again.
The second week was spent back in my hometown with my best friend Holly. We went to the local fair, going on the bumper cars numerous times, who knew driving cars into one another could be so much fun. Ha!
I’ve had a great time back home, it’s so lovely to just relax and see old friends and family again. I’ll be back in Cornwall over the next few days or so.
So just to let you know I’ve not completely abandoned my blog, I will be returning to my weekly posts and choosing my pick of the week and reflecting on my last couple of months at University. These last three years have gone so fast!!!
Hope you enjoy reading my future posts and the rest of your Easter Sunday!
Up and coming reality tv star Lauren Goodger, of The Only Way Is Essex, has recently launched her own salon in Buckhurst Hill, Essex. Fans are now able to get up, close and personal with the it girl of Essex and sample her new range of self tan. With myself being such a big fan of the show I simply had to visit the salon to try out the infamous spray tans. Priced only at fifteen pounds with a free glass of bubbly it gives you a glimpse into the glamorous world of Essex.
Only taking twenty minutes to apply and dry, this is great for cutting out streaky hands and the fear of over tanning certain areas.
At first I was quite shocked at the colour of the lotion due to its intensity, but found after a shower and a few hours later the colour was neutralized and developed into a natural looking tan. It’s been a week since the application and my tan has still not faded. I would definitely fit in with the Essex gang but would also fit in with any Cornwall location. The tan leaves your skin glowing and feeling much healthier, perfect for those summer evenings.
If you are interested in a ‘Lauren’s Way’ tan, she has introduced a tanning lotion, gel and a mousse which has been recommended for its easy application.
Advice – Exfoliate and recommend you use a self tanning mitt to avoid those orange stained hands.

Nearly half way into the series of TOWIE, the sixth episode was dedicated to valentines day for the Essex girls and boys. Lucy Mecklenburgh and Mario Falcone are clearly back on after there romantic dinner at Alex’s. Sam Faiers was mistaken for Carol Wright after new hair cut, she even looks like her too, move on Mark! Lauren Goodger is on the look out for a new man, maybe Ricky Rayment would take her fancy? He has being said to be the new Mark Wright on the scene, more like his son, he hasn’t even reached puberty yet. This guy fails to impress the average woman, maybe in Essex there isnt anyone else to look at. Arg is much better than him, what are you thinking Lydia!
Lauren Pope and Chloe Simms are the same in every episode, just stand and stare and look a guys and gossip about their own boob sizes. Joey Essex and new best friend Diags have their eyes on newcomer Georgina Dorsett, a property developer that claimed she didn’t know anyone before the programme and who is also well known for been best friends with the ‘Saturdays’ band mate Rochelle. Lydia and Arg have officially broken up, thank goodness. Arg needs to grow some balls and forget about her, she’ll come back when she realizes you are ‘Mr Big’. He needs to stop banging on about her in every episode!
The show struggles to bring in an interesting storyline now without Mark Wright. Arg has had to result in hanging around with Joey and Diags and pretending to be friends with Sam. The whole ‘Marg’ thing was the key thing that was keeping the show together, however there is news to be a new family moving into Essex soon, lets see who…
