My Weekend Bag

I am off to a spa for the night (Champney’s Spa) for my friends hen do and to say I am excited is a total understatement. I rarely ever have a night away from Jake and can count on one hand how many times I have since he has been born. This will be the first night I have left Jake with James for the night as usually James and I are together.

Jacob will be fine with his dad… and it will do us all good I think. Good for me to relax and spend time with my friends, and Jacob used to not having me there at night and knowing daddy can get up too haha. (Sorry James..!! LOL)

I got my bag out and I love this bag as I can fit so much into it, it is also sentimental as it was my hospital bag when I was in hospital with little Jake. First thing I always pack is clothes for the next day. I will wear the same jeggings and just change my top, I am sure we will spend the majority of the time in a robe anyway. 

I have this lovely Champney’s bag that I got with a gift set and I have packed all my minis and essentials, toothbrush, toothpaste, mini body lotion, shower gel and skincare. Luckily I have all the minis of what I use so that is so handy! As you can see I’m taking everything. Even a bit of make up. 

I am not taking my laptop as staying away from Social Media for the 2 days and night. I will have my phone though as will need to be contactable just in case and I will want to speak to Jake about 100 times haha. So I will be taking my charger, and my straighteners.

Also packed a couple of girly films and face masks for the 5 of us. 

I am going to do a post of the spa trip, so will take lots of photos as will be taking them anyway as its a hen do. Cant wait to share the experience with you all. XX

Primark Haul


I don’t usually do Primark Hauls as I’m usually just getting the boring stuff. I don’t think I’ve met anyone that doesn’t like a rummage in Primarni haha.

I had a quick dash in there today as found myself in Brighton and wanted to pick up another pair of the black jeggings I wear to work, they’re so comfortable. I did have them in a size 10 but they were massive on me. More like a 12 so now I have two pairs of size 8’s, just a warning in case you do go and get them… try them on as you may need to go down a size.

Next on my agenda was getting a couple of cosy/warm jumpers. I wanted a cardigan type that I can leave over the sofa and just chuck on when I get chilly. I got the idea from mum as hers looked super cosy the other day.

Then I saw some grey little slipper sock type things, they are teddy bear material and oh my they are so comfy, as soon as I got them home they were on my feet. Need to be a bit careful going up and down the stairs though.I ventured into the beauty section which I never tend to do but I saw these 3 brushes that looked quite interesting. I wanted a new angled brush and a small blusher brush as I only have my Zoeva one that I really like so wanted another like it.

The small pink thing claims to be a face cleansing pad but I thought I would give it a whirl to see how good it is at cleaning my brushes, the angled brow brush I wanted one for ages with a spoolie on the end but didn’t want to pay ยฃ15 for one. So hopefully this will do the job nicely.

The weird looking kidney shaped thing is a thing to soak your nails in, thought it would be a good addition to my nail kit along with the buffers, can never have too many of those bad boys!

Please link in the comments if you’ve done any Primark hauls as want to make another visit soon! X
