i love these lipsticks, the colours are gorgeous. i've tried topshop's eyeshadows which were absolutely terrible so i won't be buying any of these. the eyeshadows had no pigment and were very crumbly. i do love topshops nail polishes though, the colours are always spot on.

long distance

me and christian some time last year. living so far away from each other isn't easy, but this is the longest we've been away from each other ever. i miss him a lot and can't wait to see him in a couple of weeks!

my purse was stolen a week or so ago, and i thought, better to be safe than sorry!

so i rang up as soon as i got home and canceled my bank card. turns out that was the worst thing i can do, the bank sent my new card AND my pin to some random address, and whoever received emptied my bank account yesterday.
just my luck!

i'm waiting on a call from the 'fraud department' sounds exciting no? i'm really hoping i get my money back otherwise it's gonna be a very miserable christmas for me!

21 21 21

i'm 21!

i celebrated my 21's birthday last saturday. my parents turned my bedroom into a club (it was awesome!) and had a traditional kids party complete with triangle sandwiches, caterpillar cake and party bags. i got to see all the girls which was amazing, and then we had a standard harrogate night out. i had an amazing day, definitely one to remember!

here's a few pictures of the night and some presents i got :)

absence makes the heart grow fonder

but makes a blog so lonely!

i haven't blogged in so long and my blog is starting to get cobwebs. so much has changed since my last post that i've been putting off and off a catch up post. which in turn made it an even bigger job which i put off even more, anyway you know what i mean!

so super quick catch up.. i'm all moved into uni and have already started my second project.

loving living away from home, and actually surviving pretty well. (turns out i'm actually quite the domestic goddess!)

me and my fabulous flatmates on one of our many great nights out!

 anyway i'm loving life at the minute, and that pretty much sums it up!

one of the things i'm looking forward to the most over the coming year is actually having more time to blog.

i'm going to study at uclan, preston, on the 2nd year of BA digital graphics. it's getting to that exciting point where there's only a week left until i move in. and am i at all ready? absolutely not. i've moved all of my clothes i wear the most onto one of my clothing rails and mums given me some old plates etc and that's about it.

if anyone goes to uclan or is staying at trinity student village feel free to add me on facebook/rachaelwoods as i currently know no one!

anyway i really have no energy to write about anything right now but this blog post feels a bit empty without a picture so here

 you stay classy san diego.

 i figured i needed a cool way to end my post and that was all i could think of. i need sleep.

turkey summer 2011

had a lovely time in turkey with my roz and abi. won't go into to much detail.. there's not much to tell.. most nights we were tucked up in bed before 12 with a quality katie price novel!
we could of gone out every night, but to be quite honest we were more than happy just just chill out. i'm now worrying i'm getting old.
also turkish chicken kebab wraps are amazing, i'd go back for one right now if i could.

geordie shore

i LOVE geordie shore. however one comment (from an american that annoyed me) was ‘it’s great to finally see a true representation of student culture in britain’ because what you see on geordie shore is an extreme portrayal of what we really get up to.

however i feel this ^ is a spot on portrayal of us all. oh come on, we’ve all been there.

also loving made in chelsea and cannot wait until the only way is essex is back on.

i wrote to the bbc asking if they wanted to come make 'the only way is knaresborough' but apparently we're not interesting/dumb/glamorous/outrageous enough. we do have an excellent market on a wednesday though.

a big long catch up

i haven't posted anything personal on here in such a long time, so here's my life in pictures over the past few months..

ripley ice cream! (christian refused to eat his cos he said it was too creamy. what??)

temporary eyelash extensions! they lasted the whole three weeks (i actually pulled them off in the end) and looked ossum. if i was rich i'd get them all the time.

finally figured out how to curl my hair in less than 3 days

'let's see if we can see all the states in america!' i now know all of them off by heart.

grandma and dyson!

got my make up done at mac in liverpool

had a go at doing it myself ;)

packing for my jollys with christian!

our lovely little cottage

and in jigsaw form..

and an expertly crafted fire
