So I recently did a sky dive for charity! It was for the league of friends of the alex hospital which is my local hospital and it's a small charity that provides the cafe services and fundraising for the hospital. It was literally the most amazing experience of my life so I wanted to fill you in a bit if you are thinking of doing one. 

It's scary af waiting for the sky dive and the little plane you go up in is possibly even scarier, the only thing that really relaxed me was the views and gosh were they amazing. We did our skydive in the countryside as you can imagine and the views of the fields and small villages were simply breathtaking. In fact that breathtaking that I literally forgot i was about to free fall out of a plane. 

It was terrifying but weirdly exciting watching other people jump out of the plane, then it hit my turn. The man shuffled down on the floor and you don't really have time to take in whats happening before you are out. Free falling was absolutely terrifying, mainly the fact I couldn't breathe properly. The instructor I was with pointed upwards so I knew to put my head up up. When I actually caught my breath it was so amazing, there is literally no feeling like it, the rush of adrenalin is crazy. We were free falling for a total of 45 seconds which was actually a mind blowing 13,000 feet! 

My favourite part of all was when the parachute opened up and you could really look at all of the surroundings. The feeling that you are just floating through the air was amazing and of course the views were an added bonus. I felt like I never wanted to come back down to earth. 

The descent was pretty easy, I just put my feet on the instructors and he did all the work. We literally landed feet down and carried on walking, I felt a bit like I was a bond girl walking away from a burning explosion after parachuting to safety ha ha. I did notice that everyone else fell over so felt pretty good about not hurting my bum! 

Overall it was just an amazing experience and although I looked a bit like a weird version of Andy Pandy I would 10000% do it all over again. I feel so privileged to have been given the opportunity to do a sky dive let alone the fact it was for such a good cause! 

In total me and emma raised £1,750 for charity and had the best day of our lives. If you have the chance to do one I would strongly recommend, also why not do it for charity and contribute to an amazing cause that you hold really close to your hearts.

Bicester Village

So finally back to blogging... it's been a long time and literally everything in my life has changed. I got a promotion and moved to a new city and moved out on my own! Anyways enough of that, I went to Bicester village on Friday and it was so wonderful.

I never really expected it to be so clean and lovely, everything looked really neat and the shops were all amazing. I always thought that maybe it wouldn't be so reduced looking at the prices online but you could actually get some good deals. I fell slightly in love with the makeup and perfume shop.

I overly treated myself in my normal fashion and ended up buying a Kate Spade handbag and also some Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation.

I couldn't believe how cheap things were! My double wear foundation which has a usual retail value of £30 ended up being only £21! I was really happy about this as I have wanted to try the double wear for so long but the reductions definitely swayed me. The Cosmetics Company store was really good and it had a large amount of discounted stock, I believe most of it was discontinued or old stock however mac had a lot of the Toledo collection which to be honest isn't really my fave anyways.

However, obviously the star of the show was my new handbag! I couldn't believe it, I literally fell in love when my eyes set sight on it. I really shouldn't have brought it but you know, gotta live by the drake Yolo motto. It was over £300 retail value and I got it for £148.80 as it had an extra 20% off in a private sale! Was really quite expensive and I have never brought a designer bag before but my boyfriend convinced me it was a good idea haha.

Anyways, here is my beautiful new Kate Spade handbag!
