It's been nearly a month since my last post.Oops...

Anyway, today is the 27th of December, two days after Christmas (I'm good at maths) and I wanted to do a Christmassy post of what I got for Christmas!! I'm not trying to brag but instead give you guys an insight on what I like and also for any nosy readers who might be interested in teenage trends :D So off we goooooo...

Stocking yay!! Waking up to a stocking full of goodies is one of the best parts of Christmas, apart from the dinner of course:P

A canvas Jack Wills bag:) I love Jack Wills and this bag will come very in handy as it goes with lots and is just the right size for my phone and purse.

Oh my goodness I got Real Technique makeup brushes. Eeek. I've wanted these for a while and kept picking them up in Boots, Santa must have seen;)

Hollister body spray has the bestest, most beautiful smell and brings tears of joy to my eyes every time I spray it (Slight exaggeration but it smells flipping good and I definitely recommend you put it on your Christmas list next year, nothing like forward planning.)

The Soap and Glory Sugar Crush range is utterly fantastic. The smell is so sweet yet the lime gives it that extra zingy kick that means this stuff smells like no other, I'm in love with it:)) And the Milly loves a bit of coconut too!

A set of mini craft books that I absolutely ADORE! I might attempt a couple and put them up on here:)

Maybelline The Falsies mascara, eyelash curlers and eyebrow brush!? The Falsies I have been longing for for ages and FINALLY I have it: yay, thanks Santa!! He must have known I always end up borrowing my mum's eyelash curlers and eyebrow brush too:p

Split fringe:/ ignore that.
I have a parka, Horray! This one's from Warehouse if anyone wanted to know:) I like it especially because the fur lining is detachable so going into the warmer spring I can detach it, magic!

And these cute little fingerless gloves/mittens from Accesorize are perfect for the remaining cold winter months. The colours and pattern go with my parka and my scarf which I also got for Christmas! My scarf is a neverending one which I have been wanting as I like wearing two loops like in the picture^ and I love the look a neverending one gives:)

And that's it for present showing today! I'm very grateful and thankful for all of them. Let me know what you got for Christmas in the comments below; I love reading and replying to all of them:)

I hope you all had a very merry and happy Christmas and I guess I'll "see" you in 2014! Be prepared for some fantabulous posts.

Cheerio! Milly x

Catch up and my Trip to London

Well hello everyone, long time no see! How are you all? Let's grap a cup of tea and have a good catch up about the lack of blogging recently. Also, I thought I'd share with you my trip to London that happened on Wednesday and Thursday this week. Sounds like a good idea, off we go!!

So my last post was nearly a month ago... A MONTH! But no fear, I'm back and bustling with blogging ideas (like the alliteration?)

First of all, the Christmas Cracker Swap me and my blogger friend Rachel were hosting was a massive fail. No comments on our posts, we were extremely disappointed:( The post has been removed now and we may try again next year. Any feedback on why you didn't get involved would be greatly appreciated in the comments below:)

School, music and diving has been taking up a lot of my time recently. What with being in year 10, GCSE coursework has kicked in as well as tonnes of unwanted homework meaning any spare time I have is taken up doing that... How depressing;) Also music rehearsals for upcoming Christmas concerts and diving training means my free blogging day is usually Sunday unless of Homework, competitions or concerts. I hope now you guys understand! :p

So let's get on to a more cheery note of MY SUPER AMAZING TRIP TO LONDON. This happened on Wednesday and Thursday which meant I got to miss 2 whole days of school, YAY :D It was a GCSE music trip for year 9, 10 and 11, we were all very excited on Wednesday morning with our suitcases and comfy shoes. The trip entailed us going on the London Eye, watching the West-End show Charlie and the Chocolate factory and taking part in a London Symphony Orchestra workshop. As well as dinner at the Rainforest Cafe and staying over at a swanky hotel!:)

The 5 hour coach drive seemed to last 5 years. Stupid traffic jams:(( This was turned around when we stopped at the services and I had a Starbucks Frappe, not as good as Costa but I was still a happy bunny;)

Milly with an ie though:(
We finally got to London, horray! I was devastated when we drove past the GIGANTIC Topshop on Oxford Street knowing we didn't have any time on the tight schedule to do some shopping and I love to shop! :p

The London eye was amazing, I'd been on it before so knew the drill but it was still a laugh being so high above the city!

Because the drive took so friggin long we didn't even get chance to change out of our scruffy travelling clothes to go to dinner and the theatre! We were all extremely disappointed, one of my friends who went spent £68 on a special outfit for it, she wasn't happy.

The Rainforest Cafe omg the atmosphere was amazing and the set up of the place is amazing, it even has it's own little special shop on the top floor! It's special trademark was thundering every 30 mins or so, this wasn't good for the non-thunder lovers... We had the choice of Pasta or Burger, most of us, including me chose burger. The food wasn't that super but the huge fish tank in the middle made up for it;)

Then off we went to watch Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, the best show I've ever seen. Charlie was played by a 9 year old who was incredible! The set was by far the best bit, I well and truly recommend this if you want to go and see a fantastic play. It was actually pretty hilarious as well which is always a bonus!

Then it was time for bed... But Big Bang Theory was on at 2:30 in the morning so not much sleep was had.

The next day was the London Symphony Orchestra workshop which consisted of composition and playing of this very unusual instrument which I've forgotten the name of, oops. It was fantastic:D Good
use of adjectives here, I'm starting to run out... Our composition consisted of a cow mooing, it was all very professional :p

Also check me out wearing the same jumper Zoella bought from her Primark hall^^^

Then we got on the coach back home. We stopped at the services and I had a KFC and some mango, no regrets there:)

So there we go, I hope enjoyed and this extra long post made up for the lack of them these last few weeks. Daily bloggers I look up to you!!

Cheerio! Milly x
