Weekly Summary

My exit package from work as been accepted. They originally quoted my sum wrong (very frustrating) but quite quickly corrected it and i promptly signed on the dotted line. My last day of service will officially be the 31st of June, eek, but i'll be able to leave a few weeks earlier as i'll have to take my annual leave beforehand. It's exciting yet scary, afterall this as been my first and only job since leaving 6th form so you can say i've been stuck in my comfort zone for the past few years or so. I do totally think that this is the right decision for me though, i've been there for 7.5 years now and wasn't really progressing to where i wanted to be, i want a new challenge, something fresh and different. The job search will now commence (Mainly Office/Secretarial), if anyone as any ideas, tips or websites to job searches etc then it would be greatly appreciated.

* I spent a fantastic weekend firstly with my best friend and then with my bf. Just normal chilled out things as in shopping, meals, cinema, drinks..... i love those kind of weekends.

* I've not long finished reading two books; Sister by Rosamund Lupton and Beautiful by Katie Piper. Both are fantastic reads, definite recommendations from me.

* The savings are going well, no unnecessary spends, checking my online banking regularly and keeping track of my spreadsheet. For a few weeks now i've started to take my own lunch into work and it's amazing how much i've saved.

* Holidays, yay!! Me and my bf are going to York for the weekend the start of May and we're going abroad somewhere (not yet decided) July/August time. Hoping to fit in a break away with the girls too.

* I've finally got a camera for my Tripod, i love it, expect more outfit posts from me ;).

* A few of my friends are going through a hard time at the moment. I hate seeing nice people going through such unnecessary sh*t, especially when there's nothing i can do, fingers crossed things will be sorted for them real soon.

Hope you're all well and you all have a fantastic weekend.

My weekend consisted of:

* Presents for a friends birthday. We met up on Saturday and went for lunch at Frankie & Benny's and then did a spot of shopping.

* I bought the following Yves Saint Laurent Belle D'Opium Perfume gift set, 50ml Perfume, Body Lotion and Shower Gel. I absolutely adore this perfume, it smells amazing, definitely one of my favourites.

* New accessories for my Nikon Camera.

* My blue nose bear from my bf. How cute!!!

* I've been tidying around my room this afternoon and i thought i'd show you my Urban Decay Palettes, i love them <3.

I hope you all had a lovely weekend.
