There's no place like home..

I have been home (Bristol) from Uni (Plymouth) this week, and although I've probably fallen pretty behind with uni work, I've had the nicest time at home so I don't feel quite so bad as it was definitely what I needed.

I had two pretty good nights out, one of which was very spontaneous, both of which were very drunk, been to party and got to catch up with friends, had a  girly sleepover and some dvd days. In this week home I've probably spent far too much money, watched too many films, not done enough work and ate and drank too much since I've been home but I feel like it's been worth it. It's been lovely seeing my friends and family and it's nice to have my home comforts.

There's not really that much to say about my week at home other than that.


REN: Emollient Rescue Cream

This product has been an absolute lifesaver for my skin recently. I suffer with really dry skin, and always worry about trying new skin products, which meant I had been using the same moisturizers for years, which would make a difference to my skin for about all of  five minutes and left my skin in a horrible state, so I decided to be brave and try something new, and I will definitely not go back.

I first read about this product on a random blog I found when looking for skin care recommendation and as the price isn't too high I decided to pop to M&S and get some. Since I have been using this product my skin has been in a better condition than it has for years.

The moisturizer is a very thick consistency, it  absorbs into the skin quickly, and has a very slight clinical scent to it.
It would definitely recommend this product for those of you with dry skin, especially if your skin is in need of a rescue (I feel the product was named particularly well as it has definitely saved my skin). On the packaging is says suitable for all skin types, however I feel it could be slightly too thick for more oily skin - that however is me assuming, it could be lovely on more oily skin also.

This is the first of the REN products I've tired, so I am looking forward to trying out some more of their products to see if the entire range is this impressive. With my last purchase of this moisturizer, I got a free gift which came with many samples of REN products (you had to buy two items for the range to get the gift, so I bought two lots of this), when I get round to trying all of these products I will do another blog review on the REN products which were included in the gift set.

Me, Myself and I...

Although I have many other posts planned (many make up reviews to come shortly), I decided to put them on hold, and to make my first 'real' post photos and facts about myself.

Sooo here we go,
26 random and pointless facts about me:

  1. I recently became vegetarian 
  2. I'm 22, and yes I still suck my thumb
  3. I'm almost blind in my left eye
  4. I'm the youngest child, I have a brother and sister

  6. I only own two pairs of jeans, usually if I'm wearing them it means I'm in a bad mood

  8. Despite being 22, I still ask my mum everytime I want to do something
  9. My lecturer has nicked named me chole, it seems to have stuck
  10. Although my hair is a ridiculously bright, unnatural red, I get people asking if it's natural at least once a week

  12. My favourite film is (500)Days of Summer
  13. I read before if a crush exceeds four months it's love.. if this were true I've been in love four times. However I wouldn't necessarily believe that
