The not so..Love hair Megasale

Hello bloggers,
I was meant to post this ages ago but i got caught up with my first exam, which was on Wednesday.
Last week Saturday there was the 'LOVE HAIR MEGASALE' which i thought no one knew about and to be honest was kept on a low, - I was trying not to mention it to too many people-. Well, basically they were selling Brazilian, Peruvian and Indian hair half price.
So, i got really excited swapped my shift and worked from 9am to 1pm, got changed and made my way to East London straight away.
On the tube a girl approached us and asked us if we were going to 'the Hub' which is exactly where we ( my sister and my friend Nmah ) were going. I'm still asking myself "How did she know we were going there?".But, she was really sweet and funny.
Anyways to cut the story short, we got there and there were so many girls. it was a total madness WHY? well, they advertised it on facebook, therefore everyone in London knew about it.
As were walking towards the building a random girl said "if you don't have a ticket forget it, you ain't going nowhere"
We got our tickets, anyways AH! too bad mine was number 393. However, we were lucky because Nmah's friend (Dammy) got there before us and she had number 188...but the queue was going really slowly!!!
P.s the girl that had number 2 was there from 4am and they opened the gates at 2pm !!!!!!!

So we decided to go to eat something -it was a KFC salad for me, i am still on a diet !!!-. Then we headed back to 'The Hub'.
We waited and waited and waited and finally they called numbers from 180 to 190 , so she goes in and guess what?


Basically we waited for no was 7pm and we had been there from 2.30pm!!!! we were so upset but we decided to go on a shopping trip to Westfield where i bought a bunch of things from H&M and a pair of grey Toms !! i'll include the picture in the next post...
Well at least we didn't go home empty handed !

That's it for now

Super bass

Hey there!
by the way the title of this post is a bit random, just wanted to state Nicki Minaj's new song, i love the videoooo !

i haven't blogged in a while and it's irrelevant to say that i have been revising, because that is my number one excuse but i seriously do revise a lot !

Anyways , exams are finally coming up and it's got to the point where i really want to just sit those exams to enjoy my LONGGGGGGG summer! (20th June- 26th Sept) and to get out of my college.

What have i been up to lately?
Well, I'm currently on a diet and I'm hoping to loose all the extra fat before the end of summer, so I'm killing myself at the gym, well not literally but you know what i mean !
On Wednesday i went to a 45 minutes spinning class for the first time and i can guarantee that i never sweated that much in my whole life! additionally i couldn't sit down properly for the following two days because those bikes were so UNCOMFORTABLE ! I'm fine now!

However, I managed to sit down by a computer to order a pair of wedges from Urban Outfitters, I don't know why they charge £4.99 for delivery ! Fair enough, I ordered the shoes on Wednesday and they were delivered by Friday, but £4.99 is a lot of money when you are broke!
Also got some make up and nail polish ! woop woop !
the lipsticks are Sleek, which is what i call cheap Mac, but they had a great 2 for 5.99 deal at superdrugs , so i thought "well, why not??"

By the way, I'm finally using twitter for real ( i signed up in 2009 and used it like twice, but I'm getting addicted now ) , so if you wanna talk , follow me @LindaOkachi

That's it for now ! I'm off for a cup of green tea and then bed, i have a 9 am- 1pm shift waiting for me tomorrow

Keep smiling xx

What's the time?

Hey dolls !

You know the feeling when you order something online and you can't wait for the delivery day as soon as you click on 'confirm order'?

Well, I'm always super excited when it comes to online shopping - i do get excited for little things anyway- however, Thursday was the infamous delivery day but when the postman came no one was home- I was in college ! he left one of those annoying "something for you" notes.

Since i work on Fridays and i go to college in the morning i was only able to get it today..

It's a gold watch from Asos- I mentioned it in the previous post, remember?-

To be honest, I've been quite obsessed with watches lately, i bought a silver watch for only £3.99 in a vintage shop and I'm planning to get a black digital casio as well..

Do you like watches too? What's your favourite piece of jewellery ?

P.S thanks for your lovely comments ladies :):)

Keep Smiling
