8 random little things I love!

If you had to think of 8 random things you love, what would they be? Some may come to you straight away and others may take a while and then you think “I love that!” and you had forgotten why you love those things! Well I thought I would do a list of 8 random things I love, some might even be the same as you! 🙂

  1. The sound of rain – There is something so peaceful about the sounds of rainfall, I like when it properly pours down heavily and the sound as it hits the ground and all the houses. (I don’t however like getting cold and getting my hair wet though!)

  2. Eating delicious goodies – muffins, cakes, cookies, brownies the list is endless and to me nothing is better than coming home from uni, sitting down with a cup of tea and a muffin with a magazine or newspaper!

  3. Honey Boo Boo – If you don’t know who this little girl is Google her! To some she’s an inspiration, to others she’s full of comedy gold as the quote goes, I remember watching her and her family in the first series like WHAT AM I WATCHING?! but I love it and I love the meme’s and GIFS that come with the fame of being Honey Boo Boo!

  4. Funny animals – Oh how magical it is that the internet is flooded with animals doing all sorts of funny, crazy and cute things!

  5. When a great song comes on the music channels, turning it up super loud and jumping around the room – There’s really nothing more to add to that one ahah!

  7. Holiday excitement – You know when you’re going away on holiday or you just booked a holiday and you imagine yourself chilling on the beach, relaxing with a cocktail in hand or trekking and seeing all the sights and you get all excited inside!

  8. When I write blog posts + other bloggers appreciate them – Okay so sometimes I lack motivation to blog, but I love it when I put up posts and I get lots of lovely comments and likes, it’s always lovely to talk to other bloggers and see that they like my little blog 🙂

EYEBROWS – Waxing or Threading?

So this is a post I talked about when I first started blogging back last year and I am coming back to it because I have a different view on it now, back last year in my post I actually contemplated whether waxing or threading was better having only ever threaded my eyebrows (Terrible judgement I know!) and I went on what others had told me about waxing.

Now it is safe to say I have tried and tested both out, after being frightfully scared of waxing my eyebrows I finally bit the biscuit and had Benefit wax my brows for me for the first time before I was set to go on holiday. Now I have had my eyebrows threaded since I started to become to lazy to tweeze them (Who wants that long enduring pain and arm ache?) and have been having them threaded for at least 3 years now if not more, however Benefit were doing a tint and wax for £18 so I decided to go for that as my holiday was a day away and I wanted some well shaped brows to accompany me.

So you are all wondering, how did it go right?…

Well I was nervous, I didn’t have much leg room and there was two other floor staff watching the woman wax my eyebrows because they were not as busy when I went in so at first it was awkward. Once I was settled in properly and no one else was watching (The bystanders just wandered off) I was more relaxed & happy, the wax itself wasn’t too hot and the actual procedure of ripping the wax strips off my eyebrows was not to bad! It hurt for like 3 seconds and then it was over (Relief!) 

Now you are all asking threading or waxing?….

Well threading is a longer procedure sometimes, it is painful to many people but to some it is relatively painless just remember you have to sit in a chair for roughly 5+ minutes without fidgeting otherwise you may accidentally lose an eyebrow!  It does however look lovely afterwards and up keep is a little easier as the hairs do not grow back so quickly and it’s always relatively cheap!

Waxing is a little painful but in my opinion not more painful than threading. It also looks lovely afterwards but waxing is always a little more expensive than threading because of the equipment used, also waxing can sometimes be a little harsher on sensitive skin because the wax has direct skin contact.

Comment and let me know your preferred method! 🙂

  8. I completed Grand Theft Auto 5 in just about 4 days, I got very little sleep but it was worth it.

4 Things I Really Want This Summer!

Okay so I love Summer just like everyone else, It’s not my favourite season but it’s still a nice season the only two reasons I dislike Summer is because 1. It sometimes gets waaaay to hot and 2. Just because it’s hot everyone thinks it’s an excuse to go out half naked… Anyway I love Summer because it brings out some beautiful fashion trends and I think the sun just makes everything seem a bit better, so without further ado here are 4 things I really want for summer! 🙂

  1. Flower Headband – These are so beautiful  I really adore them so much and I think they look really quite beautiful on any hair colour or length 🙂

  2. A long skirt – Seems a little unspecific but I really want a long skirt to my knees or below, I love skirts and sometimes I prefer longer skirts to shorter ones so this is something I want for Summer as I already have some short ones.

  3. A cute colourful bright satchel – I already own a satchel or two but I keep seeing these brightly coloured vibrant satchels around and I would love one especially in red!

Collection 2000 Colour Pout Lip stain Review

I brought this about a week ago in a local beauty store because I was getting fed up of my lipstick not staying all day and I love beautiful vibrant lips!

The shade I got was in Kiss which is like a dark pinkish/natural sort of shade I guess it could be said, I had a tough time picking which one out of the collection was closest to my natural lips and it happened to be this one because my lips are naturally quite dark pink anyway.

So once I got home I excitedly tried it on and found that it was super easy to apply to my lips and wasn’t bulky or thick either like some others. Because it is shaped as if it was a pencil it makes it easy to draw the outline of your lips which is something that most girls dream about! Instead of fussing over smudges or uneven lines or application.
I also love the taste and smell of it as well, sounds pretty weird and I’m not sure if that’s a feature of the product or just me – but something that smells good and doesn’t leave a horrid taste in your mouth if it accidentally gets in there is a win by my standards.

Well anyway with long lasting durability, great easy application and beautiful shade of colours I’d rate this quite highly.

Nail polish review on my top 3 favourites right now!

I love nail polish, I love the range of different colours you can buy and I’m impressed with the different types like glow in the dark or magnetic! Now I always usually keep up with my nails making sure that if they start chipping I either apply another coat or I just take it off all together. I tend to go for nail varnishes that will last a few days if not weeks and I myself tend to go for a range of colours but I always avoid yellow as it’s not a colour I like in the form of nail varnish but everyone’s different! 🙂

So I decided to do a small review of three of my favourite nail polishes:

Nails Inc, London Magnetic Polish in 052 Houses of Parliament.

This was a present from my sister and I love it! The colour is a really classy colour and I love the fact that the top of the lid has a magnet in it so when you hover it above the nail varnish it changes the pattern of it. Durability wise this is great as it lasts a long time around about a week I found and even longer with a clear coat on top! So a definite winner 🙂 I have used it loads of times and the bottle is still full! So this is great for someone who paints their nails loads of times and wants the bottle to last for the price. Only disadvantage is that if you lose the lid then you cant do anything about changing the pattern of it! So be careful.

Barry M Nail Paint in 352 Pink Sapphire Glitter.

I love this nail polish because it’s so glittery and sparkly! Especially in sun! The colour is a mixture of beautiful pieces of glitter in various pink shades and some silver as well. It’s one of my favourites because it goes with so many other nail polishes, especially pink based ones, it goes great as the top coat and creates a really cute look and its easy and fuss free.
Durability wise it last a rather long time which is good because I like my nail varnishes to last a good amount of time and plus with this one it minimizes cracking and chipping of the nails as well – Win!

Sally Hansen Hard As Nails in 49 Dahlia .

I love this shade of pink! In the bottle it seems quite dark but on my hands it comes out rather bright and looks so glossy which is why I love it. It’s also very durable and can with stand all the day to day tasks your hands go through which is always a good point with regards to nail polish.
The bottle lasts a long time and the brush is a nice size as well which makes me love this nail varnish even more 🙂

Well that’s my little review on 3 of my favourite nail polishes! Hope you enjoyed 🙂
