I’m back to blogging!

Hello again! It’s been so long since I wrote a blog post, my last one seems so long ago! I took a break because I started my final year at university and I wanted to put in more effort than the previous two years and plus I was starting my dissertation and that takes up a lot of time, but I am back to blogging. I missed it a lot and missed the community too so I thought I’d slightly update my blog and then post my first new post of 2015 and since I broke from blogging last year.

Well I’m glad I am back and I hope that you will stick around to read the upcoming posts! ๐Ÿ™‚

Film fanatic? 5 old-ish films that I love…

I thought I would do a miniature movie post but not on current movies, instead I thought I would tackle good movies that were released ages ago or what feels like ages ago! I love movies, going to the cinema and just snuggling up watching a film, in my opinion I would say I am quite a film personย purely because I watch a lot of movies all the time new and old and I love itttt!

So in this post I thought I would name a few movies that I have enjoyed in the past and I hope you’ll agree on some of them so let’s go…

  • Titanic – Oh this movie gets me every time and I end up crying about something, mainly the scene where the old couple are on the bed when all the water is rushing in – total sadness! This is on the list as well because I don’t know one person who hasn’t watched it, it has all the elements of a good movie and further to this it’s a classic!

  • Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion – One of my all time favourites! I love it because it’s so incredibly cringey and funny and the songs in it make me happy haha

  • Napoleon Dynamite – You either love it, hate it or haven’t ever watched it! (In that case get watching!) but I love this film purely because it makes me laugh no matter how many times I’ve already watched it.

  • Clueless – I never knew this film even existed until one day when I was in my early teens my mum bought me home the DVD and I thought it was going to be awful but it actually wasn’t it was the opposite!

  • Jurassic Park – One of my beloved childhood films, I can still remember pretty much most of the film by memory but it’s one of my favourites!

Over 500 followers!

So I wanted to do a little post to say a BIG BIG thank you to all my followers! I just spent the last couple of minutes adding up my followers on Bloglovin &ย WordPress and I now have over 500 followers which is brilliant because I never assumed my blog would get this far, so it’s lovely to know there are people out there who love to read what I have to say or like what I just babble on about!

I started my blog just over a year ago now as my blog hit it’s 1st birthday at the end of March and I am so happy that I took the plunge to start blogging because it really is something I enjoy. I was never sure on whether to start blogging as I am a very shy person and pretty much as introverted as an introvert can get! But blogging has helped me in many ways and I have met some wonderful bloggers along the way ๐Ÿ™‚

I shall be doing a giveaway towards the end of the month (April) and I hope that you’ll all be interested in taking part! It’ll be my very first giveaway and I am hoping to make it really cool so stay tuned.

Once again thank you to all my lovely followers! ๐Ÿ™‚

5 things I want to buy…

So I haven’t blogged in a little while and that’s because I’ve not been feeling so well lately but luckily I went to the doctors and I should be feeling much better soon! I have a ton of blog posts to write and I am trying to squish them all out so you all don’t get to bored of me (I hope you already haven’t haha) If you’ve been tagging along on my blog you’ll know I attempted the 30 day photo challenge, sadly I flopped that because I only managed to get to day 19! (Sorry!) However I’m on the look out for other lists/challenges and such to try so if you have any suggestions pass them my way! ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway so I thought I would do a little post about 5 things I want to buy when I have enough money because I am always adding stuff to my mental list in my head! So lets begin…

  1. Running shoes – This is the constant excuse I use for not doing exercise, the lack of proper footwear to do such strenuous activities! I do actually want to get a pair though, running in converse isn’t fun nor comfortable.

  2. BooTea Tea – A ‘teatox’, I’m not usually one for these sort of products as I rarely believe in them however after a good duration reading their website and also looking at other girls results on twitter, I’m going to give it a go just purely because I am trying to be more healthier from this point onward. (Google them if you’ve never heard of them, it’s worth it!)

  3. Soap & Gloryโ„ข Thick & Fast Flash Extensions Mascara High Definition Collagen Coat – I was looking for a long time for a new mascara, I like to keep my make up natural but I like my eyes to stand out and I don’t really use liquid eyeliner that much so I like to choose a mascara that gives me lots of definition and ‘oomph’ shall we say.

  4. Ritual Fortune Scrub – I got my first taste of the Ritual products from a magazine a while back (Perhaps GLAMOUR? Can’t remember!) and I tried the Ritual Fortune Scrub, now when I got my sample with the magazine I was surprised it was a full blown big bottle not the tiny little itty bitty samples you usually get so I was excited and hopeful that I liked this product because I had a ton of it in this sample. IT SMELLS LIKE PARADISE! literally, I feel like I’m on holiday in an exotic paradise when I use this! I usually don’t rate shower gels or scrubs because I’m never that impressed but this one is different! If you’ve tried it you’ll agree where I’m coming from and if you haven’t then you can buy it online quite cheap I believe ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Eyebrow threading – Okay so I have something to admit, I shaved off one eyebrow BY ACCIDENT! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ You’d think I’d know better, but was totally accidental (I bet you’re all laughing now) So I lost my tweezers and as a student I couldn’t afford to have my eyebrows threaded/waxed again for a while so I quickly used a razor to try and get rid of the bottom hairs and the razor caught the rest of my eyebrow in the process! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ (If you weren’t laughing earlier bet you are now) So for a while I’ve been using an eyebrow pencil and you can’t see that it was shaved off viciously but now they’re kinda grown back (HOORAY!!!) so soon I shall pay for my eyebrows to be threaded ๐Ÿ™‚

That’s my 5 things I need to buy when I have the money, I hope you enjoyed it! Comment/like/subscribe/Tweet if you like lovelies! ๐Ÿ™‚

Image

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to all my followers! My blog as of today has hit the enormous amount of 10,000 hits! Hooray!

When I first started my blog I never imagined anyone would be interested in what I had to say or wanted to talk about but I have seen how wrong I am, the blogging community on WordPress, Blogger, Twitter, Facebook, Bloglovin and Better Blogging Network have all been such lovely people and I’ve made some super blogging friends as well! ๐Ÿ™‚

My blog’s birthday is near which will be another wonderful milestone! On March 29th my blog will be 1 year old and I am looking forward to that a lot!

So because I reached 10,000 hits on my blog and gained so many followers as well as having my blog’s birthday soon I will be doing a giveaway on April 29th to celebrate everything! ๐Ÿ™‚

30 Day Photo Challenge – DAY 17 RAIN

So day seventeen is rain, miraculously in England the weather has been rather sunny the past few days when in fact it’s usually raining! so that made this day in the challenge the hardest yet and I had to think outside the box. So instead of just going in my shower and splashing the water around and calling that rain I decided to choose a photo I took back in November on Fireworks night and explain ๐Ÿ™‚

So the idea behind this photo is that the fireworks are the rain in this sense and the colours are bursting out like beads of rainfall ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ยฃ18 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)ย 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!)ย 

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! ย 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! ๐Ÿ™‚
