Day 1 – 10 Facts about me!

So I started my little blog challenge a few days later than I originally planned but let’s get a move on now it’s started! So day 1 was 10 facts about myself to share with you all. I’ve done a few of these before so apologies if you’ve already read a fact or two I’ve put before 🙂

  1. I have a double jointed thumb. I happen to think it’s pretty cool, I always used this to my advantage playing thumb wars!
  2. In less than a years time I will be graduating!
  3. I like to put my make up on in the morning, wash my hair and paint my nails. I know some people hate these tasks but I love them!
  4. I think I’m allergic to peel off face masks. This could of course be fact but also maybe just me assuming, as I’m not sure… (my skin starts burning, gets red and irritated and then stings when I use them so who knows!)
  5. Sometimes I get overly worried and panicky.
  6. Sometimes I am confident in myself, others times not so much.
  7. I love Lasagna and cheese more than I should.
  8. I have irrational fear of seals, killer whales and crocodiles.
  9. I love sharks, they’re my fav!
  10. I love going on holiday. (But doesn’t everyone!)

So that’s my little list of facts about me and I hope you liked it, tomorrow will be day 2 which is describing the last place I went on holiday so stick around! 🙂

The 90’s Kid Tag! The glorious year of 1993…

So I was looking at some other lovely bloggers blogs and I came across a 90’s kid tag on Lauren’s blog! If you’d love to take a look or go to her blog then you can check it out here – http://keepcalmitsonlyablog.blogspot.co.uk/2014/04/blast-from-past-calling-all-90s-kids.html

I was born in 1993 so I thought that I would give this a shot because it seemed cute and it’s always nice to be nostalgic now and then! So let’s get started…


1. Favourite Disney film?
The Lion King, The Little Mermaid and probably Snow White. (On the topic of films however, I did watch one with my dad when I was little called ‘The 10th Kingdom’ and it was one of my favourites for a while although it’s not Disney I thought I’d throw that in)
 
2. NSYNC or Backstreet Boys?
Neither personally, however my sister loved to listen to Backstreet Boys constantly.
 
3. Favourite candy/sweets?
I liked ring pops, nothing was more glamorous than them! 
 
4. Weirdest fashion trend?
I spent most my childhood happily dressing in camouflage clothing as I loved it! (Bearing in mind I am the daughter of a ex-soldier) and I also remember I had a two piece set, which was long trousers and a crop top in a bright yellow colour (Hahaha!) But I also had a pair of silver glittery jelly heels! 
5. Favourite music artist/band?
Spice Girls and S Club 7 for sure! (Personally my favourite song by S Club 7 was reach for the stars! hahah)
6. Favourite game? (board game, playground)
I had a favourite playground game, I can’t remember the name now but it was something to do with oranges! 
7. What would you watch on TV after school & Favourite TV shows?
Art Attack,Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Hey Arnold, Arthur, Rupert, Little Bear,The Queen’s Nose, Rosie and Jim, Bill and Ben just to name a few! 
8. Favourite book?
I read mostly Saddle Club, Roald Dahl and Jacqueline Wilson books. Although I did have a lot of pet related books because I would always nag my parents for an animal, any animal and in this desire I would end up buying lots of animal care related books.
9. Favourite clothing store?
I can’t remember! 
10. 90’s beauty memories?
Bright blue & green eye shadow, roll on body glitter, crimped hair and hair braids. I also liked to get the children’s make up from the supermarkets, you know the kind that were in the toy area and smelled like plastic but were in ravishing shades of dark pinks and purples!
11. Favourite McDonalds happy meal toy?
I can’t really remember the toys I got from McDonalds back then sadly but I do remember going to McDonalds with one of my older sister’s and her friends.
 
12. Favourite toy?
I collected tons and tons of Pokemon stuff, cards, toys everything you name it. I also loved barbies, I had a mermaid one that when you put her tail in water it changed different colours! I also had a Tamogotchi a little baby pink one in the shape of an egg 🙂
So that’s my 90’s kid tag and if you were born in the 90’s why don’t you give it a go as well? Comment and let me know 🙂

30 day photo challenge!

So I have been seeing a lot of the 30 day photo challenges around lately and after looking at loads I couldn’t find one that suited me so I decided to make my own one up because after all its just for fun anyway! I am starting it tomorrow because I’m too impatient to wait for the 1st of March and plus I want to just get it started, I don’t think it matters if you don’t start on the first anyway 🙂

Feel free to take the challenge from below and do it yourself, I think it’s worth doing just because the keywords are open to interpretation and it’ll be interesting what others come up with but let me know if you do and such so I can see the photo’s!

5 Songs I Am Listening To At The Moment…

So if you are like me and love music then you’ll have your summer playlist all sorted already! Music is an industry which is constantly changing and growing, I listen to a lot of different types of music and from different decades as well so this summer my list is a little bit of everything! 🙂

  1. Imagine Dragons – Radioactive.
    There is something I love about this song and I think it is the main chorus as it is catchy and quite powerful, it is one of those songs that make you feel a little bit more alive and powerful.
  2. Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros – Home.
    I love this song, it is such a happy feel good song and quite romantic too which is why I love it as well. If I am feeling down this is the first song I probably put on my iPod to listen to and I instantly feel a little better. It is also a song that is linked to me and my partner which is also nice 🙂
  3. Foster The People – Pumped Up Kicks.
    This song is quite different but that’s good because even still it is really catchy which is why I love listening to it. I also adore the chorus as well!
  4. The XX – Angels.
    I adore this song, I love everything about it. The rhythm is slow yet so soft and the lyrics are really quite sweet and meaningful. Always puts me in a good mood 🙂
  5. Muse – Animals.
    I have liked a lot of different Muse songs and I liked there latest album but this is the song I enjoy the most at the moment by them 🙂

If you haven’t heard any of these songs then why not try and have a listen! You may just hear your next favourite song 🙂

My Favourite Summer/Autumn Trends

So this year there is set to be some really intriguing and adventurous trends to walk the catwalk and pave a pathway into our hearts. With this in mind I have seen some key trends already within magazines such as Vogue and ELLE and I thought that I would mention my favourite picks from this years Summer and Autumn’s trends to come since there are some real fantastic pieces! 🙂

Bare: Nude and bare colours are a big trend this Summer and Autumn, these light hue’s are a perfect season colour for any piece of clothing or accessory especially shoes such as heels and flat pumps and this is because they make your legs look longer, something which many women wish for! So if that sounds like you then grab yourself a pair of nude heels and watch the compliments flow in.

Oriental Infusion: Recently on the catwalk there has been an influx of oriental infused designs and trends sweeping through the fashion world, from china patterns to delicate embroidery and origami cuts, this overall trend is so elegant and colourful it makes a definite favourite for Summer and Autumn.

1920’s: Gatsby has been more than a cinema hit, it has been a worldwide global phenomenon passing the 1920’s style around and capturing the hearts of many. Que the mass of 1920’s flapper dresses, glitzy accessories and an influx of pearls and embroidery!

Geometric: Geometric shapes and cuts are a big trend this year in Summer and Autumn, colourful and bold they make a strong confident statement in pieces of our favourite clothing. Plus they give great shape to all your assets in the best places!

Leather: Leather has been a big trend for a long while now, capturing our attention a couple of months back and still managing to contain our attention leather has been a contagious fashion trend. Leggings, tops and dresses all are some of our favourite pieces which come in leather and one of the best things about the material? It’s figure hugging which means it accentuates your curves and other assets.

Hope you enjoyed! 🙂

I Love This Floral Headband!

So I love the whole floral headband trend and I have been searching endlessly for one for ages now, I have searched long and hard in so many shops to prevail with nothing. If a retailer did have one then it wasn’t a pretty one but the majority of places I looked including online were either far too expensive or sold out! But today I went into Claire’s and I doubted myself before I went in that there wouldn’t be any but I was surprised to find a nice little collection of floral headbands by the doorway! – Surprise.

I found a really cute one that goes with my hair colour and also compliments my face nor is it to big or in your face which is great, this is the floral headband I had been waiting for! My Summer piece, so here are some pictures below of me wearing my new little accessory and I love love love it!

Make Up Academy Nail Varnish In Plum Noir Mini Review

My sister gave me this nail polish a while back and at first I was skeptical because I am not a big fan of dark colours, so I left trying it on for a while however yesterday I painted my nails in this shade. Regretfully some of my nails chipped and broke after I had been growing them for so long so it resulted in me filing them down! 😦 So in the photo they look a little short apologies in advance! But anyway I was pleasantly pleased with this nail polish, it only required two coats for maximum shine and colour which is great because I hate nail polishes where I have to apply like 10 coats just to achieve my half desired look…

Adding to the wonderful features of this little pot is the fact it dries quickly! I don’t usually trust nail varnishes that do not state they dry quickly because I presume they’ll take forever, but even though this one doesn’t state it dries quickly it actually does! Miracle! 🙂 The brush makes easy application as well and it’s a handy hand bag size for when you need it in emergencies.

Overall this was an excellent cute nail varnish that surprised me to say the least and it will give you nails that look like they’ve just been freshly picked off the plum tree 😀 well worth a shot! 🙂
