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 person 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!

Day 3 – 5 things I dislike

So in this little post it is day 3 so I will be discussing 5 things that I dislike, I’ll make it short and sweet and to the point! 🙂

1. Liars – What’s the point in lying, you only have to remember all the lies you’ve told and eventually liars always get caught out, plus it’s not healthy.

2. Tuna – Just yuck. It smells, it’s a fish and it looks unappetizing.

3. Bugs in my room at night when I’m trying to sleep cause they might crawl on me 😦

4. Eating healthy and then having a moment of weakness eat lots of rubbish and then feel bad afterwards.

5. When I do my make up and I have to sneeze or itch my eye 😦

So that’s 5 little things I dislike, there’s probably more but that’ll do for now! Tomorrow is day 4 which is what’s in my bag! giphy (1)

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! 🙂

Uni, fashion journalism & blogging!

Hello, Bonjour, Konnichiwa, nǐ hǎo, Guten Tag, Hallo! 

So I have been gone a long time and haven’t posted in a while, however I am back and I am hoping that this summer I will get time to blog quite a bit so fingers crossed! Since I haven’t blogged in a while, I think you all deserve a reasonable explanation and that is because last month I had an incredibly difficult amount of university work due in the same week and it meant a lot of hours staying up till the morning, barely eating and being overly tired 😦 Luckily however now I have finished my university work and my second year at university and I am home for summer!

Before I broke up for summer I was planning on doing quite a lot of things this year and I am still hoping to do them at some point like first aid and learning to drive but something which I have been thinking about more lately is my old dream of becoming a fashion journalist. For those of you who were with me from the beginning, you’ll remember I wanted to be a fashion journalist and I put all my time and effort into juggling my university work and writing for various magazines, in total I wrote over 30 articles published both online and in print format so that was successful for me however eventually it all got a bit much and I couldn’t juggle the two much longer, so I gave up writing for magazines and at this point I was writing for at least 6 or 7 different upcoming or amateur magazines so it was a lot to give up after working so hard on it but it had to be done. After a long long long break of not writing, lately I have been looking into getting back into the fashion world! I want to write articles again, so I went and started writing for some of the ones I use to write for but now I am looking into other areas of fashion as well which might be interesting like photography and styling (I don’t know if I’d be any good but that’s why you learn and try!).

I’m not completely sure which direction I want to go into for my future career but there is three different industries I am thinking about which is fashion, teaching or health care and I have routes planned for all of them – so we will all have to wait and see what next year holds 🙂

Other than that, I’ve been worrying a lot about various things like finances and health, but I am still smiling so that’s good! 🙂

Well I hope you’re all well and I am back now!

Nearly blonde! A cautionary tale of attempting to go blonde…

For a long time I had been trying to decide whether I wanted to be blonde or have pastel pink hair or do all sorts of jazzy stuff with my locks, it is a fact that I can’t leave my hair alone for a long period of time cause I just get bored!

(Warning – It’s rather a long post but it does have some cute gifs!)

So from the top lets begin! I have brown hair (there are probably a billion shades of brown hair and I could try and find my shade but it’ll take to long so let’s just go with brown for now) and I decided on a whim that I wanted my hair to be lighter for summer and I was thinking of pastel pink or maybe trying blonde out. I had spent days and days online reading reviews of bleaching kits, highlighting kits, dyes, toners, you name it I read a post on it! But I finally decided to go to blonde or at least try, so I went and brought the much raved about BLEACH London total bleaching kit and I brought two because apparently the mixture in one box was a small proportion and wouldn’t cover all my hair as other bloggers had stated in the reviews I read so I followed the advice that I’d most likely need two boxes. I had to then make the choice of what shade of blonde I wanted to be and I eventually decided I wanted to be a golden blonde or a little darker than platinum so I also brought the Jerome Russell BBlonde Champagne blonde toner as well!

Image

So onto the main event! I bleached my hair which is one of the most hardest tasks ever even with an extra pair of hands, luckily my partner was on hand to help me out but nevertheless it was a hard task. After bleaching my hair my head was stinging and I had a while to kill while the bleach was doing its thing, after I washed it out I saw that it was gingery blonde so I put in the toner following the instructions and waited for that to do its business too.

Washing out the toner I was super excited to see my lovely blonde hair BUT to my horror it was blonde on top and gingery blonde towards the bottom, it wasn’t a big deal that it was two shades but it was mighty obvious when I stepped outside in the light and it looked ghastly! (It was like platinum white, sunshine yellow + tangerine orange with a bit of browny blonde thrown it – what a lovely mixture right?)

In the end I was thinking of buying more toner to make it one shade but this was becoming a very expensive endeavour and I had been missing my brown hair a lot so I decided to dye my hair brown once again and luckily I had a ‘golden brown’ hair dye at hand at home and chucked that on today and it came out a nice light browny colour which is great! But it has made me realise not to attempt this again and if I do then do it professionally at least, but for those of you wondering about the condition of my hair it is perfectly conditioned and healthy still! 🙂

As for the products I used I’ll add a mini bit in about them as I did want this to be a normal post not a review but the BLEACH London total bleaching kit seems to be over hyped in my opinion, it’s just like any other bleach in the sense that it does smell, it does sting and it does dry out your hair despite the reviews I read where others said it didn’t the only positive really is that it is a little cheaper and the box is quite snazzy however I also got within my BLEACH London kit a conditioning reincarnation hair mask tube which you can buy separate anyway and this is wonderful for your hair if you’ve dyed it – definitely worth purchasing!

On the other hand the Jerome Russell BBlonde Champagne toner did its job to an extent, it did remove brassy tones and gingery yellow bits but not all of it as well as this it is a very darkish blonde so if you’re looking for a light blonde or platinum I wouldn’t recommend this one specifically.

Well anyway that is that and I hope you enjoyed reading this little tale and had a good laugh or it helped you in anyway! 🙂

6 things I wont miss about university this summer

Okay so we are all excited that summer is upon us right? We are all hoping it’s going to be a ‘hot’ summer, but what us lot in England tend to strive for is a little bit of sunshine that lasts at least longer than an hour! We don’t often get amazing weather in England and when we do it’s sun glasses and ice creams all round and it usually only lasts for one day but oh well! So if you’re a student like me you’ll be coming close to ending your first/second or maybe even third year in university and looking so forward to the summer ahead, am I right? On that note, I thought I would do a post on 5 things I wont miss about university this summer when I’m at home! 🙂

  1. Getting up at 9am for a lecture or seminar and being to tired to even open my eyes.

  2. Not having any food in the house and mentally making note of the edible items I wish I had in my fridge or cupboards.

  5. Having to decide between buying toilet roll or chocolate when I only have enough left for one option. (Don’t worry it’ll always be the toilet roll! haha)

  6. Trying to get on an already overcrowded bus to get to uni on time and hoping I won’t be the one the driver leaves behind because the bus is to it’s maximum capacity.
