So I noticed that Mr.Nutcase were looking for bloggers to review their phone cases and I had to step up because 1.I love reviews & 2. I love my phone so it seemed like a good idea, after emailing I received a friendly reply with a code for me to create my own personal phone case to review for all my lovely followers! The website is easy to use and colourful with a nice little squirrel adorning the front page, you can choose various phone case types to tailor to your taste and an array of different layouts for the chosen picture(s) you want to put on the case.
So this was mine!
On my case I decided to have some snapshots of my partner, parents and nieces & nephews – I have a large family so I had to narrow it down but I really loved the quality of the case, it’s sturdy and protective and the colour and quality of it is impeccable.

A big thank you to Mr.Nutcase for a wonderful experience and lovely product!
Okay so I thought that this would be a good post to do because it is nearly the start of Autumn, It may sound silly but I had to Google when the actual start date of Autumn was and it said the 22nd September! I love Autumn personally, I adore the crispy brown and orange leaves on the floor, Halloween! (I still dress up), the rainy days and nights and the smell of cinnamon (My Favourite!) so with that in mind here is my Autumn wish list:
Ankle wellies with the cute little bows on the side (It rains here endlessly).
Another winter coat (The North is cold!).
Michael Kors watch (One day hopefully!)
Nina Ricci body wash (Mine has run out, boo 😦 )
GTA 5, Batman Arkham Origins, Assassins Creed Blag Flag and some other games I wanted.
illamasqua rich liquid foundation
It is only a tiny list because I can never actually remember things I want until I see it again in the shops haha but I am very much looking forward to Autumn, I have always said that my favourite season is Winter but I love Autumn as well so lets hope it is good this year 🙂
Okay so I thought I would do ten little things I may not have mentioned before about me and I hope this helps you to feel like you know me better 🙂 Enjoy!
I used to be Hello Kitty crazy – Quite literally not long ago everything I had was Hello Kitty, some may see it as babyish but quite a few people saw it as cute and I liked it so went with it. Now I am older I sort of fell out of love with the idea of Hello Kitty now I just buy my nieces pieces of clothing and things with it on instead of myself!
I am not a big fan of the sun – This sounds weird, but sometimes I do not like the sun at all and would prefer if it rained or snowed. Although I am partial to some sunbathing when it is sunny outside!
I was to scared to read the Goosebumps books – FACT. The front covers scared me and I never read them at all and probably wont ever.
I am rather tall – Around about 5’8 – 5’9 something which I love and hate at the same time.
I always used swap career aspirations – Until now I have always swapped career aspirations, you name it I wanted to be it once. Nurse, army soldier, firefighter, baker, lawyer, teacher… the list goes on but I think that partly is because when you’re growing up you do not know what you want to be therefore you imagine most jobs in a blissful and spectacular way when in reality there are advantages and disadvantages in every occupation. Now I am set on being a fashion journalist/editor and I am working towards that!
I have a double jointed thumb – It sounds gross when you say it, but if you Google it or whatever all it means is my thumb can move back further than usual, hard to explain I am sure there are some YouTube videos you can watch that would explain it better visually 🙂
I love pets – I used to have to 2 Russian Dwarf hamsters, a goldfish named Jaws that came from the circus and a German Shepard dog 🙂
I used to be a tomboy – I cringe every time I think back to how I dressed and looked.
This time last year I was worrying about… – Getting into University and getting a job!
In A level we studied Frankenstein and Dracula, out of the two Franky was by far the best book and I learnt Dracula was just a book about sexually frustrated people according to my teacher.
As you all know I love blogging and writing articles and I am aiming to become a fashion journalist in the future, well I have an update on my journey I have now become a Social media and blogging intern for a upcoming fashion based London magazine and website! I got the email yesterday and accepted of course and now I look after multiple platforms of social media and things for this website and magazine by updating and posting pictures from designers or sources and other bits and bobs!
At the moment it seems a little hectic as I have a lot of essays due and an exam in two weeks as well as keeping up and writing for some of the other magazines I write for but I couldn’t turn this down. I am hoping it’ll ease up a bit soon but it seems fun 🙂
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! 🙂
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 🙂 (Photo found on WeHeartIt)
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. (Photo found on WeHeartIt)
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! (Photo from WeHeartIt via Google)
Some colourful nail varnish – I have mountains of nail polish but I really want some new vibrant bright colours which ooze Summer! (Photo from WeHeartIt)
Well hope you all enjoyed 4 little things I really desire for Summer 🙂
So I thinking about the traditional generic British stereotypes that many people think of when thinking of Britain, I found this quite funny because most of the time I don’t do any of these things that most people associate with British folk which made me laugh 🙂 So I thought I’d Google the most generic British stereotypes and talk about them! Enjoy! 🙂
We all LOVE tea? Okay the truth is I love tea I really do, there is nothing better than a nice cup of tea made just perfectly! 🙂 However this is not true as well because many people hate tea or prefer coffee or hate them both in fact!
We all speak like the Queen? No not at all, there are various dialects all over the Britain such as Geordie, Lancastrian, Scouse, Brummie, Yorkshire but however down the South you do find dialects become more like received pronunciation also known as the Queens English, so no we don’t all sound like the Queen although some people may have a dialect somewhere similar.
We love our fish ‘n’ chips? I don’t account for the whole of Britain but I love fish and chips, well not the fish because I don’t eat fish so I just like the chips 🙂 I guess a lot of people love fish and chips, but we love many other dishes as well.
We are snobby? I think this is a generalization, I know many people who are down to earth and friendly but there are people that are snobby as well but were not all snobs 🙂
We all have yellow teeth? This made me laugh the most, I know lots of people with brilliant white teeth and some with yellowing teeth but not every one has yellow teeth!
We are charming and suave? I think this is very generalized as well, not everyone is charming and suave but you’ll meet people who are and then you’ll meet people who definitely are not too!
We say cheerio and cor blimey? I have never said these things and probably wont ever. Although maybe there are still some people who say these things who knows?
We all love the royal family? Many people do love the royal family in Britain however many don’t as well its a split divide I guess, it depends on who you’re talking to.
It always rains and were always miserable? Yes! It rains a lot! but we get some sunny days too sometimes and were not always miserable! 🙂
Well I think that’s enough for now, hopefully didn’t offend anyone because nothing was meant to be offensive! It was just me shedding some light on British stereotypes in a playful way 🙂
So it is Easter Sunday today and to be honest it’s been a partly sad but relaxing day, I said goodbye to my parents as they headed home towards London while I stay here in Leeds which was pretty emotional especially as this is my first Easter away from home.
A little explanation- the reason I didn’t go home for Easter was because I actually managed to get a job interview (I got the job!) which happened to be in the Easter break plus I had a hectic amount of work to do for when I go back for my final semester of first year. While everyone else was leaving my halls with suitcases packed and getting in cars and on every train,bus or coach I was stuck up in the chilly North with snow. Luckily my partner had to stay as well for his job so at least I wasn’t completely alone, if he wasn’t here either I think I would’ve ran all the way home by now out of loneliness. So this morning my parents left after a really nice weekend showing them around Leeds, I couldn’t have asked for a better weekend to be honest it was lovely seeing them. So this Easter has been nice and lucky me I also won £10 on a lottery ticket – the most I’ve ever won! So I’m going to treat myself to an eyebrow threading appointment, usually I always keep on top of my eyebrows making sure they’re kept tidy but lately being a student without tweezers or money for threading has had bad results on my eyebrows – to which my dad made some pretty funny jokes about over the weekend!
I also think I have sprained my ankle as it kills! 😦 So I’m kind of just hobbling around as well, but I brought some cucumber and used it on my eyes and had a long nap (5 whole hours!) because I really needed some sleep and to rest my ankle. But that’s been my Easter so far, a mixture of good and bad but still great… just want to wish everyone a Happy Easter! 😀 (Below is the cutest picture ever that I found on Google)
