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 🙂
I have a double jointed thumb. I happen to think it’s pretty cool, I always used this to my advantage playing thumb wars!
In less than a years time I will be graduating!
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!
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!)
Sometimes I get overly worried and panicky.
Sometimes I am confident in myself, others times not so much.
I love Lasagna and cheese more than I should.
I have irrational fear of seals, killer whales and crocodiles.
I love sharks, they’re my fav!
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! 🙂
So it’s finally March and soon I am hoping the better weather will follow as well, the kind of days when it’s sunny and you can smell the flowers and it just feels like a great day! Also I am currently in the process of sorting out a giveaway for when I reach 100 followers on Bloglovin – so stick around because I’m gathering some super bits for you all! 🙂
Anyway so I thought I would review a few of my favourite perfumes at the moment and let you all know a little about them & why they’re currently my favourites! So to start with I have…
Victoria’s Secret Bombshell Body Mist – 250ml
So I never really admired any Victoria Secret merchandise until I actually ventured into their store in Sheffield and I loved everything! Their perfumes were just divine, but I actually brought a body mist (Not perfume I know! But deserved a review) and I thought that instead of paying a lot of money for a perfume I was unsure about I would try the body mist first and I am so so happy with this purchase, it was rather expensive I think it was like £22 which for me is expensive just for body mist but it is so beautiful that I didn’t mind! It smells so sweet but not overpowering and it lasts for a long time which is excellent, I brought mine in January and it’s still practically full! 🙂
Vera Wang Lovestruck Floral Rush Eau de Parfum Spray– 30ml
I got this as a present from my parents for my birthday and it smells lovely, it’s floral and light and is definitely a great buy! I never have tried or brought any of Vera Wang perfumes before and this has set the standards high for future perfumes!
Herve Leger Femme – 50ml I noticed this perfume online and also in the Avon catalogue for those of you from Britain, I got this and I had low expectations for it at first because it was never a brand I’ve ever heard of however I had heard good things about it however I was still skeptical. But it was and still is (I say ‘is’ because I have two bottles still!) a really beautiful smelling perfume, it’s fresh and floral but also smells different from other perfumes I have smelt because it has distinctive notes in the smell – It’s not to fruity or girly but the right amount to be sophisticated and fresh.
I am running behind again on posting my daily challenge! So far the hardest thing has been trying to post on time! (hehe) but yesterday (27th) was my favourite colour and I took a little picture that I found really beautiful to show my favourite colour and I think it really is quite a simple yet beautiful photo and I hope you’ll all like it as well! 🙂
So (Drum roll please!…) my favourite colour is……. GREEN!
Hey everyone! Sorry I didn’t get a chance to upload my first picture of my photo challenge yesterday it’s because it was my nieces birthday! So I spent yesterday on the train and celebrating with my whole family 🙂
But this is my day 1 photo for nature and I took it Friday evening, I thought it would make a good nature shot for my challenge because the tree looks so gigantic and quite symbolic in the growing darkness of the night and also it shows that even if you live in a big city you can still find nature if you look around enough so I thought it was a nice photo.
My day 2 photo for today is FOOD and will be uploaded tonight! 🙂
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!
I’ll be posting my first picture tomorrow! NATURE 🙂
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 🙂
So if you’ve read my previous post about 15 random things on my bucket list I want to do then this is like a little part 2 if you will, this is 5 random things I have already completed on my bucket list already! Enjoy 🙂
Hold an owl – Bit of a random one I’ll admit but I got to hold an owl and although I was a little wary it was ADORABLE! They were rescue owls so he had previously had a bad life but he was called sunny and he loved cuddles! (Photo Below)
Go to Japan – So in April 2011 we went to Japan to visit my brother for a week, since this was one of the countries on my long list of places to travel I got to tick that off!
See a shooting star – Okay so this was a one in a million chance and happened at random but it was a magical experience I wont forget, it happened back home near London when I was at a bus stop seeing my partner home when we both looked up and saw a shooting star! Sounds like something out of a movie which is why I love it! 🙂
Get a significant tattoo – So in June 2012 I decided I was going to get a significant tattoo and it would be my first tattoo as well so this was special too for me at least.
Learn finger sign language – This is something I am quite proud of that whilst I have been at University I have taught myself finger sign language, which I think is always useful.
That’s a small snippet of 5 random things I have completed already on my bucket list – Hope you enjoyed! 🙂
A while ago (roughly 2 years ago) I started writing a bucket list of things I want to do, being ambitious and someone who loves new things and adventures my list has some pretty crazy things on it, but also some very cool easy going things that I wanted to do and try as well! My list is phenomenally long going into the hundreds so I thought I’d share 15 random things that are on it! 🙂
Swim with sharks – I genuinely really want to do this more than anything, I love sharks they’re my favourite animal and I know an incredible useless amount of knowledge on them as well but I think they’re great because they’re fierce and beautiful at the same time. I think to start with I want to swim with sharks in an aquarium as I’m quite scared of the sea, but if I get over that fear then I’d like to swim with some different types of shark in the ocean as well, maybe Black tip reef sharks and whale sharks 🙂
Ride on an Elephant – I would love to ride on an Elephant, they’re so big and quite cute and I’d love to have a photo taken with one!
Go Skydiving – It would be undeniably scary but that’s part of the thrill I guess, plus you’d see some killer views on the way down which would be something unforgettable!
See Northern Lights – I know lots of people who want to do this as well, I think this would be amazing and a beautiful experience which I’d treasure.
Make 1000 Origami Cranes – There is a Japanese legend that whoever makes 1000 origami cranes will be granted a wish, this is something I’d love to do as I learnt how to make origami cranes really well, its just it would take a crazy amount of time!
Experience Holi or a colour festival – Holi is a festival celebrated mainly in India or Nepal and a colour festival is celebrated in South Africa Durban, I’d love to go to one of these events the powders looks so colourful and bright I think it would be amazing.
Go to a fashion show – I’d love to go to a big worldwide fashion show in one of the major cities this would be amazing to see the catwalks and designers as well as the upcoming latest styles.
Hold a bird of prey – Not many people wish to hold a bird of prey but I’m a little different, I love animals and I love to admire their beauty and birds of prey like Eagles are much like sharks in the sense that they are fierce but also beautiful.
Swim with Manta rays – I think manta rays are really incredible, I love how smooth and calm they are and I think it would be an unforgettable experience to swim with them.
Travel everywhere on my travel list – This is a big one that wont be completed for a long time, but will eventually be completed because I love travelling and aim to finish my list 🙂
Well that’s ten random things from my bucket list! Hope you enjoyed!
Today I had my hospital appointment at 9am so I was awake really early (Something that I was only really used to back at home- now I’m just lazy), I didn’t get much sleep either so being tired made me feel horrid! Because I was up early it meant that I started my day early as well which was nice because today was warm and spring like 🙂 (Pictures at the bottom!)
After the hospital we walked all the way home which is like a 30 minute walk and then we decided that we would go on a little country walk since the weather was really nice and we had found a walking route. We started our adventure promptly, walking towards the opening of the forest walkway it looked something similar to a horror movie even despite the blissful sun, but we carried on because we were aiming to get to a beautiful viewing spot where you can see the whole city skyline! We walked for a good 20 minutes up hill through the countryside farms until we reached a field of horses which is where I saw my first baby foal in real life – It was uber cute! Being pretty tired we stopped to take photos and admire the horses when they suddenly decided to go on a rampage and get all protective so we left quite quickly because I got scared one might jump over the fence! (I’m a big chicken)
Sometime after this we finally reached the peak of the hill and we got a beautiful view of the Leeds city skyline which is really something 🙂 My partner made a joke about the lack of skyscrapers in Leeds and it went something like this ‘There’s hardly any skyscrapers, if spider man was swinging through the city he wouldn’t get anywhere’ which made me laugh :’)
We took lots of photos and made our way back home, we were both relieved to be able to rest and I had a good 6 hour nap to replenish my tired self 🙂 Sadly I’m back at uni tomorrow for lectures/seminars but what can you do… 😦 Nearly home for Summer though just got a few more weeks to go and then I’ll be blogging about my summer at home in North London which should be exciting and different! 😀
I hope you all had a nice day, follow follow follow 🙂 See you tomorrow!
