30 Days - Day 7 A Photo That Makes You Happy

I have many pictures which make me happy but there was one that stood out for me when thinking about this post and that is my first picture with the boyfriend :) which all of you probably think is boring but we have a different relationship..

Me and my boyfriend met when I was 12 and he was 13 (I think) over the internet in a chat room, we always said that we were going to meet but never actually thought we would but when I was 16 and he was 17 we met in person and it was by far the best day of my life :) when ever we see each other now its a 4 hour train journey and £45. This is a pain but its something we knew when we started our relationship and although its hard I honestly couldn't imagine being with anyone else :) 

anywayyyy now you've heard the story here's the picture..

This is a more recent one that was taken on a trip to London where we saw Arctic Monkeys at the Royal Albert Hall :)

30 Days - Day 6 Whatever Tickles Your Fancy

It was my last day at school yesterday so I have decided to share some photos and stuff with you all :)

It feels very strange to have left my school as i've been there for 7! years now (its a sixth form college as well), next up for me is university which im very nervous about as i'll know nobody and i'll be living in the halls of residence as well..

Anywayyy yesterday we had a leavers assembly in the sixth form common room which lasted for about 2 hours but it was interrupted by 4! fire alarms set off by us once and the rest of the school the other times (it was the year 11's last day too) it was rather eventful full of people falling asleep drunk others running out to be sick cause they were drunk and a few people crying (ha) we then all went to the pub to have a farewell drink which turned into quite a few drinks :)

Here are a few pictures from the day..

Me and my two best friends :) (excuse the hair and makeup)

Me and a good friend :)

Me and some friends :) (can you tell im only 5ft? ha)

Me and some good friends :)

Most people from my school also got these hoodies which have our names or whatever else we wanted at the bottom and then in the 10 is the whole years names (twice), this will be a nice keep sake :)

30 Days - Day 5 Your Favourite Quote

I don't have a favourite quote thats like inspirational or anything like a lot of other people who have done the 30 days do so I just thought of one that I think is funny from Mean Girls the movie and its..

'boo you whore'

Always makes me laugh and although I wouldn't say it to somebody I don't mind hearing it in a movie :)

27 May 2010


With Flash

Natural Light

I love this colour :) although it doesn't seem to last very long on my nails before chipping even with a base and top coat. The applicator is rather awkward to use as well as it moves but I don't mind that much because I like the colour a lot and it also only cost me like £1.50 because I used the £5 off voucher in Boots a while ago :)

30 Days - Day 4 Your Favourite Book

To keep up with tradition I don't have a favourite but i'll show you some of my favourites..

- Stephenie Meyer - Twilight! :) all 4 of the books, my favourite of the 4 is Breaking Dawn because everything you want to happen happens :) these are definately worth reading and I will be purchasing the new one in 8 days! im very excited :) ha
- Lisa Jewell - 31 Dream Street, I love this book it is such a great love story that I like because It doesn't rush into the couple getting together straight away its more of a gradual thing :)
- Freya North - Pillow Talk, I got this free in cosmo last year and its great :)
- I also like Lauren Conrad's books and all of Katie Price's novels apart from Angel Uncovered as it ruins Angel

At the moment I am reading Maureen Lee - Nothing Lasts Forever, which I can see is going to become one of my favourites as well :)

What are your favourite books? Anything to recommend?

30 Days - Day 3 Your Favourite TV Programme

Once again I don't have a favourite but I have lots that I enjoy watching when they're on and not taking a 6 month break..

- Desperate Housewives - truely one of the the best and funniest programmes i've ever watched, the women on this programme are just mad and always getting themselves into trouble
- Brothers & Sisters - love love love this family
- 90210 - great programme to watch not as good as the two above but still enjoyable to watch
- Bones - david boreanaz <3
- House - has one of the best story lines and always makes me laugh
- True Blood - definately not for children.. this would probably be my fave if I had to choose one
- Gossip Girl - totally addicted to this at the moment, started watching it last weekend and im already up to season 3..

Thats probably all of them although I could probably think of at least another 10 to put on this list but I shall refrain from putting you all through that :) what are your favourite TV programmes? anything to recommend?

30 Days - Day 2 Your Favourite Movie

I have lots of favourite movies so i'll name them all for you;

- Forest Gump - possibly the best movie ever made, its so good and always makes me cry but always puts me in an amazing mood :)
- The Notebook - such a happy but sad film, always makes me cry loads at the end :( but still one of my faves
- The Grudge - yes I do like scary films and this is one of the scariest I have ever seen, its so scary I don't think that I can watch it again although I have seen it several times..
- Twilight - yes I am a twilight fan, I like both of the films and will most likely like the next two as well :) (prefer the books though, the films miss too much out)

there probably my 4 favourite ones but I do like a lot of other films :)

24 May 2010


As it has been nice weather I have been wearing this eyeshadow combination for the past 3 days as I didn't want anything that looked too heavy. I have found that what the colours look like on my eyes in real life don't show up so well on my camera, im not sure why because there is plenty of light so I think it must just be the camera :(

Products used;
- All eyeshadows are from the FCUK pallet that I have
- Avon Lengths mascara
- Avon eyeliner on bottom water line

Inner corner

All over lid

Outer corner/Crease/Underneath

30 Days - Day 1 Your Favourite Song

I don't necessarily have a favourite song it's generally any song that Coldplay have written as they are by far my favourite band :) Im waiting for when they next tour so that my boyfriend can get us tickets so I can go see them :)

My favourite song if I had to choose one would most likely be Coldplay - Fix You

I also do love Arctic Monkeys - 505 who I have seen twice as their the boyfriends favourite band

I like a lot of other music as well and usually have a new favourite every month thats in the charts but I seem to have gone off music lately so I don't have a recent favourite :(

Look forward to day 2 tomorrow :)

Haul (yes another one)

So i've got a party tomorrow and some friends wanted to get something new to wear, as I have no money I couldn't although I would of liked to :( but I did have some money left over from the other day in the form of £3 so I wasn't sure what I would get but I wanted to get something..

Natural Collection Strawberry Body Spray £1.99 Boots

Nivea Deodrant £1 Superdrug

What bargains :) I was looking for a body spray and this one is amazing, it smells of really sweet strawberrys which I love, Boots also do other smells which also smell great :) The deodrant was on offer which is why it was cheap. All in all im very happy with my purchases :)

There will be an outfit of the day this weekend for what I wore for the party im going to :)

L'Oreal Hot Straight Review

This is a product that I have used for at least 4/5 years now and it is the one that I will probably use for much longer. It is a heat protectant which you apply on using your hands through the mid - ends of the hair, I always make sure I apply more to the ends than anything else though as my ends are the worst part of my hair. This product leaves my hair silky soft without making it feel heavy and greasy which most heat protectants I have tried leave my hair feeling probably because its so thin.

- Leave's hair soft (I always get compliments on how soft my hair is)
- Avoids feeling heavy and greasy
- Protects so that you don't ruin your hair quite as much when straightening
- Its cheap and does the job so you don't need to spend more money when you don't need to
- Last a long time (at least 4 months using an almond size amount every other day on mid length hair)

- Does leave excess in your hands so you will need to wash them after use
- You may want another heat protectant that is a spray to use the second day (I only wash my hair every 2 days) as this isn't the sort of product you would apply the next day, I personally don't but its up to you :)

I highly recommend that all of you buy this if you use heat appliances on a daily basis :)

10 May 2010

Haul :)

So the boyf is on the ps3 with my sister so I thought I would take the chance to show you the few bits I bought in town today :)

First up I popped into Boots which is definately a shop I couldn't live without...

Barry M nail paint in Turquoise £2.95

Barry M nail paint in Grey £2.95 which I applied as soon as I got in :) (sorry about messyness this was before I cleaned them up)

As I spent over £5 I got given a £5 off No7 so I decided to get the Eyeshadow Brush which is oh so soft. It reminds me of the Mac 217 Blending Brush although this only cost me £1 :)

I then wanted a small purse which could fit into a going out bag for the evening and I found this on a random market stall in the centre which I thought was rather cute and it was only £2! what a bargain :)

We then wandered around where I got some other unrelated things which includes 2 cards and some passport pictures for my provisional, which arent very good :( but oh well I ran out of chances to retake! :(

08 May 2010

Im still here :)

Sorry for lack of posting recently, school is crazy got all my final exams coming up for my A levels so been doing lots of revision lately :( which is ever so boring. My boyfriend is visiting atm (long distance relationship) so I won't be doing another post for about a week until he's gone cause its our 2 year anniversary :)

We will hopefully be going to town this week so will do a mini haul as I don't have much money so all im going to get is some barry m nailvarnishes as everybody has been raving about them and there so much cheaper! Also got to get some lovely passport pictures for my provisional as I need some ID not to learn to drive cause its so expensive to insure a car now and definately won't be able to afford it when I hopefully go to uni :)

I have just bought the Advance Techniques Dry Ends Serum from Avon for £2.40 (half price) I used it once last night and already my split ends don't look as bad which I was amazed by because I have the worst split ends atm. I will do a full review once I have used this for a couple more weeks to tell you whether its amazing or ok cause it can't be terrible for that price :)

I would like to know from you lovely people any products you would recommend for dry/damaged hair that has helped make your hair stronger :)
