So, it's been a while! I've been VERY busily living life and unfortunately blogging took a back seat. 

I have been wanting to show you all little snippets from my room for a while now - but I haven't always been here and its been,, quite frankly a mess since this morning when I finally finished sorting it out. - I am now VV HAPPY with how it looks and everything in it. 

Sooo... without further ado lets get started!! 

I love my bed - the bear was a valentines present from my boyfriend.

Liebster Award... Pt. 2

So my second nomination came from Lisa so thank you very much! 

I'm just going to get cracking with the questions Lisa asked...

1. What inspired you to start writing your blog?
I started writing my blog because I was bored and wanted a hobby if I'm honest. I just wanted something to do when having a lazy day and just thought I would enjoy creating it and writing the content... which I love! 

2. If you could only read one book for the rest of your life, what would it be? 
I am not a very big reader I don't really read at all now...I used to when I was younger - but slowly fizzled out as I got older. However I would probably read 'Zoella - Girl Online'.

3. What is your favourite Disney film?
Beauty and the Beast -The new one if it counts! lllllooooveeeee it so much could watch it on repeat forever if I had to. 

4. Which of your blog posts are you most proud of?
Probably my 'Why I Cancelled My Birchbox' because I feel that was my most successful post to date and it wasn't just me posting pretty pictures it was kinda meaning full and could help others out in their quest to finding the perfect monthly subscription beauty box. 

5. Who is your favourite film/TV/ show character and why?
Urm thats a tricky one for me... I'm not a big film or tv watcher. The only programme I really watch is made in Chelsea and my fav character/person on there is Binky - don't know why - I just really like her and the way she is and what she does and I mean her and JP now have a beautiful daughter. 

6. If you could spend the day with three celebrities, who would they be?
I don't like the word celebrity - If I'm honest I would love to spend the day with Zoe Sugg (Zoella), Alfie Deyes (pointlessblog) and probably Tanya Burr just because they do what I aspire to do I just think it would be so interesting talking to them and vibe-ing off them - basically their lifestyles and jobs are the goals and I really hope I can achieve what they have in my future. 

7. What is your favourite thing about blogging?
Reading any comments I get - I love interacting with the people who read my content. 

8. Do you prefer to be in front of the camera or behind it?
definitely behind it still at the moment - I don't feel confident enough at the moment to start a youtube /vlogging channel quite yet. 

9. What is your favourite animal?
Guinea Pig - BY FAAAAR... they are just so so so cute!!

10. What was your dream job when you were a child?
Interior Designer

11. What is one thing you have learned since you started blogging?
I feel I am a better writer - I always struggle a little with English and writing at school, but I feel starting this blog has made me into my own writer and I kinda love that! 

So that's it... thanks for those questions Lisa - they were brill! 

I nominate:

I've been nominated for the Liebster Award... TWICE!

So... to be nominated once was amazing.. but then to receive another nomination I was like..do I deserve this. 
So I have decided to do two separate posts as combining them I feel might be too long...

So, without further ado, lets get cracking with the first one!

Thank you for nominating me Sofia

So I saw Kong last night... heard good things - thought it was okay.. so yeah bit overrated. Series wise probably something like Game of Thrones... Im not really into watching many series tbh.

I'ma little unsure of what this question is asking... but an unpopular opinion someone might have would be to be racist or agest.. etc

Why I cancelled my Birchbox after just 2 months

So... a couple of months ago I decided I wanted to trail a beauty box subscription. After having a little look into my possibilities I chose Birchbox. I only did the 1 month payment as I only wanted to trial it out.

My first box 'April Box' came very quickly and I wasn't disappointed - I just felt the product sizes were a little small and some of the products I would probably never usually use. --but that is not necessarily a bad thing.

My Views on the Clinique Anti-Blemish Range

So a couple of weeks ago I went to a LARGE town near where I live to wander round all the beauty counters in the department store.
My aim was to look for a good beauty regime and a new foundation...
I chose Clinique because it had a range called 'anti-blemish solutions' that sounded like it would be perfect for my skin. The lady did a little demo for me and showed me all the products etc - It seemed like it would be right for my skin, so I bought the range and a little spot blemish solution thing to go with it. 

After using it for a few days I noticed my skin was drying out really quite quickly and I didn't seem to be able to put moisture back into my skin even though I was using the Clinique moisture bomb moisturiser.

Summer Hair and Glittery Nails...

A little beauty post...

On Saturday the 15th April I spent a few hours sat in the hairdressers... YAY! I was getting my hair dyed as I am wanting to go lighter for the summer... So I have had caramel and a pastely blonde colour put through my hair to make the ends much lighter. You could say I have had it Balayaged -- kinda -- but I didn't have it backcombed as that would mean my hair would literally have to all be cut off because it's knotty as it is!

Yay! spring is finally in the air! -- this makes me vvvery happy! 

Spring is my favourite season of all,, mainly because my birthday falls in spring, but also there are lots of pretty flowers and (sometimes) nice, warm sunny days with bright blue skies!
