Motivational Quote #5

Hello everyone!! I thought this quote was appropriate because lately I have been rather lazy, not just with blogging but with everything. I have so much things that I need to do and I just have to get up and do them. Last night I sat for a while and looked for some inspiration for blog posts so all I need to do is type them up & then post them. I've also been slacking on going to the gym lately so I'm aiming to go nearly everyday this week and get back into my fitness routine. I go to NYC in like 60 days or something so I'm hoping by then I'll be a little fitter and a little help with quotes like this I will be.

I hope I gave you some motivation for things you have been putting off & I hope you enjoyed reading.

Sunday; Beauty Scenario Tag

Hello everyone!! I recently saw Eden from beautybyeden do the Beauty Scenario Tag and decided to do it aswell so here is my answers :

1. You have to get rid of all your foundations and you can only keep one high end and one drugstore, which do you keep?
I would keep Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer and Rimmel match perfection

2. You go for an interview and the lady interviewing you has lipstick on her teeth. Do you approach the subject or ignore it completely?
I would probably leave it, I hate telling people things like that.

3. You're not feeling yourself and need a pick me up. Which lipstick do you put on to make yourself feel beautiful?
Mac Cockney. Its just so pretty!!

4. You go back in time for a day to your teenage years, how would you do your hair and makeup differently?
I'm still in my teenage years and when I was younger I never really wore makeup. I would probably wear my hair down a lot more because I always wore it in a ponytail.

5. You ask your hairdresser for a shoulder length Pixie Lott hair cut, but they hear wrong and give you a pixi cut. Do you a) Smile, say thank you, leave and call your mum hysterical b) Cry in the chair and things get awkward or c) Complain to the manager and demand a refund.
I'm the type of person that would definitely complain and demand a refund. 

6. Your friend surprises you with a 4 day city break and you have 1 hour to pack. Which 'do it all' palette do you pack in your makeup 
I would probably pack my Urban Decay naked basics palette. Its got all the colours I need and its pretty small so thats a plus side. 

7. Your house has been robbed, don't worry- everyone is safe, but your beauty stash has been raided. What's the product you really hope is safe?
My Mac Cockney lipstick

8. Your friend borrows your makeup and returns it in awful condition. Do you a) Just pretend you haven't noticed b) Ask them to repurchase it or c) Secretly do the same to something of theirs

This is a tough one because its a friend so I probably would just pretend I hadn't noticed 

Thanks for reading and I tag everyone to do this!!

Yankee Candle Mini Haul

Hello everyone!!

The other day I decided I wanted some new candles as I'm getting rather tired of my Christmas scents because I still haven't used them all up. I got three mini yankee candles and they all smell super good. The first two smell really fresh and are great for spring whereas November Rain is a autumn scent but I love it a lot.

Waikiki MelonAloha! Wake up to the sunny, sweet glow of exotic, juicy melons with a touch of sweet orange oil.

Vanilla LimeSmooth and refreshing … the creamy richness of vanilla with sweet cane sugar and a zesty lime twist.

November RainA quiet interlude of the season is reflected in this airy, refreshing mix of watery leaf notes, warm amber and crisp, brisk air.

Thank you for reading!!

What is your favourite scent of candle?

Spring Beauty Tag

Hello everyone!!

The lovely Zoe from beautypie created the Spring Beauty Tag and as Spring is nearly here I thought I would do it. I wasn't tagged but I decided to do it anyway. 

1. Do you change up your makeup when Spring arrives? If so, how?
I normally change to a lighter coverage foundation or use a BB cream or just concealer. I wear more coral shades of lipstick.

2. What's your favourite Spring fragrance?
I don't really change my perfume throughout the year.I just use my favourite Darling by Kylie Minogue.

3. What's going to be your favourite accessory this Spring?
Thin florally scarfs are probably what I'll be wearing this Spring

4. What's going to be your most worn item of clothing this Spring?
I'll be changing from my duffle coat to a lighter coat I think so I'll need to buy a nice one soon.

5. What are your Top 3 favourite Spring nail polishes?
It would have to be Models Own - Lilac Dream, Essie - Mint Candy Apple & Essie - Sweet Talker. 

6. Do you prefer pumps or sandals in Spring?
Pumps, its not warmer enough for sandals yet!!

7. What's your favourite Spring jacket?
Normally I just wear a jacket I got from New Look about 2 years ago as its nice and light but its a bit worn now so I'll have to buy a new one soon.

I don't really tag anyone specifically so if you want to do it I TAG you!!

Thanks for reading and I hope you do it as well

Hello everyone!! 

I'm rather sorry I haven't been around for the last few weeks but my prelims have finished so I'll hopefully be blogging a lot more often now. I've seen this tag floating around on YouTube and around the blogging world for a while now and decided to finally do it.

1: What are you wearing? 
1975 t-shirt from their tour, pyjama shorts & some penguin socks - lazy Sunday outfit

2: Ever been in love? 
Probably at one point in my life yes

3: Ever had a terrible breakup? 
not really no

I think I'm around 5ft 7-8. I'm quite tall

10: Favourite bands? 
I have lots of favourite bands mainly Owl City, the 1975, Arctic Monkeys, Oasis, the Stone Roses, Nickelback & Bastille are just to name a few. I'm also a huge country fan so I love a lot of country singers but since the question asked for just bands I'll leave it at that because I could probably be here all day.

11: Something you miss? 
If I'm honest I don't really miss anything at the moment apart from being stress free.

12: Favourite song?
Coat of Many Colours by Dolly Parton. I love Dolly Parton and this song just reminds me of the stories my mum used to tell me about her childhood.

17 :) I'm 18 in July

17: Favourite actor? 
I love Helena Bonham Carter & Johnny Depp are my favourites.

It depends on my mood but I like a mixture of both

Normally just my room 

21: How long does it take you to shower? 
About 10-15 minutes sometimes it can take about 20 minutes

22: How long does it take you to get ready in the morning? 
If its a weekday I can get ready in about 5 minutes if I don't have to straighten my hair, if I do it will take me about 10 minutes. If its the weekend it will take me about 15 minutes because I have a lot more time.

23: Ever been in a physical fight?
I guess so but only with my sister. Over the years we have had some brutal fights.

24: Turn on?
I love someone who can make me laugh as I said before and also if they have a nice smile. I also have a thing for nice hands and necks.

25: Turn off? 
People that are so full of themselves and if they smoke that's a huge turn off.

26: The reason I started blogging? 
I wanted somewhere I could go just to write about anything really.

27: Fears? 
actually don't have any fears although I think Michael Jackson is/was a pretty scary man and I think I may be terrified of him because some of the pictures of him are rather traumatising
