PROM!

Hey there it’s me again!

So today I wanted to write a wee post about my prom just telling you all a bit about my day like a day in the life prom edition – 1. Cause I think it will be fun for you to read and 2. Cause I will like to have this to look back on! So here goes hope you enjoy!

My prom was on the 11th of June at a fancy hotel in my city.

My day began at about 10am when I got up; I then had breakfast and showered ready for my exciting day!

Then me and my friends exchanged excited texts about the night ahead, I watched some Netflix and YouTube videos until it was time to go get my makeup done!

My appointment was at 3pm at a local beauty salon, I was really nervous at first but I’m so happy with how my makeup turned out I asked for quite a bold gold smoky eye and she did it perfectly! It was Β£28 including the nicest false eyelashes! 😍

image

Then once that was done I got the bus back home – on which I was stared at horribly for having a heavy face of makeup and messy hair and my usual causal clothes on. πŸ˜‚

It was now about 4pm and my sisters and my niece came up to my house to help me get ready. My niece painted my nails a lovely gold colour (gold was my theme sorta thing😜) and then my two sisters curled my hair. (Which was great and lasted all night and I didn’t even have to pay for a hairdresser to do it!)

Then I got dressed – My dress was from Chi Chi London Β£65 , Clutch from New Look Β£12.99, Shoes from Tesco (πŸ˜‚ don’t judge they r nice!) Β£20, Necklace from Tesco Β£8 and a black shawl which I borrowed from my sister.

image

Then we took lots of photos and at quater past six my friends arrived and we headed to prom!(as we were all getting a car to prom together) oh and before I forget we don’t really do the whole prom date thing we all just go with our friends and the very little amount of people who are in relationships go together as well as staying in their friendship groups too. 😊

We got there at about ten to seven, and we were only allowed in at seven, so we took the time to take LOTS of photos and selfies together! πŸ˜‚

image

Once we were finally let in we took even more photos cause the place was done up so nicely with fairy lights, balloons and a red carpet! πŸ˜„ As well as this we all were talking to each other and checking out what everyone else was wearing!

Then it was time for the meal which I was not looking forward to as I’m such a fussy eater! But I have to say I was pleasantly suprised the starter and dessert were amazing and I ate about half of the main as I didn’t really like it but I was glad I at least tried it! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‹

image

After we ate me and my friends went to the photo both thingy and got lots of funny pics done, it was so much fun that we kept coming back to it all night!

Then the rest of the night was spent drinking Pepsi and dancing to some good songs and some really bad “ned anthems” πŸ˜‚ (I think neds are a Scottish thing Idk do you even know what that means?!) We danced that much our feet were actually killing us afterwards!

image

Then a glass got smashed on the dance floor, drunk people were grinding each other on a pillar, more drunk people were doing the snake on the floor in ballgowns and me and my friends (who were some of the only sober ones there) laughed at the drunk, danced for ages and had the best night ever!!!

We said our goodbyes to teachers and fellow students as this would be the last time we ever see most of them! We stayed right until the end which meant we left at 12pm and I got home at about 20 past 12.

I then told my mum and dad all about my night, spent ages taking my makeup off and trying to brush a sh*t tone of hairspray out of my hair! I was then going to go to bed but instead like the idiot I am at 1am I watched four episodes of Gavin and Stacey πŸ˜‚

Which meant I ended up not sleeping until half four πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ whoops

And that was my day!!!

image

I had an absolute blast and couldn’t have asked for a more amazing prom since here in Scotland we only get one prom I’m glad I made it a great one!!!πŸ˜€πŸ˜„ Wish I could do it all again tho 😭

Fashion Fridays –Β Tag

Hey! So sorry for not posting in nearly 4 months!!! I was seriously busy with school as usual (exams and course work 😝) and a death in the family. Today was my last day at school so we went mental πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ PLUS I GOT INTO THE UNI I WANTED! YEAHYYY! So to get back into the swing of things here’s the 15 Fashion Questions Tag!

1. I love to shop for my clothes at? (give three stores)
– Primark, H&M and New Look

2. Store you like to visit but usually don’t buy from?
– River Island or Topshop loke the stuffnin them but they are more expensive and you can get just as nice stuff from the previous shops I mentioned.

3. Last piece you bought?
– A cute sweatshirt from Primark that was Β£5, love it! It says something in french on it lol

4. Do you own something you’ve never worn? What?
– Soooooo many things!!! I’m so bad because I love to buy loads of clothes but I just stick to wearing the same old favourites that I have. But I do try to wear the new stuff ocassionally. (It’s only if I’m not 100% keen on the new items I do use most of the stuff I buy lol)

5. I put a lot of thought into what I wear, throw my clothes on quickly, or just like to be comfortable?
– I would have to say all three of these things cause sometimes I spend sooo long deciding what to wear, then other times I’m rushing around and put anything on and then basically all the time my aim is to be comfy!

7. My closet is mostly full of?
– Graphic/text t-shirts as Primark have these so cheeply I have bought hundreds of them!!!

8. Most comfortable article of clothing I own is my?
– LEGGINGS. I live in them they are the best things ever

9. What hat would you never, ever wear?
– All of them!!! Jk 😜 it’s probably easier to say the hats I would wear. Literally a beanie in winter if it’s seriously cold and if I’m on holiday somewhere really hot one of those floppy hats. But I wear even these very rarely cause I’m not a fan of hats at all lol

10. What’s your style?
– Dailly = girly but casual and comfy
– Formal = classic with a splash of colour

11. Favourite t-shirt?
– I love a good graphic tee. You can get so many different kinds in Primark, like i said before, for next to nothing! I like Harry Potter ones or any comic book related ones!

12. Favourite dress?
– All of them really!!! But as my sister got married recently I would have to say my fave dress atm is my bridesmaid dress! I adore it and it was perfect all day for the wedding as its gorgeous but actually comfortable!

13. Favourite sweater?
– One from Primark it was only Β£5! It’s really nice on and it’s comfy and cosy!

14. Favourite shoes?
– Probably my good old vans or Converse tbh they go with everything and are super comfy!

15. Favourite bag?image

– I got this bag as a birthday present this year, its the only thing I own from River Island and it was around Β£50 but I absolutely love it!!!

That’s all folks! Lol

P.s. – imma take another break next month as that’s when my exams are but after that im totally free for a couple of months until I start uni and in that time imma blog more and maybe start a YouTube channel depending on how busy I am!!! πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

Storytime Sundays – My YouTuber Book CollectionΒ 

Hey!! Sorry for only getting round to post till Sunday this week but I was super busy with school and the weekend is the best time for posting and I’m really trying to write in advance but didn’t get a chance to recently but anyhow!! Got my mock exam results back and I got 3 A’s and a C so yeah super happy cause the C was in my hardest class which I’m surprised I even passed tbh 

So today I’m basically showing you all my YouTube related books I have read some of them but this is just a wee overview and I might do a review next week of one of them or another book I have read πŸ˜„

Let’s goooo……

1. Zoella – Girl Online

This was the first YouTuber book I bought and despite all the drama of people saying she didn’t write it, I still like it! To be fair it’s super childish but so am I so I didn’t really mind πŸ˜‚ Also I got to get it signed by Zoe and meet her for like 30 seconds which was amazing!!! However, I really didn’t feel the need to get the second one that came out recently as it’s probably not any better than the first!

image

2. Sprinkle of Glitter (Louise Pentland) – Life with a sprinkle of glitter & her 2016 Diary!

Sprinkle of glitter is my all time favourite YouTuber so when I saw she was bringing out 2 books I knew I needed to have them! I love her life with a sprinkle of glitter book as it gives you some great tips and advice. I also love the diary and use it everyday as each week it has a fun thing on the other page like DIY’s, tips, motivation or any other random fun thing!!!

image

3. Tanya Burr – Love Tanya

This is such an all round good book! It has many different sections like confidence and happiness, life and baking. It’s also got a little bit of a background into Tanya at the start which is lovely and the pictures are beautiful!

image

4. Dan and Phil – The Amazing Book Is Not On Fire!

Ufgghscggfuhhdhd I love Dan and Phil!!!! I got this at their tour – which was also amazing – sadly I didn’t get to meet them we were able to buy them signed at the tour! It’s amazing as it is a full on life story of them both right from when they were born, all through childhood, school up till now! It’s funny and really well written and it feels like I can hear them saying the words as I read it as its so genuine. 

image

5. Pointless Blog (Alfie Deyes) – The Pointless Book 1 & 2

These are a blatant copy of ‘Wreck this journal’ but oh well!!! They are fun and a good thing to do when bored! As they have a task on each page which could be writing stuff in the book, doing stuff outside of the book (like impressions) and destroying the book!

image

6. Carrie Hope Fletcher – All I Know Now

I love Carrie so I asked for her book for Christmas and I got it! I have started to read it and so far it’s great! She is a theatre star which is why the book is layed out like Acts instead of chapters. It gives you good advice as well as funny anecdotes of her life!

image

7. Tyler Oakley – Binge

I haven’t started to read this one yet as I just got this one for Christmas too but even without reading it I know it will be amazing!!! It’s basically an autobiography of Tyler’s life with lots of laughs throughout as well as some sad parts! Can’t wait to read it properly! 

image

There ya go! Hope you liked having an insight into all my YouTubers books I love supporting team internet so I hope to add many more to my collection!

Please don’t forget to like, gimme a follow and comment; do you have any of these books?, what other YouTubers books do you have? Or what’s your favourite YouTubers book?

Whatever Wednesday – Furry Friend Tag

Hey! This week thought I would do a wee tag post for you I know some people hate tag posts but personally I love doing them and reading them so hope you enjoy! It will be all about my furry friend!!! (As the title told u 😂😜)

The Questions:

1. What is your pets name? – Holly

2. What kind of pet is it and what breed? – Dog and she is an English Springer Spaniel

image

image

3. How long have you had your pet friend? – About 8 years

4. How did you get your pet? – My mum’s friend helps at a rescue dog home and my mum had mentioned to her that she was thinking of getting a dog so a while later – by this time my mum had forgotten she even said anything 😂 – her friend told her she had a dog that was perfect for us and my mum said yes and she went to pick her up there and then!!! She came from a man who hit her and didn’t feed her so it took a while to train her and reassure her but she is a perfect healthy dog now!! My little rescue doggy 😍

5. How old is your pet? – 12 (we think as the dog shelter didn’t know for sure how old she was when we got her)

6. What are some quirky things about your pets personality? – She snores soooo loud, she runs around in circles when she gets excited, she will do ANYTHING for a biscuit, she is super lazy and loves a belly rub!

7. What does your relationship with your pet mean to you? – So so so much, she sleeps in my room at night and if she wasn’t there it would feel so different and lonely. She’s allways there when you need a hug (but probably only cause she wants you to give her a treat after lol 😂😜)

8. What are some of your favorite past times with your pet? – Obviously going on walks but I really like when we go on holiday and she comes with us to the caravan as she’s just so happy and relaxed there and has lots more fun!

9. What are nicknames that you call your pet? – Holly Willoughby (after the TV presenter) and Hollywolly 😄😄😄

So there you go hope you like learning more about me and my doggy!

Please don’t forget to like and comment; do you have a pet?, Are you a cat or dog person? Or what’s your favourite animals?

Whatever Wednesday – My Colouring Book AddictionΒ 

Hey! I’m back for my second post this week all about that weird craze that recently popped up which is adult colouring books. (Not that kind of adult!) They are basically regular colouring books except some are very detailed and complex as well as the fact they aim to relax you and calm the mind.

So I have picked up a couple recently and want to share them with you *in blog form not physically soz πŸ˜‚* I will show you my top 5 favourite ones I have so here goes hope you enjoy!

1. Millie Marotta’s Animal Kingdom a Colouring Book adventure – Β£9.99
image
It includes all different types of animals like fish, birds,mammals, reptiles as well as trees and flowers too! Which are made up of intricate patterns for your creativity to be put to the test. The illustrations begin quite simple and progress to extremely detailed patterns within the images which is good as it eases you into it gently and then challenges you later. I enjoy colouring the less detailed ones more to be honest as the harder ones just make me more stressed trying to colour within the lines rather than relaxing me! Still really love it though highly recommend it such intricate and detailed drawings and pretty to look at even before you start colouring them! 

20160104_211006.jpg

These are the easy and simple options in the book yet are still really detailed and soo cute!!!

20160106_173330.jpg

SUPER CRAZY DETAILED ILLUSTRATION!!!

Here’s one really pretty one of an owl that I have started but not finished yet – I used watercolour pencils from WHSmith with came in a set of arond 36 I think and were fairly cheep less than Β£10. They are seriously the best pencils to use for this kind of thing; they give a great colour, are easy to blend and create different gradients of colours.

20160106_173652.jpg
I would give it 4/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟

2. Harry Potter Colouring Book – Β£9.99

20160104_210357.jpg

Absolutely love this one as it includes scenes from the film, character shots, creatures and iconic things from the film used to create patterns. This is much easier I think than the previous one but still has the range of easy one and harder ones. It’s really interesting seeing one of my favourite films turned into a colouring book but one negative is that with the illustration below I would find it seriously hard to colour all the way into the centre where the spine of the book is so I think it would look pretty strange but we shall see not attempted one of the big ones yet! What’s also good about this one is there is coloured photos at the back of most illustrations in the book to act as a guide when you are colouring them which is super helpful!

20160104_211200.jpg20160104_211425.jpg

Here’s one I’m almost finished and I loveeeee it the pencils make it even better I think! The thing I love most about these books is the fact the images look so good untouched but have the potential to look soooo much better just with a bit of imagination!

20160106_173924.jpg

 I have to give this one a 5/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

3. Doctor Who colouring book – Β£9.99

20160104_205818.jpg

I’m a total whovian so anything with a tadrdis on it has to be mine but I just lovveeeeeeee this!!! It has patterns created by characters from the show and again range from simple to more detailed. There’s sooo may great choices in this one that it’s hard to know where to start which is defo not a bad thing! My absolute favourite thing about it is the fact it has illustrations of some of the Doctors heads but they are made up by characters and creatures iconic to there seasons!!!! This is one of the books that I’m scared to start colouring in as I don’t want to ruin it!!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I aslo use these Stabilo fineliners when colouring in as they are sooo good at getting into the intricate sections in the drawings and are really good quality for around Β£10 for 20.
image

image
I have got to give this a 5/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

4. The gorgeous colouring book for grown-ups – Β£9.99

20160104_210303.jpg

This has much more patterns and swirls and shapes and intricately detailed images. It has a range of flower designs to graphic designs. This is one that actually could be relaxing I think as there’s less worry too me that I’m going to ruin my favourite film, TV show or beautiful animal so I think this one wins on that front but honestly it’s not THAT appealing just a bunch of shapes and swirls but I guess once coloured it would look super cool! 

20160104_211601.jpg

20160104_211531.jpg
This is one that I started to colour in really bold and bright colours and I think once finished it will look really effective I love the way in this book the illustrations don’t go all the way into the centre so you are able to reach and colour ever inch of the image! 

20160106_174122.jpg

This one deserves a 3/5 🌟🌟🌟 good but a bit meh!

5. Colouring book from Tiger (between Β£2-4 can’t remember! πŸ™„:oops:πŸ˜›)

20160104_210423.jpg

This is from a shop that opened in my area recently and I have quickly grown to be obsessed by its contents I think it’s origionally from another country not sure wihpch though but they have really cheep quirky good quality stuff in there so I luv it! πŸ˜‚ This one is by far the simplest out of the five but it is also one of the best as it really does relax you as its sooo much less interactive so not worried about going over the lines and the patterns are easier to follow and smaller so quicker to finish! Plus it’s the cheepest so is good to start out on your colouring book journey!

20160104_211627.jpg20160106_173131.jpg

This is one I have actually finished using felt tip pens I got in WHSimth as well it was a pack of about 100 for Β£5 in the sale it has really good colours that are perfect for this book they are bright and have fine tips so could be used in more detailed books too. I like this image as it has really interesting shapes and once all coloured looks really eye catching. 

20160106_173758.jpg
This book is well deserved of a 5/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I highly reccomend buying these all particularly the Animal Kingdom one if you want to be really challenged and produced really high quality work in the end or if you want a bit of fnu that’s simple and quick the gorgeous colouring book for grown-ups or the colouring book from Tiger. I absolutely love taking time out of my day when I can to sit down a be like a kid again colouring away in a book and yet in the end you can be left with a stunning piece of art made by an adult worthy of a place on your fridge if you where a kid or a couple likes on Instagram if you are older!!  πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
So there you go hope you liked that kind of post please don’t forget to like and comment; do you like these kinds of colouring books too?, do you have any of these? Or do you have any other recommendations 0f colouring books for me to try out?! Also give me a cheeky follow if you haven’t allready! You know you want to πŸ˜‹

Yours, 

Fangirling Owl
