Not Quite London’s Questions

1. What is your favorite subject to blog about?

– I have enjoyed writing about beauty related things so far but I’m excited to write about more lifestyle things and book reviews or products reviews. I like doing ‘favourite’ or wishlist posts ***hint hint I have a luxury wishlist coming up*** 😂

– TEA all the way!!! I love a cuppa nearly every day!!! My mum always moans at me because I have nearly 3 spoons of sugar in my tea!!! 😜

3. Top 5 books/films

– Films = All the Harry Potter films, Any and Every Disney movie, The Borrowers, Big Hero 6 and Panic Room!!!

4. Favourite season and why?

– Summer because there’s no school, it’s warm ( well as warm as it can be in Scotland 😂) and I get to go on holiday with my family!!!

5. Dream holiday destination?

– Probably America because I really want to go to all the cool American shops like Target and Walmart and go shopping in Sephora or Bath and body works. Also I want to desperately see Wicked on Broadway *** cries a little inside*** and I want to go to all the rubbishy touristy places that most Americans are probably sick off tourists going on about 😜

6. Favourite cocktail?

– Obviously never had an alcoholic one but when I was on holiday in Turkey I went to a restaurant that did children’s fruity cocktails and they were all named after Disney princess’s… I think if I remember right my favourite was a Cinderella which had tropical juice, strawberries and pineapple in it 😂

7. Most embarrassing moment?

– Right this is going to be hard to narrow down … Okay … Years ago I was running up the stairs racing my dad who was in the lift to get into my flat and when I got to my floor I heard a phone ringing and assumed my dad was already there and waiting for me and that it was his phone that was ringing. Soo back then I used to constantly shout “Your phones goin!!!” when I heard a phone ringing…. So naturally I burst through the stairs door to my landing and shouted “Your Phones Goin!!!!!” to what I thought would be my dad … But … No … It was a random stranger ( a builder in fact, working in my flat) and he gave me an awkward smile and nod of the head and said ” haha … Yeah …. Thanks …. I got it” with the worlds most awkward laugh. All I can remember next is trying to mumble ha no sorry I thought you were someone else but I think that came out as

“HA …. NO ….. urghaaghh uhguhu!?!?!?!?!?”

Yeah ….. he just looked confused as hell and I slunk away to my flat and died with massive embarrassment 😭

8. Favourite beauty treatment?

– I had a Turkish Bath when I was on holiday and it feel like heaven. It consisted of going in the sauna and sweating like an insane pig, then going into a massive tiled room and throwing freezing cold water over each other that caused extreme pain and then lying on a big platform where a strange Turkish man put soapy bubbles and scrubby things on you and then you went then another freezing cold water throwing bit to wash this all off you (although this sounds horrific and illegal it was AMAZING!!!) . Then, we got a honey face and body massage and got to go in a hot tub which was literally one of the best things ever!! – So yeah whatever category of beauty treatments this comes under, this is what I pick 😂 lol

9. Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?

– Well ideally I would love to have finished college/university and be getting and job, have

This or That Tag!

I was tagged to do the “This or That Tag” by the amazing BeautyBooksBubsandMe! You should check her awesome blog out! So here goes … I hope you enjoy!

Makeup

Blush or Bronzer?
– Bronzer I’m soo pale … I don’t think I could live without it!! Besides my checks are already pink enough it’s annoying! 😁

Lipgloss or Lipstick?
– I like Lipstick because Lipgloss can be really sticky and doesn’t last long but lipsticks are more likely to be moisturising and last all day!

Eyeliner or Mascara?
– Mascara because I’m rubbish at eyeliner so it would love life without it 😂 plus mascara iz so fun to put on 🙈

Foundation or Concealer?
– Foundation is my literal life it hides all the things I want hidden and I rarely use concealer … the foundation I use (rimmel wake me up) is gorgeously shinny and makes my face brighter so I have to say foundation!

Neutral or Colour Eyeshadow?
– Neutral … I love bronze colours on my eyes I like it suits my eye colour and skin tone! I also like doing a smokey eye with blacks and slivers though!! But, I would like to be braver when it comes to colour on my eyes … maybe I will this spring/summer … you never know 😄

Pressed or loose eyeshadow?
– Pressed … I think loose is to fiddly and looks weird on my eye lids 😉

Nails

OPI or China Glaze?
– I’m guessing these brands are American because I haven’t heard of them … My favourite polish is BarryM or Essie though 😜

Long or Short Nails?
– I love long nails soo much!

Acrylic or Natural?
– Natural 100% … acrylics have the tendancey to ruin your nails so I will stick to natural thanks!😜

Bright or Dark?
– BRIGHT … pinks or purples or reds are my favourite!

Flower or no flower?
– I don’t like to fuss over my nails I just like them plain so ko flower

Body

Perfume or Body Spray?
– Perfume I love Flash by Jimmy Choo it smells amazing!!!

Lotion or Body Butter?
– Body Butter especially the soap and glory one it makes you feel like silk!!! 😍

Body Wash or Soap?
– Body wash they smell nicer and if you drop it you can actually pick it up in the shower without chasing a bar of soap around!! 😂

LUSH or Other bath companies?
– Lush there’s no other company that comes anywhere close to how good Lush is!!! I live the bubble bars and bath bombs and desperately want to try thier face mask!!!! 😻

Fashion

Jeans or Sweat Pants?
– I HATE JEANS!!!! yeah not a fan … I think the put you in unnecessary discomfort … jogy bottoms as I call them aren’t flattering and I only own one pair of them …. I LIVE IN LEGGINGS!!! they are my life and I’m proud …. They are comfy and come in pretty patterns! 😁

Long or short sleeves?
– Both depends on the weather ☺

Dresses or skirts?
– I love dresses so much I have a lot of them and wear them all the time but Skirts annoy me so I have less of them

Stripes or Plaid?
– Stripes definitely I love white and navy stripe together I think they are really cute 🙂 – Plus, I don’t think I can rock the Plaid look 😛

Flip Flops or Sandals?
– Sandals all the way because they are comfier and look nicer … With flip flops the bit in between your toes annoys me sooo much!!

Scarves or hats?
-I’m obsessed with scarves … I have far too many!!!! They are just the best part of any outfit…. And come to think of it… I don’t own a hat!

Studs or dangly earrings?
– *** don’t be made okay*** I don’t have my ears pierced!!!! … I’m just not into poking holes in my body to but metal into all right!!

Necklaces or Bracelets?
– I go through phases where I like one and not the other I love sparkly brackets most of the time though – but if the necklace has an Owl on it I’m ALL over that in a split second!!! 😂

Jackets or Hoodies?
– Hoodies are soo comfy so I wear them when I go ‘food shopping’ (to Tesco or Asda) or when I take my dog for a walk but I usually wear jackets when I go out properly school or to the high street etc 😁

Hair

Curly or Straight?
-Naturally wavey … so I like to straighten it but then I also LOVE to curl it and get it back to how curly it was when I was younger!!!

Bun or ponytail?
– Ponytail when I do my hair I’m never awake enough to concentrate on doing a bun!! 😋

Bobby Pins or Butterfly Clips?
-Bobby Pins they are ALLWAYS a life saver! … but also a pain in the but cause I find mine everywhere … around my room, in my bag and all around the house in unexpected drawers or corners!!! … Please tell me I’m not the only one?!?!

Hair Spray or Hair Gel?
-None… but sometimes if I’m adventurous and do a fancy ‘up do’ I will use hair spray

Long or Short hair?
-Very long and I love it!!!

Light or dark?
– My hair is light blonde with ombre ends so it’s even more light there … So definitely light is my favourite!!! 😄

Side sweep or Full on bangs?
-No ‘fringe’ or side parting … I have a middle parting so I guess that’s not any of those 😜

Up or Down?
My hair looks best when it’s down and that’s when I love it but if I can’t be bothered with it up is allways my friend!!

Random

Rain or Shine?
-Shine!!! No questions asked! 🙅🌞👍

Summer or Winter?
-i think I would have to say summer because we get a massive holiday from school, it’s the only time the weather is decent in Scotland and I get to go on holiday with my family – BUT Winter has Christmas and my birthday soooooo that’s a really hard question 😹 – BOTH!!!

Autumn or Spring?
-Neither!!!! because nothing at all happens in Autumn or Spring I think it should just be Summer than Winter because there’s hardly any difference between them now! Summers like Spring and Winters like Autumn!!!

Chocolate or Vanilla?
-You can’t be chacolate … literally anything chocolate flavoured is the best … like cake, actual chocolate, ice cream and ven beauty products that smell of chocolate are awesome!!!

What’s in my make up bag?

Hello there beautiful people! See that caught your attention – today’s post if you didn’t get it from the title is a “What’s in my makeup bag!” So here goes – hope you enjoy! 😸

Make-up Bag

20150306_185103

  • As you can see I use the ‘Zoella Guinea Pig Make-Up Bag’, which you can get from Superdrug (UK) for only £8.
  • I love this because its soo cute and fits everything I need perfectly!
  • Plus its pink – so what’s not to love!?!?

Foundation

20150306_175849

Rimmel London / Wake Me Up Foundation /                               201 Classic Beige / £8

  • This is my all-time favourite foundation … its just bloody brilliant! It has great coverage and is easy to put of with my wee brush which (I’m not even going to lie) is from Primark for £1 (Its actually really good okay!)
  • What i love about this foundation is that it has little bits of gliitter in it so it leaves your face looking refresshed and glowing – And I think the price is great for what you get!!!
  • I need this some mornings to make me actually look awake because you all know what its like to be up late studying (ha! cough*** watching Netflix***cough) and when you get up you look like a walking zombie! – so for these occasions this is a lifesaver!

Concealer

20150306_182747

Rimmel London / Hide The Blemish Concealer /                      004 Natural Beige / £4

  • I’m not usually too fussy when it comes to concealer but lately I’ve been sticking to this same one and I’ve went thorough a lot ( an unspeakable amount) this is actually one I’m about to throw out because I’ve completely used it all and desperately need to buy more!!!
  • It does exactly what i want it too – hides my spots and tiny bit under the eyes makes those dark circles gone!
  • As you can tell I like Rimmel London – and apparently my skin tone is beige!

Bronzer

20150306_183531

2True / All Over Natural Bronzing Powder / Shimmering Bronze / £2.29

  • This is Superdugs’ own brand of cosmetics … Not going to lie I have had better bronzer’s (like ones from Avon or Bourjois) – the only reason I have this is because my old Bourjois chocolatey one ran out and I “borrowed this one from my mum” and have just never bothered to give it back! But the brush is so light and fluffy and applies it really well! (I have no idea where the brush is from sorry)
  • BUT I actually do like this – if your looking for a cheaper version of the more expensive bronzer’s this is perfect as it gives you a nice colour and is great all over your face to make you tanned..
  •  The good thing is it doesn’t make you look orange or like an “Oompa-Loompa” ( from Charlie And The Chocolate Factory ) unlike some other bronzer’s! Also the suntanned look it gives you doesn’t fade throughout the day ( which is surprising from such a cheap product ) – so that’s probably why I haven’t bothered to give it back to my mum!!!

Contouring

20150306_180233 1

Makeup Revolution London / Sculpt &                                          Contour Kit / £4

  • This is also from Superdrug and its THE best thing I have ever used – in the palette the colours look really strange but when they go on your skin the bronzer is perfection ( I only use this one for contouring not for all over my face ), the blusher is a gorgeous pinky dusky rose colour and it brings out your natural rosiness in the apples of your checks and the highlighter is brilliant, its a bright shimmering white that reflects the light spectacularly!
  • I don’t believe you need to spend hundreds on make-up for it to be good quality because everything in my make-up bag is less than £10 but they do the job – really well even if I don’t say so myself and this is a prime example of this!
  • Also you don’t even need a lot on the little brush provided (which is also really good and gets right in to where you want it to go) so this will last you a long time! – 100% recommend this!

Mascara

20150306_172138 (2)

Maybelline New York / The Colossal GO EXTREME! Volum’ / Black Waterproof / £7

  • BEST MASCARA I HAVE EVER OWNED – that’s pretty much all I have to say!!!!!
  • MAKES MY LASHES LONG AND SEPARATED!!!
  • (Ooookkaay calm down…) Its really good … (***just breath***) … its not clumpy or have that awful smell that some mascaras do – plus the wand is really cool its designed to double the length and volume of your lashes and it doesn’t half do that job!! – If you are in need of a new mascara you must get this!

Eye-Liner

20150306_182852

Avon / Super Extend Liquid Eye Liner / Black / £6.50

  • This is the first eye liner I ever bought and i will never buy any other! its is just perfect the pen is great for doing the normal line of your top and bottom lashes but its also amazing for doing “winged” eye liner.
  • The colour is jet black and doesn’t fade it dries super quick and doesn’t smudge.
  • Also I left it open without its lid accidentally one night and it had not dried up which I was soo happy about (don’t know if that’s an actual selling point or if it was just luck!!!)

Eye Shadow

Makeup Revolution London / Eye Shadow Palette / Naked / £7

Makeup Revolution London / Eye Shadow                                  Palette / Naked / £7

  • This is such a great palette because it has all the colours that I love to use and these is a large amount of eye shadow provided so it will take a while to run out! Plus its so cheap for 12 shades!!!
  • The best thing is the colours are super pigmented and it comes with some matt shades and some glittery
  • It is so versatile because it comes with nude shades for a natural day look and really dark shades for a smoky evening look – this is a smaller version of a massive palate that I own which has around 150 shades in it which if this gets 20 likes I will do a review and swatches or an eye makeup look using it!!!

Lip Glosses

20150306_182419

Bourjois Paris / 3D Effect Lip Gloss / 05 / £8

  • I genuinely adore this lip gloss my reasons are; make my lips look fuller, the colour is a gorgeous salmony peachy but natural looking pinky shade, it is super glittery, it doesn’t leave my lips feeling sticky or irritated and it really does stay on your lips for exactly how long you need it to – which usually is for a whole day
  • The packaging is to die for!!! (I just want to leave it out in my room so everyone can appreciate its beauty!!!)
  • Overall, it make my lips look and feel sooo nice!!! And the price is brilliant for the product you get!
20150306_180838 1

Tanya Burr Lip Gloss / Exotic Island / £7

  • If you read my last post you will know I have Tanya’s nail polish in Little Duck but I said her lip glosses are much better and this us why; its a gorgeous bright pink shade, the duffel applicator is so soft and makes it simple to apply, it leaves your lips moisturised and super shiny and it doesn’t leave your lips sticky
  • It also smells like your favourite summers day perfume and easily makes your lips the focal point of your make up look
  • BUT like a lot of lip products its downfall is disappearing when you eat and drink and it becomes very transparent looking and like you’ve put it on really badly – but the good points out way this negative!

Lipsticks

20150306_175555 1

Avon / Extra Lasting Lipstick / Pink Perfection / £7.50

  • The colour is a a bright shiny pink it is my ultimate favourite lipstick because it stay on ALL day even if you eat or drink and it feels soo soft on my lips and makes them look so perfect!
  • it smells so fruity and is great for so many occasions – I have worn it out for a birthday party and I have even worn it for school
  • This is definitely something I will be repurchasing again and again – there is also dozens of shades which I will also need to try out! And at this price I will easily be able to do so!!!
20150306_183109

Maybelline New York / Super Stay 14hr Lipstick / 510 Non-Stop Red / £7

  • This lipstick is out to fool everyone!! It looks closer to a dark pink shade BUT it is a spectacular bright red it is a more than gorgeous colour!!!
  • I bought it for a Halloween costume a few years ago ( I know at this point you will be screaming at your digital device wonder what I was …. Soo I may as well tell you … I was Minnie Mouse okayyy!!!) and it was perfect so I couldn’t stop using it so I have had to repurchase it many times!
  • This has the best smell out of all the lipsticks i have and have ever had ….. To me it smells like strawberries but not normal strawberries it smells like a super sweet and juicy summery strawberry that makes you want to eat your own lips!!!

Other

20150306_184118

EOS Lip Balm / Strawberry Sorbet / £4

  • Yes I know this is not make up buuttt I physically cant leave the house with out one of these lip balms … my lips are soo dry all the time and these help stop that! This is one of my favourite flavours (idk) it smells really sweet and fruity but not sickly sweet.
  • It feels so refreshing and moisturising but the best part is the fact that its not oily like Vaseline is because I HATE that sticky feeling Vaseline gives you! This has soo many benefits for your lips and that’s why I love it!
  •  And how can you argue with the design of the product/packaging … it look like an egg … the lip balm is round … and you put the round thing round your lips …. and of course as usual it all boils down to the fact its PINK!

Hand Cream

20150306_184202

Soap & Glory / Hand Food / £5

  • Yes …again its not make up but it can live without this with me at all times … its amazing!!! It smells fantastic to me this smell reminds me of hundreds of years ago where woman has musky perfume on that smells like lavender and rose as its such a classic and timeless smell!
  • It leaves your hands soft and smelling good for a long time and the best part I it doesn’t make your hands really oily and greasy!
  • The funny thing is when I go out and have to take a smaller bag instead of my hand bag the thing I worry about is it the bag will fit my hand cream in it … rather than worrying if it will fit my phone, keys or purse!!!!!!

There you go!! Hope you enjoyed that this is the most time I have spent on a post and I hope its worth it!! I really enjoyed writing this so I hope you enjoy reading it!

Top 5 Spring Nail Polishes!

Hey guys!

I decided to do a little Spring nail polish favourites and mini review of each polish I choose as my first beauty related post. So I hope you like it!!!

Number 1:

BarryM / Gelly Hi-Shine / Fondant 450

BarryM / Gelly Hi-Shine / Fondant 36

I absolutely love this nail polish, the colour is gorgeous and I find that BarryM’s brushes are really good quality meaning its easy to apply and only needs one coat for good coverage and if you want to be picky two coats is perfection! This is great for the spring season as the colour is so subtle yet striking – I would say its a pinky purple shade that is super glossy and shiny just like the name suggests! The cherry on the cake for this polish is the price at only £3.99!  A definite 5/5 from me!

Number 2:

Rimmel London I heart lasting finish - your majesty 239

Rimmel London / I heart lasting finish / Your Majesty 239

This a an extraordinary colour (not even kidding) sometimes when you look at it its definitely silver but then other times its sooo gold – I love it!!! Also, it is really good for not chipping so it lasts for a good week or so. I think I will definitely be wearing this in spring because it is bold and girly and will go with everything I wear. Again this is  so inexpensive at £2.99! Finally, the only downside to this cheep price is the packaging because I dropped it once onto my carpeted floor and the plastic top cracked slightly … but ya know we can live with that because its so freakin’ pretty!! So its a 4/5 for that reason

Number 3:

Tanya Burr / Little Duck

Tanya Burr / Little Duck

Firstly I’m going to say how amazing it is that Tanya has her own range of cosmetics *** Round of Applause*** and now mention how stunning the shade is!! I mean look its so bright and glossy … yeah I love it a little too much. But … its not cheap or really expensive at £5.99 but the thing is the brush is terrible and I would have expected a better one since the polishes at half of this price have really good ones! I don’t mean to be picky but for me the formula is far too runny so its hard to apply! So for these reasons its a 3/5 but I still LOVE it!!! (sorry Tanya! – your lip glosses are much better)

Number 4;

BarryM /Speedy / Quick Dry  / Pit Stop 450

BarryM / Speedy / Quick Dry / Pit Stop 6

I have been searching everywhere for a colour like this for nearly a year and I bought this about two weeks ago and I’m not kidding the wait was well worth it!!! The shade is a really light but bright grey and as the name suggest it dies in a split second. Which is great but also not so great, as sometimes I’ve just started to put it on my nail and for me this means one line down the middle, and then I get distracted or fumble with the brush in the bottle, and when I go to finish my nail, the first line of polish is in the stage before its totally dry, when if other polish touches it, it will wrinkle and go all lumpy which is so annoying! (** and breath ** that was a bloody long sentence!) But I can deal with that because it literally doesn’t chip I’ve had it on for a week now and its still not chipped! This is another steal at only £3.99. So, overall it gets a 4/5!

Number 5:

20150304_175721 (1)

Rimmel London / Lycra Pro / Professional Finish / Fancy Fushia 295

Finally, you cant have a nail polish favourites without a pink shade … I mean is that even legal!? If you didn’t read my last post which I don’t know why you wouldn’t have … because come on it was amazing (*** At this point I hope sarcasm is clear on the internet because if not .., you should all know I’m not that bighead!***) … as I was saying you would now that my ultimate favourite colour is pink soooo that’s why I had to include one pink, and this one is the best one I have as its super bright and it says it has an anti-fade system (on the back of the bottle) which is clear as it stay as bright for over a week and doesn’t start to chip till this point either!! It costs £5.99, which is probably why it has the best brush by far, as its wide and the “bristles” (idk) are close together so its easy to apply and for perfect application one coat is more than enough (you know here the word coat has nothing to do  with an item of clothing … I mean its your choice you can put more than one coat on whilst giving yourself a manicure but that would be pretty strange! (just to let you know I’m a really sarcastic person so expect strange comments like that – sorry if that’s not your thang) For me this is a clear 5/5 just for the colour never mind all the other great aspects!

So there you go hope you enjoyed that little insight into my world of nail polishes and the strange thoughts that go around in my head! If you have any nail polish recommendations feel free to comment them down below as well as if you liked this kind of post. Don’t forget to give this a like if you like it and give me a follow if your a stalker. (there’s that sarcasm again)

That’s all for now but the last thing I want to say is how grateful I am to 53 wonderful people out there who hit the follow button in the space of four days that number is mental to me!!!

Also, I hope my pictures are okay I just used my phone to take them so please tell me how they are in the comments below.

BTW. – I haven’t really figured out a schedule for my post updates yet, so at the minute its whenever I’m not drowning under homework or watching Pretty Little Liars which I started last night which was such a bad mistake because now I’m totally addicted!! But I will try set out specific regular days for posting, next week!

Thank you all for reading this, liking and following me!

The Fun Questions Tag!

So for my first proper bloggy blog post I thought I would do a tag so you guys can get to know me a little bit better!

So here goes …

Tag:Fun Questions

1) When is your birthday?

  • January 3rd 1999

2) What are 3 of your favourite colours? 

  • My ultimate favourite HAS to be pink, then turquoise and purple!

3) What are your 3 favourites quotes?

  • “Today you are you, that is truer than true, There is no one alive who is you’re than you!” – Dr. Seuss 
  • “The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination” – Albert Einstein 
  • “Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius, and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous, than absolutely boring” – Marilyn Monroe 
  • I think each of these quotes are equally ‘deep’ in thier own kind of way -I think they all really say be you and that’s all that matters!!! 

 

4) Are you addicted to YouTube?

  • HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!! NO!!! ……. Well … Actually …. Yes! Fine it’s really bad I no but my day is not complete without watching YouTube videos!! 😅😂 – I know this will be the same for lots of you!?!?

5) What are 3 of your favourite shows on TV?

  • The Vampire Diaries, In The Flesh (if you have not seen this you must!! – its so sad!!) and Doctor Who! I’m a whovian and I’m proud 😜

6) What are 3 qualities do you like in a best friend?

  • Emm …. They have to be kind, open minded and have some of the same interests as I do! I’ve made the mistake of being friends with someone who was the exact opposite kind of person as me … It didn’t end well!

7) Do you like your name? 

  • Yes! Most people probably would say that they didn’t like their own name but I like thinking that my mum choose that name for new born baby me!! – that sounds weird but I think you will understand what I mean 😂😝

8) If you have the choice to pick your own name, what will it be?

  • I really like the names Alexandra or Jessica – I just think they are really pretty and … This will sound stupid but they are “nicknameble” (easy to give you a nickname like Alex etc.) and my name is not but all my friends names are and I think I’m missing out on something good!! 😂😂😆😆

9) What is your fantasy dream?

  • For my favourite TV shows, films and books to come to life and for me to be able to jump in and out of them and have different lives in each and be friends with my favourite characters in them!!! I would love to go into Sherlock and be friends with him or go into The Vampire Diaries and fall in love with Damon! And these would not be weird because the charters would be real and you wouldn’t be thought of as “insane” or “weird” …. Yeah I’ve thought into that far to much!!! Let me dream okay!?! Don’t judge me 😂

 

10) Do you wear makeup?

  • Yes! As often as I can, to be honest, I rarely wear makeup to school though because it takes to long and nobody at school actually cares if you look ‘nice’ – What I mean is I don’t think you need makeup to look ‘nice’ all the time – for special occasions or days out I like to wear makeup as I love the feeling it gives you but I don’t need it to make me confident! (preach it sista!!! 😆😆😋😋)

 

11) If you could write a book, what would the title be and what would it be about?

  • It would probably be a murder mystery or a dystopian world or a love story kind thing … so it would be called something like … “Forgotten Tomorrow”
  • It would be about a girl who is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and is the youngest person ever to be diagnosed with it. It would basically be about her finding true love then having to tell him she has Alzheimer’s and it would be about they’re struggles and how true love conquers all!(mentally throws up at the gooey lovey dovey nonsense) But yeah … He sticks with her till she forgets everything and then spoliler alert she dies – yup happy I know 😜

12) What makes you cry?

  • Sad films like The Fault In Our Stars or Harry Potter when Dobby died! 😭 Or when someone evil like Steven Moffat kills of your favourite character in a film or TV show or book

13) What makes you angry?

  • Horrible, nasty people who judge others, are rascist or participate in any other form of derogatory behaviour – wither it be towards sexuality, wieght or gender!

14) What makes you happy?

  • Seeing my neice and nephew and being with my friends and family!! Plus watching YouTube videos allways makes me happy after a bad day!

15) What is “Fangirling?”

  • fan, (usualy female) especially one who is obsessive about comics, film/TV, music, a fictional character or an actor/actress/singer/band . 
  • This usually involves losing the ability to breath when they wittness their particular obsession and buying anything and everything related to their  obsession – a.k.a – me!!! 

16) What are your 3 favorites snacks?

  • Strawberries🍓, Crisps and anything involving cheese!!! 

17) What are your 3 favourite foods?

  • Spaghetti Bolognesse, Cheese Pizza🍕 and I’m not even going to lie … Cake 🎂 😋

18) What are your 3 favourite drinks?

  • Water – strawberry flavour, a Slushi and tea!

19) Can you tell us a little about yourself?

  • Ummm …. Sooo…. Me ….. I’m a 16 year old girl from Scotland who does soo many extra curricular activities that I consider procrastinating to be my closet thing to a hobby – if that wasn’t clear I don’t take part in many “hobbies” I like to do things that invole not leaving my house – like Netflix and reading and baking – I don’t think that makes me a bad person!? 😁 I’m in my second last year of high school and I can’t wait for it to be over!! I used to be certain I wanted to go to university to study international business but now in not so sure I would like to do something more enjoyable but I don’t t know how to find a career that is right for me – I have a dog called Holly and I like to talk … a lot … that’s why some of the answers I’m giving go on for so long 😝😝 seems like I didn’t pay attention to the word little in this question 😂 Lastly ( I promise ) I really love all things beauty and fashion related! 👠👗💄💕

  • I have a huge addiction to pretty notebooks .. Actually almost any kind of notebook to be honest!!!
  • I have way too many books that I will never get the chance to read 😢
  • I’m ashamed to say it but I had an obsession with loom bands and now after the hype about them has ended I’m left with a huge box filled with thousands of them … that will probably never see the light of day again!
  • Finaly, I love buying clothes and shoes and bags and scarves and makeup even though I know I don’t need any more!!!! My room is full of these things yet I consisteently purchase more … It’s an addiction … I need help! 😂

Hello … Umm … Heeelllooo is anyone there!??!

Well what can I say…

I’ve decided to start a blog.

As you can see.

Why?

Well right now things in my life are … How do I put this …” Interesting ” … Yeah I guess that sums it up! 😆

In my family theres up and coming weddings and a new baby. Plus, in school this is one of – if not THE – most important year of my high school career; I’m in fifth year – which is the year before the year you leave for college or university – and what qualifications I get this year define what I can do next year – my last year :twisted::oops:😱 – so yeah my stress levels are HIGHHHH 😥😋

Also in this year of school I’m going on lots of exciting adventures – going to the theatre, going camping, and going to London!!! Just to name a few!

All of these exciting and not so exciting personal life stuff will be documented here in order to get stuff off my chest which I think will help my anxiety and panic attacks … yeah your right another teen with anxiety issues jeeezzzo … Along with fashion and beauty pilled on top – talking about what I buy, reviewing what I buy and other awesome things! 😁

Here I can talk about all the things happening in my life and hopefully someone … Anybody … Can join in! With advice or to take my advice or to just be apart of my corner of the internet! I’d like to call it my “internet support group”. ( any danisnotonfire fans – I swear I’m not stealing his thing 😜)

I want this to be a genuine place where us girls – and boys – can REALY be ourselves- without being judged or put down by anyone for just being who we are!!! I will also post photos here because I’m OBSESSED with photography – I don’t know if I’m any good at it; I guess you can be the judge of that!

Finally I will also be talking about my favourite fandoms, TV shows – like The Vampire Diaries – and films – Like The Hunger Games & The Fault In Our Stars – as well as anything Marvel and DC related!!!!

Soooooo if you are interested please follow me to keep updated with my blog posts – which I will try to do once a week – and I hope what I say on here can help at least one person and that people will enjoy reading it!

Well… I guess that all for now. Thanks for reading – that means soooo much to me!!! ( if anyone has been reading that is!) Feel free to air your comments below on how you think my first attempt at a blog post went or with any ideas of what my next post should be!

Yours,

Fangirling Owl
