Blogging, Birthdays and Boys.

So this is the first time you've heard off me since January last year. 

So if your reading this your probably wondering why i am writing on here again. 

Well since leaving this blog i went on to write another two blogs both of which
I never felt the same passion for when i was writing them. 
I don't know why but i always in the back of my mind considered this blog to me my "proper" blog
and the other two just kind of got left at the waste side. 

Ive been considering coming back and blogging on here for a while but wasn't sure. 

After making my mind up i thought it would be fitting to wait until around the same time 
I had originally started the blog which was shortly after my 19th birthday ! 

Well here i am sat here on my day of birth 3 years later and i am glad to be back. 

So what has happened in my life since i left ?

I have a new boyfriend - Josh
I have a new job - medical receptionist ( its an apprenticeship )
I have changed my hair numerous times since i was last here
And i still have no real idea what I'm doing with my life :) 

Thats really all i have for now but i will be back soon blogging at a regular pace i hope :D

Hello 2013

Hello everyone :) i know how much i have slacked on here the last few months but i have been deliberating quite a lot about the idea of starting a new blog as when i first started this i openly shared the links on my personal Facebook which has led to old school friends and just general people from my past reading this blog. Which sometimes i feel holds me back from truly writing what i want. So over the next few weeks i think i will be opening a new blog but am not sure wether i will carry this on as well or not. If i decide not to i will gladly give my new url to anyone who wants it :) 
Anyway on to nicer things ! My new years resolutions :) 

1. Take more photographs - I harassed my dad for a new camera for christmas and he came through ! I now own a dslr Sony A290 ! My main reason for wanting a camera is for my holiday in March ( New York, L.A and Las Vegas ) But i also want to take better pictures for my blog ! So hopefully will be getting to grips with things over the next week or so. 

2. Be more creative - Starting a very essay based university course has really made me miss my sketchbooks and drawing from college ! Therefore i want this year to be full of creative goodness. I have opened an Etsy and soon want to start making brooches and possibly hair bands to sell in it. I have also signed up to be apart of the 2013 Sketchbook Project . 

3. Be happy - I must admit i am a truly pessimistic person ! I cannot help it its just the way i am. But this year i really want to try and look on the bright side of life ( que Monty Python style whistling haha ) i am aware i am not going to become super positive over night but hopefully i will learn to be more balanced :) 

4. Read more - I seem to have an addiction to book buying ! Especially from Waterstones i seriously love that shop. The problem is i don't always read the books i buy and i just keep buying ! I think i have around 20 unread books in my room at this very moment ! So my resolution is to try and read all my already owned books before buying anymore. This sounds easier than it will be ! I am starting with a Life of Pi tomorrow :) 

5. Watch more new films - I have mentioned before on this blog that i love films but i really think that is probably an understatement ! I watch at least one film a day and on a good day probably about 3 or 4. I am a member of Netflix , Lovefilm, i have Sky Movies and i have an unlimited cinema pass which i use weekly. I also own over 100 dvds not to include my box sets so its safe to say i am slightly obsessed ! But asides from going to see new films at the cinema i tend to watch films i have seen before over trying new films. So this year i am going to try and watch as many new films as i can and also to write down every film i watch and add them up at the end of the year :) 

Do you have any resolutions ?

Christmas Day :)

Christmas Day :)

As you can see i have recently discovered  Polyvore ! :) 
I know its a bit early but i am already planning my Christmas Day outfit !
I bought this dress from Asos the other day and i absolutely love it !
It comes in this blue or a nude/light pink which i think is great because if it would have came with a black option i would of immediately picked that ! But the blue is gorgeous and its very different from something i would normally wear !
Evan though i am only sitting in my boyfriends house i have always been bought new fancy clothes for christmas day since i was a little girl so evan though I'm not really doing anything I'm going to dress up a little !
Have you thought about what you will wear christmas day ? or is it only me ! 

Ankle length pants

Primark Nail Beads Review

I picked this up in my local Primark last week after debating over getting the black version or the pink one ! As you can see the black won ! 
I was quite sceptical about this as it was so cheap at only £2.50 thats less than i normally pay for just one nail varnish never mind a nail bead set ! 
In the box you get a black nail varnish, the beads, a little funnel and a little plastic tray which i thought was a great idea ! 
I was really surprised at how simple it was i just painted my nail with two coats of black varnish (which i must say is the thickest and darkest black varnish i have ever used ) and whilst holding my nail over the little tray sprinkled on the beads. They tray caught the stray beads and i just fed them back into the bottle through the funnel ! On the box it says it takes 15 - 20 minutes to dry i would say it took about half an hour before i felt they where secure enough. 
I did this yesterday and can say that quite a few have fallen off since then :/ 
Overall i think this is great for a night out or a special occasion but its just not very practical for day to day wear as I'm constantly digging around my bag and rummaging through draws and thats probably contributed to the beads falling off ! 
But for only £2.50 i can't complain and i would definitely use it again and will probably buy the pink one as well :) 
Have you tried any of these types of manicures ? How did you find them ? 

P.S in other news my Etsy shop is now open :) There is only one item at the mo but stop by and have a look and let me know what you think :)

Insta-Update :)

1. This week i went into Liverpool shopping with my auntie who was home from Singapore and the rest of the family. I love that all the christmas decorations are up ! Those reindeers light up in the night as well :) 

2. Whilst out we went for lunch at Jamie Oliver's Italian. I had wild rabbit taglioni which was the first time i had ever had rabbit and it was quite nice. 

3. Getting slightly obsessed with Temple Run ! Me and my boyfriend are having a competition on scores which i can happily say I'm winning :) 

4. Got my boyfriend to buy me this giant cheshire cat from the disney store as one of my christmas presents ! I absolutely love alice in wonderland and the cheshire cat is one of my favourite characters. 

5. Believe it or not this is my first ever purchase from Lush ! After reading so many reviews raving about this product i decided to go try it myself. And i am so glad i did i am in love with this shower gel ! And am definitely going to invest in a lot more before it goes off sale ! 

6. Me and my friend Lauren decided to do halloween presents instead of christmas presents but only got the chance to meet up last week ! She got me this Harry Potter necklace which i must say i haven't took off i love it ! Along with a very creepy blank witchcraft journal which i am too scared to write in ! 

7. I have carried on drawing and have took to doodling on the train ! This was inspired by the movie Moonrise Kingdom .

8. Finally got my collar clips i ordered from Ebay ! ( you can get them here )I really love them ! And got loads of compliments on them which is always a nice thing :) 

9. Another tattoo ! I was unsure weather to do a whole post on this as i don't know if you are interested in my tattoo's ! This is a map of the world across my feet. Its also my 5th tattoo overall ! ( if you are interested on a post about this or all of my tattoos let me know )

This is basically everything i have been up to lately ! I got some lovely nail varnishes as well this week including a Primark version of the caviar manicure which i will review this week :) 

What have you done this week ?

Sneak Peak !

I mentioned in my last post i was getting back into drawing. Well for some time i have wanted to start an Etsy shop but have been at a loss as what to sell. After some browsing on Etsy i found people selling  hand painted Russian Dolls and i really loved the idea ! So i ordered a blank set to try out and this is what i decided on ! A Gingerbread family :) I haven't quite finished as they need varnishing but all the art is done ! I really love them. So hopefully i will have an Etsy shop set up within the week :)
