Favourite Netflix Picks for the Month

Hello sweets today I’m sitting watching Netflix all day long therefore i thought it would be relevant to share my favourite TV picks. 


1. DEXTER! 

I’m nearly on the last season, i adore this show…. it’s addictive. If you like a serial killer plus forensic blood splatter analysis in one, this is the show for you. 

2. Rick and Morty 

I’m unsure if this is Netflix but who cares good TV is what matters here ūüôā

American Dad and Family Guy are great but they have slowed down a bit and watching the same episode over and ever isn’t fun. Rick and Morty is like these shows but a scientist and his grandson. BLOODY BRILLIANT, I find nothing funny but this is hilarious.

3. The Originals 

Think of a more adult version of Thw Vampire Diaries, not that The Vampire Diaries isn’t great because it’s amazing. However take away the high school part and we have the Originals, plus Klous is definitely something good….

4. Riverdale 

This had me on the edge of my seat well… bed, all season. It was full of twists and turns and it’s definitely so,etching to watch amazballs. 

And now the best part, my favourite snacks for these Netflix shows… yumm yumm

Candy Floss Grapes are amazing. It’s not like when you get a flavoured thing and it tastes nothing like it, it’s very candyflossy! It makes healthy eating a tad bit easier.


Harribo Milkshakes are the best Harribos around yumm yumm yumm.


That’s all from me, let me know any Netflix shows I should be watching and what you watch off the list above

Driving, Jobs and Shopping! 

Hiya everyone! Today I thought I would give you a tad update on things…

Number one… I have finally started to take driving lessons, yes I know I’m a little late but I never had the money but now I do(well I’m scraping together every penny to be a adult with a car that might possibly have eyelashes). How do I have the pennies to scrape up you may ask well… another adult step. A proper job…kinda, well they call when they need me thank god that’s a lot lately otherwise my dreams of having a mint car with eyelashes is over. I get I have to pass the test yet for my dreams to become reality but we have to start somewhere!

It’s mine and my boyfriends 3 years next month and he brought me some beautiful shoes, now they are no Jimmy Choo but to me a pair of converse is so much more exciting than a pair of heels I am unable to walk in leaving myself looking extremely strange to everyone around me. Just the original high top converse. Whenever I buy converse I go for crazy colour schemes and out there patterns but the original pair are the best bloody thing ever!

I also have been using a new toothpaste and mouthwash… more adult things(truly a adult when toothpaste excites you).  This is the Beverly Hills Formula Perfect White Black mouthwash and toothpaste. This can be brought in superdrug for ¬£4.99(i got mine on sale for ¬£1.50… bargain!) I never thought these ‘whitening’ products worked but this works wonders. Must say it’s a little strange using black toothpaste but it becomes normal. Tea and coffee stains are removed and my teeth have never looked better plus I’m definitely a fan of a bright smile.


That’s all from me sugar dumplings(naa that one isn’t great).

 Let me know if you love Beverly Hills Formula as much as me and if you are a converse or heels girl! 

Talk soon!

Beauty and Clothing Haul and Some Favourites 

Hiya peeps(trying something new…. nope peeps isn’t happening).

I have gathered some things from various shops over the past few weeks and thought I would share them with you. I’m quite broke but it’s ok because I got myself a job! Anyways this is what I brought, plus some cheeky favourites. 

Primark! I do love the shop, here’s what I brought.


Both the shorts and the skirt were ¬£8 each, bargin! The shorts kinda of remind me of the clothes I used to wear when I was around six but ah well they are just so cute! The skirt is a staple piece that I’ve always wanted but never found, well Primark has done well, because I can now introduce you to my favourite piece of clothing, my ¬£8 denim skirt. 


This is a bra, I’m posting my bra on the interwebs… strange. I have to be honest I scribbled out the middle as it made me feel less embarrassed about my underwear being on the internet. It worked a charm, embarrassment… gone! I see these around a lot lately, people wearing low cut tops and the pretty design at the top being on display, however I can’t seem to find a top to work with it, any suggestions leave below! This bra needs to be worn. Oh yeah ¬£6, amazballs! 

Next is a Jeffree Star Liquid Lipstick in the colour Sagittarius. The people who come up with the names for these lip products are geniuses, I could never think of a name for every different lip shade. I could pretend that I brought this but I’m trying this thing where I’m completely honest, yeah my sister gave it too me – I can’t afford this stuff(yet). I love the colour it’s different, unique, beautiful.


Revolution palettes. These are amazing, such pretty colours. With the highligher and blush palette I get to look like a glitter bomb exploded on my face – never too much highlighter! With the contour palette I have one shade I adore, a contour shade that doesn’t make me look like a orange and who could want more than that. 

(I only showed the first palette on my hand as I only use one colour in the second which is the one on the second row third in, my lack of photography skills make it look darker than it is but I promise perfect shade!)


FAVOURITES OF JULY! 


I brought a DS, yes I know a little late to be getting on the trend however I love it! Zelda is my favourite at the moment however once I find Sims I will be unable to focus on anything other than. 


This is poppy, we have a love hate relationship. I am a vocalist but I also have vocal problems so when poppy comes out and I try to sing with her we eaither click instantly or fail greatly. We have been clicking lately however I see our relationship going south after rehearsals today. 


With college out of summer Netflix has become a daily thing. The Originals is my all time favourite for me personally it’s a better take of The Vampire Diaries and Klous is beautiful. Dexter is also a favourite at the moment, I’m also rewatching My Mad Fat Diary on more 4 which is brilliant!


Back to Primark for ¬£12, these shoes have been my holy grail for this month. I bloody love them, that’s all I can say plus the quality is insane for the price!

That’s all for now, comment below your favourites! 

 YVES Saint Laurent Le Teint Touché Eclat Foundation Review 

Hello beauties, today we are talking foundations. I haven’t done a review in ages, it’s well overdue -so here we go. The product I’m going be reviewing for you is the YVES Saint Laurent Le Teint Touch√© Eclat Foundation. I got given a sample at my local Boots store  which I was very exciting however I am very indecisive about this one, it has a lot of pros and cons. 


This is what the full bottle looks like, it retails at ¬£33.50 from Boots. 

It comes in a huge range of different colours for different skin tones 22 to be exact! The foundation claims to have coverage whilst feeling weightless, i can confirm It does feel very light on the skin however the coverage isn’t there for me. I love the dewy, radiant finish, it blends beautifully and effortlessly with a beauty blender, which is definitely a plus! I have noticed the little sample bottle has lasted 2 weeks longer than I was informed which is also a amazing benefit.

I must say this foundation doesn’t work on my skin type, I’m oily – this foundation slides off my face too quickly. I had a colour match in store then to find it oxidise’ on the skin. When I am having a bad skin day, which is a lot of the time. It clings to my acne and dry patches, it clumps and cakes around those areas which is not pleasant. However if I was having the once in a blue moon good skin day then I think the caking wouldn’t be there as it’s just smooth skin. 

Fashion and Lifestyle Haul 

Hello beauties, I’m excited for this one, today I have a well overdue haul! I went to Meadowhall shopping centre and picked up a few adorable things and thought I would share them with you.
Boyfriend Jeans (Primark ¬£15) 

I’ve been looking everywhere for a pair of boyfriend jeans that fit me perfectly. I struggle as they are a baggy fit so they need to be tight around the waist, I have a small waist so this is usually a stressful search. I found these in Primark and they are a perfect fit, I think they will look good with a black bodysuit or spaghetti strap tops in the summer. 


Art Therapy Books

I am obsessed with these colouring books at the moment, they are definitely therapeutic. I brought these from a store that was closing down, I can’t remember the name but there were ¬£1.50 each – incredible value. I have a lot of the movie art books however I always get nervous in case I mess them up as I’m known for clumsiness, I brought these so that I can be as clumsy as I like! 


Sports Bra (Primark ¬£5) 

I’ve been really getting into the gym lately – well I went twice however I thought i it’s time I got so proper gym gear. I love the colour of this top and the patten in the back. It’s perfect fit and nothing falls out which is a problem I tend to get. I love it.

Dungaree Dress (H&M £25)

I love this little black denim number, I see so many people wearing these lately. I think they look so cute with either crop tops or tight jumpers underneath. I’ve never owned anything like this, it’s definitely something new for me -it’s adorable.


Pillow (Disney Store £7)

This is for my niece I swear…. nope it’s mine. I love it, so cute, also really comfy! I just fell in love instantly it was a spontaneous buy.

Best and Worst of Movies in the Last 12 Months.

Hello beauties, movies are such a cosy thing. I love being all snuggled up in bed with a good movie. Today I’m going to talk you through my best and worst movies of the last 12 months. I hope you enjoy these movies as much as I did.


Favourites 

1.Bridget Jones Baby 

I always feel like Bridget Jones is such a feel good movie, I always without fail feel good after watching the move. Plus you get 5 minutes of Ed Sheehan which is amazing! 

2.Power Rangers 

I saw this with my partner as he wanted to see it, it was SO GOOD! The costumes, the cast the story line everything was brilliant.

3.Logan 
I’m not going to give anything away if you haven’t seen this already however it was a spectacular way to end the X Men movies. Emotional, heart warming – you see a different side of Logan. 

4.Suicide Squad

Harley Quinn is definitely something. I was never a fan of Cara Delevingne acting however she played the witch incredibly.

5.Moana 

I thought I wouldn’t like this, I was wrong. The chicken is my favourite character.

6.Beauty and the Beast 

I cried so much in the cinema, really tugs at the heart strings. I haven’t liked any of all the new Disney remakes so far, but Emma Watson played a stunning belle. 

Worst

1.Trolls

This film was such a disappointment, I wanted to love it but I couldn’t.

2.50 Shades Darker

The first film was incredible, it had a strong story line and the naughty scenes were not too much. In 50 Shades Darker, I struggled to work out the story line it was all a bit scattered. I worked out the story line as… talk, sex, talk, sex, talk, sex, gun, sex, talk, talk, sex, talk.

3.Sausage Party 

Horny food. That’s what this film is about 

What I Want to Achieve Before I’m 20

Hello beauties, today I am going to talk about my goals for the next two years. I’m one of those people that always put things off, I say to myself – I will just start next week. This goes on until I just end up achieving absolutely nothing. I thought I would write about my goals for my readers, this way I will be able to stay motivated to achieve more. 
To adopt a dog. Any dog, I just really would like to recuse a dog. 
Rent a bungalow with my partner, a house would be too scary when I’m home alone.

Start the gym at some point, any point! I’m sure it can be dome in the two years in giving myself haha.

Go on a boat, I really like boats. 
Meet a monkey, I adore monkeys however I’ve never seen one.

Start a YouTube channel ūüôā 

To complete my level 3 qualification in business with a triple distinction. I love business, I know tad boring but I really enjoy it. 

Go to university to study criminology. 

Reach 700 followers on my blog, I love blogging so much. 

Skydive-original I know.

Life From My Cats Perspective 

Hello beauties, today I’m doing something a little different. I have a strange little cat, I thought I would let him share his Monday with you. 
I’m Biggie.

I must say my favourite thing to do first thing in the morning is meow, I love singing a good song outside my owners doors until they let me inside their bedroom for a cuddle. However I tend to get distracted and chew things on the way, mostly wires, cables they don’t look important -I’m sure it’s okaay. This is my favourite ‘do you have any food’ look, it works most the time- I’m defiantly a charmer.

I love food, most of my day consists of meowing for food, stealing my family’s food, I especially love porridge, I shouldn’t I know but I love it, sometimes I even love to wear it on my head, it’s truly a statement piece, all the cats in the village will be jealous – top designers, hit me up! So this is me posing, I am a little annoyed as she didn’t get the right angle to show my best features-this will do…I suppose. In this next photo, I don’t know what this is, but it’s so tasty. I love this photo of me, it shows me in my element.

I found this today, hmm what is it? I will teach you to mess with me you squishy thing. Everyone was staring at me doing this, I think they were impressed by my bravery. 

‚Äč‚Äč

Oh no I got caught! Can never get any privacy. Maybe they didn’t see. I see how it is, whenever I want to join them in the bath it’s a big no no, however they walk in on me.

Best of Netflix!

Hello beauties, I’m a bit of a Netflix lover. I like to binge watch shows in one day because I have to know what happens next. If you enjoy your Netflix’s as much as I do then settle down to read this post as their is some amazing shows on my list.

1. Series of Unfortunate Events

This series is is based off a popular book series ‘Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events’. It tells the story of 3 children that lose their parents in a fire and Count Olaf is trying to steal their enormous fortune. 

2. The Missing

This one is my favourite. I haven’t watched season 1 only season 2 I don’t think they are linked as nothing was confusing. The show is about a girl called Alice who went missing when she was young, Alice turns up out of nowhere and the storyline is figuring out what happened to her. It’s full of unexpected twists and turns and nothing is ever as it seems. Definitely one to watch if you love a good mystery. 

3. 13 Reasons Why

Now this is a new show that a managed to binge watch in one day, it unravels the story of why a young girl committed suicide, she left tapes and each tape tells a part of the story. Again this is one of those story’s where everything starts coming together towards the end, it keeps you guessing. Its definitely worth watching, I was not disappointed. 

4. Orange is the New Black

Now I know a lot of people disliked this show, a lot of people told me I wouldn’t like it. Well… I loved it!! It follows a female prison and a women called Piper who is put in jail for a year however she doesn’t think she is cut out for it. It’s very entertaining, the prison gossip is hilarious. 

5. Scream

If you love the movies, you will love this. I feel the series is better than the movies, the killer is a lot more realistic and the story goes into a lot more depth than the movies. With the movies I found I knew who the killer was half way though, I didn’t know with this show – I really didn’t! Very twisty story with a lot of unexpected shocks. Brilliant.

These are my favourite shows, let me know yours in the comments I would love to hear what your favourite Netflix shows are‚̧

What’s In My Bag¬†

Hello beauties, today I am going to share… What’s In My Bag. I love being nosey and reading these posts. I hope you enjoy 


This Bag is from Topshop, it was ¬£42 and I love it! I needed a Bag that zipped at the top as my current bag didn’t, when it rained I had issues with soggy coursework as you can imagine. This Bag is still in store now 


This is what’s In my bag,

I carry my Ted Baker makeup bag with all the makeup in wearing that day, I tried only being a few essentials however the products I didn’t bring would mess up on my face during the day. Just my luck!

My glasses, I brought Cosmopolitan glasses as I am awful for wearing them, designer glasses are motivating. 

Sure deo, so I can stay fresh thoughtout the day.

GHOST perfume mini, minis are my favourite to take out and about as they don’t take up a lot of space. This is one of my favourite scents ever! 

Gum, I have bubblegum flavour. Yummm

Mini hairbrush, I have bangs so it’s needed constantly. 

Keys, for the obvious reason of being able to get into my house.

Hair tie and clip as I always need one when I don’t have one.

My purse has my life in it, cards, cash, passport all the things I need. My purse has seen better days it’s looking a bit old. 

Earphones, to cancel out the noisy people on the bus and to listen to my favourite tunes.
