5 Photos that make me happy ♥

Good morning class,

I was tagged to do this post by my wonderful friend and fellow admin over on Girl Related Jordanne who also runs the AMAZING blog A Little Pinch of Wonder

I’m going to tag Beauty and the Mechanic, and a new friend Katie from Plus+ Beauty .

Basically, I’m going to have a wee look through my old photo albums and post 5 pictures that make me happy and tell you why 🙂



The first photo I chose is literally the first photo Tom and I ever took together and I am pretty sure this was taken on the first or second day we met. (Long story, if you want me to post about how we met then let me know in the comments below – it’s pretty cute!). Anyway I love it because I still feel just as happy, if not happier than I look in this photo 5 years later ♥♥

The Liebster Award ♥

Liebster Award

Good morning class,

Oooh I haven’t won an award for a long time… even if it’s not a ‘proper’ award, it still says award in the title so I’m gonna claim it! I feel so happy that somebody is not only reading my blog but enjoying it enough to want to find out more about me! So sweet 🙂

I was nominated by one of my favourite bloggers whom I’ve met on WordPress of all the places! She’s not only obsessed with beauty but she’s also Motorsports Engineering Student! I love that she mixes in a little of her career/other passions in with her blogging about beauty just like I do. Check her out on Beauty and the Mechanic (bit of a Disney reference there – I like it!)

Anyway she’s given me some rules so here they are;

First, you mention the person who nominated you on your blog and link them in.

Answer the 11 questions that you were asked when nominated.

Nominate 5 – 11 other bloggers (with less than 200 followers) and link them below.

Create 11 questions for them to answer and let them know that you have nominated them!


This is what she asked me;

  1. What is at the top of your Bucket List 

I thought about this for about one second and aside from getting married and having a baby it’s 100% going to Disneyland. I’ve always wanted to go, I love Disney, I love lands, I love everything about Disneyland. Plus I’d totally go to the Florida one and then I could go shopping and get lots of cheap makeup 🙂 Win/win

2. Where in the world (or not, space counts too!) – Universe? – would you most want to visit?

Okay this one’s hard because I want to go to America, also Thailand, but I feel like I will go to those places. So then I should think about somewhere I might never go to but I really want to go to if that makes sense? In that case, I choose Greece/Rome. I took Classics at school for two years and absolutely loved it. It fascinates me! I want to look at all the architecture!

February Wish List ♥

Good afternoon class,

Today I thought I’d compile a list of all the things I want in February (hopefully you’ll see some of these products in haul posts coming soon). For a start I feel like it’s good getting them down in writing so that I don’t forget and buy something completely unnecessary. Secondly, I personally find these posts inspirational (hehe) and they help me remember things I have that I’ve forgotten about or things that I didn’t know I needed. Without further ado – here goes.

Stila Stay All Day foundation & concealer in Bare ($61.45)

I have been lusting after this mysterious product ever since it started becoming talked about. I say mysterious because the reviews I’ve heard are mixed… however I want it all the same. I worked out my shade on www.findation.com and decided that I straight up needed this product.  Anything that says it’s going to “stay all day” is something I need on my face. At school it’s so hard to keep your makeup looking perfect because you’re dealing with a hot classroom, grumpy kids, high stress (at times), lots of movement and I’m always touching my face!! I’ve been eyeing up this product on ASOS and it was on special last week! But I’d already spent my money on other things (haul coming soon). I also love the idea of having a concealer in the lid of the product – how cute is that?! Would be handy to keep in my desk at school. Continue reading
