VALENTINES DAY TAG QUESTIONS

Hey guys! So today I today I finally departed from my beloved other half (haha) and I decided I wanted to 'sum up' my valentines weekend. I just want to say that my boyfriend and I had already decided that we didn't particularly want to go out or spend a lot of money on one another as I was very spoiled for Christmas and my birthday, so I just felt it wasn't really fair on him. Either way my valentines weekend was lovely and it just goes to show that you don't have to spend a bomb on your other half to have a nice time!

1. What was your favorite Valentines Day treat?
  got some popcorn to try in my new popcorn machine and it tastes so good!

2. Sweethearts or chocolate covered strawberries? 
Chocolate covered strawberries!

3. What is your favorite Valentines Day memory?
 Definitely losing my Nando's virginity! YES, I went to Nando's for the first time with my friends and I have to say, I was seriously impressed!

4. What movie would you rather watch on Valentines Day: Pretty Woman or You've Got Mail?
 I haven't seen either... though I did buy and watch The Inbetweeners 2 with my boyfriend?

5. What celeb would you not mind having as your Valentine? 
OK, so I know I'm only 16 but honestly, since watching 'The Wolf of Wall Street' I've been seriously crushing Leonardo Dicaprio.. If he's 40, I'm 40.

6. What would you do on your perfect Valentine's date?
 I would consider my Valentines day this year to be pretty perfect so just chilling at home, watching movies with my boyfriend, before meeting friends to go for a meal - that makes me sound so unromantic, sorry!

7. Red or pink lips on Valentines Day?
 Red, unless you're eating out, that's just a recipe for disaster haha!

8. What is your ideal Valentines Day date outfit?
 For the more 'casual date' like the one I went on, I wore my disco pants, high-necked stripey vest, Chelsea boots and fur coat.

9. Homemade or store-bought gifts?
 I'm a massive fan of homemade gifts but store-bought are also very sweet!

10. Would you wear your hair up or hair down for a date night? 
Hair down!

URBAN DECAY NAKED 3 REVIEW



I just want to start by saying that I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this palette! Having green eyes it's my holy grail makeup item! If I had enough time before school I'd definitely wear an eye-shadow look from this palette everyday, especially as the colours range from a more natural selection to a far darker, smokier selection. From the swatches I'm sure you can see for yourself just how pigmented the colours are - they're simply beautiful! Although I haven't featured the brush that comes with the palette in this blog post, I'd also like to point out that the brush itself is actually quite good, unlike the cheap plasticky things that come with other makeup items. I know the palette is fairly pricey but I can't say enough good things about it: my eye-shadow stays on all day and the looks you can create with the colours are endless! I recommend this palette to anybody, especially if you have green eyes as I feel the pink and gold tones will look particularly nice! The only thing I would say is, if you're into wearing a natural smoky eye everyday then I would recommend maybe trying either the Urban Decay Naked or Naked 2 palette first, as they don't have as many pink tones meaning you can create more natural looks for everyday wear. Although I haven't tried the 1st or 2nd palette myself I do know that the original palette has more warmer tones compared to the 2nd palette having more cooler tones, so I guess it's all down to personal preference.Anyway, this palette is utterly beautiful and perfect for daytime, night-time, winter, summer - it's just perfect for anything and anywhere! To avoid any confusion, I'm not getting paid to review this product and these are all my own thoughts - I would never lie about how I felt about a product!

IT'S NOMINATION TIME

Sooo, I've been nominated for the 'Versitile Blogger Award' and the 'Liebster Award' by Petek Celik (whose blog is one of my favourites).



For each of the awards you have to nominate your favourite bloggers to answer a set of questions. However I unfortunately don't know a great deal of bloggers yet (boo) so I'm tagging anyone who reads this! For the 'Liebster Award' you just have to answer a set of questions asked by the person who tagged you, so I'll leave a set of questions at the end of this post for anybody to answer!



The "Versitle Blogger Award" is more open, meaning I can choose 7 facts to share about myself, so...

1
 I'm taking 20 exams in 3 months time, and with the exception of 2/3 I'm predicted an a/a* in them all (which I'm abound by, but also very proud of!)

2
 I grew my hair half way down my back before having it cut above my shoulders (oh, and it's currently dip-dyed purple!)

3
 I have 6 piercings (excluding lobes) but I plan to get more! I also want to write a blog post on them soon.

4
 I've had a bottom brace for 2 years 2 months and a top brace for 1 year 6 months. I've also had a two hour operation on my teeth & gums which involved... don't worry I'll spare you the details haha!

5
 I completely love Buddhas and actually went through a stage of 'being Buddhist' and although I still believe in some of the Buddhist beliefs, it wasn't for me...

6
 I always wanted a brother/sister when growing up, but my mum couldn't have children (I was a miracle baby haha) but I remember wishing for a sister one birthday as I blew out the candles on my cake and to everyone's surprise my mum got pregnant when I was 10. I now have a little sister.

7
 I used to be OBSESSED with One Direction, to the point where I pretended to be married to Niall Horan. CRINGE!




For the 'Liebster Award' I was tagged to answer these questions...


1) What makes you smile most?
My boyfriend. I openly admit he's my best friend so he makes me happy & I can tell him anything. I don't think there's anything more satisfying than knowing you can tell that one person anything you want to. 

2) Favourite singer/band?
I guess The Weeknd or Drake when I'm in the mood? But I prefer listening to individual songs than artists, if that makes sense?

3) What's the one food you can't live without?
Easy, chocolate.

4) Next planned destination
I know I'm going Cornwall in the summer, but I recently found out that I'm going to the Canary Islands (or somewhere thereabouts) next Easter!

5) Favourite blogger/Youtuber
I've loved Zoella for as long as I can remember, however I am really in love with TrueBeutie; her videos are flawless and she puts so much effort in!

6) Ben & Jerry's or Haagen Dazs?
100% Ben & Jerry's!

7) Favourite hair care brand?
I've never really been 'in to' hair care etc. but I can't go without my Batiste dry shampoo. Also, I've just brought the L'oreal Elvive thickening products so things could change.

8) Your go-to makeup item?
Collect Lasting Perfection Concealer. It's so ard to get your hands on but it's so, so good!

9) Snapchat or Instagram?
Instagram! Instagram! Instagram! Instagram! Instagram! Instagram! Instagram! Instagram! 

10) Where do you get your style/fashion interests from?
I just tend to buy and wear what I like, though I have seen and loved various outfits that Tanya Burr has thrown together.

11) Plane journeys or car journeys?
Late night car journeys are my guilty pleasure.
