I'VE BEEN BANNED FROM TESCO'S (Story Time)

“Yesterday I was at my local Tesco's store buying a large bag of My Dog dog food for my loyal pet and was in the checkout queue when a woman behind me asked if I had a dog.
What did she think I had an elephant? So, since I'm retired and have little to do, on impulse I told her that no, I didn't have a dog, I was starting the Dog Diet again. I added that I probably shouldn’t, because I ended up in hospital last time, but I'd lost 10 kilograms before I woke up in intensive care with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms.
I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way that it works is to load your pockets with My Dog nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete so it works well and I was going to try it again. (I have to mention here that practically everyone in queue was now enthralled with my story.)
Horrified, she asked me if I ended up in intensive care because the dog food poi…

University Room Tour!

Image
I'm finally getting around to posting my room tour. I moved into my new home just over a month ago now and while I settled in quite quickly, I decided to save this post until I had a slow week. Hence the delay.

I have kept my room fairly simple and I'm sure you'll find it a little familiar as I've used almost the exact same things I have for the last 3 years. Here's my second year and third year accommodation. 
I personally don't see the point in spending money on things that are already available for free so I kept my plain white sheets from my childhood single bed and used decorative pillows to add a little colour. One of my favourite finds of university is Command strips and hooks. I use them for EVERYTHING! They are the best because they are so versatile and don't leave any marks. 
 In terms of pictures I used my previously printed photographs from Photobox and Freeprints. Pictures are a great way to add col…

Fifty Shades Freed (Review)

Image
I'm not going to lie, I'm kind of devastated the Fifty Shades trilogy is over. After reading the books, I was so excited I got to relive moments on screen with a stunning cast. Watching Fifty Shades of Grey was eye-opening and having it followed by Fifty Shades Darker was intense. I went to see Fifty Shades Freed on opening night and let's just say I was emotional.

I have to say, I was really impressed with the very beginning few scenes of the film. Despite missing out a few parts from the book, the film quickly starts with the wedding and while short and sweet, it was very beautifully shot. Then the honeymoon sequence blew me away.

Some of my favourite memories of the books come from the moments while Ana and Christian are on their honeymoon. While I am disappointed not to see them all translate to the big screen, I do think that it was a very clever way to get in so many beautiful locations and moments in such a short space …

Being a YouTuber: 5 Things I Love and 5 Things I Hate

Image
I've had my blog and YouTube channel for almost 5 years now and while I wouldn't class myself as anything huge, I've recently been introduced to the term micro-influencer which I love. In some small ways, I've heard from readers and viewers that the content I have put out there has helped them. I can't tell you how happy that makes me. Of course, with the good, comes the bad and that's what this post is about.

I've teamed up with Aliesha Wyatt to give you an insight into life as a small YouTuber. She shares her 5 favourite and 5 least favourite things about her channel. Self described as a shy girl who really enjoys sharing her life with a bunch of strangers online. She has very recently started focusing on blogging, vlogging, and content creating.

Farm Life Animals and Family Farewell!

A quick trip home called for visiting the farm animals and saying farewell to my cousin as she embarks on her 3 month trip around India.

It's crazy how much my life has changed since I signed up to be a distributor. I used to only take selfies when I went out for a special occasion but I kind of love that I have a photo of almost every single day. Despite these two looking like they're from the same day, they're actually from 2 separate days and I'm wearing Napa and Apple Cider LipSense respectively. Both beautiful colours and both from my first purchase!  I have always loved living on a farm but it's not until I moved to London that I truly appreciated it. I think it's amazing to have so much space surrounding my home and even more so, to have animals all around.
Of course, the horses are my favourite and having 2 out of 3 of the remaining herd back home has been amazing. They're seriously so sweet and playful. I …

The Maze Runner: The Death Cure (Review)

Image
The final instalment of The Maze Runner trilogy has finally been released at a somewhat delayed schedule, thanks to injuries during filming. The first film was absolutely amazing! I was obsessed and watched it every day for a week. The Scorch Trials was a disappointing sequel in comparison but nevertheless  I was so excited to see the third!

Click here to watch the trailer or see below.
I think the film begins perfectly and picks up right where The Scorch Trials finishes. I love when films do that because I think it really is such a good beginning. I always tend to re-watch the movies that have been released in the series prior to watching the new films so I personally love it when you don't have to go through a torturous recap in order to understand them. Having said that, it does mean you can't jump into the franchise for the third film alone. It would make NO sense!
Despite that, one of the things I love about The Maze Runner is that they always start the films with incred…

Marc Jacobs Gel Highliners (Review) - Influenster VoxBox

Image
At the end of last year I shared all about Influenster. I absolutely love the company and they basically provide you with complimentary products in exchange for social media promotion and reviews. My last VoxBox was a Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara which I loved but this month I received a couple of Marc Jacobs Matte Highliner Gel Eye Crayon. I received these in 2 colours: Deja Blue and Pink of Me.

Colour life with all the crayons in the box.

Inspired by Marc's boldly bright resort 2017 collection, embracing the freewheeling '80s and MTV kids, this new expression of Highliner delivers high-impact colour for exuberant new eye looks.

Now the intense pigment payoff and amazing glide of original bestselling Highliner comes in a new matte finish. The formula's pure hues are glitter-free, intensified by super-rich pigment. The malleable formula glides on smoothly for precise application, then sets in place for all-day wear.

The colours are simply beautiful. I&#…
