My 5 Turn Ons! + Celeb Crushes (Get To Know Me Series)

Image
I'm super fussy with guys and I am very particular with who I find handsome immediately. So here are probably the only celebrities I think are outright hot! In order: Alex Pettyfer, Channing Tatum, Zac Efron, Chad Michael Murray and Jenson Button. 


But honestly, hands down, I very rarely find myself attracted to someone purely based on looks, if ever. Yes I may find them hot but I have to get to know them first.
Here are my top 5 turn ons before the relationship's even left the starting blocks. 
Communication - I like to be able to talk to them and have a conversation. They have to be able to hold a conversation and be intellectually stimulating. If we can't talk about things together well what's the basis of the relationship. A two sided conversation where each plays an active, interested role. Chivalry - I am defintely old school when it comes to manners. I like a respectable guy who doesn't swear every other sentence, who opens doors, who says please and thank y…

The Finest Hours (Review)

Image
For those who haven't watched the trailer have a look here.

I was first introduced to this film not through the trailer but through an American YouTuber names CarlieStylez (Carlie Wood nee Butler). She was invited by Disney for a day's training with the coast guard. Both her and her new husband are very much interested in fitness and health and wellbeing so it was the perfect advertisement for them. Click here to see the video.

So after watching that, I was intrigued but not amazed. My dad was the one who really wanted to see the movie and so I happily obliged.

In the winter of 1952, New England was battered by the most brutal storm in years. As the weather wreaked havoc on land, the freezing Atlantic became a graveyard.

In the early hours, while the storm raged, two oil tankers, the Pendleton and the Fort Mercer, found themselves in the same horrifying predicament. Built with "dirty steel," and not prepared to withstand such ferocious seas, both tankers split in two…

'What I Ate' Wednesday!

Image
So this post is inspired by Anna Saccone of Saccone-Joly's on YouTube who also has her own channel Anna Saccone and blog. She does a What I Ate Wednesday every week and while I personally don't find it very interesting I know a lot of people do. I think it's interesting once in awhile to see a normal day or what she eats when she goes out, for example, but most weeks it's the exact same thing or at least very similar.

I definitely won't be doing one of these posts every week as I probably have maybe 10 days worth of food on rotation and honestly, I would be bored writing it up. But I did think it would be interesting to show you guys what a typical day of food looks like for me.

Breakfast
For breakfast this morning I had a strawberry and banana smoothie. Now sometimes I pour the smoothie into a cute mug I have but most the time I just drink it straight from the blender cup. I was going to for the sake of a picture but I thought I would be completely real and honest…

"Shine Bright Like a Diamond" February Birchbox: Unboxing and Review

Image
I really wasn't happy with the delivery service of Birchbox this month. I didn't get the box until well after it was due, over 2 weeks later. I posted a picture on Instagram  in the hopes of winning the highly coveted and beautiful diamond necklace. 
 Hence the name of this month's box 'Shine Bright Like a Diamond'. See what they did? ;)
I was so happy to discover I had received the purple box as there were 3 designs this month with blue, pink and purple stripes, but my favourite colour is purple! So onto the box!   And the products! Honestly, I'm not a fan of leave in conditioners because it leaves my hair feeling greasy and I try to limit product use. For the price of this, I will definitely not be purchasing it. The smell reminds me of swimming pool chlorine and the bottle didn't spray very well at all. It left my hair feeling sticky to touch.
 I only recently purchased a red nail varnish and so I wasn't particularly a fan of this colour, in 'La…

#JuniorContracts πŸš‘

Image
My opinion on the junior contracts initiated by Jeremy Hunt, from the perspective of a first year medical student.

Background
For those who don't live in the UK, you probably won't know but for those that do, you should.

In recent years our healthcare system system, the National Health Service (NHS) has come under threat and the latest in this story is the junior contracts.

These are the contracts which regulate the junior doctors that work in the NHS, from hours to pay. From the moment the changes were initially announced, the BMA has been fighting back against the government, especially Health Secretary, Jeremy Hunt. After a failing of negotiations and plans still to go ahead, junior doctors, together with the BMA decided to hold strike action on multiple dates, to try and get the message across to the public and government alike.

What a lot of people don't seem to understand is that junior doctors aren't just medics who have recently graduated, but it also includes t…

Laser Team - YouTube Red Original Movie (Review)

Image
Lazer Team is the first film produced by YouTube Red, a new paid subscription service offered by YouTube to internet users. I found this movie while searching for new movie trailers releasing soon.

Click to watch the trailer below.
Long ago, the army was sent a message from an alien species that told them a war was coming to Earth and they must train up a soilder to be ready for the fight. Being the supposed kind aliens they offer help in the form of a suit set to be delivered just in time. The army go ahead an select a baby to be raised in the army for this sole purpose. Adam, played by Ritchson, is the perfect example of a soldier with smouldering looks and sacrificial determination; he also starred as Gloss in 2013's The Hunger Games: Catching Fire so he'd already played a similar character.

The film begins with a cocky teenage jerk who’s angry at the world winning an American football game only to be arrested after causing trouble at a party by a police officer,  and fath…

Dirty Grandpa (Review)

Image
Any movie with Zac Efron in is a must see for me. Click below to watch the trailer: The movie begins somewhat abruptly with the family meeting up at someone's house to celebrate the life of Jason's (Zac Efron) grandmother. At the funeral the comedy starts immediately with Meredith (Julianne Hough) talking wedding details at the church service. I just wanted to scream at her to shut up. 
Jason is tricked by his grandfather to go on a roadtrip together to where the couple used to vacation every year, to the horror of his fiancΓ©e. With just a week before his wedding, Jason takes his grandfather on the road trip of his uptight, straight-A student life. But it becomes horribly clear that the old guy is now an outrageous born-again bachelor who yearns to make it with bikini-clad women there on Daytona Beach for spring break. 
It should have been abundantly clear straight away that this was the case after walking in on him doing a 'number 3' to porn. 
Shockingly fit, grandpa…

Valentine's Day: 15 Last Minute Gifts For Everyone!

Image
If you haven't read my last two posts click here to see my Crafts and DIY Decor ideas. It's Valentine's Day weekend and just 2 days left until the day itself! I thought for today's post it would be a good idea to show some last minute gift ideas for both friends and that 'special one'. I love how simple and easy some of these are and you can literally pick these up on the way home from a local shop if you haven't got anything yet!
Disclaimer: I've found all these ideas on Pinterest but I also remember doing them myself when I was younger.

I have included links to the original posts but I also found it very annoying when I would go on Pinterest and then that post would take me to another and another and then finally the original with the actual instructions. So while you can have a look at the original posts, you don't need to click on them to be able to do the activity, unless you want more detail.

I've tried to include a few gifts for everyone…
