Last Week of Placement, Emotions and Laughter!

Image
So many emotions this week! Laughter, anger, sadness and joy!  Click here to watch the vlog or see the video below.  As I came into the flat from a 5-day trip travelling the country, I returned to a fly infestation. It was all fun and games until anyone wanted to use the bin. Long story short, but I took the bins out just before I left and so I refused to take them out again as I hadn't been here. Maybe petty but by this point it was the simple ethics of it.

Anyway, Clare was hilarious when she found a video article online saying flies were common in house plants so she decided at 11pm at night to get rid of ALL the house plants. I'm sure to most people she looked like a mad woman but I thought it was hilarious and given the fact I'd had a disaster with the washing machines - AGAIN! - I was fuming.

To top the night off, I dropped my glass all over my bedroom carpet. Luckily, it was empty but still, it was the first thing I'd broken in 4 years!
A few days later, Sam ch…

Random Facts about Me!

Image
The latest TAG that I've been tagged in is the Random Facts About Me! Kristine tagged me a few weeks ago and I'm only now getting chance to write it up. I loved reading and finding out some random facts about her, so I was so excited to be tagged to do my own. Be sure to check out her responses and keep reading to find out more about me.

When was the last time you cried?
When was the last time I watched a soppy movie? I cry all the time I swear.

If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
Haha depends on the person. I think I'm kind and caring and loyal and honest but I'm defintely not the easiest person to get on with at times.

Do you use sarcasm a lot?
Yes all the time!

What’s the first thing you notice about people?
Their smile. I love surrounding myself with positive people and a smile can be welcoming and show a lot about them.

Scary movie or happy endings?
Definitely happy endings.

Favourite smells?
Anything citrus. I hate floral scents!

What’s the f…

New Series Announcement - TAGs!

Image
Not expecting to see this post right?

I don't normally post on a Saturday, let alone 9am!

Summer is a crazy time for bloggers. With so many companies reaching out for collaborations and many bloggers having extra time to write posts, there's just too many posts to schedule so for at least the month August (but starting tonight!), I will be upping my schedule to include TAG Sunday's!

You can learn a little more about me but also see some other posts from some amazing friends and fellow bloggers too.

Stay tuned for tonight. I can't wait to share them all with you.

Project Mc² Ultimate Spy Bag (Review)

Image
Project Mc² is a Netflix Original TV show based on teenage spy McKeyla, who teams up with three other super-smart girls to become secret agents who use their science and tech skills to save the day. I love that the show stands for girls using their brains to do something good. It's such a great message for young girls and I'm more than happy for my niece to watch it!

The franchise have developed multiple unique gifts which closely resemble items used in the show itself. Today I'm reviewing one of their biggest products, the Project Mc² Ultimate Spy Bag which retails for £39.99 so it is quite a pricey item but makes the perfect birthday or even Christmas gift.
The product is made of really sturdy, thick and high quality plastic. It's hefty and quite chunky so it does have quite a bit of weight to it. It does long like a handbag on the outside, but it will be tricky to use in reality because of it's bulk. However, on the positive side, that means that it is going to …

4 Cities in 4 Days: OOTD!

Image
A couple of week's ago now, I headed away for 5 days and went to 4 cities in 4 days. It was all a little crazy but with such gorgeous weather, I thought I would share what I wore!

Day 1 - Nottingham
I wore Dorothy Perkins long Denim Shorts in blue, paired with a now super old Dorothy Perkins loose tee and because I'd just finished a night shift, I felt a little cool so wore one of my favourite Cashmere cardigan. This summer I'm living in my black FitFlop sandal.

Day 2 - Wales
Celebrating my nephew's birthday called for a party outfit. As a fun, one year old's party, I thought my Simply Be Spotty Dress from Louise Pentland's Glitter Clothes collection was perfect, paired with my hot pink sandals. Originally, I was going to wear my white wedges but with running after kids, I decided against it.

Day 3 - Stevenage
I was reminded for a few days what I wore because I ended up getting the strangest tan lines. I paired my White Linen Cropped trousers with a Black Cami …

150th Great Yorkshire Show 2018!

Image
In my 22 years, I've missed 2 Great Yorkshire Show's. Last year I was lucky enough to go for all3 days but this year, just 1. What a special year, celebrating 160 years!

Click here to watch the vlog or see below.

Like every year, I try to go as much as possible. There was a short time, this year, when I thought I wouldn't get to go but amazingly, we had two SDL days in a row so I managed to get home and spend the first two days at the Great Yorkshire Show. A few years ago, I managed to go to all 3 days and I absolutely loved it! See all the vlogs from then here (Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3) or even watch a flashback video from 2014!
One of my favourite things about the GYS is all the animals. I love seeing their displays and them turned out for their competitions. The best thing is that the time of year means that many of the animals have babies because it's just after Spring...especially the cows!

My mum and I both love watched the horses in Showjumping. Up until a few ye…

Wingz (Review)

Image
Wingz is a company I came across very recently and I fell in love with the concept. They are not a bra or lingerie, but they aren’t a top or outerwear either. The product is simple. It's a piece of fabric, that has a band which goes under your bust. With a variety of sleeve lengths, you can select the perfect type for you: capped, half and full-length.

Apparently, it can seem a little bit confusing on how to put them on at first so have a little watch on this video if you're confused but I think they are a really clever and unique product but very simply and easy. You simply put on over your bra but underneath your top.

It can turn any sleeveless top or dress into a great choice for so many reasons. Many women feel uncomfortable showing the tops of their arms, whether that be because of fat, the jiggle of "bingo-wings" or the fact they have uncomfortable marks. I have a number of friends and family members who prefer not to show their upper arms, including my mother …

The Incredibles 2 (Review)

Image
The Incredibles 2 is a film many of us have been waiting for years to be released. I remember going to the cinema to see the first and loving every second. It quickly became one of my firm favourites but it wasn't until a second was announced that I re-watched it and became obsessed all over again.

Click here to watch the trailer or see below.
It may be 14 years later for us but for the Parr family, the film picks up exactly where the last one finished. To the second. I loved it! I love that it starts exactly where the last one ended and it remains the exact same types of graphics and the same voices. Interestingly, it doesn't exactly show the story in the same way and instead it's from the perspective of Violet's love interest.
Since the first one was released, the superhero genre has now been massively over written but The Incredibles manages to keep it fresh with digital animation. I think this unique take on the craze is actually really refreshing and makes it all…
