Got To Be Good Lookin, He Just Do What He Please

I'm very much of the opinion that music makes the world a much better place to live in, as not only does it lift spirits but gives everyone a common ground.

With that in mind, this post is basically gonna be me rambling about five songs that I'm in love/obsessed with at the moment!

Daft Punk (feat. Pharrell and Nile Rodgers) - Get Lucky

OH MY GOD THIS SONG IS FUNKTASTIC. Like seriously. Nile Rodgers makes this song what it is. If you don't know who he is, go look him up, I guarantee you'll know at least one of his songs! Pharrell, too is pretty fantastic and this is pretty much one of the best things he's done in the last few years. And Daft Punk. Well, what a bloody surprise! Just amazing!

Vampire Weekend - Diane Young

Vampire Weekend have the knack of releasing brilliant songs just before summer, and this is definitely no exception. I really can't fault this song at all, and I'm stupidly excited for their album to come out!!

Haim - Falling

These girls own my heart. I love them. I love the breathiness of the vocal and the overall way the song is put together. MORE OF THIS PLZ GUYZ. thnx.

The Black Keys - Sinister Kid

Oh my. This is a relatively old song for these guys but it's one of my all time favourites from them. It has more kick to it than a vindaloo. In my opinion, if anyone doesn't like Dan Auerbach's voice then they have no soul!

Iggy Azalea - Work

OOOOH what a marmite song this is! The general consensus among my friends is that half love it and half hate it. I, obviously, am on the love team for this song. I don't quite know why I love it, but I've been blaring it from my car ever since I downloaded it, and I'm not about to stop now!

See you next time :)

Pucker Up For Heavens Sake, There's Never Been So Much At Stake


Today's blog is me somewhat confronting my hoarding for certain things..

There's a stupid amount of things that I hoard, including train tickets, spoons (don't ask..), things relating to birds and bird cages, and empty perfume bottles.

However to limit the amount of crazy in this post I'll just go into detail about four of them..

Empty glass bottles

To be perfectly honest, I have no idea why I feel the need to keep empty glass bottles.. I always have done and they only go when my mum barges in and takes them away, which usually results in me not talking to her for a couple of hours.. I would just like to point out that the three bottles in the picture (there are more hiding around my room) are all a brand of cider called Rekorderlig. If you haven't tried them then GET ON IT!! They don't taste like normal cider, they're so fruity and light, it's ridiculous how fast I can get through a bottle! 


So I have 9 pairs of sunglasses (and another pair on the way..). No, a normal person doesn't need this many pairs of sunglasses. I know that I definitely need two, a prescription pair and a normal pair. But 9? Nah. There are three pairs of Ray Bans in there so you can guess how much I've spent on sunglasses over the last three years...


Now this one genuinely baffles me. There are 9 (and probably more hidden away) lipsticks in my possession. Do I wear them? No. The only time I would wear lipstick is on a night out, and even then I favour a stain/balm over a stick or a gloss. I should really stop buying them but they're just so pretty it's hard to say goodbye!


All aboard the crazy train! Seriously, again, no idea why I need so many pencils. The ones in the picture are only about half of the amount I have, and they're not even colouring pencils..they're normal HB! When I was at school I was all over stationary and was pretty obsessed with having new pens, pencils, pencil cases etc so it's probably stuck from there. Even now at uni, when I only really need a pen if I don't have my laptop, I still buy a new pencil case every year and make sure it's stocked up!

So that's enough crazy for one day...

See you next time :)

Things That Feel Good Are Things That Don't Last

First of all, Happy belated Easter!

Hope you all had a good weekend. Mine was great, especially with it being kicked off on Good Friday with a trip to Southampton with two of my friends for a day of shopping.

This post is mostly a haul of everything as well as a few product reviews.


Seeing as I practically live in Boots it seemed like a good place to start with the reviews. Once again, I took advantage of their current 3 for 2 offer but surprisingly not on nail polish! The three items that I got were...


Maybelline Rocket Volum' Express Mascara

I have to say, I am in love with this mascara. I never really used to be a massive fan of mascara, as I have quite long eyelashes naturally. However, unlike other mascara's I have, this one glides on with total ease and doesn't clump at all.

Rocket Volum' Mascara used on top lashes. Maybelline The Colossal Volum' Express used on bottom lashes.


I got bought a couple of these by my friends while they were out in America over the New Year and I've fallen head over heels for them! When I saw this colour I knew I just had to get it. When they say it lasts for 24 hours, it really does. At no point during the day do I have to sneak off and touch it up and it's a great colour to wear for a natural day-to-day look. The picture above of me wearing the Maybelline Rocket Volum' Mascara also shows me wearing Pink Gold, blended with Bad To The Bronze in the outer corner.


Boots Seventeen Berry Crush Lipstain. I can't remember what shade it is I bought but judging by the colours on the website I think it's Cherry Berry.

This is a product that I'll definitely be wearing on nights out. I love the colour and adore that it comes with a balm to set in the colour.


Normally, I detest the idea of going into a Primark. I'd rather buy slightly more expensive, good quality clothes instead of getting a cheap fix. However on this trip I found quite a few items that I really liked from the word go.


I won't lie, if I could live in Ikea, I probably would. In the case of a zombie apocalypse it's probably the first place I'd try to get to, even though the nearest one to me is about 35 miles away.

So that's everything!

See you next time :)
