Weekend Wax- Yankee Meyler Lemon

Hi Guys
I have decided that every weekend I am going to post about what candle I have been burning that week. I burn candles when I am doing uni work because it seems to relax me so much and means I actually get something done instead of stressing about how much work I have to do. 
This week I have been burning the Yankee Candle Meyer Lemon now this scent was release way back in Spring 2012 which means that now it has been discontinued from Yankee shop but is still available online from other retailers. The sampler holder which I have is actually from Yankee as well it is available here I think it just makes burning candles even more cute. It is only £6.99 which is slightly expensive but it allows you to burn these equally
                                          
Meyler Lemon has not really got much of a throw which disappoints me because before you burn it the smell not as weak as once you have started burning. I though that this might have had a really nice clean fresh smell which would be good in my room right now was it is smo elling a bit horrid but this candle hasn’t made much difference. I really wouldn’t really repurchase this candle again because of these reasons. Currently I can’t find anywhere which has this in stock so I don’t know if you would be able to get any if you wanted to.

Debate On Long Distance Relationships

Hey Guys
It has now got to the time of year where lots of my friends are going to uni  again this then make for the status of people breaking up because they feel like they can’t do long distance relationships without feeling like they are going to cheat to each other. I know that people hate been apart from there other half and temptation is always around you even more so when you are at uni and there is alcohol thrown in and peer pressure which people say is not there but we all know that it happens.
 
I have had people tell me that they don’t know how I do it. My boyfriend is in the army so this means that I don’t get to see him every day or every weekend currently he is based around 2 hours away from my uni which is closer than he was in my first year when it was a whooping 5 hours from me which meant that it was hardly worth coming up because he would get to mine at like 9pm on a Friday and be leaving again on the Sunday around lunch but all the time we did spend together was made even more special because I didn’t get the romantic nights in and all the things which other “normal” couples do. Now he is only 2 hours always from my uni which means that it is going to be easier for him to come up to see me and also when I have time were I don’t need to be at uni on the weekend I can go down and see him.I don’t know how much this will happen at all but a girl can hope right?
I know if I wanted to I could try and get with into a relationship with someone who was at the same university as me which would allow me to see them every time that I wanted. For me though what is the point of been in a relationship if you are just in it for the convenience like who is always there for you when you need something but also treated you like you are nothing and cheat on you or is not treating you like a princess like guys should. 
I know this blog post is random and properly doesn’t make any sense but thank you for reading.

Falling into Blogger Sterotypes

Hey Guys

I have noticed that since I have been off uni for summer and spending more time on my blog that I have fallen into more of the blogging stereotypes which you may think is normal but I am sure my normal friends think I am very strange.  So here is some of the things which I have found myself doing.

My hands are always covered in make up from swatching and it  doesn’t mean I have had a trip to boots or superdrug I could have been sat in my room testing make up that I have not used in the longest time.

I am planning to invest in a fancy camera just for taking product photos and maybe doing Youtube videos but as a student I find myself with very little money for an expensive camera for my hobby I have been told that eating is more important it is debatable.

I always have notes in my phone or on word on my laptop of huge lists of products I would love to purchase and still have not got round to. I know sometimes it does same me money because a product becomes discontinued or I forget about it and never purchase them.

I always seem to know about new product relesases so it annoys me when adverts say new and I know they have been out for at least 2 months does anyone else get like this or when your friends rave about a product and your like that is so old now. I am sure some of my friends still are unaware of the Naked Basics 2.

Every time I get a follower I get a happy dance inside because this means someone is enjoying reading what I post which is a shock to me because I didn’t think anyone would be interested in what I had to say when I started this blog. I am still like this a year and a bit later.

I have so many friends through blogging who I have never met but because of  the fact that I talk them to them so much I class them as my friends and you can always ask them things which your normal friends would look at you strange like asking them if their figures or down. 

You realise that on your memory card there is a lot of pictures of products which you are going blog about when normal people look at your camera they must think that you are so strange because you have all these pictures of things including empty packaging. 

These are just some of the things I have found myself doing what do you find yourself doing?

Autumn Tag 2014

Hey Guys
I have decided that I am going to do the autumn tag now it may be too late in your opinion or too early but it starts once the it is the middle of september I don’t know why but maybe it is because the children have gone back to school and I am thinking about getting back to uni. I saw this tag on the amazing Becca’s blog you should check her out if you haven’t already.
What’s your favourite seasonal drink from Starbucks/ Costa / Cafe Nero? 
Now these have not come out for this year now so I can’t really comment on what it is going to be.  I think it will be something like a latte or something similar because it is not until the Christmas drinks come out that I get that interested when I can have black forest hot chocolate from Costa and the one that tastes like Kinder Buenros from Starbucks but I can’t think what they are called.
Accessories – what do you opt for, scarves, boots or gloves?

I must admit I would rather wear boots if you can class them as an accessory I picked up some amazing ones in the River Island sale on boxing day. I have been wearing them through the summer months but I know that I am going to get even more wear out of them in the autumn months.

Music – what’s your favourite music to listen to?

I didn’t know that people changed their music depend on the season I am not even a massive fan of Christmas music so I will be listening to the usually mix of random music that can be found in my playlists.

Candles – what scents will you be burning this season?

 

I am amazed that  I can now burn these at my uni house which means I am going to be able to burn some autumn one which I can’t wait to be able to burn is the Black Cherry from Yankee Candle I know this may not be the best autumn scent but it is the one which I love the most for autumn.
 Perfume – What is your favourite scent for this time of year?
I don’t have an autumn one yet sou have one that you love let me know in the comments because I am on the hunt for one and it could be one which you recommend to me. 

What do you love about autumn?
I love been able to wrap up in covers and have snuggles while watching a film and also drinking hot chocolate but I know this will not be happening as much this autumn because I am not going to see my boyfriend a lot because of him been in the army which means we don’t spend a lot of time together but when we do it is so special.
Favourite make up look?

I would say that one of my favouite make up looks is very neutral eye make up with black eyeliner and mascara then on my lips something which is dark and vampy sometimes I do change it up and do it the opposite way so have a dark smokey eye and a nude or light lip.

What are you looking forward to most in Autumn?

I am looking forward to going back to uni because I miss them so much and always have so much fun with them it also means that I get to do some cute things planning for Christmas and the events which I am going to around the end of the year but you will hear about them nearer the time.
I am not going to tag selected people but if anyone wants to do this tag I tag you just leave me a link in the comments because I would love to read yours.

Summer Every Day Make Up

Hey Guys
Today I have decided that I am going to share what is in my every day make up bag some of the items have no changed a bit because I have started to transition into autumn make up but this is what I have been using over the summer months. 
 op
I am going to start with the bases which I have been using which are both really sample sizes because of the fact that summer is a good time for me to use these samples because of the fact that I don’t use foundation every day. The first one is Nars Sheer Glow in the Shade Deauville I got this a while back when I went to Manchester a while back and I have fallen in love with this foundation so I have decided that before I go back to uni I may have to get it because I think it could be amazing for nights out because it doesn’t have SPF in it so no flashback. 
The other foundation I have been using is technically a BB cream it is the Rimmel BB cream matte in Light. I got this mini sample when I made a superdrug order so I decided to try it because I have never really found one which I like but this one has impressed me if I don’t want a whole face of make up and it lets my skin breathe a bit. I am still unsure if I love this BB cream but I do have a whole load of BB creams to try while the weather is nice.
On my eyes to make my eyeshadow stay I have been using either the Urban Decay primer potion which you will notice is n the old style packaging I love to use this if I am going somewhere for a long time because of the fact it seems to last all day long. I do have two of the full size ready waiting for this to run out if you haven’t tried it you should.
The other primer which I have been using is one from ELF it is there eyelid primer in the shade Champagne. I used this if I am not going out for the whole day or need my make up for the whole day it is a lot cheaper than the urban decay one but I don’t think it is as good in my opinion but that may just be me. It is just £2 which would be perfect for someone who is just getting into make up. 
If I am using eyeshadows which are not in my palletes which I will do a blog post on later if you would like let me know I have been using the Maybelline Color tattoo in on and on bronze. I have been using this if I just want a bit of colour on my eyes and can’t be bother or have time to do my make up. I will be using this again when I need to put some colour on my eyes and run to a lecture because I have overslept. I love this product and think maybe I do need to get some more of them in different shades.
I have been trying to use some of my eye products which are not in palletes so this summer I have been trying to use Rimmel Scandeleyes in Bulletproof Beige as well as the Bad girl bronze. These are another product which I love because of the ease of them because you can just glide them all the way across you lid and you are ready to go also you can use as a base which I have been doing sometimes when going out. 
For eyeliner I have used the Avon supershock gel liner in Black now this is a product which I love to hate due the fact that no matter how hard you seem to press to remove it at the end of the day it doesn’t seem to want to move an inch this is good because you can forget abut it and not worry about having to reapply it which has been great in the warm weather we have had.
If I wanted to be able to remove my black eyeliner without a battle at the end of the day I reached for my ELF eyeliner crayon in Pitch Black . Even though it claims to be waterproof I don’t think it is the best for this but if you know you will be removing your make up after a short period of time why not use it because the pigment is great. 
If I have not wanted black on my eyes for eyeliner I have been reaching for the Avon glimmersticks diamond in Sugar Plum this is a bit of a purple colour which is a little bit less harsh than the blacks which I normally reach out for much I must say I love this when going for a nudish look.
The Mascara which I have been using is Rimmel Sexy Curves in brown/black 002 now this mascara you can no longer purchase I used to love it but now it has dried up so I am going to have to throw this away I  have been trying to use this up because it seemed to make my lashes clump together and this was never something I wanted to happen. 
For blush I have been using Sleek Rose Gold I love how it gives you some colour and shimmer without looking like you are applying glitter on your face which I think it should I apply Nars Orgasm from swatches I have done previously . I think I am in love with this blush anyway and recommend you check it out if you haven’t already. 
What have you been using this Summer?

30 Day Blogging Challenge – Day 14 3 Healthy Habits

Hey Guys

Today I am going to share with you 3 healthy have developed over time and as a sports student you are constantly told what is good for you and also what is bad. Something which you could class as a healthy habit is that I don’t have full fat milk instead I choose to half semi skimmed because I have decided that skimmed is not for me it does taste like water but I do want to see if I can get used to this.

30 Day Blogging Challenge – Day 13 What’s inside your fridge

Hi Guys

I have decided that I am going do 2 of these posts a day until I have got back up to speed because I really don’t want to let you guys down who have been waiting ages for the rest of these posts to go up.

So today I am going to share with you what is inside my fridge I must admit that I do need to go food shopping but I am trying to use some thing up out of it before everything goes out of date and I have to throw it all away which would just be a waste of money.

I would take a picture but I couldn’t get one which I liked so I decided to write about what I have the first item I see is some blueberrries which I love to go in and snack on because I feel like these are a hell of a lot nicer than snacking on crisps. I have strawberries which is for the same reason as the blueberries.

I have some salad which is left over from last nights tea which I will eat up over the course of the next few days for lunch because I always find this leaves me more full then if I have a sandwich for lunch because this makes me hungry around 4.30pm.

I have some sausages which I am going to cook tonight for tea so they will not be in my fridge much longer because I plan on cooking these very soon because I am starting to get hungry shock. I also have some milk which allows me to make some white coffee which is handy because I only tend to drink black coffee in the morning to wake me up.

I also have some butter which means I can have this on toast in the morning and this is the final item in my fridge I did warn you guys that I needed to go food shopping which I might actually do tonight if the rain keeps off because I don’t fancy getting wet.

What is in your fridge?

30 Day Blogging Challange – Day 12 Your Favouite Childhood Book

Hey Guys

When I was a child I don’t think that I had a favourite book but I do remember that I used to love to read Jacqueline Wilson’s book because they were always so interesting I could read on of her books in around 2/3 days and I have read them multiple times but I musty admit I have not done this for a long time maybe I have become too older for her books now who knows.

I would not be able to decide which of her books I

30 Day Blogging Challenge – Day 11 10 Favourite Foods

Hey Guys

In this post I am going to share with you 10 of my favourite foods now this one has become a bit hard to me because of the fact that I don’t really like eating. Me and food have not had the best relationship over the past few years and maybe one day I will do a post on it.

1 Blueberries are one of my favourite things because you can just have a handful and they are not bad for you there something which I seem to always get out of my fridge when I go to it.

2 Ice cream this is something which I love even more so when I am having a bad day and it is just like an amazing pick me up even when it is the middle of winter I am strange and love eating ice cream.

3 Coffee is one of the other favourite thing I know you could say it is a drink and not something which you eat but this is one of the things that I couldn’t live with this drink

4 Twiglets are another thing which I adore I hate that you only seem to be able to get them around Christmas time but sometimes you can get the in cheap shops all year round. I could eat a whole share bag to myself if you let me.

5 Pasta I think this is because it is so cheap which means that I can afford it when I am at uni and this is something which I seem to eat at least 3/4 times a week.

6 Cheese this is another thing which I like because I feel like it is something which you can just snack on when you want something but don’t know what. Cheese pickle and crackers is something which I like to have for lunch.

7 Toast I love this so much I always seem to have toast as a snack at around 10 o’clock when I am at uni because it just seems to settle me down so I can sleep at night I don’t ever seem to be able to do this when I have been drinking alcohol though

8  Cheesy chips now this is something which I seem to eat after a night out it is one of those things which I don’t think that  would eat if I was sober but this is one thing that seems to help me not get a hangover in the morning the other thing is drink cloudy lemonade in the morning as well.

Now I couldn’t choose 2 more because I go on and off food so much so I am sorry that I have had to cut this so short sorry.

What is your favourite food?

30 Day Challenge- Day 10 Best Trip of Your life

Hey Guys

Due to technical problems I have not been able to get this post up before today even though it was meant to go up on Sunday so I am sorry about this but at least you can read this now which is better than never been able to rather than never been able to read anyway on with the post.

Back in February 2010 more and the rest of family took a trip to Thailand the reason behind this was because it was one of my uncle’s 60th birthday in the August of that year but apparently it would have been the rainy season so that is why we didn’t go then. He choose Thailand because he actually has a house out there as well.We went on the trip with all of my aunties and uncles from my dad’s side of the family and one of my cousins.

I don’t actually have any photo’s of trip well I do but the reason behind this is because they are hard copies and without having to scan them and I am unsure if they would like to be featured on my blog and because it is 4 years ago they are so embarrassing for me.

What was your favourite trip?
