It’s been a really busy month for me this month, and unlike January and February, March felt a lot longer.

1. What was the best thing that happened to you this month?

– TWO WEEK BREAK FROM SCHOOL

Screen Shot 2013-03-31 at 16.29.12

I’ve already been out shopping quite a few times, I’m dying my hair later today, the weather’s been pretty good, I’ve drank about 1,234,567 costa fruit coolers and I’m meeting up with my best friends in Chester on Tuesday. I’m just generally having a really good holiday!

2. What did you do this month that made you feel proud of yourself?

– HAD MY LAST HIGH SCHOOL INJECTION

I hate injections, so having my last one was a relief. (Even though I got really low blood pressure after having it and nearly fainted)

3. What books did you read?

– LOOKING FOR ALASKA BY JOHN GREEN

11035650_l_1361256958

I still haven’t had time to finish this book, even though it’s a great one!

4. What movies did you watch?

– BRIDGET JONES THE EDGE OF REASON

l_317198_605aa55d

Watched this when I was ill at home, and I loved it so much.

5. What tv shows did you watch?

– MISFITS AND MAYDAY

I watched Mayday when I was at home ill, because my friends were bugging me to watch it, and I really liked it. It had me on the edge of my seat with suspense and I enjoyed every episode. I’ve wanted to watch Misfits for a while, and after watching a few epsidoes, I’m completely and utterly addicted.

6. What games did you play?

– SIMS 3

5310447_700x700min_1

I got this for Christmas, but didn’t really get and opportunity to play it, but I played it a lot this month!

7. What food did you try and love?

– COFRESH SESAME BITES

563(26489471563IDShot_225x225

One word : YUMMY!

8. What were your favourite fashion/beauty items?

– MUA EYESHADOW HEAVEN AND EARTH PALETTE, NEXT SUMMER HEAT PERFUME AND NSPA GRAPEFRUIT BODY LOTION

I love the MUA Eyeshadow palette because, even though it’s a fairly cheap palette, it’s really pigmented and it has some really gorgeous smokey and natural colours. I only bought the Next Summer Heat Perfume the other day, but I’ve already fallen in love with it because it smells so good! The scents in it are citrus, mandarin, cinnamon and mocha cream.

9. What was your favourite song?

– THE PHOENIX BY FALL OUT BOY

THE BOYS ARE BACK!!!

10. What did you buy/What were you given?

– THE LION KING SIMBA MEDIUM TOY

I’m a Disney Junkie, and I can’t go into the Disney store without buying something!

I’ve loved Disney from a very young age, and it’s a big part of my life. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do a post on this week, and I eventually came up with the idea of doing a Disney post about my favourite characters etc. I really want to make this a tag, so if you have a blog and you’ve run out of post ideas, or just really want to do this post, feel free to answer the questions I used below, making sure title it “Disney Tag” so I can read your posts! (Also, I’d really appreciate it if you could leave credit for the idea somewhere in your post!)

1. What’s your favourite movie?

Bambi, The Lion King and Fantasia. I’ve always loved animals and magic, so these films were perfect for me.

2. Who’s your favourite character?

favourite characters

It was too hard to pick one, so I’ve picked five of my favourites:

• Oliver (Oliver and Company)

8. Do you own any Disney Merchandise?

DSCF1079

Roughly once a month.

10. Have you ever been to Disney Land?

I can’t believe I’m already at my 10th post! It feels like it was just yesterday that I set everything up! Anyway, seeing as it’s still fairly early on in the year, I thought it would be a good idea to write a wish list for the year, as I’ve already seen a lot of things I want to buy. I’ll also be writing another Wish List before Christmas this year.

1. MARTY MAGIC BRONZE SPIRO EAR CUFF

I fell in love with this Ear Cuff quite a while ago, but I haven’t got around to buying it yet. It’s around £20 from Marty’s Etsy Shop. I also really like her dragon and snake ear cuffs, and I’ll definitely buy one if I like this one! My favourite thing about her cuffs is the fact that you don’t need pierced ears to wear them!

2. NIKON COOLPIX L310

tumblr_mflt04Cuc11qjunejo1_500

Gorgeous looking, 14.1mp, £120. What more can I say, I’m in love.

3. THE LEGEND OF ZELDA HYRULE HISTORIA

hyrulehist_large_verge_super_wide

I’m a big fan of Zelda, and after seeing this on display in Waterstones, I really want it.

4. TOPSHOP MOTO BLEACH CONTRAST DRESS

05D26DBLC_large

I never wear dresses, but I absolutely love this, and I think it would look really nice with some black leggings.

5. DARK ATOMIC TEAL NIKE BLAZERS

2390053

I don’t own a pair of Blazers yet, but they’re gorgeous, especially in this colour. Shame that my size is currently out of stock.

6. OHM HAPPY TOOTH CHARM

41El+yX32uL._SL500_AA300_

I need 5 teeth pulled, so I thought it would be cute to get a charm for my pandora bracelet. Pandora, however, don’t make tooth charms, so I had to search for one that was compatible. I think this one is really cute!

7. APPLE TV

_DSC2624

The entire Netflix streaming catalogue, iTunes, YouTube. All on your tv. I need this.

8. GUCCI PREMIERE PERFUME

Gucci-Premiere

This smells divine, but I have too much perfume at the moment anyway.

9. ST LOUIS BLUES HOODIE

Screen Shot 2013-03-17 at 16.24.17

I’m becoming quite a fan of watching NHL recaps, and I support the Blues, so why not? It looks really comfy!

10. SONIC MEGA COLLECTION FOR GAMECUBE

Sonic_Mega_Collection_Coverart

7 Classic Sonic games, on one disk, for about £10 in excellent condition. I need more GameCube games, and I really want this to be a part of my collection.

liverpool shopping trip

Yesterday, I went to Liverpool with my dad to pick up my computer from The Apple Store, where it was being fixed. It was unlikely that I was going to go to Liverpool, pick up my computer and leave straight away, so I took the opportunity of being in one of Britain’s shopping capitals to do some well earned spending.

After arriving in Liverpool, we went to The Cake Shop in the Liverpool Central train station to order a cupcake for Mother’s Day. We ordered a vanilla cupcake with blue frosting and a fondant kermit on top.

We then went straight to the Apple Store to let the staff know that we would be picking the computer up later on in the day. After going to the Apple Store, we went to Yee Rah, a thai and european restaurant, for lunch. I have chicken pad thai and my dad had a thai green curry. The food was delicious, the staff were great and the food was cooked within minutes!

Screen Shot 2013-03-10 at 15.39.25

After lunch, we went to Superdrug, and I got some amazing deals. From MUA, I got an eyeshadow palette in “Heaven and Earth” and an intense colour eye liner in the shade “Rich Brown”.

DSCF1055

From Look Beauty I got some Loud Lips Lipstick and some Loud Lip Liner, both in the shade “Hyper Melon”.

DSCF1054

And from Collection 2000 I got some more of my favourite BB Secrets BB Cream, and I got some more of my Extreme Liquid Eyeliner for free because of a special offer.

DSCF1062

After Superdrug, we went to The Body Shop to get some gifts for my mum, but I ended up buying myself some things too. I got some Japanese Cherry Blossom Fragrance Mist and some Mango Whip Body Lotion.

DSCF1039

We then went to Primark, and I picked up some really nice clothes. I got two Topshop style shirts, one black with “RAD” on the front, and one in a pale teal with “DORK” on the front. Both were only £4.

I then picked up three basic long sleeved shirts, two round neck, one v neck.

I also picked up some speckled socks, some rings, and some marvel wrapping paper.

After Primark, we went to the Disney Store, because a shopping trip isn’t a shopping trip if you don’t go to the Disney Store. I got an Eeyore Soup mug and a baby Simba for £7.99 instead of £18.00!

All in all, it was a brilliant day out, and I got some lovely gifts for my mum! I also got her some peas in a pod from the Disney Store, some Jean Paul Gaultier body cream, some Karité body butter and some Moringa milk body lotion from The Body Shop. Happy Mother’s Day Mum!

Questions concept

This week, it took me a while to think of what I was going to blog about, as I decided not to do an update this month. I’m not doing an update for February because, firstly, I didn’t do much of anything and secondly, I already posted a half term update last month. So this week I thought it would be a good opportunity to answer some questions about myself.

1. Pepsi or Coke?

Coke, purely because Cherry Coke and the cute glass bottles Coke sometimes comes in.

2. Mexican or Italian Food?

Such a hard decision, but Mexican.

3. Halloween or Christmas?

Christmas!

4. Pizza or Spaghetti?

Pizza, oh my gosh I’m obsessed.

rwagdhukikdfhsdnjglzd

5. Tv or Movies?

Movies, because of the snacks! (I especially love Fanta Frozen)

6. Books or Magazines?

Books, because apart from my monthly small animals magazine, I don’t really read magazines much.

7. Winter or Summer?

Summer! I used to hate hot weather, but now I’m missing the sun!

8. Long or Short Nails?

Short, because long ones would get on my nerves.

9. Tea or Coffee?

Coffee! I’ve never liked Tea.

10. Cupcakes or Muffins?

Even though I love blueberry muffins, I’d have to say cupcakes.

11. Starbucks or Costa?

Costa, because their mocha is perfection.

12. McDonalds or KFC?

This is genuinely the hardest question ever. If I had to choose between them, I’d choose KFC.

13. Cats or Dogs?

Cats! They’re so adorable!

14. Night or Morning?

Morning, especially Saturday mornings!

15. Chicken or Beef?

Even though I love chicken a lot, I have to go with beef.

16. Chocolate or Candy?

Chocolate, but only if it’s started melting a little bit, I hate cold chocolate!

17. Bath or Shower?

Bath, even though I have showers everyday, but rarely ever have baths.

18. Trains or Planes?

Trains, because they’re calming.

19. Roses or Lilies?

Lilies!

20. Blogging or Vlogging?

Blogging, because it’s so much easier.
