june update

This month passed a little bit slower than the rest, but it still ended sooner than I expected it to!

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

– GOT MY NINTENDO 3DS XL

nintendo_3ds_xl-2110956

I’ve been wanting a 3DS XL for a very, very long time, and I finally got one this month!

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

– FINISHED MY EXAMS FOR ANOTHER YEAR

tumblr_lkyeeiH8mZ1qc4uvwo1_500

I’m really proud of how I composed myself for these exams, and I’m feeling much more confident for my exams next year!

3. What books did you read?

– AN ABUNDANCE OF KATHERINES BY JOHN GREEN

katherines

I’ve had this book sitting on my shelf for at least a year, but I’d never had a chance to read it. So I started reading it this month, and I’m quite enjoying it so far!

4. What movies did you watch?

– THE FAULT IN OUR STARS

1-29-Official-“The-Fault-in-Our-Stars”-Movie-Trailer

I loved the book, so it was obvious that I was going to love the film. I welled up, many times.

5. What tv shows did you watch?

– STORAGE HUNTERS

storage.hunters

I’ve always loved this show, but I’ve just become obsessed with it this month!

6. What games did you play?

– ANIMAL CROSSING NEW LEAF

AnimalCrossing_wallpaper_1920x1200-A

I’m aware that I’m very late to the party, but I’ve become so obsessed with this game! I love everything about it!

7. What food did you try and love?

– ONION BAGELS

onion

I’d had onion bagels before, but this month I discovered a new found love for them!

8. What were your favourite fashion/beauty items?

– AUSSIE THREE MINUTE MIRACLE FOR DAMAGED HAIR, REVLON LIPSTICK IN BLACK CHERRY AND PROVOKE TOUCH OF SILVER SHAMPOO

june 2014 favourites

A large portion of my hair has been bleached, so I need to treat it quite regularly to avoid split ends. I’ve been using the Aussie Three Minute Miracle treatment as though it’s a conditioner, and it’s really improved the condition of my hair (plus it smells incredible!). I’ve been wanting to invest in a nice dark lipstick for a short while now, and I found this Revlon Lipstick in Black Cherry whilst looking for one online. Although the lasting power isn’t very good, the colour is beautiful, and I think that it really suits my skin tone. Because my hair is naturally dark brown, it turned a slightly brassy colour after I had it bleached. I’ve been using the Provoke Touch of Silver Shampoo for a few months now, and it’s really helped even out my hair colour.

9. What was your favourite song?

– DON’T BY ED SHEERAN

ed-sheeran-x

I fell in love with this song after hearing a snippet from it on an advert.

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

– ANIMAL CROSSING NINTENDO 3DS XL

– HALF TERM HOLIDAYS

tumblr_lpgc2hGZbv1qei7a7o1_400sopretty

I know it’s becoming repetitive that I choose the holiday as the best part of my month, but holidays have been very important to me lately, because of how stressful school has been.

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

– FINISHED HALF OF MY EXAMS

tumblr_mnlg515w3U1rhrba7o1_500

I’ve been pretty worried for my exams, considering that they count for a large percentage of my final grade, but they went really well, and I’m very happy with how I’ve done!

3. What books did you read?

– /

Unfortunately, because I’ve been really busy this month, I haven’t had a chance to sit down and read anything.

4. What movies did you watch?

1024_spirited-away

This is such a wonderful film, and I think every Disney fan should watch it, even if you’ve never heard of Studio Ghibli!

5. What tv shows did you watch?

gameofthrones.wikia_

After years of putting it off, I’ve finally gotten around to watching the infamous Game Of Thrones, and I’m completely hooked already!

I’ve never really enjoyed egg salad, but this month, I was completely converted!

8. What were your favourite fashion/beauty items?

– LUSH STRAWBERRY FEELS FOREVER MASSAGE BAR, THE BODY SHOP PASSION FRUIT SHOWER GEL AND LUSH PINK FUN

may favourite 2014

I’ve always loved Lush Massage Bars, so I decided to buy their new strawberries and cream scented bar! It smells absolutely divine and really helps my keratosis pilaris, but if you don’t like having to wait a while for the oil to sink into the skin, I would not recommend this product! I’m a huge fan of The Body Shop, and love the other products in their passion fruit range, so I decided to try this! It smells wonderful, and I really love it! I’ve always known about Fun from Lush, but have never tried it, so I decided to try it this month! I really like the smell, but I have to admit that it unfortunately does dry the skin out quite a lot.

9. What was your favourite song?

– ALL I WANT BY KODALINE

A006_C038_04281Q

I love Kodaline, so it was inevitable that I was going to love this song!

– LUSH HANDY GURUGU

Lush sent me this wonderful little pot of cream for free with one of my orders earlier on in the month, and I really love it!

– FINALLY GOT GLASSES

tumblr_ltgldxK5mR1r1jy8no1_500

5. What tv shows did you watch?

– THE CLEVELAND SHOW

the_cleveland_show_wallpaper_1600x1200_1

I’ve always loved Family Guy, but never really taken much notice of The Cleveland Show. It was being aired quite often before Family Guy this month, so I decided to watch it a few times, and I actually quite enjoyed it!

6. What games did you play?

– DISCO ZOO

Disco-Zoo-642x856

This game was recommended to me by a friend earlier this month, and needless to say, I’ve become addicted.

Laksa is a spicy asian noodle soup, and even though I love asian food, for some reason I’ve never tried laksa. I tried it for the first time this month, and absolutely loved it!

– RIMMEL RITA ORA NAIL POLISH IN LOSE YOUR LINGERIE, VICTORIA’S SECRET FRAGRANCE MIST IN AMBER ROMANCE AND MAYBELLINE BROW DRAMA SCULPTING MODEL

beauty favourites april 2014

I’ve been looking for the perfect pastel pink nail polish for a while now, and I found this one while out shopping! It’s a really lovely colour and it compliments my skin tone really well! I bought this Victoria’s Secret Fragrance Mist a few months ago, but never really fell in love with it until this month! It smells sweet, but not sickly, and I really love it! I’ve wanted a brow mascara for a few months, and found this one online! It works really well, and doesn’t make my eyebrows feel crispy!

9. What was your favourite song?

– YELLOW MADNESS BY MIGHTY MIKE

228922_10151091548158379_711773604_n

march favourites collage

I’ve always loved sweet almond scents, and I’m a big fan of The Body Shop’s Almond Hand and Nail cream, so I decided to order the Almond Shower Gel online! It smells delicious, makes my skin feel soft and doesn’t irritate my skin! I’ve wanted a replacement for my Vanilla Body Mist as it’s almost empty, so I decided to buy the Madagascan Vanilla Flower Body Mist to match the Perfume Oil I bought in the same scent. I absolutely love it! I’ve wanted a new cleanser for a long time, as I never really liked my Cetaphil cleanser much, so I decided to try this cleansing balm, and I’m so glad I did! It takes all of my makeup off with ease and makes my skin feel really smooth!

9. What was your favourite song?

– GAME OF THRONES COVER BY PETER HOLLENS AND LINDSEY STIRLING

Last week, my school was closed for half term. Today is the last day of the half term, which is a shame, because I really enjoyed having a break and getting to spend some time with my family. I’m sorry I’ve written two update blogs in a row, but I did quite a lot in the half term that I wanted to share with you.

On Saturday, I went shopping around for a shed for my rabbit, but I didn’t find one. I went to the garden shop where I got my rabbit to look for a shed, and I saw a rabbit that looked exactly like mine! On Sunday I wrote my “January Update” blog and cooked some chinese food for Chinese new year with my dad!

IMG_0450

On Monday, I literally did nothing but watch youtube videos and be lazy all day. Tuesday was Pancake Day, and, obviously, I made pancakes. I used a Delia Smith recipe, even though I’m not a huge fan of her, I really loved the pancakes!

IMG_0456

On Wednesday, I went shopping to Chester with my dad. It was snowing really heavily all day, and I got absolutely drenched! After arriving at the train station, we went to Costa to have a coffee.

IMG_0468

I went to lots of different shops, including Primark, Superdrug, Yankee, Sweets from Heaven and WHSmiths. From Primark, I bought some more pyjamas (they’re so comfy!), a denim shirt, a jumper and some socks.

DSCF0972

From Superdrug, I bought some Collection nail polish (Shade is 37 – Bongo Beat), a new powder brush, some “I love” raspberry and blackberry body wash and some of my favourite L’Oreal shampoo for coloured hair. I also went to this cute little shop called “Lee Louise” and got some La Riche hair dye for the easter holidays!

PicMonkey Collagegfhny

From the Yankee shop, I got a Mango Peach Salsa candle, and a really cute bath bomb that has pressed flowers in it! Everything came in a really cute bag, and the staff were really kind.

DSCF0980

From Sweets from Heaven, I bought some Wonka Sweetarts and some Tootsie Pop Drops!

DSCF0981

From WHSmiths, I bought “An Abundance of Katherines” by John Green and some of my favourite Lindt Lindor chocolate.

DSCF0975

Thursday was Valentines Day, and my and my dad cooked some steak for my mum, and I baked some rainbow cupcakes! We also got this cute heart balloon from a card shop when we were out shopping for food.

On Friday I went shopping again and I bought tons of makeup from Boots! I got some Rimmel Face Power and concealer for my mum, Rimmel Wake Me up Foundation, Rimmel Nail Polish, Nivea Lip Balm, Boots Apple and Lime Body Spray and some of my favourite L’Oreal Elnett Hair Spray.

IMG_0571

Yesterday and today I did absolutely nothing all day apart from write this blog post, because I thought I deserved a break from the busy week I’ve had. I don’t want to go back to school, but there’s only five weeks until the easter holidays, and we have almost three weeks off! My highlight of the week was when Dodie Clark (doddleoddle on youtube) favourited two of my tweets, and liked and commented on one of my instagram pictures! I love her so much!
