What a load of slime – Snail Facials

So for £50 are you prepared to let snails slime their way over your face for 20 minutes for an instant glow?… Definitely Not. I had to turn up my nose at the article  in ‘The Mirror’ explaining that ‘The trail of mucus which is said to contain highly beneficial proteins, anti-oxidants, and anti-bacteria’… but it also forgets to mention that it most likely contains shit too. I mean Come on…  I for one will not be putting my name down for the treatment.

Yes Mr Snail, I feel the same way.

Graduation Ball Dress ideas

My University graduation is coming up next week and i have to admit finding a dress has been quite difficult. Gone are the years where the shorter or brighter the dress was the key. As it is a graduation ball it is a sign of maturity so extremely short and revealing dresses are a big no no but you still want to look sexy! Finding the perfect combination of classy and sexy is the key I find. In my personal opinion simple is best as you can go to accessory heaven. Here are a few dresses I found from high street stores, that fit the bill!Image

Photography work

I have always been interested in photography, since studying it as a A Level back in 2008. I’ve only done the odd shoot here and there since 2010 but would love to get back into it. There’s just something about capturing a moment or creating a message with just one image.

Here’s a few of my images from different shoots I thought I would share with you all!

Hand lotion

I’ve been suffering for dry hands for a while now even though they are not that bad but hey every like soft hands right?

I’ve tried a number of hand moisturising creams and I have narrowed it down to two that i need to rave about.

1.  Hand Food by Soap & Glory

 This smells heavenly and I found myself wanting to use it more often just so i could smell it!. This kept my hand so soft and feeling hydrated and even helped with a nasty scar I have on my little finger, reducing the roughness of the scar. I would definitely recommend. It was £5 for a 125ml tube.

2. VS Fantasies Ultra moisturising hand and body cream in Coconut Passion

I am in love with this range from victoria secret beauty collection. Its extremely moisturising leaving my hands feeling so soft and healthy. I cannot explain my love for the vanilla and coconut fragrance, that i also bought the body mist too! A downside to this product was it was more expensive than the soap & Glory at £11 for a 250ml tube.

Music Lover

I am a massive Music lover and I just can’t seem to dedicate myself to one genre. I have been going to concerts since I was about religiously since i was about 8, my first one being ever one being when i was a baby to see Kool and The Gang. That’s right my mum and Dad thought it was a great idea to take twin babies to a concert… CELEBRATE GOOD TIMES C’MON, Not that i remember the concert mind you but still not many people can say that James “J.T.” Taylor said that they were the most beautiful baby they had seen. That title my friends is dedicated to me (must of had a few whiskeys at that point). My concert that i can remember has to be good old Steps, popping out of massive christmas presents. So i have decided to put together a list of people i have seen Live, giving you and idea of what music i like and also to remind myself as i have a memory of a fish!

One Direction ‘This Is Us’ Movie *Contains Spoilers*

The day the premiere of One Direction had arrived Tuesday 20th August 2013. I was a very lucky lady indeed to receive tickets to advanced screening of the film in Sheffield. I could hardly contain my excitement because as you know I am a major fangirl of the 1D Lads.

One Direction at This Is Us premiere in London

 The screening started at 5:30 showing the live stream from the red carpet premiere in London. I was at that point clapping and singing along with the other girls at the screening even i 95% was a GREAT deal younger than myself but HEY i will bond with anyone who can belt out the Take Me Home album at the top of their lungs. There was a wake up call when the Lads arrived on the red carpet and a girl of 8, screamed ‘Pinch me… I must be dreaming’ and another one ‘Niall you sexy Irish Leprechaun get in my bed’ where i found myself do a double take but that was soon forgotten when the Lads winked and kissed the camera, queue swooning.

 THE MOVIE

OH My DAYS it was incredible (Not that I’m Biased}, The documentary was every directioners dream there was plenty of laughter, songs and even teary bits from the Lads parents which had me weeping like a baby.

Favourite bits

ALL OF IT…

but if i had to be picky here were my top  moments

1. When the Boys went Home. You get a glimpse of their home life and their life before X Factor, seeing the boys at home and acting like the down to earth lads you expect them to be. You even get to meet louis northern Gran who seems like a legend and wants to make an appearance at a show when she gets some ear plugs.

2. When Harry and Liam are just chilling on a dock of some sort. Harry just lying there being beautiful and Liam is doing some graft catching a fish, until he finally catches a decent sized fish and the pair of them are pratting around with this fish, with them both dying of laughter. Which resulted in myself crying wth tears.

3.  The Concert. Seeing the concert in 3D was amazing, even if i was scanning the crowd to see if i could see myself at the concert. Even though i think they must of cut my footage as I was basically shaking my boobs at Mr Harry Styles. Perks of the 3D made it very up close and personal, had to stop myself from reaching out to stroke Liam’s face. I was singing along to my favourite songs and shedding a little tear for ‘Little Things’ as i am teenage girl after all (Well I like to think I am)

4. Im sorry but i can’t miss out the bit where Niall is at Pride Park watching Derby County play. As I am also a Derby girl! COME ON YOU RAMS.

5. When the lads perform a backstage run through of little things and Niall and HARRY have a moment on bonding. NARRY alert. Harry very romantically shoves his finger up Niallers nose whilst singing the heart warming song and flicks his bogie away. So beautiful.

THis is as i said a directioner’s dream but even those who not so much fans of the lads will enjoy it as it reveals how relatable they are and down to earth. THye been given an opportunity and are grabbing by the horns. SO hats off to them. I wouldn’t change this for the world (Especially Harry in his boxers) but i would like to of learnt something new about the boys, but this might just be a sign that I in fact know too much about them and in fact am a stalker.

In cinemas from the 29th!

This Is Us

The Life of Job Hunting begins

I am now a graduate of The University Of Lincoln ( for those Inbetweeners fans ‘Goodbye first rate education, Hello University Of Lincoln’) or goodbye in my case! It has been an emotional roller coaster filled with laughter, red bull and supernoodles. I am now opening my eyes to real world in where looking for jobs is the first thing I do in the morning to the last ( apart form checking one directions twitter of course). It difficult to decide what i want to do, as I just keep hoping the perfect job will jump out at me ( Cough Cough Sugarscape or One Directions PA) but reality has hit me and tossing burgers seems a more likely choice.  I have gone from wanting a job in journalism,Theatre, scriptwriting, photography, Filmmaking, social media and becoming a Youtuber. So From today I have given myself tasks until October to keep my head in the game.

1. Write to EVERY one i can in regards to internships and start networking

2. Start writing a sitcom (Ive gathering ideas for a while now)

3. Do a blog post everyday!

4. REMAIN POSITIVE – You never know miracles do happen!
