Guess who’s back!

I’m baaaack! Did you miss me? It’s been around 12 months since I last typed up a blog post and does it feel good to get back into the swing again. A lot has happened in the last year, I graduated, got myself a job, got a car and most exciting of all…I’ve become obsessed with candles. Yeah, I know, my eyes have been opened to the wonderful world of scented things that burn. Love.

I’ve wanted to get back into blogging for a while but there was a whole thing where it logged me out of my account and I couldn’t remember my password. But six months has gone by and I’ve been magically logged back into my account. Hooray!

What can you expect from me now? I mean, don’t set your expectations too high but pretty much the same as before. Beauty stuff, food stuff, lifestyle things, etc, etc. I’m going to start with once a week on a Wednesday so look out tomorrow for something new!

Obsessions and why I need help

Yeah, I have serious problems. I’m one of those people who can’t like something a ‘normal amount’, I have to become completely and utterly obsessed by it. In the past two weeks there have been two things that I have been obsessing over, Frozen and Endeavour (this is the thing, it always seems to be a something to do with TV or film.

Let’s start with Frozen. It was only until yesterday that I finally saw the film and I can say that it definitely did not disappoint! But before I had chance to watch the film it was my little challenge (that I set myself) to learn all of the words to the soundtrack, and yes I succeeded. Watching this film has been at the forefront of my mind for so long that I was starting to think that the film would disappoint but that wasn’t an issue. So you may think that because I’ve now seen the film that i’m over it and I’ll move on, oh no. The next few weeks will be filled with more singing, dance moves and quotes, people of the world prepare to get annoyed!

Endeavour is an old obsession that has recently been reignited due to the start of the new series. I can’t explain how much I love this programme it’s just the best! I’ve been watching the first series before the next one so I make sure I can remember what happened for the first episode, I even bought the Radio Times the other day (which I never buy but it was really good so it may be a regular occurrence) because it had interviews with the cast. Someone help me.

All in all I quite like my obsessive stages, it’s just the people around me I think that I annoy!

It was going so well!

It was going to happen sooner or later, I missed a day. But i’m still powering through and determined to get to the end of the month with NO MORE mistakes! Today it was back to normal with the end of my two week holiday, I mean two weeks of intense work…. so it was quite nice to get back into a routine. Until I got to my seminar and found out that my afternoon was cancelled, nothing routine about that. Not long now until the big day and I’m so excited! Out tonight, tomorrow and Saturday for some birthday runtimes, can’t wait!


                  Day ten: I am…



Well today this could only be late. I’m literally so annoyed! It seems I can never do anything like this, I’ve still never fully completed an instagram photo challenge never mind one that actually requires some form of work! This watch is literally the cutest thing, problem is I always forget to wear it. I need some form of memory help…

Flat sweet flat!

After my little ‘uni break’ at home I’m back with a vengeance ready to get to work and eat those Pringles that I left in the cupboard before I left. Let me tell you, those Pringles were good…

                Day nine: Details


This is, what I think, quite a detailed wall full of random things I’ve acquired whilst I’ve been at uni. Normal things like postcards and then slightly weirder things like a plastic hanging hook that you get when you buy socks…yeaa that’s a thing… I quite like this wall now. The more it fills up the more I like it the problem is, I’m not looking forward to taking it down when I leave, 1.because it will be sad and 2. it’s gonna take a loooooooong time.

Present recieval time!

The second of my birthday celebrations took place today and it was great! A family party with lasagne (my favourite) and a chocolate fudge brownie pudding, heaven. Only problem is that tonight’s my last night at home (sad face) before I go back to uni (happy face) so it’s quite bitter sweet but I’m going to make the most of it!

                Day eight: Water


Yes, I realise that this isn’t water but WAter is a bit like WAr horse…okay so I opened my birthday presents today and got this DVD and was way too excited not to use it for today’s picture. It’s just soooooo goooooood!!!! I seriously can’t wait to watch it, again! Other presents include 2 tops, lots of booze and DERREN BROWN TICKETS! That’s right, Derren. Brown. Tickets. As you can probs tell I am beyond excited, so can’t wait for May!

Home sweet home!

What a day to come home, when the theme of today’s photo challenge is ‘childhood’. Meant to be. Everything went smoothly, my train was on time, my tickets printed without issues and life is good! Plus this now means it’s kind of the start of my birthday celebrations! WOOOO! Lets get this party started (phrase meant as least cringey as possible…)


             Day four: Childhood

Horray for a great childhood! Although looking through the old photos to use for this made me realise that I was a slightly weirder than average child. Sure, there are nice smiling photos but equally there are the ‘I didn’t even know that a person could make that face’ ones. It was nice to be nostalgic, especially as I’d forgotten I had these so it was nice to have a look back, except the glasses…never fun to look back on the glasses.
