The Winter Tag!

Photo Credit: weheartit

We have well and truly entered December, and that can only mean one thing- CHRISTMAS!!

I found this lovely little Winter tag on one of my favourite blogs, Wonders Of Dreams
I realised half way through reading it that I haven't done a tag in a really long time, so it seemed fitting to do one for this magical time.

  1.  Top 2 Winter Beauty Essentials
    Most people probably say lip balm don't they? But I literally use all year round. I more or less use the same products throughout the year, but I do find that I tend to get more spots during the winter months and I use Witch blemish Stick which helps them to clear up quickly.
  2. Top 2 Winter Fashion Essentials
  3. Super thick tights and cosy pyjamas- I'm currently loving a pair I picked up in Primark which have loads of little Moomins on!
  4. What shoes do you tend to wear the most in the winter?
    Chelsea boots and high rise converse.
  5. Favourite Winter Accessory
    Earmuffs! And seriously thick mittens! 
  6. Favorite Winter Nail Polish
    Not a paticular brand, but I am loving white and mint blue at the moment.
  7. Hot Cocoa or Apple Cider?
    Apple Cider.
  8. Favorite Winter Candle?
    I don't use candles.
  9. Snowboarding or Skiing?
    I've never done either but I can skateboard and I've tried Surfing so probably Snowboarding.
  10. Have you ever gone Ice Skating? Are you any good or do you FAIL miserably?
    Yes! I love it! As soon as I've got my balance I'm whizzing around all over that ice rink!
  11. Does it snow where you live?
    Very rarely! 
  12. Have you ever made a snowman?
    Yes. Multiple times. Usually it melts after about an hour though because the snow doesn't last very long where I live. 
  13.  What holiday do you celebrate?
  14. Favorite Christmas/Holiday song?
    Fairytale of New York by The Pogues, and Ho Ho Hopefully by The Maine. And of course we can't forget the N'Sync Christmas album.
  15.  Favorite Christmas/Holiday movie?
    The Santa Clause, Miracle on 34th Street and Elf.
  16. What is your favorite winter treat? (candy cane, gingerbread, etc…)
    Gingerbread. And I used to love the White Terry's Chocolate oranges that they brought out at Christmas. I haven't been able to find them in a really long time so i think they stopped making them :(
  17.  Do you have anything fun planned for this winter
    Not really. Just seeing family.  I've picked up alot of extra shifts at work so I'll be very busy this month.

Much love.

Review | My Little Box November 2014

This month My Little Box was filled with cosiness!
You may have read my previous reviews on this darling little subscription box, and I'm so completely in love it, I've decided to keep it up!

I've tried my hardest (and actually managed) to not look at any spoilers, as every subscriber gets the same products. Although, you may get a different shade/colour to someone else.

This month, the theme was cosy! Perfect considering it has just dropped to freezing temperatures here in England.

Pop Punk Is Definitely Not Dead.

Pop Punk has been a apart of my life for maybe 10 years now (maybe more!) Some of my favourite bands are classified in the pop punk genre and you could say it's had a pretty big impact on my life.
Back in May I brought tickets to this beaut of a tour, and on Wednesday I travelled the not-very-long distance to Portsmouth for it!
Just a warning -this may be quite a lengthy blog post!

Live On The Other Side.

What are you afraid of?
This is not unheard of. 
Nothing's how it wasn't always meant to be, always meant to be.

Always meant to be. 

I used to be scared, I used to be like you.
I used to care, then I came unglued.
Well, it's something we all have to learn to do.

I used to be scared, I used to be like you.
I used to care, then I came unglued, unglued.


Tonight alive were so perfect last night.
It was my first time seeing them live and I knew they would be good, but not on that level. 
The whole show was filled good vibes and amazing music.
They are all so ridiculously talented and now I just want to see them again. I am so in love with them all, it's stupid.

Much love.

Halloween Crafting.

Today we visited an adorable little pumpkin farm hidden in the village of Slindon. They had hundreds of different squash/pumpkins and even made a picture out of them! 
I especially loved this little one pac-man ghost shaped one!

Possibly one of my favourite Halloween traditions is obviously pumpkin carving.
Last year I made Jack Skellington this year I decided to go for the more cute-sy kind of pumpkin.
He's got little moon eyes and a big fat smile, and I reckon he's adorable, and I'll be sad to him go. 

I also like to do some form of baking at halloween. I don't really know why -but this year I found these little witches feet to stick into cakes.
i made plain vanilla cupcakes, added purple buttercream icing and gave them feet.
they're very yummy.

I'm probably the only 21 year old not going out tonight, so because plans fell apart, I'll be sat inside watching the Scream movies, The Craft (which p.s is easily in my top 3 favourite films) and endless amounts of Tim Burton movies. Or maybe just do an American Horror Story marathon.
But I'll be wearing my cat ears to make it all seem a bit more Halloween-ey.

Much love.

Review | My Little Box October 2014

A couple of days ago, I received my second edition of My Little Box. And it's a good-un.

Last month I reviewed the first ever edition of the UK's MLB and I was so impressed, I couldn't wait to get my hands on the next box.
Each month has it's own theme, and while September's was more of a "welcome-to-all-things-french" kind of box, October sees the Parisienne company teaming up with the absolute icon that is Diane Von Furstenburg!

Right Back At It Again.

I've gone a month without blogging again.
I don't know. I've not been myself lately, I won't go into detail.
I've spent some time in Brighton -been to a few concerts.

The 1975 were fantastic as always. I saw them at the Alexandra Palace in London with my brother. My brother had never seen them before and I had never seen them at a venue that holds more than 300 people. Ally Pally holds over 7,000. And they had TWO sold out shows there.
I am incredibly proud of them. Considering the first I saw them was 4 years. they were supporting One Night Only in a tiny club in a corner of Brighton. Me and my 2 friends were the only ones that knew them and the only ones that were interested in them.
Now they're selling out huge venues in the capital.

The following day we travelled to Brighton to see some of my favourites- The Maine. A band who are to ridiculously talented for their own good.
Nick Santino was supporting and it was kind of strange seeing perform solo (I've only ever seen him in A Rocket To The Moon) but was fantastic none the less.
Also supporting was Lydia, a band who I've heard of but only know one song of. They were very good and I enjoyed their set immensely.

A week later we went back to Brighton to see The Vamps.
I saw them supporting Mcfly last year (see here and here) and they have a similar approach to their live shows as McFly do, but with their own twist.
Supporting was E of E, a band who I've seen supporting multiple people throughout the year. I won't talk about them too much as I like to focus on the positives on this blog. I guess I just don't really like them all that much...
Next was Luke Friend. I raved about him on my "Ones To Watch" List and supported him all throughout X factor last year. He's going to go far. I can feel it.
Also supporting was Nina Nesbitt. I know the name but none of her songs. She was very good through and would highly suggest checking her out.

Well this is very wordy and not very picture-y. That's not a word.
I posted a few videos on my instagram page here.

I'm sorry i've been gone. Like I said I haven't been feeling myself. And the blog posts I do write, I delete because I really dislike them.
But October's here now, which means Halloween and an endless amount of Tim Burton movies. So I'm kind of in my comfort zone.

I have a couple of beauty reviews coming up soon! I promise they'll be up within the next 2 weeks!

Much love.
