The Movies [Sunday Social]

Hello! Welcome to another Sunday. It’s been a nice, but busy weekend, with birthdays, meals out, karaoke, and bowling! This is the first time I’ve been able to just sit down and relax all weekend.

1. What is your favorite thing to watch on a girls night?
I will be happy with any sort of rom-com… Something like Failure to Launch will always entertain me.


2. What is your favorite thing to watch on your day off?
I’ve been blitzing through Breaking Bad recently. I’m not sure what to watch when I’m done!


3. What is your favorite thing to watch when you're sick?
Something funny that will cheer me up. Mean Girls  is always a good option.


4. What is the last movie you saw in the theater?
I’m going to go with Frozen. I absolutely love that film and I’m gutted I keep missing the sing-a-long versions!


5. What are your top three favorite movies or tv shows?
TV: Breaking Bad, Parks and Rec, Brooklyn Nine Nine
Films: Closer, Frozen, Despicable Me (these constantly change though!)
BreakingBad

And there we have it! Next Sunday it will be the start of the half term, and I can’t wait!

4 [Sunday Social]

Remember when I said that I wanted to blog more in 2014? That resolution isn’t going so well… Anytime I sit at my computer to tidy up the posts I have almost ready to post, I think about all my planning for school and get caught up in that! Bring on half term I say.
 
1. 4 Favorite bands you loved in high school
I was boyband obsessed. I loved NSync, Backstreet Boys, Take That, and Boyzone.
 
2. 4 go to meals you'd love to learn to cook or can cook really well
I cannot cook so this question is completely lost on me!
 
3. 4 necessities to your daily life
My phone (so materialistic!), friends, hand cream (especially during these cold months), and my bag.
 
4. 4 makeup necessities you must have if you could only have 4 on
Mascara, lippie, and some sort of cheek colour. I can’t think of anything for my fourth.
 
5. 4 favorite apps on your phone or iPad
Bridges, Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest.

And there we are for another Sunday. I'd love to say "See you in the week" but we all know that there is no point in getting our hopes up until half term (which is two weeks away) where I will spend my whole week preparing posts to last me through the next part of the term. Hopefully.

Now, I'm off to a Superbowl party! Woohoo! Enjoy your Superbowl Sunday friends.

Hair and Beauty [Social Sunday]

And we’re back for another Sunday Social. I’m feeling very tired, and I can’t switch my brain on to say something meaningful here. So I’m going to get on with it…
 
1. How old were you when you started wearing makeup?
I wore nail varnish ridiculously early. But face make up didn’t come until about 15/16 (I was too scared to get in trouble at school and I wore glasses so I didn’t see the point).
 
2. What are your top 3 favorite beauty products?
I love my Rimmel Apocalips in Big Bang, Maybelline Falsies Mascara, and my Sleek Blush in Rose Gold.
 
3. What is one makeup product you don't leave home without?
I don’t wear make up on a daily basis (a mixture of teaching and glasses just means I can’t be bothered in the mornings!), so I always make sure to have some sort of lip balm with me.
 
4. What is your daily beauty routine?
I brush mousse through my hair, and dry with a diffuser to bring out my curls. Then I use a selection of Botanics products on my face (cleanser and toner), and finish with some moisturiser.
 
5. What is your favorite hair/makeup product you've discovered in the last year?
I love two things, both for my hair. First, my Panasonic Nanoe hairdryer (it makes it so shiny!), and my BaByliss Big Hair Spinning Brush (it helps to tame my frizzy mess, and make is nice and bouncy).
 
And there we go. Another Sunday is almost over… Until next week!

A Challenge for You… 100 Happy Days

I’m not sure how many of you have seen this, or even taking part in it but it’s something that I have been doing for a week now. Not only is it making me Instagram more, I’m also noticing those little things in life that make you happy.

100HappyDays


As they say on the website, 71% of people don’t complete the challenge. Why not pop over there, see what it’s all about and then see if you can complete it.

I’m off to a charity quiz night shortly. So I will update this post with my first 7 days once a) I have returned and b) I’ve worked out how to get Instagram pictures into my post (any help would be greatly appreciated).

Rule of Three [Sunday Social]

Hello, hello, hello! What a week it’s been. I was sent home from work on Monday and then on Wednesday I achieved a 1stone weight loss (so far!!!). Hooray! AND I bought a few size 14 tops, which I’ve not worn for quite a few years. It’s all so exciting.

Now onto Sunday Social (with a fancy new button)…

1. Top 3 favorite kinds of food
Chocolate (obvs), Italian, and tapas.
 
2. First 3 things you do in the morning
Check Facebook & Instagram, grab my glasses, and snooze my alarm (for at least half an hour).
 
3. Last 3 things you do at night
Check Facebook & Instagram (addicted?), plug my phone in, and play some sort of game on the iPad.
 
4. 3 TV shows you NEVER miss
Parks and Rec (love a bit of Leslie), Brooklyn Nine-Nine (has anyone watched it? I love!), and Pretty Little Liars (I can’t seem to work anything out, who is A?!).
 
5. 3 places you want to visit
New York, New York, and New York!
 
6. 3 people you can always count on
My lovely mum, and my two lovely bridesmaids.

And there we are. Sunday Social is done for another week. See you next time!
