A night with Jimmy Carr!

Hey everyone!

Last Saturday myself and Craig went to see Jimmy Carr at the Hammersmith Apollo, I brought tickets for Craig to go and see him as a Christmas present, so if he didn't take me there would've been A LOT of trouble! Which is understandable right? 

We had both been looking forward to this for ages, well, since Christmas, because with Craig's job it is very rare that we get to spend a whole day with each other at the weekend! (Word of advice kids.. Never date a chef).. 


We decided that it would only be right to make a whole day of it, so we decided to get the train to London fairly early so we could have a few drinks and something to eat beforehand without it feeling like that we were rushing. Whenever we go to London for some reason our first stop is always Covent Garden, so naturally, we went there first! There is just something about Covent Garden that I love and I don't think I would ever get bored of it? 



 Our first stop was this amazing cocktail bar called 21. When you walk in there is such a divine smell of Italian food being cooked and the cocktails are amazing! They have two outdoor terraces. We've only ever sat on the one which looks out over the street entertainers! 



After having a few drinks there it was time to make our way to see Jimmy Carr at the Apollo. Which was absolutely amazing! I don't know whether Jimmy Carr's sense of humour would be to everyones taste, but i absolutely love him! One word of advice is to never EVER ask a question or have any involvement in the heckling part of the show that some comedians do, because they will literally go in to you. 

We had such a lovely day and night, as it's not something that we get to do very often, so i thought it would be nice to do a post like this as it gives me something to look back on and I like sharing things like this with you! 

Who's your favourite comedian?

Reflection..

This isn't my usual kind of blog post, but I am having one of those nights where you just think and look back on things. (One reason for me doing this is because I cannot sleep because of the loud music outside!) As most of you will know now, I am coming to the end of my time at uni which is literally the most scariest thing, and exciting at the same time.. If you have been to uni I am sure you will understand what I mean, when you have mixed emotions. But anyway.. 

There has been SO much in the news recently, about young children, teenagers, doing really nasty things to their teachers, which just should not happen to anyone. One story in particular which has shocked a number of people is the Ann Maguire case, and a more recent one of two kids putting bleach in their teachers cup of tea. 

If you are still at school and reading this, and your not loving it, you think teachers are mean, and really strict, and you are sick to death of people telling you that school is the best time of your life because you don't see how it is even possible. I used to think the EXACT same. When I first started secondary school I wasn't a fan, I'm not going to lie, I went to a catholic all girls school, and by the time I reached year 9 I just new that school was not for me. I'm a very creative person.. Its completely fine to be like that and so I was lucky to be able to find a school after that which suited me perfectly which was going to a full time theatre school, so as well as the academic subjects I did vocational subjects 2 day a week which consisted off singing, acting and dancing.

I know, its not for everyone, and I know its not possible for everyone to go to a theatre school, but it is important that we all go to school and get as much out of it as you physically can, because if you don't you will regret it. I know it will not seem like that now. But 100% trust me on this one. When you are bored at school, or not enjoying it and you and your friends are mucking around, and your teacher tells you off, just remember they are not doing it to be horrible. They are doing it because they have your best interest at heart and they want you to do well in order to succeed. School is the first step, to the rest of your life, your career. 

If you ask me or anyone I know, they will all say that they wish they were still at school. So do not wish it away. Enjoy every minute of it, make the most of it, don't make enemies with your teachers, be civil with them, make memories because you will be able to treasure them forever.  You may think that school, is pointless, boring, ect but in 5 years time after you have finished you won't. You will look back and be glad that you made the most of your school years, because believe me it goes by just like that!

Back to normality..:)

Hey Guys!!

Sorry I've been such a rubbish blogger at the minute.. Uni has literally been crazy! I've had so much work to do. I've finished my final major project now! (YAY)


It consisted of a 13 minute documentary, 10 minutes of audio, 36 images, and 4500 words. 

My last deadline is on Friday. Its quite scary to think how quickly the last three years have gone and that soon I will be getting my first proper full time job. Something other than waitressing and bar work, which is scary but exciting. 

I have been shopping recently. Been loving Primark at the minute. I never normally buy anything from there, which is probably down to the fact that it is always chaos! Especially the Oxford Street one in London. Anyway, I'm hoping to when I finish to do lots of outfit posts, maybe a haul. I want to spend more time blogging. What posts would you guys like to see? 

Also I am doing race for life in 6 weeks time! So if you would like to sponsor me I would really appreciate it! you can do that HERE. I am raising money for Cancer Research. Any donation will help big or small and its for such an amazing cause. 

Have any of you been doing exams? Or had lots of coursework?

My lip pet hate..

Hello Everyone! Hope your all okay :)

This is probably going to sound like a bit of a rant post.. However, its not intended to be so in advance I am very sorry if it is. I know most girls will agree with me when I say having dry, chapped lips is one of the worst things? If you think this, and get dry lips quite often then carry on reading... 

Ever since about the age of 16 when my friend introduced me to this lip balm...



I have always gone out and brought it.. I've been using it a lot recently because for some reason my lips have been getting dry every few days.. One day they will be completely fine and then the next.. VOILA, they are dry again! SO frigging annoying. Anyway.. 

I used to think that Carmex was the best lip balm ever, no exaggeration. I used to love it. Theres something about the smell too. Im quite a big fan of it. However, the last few weeks when i've been using it on a daily basis. I've been some what disappointed with it and i've kind of lost my love for it? I don't feel that it works as good as what I need it to. 

When I apply it to my dry lips. It sort of instantly makes them feel smooth and soft and completely normal, but then about an hour later after its worn of my lips they start to feel as if they are getting dry again. 

I will probably carry on using this until I finish it, because I HATE wasting products too. But once I'm getting to the end of it I will think about purchasing something else within the lip balm department. 

What Lip balms would you recommend?

That spring time feeling :)

Hello Everyone :) 



Primark tights
Zara bag (old)
Hope your all okay :) In the last outfit post I did, I mentioned that I had taken a trip to New Look and brought a few pieces. I found this dress which I thought was an absolute bargain. The pictures don't do it justice (I was in a rush taking them so apologies for that! *bad blogger, slaps wrist*) Anyway its a lovely corally/pinky colour which I absolutely love and is perfect for spring! You can't really see in the picture but it has some gold zips which I think add a more sophisticated feel to the dress. 

I wore this dress with THESE black boots from BOOHOO which I'm completely in love with. They are so comfy and the perfect height. When the weather gets a bit warmer here in the UK I would obviously get my legs out instead of wearing tights and I would probably wear sandals instead of boots. 

At the moment I'm trying to get out of wearing disco pants and a top/jumper all the time. And jazz up my wardrobe a little bit by buying more dresses. I always have to wear something that is comfy I don't think there is anything worse than not being comfy in clothing, so I guess thats why I go for the easy option of leggings/disco pants and a top/jumper... But I'm being WILD and wearing more dresses at the moment... So look out for more outfit posts where I am NOT wearing disco pants/leggings and a comfy top! 

Is there anything that you have brought recently that you thought was a complete bargain? Leave the links below!

Race for life.

Hello everyone! 

Hope you are all well. This is an unusual blog post and is going to be quite a short one. 3 years a go on Monday (just gone) I sadly lost my Grandma who was suffering from stomach cancer. Because of this, I am participating in race for life. I am SO unfit, so this is definitely going to be a challenge for me. If any of you want to sponsor me then I will leave the link below to my Just Giving page. Any donation will be greatly appreciated. 

As I start training for it I will probably start to do more healthy recipe ideas for you all and my training routine :) Let me know what you think! Are any of you doing race for life this year or have you done it?

New Look :)

Hello Everyone! 

I know what your all thinking.. Where the hell have I been? If you've been following my blog for a while you will know that I am in my third year of uni! If you didn't know before you do now :) well anyway... How can I describe third year? Work work & more work. (Don't worry I have been going out too) But I haven't really brought anything new or been trying any new products.. BUT I went out this evening with my Mum for a cute little meal & I took a picture of what I was wearing so I thought I would blog about it...



Yes I did take the pictures on my phone instead of my Nikon. So I'm extremely sorry about the quality (and my odd socks! Do any of you wear odd socks or is it just me?) Anyway.. A few weeks ago when I popped into town with my friend she needed to take some stuff back to New Look. I've never really been a fan of New Look due to never finding things that I like in there, however, I found THIS top, for £9.99 which I thought was a complete bargain! Its so comfy and its just something you can wear for a casual look or if you wanted to dress it up a bit then you can wear it with disco pants and heels for a more comfy evening look.

When I was in New Look they also had some other nice items, however I had to resist.. But I might of brought a dress which Im completely in love with, so expect another outfit post quite soon. I teamed the top above with my urban outfitters disco pants. River Island cut out boots and my Zara bag for a casual evening look. :) 

What have you been up to? What clothes have you recently brought?
