Baby Names That I Love But Won’t Be Using

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

Now, this is a trend that has been sweeping Youtube lately, and a trend that I absolutely love! All of the videos have given me so many ideas for possible baby names, so I thought why not make a blog post out of it?!

But, as someone who doesn’t really like their name, I am determined to give my children good names so here goes…

  1. Zack

I absolutely love the name Zack and have done for a really long time. But, that’s my fiancé’s name, and having two Zack’s around who be supeeeer confusing. We will probably use it as a middle name though.

2. Willow

Spring Bucket List

I loved creating my Winter Bucket List so much that I’ve decided to do another one for Spring! So this post is basically a list of all of the things I want to do this spring…

  • Go on more walks
  • Drink more water
  • Create another look book
  • Go on a small getaway (we’ve actually already booked centre parcs and I’m excited)
  • Spend more time with my family (whilst I’m off uni for Easter)
  • Create another photo diary
  • Read more for pleasure
  • Start making diffused water again!
  • Start a YouTube Channel (???)
  • Buy a blogging camera!
  • Do more things with Z that cost less money
  • Listen to music more often
  • Study hard for my summer exams
  • Try to be more eco-friendly
  • Produce better blog content, although I always strive to achieve this!
  • Have fun more and worry less
  • Do a shift at work that I know is going to be hard, instead of putting it off.


And that’s all for this spring!

Thanks for reading!

Would You Rather Beauty Tag!

Ok, so I am not specifically a beauty blogger,  but I am a self-confessed make-up addict. So I’ve decided to do the would you rather beauty tag! Here we go..

1.Would you rather go out with messy hair and nice make-up or Nice hair and no make-up? oooh messy hair and nice make up- I’m rubbish at hair styling anyway!

2.Would you rather shave your eyebrows or have your eyelashes fall out? Eyebrows.. If they fell out I would get them tattooed and that could be cool!

3.Would you rather be forced to shop at only MAC or Benefit for the rest of your life? Ok, so I don’t actually own anything MAC because I just don’t seem to be excited by it, and I use benefit daily, so definitely benefit!

4.Would you rather wear lipgloss/lipliner look or 80’s perm? Oooh a perm could be fun!

5.Would you rather leave the house with an obvious foundation line or overdone blush? Blush.. rather look warm then look like an oompa loompa!

7.Would you rather have a bad orange-y spray tan or really weird tan lines that can’t be covered? Bad orange spraytan, like the one I had for prom, lol.

8.Would you rather have a bad haircut or bad hair colour? Hair cut.. I could always hide the bad trim with a cool hairstyle (not done by me).

9.Would you rather have youtube or twitter taken away forever? I think I’d have to sacrifice my twitter… I love youtube too much!

10. Would you rather give up using makeup brushes or mascara? make up brushes! Sponges can be cool too 😉

 

As always, thanks for reading!

The Autumn Tag

Hello there! According to Google, it has officially been Autumn since the 22nd of September, so it’s my favourite season! Whilst I was searching for Autumn themed blog post inspiration, I came across this tag from Naomi Talks Beauty and, seen as I know so many of you like tags, I thought I’d answer!

Ok, here goes..

For Autumn what is your…

Favourite thing about it? I love the colours of Autumn and the fact that everything falls off and begins anew. Like my favourite Gatsby quote ‘Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall’. I like the idea of new beginnings, and I also love an excuse to sport a berry lip every day!

Favourite drink? Hmm I feel like Autumn is the time when I begin to love tea again so I’m going to say tea.

Favourite candle? Definitely Rhubarb Crumble from Yankee Candle this year, I just love it!

Best Lipstick? Rimmel Lasting Finish By Kate Shade 30.

Go to moisturiser?  I don’t use one, oops.

Go to colours for the eyes?  Gold shimmers with a matte brown contour, usually from my Make Up Revolution Flawless Palette.

Favourite band or singer? Do people change their song choices with the different seasons? I don’t think I really have a favourite band or singer, I sort of just like the odd songs, I always love Bieber though and Jess Glynne too.

Favourite outfit to wear? Lots of oversized jumpers and scarves! (But not all at once).

Autumn treat? Gotta be Gingerbread.. I feel like it becomes acceptable to eat gingerbread in Autumn.

Favourite place to be? Snuggled up with my boyfriend watching Halloween movies!

 

Thanks for reading! Feel free to share this tag and do it on your own blog/in the comments/ wherever else you may wish!

Love,
