Wishlist Mid-Week #3 Chi Chi Edition ♥


Here are a few beautiful dresses that I'd love to purchase for a special occasion. I hope you like this post and if you own any of these products or own any of the dresses I'd love to know how they looked on you please leave a comment down below!! 

From left to right 
Chi Chi Paris Dress £43.99
This dress is absolutely gorgeous and is perfect for a evening cocktail party or just a normal party. It's exactly the same to the Megan dress but in different colour I really love it and it would also be a great date dress. 

Chi Chi Renesmee Dress £64.99
This dress reminds of a Parisian princess it is so eye capturing and beautiful. I would love to wear this to a wedding as it's also a unique dress with a lovely pattern on it. I also love the length of it as it's quite flattering and not too short.

Chi Chi Madison Dress £54.99
This Madison dress is really flattering around your waist line because it pulls it in and makes it look great. I also think this would be perfect to wear during the day because it doesn't look as formal as some of the other dresses. 

Chi Chi Megan Dress £34.99 was £43.99
This dress is perfect for a day date as the colour of it would suite more during the day. I think that it would be a great outfit to wear to a wedding also because it's not out there so you're defiantly not going to upstage the bride but you might turn some heads because I'm sure you'll look absolutely beautiful.

I hope you liked my not so mid-week wishlist I'd really like to purchase some of these items. Keep a look out for next weeks wishlist which will go up every Wednesday.

#2014BloggerChallenge No.7


For the seventh post of #2014bloggerchallenge we have been asked to share with you some of the photos that we have taken whether it be a photo diary or just some photos from your Instagram.

For the #2014bloggerchallenge you have to write a blog post twice a month which will be about different topics. all the posts will go live during the 1st and 3rd weeks of each month. The topics are there to give you new ideas and encourage you to write about things you wouldn't normally write about. 
















So as you guys can see from these photos I went to the Harry Potter Studios back in May 2012. I had a really amazing time as it was a present for my 15th birthday. Although it was quite an expensive day out it was defiantly worth it. I found it so interesting how the Harry Potter movies were created and developed over time with the help of various special effects. I don't want to go into too much detail about the studios as some of you guys might not have gone and I don't want to ruin it for you guys!!

Reasons to go to the Harry Potter Studios:
- It's family friendly
- The butter beer is delicious!!
- You feel surrounded by magic
- It's exciting 
- In my opinion it's different than the usual cinema or restaurant outing

Wishlist Mid-Week #2


Here are a few products/clothes that I'd love to purchase however I'm pretty broke at the moment so a wishlist is just as good. I hope you like this post and if you have tried out any of these products or own any of the items of clothing I'd love to know please leave a comment down below!! 

Seeing as we're fast approaching the Summer month a BB cream is a must. I've heard a lot about the Garnier BB Cream and I'd love to try it out for myself. I don't often wear make-up however I think that a BB Cream would be useful to me when I go on holiday because it's not as heavy as a foundation. 

Recently I've been wearing my boyfriends jumper a lot which is a lot like this grey one but it's dark blue. I find them extremely comfortable and cosy especially when the weather is not quite hot enough to not wear a jumper yet. I especially love to wear these kinds of jumpers with leggings and boots because it's just such a comfy outfit. It's a great outfit to wear when you're travelling. 

I personally think necessary items of clothing like this maxi skirt are such gems in their own ways. This is because you can either dress them up or down depending on what you're going to be doing. I love items of clothing like this skirt because they're really flattering and fit you in all of the right places. I'm defiantly going to be purchasing some maxi skirts over the summer. 

These past few weeks I've been staying up later and later due to coursework and revision. This has taken a significant toll on my poor old eyes which are now showing signs of tiredness and stress. I think a product like this could help to bring back some life under my eyes and not make me look like a person who is sick. 

I really like this line of make-up brushes mainly because they're produced by one of my favorite Youtubers sisters but also because they're very reasonable and of a high quality. I'd love to purchase the stippling brush as I've heard it's amazing at applying foundation it apparently leaves you with a flawless look. 

I'm useless at cleansing my face daily and most of the products that I buy sit on my shelf in the bathroom. However I think that if I purchased these cleansing pads I'd actually remember to use them because it's much less effort than actually having to wash your face etc..I also think that for the price that they are at the moment it's a great deal considering they're all sold out in Superdrug they must be brilliant??!

I hope you liked my not so mid-week wishlist I'd really like to purchase some of these items. Keep a look out for next weeks wishlist which will go up every Wednesday.

Throwback Thursday...


Seeing as I haven't posted in a few days I've decided to share with you on this lovely evening some snapshots of my life. I thought that I would do a "Throwback Thursday" style collage and talk you through each one. 

Top Left - This was taken in 2009 when me & my family along with one of my best friends went to Portugal for a Summer holiday. It was an absolutely brilliant holiday and so many memories were made throughout the week that we were out there. I love this view because it's so breathtaking the whole of the hotel has amazing views of the beach and sea. Imagine waking up to this view every morning you'd feel so blessed and inspired to have a good day!!

Top Middle - This was taken last Winter around Christmas time at Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park London. Each year during the Winter season an amazing theme park sort of attraction plots itself in Hyde Park near Hyde Park Corner it's filled with amazing food, drinks & rides. I love going there each year because it really gets you into that Christmas spirit. 

Top Right - This was taken last summer in my dads garden when my dogs were no doubt getting up to some sort of mischievous things. They're becoming quite funny as each week they tend to get up to something or the other. I love them so much and can't quite imagine life without them sometimes they do horrible things like bring in something dead which isn't nice. However you tend to overlook these things and just love them because they're crazy and so lovable.  

Middle Left - This was taken last year around March time when I took a trip to Covent Garden which I have to say is such a fun and exciting place to spend an afternoon. If you're ever in London then defiantly go and check out Covent Garden because it's a real gem. There's often quite a few street artists who always brighten up your day not to mention all of the great restaurants and shops.

Middle - This was taken a couple of years ago when I took a trip to the Harry Potter Studios here in the UK. I absolutely loved it as I'm a fan of the old Harry Potter movies. It was so interesting to see how they made the movies and all of the props that went with it. It's a great day out with the family as the staff there are very family friendly. 

Middle Right - This is a photo taken on the night of my school prom back in 2012. I can remember this photo being taken like it was yesterday me & my best friend whose in the photo with me had an amazing night. Some advice for all of you who haven't had your proms yet make the most of it from the moment you wake up on prom day to the moment you sleep. Also take bucket loads of photos to remember the night I kind of wish I took more but hey ho!!

Bottom Left - Again featuring my beautiful best friend this photo was taken on one of our first outings together. We were in a shop with her mum who was taking a little longer than normal to shop (we've all done it before). It was a hot day and we were pretty bored so what do you do? Take a photo!! I'm so glad that we did because now we have about 10 different memories from this day that we can both remember from this one photo. 

Bottom Middle - I love this photo as it was taken in Lille in the North of France. I went there in November 2012 with my Sixth Form for a language trip. It was such a great day out despite all of the travelling we all had a lovely time. I do love a bit of French architecture I think that some of the buildings in France are so beautiful and should be snapped up like this photo so that you can remember how beautiful they were.  

Bottom Right - This last photo was taken at the Harry Potter Studios I wonder if anyone recognizes it? Yes it is indeed Number 4 Privet Drive which is featured in most of the Harry Potter movies. I was lucky enough to take a photo right outside of it which is at the Studio lot. I loved the fact that it's a life size house and isn't just a cardboard box cut out!!

#2014BloggerChallenge No.6


For the sixth post of #2014bloggerchallenge we have been asked to write about anything to do with food whether it be a what I eat post, healthy food or just something related to food. 

For the #2014bloggerchallenge you have to write a blog post twice a month which will be about different topics. all the posts will go live during the 1st and 3rd weeks of each month. The topics are there to give you new ideas and encourage you to write about things you wouldn't normally write about. 

http://sortedfood.com



So I've recently come across Sorted Food who are "a bunch of mates who are out to prove that you can have a bit of fun in the kitchen - cooking doesn't have to be serious!" I really love this whole idea of cooking which doesn't have to be serious which I believe is a 100% true. 

I love to cook & I believe that it should be fun as well making food should be an experience not a chore!! I know that some people feel like cooking is a boring thing which you have to do each day. By coming across Sorted I've discovered new delicious & fun recipes to try out and I can't wait to try more of their food out in the future. I've decided to include some of my favorite recipes within this blog post to share with you guys.


Creme  Egg Chocolate Brownies


Crispy Peaking Duck Pancakes



Burrito Recipe


Special Fried Rice


Chocolate Swirl Slabs

So those are just a few recipes that I adore from them I find the way that they are portrayed on YouTube are so easy even for someone who's never cooked before. First of all the recipes for all of their dishes are on their website so that you can get all the correct measurements. Secondly the guys take you through each step which means that it's easy for you to follow. 

Last of all they usually turn out great because you get so much help both from their website and from them on their videos. I love the Sorted Food guys because they're quite cute and I'd love to keep making their dishes because they come up with some really unique and amazing ideas!!

My 100th Post ♥


Wow I've managed to write 100 posts I never thought I'd get this far considering I gave up my first ever blog after a month. I'm so proud of myself for carrying on with this one as it's opened many doors for me & I'm sure it will continue to open many more. I've reached so many goals that I'd set myself and also ones I never thought that I had here's a few..

- I've reached 50 followers on my blog
- I've reached 100 views
- I have 100 followers on Bloglovin 
- I've reached over 100 views on my YouTube
- I cannot believe I've managed to reach over 10,000 views on my blog (a goal I never thought I would be able to reach)
- I've been asked to review a product by a company (That's just crazy)

I guess I'd just like to say a massive Thank You to all of you who read my blog or watch my Youtube videos. Each and every one of you have helped my blog grow without you guys non of this would of ever been possible. This whole internet world for me is a big team effort because I write posts & produce videos for you guys and you guys read & watch them. Without one or the other the whole thing wouldn't work on their own as well as they do together. 

If I have one piece of advice for all of you bloggers who are just starting out or have been blogging for a long time and you're not quite seeing the results that you wanted KEEP ON GOING!! If you stop then you'll regret it like I did when I shut down my first blog which is why I started this blog. 

I'm so glad that I decided to start writing a blog again because it's honestly one of the best things about my life. I love having a place on the internet to talk about whatever. I love how bloggers all stick together and support one another through thick and thin.

#2014BloggerChallenge No.5


For the fifth post of #2014bloggerchallenge we have been asked to write about anything to do with nails whether it be a nail tutorial or a nail polish wishlist. I've decided to share with you some Easter nail ideas which I really like if you guys have re-created any of these please send me a photo :)

For the #2014bloggerchallenge you have to write a blog post twice a month which will be about different topics. all the posts will go live during the 1st and 3rd weeks of each month. The topics are there to give you new ideas and encourage you to write about things you wouldn't normally write about. 


One of my goals this year is to learn how to do different types of nail art. I'd love to be able to do some of the nail ideas which are shown above because I think that they would look so lovely & pretty. I do think that they would take a lot of time to do & to learn how to do because you need to have patience for a start. I would also love to be able to just paint my nails neatly instead of messily. I find that I'm able to paint my nails however I do rely on hot water to scrub all of my extra paint which is all around the sides of my nails by now...

Katie's 11 questions 
What do you aspire to be later in life?
I don't have any particular aspirations however I'd love to be a great role model for someone. If someone ever said to me "I did this because you inspired me" I'd be really amazed and overwhelmed. 

Where in the world would you like to live?
There are so many places that I'd like to live in the world and I hope in the future I get to live in many of these places such as LA, New York, Hong Kong, Thailand, Spain etc..

Your favourite quality about yourself and why?
I have to say I love how relaxed I am about certain situations because I just let it all unfold instead of telling people to do this and do that. Sometimes in life taking a backseat is just as good as being the leader.

Who inspired you to do start a blog?/Why did you start blogging?
I think that either Zoella or Sprinkle Of Glitter inspired me because they're just such great role models they both come from normal backgrounds and then they worked hard to become successful. I loved both of their blogs and thought to myself hey I could try this out and so I did now look where I am.

When did you start blogging?
I started blogging in October 2013

What secret talent do you have?
I actually have no secret talents which is pretty boring I guess?

Beauty item you could never live without?
I think it would probably have to be lip balm because I hate it when my lips are all dry and sore!!

Do you prefer a CASUAL style or FORMAL style?
This is a hard question!! I really love dressing up on a night out or for a party however I also love just relaxing at home in my casual clothes which are all comfy.

What's your favourite thing about blogging?
I'd probably say my favourite thing is seeing the response from you guys because some people say amazing things to me which really make me smile.

What is your WORST pet peeve?
I hate it when people read your message and then don't reply back I'm just like arghhh!!

Do you prefer photos, videos or text when it comes to blogging?
I love all three to be honest I love photos because you have something visual to look at whereas text allows you to express your feelings but videos allow a person to see the real you.

1) If you could be in a movie which one would you want to be in and why?
2) Favorite song at the moment?
3) What do you like about blogging?

Wishlist Mid-Week #1


So seeing as I have hardly any time anymore I've decided that not blogging at all would be awful for both you guys & me too because I love blogging. Instead I'll still be blogging over these next couple of weeks but only around twice a week instead of five times & only short simple posts which take up less time to write than my other posts. I'm still hoping that with these short posts that I can keep up the quality that I have been producing over the last few months.

As some of you guys may know I've done lots of various series on my blog such as the Halloween, Christmas & Valentines ones. I've decided to start a new one which is the Mid-week Wishlist series this series is perfect for me because these posts are usually short-medium length. I also love reading these series on other peoples blogs because it's nice to see all the products that people wish to have & their reasons for wanting them.

I'd really love to purchase this T-Shirt because it's so simple and you can pair it up with almost anything. Whether it be a nice simple black skater skirt or skinny jeans both would look lovely. 

I'm not usually a fan of patterned clothing however I'd really love to own a pair of these trousers. Firstly because they're black and white therefore they're not so crazy on the colour front. Secondly because I think that they would look rather flattering because they're a slim fit and would look great with a plain white top and a black blazer with court shoes. 

I'd like to purchase this but not for the reason stated!! I think that it would be a great jewellery stand instead of a cake stand. It's unique compared to other people's jewellery storage and I love the colour of it. Mint green is one of my favorite colours I think that it represents calm and peace in my mind. 

This is one of the products in this wishlist which has been hyped up so much within the blogging world. Whether they're good or not who knows certainly not me as I don't own a single one!! However the majority of people seem to love them which is why I'd love to purchase one.

Once again this is another product that took the blogging world by storm. Many say that it's a cheaper than Bioderma which has recently come to the UK. I love how big the bottle is for the price which is huge compared to the big Bioderma bottles which cost a fortune. 

As a fan of Tanya Burr I'm yet to purchase any of her products which is pretty bad I guess? However I'm loving the look of her lip gloss's especially the "Picnic In The Park" which is a great colour for Spring/early summer. I'd also love to purchase some of her nail polishes. 

I mainly want to purchase this mascara because of the packaging it's just so pretty. I've also heard a lot of good things about Max Factor mascara's which I have yet to purchase any of!! I personally think that you can never have too many mascara's as I love to use more than one at a time. 

My final product on my mid-week wishlist is the Duck Models Own Nail Polish which is in a Eggshell texture. I really love the look of these especially as Easter is fast approaching. I really love Easter mainly because I love getting lots of chocolate. I think that I might just want to eat my nails? Because they remind me of mini-eggs which are so delicious I could eat a whole packet now (craves mini-eggs)!! 

I hope you liked my mid-week wishlist I'd really like to purchase some of these items. Keep a look out for next weeks wishlist which will go up every Wednesday.
