Guide to Eurovision!

Hi Guys, 

Tonight is my favourite night of the year: Eurovision! The continental competition which everybody loves to laugh at. If you are a Eurovish newbie then here are my handiest facts to help you get through the four hours of pure madness!

1) You don't have to be in Europe to compete- Although Euro is in the title, pretty much anyone is allowed in. Israel has been competing since 1973 and Australia joined the pyrotechnic wonderland two years ago for it’s 60th birthday.

2) Nobody else can hear Graham Norton- It's his sarcastic comments which make the program. I honestly couldn't imagine anyone else doing the voice over (though my dad assures me that Terry Wogan was hilarious). The contestants are usually entertaining but Norton's costume insults just add to the hilarity.

3) Everybody votes for their friends- Just think of it like a vote at school: basically a popularity contest. The song could be fantastic but unless your country is near to a big group there is a 1 in 100 chance of you winning! Unfortunately for us, being an island means we have no neighbours but don't worry...

4) The United Kingdom is usually somewhere near the bottom-Let's hope that this year is different! Joe and Jake have actually done a great song this year. The tune is pretty catchy and it was voted for by the public so we know it can grab people's attention. We even have the coveted penultimate slot! I for one don't think we'll be receiving nul points!

I really hope you enjoyed this post. Tell me in the comment’s what you’re plans for tonight are and if you will be watching. Don’t forget to add me to your circles on Google + if you want to read more!

Thanks for Reading

My Christmas Gift Guide!!

Hi Guys,

Welcome to the first of my Christmas posts! I'm already ridiculously excited and there is still 29 days to go! Today I'm going to be giving my gift suggestions for anyone who needs help with their gift giving. Obviously, Christmas isn't all about the presents but it's always nice to give someone a gift that you know they will love! That was a super long intro so lets get into the actual post!

£5 or less...

1) Sleek Mini Matte Me 4 set: I have this on my list because this set looks amazing! For anyone who doesn't know, liquid lipsticks are meant to be the next 'thing' (Thanks to Kylie Jenner) so these are perfect for the makeup lover in your life! The only thing I will say is that they have been sold out online and are impossible to find in store. Let's just hope that they get restocked soon!

2)Impulse Body Spray Mini Cracker Gift Set- Rock and Love, Why Not and Very Pink are all included in this adorable set. The best part about it is that it is cu…

What you Need For Back to School...

It's already this time of year again; obviously I'm thrilled. Of course this is the best part of summer with the perpetual worrying about getting the 'wrong' thing and all of the consideration you have to put into making sure your bag won't clash with your face. I mean, maybe that's not what you're thinking, but now you are, right? Is your backpack the wrong colour for you? I can't confirm it isn't, but I can guarantee that these items are all cute as hell.

Bags:
VANS Snoopy Backpack- Currently, this back pack is sat in my wardrobe, waiting for the sixth of September. I saw it when I was in Cornwall and fell in love with it so ordered it as soon as I got home. My bag was VANS last year and was so well made (there's even a secret pocket)! This one is a dark navy with little drawings of skateboarding Snoopy all around. I've loved Snoopy since I was little and this is just a nice homage to him!
Michael Kors Over the Shoulder- I have never been mor…
