My 2016 Favourites!

Hi Guys,

Welcome to my 2016 favourites! It's been 21 days since last year, but it feels like only yesterday that I was counting down the seconds. In the world of politics, celebrities and, well, pretty much everything last year wasn't too great! Personally, my 2016 was quite good! There were a lot of things I loved throughout the year but I've condensed this post into just nine . If you look back through the archives, most of these things will probably have been mentioned, but I thought I'd put them all together! After that very long intro, let's get started...

  • Cosmopolitan- Before this year, I would really only read Vogue. That was literally the snobbiest sentence ever but it's true! Then, in Mayish, I picked up Cosmopolitan and absolutely loved it! The articles are fantastic; they write for the average person; Inge the beauty editor is sooo nice (I met her at Clothes Show and it was fantastic!). Seriously, just pick up a copy!
  • Prison Break- Moving straight on to something completely different! This show is incredible! I only started watching because Wenworth Miller was in it but I'm so glad I did. Although it's extremely violent, there is still a plot which is great; in programmes like that it can sometimes get lost. Just like Cosmo, I cannot recommend this highly enough! 
  • Instagram- I started an Instagram account for my blog! I feel like I talk about this every week but go and follow me. I'm trying really hard this year... I have a theme and everything!
  • Nakd Bars- The Coco Nakd Bars are incredible! I never really though I'd like them but they are fantastic. They taste great but are actually healthy. It might be an acquired taste, to be honest. I think it's just normal chocolate but a couple of people have described it as tasting like grass! 
  • Nomination Bracelet- My Nomination Bracelet has really filled up this year. I have six charms and all of them have an individual meaning. That is one of the main reasons I like it: it is so personal! Nobody's bracelet is the same which gives them a really unique twist. I hope that in 2017 I'll be able to fill mine.
  • OGX Argan Oil- I have super curly hair and this has helped to make it 10000 times less frizzy. I recently spoke about this in a post, so I'll link that. If you don't have enough time to read it, the gist was: it's AMAZING!
  • Believers Never Die by Fall Out Boy- Possibly my favourite album ever. I was never into Fall Out Boy until early spring. I listened to this album and fell in love with their sound. At the time the album came out, this music was revolutionary and it's changed my whole opinion on pop/rock. My favourite song in this album is 'What a Catch, Donnie' but my favourite FOB song ever is 'Uma Thurman'.
  • The Pretty Little Liars Book Series- The only reason I bought these books is because I didn't have Netflix and wanted to know what all of the hype was about. I found out through this series! They are well written, hilarious and just an easy read. I actually watched the first couple of episodes of PLL and couldn't get into it. Never mind, I've always got the other 3 book arcs to read!
  • Converse- Words cannot do justice to how much I love these shoes. I've gone through about 3 pairs and loved every single one. I'm currently obsessed with the rose gold ones I got for my birthday. They are soooo pretty! And super comfortable. Again, go and get yourself a pair!
So that is the end! Congratulations, if you reached this point! That took some commitment. If you got here leave a comment and don't forget to add me to your circles on Google +. With that said, have a great day and come back next week if you'd like to read more!

Thanks for Reading

A Collection of Failures Through February...

I don't really know if what a clumsy and awkward person I am has been documented enough. Through inference, I feel like it's been made evident. I've mentioned a few of the embarrassing little moments that I've had throughout my monthly's but you are wrong if you think that's it. My life is not just a collection of one off encounters with shame: it's basically a book. A solid 75% of February had been comprised of making a fool of myself, overall. So, here I am, admitting to that fact, and hoping that these stories will make you feel a little bit better about yourself...

The Onion Incident- Okay, I feel like this dramatic title has really pulled you in! Our story begins on a Thursday morning, during half term. I was going to go out to print some photos for my scrap book but my mum asked if I'd go and get her two carrots, an onion and a bag of potatoes. A strangely specific list- I know- but I just accepted it and went off on my journey. I printed my photos…

Why I Hate Rom Coms...

Contrary to what the title would have you believe, romance is my favourite genre of film. I'd say that the first real rom com I watched was 'Pretty Woman' and my obsession had grown since then. However, no matter have much I adore them, I have some issues with the category. Pretty much everyone romance film includes one of these tropes; they wouldn't be a trope if they didn't!

First of all is rain. I have no problem with the weather: light drizzle is actually my favourite weather (I find it really therapeutic to see it bouncing off of an umbrella, okay?!?) but the rain you get in rom coms is next level. It's thunderstorm level of soak, yet nobody seems to have seen the forecast! Surely if that much rain was predicted, one of these people would be wearing a raincoat? It actually doesn't seem to have any kind of effect on the characters, so their lack of preparation isn't an issue. If I'm getting rained on I'm shivery, have stringy curls all over m…
