March Favourites

I'm sure favourites time comes round quicker and quicker every month! Favourites time also means payday time so it's definitely welcome!

This month I have been loving a selection of new products and forgotten favourites. First up is Philosophy's Granny's Apple Pie shower gel, which I picked up in the Boots Christmas sale. I like to use up my products before I start trying anything else and have been using Lush's Snow Fairy shower gel since Christmas but I was really excited to use this. It really does smell like apple pie and I love getting faint whiffs of it during the day. It's the perfect way to pick up me up in the morning as I am not a morning person!

Next up is Rimmel's Match Perfection Foundation in Ivory. I've been searching for a new foundation since my Benefit Hello Flawless ran out a few weeks ago and I couldn't afford to repurchase it. I picked this up in my latest Boots 3 for 2 haul and am quite impressed with it so far, it's light but gives great coverage. It's definitely far better that the L'Oreal one I picked up before it which I didn't get on with at all!

This month's saviour has been my Ginger & Co Hand It To Me hand cream. Since I started my new aerial fitness class my hands have become very sore from grabbing onto the hoop and pulling myself up. I've got blisters just underneath all my fingers on both hands so using this every day has definitely helped make my hands feel soft and smooth again!

This month's polish of choice has been Essie's Mint Candy Apple, which has popped up in several posts recently. It's the perfect spring colour, I love how it applies and it lasts several days without chipping (as long as you do minimal washing up!)

  Finally, I have rediscovered my love for Sleek's Mirrored Pink Blush after having a make up spring clean session. I had completely forgotten I had it and have been using it every day since it made it's way back into my make up bag. It's very pigmented and I have to be careful not to use too much and end up looking like a rosy cheeked doll but its got amazing staying power!

 What are your favourites this month? Have you tried any of mine?

This Week I...#13

Happy Mother's Day to my wonderful Mum and to all the other lovely mummies out there! Today I am going to visit my Mum at my sisters house and have a nice afternoon tea!

This week has been a busy one for me which started off with Bradley and I being offered tickets to be in the audience for the quiz show Pointless! I have a post coming up on my experience soon but I had a lovely time and can't wait to watch out for myself on TV!

I went out to the pub on Friday after work with my work colleagues and had a nice pub meal and then headed to my parents house to stay the night as my hairdresser was coming to cut my hair early Saturday morning. I love waking up at my parents house, it's so quiet compared to where I live (I have a bus route right outside my house) At night you can hear owls and foxes and the view I wake up to in the morning is amazing!

This week on the blog I have been giving my make up a little make over, I've switched to spring products including Essie's Mint Candy Apple polish and MAC's Baking Beauties Pink Buttercream powder. I've really enjoyed rediscovering old products like the MAC powder and have decided I'm going to invest in some Ikea Alex drawers to organise my make up better.

MAC Baking Beauties: Face Powder

I bought this waaay back in May last year when I took a trip to London with Jaye and in all honesty the reason I haven't used it is because it just looks too lovely to ruin! Just look at it, it's beautiful!

I'm currently on a sort of spending ban, I'm trying to not buy any unnecessary products and trying to use up ones I have already bought. I've had a big clear out of my make up drawers and my work colleagues were extremely happy when I presented them with a box full of goodies and told them they could pick what they wanted! They weren't able to get their hands on this though!

I'm a sucker for pretty, girly, pastel shades so I was drawn to this like a moth to a flame. Priced at £21.50 its not something that I would repurchase often, I'm definitely a high street kinda gal but every now and then I see a product that I just can't resist! Rest assured this is going to last me a very long time!

 It's encased in the traditional black MAC packaging, from the under side you wouldn't think it much to look at but turn it over and you have a beauty!

As you can see from the above photo its a lovely little highlighter which I am currently using at the top of my cheeks and any other area I want to accentuate. The colours all mix together to create the pearly pink colour you can see on my fingers. It lasts most of a working day without needing retouching, a long way from the MUA highlighter I was using before!

I thought it was a very apt product for spring and it looks so lovely in my make up bag.

Did you buy anything from the Baking Beauties collection?

Essie | Mint Candy Apple

Oh Essie, you can do me no wrong...apart from maybe the price *cue hubby saying when we got to the till - how much was that nail varnish?? Me - Don't worry, it was in the three for two! So it's basically free!* Better go on my own next time!

Surprisingly this is only the third full price Essie nail polish I have actually bought (excluding two I've purchased from Fragrance Direct and gifts I've received from family which extends my collection slightly).

I love the pretty little bottle design, the size of the brush and the quality of the polish. I hate it when I've bought cheap polish in the past that's just come out like water - which is why I now don't waste my time buying cheap polish and just stick to the good stuff!

Onto the colour, it's the perfect spring shade, it looks so fresh, pretty and feminine. I'm trying to ditch all the dark, black clothes out of my wardrobe this spring (okay, they'll just stay in my suitcase until winter again) and Mint Candy Apple is the perfect acompaniment to my light cream pieces.

What do you think to Mint Candy Apple?

Spring Makeup

With Spring comes a little change in my make up products. I love to switch to softer, more feminine pastel shades instead of my usual, darker, berry tones. Here's a peek into what's been in my make up bag this month...

I'm still loving HealGel Face as my daily moisturiser, its really light and dissolves quickly into the skin so I don't have to wait around for ages before I can apply the rest of my make up.

I have a new primer addition to my make up bag in the form of L'Oreal's Skin Perfection Magic Touch Instant Blur (bit of a mouthful!). I won't go into too much detail about this as there is a post coming up soon but I picked this up because I wasn't about to get hold of any MUA Matte Perfect Primer in my local Superdrug.

Foundation wise I'm giving Rimmel's Stay Matte foundation in Ivory a go. I recently picked this up in a 3 for 2 at Boots because the L'Oreal foundation I bought to replace my Benefit Hello Flawless foundation I didn't like. I'm beginning to think that the amount of money I have spent trying to find a new foundation I might as well have just repurchased the Hello Flawless!

I've picked up a new powder for the spring time in the form of Rimmel's Stay Matte Powder in Pink Blossom. It's got a very subtle pinky hue which I think gives me a little bit more of a spring glow.

Now that I have the Naked 3 palette I fully intend to get a lot of use out of it. The pink and gold shades are perfect for the spring season.

A forgotten favourite, buried at the bottom of one of my make up drawers is my Topshop Blush in the shade Morning Dew. It's a cream formula which turns to a powder when applied to the face. The shade looks quite bright in the pan but once applied it creates a lovely pink glow.

My nail polish of choice this month is Essie's Mint Candy Apple polish which I picked up in my Boots 3 for 2 haul last week. This shade is perfect for spring!

The only thing I seem to be missing in my spring make up bag is a mascara. I love my Benefit Bad Gal Mascara but feel that this is a little bit too heavy for my spring make up bag. 

What mascara do you wear in the springtime? Can you suggest anything a bit more natural looking?

This Week I...#12

It's been another quiet week in Impatience world, I've been working late shifts again which means that I'm usually too lazy to get up in the mornings before work and do anything and too tired to do anything when I get home. As you can see from the photo at the top, I took part in the Cancer Research UK #nomakeupselfie campaign. Sorry for the awful photo, it was taken on my phone camera! Apparently Cancer Research UK have no idea where the idea came from but fully support it as it has raised over two million pounds for the cause. 

This week on the blog I took part in the Make Up Mishaps Tag, created by Becca, if you haven't tried it I recommend giving it a go! Also I talked about my recent 3 for 2 Boots purchases. I hate that the offer is over now as I have thought of so many more things I wanted to buy! Probably a good thing I didn't though! I also created my March spring wishlist full of pretty pastel products!

I've also started sporting spring pastel nails as the weather has decided to pick up a bit! I also found out the other day that I won a giveaway on Carly's blog and won the new Ciate Dolls House Nail Collection and I can't wait to try it!

Three For Two...

I love 3 for 2 time at Boots I guess it makes you feel less guilty about spending as you're getting something for free right? 

Last week I took a little trip to my local Boots with a few things in mind that I wanted to buy and a few more things may have accidently (on purpose) made their way into my basket...

The main item on my shopping list was hair dye. I always use John Frieda Precision Foam Colour. I love the way it applies to my hair, the mousse formula ensures great coverage and I love the little conditioner that comes with it, it makes my hair so soft and silky!

I also picked up some Biore Pore Strips. I always get these when they are on 3 for 2 as they are really expensive at £7.99 for six but they're the only ones I find that work on my skin.

At the top of the photo you can just see the Botanics Facial Loofahs. These are really good for getting rid of dead skill cells on the face and making your face really smooth. The last time I bought these they came in a pack of 5 but they're now a pack of 2 :(

The No7 Melting Gel Cleanser is a repurchase because I had a £5 No7 voucher to spend at Boots which was burning a hole in my pocket! I had just run out of this so it came at the perfect time. It cost £4.50 instead of the usual £9.50.

Onto the make up purchases, firstly I picked up Essie's Mint Candy Apple polish, it's the perfect shade for spring nails and I love the look and feel of Essie polishes.

Finally I picked up two new foundations Rimmel's Match Perfection in Ivory and also their Stay Matte Foundation. I'm still on a quest to find a good one after my Benefit Hello Flawless ran out and the L'Oreal one I bought in place of that was awful! We'll see how I get on with these. When better to try new ones when it's 3 for 2?!

Have you picked up ant 3 for 2's in Boots recently?

March Wishlist | Spring Wishes

Spring has sprung and I am loving all things pastel, floral and pretty. Here's a peek at what's on my wishlist this month...

Clinique//Cheek Pop in Plum Pop//£16.50
How beautiful does this little blush look? I love the flower design but like with most pretty things I wouldn't want to ruin it by using it! At the moment this is a special edition product on the Clinique website but I'm hoping they introduce them to Boots soon so I can have a little points splurge on one!

Forever 21//Sweet Rose Bun Cover//£3.15
This cute little bun cover comes in three different colours, cream, pink and mint green and I want them all! I think the cream would go best with my dark brown hair and at £3.15 each they're the perfect floral spring hair accessory.

Ikea//Symcka Flowers//£2 each
I really want to brighten up our magnolia flat by adding a splash of colour. I love fresh flowers but they don't last very long so these artificial gerberas would certainly do the job. I had gerberas in my wedding bouquet (almost two years ago now!) and they're my favourite flowers along with tulips!

Boots//Revlon Colourburst in Elusive//£7.99
I've never really been into pink shades but recently I've seen so many bloggers with this shade that I'm now desperate to try it. They were sold out on in my local Boots so I couldn't get it in my 3 for 2 - I'll just have to pop back and get another two things to go with it next time!

Forever 21//Subtle Thing Crossbody Bag in Cream//£13.90
I've been after a new cross body bag for a while now, my current Topshop one needs to be condemned! I need one which is big enough my my purse/keys/work badge and phone and this one looks like it fits the bill, plus being cream will basically go with every outfit I own!

Boots//Essie Mint Candy Apple Polish//£7.99
A spring staple! I've never been a fan of green shades until now. I love Essie polishes, they apply really well and with a good top coat, last for a long time.

Boots//Revlon Highlighting Palette//£8.99
Spring make up for me is all about the pinks and pastel colours. This highlighting palette has been labelled as a dupe for the infamous Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks (just a little bit more purse friendly) and I really want to give one a try. Another little 3 for 2 treat perhaps?

Yankee Candle//White Chocolate Bunnies Candle//£19.99
Finally, I went to Clinton's last week with my Mum and we spent at least 20 minutes wandering around the Yankee Candle stand. There are two Easter fragrances this year and white chocolate bunnies caught my eye (and nose!). Unfortunately they only come in large jars and £19.99 is quite a lot to spend on a candle so I don't think I'll be getting this (unless the Easter bunny sees this post?!)

What's on your March Wishlist? What do you think to my picks?

The Makeup Mishaps Tag

The lovely Becca has created a brand new tag which I knew I had to get started on straight away! I've done quite a few tags recently but none as amusing as this!

You're going to a high end beauty event - would you rather:

Have really thick, dark, sharpie eyebrows or a major neck/foundation line?
Definitely the major neck/foundation line, at least you could make some kind of attempt at covering it up with a pretty scarf or jumper (depending on what time of year it was!)

Have chipped nail polish or horribly faded lipstick?
I wouldn't really like to have either! I'm really fussy with chipped nails, I hate them and have to take the polish off as soon as its chipped a little bit but I think I would rather have chipped nails than faded lipstick!

Have smudged all your eye make up or have lipstick on your teeth?
Lipstick on my teeth, at least I could try and keep my mouth closed!

Over highlight - a la disco ball - or over pluck those brows and look constantly surprised?
 I think I would have to be a disco ball! I have known to be a little bit ambitious with highlighter and after several brow disasters in the past (Jaye knows what I mean!) I don't let anyone touch them!

It's a typical working/school day, and unfortunately your beauty products have gone missing. You can only find a few things hidden at the bottom of your makeup bag, and have to use what you can find. What do you choose?

OTT unsubtle fake lashes or clear mascara?
Clear mascara, although I probably just wouldn't bother at all!

A foundation five shades too dark or five shades too light?
It would have to be five shades too light, I'm so pale it would definitely notice if I went darker! At least with the light I would be able to try and blend it in so it looked a little more subtle!

Hair-gloss (a beautifully sticky gloss: perfect for getting your hair stuck to in the wind) or gorgeous concealer lips?
I wash my hair everyday because I'm so paranoid that it's greasy so I would have to have the concealer lips!

Finally, it's the middle of summer - you can have either a manicure or a pedicure. However, the other set of nails have to be bare - what do you pick?
 100% pedicure, there's nothing worse than bare toes in pretty sandals!

Have you tried this tag?

Pretty Pastels | Spring Nails

I love it when March rolls around as it's the time for pretty spring nails. It always seems like such a short time from when winter ends and summer begins so I like to get in quick with the pastel shades. 

I picked up a couple of the Models Own scented collection last year but didn't really get that much time to wear them. In all honesty I don't think that the scented aspect adds anything to these polishes, yes you can get a faint whiff of apple and grape but they just smell like polish to me. The pink colour isn't part of the scented collection, it's just called pastel pink, I think this was actually the first Model's Own polish I ever bought!

I've always thought that Model's Own polishes are worth the £5 each. I find that they have a similar quality to Essie, they apply nicely and don't streak (ooh er!) I also like the size and shape of the bottles and they fit nicely into my nail polish storage box. I did encounter one mishap with the bottle though, when I unscrewed the lid, the brush stayed inside the bottle! I did manage to get it to come out in the end though and it's nothing a bit of superglue won't solve!

I'm really loving the green shade right now and although it's probably exactly the same, I really want to buy Essie's Mint Candy Apple polish! I feel a March wishlist coming on!

When do you start wearing pastel shades? What are you favourite spring shades?

This Week I...#11

This week I have well and truly been getting into the spirit of spring. I've cleared out all my make up drawers and got rid of so many out of date products and those that I won't be using anymore and also rediscovered some old favourites including my Sleek Mirrored Pink blush which I mentioned in my High Street Blush Love post.

It was a good post week this week, when my Blogosphere magazine plopped through my letterbox! I really enjoyed reading the article on Fleur De Force as she is one of my favourite bloggers and what better food to snack on whilst reading than my favourite Mini Eggs!

On Wednesday evening I attempted a new class, aerial fitness. It involves hoops and silks which you perform different positions on. I didn't realise just how hard it was to actually get up on the hoop to start with, let alone do different positions on it! With a little help from the instructor I managed to get up and do a star position although I ached for days after (and still do a bit now!) I definitely have a lot of respect for circus performers now! It looks easy but it's definitely not!

High Street Blush Love

I think blush is my favourite part of my make up kit. In case you hadn't guessed from my blog design, I love pink and there's just something so feminine about blush colours and adding a little pop of colour to your cheeks. Today I'm going to talk about my favourite high street blushers.

Sleek Rose Gold Blush//£4.49
This shimmery peach blush has been named as a dupe for the NARS Orgasm blush although much more affordable at £4.49. I love this blush, its the perfect coral shade with a little bit of added sparkle. In the past I've been asked which highlighter I am wearing as I like to use it high on my cheek bones and people have been surprised when I've told them it's a blush. It comes in a lovely little compact with a handy little mirror.

Sleek Mirrored Pink Blush//£4.49
 Another favourite of mine also from the Sleek range is Mirrored Pink. This is also priced at £4.49 and was part of their Aqua collection which I think may have been limited addition as I can't seem to find it on the Superdrug website which was where I picked it up from. This is a beautiful dusky pink colour with a little bit of shimmer. I have found with this one that I have to build the colour up as the payoff is not as good as the Rose Gold blush but it still looks beautiful.

Topshop Blush in Morning Dew//£7
 I've done several posts on Topshop make up in the past and have always been impressed by the quality of their products. This blush in Morning Dew is no exception. It is a cream blush that turns to powder once applied. In the pan it looks quite bright but once applied it comes out as a lovely orangey pink which I blend out with my Real Techniques buffing brush. I love the Topshop packaging design it makes a nice change to all the black square blushers in my collection!

Topshop Blush in Sneakpeek//£5
I managed to pick this up on one of my many visits to Topshop, it was by the counter and was on sale for £5. I had seen them on the main stand previously but I guess that they now discontinued as I can't find them on the Topshop website anymore. I was intrigued by the stick design as I bought Benefit's Fine One One and loved how it applied (anything that makes my make up bag lighter is a bonus in my eyes!) Admittedly I haven't used this blush all that much as it is very bright (for me anyway - a girl that's used to subtle colours!) and this comes out as what I would describe as a bit neon! I definitely save it for my braver days!

What are your favourite blushers? Do you prefer high street or high end?

Models Own HyperGel Polish | Naked Glow

Model's Own seem to be releasing a brand new collection every five minutes at the moment and of course that means that I have to pick up at least one thing from every one!

I was quite excited about the new HyperGel collection as I love a nice glossy finish. I always like to check out some reviews before I buy anything and everything I heard about this collection has been good. Out of the ten colours available in the collection the one that caught my eye the most was Naked Glow, a subtle nude shade which just seems perfect for spring (although I also have my eye on Coral Glaze now too!).

 The above photo was taken with two coats applied and as you can see it creates a lovely flawless looking finish. I love shellac nails but don't always have the money to get them done. I love that this creates a similar look for a fraction of the price and also allows me not to be stuck with the same colour for a couple of weeks.

I bought this polish from Boots and it was my free item in the current 3 for 2 deal, they are currently £5 each.

I've been eagerly awaiting the release of their speckled eggs collection which I think are available in Superdrug stores today as I know I will be picking up one of those too, I've just got to decide which colour!

Do you have any of this collection? Which shades do you have?

Ahh that word...something I seem to be seriously lacking lately. You'd think that with the weather finally picking up I'd be in a better mood but I just can't seem to put my finger on why I'm lacking motivation recently.

I've decided to set myself some goals to help see if this keeps my motivation up, this doesn't just include blogging although that's included too as it's a big part of my life.

Reach 1000 Bloglovin followers...I'm so pleased with how my little blog has come along over the last year and a half but I really want to reach that big milestone. I'm still a little way off at the moment and I try not to get bogged down by the numbers - I love that over 700 of you listen to my ramblings on a daily basis and I'm grateful that so many of you leave me lovely comments

Post at least 20 times a month...If I can post at least 20 times a month then I will beat last years post total of 222. Obviously I still want to maintain quality, after all that's what you keep coming back for and I wouldn't post just for the sake of making up numbers but I think setting myself a little monthly goal will keep me on track.

Lose some pounds...recently my weight has started to get me down which I think is one of the key triggers to my lack of motivation. Basically for my height, I'm classed as overweight. I hate clothes shopping because I'm always worried that things won't fit me right. I'm not worried about the size of the clothes, after all, it's just a number. I just don't feel like me.

Keep at my savings goal...At the beginning of the year I joined the 52 week savings challenge (you can read my post about that here). I'm currently on week 10 (I transfer the money on a Sunday so this Sunday will be week 11) and so far I've saved a total of £55. That might not seem like a lot but once I start hitting the big week numbers the total will soon start to stack up (providing I don't dip into it!)

Strike some items off my 30 before 30 far I've only crossed off two items from my list (you can see my list here) and this year will see my 28th birthday. I know I'm still quite a long way off but there are some items on there that would be really easy to cross off if I just got my bum in gear!

I'm sorry if this sounds like a really whiny post! I'm hoping that I can look back on this soon with some positivity :)

How do you keep motivated? Do you sometimes suffer with a lack of motivation? I'd love to hear how you beat it!

Hello Spring!

image source

I never realise how much I miss Spring until it's upon me. I always thought that Autumn was my favourite season, mainly because my birthday is in Autumn and I love it when it starts to get dark in the evenings and Christmas is on it's way but lately I've been quite excited for Spring for several reasons...

Wearing pretty ballet pumps...I love my cream Topshop ballet pumps, they go with everything but it's been just that little bit too cold (and rainy!) to wear them, until now!

Not wearing a coat and scarf to work...breaking out of the confines of the winter coat and realising that spring has arrived and summer is on the way!

Pastel nails...spring is the best time to wear pastel nails. I'm really loving pastel green shades at the moment! favourite flowers, that only appear here this time of year. There is always such a short window for them and I always miss them. This year I am determined to buy some!

Floral patterns...clothes, accessories, duvets...they make everything so light, clean and fresh. I've just swapped my duvet cover to this and I love it!

Lighter evenings...I love being able to walk home from work instead of getting the bus but because I have to walk through a park I can't walk home when it's dark, I can't wait until the clocks go forward and I can stroll home.

Ice cream...I know this is more of a summer thing, but I feel that a nice clear Spring day is acceptable to buy and eat an ice cream!

Mini eggs...I don't think I need to explain this one!

What are your favourite things about Spring?

This Week I...#10

This week has been a bit of a mixed bag, I've been on late shifts at work which means I have had my mornings free. I like being able to wake up naturally in the mornings rather than by alarm and I love being able to pop to the shops when it's quieter to browse for products! Monday however, I spent my morning in A&E after hubby had an injury at American Football training, he initially had a doctors appointment but the doctor referred him to A&E for an xray to make sure he hadn't damaged his neck or spine. Don't worry, he's ok, just a little bit bruised! It did mean that afterwards we headed to Starbucks opposite the hospital for Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate and caramel shortbread before work!

On Friday morning I had my first ever gym class. Hubby has just joined a new gym where a friend or partner can go for free on a Friday. I was woken up at 5.45(!) for a 6.30am class called freestyle strength. It was only a 30 minute class and was REALLY intense. I got half way through and felt horribly sick so had to sit out the other half. I was really disappointed I couldn't finish it but got lots of lovely reassurance from the trainers that I did well for my first time as its a really hard class - I think I might just stick to swimming next Friday!

This week on the blog I finally managed to get my review up on my Naked 3 palette and I also showed you my MAC lipstick "collection". Next week I will be showing you what I picked up on my Boots 3 for 2 trip and my thoughts on the Model's Own HyperGel collection.

I also have a survey up with a few questions about my blog and would really appreciate it if you could take 2 minutes to answer the questions. Click here to take the survey.

The TMI Tag


You know I'm not one to turn down a good 'ol tag, so when I was tagged by Jaye (again! lol) to do the TMI tag, I jumped straight in!

1: What are you wearing? 
As I'm writing this I'm wearing my pyjamas, dressing gown and owl slippers! How cool am I?!

2: Ever been in love? 
Well considering I'm married I had better say yes! lol

3: Ever had a terrible breakup? 
I don't think there is such a thing as a good break up is there? Obviously you're not with that person anymore for a reason!

4: How tall are you? 
I'm pint sized, only 5ft 3" - I can't reach things on the top shelves at work and people laugh at me!

5: How much do you weigh? 
More than I should - let's just leave it at that shall we!

6: Any tattoos? 
No but I really want to get a butterfly tattoo on either the small of my back or my left ankle I just haven't got around to doing it yet.

7: Any piercings? 
My ears, twice, although the top piercings have sort of closed and I'm too much of a wimp to get them done again!

8: OTP? 
Mr Darcy and Elizabeth Bennett, nobody real!

9: Favourite show?
At the moment I'm really loving The Following. If you haven't seen it, watch it now! I've become a little obsessed with James Purefoy playing Joe Carroll and if you've seen the show you'll know that this isn't a good thing!

10: Favourite bands? 
I don't really tend to have favourite bands, I usually like individual songs, things that are in the charts as I usually have the music channel playing on the TV whilst I'm doing Saturday chores. I do love Ellie Goulding and Bastille though.

11: Something you miss? 
Having money! You never realise how easy you have it when you live at home, you don't have to pay rent or save money for bills etc. Every payday my money seems to disappear never to be seen again!

12: Favourite song?
I'm really loving The Piano Guys version of Christina Perri's A Thousand Year. We had the Christina Perri version as our first dance wedding song but I really love The Piano Guys version too. Take a listen on YouTube, it's beautiful.

13: How old are you? 
Twenty Seven, Twenty Eight this year...*cries*

14: Zodiac sign? 
I'm a Virgo, a true perfectionist!

15: Quality you look for in a partner? 
Someone who is thoughtful, loyal and trustworthy

16: Favourite Quote? 
Nobody can make you feel inferior without your concent - Eleanor Roosevelt - a wise woman.

17: Favourite actor? 
David Tennant (as Dr Who) If I ever met him I probably wouldn't be able to speak! Closely followed by Colin Firth, because I think he's beautiful.

18: Favourite color? 
You would think looking at the blog that it was pink, but its actually purple. I like violet and lilac shades.

19: Loud music or soft? 
It depends on what I'm doing. If I'm cleaning the flat I have it loud so I can hear it in every room but if I'm getting ready for work in the morning I'll have it quiet.

20: Where do you go when you're sad? 
It depends where I am when I get sad. At work we have a store room which everyone uses if they need a cry. If you wonder where someone is, you always check there first. If I'm at home, I usually crawl into my bed and hide there.

21: How long does it take you to shower? 
About 10-15 minutes and I always wash my hair. I'm usually half asleep when I shower!

22: How long does it take you to get ready in the morning? 
Probably about an hour sometimes more, I usually make myself a coffee whilst I'm getting ready and drink that in between my makeup and drying my hair.

23: Ever been in a physical fight?
No, I'm too much of a wimp!

24: Turn on?
A nice smile and if someone does something thoughtful like gives you a hug if you're feeling down.

25: Turn off? 
Being rude i.e. if people don't hold doors open for you or don't say thank-you if you do something for them.

26: The reason I started blogging?
