I want this for my room! And the cute underwear!

Nail bar!

I was lucky enough to attend the New Look SS14 Press Day and it was fabulous, New Look really have got some lovely pieces for SS14. I extremely loved the Chelsea boots, in both black in white, I need them both in my life. I also loved the bikinis they have to offer, with intricate strap designs and beautiful tropical prints. Another piece that caught my eye was a white cropped shirt, I want it! I wanted everything in there basically! I also loved the tweet screen in the room, thought that was a nice touch, also the way the carpet for each section matched the theme and key print, nice one New Look! The mannequins were all beautiful styled, and literally cannot wait for the new Kelly Brook lingerie to come out, some really beautiful pieces. Overall I was really impressed and really enjoyed myself!

 Thanks New Look for a lovely day!

this halloween..

I know it's late but better late than never I guess! But for this Halloween I went as the freaky Jigsaw Puppet thing from Saw. I had so much fun being dressed up as him, way too much fun infact, and it has definitely been my favourite halloween costume in a long time. I watched a few Saw Puppet tutorials online but felt they were all too extreme and black eyeshadow makes me look like a drag queen.. so I just did my normal going out makeup with a tad more darker eyeshadow, then added the Saw details such as the puppet mouth lines, slight red lipstick and the red swirls on the cheeks.

Overall I thought my attempt was a successful and loved my little bow tie ;) I also wore these stocking socks which were black with red bows at the back so I thought that was a nice little touch. Everyone was coming up to me like OMG THE PUPPET FROM SAW! so that was funny. I went out the night before Halloween instead of actual halloween, as I had a fundraisor and actual halloween is also a night full of stress, queues and drunken idiots... not very fun.

I don't have any full length images of me (I know how annoying), however I do have these shameless Instagram selfies! Forgive me!

Hope you enjoyed this post! And hopefully some more posts coming soon, once I get this work load under control! Safe!

university stress...

I'm getting annoyed about how I haven't posted recently but this annoying thing called university is causing me a lot of stress already and it's only November..

There is too much to do and I just want to pull out all my hair and smash my face against the wall repeatedly. Also there is a number of other factors going on in my life that are not helping. I really need to make time for blogging as it's something I enjoy so bear with me until I get my life on track...

On the plus side it's 21 days till Disneyland! Yay! And i'm buying my new fancy dslr camera very soon so my blog will be a lot more photo-tastic and interesting.

Sorry again and bear with me!

I am Sasha Fierce....

if you know me in person, you will know that I like to call myself Beyonce. I am Beyonce. I had someone come up to me once like, 'are you joking, you look nothing like her, you're so stupid'. Correct, I don't think I look like her, I just use her as persona.

A lot of my friends come to me for advice, I feel like I give good advice (but never take it myself) and what I will tell a lot of them is be Beyonce.

I think she's fantastic and when things get me down and upset, I think and go, 'would Beyonce care?'.. Beyonce wouldn't care if a boy didn't text her back, Beyonce would care if a boy was mean, she could have anyone she wanted! If I feel like someone is making me upset, I put on my Beyonce and tell them to do one, and I think more girls need to do this.

Girls stop letting boys and silly things get you down, BE BEYONCE!

Beyonce gives me strength and the ability to get over shit that I shouldn't care about. It sounds fucking stupid but it works. 

The two best songs as well are Irreplacable and Best Thing I Never Had, stick 'em on your playlist whenever life is getting you down. Or if you want something nicer, Crazy In Love is my personal favourite, gets me dancing.

Until next blogpost, keep being Beyoncé girls,

give me a C, give me a H, give me a E, give me another E, give me a R! What does that spell? CHEER!

Yes, as you can tell by the post, I am a cheerleader. When people hear cheerleader, they assume a girly girl who stands there in a uniform with pom poms shouting annoying things, and yes that is a tiny part of the cheerleading I been a part of for years now. I am a competitive cheerleader for my university squad. We compete across the country at level 3 and I absolutely love it. we are the solent Ravens and this year you'll find us at ICC Guildford and Nottingham and FC Bath.

my beautiful squad at nationals
 I started this post a few days ago, before tryouts, just in case I didn't get on and was seriously upset, but yay I did it! I made the competition squad for the third year running and I also am now part of the Hip hop Dance Squad as well and SO BLOODY EXCITED FOR THAT! I was in the Hip hop first year and it was so fun, I definitely prefer the dancing side of performing the most. Although comp cheer will be amazing as my new flyer is TIIIIINY and so light, it's magical.

I am addicted to competitions. The whole atmosphere is amazing and really gets you going. At the last two competition I went to, I had suffered a serious hamstring injury and it got to a point where I couldn't even walk when I came off the mat, but when I was out there performing, I forgot about all the pain, it's just so fun and exhilarating you don't even realise or remember you're in pain. In my first year of competition squad, at the last competition we went too which was Nationals in Nottingham, I was elbowed in the riiiiiight in the face, and it right near the eye, and it was at the very beginning of the routine.. I spent the whole routine with my eyes watering but I didn't stop at one point and I still gave it me all for it, as the adrenaline is literally amazing.

Before I came to uni I was painfully shy and had zero self-confidence. Now thanks to cheerleading I have come so far out my shell the shell has disappeared. I now can never remember why I was that shy or being so shy, but I love how much confidence it has given me. If you're new at uni or going to uni in the future, I totally reccommend a university sport or society, or definitely cheerleading if they have a squad.

I probably will blabber on about cheerleading on this blog, as it's something I love but I thought i'd do this now to warn you all.

in the stone age...

so i have no internet at my uni house for like 2 weeks, and i'm already going nuts, feel like im in the stone age again. i am currently in the uni library checking my facebook, twitter, blogger and also watching the latest keeping up with the kardashians as im going crazy without watching it. I can't believe how busy the library is already and it's the just start of the year. I'm pretty sure they're all freshers as well. It's been twice I haven't been able to get a computer due to it being busy so it's literally scaring me for when deadlines are due... they should have a third year only floor so third years can always get a space.

this morning i went into town and was meant to only buy a new golf visor for the annual cheer and american footballer pub golf social that i attend as i'm a uni cheerleader, but i bought a few other bits....

I went into Boots and bought a new Real Techniques brush, the blush one, as I looooove these brushes, they're amazing, and i'm slowly trying to grow my collection. I also have run out of my MAC mineralize finish natural powder and I don't have any internet to order another one, and don't want to online shop using the public university computer, so i bought the Rimmel Stay Matt powder in transparent as i have heard good things about it and it was only £3.99. I also wanted the Matt black new Barry M nail varnish but it wasn't on offer! I only ever buy Barry M when it's on offer, so i'm keeping my eyes out for an offer to pop up.. I also bought a new Benefit You Rebel Lite, this is like the third time i've repurchased it, I love it and it's perfect for everyday uni wear.

I then went into Primark which is rare as it angers me beyond life, as it's messy, the customers are vultures and the staff hate life. It was fairly early in the morning so it wasn't as busy so I braved it... I found these footsies slippers thing, with BAMBI HEADS ON THEEEEM. They're so flipping adorable! I also bought a new sports bra, joggers and some tights, pretty boreee. I could've bought this bedsheet as well, it's navy blue but with PUGS all over it! It wasn't the nicest but it had pugs on it so I wanted it, but I managed to resist it and walked away, something very rare when i'm shopping!

omg wish i could do this at home in bed, it's so cold and i'm so tired! I have no makeup on as well and i look like a drug abuser without it so i'm literally ducked down incase I see anyone I know...

I also have about 15 books on blogging, social media and new media marketing I need to read whilst i'm catching up on all my programme i've missed due to no internet so I need to multi-task like a motherlover right now.

I'm also working on some next posts so get excited people!

Until next time!
