The Netflix Tag

Hello everyone!

Yes, I've changed my blog layout and colours again. I like to change it up now and again just so I have more motivation! Anyway, onto the post...

I saw this tag on the lovely Faye's blog Faye Olivia earlier this week, and just had to give it a go! I've only had Netflix for less than two months - thank you to my sibling for letting me share with her - so I'm still new! Here it goes!

1. What are you favourite series' to watch on Netflix?
Miranda, Top Gear, Fawlty Towers, OITNB

2. What are you currently watching on Netflix?
Currently re-watching a bunch of Top Gear episodes and also a film called '10 Rules for Sleeping Around' as I'm going through a Virgina Williams phase right now!

3. If you could have any series, old or new put on Netflix, what would it be? 
I'd love for all of Grey's Anatomy and Supernatural to be on there! Would save me the trouble of finding the box sets all the time!

4. What is your one peeve about Netflix?
The search section. I cannot navigate the sections for the life of me, so I tend to be watching whatever is recommended to me!

5. What are your essentials for a perfect night in with Netflix?
Laid on my bed with chocolate and in my PJ's!

6. Recommend one series or film for someone else.
Miranda. You will NEVER regret watching this TS show as it is a total gem and bloody hilarious. As for films, Blackfish or Revenge of the Bridesmaids!

Hope you liked this, and give it a try yourself! Let me know if you do it too, so I can be nosey and take a peek! Have a great day and keep safe :)

Collection Big Fake Curves Mascara | Review

Hello everyone!

Firstly, sorry that this is only the second beauty post of the year! I've been waiting for a semi-decent day of sunshine to take some new pictures, and the day finally came yesterday! Be prepared for a heap I have for you... Now onto the post!

A new mascara that I've been trying recently is the Big Fake Curves Mascara from Collection. I'm a huge fan of the brand, so I'm constantly picking up their products and ones that I've never tried before. You can get this in Boots for £3.99.

The packaging is pretty basic and simple. It explains what it is and the desired effect you can get, along with a little 'blurb' about the mascara. I liked that it was a nice shaped tube and the pink caught my eye, which was why I picked it up.

The brush applicator... Well, where do I start? I hate it. It reminds me of a war mace I'm likely to see in The Hobbit movies, more than a spoolie for my mascara. It's just so chunky and I found it really hard to get an even look on my lashes, and parts didn't get any mascara on at all.

Overall, I'm really disappointed with this mascara and I don't really like it. It's too hard to navigate, and the brush is just awful in my opinion. It pains me to say so, as I totally adore Collection! I won't be buying it again, and I honestly, I don't recommend it either. If you want a good one from Collection, then their Extreme Coloured Lengthening mascara is perfect for you. You can read my review on that one here.

Have you tried this yourself, and what did you think? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

Fave Disney Movie - Tania Talks #4

Hello everyone!

Carrying on with the 'Tania Talks' posts, here is post number 3! Hope you are enjoying these so far :)

Ahh Disney! This is one of those wonderful things that I started becoming obsessed with back in December 2012 and I was going to Florida in April 2013. I mean it wasn't until about 2 months ago that I saw Frozen for the first time, and it had been out for a whole year! As for my fave Disney movie... I have two.

Mulan and Tangled.

The above part is my fave thing in the whole movie.
Mulan was released in 1998, so I was 6 years old, but I didn't see it until I was seven or eight years old - but as I grew up, I just loved it. I loved that a girl was kicking guys butts. She saves herself. She was strong and independent.
Even now it still really bugs me that there isn't a lot of merchandise of her, as she is such a good character. SHE'S A PRINCESS, DAMN IT!!

And Tangled. Oh this film. I didn't see this until about a year or so after it was released and didn't get what the fuss with this Flynn Rider guy was. But then I saw the film and I got it. He's literally the only sane person in all of Disney. BEST MALE CHARACTER.
My sister watched this with me, and she'd already seen it. Apparently my reaction to Flynn getting stabbed and her hair being cut off was hilarious.
I was a little traumatized for about five minutes.
I love the film, the characters and the little short film of the wedding that is on youtube!

What is your fave Disney film? Hope you're having a great day and keep safe :)

Hair Tales

Hello everyone!

Just a quick post today, as I'm feeling a bit rough! Didn't want to miss a day, so here is something I put together the other night!

On January 9th, I was going out to a friend's birthday dinner and decided to try something new with my hair. Yep, I tried to style it. I'm not really into my hair or anything. If it's washed and dried, I'm pretty happy. I have naturally straight hair, but I wanted to have some sort of wave effect for the night!

I end up with this!

But as I was finding the webcam picture folder on my laptop, I found a picture of me, a little over two years ago. After making the side by side image for you below, you can see such a change!

Look how long it's got! I've been wanting to grow it out for ages, and was a little convinced that it just wasn't. Boy, was I mistaken! It's a lot longer and healthier now that it was back then as well, and I love it!

What sort of styling do you do with your hair? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

New Year's Resolutions - 2015

Hello everyone!

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that I shared a picture of my 2015 resolutions! I think that by sharing them, it makes me more accountable to them, and also I'd like to do an update later in the year to see how I'm going!

In case you can't see them (or read my terrible handwriting), here they are, along with the 2015 bucket list, and a little explanation for some of them!!
  • Learn to unapologetically say no
  • Read, read, read
  • Write more. Write about everything
  • Use my camera more
  • Tell more stories
  • Moisturize more
  • Appreciate my body more
  • Don't give a shit about other's opinions of me
  • Be patient. Be thankful.
  • Stop treating life as a competition
  • Have more solo dance parties in my room
  • Smile more. At people, at everything.
  • Meet new people
  • Take better care of myself
  1. Finish writing a novel
    • I've wrote a 50,000+ word book before, but it's not great, so I've started writing another one and would love to actually finish it by the end of the year
  2. Hit 600 bloglovin followers
  3. Read 10 new books
  4. Lose 2 stone in weight
    • There was a time when I was nearly 3 stone lighter than what I am now, but if I aim for 2, I'll be really happy with that
  5. Go to the cinema at least four times
    • If you have anxiety like me, sometimes social situations and large crowded places can be a trigger for me. I'm fine once I'm actually in my seat to watch the movie, but the whole experience of getting there is not fun. I managed two trips in 2014, so I'm aiming for double!
  6. Learn 100 words in Japanese
    • Currently at 23/100
  7. Learn 100 words in French
    • Currently at 26/100
  8. Learn to cook a new dish
  9. Drive more - to new places
Have you made any resolutions for this year or a little bucket list? This is the first time I've actually done this and made resolutions so lets see if I can keep up with them! I hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

Rimmel Mono Eye Shadow - Audacious Amethyst

Hello everyone!

I bought this Mono Eye Shadow for 99p off of Fragrance Direct and it is lovely! I love a good bargain anyway, and for 99p this is just great! There are fifteen colours available on the site, so you can pick a shade suitable for you. I chose Audacious Amethyst as I love purple, and the shade is so pretty.

The shade is matte and a lilac colour, but quite pigmented. It also comes with a little sponge applicator, but it's so small and fiddly that I couldn't get along with it at all. I also like that the shadow has the little Rimmel crown in the middle, so I've been using the product around it!

Do you like this shade and have you tried any of the colours? Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

What I Got For Christmas!

Hello everyone!

I had an amazing Christmas and festive period, and today is the start of 2015! So hopefully you are all safe at home, partying, drunk or sober! My final post about Christmas is going to be the classic WIGFC post! I took all the pictures on my phone so sorry for the quality, but I was too excited to take them all properly!

First up is what my best friend Nicola bought me! I got a Primark gift card, a Baylis & Harding bath set, a really cool purse for your money and phone, a really really pretty Swarovski ring and a set of 3-drawers with love hearts on them and the top reads 'I love my Best Friend' << I love all of these!!

Left (from Billy) > He bought me this pretty Deathly Hallows bracelet and a bobble head Captain America Pop! figure!
Right (from Lauren) > This Olaf Pop! figure is so cute! I had no idea they had made Frozen ones! She also bought me a little Makeup Rev nail polish set which is so awesome!
You can tell I mentioned Pop! figures a few times this year!

My awesome sister made me this cushion with my initial on it (it's so squishy I love it) and her yearly sibling coupons! She does these every year for me and I adore them.
My friend Jackie knows I love my nail polishes, so she bought me a nail art set and a little red polish from Nails Inc!

My brother, sister-in-law and nephew got me the penguin mug which is soooo cute!
My mum bought the nail bits and gift card - along with £50 which is tucked in  my purse!

Mother also bought me the blender I've been wanting since Easter!

And she also picked this up for me! 144 shades of fun right here!

Also from Mum are these nail polish sets, Impluse set and a John Frieda hair care set

Mum also got me the Claire's 4-set Lipsticks and the 9 shade eye shadow palette from Claire's!
From Dad > Minion & Model's Own nail sets, a Playboy perfume set and two MAC eyeshadows! (He nearly had a heart attack when he saw how much they were and how small they were!)

Dad also got these DVD's for me which I can't wait to watch!

Oh he knows I love a bit of 1D!

Obsessed may be a better term... Can't wait to read the books and give the game and makeup a try!

I hope you enjoyed this little insight into my gifts! I love all of them so much and it just shows how well my friends know me! So until next time, have a great day and keep safe :)

Happy New Year!


I am currently asleep, but that is the wonder of scheduling a blog post!! Thank you technology ;)

Today is the start of a New Year. A whole new 365 days are ahead of us. Will you change something in your life for the better? Have you made any resolutions?

Are you currently out getting drunk? Or are you asleep like me?!!

Today my family will be round as usual, so I'm in charge of dinner for them all, which means I'm taking most of the day off and away from the internet. I love this day every year.

Hope you either enjoyed celebrating tonight, or have fun in the morning with family and friends, but either way - hope you are all safe and well :)

Happy new year,
