Monthly Favourites #28 - August


How is August over so freaking fast? I swear it was April not two weeks ago! Summer is practically over, and the British weather has been on and off so much, I don't feel like we had much of a summer season this year! My 25th birthday is in less than two weeks, so I have a lot of good things in September to look forward to - so lets look at the faves from August! 

Song
I've been addicted to this song all month. There's something about the melody and beat of it that I am obsessed with. The first day I bought it, I'd listened to it nearly 70 times during the day. I found the video a week ago, and though it's super weird and odd for Maroon 5, it's such a good song!


Picture
My favourite picture from this month is of recent Harley Quinn comic book haul! I've bought about 30 comic books in the past month, and most have featured my fave Gotham City Siren. I'm finally all caught up with her story, including the awesome 25th anniversary edition!


TV Show
I am back in love with SATC. I usually turn to this when I'm having any kind of drama in my life - as Carrie has it so much worse than me 😂 I've almost made it to middle of season 6, so I'm not doing too bad with watching this of an evening. I will always love this show, even though it's not a genre I usually go for! Samantha is my fave, so who is yours?

Movie
I've not watched many films this month as I've been re-watching SATC, but the one film I have watched was The Losers. This is my all time fave movie, and one that I've watched 30+ times this year alone. It's from 2010, and is the movie that kick started my obsession with Chris Evans and Zoe Saldana. Columbus Short, who plays Pooch, actually follows me on twitter, which is still baffling to me! The film is a good action, with some comedy added in - an all round perfect movie for me!



Hope you enjoyed these faves for August! What have you loved this month yourself, from each category? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe!

Tiana | Disney Inspired Lookbook


I've decided to do a set of Disney Inspired Lookbooks - all inspired by the Princesses - in the run up to my Florida holiday this year! I don't think I'll be able to squeeze them all in before I actually go, but I'll do my best! Last time I created a new Mulan look, and now it's time for this week's new Princess!



I am obsessed with the dress from this look!! What part of the look is your favourite, and who is your fave Disney Princess? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

PS4 Game Collection


At the end of May, I jumped on the gaming bandwagon, and finally bought myself a PS4. I've been wanting one for a few years now - mainly so I could use it for Netflix! After an unusually good month with my spending, I treated myself to it. I ended up getting a package deal of the LEGO: Star Wars game, Blu-Ray movie of the same film, and the console/controller in the bundle. Not bad for £280 from Amazon!

I also purchased LEGO Jurassic World at the time, as I am majorly in love with the LEGO games, which I usually play on Steam.



A few weeks later, I then picked up Assassin's Creed Syndicate, which I've actually played a lot of before, but I wanted my own version! The most recent edition to my collection is the Guardians of the Galaxy Telltale game.

I've had a go on all of these so far, except Guardians, which I'm going to try and play sometime after my holiday! I'm trying to get Jurassic Park finished right now.



Jurassic World is so fun to play, and even though I'm only as far as the third film on the game right now, I'm loving it! The Star Wars game is a little harder to control than Jurassic World, so I've only played a few chapters of that one - might try it again later this week. Syndicate is the first PS4 game I ever played, and it's got such a fun story to it, so I'm excited to finish it off at some point!

Are you a games lover, and are you a PS4 or XBox person? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

Reasons I Won't Match With You On A Dating Site


So a couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that I was back on dating sites again. I'd mentioned how I was finding it so far, along with a few things I'd noticed over the course of my time on them. Well it's been a little over a month now since going back on the site and well... Interesting doesn't quite describe it.

With Badoo, the matching feature involves swiping yes or no on people's profile pictures. All you get to see is their name, age and job title, along with their main profile picture. You can swipe left for no, or right for yes. Or if you want to know more before picking, you can swipe their details up and see all of their profile. This includes their 'about me' and their interests, plus their general location.

So what makes me swipe no on a guy, or choose to pick no after they've said yes to me and started a conversation? Well there are a few things straight away that I will say no!


  • Only one profile picture
  • No about me section
  • Over the age of 38
  • Smoker
  • Under the age of 23
  • You send me a dick pic
  • You tell me my 'tits are amazing'
  • You tell me that 'I have porn star tits' < this has happened 4 times so far...
  • You obviously haven't ready any of my profile
  • You ask for nudes
  • We live too far apart
  • Have a username instead of actual name on your profile
  • You send me 100's of messages before I even get a chance to see your profile
  • If it's obvious you're just after a hook up
  • Has children my age - yes this has happened already!
  • Empty profile other than a picture and name
  • Unnecessarily aggressive when I don't reply with 'I know I am,' when told I'm good looking 
  • Calls me a 'bitch' for taking too long to reply

These are most of the reasons I won't match with you, and a lot of these things have already led to me blocking/reporting a dozen or so people. Some have been particularly aggressive!

Have you had any of these troubles on dating sites, or liked someone but then found a reason to now match with them? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

What's In My Carry On Bag?


Carry on bags are such a pain in my opinion. I'm quite happy to just have my backpack on the plane, but there are always things that won't fit in such a small bag. So, carry on cabin bags are the way forwards. I know most people are happy with a small suitcase as their carry on, but I've opted for a simple backpack as my carry on/handbag this time around.

The thought process behind this was that I can buy a large bag when I'm in Florida, and that can be the cabin bag for the return for any goods I want to bring back that might break in the hold.


I have this nice big Darth Vader backpack. It's nice and roomy for everything I need, plus more. Everything in the below pictures fits in here perfectly. There are other things such as my passport, boarding pass, phone/ipod, camera and purse that I've not taken pictures of, as these are just my 'added extras' on top of my essentials!

I have a super awesome, Minnie Mouse neck pillow for the plane - and my sister has a Mickey Mouse one! I bought these in Primark for £6 about 4 months ago, and so happy I did. Adds a nice touch of Disney to the travelling.



To keep me busy on the plane, along with any films they have on offer to watch, I've packed some little activities for me. I'm taking a wordsearch book and some stationary for when I'm not in the mood to watch anything. I love wordsearches, and as they take me ages to complete, these should burn off a few hours! I've also packed in Zoella's third book from the Girl Online series to read while on the plane, and also when we're at the villa.



A new addition to my travel gear, is my beauty bag. I've got this small clear pouch that is perfect for security, and just the right size for everything I need. I've got a powder and concealer ready for before we land so I can look a little more awake, some plasters just in case, a small compact mirror, mascara, and a hand sanitizer. I might swap some of these bits out for newer items before we go, but that's the general look of what I've got in the clear case.

What are your carry on bag travel essentials? Let me know, just in case there's something vital I might be missing! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

Crownbrush UK Chubby Eye Pencils


I've been a big fan of Crownbrush ever since they contacted me on Twitter at the start of 2016. I've tried out their makeup brushes and eyeshadow palettes before, and I love them - so thought I'd try some more things from them.

One thing that caught my eye recently, were these Chubby Eye Pencils. For £3.99 each, they're quite a nice bargain. There are 13 different shades on offer, but the ones I chose were a purple a copper colour, called Copper Rock and Grape Crush, respectively.




I use copper and purple shades the most for my eye looks, so these are perfect for me. Both are highly pigmented and do not need a lot of coverage to get the desired effect.

I wouldn't use the pair of them together, but individually with other shades, they would be really good for night out looks! Due to them being eye pencils. they also work really well as bases for eye shadows to go over the top of. I'm definitely going to buy more of these come pay day, as I have really enjoyed them so far.

Have you tried out Crownbrush and what do you think of them? I highly recommenced them as a brand as it's all such good quality. Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

Welcome To Dating Sites


So if you don't follow me on Twitter - and if not, why are you not? - then you'll have seen that I'm back on dating sites. Yep, I've been a single pringle for almost 3 months now, so I'm a free agent and back on the sometimes-hell, also called Badoo. It's a chat/dating site, has the same swiping feature as Tinder, and also lets you know when you've bumped into someone within about quarter of a mile.

Sometimes it's fun, sometimes it's hell on Earth. All depends on the day it seems!

Last time I done a three part series of this back in 2013, which you can read all about in the follow places!


As you can tell, it's a proper thriller. Anway, back to the present. So now I'm single once again, I've decided to come back on Badoo and see what people are out there now. I've a very different person to who I was 4 years ago, so I have a better mindset and better outlook on life and myself.


I've been back on the site for about 2/3 weeks now and wow. Out of about 100 men that I've spoken to, 90% of them have been assholes! The other 10% have been pretty fun to chat to, and I've even swapped numbers with a few of the seemingly sane ones.

What have I learnt about dating sites in 2017? Let me tell you...

  • Unwanted dick pics are apparently still a thing
  • Even had a few tit pics from women as well which was a whole new experience!
  • 'Hi' is the most boring conversation starter
  • Not all the men on there are bad, there are some really nice people on there
  • Patience is a virtue
  • Men think to comment on the size of my tits as a conversational opener will be good idea. It is not
  • The block/report button is your best friend
  • 50% of people will not read a damn thing from your profile
  • A lot of guys you think 'hell yes' to, are 100+ miles away from you
  • It is, in someways, a confidence booster
  • You will get random men's phone numbers straight away, without even a greeting
  • I've had 3 marriage proposals already
  • It's really hard to think of something witty as a conversation opener
  • You will find people on there that you already know from work/school etc

I've honestly had so many dick pics sent to me in the past month, that I could make a fancy collage of them all saying the word 'no' pretty soon. Maybe will take that up as a new hobby...

Are you on any dating sites and have found any of the above to me the same/true of your experiences? Let me know so I know I'm not alone! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

I've decided to do a set of Disney Inspired Lookbooks - all inspired by the Princesses - in the run up to my Florida holiday this year!

I am obsessed with the shoes from this look!! What part of the look is your favourite, and who is your fave Disney Princess? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)
