Perfect Perfumes!

Over the last few months of 2014 and in the sales I have accumulated various perfumes and developed a small collection of perfumes that smell like heaven and I thought I would share with you the scents I have been loving this season- 

Black Opium is a new release from Yves Saint Laurent at the end of 2014. This scent is very feminine with no musky tones. It has floral and vanilla undertones and smells absolutely incredible. I was given this by my boyfriend for my 21st and you can get your hands on it from your local Boots in beautiful gift sets. 

Juicy Couture is an all time favourite for me and again I got this from my boyfriend for my christmas and I reckon this is my 4th bottle. If you're after a flirty, fruity scent this is absolutely perfect. This retails at a reasonable price around £35 but Boots again do gorgeous gift scents which come with a handy pocket perfume vial for your bag- Perfect eh?

Last but by no means least, is Armani She. This perfume for me was a sales purchase and I feel it was the bargain of the sales overall! I picked up this small set from Debenhams at £25.00 which is an steal considering its normally a higher priced scent.  Again She is a fruity scent, but has a slight hint of darker undertones, I cannot wait to use the shower gel and body lotion once I have gotten through the endless Snow Fairy...

Adios! xx

My year in pictures..

2014 for me had a few significant events- some positive and others not so great. 2014 for me held my best memories so far. I have three new tattoo's this year and I plan not to have anymore for the foreseeable future. Tattoo's for me shouldn't need to be planned far in advance as long as you know a reputable artist you are good to go. I met my boyfriend last year, who has slowly but surely became a very big part of my life.  

For someone who suffers with very bad nerves, I've met someone who makes me feel completely comfortable and cannot thank him enough for all that he's done for me. In October 2014, I celebrated my 21st along with Alan and my friends/family. My 21st was always a big worry in the broad spectrum of things, that was quickly resolved as soon as the night started my nerves settled. 

I started my HNC in Early Education and Childcare after 3 years of childcare related studies. I can safely say I think my time as a student is finished. I have the desire to go and find myself a job to manage for the big budget I have in my imagination. 2014 marked 3 years in Girl Guiding for me and inspired me to aim higher. I have thought about doing a post on my voluntary experiences, if you would like to see that comment below!

In 2014 I also landed myself with two perfect lionhead rabbits- Pheobe & Rachel! (Brownie points for those who get the reference,..)

I'd like to think 2015 is going to be the year for me, I can't predict the future but I am certain if it's similar 2014 it will be just perfect..

Tattoo tag!

Hello, just a little tag for all of you...

1.How many tattoos do you have?

I have 7 all together! One on my inside left ankle, two on my left arm, three on my left and one on my back.

2. What's your favourite tattoo you have?

My favourite tattoo is probably a difficult question I have to choose between my crescent moon and my heart locket, both have meanings personal to me and I love them!

3. How old were you when you got your first tattoo?

I was actually 16 when I got my first tattoo. The legal age is 18, so I was a little bit on the rebellious side. 

4. What do your parents think about your tattoos?
My mum isn't all too bothered she came with me to get my first one. She's quite into the art and meanings behind tattoo's so she's quite easy going to be honest.

5. Does your boyfriend like your tattoos, if so what's his favourite?

Yes he does, at least I hope so. I haven't really asked what his favourite of mine is but he was with me when I got my recent crescent moon so possibly that's the one! 

6. Did you always have a love for tattoos and what was your inspiration?

I've always been fascinated by ink and the way people portray art on their skin and tell stories in pictures. I haven't had a specific inspiring source but I enjoy old school and traditional style tattoos.

7. Do you plan on getting more tattoos in the future?

Not for a while yet...

8. Which tattoo would you say was the most painful?

My most painful tattoo is most definitely the one on my inside ankle. Maybe because it was the first one I have had which was below waist level and on a particularly non-fleshy area.

9. Do you regret any of your tattoo's and why?

Not at this moment in time, no. But I'm still young and they're all relatively simple. Maybe in the future, I doubt it though.

10. What was your least painful tattoo?

My least painful tattoo is probably the one on my back it was over within half an hour and is basic line work.  

11. Who would you you like to tag?

Everyone and anyone who has or enjoys tattoos. Leave your links below and I'll check them out!

2014 Favourites!

Here's a few things I have been loving in 2014 and a few hidden gems I've came across in the year!

 The obligatory  Lush purchase on everyone's christmas list has to be Snow Fairy! I had to partially fight to get this online in the lush sales and ended up with three bottles. Sugary, candy heaven! 
I mentioned in my previous post that I turned 21 in October and I received this beautiful watch from all my girls! I have wanted to purchase a Michael Korrs watch for so long and my wish was their command.

Yankee Candles are the Gucci of the candle  world. Season of Peace the festive delight, was released in 2013 I believe and smells like heaven. Soft but strong scent with  similar under notes to Clean Cotton by Yankee Candle. Completely  opposite  with my second choice of scent which is Midsummers Night, a musky almost aftershave like scent which smells amazing when lit. 

My favourite songs at this current moment one of which I wouldn't normally choose but I  have had both songs on repeat for weeks.

Taylor Swift- Blank Space has a catchy beat and I find myself walking about college singing it, I've never been a fan of Swift but she's got me good with this one. My second choice is one from my long time favourite Mr Ed Sheeran- One. This song has so many meanings and lovely connotations it's just a delight through my earphones. 


Hello, Salut,Bonjour!

Firstly I would like to apologise for being away for so long and the lack overall of posts on this ramble page. In 2014 I have had a bit of a whirlwind year and it's probably one of my favourite years to date. The first few months of 2014 were a shambles and just overall not pleasant. Without too much story telling, I landed myself in HNC Childcare in June and shortly after met my wonderful better half. Frankly I couldn't wipe the smile off my face and felt like everything was falling into place. I have became a high end makeup geek and purchasing that plus any highstreet brands with my college funding (ssh!). I turned 21 in August and couldn't be more more thankful for everyone who turned up at my party and for those closest who listened to my moaning.. My new years resolution is to do more of what makes me happy and to value others. 

I'll leave you with
this cheeky snap! 

How was your year? x
