15 Questions Tag!


Hello, friends.  I saw this tag being done on Jim Chapman's youtube channel (I recommend you watch him here, he is awesome!) And I thought it was quite a fun tag, and even though he did it on youtube, I thought I can still do it on my blog.  So here it is :)

1. What is the one thing you like to think you can do but really can't? 
I like to think I'm really good at accents, and I think my American accent is genuinely a good american accent.  But all the other accents I do, I think I'm good at, but I get told frequently that they suck... Wahh hahaa

2. What is a difficult word for me to pronounce?
I find "economy" a difficult word to say, because I always say the "e" a different way, so that it doesn't sound right.  I start saying "e" like "economics" or "e" like "ee" and its just weird, and a strange word.  For me anyway.

3. What is your favourite tv show from childhood?
 I think my favourite tv show from childhood was probably, something like Drake and Josh.  I loved it, and I remember I always found Drake so fit, I watch it back now and think hmmm...

4. What are your virtues and vices? 
My virtues are that I like to work hard to get what I want, and I won't give up.  I like being busy as well, although the lazy day now and again doesn't go amiss, also I think I am a very open minded person about all kinds of things, like people and food or whatever, I don't like to judge someone or something before you have met them or tried them.  And my vices are that I actually get very stressed out and angry when I can't do something.  It can even be the smallest thing but I can just get angry and I don't really understand why.  

5. What is most important to you? Love, fame, power or money?
Obviously every says love, and thats because it is true.  Can you imagine if you had no friends, family.  That's all love.  But money is important, because to be perfectly honest money makes the world go round.  But firstly love <3

6. If you could live in any time or era when would it be and why?
I would probably choose the now, just maybe like a couple of years earlier because of this stupid English mark scheme thingy :P hahaa but no, I love where I am now and the way the world is at the moment.

7. If I had to re-do my wardrobe using only two stores what would they be? 
Probably a place like Selfridges because there are so many things to choose from, (btw I am doing this question with the idea that I have unlimited money:) ) and then Topshop just because I rarely buy things from there because it is expensive but there are so many things I wish I could buy.  

8. Can you recall what you were doing this time a year ago?
Umm I think I would have just got back from America - best trip ever!! And I would be on a massive american football hype because I love american football and after that trip I was obsessed!

9. Have you ever had any recurring dreams and what are they?
I used to have this recurring dream that I was basically the girl version of Harry Potter.  Now I do actually have a scar on my head, a similar scar to Harry's so maybe it was meant to be... Who knows...

10. What is your horoscope?
I am a taurus and my horoscope today is...

"There's a terrific expansive feeling to the day, Taurus, which you will appreciate more than anyone. For other people, this energy might expand into a headache. For you, it's apt to expand your feeling of success. It also might expand your stomach, so be careful that you don't overindulge. Other than that, don't hold back on your activities. Whatever you do will be very productive." 

11. What would your dream bedroom look like?
I really don't know.  I love to switch things up in my room, so nothing that is too stationary and can't be moved at all.  Also it would have to be a simple colour scheme for the staple items - like black and white or something, then for the accessories and bits and bobs they have to be bright colours and something I can easily switch up. 

12.  What position do you sleep in?
Okay, I wasn't sure how to describe this so I actually drew what position I normally sleep in.  



13.  What is your favourite vampire of all time? 
I would probably have to say, Klaus, I am a vampire lover and I love all things that are vampire, just Klaus I think is awesome in vampire diaries and he is a baddy but has a good side which is adorable when he shows it.  

14. What are you currently wearing on your feet? 



:)

Finally....

15. Do you have neat handwriting? Show us.  
No, I do not have neat handwriting at all.  You can see my handwriting in the top picture, and thats me trying to be neat.  Sometimes I have really nice handwriting but it always changes and ends up looking like that.  

That is the end of the tag.  

I would love to see yours responses to these questions in the comments below or if you have done this tag in a blog post or a video, link it below and I will make sure to check it out 

Have a fabulous day :)

Nivea Refreshing Facial Cleansing Wipes | Review

Hello friends :) This is just a really quick off the bat post.  I am sitting in bed watching some makeup gurus on youtube and using these Nivea Facial Cleansing Wipes to take off my makeup because I'm having a lazy cleansing day, and I took off what I could with the wipe and then I am using Simple's Purifying Cleansing Lotion just to take off any excess and I have to admit I am so impressed with these wipes!
When I looked at the cotton pad after using Simple's Lotion, there was barely anything on that pad.  Which I must say I am impressed by.  Normally after using a wipe I use another cleanser just to get all the makeup and dirt that the wipe didn't pick up, but after using these wipes, I don't feel like I need too.

I have the normal/combination skin, and they are quite soft on the skin, but not soft like it doesn't feel like it is working.  These wipes also don't dry out after you have used them, which I find other wipes sometimes do.

Overall, I really like these wipes and for the few times that I use them to remove my makeup I will be using these for quite some time.

Hope you all had a fabulous day :)
