Songs/Videos of the week & over 6,000 views!

PINCH PUNCH FIRST OF THE MONTH! 
January was a month of stress because of exams but I thank God for getting me through it :)

Where did January actually go?
2013 called, it wants January back.
Why did January cross the road? To get to February.

I know you're in stitches right now because of my H I L A R jokes but please pull yourself together and continue reading the post.

I haven't done one of these post for ages so I thought I'd just share with you the videos I've been watching and songs I've been listening to over the past month :) 

Miguel - Do You
 Just to be clear, I don't like drugs but I do like hugs ;) you too? 
Miguel is just such an amazing artist! After the first minute of  this song, I was hooked and I've been replaying it ever since. When I'm around my mum I do prefer to sing "Do you like rugs..?" just to be on the safe side. 

Tom Fletcher -My Wedding Speech
This made me tear up so many times. I started watching it in college (like a true rebel) and got up to the part where he sings about his mum and she's crying and he's crying and I'm there crying as well! Who doesn't love a good old cry? What a lovely thing to do, I think it was way better than any speech he could have given!

The Saturdays - What about us

Has anyone else been watching Chasing The Saturdays? I couldn't wait for it to be shown over here so I've been watching it online and I love it!  They all always look amazing, their style is ON POINT. I must admit, although I like The Saturdays I don't have any of their songs on my phone but this they've released that I love. 

One Direction - Kiss You
Not sure there is one person who hasn't heard this song? One Direction have my heart. This song is just so catchy and I'm sure you all already know that they're singing to me so I won't need to mention that. 

May D - Ile Ijo
You know those days when you need to dance and shake your body? This is the song that gets me moving. I can listen to this at college anymore because my feet start moving and I receive some weird looks from the people around me. 

Robin Thicke - Superman
I hadn't heard this song until January and I am in love with it, there's no doubt about that. I love cheesy songs so this was right up my street and I feel this had just the right amount of cheese!

Jade Novah - Stay (Rihanna Cover)
This woman is amazing!  I really like what she did with the song, by transposing to a higher key. It clear to see the amount of time and effort she puts into her videos and good to see that it's being acknowledged by her viewers. 

Thanks for reading!

I recently reached over 6,000 views on my blog which to me is mind blowing ! I remember when I had 3,000 views and I wasn't sure how that could be topped. I'm grateful for every view and really do appreciate each and every one :)

Haul!

Hello!
I have been shopping and I'm here with a haul, a smaller one this time so that makes it okay..?

Asos earings - £3.50  LINK

I adore these earrings! I bought them to put on when I'm running late for college as they're so simple! Each one goes with at least one thing that I wear so I never have to spend 10 minutes looking for earrings to match again. As you can see, they come in black, rose gold and gold. 

Asos dress £9

I bought this dress in the sale also, it's sold out as well. On the website it says it's red, however it is in fact orange! I think it compliments my skin so well and I can't wait to wear it n the summer. I forgot to take a picture of it but it has a back split at the back..haha which gets just up to the back of my knees.

Asos collar necklace - £7 LINK

I think we may need a moment of silence for this collar necklace. Don't you agree? 
When I saw it, I was like wow! I've never seen anything like it and then I thought why stop there, why not make more of a statement and get it in rose gold? That is exactly what I did and I love it. 
It is also available in gold and silver.

Sleek Foundation - £1.99

I bought this foundation for £1.99! It contains 35ml and comes with a pump. It ridiculous to think that I bought my Mac Studio Fix Fluid for £20 and that only contains 30ml and I had to pay an extra £3 for a pump! 
Sleek have launched a new foundation (I think) so these were on sale so I quickly snapped them up.
It's not the best, understandably but I prefer to wear this to college rather than my Mac one; at the end of the day, it is only college!

Daisy Street Jacket - £16.99
I had to do a whole seperate post on this jacket because I love it that much so I'll put that here.

Coconut lip balm - £0.99
I recently used up my tub of vaseline so I decided to put this lip balm which was only 99p! I love the smell of coconut and it is incredible moisturising on my lips. I put it before applying lipstick, there's nothing worse than dry lips! 

Wet n Wild lipstick in Sugar Plum Fairy - £1.29 LINK
I ordered this from eBay thinking it was a burgundy lipstick and I was disappointed when I realised it wasn't but I fell it love with it once I started using it. It is a pinky nude on my lips and I love wearing it as it doesn't look like I'm wearing anything at all! I never used to think a nude lip would suit me but  this lipstick has certainly proven me wrong.

New Look Hat - £5.00
I'm sure you've seen beanies everywhere now. My poor little ears are always suffering because of the cold so I'm happy I bought this hat. My mum has decided to steal it but I'll let her off (not that I have a choice seeing as I lost hers)

Tumblr Thoughts #3


MY EXAMS ARE OVER! 
I've wanted to be able to say that for so long! I had my Law exam on Monday and it went well, better than I expected so I'm thankful to God. 
In high school after an exam, we'd chill for the next lesson and do some colouring in but at college the hard work continues. :(

I'm back again with some pictures from tumblr. A picture can say so much so I don't feel the need to write about each one. These pictures do tell a vague story about me. I reblog things that are cute, funny or evoke a certain feeling within me. Enjoy!

Daisystreet Jacket


HELLO!
 It's 4:39am, I'm not too sure what I'm doing up but I thought I'd just write this post. 
I'm always happy on Fridays because that is the day that when I get back from college, I fling my bag anywhere, get changed and jump into bed and watch YouTube videos. 

The picture above is not looking so great because it was taken at 10pm and I was tired. 

I recently discover daisystreet.co.uk. What first attracted me to them were their midi dresses BUT then I saw this jacket and I was sold! I had to call an emergency meeting (over Facebook) with my friends just to weigh up the pros and cons of the jacket. This is why you need good friends when making life changing decisions..

Burgundy is my favourite colour and when I saw the sleeves, I just knew it had it be mine. It  is £16.99 reduced from £42.99! What more could a girl want?!
I'm happy I ordered it in a size 12 because I can wear thick jumpers underneath it. 
It arrived on the morning of my Psychology exam but I didn't wanna open it incase I didn't like it as I knew I'd feel disappointed for the whole day, a little bit OTT? haha 

I opened it and I immediately fell in love with it. 
Sometimes, when I'm having a bad day or I just can't handle Law revision anymore, I look it and everything just seems to be better. I joke..kinda

Basically, I love it! It's so different to any jacket I've ever owned and I've recieved so many compliments in the past two or three days that I have worn it.
 This has to be one of my best buys of 2013 and we're only 18 days in!

I'm sure you've all seen the snow by now. I LOVE snow. I live in an enclosed area so it makes my street look beautiful as no one has stepped in it yet. Everything just looks so clean and white and wonderful. 

Thanks for reading!

Get to know me Tag!

Hello! Doing this tag incase you'd like to know me better. I have a Law exam on monday so all my free time has been and will be dedicated to revising for it so here's the tag!

 1.       Are you named after anyone?
Nope, not that I'm aware of.
2.       When was the last time I cried?
Yesterday, I was watching the Pursuit of Happyness and it brought a tear to my eye. It weird because I cry at things that happen to other people but I don't cry if I'm upset. 
3.       Do you have kids?
Yeah. Bonquisha, Tyron and noidon'treallysha.
4.       If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
I think I would be. I would LOVE to see myself through someone else's eyes just for a day. 
5.       Do you use sarcasm a lot?
Nooooooo haha I don't use it A LOT but when I do use it, it's obvious....or is it? 
6.       Will you ever do a bungee jump?
I don't think so. If  I had no choice but to do it for example, if it was for charity or a good cause, I would do it. Saying that, I went on one rollercoaster in Blackpool and I haven't been on one since then.
7.       What’s your favourite cereal?
Weatabix, cocopops and cornflakes are the ones for me. I could eat them for breakfast (duhhh) lunch and dinner.

What they're wearing.
9.       What’s your eye colour?
Brown.

10.   Scary movies or happy endings?
Happy endings! I love it when everything works out and I can have a little cry and be happy for the characters who aren't real haha

11.   Favourite smells?
I love the smell of my mum's cooking and peri peri chicken!

12.   Summer or Winter?
Summer is tooo hot for me so I'd have to say winter and I love snow!

13.   Computer or television?
Laptop! I could watch whatever is on the television on my laptop. 

14.   What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home?

 Berlin or France, which is furthest from UK? 


15.   Do you have any special talents?

I sing and I can eat a full packet of strawberry laces in 30 minutes. No need for the applause, I am a human being just like you. 

16.   Where were you born?
Lagos, Nigeria.


17.   What are your hobbies?

Reading, laughing, writing and singing.


18.   Do you have any pets?

I'm not a big fan of animals. I like them from afar.


19.   Favourite movie?

The Sound of Music!

20.   Do you have any siblings?
1 sister. I want more but that would involve an awkward conversation with the parents!

Thanks for reading and I hope you'll know me that little bit better ;)

Wet n Wild Xplode Brilliant Lipstick



 LINK

First things first, do you like my wonder woman jumper?

I'm back with another lipstick review.
I don't know why I keep buying so many lipsticks but there just something about lipsticks especially ones that are burgundy/plum that leave me wanting more.
 I ordered it from a seller on eBay. It's important to know if it's safe to buy from a seller by looking at how high the positive feedback is. This seller has received 99.9% feedback.

This lipstick is amazing for it's price!
It's moisturing and has got a bit of a shine to it as you can see in the picture. It lasts for about 4 to 5 hours which is good in my opinion as it is only £1.45 with delivery of 50p
I went for a colour that was "safe" because I knew that it would look good on me as I have other lipsticks similar to this.

I wish it had a name, it's in the shade E84517 which is very bland and just sounds like someone decided to just throw a letter and a few numbers together.
It took about 3 or 4 days to get to me which I was very happy with.

Overall, I'd definitely buy this lipstick again.

I had my first exam today which went alright, I think! I just pray my efforts and sleepless nights have paid off. One down. One to go.

Thanks for reading!

Tumblr Thoughts #2


Hellooo! :)
I'm back again with some picture from tumblr. A picture can say so much so I don't feel the need to write about each one. These pictures do tell a vague story about me. I reblog things that are cute, funny or evoke a certain feeling within me. 



















They recorded the soundwaves of them saying "I do" made it into a canvas and put it in their bedroom!










And I love you too Michael!
