My typical day

a6c48520b772d6e843e0d60cf866b2bf

When my alarm goes off I really do struggle to get out of my snuggly warm bed I am good though i will only snooze it once occasionally twice before I get my bum out of bed and make some breakfast. I am one of those that can’t go without breakfast I think its when I was younger I was told it was the most important meal of the day and that’s now instilled in my head.

Off I go and get myself ready for the day whether its a day in or out I think its best to get ready first thing, I usually do a deep cleanse the night before, so I make sure my skin is prepped for my makeup and the rest of me squeaky clean too.

I am quite routine with my makeup I am not too adventurous so it takes me about 15 mins tops. I look like I have some on but not too made up. I save that for special occasions. That’s when I need to watch the youtube tutorials for tips.

I get myself dressed and more than likely since I am a home bird I am in for the majority of the day so I grab all my technology bits such as my laptop, mobile and headphones. This is where I will do some blogging, online shopping or watch some youtube or Netflix.

Being a typical woman I have some days where I am waiting for a parcel to turn up with some goodies in that takes forever to get here. Why couldn’t the driver be psychic and know I hate waiting and deliver to me first.

I of course have my lunch and I must confess I am a bit of a chocoholic so I snack on whatever chocolate bar I fancy on that day. A little bit of what you fancy does you good or so I’ve been told.

I do love my music I can’t go a day without listening to it so out come the earphones and on goes Spotify. I love how you can get lost in a song or an album and travel back in time. Sometimes I do take the odd selfie if I am feeling really good about how I look, self-love is good for you anyway.

After my tea when I am watching the soaps or some documentary I grab myself an Ovaltine or hot chocolate. I am not that much of a hot drink person apart from these two. It helps me settle down for the night.

Then off I go to bed and I generally have a nosey on social media and have a quick chat with my friends on there then its lights out and to the land of nod.

Q AND A WITH SWEET ALLURE

Today’s feature on the blog is Tarnya from Sweet Allure

img_3153

I have been following Tarnya for some time and I was delighted when she wanted to come on my blog to do a Q and A.

so without further ado  let’s jump in with the Questions

1) What are your top 3 favourite books?

I couldn’t possibly pick just ONE book from the Harry Potter series, so I’ll have to say the entire series as my first choice!

Then I absolutely love Survivor by Chuck Palahniuk, it’s dark but I love all of his books.

Then lastly I’d have to say Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur, I read it recently and it really rekindled my love for poetry.

2) What is your favourite cruelty-free brand/product?

I love Nars, Charlotte Tilbury and The Ordinary for CF make up! Also Superdrug own brand is good and affordable too!

3) What did you want to be when you were asked at the start of school and has it changed?

I wanted to be a Vet when I was younger, but then I heard you had to put your arm up a cows bottom and changed my mind! I’ve never really known what I want to do, but I’m happy with my current job as a games tester in the Video Game Industry.

4) What are your favourite arty things to create?

I actually am obsessed with photography, it’s my favourite thing. I want to try and incorporate more photography with art like an art journal or scrapbook this year for fun.

I want you to bear in mind this is just the basics that i have in my bag at one time as a woman you know our handbags feel like we have bowling balls in them and have sooo much stuff we really don’t need.

  • As i love to write i make sure i have my great ideas notepad and a pen.
  • My boots floral Make up bag with my concealer, to hide my dark circles, my eyeliner and a pink lippy of course
  • I always have some sort of hand cream and The Body Shop Strawberry one smells so good and leaves my hands so soft.
  • I either have a chocolate bar or something sweet in my bag as i’m addicted to sugar and at the mo its Tangfantastics.
  • Something a lot of you wont have is catheters in your bag i have about 5-6 in my bag at a time as i have a bladder stoma so when nature calls i’m prepared for it.
  • Everyone needs some paracetamol in their bag for when pain strikes.
  • I have my Sony A5000 camera for taking photos of whatever catches my eye i like to capture things in the moment.
  • I am not a huge fan of chewing gum so a packet of soft mints it is. your breath is always better being minty fresh.
  • My purse was a charity shop find. It was brand new and still inits wrapper so i thought for £3 your coming home with me.
  • A pair of Sunnies as British weather is so unpredictable you never know when you are going to need them.
  • My Iphone because who leaves home without theirs these days…Not me.
  • My HP Stream laptop as a blogger its always great to write your posts up wherever you are and this one has a touch screen too so i can draw on it too which i love.

DIY Laptop Cover

So you buy a laptop and you suddenly get bored of the colour, or it looking so normal. Ok I’ve had mine nearly a year so I haven’t just defaced it.

DISCLAIMER: THIS DIY IS SAFE FOR YOUR LAPTOP AND IS REMOVABLE AT ANY TIME

Here are the things you will need

Oh and some scissors. They are the most important as without them you’d of botched it up straight away.

  • Roll your sticky back plastic out and place your laptop on top
  • Cut around it being sure you have enough leave a bit extra
  • Peel back a corner and place at the top and gently work down pressing any bubbles out of it on the way.
  • When it’s on completely go around the outside and tidy up with a small pair of scissors.
  • Use the hairdryer on a low setting to soften the edges to stick to the laptop to give it a more finished look.


There you go you now have given your laptop a lovely makeover and a bit of individuality. Totally unique to you.
