25 Facts About Me

Wednesday, 30 January 2013

My blog is fairly new. And I've never properly introduced myself. 
I saw the '25 facts about me' post trending like crazy lately
and thought this would be the perfect way to start.

  1. My fingers are double jointed and bend some crazy ways.

2. I absolutely hate the sound of people eating. Eating noises of any kind make me curl up and rock back and forward.

3. I played the piano until I was 12 and reached grade five. But gave it up when I started high school. Damn peer pressure! 

4.  I had been seeing my bf for 2 weeks when I fell out with my flatmate and she moved out. I couldn't afford to stay alone so took a chance and let him move in with me. It paid off and have been together three years in February.

5. I had braces from the age of 15 until I was 18. And although I was the only one at that age to have them, it was so worth it :) 

6. I have never broken any bones. Invincible.

7. I am obsessed with chocolate. Especially Twirls. 

8. I ate a full mini squid (tentacles and everything) as part of a drinking game. *shiver*

9. I have been to Portugal over 20 times with my family since I was a child and still love it.

10. My sister and I share the same brain. We think of the same things at the same time. The same things always happen to us. Once we both cut our ankles in the exact same place, on the exact same day in the exact same circumstances. 

11. I am a cat person. I like other people's (little) dogs but could never own one myself. 

12. I've never seen Twilight, Lord of the Rings, Avatar or Harry Potter. 

13. I check my phone (emails, facebook, twitter, instagram) about 10 times an hour. Sad. 

14. Mean girls is my favourite film ever. 

15. I have been listening to my Amy Winehouse album in my car for years and still love it.

16. I love making lists. (currently loving this)

17. My middle name is Sine.

18. I never sleep past 9am .. even at the weekend. 

19. I absolutely hate food shopping and will do anything to avoid going.

20. If I watch a film at home, I am guaranteed to fall asleep within half an hour. I don't know the ending to most films unless I've seen it in the cinema. 

21. I love to sell clothes on eBay to keep my wardrobe up-to-date. 

22. I buy snack-a-jacks as a 'low calorie snack' and then eat five. 

23. I love art and drawing. 

24. I look forward to doing my make up in the morning. 

25. I've been trying to grow my hair *forever*. I'm sure its growing up the way! 

DIY sparkly nails

I cannot handle wearing false nails. I am probably one of the last known girls on the planet who doesn't wear acrylic or false nails and would be lying if I said I didn't feel *slightly* left out when the conversation comes up about 'who does your nails?' .. 'how much are yours?'..blah blah blah. 

However, I am willing to accept this to protect my nails from the horror that is false nails. I succumbed to the pressure once and paid £25.00 for a lovely french manicured look and within days had my nails soaking in *acetone free* nail polish remover.  (yes I misunderstood instructions). 

I now stick to what I know and do my nails myself.  More fun and less expensive.

Recently, I have been loving glitter tips on my nails and tried this look out for a more natural look. 

Heres a step by step guide for what I did  ...

1. Remove any nail polish to start with a fresh natural nail.

2. Apply two coats of french pink colour.

 I used Rimmel 60 Seconds in Princess Pink (200)

3. I used Models Own Champagne Glitter on the tips in a french manicure style. I find a good way of doing this is to hold the brush with one hand and place my finger underneath to swipe it under the brush as usually the hand that is being painted is a lot steadier than the one holding the brush. (Is this just me?)

4. To create a gradient glitter effect, I then used Models Own Hed Kandi Disco Heaven nail polish. After dipping the brush, I dabbed quite a lot back into the bottle to make sure the glitter was quite sparse on the brush. Then begin to create the gradient. As it builds up, you can begin to use the glitter mostly on the ends.

5. Finish with one coat of clear gloss, clear up around the edges with a cotton bud and you're done <3
