Life Lately

Image
Hi guys! I just thought I'd do a quick update on what I've been up to over the last two months as I feel that I've been pretty busy with uni and life in general. So here's a bit of a round up! I went to Centre Parcs back in January on a bit of a holiday. Turns out I quite like cycling! A lot of takeaways and eating in a lot of restaurants. I feel like this is all I ever do. I never used to be like this and now I'm piling on the pounds but the food is much tastier than the food I cook for myself.  I finally got a hair cut. I've been putting it off for months and I finally caved in and did it, it looks so much better and healthier now.  Day-tripping to Cardiff was awesome! It's a really pretty city which I  had never visited before and is well worth the trip. We visited the Dr Who Experience which I blogged about!  Whilst in Cardiff we of course took the opportunity to see who else but Sum 41. Fifteen year old Amy would be very happy. 

4 Ways to get the Perfect Pink Pout

I've recently been loving wearing a pink lip. I mean who doesn't? We all often tend to save our red lip for the evening or a more glamorous look and the playful pink comes out during the day. I didn't realise how many pink lipsticks I owned so I thought it would be a good idea to share with you my top 4 for all occasions.  First up we have the Mac Vegas Volt . It doesn't completely show up in photos to its true colour but it is actually a bright coral shade - a sort of orangey pink colour. This is a shade I opt for in the Spring or Summer as it's bright and cheery and gives me that summer feeling.  Next we have my super budget Pink-brown shade from MUA in shade 11 . I have always been an advocate for MUA products, particularly their lipsticks as I find they are just as good or even better than the more pricer products. This a perfect nude shade for everyday wear and isn't too drying on the lips.  The brightest of them all i

Doctor Who Experience Cardiff

My name is Amy and I am a Whovian. This probably isn't something that has come across on my blog but I can assure you, it is true. Recently my lovely boyfriend treated me to tickets for the Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff which, as you can image, was a dream come true. I wasn't entirely sure what to expect. I imagined simply an exhibition of all things timey wimey. However it was much more than this. As you enter, you are guided through the Gallifrey Museum into a Doctor Who themed adventure, experiencing what it is like to enter the TARDIS and embark on an adventure with the current Doctor, portrayed by Peter Capaldi. This section of the experience is clearly aimed for kids but I must admit, I too enjoyed it. It was a great experience to stand in a replica TARDIS and feel hear the Daleks shouting exterminate. A delight for any whovian. (note: you can't take photos/videos in this first section) After this section of the tour, you are unleashed into a two flo

February Fashion Fix: Style Inspiration for The Next Month

    Sources:  1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 We all need a bit of style inspiration from time to time, especially when it's so chilly still. Sometimes we can't help but dress practically in as many layers as possible but it's time to add some style back into my outfits so I've been perusing the one and only Pinterest for ideas. I will never be able to recreate these gems but they're giving me a push in the right direction.  Do you have any fashion inspiration to share? What have you been wearing whilst it's been super cold and rainy?  Don't forget to like my Facebook  page and follow me on bloglovin  and instagram: amyleehaynes!
