Tips and Tricks Tuesday #6

Dry Your Nail Varnish Faster

Hey guys,
Who hates waiting for their nail varnish to dry? Stupid question... Everyone! I love having my nails painted but I hate painting them because it just takes far too long for them to dry. I don't want to waste my money on buying quick drying sprays or top coats. But now I don't have to.

All you need to do is fill your basin with cold water and put our freshly washed nails in, the cold water will help them to dry a lot quicker. Hold them under for about a minute and then test them quickly, if they're not quite dry then hold them under for another minute and then they should be alright :)

Life Update: A-Levels

Hey guys,
So I recently got my results back from my first year of A-Levels and I thought I would give you guys a little update. I did a lot better than I thought I would. I thought I would be lucky if I got C's which is such a huge differnece from how optimistic I was at the start of the year. A-Levels are a lot harder than I thought they would be!

I was really worried when I was going for my results as I didn't think I would get above a C in any of my subjects, especially in Literature, where my teacher hadn't even taught us the poem that was on the exam, but thankfully I had taught myself it the day beforehand.

I was pleasantly surprised though when I opened the envelope. :) I managed to get three B's and an A, so I was really pleased!

English Literature - A
English Language - B
Media Studies - B
History - B

I hope all of your exams went well and that you got what you wanted (Or better)  in your results!

Tips and Tricks Tuesday #5

Baby Powder as Dry Shampoo

Hey guys,
So I'm sure you've probably heard of this one, it's pretty well known but I thought I would still add it to my 'Tips and Tricks Tuesdays' as some people might not have thought of it. 

I have my baby powder in a cute bowl in my draw and all I do is put some onto my fluffy brush and then I just tap it onto my hair. Once I have enough on I'll just shake it through my hair with my hands and make sure that you can't tell I used any.

Another trick is to do this at night and then put your hair up into a bun, the next morning not only will your hair be grease free, but it'll also have plenty of volume!

OOTD - 18.08.14

 Hey guys,
I'm going to try and post an 'outfit of the day' every Monday so make sure to follow me on Bloglovin so you don't miss out.

I've had these shorts for so long but I just really love them!

I got this top in Debenhams for £3.50, £3.50 for something by Henry Holland is so crazy! It was such a bargain, and it's so comfy! I do worry that it's actually a pajama top because the material is so soft, but even if it is, oh well, I'll wear it anyway.

Breakfast Time

Hey guys,
Whenever we move into the warmer months I always prefer having fruit as a snack as I just like having something fresher and sweeter than chocolate. It's not even that I'm trying to be healthy, I just prefer fruit over chocolate and crisps whenever the sun starts getting out more. Because of this I thought I would do a post on what I've been loving for breakfast!

I've been really into having waffles at the minute. I just think they're super tasty and they're more interesting than cereal or toast as that's what I've always had for my breakfast. Plus, they're super easy to make, you just take them out of the packaging, pop them in the toaster (I put them on the lowest setting as I just like to warm them up a bit).

Instead of putting jam or chocolate spread on them I've been really enjoying putting lemon juice on them. I like to have lemon in my water so with the piece that's left over I squeeze it onto my waffles and it makes them super tasty! Once that's done I put nine raspberries onto each waffle and then they're done. They taste super yummy and I like to think it's healthy because of the lemon juice and raspberries... I mean, it's healthier than nutella.

I like to have a glass of water with my breakfast as I'm trying to drink more water so starting the day off with a glass is a really good way to do it. I don't know about you guys but I really don't like the taste of water, I know it's got no taste but I still don't like it. To fix that I just put a slice of lime and a slice of lemon into my drink and it makes it taste a lot better. Plus, lemon water is really good for you!

What are you guys enjoying for your breakfast?
