Hunger Games TAG

Hello my lovelies!

I don't know about you guys but I am still trying to get used to this new format! Anyway, as a lot of you guys know I am slightly obsessed with The Hunger Games and if you follow me on twitter you may know that I have seen it 4 times now haha! Anyway, I found this tag which is based on all three books, so if you haven't read them yet prepare for SPOILERS FROM ALL 3 BOOKS.

I am not sure who has read the books so I don't have any specific people to tag but if you have read them I Tag YOU!!!

The Questions

1. What is your favourite book in the hunger games trilogy?

I absolutely love all three but I would have to pick the first book, it was the one that made me obsessed with the series and I love the plot!

2. How long would you last in the Hunger Games?

Realistically, about 5 minutes, I'd probably get killed straight away by one of the careers haha, if I made it past that point I would be like Foxface or Rue and just run and hide, although the completely unrealistic part of me would love to be like Katniss!

3. What is the strangest thing you thought happened in the books?

This is a major spoiler, but I was really surprised at the ending of Mockingjay when Katniss killed Coin and was allowed to live back in District 12!

4. How were you introduced to the Hunger Games?

I remember a couple of years back a guy in my class was telling me about the first book saying how amazing it was.Me, being my typical girly 15/16 year old self thought that they sounded way too violent so left it at that. Then around January of this year I began to see all of the hype forming around the movie, so many people including other girls on youtube began to vlog about how good the books were, so in February I decided to get the first book which I didn't start reading til the beginning of March I believe. My copy has now been read by six of my friends haha!

5. Favourite moment that happens in Hunger Games?

I am going to assume that this means just the first book. There's so many bits I like, but I would have to say the night before the games! I loved reading about the interviews, especially when Peeta told Ceaser that he loved Katniss. I also love how that night they both talk on the roof :)

6. Favourite Villain?

Some people count Effie as a villain so I would have to pick her as she is also one of my favourite characters. I feel like she is half a villain and half not as she is one of the only people from the Capitol who is truly aware of what is going on in the districts, but she also fully supports the games. However, she does add some comic relief in the books and her outfits seem amazing!

7. Who is your Favourite Character?

This is such a tough question but other than the obvious answer of Katniss I would have to say Peeta. Even though he is a guy I feel like I can relate to him the most out of all of the characters, he believes so strongly in staying true to himself and is so sweet!

8. What District would you live in?

I think the nicest district to live in would probably be 1 as it's industry is producing luxury goods for the Capitol. However, I would probably fit in District 12 most!

9. What was the most emotional moment in the books for you?

Either Rue or Prim's deaths I cried so much!

10. What item from home would you take into the Arena with you?

I would probably take my Tiffany heart necklace as I would actually be able to wear it and it was a gift from my parents. I feel like a piece of jewellery or something you could wear would be the best option in the arena.

11. What was the most evil plan someone made in the books?

Anything created by the Capitol was pretty evil, but I'd have to say when president Snow fed Peeta the trackerjacker poision to make him evil and to turn him against Katniss.

12. What was your favourite part of the movie?

My favourite scene in the movie was probably the training centre scene when Katniss shoots the arrow through the apple when the game makers are ignoring her! I also loved seeing the Capitol and the Arena for the first time, it was just how I imagined it to be! However, I am also obsessed with Effie's one liners :)


I hope you enjoyed this tag and comment if you do this, I would love to read your opinions!

Stay Beautiful,

More Makeup: Natural Collection, Stila + TooFaced

Hello Girlies,

It's nearly 1am, I've just been out with my friends and for some reason I feel the need to blog! Earlier today I went shopping with my sister Chloe and one of our girlfriends! Well, I went to Boots and TK Maxx and got some makeup! As I was going out this evening Chloe was kind enough to take the picture of the products for me!

Stila - TKMaxx all 3 Items - £7.99
How crazy is that? All 3 Stila products for £7.99! In the packet came:
Stila Shine Lip Colour - Chelsea 05 - RRP £13 - This is a lovely sheer corally pink.
Stila Lip Shine - Angel Shine 07 - RRP £12 - This is a fairly subtle light pink gloss!
Stila Convertible Color Dual Lip and Cheek Cream - Petunia - RRP £16 - I am a bit obsessed with this one, it's a gorgeous corally pink colour which I think will be perfect on both cheeks and lips this spring/ summer!

Too Faced Eye Shadow Duo - £2.99 
Another TK Maxx find, seriously guys get down there! I got this one in the shade "Bon Bon", as mentioned in the previous post the RRP is £14.50 so paying £2.99 is absolutely crazy! These shadows are gorgeous, I can't wait to try them out, one side is a peachy pink while the other is a shimmery taupe!
Natural Collection Moisture Shine Lipsticks - £1.99
I seriously love these lipsticks, they are so so cheap and the colours are gorgeous!
Rose Bud (Left) - This is a beautiful rosey red colour, I think it is neutral enough to wear in the day time without being my typical nude - LOVE
Rose Petal (Right) - Boots were actually having a 3 for 2 offer when I was buying these so Chloe picked up this shade too! It's a lovely natural soft pink.

I hope you enjoyed this haul! Let me know if you have found any recent cosmetic bargains!

Stay Beautiful,

Hannah xx

Mini Makeup Haul - TooFaced and Barry M

Hello Sweeties!

I hope you are having a lovely week! Sorry for the recent lack of posts, I just wanted to share a little bargain I found with you all today, I would have taken pictures but my camera is charging and it's dark!!! Basically, I quickly popped into town today to have a coffee with some friends and we went into TK Maxx only to find this:

Too Faced Eye Shadow Duo - Teddy Bear & Heaven
How much you may ask? £2.99!!! Seriously £2.99 these shades are gorgeously pigmented and are a beautiful matte brown and cream. I am slightly obsessed, I love high end make up but not high end prices so I was thrilled to find this!  The single eyeshadows retail for £13.50 in Boots so this was a steal! Go to your local TK Maxx to see what you can find!

The next thing I got doesn't even seem to be launched online yet but I promise I will post pictures tomorrow as there are no images online!!! I purchased a new Barry M nail paint in 'Silvery Lilac' it is what the name suggests but with a hint of blue in there too! They also have three other new shades which I will be purchasing in: Copper which is a true copper colour, Teal, Denim and a black polish with rainbow glitters!

Also I have added 3 pages above a current favourite songs page, a quotes page as I love writing down quotes and a rather long about me page where I completely ramble, but it gives a much more indepth insight into this little brain of mine haha! So if you feel like it you can check those pages out! :)

Stay Beautiful,

Hannah xx

Flat Friday

Hello Lovelies!

I hope you are having a fab Good Friday, I just got back from the cinema - I saw the Hunger Games for the third time with one of my friends haha! Anyway, whilst walking I thought that very soon it is not going to be Ugg boot weather so I'm in the mood to get some lovely new flats! So here's some that I have been lusting over:

RiverIsland - £20
I think these are so girly and feminine, I love the chiffon bow which is a great touch!

H&M - £7.99
My friend actually has these so I'm not sure if I'll buy them myself, but I love leopard print and these are adorable. I feel like it's a nice way to add a bold print into and outfit without being too over whelming.

ASOS - £25
I love love love these, they are so simple and black goes with everything, but I feel like the gold bow allows them to be worn casually and formally.
Red Herring at Debenhams - £18
Okay, so these remind me of little girls shoes BUT I am loving pastel colours right now and these are super sparkly and girly with a pretty peeptoe!

RiverIsland - £22
I think these shoes are a great way to keep with the colour blocking trend without going over board if it's not something you are comfortable with. I feel like the neutral colours will go with so many outfits!

Let me know what you guys think! I love wearing flats around college so let me know what some of your favourites are!

Stay Beautiful,

Hannah xx

Get To Know Me Tag

Hello Lovlies!

Happy Sunday, I hope you are all having a lovely day! I'm having a lazy day in my pajammas after a lovely sleepover with some of my girl friends last night so I thought I'd do this fun tag my sister did on her blog The Ramble Corner.

1. Do you have a middle name?
I do, my middle name is Victoria.

2. What is your Favorite subject in school?
Well while I was at school I loved English the most because I love to read. However, now I'm at sixth form my favourite subject is Sociology which they didn't offer at my school. I love how relevant it is to everyday life - I'm currently studying Crime and Deviance, it's so interesting!

3. What is your Favorite drink?
I'd have to say hazelnut hotchocolate - it is SO good! I'm a little bit obsessed!

4. What is your Favorite song at the moment?
I am a HUGE fan of The Script and I've been listening to Science and Faith so much the past few weeks, I was obsessed with the whole album last summer :)

5. What would you name your kids?
I was actually having a conversation about this the other day as one of my older friends is having a baby soon! I like the name Mia for a little girl and Oscar for a boy but this changes all of the time haha!

6. Do you participate in any sports?
I don't, unless dancing to 90s music in my friends living room on a Saturday night counts? Haha!

7. Favorite Book?
THE HUNGER GAMES! Okay I am completely, overly obsessed! In the past month I've managed to pass my copy round six of my friends haha! If you haven't read the book I cannot say enough good things about the entire series. Never have I been so captivated by a story in my entire life!

8. Favorite Color?
I don't really have a favourite colour, probably pink, purple, turquoise, silver and gold.

9. Favorite Animal?
I have to say it's a toss up between penguins and elephants they are both so cute <3 Infact here's a picture of some lovely elephants getting fed from a trip to Busch Gardens!

10. Favorite Perfume?
Boss Orange for Women <3

11. Favorite Holiday?
Christmas hands down. I absolutely love everything about it, as I have quite a big family it tends to be one of the only times of year where we see everybody. I love how everyone is so happy, I love the decorations, the food, the cosy winter clothes just everything!

12. Have you graduated high school?
Technically yes as in the UK you finish highschool at 16. However, I'm now in my second year of sixthform which is the equivalent of a Senior in America which is what many British students do before going to university!

13. Have you ever been out of the country? if so how many times?
Yes, I've been fortunate enough to go several times, the list is pretty much the same as Chloe's. I've been to France a few times for day trips, Spain several times, Feuterventura, Portugal a few times, Ibiza, Majorca, Italy, New York once and Florida three times. 

 (Times Square, New York -2011, Pisa, Italy -2011, Disney World, Florida - 2005)

14. Do you speak any other language?
Well, I speak some French, I could probably get by if I went to France but by no means am I fluent. I stopped studying French at the end of lasy year :) I wish I could speak lots of languages but I'm not particularly talented at it haha!

15. How many siblings do you have?
My twin sister Chloe and that's it!

Rocking the 90s Fashion / Fresh Prince of Bel Air look ;D

16. What is your favorite store?
I absolutely love Forever 21, particularly the one in the Stratford Westfield, I found the Oxford Street one slightly dissappointing! But I love the clothing and the price!

17. Favorite restaurant?
Unfortunately my favourite restaurant doesn't exist in the UK, but I love the Olive Garden - Italian food is my absolute favourite and everytime I've visited I've loved it! However, Nandos is always good and I also like Frankie and Bennys :)

18. Do you like school?
I'm not actually at school right now, but I love love love sixth form - okay I don't love the amount of work or exams, but I love my classes and the lovely friends I have there! :)

19. Favorite blogger?
That's mean to make me choose one so I'm going to say everyone in my side bar so:
and of course my sister Chloe!

20. Favorite movie?
Well I think we all know that The Hunger Games is currently my favourite movie <3 But I also love Burlesque, The Changeling, The Proposal, Mean Girls, School of Rock, Dirty Dancing and Easy A.

21. Favorite TV show?
My current favourite is New Girl I absolutely adore that show! I also love The IT Crowd which is a British comedy that I think is hilarious, I also love Don't Tell The Bride and I am currently loving The Apprentice.

22. PC or Mac?
PC! I've attempted to use the Macs at college but I can't get my head around them haha! :')

23. What kind of phone do you have?
I have a Nokia E72, I've had it for nearly two years now but my contract ends at the end of next month so we shall see!

24. How tall are you?
As far as I'm aware I'm 5,8  so quite tall!
