A BEAUTIFUL DAY // A BEAUTIFUL FRIEND.

I went for tea and cake (and mulled wine, of course!) this afternoon at the 'borrowed' house of one of my oldest friends today. I had a really lovely time talking to everyone there, and of course, catching up with my friend. We met when I was 5 and she was 4 at the local beach where I live, and although she lives in the big city, and I don't, we always see each other as regularly as possible. I love catching up for old time's sake, and we both always have so much to talk about, and considering we both adore fashion and makeup, it's not hard for us to get into a deep conversation.
I wish I'd taken a snap of the fabulous naughty treats that were on offer, such as gold topped brownie bites, and millionaire shortbread, (being partly Scottish, this girl loves her shortbread!) so that was a magnificent treat!
I also got a new video filmed, edited, and uploaded today, so if you haven't checked it out, go check it out! I admit my editing went a little wonky in one place, so my apologies, as I said, I'm still learning, so it isn't 100% perfect yet. Still making myself check if things are in focus can also be my slip up!
But anyway, a beautiful ending, to a quiet, peaceful Christmas eve. Tomorrow is going to be filled with wonder.



Love,

Samantha.

PRIM & PROPER // CHRISTMAS TIME STYLE.

What better time to go all dressy than at Christmas? I've been going MAD in the shops with Christmas outfits (dresses to be honest!) So I'm in a hurry as we have some guests coming over soon to have lunch with us, so this is a quick flick through of two dresses I've been adoring!
 
 
 
Dress: Primark
Shoes: Office.
 
Dress: Primark
So, just a quick OOTD post, I'm currently looking like the final image I posted, since I just got a quick snap!
 
Have a wonderful Sunday!

WONDERFUL WINTER // CHRISTMAS IS COMING.


I have to admit, I absolutely adore this time of year. Not more than summer, no, but I do love the things that winter brings. It brings the opportunity to have lit open fires, and with that, roasting chestnuts or marshmallows. Another thing I love is the uncertainty of snow, just the thought of it can fill me with excitement. There was one year, I believe 2011 in January when it snowed on my birthday! It was thrilling and exciting, because I was able to spend my birthday tobogganing behind my school on an unused field with friends.

Of course, the greatest experience Winter brings is Christmas. It's the festive thrill that is almost contagious, and spreads from person to person. And the fact that it's the one time of year that you can have entire pamper days, and not feel even remotely guilty, whereas in summer, you feel you should be doing something outside, and taking full advantage of the good weather, since it is so unusual in Great Britain.

Another thrill is the opening of advent calendars, the giving and exchanging of gifts. I've already done my Christmas shopping for my mum, and I have my 'me to you bear' advent calendar on the go (who says an eighteen year old girl can't have an advent calendar? Although I do believe that once you reach this age, you should upgrade to a slightly more grownup version, such as the Benefit 'Count Down To love' Calendar!!)
 
And of course, there is the coming of a new year. Does anyone else feel like this year has literally flown by? That brings about new years resolutions and the actual calculation of what one has achieved this year. That'll come later.


Oh, and of course, there's the right to wear silly christmas jumpers, just because you can, and no-one can tell you it's silly, because it is the time of year when you can get away with it.

I'm just thrilled to be able to have some time away from college, and to be able to relax, focus on myself, my health and of course have some time on my hands to make more videos, edit, process and upload them. And of course, that ocassional pamper day in between!
 
So a Very Merry Christmas to all who read this.

25 FACTS ABOUT ME // 100 SUBSCRIBERS EDITION.


Hey guys.


So today I decided that to celebrate gaining 106 subscribers, I would do something a little bit different. Something that means you can all get to know me a bit better, and at more of a personal level. Let’s get started!


1) I love cats. (You already knew this didn’t you?) I am not the hugest dog fan, but I do like some breeds of dog. I do get a little nervous around them though.

2) My favourite colour is blue. I like really beautiful turquoise blues, nothing too dark like navy, but nothing too pale so that it’s almost white! Powder blue is my preference!

3) I love cooking. Baking in particular, I’m wheat intolerant, so I make all my products wheat free so that I can eat them!

4) I have a slight addiction to homemade wheat free pizza. Mozzarella and parma ham topped is my favourite.

5) I’m afraid of the dark.

6) I can play one instrument: the piano. I had lessons from the age of eleven to fourteen. I achieved a grade three, and then I gave it up. I do almost regret giving it up, but I don’t have the greatest attention span.

7) I don’t eat seafood. Of any sort. Not even cod. I cannot stand it.

8) I wear glasses for short sightedness. I have to wear them every day, otherwise I can’t see anything, but I tend to wear contact lenses. Bring on laser surgery!

9) I’ve only ever had one job; I did waitressing for a summer, and after that, I swore I’d never waitress again. It gave me the motivation I required to push myself harder in college, because I was not compatible with waitressing. It didn’t suit me or my personality at all.

10)      I’d rather be very early for something, rather than very late. As a result of this, I always arrive to events with time to spare, I’d rather be prepared to wait for something than arrive and find I’ve missed an opportunity.

11)      When I am not writing my blog, making, editing and processing YouTube videos, I like to watch shows such as Lewis, Midsomer Murders, Antiques Roadtrip and Bargain Hunt. The reason for this is down to my grandma, whom I lost in 2011. We used to watch all these programmes together, and I’ve carried on the tradition ever since. I just can’t get enough of them.

12)      I’m not the best athlete. I used to swim competitively, and I still can swim a good race here and there, but not like I used to. As I said, I’m just not that good at sports. I also enjoy tennis, and volleyball, so if forced to play a sport, it would have to be volleyball, where I can become quite competitive.

13)      I’ve never had an ‘actual’ boyfriend. I guess I’ve just not met him yet, either that, or the person I did ‘like’ for a very long time was always taken, so no surprises I didn’t do anything about that then!

14)      I’m very traditional when it comes to relationships, and always believe the most romantic ‘asking out’ should be done by the man, but in modern times, it’s equally males to females that ask each other out, although I’d always prefer to be asked by the man.

15)      I adore candles and fairy lights, I find that they can brighten up any room and make me feel positive at any time!

16)      My birthday is the 10th of January. I will be 19, and I’m quite excited.

17)      I love traditional retro sweets! I’m talking Milky Way Magic Stars, Millions (Bubblegum or cola flavoured, of course!), and sherbet lemons.

18)      I occasionally like to eat junk food, but it is on rare occasions, I’d rather eat something like homemade pizza, where I know exactly what I’ve put into my food!

19)      My favourite subject at college is a mixture of Environmental studies and Geography.

20)      I can’t wait to leave college, I feel like school days should be over!

21)      I have one pet; a tabby cat called Gü.

22)      I love winter for the reason that you can have a lit fire, and can roast chesnuts on it, and of course, there’s Christmas! Other than that, I much prefer the summer, but I don’t tend to sit in the sunshine for long, I just can’t take being still in the heat!

23)      I love swimming in swimming pools, but I never swim in the sea. I used to, but as I got older, I began to feel the cold more, and living in the UK, the sea temperature is always very low, so I don’t tend to go in the sea.

24)      My hair is naturally poofy and slightly wavy. I wish I had straight hair all the time, all the straightening is so damaging to it!

25)      I am 5 foot 4 and 1/2! I’m quite small, but curvy, so I try to utilise this the best ways that I can!



So that was my 25 facts about me! I hope it helps you all to get to know me a little better!
