Being Poorly.

Now as I have been ranting about it all week I'm sure you know I have a cold. No scrap that - I have the mother of all colds. I am in no mood to blog about products which I cannot keep on my face due to the constant watering of my eyes but as I am bed ridden I still want to blog!

So here it is...the ups and downs of colds!
(Note: this is just a silly post and hopefully it will make you laugh/relate to me!)

The Positives.

All the junk food you can get away with eating.
Not having to go to work/school/uni.
You can catch up with all your guilty pleasures on TV.
Your boyfriend actually gets off his ass & does things without you asking.
You can get away with no make up days (A chance to constantly slap on moisturiser)
Not using products/heat on your hair for a few days (my hair is always so nice after a week of being poorly!)

The Negatives

When your nose hurts from using tissues too much.
The taste of nasty medicines.
The guilt/weight from eating all that junk food.
Utter boredom of missing out on social events.
The ability to not see through watery eyes.
The way I can barely taste anything.

And that's all I've got right now!

Do you have anything to add? I'd love to hear from you!

I'm off to watch Gossip Girl, Geordie Shore & hopefully feel better enough to work tomorrow!

13 Questions

Today's post should be a Glossybox post but they took my box to the depot as it didn't fit in my letterbox and let's face it - it is just too damn cold to go outside (I'm wearing my coat inside!)

I have been selling tickets for my Uni Event all morning - my last ever Uni event for my degree! We are doing a late Chinese New Year celebration for the International students, a formal type of affair with champagne, photographer, buffet & performances. It should be an interesting night & I've put a lot of effort into it so an A grade would be much appreciated!

I haven't actually been tagged to do this but thought I would do it nonetheless. Hopefully you might get to know me a little better!

1. What do you order at Starbucks?

I'm lactose intolerant so a either a soy caramel latte or a soy caramel frappucino! I miss whipped cream on top SO bad.

2. What's the on thing in your wardrobe you can't live without?

I love buying new clothes all the time but would have to say my Topshop Andre lace up boots. They are perfect for going out at night as they are so comfortable & also I'm just as tall as my boyfriend them and not taller! I constantly go back to them.

3. What's one thing that most people don't know about you?

I'm a hopeless romantic.

4. What's one thing you want to do before you die.

Go to Antarctica and see penguins in their natural habitat. If that fails I want to go to Penguin Island in Australia to see little penguins.

5. What's the one food you cannot live without?

I thought about the food I always grab and I love variety and most foods but I love BANANAS.

6. What's one quote that you live your life by?

Don't worry. Be happy.

7. What do you like and dislike about the YouTube community?

Although I don't video myself, I love watching other peoples. I think it's a great creative outlet. I don't like the negativity; you put yourself on show and people knock you down. And you just know these are people who are too scared to do it themselves.

8. What's your number 1 song on your iPod/iTunes?  

Beyonce's Love on Top. Constantly playing this at the moment.

9. What kind of style would you describe yourself as having?

I like colourful clothes but do have a special place in my heart for black; sleek, stylish & flattering! I like to be comfortable and would never wear something I feel silly in - I guess this means I'm not the tightest trend follower but like to incorporate trends in small ways into my wardrobe.

11. Two hobbies?

Blogging is my main one right now. I wish I had time to cook and bake more as I love spending an afternoon in the kitchen with the music blaring. I find myself mainly being with friends if I'm not doing anything else. OH I love going to cinema too!

12. Two pet peeves.

Lateness. I hate people being late. I understand when there is a valid excuse but I am always early for everything or at least on time and I think it's so ignorant when people have no excuse to be late.

People who have their phones out at the dinner table. Your world is not going to fall apart in 15 minutes, is it? No, didn't think so! PUT IT AWAY!

13. Guilty Pleasure?

Sweets. I need to give them up. Actually just food in general.
