My 21st Birthday!

So on September 2nd I actually became a fully fledged adult! HA jk, I don't think I'll ever be 'adult' but I did turn 21 and, despite the constant nagging feeling that I should have my life together by now, it was pretty fun! (As you can probably tell from the photo I was very excited)

My Month - June 2016

So June has been kinda weird. I voted in my first referendum, the weather has not been unbearably hot for summer, and I pretty much spent the entire month on my new PS4. Here's some stuff I've been loving this month!

Nerdy Nails - BMO Nails

Ok, I may have taken a little blogging break for a while but I'm back and I've bought some Adventure Time nails with me! As BMO is possibly the cutest character on TV (I mean just look at that friggin adorable Pop Figure) I thought I'd dedicate all 10 of my fingernails to this cute lil' robot!

My Fictional Lady Baes

If you read my blog it's probably not going to be a surprise when I say that I love ladies. Specifically the strong kind, and by that I don't mean a female who is physically strong, but rather a well written, 3D female character. Those are the characters that fulfil my fangirl needs! So I've written down 10 of my favourite ladies that make me cry daily because of happy reasons.

Amy Watches - Jupiter Ascending (Minor Spoilers)

To be honest I am kinda nervous to watch this film because I've seen some reviews and the general consensus seems to be you either think it weirdly works or you hate it, there is no in between. So without further ado I am gonna go watch this thing and write down some thoughts I have whilst watching below. I'll see you on the other side! (Ten points to you if you just stated singing Adele)

Nerdy Nails - Wonder Woman Nails

So Batman vs Superman has just come out at the Cinema and, don't get me wrong I like Batman and Superman but I am way more excited for Wonder Woman! I am a huge fan and cannot wait to go see her in action but until then I'm gonna hold myself over with some Wonder Woman nails!

Comic Con March 2016

If you know me you probably know that I am a teensy bit of a nerd so it's no surprise that I went to Birmingham MCM last Saturday. I ended up enjoying it so much that I actually forgot to take many pictures so please accept this pre-Comic Con excited selfie of me and my sister as a main picture!

The Sims 4 Custom Content

For the last few weeks I have been completely focused on The Sims. Not even regular Sims because I found something even better - custom content. I may be a little late to the party here but ever since finding it I seem to be able to do nothing else but download new furniture/clothes for my Sims. (It may have even made me neglect my blog a tiny bit!) So I thought I would use my addiction as a great excuse for a blog post!

Nerdy Nails - Nerdy Easter Bunnies

Happy Easter! I know its in like two weeks but lets just pretend OK? My blog schedule requires it! This week I've got some Easter bunny nails comin' at ya, because like, just look at them. They're so freaking cute I can't even bear it. I added some glasses because I mean bunnies like to read too right? (Just go with it).

Maybelline Dr. Res Cue Peel Off Base Coat

I spent an entire day recently binge watching SimplyNailogical on Youtube because her nail video's are amazing and weirdly hypnotizing (maybe because she uses so much holo polish but I'm cool with it because GLITTER). Whilst watching I even learned about a new thing - nail polish base coats of the peel off kind! Anything that's going to make nail painting easier and mean I can spend less money on polish remover sounds awesome and I immediately wanted one. So I went, I bought and I tested Maybellines Dr.Res Cue peel off base coat!

Amy Watches - Deadpool

I finally did it, I finally saw Deadpool! I may be a little late to the game here but, better late than never right? Since I'm utter Marvel trash right now I thought I'd post a review (/fangirl ramblings) for my Amy watches series, so here are some thoughts I had whilst watching -

My Top 10 TV Shows

There comes a point in every nerds life where they feel like they've seen it all. Maybe they haven't actually seen it all but you can rest assured they've seen a lot and they have some (hopefully) great recommendations for what you might enjoy. I have watched a lot of television in my time so I have decided to make a list of what I think are ten of the best TV shows to watch!

Warning: my "r" key is broken and seriously malfunctioning. You'll see.

My Month - February 2016

For me February has had some ups and downs - it bought heart patterns on everything and post Valentines half price chocolate (which was great!) but it also bought a hospital trip for my Mum with it! Luckily she didn't have to stay long and came home with a clean bill of health and some half-price-chocolate-shaped presents! Here are some things I've been loving this month -

Nerdy Wishlist

As you've probably guessed I'm kind of a nerd. I like nerdy things and I always want more of them (like all of the time, give me all the Funko Pop Figures). My 'things to buy' list is getting out of control so I thought I'd share some of them with you guys to get them off my chest. Pretty sure it won't work but I can dream!

Nerdy Nails - Deadpool Nails

For this weeks nerdy nails I decided to get my Marvel fix with some cute little Deadpool nails. Can you believe that the films been out for almost two weeks and I still haven't seen it?! I'm slacking (/poor)! I loved doing these because they're relatively easy and only take 3 steps to complete. Lets get to it!

What's In My Bag?

I know, my backpack is awesome! I found it while searching on Ebay one day and couldn't resist buying it - a chance to have my very own Captain America shield AND be able to store things in it? Who could resist! At £10 and with it still standing a year after buying I can say without a doubt I love this bag! Here is some stuff I choose to entrust it with -

Pop Figure Collection

It all started back in February 2014. The place was Birmingham MCM Comic Con and there was only one thing on my mind - pop figures. Ever since I had seen a picture of a teeny tiny Loki I knew what my next obsession would be. Unfortunately my dreams of having a little Loki didn't last - 2014 was a popular time for pop figures and he was sold out. Luckily his handsome older brother Thor was sitting on the shelf just waiting for me to pick him up.

Nerdy Nails - Pokemon Valentines Nails


So Valentines Day is just around the corner and whether you have plans or not we can all still dress our nails in something pretty to mark the occasion! I thought I'd do some romantic-y nails still in keeping with my nerdy theme - Pokemon Valentines nails!

My Month - January

January has been a pretty chilled out month for me (chilled both meaning relaxing and cold, get it?). I've made New Years resolutions, broken those resolutions and eaten a lot of Chinese food. Here are some other things I've been loving this month! -

Sleek Matte Me 'Birthday Suit'

A few weeks ago I was having a YouTube binge watching session when I saw Buzzfeed's Kylie Jenner Lip Kit video. While I'm not really a fan of the Kardashians I am a big fan of lipstick so I clicked, I watched and I fell in love with the colour 'Candy K'. One tiny problem - the Lip Kits are sold out! So I turned to trusty Google to look for some cheaper dupes and I found Sleek's Matte Me lip cream in the colour 'Birthday Suit'.

Amy Watches - Agent Carter (Minor Spoilers)

Agent Carter is one of my favourite TV shows so when it returned for Series Two last Tuesday I was pretty excited! The show is set a few years after the events of 'Captain America: The First Avenger' and follows the story of Peggy Carter. She, with the help of Edwin Jarvis, tries to clear Howard Stark's name after he's accused of treason, and quite frankly Peggy kicks some serious ass.

The Perfect Perfume

A few months ago I bought this fragrance and I haven't been able to stop using it - I have sprayed it so much I think my family hate me! The packaging is so beautiful and I always feel so classy every time I use it! The main notes of the perfume are cinnamon, citrus, leather, amber and rose and overall I would say it smells very elegant.

Nerdy Nails - Star Wars Nails

Ever since I saw Star Wars: The Force Awakens I cannot stop thinking about it. It was my favourite movie of 2015 so I thought what better than to do some Star Wars themed nail art! Lets get to it!

Ten Things I'm Good At

At the beginning of this month I started a list of new years resolutions but it pretty much ended up becoming a list of depressing things I want to change about myself. As I've said in previous posts, I do not like soppy emotional things so I scrapped that idea completely, decided resolutions are not for me and wrote a post that would actually make me happy - ten things I'm good at!

Amy Watches - Sherlock: The Abominable Bride

I am a big fan of Sherlock. When January 1st came around I was so focused on the fact that Sherlock was on that I forgot for a little bit that it was actually New Years Day! With this special we're getting one Sherlock related thing per year instead of two years - I feel so spoiled. Here are some thought I had whilst watching! -

Things I Got For Christmas

So - Christmas. It came, it was awesome, it's over, but I won't be sad because I got presents! You know it's times like this I look at what people bought me and then at myself and realise "wow, I'm really nerdy". I got pretty much everything I wanted though so I am more than happy! Lets take a closer look -

Nerdy Nails - Supernatural Plaid Nails

For the first Nerdy Nails of 2016 I thought I would do some nails inspired by one of my favourite TV shows - Supernatural! As their wardrobes see to consist almost entirely of plaid shirts, I've decided to do some plaid nails as a little nod to the Winchester brother's love for them. Lets do this thing!

My Month - December

This month has been so beautifully Christmassy that I've decided to rename the entirety of 'December' to 'Christmonth'. I've had a wonderful Christmonth this year - I bought a tonne of presents, saw the new Star Wars and celebrated my brother and sister's birthdays! Here are some things I've been loving this Christmonth! -
