Celebrity Style Icon Series: Jennifer Lawrence

The last time I posted one of these was in November, so I thought that it was about time to do another one! I instantly knew who I was going to choose when I thought about this post and that is Jennifer Lawrence! She has always been a style icon to me and never fails to amaze with with her street style or red carpet style! Since Mockingjay Part 2 has recently been released, we have seen a lot of Jennifer Lawrence on the red carpet and I think that this is the best she has ever looked! I loved looking at all the outfits she decided to wear and I thought that they were all gorgeous. I also really love her hair at the minute too and its the exact colour that I want! It was hard to narrow down the looks for this blog post, but here are a few of my favourites...

Black is my favourite colour when it comes to clothing so there was no surprise that I loved these outfits! I love the black dresses for the red carpet but I also love the suit style outfits too! The last outfit is my favourite and I think it is something that I would love to wear!

Jennifer Lawrence has also been wearing a lot of white too and I think she looks gorgeous! These are defiantly some of my favourites! Although a lot of the outfits that she wears are really simple, she still looks amazing and so glamorous! I think it looks perfect with her hair and she is my number one inspiration! I love watching interviews with Jennifer Lawrence as she has the best personality and I always want to see what she's wearing.

I also really love Jennifer's street style as well. This look has been one of my favourites recently but there are loads of outfits that I have loved! Her fashion style is very similar to mine and her red carpet choices are what I would choose if I was going to a premiere. I also have been loving her makeup looks as well at the minute. She has been wearing a gorgeous red lip a lot which goes really well with the black and white dresses!

I hope you enjoyed reading this post and I will be continuing this series on my blog next month! I hope you all have an amazing New Years Eve and I cant wait to see what 2016 brings! I think its going to take me a while to get used to saying 2016 as its come around so quickly! I have lots of ideas planned for the blog next year so there's lots to look out for! I will see you on Saturday with another lifestyle post and the first one of 2016!

Leeds German Market

Yesterday, I went to Leeds German Market with my two friends Chloe and Elspeth. I have never been to this before but its something that I've wanted to do for years. I really enjoyed it and it definitely made me feel really festive! I loved all of the little stalls and the atmosphere is really great too! We went during the day time so I didn't get to see it in the dark with all the lights lit up, but I'm sure it looks amazing! I didn't buy anything but I thought all the stalls were really cute and its a place to go to get you in the Christmas mood. I had a really lovely day with Chloe and Elspeth, we exchanged Christmas presents and did a bit of shopping too. I took lots of pictures for this post so I hope you enjoy!

All of the stalls sold loads of Christmas things and lots of little cute things too! 

I really love going to festive events because I sometimes get out of the festive mood so I like going to things like this! I also try and watch a lot of Christmas films so that I stay excited for Christmas. I cant believe how close Christmas is now, this year has gone so so fast! I will be back on Tuesday with another beauty post and the last post before Christmas!

The Christmas Tag!

This week I decided to do the Christmas Tag with my sister. My sister is 19 years old and her name is Shannon, she agreed to do the Christmas Tag with me as we thought it would be an interesting post to do! I really enjoy reading other peoples posts about Christmas so I decided that this would be a good post as you get to find out everything that we like about Christmas! There are ten questions in total and I chose these questions from a few Christmas Tag videos on YouTube that I have watched...

1. When do you start getting excited for Christmas?

S: October! I'd say after Halloween is over because the next thing is Christmas.
K: I would say in November, maybe half way through November as things start getting really festive. I do like the longer run up to Christmas!

2. Do you still have an advent calendar?

S: No...I had one last year but this year I didn't bother.
K: Well I still have one! This year I got the Milky-bar one and I will get one every year because its chocolate, so why wouldn't I?

3. Favourite Christmas films?

S: The Grinch is my favourite and always has been! I also like The Muppet's Christmas Carol, the first Home Alone and...Frozen.
K: Wait, is that a Christmas film?
S: came out at Christmas time.
K: My favourites are, Elf and The Snowman. I really love The Holiday! I also like Home Alone and The Grinch as they are just classic Christmas films!

4. Whats your Christmas routine?

S: I wake up at 5 o clock! Maybe not that early...(at this point I gave Shannon a look as I know she does get up soooo early!) Open presents straight away, chill out for a bit, eat Christmas dinner and then visit all the family.
K: I get woken up by Shannon quite early...Once we all get up we then go downstairs and open the presents! We then chill out for a bit and look at all the stuff we got. We get ready and have Christmas dinner. In the afternoon we go to my dads and visit the rest of the family! At night, I'm usually at my dads and we just have a bit of a party which is really fun.

5. Favourite Christmas songs?

S: The Pogues.
K: Which ones that?
S: "And the bells are ringing out on Christmas dayyy..." I also like Last Christmas.
She then starts singing this song too and my dad joins in as well!
K: My favourite is probably Mariah Carey, All I want for Christmas is you! I also like the Michael Buble Christmas album as he is one of my favourites.

6.  Whats your favourite thing about Christmas time?

S: Seeing everyone!
K: You don't have to lie just because its going on my blog...
S: No! I do like it. And giving presents...
K: My favourite thing is buying and giving people presents. I just really like this part and love the feeling when they really love it! I also really love Christmas lights!

7. On Christmas day, do you stay in your pjs or dress up?

S: Dress up! Well, with a Christmas jumper...
K: We usually tend to get dressed up a little bit. But if we stayed in one place on Christmas Day, I would definitely stay in my onesie all day!

8. What would be your dream destination to visit during the Christmas season?

S: Erm...wherever the Northern Lights are! Dad where are they? Scandinavia!
K: Mine would 100% be New York!
S: Yeah, I've already been there...
Next question!

9. Are you good at wrapping Christmas presents?

S: Yes I am! I think I'm average but I'm not bad.
K: I'm brilliant at wrapping presents.
(Shannon starts laughing)
K: Ok, I'm not good at wrapping presents. But I do try!

10. Do you like it to snow around Christmas?

S: Yeah I do like snow!
K: Why?
S: It just seems cosy, its cold but...
K: I don't like snow, its way too cold and snow is really rubbish in the UK as it just turns to black horrible ice. I think if I was somewhere where it snowed properly then I might like it.

That's all the questions for this blog post! I really enjoyed answering these questions with my sister and there were times when we couldn't stop laughing for no reason at all! I hope you enjoyed reading this post and I will be back on Tuesday with another Christmas related beauty post!

This blog post is purely dedicated to my dog Lara. Unfortunately she passed away around six months ago and I've missed her more and more each day so I decided to make a blog post! Lara was a German Shepherd and she was honestly the best! She loved chasing shadows and always made me laugh with some of the things that she did. I used to take Lara on walks all the time across the fields behind my house and this is something that I miss the most. She loved running across the fields and she would always stop and turn around to make sure that I was still there...She was really well behaved and I couldn't of asked for a better dog! Lara was a member of our family and I know some people don't understand this, but once you get a dog or another pet, trust me you will! We got Lara when she was a puppy and had her for over 9 and a half years so its such a shock not having her around all the time. I tend to be home alone a lot so the one thing that I miss the most is having her company all the time. I wanted to share a few pictures with you as a memory of Lara who I miss so so much!

Lara definitely loved the camera! 

She also loved getting into the Christmas spirit too! Although she didn't have much of a choice (I'm sure she enjoyed it really!)

One of my favourite pictures! Looking cute as always!

Lara loved sleeping on the sofa or in some cases, on my bed! I do miss having her at the end of my bed, I never realised how much I would miss that as she always took up half of the bed!

This is a picture that I rediscovered on Facebook a few days ago. This is quite an old photo but its now one of my favourites that I will keep forever as I love it! 

I hope you enjoyed reading this post and although it was something quite different, it was a personal post to me and one that I am really happy with! No one really understands how much something will effect your life until it's gone. But she had a really good life and was well looked after. She was a well loved dog and will always be apart of the family!

Going to see The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2!

Picture taken from E Online

On Thursday night, I went to go see Mockingjay part 2 at the cinema! I honestly can't believe how amazing it was! Such a good conclusion to end all of the films. I wont spoil anything in this post as I know how annoying that can be! I experienced every emotion when watching this film and I enjoyed every second of it. Everyone has been waiting for this film for so long now and it definitely didn't disappoint! I think that the cast and everyone involved did such an amazing job with the final film. Jennifer Lawrence is one of my favourite actresses and I think she is so talented and did an amazing job with Katniss. I love how we have been able to see all of the characters grow and develop and I think that this film allows us to see the characters come together to fight one last time. Katniss has been such an inspiring character that so many people look up to and Mockingjay part 2 shows her character off perfectly. She doesn't disappoint in this film and definitely proves herself as the 'Mockingjay'.
I like to watch the films before reading the books with big films like these as I don't like to know what happens in films (as I much prefer them over books). It is safe to say that there were many surprises in this film that I didn't expect to happen! I think that this film includes so much, and I love all of the action! The film is such an amazing quality and I think that there's something for everyone. I was definitely sat on the edge of my seat throughout a lot of the film and I never wanted it to end! 
All four films have been amazing and I think that the final film may be my favourite. These films are so huge worldwide and its no surprise that everyone is loving the finale. I think they ended it perfectly in a way to say goodbye to the characters and the story line. The cast involved must be so proud of what they have achieved and I am so happy that I was introduced to these films from the very beginning! 

I saw Mockingjay Part 2 at Xscape Cineworld...

Pre Starbucks to calm the excitement!

I went to see the film with my stepmum, Sheridan. She loved it too!

Of course its on the front cover!!

The cinema was so busy once everyone came in!

Such an amazing film!!

The Perfect conclusion to such an amazing franchise...
