Quick Update...

This is a very short blog post explaining a few changes which I am going to make. I usually post every Tuesday and every Saturday, but I have now decided to post at any point in the week as it will work a lot better for me. I will still be posting as much as I can and I have lots of posts planned for the next few weeks. Restricting myself to two specific days can sometimes be quite difficult as some days can be busier than others. I am really enjoying running this blog and I love interacting with all the other bloggers out there! I am hoping to get a new makeover for my blog in the next few months so that's going to be something exciting for look out for!

I hope you all don't mind this little change to my blog! I will see you in my next post...

I went to see Ellie Goulding!

I am so happy to be finally writing this post as I have been waiting for this moment for so long! This may not be exciting news to you, but it definitely is to me...I went to see Ellie Goulding! I have loved her music for as long as I can remember and have wanted to see her for so many years. Once she announced her tour for this year, I knew that I had to get tickets. I got them the day they came out and was lucky enough to get standing tickets too. I really love all of her songs and her new album Delirium in particular is amazing!

We went to see her on Tuesday night in Leeds at the first direct arena. I went with my mum and she really enjoyed it too. The support acts for the show were a band called Lany which were a smaller band from LA, and John Newman, who was really good! I had listened to a lot of his songs in the charts before but have never really thought about his music that much. But...he was amazing live and created a really great opening for the show. I actually managed to get a good spot on the floor which was right on the barrier. There was a section of the stage that came out into the audience and me and my mum were on the end of that. So still close to the front of the stage but also very close the platform off the stage too!

Seeing Allegiant!

On Thursday night, I went to see Allegiant and I have been waiting so long for this film! The Divergent series is one of my absolute favourite so I was very excited!

I went to Cineworld at Xscape to see the film. I went with my dad and stepmum as I have gotten them into all the big films as well! We went to McDonald's before and I haven't had one in so long. We could of probably gone somewhere nicer but everyone loves a McDonald's and you know that's true...

I can honestly say that I loved the film so so much! The film was shorter than I expected but the storyline was amazing. I love the characters and they all did an amazing job with this film. Shailene Woodley and Theo James are two of my favourites and I love seeing them as Four and Tris. I don't want to spoil anything for anyone so I won't mention anything that happened.

This is a film that I know I will be buying as soon as it comes out and I will be watching it a lot in the future. I am going to see this film again at the cinema with my mum and I can't wait! If you haven't seen it yet, please do, as it's amazing! Or...If you haven't even seen any of the Divergent films, I would 100% recommend them as they are incredible and some of the best I've seen!

Overall, I had a really lovely night and feel so relieved after finally watching Allegiant as I have been waiting for it since last year. But I do now have to wait another year for the final film...I am going to be so sad when all of the big series films are over! But there is always something on at the cinema that I am keen to watch.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post and I will be back on Tuesday with another beauty post...

Lifestyle: February Favourites

I can't believe its time for me to do my monthly favourites again! This year seems to be going by so so quickly! Although, I'm happy for it to speed up to June so I can go on holiday! In today's post, I am going to be talking about my favourites of this month that are lifestyle related. But, if you come back on Tuesday, there will be a post for you talking about all of my beauty favourites. I have quite a few things to talk about today, so read on if you want to find out more...

The first thing that I am going to show you are TV programmes! The first one is by far my new obsession, and that is The Vampire Diaries. I started this programme in January and I am now going onto season 6. I think it's one of the most amazing shows I have ever watched and I love all of the characters involved. The cast are truly amazing and the story lines are always so gripping. The shows always leave you on a cliff hanger, which is why I think I have gone through so so many. I watch this series on Netflix, and I know that season 7 has just been released in the US, how exciting! If you haven't see this before, please so, you will thank me later...

The next programme is The 100! The 100 has now returned for season 3, and I'm sure you all probably know this as I don't stop talking about it! I won't go into too much detail, but let me just tell you that you won't regret watching it! Its such an amazing show that people need to watch! I cannot tell you how happy I am that season 3 is back, and although its only been on for a few weeks, its going above and beyond my expectations, as always!

The next category for today's favourites are films! If you read my blog, you know it will either be a new released film, one that I have been late for watching or an old favourite of mine. Today is one that I bought a while ago, but haven't got round to watching. Love, Rosie is a film that includes two of my favourite actors that I finally watched the other week. I really enjoyed this film and has been one that I loved this month. Its a great film for a cosy night in, and one that I know I will constantly reach for in the future.

Music is one that I will always talk about, as I am a big fan of so many artists! This month, I have particularly been loving Demi Lovato's new album, Confident and Imagine Dragons as a whole! Demi Lovato is always someone that I have loved from the beginning and I have really enjoyed listening to her album in the car this month! Imagine Dragons is a band that I have listened to a lot more this year, and I love them! This month I have been listening to them A LOT, On top of the world and Warriors in particular.

This month, I decided to include my current inspiration. I have never done this before but I thought that this would be an interesting one that people might like to read. This month's inspiration for me has 100% been Anna Saccone. Anna is a well known YouTuber who is part of the brilliant vlogging family, The SacconeJoly's. But Anna has her own channel, which I always follow as I love her videos. She has been a big inspiration to me for everything this month. I look to her for fitness, food, fashion, beauty, personality, life advice and confidence! Through the power of social media, I am able to keep up to date on her life and watch her videos everyday. If I can be like Anna in the future, I will be extremely happy! Please go check out her channel, blog and social media pages as she truly is an amazing women!

The final thing that I have been loving this month is Pinterest! I have been using it a lot recently and adding lots of new pins to my boards. I have also started following a lot more people this month, so I have gotten so much inspiration. I have really been loving finding lots of fashion inspiration for my holiday on Pinterest, there is so much to look at! I have also been loving finding inspiration for my mums wedding next year. You have no idea how useful this app has been for so many ideas. My username is @KellieNee97 if you want to follow me!

I hope you enjoyed reading today's post! I will back on Tuesday showing you my beauty favourites!

Too Faced Chocolate Bar...

This is a blog post that I have been meaning to do for weeks now! As you may have seen on my blog, I recently have purchased the Too Faced Chocolate Bar. It is truly as wonderful as it sounds! I was so happy with this product and I know I will continue to use it for a very long time. Too faced has always been one of my favourite brands and I have been meaning to try out this palette for sooo long! I received my delivery from Debenhams one morning and was so excited to open it. The packaging is so beautiful and it smells like chocolate, who couldn't love that? The shades inside are stunning. Every colour I would ever need is in this palette and I couldn't decide which one I liked the most...

After using the palette for the first time, I couldn't believe how pigmented the shades were. The shimmer ones are a lot more pigmented, but they are all really great quality. I have been using this product none stop for the past few weeks and I love it so so much! My favourite shades at the minute are Marzipan and Salted Caramel. But this could change every week, as I am always trying out new shades and playing around with them to see what works well together. 

You can create some amazing looks with this palette, whether this is a simple everyday look or one for a night out! There is a really great selection to choose from and the colours are perfect for me. I am really happy that I finally purchased this product as its my new favourite! I will try out different eye-shadow palettes in the future but it's going to be very difficult to beat this one. If you have any recommendations of any palettes, please let me know!

I want to try out so many Too Faced products and I have a very big wish list! There brand is so amazing and the packaging is one of my favourite for makeup products. I will be sure to let you know if I buy any more in the future. 

I bought my palette from Debenhams and I will leave a link below for you! This palette cost me £39 but I think its definitely worth it as I know its amazing quality and will last me a really long time. I hope you enjoyed reading today's beauty post and I will be back here on Saturday!
