Tag | Disney.

1. A scene in any Disney movie you wish you could experience.  
Hmm, there are so many! Probably the lantern scene in Tangled, I think that it's so beautiful. I would say the magic carpet ride in Aladdin if I wasn't scared of heights.

2. An unforgettable experience moment you've had at the Parks.  
When I was 9 I was at Disney World and I was picked to be in the parade, but I didn't actually realise until afterwards. I was a very shy child and I doubt I would have wanted to anyway.
Going on Space Mountain for the first time and none of my family realising it was a rollercoaster, that was hilarious. I also loved being there after dark and going on Tower of Terror and watching the show and fireworks.

3. What Non-Disney song(s) that reminds you or brings back memories of Disney and or the Parks? 
I can't actually think of anything at the moment...
4. When was the first time you went to a Disney Park?
November 13th 1998, I had just turned 9.

5. If you could choose any of the characters to be your best friend, who would you choose?
Hmm, I always enjoy characters like Archimedes, Pascal and Maximus, so I'd probably have an animal sidekick!

6. Who are your favourite Disney Princesses? 
Aurora, I've always loved her hair and clothes. A dress that changes colours would be amazing! I also like Ariel even though I've only seen The Little Mermaid a couple of times.

7. Name a scene/moment in a Disney movie that never fails to make you cry.
I don't think I cry at Disney all that much. The lantern scene in Enchanted the first time I saw it, but that's pretty much it.

8. What was the first Disney movie you remember seeing?
The Jungle Book or Cinderella I think.

9. What is your favourite Disney movie? 
Sleeping Beauty and The Sword in the Stone.

10. Share a video or photo that shows your love for Disney  

That's the only one I could really find, I took that photo back in 2009.

I tag everyone who loves Disney to do this tag! I'll hopfully have more time to get back into regular posting soon. Work is just hectic and I'm so exhausted. I hope everyone is well and whatnot! :)

It's Glow Time! Get Bronzed by 17 | Quick Review + Swatches

Something a little different today, this is a 'Get The Look' set from 17 that I won in a tombola. Strange I know, lucky too as it was the reason I wanted to play it in the first place! So happy I won it.

What does this set contain I hear you ask?! Well it contains 3 items, a lipgloss in the shade In The Nude, an eyeshadow in Statuesque and a cream bronzer/blusher. The reason I wanted this so badly is that it was coming into summer and I wanted to get a bit of a healthy glow going. That being said, I am very pale so it has to be subtle. I don't intend to get any colour over the summer, but a bit of a glow would be nice!

Photo Post | Random Selection.

These photos don't tie together in any kind of way, I just wanted to do another photo post and use Photoshop some more. Still getting the hang of it after around a year of not using it!

Some of these are from Newcastle, others are from Canada, and the US as well as one from Scotland. Can you guess which one?

FOTD | Simple.

Time for a wee FOTD post, not done one of these in quite some time. This was from a few weeks ago, you may notice that I used the first photo as my new blog icon.

Wishlist + Discount Code | Motel Rocks.

Today I decided I wanted to write about fashion instead of beauty. It's not often that happens, but believe it or not I've always been more into clothes than make-up. It's only recently I've taken such an interest in beauty and the like.

So I'm going to share one of my favourite clothing brands with you - Motel Rocks. Most of you are probably very familiar with this company, they have been around for years and they have some ahh-mazing pieces! My first Motel purchase was back in around 2006 - 7 years ago, can you believe it!? All of my dresses are still in great condition and are also still wearable today. That's one of the things I love most about their clothes, as well as their comfort.

Sometimes I find them a little on the expensive side, and I rarely buy anything full price, but it's easy to find a bargain on their website. They always have a sale on and plenty discount codes floating about! Speaking of discount codes if you use my code jeneralrambling you can get 20% off, any time.

They have something for almost everyone, at the moment there are lots of 90s inspired pieces as well as pretty, feminine prints for summer. I love to mix up my style so it's perfect for me. Geez, you'd think this was a sponsored post with all the gushing I'm doing but seriously I love Motel Rocks, a lot. A LOT. I have around 8 dresses, 4 pairs of trousers and a couple of tops. Probably not as much as some people but I spend a lot of time deciding and deliberating about which things to buy!

A couple of downsides I've discovered is that they don't cater for sizes above 14 (which I am in trousers, so if I size up I won't be able to fit them!) and if you're tall then their mini skirts/dresses are waaay too short (which I also have to watch out for). Lastly if you have a long torso their playsuits are too short (embarrassing cameltoe much?!) Sucks.

Have you ever bought anything from Motel Rocks? If so what, or what do you have your eyes on? Anyone have trouble with their sizing, or something else? Let me know!

ELF Contouring Blusher + Bronzer Duo in St. Lucia | Review + Swatches.

Over a month ago I picked up some more bargains from ELFs online store, they were having up to 50% off and I think the delivery may have been free also. They're always having amazing sales!
I picked up a few things, one of these was the St. Lucia blusher and bronzer duo (£3.75), I'd read that it's a dupe for the NARS Laguna and Orgasm duo. This wasn't the reason I went for it though, I just think the colours are pretty. I'm easily pleased. If you were looking for this to be a dupe then you'd be out of luck. This bronzer isn't matte and the blusher is too light and too pink when blended.

The packaging however is reminiscent of the NARS packaging, slightly rounded and rubberised casing (not quite as rubbery though, so doesn't get so mucky). It's quite large, but not so large you wouldn't be able to carry it around and you can't really complain though as it's housing two products!
I'm not sure but I had a look on the website again and I can only find this duo in the cream version now.
