FIVE HAPPY THINGS



November has been of a blur for this blog, and therefore there has been a serious lack of posts. Soz about that, but university work had to take priority. However, I wanted to bring back some positivity to your grey Sunday, with a 'Five Happy Things' post!

1. The thought of seeing Justin Bieber again in 8 days time 
If you have been reading 'Bambi Dreaming' for while now, or follow me on Twitter or Instagram, then you will probably know I love Justin Bieber and I can't wait to see him for the 6th time next Monday!!!

2. Discovering 'Urban Fruit' 
On a spontaneous trip to Asda this morning, I found 'Urban Fruit' and oh my I have just finished a whole pack before I even got to my second 'happy thing'. I picked up the strawberry one, and basically they are baked strawberries and oh my are they good.

3. Reading 
It feels so long since I last picked up a book that wasn't related to my university degree and got lost in some other world. Well, this afternoon I am going to pick up a book (probably Harry Potter, because who doesn't want to be transported to a magical world) and actually enjoy reading.

4. Sunday Roast Dinner 
The great thing about living at home is my Mum's Sunday Roast Dinners. Today it is roast chicken and I'm so excited to delve into it later.

5. It's 5 weeks until Christmas!!
Yes, that is correct. This time in five weeks time it will be Christmas day!! Personally, I can't wait for the food; Roast turkey and all the trimmings.

If there has been one thing that I have learnt from writing this post, is that I really do love food!!!

What are your '5 Happy Things?'

STEPPING OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE




We all have this protective bubble that we all try and stay within, but somethings you have just got to break that bubble and go out there and do something new. 

During my first year of university I kinda stayed within that protective comfort zone bubble, except for trying out Dance and Pole Dancing, I did sod all. To be quite honest, I regret not joining a sports club and societies last year, because it would have made first year so much better. However, this year I have already stepped well out of my comfort zone and joined a sports club. Yes I have finally joined something at university and sticking with it!!!!!! 

Now you are probably all thinking, 'well what then?' I joined Lacrosse. To be honest before I played it I had no idea what it was about. All I knew is you had some kinda stick with a net on the end of it and you played with a ball. I still don't really know the rules, or really how to play, except for shouting in the opposite teams face 'ON BALL' and it scares the hell out of them. 

In all honesty, Lacrosse is fun. 

I have been able to play in my first competitive sports game since I was about 12 (good old High School Netball days) and made new friends, and actually started exercising. Although I have come to the conclusion I am the unfit one, who fails to do a lap around half a pitch, but I am getting there and I am enjoying it. 

Sometimes you just have to fight your fears and go and try something new. You may not want to, but the rewards will outweigh it all. 


Have you done something out of your comfort zone lately?

GOLD OBESSION






There is something quite addictive about buying new lipsticks and adding more to the ever growing collection. So when I found the L'Oreal Gold Obsession lipsticks in my local Superdrug I knew I had to pick three up, well I could have brought all 5 which were in stock but 3 for 2 and all. 

Now, at first I was a bit frightened of having a gold lip, but since trying it I am totally okay with the idea and the look. It is probably something I wouldn't go to everyday, and it kinda a trend that will die out soon, but for now I plan to rock that gold lip. 

The great thing about these lippies are they don't shout out 'I'm wearing Gold lipstick', it is almost quite natural, especially the nude gold, which is the perfect go to.  I also picked up Plum Gold, which I am not the biggest fan of wearing it by itself. Personally, I like to wear it over the top of Charlotte Tilbury Bond Girl, as they are quite similar in shade, but the gold really pops. Perfect for Autumn then. 

The final of the three lipsticks I picked up was the Pure Gold, which yes I have worn by it's self and it kinda just looks like a clear lipgloss which a bit of sparkle. I have however, also worn it over MAC Mehr and Velvet Teddy, and it looked so pretty.

PURPOSE TOUR

Okay I have been a totally shit blogger the last month. I am blaming in on university, but the reality is I have just been lazy and couldn't be bothered. However, now I have my arse in gear again, heres a new blog post.

Now if you know me, you will know that I love Justin Bieber, and have done since 2009. Yes I am one of the original beliebers who has been to My World World Tour, This Is Justin Bieber (ITV), Believe Tour and now Purpose Tour. I was obsessed. I admit it. Now however, I still love him. I love his music, I love supporting him and I love seeing him live, but I am not that obsessed 13 year old I once was. Yes I went to the My World Tour dressed in Purple with my  Never Say Never purple 3D glasses and 'I heart Justin Bieber' hoodie, but times have changed and I am now 19, but man I felt like my 13 year old self on the 11th October. 

To be honest I never thought I would be so close on the Purpose Tour. When I got my tickets 'B3, Row K', I just thought 'Year middle of 02, should be able to see if not I will look on the screen'. Hell no. I was the start of block 2 and three rows from the stage. 

I was a mess. I frecked out when I got to my seats. 

I just thought 'finally after 7 years I am this close to seeing him in concert'. 

Okay I was in the second row for 'This Is Justin Bieber' in 2011, but there was only 500 people and it was for TV, not his own concert. 

Anyway, lets get on to the photos....

THE LEOPARD PRINT SKIRT



I think I may have just found the perfect statement skirt and yes it is leopard print, or if you want to be fancy like Topshop an 'Ombre Animal A-Line Skirt'. Fancy but so pretty. 

If you know me, that I like to keep things basic. I'm a jeans a tee girl, although I do have a little obsession with skirts (the draw actually doesn't shut. but who is telling), but don't own anything WOW statement in my wardrobe. 

Then that all changed. 

I was browsing Topshop online, like you do, and then the basket was increasing and this statement skirt found it way in there and soon into my wardrobe, (the jumper and the shows as well) well let's just say thank you to my staff discount card. You my friend are a live saver. Literally. 

This little outfit was kinda never supposed to happen. I normally dress kinda boring for work, but when you manger messages the staff whatsapp 'THE AREA MANAGER IS IN, WHERE THE LATEST TRENDS', this kinda happened, and I'm kinda loving it. 

Skirt: Topshop 
Jumper: Topshop 
Shoes: Topshop 

Do you have a statement item in your wardrobe?
