My Instaweek #18: Eyeliners and a Haircut

Hi cute geeks!

I didn’t realise it had been so long since I shared ‘My Instaweek‘ with you all! Eek!

my instaweek

What have I been doing?
Well, decluttering is taking me FOREVER! What started as a Spring Clean is turning into a Summer Sortout.

I’m going to share some posts with you soon about how I decluttered my makeup and a little DIY chair project I’ve been working on, so stay tuned for that.

I’ve also been ‘trying’ to catch up with 100 Days of Being Geek Chic and Healthy, but failing miserably.

I try to follow the #fmsphotoaday prompts, but for this week I did a Tris and diverted.

Anyhoo, here’s my cute geeky week in photos:

Decluttering Makeup

How many eyeliners does one person need? This isn’t even all of my makeup!
Decluttering Makeup


I hadn’t had my hair cut since August last year! Yikes. I had 4 inches cut off and resisted getting any highlights, still rocking the natural blonde look with last years ombre ends. I’m lemon juicing the hell out of it when we go on our mini break haha.
Long Hair Don't Care


Watching Younger Sutton Foster (Bunheads) plays Liza a 40 year old passing herself off as 26 to get a job in the publishing world. The character is so out of touch with everything it’s hilarious like when she is told to set up a twitter account for work. It’s kind of like a back to front ‘Jane by Design’.

Blast from the Past I really enjoyed this film, Brendan Fraser plays a guy who has lived his entire life in a bunker, when he is 35 he discovers the real world.

Favourite Quotes

Hi cute geeks!

What’s new? Today I’m posting my favourite quotes, some of them are from my Dad. :)

Favourite Quotes

But first a little about what I’ve been doing today:

Well, my BF was off today so we went for waffles and a nice walk by the beach. It’s starting to get really warm here now and I think the heat wiped us out so our afternoon has been a Mario Kart 8 karting competition online.

(More about Mario Kart 8 and the adorable Animal Crossing DLC in a separate post.)

Quotes can inspire, comfort and amuse. I read a lot of them to motivate myself to workout or sometimes cheer myself up.

My Dad is hilarious and the main source for my favourite quotes, so I think it’s only right to share them here alongside some of the more classic ones:

I’m just gunna go and stick my head down the toilet!

This is often used when my Dad is fighting a losing battle, such as when my Mum and I bully him into something or he’s forgotten to do something important and my Mum reminds him.
It makes me laugh every time he says it. :)
Favourite Quotes

Slow but steady wins the race

This is from Aesop’s Fables that I did mention in a previous post. I loved the Tortoise and the Hare story, I really believe this way of thinking works as long as you are making progress and time allows, go at your own pace.
Favourite Quotes

It can’t be Friday night every night!

Ah this is a classic from my Dad especially in my late teens and 20’s when I enjoyed going to clubs.
Favourite Quotes

We’re all mad here!

Alice in Wonderland is such a quotable book/film that it’s hard to choose favourites. I do love the Cheshire Cat’s sassyness.

Liebster Award

Hi cute geeks!

Guess what, I was nominated for the Liebster Award! How exciting, I feel like I should have prepared a speech or something. I’d like to thank Ari from Comics and Cookies for the nomination, you’re awesome.

Liebster Award

There are a few rules to the Liebster Award, I’m sure a lot of the bloggers I nominate will already have done this but nevermind.

Liebster Award Rules:

  • Link back to the person that nominated you
  • Answer the questions given by the nominator
  • Nominate 11 other bloggers with less than 200 followers
  • Create 11 questions for the nominees
  • Notify all nominees via social media/blogs

Ari’s questions look like fun, let’s get started!

  • 1.) What’s your favourite film?
  • Eek! You can’t ask me that! I have so many favourite films depending on my mood. Can I just say Jim Carrey?

  • 2.) If you could go into any video game ‘world’ what would it be and why?
  • Good one! I’m going to say Animal Crossing. Their little world is so friendly and you can make a lot of cash catching sharks and Cyclommatus Stags! Who wouldn’t want a fluffy dear called Deidre as a neighbour?

  • 3.) If money was no object, what’s the first thing you would buy?
  • As I’m currently on a decluttering spree and taking a more minimalistic approach to life, I would probably buy an experience as opposed to things. I would pay for me and my BF to go to Iceland and explore the Golden Circle, Blue Lagoon and see the Aurora Borealis.

  • 4.) Baths or showers?
  • I haven’t had a bath in years! It usually gets a few chuckles from people but the fact is we don’t have a bath. Living in a hot climate, the last thing I want to do is jump into a cauldron at the end of the day. Haha. The only time I would take a bath is if I’m travelling, like this time we went to Disneyland Paris.

  • 5.) What’s your favourite take-away?
  • Chinese takeaway is my fave, on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

  • 6.) Tea or coffee?
  • I gave up coffee a couple of years ago, so tea all the way! I really like green tea

  • 7.) If you could see any band or musician, alive or dead, who would it be and why?
  • I’m not really into many bands per se, I really like Reggaeton music and been lucky enough to see Don Omar and Pitbull in concert. I’m going to say Elvis because who wouldn’t want to see Elvis in his prime, strutting his stuff?

  • 8.) What’s your all-time favourite book?
  • I don’t tend to re-read books but I’m rediscovering Aesop’s Fables which I wouldn’t put down as a kid.

  • 9.) Would you ever go sky-diving?
  • My younger self would probably say yes, but no, I’m a scaredy cat.

  • 10.) What would be your dream holiday?
  • See answer number 2! Iceland all the way.

  • 11.) Have you met anyone famous?
  • I’ve met quite a few famous people, but the ones that left me starstruck are *ahem* the local Mayor haha (my BF takes pleasure in teasing me about this but I was so happy to meet him, even though there were 4 Premier League football players at the same event)

    Back when I was studying Performing Arts at college I did some extra work, Samuel L Jackson, Robert Carlyle and Meat Loaf all in one film? Can you guess? It was The 51st State (I think it has 2 names according to IMDB it’s also Formula 51). I was in the nightclub scene, which was filmed in an old warehouse in Liverpool.

    Robert Carlyle had to push past me in the nightclub scene at one point in the 13 hours of filming and he even has a Scouse accent in this film. I didn’t really watch any of his stuff back then but now I’m obsessed with his character of Mr Gold and Rumplestiltskin on Once Upon a Time!
