Fireflies and Sellotape

It's been a while since I wrote a blog but this seems like something fun to talk about. I bet your reading the title thinking what the heck? Fireflies and Sellotape? Well they have something in common they can both glow in the dark.

I study higher chemistry at school (I have already studied standard grade and passed :D) and we were given the opportunity to attend a lecture being held in another high school called "Fireflies and sellotape". I thought this was a weird name. The lecture was all about fluorescent chemistry, chemiluminescence and bio luminescence. And the lecture begun but the scientist telling us what fireflies and sellotape had in common, they glow. Sit in a completely pitch black room for around five minutes for your eyes to adjust to the colour. Then pull a piece of sellotape from the reel and you will see blue sparks glowing from the sellotape. It's really cool. But how does it work. The electrons from the reel will be negative and the electrons from the piece of sellotape will be positive. (The same as a balloon being rubbed against hair to deflect a stream of water (water is polar)). Meaning the polarity will create light energy. You can also do this with the sticky bit on nappies. In addition, if you take a sugar cube or polos (on their side where you can't see the hole) and smash them with a hammer they will have the same effect.

It was definitely the best chemistry lecture I've attended. We did many random little experiments including adding mentos to tonic water and shining a UV lamp through it as the water rose towards the ceiling on the assembly hall.

Do you study chemistry or have you attended this lecture, what were your thoughts. It's almost Christmas so use up that left over sellotape and give this a try :)

June Favourites

Can you believe it's July already? I'm here to show you my favourite products in the month of june! This is something that a lot of people do on youtube so I decided to do it here for you guys today!

Face -

My favourite foundation of the month is the Max Factor Smooth Effect Foundation. I am in the shade Creamy Ivory 45.


 Eyes -

I am loving just a boring old neutral, and my fave pallet is actually my AVON 8-in-1 neutral tones pallet. I love the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 7th and 8th (from left) colours the best :)





My all time favourite eye liner is the Maybelline New York, Eyestudio lasting drama gel liner in black. It is amazing!


 My favourite mascara is Rimmel London: Volume Flash, The max bold curves. I wasn't sure about this to begin with because I love the Falsies mascara and wasn't sure about rimmel mascaras! But I only need one coat of this an it looks amazing :O. (and it's only £6.49 :))

Lips -

I'm in love with my Softlips French Vanilla lipbalm. I have really chapped lips and this has SPF 20 which is great for in the sun as your lips DO burn!


I am also loving The Natural Collection: Sheer natural lip colour in Autumn Sunset. This is a year round dark nude colour with warm pink undertones :)
                                                          


On trend right now is bright lips :) I am liking my bright, bubblegum pink lipstick from MUA. This is shade 4 :)
                                   


Nails -

I am loving My BarryM nail effects in Black. I love wearing either pink or white underneath. When this first came out I didn't really like it, but then I learned the best way to work with it and I love it. If you want a tutorial let me know :)
                       
You may notice the 3rd nail has a blue shine. I have loved putting a pearl coat on the ring finger. This is a really old bottle and it has no name or anything but it is by Miss Sporty.

Body(ish) - 

It's officially Summer so during June I've loved having sunkissed skin. I love the Dove Summer Glow gradual tanner. I have it in fair - medium :)

My all time favourite perfume maker is actually Coleen Rooney! She has AMAZING perfumes! I have them all. I think may just do a post on them all soon. I love the Summer (for summer, haha)

Others - 

Album - Owl City: All Things Bright And Beautiful (they are AMAZING)
Song - Peter Andre: Perfect Night (it is a really good song, OUT TODAY)
TV Show - Keeping Up With The Kardashians. It's only the second episode tonight and I already love it :L

Spin-Off's, yay or nay?

Hey there :) It's been a while! But I'm back!

Doe's anyone else just feel like out TV screens are just clogged up of spin-off's of other shows? I'm starting to feel like that I must admit! I'm a self confessed TV addict, I'm not going to lie! But honestly, there's 16&Pregnant and it's spin-off Teen Mom. There's Miami Ink and it's spin-off LA Ink. There's The Only Way Is Essex and it's spin-off Made In Chelsea (I have a debate on them below somewhere :)). There are so many spin-off's floating around and today another one got released!

MTV started a show in 2009 called Jersey Shore. This is definately a controversial reality show but it does shuck people in! This show has been run for 3 seires already, and there is set to be 2 more. But now in the UK there is Geordie Shore. I personally do love it however with 5 seires of the original do we need a UK version! I think it is a really funny show, and yes I'm obsessed, but do we need so many spin-off's? And today another UK spin-off of that American show has been named, Mersey Shore. As far as I'm aware Mersey is in Manchester, but I'm Scottish - don't take my word on it ahaa.

Do you like spin-off's? Do you like the shore programmes? Will you be tuning into Mersey Shore? Let me know below - I ♥ reading your comments! Also follow me on twitter for an instant connection http://www.twitter.com/DaniAxo.

Thanks Dani xo! :)

(A quick side note! I have just started 5th year and I didn't expect to be so rushed off my feet with school work, that is my reason for not sticking to my routine! In 2 weeks the Summer begins; it doesn't feel like it yet though :/! But as soon as that comes around I will be back to the routine! I would love for you's to subscribe and follow my twitter! Thanks, and sorry for being MIA. Love You Guys too bits!)

Max Factor Smooth Effects Foundation Review!

Hello again guys :)



So I have been trying out the Max Factor Smooth Effects Foundation (I'm in the shade 45-Creamy Ivory) and this is what I've been thinking of it :)

Good points :) -

  • It has a really nice application (I just used a disposible sponge)
  • It does what it say's and goes on extremely smoothly!
  • It cover my uneven skin tones
  • It is only £7.99
  • It doesn't look cakey on your skin, it looks soft and smooth (great for dry skin like myself)
  • The top is made so it doesn't get dirty and I ♥ that part!
However there are some bad points :( - 
  • It's staying power isn't great
  • Half way through my day I could feel it falling off
  • You need to set it with a powder to give more coverage 
  • It needs touched up quite a few times during the day! 
Although I have 4 bad points I actually really like this foundation! I love that it's only £7.99 and it looks great! I put some bronzer over it and it made it really stand out! Colours pop when you use this but it looks extremely natural :) 

I would absolutely recommend this to a friend :) For £7.99 (right now it is still on introductory offer of £5.99) you should check this out! And as always let me know what you think :)

Thanks, Dani xo :)

Bourjois Paris French Manicure Kit

So it's tuesday and today I'm going to review the "Bourjois Paris French Manicure" kit. The box states it's a salon-worthy french manicure for beginners.

Here is a video showing you how to use the product so you can make your own mind up about it!


video

The white is really easy to apply! It's a half moon shape so you only have to do one stroke, turn the brush and another stroke! The only thing is it doesn't fit the thumb so you have to use the edge to do the rest! The white is really clear and thick which makes for a great tip!

The next stage is the pink. You can by this without being in the kit! It is called "Rose Lounge". The pink is really shiny and gives your nails a chic colour! It compliments the white completely! The pink is really easy to apply.

As I told you in the video I always use the "Sally Hansen Mega Shine Extended Wear Top Coat" as it makes my nail polish stay put for 10 days. This top coat claims to stay put for 7 however I found it stayed 5! And when it chips it looks horrible! It makes you nail underneath look dry and feel horrible!

Overall I love the white and pink however I hate the top coat! I recommend the £9.99 kit for the french tip white and pink polish! I recommend buying a Sally Hansen top coat as they last forever and make your nail look shiny!

I would recommend this too all my friends [you guys (;] and think it is amazing! Gets my thumbs up :)

If you've tried it tell me what you think either below in the comments or @mention me on twitter! http://twitter.com/DaniAxo

Thanks, Dani xo

Essex Vs Chelsea?

Hello there.

So the big question is am I team Essex or team Chelsea! This is of course referencing to the Reality TVs shows "The Only Way Is Essex" (which I have a blog about if you look in the April folder) and "Made In Chelsea". Very similar shows from very different prospectives!

 I have loved Essex since day ONE! It caught my attention straight away, however some of the characters really annoy me. For example I can't stand that Lauren doesn't allow Mark his modelling agency! I do love the show and the catchphrases! Shut upppppp and reem! I love the comedy side of the show and how they aren't the smartest bunch on TV.

The first episode of  Chelsea however I wasn't the biggest fan, but I think it's because I was so in love the TOWIE! I watched episode 2 on Monday and LOVED it! I love the characters! (Caggie, Spencer and Hugo are my favourite).

I always thought that Amy Childs has been a sweetheart but reading her twitter comments and NEW! column I must I've seen a different side! Caggie Dunlop has been so so sweet and personally I think Amy Childs has been a bit of a jealous bitch about a new shoe starting!

Let me know you opinion, I think there is room on our boxes for BOTH shows but I want to know what you think!

Thanks, Dani :) xo

I'm sorry that it's been a while since I last did a post but exams are STRESSFULL! 5 down 3 to go! I've been doing exams and revising non stop. They are going well so far. Think I've done the best I can :). Thanks to those who have asked on twitter. Results come on the 4th of August! That will be a sleepless night, haha!

My First Official Exam... of 2011

So up here in Scotland the Scottish Qualification Authority (SQA) exams started yesterday, and for me my first exam was today... Maths!

In Scotland you do Standard Grades in 3rd and 4th year! These are categorised into Foundation, Int1, General, Int2 and Credit levels. However mainly just Foundation (Award 6 or 5), General (Award 4 or 3) and Credit (Award 2 or 1)... i.e 6 is the worst, 1 is the best!

In my prelims I got straight 2! Which I was happy about, one award mark away from a 1! So today I sat my maths... and some of it went well, some of it went miserably!

I started off at 10:40 with the general paper (non-calculator) this paper was soo easy, it was a walk in the park, or for me anyway! I then did the general paper (calculator) paper which once again was incredibly easy! The problems came in the Credit level!

In my school there is only one credit class, mine! It's the hardest level at Standard Grade. There is 2 sides to a standard grade paper, Knowledge&Understanding and Reasoning&Enquiry! I was revising soo much for the paper I found the KU really easy! I knew all my formulas, how to use them ect. However the Reasoning&Enquiry was so hard!

There was a question in the Calculator paper that nobody could do! It was Question 8 and a RE question. Nobody in my school could do it, which frustrated us all, haha.

Overall, I think today was a success! Think I did OK! But I won't know until August 4th!

Are any of you guys doing your exams at the moment? I would love to hear how they are going!

Thanks, Dani xo

osama bin laden: my opinion

Let's get this clear before I start rambling off my opinion... I would NEVER wish death on ANYONE.

So on Twitter today everyone is speaking and arguing with each other over wether we should be happy or sad about his murder. Personally I can't really judge as I'm Scottish not American and their views are a lot stronger as he targeted their country. I think that he was happy he killed someone so why shouldn't we be happy he's dead? But also we slated his actions for so long should we really follow them? Would god really bless a hypocritical country who's goes against their believes, as many Americas follow Christ.

I'm not religious and don't live in America, someone commited a crime of murder and someone died. Someone is being called a hero and a murderer is dead. Think about that. Aren't the majority of views hypocritical?

I would once again never wish death on anyone and would never judge someone for their opinion but I will not sit and listen to someone expressing hypocritical views.

Leave a comment on what YOU think.

Twitter: SPARK YOUTH FOUNDATION

"Spark Youth Foundation set up to help young people. Whether it be eating disorders, self harm or just need somebody to talk to, we are a nonjudgemental service." - The bio from the twitter.


Spark youth foundation is an amazing idea. A young girl who's been through it all wants to help others in a situation she once was in. Spark Youth Foundation give teenagers a place to go to, to talk about their feelings. They have a twitter, facebook and a skype where you can always go to talk. It is truly inspirational. 


At the present moment you have a chance to be apart of the Campaign video being complied together. A lot of their followers are trying to help get as many followers as possible. One person she absolutely loves and would love the support of is Niall Horan of One Direction. Please help her along on this. 


If you have just a few minutes of your time please check out http://www.twitter.com/SparkSYF   I have followed since the first day the twitter was created and definitely don't regret it.


Lots of Love, Thanks, Dani xo

Happy Easter, Little Update & QOTD all in one little bundle :)

A quick message to say I hope you guys have had an amazing Easter (if you celebrate). It's been chocolate galore today, I received two Malterser eggs, a milky bar cow and a rabbit shaped chocolate treat :). I have digged into any yet. Going to wait for new episodes of "The Only Way Is Essex" and the season premiere of "Khloe and Lamar" which is TONIGHT!!! I really do love reality TV incase you haven't noticed.

Have to make it aware that I would be the best blogger in the next few weeks. Study leave starts this Friday, can't believe I'm doing my exams already! My first exam is the 4th of May for Maths! I have a lot of study days off coming up, but I think I'm going to be to stressed out to enjoy them! I also have my English exam on the day of my brothers fiancĂ©es 21st birthday! Happy Birthday Vicky for the 6th!

Found out recently my uncle (who lives in England) is coming up the week I get my results! I hope I do really well so I have good news to share! Hmm... what else has been happening in the wonderful world of Danielle Allan? I went to see scre4m with Abbie and Lee. Lewis couldn't make it in the end unfortunetly! Abbie was really scared by it and I couldn't resist texting her the catchprase from the movie "what's your favourite scary movie?" I didn't realise how freaked out she was until I learned she didn't stay in that night, she went in the car with her mum. Needless to say I felt really bad so sorry Abbie :). (Catch her on twitter at http://twitter.com/_AbbieStyles.)

Does anyone remember the incredibly cheesy TV show from years ago called "Britannia High"? I was remembering it the other day and decided I wanted to see it again! I ended up purchasing the box set for £3.44 from AMAZON! I was pretty impressed, and I forgot how good it was!

Feathers, Spring Trends 2011

So I hear the new spring trend is feathers. Everybody is wearing them (especially on American Idol lol) from Steven Tyler to Vanessa Hudgens to Lauren Alaina and now ME! Some people are wearing earrings and some are wearing them in their hair. They come in all shape, sizes and colours. Some can make an outfit stand out and some blend into the silky, sleek, chic trend of Spring 2011.

Angelina Jolie 

Miley Cyrus

Vanessa Hudgens


Steven Tylers

I was in town today and popped in by dorothy perkins. I saw the reduced isle had some feather earrings. They were the same colour as my outfit and I fell in love. They are a beige/pink colour  and were reduced from £8.50 to ££4.25 to £3! I had to have them! I decided to "model" them for you below :)
