"A Messed Up Generation"

Monday, 29 December 2014

A lot of people complain about our generation taking lots of pictures when they're out with their friends, or at concerts, or out having fun, they say that you should 'put technology away and live in the moment', and don't get me wrong I do agree in a way, but what's wrong with keeping memories?

One day you won't remember living in those happy moments, and yes, you shouldn't spend hours on your phone in times like that, but spending a few minutes capturing the happiness you're experiencing can't be a bad thing. I vlog for a reason, I love looking back at old photos and videos, because 'living in the moment' isn't going to keep me alive when I'm sad and in need of happy moments, but those pictures will. When I'm in need of remembering all the good things I've experienced and all the amazing things I've done, when I can't remember them well enough in my brain, those will keep the memories alive, and they'll never fade.

I think a balance is important, why can't we do both? Live in the moment and capture it? Life goes quick and memories fade, and there's nothing better than being able to look back at everything you've done. It gives some people a sense of happiness, don't take that away from them.


A Simple Hello

Monday, 22 December 2014

I was browsing the wonderful website known as tumblr a few days ago and I came across this photo, I just had to post about it on here. So many people, myself including, get scared to say 'hello' to strangers incase they think we're strange, or we get judged, but just remember that 'A stranger is just a friend you haven't met yet'. It's true, everyone you know now were once strangers to you, and if you hadn't of talked to them then you wouldn't be sharing all the experiences and memories that you currently are.

A simple hello really could lead to a million things, there's countless opportunities that could happen just by you saying hello to someone. The worst they can do is just not want to associate themselves with you, right? Then that's their problem not yours, don't waste the chance of making maybe one of the best friends you could have just by being scared to say one simple hello, take the chance.


Would You Rather: Beauty Tag

Monday, 15 December 2014

1. Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks & lip glosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows?

See, I personally don't find this a hard question at all. I can't go out without heavy eye makeup, I love eyeshadow don't get me wrong, but I'd never wear it without mascara & eyeliner anyway, so I'd rather lose the latter.

2. Would you rather chop of all your hair or never be able to cut it again?

Definitely never be able to cut it again, I barely cut it anyway. I can't even tie my hair up without feeling uncomfortable, let alone chopping it all off!

3. Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?

I don't normally wear any colour on my cheeks, but I'm probably going to go with a coral cheek as I feel it's a lot lighter and prettier.

4. If you had £1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?

I absolutely love makeup, but I'm going to have to go with clothes here, purely because I'm running out of them desperately right now.

5. Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner or eyeliner as lipstick?

I feel like lipstick as eyeliner would be WAY too messy, so I think I'll go with eyeliner as lipstick. It could just be like using lipliner, right?

6. Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?

I've never actually brought anything from Sephora, but I've heard that it has such a huge range that I'd have to go with that one.

7. Would you rather only use one eyeshadow colour or one lip colour for the rest of your life?

Both would suck, so this is kinda difficult, but I'll go with one lip colour, purely because for the past few years I've only really worn the same one anyway. Yeah I've strayed away a lot but I've always gone back, so I feel like I'd be able to cope pretty easy.

8. Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round?

At college I used to be called a 'Goth Taylor Swift' and I think that sums up my answer to this, dark all the way! I don't really feel bright colours suit me, and I'm a huge fan of dark colours whatever the weather so.

9. Would you rather give up your favourite lip product or your favourite eye product?

This is so so hard, but I think I'd give up my favourite eye product as I could probably replace it a lot easier than my favourite lip one.

10. Would you rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lipgloss?

I hate lipglosses anyway, I hate how sticky they are and I only really like matte lips, so I'll go with the latter.

11. Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all, or sharpie them in everyday?

Oh gosh, this is so hard to answer, I think I'm going to have to pass! Is that even allowed? Oh well.

12. Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?

This is the easiest question ever. I love nail polish and making them look all nice and pretty and everything yeah, but I feel makeup is so much more important. You can do so much more with it, and I just couldn't live without it.


Pixie Lotts Album Launch

Sunday, 7 December 2014

So on 24th November I went to the lovely Pixie Lotts album launch in London, and it was absolutely great! Pixie was AMAZING, her performance was great, the album is definitely on my Christmas list (it's called 'Platinum Pixie' for those of you who may be curious) and the day and night overall just made me extremely happy. I also got to spend the day with my friend Kelly, who I hadn't seen in a while, and we had a little look around Winter Wonderland! Sadly I didn't get to go properly, but hopefully I will before the end of the year!

I also happened to meet the lovely Jade from Little Mix, it was a completely random surprise, I never expected to see her there, but it was great nevertheless! She was super super lovely and pretty, and the picture isn't the best but that doesn't matter too much. Although, I do strangely look like a Vampire. I swear I'm not that pale?!

Anyway, thank you so much for reading this, and following my blog and etc, it really does mean a lot to me, and I know I've been pretty terrible with posting lately, but it's hard to run a blog when you don't own a laptop of your own! I've planned a ton of posts though, so I'll be sure to throw them all your way soon, so I'll see you in a couple of days!
