Lusher Easter Range

Thursday, 26 March 2015

Like every blogger on the planet I'm a huge Lush fan, so when someone emailed me asking if I wanted to try any of their Easter products I was in complete shock and was lucky enough to receive these two beauties. If you want to view the full range you can find it over on their website HERE.

Letting Music Inspire You

Monday, 23 March 2015

I've mentioned so many times on this blog that I find it extremely difficult to get into the right mindset, yet weirdly enough it's very easy to get out of it and into the wrong one. The good thing about music is how it can be such a mood changer and recently I've been into using it to motivate and inspire myself with everything.

Tanya Burr 'Vampire Kiss' Lipgloss Review

Friday, 20 March 2015

Being a huge fan of Tanyas videos I obviously had to have a little try at her makeup range, yes I'm very late on this boat but better late than never right? I decided to try one of her lip glosses as I own way too many nail varnishes as it is, and I picked up the colour 'Vampire Kiss'. The package makes it look like a lovely pinkish red colour, and I'm all for more noticeable lip colours! This review was highly requested on twitter, and I've been practising writing them lately since I'm new to the whole thing. 

Are You Really A Writer?

Wednesday, 18 March 2015

While I'm currently writing this it's 2:40am, I can't sleep and I have a snoring dog at the end of my bed. Three cheers for Insomnia huh? I don't currently know what the point in this post is, I'm just sipping my tea listening to a very relaxing Spotify playlist and I just felt like writing. If there's anything I've learnt in my time as a writer it's to NEVER turn down a moment when you feel both motivated and inspired to write, mind block comes back way too quickly.

Friendship Notes

Sunday, 15 March 2015

In one of my earlier posts Seaside Adventures I told you guys that I stayed with my friend Jess for a few days the other week, and during that stay she gave me an envelope that she was meant to give me a long time ago titled "Open When You Are Lonely". I had a little look and gosh did I have a good cry when I got home, it's genuinely one of the sweetest things I have ever received.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Review

Friday, 13 March 2015

I've not been posting that much on beauty on here recently as I've been swaying towards lifestyle, however I'm bringing beauty back (totally didn't sing that in a Justin Timberlake voice) to even up the field a bit more!

Things I'd Tell My Younger Self

Tuesday, 10 March 2015

A lot of people have been making videos based around this topic on Youtube as part of its 'Dear Me' Campaign, but I personally wanted to write a blog post on it instead as even though I do have a channel some things I find easier to express in writing form rather than video form. So here are 6 things I wish I'd know when I was younger.

1. Take everything a day at a time.

As a teenager I spent WAY too much time worrying about my future. Worrying about what was happening tomorrow, next week, when I was 30, and it meant I missed out on a lot and it also stopped my happiness. Instead of living in the moment and thinking about the now, I let my teachers and family pressure me into thinking way ahead into the future, and that wasn't what I needed at all.

2. Actually focus on your education
I wish I knew this even a year and a bit ago, rather than finding out not that long ago. I've messed up a lot of what I want to do by not focusing hard enough on my education and boy do I regret it. Even though a lot of people now say that education doesn't matter as much, trust me it does. It really really does.

Mum In A Million

Thursday, 5 March 2015

She's been there since the beginning. She's raised you, been there through the thick and the thin and supported you no matter what. The bond between a Mother and her Child is one of the strongest things and I know that I personally wouldn't exchange mine for anything. Yeah you may have your ups and downs, gosh do me and my Mum have those a lot, but at the end of the day she's family. She's your Mum, and she would do anything for you.
