Thought of the day.

This quote gives me goosebumps. Honestly, it’s one of those quotes that makes me smile and scared whenever I see it.

It makes me smile because I believe this is an aspect of myself that I like. I count myself as an honest person. I’m not talking about that brash honesty that makes you cringe because it’s falling out of a loud mouth who doesn’t care about anyone else’s feelings.

I’m talking about being honest when it matters. Whether that’s being honest with a friend about why they upset you, or being honest when you’ve done something wrong. These things can be quite scary for a number of reasons. One being that you don’t want another person to think badly of you, or feel badly about something they’ve done.

But sometimes it is necessary.

So, I just wanted to share that with you guys because I think it is really important to always speak your truth. Even when your voice shakes.

SUNDAY SHOUTOUT: Foundations and Fairytales

This week I my Sunday Shoutout post is dedicated to Foundations and Fairytales by Jess.

She is 22 and a lover of makeup, books and Disney, which is a pretty awesome combination that you don’t see too often!

Jess’s blog stole my heart because the way she writes is so open and honest. She is 100% herself and has no problem telling you that THE LITTLE MERMAID IS HER FAVOURITE DISNEY FILM AND ALWAYS WILL BE!

I really like the blog post about her eyeshadow palette collection because it actually shows a great comparison between high end and high street eyeshadow brands.

Here’s one of her beaut photographs from this post :

So if you’re into these topics, or even if you’re not, head over and have a mooch, because it’s awesome to get to know our fellow bloggers and it’s great that we all have slightly different interests!

Well! I hope you enjoyed this weeks shoutout and a big thank you to Jess for submitting her blog!

If you would like to be involved in the next Shoutout then paste your link on Wednesdays submission post and I will be sure to have a nosey around your blog!

Lots of Love

Happy Tuesday bloggers!

So I am really excited because I had a blog upgrade! Which means no more annoying ads on my blog posts, and more importantly a snazzy new layout!

I am much happier with the overall design and feel that the categories are more up to date and accessible! It just makes me feel that I am one step closer to being a professional blogger!

The mobile version looks a lot better too!

What do you think can you see the difference ?

FASHION FRIDAY 03: Tropical Sun ☀️

It is FRIDAY! Which means today’s blog post is all about…. FASHION!

If you have been following my blog you will know that I do not like the cold. I feel that is reflected in my attire as I never seem to be wearing anything even remotely warm 😂!

I may have fair skin, but I believe I was born for a warmer climate!

Because it’s been so gloomy, I can’t help but daydream about a holiday to Malaga a few years ago, where I wore this beautiful dress!

It’s just not the done thing to walk around the UK like this.

1: Because I would get pneumonia.

2. I would probably get some strange looks.

So I will stick to wearing these sorts of things for my fashion Friday posts until it becomes a little warmer!

I just love the colour of this dress and the tropical plants in the print! The bralette style bust compliments my body type along with the bodycon fit! If I do say so myself haha

I’m not sure I could handle two of me to be honest. My husband seems to think he would like two of me around the house 🙄 I wonder why!

This beaut dress is from one of my favourite online fashion brands Misguided who are sure to be pulling out some more bangers for your holiday this summer! Check them out if you haven’t, their clothes are amazing and affordable!

Beaut Lips for £1.50 💋

Well hello there to all of you beautiful people! I literally found a bargain of a life time the other day and I’m so impressed with it that I just had to dedicate a blog post to it!

I picked up this beautiful lipstick set by the body collection for £1.50, it had been reduced to half price and was looking real lonely in the sale basket, I was literally in love as soon as I saw it.

For one, the floral design of the containers was so pretty and adequately named ‘vintage bouquet’ I could see these looking lovely on my dressing table!

I am used to such a generic packaging design that these caught my eye instantly. I was really sceptical of the price at first and thought that possibly the quality of the items would be lacking. This idea quickly faded when I looked at the price again! I’m 100% glad I bought them because the quality of the items is actually lovely.

I would use these lipsticks for day to day, out and about or going to work. The liners match up really well also, and add to the overall finish and stability of the lipstick!

As you can see the shades are slightly different with one being more peachy and one a slightly deeper pink. I used the first set of colours for the look below, and also used a metallic lip gloss on top.

I found a link online if you wanted to check them out further, but the one I found is £11! So I’m feeling real lucky right now haha!

Makeup Monday 01: Ocean Vibes 🌊

Happy Monday People!

Well it’s a happy Monday for me anyway because I work Tuesday-Thursday haha!

So today I will be sharing with you my makeup look of the week! I tend to shy away from the colder shades in my eyeshadow palette, but lately I have been challenging myself to be more creative and step outside of my comfy neutral box!

I actually think these shades compliment my hair colour somehow! I honestly felt like a mermaid all day.

Moving shot 👋🏻 why not! I started by layering the lighter blues in This Palette all over the eye lid. I guess it’s more of a beauty box than a palette. My husband bought me this years ago! Although it looks a little bit childish and it’s got a very small price tag it is absolutely amazing!

As you can tell it is extremely pigmented for the price of £20 for the whole set! But I will do another review entirely for that because I would be here all day!

Once I got done layering lighter tones, I focused some darker shades at the corners working them around the lid until I could see a contrast between light and dark. I added a turquoise colour to the bottom eyelid and hey presto!

I finished off the look by applying some beautiful silver glitter from my Jolie Beauty Luxe Palette , some black eyeliner and some beaut false eyelashes, which I will also do a separate review of in a later post!

What do you think? Would you consider adding more blue to your next makeup look?

Lace up boots are my spirit animal right now to be honest. We all need a pair in our lives, they’re BOSS LADY, and so sassy! Generally I find them pretty comfortable too when comparing them to a sandal heel!

Makeup of the day: R A I N B O W

I really wanted to step outside of my comfort zone today and do something a little bit creative with my makeup!

I actually LOVE it! I really didn’t expect to. It’s kinda make me laugh because I’m doing the weekly food shop with my Husband and son when he gets home from work and I’m legit going like this 😂!

Too glam to give a damn that’s what I say!

I spent quite a lot of time on this one, blending each colour. From left to right there’s warm yellow, baby pink, darker pink, deep orange, and blue! I finished off with some liner and lashes for DRAMA. I think I accomplished what I set out to do, which is always a great feeling!

What do you think of this look? And would you ever rock multicoloured eyeshadow?
