Why Some Bloggers SHOULDN’T Do Makeup Tutorials…

The truth behind every photo or video I post is this – my family and I have so much fun. We are all crazy and annoying but oh my goodness, we have such a laugh!

I was looking back through my camera recently when I found an attempt at doing my sister’s makeup when she came home a few months ago. The footage was absolutely hilarious. There is so much stuff I can’t show you because it wouldn’t make sense, and so much stuff I would find too embarrassing to post… and disclaimer: I’m so bad at makeup it hurts.

I really hope you enjoy this little video showing the truth behind a lifestyle blogger’s makeup tutorial – enjoy!

Why Some Bloggers Shouldn’t Do Makeup Tutorials

Ideas?

I have so many content ideas right now, ah it is super exciting! The best (and worst) part of this, is that a lot of  my ideas will likely be done via video – omg interactive posting? Check me out.

The problem with this though, is that I work full-time… and it is winter… so it’s dark when I wake up and dark when I leave work…

Luckily for me, I have booked this Friday off work (more details on my Thursday & Saturday plans will emerge shortly, I’m sure…) So maybe… MAYBE…. you’ll have some new stuff on this little blog o’ mine shortly. Maybe…

But for now, here is a sunny island throwback on this glum Tuesday morning – have a happy day everybody!

Free stylin’ it

Woah, I am in absolute deadline mania recently – sorry for not keeping up with you guys, I’m totally working my butt off I promise! 

I’m having a night off tonight and filmed this little bit of free style on the piano with my mom as my trusty partner. Cheers momma. Hope you enjoy this little twiddle of my thumbs. 

​I have an exciting day planned for Thursday this week and a busy weekend too, so I promise you’ll be hearing from me very soon… make sure to follow my Instagram for lots of updates and pictures of my beloved doggy Gilbert (with the odd side order of what I’m eating too…)

Speak again soon!

Embroidery Baby

I absolutely adore the embroidery trend right now. I think it is absolutely adorable!

Embroidery boots, dresses, skirts, tops, bags…. it is a trend hitting everywhere, and is super versatile even when it is so simple.

I particularly love my boohoo shift dress that I recently purchased – it is really easy to dress up or down. 

Me and Ben visited Cadbury World on Sunday and I opted for a little Sunday elegance, wearing my shift dress, black tights and a pair of black trainers. To dress it up, little black boots would do!

And of course, a little black leather jacket was essential in this super bitter October…

Ghouls are goals

Don’t you just adore this time of year? You get to play with face paint and act like you’re 5 again. What could you not love about Halloween?!

Tonight I opted for a sparkly spooky skull/scary gal… I don’t technically think I’d pass for a skull in terms of my attempt at bone structure?…

I hope you like the final look – let me know what you think, and make sure to get yourself some face paint so you can get your ghostly glam on this Autumn!

To create this look I used:

Snazaroo Black & White face paint

A variety of shimmery eye shadows (use as a highlight on top of the black paint to get this super shimmer!)

Grey wig from Amazon

Lots of good paintbrushes 

Day of the Girl

Today is Day of the Girl, a day dedicated to raising awareness of the struggles girls across the world may face. 

Whether it is challenges with getting an education or healthcare, being subject to harassment or not having equal opportunities, Day of the Girl aims to show that each and every female is empowered and has the capability to be powerful!

This years theme is “Girls’ Progress = Goals’ Progress”. And what does that mean?

It means that a girl’s progress is just as important and infulential as a boy’s progress! It means that if we do good, the world will do good too!

So in spirit of World Girl Day, lets aim to make progress today. Whether that means you tackle an assignment you’ve been putting off, go for a run and beat your personal best or even research empowering women so that you can be inspired, lets make today happen.

Use hashtag #DayOfTheGirl to help raise awareness and inspire others today, and make sure to check out http://www.unwomen.org/en/news/in-focus/girl-child for all the details on a day dedicated to inspiring girls across the world and reminding them of their power in society! 

Let’s look for new opportunities… Let us go and explore the world…Show off your creativity! Express it!and WORK HARD. Whether you’re at uni or training in a job, lets do this ladies.

Be the Flamingo

Happy Sunday people of the web🌸

Check out these super cute glasses that have made their way into the depths of our kitchen…  I thought it was the most appropriate thing to share with you before the new week begins to help remind everyone that everything in life is about your perspective, and that you’ll only succeed if you have the right grasp on things. 

Don’t see the glass as half empty, see it as half full. And don’t be a pigeon, be a god damn flamingo. Why? Because you’re beautiful and you need to start telling yourself that, and believing you can achieve whatever your heart desires to!I’ll be back in touch later this week as Molly left for university yesterday (cry cry) so I have a nice little snippet coming up for you, all about it!

Happy Sunday lovelies, and happy Monday for you too!

Sunday Funday

I had a lovely day yesterday, enjoying the sunshine with my lovely Ben, before he travelled back to camp. We decided to take Gilbert to the park and had a good hour or so strolling in the sunshine talking about this and that – a perfectly relaxing afternoon.

We soon walked up a huge appetite and decided to try out the new dessert shop that has recently opened in the neighbourhood – I opted for the cookie collision dough (three types of cookies in one dough. Amazing!) with a pot of tea and Ben stuck with a milk chocolate cookie dough and Oreo milkshake. They were both delicious (the cookie coma soon took effect) and we will definitely be making it a tradition…Whoops!

Hope you had a lovely Sunday too!
