What I Got For Christmas 2013




First of let me just say its nearly Christmas 2014 style. I know early thinker, but before you know it the year will gone faster then you can say eggs for breakfast. Im not quite sure where i got that from. Im watching chitty chitty bang bang and sounded like they said that. They definitely did not! Back to the point. I am so so grateful and thankful for my family for buying me these gifts and i am in no way bragging. I also got tickets to see Queen B in London next year with my cousin, aunt, mum and sister and words can't describe how excited i am. I like to think I'm related to beyonce… not a chance in the world.  I have also done a video, where you can see everything in more detail, so be sure to check that out belowwwww. Anyway, i hope you had a lovely christmas and have a lovely new year.

2013

Well, to be honest with you, I'm bloody glad this year is over. Its not been the best year, intact i think its been the worst. Don't get me wrong, I've had some good times and have got good memories, but theres been a hell of people that i know and know off passed away. One of them affected me very much so and it has been the most horrible feeling ever. Ive been lucky enough only to have 1 person from my family die of which i can remember. So i feel extremely lucky in this case, but having someone who you were very close to doesn't make the situation easy, worse when your on holiday and you get the news as well. This was also the first funeral i ever attended and i literally cried as soon as we walked in. Its not a nice place to be, but knowing that the person is in a much better place and isn't suffering anymore, almost does make it a tad better, but never seeing them again or them not getting to see their children again, is such a sad and overwhelming experience. Its really made me think about life and value it a lot more. You really have got to live like everyday is your last. I am not an overly emotional person, but speaking about one person to anyone always gets me teary eyed and i find it hard. I don't think i was overly close to her, but she was an amazing woman and i do miss her dearly and she did give the best hugs. I believe that you don't look back on the sad times, but look back on the happier times as i feel thats what most people would have wanted, to celebrate the life they lived, not the sad, unhappy times they had. My friend is aware that i am there for her and she needs anything, I'm only up the road or a phone call away. Im not seeking attention here, my blog is my place for my feelings and thoughts. I think its important to speak and write about all aspects of life, and telling people  i don't know who can't judge me, i feel makes it easier as i don't like telling my feelings to people i do know. Odd i know. 

On a more positive side, i went on 2 holidays, 1 more eventful then another, but both were extremely fun and a good memory to treasure. Gran Canaria was just a nice week away with my cousins and we had fun, got bad news, had a little argument and got over it. I don't think I've ever laughed so much in my life and don't think i will ever be able to forget it. The weather was amazing, the smells were interesting who cleans sewers out next to a hotel. spent a whole day inside and out of the sun. could have got a better tan, if that stupid orange van wasn't there. Morocco was also an amazing holiday, also don't think I've ever laughed so much more then this holiday. Bliss weather, amazing hotel and the most amazing 10 days. I have enjoyed my holidays out of the uk, but i always do as I'm not the biggest fan of this country.

I want to achieve so much next year and I'm excited to do it. I never ever ever stick to new years resolutions, but this year, theres something which is making me want to do it more and i know what it is and why. I am going to do my very best to do them. I also am going to make a jar with notes of good times, achievements and my resolutions and then at the end of 2014, read them out and see what i have achieved. Fingers crossed, i will still be on youtube, and i want to do it on there as i think having something else to motivate will really help. You may or may not be aware of my new recent venture into the scary youtube land. I have only got 3 videos so far, but i love it. Its so much fun to film and edit and think of new ideas and concepts. I will leave my channel here if you want to check it out :)

New Years Resolutions :

1. To continue with youtube
2. Blog more ( i always say this)
3. To graduate uni with a 2:1
4. LESS PROCRASTINATION & MORE WORK (this is a big one)
5. To continue with my weight loss journey (video coming soon)
6. Work out more
7. Don't give up
8. Grow my nails ( again, always do this)
9. Become more confident within my self.
10. Live my life to the max and like everyday is the last.
11. Take photos and make memories
12. Don't waste money. This means not buying excessive amounts of makeup and not using it. :( 

There we go, i want to to achieve all of these. I think i can do my best and stick to them well. she says. I will let you know how i am getting on with them, i want to do monthly updates or like 3 month updates. Who knows, we shall see. I just want to make a massive thank you to all of my readers and subscribers, it means a lot that you are still here, although my blog has been very m.i.a at the moment, i will try my best to update you more. The only valid excuse i have is, I'm a 3rd year uni student so i have a s**t ton of work, but i will try my best. multi-taking at its best. I hope you all have a lovely new year and are spending it better then more, doing uni work and watching a crappy tele show. I live a thrilling life i know.

Christmas x2 Get Ready With Me


Christmas is over and next year soon approaching. I went to my granddads house yesterday for christmas x2. I decided to film a little get ready with my video. Its not perfect but it was fun to do. As you can see from the video, i don't wear foundation if i don't need to and i normally just use concealer. My skin has become a lot better since, but on the odd occasion, i will apply some.  I did actually apply a full face of makeup before i filmed the second half and i ended up taking it off, as i just didn't like the outcome. This is pretty much my everyday makeup, when i wear it as if i don't need or can't be bothered, then i won't apply any. 

Products Used 
HD Brows Brow Shadow - I don't know the name of the set, but i just used the shade thats similar to omega.
Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer
No7 Translucent Pressed Power
Chanel Vitalumiere Foundation - B20
Nars Laguna Bronzer
Bourjois Brown Eyeliner
