Getting over a friendship is something no one can prepare you for. One day you have someone on your side the next they’re gone. It’s not like a breakup where it’s apparent you aren’t together any more. Some friendships fade, others end in an argument and some just disappear out of the blue.Continue reading
I can’t lie for the first few months this year I wasn’t really into blogging, I had quite a few of pre-written posts and I was busy getting to grips with my new role at work. But with quarantine I suddenly had a lot of spare time on my hands. So I thought I would get back into writing these posts as I enjoyed doing them last year!Continue reading
The lockdown here in the UK has now been extended for another 3 weeks after already being on lockdown for the last 3 weeks. With the world feeling like we are at a stand still, it feels like it’s a long way off until everything will be back to normal.Continue reading
Hello everyone, I hope you are all well! In today’s post I’m going to be talking about how I’ve started to get out of my comfort zone.

Over the last few years on my blog I have written down a few of my goals I want to achieve throughout the year to share with you. This year I wasn’t planning on writing one. However, as I sat down to write up a different blog post, I hard the urge to write down a few goals.Continue reading
Hello everyone, as I sit writing this I feel very reflective of 2018. I’m pretty sure I said this in my Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018 and Goodbye 2016, Hello 2017 I feel like this year has been a rollercoaster. Everything that has happened in the past 12 months, the good and the bad has shaped into a person I am so happy to be.Continue reading
As I have been more active on social media and taking more pictures, I realised that as I took these photos of myself I would analyse everything. Every little detail about myself and what other people might think when they look at these photos.Continue reading
Growing up I was never someone who was naturally confident. I was shy and had zero self confidence. I over thought and over analysed everything and I never felt good enough. I would look at the girls around me and wonder why I couldn’t be more like them: prettier, loads of friends and super confident.
In junior school I would be teased by the boys, they used to make fun of how big my lips were. They called me fish lips, pulling back their own lips to make them bigger. Being 9 I couldn’t understand why they would make fun of my lips. My parents would just say to ignore it and that they’re only jealous. Which still didn’t make sense to me, why would they be jealous of my lips and convey it by making fun of me?!Continue reading
Hi guys! I have been thinking lately about starting the first series here on my blog all things I have learnt over the past few years and I wanted to share tips to help you do the same. As much as I love makeup and the beauty world, something also important to me is mental health. It’s so easy to become bogged down in everyday life and get caught up in things.
I’m really bad at letting a negative mindset affect my mood and my day. Like I can’t shake that feeling off, it’s like this jacket of negativity is glued to me. Whether the cause of the jacket being put on is down to what someone has said to me, if my blog has a slow day or I feel negative about what I’m doing with my life. Those things can all be solved. Having a negative mind won’t get me any closer to being happier or those problems being solved. So these are some of the things I do to change my negative mindset that I have learned over the past few years.Continue reading
