Where Have I Been? What Will Come Next?

Hey lovelies,  here I am going to be answering some questions on where I have been and what is to come next for myself and this blog.

 

1. Why did you stop posting?

I stopped posting on here because I took a break from wearing makeup. In fact I stopped wearing makeup all together, which obviously defeats the purpose of my blog as it is entirely beauty based.

2. Why did you stop wearing makeup?

My skin! My skin had become a problem. I was wearing makeup to cover how bad my skin was underneath, that I actually made it worse! So I have spent some time working on clearing my skin and finding the right products for me.

 

3. What have you been up to?

Where do I start… I have been focusing on my career in education. I have now been promoted to team leader of pre-school which is a big step for me. I have conquered some fears e.g. flying in an aeroplane. My new found hobby is ice skating. Just living life to the fullest as they say.

 

4. What is to come next?

I am back to wearing makeup and it is still a big passion of mine. I want to bring the blog back to life again, but also bring some lifestyle into it too. I want to be able to take breaks from wearing makeup and still feel like I can post on my blog.

There will be lots of makeup tutorials coming and also posts about my life e.g. the ice skating, my career and where I am travelling to.

 

I hope this answers everything and I will see you again soon.

Hello lovelies,

I was lucky enough to get some vouchers for my birthday, one of which was for Boots. So I went into my local shop just to pick up some of my favourite products when I noticed a couple of big baskets on the shelf near the entrance with clearance products in it. Everyone seemed to be amazed by the things they were finding in the baskets. These are the products I found and their original prices.

Some people think that the clearance sections don’t have good items but if you really have a good look, you’ll find some really good bargains. ❤️

21st Birthday Makeup🥂

Hello again lovelies,

I have been taking a mini break for a week or so as on the 6th March it was my 21st birthday. I wanted to make it a special celebration so I decided to do some dramatic makeup, especially on the eye, to share with you all.

Here is the fun part of doing my makeup everyday. I love creating quite out their looks so I thought I’d go very out of my comfort zone for my 21st. I decided to use two very loved palettes that I have recently purchased. You will find them in my previous post if you click here.

The palettes are both from Makeup Revolution and they were the Re-loaded Iconic Vitality Palette and the Love Conquers All Palette.

The first thing I did was prime my lids with the L’Oreal Eye Primer. Once that had sunk into my lid, I took this nude shade, from the Vitality palette, on a NYX fluffy brush and buffed it into my crease as a transition shade.

I then took another fluffy brush from NYX and took this more orangy nude shade and buffed that in to the outer crease to really ombre out the look so it looks completely blended. I like to do this when I am going to use vibrant colours as they can look super harsh in photos like you haven’t blended it at all.

Next I took the same fluffy brush I used with the orangy shade and I took both of these red shades (they look more vibrant in person) and tried to focus it on the very corner to give my eye some dimension. After applying the vibrant shades I took the very first brush I used with the nude shade and I made sure everything was blended smoothly with no harsh lines.

At this point I knew I wanted to do a half cut crease so I took my beloved Collection concealer and carved out the first half of the lid. I then took this beautiful shimmery white shade and a little bit of the highlighter from the middle, onto a flat Lottie London brush and went to town with packing it on. I packed so much on because I wanted it to be blinding. You know I love sparkles.

Thank you for reading and I will see you again soon.

Vinted…Fab or Fail?

1508320831517

Today’s post is something a bit different, still related to makeup and beauty but also catering to the people that also love fashion.

Recently I have discovered this app called Vinted. This is an app which I believe is used in a lot of countries. Users can sell and buy either second hand or brand new items which are being sold as little as a fraction of the price. People sell all kinds of brands from Primark – Gucci.

Yes, these are things that people own and not from companies or manufacturers. So this might be a 50/50 app as I know some people are not keen on owning things that are second hand. However, you can filter the app to give you options of the quality of the items, so you can opt for products that are new with the tags still on.

On the home screen you can filter the different sections to find things that are in your size and change the price range if you are on a budget. You can buy things for as low as £1…can you believe it? When you see something you like you can favourite it and get notifications when the seller reduces the price and if the product gets sold. Sellers also give you bundle options so you are not paying double the price for delivery. Great right?One of my favourite things is that you can private message the sellers before you buy any item with any questions, queries and counter offers.

It doesn’t just stop at women’s clothes! It has shoes, children’s clothes, men’s clothes, accessories, makeup, skin care, nail care and bags/purses. In my opinion it is literally every shop you need in one app.

I brought a couple of items from one seller. There was a pair of Zara leggings and a jacket. Separately they were just under £3 each but the seller offered me £3.50 for both of the items and then postage on top of that. They came within the specified time and were in the same condition as stated by seller.

 

For me this app is.. 1508320977163 and I would be so happy to shop from their again.
