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.

What I Got From Boots For £2 🤭

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. ❤️

Jack Frost Inspired Eyeshadow Look ❄️

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The big day is coming soon, what better way to celebrate the holidays than doing Christmas inspired makeup looks. I’m really excited about this makeup look as it is inspired by the personification of the cold, icy weather – Jack Frost. I took to Google to get some ideas for this look and think of some ideas to go with it. I decided to take the Jack Frost character representation from the 2012 movie “Rise of the Guardians”.

This character represented the weather perfectly with the white’s and the blue. Elsa from hit movie Frozen would be the perfect representation too. This helped me with the idea of putting quite shiny blues and whites and lots of highlighter on the lids, inner corners, nose and lips. The pink part of the eyeshadow look came from the effect the recent snowy weather had on me. My cheeks always go a rosy colour in the frosty weather so I thought adding it in would be the perfect representation of what it is and what it can do to you.

❄️What I Used❄️

The first palette was from NYX. It is the Ultimate Multi-Finish Palette (Sugar High). This palette has a lot of natural and rosy colours, perfect for a subtle smokey eye.

I began by priming my lids with concealer as I find this most efficient for my eyes. The concealer I used was Collection Lasting Perfection in the lightest shade.

To re create the frost and the ice, I picked up the NYX In Your Element: Wind palette. This palette has some beautiful shimmery blues and whites in. I don’t think I could have picked a better palette.

3 Things About Me (They Might Shock You!)

  1. You all know from my blog that I adore makeup and I am such a girly girl, but the other part of me is actually really into watching motor sport. I like watching speedway and going to events and enjoying the raw-ness of it.
  2. I don’t like pizza – please don’t hate me 😥
  3. I am an old fashioned kind of girl: I adore music from the 80’s rather than modern, I adore the old fashioned fairytale love etc. I think I was born in the wrong era

_.-*-._.-*-._.-*-._.-*-._.-*-._

Question time! 

Katilyn kindly asked me some questions a long side this award so I am going to answer them as best I can.

1. Do you feel the need to follow blog trends? If so, how do you keep up with them?

Honestly, I have never kept up to date with trends. I write and post about what I want which works for me. Personally I am not a fan of seeing a hundred posts on the same topic. I like a variety but that is just personal preferance.


2. How do you stay motivated to write your posts?

I have this cute blog book which I write ideas and things in for different posts. If you write about doing a hundred posts you will never run out, especially in the beauty industry as there is so much you can talk about and do.


3. What do you feel is the hardest thing about blogging?

I think it is keeping to a schedule. When I first started I wanted to put up posts twice a week but with working full time and posts taking a long time to make I only post once a week and maybe twice if I can get a good post done.


4. What are your top 3 favorite beauty products?

Concealer: Maybelline Age Rewind

Mascara: Benefit Bad Gal Lash

Brows: Freedom Dip Brow Pomade


5. What is your favorite book turned movie?

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver.

Bonus Silly Question:

6. If you would like to share, what is the funniest thing to happen to you in public?

This is a very true story! I was actually on Goodge Street in London heading up to Tottenham Court road to do some shopping. I was wearing platform boots and there was a raised slab on the pathway. So, like an idiot, I stacked it!!! I didn’t fall completely over, I managed to catch my balance but all I heard was this voice say “are you alright love?”. I looked up and it was none other than comedian Russell Brand. I was so embarrassed, I went as red as a post box!
