Thoughtful Thursday - Rant

Hey Internet Friends,

This Thoughtful Thursday is slightly more of a random rant. You can comment and let me know you're opinions on this and suggest ideas for what else you'd like to see on my blog.

I hate feeling like i have to hide who I am through fear of being judged and criticised for it. We should all be allowed to be who we want and make our own decisions without people bringing us down for it. People need to learn to accept others for who they are and not make them feel like they should hide their true self. It's sad really because everyone has secrets. Everyone has a darkness inside them that continues to grow; that they feel can't be spoken about due to hatred and prejudice of others. It needs to stop. Things need to change.

Top Tips for Perfect Makeup

Hey Internet Friends,
A few weeks ago, I had a poll on my blog asking people to vote for what they wanted to see next and Top Tips won. Thank you to anyone who voted, it really helps me out. Back to the post. Makeup can quite often be awkward a or difficult to apply nicely so here are my top tips to getting your makeup perfect!

Firstly, whenever you apply makeup, you should always try to go so in natural lighting as this help make any errors obvious. If you use bad lighting, you may not notice these errors and may end up with patchy makeup.

My second tip is to try and keep your brushes nice by cleaning them regularly. Makeup easily builds up in them and so it's best to give them a good wash every now and then. Foundation brushes tend to get the worst. If too much foundation builds up in them, you can't use them to apply your foundation as nicely. I prefer to use makeup sponges as they are more affordable and easier to keep clean.

The next tip on my list is to always apply moisturiser before applying any makeup. It helps keep your skin soft, works as a great base and helps prevent skin from dehydrating and drying out.

My final tip is for super long lashes. If you have a slightly smaller budget, you can still use slightly cheaper mascaras to get amazingly long lashes. All you need to do is use eyelash curlers first! Eyelash curlers can be bought very cheaply and do an amazing job at making your eyelashes look so much longer!

Hope these help!

Thoughtful Thursday - Rain

Hey Internet Friends!

I find rain a thing of absolute beauty. Sometimes, I wish I was a raindrop. I'd love to fall freely from clouds in the sky and run down rooftops and windows with all my other raindrop friends. I'd love to come together with others to create puddles for young children to splash in and be happy.  Lots of things in life have two sides. Even simple things like raindrops. They look so fragile and dainty yet have the power to transform into things like snow and hail which can be harsh and violent.

Some people don't like rain but I don't think they see the true beauty behind it. Rain is under appreciated, just like most of the beauty in our world.
 It's strange how late at night you think about random things that wouldn't usually cross your mind. This is one of the thoughts I had one night that I thought I'd share with you all. You can let me know some of your late night thoughts below or on one of my social media pages.

Top Tips - Back to school

Hey Internet Friends!


As I am going back to school next week, and I'm sure most of you will be as well, I thought I'd give you some top tips for going back to school.

First of all, you should always get your bag ready the night before so you don't have to rush around panicking in the morning. I'm a very stress person and this always helps me feel a bit better in the morning. On the topic of bags, I always like to pack a few extra things that always come in handy: anti bacterial hand gel, hair bands/bobbles/elastics, tampons/sanitary towels, hand cream, deodorant and a small amount of makeup. I find these things are always helpful to have as you never know when you'll need them!


My next top tip is that you should stay organised! It means you won't forget things as easily and you'll be in less of a stressful mess. I have calendars, to-do lists and sticky notes everywhere round my room while I'm at school. I like to highlight days off on my calendar so I can count down the days till I can chill out again!

Another top tip us to keep your room tidy! I recommend cleaning it at least once a week as it makes it easier to concentrate, meaning you can get homework completed much quicker. It's also good to reduce the amount of clutter you have in order to it easier to find what you want.


Finally, keep calm! If you are particularly stressy or have panic attacks (like me), yoga or regular exercise (like walking) is brilliant to help you reduce stress and just chill out more. Try to get as much fresh air as possible. Nice weather? Do your homework outside! It makes you feel so much better, rather than being cooped up inside all the time.

Hope these tips help,
Love and Hugs

Thoughtful Thursday - 'Society'

Hey Internet Friends!
Today I decided to post something I wrote one late night last week. Hope you like it and feel free to comment your opinions.
"Us as individuals are pressured by society to act, look and behave in certain manners. If we try to stand out, be unique or we aren't exactly what society want, we get pushed down and made to feel so low. Why all the standards? Where did they come from? After all, we as individuals are part of society; everyone is. So how and why have these so called 'perfect ideals' appeared? Maybe it's down to feeling threatened by others or being jealous of what they have (whether it be physical things or appearances or attitudes and ideas). Maybe we have trouble accepting ourselves so feel the need to bring down others. Maybe we want something to blame and so we create these harsh images of what is right and wrong and label them as what society thinks is best. Or maybe we are just ignorant. As a species, humans are very often ignorant and maybe some of the things we view as 'perfect' originate from the ignorance of others."

Sleepover Bag - Things You Must Pack

Hey Internet Friends,

As I recently went to my BFF's house for a sleepover, I thought I'd tell you what I think are must haves for your sleepover bag!

First of all, you need your basics. Clothes, PJ's, makeup, toothbrush, shoes, etc. I also like to pack dry shampoo incase my hair looks limp and greasy the next day.

 Sweet and chocolate are also a must have for any sleepover! They're perfect for munching on while watching your favourite films.

Finally, I like to pack my phone so I can take plenty of selfies with my bestie. Whether they're nice ones or silly ones, its always good to have something to look back on.

Beauty Reviews - Zoella's 'Let's Spritz'

Hey Internet Friends,

Recently I bought the 'Let's Spritz!' Fragranced Body Mist from Zoella's beauty range. It cost me just £8 for a 45ml bottle which I think is an incredibly reasonable price. I noticed it due to the gorgeous decoration and instantly wanted to try it.

The smell of this body mist I find flowery and fruity but isn't at all overpowering. This makes it perfect for everyday wear.

Like I said before, it was the gorgeous decoration that drew me to the bottle. The pink perfume matches perfectly with the white lace design and the gorgeous turquoise writing. I love the cute blue and white polka dot lid and the simplicity of the bottle shape.

Overall, here is what I would rate the bottle out of 15.
Appearance:5
Smell:5
Value For money:4
Total:14/15

If any of you own this product, let me know what you think of it, either by commenting on this post or through my social media (which can be found here)!

How to be happy

Hey Internet Friends!
Everyone should be happy. If not, here are some of my top tips to keep you smiling!

1. Accept Compliments!
Don't try to deny them, accept that others like something about you, even if you don't.

2. Listen to music
I know whenever I'm feeling down, I love to blast my favourite songs and dance and sing along.

3. Talk about it!
If you have any problems, talk about them with someone you trust and someone who may be able to give you advice or help. Remember, a problem shared is a problem halved!

4. Distractions
If you're feeling really down, thinking about what's troubling you isn't going to help. Distract yourself by reading a book, watching a film, writing a blog or just having a random chat with someone.

5. Feel the love
Find things you really like about yourself and don't stop until you find at least 3 things. It may take a while but you have to learn to love who you are; after all, everyone is amazing in their own ways!

Bedroom Beauty

Hey Internet Friends!
 
Welcome to my blog! I hope you enjoy my first post.
 
Bored of your bedroom being plain and boring? Well with these tips and ideas, your bedroom will be looking stunning in the blink of an eye.


Themes
Pick a single colour and use this as the theme for your room. You can find things like rugs, lamps, curtains and paint in this colour as it helps tie everything together. Use different shades to add variety to your room and make it more interesting. I think colour themes are great as you can make your room more personal.
Another theme idea is to pick something you love and find items that represent it. For example, if you love sea life, you can get blue curtains and rugs to represent the sea, paint sea creatures on the walls, hang up pictures and maybe even find fish cushions!

Painting
If it's fine with the owner of the house, paint your room! You can choose any colour(s) you like. A top tip is to choose a light or pastel colour. This makes you room brighter and seem bigger. Another tip for making your room look bigger is to have an accent wall. This is where just one wall is painted in the colour of your choice and the rest are painted in a neutral colour (like white, cream or stone).

Plants
An easy way to add colour to any room is by using plants. Choose a pot and flower that matches the colours in your room and place on a windowsill. Not very good at remembering to water a plant? Why not get a cactus? They come in a huge variety of shapes and sizes, meaning they will fit into even the smallest of rooms. They don't take much looking after, yet still bring in nature and colour.

Photographs
Personalise your room with photos! You could place them in frames around your room to decorate shelves and desks, or you could just stick them to a wall and create a huge memorial! This way you can have all your memories on display instead of hiding them away in photo albums that get forgotten about.

Windowsills
Now, windowsills always tend to look empty and boring. If yours does then why not decorate it? Find objects that match the theme of your room and display them for everyone to see. Large paperweights and different shaped pots always look brilliant and are so easy to find. You could always get an unusual shaped bottle and fill it with plastic flowers to create your very own feature. Glass items are also perfect as they reflect the light coming in from the window and occasionally create rainbows on the walls. So, what are you waiting for? Go to your local stores and charity shops and get rummaging! You never know, you might find a bargain!
