Freshen up for spring!

Tarte Amazonian 12 hour clay blush Flush, Dazzled and Captivating 

Hey everybody so I've been thinking, I haven't really stuck to my vow! This is a beauty/ life related blog. Sooo.. As there's been a lot of life related stuff I decided to write something to do with beauty so enjoy!

I'd never tried any of Tarte's amazing rich, highly pigmented Amazonian Clay Blushes, so was really excited to hear there's now an easy way to buy them in the UK. A range of Tarte products are now available online, including a number of shades of these classic Blushes.
The blushes have an amazing colour to them that can be easily blended in to create the look you want. They can be layered up for a bright, colourful look, or lightly applied for a really natural glow. I love using the darker shades for contouring too, some of the more brown-toned shades work great as bronzers also. 

The packaging is beautiful, the little mirrored compact is so handy and I love that the outer packaging is the same shade as the inner product, making them so easy to grab the colour you want out of the drawer. The simple outer hides a really lovely imprint on the inner blush compact too, which is a lovely little extra.

My favourite shade is definitely Captivating, which is being picked up a lot more than the other two at the moment. Although I do feel like it's a bit more of a summery shade and that flush is a lot more apt for this time of the year here in the UK, what with winter just around the corner.

Are friends too small?

Hi everyone!

First I'd love to thank you on all the great tips and lovely comments about my panicky post, it really lifted a load of weight off my shoulders. Knowing it might pass and that there is a proper cause makes me feel a lot better! You guys are the best :)

Now I said I would take a break from all the deep thoughtful stuff and start writing more lighthearted pieces but I mean we all have our ups and downs in life and I promised to be completely honest I thought I have to let you in on whats happened...

When I was younger I had lots of beautiful little coats and shoes and all that but once you get older they don't seem to fit right? Well I'm starting to think this can happen with friends too. Like, say your a coat (it seems very random but it's the best that I can think of) and you have a little girl or boy that wears you but when they get to big for you, you get thrown out or dumped at a charity shop. Then the owner goes on to a new coat.

Well I think teenage girls are exactly like that. Like a coat but with the gossiping and bitchiness (I'm pretty sure that's how you spell it). Everything she says and does is just hurtful and I'm not going to say who it is because that's our relationship online isn't it?

At first I thought it was something I was doing or saying, I would come home from school blaming myself because I'm not like the other person she's ran off to or that I'm too small for her.

I started wondering whether friends are like clothes, once there too small you have to buy new ones. And when we feel uncomfortable it's not because we've done something to upset or anger them it's because there to small and we've outgrown them.

How about you?

Do you have any friends that are too small, I'd love to here your thoughts in the comments as I didn't get much response from all of you last time!

Hello everyone!

This may sound crazy but I'm so thankful for those eight people who had bothered to press that followed button, it means a lot. And I know my blog hasn't taken off in three days or something! But I wasn't expected to even get any page views so thank you so much!

This weeks post is really personal to write about but I thought when I started this blog I promising to be completely honest, so I guess I thought i might be easier if I jut go ahead and tell it. I found that having a blog was a good place to express my feelings, a bit like a diary but obviously many more people read it! And so today I was going to bring up a story, a true story, something that has just happened and I'm sure many people will relate.

I'm growing up now, and when girls grow up hormones kick in and they make you do things and feel certain emotions that you would usually do or feel. I think I like someone but I can't talk to him at all I just get so nervous around him. 

Do you ever get that feeling when you want to say something but you can't because you scared or what they'll think? Well I've suffered from this feeling my whole life and it's only really starting to show. No one knows about this secret 'crush' but me me I don't think I want to tell anyone.

Although the awkward thing is I don't think he likes me which is embarrassing. But I've had these images in my mind that we're like meant to be! Or something crazy like that. But some time ago I was in a bus crash it was quite scary, but everyone was fine. When the bus stopped after the crash smoke was coming out the bonnet and there was lights everywhere, I was quite dizzy, however I didn't realise I had been knocked out and I was so nervous to talk to anyone. And I think this is why every time I get nervous or something I go dizzy, feel like I can't breath and it's started to happen ever since I've sort of fallen for Guy (that's not his actual name I'm just doing it for privacy reasons - and 'Guy' I have no idea where that came from) so I'm not sure if this is normal or not but I just thought I'd let you as I don't know what to do!

I hope you don't mind me writing about this! Everything will go back to normal next week but I just thought I don't want everyone to think as I have a blog, I'm the most confident person ever! If any of you have been through what I just described id love to know tips and tricks on how to help please lave them in the comments!

Fresh start!

I decided to start this blog to talk about beauty and fashion and all things related to that, but to be honest that's not really who I am. Yes I like makeup and fashion and pretty much everything to do with beauty, but really I'm quite a nervous person and I'm going to talk more about my life and all things personal. 

I hope you beauty lovers reading this don't mind but I want to open up more about me and my life! Obviously I'm not going to reveal my name, just for safety reasons but I hope you enjoy! 

So I know, technically new year started like 8 days ago, but I thought I didn't really talk about it so Happy New Year everyone! Today I was going to talk about New Year resolutions because that's what your supposed to do at the beginning of the year right? 

So as it is pretty much the beginning of the year I'm going to share my resolutions with you. 

My resolutions this year have been to do with actions and self-confidence so please don't judge as I'm not going to be doing those ones like: NEVER EAT CHOCOLATE and LOSE 20 STONE or something crazy like that which I could never achieve. Therefore I've come up with two that I think I could achieve:


As I was writing this I realise that the only reason is I am is because of the people I care about, like my family and friends and all the lovely people who read my blog (if there are any!) so I would like to thank you!

I hope the changes to my blog aren't too drastic and change your mind about following me and such, but I just wanted to let you know I will be posting more blog posts like this! 

I would love to here your ideas or you new year resolutions down below in the comments, I'd love to read them! 

Thanks for understanding the changes,

Tough Luck

I was in Yonkie Corner yesterday when I spotted these awesome pair of grey Nike Janoskis with mint green swoosh! They did stand out from the rest because of this brightly coloured swoosh.. Ha! The colours are not that subtle which is why I like them, however I was supposed to be getting my Dr Martens which I do absolutely love. But occasionally I like to go with the slightly brighter colours and buy some statement shoes, but unfortunately I didn't have enough money with me to buy them, and then I left them:( goodbye trendy looking Janoskis...

Then I carried on to the converse corner where I found this lovely pair of  dark green Converse with fluff on the inside, which by the way I love on those frosty winter days! Converse shoes tend to make my feet cold as they are made from such thin material, however these ones were perfect! But sadly when I went to ask if they had them in my size the lady came back and told me they didn't have them:(


Hello everyone! I never thought I'd ever get round in starting a blog but it just seems a great place to express my thoughts and opinions on things and I wanted to give it a go!
I hope you enjoy my blog and come an join in on the fun! 

Bare with me as it will take a while to come up with topics to talk about and reveal my thoughts but I will get there eventually! 

I hope you all had a great Christmas with whoever you spent it with and have a great New Year, prepare yourself for 2015!
