Oh my goodness, once again it's been absolutely ages since I posted anything and I apologise for being so rubbish! As usual I have been so busy and haven't had the chance to come on my blog due to holidays and shows ect, but  I'm back now and am aiming to get back up to doing regular posts!

So I'd like to start off by saying I hope you had a lovely summer, mine has been absolutely jam packed and now I'm gettinng ready to get back to my last year of school. I have had a few messages for post requests and I promise I will try to get them done asap:)

I haven't really updated you on the 'my life' recently as I don't really tend to talk about my own life haha, as you may or may not know I have had a lot of negative things happen this year and is another reason I guess I lost some motivation to blog, however I am getting back on my feet and trying to begin to feel better in myself which is a long road but with the right help and support I guess anything is possible and I'm very thankful I am surrounded by some lovely people who will support me.


Yes that's right, meet our new additions to the family; Simba, Blue and Tino.




The two puppies are Japanese Spitz' and they are so cute and so loving. Tino is 1 year old however he is fully grown and I love how small they are because it means I can always pick them up for cuddles!

I have no idea what breed Simba is as he is a cross between a ginger tabby and a black cat (I don't really know my cats very well aha) We have been told he looks Burmese, but who knows? haha, all I know is he's an adorable bundle of fun and I love him and the dogs to pieces.

So that's it for this post, I promise I will try to be back soon, and my next post maybe along the lines of my summer favourites or/and maybe even a summer OOTD:)

I am actually thinking of one day stating some video blogs so if anyone has any tips or ideas, please contact me, it would be much appreciated :-)

Lots of love xo

My wishlist-Spring

This is my first wishlist, and I thought I would share it with all my lovely readers. At the moment I'm pretty broke, but I have lots of competitions and my birthday coming up in the next few months which is very exciting, as it means there will be some more money coming back in :)

1. Hollister High rise short-shorts- £44 £33 I'm getting really excited now with summer coming up, and these short are exactly the kind of summery, beach shorts I am just dying to get hold of! They're quite expensive for a pair of shorts, however I know I will wear them pretty much every day in the summer so it will definitely be worth the buy!

2. Topshop floral stripe and spot blouse-£36 From the second I saw this blouse, I was instantly drawn to it. I am really loving chiffon at the moment and I just love the design on the shirt as it's really girly and cute!

3. Topshop Nails in air kisses-£5 I have currently run out of my blue nail varnish, and this is the next one I am looking to buy. I love the shade of blue and it's a very summery looking colour which I would probably wear most of the time throughout the holidays. It's also a good price for a nail polish so is very affordable for me.

4. Converse all star Hi in pink-£44.99 (office) I have been after these for a while now, as I don't really own any pink shoes and I feel like I should considering it's my favourite colour! I think they're really cute and would brighten up any outfit.

5.MAC so chaud lipstik-£14 I have always wanted a MAC lipstick and I can't wait to get my hands on this one! I think this is  a reasonable price and I would be happy to pay it. I love the reddy/orange colour of this one and it really stands out and would again brighten up a look. I literally can't wait to own one of these!

6. River island Pink heart print skater skirt- £10 I love the design of this skirt so much and when I saw it I just wanted to own one! I later realised that they only do this in Girls sizes, however this doesn't matter for me as I nearly always find that and kind of leg wear fits better in a child's size because women's are always to big round the waist or too long for me :( I think this is a really good price for it and will be willing to pay for it as I loves it that much!

I hope you enjoyed this post and love the products as much as I do!
Please comment and follow as it would mean a lot!

OOTD-Spring holiday

Hello everyone!
It's finally here yay!!!
I decided to redo my OOTD yesterday and change it to a spring one, as where I am in Swanage was really sunny yesterday so I changed to a more summery outfit. So because of this, all these shots were taken on the camp site (yes I did get some funny looks haha)
Floral lace top- New look (around Christmas time)
Skater Skirt-New look
Blue Kustoms-Zalando

 I really love skater skirts at the moment, especially when they are matched with a pair of shoes the same colour. I don't often buy much from New Look,however I fell in love with this skirt and I wanted this top for a part at Christmas time. These are all relatively new clothes I have bought for my trip to New York so the skirt and shoes should still be on sale, however I'm not sure if the top is any more but ho hum.

Bag-A random UK stock of some bag brand in china?
This is my hand luggage bag for New York and I absolutely love it! It's really cute and the perfect size/weight for all my little odds and ends.
So there it is, my OOTD finally!
I have no idea when my next blog post might be, as I am still on holiday. I will do a Preparation and packing for NY post including a meet my best friend/sleepover post with Laura (Lauraspicsxo)
Thanks for reading!
Lots of love xo

Easter-Cider museum and Corfe castle

Hello again! So another reason I have been unable to post recently, is because I am having a very jam packed Easter holiday. The first week has been spent in my Caravan in a lovely little town called Swanage. If you ever get the opportunity to go, then do because it's such a beautiful place and some of the views are just amazing. It also has some gorgeous beaches! I will do a blog post about the whole holiday, however this is just a snippet on what we did today :)

So today just me, my mum and Dad went to a lovely place in Dorset where there was a Cider museum. It sounds boring, however it was actually really interesting to see how the Cider was made. We also got to try some different Ciders (well I didn't because I'm under-age) and we then bought some home made Cider for ourselves :)

One of the machines they use to get the juice out the apples
One of the bottles of Cider we bought

 In the little shop we also found some little traditional biscuits. We bought some different flavoured Dorset butter biscuits and ate them when we got back to the caravan. They were luuurrvely!

OOTD Coming either tonight or tomorrow (tonight might be too much of a blog overload haha)

Thanks for reading :) xo

Apologies! [Please take time to read]

Wow, what a relief to be back! I will start off by wishing you all a very happy Easter and I hope you have spent it well (with lot's of chocolate obviously) Unfortunately I haven't been on here in what feels like ages so I'm really behind with all of my posts  which makes me very sad :( I will eventually do my OOTD which I said in my last post I would do but my camera broke then loads of stuff happened and it was all a big kerfuffle. I hope you don't all hate me for being so useless but I have had a lot on my plate recently so have been unable to find the time/ haven't been in the right state of mind to post. There are some reasons that I will explain to you in this post, however some I can't say as they are very serious and personal to me.

So here we go, where do I start?...
Here seems a good place. (This point will be very brief as it is very personal to me)As I mentioned on my goals and ambitions page, I don't have very much self confidence and I suffer from anxiety. In the last month all of the upset and lowness inside has built up a lot worse than it already was and eventually all the feelings I had bottled up inside came out to my closest friends and family. I didn't intend to tell anyone and the only reason they found out is because my teacher noticed and rung my parents and told me to  tell my best friends. However I am grateful that they are aware now as I am receiving lot's of help and am beginning to feel a lot better in myself and even though I do still feel these horrible emotions, I know that there will be someone there who will help me through it. I was really reluctant about my parents finding out in fear of them being 'disappointed in me' and 'upset with the person I've become' as at the time I felt incredibly low and didn't see why anyone would care. But since telling them I realise that it's not something that should be bottled up inside and I don't know what might have happened if I hadn't told someone. If you reading this have or know someone who has these kind of feelings or self harm, don't keep it behind closed doors, don't hide it behind a fake smile, tell someone, your friends, your parents, a teacher, a doctor, anyone you can trust. Because people do care and will help you see the end, and even if it feels like it won't get better, telling someone will get you that step closer to recovery.

"If you don't see anything beautiful, buy a better mirror. Look a little closer. Stare a little longer. Because there is something inside you that made you keep trying despite everyone who told you to give up"

This happened just over a week ago and again left me with no emotional/ physical strength to do anything. 
Those who know me, will know that Tia was a huge part of my life and family and loosing her was one of the worst things to happen at one of the most inconvenient times. 

On the 4th November 1999, this beautiful fluff ball was born into our world. Out off all the puppies she was my girl (well the only girl haha) and from the age of one, I instantly became attached to her so she became ours. After a few years of growing up together he beautiful mother Micia, sadly passed away. As I was only young I don't really remember this but I do remember lying next to Tia and crying into her coat. It was these moments that made us even stronger as a pair and from then on she became that missing piece in my heart. Wherever I went, I always wanted Tia there with me, we went on walks together, on holiday together and even slept next to each other. She was always the sister I never had and she will never be replaced. She was my comfort when I was sad and lonely, and was always there through thick and thin. We used to have these silly games we used to play and would roll around on the floor together like we had no troubles in the world.   We used to do this everyday up until she became ill...

Finding out there was nothing the vets could do for her was the most horrible news I have ever been told. I didn't want to believe that someone who meant so much to me was going to be taken away. I remember just collapsing to the floor in disbelief and feeling so sick I couldn't move for an hour. It was down to me to decide when it was going to be done and she was so ill, It finally hit me that she needed to be put out of her pain. Now thinking back I realise it was the right thing to do and even though she's not physically there, she will always be there in my heart and no one will ever replace her.She was a huge part of our family and gave us all so much but, sadly on the 22/03/2013 we had to say goodbye. :( Never forgotten, forever in our hearts. Sleep in peace angel xoxo

Everyday/School makeup routine

So a few bits of makeup that I might normally use are missing from the photos. This is either because the didn't fit in the photo, or that I din't think they looked good enough to go in to the photo (photogenic makeup, yep)

At the school I go to, we are allowed to wear makeup (yay) although some schools aren't allowed we are actually quite lucky!
I have loads of different sized and shaped makeup bags, however this is the one I use for my everyday makeup. It is a good size (would fit in a school bag) and has cute little pastel butterflies on it. It was a gift to me so unfortunately I don't know where it's from :(

I do swap and change between the products I use to see which ones I prefer, and these are the ones I am currently using.

  • I start off by cleansing my face (unfortunately I didn't get a photo if these products, however a great cleanser to use is the Soap and Glory Peaches and Clean clenser. It isn't too expensive plus it works and smells great!

  • Then cover up any impurities using my current concealer, which is Boots Shade-away concealer. This works really well and blends into my skin tone.

  • Next I apply my Rimmel London BB cream foundation. I love this stuff as it gives great coverage and doesn't apply to thick or come out orangey. I also love that it does so many things(Primes, Moisturises, Minimises Pores, Conceals, Covers, Smoothes, Mattifies, Brightens and helps Protect!)

  • I then apply a powder lightly over the top, as I don't like heavy coverage and I want it to look natural. I'm always changing the powder I use however the ones it the picture are MUA pressed powder and the Witch Hazel pressed powder (unfortunately I couldn't find an online link for both of these products ) Another powder I like to use- and need to buy more of, is the Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder (transparent)

  • After that I use a small amount of my Estee Lauder Air Bronzer to highlight and add some colour/shimmer to my cheeks. I like this because it doesn't really come out like a dark bronzer, it's more of a gentle shimmer. Again this was a limited product so there is no link to it on the website any more :( 

  • I also gently dust a champaign coloured blusher over my cheek bones to give a natural shine/highlight. A good blush I like to use is the Collection 200 blush as it's a pretty pink colour (you can also take a look at it on Laura's post

  • Then onto my eyebrows. I don't like these big black eyebrows that some girls like to draw on, as I think they look like slugs? I was born with naturally dark eyebrows so I have never needed to do much with them (apart from shaping obviously) For me all I need to use is a slight filling with brown eyebrow pencil to make them even, then set it with a thin layer of clear mascara (definitely not black haha)

  • Moving on to my eyes, first I use the Rimmel London GlamEyes professional liquid eyeliner to line my upper lash line adding a small flick at the end. Then I use my U by Ungargo catwalk khaki liquid liner to line the outer corner of my lower lash line joining to the flick (I was bought this as a gift in January and on the box it says Avon, however there is no link to it any more apart from in foreign countries which is a shame because it's a really great eye liner in a lovely colour) 

  • I then curl my lashes using my Primark eyelash curlers. I absolutely love these and I always curl my lashes before applying any mascara because it makes them look more flattering and even though these were cheep (£1) they still work so well!

  • For my mascara, I currently use two different makes. One is from the colour institute which was part of a box set I was bought (it covers really well giving good, even, well spaced lashes) and the other is the Maybelline The Falsies Black Drama mascara which I love as it makes my eyes seem bigger and more wake. I then comb through my eyelashes to make sure they are even and clump-free. Again Luckily for me I was born with long dark eyelashes that work well with most mascaras.
  • For everyday/school, I go very natural with my lips because it's easier and it doesn't need to be re-applied constantly (I don't have to worry about getting it on my teeth either lol) I either use my nude/pink Colour institute lipstick-sometimes with a bit of Tutti cuti very vanilla gloss (which smells amazing or 17 nude gloss, or I use either of the glosses alone (I like the 17 one as it's mini so easy to take around with me) or some days I just use the Carmex mint lip balm.

So that's it really. During the day I keep my powder, eye liner mascara and whatever I use on my lips in the make up bag and then chuck it in my school bag.
Thank you so much for reading this post, and I hope yo enjoyed it!
I would love for you to comment and would really appreciate any suggestions you may have for products or new blog posts.

p.s. my next blog will be an OOTD which will hopefully be live on my blog tomorrow evening, however I have rehearsals so it may not be up until Monday :)
