I am 22 years old, and although that may not sound old enough to have very much hindsight and retrospect, I made it through my teenage years and I experienced a lot. I have learnt many lessons in the (relatively) short time I have lived, and if my advice and guidance can help even one person on their life journey then I’m happy with that.
Skincare is so important for me. Clear skin is always in, and it’s essential for ensuring you have a good base for make up application. For me it’s always skin first, make up second.
It’s mid-July and with highs of 30+ degrees, you might think it would be ridiculous to try and style black outfits. Black is not a colour typically associated with summer – it’s more of an autumn/winter thing. Summer months are for yellows, blues, greens… Actually pretty much any colour other than black!
But sue me, I’m a rule-breaker!
I think I speak for everyone when I say that, at the end of the day, all we really want is just to be happy.
Happy people live longer – this is a fact. You can quote me. I also truly believe in the law of attraction, which essentially means that the happier you are and the more positive energy you put out into the world, the more positivity you will attract. So happy people live happy lives, and negative people, well… they don’t!
Hello and welcome back to another episode of ‘thinking out loud’ (I think that’s what I am going to call these little ranty opinion pieces…) do you think Ed Sheeran will mind?
Today I really want to talk about social media, and the amazing but also devastating impact it can have on peoples’ lives.
So get comfy because I have a feeling this could be a long one!
Social media platforms are incredible. Things like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. They keep people connected, and they help people form new connections. They give people a place to be authentically themselves, a place to express their opinions, their style, and their ideas about life. It’s amazing and honestly one of the best things to come out of the internet (other than internet shopping, which is also pretty great).
In this blog post I am going to be reviewing The Ordinary skin care products, as well as their make up range. I have tried LOTS of their products now, so I will be posting my honest opinion and rating each product out of 5.
For those of you that don’t know about The Ordinary, erm, where have you been?! This brand has been everywhere recently and has really taken the skin care industry by storm. Part of the Deciem group, their tag line pretty much sums them up “Clinical Formulations with Integrity”. They specialise in high performance, specifically targeted skin care treatments – they have a scientific approach which means that all of their products look like they have come straight from the lab. Which isn’t a bad thing – in fact it makes the brand more appealing in my opinion. There’s no fuss, no fancy scents or unnecessary ingredients. It’s not supposed to be indulgent, it’s just supposed to work.
When I wake up in the morning, the thing I most look forward to (after a cup of tea, of course) is sitting down to do my make up. I just love it! It chills me out, gives me time to breathe and get my thoughts together for the day, and it makes me feel good at the end of it.
I am writing this at a particularly vulnerable time – I’ve just checked my bank balance. It made me feel physically sick to be quite honest with you. So if there are any typos throughout this post, it’s because I am shaking.
It’s less than half way through the month, where the f$*k has all my money gone?!
I actually googled “what to write my first blog post about” but then I decided that was maybe just a teeny bit tragic. And also google gave me very little inspo.
