2016 Blogging Goals!

at December 28, 2015 0 comments

I've seen quite a few other people doing goals for 2016 in terms of their blog and YouTube channels and I thought I would do the same. Most of the time, I try to keep my goals away from the internet, that way I don't get disappointed if I don't meet them.

Anyway without further ado, here are my 2016 Blogging Goals;

1. Get up to 6000 page views!
2. Finally start up my YouTube channel properly. 
3. Start a YouTube collab channel.
4. Complete a whole month of blogging! (Literally my biggest goal right now.)
5. Improve on blog photos.
6. Make more fashion posts.

I think all of my goals are doable but I guess we shall see!

I hope you all have enjoyed the holiday season and I will see you next time!

What I got for Christmas (2015)

at December 27, 2015 0 comments

This year I had no idea what I wanted for Christmas, and even after writing out a Christmas wishlist, I still wasn't too sure what I wanted to ask for. 

Before I carry on though, I would just like to make it clear that I am incredibly grateful for everything that I received this year. I enjoy reading other peoples 'What I Got For Christmas' posts but I understand that they're not everybody. If you are one of those people that isn't terribly keen on reading about other people presents then it's probably best you click away now. However, if you don't mind it, then by all means just keep reading.

I got some Moleskin notebooks with squared paper! I love Moleskin notebooks and I am super happy with these because I can now start doing my journals properly and I am very excited about that. To go alongside my notebooks, I also received a dip pen with various nibs and a pot of black ink by Winsor & Newton. 

I got a gorgeous new coat and jumper from Forever 21. You may be hearing more about the coat at later date in a future post! The jumper is just a simple red/plum colour. It's great as just an everyday item and for those comfy days that everyone needs once in a while. 

And finally, new makeup!!! I received the W7 In the buff: Lightly Toasted eye shadow palette and I also got an Illamasqua eye shadow quad, which I wore on Christmas day because I was so excited to try it out. I only have two other high end makeup products (Benefit's Hoola Bronzer and a MAC lipstick) so this is really exciting for me. 

That's all for today. Thank you all for reading, I really appreciate it. I hope you all had a very lovely Christmas :)

Blogmas Day 19: Society6 and more!!!

at December 19, 2015 0 comments
Hello everyone!

Just a very quick update for you all. I have recently joined Society6!!! I know I already have my Redbubble account but I want a place specifically to sell my photography.

Unfortunately I'm unable to sell them by myself because I don't have a very good printer and I also don't have a lot time, especially with college getting busier day by day! 

I have also joined Facebook! I'm not quite sure what I'm doing just yet but I'm getting there... 
The page that I've made is surrounding my photography. I wanted a simple place where I could upload my work where most people will see it. 

So I apologise for the very boring post filled with updates that most of you probably won't care too much about. The next post I promise will be a good one!

Thank you all for reading, I really appreciate it!

Blogmas day 14: Makeup of the Day

at December 14, 2015 0 comments
Today I woke up and decided that I wanted to wear makeup! This doesn't usually happen on college days - let alone on Mondays... So I decided to embrace it and get out my makeup bag!

In the mornings, I am a mess so I didn't bother with sorting my face out, I just wanted to do a really pretty eye look.

I used Maybelline Colour Tattoo by Eye Studio in the shade 'pink-gold' all over my eyelid up to where my crease just ends. I then used a matte brown shade from The Nudes palette to add some depth to my eyes. To finish the look off, I used the Lash Sensational also by Maybelline. 

To create this look, I used my finger for the all over lid shade - simply because it's a cream eye shadow and therefore a little bit easier to apply. To blend everything together, I used my Real Techniques eye brush. 

That's all for today, thank you all for reading. I really appreciate it!

Winter Essentials 2015 (Blogmas Day 12)

at December 12, 2015 0 comments

It's now December - in case you weren't aware - and winter is well and truly here. That means for me that it's time to make some changes in terms of beauty and accessories. 

First of all, like many of us, my lips get very dry and my new go to lip balm is the Burt's Bees 'beeswax lip balm'. I bought this from Amazon and it was very very cheap! I did try and buy the tube version but they were classified as 'add-on items', which was very frustrating but maybe next time. I usually apply this at night time and before I put on a matte lipstick. I'm not sure about the other flavours and scents but with this particular one, it makes your lips tingle as if you've been eating something minty!

This time of year I am all about dark vampy lipstick! My favourite one at the moment is Topshop's 'suspected'. Apart from the fact that this lipstick is the WORST to apply, I really like colour and I think it's incredibly longwearing. I do own two other lipsticks from Topshop, but this one is most definitely my favourite. I don't think I'll wear this on Christmas day - but I'll most likely be applying this at least once during the festive season. 

Along with dark lips, I also like simple make-up looks. Recently I bought Colour Tattoo by Eye Studio. I wear this all over my eye-lid and then put a matte shade in the crease and voila! I'm done!

That's all for today, I hope you enjoyed today's post. Apologies for not being able to keep up with Blogmas, this month has been crazy busy at college and I decided to put that as a priority. After Wednesday, daily posts will most likely resume!

Thank you all reading, I really appreciate it,

Blogmas Day 2: Christmas Jumpers!

at December 02, 2015 0 comments
Christmas related clothing are one of my favourite types of fashion simply because I think they look absolutely ridiculous! I love to see people wearing Christmas jumpers because they look so happy with themselves and their quirky outfit. 

Now, I do have a confession... I have never owned - or even wore - a Christmas jumper but this year I want to change that! I want to buy the cringiest, most ridiculous Christmas jumper and wear it on Christmas day!

...Well we haven't heard that one before.

How incredibly punny... (I'm funny, okay?!)

I thought that this one was just mean!

I have noticed a theme this year with having the word 'Elfie' on your jumper this year! However, I felt these two were most definitely my favourites. I especially like the hashtag! Although, I did think that we were over having hashtags on clothing... But I guess I was wrong.

I don't think I want to talk about this one. 

Anyway that's it for today! Thank you all for reading, I really appreciate it,

Blogmas Day 1: Christmas Wish List

at December 01, 2015 0 comments

So it's finally December (what the hell???) and that means it's almost Christmas! Although my mother has been asking what I want since September... I think I finally know. 

When I was younger I heard that as you grow up, you'll no longer get the gifts that you want... but much rather the things you need! However, I am going to change that this year! 

  1. Moleskin Notebooks! (Seriously these are the cutest notebooks in the world!)
  2. Expensive makeup (I'm not going to get this, I know that.)
  3. More flannels! (Take a wild guess.)
  4. New shoes! (Okay, so I do need these...)
  5. Lots of books!
So that's about it! I don't expect to get everything I ask for because I think that's ever so slightly unreasonable.

I'm very sorry for the short post, I never really know what to say in these wish list posts but I'm sure I'll get there one day!

Thank you all for reading, I really appreciate it,
