right, So you might be wondering why I haven’t posted in the past couple of weeks, And I’m not gunna lie I completely lost my blog mojo. I just became stuck in a rut and I just couldn’t get out. I’ll start from the beginning because at the moment I’m just rambling at you.
Back in August sometime, I changed my blog to my own domain. I had an opportunity that I thought would improve my blog, Make it look better and just make it more of a thing to be proud of. Which It did for a while, I love it and the way it looked however, Since moving from wordpress to your own domain, It means you don’t get any of the benefits of using a wordpress site. For example, If you have a wordpress site, you can tag all the related tags and your post will show up in those tags which obviously means more people are seeing your content. On my domain site, I could no longer do this. Which means I couldn’t speak to any of you, I couldn’t get any feedback on my site, It just didn’t really do much. A big part having a blog is connecting with new people and finding out other people’s opinions on things, With my new one I couldn’t do this. Don’t get me wrong, Blogs arent just about views and followers, I mean I feel very lucky to even have as many as I do, There are 700 of you lot now which in this day and age probably doesn’t seem alot, But to me it’s incredible. So to go from a blog that had lots of interaction to nothing was terrible. I just didn’t want to post, It didnt feel right. So I decided to change it back to my wordpress one. I don’t need no fancy blog, At the end of the day it’s here from me to post what I feel like posting, Not to look pretty. I mean yeah it’s a bonus but does it really mean anything? Only problem is, I’ve lost all of my content I have been posting over the past couple of months. I am going to try to get it back and post my favourites if I can but atleast I can get back to enjoying my blog and thats the main thing. So excited to get back into it properly.
I’m on instagram! My new account will be dedicated too all things beauty, with a spinkle of my life in there. And maybe some shoes chucked in too…. So check it out if your interested, as you can see i’m a little lonely over there at the moment…
Ooo another exciting thing.. I’m now going to be posting 4 days a week. Since starting my blog ive been posting 3 days a week to find my feet. But I am absolutley loving posting and seeing all the lovely responses, so i’m now going to be posting, mondays, wednesdays, saturdays and sundays 🙂
So I recently picked up this new top from Newlook. I was after something abit more ‘Jazzy’ shall I say, Then just your bog standard strap tops. I’m forever wearing basic, Plain tops, ‘Cause lets face it, It’s easy. I wanted to pick up something a little different to what I normally pick up. Now I know, It is khaki, Which is pretty much 90% of my wardrobe, BUT, all of the other colours were really not me. There was a bright pink and a salmon coloured one, and I don’t do pink. So yeah, This was the only option, It had to be done.
I must say though, I really love it! I think its quite flattering around the chest area. It isn’t too low like some lace up tops that I really can’t pull off because unfortunately, I am lacking the chest department. But I love how this top looks. I know it isn’t exactly out there, But I am getting there. I used to be quite out going with fashion when I was abit younger, But nowadays I seem to always pickup the same stuff. Plain tops, Black ripped jeans and trainers. I guess it’s because I’m worried that it won’t look right on me or I would look out of place. But I am determined to get my fashion Mojo back and come up with some different outfits soon, Fingers crossed.
It’s that time of the month again, monthly favourites. (Bit late this month, But been sooooo busy recently!) I don’t have many this month, I have been very busy with other boring life things so I have just been using the same old stuff. Although there were a few things that I have rekindled my love for, so without further a do i ‘spose….
MAYBELINE DREAM VELVET MATTE FOUNDATION
I love this foundation! It is my new daily foundation that is lightweight but still has fairly good coverage. I have found myself reaching for it every single day this month. I really think it’s a strong contender for my favourite all time foundation.
ILLAMASQUA LIPSTICK IN NAKED
I’ve had this lipstick for a long time now, although kinda put it to one side and forgot about it. But recently I dusted it down and decided to give it ago. I’m so glad I did as I haven’t put it back in the draw since. It just a perfect browny nude that is so moisturising and creamy!
NEW FCUK GLASSES
So, If you didnt already know, My eye sight is pretty awful. I usually wear contacts every day, But after a recent checkup, I decided to pick some glasses and wear them more often. So I picked up these FCUK ones mainly because my boyfriend actually had an opinion on them, So they must of been good. I love them too though!
NEWLOOK DENIM JACKET
Another thing I haven’t taken off this month. I’ve warn it every day and think I will forever! The weather is actually picking up here in england, You still have to wear a coat but nothing to big and heavy. So this has been perfect!
Another pair of glasses. This time sunglasses. I was in need of some sunglasses. The suns decided to make a unexpected appearance in the UK so I picked these up from Newlook. The shape is prefect, It suits my face well and they are super comfy to wear.
So, erm, yeah, Still trying to save money, But this is mainly home stuff soooo I guess its okay as I would only be buying them when I do eventually move out. I decided to go to a local shopping centre today as me and my boyfriend had the day off work. The main reason I went is because I wanted to go to Homesence, so i thought, why not pop to boots aswell? And then I got carried away and went to TIGER too..My Bad.
The first thing I picked up was some tea light holders from TIGER. They’re very me. I don’t normally go for colour, and I also like quite simple things. I think they would look lovely either side of a fireplace. They were an absolute bargain at £2 each so I picked up 2. I also picked up a black rounded edge photo frame, again, Black, No surprises there.This was only £1 so I couldn’t resist. I love the simplistic look of it, I think I might actually keep the picture it comes with in there as its very different looking, and I love that.
The next thing I picked up was a candle from homesence, It smells amazing, But I’m not gunna lie, I did get it for it’s looks. Very shallow, I know. Although It think It would look great on a coffee table.
And the last two things, I didn’t really need, But I decided to pick ‘um up anyway! I picked up the Seventeen Define and Conquer Contour Kit, I’ve seen alot of beauty bloggers rave about this and have been meaning to pick It up for ages. Most contour kits come with highlights nowadays that don’t really do anything, But the highlight powder in this kit is matte, So you can use it as a powder to set your make-up but still illuminate the places you want to.
Last of all, I picked up the New Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipstick. I’m not sure of the shade name, Although, Its the lightest shade in the collection. A Nice Warm, Browny Nude which Is my go to lip colour. Maybe a review coming up soon once I’ve tried it out.
So I have a very small haul for you today, When I say small, I mean 4 products in total. So this ones gunna be a short one cus’ i wanna get back to scoffing my face with Easter Eggs.
Anyway, First things first, I picked up my trusty Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in 2 Cool Medium. I won’t go into too much detail about this as I’m sure you’ve heard every beauty blogger and their dog raves about this. But I can see why, Its cheap and cheerful, But still better than most high end concealers. I’ve probably got through about 20 Tubes of this and still go back for more.
I originally went to boots to have a gander at the Miss Sporty Section. I’ve seen alot of beauty bloggers rave about there liquid concealer, But unfortunately its sold out, Same in superdrug so I was abit gutted, But I did pick up there Insta Glow Blusher In Luminous Beige. As you’ve probably guessed from the name, It’s a warm Beige colour with flecks of glitter running through it, It looks gorgeoussss! Plus it’s only £2.99 so can’t go wrong!
The next two things I didn’t really plan on getting. It just kinda happened. I picked up the Neutrogena Oil Free Moisteriser and CC Cream in Light. I really like the look of both of these as they are oil free. As a gal with oily skin, I am always after a good oil free moisteriser so fingers crossed its good. I am also looking foward to trying the Oil Free CC cream. I think it would be ideal for work days as its something that i can just shove on with fingers and it will be light in coverage. we’ll see ay!
