Pink hair!

Welll helloooo there!

I’ve noticed I’ve had a few new followers lately, so hey guys! But this also made me conscious¬†of the fact that I really need to post more instead of being a lazy so and so!

So, I thought I would share a few plans with you, mainly the plans of my hair, cause..you know, it’s important information.

As you may guess from the title, I am going to be dying my hair pink! Pastel pink to be precise! However, this could end up going extremely terribly and with my track record of hair, it probably will.

So, I guess I’m looking for a bit of advice. What’s best to use? What method worked best for you? Please, please share your thoughts as I really don’t want to end up with orange hair or have it all fall out, cause that could happen…(definitely not being over-dramatic there…).

So..yeah, share your thoughts and advise and I will love you forever- promise!

(I’ve added a photo of me now…as some of you may not even know that I now have blonde hair…it’s been THAT long!)

A good start to 2014

Okay, I hold my hands up and admit that I haven’t exactly kept to what I said and post more on here. However, in all honesty, it’s been really nice to take a break from writing and actually start getting out and about.

This year alone (even if we are only in January) has been more eventful than most of last year. I’ve been to the beach twice in two weeks, I’ve flown a kite and I’ve even spent the night in the back of a transit van (trust me, it’s not as dodgy as it sounds I promise!).

I’m beginning to become more of a “yes” person and it’s really, really fun. It helps that I have a boyfriend who encourages me and gives me the confidence to try new things. We’re even planning to go to Paris together in March and I couldn’t be more excited! Mainly for the croissants and what not, but I’m sure the eiffel tower will be a treat too!

I have even found my new love in the form of a foundation, I won’t give too much away just yet, but a full review will be posted soon – it’s a bloody goodun!

Overall, it’s been a good start to the year. How about you guys?

My thoughts on being a makeup enthusiast..

When people ask what my hobby is, I never really know what to respond with. I have things that interest me of course, but not a real “active” hobby as such.

I guess my hobby is makeup, I am a beauty product enthusiast! I spend most my money on new beauty purchases and I can spend hours watching makeup tutorials on YouTube. However, I always seem to feel a bit embarrassed announcing that makeup is my “hobby”. A lot of people’s perception of people who love makeup is often “fake”, “vain” or “bimbo”; I know that I am none of those things, not at all, however I always feel a bit reluctant to go into detail about my passion due to people assuming that this makes you a little…unintelligent?

In fact, the reason I like makeup isn’t just because it’s pretty, it’s the fact that you can do so many things with it. You can unleash your artistic side and change your look depending on your mood. It also takes skill to be able to apply makeup in a flawless and professional way…it’s not just a case of slapping it on your face and your done (although in some people’s case it may be!).

In fact, it takes intelligence to know what goes where, what looks best on who and which colours will suit your complexion. So, in reality I shouldn’t be embarrassed to announce to people that my hobby is makeup. It’s something that interests me and that’s all that matters!

Do any of you ever feel the same? Do you feel a bit reluctant to let the “real” people in your life know about your beauty blog or the fact that you spend most your wages on the stuff?

That’s my thoughts for the day anyway….let me know what you guys feel on the topic?

 

A new chapter..

I really am getting useless at this blogging thing aren’t I? After my house move, things have been a little bit hectic, in-fact so hectic that I kind of lost my passion for writing about makeup – shocker I know!

I figured that if I wasn’t enjoying writing, then I shouldn’t. There is nothing worse than reading a half-arsed post when you can tell there is no genuine passion or flare behind the writing. So, I decided to stop!

I actually stopped buying makeup too; I began to look at my collection and really think about how much money I had spent on it all – the answer was a lot. A lot more than I could actually afford and I began to realise that there are a lot more important things out there than buying makeup (gasp!).

I still love makeup, don’t get me wrong! But, since moving house, a lot has been put into perspective. I don’t want to stop writing on this blog all together and I would love to continue blabbing on about my favourite eyeshadows, but I would also like to include a lot more lifestyle related posts and write about other things that inspire or excite me.

I have lots to tell you guys, some of it very exciting to me…so…keep your eyes peeled for my up-coming posts!

I’ve missed you guys!

Bedroom Tour – The Video!

Hello lovelies,

As you may already know, I moved into my new home on Saturday. Seeing as I now have my bedroom looking how I want it to, I thought I should probably do a bedroom tour!

I tried to be as creative as I could with this video without it being boring, so I hope you enjoy!
