The Weekend Post | Week 5

Hello lovelies!
And a happy Sunday to you's all.

Long time, no speak! How are you's all doing?
So, I decided to have a little break from blogging for a week or two and to be honest, now I am keener than ever to start back again!

So, the last weekend post I left you's with, I was trying to decide what career path I was wanting to go down. Well, I've decided (Finally!) and I am beginning to build the path of my future. It's quite refreshing!

This week I've also been spending a lot of time with my family and I have to say, I've loved it. Sometimes we get so caught up in life, we forget to sit down with old friends/family and have a chat! I've really loved catching up with distant relatives! The one quote that stuck with me this week was one I instagrammed (LINK! *Cough Cough*).

The quote was "You have as many hours in the day as Beyonce!" and as Bey is one of my greatest idols, It really make my think that I need to constantly push myself to work harder, even if I think I'm giving 100%, someone is giving 110% and I want to prove to myself, also!

SO, goal time!

This week, I'm going to continue my career plans, for one.
Also, I'm going to start setting aside 5 minutes in the morning to think a few positive things. Start the day off on the right foot!

What are your little challenges?

The Weekend Post | Week 4

Hello and happy Sunday my lovelies!
It's another installation of the Weekend Post!

This week has been a funny one. It's been one with a lot of mixed emotions. I've been deciding what I want to do with the rest on my life and with that comes a lot of responsibility.
 It's so difficult to say what you want to be when you're older, I know for me even now at 18, I still can't decide! I have so many different options and I have to make that decision on my own, which is scary!

The one thing I've had to remind myself is, well, this:

A lot of the time, we aspire to be as successful as someone else, either in the media or in our personal lives, and that's great but I think we tend to forget the struggle a person has gone through to get there. I know that whatever career I choose that it will take a lot of time, determination and strength but I am ready and cannot wait to see what the future has in store for me!

So, challenge's..

I want to decide what I want to do as a career.
I want to put myself out more and be outgoing this week.

Let me know what your little challenges are for this week!

Building the foundations..

Hello lovelies,

Today I thought that I'd start a new series on here.
We already have the Weekend post which from now on will be going up every Sunday!
But today I thought I'd start a new series in which I talk you through my favourite products for everyday. So, I thought I'd start of with Foundation!

So, if you are subscribed to me on YouTube (Link Here! Wink Wink, Nudge nudge!) then you'll know that I change my foundation like the weather! I love so many foundations and it honestly depends on how my skin is that day, as it can be very temperamental! So, I choose 2 because, well..I couldn't choose between them!

So, the first foundation that I love is MAC's Studio Fix Fluid. I got this not so long ago and I love it because it's fairly similar to MAC's Studio Sculpt however, it's less of a gel formula and it's not as heavy coverage. However, longevity is just the same! I love it for days when my skin is misbehaving and nothing looks right, I pop this on and I instantly feel that my skin looks 100 times better. I'm in shade NW15, which is perfect for me as I have quite a lot of natural redness in my skin which this cancels out.

MAC's Viva Glam Nicki | Review

Hello lovelies,
Happy Friday! Today is going to be another review! Seeing a pattern here on Fridays? ;)

Recently, MAC deicded to collaborate with Nicki Minaj on a collection. I had seen this around the Beauty blogosphere/YouTube land and had wanted to try it so, when in Rome!

When I went to MAC, I hadn't actually planned to get this lipstick. I couldn't decide between it and MAC's 'Candy Yum Yum', another famous lippy, but I thought it was a little too bright for me, so opted for the safer option!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month | Get Involved

Hello lovelies, 
Today is a double blogpost from me!

It's a slightly different one from normal though. As many of you's may already know, this month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and in honour of that Nails inc. have started a campaign to raise money and awareness both at the same time!

The campaign is known as, 'Spot the Pinkie' which basically means that you paint your pinkie pink! It's simple! Nails inc. have collaborated with Poppy Delevingne and Matthew Williamson to bring out 2 limited edition nail polishes in which, for every bottle sold, £1 goes straight to the charity!

Poppy Delevingne Limited Edition: Available Here.
Matthew Williamson Limited Edition: Available Here.

Of course, if you can't get to a nails inc. counter, you can always paint your nails pink anyway to raise awareness!

I'm taking part! Are you?
