Hello my beautiful readers (if there's even anyone reading this!) I am so sorry for the lack of "blog" posts. Everything seems to revolve around a Youtube video on here nowadays and I apologise but sometimes I feel it's better to visualise a certain topic or idea rather than describe it in detail through words. 

Lately I've felt much more drawn to making videos rather than putting fingers to keys. I'm sure you can agree that not only is this frustrating for me but also to anybody who enjoys reading my blog! I did mention in the last post that I have some blog ideas that I'm working on and they're still being worked on. I just happen to be working at the pace of a snail...

Sorry, again! But to (hopefully) make it up to you, here is my newest haul video which includes a tiny life update at the very end. 

This video has everything from Primark to Disney so something for everyone! I really hope you enjoy the video and if you do then leave me a comment telling me just that!

Thanks a lot for sticking with me and holding out for a real blog some time soon. I have a million ideas, it's just a case of being able to find the time to sit down and put 100% into my writing. 

Much love and other things xo

Feeling uninspired...

Hello lovely readers! 

I'm aware lately I haven't done many "blog posts" and that's simply due to the fact I've felt uninspired and unmotivated to think creatively enough to actually form a coherent sentence! I suppose all bloggers hit a brick wall every now and again so I'm not too concerned for the time being. 

I've found that in times when I lack inspiration, it's best to focus on things that have inspired me in the past. So this week I went as far back as my childhood and decided to make a Youtube video about something that really had an effect on me in my younger years.

Harry Potter!

I am a fanatic of all things Harry Potter and this video certainly does reveal that.

If you watch it and you like Harry Potter as much as me then you should do the tag yourself. If you're not into Youtube then answer the questions on your blog and link me to your post as I'd love to read them all.

Many thanks if you've read/watched this - it means a lot to me!

I promise I've got blog posts ready to post in the next few days so thanks for sticking with me through this dry spell.

Review: Barry M - Touch of Magic Lip Paint

Hi there lovely readers! So today I went on a bit of a spending spree in Superdrug (I'll be doing a collective haul post at the beginning of August no doubt!) and I decided to do a little review of the Barry M Touch of Magic Lip Paint which I've worn today for the first time!

I first came across this lipstick last year when my friend pulled it out of her handbag on a night out and everyone sort of looked at her like "um, excuse me, that's GREEN you're putting on!" But then of course you see it MAGICALLY turns to a gorgeous pink colour! O.M.G. 

Now I'm a sucker for anything like this. Mood rings, mugs that change colour depending on the liquid temperature etc. you name it, I love it! And it totally helps that my favourite colour is green. 

The Barry M Lip Paint itself is so moisturising even though it's not part of their Ultra Moisturising collection. It's a waterproof formula consisting of aloe vera which states that it lasts up to 8 hours, which for me is great as I found I didn't need to reapply whilst out and about. It's really more of a stain than a lipstick! 

And if you're anything like me and you want to know why on earth it magically goes from green to pink - apparently the lip paint reacts to the alkali level of your lips! Bit of a science lesson for you there, ladies ;) 

As you can see by the swatch on my hand, it appears at first in a light pink colour. However when applied to the lips it varies from a light pink to even a deep fuchsia colour. I really enjoy the fact that it will colour differently depending on each individual. It guarantees an individual look for each user!

I feel it's a really unique product and a complete bargain at just £4.49 on Barry M's website here or you can buy in store from Superdrug or Boots for the same price.

Please leave comments with which lip products you've been favouring as I'd love to check them out.

Vintage treats!

Hi there! I hope all you lovely readers are enjoying this marvellous weather we're having. It really does put you in a cheery old mood doesn't it? Well when you're not too busy sweating to death... Anyway! Moving on!

Yesterday I spent the day in the sunshine with my Mum at a very adorable little village in the country where they have vintage shops galore. Literally about three within 10 feet of each other! I am a sucker for all things ornate and old fashioned - hence why my flat is full of clutter, but at least it looks pretty!

I decided to snap a few pictures in one of the stores we went into which had laid out an entire room entitled, very wittily, 'The Vintage Room'. 

It's all so adorable! Please comment if you share my enthusiasm for all things vintage, or if you prefer modern decor then tell me why! Thanks so much for reading.

Enjoying the little things

Hi there! Just recently I've really been enjoying the little things life has to offer. We all sit and fantasise about a dream holiday in an exotic location or achieving a slightly difficult goal we've set for ourselves; but from time to time it's important to just take a second to see what's right in front of us. 

I know that personally I'm very guilty of not living in the moment and taking life for granted. There are probably days that have passed me by and I haven't appreciated how special they were until they were already long gone. Or I've spent days feeling frustrated because I'm convinced I haven't achieved my full potential yet. But I've realised that in life it's so important to take a moment to realise what we have achieved. And it's okay to be proud of yourself!

For instance, I planted these seeds at my Mum's house back in Autumn and we were convinced they were never going to bloom. I visited the other day and couldn't believe how beautiful they look now! 

This is something I can be proud of. I planted the seeds and now I've created something so beautiful which my Mum tells me makes her smile every time she sees them outside of her home. That in itself is something to be proud of!

So next time you're feeling a bit glum and unfulfilled; take a deep breath and look back on your achievements. Whether that's climbing a mountain, getting past a level on candy crush saga or passing a really hard Math test back in your school days; who cares? We all have our own personal achievements, you've just got to look a little deeper sometimes and appreciate yourself. You're wonderful, so start believing it!

Much love and other things xo
