My 2017 timeline

appreciation post, my inspiration, my life, New year

Well it was a tough start to the year in terms of dreams and goals. Me and my partner struggled to settled down in our roles of university and apprenticeship. 

We hated where we were and couldn’t see a positive end. Both worrying and teary nights, motivating ourselves to keep going and hoping things got better. 

They did! Things got better as they do, I found my interests and my ideal goals for where I want to be and for when I get out of university. My partner settled into the work place and is flying through his job! 

We had our first holiday together in Spain and this is where I become serious about fashion blogging and found workplacement with a number one global online magazine, as a style blogger. 

I discovered my strengths from journalism and what I enjoyed, thus being editing and wanting to go into video production. I found out that my goal was to progress into creative director in both documentaries (on the environment) and in fashion magazines. 

I lost a lot of friends through out the year. Randomly not speaking not seeing eachother for months, distancing because life moves on or the simple fact that people are rude. That’s fine because you realise your so much better off. 

I got upset and chased after people but realising who was there all along, made me feel like a brand new person. 

The people who have always been there and always supported me through all my achievements have been my loved ones! 

I am so greatful for a happy and healthy family and that this year we were all safe. That’s all I wish for in the new year. 

My resolutions are

To be more calm 

To loose a stone and to fit into a definite size 8.  

To find great work experience and to pass with a good grade in my second year. 

To pronounce my T’ s properly for broadcast. This seriously going to be the hardest one!!!

Here are my favourite moments

Work I produced this year

MY 20TH!

Lost some work pals this year but gained a bunch load which is great because it started to get lonely when people started to leave.

I’m ending the new year on a high note and I am feeling very content. I’m happy and lucky and healthy that’s all a girl can ask for and the same for my loved ones❤ Roll on 2018 and bring on Thailand with my man❤ AHHH elephants❤ 

HAPPY NEW YEAR💋

REAL lips for the countdown kiss!

appreciation post, Beauty review, Beauty tutorial, Birthday gift, gift, Shopping bag, Shopping spree, Style

It’s new years eve eve and what better blog post to do than a quick review and tutorial on the REAL Technique limmited edition lip kit, ready for your 12pm kiss!

I got this pretty kit for my birthday, the handy case tube is something on its own. It has a little mirror at the end of the case for on the move touch ups, so if your struggling to get to the girls bathroom, as new years is crazy, you’ll have no struggles!

The kit comes with four brushes, to help you line, texturise, colour and exfoliate/plump your lips. The kit was made from the creators, Sam and Nic, who are infact sisters. Well thanks Sam and Nic because your my lip savour. For ages I was using sharp ends to exfoliate and plump my lips but now I have these beauties.

To check out how they worked for me follow my pics below:

My lips before I used the flat smoothing brush.

When using this smoothing brush, its best to use vaseline or anything oily on the lips to help glide the brush. The hairs on the brush are quiet tough and would hurt very much on dry lips.

A Few minutes later…

Then the lip brush to colour in my Ted Baker nude créme lipstick.

Next is the liner to perfect the outline of my lips.

And then to wipe away over lineing and to shadow the cupids bow with highlight.

This is how my lips looked after…

My overall view is beyond positive. I have received the gift of all gifts for my lips. Winter can be harsh so always take care of your pout and make sure to exfoliate the dead and dry skin with lots of Vaseline. The flat smooth brush is my favourite by far as it’s replaced anything pointy in my room to compensate as a tool for massaging my lips. The brushes are smooth and they glide lovely onto the lips! A perfect gift for the perfect kiss.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE AND ALL MY FANTASTIC FOLLOWERS. Thanks for reading this year and keep me posted on your own posts👍

Power in style 

my inspiration, Shopping bag, Shopping spree, Style

I don’t know if it’s because I have been binge watching That 70’s show or my hobby of scrolling through Instagram, subconsciously finding styles from the 70’s, but I became aware of my interest after unknowingly piecing this outfit together and figuring out that, yes, perhaps I have become a little obsessed with the 70’s inspired look. Also, the Fashion blogger, Lucy Williams’s wardrobe definitely plays a part in my copy cat style.
My sweet partner bought me this very cute Power T. I love the yellow print and bold typography. It makes for a plain white T and to which is very colloquial to the 70’s.

My love for the fur coat is real and it has been a long time coming. Where have they been? It’s been a while for its come back and so I guess it’s bye-bye to my last year’s trench coat and hello to my furry friend. Let’s be clear this is fake fur! This coat goes well with high end styles (obviously because its known for being luxurious) and the relaxed look. Heck, chuck on a pair of Adidas originals and call me a pro.

Last but for sure not least, my burgundy patent stretch sock boots. They go with just about everything and I love them hidden underneath a good pair of three quarter length mom jeans. I’m on the hunt for a more flared three quarter length trousers. Preferably black and not mom jeans so if you have any suggestions please feel free to comment.

The accessories I would wear would be cat sunglasses for a cold sunny day. To keep that chic look. Perhaps a nice vintage ring. Keep it simple, the outfit is already a statement.
