HAUL | Spring makeup additions

I can’t help but feel sad, but this time last week I was halfway through the Easter weekend with my boyfriend in Bath… But the highlight is that there are less than 8 weeks until our holiday now so that gives us something to look forward to.

Giving my makeup bag a spring update was long overdue, so I went on a mini shopping haul. There was nothing that I had run out of so these were just things that I had either wanted to try out for a long time or new to me. Continue reading “HAUL | Spring makeup additions”

EXPERIENCE | Getting toric contact lenses

It’s Sunday night Cheeleaders and here is a new post! Whilst this isn’t a review and potentially not exactly life changing, I wanted to share my contact lens experience with you because I have Astigmatism meaning that I don’t have the vast choice of lenses compared to normal contact lens wearers.

Four Apps You NEED As A Blogger

Check out this really useful post by the wonderful Currently Lately – I will definitely be downloading Canva!

Currently, Lately

Hello, hello!

Happy Sunday to you all.

I hope things have been going well for you. As I’m sitting down to write this post, it’s currently cold and miserable outside. I had actually been planning to do an OOTD today, but when I looked outside and saw the weather conditions (windy, snowy, generally gross), I ultimately decided against it. I cannot tell you how ready I am for winter to be OVER.

Anyway, to pick myself up and out of this winter slump, I thought I would write a post on a more upbeat topic: apps I love.

As a blogger, I’ve discovered that having certain apps at my disposal has made my life a whole lot easier. That being said, today I want to share a few of my top ones.

These apps are pretty popular in the blogosphere. But I figure if you’re new, maybe you haven’t heard…

I don’t think you ever appreciate good health until you are ill and you think ‘DAMN why did I take it for granted?!’ So yeah I am ill, I have been feeling blehhhhhhh since Friday evening, hence why I have been ultra quiet on my blog and social media. But I am going to take the time to whilst I am sat on the sofa feeling sorry for myself watching a Stacey Dooley documentary, to write some blog posts for the next few days.

Everyone knows by now, from how much I complain on here and Instagram, how I have  MEGA love-hate deal with my photos. I get BORED V quickly and I just feel so crap about the way they look. My Instagram algorithm is pretty bad, but I don’t have the time to spend on it to improve it… if only the summer could come around quicker so…

22 goals

I really need to get some more scheduled drafts out, there is so much that I need and want to post about that I am seriously starting to back up, you may have already seen my 22 post all about my birthday and seen that I already have some blog related goals that I haven’t even started on and I have added to the problems already with another 2000 photos and several new lipsticks.

I am not a huge resolution person, my birthday is too early in the new year to stick to a diet and I am too excited for it to stick to anything religiously, so I set myself goals for the new year of age ahead as the year is boring after the holiday season and my birthday.

This year I am going to either be adventurous or stupid and set myself 22.. god help me.

  1. To be more determined
  2. Find solutions to problems
  3. Follow through on goals
  4. To not give up so easily
  5. Stress less
  6. Have a positive outlook for the future
  7. Be more jolly and positive (swear this is the same as #6)
  8. De-clutter everything
  9. Eat better (breakfast crisps are great when you are 18)
  10. Have a proper skincare routine and stick to it
  11. Take up a new hobby
  12. Continue learning Turkish (I can manage an extremely basic conversation now)
  13. Save £1000
  14. Go one month (minimum) without buying new makeup, this will probably be the month Huda or Urban Decay release something
  15. Open up a bit more
  16. Learn something new and actually take a course in it
  17. Give my wardrobe a diet
  18. Engage more with the blogging community
  19. Try and wear less makeup
  20. Find a way to help others more
  21. Learn to cook from more recipes
  22. Actually commit to this list and report back in a years time!

The first seven goals were input from my boyfriend, which is kind of sad – he is definitely the bright and cheery to my miserable and dark yang!

I really hope I can stick to these and then reflect back on them and see how much I have done in a year. It is always a good idea to write down your goals and objectives so that you are more committed to them and they hold a greater meaning to you.

Do you set yourself goals for your new year of age ahead? Let me know in the comments below!

Love and (high)light✌
