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”

How to Balance Work Life / Blogging

Check out this amazing post from Lashes, Love and Lifestyle – it was a much needed read for me, my favourite tip from her is taking photos at the same time!

Lashes, Love and Lifestyle

When I first started my blog I had 3 months off of school, so I didn’t have to worry about a work / blog balance. However in September I started a full time job which took up a lot of my time, for a few months I struggled to stay on top of my blog and stay active with other bloggers. 6 months later I’ve finally got that work / blog balance, and sometimes I still stress about not getting a post done, but there’s always time to get it done. So in today’s post I’m going to be sharing with you how I work full time, yet still run this blog.

Best hashtags for makeup Instagram posts

Check out this fantastic posy by Shaddows! Although I haven’t been that huge on Instagram lately, this post will be super helpful when I get back to posting properly.

Shaddows

Hashtags make a really big difference to the engagement you receive on posts; when a lot of work has gone into creating a makeup look, likes and comments are ideal.

More popular hashtags are seen by more people but drown very quickly as new posts are published with the same hashtag. Posts with less popular hashtags will remain at the top of the hashtag feed for longer, therefore, seen by a smaller amount of people over a longer period of time. It is probably a good idea to use a mixture of these hashtags.

Below are the hashtags that get lots of engagement. Be careful to only use up to 30 hashtags or the whole caption will be deleted when the picture is posted. Also, try not to over use the same hashtags or you risk being shaddowbanned where your pictures do not show up on any hashtag feeds at…

WHY I QUIT TWITTER

Happy Sunday Cheeleaders, I hope 2018 has been kind to you so far. It feels like it has been ages since I wrote a proper post as I was getting in to the routine of posting every day sometimes twice in one day.

For me, this year I want change. In terms of the blog I am looking to blog better, more effectively and I read something interesting which I can’t find the link to share with you all but basically it was saying choose one or two social media platforms and focus on them. Reading this came at the right time because I was getting quite bored with social media, I was spending ages on them and didn’t feel like I was getting much back out of them.  Continue reading “WHY I QUIT TWITTER”

Day 85- Signs of the Zodiac Nails!

How cool are these nails, have you spotted your zodiac sign? I love every year when we are in Capricorn season as it feels like my time to shine!

Signs of the Zodiac Nails!

I don’t actually believe in horoscopes and star signs but for some reason I’ve always loved the idea of them. There’s something quite special about having something ‘personal’ (I mean it’s not really) for when you were born. I don’t know about you but I always feel sort of proud of my own star sign!

I’m a Taurus (woo! Shout out to my fellow Taurus people!) so I decided to do a quick google of typical Taurus traits and the same things kept coming up-

Dominant, observant, strong and artistic

I’d say observant and artistic are probably true but not so sure about dominant and strong. I’m your pretty classic introvert and if we’re talking physical strength I genuinely struggle to pick up a water jug at the kitchen table…

What about you? Do your star sign’s traits match your personality?
