kylie-jenner-kyshadow-burgundy-1170x780_530x
The burgundy eyeshadow palette by Kylie Jenner has really become a popular item of the Kylie collection. It is a beautiful palette containing beautiful colours, however, is the price of $42.00 USD. I have found a dupe of this, may not be the exact same but contains most of the colours and is super cheap!

Lottie London
This is the ‘Lottie London, The Rusts’ palette that I had found in a beauty store (Superdrug, UK). I had been looking for a nice orange/brown colour for so long until I found this palette! I was so excited so I had to buy it and must I say the pigment is so good and it is so similar to the ‘Kylie Burgundy Palette’. I am honestly in love and thought I should recommend it to you guys! The best thing is that the price is only, £9.95!!! You can find this palette on:  https://lottie.london/collections/eye/products/shadow-swatch-the-nudes-1

I’ve just GRADUATED!

IMG_6765

Sorry guys, the reason why I haven’t been posting is that I had spent time on preparing for my graduation! Yes, I’ve graduated from University in Major Psychology and Criminology and I couldn’t be happier! I had spent four years in University due to changes of one course that I didn’t like in the first year (English and Media) which I had then made a choice of choosing Psychology and Criminology and majored in the course I loved. It is such a happy moment when you graduated, honestly. “Everything seems impossible at first until it is done”-Nelson Mandela. Most of you I believe will be graduating this summer and I bet you can’t wait! The only downfall is that you’ll be leaving such an amazing environment and your little freedom that you had will be gone (if you’re moving back home) but nothing competes with the recognition of your hard work!

 

‘The Girl on the Train’

Book by Paula Hawkins

Who has read ‘The Girl on the Train’ by Paula Hawkins?! I am currently reading this book and I thought that I MUST do a review on it already. Yes, already even though I am only on page 120 but this book has caught my attention so quickly, I am shocked! Reading the reviews of this book were so positive even Stephen King had mentioned, “it had kept me up most of the night”. I just thought everyone has their own opinions and it can’t be that interesting probably just another story. But I was wrong, this book even kept me awake, as it is so unpredictable and interesting.

The book is about a woman who gets on the train to London every day for “work” and she always goes past these houses that she always looks into. She sees this couple who she believes is “the perfect couple” but one day what does she see?!’

The Girl on the Train’ has also been created into a movie now, so if you haven’t seen it, I suggest you read the book first, as it is so worth it!

The experience of ‘getting over someone’.

Love is the most amazing and heartbreaking thing ever. Heartbreaks are the worst and once you truly experience it, you don’t even want to wish it on your worst enemy. So many people go throughs heartbreaks and sometimes it seems impossible to get over. Everyone has their own little way of dealing with sadness but if you seriously don’t know what to do, here’s my little experience.
I had my first boyfriend 3 years ago. He was the boy I wanted to date since the first day I spoke to him. I didn’t think it would ever happen until one day it did, we got together and life was just like those romantic movies. But slowly as time passed, things started to turn evil and it made me sad because I could see I was losing someone important to me. As presumed he broke up with me, I was truly broken. I became so upset and depressed that I didn’t even know what life meant anymore. You turn to friends and you find they’ll just tell you to “move on”, but no one understood that it wasn’t that easy, so I distanced myself from them. I became so bad that I went and joined myself to counselling sessions with a counsellor at my University. The honesty here is that I felt like these sessions didn’t work. I was told, “join our dance/sports society and don’t think about it.” I mean, okay that will help temporarily but what about at nights when all your deep thoughts come at once and you just lay there? Months and months went on, I mean it was my first heartbreak so it was difficult, I didn’t know where to go and who turn to, the person I wanted to turn to didn’t want to know me anymore. Things got so desperate in trying to become better, I googled all sorts of things but nothing could help. It took me a year and a half to get over this situation but slowly I discovered in what to do, so this is what I would like to share with you.

One key fact that you should always remember is that no one can ever talk you out of your feelings and heartbreak. Yes, they say talking about your feelings helps but not always; as people won’t understand your situation and you don’t want to be remembered as someone who was depressed over a heartbreak.

Next key fact is that sometimes it can turn to hurting yourself, as it keeps you distracted temporarily from your real pain. But scars remain and every time you look at them you will always remember the hurt and this will make you sad in the future when things are better.

What slowly helped me was being around people I loved (family, friends) just don’t talk about your situation and try and forget what you’re going through. Get distracted by activities and laughs. Tire yourself out, so that at nights you won’t have to think about anything because you’d be so tired that there is no time to sleep. Work out, think about working on your body and health and become an even better-looking person, so your ex can look and think “I messed up!” Pick up a new hobby, try being creative, do new things! I found writing helped a lot for me, turn your feelings into short poems or songs, write a journal even. Give someone else a chance, I didn’t want to speak to anyone else after him but if I did I feel I would have gotten over him quicker, as that someone else becomes a distraction which makes your ex fade out. Reading books also helped at nights, my mind went on different thoughts and journeys before I went to sleep. Just always try and keep yourself busy, especially in becoming a better person for yourself!

All these things helped me and I just wanted to share it because I know how difficult it can be, so if I can get through it anyone can. There is hope for all of us!

Drinks that help you to lose weight.

Everyone wants to lose weight and here are two tips on how to just by drinking liquids!

Summer is here and everyone is trying to be healthy right? So, since I’ve seen people working out and eating their salads, I decided to let you in on two secrets. Last summer I had started to drink lemon water with every meal and whenever I felt dehydrated. If you didn’t know lemon is an element that helps you lose weight, yes it’s a fact (google it)! So I combined lemons with water because what’s a drink more healthy than water?! In order to create this all you do is first get yourself an infuser water bottle these can be found online or in supermarkets. Then just slice the lemon into little pieces so it fits into the tube of the bottle. Add warm water, yes warm as it helps getting more of the juices out of the lemon to give you better results. Then put it in the fridge and leave to it get cold for a tastier refresher taste!

You don’t have to just use lemons, as you can add more stuff into your bottle! Experiment and try it out!

The next drink that helps you to lose weight is, Green Tea. Some of you may know this is not a secret, as green tea is known as one of the healthiest drinks out there.

How-to-Include-More-Green-Tea-in-Your-Diet

Green tea has a substance that boosts the metabolism, which burns the fat from your body. 2-3 cups of green tea everyday is benficial and can make a difference but to see a huge difference the more cups you drink a day the more of a result you will see.
I personally wasn’t a fan of green tea when I first tried it but I’ve realised the more you  drink it, the more you get used to it and now I love it, espcially knowing it is great for my body!

So, why not try these two methods or atleast one if you are trying to lose weight! Please leave a comment below to ask any questions or to tell me your results.

Make your eyes lighter with ‘honey’.

How-Is-Honey-Helpful-For-Eyes2
Honey is very beneficial to our health and skin in many ways but did you know it can make your eyes lighter? If you have brown eyes like mine that can often seem very dull and dark, now there is a possible solution to fix that. Last summer I had heard that eating a spoonful of honey in the morning and before bed can slowly make your eyes more of a lighter colour and this did seem to work slowly. However, reading on from this I had found that mixing honey with water and making it into an eye drop solution lightens the colour of your eye gradually. So, I decided to take the risk as I just wanted to experiment something and what’s a better way than trying to change the colour of your eyes? After a few days of trying it, I had realised that this method was actually working, I even tried to tell my friends but they thought I was crazy until they saw the results in my eyes (doesn’t make a huge difference but can see a lighter shade of brown).

If you would like to try this tip, just follow these instructions:

  1. Mix raw honey and warm water together. More water than honey is needed in order to make it a watery solution and safe, so make sure the liquid is transparent.
  2. Pour the liquid into an empty eye drop bottle (my bottle was just a previous brighten eyedrops bottle that I had purchased at a drug store in which I emptied and washed out).
  3. Shake the bottle once the liquid is poured into it, so it gives it a good mix.
  4. Leave overnight or a few hours so the liquid has cooled down and ready to use.
  5. Apply 2-3 drops in each eye, twice a day.

Follow these results and you should have lighter eyes in no time. If you are a bit cautious about applying honey in your eyes then you could always just have a spoonful of honey in the morning and before bed. If anyone has any questions or is trying it please comment below and tell me about your results.

Be ‘bold’ with what you wear!

colour-blog-1170x693

I’m not the one to be wearing bold colours when it comes to fashion, all my life I liked to stick to my usual black and white colours when it came to buying clothes, as I just felt bright and bold colours were not the one for me. But, recently over the last few months I have started to find my love for bolder colours. Wearing bold colours in summer is a perfect time, as everything just contrasts so well!

I had recently bought a leather jacket (as leather jackets are so in right now!) in the colour of Yellow/Mustard. I instantly fell in love with this jacket as I saw someone in my Psychology class wearing one in where I had to ask where she had got it from. I bought this jacket the next day and wearing it out, got me receiving so many compliments. My friend had commented that she didn’t think it would look so nice until she saw me wearing it.

Above are two images of myself in the leather jacket, if anyone else would like to purchase this jacket you can find it on: http://www.newlook.com/shop/womens/jackets-and-coats/yellow-belted-cropped-leather-look-biker-jacket-_513014387

As I am obsessed with this look, I decided to share this post with yourselves and just to say never be scared to wear bright and bold colours as now is the perfect time to! Also rather wearing just clothes that are bold and bright, why not try a new bold lipstick colour maybe? I am a huge fan of red lipsticks and it is my favourite, so why not experiment and stand out this summer?
