Going it alone..

On Thursday I had my last therapy session, my last one! And although I am over the moon it is kind of daunting knowing that you don’t have someone there to rely on and offload all of your problemos on to. So, what do you do about it? 

Well simply, just don’t care. Like literally try to not give a sh*t about a single thing. That guy who asked you out has now gone back on it and is being an asshole- who cares? Not me. You accidentally punched yourself in the face again and now your nose looks disgusting?? Yeah I actually don’t care about that either, although it does kind of hurt a bit. 

You have to ask yourself if it is really worth getting sad, angry or frustrated etc at. Because let’s be honest, I can’t be the only one who has dropped something on a bad day and started balling my eyes  out. 

If it’s not worth your feelings, get rid of them. I mean yeah it’s easier said than done but life is so much easier when you don’t have a dark cloud hanging over your head. 

I wasn’t really sure where I was going with this post and I don’t really know where I have ended up but yeah you are brilliant and I hope you have a great day. 

I might do another post later, who knows. Goodbye for now little buns!

Kylie Jenner inspired make up tutorial!

Hi everyone! I’ve been stuck in a bit of a blogging rut as of late and I feel like everything I write is super boring and not me. So after a lovely holiday and time to relax I have really thought about what I need to do and how. Hopefully it works this time..
So anyway, yeah, tutorial!

For my foundation I just mixed my new Giorgio Armani foundation with a darker bourjois one because believe it or not- I’m actually tanned! I also added some of the Benefit High Beam for a beautiful glow.

To conceal and highlight I just used my favourite MAC pro longwear concealer in NC15 and plonked it pretty much everywhere, as you can see in the picture above..hopefully.

For the rest of my face makeup I contoured with the bronzer from the urban decay flushed pallete in “native”, used the sleek rose gold blush to add a bit of colour and then a make up revolution highlighter with more gold tones in it to give me a warmer highlighted look.

…like that.

For my eyes I started with MAC “cork” and a little bit of “patina” to start to create some shadows and definition.

Next I used “faint” to darken this up and “naked 2” to blend it out more, I also put this underneath my bottom lash line to make sure my eyes didn’t look too top heavy. I then added “foxy” to my lid and lined my upper lash line and added a teeny tiny wing as Kylie doesn’t appear to wear cat eye looks.

I then added some of the Benefit rollerlash mascara…

before adding falsies and filling my brows in with the anastasia dip brow pomade in “dark brown”.

For those classic Kylie Jenner lips I just (over)lined my lips using my favourite “mahogany” lip liner by The Body Shop and my make up revolution ‘happy lips’ lip stick in “love nude”.

Recovery

Now, I don’t want to make this post a tear jerker, but over the past week I have had so many lovely people telling me how much I have changed since I started therapy and medication. Those helping hands have made it so much easier to put into practice what I have learnt so I thought I would give you some tips on your road to recovery, whatever it may be that you are recovering from!

  1. Fake it till you make it– I cannot stress enough how much this has helped me, pretending to be happy, confident, relaxed will slowly but surely make you believe that you are happy, confident and relaxed. Until this weekend just gone,  I had never been and had no intentions of going to town, but I did, I pretended I was 100% okay with it and do you know what? I was!
  2. Allow yourself to have feelings– it is okay to be upset, nervous, stressed or angry. And that doesn’t mean that you are back at square one, some times life just hits you in the face and you need to let yourself act how you really feel. Faking being happy is great (as said above) but don’t just bottle up your feelings entirely, sometimes you need to let it all out, and it is only human.
  3. Do good deeds– I don’t know about you but I feel so happy when other people are happy, and especially if I am the cause of that happiness. Doing good for others does good for yourself.
  4. Be a little selfish sometimes– I struggle with this one because I like to be nice and helpful 24/7, even if I am the one worse off. But sometimes you have to take into account how you feel and do what is best for you, because after all you are the most important person in your life.
  5. Balance– there needs to be a good balance between work, rest and play. Some people are okay with working 5, 6 days a week, but for me, 3 or 4 is a struggle. The main thing is that I am working enough for my balance, I need more rest than others and that is okay. Don’t beat yourself up about it.
  6. Don’t compare yourself to others– other people aren’t going through the same things that you are, you are doing the best that you can and that IS good enough. You don’t need to match what other people are doing, do what is best for you.
  7. Plan– if I know I’m feeling a bit sluggish, and especially if I have things to do, I will plan my day. Whether that be stupidly detailed or just very vague I will give myself a check list of what needs doing and do it. If I don’t, that’s okay too.
  8. Remember the little things– you can always pull something positive out of your day, whether that be that you ate a really nice strawberry or you won the lottery, always finish your day on a good note.
  9. Spend time with people who love you– they care about you and want to see you happy, so when you spend time with them they will lift your spirits which will in turn lift theirs.
  10. It’s okay to ask for help– whether your hours or months into recovery, it’s okay to ask for help. Don’t struggle in silence just because you don’t want to disturb anyone, that is what they are there for.

I hope that this post helped someone out there, you, yes you, are amazing- goodbye for now little buns!

Review: Superdrug sensitive wax strips

Hi everyone! Sorry for the short delay in posts, I feel like I have ran out of ideas! However the other day I decided to test out these wax strips so that if they were any good I could use them before I go on holiday. 

The strips are super easy to use, you just warm them in between your hands for about 30 seconds, pull them apart and then slap it on your leg! Then just leave it until you think the wax has properly gripped and rip it off in the opposite direction of your hair growth. 

The pain is just kind of annoying, like when you graze your knee, but if it only lasted for like 10 seconds. They come with soothing wipes which are quite oily so don’t rub any areas you haven’t waxed yet. 

I felt like not much hair was eliminated and was kind of pissed off that I had to do the other leg (it takes a while) to even them out. I still ended up shaving my leg afterwards.

One thing I would say is that as my leg hair has grown back there is obviously a lot less of it so my legs still feel pretty smooth. 

I’m sure these were only like £3 a pack and I still have more than one packet left after doing up to my knee on both legs, I would try these again but only if I felt it was absolutely necessary. 

Have you tried these out? Or any other at home waxing kits? Let me know in the comments! Goodbye for now little buns!
