You are not your mind

I’ve been watching a lot of videos explaining that you are not your mind, but in a sense that,  that lil tiny shitty voice inside your head that says all those bad things about you and other people, isn’t you. Sure it might feel like that sometimes and you might even believe it or agree with it, but you don’t have to. You are so much more than your mind, your conscious is a great thing and you can be in control. Meditating for 5minutes+ a day can really help you to disconnect from that mean voice in your head and connect to you and what you want/need. There is actually a lot of videos on YouTube to help you meditate, and the more you do it, the better you feel. Inner happiness is something that takes time to build up, but even the journey is so rewarding. I can’t even begin to explain the feeling and I’ve only been properly into it for the past couple of weeks. I would 100% recommend looking into it and The Messy Effect on YouTube. It’s like some sort of realisation that comes with instant hope. Anyway I’ll keep you guys updated and I hope you start your journey to inner happiness and peace.

I’m going insane?!

Like I genuinely slept for 12 hours last night but I feel so out of it. Like everything is just happening around me and I’m watching from the outside. Very odd.

 It’s been so hectic in work and it’s got to the point where a spelling mistake can make your day. Still forcing myself to stay positive, after all, a day can only last 24 hours. 

I also watched a program called “stripped bare” last night where they literally take away everything you own and you choose an item at a time to get back and it sort of really put into perspective what is most important and how materialistic people can actually be. Like I kinda really want to get rid of everything because I feel like cluttered surroundings means a cluttered brain.. Idk tho just a theory.

Anyways speak to you next time, goodbye for now little buns

How to; be happy 

Okay so let’s just like chill for a sec. Whatever may be going on, or whatever you are worrying about, forget it, block that out of you memory just for a sec. Now, soak up your surroundings. I mean I’m in work but we have really bright and matching highlighters that make everything look lovely, people playing all kinds of instruments at all different levels of ability, and a glimpse of the trees outside. For just a second, you can make all those little things matter, you can appreciate them and think about how everything that you do is ultimately your choice and we are so small and insignificant in proportion to the rest of the world. You have to appreciate everything, let yourself  smile at the simplest of things, it’s okay to be happy. So many people are negative about people’s looks, interests, and even the fact that they seem to be getting some sort of joy out of life but that doesn’t reflect on you, it reflects on them. Be that person who smiles at strangers, pulls funny faces at babies, smells the flowers on their journey home; make the most of your surroundings, even if it takes you 10 minutes to think of something even slightly positive. If you constantly tell yourself everything is awful, it most likely will be, but if you have a positive mindset and lift your mood, I can guarantee it makes things SO much easier. Do things for yourself, not for someone else. You matter, you are important, and you need to be happy. You only get one life (supposedly), live it how YOU want to. Be positive, be accepting, and be happy. I may still have 3 and a half hours left of work but I’m fortunate to have a job, with some great people, and be able to watch children and adults learn. And I can just picture giving my boyfriend a great big hug when I get home! Goodbye for now little buns, much love

Im useless

Lol bet you didn’t see that coming- me, Chloe French, not posting for months on end? Mad isn’t it, I mean that hasn’t been the topic of my last like 10 posts or anything, no not at all. I mean, sorry, again. HOWEVER I was thinking about it, and I do call this my public diary, so why do I care so much what I write about and when? I think I’m just going to post random things as and when they pop into my head. It could mean that my blog will now be totally different but oh well- I think I’m back on the scene, goodbye for now little buns, but let me assure you- not for long.

Carry On Essentials | Collab with Rawan

Hey guys! Today I am going to be telling you what my ‘carry on’ essentials are. With the weather how it is in the UK, I’m guessing most people probably want to escape to somewhere warmer asap! This is a collab with the amazing Rawan, don’t forget to visit her blog after you’ve read this post and see what her carry on essentials are!

First things first, I always need to remember to take both English and foreign money, because let’s be honest, I can’t resist a bit of airport shopping. And depending on what time and how long you are there; food. Who am I kidding its always time for food.

Something that is always a must on aeroplanes, a jumper. I don’t know why, but no matter how many layers I put on, I am always freezing. It also doubles as a pillow if you  somehow aren’t cold. BINGO.

Another thing that I always notice on planes, everything feels dry. Face, lips, hands, EVERYTHING. So for me it is absolutely necessary to take lip balm and a nourishing face cream at the very least. And the great thing is that you can always spot treat certain spots on your face if you have any problem areas.

I mean, its pretty obvious that today the majority of people will always have their phone on them, but headphones, they can be easily forgotten. And unless you want to pay an absurd amount for them on the plane, or listen to the guy next to you snoring, don’t forget to pack them!

DSC_0721

There’s no other way to say it, planes are boring. And there is no way I can sit there unless I have a lot of entertainment. If I’m not colouring, I am forcing people to play ‘boy/girl’. Or writing about some sh*t, who knows.

And just in case, DO NOT forget any medication, just don’t.

DSC_0722

Yeah, planes are dirty. Be the ‘Mum’ and take hand sanitiser and tissues, someone always needs a tissue.

If you’re anything like me, your ears just cannot deal with the whole ‘taking off’ and ‘landing’ situation. So hard boiled sweets, or mints to make you feel ‘fresh’, are an absolute must.

DSC_0723

And my favourite thing to bring- slippers and/or fluffy socks. My circulation SUCKS so if I want to still have feeling in my feet, they need to be toasty. And the comfort is just unreal. I am a fan.

PS don’t forget your passport or ticket, but I felt like that was pretty standard. Like you definitely need that.

I hope you enjoyed this post. Don’t forget to head on over to Rawan’s blog to check out her post! Goodbye for now little buns! x

Autumn walks make up look!

Hello my lovelies! I hope you’re all having a great day, today I am going to show you how I got this-

DSC_0464

– makeup look, keep reading!

DSC_0446

Here’s my wonderful “before face”, moisturised, primed and ready to rumble. I also applied a bit of the benefit high beam to all of the high points of my face to give that ‘glowing from within’ look.

DSC_0448

I then mixed together the Georgio Armani and Illamasqua foundations to give me the right amount of coverage without completely covering every imperfection.

DSC_0449

Next I concealed and highlighted with my MAC pro longwear concealer in NC15 and set that with my Rimmel clear complexion powder.

DSC_0450

To contour I used the Bourjois ‘chocolate bronzer’ and applied that quite generously to the hollows of my cheekbones, forehead, under my lip and under my jawline. For blush I just used the Estee Lauder ‘plush petal’ and applied it mainly towards the back of my cheeks to keep my face looking lifted. I then highlighted using the makeup revolution vivid baked highlighter in ‘golden lights’ to fake that I am a golden goddess.

DSC_0456

I then built up the two matte brown colours in my crease and outer corner of my eyes to make them look more smokey and sultry.

I then added the darker toned pink shimmery colour to the outer side of my lids and the lighter pink shimmery colour on the inner third.

DSC_0453

Then I placed the matte brown colours underneath my eye, added a white eyeliner on my water line, and thin black liner on my top lash line and also some small dots in my bottom lash line to make my lashes look thicker.

DSC_0458

Like so!

DSC_0460
I then filled in my brows with the anastasia dip brow pomade in ‘dark brown’ and applied both the Benefit roller lash and the maybelline ‘the rocket’ waterproof mascara and moved on to lips!

DSC_0462

I first chucked on the body shop ‘mahogany’ lip liner- shocker! But it makes my lips look huge so it’s okay

DSC_0463

Then for a bit of gloss for those ‘kissable’ lips I added the Elizabeth Arden lip gloss in ‘latte’.

Then after spending forever messing with my hair (it ended up in a braid, since we actually went the beach..in October) I was ready to go!

I hope you enjoyed this post and I look forward to speaking to you again soon! Goodbye for now little buns!
