New Year, New Me?

New Year, New Me?
Everyone always goes on about New Year, New Me but how many of them actually stick to their New Years resolutions realistically? Probably not many. My New Year, New Me resolutions (you may want to call them that) has been built up over months of thought, processing and progressing as a human. My resolutions for 2019 aren't some rubbish made up on the day to try to work towards but you all know, you will fail at keeping this up...such as not eating chocolate, going to the gym or not having alcohol but realistically, these fail within the first month, if not the first few days! 

I have thought long and hard about what I want to get out of my life and I have thought about the type of person i was and how I can work my way back to that person. The person I miss. This person was happy, full of life and energy, loved going out, loved being surrounded by loads of people and loved helping those in need. This past year, with everything that has gone on, I lost touch of my t…

Endometriosis 
I have decided to create a post to talk about my experiences with Endometriosis.  I was diagnosed with Endometriosis in 2012 at the age of 13.

Trigger Warning - Manchester Arena Bombing From A Survivor

Manchester Arena Bombing From A Survivor 


Monday 22nd May 2017. The day my life changed forever. The day I truly feared for my life. The day I thought I was going to die. I thought I would never make it out alive.

Ariana Grande finished the song "Dangerous Woman" and the lights came on. Instantly, a massive bang echoed through the arena. I knew something was wrong. My gut feeling knew there was something wrong and that I didn't feel safe staying still where I was and had to leave as soon as possible. I knew it was something serious but of what nature I was unsure. Was it a bomb? Was it a gunshot? Is there multiple people with guns? Is it just one bomb? Only one person or more? Literally everything was running through my head, just unsure what it could be but also not caring what it was as I just wanted to get out of there. The security who stand around the arena said it was a speaker, a board fell...anything but the truth as obviously they didn't know at this point unt…

Review of Anastasia Beverly Hills Aurora Highlighter Palette

Aurora 

I happened to come across the Aurora highlighter palette by Anastasia Beverly Hills at my local TKMaxx and I can say now, I was in total shock! I was so surprised that no one had already grabbed it before I had. I saw a few posts from a make up Facebook group regarding the palette being available there so thought I would go and have a look, not expecting anything...look down at the make up selection and there it was! £19.99 instead of £41! What a bargain! So I thought I would do a quick review of the palette.
My first impressions - Packaging is absolutely stunning! The packaging is a lovely blue to purple transition and it also reflects with the light, which I love!!!

Opening up - I removed the initial packaging around the palette and opened up to these amazing set of colours. They are so unique. You have the normal, what you expect to see as a highlighter shade then you have these beautiful bright colours. These really made this palette something so unique that I had to buy it!
