Update // Getting back into the Swing of Things

Hello Everyone!
It’s me , the person who couldn’t update her blog for a VERY VERY long time! I suppose life got in the way , and I’m not going to lie , I’ve been incredibly lazy too , so much has gone on these past few months , that I felt I needed to take a breather and collect my thoughts and go from there.

I suppose the first thing I want to address , is the direction I want to take my blog , I’ve never had a schedule , a set time when I would post so I want to try my hardest now to set one , I’m starting a new job next week so I’ll know roughly when I’ll be able to post and get new content up then. I feel extremely embarrassed that I haven’t posted in so long.I also purchased a lot of Makeup Revolution items and I’m thinking on doing a haul or review on some of them , let me know down below if you would like to see that.

Secondly , I FINALLY go out of the course I hated. If you didn’t already know I was doing applied computing in college and absolutely hated it! It wasn’t for me and I just didn’t see myself doing it. That brings me on to my next topic! Next Year I will be training to become A MAKEUP ARTIST! It’s always been my dream to become a makeup artist but I was always told I needed to get a “proper” degree first , after a loooooong sit down with my parents , they knew I wasn’t happy with what I was doing and instead of making me go through something I hated , they understood and let me drop out to do something I loved.

So right now I’ll be working full time , trying to save up for a car and also working towards getting a qualification in becoming a makeup artist , I have a lot more time now too to write my blog without worrying about exams and papers , so hopefully I’ll be straight back at it!

 

thanks so much for reading guys you can follow me on Twitter and Instagram to see what I got up to during my extremely long break

My Pamper Evening Routine ♡

Hi guys

So I’ve always wanted to do a pamper routine and I find I always have more time for pamper evenings than mornings due to college , I thought it would be cool to include some little snaps to my evening routine for you all, I hope you enjoy this little post!

When I come home in the evenings I usually take to the computer first and catch up on whatever Youtube I missed out on ( You can subscribe to me on Youtube HERE) I adore watching Danielle Mansutti she is super down to earth. I also go on Twitter and Facebook and see what’s going on over there too

Next thing I love to do is make a little cup of tea , this helps me unwind and relax , I feel a lot more calm after I take my tea when its been a hectic day. I drink far too much tea in a day , I think I may have a problem!

I usually hop on over my blog and see what everyone’s been posting and catch up on wordpress for a while , I love reading and writing posts these days , I’m focusing a lot more on my blog and I’ve been loving it!

So after dinner , I usually like to go for a shower or bath , I decided on a bath today but unfortunately I had no nice bathbombs to add in so it was just normal bubbles for me! After my bath I then wash my face and follow up on my skin care.

I then get into a pair of comfy pajamas and settle down for the night , I watch a little bit of TV and Youtube before going to bed.

Something a little different || Life, College & Anxiety.

Hi guys

So I thought today I would do a different kind of post , I feel like I need to change things around on my blog, put a bit of a personal touch to it and open up a little more. I want to change some things around mix my daily life into it and maybe start vlogging? I’ve been playing around with the idea of vlogging for a while and would love to dive into it , it comes across as the best form of getting to know people and what their pesonality is like.

So apart from trying out vlogging , I’ve also had some things going on in my life, I recently passed my Theory Test for driving and will be starting lessons soon. Driving is something that I really feel I need right now. I think it will give me some independence and freedom as I still live at home because my college is only 15 minutes away.

I suppose before I ramble about college I’ll let you guys know how I’ve been the past few months because I haven’t mentioned it to many people aside from my family, friends and boyfriend. I’ve been having extremely bad anxiety the past few months , and over that short time it has been growing worse. I would find it hard to do every day things , I couldn’t even go to a till to pay for things , I couldn’t answer a phone and I could barely hold a conversation with someone I barely knew. Anxiety is something that everyone deals with differently and for me it was a huge issue a few years ago and has crept back up on me now. I felt like everything was on top of me and that I couldn’t even see where my future was going and that I was just stuck in a rut. I decided that I need to take things slower and set little targets for myself. I have decided to cut my course down from 4 years to 3 , with an optional year at the end of the 3rd year incase I still want to continue on to get a degree. The course I am doing is something I no longer have an interest in , but when I found out I could do 3 years I jumped at the chance instead of giving it up completely.

After talking about college and discussing my options I found that everything was easing off I felt the cloud of anxiety that was following me was finally starting to go. My anxiety isn’t gone completely but I feel  talking about the situation to the people closest to me really helped me deal with it.

On a lighter note , Halloween break was great , I finally was able to relax and not have to worry about assignments and work. I spent time with friends and had a chill week. My provisional license will be ariving some time this week so I’ll be starting my lessons once It arrives . My goal is to be able to drive before I go back to college next year so fingers crossed!

I would really love to know your ideas on vlogging , would you be interested in seeing some vlogs? drop me a comment below 🙂
