Pretty in pink wedding outfit

So I have three weddings this year (woooooooooooooo) and the sheer panic of what to wear immediately hit me. My friend's wedding is in September and luckily, it didn't take me long at all to find the perfect autumnal wedding outfit.

Another one I am going to the wedding reception so will wear one of my pretty dresses I already have but the one in July was my main focus. This is because it is my cousin's big day so of course I wanted something lovely to wear and it is in summer so hopefully be sunny therefore wanted a light and floaty dress.

After months [MONTHS] of searching and having zero luck, online clothing website ASOS came to my rescue. Thank God for that!!!!!!!!!!!

And well, I am going for a pretty in pink summery wedding outfit...

Embracing one's individuality

For years now I have tried to fit in with society and its trends. Mainly because I was picked on at school and at home for being the weird kid [or the weird, fat, ugly kid in their words], I would try to fit in just so I could feel acceptable and wanted.

However, over the years, it suddenly hit me that a society where everyone looked and acted the same would just be so completely and utterly dull and boring.

And this is exactly why we should be embracing everyone's individuality in society!

Makeup Revolution Oil Control Fixing Spray review

A couple of weeks ago, I did a little review on Makeup Revolution's Retro Luxe Matte Lip Kits and along with that I did a tiny haul to show you want else I bought along with their fab lippy. Well, this Oil Control Fixing Spray was one of the many products and I decided to review this beauty as well.

Now, surely I cannot be the only one who spends at least 30-45 minutes getting ready to go out [this includes both makeup on and getting dressed]. Once you are in town, shopping your little heart away, or in that pub/club and you hit that dance floor, you get a little red in the face or you become hot and bothered because you are busting moves under so many lights. Just me?! Okay then...

When I saw Makeup Revolution's fixing spray, I was intrigued to say the least especially at the price of £5, which I thought was pretty goood. Will it work? Will it keep my makeup on when I am in town in the pouring rain? Will it not make me look like a tomato in the face as I dance the night away?

Let us find out then...

How I store my makeup

During my teenager years, I wasn't a girl for makeup. Being a tomboy, I didn't wear any for like 10 years due to the fact that I thought it was a waste of money. However, people did buy me beauty products as presents so eventually I ended up with quite a lot of cosmetic products that I didn't use or used once and them forget about it. Sorry guys!

However, over the last 12 months, I have gotten into me makeup and I have been having a majorrrrrr clear out of my bedroom recently, including my makeup boxes, the past month. From clothing and accessories to toys and bits n bobs, I accumulated 20 full bin bags full of crap. Like why am I such a hoarder???!?!!
One bin bag was full of beauty products I didn't use or didn't want anymore and the containers that were marked with foundation, lip gloss and god knows what other cosmetics were on it. Because of this, I had no where to put the makeup I have kept so my mind went into its usual process of panic then it hit me. A quirky, creative little storage solution perfect for all my beauty treasures!

So here is how I store my makeup...

Why am I single?

On Thursday, I went a little mate date to York [it was super duper funnnn] and as we were talking in the car [in the middle of us singing our little hearts out], we asked ourselves why are we single. Jokingly of course, but it did get me thinking about it.

I have always been single, with nothing more than a couple of on/off relationships, lasting no more than a month or so. This was mainly due to my insecurities and me wanting me time. Let's just say, I wasn't ready for a relationship during my teenage years, I had other crap to deal with before.

But now, at the ripe old of 22, I am ready for someone and so I am asking myself why am I single...

Catching feelings

Ahhh my favourite day of the year... Valentine's Day! Yeyyyyyyyy...... [crying because forever single]. Today I am going to be talking about the wonderful and 'oh my god what is this' world of feelings. Oh how I have a love hate relationship with them.

The feeling like you have just bossed that exam/interview, the feeling when you realise your favourite season is just around the corner, the feeling when you start to fancy the pants off someone and you have no idea what is life and how to act because of it and sheer panic comes into play. We have all been there.

Feelings are a funny thing really if we think about them. We can be happy one minute, sad the next, angry another and relaxed after. I dunno, I just find them all weird and confusing. But when I start to develop feelings for another human being, that's when I really get confused.

Now I'm no flirt at all, as some of you who maybe reading this will know, like I cannot flirt to save me life. I might give it a good go [God loves a trier guys] but apart from that, that is all you are getting. But in all seriousness, how the hell do you tell someone you have feelings for them?!

I literally have no idea where this post is going to go, I will admit that, but I am just going to write down everything I am thinking so this will either be good and relatable or proper cringy [I am betting the latter]. Plus it is Valentine's Day and today is all about that love ain't it so here we are!

Five things I'm loving right now

Well, I haven't done one of these style posts in agesssssssss, like pretty sure over a year now (oopsy), but I thought why not do one again!

There a lot of things I am loving at the moment but I have whittled it down to five ultimate things I adore at this present time, like obsessing over. From a couple of clothing items to an amazing album and handwriting, it is definitely a mixture of things.

So here are five things I am loving right now...

You can't have too much makeup, right?!

Another day, another blog post where I try not to get too carried away on my love of a beauty product. A couple of months ago, I bought myself a Makeup Revolution eye palette and just fell head over heels with it. This beauty brand is not only afford but really good quality so when I saw that they were bringing out some retro luxe matte lip kits, I was sooooo wanting to try on out! I mean, you can never have too many lip products right?!

After them being sold out last week in my nearest Superdrug store, I finallyy managed to get my hands on one yesterday in town! There are eight amazing colours (including a purple and green, like all my dreams are coming true woo) and I got me hands on my favourite lip colour, red, or in their shade Regal!
I will also include what else I bought in my favourite beauty brand's section as well because if you bought over £12 in Makeup Revolution products you got their pretty Love the Revolution palette for free (its normally worth £8).

So here is what I thought of Makeup Revolution's Retro Luxe Matte Lip kit...

A scrapbook of memories

I have been wanting to start doing a scrapbook for some time now but just haven't found a book that I love or that is suitable for what I want to do in it. However, a couple of weeks ago, I bought this lovely pinky red scrapbook half price form Boots for £6. Look how pretty it is with the little heart pattern and the vintage look of it, like yesssssssss Boots, yesssssssssssss!

Anyway, after printing off so many photographs, buying 3 rolls of double sided cellotape and finding bits n bobs to put in it, I can finally [FINALLY] say I have started my scrapbook of my most treasured memories so far, with plenty of empty pages waiting to be filled with joy and happiness!
It also gave me the opportunity to try out my calligraphy skills with a fountain pen haha!

Here's how far I have got with it so far!

The only way is up

Today is a day where we all should talk about our mental health. #TimeToTalk should really be everyday but it's day is today so I am going to be as open as I possibly can in this post.
Last year, I posted on my Facebook account about how I was fed up with all of the negative people/thoughts in my life, particularly looking at bullying, and how it is time for me to love myself again and finally accept my mental health.

Due to this, I thought I would write this and just let everything go, whilst also giving some advice that I wish I had been given in those really bad parts in my life.

So here is 'The only way is up'...
