Small NewLook Haul

Today was a bit of a lazy day, so myself and my boyfriend went out to get a Starbucks and then decided to take a wander around some of the shops near by. We went into NewLook because I wanted to look at getting another skirt because I have one that I love and pretty much live in, and since this heatwave looks set to stay, I wanted to kit out with another to give myself a few more options.

There wasn’t a whole lot to choose from and I actually only found one skirt and no shorts which was a bit disappointing, but this one skirt I found will work well with a lot of outfits so its a good starting point. I also picked up a jumper that I liked that I can wear in the evening when it cools off a bit as well as into the autumn/winter time as well.

I also found a mug that looks super cute so I picked it up, it says Just Renewed my Gin Membership on it, which I thought was kinda funny.

About My YouTube Channel

Screen Shot 2017-09-11 at 12.19.22.png

If you didn’t already know, I have a YouTube channel. I’ve been trying to start one up for a few years now and I’d start it then not keep up with it because of time and lacking video ideas. However I recently downsized my camera to a Canon G7x (which I love) and re-started my YouTube channel. My aim is weekly vlogs because that’ll be easier to work around my university but still have videos that are tutorials, hauls and so on. I think having a more laid back channel will be so much easier to work around my schedule and as I’m not working anymore I’ll have time on a weekend to edit or film if I need too.

The channels been up for about a month now and I have managed to keep uploading at least one video a week (which is my aim) and I have been really enjoying it. Having spent four years studying photography I didn’t want to completely forget my creative side, however I just don’t have the buzz to take photos anymore, I seem to have more of a buzz to film videos and write blog posts which I am enjoying so much more. So check out my YouTube channel and subscribe if you’d like. Its not perfect and there is room for improvement, but I have just started and improvement will come as I do it more often.

Things to do by 2017

With only a month and a bit left until 2017, its getting to that time of year where people start thinking of how to better themselves and start christmas shopping. So I since I’m never usually one for doing that (apart from buying xmas presents), I thought I’d make a list of things to do before 2017.

The first thing I want to do is clean out my room. I want to go through all my clothes, shoes, college books, everything and just sort out what I want and what I dont, because I’m reaching the point that I’m seriously running out of room and my floors becoming an extended wardrobe. I then want to sift through all that and give away what I can to charity shops and throw away the rest.

The second thing is I want to sort my eating habits. I have a really bad case of IBS to the point my doctors have me on various medications to try help ease and control it. I’ve been told to follow the FODMAP diet religiously but I haven’t had a chance yet. The down side of still living at home is my dad wont let me do the weekly shop, so I have no control over what is brought. I want to start making weekly meal plans and actually making sure that I’m eating clean and sticking to the diet.

The third thing is I want to start taking more pictures because I want to, not because its for my college project. I want to feel the love for photography that I always had before I started this course. This course seems to have sucked my love for photography away a bit and I want to fight to regain that.

The fourth thing is I want to do blogmas. I want to try and put up a blog post every day in December, through to Christmas. Now for me that’s going to be tough as I have a busy work and uni schedule, but I promise that I’m going to try, even if I just write a bit of a ramble about the day.

The fifth and final thing I want to do is get my conch pierced. For ages I’ve been admiring other peoples conch piercings online, especially with the ring, I think it looks super cute. However I just haven’t braved it and got it done yet. Now that my rook piercing is pretty much healed, I want to go get my conch done. It was a toss up between tragus and conch, but I just knew that either way I was going to get my conch done eventually so I decided to get that first.

I recently got my Urban Decay Illuminated high lighter a new eyeliner that I will be reviewing for you guys in a few days once I’ve had a chance to try them out.

About Me

Welcome to my blog! My blog is going to contain things about make up, fashion &  more, both product reviews, products I love & hauls. As well as this I’ll also upload about any interesting day outs I have no matter what. I thought since this is a new blog it would be a good idea to do a bit of an intro to myself.

I’m nineteen & from London, I work in a bike shop around my studies and I’m hoping to become a physiotherapist. I’m very sporty, competing in cycling events and training martial arts to a high level. Apart from this I have a slight obsession with home ware & candles, I love the Autumn/Winter time and I have a dog called Bailey. I like make up and clothes and have way to much of it, as well as having an obsession with bath & body products resulting in me having tons of bubble baths and constantly changing my body wash & moisturiser. I am working on my YouTube channel although I’m not at editing yet, but I’m working on it, and I enjoy photography so can take a decent photo.

I’m going to aim to post at least once a week, although sometimes my life can get a bit chaotic but I’ll try my best to always have a post for you each week!
