Why turning 18 scares the crap out of me

Image
It’s well into September of 2017, which means only one thing. The school year I turn 18. What I mean by this is it’s the start of people who I grew up with, went to school with, am friends with, turning 18. This scares me greatly. Most people can’t wait until their 18th birthday. They can’t wait to “legally” be able to do all the things they have wanted to do and have been doing anyway since they were 15. Me, well I’m shitting it.

I am not a big partier so the whole “going out” thing doesn’t bother me too much. Yes, I will now and then, but it’s not something I’m desperate to do. There are so many things that terrify me about turning 18, here a few.
·University. Do I want to go? Do I not? ·What am I doing life wise for that matter? ·Adult prices of things (boo hoo) ·Pressure. I ain’t a kid anymore. ·Where have all the years gone? Can I just press restart? ·More on that matter, I felt like I wasted my teen years for so many reasons. That makes me sad, and I feel like turning 18 signifies a…

GIGI HADID SPRING MAKEUP LOOK.

Image
Who doesn't want to look like Gigi Hadid? Not me. I want to. For sure. She is gorgeous, and I love her makeup look. So, I decided to do my best to recreate it. She seems to go for quite a natural pretty look, with a peachy tone on the eyes and cheeks and a pinky lip. I have been planning and researching this look for so long, and I am so excited to be finally doing it! I am also excited that is it almost spring, and I hope that this look will help you get in the mood for it. Let's begin!



Primer : Maybeline baby skin, which helped achieve a smooth flawless base. I also used some of the Rimmel good to glow liquid highlighter, to recreate Gigi's inner glow.

Foundation : L'oreal infallible matte. I used this foundation as I wanted a flawless, full coverage finish. Gigi does have really glowy skin, and this foundation is matte (it isn't a flat matte, it does have some reflect to it), but using the glowy base before hand really helped to get the perfect amount of dewiness.

The Pretty Little Liars Tag 2016

Today I thought I would do the PLL Tag. Being a massive fan of PLL, I am mega excited to do this. I have decided to change a few of the questions and add a couple of new ones in to make it more fitting for season 6B. Let's begin!

1. Who is your favourite liar?

I can't decide between Hanna and Spencer. If you asked me back in season 1/2, the early days, I would have said Aria. I love writing just like her and some people say I look like her (I'm not too sure). But she started to annoy me as she got fishier, and everyone expected her to be a part of the A gang. I began to love Hanna and Spencer for different reasons. I love Hanna because she is hilarious, her one liners crack me up and she is very determined and sassy. However, I love Spencer because I love her intelligence, her wit, her out to get A mantra and her multiple romances...

2. Who is your favourite couple?

Leading on from the last question, ones with Spencer in. If you asked me back in the day, I would have always …

Eggs 3 ways

Image
Today's post is going to be a little different, a change from all the beauty stuff. Recently I have been introducing more food related posts onto my blog, and I have really enjoyed doing so. Because of this, I have decided to do a breakfast related post, ideas for ways to enjoy eggs in the morning. I think that having an egg related breakfast is good because it will give you protein and fuel for the day. All of these ideas are meat free too. Let's begin.

Breakfast #1 - Poached eggs on crumpets




Breakfast #2 - Egg and Cheese muffins




Breakfast #3 - Scrambled egg and Bean wrap




How do you like your eggs in a morning?

Bye for now,

My Makeup Brush Collection! (January 2016)

Image
Today I thought that I would show you all the makeup brushes I own. I am currently in the market for new ones, but I do feel as if I have all the essentials. Because of this, I hope this blog post can act as a guide if you are looking to buy your first brushes or just expand your collection. I am wanting a good angled cheek brush/contouring brush, a dense flat shader eye shadow brush and a couple of less dense super soft blending brushes, so if you know of any, please do recommend in the comments below! Not only would this help me but it would also help other people if they are looking for something I don't own! Lets get started!



For foundation, I like to use either the Real Techniques expert face brush (left) or the Real Techniques buffing brush (right). If I had to pick one however, I would go for the buffing brush as it works amazingly at buffing product in. The expert face brush is also really good for contouring, especially cream, as it elongated/more tapered so it fits in yo…

Baking Tanya Burr's Chocolate Cookies

Image
Today I thought I would share with you my experience baking Tanya Burr's infamous cookies, and tell you how I did it along the way if you are unfamiliar with the gorgeously gooey circles of delight's recipe.
You will need:
75g of cocoa powder A dash or two of milk, depending of how dry your mixture seems to be 300g of caster sugar 275g of self raising flour 200g of butter A large bar of white chocolate A large bar of milk chocolate One large egg







Method:
Preheat your oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Cream together your butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl, before cracking your egg into the mixture. You then want to stir in all your dry ingredients. At this point you want to add your milk if the dough is looking dry. After this, you want to break all your chocolate up into the squares and chuck it in. (And eat a piece or two - of course!) Start using your hands to form a dough, and when it is all combined, you can put in on a surface and separate it into rather large balls, ready …
