Looking back at 2016 and Ideas for 2017


Throughout 2010, 2011, 2012 and half of 2013 (I got bored) I wrote in dairies, everything I did each day. Thinking about it, that was a lot of commitment for my younger self (lol). When I was clearing out my drawers I found these diaries and looked back on the years and smiled to myself. It was so nice to read what I did when I was younger and it brought back so many memories of people who I had in my life. There wasn't much that was interesting in there mostly "went to school, came home, had dinner, went to sleep" or on the weekends "slept over at my friends house", "went out with my friend" "went to my nans". *Thinks back to the times when I had many friends and was out all the time* So when Louise (Sprinkle of Glitter) from Youtube released annual diaries that were super cute I had to purchase one. Then I decided to document everything I did again.

What I Got For Christmas 2016


Christmas is over and done with already which makes me very sad. It's crazy how we do so much prep and then it's over so quickly. I really felt excited for Christmas this year. It's not really the same when you are older however, this year has been the first year where I could afford to buy everybody presents. Therefore, I was excited to give my gifts to my family. I was also excited to receive some presents too of course. I don't have a problem with anyone sharing what they got for Christmas. I get once a year therefore, Christmas is obviously special so I will be happy to show everyone. Plus I am grateful for everything. I had a lovely Christmas with my family and I am now feeling rather full. I love all the food at Christmas time. I hope you all had a great Christmas!

My Fake Tan Routine


I LOVE fake tan so much. I have probably been using fake tan for 4 years now. I started off getting spray tans before experimenting with different products I can use at home. I won a Youtube giveaway once, including lots of fake tan products which enabled me to get started and practise. It didn't take me long to be able to achieve a good tan every time. So, I started off by using a tinted moisturiser before moving onto mousses. I like a good dark tan therefore I preferred using the mousses. I like to be tanned all the time but it's annoying that mousses are harder to scrub off and they don't last as long, seeing as you can always top up a gradual tanner. It is more effort using mousses every week but it's worth it to me seeing as I am overly pale. I think I have finally mastered fake tan. I know how to apply it and what works for me. It's a bit sad that I plan around my tan, deciding when it will be scrubbed off and re-applied for different occasions but I like it! If you want to know why I wear fake tan you can read my post here.

6 Reasons Why I Wear Fake Tan


I feel like fan tan is something you either LOVE or you HATE. There are many users of fake tan however there are many people out there who would turn down the thought of applying fake tan straight away. Which is fair enough, not everyone wants to be tanned but some of those say they are too pale to even try fake tan... thats the whole point! I am pale, like probably more pale than you. I literally look like I am a piece of paper (haha). So, if I can get away with it then you probably can too! It's just the matter of mastering the application and removal. I'm not going to go into how to do this there are lots of tutorials out there on YouTube, and also reccomendations of the best ones (if you'd like to see a blog post about my tanning routine, let me know in the comments). However, seeing as I have been tanning for 3 years I feel that I can tell you why I wear it and give you some tips.

Makeup Revolution Contour & Sculpt Pro HD Review


I haven't been able to stop going on about Makeup Revolution recently! My instagram followers have probably had enough... makeup revolution just looks too good in photos. My collection is slowly increasing in size with the many products I have been buying from this brand. In one of my many trips to superdrug, I saw a contour palette including 2 brushes and a sponge in a set. These sets have probably been brought out for Christmas, but of course I couldn't wait. I'm always up for trying new contouring products and I am in need of new brushes. This was actually bought for me but I'm pretty sure it sells for £12 which is a bargain! The set was one of my favourite birthday presents because of course, I love makeup. There are also many other sets so hopefully I get another one for Christmas. So if contouring isn't your thing, you should check out the other ones.
