2018 Goals

2017 wasn’t one of my most productive years, I’ll admit. I regret letting my college exams and work get on top of me and making me worry constantly through the whole year, I regret not taking fitness as seriously as I probably should have and overall just feeling like the year was wasted. I’m setting myself these goals because I know 2018 I must improve to be a better person for not only myself but to show others I’m more than this. Here’s a list of things I’m going to try and achieve before 2019.

1) Study with consistency 
 Instead of waiting around for exams, I’m going to start revision early and slowly progress in my work. This means attending college on a more regular basis and using my spare time more wisely instead of playing video games and sleeping all day. If I study enough I know my grades will improve and it’ll all be worth it in the end, besides I’ll be getting a gap year soon so I may aswell focus while I have the chance. 

2) Focus on fitness
 I’ve been lazy with the gym at the end of 2017, I started to become very regular and went a minimum of four days a week. I saw so much progress and gained the weight I wanted, but then I just let all of it go. Less McDonald’s, more gym therapy for me in 2018. 

3) Love more 
I’ve always been a person who hates quite a lot of things. This year I want to change this list into things I love. Be more optimistic and open minded when it comes to friendships, socialising and let go of my anxiety. 

4) Get organised 
 I need to clear out my room, like properly. I’ve been dying to do this for months, I always get half way through and then give up, leaving things literally just as cluttered as before! I have so much stuff I don’t need but for some reason I just don’t want to let go of it. Get a grip jeez. 

5) Do something I know I’ll love 
Technically I’m already doing this by starting a blog. It’s something that I’ve really always wanted to do but never seemed to get around to it because I was too scared. I’m still worried that this won’t take off, but if it does I’ll be forever grateful. The purpose of this blog is for me to show other people who are like me that not everything is so perfect. Life is hard, skills are hard and things aren’t always black and white like most bloggers make things. We all go through difficult times so whatever, let’s talk about it, embrace it together and everything won’t seem so bad if we know there’s others going through the same stuff.

Makeup Favourites Review 2017

Hello and welcome to my list of 2017 make-up favourites! Most, if not all of these products are 100% recommended by me due to the quality and price ranges.

1) Mascaras I cannot simply choose one or two of these because I love them al so much for different reasons. W7 absolute lashes (first left) are amazing because not only are they super cheap, they give such an amazing extension onto your lashes. It’s best used on top of another mascara to give a good length eyelash. Next to W7 is Volume Million Lashes Waterproof. I love this mascara and honestly this paired up with the W7 mascara is to die for! Also it is Waterproof, hence the name, and does the job perfectly! Next to this is another Volume Million Lashes - this one is ‘So Couture’. Also another amazing product from the same brand, I am definitely going to keep buying these mascaras, I think that So Couture gives a more fuller look than the waterproof mascara, but that’s just my personal opinion. The next mascara, and probably my …

10 Cheap and Easy Date Night Ideas

I’m in a relationship and I know how difficult it can be to think of any effective date nights that are cheap, easy and special to you and your partner. I often found myself googling things to do for date nights, but often faced with answers such as ‘go to Paris for the weekend’ and I mean, that’s not very realistic or affordable, so enjoy my list of cheap date nights that are hopefully easier than going to Paris!

1) Movie, Snacks and Wine
Honestly one of my favourite date nights. You don’t have to worry about going out and dressing up or facing other people, all you need is you, Your bed, your loved one and food to make one of the most memorable dates. This is also extremely cheap, you can gather up some food from around the house and get a cheap bottle of wine, my favourite is Silverbay Rosè which is only £3 from Tesco. What a steal.

2) Quiet walk
Either around a nature reserve or a park near you, it’s always good to have some fresh air and stretch your legs every once in a while. …

What do you love about budget beauty? MBBB: Why do I love budget beauty? There are many reasons! Of course first and fore most - money! Being of Momma to two young babies, of course they always come first and this usually always leaves little for Mama! So finding products that are easily on the purse, but work wanders are top of my shopping list.  Another reason I love budget beauty is because it's fun! Sometimes you aren't sure what your going to get, and I have to be truthful, most of the time it's great! And you can have lots of fun trying new things. 
SS: I honestly believe that budget beauty is so so underrated! I love that you can go out with £10 in your pocket and come home with a couple items that’l…
