Who I'm Advertising - June 2017

Hey everyone,

If you follow me on twitter you will know that I was running a giveaway to win an advertising spot on my blog, originally I decided to only give away one slot but then i thought... why don't I giveaway four slots. This is my way to give back to my readers and people I talk to on twitter. For me, twitter is a huge part of my life. I have so many friends that I talk to loads. So, who won the giveaway you will be wondering...

Their products are very reasonably priced and are in the middle of the price range when it comes to drugstore makeup. Their prices start at just £1.99 to £10. What a great bargain!

I am a total makeup junkie. I am addicted to buying new makeup and skincare products and love to review them on my blog.

Seventeen Mega Matte Lipsticks Review

Hey lovlies, 
Before I get into this post I just want to say that I have a new scheduled for blog posts! I am going to be turning out THREE posts a week, who's excited, I definitely am! What days are you thinking about doing you may be wondering, well I am thinking Monday, Wednesday and Saturday... what do you think? I will however be looking for more guest posts so if you want to be featured on my blog do let me know I will be aiming to have a guest post every Wednesday and this will be my way of thanking you all for reading.

I am beyond excited to do this review! I have been  using the Seventeen mega matte lipsticks since September when Seventeen kindly wanted to send me these lipsticks as well as the easy on the eyes palette which i have previously done a review on. Now when they contacted me i was over the moon to say the least. I had been a big fan of Seventeen for at least a year and when they contacted me i had only been blogging a month. Don't ask me why i never put this post up sooner, I guess I have just always had other posts to write about and but this in the back burner. Well today is the day you finally after nine months get to read it!

Love yourself more...

Hey loves,

Review: Makeup Revolution iconic lights & contour pro kit

Hey lovelies,
Today I have a a review of the Makeup Revolution iconic lights & contour pro kit. I got this palette two or so months ago and I must say its lived up to my expectations and has become a staple product I reach to every time I do my makeup. This palette is £8 and you can get it from TAM BEAUTY or superdug. I have heard this palette being refered to as a dupe of the NYX one however I haven't ever used the NYX one but i do know it is £18, so that means that the Makeup Revolution palette is £10 cheaper.

Goodbye contouring hello strobing and baking

Hey lovelies, you will probably be thinking the same as me, “what, why is contouring dying out”, don’t freak there is two other things on the block to replace, they do the same thing just without using bronzer/dark shades which many people find hard to get correct.

The scales lie!

Hey my lovelies,
I'm writing this post at 11:30pm as something happened today to make me realise that 'scales lie'.

Now as I have recovered from anorexia, I can still struggle to rationalise the number the scale says. For 2 years I constantly weighed myself, at one point it was 7 or 8 times a day, which is now looking back at it ridiculous but at the time it measured my self worth
.

Pre workout smoothie

Hiya lovelies,
Today I decided I would share with you my pre workout smoothie, this can be substituted for a lunch/ breakfast as well. This smoothie is packed full of nutrients you need before a gym session. I have done two options, one made with almond milk and one made with semi skimmed milk and they both taste identical.


Where I've been...

Hey lovelies,
Sorry again I've been missing... I've taken a break from blogging again for many a reason but I'm back and hopefully one day will feel strong enough to explain why I was missing for the past two months. I'm back and ready to upload more content and have some great ideas of posts I want todo in the near future. Though these posts may slightly change the theme of my blog.

Top 5 favourite blogs of February 2017

Hey everyone, long time no post :( but I'm hoping to be back for good! 

Grow your blog/ business with snapchat!

Hey lovelies,
Today I want to talk about ways to use snapchat to grow your blog/ business...

Why use snapchat?

Well, snapchat has more users than twitter alone and has a lot more active users aswell, thought twitter brought you a lot of traffic well, snapchat can too bring loads of traffic.

Snapchat allows smart phone users to capture a photo and send it for up to 10 seconds or less and send videos for up to 10 seconds also. You can post to your story where all your followers can see what you are up to or to solely a select few of your friends. You can restrict people to see your story in settings but for your blog or brand allowing everyone too see is very beneficial! Just a heads up, when you first make your snapchat account your story is set to private so you will most likely want to change that.
