THE KKW X KYLIE COLLECTION: HOLY GRAIL OR ABSOLUTE FAIL?




Today I bring a very exciting post and that is testing the KKW X KYLIE Collection and letting you all know my honest thoughts on Kylie Jenner's latest money maker and deciding whether this collection is a HOLY GRAIL 😍or an ABSOLUTE FAIL πŸ‘ŽπŸ»

From the moment I saw Kim share the image of the four lipsticks I knew instantly that I had to get my hands on this collection. I've always been someone thats interested in Kylie Cosmetics and the products that she and her team creates; also the madness each time a new product is launched is madness. No matter what your opinion of the Kardashian/Jenner clan is I think it is fair for everyone to admit just how successful this family is. No matter what they are doing or creating they are PERFECT at "breaking the internet" and causing a storm and so much attention; so guys, atlas commend them for that. I personally LOVE the whole family and I think the relationship and bond they all have for each other is the sweetest thing. So, as a avid fan of KUWTK and Kim especially I knew that this would finally be the right time to purchase a Kylie Cosmetics product.

WHY ANXIETY WILL ALWAYS BE MY SECOND SHADOW

Hi, guys... *guilty face*. It has been an embarrassingly long time since I last posted but hey, this post may help to shed light on why that has been. 

I wanted and almost needed to write this post for many reasons; some cliche such as helping other people in this situation out and offering them a helping hand, some personal; much heavier reasons that are probably best left for another day, but also for catharsis. There is something heartwarmingly therapeutic about getting the weight off of your shoulders and sharing your heartache with another person, or in my case many people, it makes you feel lighter in a sense. At least for me. We all know the cringe catchphrase - "A problem shared is a problem halved." Cliche but always accurate.

If I can help just one person that reads this I will be over the moon. Whether you looking to become more educated about mental health or you are someone in a similar situation to me and you are looking to find some condolence that you are not alone. Because you aren't alone at all. Trust me when I say this; whilst mental illness can make you feel like you are the only person on this entire planet you are not alone and I personally don't want anyone to feel this way, so if anybody reading this if currently feeling this way please reach out to me, I will always have all of the time for you, any time of the day and for anyone at all.

FAIL OR HOLY GRAIL? APRIL







First of all Happy Easter guys!  πŸ£ I hope you are all in a chocolate induced coma and surrounded by empty wrappers and screwed up foil, just how Easter should be! ❤️. Today brings the start of a new series that I would like to start; now I know that I am personally terrible at sticking to schedules and just doing anything on time to be quite honest but this is something that I would definitely like to do monthly or even every other month if that works out being a better schedule for me. In short, every month I will be picking two products either recommended to me or products that are Youtube/Insta hyped and fitting these into either the HOLY GRAIL category πŸ‘ΌπŸΌ or the FAIL categoryπŸ‘ŽπŸ». I hope this is something you will all enjoy and I know I will definitely have A LOT of fun reviewing all of these products! 

This month the two products that I will be picking apart are the MaxFactor Miracle Match foundation and the Revolution Highlighter Palette and for this month we start things with one certain FAIL and one definite HOLY GRAIL. 


Lets start with the MaxFactor Miracle Match foundation. I purchased this foundation from my local Superdrug for £12.99 and I must say that my Superdrug isn't the biggest of stores and normally only carries a select few shades, however the Maxfactor display had quite an array of shades which satisfies the soul when you are a pale ass like myself. The Miracle Match foundation brags that the collection holds 18 shades which is awesome; however in my opinion I believe there is not huge variety in these shades. MaxFactor, wheres the support for the paler and darker ladies?

MY PET PEEVES

SHIT I HATE


Look who is back for the second post in the last few days, don't be too impressed guys ;)

Hello, everyone! Today I have a post that I have been preparing and that I have wanted to write for months now after watching Tana Mongeau's video about her pet peeves and I agreed with SO many of them, and that is telling you some of my BIGGEST pet peeves. Now, I am a very very laid-back person but there are just some things that pick at my emotions and really grind my gears and here is a selection of them! Also, who better to illustrate this list other than eye roll queen Blair Waldorf herself. Let me know in the comments below if any of these are pet peeves that you share yourself or let me know some of your biggest pet peeves also! :) 


PEOPLE CRITICISING AND COMMENTATING ON MY FOOD 

This is something that Tana definitely mentioned in her video and I completely agree with EVERYTHING that she said. All of my life nothing has ever annoyed me more than people who feel some overwhelming urge to share their thoughts and opinions on the food THAT THEY DO NOT NEED TO EAT AND AREN'T EATING whilst you are eating it. This is hands down my least favourite pet peeve and I have always found it so incredibly rude. I didn't ask for your opinion, I chose this food for ME to eat not YOU to eat, I don't know why it drives me so insane but it really pisses me off. 

Lisa: "OH MY GOD, what IS that? That looks SO disgusting! Ew, you like tuna? Tuna is soooooo gross, oh my god it really stinks it looks really disgusting"

FUCK OFF LISA

Every Girl Needs A Little Black Necklace

Hi guys, it has been a few days since I last posted which is soon frustrating as I had been on such a good streak but sometimes life throws unexpected things at you; I have been pretty poorly the last few days but getting better by the day ☺️






Today I have a very special review for you in collaboration with a brand that truly excites me! James Viana kindly contacted me and asked if I would be happy for them to send me a piece of jewellery from their collection and when it arrived it felt like it was designed just for me.

Why I Can Love Lipstick & Eyeliner And Still Love Politics, Stormzy And Gaming

I didn't imagine that I would be writing a post like this a mere 12 hours after International Womens Day had ended but reading an article this morning sparked something inside of me that couldn't be silenced until I expressed it. Let me begrudgingly introduce you to Janusz Korwin-Mikke; a Polish MEP with a view of the world that ever so widely differs from my own. Being at the centre of the media's attention is clearly something that Janusz enjoys and is very much so using this to his advantage.


Initially he came into the limelight and first hit headlines a week ago by claiming in an EU parliamentary meeting that he believes that "women should earn less than men" and to add to the absurdity his reasoning behind this is that they are shorter/smaller and much weaker than men?????? Janusz has also come under fire in the past for his racist comments but he came back into headlines this week by questioning what have women done and asked a group of women to name an invention that women have created and that they wouldn't be able to. Ignorance cannot be an excuse here, just sheer idiocy and sexism.
