I Need Your Book Recommendations

Howdy guys so today’s post is me asking a lil favour from you people, I know you’re probably thinking, ‘but Carolanne, we come here to get content from you, not to give you stuff’ well apologies but ya’ll are the best people out there so who else better to get some inspiration from?

I’m really wanting to start reading more this year, well start reading again! I used to be such a huge bookworm when I was younger but growing up I’ve kind of lost touch with my love of reading, which is such a huge shame.

Anyway, at night time myself and Martin usually wind down by laying in bed on our phones and I kind of want to break that habit … my obsession with Tik Tok is getting out of hand folks!

So what I want from you lovely lot are some book recommendations, i’m hoping to get my head stuck into some horror, thriller, psychological type of books and would love it if you could point me in the right direction. Anything that’s gonna have me spooked, getting chills or just saying ‘no way’ is perfect!

If you could leave your recommendations in the comments or get in touch on twitter (@carolannedavies) I would greatly appreciate it and I promise the next post will be my usual, hilarious or make up filled post … deal?

Obsession Makeup London

I love, love, love discovering new makeup let alone new brands so when I was in Boots (drugstore) the other day scouring for some new products for a video, I came across a brand i’d literally never heard of or seen before … introducing Obsession Makeup London.

Straight away I was hooked and kept circling back to their display continuing to look at their products, I was so intrigued and I mean i’m a nosey person so you know I was on a mission to find out everything I could about the brand, uhm hello cruelty free and Vegan, ya heard me!

NYX Ultimate Eyeshadow Palette

You’ve already guessed by the title that we’re gonna be chatting about one of NYX’s eyeshadow palettes here so let’s just get into it. The ‘Brights’ version of the Ultimate Palette is literally b-e-a-utiful and also something that usually I would shy away from because the colours are so god damn bright (hence the name) and colourful but your girl is being all sorts of brave this year so I thought let’s give it a go eyy.

Hey Hey everyone so I thought I would do something a little different for this post and just sit down with you guys and have a lil old chin wag about some of the Tv shows from the past i’ve been loving again.

Friendships And When To Step Back

I think there comes a point in everyones life when you hear that little bell in your head and are hit with that voice that asks you ‘why do you keep trying?’, i’m referring to friendships of course but tbh all types of relationships can be applied to this.

I’ve never been the type of girl who had one specific group of friends that did everything together, i’m more of a friend here and there sort of girl if you know what I mean? I can count on one hand the number of close friends I have and i’m just fine with that, in fact I prefer it.

My Olaplex Experience

26982231_10155829020086815_1047310939_oYou’ve heard of Olaplex, right? I mean it’s literally everywhere in the hair care world now and I feel like it just came from nowhere like one minute i’d never seen, read or heard a single thing about it and the next it was blowing up my Instagram feed.

For those of you who’ve not yet came across Olaplex lemme just give you a little sum up of what it is and what it does. Basically Olaplex is a brand with miracle products that helps bond, strengthen, repair and protect hair from damage caused through bleaching, dying etc. and will be found in your hairdressers’ cupboards just sitting there waiting to transform your locks. Now I’m no hairdresser or hair expert so what I’m telling you here is just what I know/been told and have experienced but I’ll insert a link somewhere in this post to their website for more info.
