Hey everyone, so with everything that’s going on in this crazy world at the moment I came up with an idea to write a lil post about some of the small businesses I’m really fond of that I came across online, mostly through Twitter.
I thought it might be a nice idea to show my support for them as I know a lot of people are struggling financially with this self isolation process, I’m not saying these businesses in particular are struggling because I have no idea but never the less I just wanted to share with you guys some of the hard working people I see on my timeline.
Hey you lovely lot, so today I wanted to share with you guys a few new makeup products that I picked up from Superdrug about two weeks ago. Ain’t gonna lie there’s only like four products here because we all know your girl is broke, but nevertheless I wanted to give you all my opinion on them.
It’s definitely been a minute since I bought myself some new makeup bits and bobs so testing these out has been kind of exciting … I know, I’m a saddo but I’m elderly now so leave me too it!
I know what you must be thinking, “Carolanne, you’ve done a make up look dedicated to the iced beverage that is a Tango Ice Blast?” Don’t worry I haven’t gone completely mad, I just did this look and it reminded me of an ice blast at the end so I decided to call it that … I did used to work in Cineworld many moons ago so I guess you never forget your roots!
I’ve been enjoying doing these make up look posts recently and I hope you guys have too, honestly I’m not even good at it but it’s just a bit of fun for me so please don’t take them too seriously … I know I won’t be getting on any PR lists anytime soon haha. Anyway here is the newest look and of course I will list and link everything I used below.
If you don’t know I turned twenty seven at the end of January, can someone please tell me how this happened? I feel like I’ve blinked and my twenties are almost coming to an end … slightly dramatic I know but honestly there’s something about getting past that twenty five mark that makes you shit yourself!
Anyway, what I thought would be a good idea is to write a couple of things down that if I could tell my seventeen year old self oh that decade ago, I would. I originally was going to write twenty seven things down but honestly I don’t think I’ll be able to think of that many so we’ll just see how it goes shall we?
So the other day I had to pop into Aberdeen town centre to do some errands … I also just realised I haven’t even updated you guys on the fact that I actually live in Scotland now, I promise I’ll do a post on this soon! Anyway while I was in town I thought I would swing by Primark ‘cos I was on the hunt for a new bag, my current everyday one kind of snapped (that’s what you get for swinging it at your boyfriend … jokingly of course I ain’t no Amber Heard)
Anywho, while I was there I picked up a couple of things that I thought I would share, ain’t gonna lie I could have bought so much, but I’m literally broke right now so can’t be spending. Funnily enough I didn’t buy any items of clothing, it was kind of just bits and bobs that you’re probably not going to care about but imma tell you anyway …
Like most people I think I’ve got a love/hate relationship with the gym, I love that feeling after a good work out and it definitely helps me mentally, just being able to clear your head and focus on what set you’re doing is refreshing, not to mention I feel amazing when I can see results. The hate part comes from feeling guilty when I haven’t been for a week or if I’ve been overdoing it with the treats … which I definitely do! As much as I do enjoy the gym I sometimes think to myself “Damn, I’m gonna have to do this pretty much all my life to make sure I’m kinda happy with my body” and then my mind swirls into things like how am I going to get my body back after having kids some day but that’s just an example of how dramatic I can be at times.
Anyway, for a while now I’ve wanted to invest in some quality gym clothes from actual work out brands instead of wearing my same old Primark or Vietnam spesh ones … if you know me you know what I mean! So for my birthday this year my wonderful boyfriend surprised me with some different items that honestly I’m in love with, I truly feel ten times more confident in the gym when I’m wearing these new pieces, it’s so crazy how you can tell the difference in quality straight away, I don’t know if I’ll be able to go back to high street store bits, this might be an expensive do. So I thought I would show you guys my new lil pieces and I will put links in as always …
With Valentines Day just around the corner I thought I would try and give you guys and gals some make up inspiration. Now you don’t have to be going out with your SO to dress up on Friday the 14th, whether you’re out with your friends, family or just wanna rock a different vibe all together, this look will hopefully serve you well. Let me know if you like it and if you’ve created any Valentines looks then make sure you share them with me on here.
Hey everyone, so I recently uploaded a make up look post where I played around with some eyeshadow and it ended up being this Candy Floss type of vibe. Well, I really enjoyed getting back into creating make up looks so thought I would have a go at another! My inspiration for this one was a sunset and I hope you like it, like before I’ve linked all products used to create the look.
So I’m sure you’ve all heard of the site that’s on almost everyone’s lips called OnlyFans? If you haven’t let me just fill you in, so basically the site describes itself as a way for content creators to interact with their followers who are willing to pay a bit of dolla for their posts/videos etc. Now on the OnlyFans site it says that anyone can join and post things like tutorials, selfies and anything else along those lines, however what it’s become notorious for is women and men uploading “nudes” and sort of explicit content to earn some coin when they get subscribers … are you still following?
I haven’t done a beauty post in what feels like forever, so I thought I would show you guys a look I created recently and let you know some of the products I used on it. I’m obsessed with creative eyeshadow looks, I must follow hundreds of Instagram accounts just to watch tutorials on how these magicians come up with ideas. Now I’m by far no means any good at this sort of stuff and definitely don’t claim to be, this is just a bit of fun and I thought I would share the finished product and some deets with you all. Make sure you let me know what you think!!
