I’m a Vegetarian

Hey lovelies, how are we all?

So something that I wanted to write a little about is my recent decision to give up meat and become a Vegetarian, don’t worry this isn’t going to be one of those posts where I urge you to do the same and tell you all about the animal industry, it’s just a life choice I’ve made and wanted to share it with you all.

I had been toying with the idea of giving up meat for a while, I think my guilty conscious just caught up with me because every time we would drive past a lamb or a cow I would just feel awful, not to mention Martin used to work on a farm so has filled me in with all the ins and outs, which breaks my heart. Like I said I don’t want this to be a pushy blog post so if you’d like any info from me about what goes on then just let me know and I’ll do a separate post.

It’s Me

Hey everyone, how are you? I hope you’re all doing great!

So I know I’ve been a little MIA for a few weeks and for that I’m so sorry, I mean not that you’re all sat there asking yourself “where’s Carolanne these days?” Anyway just in case you might be a smidge interested why I’ve been absent from the blogging world I thought I would just do a quick post filling you in.

90’s Cartoons Inspired Make Up Looks

Hey guys, I hope you’re all safe and well!

Recently over on my instagram I’ve been uploading a few make up looks and just getting a bit creative using cartoons from my childhood as inspiration. I’ve bloody loved doing these so much, they’ve just taken me back to being a kid and not gonna lie, I kinda wish I could just sit and re watch them over and over again.

Anyway I thought I would share a couple of the looks with you on here to see what you thought and if you think I should have a go at doing some more! Let me know in the comments.

How I Style My Curly Hair

Hey guys, how are you all? Today I thought I would do a lil post sharing with you how I style my naturally curly hair. If you don’t know I only started embracing my natural hair about nine months ago, before that I straightened my lil mop, I wont go into the why and things, I wrote a post about it all a while ago so I’ll link that in within this sentence.

Honestly my styling is not long and its not particularly impressive but I wish I would have seen articles or whatever like this when I was younger about curly hair, because maybe I wouldn’t have hated it so much, so if sharing this encourages another naturally curly gal to brave her curls then I’m here for it.

Giving Up The Coffee

Hello ladies and gents, today’s post is gonna be another little chatty one so I hope you don’t mind but I wanted to just talk a little bit about my recent decision to give up the cawwwfee (please tell me you read that in a Jersey accent).

This might seem a little boring for some so I don’t mind if you want to head out but I thought it could maybe help others so I’m gonna chat about it anyway. I’ve enjoyed drinking coffee since I was about sixteen, I’d have a cup on a morning most days whether it was before uni or work or just to start off my day, I didn’t really find that it ‘kept me awake’ or get that buzz that some people drink it for, I dunno maybe I was immune ‘cos I’d drunk it for so many years but I enjoyed the taste. Over the years I’ve had a few spells where I’d give it up for a few month’s just because I found I was drinking too much of it and didn’t want it to stain my teeth or it was giving me headaches but then I would find myself slipping back, especially in the Summer months because Iced Caramel Frappes from McDonalds are literally the best!

Taste The Rainbow Eye Look

Here I am coming to you with another makeup/eyeshadow look, I hope you’re not getting bored of me doing these because it’s something that I’m really enjoying doing at the moment. Like I’ve said before, I’m not claiming to be an MUA or even remotely good at makeup but it’s just a lil fun we’re having over here.

For this look I was inspired by Erin Rose who is an insanely talented make up influencer that I follow on Instagram.

Max & More Palette

If you’re from the UK then I’m pretty sure you’re familiar with a shop called Home Bargains, if you’re from anywhere else then I’ll give you a little summery, it’s basically heaven … no I’m joking but it is an amazing shop that sells literally everything you can think of at super cheap prices, their face mask range is amazing.

Anyway, recently I was doing a little shop there and was browsing their make up shelves when I came across a face palette, I’ve tried a few of the lip liners and lip sticks which have been great so thought I’d give it a go. The packaging look similar to a Makeup Revolution one, pretty simple and sleek with the bronze writing and the inside had everything you could think of for your face, blush, highlight, bronzer and powder, so you best believe I popped it in my basket, plus it was like £2 or something along those lines. Don’t get me wrong I don’t expect crazy pigment or durability from it but you never know these days, those cheap brands are really showing off.

Testing Out New Superdrug Makeup

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!

Tango Ice Blast Look

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.

Mini Primark Haul

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 …
