Hitting 100 Followers…

Hi people,

I don’t know how to say any of this without sounds too cringey and sentimental. The pretty much last week (Tuesday) I hit 100 followers. I begun this journey in December 2016(practically January 2017) and while this amount of followers may not impress any of you, I am beyond proud of myself. I finally plucked up the courage to start a crazy new hobby not knowing where I would end up. Some days I practically felt like banging my head at the wall and others I was overcome by happiness. For me 100 followers, it is iconic and a major landmark into my journey into blogging. I never though I would reach this!! Even though I been doing it for 1 year and basically 4 months, I feel like I’m still at the start of my adventure. I was never expecting big amount of followers. I was however expecting 1 follower and that was it. I started tracking the following count after moving to WordPress. I want to thank everyone who took the time to follow me. I know it might sound much but you have made one girl very very happy today. I may not have the most views or comments or likes. I really want to thank all of you but I don’t know how to contact you. If you’re reading this and was already following me, I LOVE YOU SO MUCH. I’m going to shout you out below. If you see this and you are following, drop me a comment.

Anyway, here’s to the next 100. X

Here’s a personal thank you to these 100:

Soph X Revolution Eyeshadow Palette

Hi I am back today with a different post to normal. I thought I would do a step by step guide to creating a eye look with the Soph Eye Palette by Revolution. I am by no means an Make-Up Artist so it something is wrong or different to you, don’t think your wrong as your probably right but this way works for me.

FIRST STEP:

Take an eye primer/concealer of your choice or skip the step if you prefer not to use one. Blend it on your eyelid. You can extend from the brow to the lash line if you are going for a full glam look. If you like to set the eyelid, you can take any powder of your choice or use the shade ‘penguin’ from the palette.

SECOND STEP:

Now using the actual palette, you are going to create the transition colour in the crease. I like to use the shade ‘pancake’ to start with and apply it to the crease.  Make sure it’s blended fully to apply the next shade. I then would take the shade ‘iced coffee’ and blend through the crease.

THIRD STEP:

This step is where the pop of colour comes into place. Take the colour ‘peaches’ and once again place through the crease and be sure to b l e n d! Afterwards, take the colour ‘danger’ as this is quite an intense colour if you are not comfortable apply little you can always build up the colour. Apply this to the outer v and blend!!!

FINAL STEP:

On the actual lid where the colour ‘danger’ ends apply concealer or eye primer base. Then take the shade ‘pink champagne’ Make sure you blend danger over a bit of pink champagne to make it look more natural.

EXTRAS:

You could add eyeliner to the lashline and to the waterline.

You could apply highlighter to the inner corner to the eye.

You could apply lashes/mascara.

Thanks for reading and be sure to send me the pictures of your eye look if you have attempted it.

SOME FAVOURITES OF MINE…

Hi guys, I am back today. I’m sorry I have been away again but I have been planning several blog posts that are time consuming and I don’t know what to put. I didn’t want to miss another upload so I thought I would do a favourites because why not? Here we go…

FAVOURITE SKINCARE:

Soap and Glory Vitamin C Facial Wash.

I don’t know when I purchased this maybe 2 months ago. Anyway I absoultely love this. I use it when I’m in the shower and wash it away with a ‘face towel’. One of the bonuses of buying this product is that it is for all skin types. Yes you with the oily skin can use it. Yes you with the normal skin can use it. Yes you with the dry skin can use it. Everyone is winning. If you fancy a facial wash, definitely consider purchasing this one.

FAVOURITE MAKEUP:

SOPH X Revolution Eyeshadow Palette

This palette is no doubt one of the best drugstore palette I have ever ever tried. With a combination of matte/shimmers shades, it has a colour for everyone. If I had to use a single eyeshadow palette for the rest of my life, it would be this one. For me, I could use very single colour in here. Thanks Soph for making this stunning palette. In next week’s post, you’ll get to read about my go to eye makeup for this palette and to possibly recreate it.

FAVOURITE YOUTUBER:

One of my all time favourite youtubers would be Anastasia Kingsnorth. I must admit I do not watch every one of her main channel videos but her vlogs always draw me in. I love her love for her family, friends and subscribers. She comes across as one of the genuine youtubers and I sincerely hope she is one. She has the most amazing fashion sense. I love how even those she has high end clothes yet she still shops at Primark. I feel like Youtube has really changed since I religiously started watching it in like 2013/14. I feel like most Youtubers who are easily recognised with a backing of subscribers have to wear Gucci etc  all the time. I don’t want to offend youtubers because they have worked hard but I feel like some youtubers have forgot where they came from. I might do a seperate post on this. Also I am not aiming this at any one in particular.

FAVOURITE BLOGGER:

Possibly one of my favourite bloggers at the minute would be @launchinglifestyle , @ameliaaa.___ or @bethxlouisexxx. I have different reasons for liking all of them.The ‘@’ are for their instagram username. Chloe aka @launching lifestyle is so sweet especially when we were coming up with a collab idea. Her blog is so good with her photography and how she words things. She also hit 100 followers on her blog recently so I am really proud of her. Amelia is one of my favourite people/bloggers. I started my blog in December 2016 and she started hers the next year in 2017. She is someone who continues to support me regardless of my projects and for that, I am eternally grateful. She’s been ill recently so if you are reading this get well soon. Finally, Beth is a blogger who I have been following for ages. I like her as she is brutally honest whether it is on her Instagram stories, twitter or her blogs. She’s not afraid to give her opinion from her exs psycho mothers  to brands. She’s so relatable in her dressing gown and her mum is so nice as well.

FAVOURITE SONG:

My favourite song at the moment would have to be ‘Feel it still’ by Portugal. The Man or ‘Paradise’ by George Ezra. I can’t really describe this section much but can say that you have to check them out like right now if you haven’t.

What are your favourites?

I’M BACK+A MINI Q&A?!?!

Oh my god! This feels so weird. Me posting on here. But hey guys I’m back after a well needed break. I’ve missed you guys so so much. Let me explain; after the new year, I realised I wanted to just take a short break off from blogging as I was feeling pressured to post every week. This break has told me that it is perfectly ok to have a week off. Remember YOURSELF come before anything. This break has made me determined to continue with blogging. Also read right to the very end if you want to be on my who to follow page or if you want to update your info for it.

Now you may ask ‘What have you been doing in this last month or so?’, well nothing really. All I have been doing is getting unhealthily addicted to Gossip Girl. I am determined to finish it before the end of this school year (I’m still on Season 3 shhh). You’re also going to be very surprised at the next sentence – I have finally got into revising. Thank God. I also noticed my science grade SLOWLY going up which I am so so proud. I’ve also spent the month of January becoming annoyed at the school system. I have really high target grade and they all say I’m below where I should be because they expect me to be an 8 (equivalent to A*). They go on about peer pressure but the only pressure I’ve experienced is teacher pressure. I know they want to achieve well but it really knocks your confidence when they say your below target repeatedly. I also there was my birthday which I thoroughly enjoyed surrounded by friends and family.

I don’t really have any more to say but I’m going to answer a few questions from the people that reached out to me…

@thebatchofbeauty asked: ” What’s your fav thing to blog about and why?’ Follow her here.

My favourite thing to blog about is anything I am 100% passionate about. I find blog posts related to my opinions easiest to do because I tend to get passionate about. One of my favourite blog post was a collab (click here for it). I was able to express my opinion and have a different perspective. The girl I collaborated with understood me and what I stood for and we bounced off of each other(not literally haha). However, I do love a good makeup post etc.

@_designerworldstudio_ asked: “Why did you join blogging?” Follow her here.

I joined blogging for a little adventure on the web. I was to scared for Youtube so I naturally came to blogging. Blogging has been the best decision I have ever made. I made friends. Some obviously don’t stick around and you lose contact but some have stayed. I met amazing people through collbabs. Blogging makes me happy.

@ameliaaa.____ asked: “If you had children, what would you name them?” Follow her here.

I never really thought about it to be honest. I know I would like 2 children preferably a boy and a girl(I wouldn’t mind if they weren’t). I just know I wouldn’t be able to pull off unusual and creative name. I would stick to a traditional/common name.

Thanks for reading this. I’m glad I’m back and everything.

2018 Resolutions

Hi guys,

When you are reading this, it will be 2018 and I am currently writing this in 2017. Weird right. In 2018, I’m going to hopefully stick to them resolutions as hopefully they will benefit me.

  1. Make new blogging friends.
  2. Lose weight (something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. Like I’m not fat but I’m certainly not at my ideal weight.)
  3. Read a whole lot more.
  4. Post something on my blog at least once a week.
  5. Stay organised.
  6. Revise more and make revision material from stuff I’ve learned.
  7. Like/comment on other people’s blog post and youtube.
  8. Let my nails grow.
  9. Keep my room tidy.
  10. Enjoy the year (My last full year till them dreaded GSCE’s.)

I will hopefully keep you updated throughout the year. I’m sorry this is not a lot of writing but there isn’t really much to say. However, I am planning a q and a and so any questions would be helpful. I also have a sarahah account. You can give feedback or ask question. Any questions will be answered on my Instagram or any upcoming Q+A. Remember to follow my instagram.

1 Year Blogging…?!?!

Hi Guys,

As you reading this, it will have been a year since I officially started my blog. I have loved every single minute of it and I am taking the time today to reflect on my journey.

Where my blog has been?

In this year, my blog has had 2 homes. The first was Blogger and the second is WordPress. Both are individually good and I am happy with what both services provided for me. You can see the process in this previous blog post: WHY I MOVED FROM BLOGGER TO WORDPRESS?

My blog content

My blog isn’t as fancy as some out there. For me, I like the writing part better than the photography. Hopefully in the upcoming years, I can work on the photography more but for right now, I am happy to solely write away. From my first post, The length has expanded in a good way because quite frankly it was diabolical. When I transferred all my old blog posts, I stupidly transferred that dreadful post over. If you want a good laugh/cringe,  then hear it is… (ORIGINALLY POSTED 31/12/2016).

Blogging Drama

From what I can remember, I do not believe to have been in any blogging drama but I have complained about other bloggers and their stereotypes (let me have a look to see if I can find it) A LITTLE CHAT : 20/05/17.  Basically I was annoyed with a statement made with new bloggers. I got into drama recently but it had nothing to do with blogging.

I can’t think of anymore categories so I ‘m going to round this blog post off here. Thank you to anyone who has supported me throughout this entire year. When I am concluding it, it is the 31st December 2017 and it has been a year of blogging. This whole blogging journey is like a roller coaster and I never want to get off. Thanks to the many people who have supported me. I can’t wait for next year to make so many more blogging friends. I have a few ideas which I want to take off next year.

I am planning a q and a and so any questions would be helpful. I also have a sarahah account. You can give feedback or ask question (abloggerx.sarahah.com). Any questions will be answered on my Instagram or any upcoming Q+A. Remember to follow my instagram.
