Being a Morning Person

Most people shudder at the thought of getting up at 7am, every day. In reality, getting up early every morning, is really good for your body and mind. I must firstly point out that I'm no health expert, my tips in this post are simply from my own experiences.

CV Building // Personal Details

As a twenty year old undergraduate, I feel like I understand the importance of a well structured CV. I have been in employment since 2011 and have had SO many interviews with SO many different companies. I thought I would create a new blog series all about CV building because they can be a pain to start but once you've got a first draft sorted it's really easy to keep them updated as the years go on.

The Nude Lip

Thanks to Kylie Jenner, every girl wants that perfect nude lip. Unfortunately, I can't run out and buy the exact lipstick she wears right now, so, I came up with my own take on the brown nude shade, she loves to wear. I'm kind of on a mission to not buy any more makeup unless I absolutely 100% need that product. So, I turned to my lipstick collection. As a teenager, for some reason I bought ALL the pink and fuchsia shades... Why?! I have no idea!

First of all, when I thought about trying a nude lip, I went for a pinky nude... But, it just washed me out. I literally looked ill. I've now taken on the browny-nudey lip trend and this is what it looks like. I like it. It makes me feel v. sophisticated and v. Kardashian/Jenner. I used Rimmel 1000 Kisses in 700 Nothing But Nude  to almost line the lips and then used Maybelline Nude Lipstick in 742 Luminous Beige on top to add the brown shade.

I think this has worked really well. What are your opinions on the brown/nude lip trend?

Makeup Bag Staples

Recently, I've been getting deep and personal with you all with meaningful lifestyle posts (which I love doing by the way) but, I think it's about time I update you with what I LOVE to use on my face. That's correct, I'm letting you all know about what are my must have staples to carry in my makeup bag. I am not the best at makeup, but I have such an addiction to beauty products. That Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette is 100% next on my list... Next payday maybe? Seriously, I should stop the spending when it comes to lipsticks, nail varnish and of course, my beloved concealer obsession... Yikes!

Do you know the question - what makeup products would you take to a desert island with you? Well these are mine, there are several... Don't judge me!

"You Should Eat Less," says Nurse

I thought I'd share something personal with you all this week. It kind of saddened me but also inspired me to keep thinking the way I do. My parents have brought me up to think that I am beautiful no matter what size or shape I am, and thanks to them I have always had that in mind. I've never been one to obsess over diets such as Weight Watchers, Slimming World or Herbalife and I never knew how obsessed people were with weight until I was around 15-18 years old. To this day, it still shocks me how people are obsessed with losing weight, even when they look great the way they are! As a pre-teen I struggled with bullying because of my weight and early puberty. I can remember being in year eight and boys in my class teasing me asking if I was pregnant... I can also remember begging my parents to let me stay at home so I didn't have to face these bullies the next day. It's sad how much of an impact memories like this have on, not only myself, but plenty of other people in the world. As I'm sure, I'm not alone in having an experience like that.

The Importance of Self-Appreciation

Self-appreciation is the quality of having respect for yourself. I believe that this is so important and definitely needs to be talked about more. In school, I was taught a lot about how to have healthy relationships, how to treat people nicely and how to act correctly in social situations... However, I cannot think of a time where I was told to appreciate myself and to look after me. The last year or so, I really have come to terms with the fact that you must love yourself before you can begin to care for anyone else. If you're not happy with yourself, and how you act/look, you'll never trust anyone enough when they compliment you. You know the feeling of doubt? Stop doubting every positive thing people say to you. Not everyone is out to get you. Okay, in fairness some people are just mean but most do genuinely mean they love your skirt and the way you did your hair today.
