Loose yourself to find yourself

Where have I been? I recently suffered from a quarter life crisis. People think the 20s are easy but I think they're quite hard. You've just finished college and going into uni. You're still in the teen mindset but everyone expects you to be an adult and take on responsibilities. I have no idea who I am or what I want to be but the sands of the hour glass of life are running out. It was so much easier when I was a child as I know I changed my mind a lot about who I wanted to be and I didn't seem to care. But now that I'm not a child anymore life has suddenly hit me in the face like a frying pan. All of a sudden every decision I make matters. And I have to find my passion in life. I hear people don't find themselves until they hit 30, which makes me feel better I guess, but it still doesn't help when I'm surrounded by people who've already found their life's purpose. 

My personal quote; 
"Not everyone in life is lucky enough to start off with a yellow brick road that guides them straight to Emerald City. When you think your path is set its really easy to get distracted by a manic white rabbit and fall down the rabbit hole causing you to go off course. Which way? this way! right way! wrong way! what way? no way! The cross roads of life. Have patience and never stop searching for your individual path. Even if you end up hitting a dead end and have to turn direction you'll eventually find your way. Sometimes you have to loose yourself to find yourself. 

I was on Sertraline last year so I could overcome my depression. Life felt like a complete and utter train wreck. Every decision I made felt like it was the wrong one. I just gave up hope. But after loosing myself I realised every experience in life is a learning process. Cut out everyone and everything temporarily so you can focus on yourself. Reinvent yourself. Eventually like a derailed train I was able to get back on track and suddenly I didn't feel so lost, I felt like every decision I was making was benefiting me and no one else, because we are under such pressure to do not whats right for us but whats right for others and how they see us. People pleasing is draining as you will never be able to please everyone. The sooner you realise not to give a shit about what people think and just live your own life and do what makes you happy, you will find your yellow brick road. 

My passion has been writing, always has and always will be. It comes naturally to me. Some people are born to paint I was born to write. Nothing like painting a picture in a readers mind through the use of extended metaphors. Just like an artist paints a masterpiece on a canvas. I create my masterpiece through words. 

I have more respect for people who are on that endless journey to find themselves then those who settle for a job they hate like a bankers job all because they think it will earn them respect and good money. But really they are on autopilot and not actually living life. Do what makes you happy, if you're expected to be a doctor but you'd rather escape to the Caribbean scooping ice cream for a living, do it! You are responsible for your own happiness, your destiny. Don't let anyone ever make you feel inferior. 

I had to hit rock bottom in order to realise every cloud has a silver lining because once you hit rock bottom the only place you can go from there is up.

Motivation for Monday - Haters gonna hate, Shake it off

                                              Ordinary Bitches on High Horses...

                                            Be extraordinary on a Pegasus

Just a little motto I came up with. Don't let haters stop you from doing your thing. People that think they're smarter, better and look down at you are just ordinary, if they're going to be on a high horse then at least make it a Pegasus because otherwise they're irrelevant. God is my only judge. In the words of Taylor Swift 'Shake it off...' continue with what you set out to do because success is the best revenge. Otherwise if you listen to the haters you will only fall behind and watch as they build their career when you could have been busy building yours. No dream is hard to follow as after all a dream is a wish your heart makes when your fast asleep. You just got to have faith. Reach for the stars

When a ship gets a hole in it, it starts to take in water and eventually sinks. The same thing happens when you let negativity get to you, it will eat away at you until you crumble. Just think of a wonderful thought, any happy little thought... I love singing the sound of music; Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles and warm woollen mittens...and then I don't feel so bad.

Handbag of the Day - Beige Dior Mini

I have my Louis Vuitton's, my Michael Kors, My Gucci and my Longchamp. I was in desperate need of some Dior it's been missing from my life. So when I received this beauty for my 21st Birthday I was over the moon! This is the Christian Dior Mini in Beige I absolutely love this. It may look small but I can assure you it can carry all your daily essentials. A compact Mary Poppins bags is definitely what I need. No more looking like I'm trekking it up Mount Everest with my oversized bags. Although oversized is considered chic, I'm all about simplicity.

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette Review

Colours (from left to right); Strange, Dust, Burnout, Limit, Buzz, Trick, Nooner, Liar, Factory, Mugshot, Darkside, Blackheart.
So I've had my eye on the Naked 3 Palette for a while now, it has been on my makeup wish list. After dropping many hints to my sister, I think she got it as I couldn't be more obvious :P, when it came to unwrap my presents on Christmas Day my face lit up like a Christmas tree as this baby was there.
Usually I hate makeup palettes because I only ever wear 3/20 colours as I only like blacks, browns and golds. The rest for me like blues, pinks, greens, reds etc are hookeresque. I mean unless I am a runway model that can pull off a funky makeup look or a clown I will never feel comfortable wearing those shades. So I tend to stick to quads. At the moment I am loving Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow in 208 Tisse Gabrielle by Chanel. That Quad is just gorgeous.
Anyhow Naked 1 and Naked 2 just didn't really interest me, but when I saw Urban Decay had released a Naked 3 this particular baby drew me right in. For starters I am a sucker when it comes to anything gold, literally like a magpie, so it was a no brainer I just simply had to get my hands on this palette. Thanks to my sister it's all mine.
The Naked 3 comes with 12 beautiful shades. They're all rose hued neutrals exclusive to the Naked 3. You have a choice ranging from matte, pearly and metallic from pale to the deepest black. My personal favourite is blackheart its the black one with the red micro glitter - reminds me of Dorthy's Ruby Red Slippers from the Wizzard of Oz.
They're very pigmented meaning they stay true to their colour and don't fade out like cheap eye shadows do. Because of this you don't need a primer as they don't crease and stay on pretty much the whole day. But I would recommend a primer anyhow for absolute perfection.
If you cant be bothered to splurge on a primer the good news is this palette comes with a weeks worth of Urban Decay Primer Potion, another thing I wanted to try out. Killed 2 birds with 1 stone there. Actually make that 3, I forgot to mention the double sided crease and blending brush that's included.
for £40 it is definitely worth it I mean I paid almost £40 for my Chanel Quad which comes with only 4 colours, here you get 12! you deffo get what you pay for. After all its an investment. Would you rather 40 shitty eye shadows from the 99p store or 12 beautiful ones that will last you years as a little goes a long way with these. I'm all about quality over quantity.
Also lets take a moment to appreciate the pretty packaging. Rose Gold! say no more.

Its Beginning to look a lot like Christmas...At Lush

So my Santa app tells me it is officially 76 days till Christmas. I actually cant wait!! Such a happy, magical time of the year. Nothing I love more then Christmas shopping for other people. Its the season of giving. But this time I thought I'd treat myself to an early Christmas present for me :). Walking past Lush, just thought I'd peak through the window and omg I could hear the hallelujah chorus. Their Christmas collection was already out. In October? it hasn't even been halloween yet, looks like Christmas came early for me! woo woo. I was in such a trance with the Christmas music, the Christmas scents and all the glitter I couldn't help but say yes to everything the sales assistant suggested. RIP Bank Account. If I'm going to live like a pauper till my next pay day might as well do it smelling good. There are many more things I plan to pick up this is not the entire Christmas collection maybe only a fraction. 

 All these smells just bring back Christmas memories ahhh. Firstly a Face and Body cleanser called 'Buche De Noel' Which smells exactly like Christmas cake. Marzipaaan. Actually contains fruit and brandy. My skin has never felt softer. 

The Holly Go Lightly Bubble bar is the ultimate Christmas scent. Spicy but with a fresh undertone i.e the holly. It doesn't picture but it is literally hugeee you can get multiple baths out of it. 

Couldnt help but throw in the Sparkly Pumpkin as halloween is coming near. This smell definitely sums up my Autumn. Warm and Cosy Pumpkin Pie. 

Starlight Star Bright Bath Melt. The name is self explanatory, just look at it, It doesn't really smell Christmasy, more like lemon skittles but it suits the product because you feel awake just looking at it so of course a energetic zingy citrus smell is perfect. 

So White bath bomb when you look at it looks so simple but never judge a book by its cover. Use it and find out for yourself. But also the smell is such a signature of Lush they trialed it into a shower gel for one day only but the shower gel was so popular they decided to keep it as part of their christmas collection. I am happy they did. Apple. Just Apple. But so amazing its the first scent I smell through my bag. Overpowering in a good way. 

Snow Fairy Sparkle massage bar. Just rub it into your skin and watch it melt. Not only will you sparkle like a fairy you will smell like one too. Snow Fairy along with So White is my all time favourite smell from Lush. Its not a classic Christmas scent but for Lush it is. Just a warm cozy bubblegum candy floss scent 

Saving the best till last First Snow A little bottle of sparkling dust powder which you put on over moisturiser or in your hair and it literally makes you look live youve been snowed on in a good way. Smells just like the Starlight Star Bright bath melt. 

I also picked up some shower gels along the way. So White and Snow Fairy need no introduction. But Can I mention Hot Toddy a new scent for this year. This is Christmas in a bottle. Smells like mulled wine Cinamon, Cloves, Ginger, Spice. This will definitely be my favourite shower gel to bath in closer to the months of Christmas. 

Of course I also picked up Its Raining Men because a shower gel that is 40% honey, and I love me some honey, how can I say no. If I could be a Disney Character i'd be Winnie the Pooh just walking around with my hand stuck in a jar of honey all day.
