My Thoughts on having "Perfect" Social Media Post's

Over the last few weeks I've came across so many different posts and tweets about how we all want to be like others and how we aim to live that so called "perfect Instagram life" and I don't think this could be any truer, however, it is our fault, we brainwash ourselves sometimes we our the only people that can change our lives so why are we feeling sorry for ourselves, I say we because I myself am one of those people, I follow hundreds of different people on all kinds of social media platforms because I enjoy seeing what they have to post but remember no one is forcing me to follow them I make that decision, so what gives me the right to sit and compare myself to them and feel sorry for myself. If the page is only going to make me hate myself why would I even waste my time following them, we choose how we view ourselves we choose everything, we are the ones in control.

Instagram and other social medias are amazing apps they allow people to show various fractions of their days but remember people choose what they want to post and what they want to post will more than likely be something positive that has happened to them or maybe it was a good makeup day who knows but they do it because they feel good about themselves and they want to share those happy moments so that they can look back and reminisce on the days at the park or the days they had that perfect insta ice-cream or the days they felt they felt comfortable and happy with how they looked, we only share what we want to share so why should you go out of your way to create the perfect picture, tweet or video, post what you want because that's what everyone else seems to be doing, who cares if you have one follower or a million as long as you are happy with your own content then no one else should even come into consideration before you hit that publish button.

I am a 17 year old and sure I don't have much life experience yet but overtime I've learnt to not judge anyone, not even people that you think are close to you, everyone has their secrets, everyone has problems, everyone has challenges that they are facing on a daily basis, its important to remember that you do not know everything, even if you think you do. Learning this was one of the best things that could have ever happened to me because it allowed me to rethink how I evaluate people and also how I see myself, comparing others instagrams to my own made me feel like crap but the sooner I realised that I'm only seeing one picture out of a 24 hour day my brain began to work differently, so should yours.

If everyone was the same the world would be pretty dam boring, so post whatever the hell you want good or bad there is no such thing as perfection as long as you are happy then nothing else matters.

Revision Tips

The end of April is near which means that exam month is nearly here:( When I was younger May and June use to be my favourite months in school as we never did much but that all changed the moment I entered 4th year I'm now lower 6th and the hatred is still there, I have three A Level Exams in May and if I'm honest I haven't even thought about studying yet, stupid I know.



So I thought that today I would create a revision tips post not only for myself but also for anyone else who  is in need of it, its about time that I get myself organised and ready to smash these exams and if your reading this your more than likely in the same position.

My First Summer Outfit Post

At the moment I am currently off for my Easter break and to my advantage the weather has been incredible, this has made being off a lot more exciting. The other day I decided to go for walk with a few of my friends, purely because it was not worth sitting in, I believe hat getting lost is all part of the adventure and this is certainly what happened we found ourselves in the perfect summer environment surrounded by nothing but trees. I loved it, a lot. However, I wanted to write my first outfit post for you guys as I was really in love with it.




Jeans
I actually purchased these jeans at the start of the month and they were featured in my "Top 3 New  Buys" post which you can check out Here . These jeans are absolutely gorgeous and I am so in love with them, I feel like they are perfect for the summer nights and they match with pretty much anything which is an added bonus. The jeans cost £30 but they came from New Look so I know they will last me forever, totally with it.

Top
I have had this top for a good few months now and every time I wear it I feel like I'm seeing it for the first time, its such a casual yet effective top which can be worn along with many things, but the colour and the style is what draws me to it this was also purchased in New Look and it cost £10, amazing.

Shoes
I received these shoes as a Christmas present as I had been constantly asking to them prior to Christmas but I still love them, they are super comfortable and they look amazing, I have worn these pretty much everyday since Christmas and they still look brand new, impressive I know.  However, the pictures above do them no justice as I did climb through muck, oops.  These shoes were around £65 but I really trust Nike and know that there shoes are always long lasting and amazing quality.

Jacket
My Jacket came from Primark Last August, I immediately loved it, denim jackets are one of my favourite things to wear throughout the year as they look good with pretty much everything so when I saw this pink coloured one I was in my element, I just had to have it.  My black belt also came from Primark.

Testing Superdrug's Colour Hairspray

I am a very open-minded person and I LOVE to experiment with new things, over the last few days I have had a sudden urge to dye my hair blue and I mean bright blue, however that wont be possible till the summer due to school, however, I didn't let that stop me. I am currently off for Easter Break and I decided to go on the hunt for some wash out dyes. Superdrug saved me. This is the first store that I tried and they didn't let me down, I didn't want to buy from a typical brand that I knew would definitely work, I wanted to be risky and experiment with a brand I have never tried before so I decided on purchasing Superdrug's Colour Hairspray.

My All Time Favourite Highlighters

Highlighters are without a doubt one of my all time favourite products.... ever.  They have practically taken over my entire life.  I always use a fan brush to  apply my highlighter along my brow bone, tip of my nose and cheek bone. I have five highlighters which I adore, I honestly could not chose a favourite, so I thought I would share them all with you.

Smash box LA Lights Blendable Lip And Cheeck Colour Stick Hollywood and Highlight (£25)

This highlighter is absolutely amazing to apply even before a highlighter powder or just by itself, it gives an amazing  natural glow and is really long lasting, the stick is really easy to use and the product is super easy to blend out on top of your foundation I would normally use a beauty blender and just dab the product on to my skin.

My Favourite Make-Up Brushes

I feel like Make-Up Brushes do not get as much recognition as they use to when in fact they are still as amazing as ever.... well in my opinion. I understand that make-up application is such a developing thing in this day and age and we constantly find new ways to apply  make-up but I always trust my brushes, I feel like they will never let me down and I always know that it is money well spent.

The Top 10 places I want to visit

I have such a long list of things I want to do and places I want to visit within the next few years, I have always loved the idea of being able to travel the world and one day I will, but for now I'll continue on dreaming about these places. There is so many different countries in the world that all have something different to offer so it was really difficult for me to narrow it down to ten, but I did.





1. Los Angeles- This is without a doubt my top choice, I have always loved everything about LA it just looks absolutely incredible and has been at the top of my list for a long  time.

2.Maldives- Everything about the Maldives is just amazing, it honestly is one of the most gorgeous places I have ever seen.

3.London- This is one of my favourite cities in the world and even though I have yet to visit it I definitely want to live there when I am older, I just love the idea of the whole hustle and bustle of the place.

4.Bali-  wow I have far too much to say about this place but ill keep it short and sweet I simply adore the look of everything in Bali and am really excited to visit it in a few years time.

5.Cape Town, South Africa - This without a doubt gets my 5th place in the list, South Africa is somewhere I have always wanted to visit and I swear Cape Town is just calling my name.

6.New York- I feel like New York is on nearly on every single person's list of places they want to go travelling in so I don't even need to explain why but I'll give you one word, Shopping.

7.Fiji- How could you not want to visit this country it is full of the most relaxing and gorgeous beaches I have ever seen.

8.Dubai- This place looks absolutely incredible I mean the weather, the buildings everything is unbelievable.

9.Orlando, Florida-  I mean Disney is all I really have to say here, I have been to Disney Land Paris twice and it was two of my favourite holidays, I feel like you can never go wrong with Disney it is a place full of adventure and I have a lot of love for it.

10. Iceland- I purely want to go here just so that I can go to the Blue Lagoon, can you blame me?

Make sure you let me know some of the places that you want to visit in the future.

How Much Does My Everyday Makeup Cost?

I have seen a lot of other bloggers doing this recently and I thought it would be interesting to actually take a look at the cost of my own everyday makeup. I actually am very excited to sit and work this out as makeup products are without a doubt what the majority of my money is spent on, oops.

For this post I decided to add the prices of the makeup that I would always reach for when doing a simple and natural look on a daily basis. I decided not to add the cost of any of my makeup brushes in as I feel like that's a whole different story itself.

My Top 3 New Buys

Throughout the last year I have really struggled to find clothes which I really love and would feel comfortable in, for some strange reason the clothing this year just has not been for me, I can't exactly pin point why, however, a few days ago I headed to town and discovered so many new things which have completely changed my entire perspective of shopping this year. I did only purchase a small amount of things as I want to save up for all of the summer clothes because they are normally my favs.

So below is the top 3 item's that I purchased, I am absolutely in love with all three items and cant wait to get wearing them, ill leave the links below, if there is any new clothing items that you recently bought  make sure to let me know x

Bralets 

 These bralets are really in style lately and I totally understand why, they are the most comfortable bralets I have ever worn and they totally pull hundreds of different outfits together.

Floral Mesh Top

 When I discovered the bralets I needed to immediately purchase a mesh top so that I can wear them with and this one happened to catch my eye on Instagram, I just love it. I find that this top looks and sits amazing on anyone and it is really flattering as the ends of the sleeves sort of just fall down below your arms which is so aesthetically pleasing.

Denim Jeans

As soon as I walked into New Look I was overwhelmed with happiness, the clothing was just out of this world and really brought a smile to my face, the first thing that I noticed was without a doubt these jeans, I mean how could you not love them?. I have never really been a fan of the whole floral print thing but these jeans won me over within a second.
