Primark Logo Tee

I visited the local Primark last weekend, primarily because I’d watched a few Youtube hauls and was most intrigued with the beauty products on offer. As I made my way to the back of the store toward the beauty section, I walked past the stand with lots of logo tees. I felt a little overwhelmed and decided to grab the butterfly tee with the wording “Forever In My Heart 1998”. I love butterflies, so it ticked that box at the very least. I decided to size up as I pictured myself wearing it with boyfriend jeans and trainers (both of which I have yet to purchase). The tee feels decent considering I only paid £2.50! Yes, £2.50. I’m now questioning why I didn’t just buy more?! Continue reading “Items I’m Loving This Week #3”

Starting My Blog

Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.

We are all born mad. Some remain so.

Dance first. Think later. It’s the natural order.

Where I am, I don’t know, I’ll never know, in the silence you don’t know, you must go on, I can’t go on, I’ll go on.

Nothing is funnier than unhappiness, I grant you that. Yes, yes, it’s the most comical thing in the world.

You’re on earth. There’s no cure for that.

Every word is like an unnecessary stain on silence and nothingness.

Nothing happens. Nobody comes, nobody goes. It’s awful.

The sun shone, having no alternative, on the nothing new.

They give birth astride of a grave, the light gleams an instant, then it’s night once more.

My blog, my stage, my small part of this virtual world is the scariest leap I have ever taken. For the longest time I simply dreamed of who I wanted to be, could be, should be yet allowed the opinions of others to take first place. I’ve learned, and continue to learn that your passion is discovered. And I discovered my passion for writing a very long time ago. However, I dabbled in writing, I had periods where I plunged my very being into writing (even submitted manuscripts) and then recoiled like a wounded animal when rejected. I tried to suppress my passion. Continue reading “Starting My Blog”

My Current Skincare Routine

This week I discovered Nadine Baggot. Wow! I binged watched her videos on Youtube and learned so much regarding the actual science behind different ingredients and how to use them.

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I have overhauled my skincare routine in the last several months after neglecting it and relying solely on my good genes. However, this attitude resulted in dry, patchy and red skin which I hated, and which also made me feel self-conscious. Continue reading “My Current Skincare Routine”

Hoops for Me

 

My style has been something I have wanted to overhaul for such a long time. From changing my hairstyle and wearing clothes I love and feel good in as opposed to ones I can simply “just afford”, a “new me” has been at the top of my list for the last several years. I realise that finding my sense of style will be an ongoing process and that I will not have a specific or definitive look (although that might also change).

As I think back to my early twenties (10 years ago now!), I surprise myself at how daring and fashion-confident I was. I worked in an office where I wouldn’t think twice about mixing prints or fabrics or brightening up a complete black outfit with a colourful pair of shoes, blazer or even belt. I received compliments daily and was even told how a person couldn’t wait for me to walk through the door to see what I was wearing. Continue reading “Hoops for Me”
