Oh I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside

I absolutely love the sea. If you know me that’s no secret. Everything about it makes me feel so happy and relaxed. Last weekend I went to Staithes with my family and it’s one of the seaside villages (relatively) near us that I love the most. We stayed in a really cute cottage which was perfect for what we needed and just chilled. I spent hours and hours just sitting on the wave breakers, reading (and shivering, it was cold!). The pub there is also one of the best I’ve ever been to, the staff are so friendly and the vibe is just so laid back and he food is AMAZING! I’ve only got a few photos from this weekend but I wanted to share them anyway as it’s such a nice place.


I’m now back at school at wishing I was by the sea again 😦


My Travel Makeup and Skincare | India 2017

Hey guys! I’m back (hopefully to stay) with a very summery, holiday themed post. I’m going to be telling you what I took makeup and skincare wise on my trip to India. I knew it would be really hot so it’d be basic and stripped back but I wasn’t quite prepared for how busy and therefore tired I’d be. I wore a bit in the evenings if we went out for a meal but overall I just didn’t feel like wearing that much makeup and in the end just let the sun get to my skin. I did however use all the skincare I took with me. So let’s goooooooooo…

La Roche Posay Anthelios Cream

This sun cream is so amazing. It feels like a really nice moisturizer on the skin and doesn’t leave a white cast at all which has happened when I’ve tried others. It didn’t break me out at all which is what I’m always anxious about with sun cream. It also works really well with makeup over the top and doesn’t affect it at all.


The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA

I’ve loved this moisturizer for a while but on holiday I found this really helped with sunburn and acted as an aftersun which was really good because my body after sun is so sticky which is not nice on ya face.


The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% +B5

Again this was really nice as an after sun because it’s so cooling.


Balance Me Tinted Wonder Eye Cream (soz it’s a bit blurry)


Nivea Sun Protect SPF 30

I didn’t actually use this a lot because I ended up buying the Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream in duty free so I used that instead. It’s amazing!


OPI Nail Lacquer ‘Go With The Lava Flow’ and Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat


Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer


MAC Studio Fix Powder


Tanya Burr Rosy Flush Cheek Palette


Rimmel Brow This Way Brow Gel


Maybelline Colour Tattoo Cream Eyeshadow ‘On and on Bronze’


Tanya Burr Enchanted Dream Palette


Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara


Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick


Hope you’ve all had an amazing summer!

Frustration, Feeling Trapped and Dreams and Aspirations

Recently I’ve been feeling very trapped and frustrated by school and work and the area where I live.

I live in a small village in the countryside and to get to any town it’s at least a 15 minute drive. Slight problem no. 1, I can’t drive yet. Slight problem no. 2, my parents are not a taxi service (although they do their best for clubs etc.). Slight problem no.3, there are no buses to or from my village. So you can probably see why I feel trapped. I’m sure a lot of people my age have this problem and feel frustrated so I’m not alone but at the moment all my head is screaming is I WANT TO GO SOMEWHERE, ANYWHERE, WHERE THINGS HAPPEN!

School is also making me feel trapped. Don’t get me wrong I quite enjoy school, I can see my friends, I enjoy (most) of the subjects I’m doing but I’ve been in this routine for 8 years of my life and that might not seem long but it feels agesssss and I’m honestly a bit bored of it. The work load for A-level is so much and although I was expecting it to be hard, I just have no motivation to do any of it. Par exemple, right now I should be doing my french homework or revising for mocks which are in two weeks (crap!) but I just can’t bring myself to do it. Even getting bad grades doesn’t give me a kick up the bum to get going anymore.

Another reason for feeling trapped right now is because I’m a dreamer. Always have been, always will be. At the moment the place I want to be is London. I think about it everyday and my friends and family are probably sick of hearing me talk about it but it’s where I want to be more than anything. Another big dream is to study makeup artistry and because I’m getting bored of studying what I’m studying at the moment, it leads me to constantly think about what I’d rather be doing. Another thing constantly on my mind is TRAVEL TRAVEL TRAVEL. I want to see the world so badly. I follow so many amazing Instagrammers and YouTubers who go to incredible places and I just wish I could get on a plane at the drop of a hat. Having said that, I am going to India this summer with my Ranger unit which I’m hoping will be loads of fun, watch out for a blog post coming your way!

I think that is the end of my rant/vent. I any of you feel like this, let me know, let’s have a chat about it in the comments?!
