Heather Caton Textiles, Make Up Bags & More.

 This is a gorgeous birthday gift I received early from my lovely friend Heather when we went home ware shopping and a good old catch up on Thursday. I wish I was as talented as Heather, she paints, draws and creates like a dream. I've know Heather for about 6/7 years, we met at college when we both started our Art and Design course. It was the best three years of my life and we had so much fun. In college Heather created things that blew my mind every single time, she is super talented.

My Spring Make Up Picks.

 I am loving doing my make up at the minute because of certain products that I enjoy. I have been watching YouTube tutorials on Spring make up and I love all the pinks being used. Spring is my favourite season and I love all the bright colours being used in make up looks, I have been using a lot of pinks. I have this new Primer from Witch to thank this Spring because it keeps my skin clear and works so well alongside my make up. Its cooling on the skin when you apply it, it fights to keep your skin spot free and works so well as a primer. My make up stays on all day at work and the primer doesn't feel sticky or weird on the skin when you apply it. I need to buy a new one, I have used this everyday for the past two months.

Does Your Blog Need A Make Over?

Never mind my blog needing a make over, I feel like I am in need of one. hair appointments and getting my brows done is on my list of things to do this week. When it comes to my blog I have changed the name and the logo more times than I can count on my hand. I am thinking about updating the layout soon now, I am so pleased with my header though. Its simple yet effective, let me know what you guys think?

Decorating My Lounge With WayFair.

 With Spring upon us it is the perfect time to do up a room in your house, we decided to work on our lounge. It is one of the rooms we spend the most time in and its really bright, so in the living room we decided it needs a bright colour. Our living room is all about relaxing and feeling at home. Creating a place for relaxation is key.

New To My Hair/ Skin Care From The Drugstore.

 I am a big fan of skin care and trying out new products every now and then to spruce up my skin care. I popped into Boots with my mom and we noticed it was 3 for 2 on some of the products so we treated ourselves to some new things. I love to try keep my skin as spot free as possible due to my make up going on better when I look after my skin. I picked up a ne shampoo and it is a bargain at just 79p, I am very fussy with shampoos because my scalp can get dry if I use the wrong one. I can confirm for 79p this one is one of the best I have ever used, it leaves my scalp pain free and my hair super clean. I need to go get some more to stock up, it is perfect, 
 Biore is one of my favourite skin brands, I love the nose strips and they work so well. I picked up this charcoal cleanser to help fight unwanted break outs. Charcoal brings out all the dirt deep down in your pores, I find it leaves my skin feeling extra clean. This product is great for those pesky black heads near your nose to help keep them clear. I find because I wear make up to work, I get warm and when I use this I feel like it does a great job of pulling out all my make up that might be deep into my pores. 
 I have been using a new micella water from Witch Skin care, it is a new release and it is available now to buy. It leaves my skin feeling fresh and soft, it helps to remove any make up I have missed after using my cleansing balm. I love Witch it is a huge part of my skin routine and I am now nearly 25. I used it as a teenager and have fallen back in love with it the past year. They have so much choice and the witch hazel works wonders on my skin. 

The Time Bomb cocktail I use at the end of my skin routine because it leaves my skin refreshed, clean and helps to keep my dry skin at bay. It smells amazing and it really works to help me with my dry skin because witch hazel can dry the skin out so with this alongside it it works wonders. 

I love to use a facial wash that exfoliates too, it helps to remove any dead skin and it feels great to have a deep clean on the skin. I am using this one from Boots and it has tea tree and witch hazel in it, so it works well alongside my Witch skin care routine. This one was on the 3 for 2 offer so I picked it up with the Biore one. Charcoal is a big part of my skin care this Spring, it seems to be working wonders on removing the dirt deep into my skin. 

I am a big fan of skin care and using all of these products I feel that my skin looks healthier, glows and is ready for make up. 

What are you using this Spring?

Updating My Lounge With HomeSense.

 One of my favourite things to do in life is update my home with lovely home ware. My house I adore and there is nothing better than coming home to somewhere you love, to your Boyfriend and pets. I love cute trinkets and making my house a home. A clean home is a free mind for me so making it as cosy as possible is a must. I found this box to put my mail in, I love a good quote. 
 I am lucky enough to work with Home Sense and want to say a big thank you for sending me a gift card to spend. Home Sense is one of my favourite home ware stores you can find so many bits and bobs, unique things too. So I wanted to share with you what I got to update my home this Spring. 
  On Thursday myself and my mom heading into Preston and we decided to home ware shop, as my mom is moving into a new home. We popped into Home Sense and there was a lot of things we both wanted to bring home. I decided to stick to my gift card of £20* and see what I could find with this to update my home. I found three things to update my lounge, a basket,cushion and a cute box to put in my mail.
I picked up this metal basket for £10* from Home Sense and I have been on a hunt for one for ages to put our blankets in it. We love to cuddle up on the sofa and watch tv, so having a space to keep them neat and tidy is great. It was such a bargain too, I have seen them so much more expensive. 
 This is part of my birthday gift from my mom, we popped into Next and oh my there were so many items we fell in love with. The bedding, the ornaments and cushions were on point, I wish I could buy it all. They were £5 each and so cute on my side table in my lounge. 
I then picked up this yellow cushion for £9* which goes so well with my hints of yellow in our lounge, which is great for Spring/ Summer. It works so well with the grey,blacks and white in my lounge. I love updating my home with small things that make a big difference. 

I love Home Sense and I always find so many amazing pieces for my home.

How I feel about turning 25!

 So I turn 25 on the 29th of May next week, I am so excited for my week off work too. Some time for me to relax and catch up on stuff. I want to get my car cleaned, get my hair and nails done as a treat. I am putting my all into my job and feel like this week off is time to catch up and reflect on myself and enjoy spending time with my dogs and Rob. Not to go over board on things but I had a tough upbringing with my dad being an alcoholic and him beating my mom up every night for years, it hurts me more now than ever but I am learning to live my own life now and its my time to shine. The past needs to stay in the past, I need to live my own happy life now. When I have kids I will make sure they never have to go through such tough times and enjoy their life no matter what is thrown at them. I recently have been watching baby videos of me and I think to myself would I ever put that little girl down, tell her shes fat or not good enough. Of course I wouldn't so why do I do it to myself now?

 So turning 25 is a milestone for me, it is time to enjoy more of what I love and to take each day as it comes. I love to work hard and this is what I am going to continue to do. I am going to list a few things that I want to change, do now that I am 25..

1. Never put myself down.
2. Go out more 
3. learn something new.
4. the past is the past.
5. live for now.
6. Listen to more Katy Perry.
7. never feel guilty home ware shopping.
8. work hard.
9. start a YouTube channel
10. design my office.
11. let go and just be free.
12. eat a little less pizza.
13. join a gym.
14. get a tattoo
15. save for a holiday!
16. help an animal charity.
17. make a 5 year plan.
18. be confident.
19. walk more.
20. challenge myself.
21. blog blog blog!
22. go to more events.
23. take pride in myself and stop putting myself down.
24. enjoy everyday with my little family.
25. smile and laugh more than ever.

I cannot believe how fast time has gone, I remember my 18th birthday like it was yesterday. I need to make myself go out more, I am such a home body and love relaxing with my dogs.My blog means the world to me and I want to focus on it the next 5 months to really push myself, not going to lie I would love to win an award or even be short listed again for it like the Cosmo blog awards. I appreciate all your support and I want to start my YouTube channel soon, I am thinking in June.  I have so many blog goals, this is the best hobby in the world.

I am in a very happy place right now, I adore my boyfriend and my pets. I am working so hard and I even enjoy it. I am so excited for my birthday, to spend time with my family. Me and my mom have a cute day planned filled with cake. I'm typing this up singing along to Katy Perry feeling happy, I'm watching her Prismatic world tour because I was there two years ago today. I so wish I was there right now dancing and singing to her songs!

Have a great day!
