What better way to kick off my 26th year than to discuss the 25 lessons I’ve learned since last year, am I right?
I’ve made it to 26 and I’ve never been prouder. I feel like now my life is really starting to take off and all the other years were preparation for the next ones acoming… The next ones acoming will be filled with stability. I’ll make sure of that. I feel like my life has been missing that. All my life has ever needed is stability.
Below, you’ll find 25 things I learned last year or already knew but have decided to stick with this year.
1) if you don’t love yourself, you won’t allow for anyone else to love you
I might take the mick out of myself, but I’m very confident in my skin, secure in myself and am very aware of who I am as a person.
2) don’t be resentful
If things don’t go the way you intially planned, or things don’t work out as you’d hoped – don’t worry. Don’t resent people or circumstances in your life. Everything happens for a reason.
3) what’s meant for you is yours
No one has ever missed an opportunity that was written in their book of life. The only opportunities missed are ones that weren’t meant for us in the first place.
4) be patient no matter what
Patience is everything. Take That wrote a song about it. Have a little patience. It’ll all work out in the end, don’t rush anything. God knows we’ve all tried to rush stuff to no avail.
5) actions speak louder than words
Be proactive not just literate. You’ve got to and talk. That’s the secret to a happy anything.
6) life is about finding yourself
Do things that challenge and grow you as a person, if you’re not spending your time conquering fears, pushing yourself out of comfort zones and being fearless, you’re not living.
7) be yourself
Stand up for what you believe in and be yourself throughout. Don’t spend your time trying to change for other people to like you. The right people will see past it all and love you.
8) be true to yourself and others
Don’t lie to yourself or others. Be honest about what and who you are no matter how hard it is. We all make mistakes, those who admit to those and have no problem talking about them are the winners.
9) take time to meditate
Meditation helps with anxiety and enables you to enter another world of pure tranquility. I’ve been doing this as much as I can, it’s so helpful. It helps to see things clearer.
10) trust your instincts
Whatever your instincts are telling you, you’re right to feel it.
If you believe in God, pray to him. If you don’t, pray to yourself. Tell yourself things, and put steps in place that helps you put them into action i.e. dreams.
12) dare to dream
No dream is too big if you can visualise yourself doing it and really believe in it.
13) work hard
Put all your efforts into working hard and earning a name for yourself in the industry that you specialise in, or earn the grades you’re striving to get at school/college/uni.
14) enjoy life
Life is too short. Enjoy it.
15) focus on the positive
The key to a happy life is to focus on the positives. There’s good and bad in all situations, accept the bad but dwell on the good.
17) be selfish when you need to be
Don’t live life for anyone else. Your life is yours alone. The people you’re “living for” (in the ways they want you to be) aren’t going to be there always.
18) join a social club or start classes in something you enjoy (like a hobby)
You’ll meet people and grow skills you never knew you had.
19) smell the flowers and/or coffee
Take time out of your day to smell something that relaxes your mind, body and soul. It really helps in times of tension.
20) love life
Love the life you live and be grateful and thankful for everythjng.
21) smile even when you don’t want to
Trick yourself into believing you’re happy on your worst days, it works.
22) watch funny clips
Spend your time laughing. Laughter is the best medicine.
23) be the best version of someone you’d like to meet
Like attracts like, so if you’re the version of someone you’d love to meet, you’ll meet a likeminded individual.
24) love wholeheartedly
Love entirely. Spread love like it’s glitter.
25) remember that every day is a second chance to change something about yourself or your life
If you’re not happy with something about yourself, change it. Don’t wait for tomorrow though, start today. Take tomorrow as a chance to stick with your new good habit and do it for 30 days until it becomes a part of you.
Thanks for reading (or not),
Today I’ll be discussing (complaining about) Smashbox’s three-tone ombré lipsticks. What a load of BS.
Firstly, I don’t know if I have some next level lips that kiss themselves when I’m not looking or feeling but this lipstick smudged like a Mother trucker! I can’t even tell you, but again – I’ll find a way. Load. Of. Monstrosity. What a rip off. £12.00 something, wasted.
Then, let’s move on to the shade, shall we? Yes, I love red lipstick but I was anticipating this to look like the image, a sunset… I don’t know if I’m an invalid at applying lipstick or if they actually false advertised, but it just looked like a standard red lipstick – one that didn’t suit my skin tone at all. I have a Seventeen lipstick that cost £3 that did a better job and looked better than this absolute fudgery. Don’t buy it unless you fancy wasting your money and/or have unkissable-themselves lips and/or don’t have a skin tone that makes you look even pastier when this is applied. I looked washed out and like an albino Eskimo with bright red lips. Imagine. Never. Again.
What a load of BS. Absolute crap. No. It’s a no from me. It doesn’t even deserve a picture nor a link to the product page. Stupidity. What a waste of packaging and a product. My bank statement is bereft and hosting a minute’s silence for the waste at 12am tomorrow morning, GMT.
So, to confirm – things that are legendary:
Things that are not legendary:
– Be Legendary by Smashbox, ALL the offence in the world – not even “no”! BULL SH*T.

I know what you’re not thinking: “oh, wow! That Miamii sure knows how to live… Blogging about a metal OVARY at 03:20something in the morning on a Saturday!”
Well, you know, if I cared about what blogging others thought – long story short is: my soul would’ve left my own body 25 and a half years ago… I catch myself thinking ‘WTF?!” at my own self-inflicted idiocy regularly, it’s nothing new… It just happens less often now. Yes, this blog post isn’t a great example of how not to live but we’re all allowed to have ‘WTF?!’ moments outside of RL, this blog post being written is one of them.
Back to the metal ovary… It’s no secret that blood circulation misses my face most days… I walk around with an inflated beach ball covered in skin – which I call a face. I used to blame it on water retention, but there comes a time where you just got to accept that there isn’t an excuse for that. Of course, it isn’t that bad, I’m highly exaggerating, but you know… Inflation of the facial region.
At this stage, I’m not sure if I want to go back to discussing the metal ovary or just talk about my flaws a little more… Alright, back to the ovary.
It’s not an actual ovary. Sorry to disappoint you… It can’t have an out-of-body PMS, during MS and/or post MS experience outside of your own body, so, apologies… It’s just a face roller and my best buy.
I love it so much even though I’ve had it less than 24 hours. It’s literally like a gym for the face; except there isn’t a gym for the face. Hahahaha. I’m really selling this. FML!
You know what it feels like? The roller for coats/jackets or the pin that we roll out dough with. In hindsight, it probably would’ve been more convenient to use those two but, my face doesn’t want to catch a self-raising flour, milk & yeast infection nor does it want to have fabric where skin used to be…
I bought this one from Amazon (the roller not a fabric skinned yeast facial infection). It’s by Senssé and it’s Sensétional. I love it. It’s literally incredible. There’s nothing like it. Probably FACT because who even thinks to develop a FACE ROLLER?! What must be going on in your life for you to decide to cut metal into an ovary and sell it on Amazon? I’m so glad whatever it is happened, because: YES!
I used it once and noticed a difference instantly. It was like a placebo ‘new face, who dis?!’ effect. We’ve all been there.
So, there we go… It defines the cheekbones, smoothens lines and jowls whilst also defining the jawline. Perfection.
I mean, 99.999999999999999999 – 100% of the population don’t need this, but I do so… Don’t buy it. But, allow me to buy it so I can tell you about it and waste a few hours of your life.
Did I mention that it’s a metal ovary? Only the finest of Rose Gold placentas (which this isn’t) for moi… What am I on about? I don’t even know!
I also know it looks like a pee-pee. I was told this by a friend and I did get slightly mortified. However, not enough to still post about it, clearly. “It’s like a pee-pee fidget spinner for the face!”, she said. I don’t know what to say… I prefer ovaries just because I’ve got set of those and can relate to them on an emotional level.
How do I like my eggs?
I LOOK LIKE I NEED A STAMP OVER MY OWN FACE. AT LEAST LET ME START AS I MEAN TO GO ON! LET ME CREATE MY OWN STAMP BEFORE I MAKE ONE FOR YOU.
I DO NOT SELL ON WOWCHER. IF IN DOUBT, FIGURE IT OUT OR EAT A FIG WHILE YOU’RE OUT. JUST, DON’T FILL OUT THE CONTACT FORM ASKING ABOUT YOUR ORDERS.
I A) WON’T ANSWER. B) YOU’LL BE WASTING A MOMENT OF YOUR LIFE. YOU COULD BE MAKING CHILDREN ON MY BEHALF! ENJOY!
