Hey guys & dolls,

This is a quick post to get my virtual pal Niamh some help on her university assignment. I think it’s really cool and am trying to help out as much as possible.

She’s studying at University and has to create her own project, she’s decided to create a forum for fellow young school kid bloggers that are just starting out to connect and speak out about stuff that might be troubling them… So, in essence, you’ll be like a sort of mentor.

 

I think it’s this is a great idea. Bullying is real, but can in some cases be escaped from, whereas cyber-bullying remains forever. No matter how many people you block, the sad reality is, the comments always stay there. It’s stupid. We should all learn to get along or just leave each other alone. There is no room for being hurtful. You never know how a sentence you say might damage someone, so it’s best if you don’t say anything at all. Be nice or don’t say anything. Simple. It’s not hard.

Anyway, doom and gloom aside, it’s a great cause for positive reasons outside of getting help on bullying, it’s also a great place for young novice bloggers to meet and network with other bloggers who are a little bit more experienced and understand the field a bit better. Yes, the blogging world is always changing, but there are certain themes that always stay the same. Giving novice bloggers a stepping stone or a helping hand, the way we should’ve been when we first started, is so rewarding!

Do you want to be a mentor and help Niamh out? Follow her on Twitter @Niamhyyy99 or check out her blog here. Alternatively, email her directly on: grabacuppanm@hotmail.com.

From what I understand, she needs a couple more mentors and also some 12-14 year old bloggers to take part in the forum itself. If you fit either bills, drop her a line. Oh, and – stay classy. We need to come together, not tear each other down.

I wanted to finish by giving major kudos to Niamh herself. This is such a great idea.

I know it’s only virtual, but Niamh is honestly such a lovely little blogger who shows a lot of promise. She’s got a bright future ahead of her!

Her idea to set up this little forum is such a sweet gesture and is sure to be a huge success.

The youngsters of the internet need more support than any of us. If we support them and nurture them, they’ll go on to do great things… But, if we leave them to  endure the wrath of stupid people who have no life outside of belittling and acting like hungry, mentally/physically frustrated keyboard warriors, we take away any chance of that.

Help. Always. In all the ways. Whether it’s reporting or blocking an account or telling an adult, do your bit where you can.

Don’t let those being trolled suffer by just reading the thread and watching it unfold. If all you’re doing is watching/reading, you’ve played a part in it. Remember that.

Love,

Miamii

Here’s a post that’s similar to Netflix & Chill, except, you’ll waste money and it’s an un-terminatable contract for 12 months!

I like Netflix becuase it’s cheap and you can terminate it whenever, especially when there’s nothing to watch on the UK one, which is almost always.

Now, imagine paying £27.99 a month for an all-you-can-view cinema card from Odeon when I hardly have time to go to the cinema!

Advices: don’t do it (unless you can actually find time to go).

I tried cancelling it because I just realised after 8 months (enough to fully grow a foetus inside a womb) that I literally have not been to the cinema in almost 9 months! Happy premature birthday, you spicy AF individual/s.

Okay, enough of tangents (even if that’s the kinda, sorta best one), first of all, I had two out-of-service knees that kneeded bedrest for approximately 5 months… Then I went back to work.

So, the last film I actually saw in cinema was Wonder Woman and the time before that? Well, the time before that I’d seen Arrival. IMAGINE!

My advice? Don’t tie yourself down to the Limitless card (or similar) if you’re busy and don’t have a lot of free time to see films or else you’ll be wasting money.

However, it’s a very good initiative and works out incredibly cost effective if you’re a regular cinema goer.

I love cinemas, I love movies, I just geniunely don’t have the time, and I won’t make time to go and see something on my own – because I don’t want to be stuck in a room full of couplos doing their businesses. Crack on, lovers! 💕

Okay, so I need to write 300 words for SEO and I currently only have 231 so… Damn, 232 now. Oh, you see where this is going. Let me fill up some space with my favourite thing to fill up blog posts with… Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. FlamBAE. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. BAEoncé. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. BAE! BAE! BAE! BAEBAE! BAEBSTATION. BAE! BAE (don’t) LEAF!

Odeon & Chinchilla. I two bazillion percent want to chin on your chill and/or chill on your chin, either or… I’m not fussy. Your chin, my chill… Let’s make it happen.

We know Bae knows how to take the perfect selfie but – Wunder2, the brand behind the very popular WunderBrow, have a setting powder that claims to give you the finished airbrush look…

PERFECT SELFIE HD Photo Finishing Powder is the easy way to achieve filter-flawless skin in real life. Formulated with High-Resolution Powder Technology, this ultra soft, bouncy powder magically transforms the skin to become poreless and pixel perfect. The ultimate finish to your makeup look in under two minutes without the use of a photo filter.

Are you like me? — Probably not which BTW is sometimes, most of the time and/or all the time a good thing, if you ask me…

Does your makeup always look half-done? No matter how much  or little I apply (less is definitely more where I’m concerned… I mean, you can still see my P.I.M.P-les. LOLS! Or should I say PMS-L. #PreMinstrelSycle-Lunacy. 🙈

GIMME GALAXY, INSTANTANEOUSLY* (please & thanks)!

*My not-so-new favourite word – other favourite words include: upper echelon, majesty, mate, Pegasus – which is a mythical animal and not just a word – oh, and decorum.

So, anyway (or all the ways)… Let’s get back to discussing Wunder2. ‘Cause I Wunder what 2 weeksies is…

I expected the powder to be tinted, becuase I didn’t do much research before buying it. I trust Wunder2. So, I knew it’d be good because their mascara is INCREDS!

It arrived in its very classy packaging, like all the other items I’ve bought from them… I opened it up, and saw a white base and nothing else. I geniunely thought I’d been sold a product with nothing in, until I realised that it was actually a white compact, pressed powder, that balances out your foundation’s skin tone and camouflages into it.

What did I think of it? It’s actually provides a really matte, HD finish (as stated), and looks flawless in selfies. I’m not even kidding, my selfie game has been “lifted” and/or “strengthened” like a one tonne dumbbell! #WhosBeenEatingThosePopeyeSpinaches?! #MyFace.

… if one more personal trainer asks me again if I “lift”, I’ll take the escalator and/or the stairs, dedicating it to them.

Final words of whizz-dome from me, it’s actually worth a purchase! Get the Perfect Selfie, be Bae for ONE dae with Wunder2…

Godly blessings,

🍀

 

Hi guys,

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.

11) pray

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:

Bae

Things that are not legendary:

– Be Legendary by Smashbox, ALL the offence in the world – not even “no”! BULL SH*T.
