Tips on Staying Organised

So we all have those days where we take one look round our homes/bedroom and just want to start crying because we can't find that white shirt that we had three weeks ago and all of your make-up is scattered all over your floor....

Here are some tips that will help you stay organized on a day to day basis:

1.Clean as you go - this will save you so much time in the long run. If you pick something up, put it back where it belongs.

2.Make a to do list the night before - this will help you keep on track with everything you need to do the next day.

3. Spend 15-20 minutes tidying each day - it will cut down the amount of work you need to do at the end of the week.

4. Put your dirty clothes into a washing hamper

5. Wash the dishes after you use them and don't leave them in the sink - it makes the place looks really messy.

6. Have a place for everything and put everything back in its place

7. Playing music while cleaning will keep you motivated - Plus dancing is a form of exercise so why not make cleaning fun ;)

8. Take it one step at a time and don't try to clean the entire house in one day or week for that matter!

9. Spend 30 minutes a day organizing your emails- delete the ones you don't need and reply to the ones which need replying.

10. Clean as you go- if you see something messy, clean real quick it won't take all day.

Review: Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Cream Foundation

Hello my loves!
I know, I know it has been forever since I've posted. I took a little time off from blogging and YouTube to focus on myself  but now that summer is over and I'm finished college I will be blogging full time! (Yaaaay)

So todays post is going to be on a product that I have a love hate relationship with. I love it but it hates me.
It is the  Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Cream Foundation in the color Medium Beige. I purchased this product because my sister used it, I tried her one and I loved it instantly! I loved the coverage it gave me, full coverage, and I loved how it lasted all night long! I usually wear this going out at night as it is a little darker than my natural skin tone so it works well when I'm tan

The only problem is I am guaranteed to wake up with random spots on my face, for some reason it hates me. And they take forever to heal, they're really red and swollen at first, also extremely sore to touch. Now I have to admit I don't do a full facial cleanse after a night out but I do use a face wipe to take off my make-up. I do have quite dry skin but it is never usually this easily irritated. Whatever is in this product just makes my skin go crazy for days.

Have you tried this product? If so what do you think of it and did you have any problems?  

I don't know why this hates me so much so for now I will just have to be on the look out for a new going out foundation. If you have a favorite one feel free to leave it in the comments below! :)

Blog Blabber #3 - Positivity.

Hello lovelies, 
So recently I've been feel quite crappy if I'm being honest. I didn't want to get out of bed most days, I had no motivation to write any posts or film any videos. I would just lay in bed watching The Vampire Diaries, which is 100% okay but just not all day everyday. This also explains the lack of posts.

 I realized I need to get out of this slump but I just wasn't sure how. At first I thought it might be, yanno *whispers* women problems,*whispers* but it wasn't.
I started reading blog posts about how to keep motivated, they were all really great but I still didn't feel like they helped me very much.

I've come to notice when you're feeling down, no matter what you read, watch or hear from other people the only thing that can pull you out of the slump is your own mind.

YOU'RE the only person who can make you truly happy. You have to rely 100% on yourself to pick yourself up. Relying on others will do you no good, I'm speaking from experience here.

I have noticed in the past couple of weeks that when you think happy and positive you will feel happy and positive. If you're having a crappy day, go get some tea/coffee, go to a quiet place and just think about everything you have to be grateful for, think about everything you have going for you in your life and remember to just breathe. Sometimes a few little deep breaths is all we need to snap us back into reality.

Go take a long walk, go to the park, read a book, have a pamper session, just make sure you're spending time with yourself doing something you love to do. 
Sometimes we don't realize how hard we're pushing ourselves or how negative we're being. No one likes a negative Nancy right?

So the next time you're feel down and crappy, stop, take some time for yourself and just breathe. Because no matter how hard the situation, everything always works out in the end as as long as you keep POSITIVE & SMILE!!

Lovin' Lippes #1 : MAC Pink Pearl Pop

Good evening lovelies! 
Here is a quick little post on a new lipstick I discovered by MAC and figured I would share it with you. 

I was in duty free in Palma Airport, Mallorca and I noticed they had a MAC stand. I got extremely excited and dragged my friend over to it! (Who wouldn't right?)
I had some money left over from my holidays so I figured I would buy a new lipstick for summer. 
Usually I'm a nude girl all year round but I found this perfect bright pink color and just fell instantly in love.

I am unsure of when this lipstick came out. It is from the cremesheen collection and is a girly baby pink color. It is a warm toned color so it won't leave you looking washed out,  its not too bright either so it won't stand out too much on your lips.

It has a pretty sheer application when first applied but you can build up the coverage to what suits you. As it is a cremesheen it has a shiny, lip-gloss like finish to it which leaves your lips feeling moisturized. I do have to touch it up every 2-3 hours though which is a little bummer. I've been wearing this lipstick for the last couple of days and I'm loving it. It looks to summery on my lips.
It retails for €19 and is in my opinion totally worth the money!
