10 Things To Try When You're Having A Bad Day
Hello loves,

We've all woken up some mornings and just know that it's not going to be your day. Good news is that you can turn around a bad day with positive thoughts and things that make you feel good.
I have some things that I like to do when I'm having a bad day to try and perk myself up a little bit so I figured I would share them with you.

1. Listen to your favourite song
Pick your favourite upbeat, happy song and sing it from the top of you lungs. Nothing gets me in a good mood more than screeching a good song.

2. Call your best friend/s
Whats better than having a chat with you're bestie when you're feeling down? You can rant about your bad day or you can talk about something different to take your mind away from things.

3. Eat some chocolate
Dark chocolate works particularly well as it helps your brain release endorphins. Maybe just a square or two though.

4. Go for a walk
In my opinion there is nothing more refreshing then taking a walk on a sunny day (which we don't get much of here)

5. Watch a funny YouTube video
Silly cat videos always get me

6. Light a candle
This is a strange one but I always find a nice scented candle lifts my mood a little.

7. Read inspirational quotes
Pinterest is the best for inspirations quotes.

8. Pray
What ever religion you believe in, sometimes believing in something greater than this world can make you feel better.

9. Watch a funny movie
Kevin Hart anyone?

10. Have a bath
Just sit back and relax in a nice Lush bubble bath and let your bad day wash down the drain with the water.

What are your favourite things to do when you're having a bad day?

Louise, xo

Carli Bybel Pallet | Review

Carli Bybel Pallet | Review
Hello loves,

Today I want to talk about the Carli Bybel pallet, Carli is one of my favourite YouTubers, a couple of months back she launched a collab with BHComsetics.com and let me tell you now, I am honestly obsessed with this pallet.
It only cost me €12.50 as it was on sale, I think it still is so go grab it while you can! This palette comes with 12 eyeshadows and 4 highlighters.
Shipping to Ireland only cost about around €10 so it was really inexpensive to get it shipped from America.

The pigmentation of this is just incredible for such an inexpensive price, honestly when I heard Carli was collaborating with BH Cosmetics I felt a little disappointed as I never really thought of them as anything spectacular but they really blew me away with this pallet. The colours, the texture, everything is amazing!

It is definitely an everyday pallet that, I feel would be suitable for many skin tones and eye colours. It has plum/mauve/golden shades which look fab on many people. And don't get me started on the highlighters, those babies can sparkle!!
If you're on the paler side, like myself, you can use the darker highlighters as shadows and vice versa. It's definitely a perfect everyday pallet as it so versatile.

Also, can we talk about the packaging for a second? I don’t own anything like this. It looks so chic and sleek. It's also super easy to keep clean as you can just wipe it down when you're done.

I will have a YouTube video up using this pallet soon, I'll post the link when it's up!

Have any of you got your hands on this pallet yet? If so, what are your thoughts on it?
