Making Your Options

You are never really given the chance to have a say in your future until you are 13, that's when you have to choose your options for GCSEs and believe me, it can be terrifying. Some people treat the decision as a breeze and pick whatever sounds fun, others put a lot of thought into them and try to imagine what they could do with specific qualifications. The next big decision you have to make is what you are going to do after you have finished those exams. That's even scarier.

Sparkle Like a Star

Just because it's winter, doesn't mean we can't keep the glitter makeup! We don't need festivals or big summer parties to wear that glitter highlight. I'm pretty sure Instagram was full of pictures of women and men with their face coated in glitter, so what's to say we have to stop just because the sun isn't out as often? The Christmas trees are out and we're all ready for the festive season. Lots of parties are soon arriving with Christmas and the New Year fast approaching, so lets crack open the glitter pots once again.

GUEST POST: Maroon Lipstick - How to Wear It and Where to Buy It

Any woman has a maroon lipstick in their lipstick collection. If you do not have it, make sure you purchase one. This colour will bring out the shape of your lips, boosting them. Wearing a dark lipstick can be tricky because you cannot wear it all the time. At least that is what makeup artists advise women. 

HTML for Bloggers - The Basics

HTML is one of the scariest abbreviations for bloggers. Those four letters that stand for Hypertext Markup Language, can be difficult to get your head around. It's taken some time for myself to figure it out. During my final year of GCSE's, I had to sit an exam where I had to create a website using basic HTML language. It wasn't easy. Let's just say that I had to resit it. After doing all of that, i made sure to teach myself some of the basics because they can be super helpful when I blog. Today, I'm going to give you tips and step by step guides on the HTML basics. I'll help you embed tweets and playlists. How to cope when your text isn't the correct font, and how to link your site when commenting on other people's blogs. I may include a few other things too!

My 2017 Autumn Favourites

This Autumn, there's been lots and lots of products that I have been loving! I've had a few events and parties to go to and have been piling more products into my box room. More of my makeup has been brought out of it box and I've been trying out new techniques and ways to get a quick and easy look. I've put together a few things to bring you some of my favourite products things month!

Have Your Therapeutic Kiss from Oyster**

Oyster are a new premium skincare brand that will make your eye's look younger and sparkle more during the festive season...or any season for that matter. This is a brightening eye serum and it's not just for the older ladies, you can never start too early. My bedroom is full of anti-ageing products! The oils in this product will have your eyes looking bright and youthful in no time. Both me and my mum tried this out. My mum (obviously) saw more of a difference so most of this review is from her.

Vision Express: The Stylish Way of Seeing Clearly**

I'm sure most of you are aware of Vision Express but if you're not, it's an opticians. I've never been to Vision Express before - I'm a Specsavers kind of gal. I was invited down to my local Vision Express to experience their way of things and let me tell you, I really did enjoy it. When my experience was complete, I was allowed to purchase a pair of glasses, courtesy of Vision Express, to give myself a nice end to a lovely service.

What I've Been Wearing this Autumn

I love Autumn clothing, the cosy jumpers, Chelsea boots, warm scarves and everything in between. Autumn is by far my favourite time of year not just for the clothes, I love the crisp leaves and cold mornings; dark nights and winds that blow your hair. Isn't Autumn just amazing? Today, I'm going to show you three outfits that I've been loving this Autumn.

Was HELLO WORLD LIVE Really Worth It?

On Saturday 28th October I went to Birmingham to interview New Hope Club and experience the new Youtuber experience, HELLO WORLD. There was a lit of stick about this event, I had a lot of fun when I went but if I was a super fangirl I would have been really disappointed. The event as a whole was an unorganised mess, I think that the organisers had learnt their lesson on the Saturday and apparently the Sunday was a bit better. I don't think a few lists could have saved this event.

Interview with New Hope Club

New Hope Club are an upcoming British band made up of Reece Bibby, Blake Richardson and George Smith. Signed by The Vamps in December 2015, after only being a band for a few months, the lads have been stealing girls hearts all over the world. They've toured alongside The Vamps and more recently, Sabrina Carpenter.
