Dear August...

Dear August, 

I got up and changed my life for the better... I'm happy with my family and my friends. There might not be as many as before, but they are definitely close and are very supportive.

Even though parts of my life are still fairly bad, I've learnt that I can not change that, no matter how hard I try. Therefore I am happy where I am. Life... I am happy! 

The last time I recapped I wasn't to good. I was living my life to other people's standards instead of my own. Everything seemed foggy, cold and unclear without any hope of moving forward.

But this time, you and your hopeful behaviour has given me a push to a place where things look brighter.

I'm so in love with all of my friends and family and I'm so in love with you again. 

I am becoming more grateful for the little things instead of pushing them aside. 

Thank you for giving me hope, and I'll see you soon.

The Sister Tag

Hi, today I am going to be doing a post with the most beautiful little sister in the world. As this is a blog post it will be a little different compared to the YouTube video's you may have seen of this tag instead. We are basically going to discuss it and write down our answers, so I guess you could say a bit like a script. Just a heads up my sisters name is Makayla (M) before we head on in. Well grab a nice hot beverage and prepare to take some time learning more about me and my sister. 

Describe each other in one word?
M: Caring
N: Unique

Do people ever get you mixed up?
Both: Yeah all the time, but by our names.
M: For example I get called "Nikkita" a lot.

What is something that annoys you about one another?
M: The germ thing that you have
N: Basically I like everything to be clean, which is something Makayla isn't. Therefore the one thing I find annoying is her hygiene.

What is it like being sister with a blogger?
M: Normal, it's not much different except from she might take more pictures.

Do you ever argue?
M: Yeah, sometimes. 
N: It tends to be more when we are around people.

What's the best thing about one another?
N: That's she is my little sister, I could never ask for anyone better.
M: That she cares about me.

Ditch the dirt?
M:Back when I was in reception, it was a cold day and I had my pink winter coat on. She came over to help me zip it up but instead she zipped my lip as well and it was bleeding everywhere.
N: But I was trying to be caring.

Favourite memory together?
N: We've shared lots of memories together I think the main one being recently when we we're driving home from our camping trip and we were dancing in the car.

Full sisters/half/step?
Both: Full sisters

Guess each others favourite singer?
M: Arctic Monkeys o Lily Allen?
N: Yeah definitely, Taylor Swift?
M: No, I can't decide it's either Taylor Swift or Echosmith.

Who takes longer to get ready?
M: Nikkita does.
N: That's not always true it depends. At parties Makayla does.

Heels or flats?

M: Flats
N: Yep, heels?
M: Nope, in the middle of heels and flats.

Pants or dresses?
M: Pants
N: Even if this is pants meaning trousers, I still think we would both go for pants.

Favourite animal?

N: Rabbit
M: Chinicilla's
N: Nope?
M: Oh yeah I forgot, Dog and pig?
N: Yeah

If your house was burning down, and your entire family was sure to be okay, what would you save and why?
M: Your two favourite teddies?
N: Yep or my pictures. Kayla, which is the name of her teddy bear.

Comedy, horror, or chick-flick?
M: Comedy and sometimes chick-flick
N: I definitely know that yours is horror

Both: We have matching eternity bracelets. They're different colours but the same, out Dad also has one too.

What's your favourite TV show?
M: New Girl?

My Life Through my Phone

Taken from my trip to Plymouth when I visited the Plymouth University. It was such a lovely area and a lovely university but I've decided due to places I have looked at that I'm not a big fan of going to university. But if you're in the same boat when you're not to sure whether to go or not. I highly recommend that you look round a few places as that's when you know. 

This was taken on my lovely trip to Cardiff. I stayed the night at Cardiff university and it was overall a lovely night spent with one of my closest friends Abbey and made new friends. I also had my very first Nando's.

This photo was taken by my friend Roxy, but she sent it to me hens why it was on my phone. This was taken from when I went to Bristol Pride with my friends. I had a lovely day and a good laugh meeting so many of my friends that I hadn't seen in a while.

Recently I have been slightly stressed out and when you're stressed out you should have a nice hot relaxing bath. So that's what I did, I took some time out for myself. So if any of you are feeling stressed out I recommend you to do something for you. 

This photo was taken from my recent camping trip with some friends and family. I will be putting more pictures up soon so you can look at what type of things we got up to. But I found this picture and I think it represents how lovely this trip was.

I hope you have enjoyed this post, it's not like the normal posts I do but I thought you might like it as I normally love reading posts like this. Comment below whether you liked it or not. I defiantly had fun recapping my memories over the last couple of months. I hope you have or are having a lovely day.

Classic 72 Colour Eyeshadow Palette | Body Collection

Today I've decided to do a review on this eye shadow palette that I've had for a few years and have only just recently discovered. Normally I'm not a fan of palette's as it means there are more colours for me to choose from. But recently I've been loving them, them give you a selection and are perfect for travelling. 

One thing I expecially love about this one is that it includes a mirror and two tools to help you apply it, if you don't like applying it with your finger. I also love the size of each colour. It's big enough for you to apply the colour using your finger as well as being small enough for you to be able to use each colour up without leaving any spare which is something I love as I hate having left over palettes when you can't get all the colour out. It makes me feel like I've wasted money. 

I also love ho the pigment of each colour varies. As I don't know whether it's just me but I sometimes like to use colours that are bold yet not so in your face. I've done a few swatches to show you what the colours look like. I like how all 4 colours vary in boldness. It's very similar to how they are in the palette. There is a selection of each colour and there are different shades and different scales of bold on each colour. Personally I love this palette, and highly recommend it. I did get it a few years ago so I'm not one hundred per cent sure where you can purchase it from but if you do find it I highly recommend it. It was also very cheap from what I can remember, I think it was around £3 which is a crazy price for the quality it is. Have you got this product? Comment below and tell me what you think.

What's in my Little Bag?

As promised from my most recent post, here's what is in my Little Bag that I carry with my all the time. I like this bag as it is small enough to throw in any bag. It contains all what I might need on a day to day basis.

1 | Tissues

You never know when you're going to need some or when someone else is going to ask you whether they can have some.

2 | Grips

3 | Hair band

For when your hair gets very annoying so you have to throw it up in a ponytail or a quick hairstyle in order to get hair out of your face.

4 | Pill box

This is for all my medicine like paracetamol, anxiety and migraines because you never know when you might need them.

5 |  Nail file

6 | Nail stick

For when your nails are playing up. Personally I can't stand it when my nail breaks a little and gets caught on everything.

7 |  Nivea creme

This is used when my hands or any part of my body gets dry, so that you body can stay smooth all day long. 

8 | Lip balm 

Very similar to number 7 but for when your lips get dry. I hate cracked lips. This also contains some anti-septic thing which means you can use it on cuts or scratches to stop it from getting infected, which I haven't done yet but it's good to know it's there.

9 | Gum

For when you need extra fresh breath.

10 | Charger

For when you need to charge your phone on the go. I normally use this when I go to school and have computers around, but it's also good when you stay over your friends house.

11 | Money

You never know when you need money.

12 | Hand sanitiser

This is a life saver, for when you need to clean your hands on the go.

13 | Perfume

For when you want to smell nice.

14 | Plasters

For when you've cut yourself or for when someone else asks you for one.

So that's what's in my little bag. I have things for on the go and things to help me prepare for unplanned events. Remember to comment I reply to all comments.

What's in my Bag?

Today I have decided to do a slightly different post. I always see these videos and blog posts about and really enjoy watching them. So I've decided to do one for you guys, as I think you can tell a lot about someone by what's in their bag. So I'm hoping you enjoy this post. 

But before we begin my bag as shown in the first picture. Is a lovely bag that I purchases a few years back from Primark I'm not too sure how much it was. But it is a lovely bag size which can fit a lot in whilst being small enough for everyday use. 

Purse | Primark

I purchased this a few years back along with the bag that I am using. I love this purse and how unique it is. I also love how it represents my style, it's edgy yet feminine at the same time. I love this purse and use it all the time and it's lasted me well. 

Umbrella | Superdrug

This umbrella is smaller compared to other umbrellas, but it still does the job. As I live in the UK no matter how sunny it is, it can still decide to rain. So I always carry an umbrella on me and this one is small enough to fit in my bag whilst getting me from A to B safely.

Prescription Sunglasses | Tommy Hilfiger

As I wear glasses my Dad wanted me to purchase some sunglasses so I don't suffer when it's sunny. At first I wasn't to sure as they're very expensive but after purchasing them I have used them so much and love them. Whether I'm in the car or taking a stroll along the riverside. I can just put them on and see clearly without the sun blinding me. I highly recommended them to all my fellow glasses wearers out there.

House Keys

Just like most people I always make sure I have my keys in my bag. I also love my key rings. There's a "Daddy's Girl" one that my Dad got me from his travels in New York when I was younger. There's also a key ring that my Dad made when I first got my house keys, which I cherish dearly, but I've hidden it this picture for personal reasons.

iPod | Argos

I love my music. Music can help you escape from stress and everyday life. I have about 1,300 songs on my iPod and the genres vary. So I have every type of music to suit my mood. So I can't go anywhere without my iPod, it helps to make journeys go faster as well, which I love especially when I'm on my way to work. I've had this iPod for over a year now and the iPod I had before that I had for 7 years. So in my opinion iPod's are good ways to listen to music everyday.

Diary | WHSmith

This is the place where I keep myself all organised. Originally I didn't carry a pen around with me (which was very silly) but now I do also have a pen. I also keep all my important numbers in here just in case my phone dies or I haven't got my phone on me.

My Little Bag | Vaseline

This contains lots of interesting bits and pieces, which I'll leave for another post. So keep your eyes pealed. 

I hope you've enjoyed this post. Remember to comment below whether you liked this post or have any other suggestions for upcoming posts. I reply to all my messages as soon as I can.
