Watch. Read. Listen.

Hi, hope everyone is well. I came across this Watch. Read. Listen. thing from allsortsandanecdotes so i thought i'd try my kind of version :)

I've Been Watching....

The Fosters
This show is awesome, for those who haven't heard or seen it, the series follows the lives of the titular Adams Foster family, consisting of an interracial lesbian couple Stef and Lena, raising a blended family of biological, adopted and foster children. I started watching this last week and finished it in about 3 days, both seasons!! I have a number of favourite characters main and recurring... The Fosters is my new favourite abc family show and definitely recommend you all watch it.  :) 

Catfish: The TV Show
This show is pretty addictive and bonkers but hey its awesome. I'm pretty sure most people have heard of Catfish but those who haven't it's an American reality-based docu-series television series airing on MTV about the truths and lies of online dating and friendships with Nev Schulman and Max Joseph co-hosting who i just love! This show is my fave for sure.

I've been Reading...

Fifty Shades Of Grey
The first instalment in the Fifty Shades trilogy that traces the deepening relationship between a college graduate, Anastasia Steele, and a young business magnate, Christian Grey. It is notable for its explicitly erotic scenes I've read the trilogy when everyone was talking it and not gonna lie I liked the sound the story... I know this is pretty much an unpopular opinion but this is mine, the writing isn't the best but the story still was enjoyable. I saw the movie in February a few weeks after it came out and i really enjoyed it, the film was better i think and I plan on seeing the next 2... But still i enjoyed the books.

Girl Online
Is the debut novel by Zoella. Under the alias Girl Online, Penny blogs her hidden feelings about friendship, boys, high school drama, her crazy family, and the panic attacks that have begun to take over her life. When things go from bad to worse, her family whisks her away to New York, where she meets Noah, a gorgeous, guitar-strumming American. Suddenly Penny is falling in love - and capturing every moment of it on her blog... 
The book is so cute, i honestly love it - can't wait for the 2nd one to be released :) 

I've been Listening To...

War Paint by Kelly Clarkson 

I've non- stop listened to this since her new album Piece By Piece came out, this song and lyrics are beautiful. Can't help but sing along to it when its on my iPod ;)

Sad Song by We The Kings ft Elena Coats

I came across this song on Spotify and its a lovely song. I've never really listened to We The Kings but this song i can't stop listening to.

i'm not gonna lie, these songs remind me of my favourite pairing on The Fosters :')

if you want to keep check with what i'm listening to then follow my spotify playlist - My Playlist

You are beautiful


My Everyday Makeup Routine ❤️

So, here's what I like to wear on a daily basis - just something quick and simple.

I moisturise with Nivea oil free day cream once I've done that I like to prime my face with Max Factor face finity all day primer which does such a good job in making my makeup last all day. 

After I've moisturised and primed my face i apply 2 pumps of my Match Perfection foundation in Ivory blend that in with a beauty sponge, to cover my blemishes/under eye circles/ spots etc I apply Match Perfection concealer, again i blend that in. Once I've done all that I set it all with Rimmel Londons Stay Matte powder.

Moving on to eyes, which I just keep simple. I apply Rimmel Londons waterproof eyeliner across my lower lash line, it does a good job in making my eyes more defined in my opinion after that I curl my lashes ready to apply Maybelline New York colossal volume express (smoky eyes) mascara, I've used this since high school and it does a pretty good job. 
Since I'm not a big lipstick fan I will apply some baby lips or nivea tinted lip balm to keep them moisturised and add a little colour. 

So that's all I do for my makeup on a daily basis - remember you don't need makeup to feel or look beautiful but if you like wearing makeup like I do then by all means wear it :) 

Inspirations Post.

so I'm going to do this post on one of my heroes/inspirations: Demi Lovato

As you may know Demi is a worldwide public figure, where her story has been documented and helped loads of people including me. Like me Demi has depression/fought mental illness and has got through the bad times and continued fighting against the stigma and its demons. She isn't defined by her illness and that has taught me to battle my demons and get through the dark times.

There has been times in my life where i haven't felt good about myself and my body but she has taught me to love my imperfections and embrace them and that we are all beautiful in our unique ways. 
Demi's quote from her staying strong book "you are beautifully & wonderfully made" helps me on the days i love myself and days i don't.
