Getting to work!

Right so I ave started to film the final version of my Maleficent tutorial which is very exciting but also I have something even better lined up.

I just made a massive makeup order online and I just couldn't resist! Finally I have found (Don't know ow long it's been there for...) the elf website for the UK. Everything is still very inexpensive and literally I just went on an absolute frenzy. So suffice to say there is going to be a haul video for that :) I hope you guys are as excited as I am.

There have been so many products from the brand which I have wanted to try and because the brand as so much hype around it then I am very interested about the quality and finish!

Anyway, I'm going to try and get up this tutorial and also one other before Halloween :)

Stay tuned :)

Updates and Apologies!

Recently I posted a schedule of events for me to work from. This was a list of videos I was going to post over the course of 1 week, it had Halloween tutorials and everyday things. Unfortunately about 3 hours after I posted that and filmed the video for Friday I got super sick. I was literally comatose all of Saturday from being so unwell. Now I am trying to play catch up.

So a combination of Windows Movie Maker being a total arsehole and not having some of the materials I need it means that I am totally behind on what I wanted to do!
Suffice to say I am going to work to get the original video up tonight and work on doing at least 1 more Halloween tutorial before the 31st. I think I will post a really easy one a few days before hand just because I know there will be loads of people who are last minute costumers who need a little inspiration!

I'm working on getting an everyday makeup tutorial up for you all and the other main tutorial I want to do is Maleficent! I have nearly everything I need but a cool head-dress and I'm sure that if you are doing this then you will buy the costume so it may end up just being the makeup tat you get to see, even though I would love to do the full costume. So that might happen.

Anyway please keep your faith in me and have patience :)

Much love

25 Facts About Me!...Stolen From Catherine :P

I'm sure that you will have seen this post already on Catherine's blog and if not then go check it out --->
Anyway, I thought I'd give this one a bash and give you a bit of insight into my life aswell! So here we go :)
P.S. Sorry Catherine I stole some of your questions, I got stuck!

1. My middle name is Anastasia, for a long time I hated my middle name because it was so unusual and like I felt as though I needed to explain how it was spelled or why my parents gave me that name, like I would know or something, but now I really like this name because it's unusual :)

2. All time favourite food - Sausage and mash! Nothing like a bit of comfort food and although I love sushi and pizza and stuff and would have claimed it as my favourite it's truly not. I've had time to think about this and I know it seems weird to put so much effort into this but it's deffo sausage and mash, I could eat it forever! of course with peas and gravy, no onions tho.

3. I have an unusual knack for this one and I'll have to explain it. If someone drops change on the floor I immediately know what type of coins they have dropped. It may sound weird and like I'm obsessed with money but really I don't know how I acquired this skill.

4. I have big hands, big feet and a big nose. These are also things I hated about myself for a long time and I actually wanted a nose job but now I really don't care because I'm not trying to impress anyone and the only person I should be impressing is myself and I'm happy with my looks now because I know what works for me.

5. I have weird gold rings around my pupils. It looks cray considering I have blue eyes :) From what I understand, it's called Central Heterochromia. Mine is common in those with low amounts of melanin in the iris tissue and trust me, I have low amounts of melanin everywhere!

6. Me and Daniel have been together near enough 6 years! That literally means that I was 13 when I started going out with him!

7. My favourite colour? Green! Closely followed by purple but purple is easier to wear than green. But to be more specific then it would be chartreuse.

8. I'm terrified of elevators, I have been working on this a lot lately but I'm scared that the cables will snap and I will fall to my death. Sorry if I have just made you scared of them too.

9. One thing that may grind on me more than anything in the world? When people don't shape their eyebrows correctly and their either too short or too long for their facial proportions.

10. It pisses me off when you can bend over backwards doing something nice for someone and then get nothing in return, not even a thank you. I find it difficult that someone could not be so appreciative even if it was just a thankyou.

11. I'd like to think that I'm not a snob about certain things but I totally am. For instance, coffee. I can't get over the fact that people are employed by a major coffee chain and yet cannot make a decent cup of coffee. Don't get me wrong, I love Starbucks but I only go for the flavoured/seasonal coffees and you wont ever see me with a regular latte from there. I really want to go behind the counter and show them how it's done. Rant over. Don't ban me please.

12. Contrary to popular belief I do like drugstore makeup, I know that quite a lot of the makeup I show is highend but I assure you that when I like a product I will show you it, I don't shun away from cheap because cheap doesn't mean rubbish!

13.I'm quite a shy person. For a long while I dreaded starting new jobs because it means that you have to get to know new people and it'shard work and you can't guarantee that everyone will like you. Unfortunately I left a great job where it was like one close knit family and I wish I had never left but hey I've just got to roll with it!

14. I love makeup, I know this sounds totally obviously but if I don't have makeup I would be lost. I don't really have any other hobbies to be honest and this just makes me feel great, I love dolling myself up because I don't really feel confident in bare skin and when I wear makeup I feel like a totally different person.

15. Favourite film? I don't really know, I have a favourite selection of films and I'll give you a few!;
Matilda, Cry Baby (Yes that totally cheesy one with Johnny Depp in), Kill Bill 1&2, Kick Ass 1&2, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, Mean Girls, Singing in the Rain and err so many more haha.

16. Favourite artists - Lady Gaga, Queen, David Bowie. I don't really care when people say that they don't like Lady Gaga or David Bowie but whe they say that they don't like Queen I almost feel personally insulted.

17. I love Hello Kitty. I would have Hello Kitty tattooed on me if I could come up with a good enough design.

18. I have already picked out my first tattoo and it seems really daft but it's a child hood thing ok?!

19. I feel really lazy at times. I really think that I don't do enough physical exercise and I am actually just to lazy to change that! I actually had a dream last night where I couldn't play badminton as well as I used to and that really wasn't something I wanted to see. I really want to play badminton again.

20. My one massive goal in life is to complete a marathon.

21. I want to be married and have one child by the age of 25 I know this sounds really young but it's just something I want to do and I want to have traveled a whole lot before that!

22. I a still looking for my ideal job, I have tried almost everything and I can't seem to get it right for me.

23. I am nearly 20! in fact I will be 20 in 5 days :) I love my birthday and I love when my birthday is. October seems like a special month :P

24. Although I am, in my opinion, very grown up for my age I think that if you put my in the company of the right people I will act like an utter 5 year old and not in a spoilt brat kind of way but in the omg she's so ditzy and special kind of way.

25. Lastly, Catherine I am again sorry for stealing this from you but it needs to be said. I have a lot of love for everyone who reads my blog/ watches my videos even if you have only visited once. I appreciate it all because I at least feel as though it's worth it :)

After that lengthy and personal post I think you all deserve to see my new video!

Speak soon!

Suggestions please!

Quick post! :P

So I just wanted to give you my schedule of videos for the next week just so you're not getting bored of waiting for them.

Friday - Halloween Tutorial
Saturday - My Everyday Makeup
Sunday - Halloween Tutorial
Tuesday - Halloween Tutorial
Thursday - Halloween Tutorial.

This will probably just be for this week only that it will be so frequent. I wanted to cram in as many Halloween tutorials as possible to give you all some time for practicing. I also wanted to include something normal just to break it up a little bit. I feel like I'm neglecting my YouTube a bit so I want to make up for that. I still have decided when I will upload videos on a regular basis though I feel like it should be a Saturday because it does seem the logical choice for me at the moment. We shall see.

Truth be told, I need to make a proper schedule of videos I want to do for you guys. So what would be super helpful is if you could give me some suggestions of what you would like to see makeup wise. Make it as creative as possible and I'll see if I can make it happen!

Stay tuned ;)

Last night!

Last night I slept over at Catherine's house. I know a lot of people think that because you're technically an adult you shouldn't have sleepovers. I say bullshit to that idea!

I was so excited because I have known Catherine from a very young age and we could never have a sleepover and now that we are older and the opportunity presented itself then we were both so excited!.

Anyway, we were quite productive and managed to film a video for my YouTube channel. I decided that I wanted to do my September Favourites video with Catherine as it was a good way for her to get a taste of what it's like to do videos.

Suffice to say, the sleepover was amaze! We talked, watched films, ate so much and just had an amazing time!!

Here is the video that we made;

Quick update on me... (Jobs, Hopes and Dreams)

Lately I have been feeling a little blue.

I'm going to try and not make this a depressing post but I thought I would just share my feelings.
I'm at a point in my life where I feel like I should get what I want, I know this sounds a little conceited but I firmly believe that everyone deserves to be happy and have a high quality of life. I'm not naive, I do know that life is difficult and as The Rolling Stones would say, you can't always get what you want.

There are various aspects to my life which I am feeling quite disappointed about;

I would love to have moved out with my boyfriend by now but this can't happen because I can't find a stable job that I'm happy with. I know that a lot of people don't like their jobs and you've just got to suck it up and I have tried, but it's difficult. I do honestly try my best at my job, but to be honest (without sounding like I'm trying to deny things) sometimes a job just isn't right for someone and really at this point I just want to give a bit of advice to everyone.

-This is something that is currently effecting me and it makes me feel bad but trust me, it might not be your fault that you are bad at your job!
Don't go assuming that this is true for all situations, that's the wrong way to go about it. I always feel exhausted at the end of a day like I've put in 110% but then by the following morning I don't feel like I've done enough. I can't improve, I'm constantly messing things up no matter how hard I might try and I just feel like a burden on everyone that I work with. Fortunately I have very understanding bosses and I have spoken with them about this, various meetings have gone by and we agree that this job just isn't right for me. It's happened to me before but I have also had jobs where I have done really well and showed a real talent for it. I think that if your heart isn't in the job (by this I din't mean that you don't put in effort but it's not what you want to do for job) then you just aren't really going to succeed. There's nothing wrong with wanting your dream job and there's no reason you shouldn't fight for it but I think you should never leap without a solid ground to land on. Seriously, if you are in my situation, don't do something stupid like quit your job and then realise you have no form of income to support yourself. Stick it out a little while, it might be a phase, but if you really feel down about your job then by all means get searching for a new one and only when you have options to leave then it will be a good idea.

I supposed my other concern is money, like everyone else, I want more money. I would love to afford nice things and again this is something I don't think anyone should be ashamed of, it's ok to want nice things. I suppose there is nothing I can do about this at the moment and I am sure this will come in time and I will get the things I want.

I know where I want to be in life and I'm sure that many others do too but it just takes work and patience. One day we will get exactly what we want if we work for it.

Anyway, I know I have rambled and seriously, I have literally just written whatever came into my head so if it doesn't make sense then I am really sorry haha :)

I hope you liked this post and I hope that it helps.
Keep smiling :)

P.S  Please don't go taking my advice as absolute certainty, this is just based on my experiences. If you are experiencing difficulty at work/home/wherever then please speak to someone, after all a problem shared is a problem halved ;)
