I have been feeling rather 'blogging lazy' recently. I have fallen into the trap of just searching and searching through other people's lovely blogs and then neglecting mine! Nothing exciting has happened this week, and yet it has been quite productive in the small things in life. Like doing the dishes, getting through the pile of laundry and reorganizing places that had been left in a bit of a state. It feels really nice to be on top of it all but I can't help but feel as though I am not very good at juggling things. I can't do the Internet and do the house work at the same time. It is like my brain shuts down if I try to get both done, it can't cope. Wow, just goes to show how bad I am at multi tasking!
I did, however get my 'Pinterest' boards up to a better standard so I know where each photo roughly is now. Yipee! It seems like a big deal to me but to someone who isn't obsessed to 'Pinterest' like I am, would not give a nickel!
Something I have learned this week:
I know this is a poor excuse for a blog post but I just wanted to some how write here because I have been missing it. I hope to get back on the ball soon.
I hope you are all fine and dandy. I am glad to say our weather has perked up here in Yorkshire. We have had tremendous wind and rain for the past few days but right now outside it is as sunny as can be. It has certainly put me in a happy mood!
Recently, I have been doing a rather a lot of pinning on 'Pinterest.' Especially pins related to living a healthier and happier life. I'd like to share with you a few things I have come across because I think the more people that read up on these things the better. I know that these tips have certainly helped me so I hope you, my lovely reader, will be able to learn something too.
Start February really well by trying a few of these ideas. I am certainly going to try it out!
Today I have been stuck inside with a dizzy head and a not so nice headache. The weather has been horrendous, which hasn't helped much. Yet, after several doses of paracetamol I am getting rather fed up and bored. So after watching 'Sprinkle of Glitter's' MUA haul on Youtube (which she made rather a long time ago) I decided to make myself a wish list of products that look rather splendid, not only that but cheap as chips, as us Southerners say!
First off is the 'Cover and Conceal Wand'
I have been wanting a concealer for quite some time in order to put under my eyes, because I have been rather tired during these darker days and it is starting to show. It seems as though night time passes by within only a few hours.
Then I noticed that they had a foundation that is Matte. I really dislike shimmery effect foundations as they look so fake on my skin and I personally prefer a more natural look. This one is of a tiny cost of only £2.00 and they have three colours to select from. I hope to get the 'fair' one as my skin is really quite white during the darker months.
As you may or may not already know from one of my previous posts I recently got an MUA blusher through the post, and I love it immensely. When I saw this one I wasn't overly impressed other than at it's price but when I read the description I was convinced it would be a very good buy. It can not only be used as a foundation but also an eye shadow.
I especially love this bronzer out of the two palettes. This, also doubles up as individual eye shadows.
All of these lovely items come to under £10! If I do get my hands on them I will do a proper review on them, for you.
With the elegance of Grace Kelly and the poise of Audrey Hepburn, Taylor Swift seems to fit right in with the many vintage ladies that I look up to. Her understated feminine style mixes the classic silhouettes of the 50's and 60's to create a fun and wearable whimsical look.
While normally a celebrity would be the last place I'd look to for style inspiration, Taylor is certainly an exception! I love how tasteful and natural her hair and make-up looks and her lady like wardrobe.
I watched a film earlier on last year called 'The Help'. I was so in love with the character's dress sense and the way they did their hair and make up. It was so authentic and lady like I couldn't help but swoon over the many dresses and bright lipsticks!
Over on 'Accordion to Kellie' we are all having a blog party (which to whom everyone is invited) in order to get us all out of the January Blahs.
I am filling out a few questions Kellie gave me in order to take part of her very, very lovely give away.
1) What's your favourite thing to do when you've been feeling uninspired?
I love to get myself out doors to freshen up. I like to take a camera with me and snap some pretty things that often go untouched and unnoticed. It always gets me in the mood to share what I have found to all of my lovely readers.
2) Tell us about a really great movie/show that you've just discovered.
I have always had a bit of a thing for Les' Miserables. My Nanny offered to take me to see it in the theatres in Paris but it never ended up happening so when I found out the new version of it was coming out in the Cinema I felt as though it kind of made up for it. I enjoyed it so, so much! The best film I have ever seen by far.
3) What do you like to do to change your mood?
Go for a drive with Chris and enjoy some good old country side!
4) Your favorite drink is currently...
Ahh, as some of you may already know I am in love with the Redbush Vanilla Tea. It is too good to be true. Some people say that it is too sweet and overwhelming but that is what I like about it the most. Me and my sweet tooth, oh dear!
5) When you hear the word exuberant, what's the first word that comes to mind?
6) What made you smile last?
My brother building an igloo in the front garden and him getting ever so proud even though it was only knee high. He is so sweet!
7) What five songs would make a playlist to describe your week?
Oooh, any tune from the movies: Brave, Little Women and Les' Miserables.
8) What's at the top of your creative 'To-Do' list?
Sew that silly hand bag and dress. Come on, Chloe you can do this!
9) The last thing you crossed off the above list was...
Neither, sadly. :(
10) Quickly - the first movie quote from the top of your head, please!
Oh, dear I have been sat here for a whole two minutes. I must have a very bad memory seeming as I only just finished watching a film.
11) The best thing about January is...
Snow, lots of it!
12) The worst thing about January is...
The cold. Hem, did that contradict myself?
13) What's your #1 resolution for 2013?
Stay motivated and learn to love myself more.
14) And lastly, share a quote or verse that you've found especially inspiring lately.
