Most wanted

My most wanted at the moment is actually something that I kind of already own. It an acrylic makeup organiser. As I said I do in fact already own one, well I own a few Muji acrylic draws stacked on top of each other. They are absolutely perfect; I don't really have any fault with them. The only thing I will say is that some of the draws are tricky to open and sometimes get stuck which is irratiting as I then have to wait until they decide to open to use whatever is in it. So you can imagine how badly I want to get a new one and that new one it the GlamourCube Tall from GlamourLiving. 
Please dont judge this picture, it was the only one I could find. 
Im not even lieing when I say I am absolutly obsessing over this thing. The draws are all the right height for all different types of makeup aswell as having dividers into seperate everything. I mean you all know me and how much I love to orginise things. This is like heaven to me.

Random look into my life - Current obsession

Just so you all are aware of random things in my life, I am currently listening to this album none stop at the moment. I am a great believer in listening to every kind of music, and you will always find me listening to an array of music from The Faces to Frank Sinatra or like at the moment Little mix.

Nail soak recipe

As you all know by know I am in college for hair and beauty, one of the main rules, when you go into training, is that you can not have acrylic nails. This is down to an array of reasons, mainly you could jab someone in the eye with them but also when you are washing hair you can get water underneath them, and this leads to mould which leads to infection, you get the idea. So after having acrylics on for most of my teenage life it was time for them to go, as you probably can guess this was a sombre occasion for me. I mean I love my nails more than I will ever reveal, I feel like I should have had a funeral for them or something. 

After taking them off by soaking them in acetone for about 40 minutes (they were very thick). I saw the horrific state that my nails were in underneath. Which I am not showing you as they where that bad. 
So now not only do my nails look utterly horrific they also feel that way. I think because I have had no breathing time my nails have just given up on me. I have never in my life had my nails actually become painfull, at all times during the day no matter what I was doing they hurt. I think they where taking revenge on me.But luckily after I did this homemade nail soak they felt 100x better. 
So this is a recipe I made up as I went along. All the ingredients I used all have their individual qualities on your nails, the majority of them being for hydration. Which is definitely what my nails needed. I soaked each hand for 15 minutes then rubbed in all the excess and slept with it all still on. By the morning my nails were as good as new! It was like there was no damage at all.

Working at events - Psychic Sunday's

It is Sunday!! It is my favourite day of the week, the day that I can slob around in my pyjamas, put a face pack on and not give a damn about anything. It is also the home of my favourite blog post of the week, Psychic Sunday's. It feels forever ago that we both sat down and went through something spiritual. However, I promise you it is something that I am very much a part of, In fact, I am more a part of it than ever before. As many of you know for the past year I have been working as a reader at the world renown Psychic Sisters London and recently they sent me out into the big scary world to represent them at a huge event. As you can imagine this was pretty terrifying for me as I had never worked at an event this huge before. Sure I have worked at events before, but NEVER one of this magnitude.

Because I know you all so well now, I can admit to you that I was absolutly terrified. It is one thing being a reader and reading people everyday, but it is a completly different situation when you are the person going up to guest for a reading. I think maybe I have been a bit spoilt in a way, I have never had to go up to people and pitch myself to them. I have always had a middle man whether it be a person or a short bio, something that pitches for me. So for me going up to people and having to prove my self in a way, absolutely terrified me.

To prepare my self for this entire thing I went through a lot, I started my countdown at 4pm knowing that I had to be at the event at 9pm. I actually begun my prep with an 40 minute long bath. Yes, you read that right. It was without a doubt the longest bath I have ever had in my life, but what can I say when I am nervous I like to have a bath. After that I ate, one huge part of my process of reading people is actually having a full stomach. I couldn't for the life of me tell you why this is but for me it works. Everyone is always in debate about this factor within the Psychic community. I know plenty of people who say that when you are reading you must be fasting, or you can only have clean food. For me none of this works. I have to be full and happy.  Which brings me onto my next step of getting ready for an event, I then had a nap. I know this is a weird thing for a 19 year old to do at 7pm on a Tuesday night but again it is something that helps calm me down and open me up.

Unfortunately I can't give you any information about the event itself! I know, it's shit, I'm sorry. But I can tell you I had an amazing time and that once I got there everyone was so good at calming my nerves.

Dealing with illness

One thing that I have always been very open about is my medical history. It is something that I live with day to day and am constantly learning about. I feel when you have long term illnesses people tend to overlook it and just assume you are either milking it or we have suddenly been cured. This is actually something that happened on a daily basis for me, I am constantly being told "But why do you feel ill, I thought you where better". I mean yes I may have had a few good days but that does not mean that I will stay that way for a long period of time. One of the main things with having a long term illness is that your life is a constant roller coaster, you will have perhaps a few days where you feel absolutely fine and you could conquer the world. Then following that have a few weeks of not being able to get out of bed due to pain or fatigue.

The reason I bring this all up is that it has had a huge effect on my during my time off. I don't know why but for me every month is different, I may have a time where I am extreamly productive and I go to the gym every day. I then may have a time when I can not leave my bed and my fingers hurt to much to even press the home button on my phone. So today's post is not really a beauty post but an explanation as to why I am always in and out of blogging.

My College Expierience

My college experience //
Yes I know experience is spelt wrong, I however didn't know that when I was writing it.
As you all know I recently started college, well I say recently it was actually two months ago. I get asked all the time why I decided to go to college after not attending any sort of education since I was actually in school. The main reason being I just really wanted a qualification in my field. So I decided to apply to do a Hair and Media Makeup Level 2 course. I have been doing makeup as you all know for years and years and is something that I love to do. I have never really had a plan for where I wanted to end up in the industry; I feel like I am always dipping into different areas of it. However, I have always had a special place in my heart for the media side of makeup, I have always loved the artist aspect to it. As after all, I do not really like doing glam makeup on people constantly

Moving on to how I am finding it In college after so many years of not being in education. I'm not going to sit here and lie to all of you and say it it is the easiest thing I have ever done in my life. It is a bit strange going from being an adult and doing my own things in my own time, to suddenly working to a timetable and being treated like a child. I was very shocked to learn on the first day that we weren't aloud to use our phones or talk during lessons. Yes, It has been a long time since I have been in school. But I am dealing with it as I know in the long term I am going to be Thanking my past self for going through with it. So unfortunately this does mean that I sometimes get a bit slack with my postings, social media and all that stuff.

I have returned

Hello, everyone! I bet you thought you would never hear from me again or as some people thought, that I was dead. So I am here to assure you all that I am alive and well and I am back to blogging. I decided to take a short break from blogging and all types of social media for a while as I found myself getting ill from everything. A lot of this was due to me starting college, and I was finding it tough to juggle everything around at the beginning. But now that I have got myself into a nice day to day routine I can safely say I am ready to start blogging again! Starting from today, I will be back to my normal schedule plus a little surprise for you all in a few weeks to make up for some lost time. For the rest of this week, I will be posting things that explain everything that I have been going through that caused my short term break.
