“Brow Zings”: My Complete Godsend

I hate my eyebrows. Like, actually hate them.

I always have and unfortunately I didn’t exactly help the situation…

When I was younger I had quiet dark bushy eyebrows. I never had a mono brow, just lots of hair each side that looked pretty scruffy. Obviously it didn’t bother me when I was little, but when I became a teenager it became an issue for me.

I had started comprehensive school and I (the totally un-cool girl) had to compete against the cool girls; Known as “The Plastics”. (Unsure of what I mean? Go and watch Mean Girls! It’s a must-watch movie).

So.. one night I closed my bedroom door and decided to get the tweezers out (which I obviously borrowed from my older sister). It hurt, but it felt great. I plucked and plucked away until I had thin eyebrows just like all the other girls. I loved it! The thing is, I didn’t even realise back then that ‘shape’ mattered. I thought as long as they were thin then I was safe.

Now, lets forward 6 years..  Continue reading

A make-up comparison – Beauty Guest Post by Alice

Today, I wonderful guest post by Alice to share with you! I hope you enjoy the post, and head over to visit Alice’s blog afterwards – agdoesmakeup.blogspot.com.

Hello everyone! I’m Alice from agdoesmakeup.blogspot.com and in a nutshell I’m a teenage makeup addict/shopaholic.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for a rather long time, you’re aware that Urban Decay’s Naked 2 palette is considered holy grail in the beauty blogger community, as it’s a covers-all-needs neutrals eyeshadow palette with matte and shimmery shades. Despite the time since it’s launch, the palette has remained at the steep price of £37.00, urging some drugstore brands to come out with dupes. Out of the few drugstore alternatives I’ve swatched, MUA’s Undress Me Too palette appears to be the closest match.
Lots of bloggers have mentioned MUA’s Heaven and Earth palette as a dupe, too.

I’m a brunette 🙂
 
3. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
 I have never actually dyed my hair which is surprising!

My March Must-Have’s

So I decided to choose 6 things I have bought this month and share them with you. I know a lot of people do ‘monthly favourite’ tags… But I’m not sure if this is the same thing. So just in case, I am going to call it ‘my March must-have’s’ instead 🙂

I also know I’m a bit early, as the end of the month isn’t until next week, but I won’t be going shopping again this week so I am going to share it with you now instead! I have never done anything like this before, so I apologise if I ramble too much!

“Eww, boys are smelly and gross”..to..”Woah, he is hot!” … Are girls growing up too quickly?

When I was twelve years old, I had no interest in boys, fashion, make up, or attention.

I was still a child. Boys were all “gross” and the talk of kissing them always made me say a typical young girls remark like, “eww, boys are smelly and gross”. I had no interest whatsoever in going clothes shopping and buying the latest fashion trends. The only time I would go clothes shopping was when I was literally forced to go with my parents. It was never a choice made by myself. The clothes I wore were plain, and typically something my mum got for me, because quite frankly, I didn’t really care what I wore. And why should anybody else care? Make up was always something I associated with grown ups. Other girls in my year at school began to wear eye shadow and a small layer of foundation, which then increased to a layer or mascara and some lip gloss as well. My hair would always be down – who cares that it was just hanging there? It’s not like I cared, so why should you?
