MIA

MIA

Hey guys, I am sorry that I have been MIA for so long. I have been super busy with work and have had loads of different events lately so haven’t had the chance to sit down and write anything.

I will be getting back into things over the next few weeks, as I have got a lot of new make up that I am going to be reviewing.

I know that I had all these plans for new series on my blog but I am going to stick to writing reviews for a while. Keep an eye out for the reviews as they are going to be a mix of drugstore products and high end products as I have been buying more high end things lately!

As also add me on snapchat (just.rachelxo) and follow me on Instagram (Just_Rachelxo) to keep up to date on my life when I am not putting up posts.

The Adventures Of Just Rachel xo

Hey guys, I am here to tell you all about a new series that I will be starting on my blog! 

As you can tell from the title this is going to be a series called ‘The Adventures Of Just Rachel xo’. With this series will be all about things that I get up to with Carl or even my friends.

The posts for this series will be now and again as I don’t really go out doing things every week so wouldn’t really have much to talk about half the time. 

Over the next few months I will have a good bit going on, with weddings, concerts and car shows so there will be more posts in more August time. There will be other things that I will be doing too, which is;

Shopping Trips

Meals Out

Nights Out

Day Trips

Road Trips

When I am out for things like meals, I will be also reviewing the place in which I went for food. If I do this, then that means anyone who lives in Northern Ireland or is coming to Northern Ireland can see places that are nice in which to go for something to eat.

Each post will also have photos in it. There will always be OOTD the each post as well so that you can all see what I worn for what it is I am going to! 

The first post won’t be for another few weeks, so be keeping an eye out for that!

Declutter my life – Make Up Update

Hey guys, I am back with a quick update for you all on the the declutter post I put up the other day.

Today’s job was my make up collection. I had already started doing parts of this last week but didn’t finish.

I am actually shocked at how much I got rid of.

Before I started, I didn’t really have any room in my make up drawer. I had make up stored everywhere in my room. From boxes under my vanity table, to random make up bags and in the bottom of my handbag.

Now I am able to store all my make up in the one drawer in my vanity (part from my lipsticks, lip glosses, liquid lipsticks and lip liners! They are stored in an acrylic drawer sent on the top of my vanity). I am still in complete shock that I now have it all stored in one place.

I do have a Mac bag filled with make up that is brand new that I don’t wanna use till I have used up other things.

I have an idea in my mind what I want my make up collection to be like. I will be writing a blog post on it when I have started getting things properly together for it.

Don’t forget to be checking back in over the next few weeks to see how things are going on my declutter with other parts of my room!

Declutter My Life

Hey everyone, I am back with my first proper blog post after my huge break from it.

Today I am going to be talking about the declutter that I am going to be doing. Over the years I have collected a lot of things from make up, to hair care and skin care.

I have started to declutter some of it, I have got rid of a lot of make up, skin care, hair care and other things that I have not been using or things that I have not been liking (Yes I have been keeping make up and things that I don’t even like).

I also wanna get things down to a more controllable level as it has now got really outta hand. When I say outta hand, if I added up everything that I have beauty wise it would probably be about £2000 worth of things.

When I first started to get into beauty and fashion and things, I wanted to get everything that was on the market. I wanted to try everything and was buying things for the sake of buying them. Now that I am in a new job and a new relationship, I am wanting to get my life into more of an order.
I will be bringing you all along on my path to getting things into a controllable level! To keep up to date with how things are going, follow me in Instagram – @just_rachelxo and add me on Snapchat – just.rachelxo

I AM BACK! WELL SORT OF!!

HEY GUYSS!!!!!!

It has been way too long! Have you all missed me?

Well I am back!! Well sort of. 

As you know if you follow my blog, that I took a break back in March because I had some personal things going on and had been working flat out. But now I have sorted them personal things out and have even started a new job.

I am also in a new relationship, as you all may have seen if you have been keeping up to date with me on Instagram (@just_rachelxo)

I am going to be getting back into blogging again as I have missed it loads. I will be slowly getting back into things as I am having a bit of writer’s block.

I know that I started some series before I took the break. These series may start up again but for now I am thinking of starting with a few new series and seeing how they go. The plan is to start with just two new series and see how I do then maybe add another one in after a while. 

Thank you to everyone that has still be viewing my blog while I have been away and also thank you to any new followers that have also joined!

Love From

Rachel xo
