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!


Favourites Series

Hey guys, I am here with yet another post about a blog series that I will be starting here for you.Β 

As you can tell by the title this will be a favourites series, but it isn’t going to be a monthly favourites like most people do, I will be doing it every two months (e.g. June/July). I am doing it this way as some months I don’t really have anything that I would say is my favourite for that month, so by doing it every two months means there is a chance that I will have favourites to talk about.

Also in the favourites posts, there will also be my TV, music and fashion favourites too.Β 

I am not sure when I will be starting this series but it should be in the next month or so.Β 


OOTD Series

Hey guys, I am here to tell you all about another series that I am wanting to start on my blog. As you all know I post every Monday and Friday but I am now wanting to post on a Wednesday too.

The posts on a Wednesday will be only outfit of the day posts. So each Wednesday, I will be posting a photo of one of my many outfits each week, what gave me the idea for that outfit, where I was wearing that outfit too and where each part of the outfit is from with links to each piece if possible.

As this is a beauty and fashion blog, I thought that this series would be a nice touch to keep fashion as a part of my blog every week even the posts on Monday and Friday will mainly be beauty posts.Β 

I do have another series that I will be starting on my blog, so look out for a post about that coming soon.


Product Empties Series

Hey guys, I am here with yet another series for you all. This series as you can tell by the title of this post is going to be a empties series.

Every 3 months I will be writing a post with a quick part about my thoughts on each product and if I will buy it again or not. As I will be doing this series every 3 months, it will be at the start of each season. So the first post will be coming to you in March.

This series will be good cause you all will get to see what I use up each month but will also show me what I am using more off each month too so I can see what I need to always make sure I have enough of in the house at any one time.

If you have any ideas about series that you would like to see me do on my blog then please let me know in the comments below and I will see if it is something that I can do for you.

I will be back on Monday with yet another new post for you all.


Brand Focus Series

Hey guys, I am here today to tell you all about a series that I will be starting on my blog. This series will be the first of many series that I will be doing on my blog over the next while but for now I am going to start with this one.

With this series, as you can tell from the title it will be a brand focus series. With this series I will only be buying make up, skin care or hair care from one brand each month.For that month I will be only using the products I buy from that brand. At the start of each month, I will be writing a quick post telling and showing you all the products that I will be trying that month. When I first use them I will be writing a first impressions post about how I felt about each product.

With this series, it will be mainly drugstore brands as I wouldn’t be able to buy from high end brands every month. I am not sure what brand I am going to start with first just yet tho will possibly be Maybelline or Max Factor first. I have a list of make up, hair care and skin care brands in which I want to try things from so I have a lot that I want to try, so will be able to do a lot of posts in this series.

Well I hope you will all enjoy this series when I get it started, the first post in the series will posted on Monday so check back then to find out what brand I choose to start this series with.

See you all on Monday
