Having just cut about ten inches off my hair, I thought I’d do a pro’s and cons of my decision…
- Its easier to brush and less knotty
- looks nice down and less like I’ve been dragged through a bush
- Its good for warm weather…. yet I cut mine in time for winter… (possible con)
- It uses less shampoo and conditioner to maintain
- I cant pull it into a pony tail…. which has led me to discover I hate having my hair down…. I want my hair long enough to tie up with a thousand kirby grips….
- Its harder to style…. I’ve been looking at hair styles for the christmas ball and my dads surprise birthday party… but theres nothing
- Its not winter friendly. My neck has never been so cold…
- Its also kind of annoying how it keeps slipping down the back of my coat
Although I don’t fully regret cutting my hair short, it has made me realise a few things like the fact I actually really love just shoving my hair in a pony tail. I am definitely growing it out but I am glad I cut it short.

I’ve finally manned up and done something I’ve been wanting to do for ages. I’ve started a Vlog YouTube channel. I’ve tried countless times to make a channel with weekly videos, however I just don’t have the time to sit down and plan, film and edit and video that’s going to be as good as I want it to be, so this way I can do that.
I’ll be uploading weekly vlogs (my life isn’t interesting enough for daily vlogs, especially since I’m going to uni in September). So I’ll be filming through out the week and putting it into one weekly video that will be uploaded every Sunday. The perks to this is that if I then get a video idea, some extra time or a product to review or something to haul, I can then do a sit down video. I’ve been wanting to do YouTube for nearly five years now and just haven’t built up the courage to do it, and by the time I did, I didn’t have enough time to dedicate to it. So heres to another chance. Please subscribe to my channel, I should have my first video up this week!
I’ve been wanting to get hold of some Anastasia Beverly Hills brow products for a while and especially since getting the eyeshadow palette, I just needed one. I’d seen everyone raving about the dip brown pomade on YouTube and other blogs for ages but wasn’t sure if that was the one for me, especially when I saw the brow wiz. I decided that to really decide which one is for me, I’d have to buy both.
Turns out they were both for me but in different ways. The brow wiz works amazingly for really effortless natural brows, I find this is my go too for if I have work or just running to the shops quickly but don’t want to look like I’ve just rolled out of bed, even though I most probably have. However I don’t think this would be the best if you want defined brows, the product isn’t very pigmented and you cant really outline your brows well because the pencil drags your skin and the line goes everywhere. If you just want to roughly fill in your brows this is definitely perfect.
The dip brow pomade I ordered in the same shade as the brow wiz because that colour matched me well, however the dip brow seems to be slightly darker, however that could have been because I wasn’t expecting the product to be as soft or as pigmented as it is and put way too much on the first time I used it. I feel this will be my go to more for if I’m going out somewhere as its more of a glam, defined brow. I haven’t had too much of a chance to play around with it and try different things like making it a natural look, but I can tell once I get a bit more used to handling the product it will be amazing.
Along with the two eyebrow products I also purchased the Anastasia eyebrow brush. This has become my favourite brush of all time, its so precise and makes the product go on so smoothly, and the little spoolie comb bit at the end is super good at blending out and spreading the product a bit more. A definite recommend.
So its about half ten and I have loads of energy and I’m totally excited over nothing. I’ve been up since half six this morning and spent a whole day stressing at college, yet I have enough energy to willingly go for a sprint. My dog is also totally judging my dance moves to Beyonce right now as well.
Today I’ve had a lot of time to thing about the future and where I’m hoping next year will go, because to be totally honest, this years been shit for a majority of us. Next year I am viewing as the start to my adult life. I’m nineteen and living at home with my parents and until the beginning of this year I had no idea where my life was going. I’d had a shitty end to 2015 and 2016 started looking up until a few months ago. Either way in 2017 I have a lot of ideas. I’ve applied for new jobs because I want to get out the bike trade and into something more stable, and I’ve also applied for university to study at St Georges University in Tooting, or Kings College London or Brunel – we’ll see which if any accepts me. Either way, I feel what ever happens with uni will happen for a reason, I’ll either go study and work my butt off for three years potentially five if I gain a masters, or I’ll go into full time work and work my way up through experience. Either way what ever happens, happens for a reason.
Apart from uni I’m also going to quit karate and try out running. I wanted to try running a few years back but I was a lot more shy then and it clashed with karate, and at that time I was very much into karate. However its recently been causing me more stress than its worth so after my national grading to get my brown belt in two weeks, I’m gonna take a break and give something else a try. Running will also help out with my cycling as well which is a plus. I’m so excited about trying it out that I’ve been googling outfits and I’m so excited I can’t actually contain my excitement.
I’m also going to brave it and follow my fashion and make up instinct. I know the kind of fashion that I like and I know my style, I’m just not confident wearing my style. I’ve been trying to build up to it, but I always feel too over dressed if ya get what I mean? So next year I’m going to try and get more confident with myself and how I look.
Either way next year I am hoping is going to be a good year for me and I’m hoping to make the most of it. I know its a bit early, but I genuinely have so much energy right now I had to get some of it out, and hey, thats what a blogs for right? Either way there will be an eye look posted soon with my new Tarte eyeshadow palette!!
