COLOURBLOCKING & SHOULDA, WOULDA, COULDA

 
During this past holidays, I rested more than I would normally do and I feel terrific about it. I also read books and selected the books I wanted to read for the entire year – I have bought 2 of the books already and reading them. I also listened to a lot of podcasts, made videos and did more planning for the year. I also did some faffing around with the boys in our pyjamas, watched movies, ate at “sinful hours” and we had lots of fun in general.

So What did you do? What did you plan for the year? I am curious to know so please share them with me below…

BLACK FRIDAY SALE ::: ALL THE MONEY & TIME SAVING TIPS YOU NEED TO KNOW

Black Friday wasn’t as popular here in Ireland up until about 2 years ago.

I SPENT A DAY WITH YOUTUBE AT GOOGLE HQ, DUBLIN

 

 

At every chance I get, I do my best to inspire everyone to be who they want to be. On today’s post, I have been given another opportunity to share and remind you that it is okay to be who you want to be irrespective of your age, sex, circumstance, background,economic situation or where you live. Your present situation or status doesn’t define you, what you do in that situation is all the matters.

Last Saturday, 17/09, I had the opportunity to go and spend the day with YouTube at the Google Headquarters in Dublin. I opened my email about 2 weeks ago and I saw this invitation. I was humbled, honoured and happy because I was preparing for such a time as this and that is why I do my best to give my YouTube Channel everything.

Since I started doing Youtube, I do my best to upload at least one video a week. A lot of times I make 2 videos doing what I love; beauty, fashion and motivation / inspiration.

HOW TO APPLY BLUSH CORRECTLY

Make up for me isn’t great without a good blush. Blush adds a nice radiance to the cheek and a lovely accentuation to the face. Not only those two, a nice flush of blush on the face gives a healthy and youthful looking face.

Wearing blush is one thing and wearing it really well is another. So as not to look like a clown, it is super important to wear the appropriate amount of blush and to blend it well. How do you wear your blush? I will show you in a minute…..
