Meet the blogger Q and A

Hey M’lovelies,

So, I saw this post over on http://www.thetullytales.com (full link at the bottom) and I though thought it would be fun to give it a go.

What’s your Favourite Book?

The perks of being a wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. I feel in love with this book from the first chapter and have read it so many times now. I’ve never been able to pin point why but I always gravitate towards it.

What’s your favourite ice cream flavor?

I am very very boring and love vanilla. My local ice cream shop from back home,Crecies, has the best vanilla ice cream and nothing will ever beat it.

What’s your most embarrassing childhood memory?

This sounds like a copout but I actually can’t remember. I have an awful memory both long term and short term.

What are your 3 Favourite Movies?

1. Dirty Dancing
2. Labyrinth
3. The Great Gatsby

What’s the most beautiful place you’ve ever been?

There is a lake not too far from my in wales and it is just gorgeous too look as on a sunny day and it’s surrounded by trees as well which just makes the scenery even more beautiful.

What accomplishment are you most proud of?

This blog!

Who would you like to live like for a day?

My step mother! That women is the most hard working, non stop person I know and I’m so grateful for her. I’d love to change places with her just for one day to give her a break.

If you could ask your pet 3 questions, what would they be?

1. Hugo – Why are you so bonkers?
2. Honey – How are you settling in?
3. Snowy – Where do you wonder off when you’re let outside?

When you’re having a bad day, what do you do to make yourself feel better?

I generally do some blog planning or crochet (I’ve recently learnt how).

Using one word, how would you describe your family?

There is none.

Who is the kindest person you know?

I know so many lovely and kind people. In fact … I don’t think I’m friends with anyone who isn’t just fantastically kind. But, when I think of kind my mind always goes to Mairead, my boyfriends mother. She has been so lovely to me from day one and has really made me feel like a part of the family. You’d struggle to meet a kinder or more supportive person and her partner Keith has been amazing too!

I avoid them like the plague so none!

Ryan Reynolds or Zac Efron for sure

A pediatric nurse but I knew I could never watch a child die which is why I didn’t persue it.

Writing

Creating an effective setting

Hey M’lovelies,

Today I wanted to talk to you about creating effective setting in your writing.

Setting is so incredibly important when it comes writing a story because it can really draw the reader in. However, it has to be done right or it can completely ruin it.

The first thing you need to ask yourself is ‘why is this relevant to my story?’ because a setting should always serve a purpose. For example, a characters bedroom should tell us something about them or where they live should tell us something about their upbringing. Is your character part of a specific culture? Can the setting be used to tell us more about that culture?

If it adds nothing, then it doesn’t need to be there.

Include the 5 senses. Our senses are the most powerful tools and all serve a very important purpose. If we lose one sense, the others heighten which goes to show how key they are to human survival. Using the senses creates a strong visual image in the readers mind and pulls them in.

Use pathetic fallecy to aid the setting. It’s all well and good having a creepy house at the end of the street or a beach, but the weather will help the setting to serve its purpose. A dark stormy night will make a creepy house a lot scarier than a sunny day. But remember, it’s okay to do the unexpected and juxtapose the two as well.

I hope you guys have found this useful and I’m sorry it’s short but I didn’t want to make it a long and boring read. Please let me know any ideas or feedback you have in the comments below.

Things I want to try in 2019

Hey M’lovelies

I was going through town today and I couldn’t help but think that there are so many things I want to try in terms of make up and just new experiences.

However, I still want to share them with you and maybe you guys can tell me your experience with them and if they are work the money.

Too Face HangoverRX primer

This is one that I did actually pick up today because my skin has been crying out for some hydration. I heard that this is just the best primer to allow your skin to be at its bests. It says that it is going to hydrate, improve elasticity, smooth, make my skin more radiant and give the appearance of a good nights sleep.

This sounds like my dream primer and I really can’t wait to try it out. Who knows, maybe it’ll appear in my February favourites.

Crocheting

I don’t know why but I really really want to learn how to crochet. There is just something about it that draws me too it. I know it isn’t easy but I’m so determined too.

Wet N Wild Megaglo Blushes

I’ve really been enjoying bush recently as it brings back some colour to my ghostly complection. I want to try these specific ones as they have a gorgeous shade range and have a little glow to them which I adore.

Olay Regenerate Under Eye Cream

I have really dull and dry under eyes which need a little bit of life brought back to then. I’ve heard this cream works absolute wonders for that exact issue but my only problem is … It’s £21.

Revelation Skincare

Revolution has just released their own skincare line and I want to try it out of sheer curiosity. It’s cheaper skincare and if it works well then I will be over the moon. I’ve been really into taking care of my skin recently but it’s so expensive and I could do with a cheaper alternative in my life.

I hope you guys have enjoyed this post. Do you have anything that you want to try or anything you want me to review then send me an email or share in the comment section.

Maybelline Master Contour stick.

Hey M’lovelies,

I have never been one for contour and if I was to do it then I would use powder as it has never done me wrong.
However, I was recently in my local Wilko and I spotted that Maybelline had a sale on, which I thought was the perfect time for me to pick up a new item to review for you guys. I settled on their cream contour stick because I had never tried one before and I wanted to see what all the fuss was about

I picked up the shade ’01 light’ which came in the shape of a bullet with the contour on one side and a highlight on the other. Having the two sides is very handy because it keeps your contour looking sharp and clean, but the stick does get very messy as the two products spread across eachother.

The contour shade is the perfect light, ashy, brown tone which perfectly complements my skin. I initially expected it too look quite orange on me but when I blend it out, it looks like very natural shading. The highlight is not a highlight on me (shocker!) but it matches my skin well and still keeps the contour looking sharp but doesn’t brighten

It does take a little bit of work to blend it out with a sponge and is certainly easier to blend with a brush (still takes it time). I found that the contour can end up looking quite patchy if you don’t work fast with the blending but if you do … It’s perfect.

I do like how it looks on the skin but for me it is more effort than it is worth.

I hope you guys have enjoy this post and I shall post again tomorrow xx
