Everything Is Going To Be OK

I'm definitely not known to be a constant and frequent blogger but often bloggers like me can have a moment where we lose motivation and inspiration (even trying to remember that word took 20 minutes haha!) when thinking of what type of post we would like to write or even what we actually want to write in the post. Taking pictures for new posts is quite tiring too especially in the UK when there isn't much sun so you need to rely on whatever weather you'll get for natural lighting.
Today I thought I would distract myself from constantly thinking about my AS results from a few days ago and sit down and write another blog post for all of you!
  
'Everything Is Going To Be OK' is a book which I received for my birthday from one of my friends and is full from different uplifting and motivational quotes to inspire you or just to cheer you up if you've had a particularly tough day.

I am a massive lover of quotes and always finding myself searching google and Pinterest for new ones or posting ones I've already found and love onto Twitter and Instagram. Everything Is Going To Be OK includes 66 quotes inside and I'm sure all of you will find at least one inside to cheer you up if needs be!
This is definitely one of you my favourite quotes from the book. I am known to put myself down often and I think this is one of the most uplifting quotes to improve your mood and to help you feel better about yourself


The book doesn't have any specific writer but the people who put together this book have also put together another book of similar style with quotes called 'You Are So Loved' which you can purchase here :)

One quote that I love but isn't in the book is this one, I feel like it gives people some more motivation to keep going no matter what may have happened.
"I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship"
I absolutely love finding new quotes so if you've got any that you turn to when you're down, I would love to hear them :)

Beauty & Fashion Haul


Hello everyone!

I feel like the majority of my posts seem to be hauls at the moment but today I thought I would show you what I've brought over the past few weeks so sit back and enjoy :)
The Body Shop Eau de Toilette - Mango £8.50 LINK
For my birthday, one of my friends gave me a gift card for The Body Shop and I finally decided to buy one of their new Eau de Toilettes. Although Pink Grapefruit is actually my favourite scent from The Body Shop, I decided to go for something different and purchase the Mango scent instead

Sleek MakeUP Blush - 926 Rose Gold £4.49 LINK
I have had my eye on this blush for a long time now and after seeing it featured in Zoe Sugg's haul video I decided to pick it up last weekend. It is known to be a dupe for the NARS Orgasm or NARS Deep Throat blushers. It is a gorgeous pink shade with a hint of peach and some gold shimmer :)

Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayon - 04 Peach on the Beach Free on 3 for 2 & 03 Orange Punch £7.99 LINK
Bourjois have recently jumped onto the chubby stick bandwagon and released their own version and dupe for the Clinique original. I picked up two shades, Orange Punch which is an orange shade with some pink and Peach on the Beach which is as it suggests, a peachy pink shade. Very pigmented, very moisturising apply really well!

Bourjois Radiance Reveal Healthy Mix Foundation - 51 Light Vanilla £9.99 LINK
This is a repurchase which I have mentioned multiple times on my blog, lovely coverage, blends effortlessly and lasts a long time :)  Mentioned here
L'oreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution £3.32 was £4.99 LINK
My trusted Taaj Micellar Water recently ran out and I couldn't afford to repurchase it for £16 a bottle or a bottle of Bioderma to try it out. I heard some great things about this so I decided to pick it up and so far I quite like it. It doesn't remove as much makeup as the Taaj water did and I'm not a massive fan of the bottle shape but so far I'm enjoying using it

New Look Yellow and Pink Ombre Aztec Swing Crop Top £12.99 LINK
We're getting some more sun and heat in the UK now and after getting sunburnt quite badly whilst waiting outside Wembley Arena for the X Factor Auditions, I really wanted something with thin straps avoid anymore pain! I loved the print on this with the mix between ombré and aztec - definitely a cropped summer staple :)

New Look Ruched Front Bandeau - White £2.99 LINK
As of the heat, wearing a full cami underneath a sheer top can get quite hot so I decided to get this small bandeau just to wear under some sheer tops

Primark Aztec and Floral Print Swing Top £5 was £6
Similar to the New Look top, I love the mix between the floral and aztec print on this! It is quite sheer but you could easily get away without wearing another top underneath

Primark Mint Green Top With Zip Detail £10
I love mint as a colour and it is just so summery that I loved this top when I saw it! I really like how the collar has the white fabric around the edge with the black polka dots to give it a different look and the zip down the back gives it something extra :)

Primark Cream Sheer Vintage Collar Shirt £12
Both this top and the next top I fell in love with when I saw them in Zoe Sugg's recent Primark haul! I love this vintage feel to this shirt with the small floral cutouts on the chest and the scalloped edging and small cutouts on the collar

Primark White Sheer Shirt With Floral Collar Detail £5 was £12
I am really loving tops with collars at the moment and I loved the floral detailing on this with the fabric and the little pearls, short sleeves with a little button and would look lovely in summer with some shorts. a skirt or some disco pants :)

Primark Mint and Pink Floral Pyjama Top and Shorts Top £3.50 Shorts £3
Primark has the best choice of pyjamas and they are very afforable! I found this set of mint pyjamas with pink flowers and a cream lacing on the edge. I was looking for some more pyjamas with shorts as it starts to get hotter in UK 

Primark Black Bow Pumps £5
I really needed some more black pumps and once again, Primark was the place to go and they have a lovely selection of clothes and shoes at the moment! These were a bargain at £5 and are made really well! I love the gold metal detailing on the corners of the bow and it adds a little extra!

Thank you for reading and let me know what you've been buying recently and if you've found any summer staples or bargains in Primark!
