You know when you see or read or hear something that makes you stop and think for a while? Like reading a book and realising it has a deeper meaning and when you finish reading it you can't just go straight back to your life, you feel like you should be doing something more important than going grocery shopping or painting your toe nails? I love things that make me feel like that. That make me realise that there is more to everyone's life than who has the hottest boyfriend or has the best clothes.

I recentely watched the film 'Keith'.  I dont remember how I got on to watching that film but I did. It started of being just a normal teen film, bit of love and drama, but then it became obvious that there was more to it. I don't want to spoil anything in case you decide to watch this amazing film, but I can tell you that this film made me stop and think for quite a while. About how we shouldn't waste our lives and how lucky we should be to be able to live. No one should tell us how to live. It is your life! Do what makes you happy, not what makes everyone around  you happy. 
I know it sounds cheesy, but the film also showed me that if you really love someone, you don't care about their faults. You love them for who they are.
On a completely different note and to return to my normal teenagerness - can we please take a minute to admire Jesse McCartney. Thank you ;)

All things summer

Summer has finally come! It is time to go and do all those things you can only do in summer. I collected some ideas of what to do on one of those boiling hot summer days. I could go on forever about summer activities but since I don't want this blogpost to be too long, I just put in a few of my favourites!

1) Wear your sandals!

This is one of the best things about summer, especially if you live in the rainy UK. Paint your toe nails with your favourite colouful nailpolish and go put on your strappy sandals! Nothing feels better than being finally able to show off your feet after a long and rainy winter/spring.

2) Go for a walk in the park!

This might sounds slightly boring but there are times when you just want to be alone, and instead of sitting in your room, dying off the heat it is so much better to just go outside, find the nearest green space and jut walk around. Maybe listen to music on your Ipod and just enjoy a bit of alone time. You could also take a book and a towel and chill a bit in the park. An amazing book to read is 'Looking for Alaska' by John Green. It is so different and interesting, and is just as good as 'The Fault in our stars'.

3) Make a cool drink!

In summer you sweat a lot. Obviously. One of the most important things to do in summer is drink a lot! But it doesn't have to be just water on its own. You can mix water with a bit of fruit concentrate - this makes the drink healthy and more fun to drink. Also nothing is more cooling than an ice cold drink! So don't forget to add loaaaaddssss of ice cubes.

I love Robinsons lemon concentrate. It has no added sugar/artificial colours or flavours. Mixed with water and ice cubes it makes and amazing drink for those hot days and it is superhealthy.

4) Go to a festival!

The most amazing festivals take place in summer. I really want to go to the Holi festival in London ( but sadly I missed it. But there are a lot of other, fun festivals to go to this summer. It is the perfect thing to do with your friends - you get to be outside, meet lots of other people and just have an amazing time!

I hope you enjoyed my ideas for summer! I have a lot more so please let me know if you want to see them. Have an amazing time :)

Easy and unique

Hey everyone :)
Its summer and since no one likes wearing loads of makeup (at least I don't) on a 27 degrees summer day, I thought I'd show you guys how to do a quick eye makeup that has a little unique touch. I am in no means a makeup professional and i can't afford the most expensive products so please be lenient towards me. Here we go:

This is my eye without any makeup. As you can see my lashes are reallllly light so mascara is like my life saver.

I started off with a small fluffy brush which I got a long time ago and therefore can't remember where I got it. I used this to apply a light champagne colour to even out the colour of my eyelids.
Max Factor - Creme Champagne 2

I then used the same brush to apply a light brown eyeshadow on my whole lid, followed up by a darker brown in the crease.
Manhattan Magic Duo - Pecan Brownie

To define my crease even more I used an even darker brown on a small brush and blended it out with the fluffy brush. The browns are not the focus of the eye makeup, they are used to give the eye more dimension, so don't apply it too heavily.
Art Deco - 520

Afterwards I used a white, shimmering eye pencil to line my upper lash line.
Collection Eyeshadow Pencil - Vanilla Sky 1

I followed up with a black eyeliner and tight lined my upper lashes too add volume. I also feel like liquid liner looks better if you tight line your lashes first.

I then added a very thin line on my upper lashes with a liquid liner.

Finally I put on several coats of my favourite mascara. If you need to, this is the point where you curl your lashes but I feel like mine don't need that. I might
  be wrong about that but I've tried it a few times and have never seen a difference. I also added a highlighting colour in my inner eye corner.
