I’m back! 

Hey guys! It’s your girl Viola, and I have returned from my break. 

I ended up taking nearly four weeks off instead of two, but taking a breather really helped me out with all the stress I was dealing with. Now I am feeling much better and I am ready to blog again. 

I have plenty of blogging ideas and here is a few to look out for.

  • A new product review
  • A primark haul
  • My new skincare routine

Well that’s all for now guys! I will see you all very soon.

Taking a break

Hey guys! Viola here.

Just letting you all know that i will be taking a short break from WordPress. Don’t worry, I’m fine, i just need to take a breather to figure things out.

There’s just a lot of shit going on that’s making me too stressed and I’m feeling a lot of mixed emotions right now, so i just need some space to set my mind straight. 

Anyhoo, I’ll be gone for two weeks, so not very long and I’ll be back with some more blogging soon.

Product Review #2 : Charcoal Products

Hey guys! It’s your girl Viola, and in the beauty industry, charcoal seems to be a big thing recently because a bunch of people realises its actually good for your skin and such. So last week I went into town and bought three products with charcoal in it and have decided to do a product review to see for myself if this stuff is any good.

Product #1

charcoal detox cleanser

SCORE – 5/10

This one I found by accident as it was in a home goods store so their main priority isn’t beauty products. When I squeezed some onto my hand it wasnt black, it was more of a grey colour. When I applied it to my face instaed of going bubbly like soap, it sort of went to a paste. I might not have used enough water or something, I don’t know. However, after using this 7 nights running before going to bed, I have woken up to very smooth skin  and I shall keep using it, which is why it has gotten a 5.

Product #2

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

SCORE – 7/10

I didn’t think this was going to work as well as a charcoal pore face mask because i felt like it would have just sat on top of my skin and acted like a wax strip, unlike a liquid face mask which sinks into the pores. Even though I was correct that it isn’t as good as a face mask, it did exceed my expectations in the end. Because when I inspected the strip afterwards, i did discover that it actually pulled out – not all – but a few of my pores. Therefore I think it a good buy. I was a bit painful to take off but that wasn’t a surprise to me, although it was a surprise that my nose felt a bit numb for 20 minutes after that, but it was nothing to worry about in the end.

Product #3

charcoal toothpaste

SCORE – 9.5/10

Black is the new white when it comes to this teeth whitening toothpaste. It is the best! I bought  2 boxes from Superdrug for £4.99 buy one get the second half price. After using this toothpaste for 9 days I can already see a difference. For this to really work you have to use this everyday. I’m definitely going to switch to this toothpaste and use it all the time from now on, because it does the job and it’s well worth the money. The reason it didn’t get a ten is because the minty taste is a little too strong than I would have liked but that doesn’t stop me from loving it.

That’s all for now guys!

My 1 year Blogiversary is here!

I can’t believe that it has been a whole year since I set up my blog and made my first post, this is insane! Not gonna lie, I sprinted for my laptop when I realised what day it was, but never the less here is my anniversary celebration post.

In the past year I have made 55 blog posts, this being my 56th. I know it isn’t as impressive as other people who have – by some sorcery ish – managed to blog everyday (I know my blog frequency is a mess, I swear I’ll try and blog more often), but this is huge to me. I cannot believe I’ve written that many on my page.

I went back and looked at my blog posts and it seems the most popular posts were…

By views – “GCSE Results”

By Likes – “Product Review” and “How to Keep a Clear Completion” with 12 likes

(BTW i will be doing a skincare blog again as my skincare routine is different now)

By Comments – “Leavers Assembly” with 13 comments, just beating “My Social Medias”

I am so thankful to everyone who has commented, liked, or even just read my posts. I honestly can’t praise enough how grateful I am to you guys. You could be spending your time doing anything else, you could be reading someone else’s blog who is way better at this than I am, but you decided to click on my posts and I can’t put int words how great that makes me feel.

I have learned so much from WordPress. I have learned not to judge people by first impressions as they aren’t always true and you have no idea what those people are going through. I’ve met some amazing people and made friends from doing this. I have become part of an amazing community.

Blogging makes me happy and I don’t know what I’d do without it.

Well, I guess that’s all I have to say for this post. I hope you’re having a great day, and I will see you next time.

Valentines Day

Hey guys! It’s your girl Viola, and it’s that time of the year again. The time of year when single guys and gals (me) hide away from the world where all the happy couples are enjoying themselves by going out, getting  gifts and having fun. Don’t get me wrong, i don’t hate relationships, but there is a difference between seeing couples who are in love, and getting relationships shoved down my throat. 

I for one don’t have an interest in the holiday, surprise surprise. Mainly because I’ve never had anyone to share it with, but it’s also because it’s never made sense to me.

It’s all about loving your significant other, but shouldn’t  you love them everyday? Not just one day a year. All it does is make single feel as small and insignificant as humaly possible. 

But I’m not letting the day go to waste. I’m going to watch all my favourite movies and have a good time. I’m perfectly happy being single, and if couples are going to be treating themselves, then I’m going to as well. 

Besides, everyone knows that the real Valentines Day is 15th February when all the chocolate is on sale.

An Update

Hey guys! I’s your girl Viola, and today’s post is just an update of whats been going on the past month.

My New Years Resolution isn’t going too well at the moment. I keep telling myself to eat healthier then I crack and go back to my old ways. I ended up buying a cupcake with lots of icing at the coffee shop today and I felt guilty when I finished it, but I am not giving up. It’s going to be a struggle, but I am going to try eating healthier and getting more exercise. On Wednesday, I don’t start college until 11:15 so I’m going to get up and go for a really long walk for a couple hours which will do e some good, and I’m going to really try and resist the sugary and fatty treats that stare at me all the time. I’m starting to drink at least a litre of water everyday which is good aswell.

My college course is going great. I’m making poached pears with custard and omelettes tomorrow in our little bistro which is cool, and the theory work isn’t a total bore. I was laughing so much this morning with my classmates that I started crying which screwed up my makeup.

Some idiot pressed the fire alarm last Thursday which set everything into caos, so that was fun.

And that’s pretty much it, thanks for reading!

New Year, New Me (a cliche but okay)

Hey guys, it’s your girl Viola, and I have a deep and meaningful post today, so shit’s about to get serious.

I have a long list of imperfections and things about me that get me down, because I’m human. We all have that something that we dislike about ourselves and want to change, whether it be your appearance, your emotions, or anything to be honest. If you are curious, here are mine. I’m sorry if I ramble on or bum you out but hear they are.

  1. MY NOSE a very common imperfection, I don’t always care about it but sometimes I look in the mirror and notice how wide and fat it is, and it’s quite short and stuck up in a way and then I feel like a freak.
  2. MY FOREHEAD – My forehead is very square and quite large, and I have a fringe to cover it up, but I’m bored with my hairstyle. I want a side fringe, well actually I would prefer no fringe at all, but because of my fat oddly shaped forehead I look weird without a fringe and I don’t feel confident enough to change my hairstyle.
  3. MY STOMACH – I am slightly over weight (I’m not exaggerating, I’ve checked) because I binge eat, a LOT and my stomach has most of the excess fat. I cannot wear crop-tops or low waist jeans because my fat stomach will spill out and look stupid, so I always wear long t-shirts, high jeans and a baggy shirt over my swimwear. I would like to have a flatter chest.
  4. MY BOOBS – I have huge boobs…and I’m not happy with them. I’m a 36E and I have been bullied constantly over them. I had a flat chest in year 7 and in year 8 I was happy with their size, because they were small and no problem whatsoever. However, they started to get a little too big and people started to notice. Boys would flirt and not in a good way, more like harass. Girls would call me a slag in the corridors. Rumours spread around hat I shoved tissues in my bra and I wore a push-up water bra. I used to be a good runner but I stopped because every time I ran they moved too much. I stopped enjoying PE class. I would hear the other girls betting on what my bra size was. One person even asked one of my dance friends to ask me where I got my boob job from. It was hell on earth. Many times I thought about having a breast reduction operation, but I would hate to have the hideous scars.
  5. HAVING NEVER BEEN IN A RELATIONSHIP – I’m 16, I’ve never had a boyfriend, I’ve never been kissed, every guy I’ve liked has never asked me out, every guy that has liked me (which has only been a couple) I’ve been utterly not interested in. This is an imperfection because I’ve had countless emotional breakdowns because of this fact about me. I’m don’t need a relationship to define me or anything like that, I’m happy being single a lot of the time, but it just makes me feel really lonely sometimes because it makes me feel like an un-datable freak, and I’m terrified of being alone. I had a couple of small “interests” in some people but my biggest crush was when I was 13. All my other crushes was people I barely talked to, but this guy was actually my friend. I liked him for 3 years, I’ll even say as far as loved him to be honest. Most of my other friends knew. The only one of my friends who didn’t know was my now ex-friend who was a bitch, and went on to date him a year after I stared to have feelings for him (they’re not together now). But the thing is, he liked ME the same time I liked him, but for a reason which I still don’t know, just when we were so close to being together he stopped liking me and dated her instead. We don’t talk anymore but I still see him in the corridors in college which kills me every time it happens, cos there’s that awkwardness when we look at each other because of the history that’s there. Plus the fact that I still have feelings for him.

The reason I’m talking about my imperfections is because I want this year to be great, and for it to be great, I’m going to take this list and throw it in the fire. This year is going to be a fresh new me where I don’t give a flying crap about my imperfections. If I want a side fringe, I’ll get a side fringe. If I want to wear a bikini, I’ll wear it with pride. If I want to take some risks, I’ll take them. If I have big boobs, so what? And screw that bastard who broke my heart, I don’t need him, I don’t need any relationship. I’m single, and I’m proud!!!

What I got for Christmas

Hey guys! It’s your girl Viola, and HAPPY NEW YEAR! Gosh I haven’t blogged since last year!!!! 2016 has been fun, but time to move on to a brand new year of 2017.

Unfortunately,  it being new year, this means that Christmas is indeed over for yet another year, so sad.

However, today I’m going to share with you guys what I got this year. I was going to do a video with commentary but I can’t as I have lost my voice due to a very bad throat. 

Also,  I just wanna say that I am not bragging or trying to offend anyone. I love seeing what other people got for Christmas so I just thought you guys would like to know what I got. 

Now, my friends and family have rather spoiled me this year and I can’t thank them enough. 

The first thing I got was this fluffy black throw for my bed which is so unbelievably cosy. I just love wrapping myself in it in a little cocoon. 

… and to go with it I got this new duvet with a New York print on it, and two new cushions. 

Clothes wise I was short on Christmasy clothes as I only had one t-shirt and one jumper,  so my parents got me a few things from Primark which is where I get most of my clothes. 

They got me these items which I think are just perfect. 

I’ve also got all this stuff. 

I’ve got these products. 

I’ve got these books,  CDs and DVDs. 

My nan spoiled me with these beautiful earrings. 

I’ve finally got these brushes which I have wanted FOREVER. 

And I have all this chocolate!!!!!!!! 

Well that’s all for now guys,  I hope you all had a great Christmas and I will see you all later this new year.
