The past couple of weeks have been kind of emotional. I have now handed my notice in at work and shall officially be leaving on the 7th August! Why you ask? Well, it’s pretty awesome really … My boyfriend has asked me to move in with him! Yay! Eek! It’s such a big step and not just because I’m simply moving into another house in town, ohhhh no. Nope. It’s because I shall be moving away to “sunny” Pembrokeshire, Wales and leaving my friends and family behind in Lincolnshire, England. It’s gonna be real tough leaving them and, let me tell you, I have shed my fair share of tears already just thinking about it! BUT I need to follow my heart. – That sounds sooo corny but it’s true. This is why I’ve been so emotional. Lord knows what I’ll be like on moving day! It is the right thing to do, though. I love my boyfriend and I love Wales – Pembrokeshire is so beautiful! On the week of my move, my boyfriend will be spending the week with me, helping me pack (just the essentials for now as we’ll be living at his parents for a while first) and then he’ll help me haul everything on to the train to my new home! I’m excited and nervous all at the same time! I don’t have a job in Wales yet but I’ve been job hunting everyday and am anxiously waiting to hear back from a couple at the mo so fingers crossed I can secure a job BEFORE I actually move down there.
So, there you go, that’s my big life changing news! Have any of you guys done the same and moved away to be with the one you love?
The fabulous Rachael has an awesome giveaway. Go check it out!

I am, a bit of a donut. If you remember back to my Makeup Revolution Haul at the start of last month, you’ll remember that I had a load of free items to giveaway that came free with my order. I placed, bar one item, the same order twice as I accidentally deleted something from my cart to qualify for all the free items when you spent over a certain amount, with the intention of sending them back. I just opened my drawer to discover, that I hadn’t sent these back – and it was now too late.
This however is good news for you.

Last week, I dropped my Mac Skinfinish Natural :(. While it fell to the floor in slow motion, I had a couple of seconds to wonder if it would survive…but the cloud of powder told me it was broken before I even opened it. I hope you have never had to experience this, but if you have: here is an easy solution to fix your broken powder product.
All you need is a bowl, a bottle of alcohol, a knife and spoon, a plastic bag, and your broken compact. This trick works for any powder product, so you could also use it on eyeshadow/blush/contour if you need to.
Tip the broken powder into the bowl. You will likely have bigger and smaller pieces, so use the plastic bag and the spoon to grind it down to a fine powder. The plastic bag is not a necessity, but I find it…

I can’t say how excited I am for today’s post! :D
Throughout last week, I achieved two blogging milestones. The Tuesday 12th May marked the first post I ever did. I hadn’t actually posted again after about a month or so, and only started posting regularly from the end of August. Nevertheless, that was when the journey first started!
Also, on Friday 15th May I posted my 100th post! I just can’t believe it! So much has happened in the past year and I’m so happy with my little corner of the internet :) There’s a lot that I still want to do and improve on, but hopefully that will come in time.
Most importantly, I want to thank each and every one of you for taking the time to read, comment and share. It is the time that you give to me and my blog that…

Ok, I’m just gonna lay it all out there …. I’m having a hard time adjusting to how the Shadowhunters characters are being cast. Or most of them. Choosing diversity over staying true to the books? That’s not ok with me. Am I the only one who feels this way? I am a stickler for tv shows/movies staying as close to a book’s details and storylines as possible. Particularly when it comes to the description of the main characters. I really admired Cassie when she wanted CoB’s movie characters to be like their book’s counterparts but felt disappointed when I found out, that for the tv show, she’d expressed that she wanted acting ability over character likeness. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for wanting the show to have great actors but you are not seriously telling me that the majority of the actors who walked through their casting door looking like the characters, didn’t measure up in acting ability? Really? I find that hard to believe. It just really makes me nervous for the future of the show and whether they will follow the book/s or go way off kilter like Trueblood and The Vampire Diaries have. That being said, I LOVE how TVD is turning out (the books just got ridiculous in the end) so I guess maybe there’s hope yet lol.
Sorry for the grumble, I’d just been mulling it over in my head and felt I had to vent. Being a long-time fan of the series, I feel really protective over it and want everything to be just-so, ya know?
Anyhoo, it’s gone 3am so I must try get back to sleep.
This is quite the read but totally worth it! Grab a cuppa … Are you sitting comfortably? ….. Ok, now you may begin. Prepare to be amused and enjoy!

It’s no secret that men and women are different – very different (And I’m not just talking about the extra dangling bits.) Okay, so perhaps men aren’t joyriding moon buggies on Mars and women aren’t baking space cakes on Venus, but there’s no denying that men and woman are different creatures, entirely, from seemingly different realms. Shooting back down to Earth, scientists have revealed that men and women’s brains are, indeed, wired differently, but perhaps not as different as one might assume. This is hard to believe when we find ourselves shaking our fists despairingly at the opposite sex, whilst struggling to understand the logic of their mysterious minds.
According to scientists, some of the more definite differences between the brains of men and women, include the size (It’s a fact, men have larger brains than us women!), genetics (The men have been hogging all the Y chromosomes!), location
