Shopping Haul MY FIRST HAUL POST !!

Hello everyone ! ,
                          Now as promised for a while I have been mentioning I had a haul coming up for you                             guys,My lovely readers oh how I love you ! So without further ado here is my first Haul post.

I do love mt shopping and I feel when I go I have earnt few treats by saving up my money so when my friend needed to go into town ( Manchester,If anyone is familiar i'm sure some of you are) I thought to my self. 'I've done well saving why not have a little shop around and see what goodies I find and then I can do a post for you guys. I didn't even break the bank I think I spent around the twenty mark and came home with £7 so was chuffed with myself !

My first purchase I was very exited about I had heard of Lush but ever since reading the lovely 
Lolli K's post on her Lush face mask I was super eager to try it out !! as soon as I walked into the store I wondered how I was ever going to get out. It smelt that amazing I didn't want to leave ! So I picked up the Spacegirl bath bomb and it was only £2.25 ! 
I would also like to mention that they are very much against animal testing and the bath bomb packaging and also the bags have this logo on them :) 
It is super sparkly and can't wait to try it out it has almost a citrus scent to it but i'm awful at describing scents so go check out their website :)  

I cannot remember what order of shops I went in so this could be all higeldy piggeldy hehe!
 Now I have wanted this brush for as long as I can remember and I am so glad I finally bought it ! I love it,It gives a great coverage and is super soft ! I highly recommend this brush for anyone who needs a new foundation brush or is starting to get interested in makeup :) £9.99 Boots
 Now the good old pound shop I didn't half find some great products in there ! Rimmel glam eyes Traffic stopping eye shadow trio Poundworld £1
 Just so you guys can see the colours a little better
 Here are the swatches,I was slightly disappointed with there pigmentation and I felt that I had to use quite a few brush fulls of product to build up the colour but that could be my old but faithful No7 brush I need to invest in new eye brushes. Any suggestions that arent too pricey ? :)
 REVLON nail enamel in the shade mischievous 360 Poundland £1
 I absolutely love the colour and it only took one coat to paint my nail, Sorry about my horrid nails ! I'm in the process of trying to grow them but with what I do at college it just doesn't happen :(
 Oh MUA how I love you and your lippy's ! this is the shade 16 Nectar It's such a lovely coral colour and I just love it ! Superdrug £1
 Here is a Swatch of the lovely lippy :3
 Maybelline Pure-Cover Mineral Concealer in the shade 02 Natural
 Garnier Fructis Strengthen and shine 2 in 1 Shampoo and conditioner Bodycare £1
My friend recommended for me to buy this and I'm so glad she did because it has left my hair feeling fresh nourished and shiny ! Does exactly what it says on the tin !.... Well Bottle
 So Lip balms I love the SO...? body sprays so when I saw these I just didn't want to leave them I wasn't expecting them to be that great but I love the colours and they smell just divine ! Poundland £1

Pantene Pro-V Aqua Light Lightweight Nourishing spray, I first came across the aqua light range through watching one of Zoella's empties video's and she had used up the shampoo and Conditioner from this range. What drew me in was that it was said to be so lightweight it's like there's no product in your hair and I fully agree it has left my hair feeling so nourished and shiny,It looks a little strange in the container but you shake it up and both the liquids mix together then after you have used it it settles back to it's congealed self. Poundworld £1 

 This was on offer in Superdrug so I had to pick it up as I hadn't tried this one out and I love the scent and am wondering why I haven't purchased this before ! Superdrug £1.49
 Boot's Natural Collection Mango and Papaya body spray, This literally makes my mouth water every time I spray it I love it so much and will certainly be repurchasing it when t runs out ! I'm also going to try out the scrub I think. Boot's £2
 Last but not least this lovely Bow now anyone that knows me knows my addiction with bows I don't Know what it is bout it but I just can't resist a good bow ! They go with almost everything and suit everyone and in the sale you just can't refuse it is also as smooth as a baby's behind ! Peacocks £1

That is the end of my very first haul blog post ! I'm sorry if it was long and give your self a pat on the back if you made it to the very end thank you lot's for reading.

A little about me and why I started up my blog :)

Now most people reading this will probably think well she started a blog because she wanted to write down her thoughts,Get into the world of blogging,get her opinions across,Review products talk about random things and generally just ramble ! All of these are of course contributing factors to why I started up my blog but there was one big reason I did.

You know when your just having one of those days ?... Well we have all been there and it isn't the most pleasant of things to go through we all know that don't we ? Well I had been feeling like that for about a month,Every bad thing just hit me like a gust of wind one after the other and I had had enough!

With me being the positive person I am I really despised feeling this way and for a long time I had watched my fave you tubers (Which a lot of them have blogs) and one day I just thought to myself why not start a blog ? I can talk for a very long time,I love getting my opinions across about things like different products and discussing them with other people,And I love reading and writing !

It just seemed like the perfect solution to get away from all the madness that was going on in my life and In no way am I suggesting I did this because I had no one to talk to I have Friends who I love dearly and a great family. At the end of the day who loves you more than them ?!.

Well there we go that is finally off my chest and I feel so much better for it. I hope anyone reading this that felt like I did always talk to someone never keep things to yourself and never just use distractions because they only keep you occupied for a limited amount of time.

I hope you all enjoyed this and I shall have a haul for you within the next week love you all

How to deal with Work (school and other) and still have fun !!

I know it has been a while since my last post and I apologize for that guys :)
It's been my first couple of weeks back at college and its been HECTIC !!

So to the point :) When I was at school I or other people I knew sometimes struggled balancing work with seeing friends,This doesn't just apply to people still in education but people out there in the big bad world working there butts and not finding anytime for themselves. I've got some tips I thought I'd share with you all because I want to make all of your lives as easy as I can ! :)

#1 Don't PANIC !!!
There is always enough time to get that assignment done and if you don't think you can get it done maybe talk to your teacher or boss and see if you can get an extension or just to tell them it may be late I'm sure they will understand and if they don't..... Well there being down right awkward HAHA !

#2 Friend Day
Assign at least one day a week to see your friends even if it is just for a few hours or at a lunch break or something. You can have a catch up,A gossip and tell them if your feeling pressured by work they might have some great tips for you up their sleeve.

#3 Go for a walk
If you go for a walk after your tea or even on a lunch break you can reflect on whats happening at work or school and try to think of a way to help you out, And being outside is sure better for you than being stuck inside,Unless there's a monsoon outside or something !

That is just a few things I wanted to share with you I sure hope they help you out.

Pound shop beauty finds !

Yes you did read it right your eyes are not deceiving you !
I have found many a great thing in the pound shop that is branded like Revlon,Rimmel and NYC.

Some people do not like to buy beauty products from the pound shops and I do understand them as they may think that they are fake or out of date, but Nothing I have ever purchased from there has ever preformed any differently from the ones you can buy at Boots and Superdrug, They have never smelt funny or given me any rashes or anything ! The only effect they had was on my purse, It had more money in it !! hehe :)

Here are a few bits I have picked up from the pound shop in town.

From left to right: Rimmel London volume flash mascara,Rimmel Wake Me Up Instant Radiance shimmer touch (like a creme blush with highlight),Rimmel London stay glossy lip-gloss, Rimmel London Kate Moss lasting Finish lipstick,Calvin Klein tempting glitter sheer creme eyeshadow,NYC Glossy Lip Balm and NYC Waterproof eyeliner pencil.

So what are you waiting for ?! All of these products are mostly £5 or more in Superdrug or Boots,You could get 5 things for the price of what you would have paid for one. Or save the money towards a more expensive product that you have had your beady eye on.

That's all for now I hope you enjoyed this let me know if you have ever found anything in your local poundshop.

Don't forget to comment and I love to be followed on Bloglovin too !

Love you all over and out Sarah ! xx

My September Goals !

Now I saw this post on the lovely Lolli K's blog and seen as she mentioned that she'd love to hear what other peoples September goals are I thought I would write a post for you guys and I wanted to do a more talky post (If you get me ! haha ) seen as my Staying positive post had a great response go check it out if you like !

Now sorry for my ramblings ! onto my goals :)

#1 Push myself a little more

Now I didn't used to be the most confident of people but when I started my first year at college last year it brought me out of my shell A LOT !. However I feel I could push myself a bit more to put myself forward for positions like student representative and stuff like that :)

#2 Feel more confident in my college work

As I am a painting and Decorating student at college we do a lot of practical work and sometimes I just stand back,look at my work and think it's rubbish but other people say otherwise,Although I do feel a lot more confident in my work now as I used to I just want to make sure I maintain that feeling really.

#3 Change my nail colour more often

I have a lot of nail polishes that I have accumulated and once I find a shade I'm really fond of I tend to wear it frequently,I want to get out of this habit so that I can use them all up and then.... Well it gives me an excuse to buy more and I absolutely LOVE buying new polishes !

#4 Experiment with my hair more

Mostly my hair is either up in a high pony tail with hair wrapped around the hair band and held in place with a bobby pin and a light spritz of hairspray, Or down with a lil kept back with a bow clip or bobby pins. I hardly ever use heat on my hair but I do want to try out salt spray just to give my hair that little bit more oumph ! and texture. If you guys have any suggestions don't forget to leave them below.

Well I think that's all I have for my September goals please feel free to comment below what you think and if you have any suggestions ! :)

Being Positive :)

Now this post is slightly different from my normal posts but I have wanted to write this for a while.
I like to think of myself as a positive bubbly person so I'd like to share with you a few ways I keep upbeat and happy :)

#1 Don't listen to anyone that has anything bad to say about you

At the end of the day most people that do say hurtful things to people are either
-going or have been through a tough time themselves (although this is NO excuse to pot others down).
-Don't have anything else better to do.
-Or don't get attention any other way apart from when you may react to something they say to you.

So don't worry it is never worth taking to heart the hurtful things they say to you (Of course if they are giving you some constructive criticism it's a different matter) Of course if things get bad and you find you cannot cope talk to a teacher,friend or family member because that's what they're there for and bullies should NOT BE TOLERATED !

#2 Take A bath

Now this all sounds very typical of a girl but it is true. If you have had just one of those days where you want to forget about everything or just think things over the bath is the perfect place to do it !
Chuck in a bath bomb (I've heard great things about lush ones)
put on some music to your taste maybe put on a face mask or go the whole hog and put some candles out too ! sit back and let everything that happened that day fade away.

#3 Treat yourself

If there has always been one Lipstick you have been wanting desperately for months or an Xbox game or A top,Pair of shoes anything maybe now is the ideal time to treat your self if you have had a bad week its a great way to just pick yourself back up :P
Now some people may not have much money so maybe treat yourself to a movie day with your friends or go out to a park on a sunny day and lie in the sun (ALWAYS WEAR SUN-CREAM!!!)

#4 There is a positive side to all situations

What I'm trying to say here is that in almost every situation there is always something positive to look at. For example if you have had a really big falling out or argument with one of your closest friends there must have been a reason right ?
You can take a few days or even a day and think what might have caused this was there something about your friend that was bothering you ? like there attitude towards something or the way they spoke to one of your other friends ? After a day or two is the ideal time to talk things through with them as the dust will have settled they will respect you more as a person and more importantly as a friend for telling them this as they can do what they can to change and become a better person and more than likely in time you will become stronger friends than before.

So there are  a few ways I keep upbeat about everyday situations and life really.
Sorry if this post was long winded haha
