So Long Crystal!

Hey everyone.

So after some time I have come to the decision that I can no longer continue this blog. Things came up over the past few months and I was very busy with little motivation to write posts. I became busy with a job, school and my social life. I lacked ideas and didn't want to just post crap up for the sake of it.

I have decided that I will set up a new blog which will be fashion based with outfit ideas but I would also like to be able to write some posts based on some outlooks I have on life and other topics. I feel more inspired to put looks together and feel it's something that will be easier to commit to.

Thank you to all those who took the time to read my blog, to follow and leave comments. I really do appreciate it and hopefully this is not goodbye for good.
My aim would be to inspire you to create your own outfits and maybe use the items you do have in a different way. I want to show you how I want to dress and have a good collection of ideas.

I would love if you left a link to your blog in the comments so I can refollow blogs and perhaps find some new ones!

Feel free to follow my Instagram (still new so not many posts), my Pinterest and Tumblr if you're interested.

I will not be deleting this blog so posts will still be available to read.

Hope to see you soon!

Eternal Beauty

Hey Beauties
So I was scrolling through the many blogs I read and I saw this quote at the top of  raspberrycheek's blog. I thought it was so beautiful and so true that I had to share it with you all.
So many people get judged on their appearance but in years to come when you're old and whatnot, you'll want someone who has beauty on the inside, not the outside. Looks are just a bonus.
Appreciate the beautiful people in your life because these days, real beauty is hard to find.

Disney Craze: Frozen

Hey Beauties!
So as you all know, the new Disney craze is Frozen and I have to say, I totally agree with where they're coming from.
I've only seen it once however I am OBSESSED with the soundtrack. It's cute and catchy and it's a real family feel good movie.
I love Disney movies so obviously I was going to see their new instalment. I didn't think I would be this hooked though!
There are quite a few good messages in this movie and, SPOILER ALERT, it's based on sisterly love rather than the typical Disney romance. Obviously there is romance but it's not the overriding message which I think is important.
As well as that they have finally made it clear in Disney movies that you can't marry someone you've just met.
About time!
Overall I love this movie, especially the characters. Some of the lines are almost heartbreaking they're just that adorable and I think it's fair to say that everyone will love Olaf.
If you haven't seen Frozen you need to! If you don't like it that's fine but I highly recommend it!

The Consequences of Incorrect Storage!

Hey Beauties!

So the other night just before I was going to bed, I opened up my cupboard beneath my sink. My make up bag (which was not stored correctly) jolted forward tipping out one or two of my make up items, one of them being my Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation.
As my floor was tiled and the bottle is glass you can kind of guess what happened next. Yep, it smashed.

My first reaction was of course disbelief. I was hoping that it wasn't really smashed but upon closer inspection it was clear I could no longer use it.

I'm annoyed because I was starting to really get into wearing it and I hadn't owned it for that long either. I bought it on sale as it's usually about $20 and I don't want to spend that much on a drugstore foundation so the fact that it may not be on sale any longer had me a bit worried and annoyed.

When I say it broke, it really broke. I thought it was just the bottom that smashed but there was also cracks up and around all sides. I can even pull the bottom off! I mean I could be stupid and still use it but there's probably tiny pieces of glass in it and I don't want to put glass on my face!

I think the main lesson to be learned from this is store your make up correctly. Don't have it hanging out of a bag or near a surface which it could smash upon. Unfortunately a lot of foundations are glass so avoiding glass bottles is difficult but just BE CAREFUL!
