I don’t know about you, but sometimes I watch Halloween tutorials and I think ‘How the bloomin’ eck am I going to recreate that’?! They look AMAZING, but sometimes you need a million products, and spend loads of money, and it still never looks the same. I’d love to be that talented, but sadly for me, I have to stick to something a bit easier.
So I wanted to do a look that was super simple to recreate and didn’t cost loads of money. The look that I’ve done is the Natalie Portman from Black Swan look. You could just pair this with a black tank top and a cheap tutu and you’re sorted. Or if you’ve got a bit more money spare, you could get some cool creepy contacts to make this extra spooky.
Also, if you haven’t got any ideas for Halloween, I’ve got a discount code for you guys to use for Boo Hoo! The code is HALLOWEEN10 and you get 10% off anything in the Halloween category. You can use it from now until 30th October. Woo! Happy costuming!
Hope you’re all well and had a good weekend? I wanted to share with you something fun I’m taking part in, and you can too! SACO (The Serviced Apartment Company are holding a beauty blogger competition where you can win £150 of vouchers (yes please!). There’s nothing to pay to enter or anything, all you need to do is create two looks (day and night) with only 5 products and put it up on your blog! The main idea is to imagine that you’re going away for the weekend, and can only take limited products. So for my entry, I’ve done a little YouTube video for my entry, or I’ve done a step by step tutorial below with photos too! There’s still time to enter if you want to, it closes on the 24th October. All the ts and cs are here – SACO Beauty Blogger Challenge leave me a comment below if you enter!

I started this blog as a way to channel all the things in my crammed head into a little place I could call my own. I wanted to start something new, I wanted to meet new people. I wanted to try and write about my passions and hopefully inspire others to do the same.
So on my 1st Blog Birthday, I thought I’d write a little post of my random thoughts. Strap in, it’s probably going to be a long one!
Little did I know that a year later I would consider blogging such a massive part of my life. I’ve met SO many amazing people on my journey, and some who I now consider best friends. They’re the first people I speak to in the morning, and also who I can always count on. They’re the ones who can sense when things aren’t going so well, and they’re the first people to message me. The type of support I’ve received from the blogging community is unparalleled. Never have I found a group of people who are so happy for eachother, who are so passionate about their creations that
Of course it hasn’t always been an upward journey. I’ve faced severe self doubt, uncertainty of if I was good enough (which still plagues me), people telling me that I’m not good enough, really intense personal criticism, but the good always outweighs the bad.
Looking back, I’m so proud of everything that I’ve done, even things that I never thought I’d be able to do. Of course some of the things I struggle with, are likely to never go away completely, but I’ve met others who suffer from the same problems, so I now have that strong support network helping me along the way. I’ve also learned that there are always going to be people who try and pull you down, but in the end, that’s their problem, not yours. If they are hateful enough to intentionally make you feel bad about yourself, then that’s their negative outlook that needs to change, not you.
Hope you’re all well? So, yesterday I uploaded a little video of my September Favourites as I thought it might be fun to do it in video form! I also did a first look at the Zoella Beauty products by Zoella that I got recently! I hope you like it! If you do, please do give it a cheeky like, and leave me a comment! Oh, also if you’re not subscribed, why not make my day and sign up to see some more of my videos!
Yesterday a couple of exciting things happened, so wanted to tell you all about them! Firstly I had the chance to be on the radio which was pretty cool! I was on the Unlyshed Show with Alysha Wood talking all about Beauty And Beta and beauty tips, as well as talking about Healthy Selves and wellness, which was so great. It’s up on the site now, so if you missed it and would like to listen, you can click on the podcast below. I’m on from about 1hr 12, but it was a great show, so I’d definitely recommend listening to the whole thing if you get a chance!
or if that doesn’t work above, then you can download it here – CLICK Thanks so much to Croydon Radio and to Alysha for having me on.
Also yesterday was exciting because it was the launch of the Blogging Gals website, which is the brainchild of the gorgeous ZeenaXena
