Taking a step out

I've never mentioned this on my blog until now, I suffer from anxiety. It's a horrible thing to suffer from, especially when people just see you as 'happy' and 'bubbly'. However, there are a few small things I try to do each day to help myself and try to overcome this anxiety, I thought I would share these on my blog incase it could help others.

1. Leave the house at least once a day. This may sound silly but in the past there were weeks, even MONTHS when I didn't leave the house but now I motivate myself, whether it be for lectures, meeting up with a friend or work. Just leaving the house, seeing the outside world once a day has really helped.

2. Join a society. This is more for if you're at university. Joining a society may seem like a terrifying idea however, meeting new people who share the same interests and passion as you really helps. I joined the anime, comics and gaming society at my university and I have met so many lovely people, and made some wonderful new friends. Also, you don't have to do this alone, I joined the society with friends.

3. Do something once a day that's out of your comfort zone. This sounds a bit overboard however my comfort zone is VERY small! By this I mean calling people, going to a friends house. More recently, I have tried to help at least one stranger a day and the kindness of people really helps to settle my nerves.

4. Talk to someone. If i'm ever feeling anxious or down I now ALWAYS talk to someone, I used to bottle everything up and make myself feel a hundred times worse, talking to someone is incredibly important.

These are a few of the things I try to do each day. Anxiety is awful but if you try making your own goals like this, it too could help you.

Bye for now!

Eye Shadow Palette's

Cashmere Eye Shadows - £6 Next
Barry M Super Shadow & Primer Palette - £6.49 Superdrug

I've been really eye shadow crazy at the moment, I love mixing and blending colours together to make unique styles especially during the festive season with all the Christmas parties! 

I'm super happy I found this eye shadow palette in Next, it's the same colours as one of the Urban Decay range but so much more cheaper! The eye shadows last all day without needing to be refreshed and the colours are wonderfully pigmented.

The Barry M eye shadow palette comes with a primer however, this primer is disappointing. It crumbles and leaves the eyeshadow to look tacky. On their own, the eyeshadows are beautiful, there's a lovely range of colours including a sparkly golden shade perfect for party season. High street eye shadow palette's are definitely getting better and I am becoming more impressed with them each time a try a new one.

What are your favourite high street eye shadows? 

Thanks for reading!

Bye for now. :)

Been away a while.


As you've probably noticed I've been away from blogging for quite a while. I had to take a break as I just had a huge amount of university work, filming, editing, pitching, building sets, travelling! Also, at the weekends i've been busy at work, I decided to take a break until I was able to get my work into flow and work out how to balance university work, a job, a social life and my blog! I've finally made a plan therefore... i'm back! 

Where have I been? 

Follow me on Instagram ! I post pretty much everyday of what I'm up to / where I am. Take a look at my Twitter too.

In November I had the opportunity to go to Amsterdam for the IDFA (International Documentary Film festival Amsterdam) the documentaries I watched were incredible and Amsterdam itself was a beautiful place.

Just a few snippets from Amsterdam! Let me know if you'd like a full post on the trip!

So that's it really, sorry for being away for so long but now I shall be back to blogging every week (hopefully more than once a week)

Bye for now!
