My Go To Uni Look ♡

Hey Guys,

I never have enough time in the morning to properly get ready for uni, it's just never going to happen. The first week is bliss, I get up on time, do my face how I want, wear my best clothes, but once that week is over, I'm back to my true self, concealer based makeup, half - alright clothes and I'm out the door. So today, I thought I would share my go to look, something I can compile within 15 minutes. Clinique kindly sent a few products out for me to test which I've been grabbing from day to day so I'll also be sharing my thoughts on them!

My 1st Empties ♡

Hey guys, 

Apologies for the lack of posts last week, I started uni again after a mammoth 6 months off and I just needed to settle into my timetable. Plus, I've been in a blogging stump, ie had major writers block, bloggers will know this feeling. Its just where, you have no motivation to write a post and even if you push yourself your not happy with it, your basically in a major slump. I was in one for a god few weeks, luckily I had a few posts written to publish but last week, nothing was scheduled and I thought nope, I'm not putting something up that I'm not happy with. I just had to ride the feeling out but the other day, I got a major urge to write and I knew that feeling had finally faded. Onto the actual post lol. I've never done an empties mainly because I always forget to keep the packaging for a post, instead I just bin the thing. But but, for the past few months (it takes me ages to finish a product) I have been placing the products in a very handy box, so let's just delve right in shall we.

Amazon Bargains ♡

Hey Guys,

So I was looking around my room and was thinking about products and where I had got them from and most were purchased from Amazon and I went holy goodness, I brought all of these from Amazon and most of them didn't even cost more than £5. Of course being a blogger, I went and made a post out of it ...

How sad is it, we've finished Sept and only have 3 more months left of the year. It truly has flown by, I remember when it was January thinking, this will be the year that doesn't fly by. Well it sure bloody did! I haven't written a Favourites post is ages so it was struggle trying to find what I've been loving but I've hunted down a small handful of products.

I'M BACK & Where I've Been ♡

Hey Guys,

Well doesn't this feel weird. It takes me back. 

If you all read my Life Update post (LINKED) and the intro of my May Favorites post, you probably would have got the gist. I didn't think this would be so hard to write but I've got a little hot flush! I feel a bit nervous actually. In case you aren't aware, my mum was diagnosed with Bowel Cancer, December last year (I spoke all about it in the linked posts). A few months back, I think it was early June, my mum had a chemotherapy consultation, which we both attended and this is where they explain everything about chemo. My mum was so emotional, she really didn't want to go through chemo, she knew what it entailed and the Doctor, kept pushing and I did too because it was the only point of survival in a sense, even though I knew she physically and mentally wasn't ready. But, we said, 'oh, once you have the first one, it'll get easier. Oh, we'll all be here for you', it carried on. Then my mums oncologist and Macmillan Nurse joined us and said, Shila, you aren't ready for Chemo, we're going to get you stronger and healthier before we even get an ounce of it in you. The oncologist, then sent my mum down to A&E, where we waited to get admitted into the ward.
