Monday Musings

Hello my loves, literally just wanted to share these three thoughts with you. I won't elaborate on them, I think they speak for themselves. Hope everyone is good, and if you're not, I pray it gets better for you

Monday Musings: How Ugly Are You?

Ok this is going to be brief because what I'm about to put below is all I want you take out of this post...no "laadeedaa this is what I bought today/ this is what I wore" ...No. Please girls/boys/men/women/EVERYONE remember this always <3 


(AND THE SAME GOES FOR MEN!!!)

- Don't diminish your worth based on what you think society wants/likes 
- Stop focussing on your "flaws" 
- Stop comparing yourself to other people 
- Love yourself 
- Respect yourself
- Know yourself; don't try and be who you think everyone wants you to be, you are the way you are for a reason. Embrace it. 


Darling, you are enough, and don't let anyone tell you or make you feel otherwise. 
          
                                                     YOU. ARE. ENOUGH.

Mini Beauty Haul: GOSH Lumi Drops, Growth Mascara, Rapid Lash

Hello lovelies!! Hope everyone has had a blessed week and is ready for Monday...This time last week I was on a flight heading to LA and now I'm back in rainy England, the time went so quickly it's unreal...there will be a post about LA and Coachella coming very soon :-) But for now here's a quick post about the new products I'm really excited about, they'll be product updates coming soon.




 Sooooo..... Product No.1: GOSH LUMI DROPS- Illuminating highlighter- £7.99 





Initial thoughts: Love it! I don't usually use highlighters or any sort of illuminating product, mostly due to laziness but also because I don't know much about application and what products would be good for my complexion so I was sceptical about buying this. As soon as I did a swatch however, it was love at first...well first swatch I guess.



 No.2: GOSH GROWTH MASCARA- Promotes longer lashes in 2 weeks (apparently) £9.99 Initial thoughts: Not too keen on the brush, struggled slightly to coat my lashes using it but overall, decent mascara, just waiting to see if it actually lengthens my lashes after two weeks, I'll keep you posted 







 No: 3 RAPID LASH EYELASH ENHANCING SERUM- £- Can't remember, I think £17.99 from Amazon Initial thoughts: Wish it was a mascara wand instead of a thin brush applicator but considering it needs to be applied to the base of the lashes it makes sense. Like the previous product, just got to wait a few weeks to see results (30 days) ...will deffo do a progress post on this

Food For Thought Fridays (FFTF): Nicole Scherzinger

Waddup homies?
Sup?
What's occurring?
I don't know why I said that but yeh, hope you've had a good week and will have a lovely weekend.

Anyways, I've decided to add a, what do you call these things? A feature? A series? I'm being serious by the way, I'm not trying to be funny or anything...I'm going to call it a series, although that's probably wrong but whatever, I've decided to do a series called Food For Thought Fridays which is pretty much what it says on the tin. In a nutshell, I'll be posting about anything that I find interesting, anything you may find interesting/useful..basically what I've been trying to do anyway but every Friday. Yes. You read correctly. EVERY FRIDAY! Which hopefully will make my blogging more consistent as opposed to one blogpost every 5 months.

So yes, unnecessary introduction over, welcome my first FFTF post:



I don't know by but I randomly reignited my obsession with this song, and after listening to the Madonna version on repeat, came across this one. All I can say is, I cried. A lot. hope you liked it.

F**k It!

Ok, so this is a slightly out of the blue post, I had no intention of blogging today, woke up after a rubbish night's sleep and just wanted to do nothing today. But my mind has been racing non stop and something tipped me off the edge so I started jotting down some thoughts on my phone like I usually do but then thought, you know what, get the lappy out, so I picked up my crappy laptop and here I am. 

I don't know how long or short this post will be, I'm not that fussed, I may delete it after a bit, but for now here it goes.

I was on Instagram like a second ago and I came across this image:


My first response was....well, I didn't get it at first. I didn't get it at second, third, or fourth either. I knew it was supposed to be a joke of some sort because the comments consisted mainly of "lol"s or the cry laughing emoji but I didn't get it at all. It took me a good 5 minutes or so to try and understand what the "joke" was, and I still didn't get it, I had to read the comments to understand wtf this was supposed to mean. And then the penny dropped, actually that's a lie, it still hadn't, someone had tagged the actual woman in this post so I checked her Instagram (as any "normal" person would) and realised that the joke was pretty much this: How can someone with such a hot body be so ugly? .....

You frickin kidding me???

What kinda screwed up society are we living in where we feel that this sort of behaviour is acceptable? I'm actually asking, this isn't rhetorical. Because I really don't know any more. The sheer hypocrisy of some people is just ridiculous nowadays, everyone is harping on about how we should love ourselves, and we should be nice and kind to each other yet, here we are in the year 2016 making fun of people we don't know. BECAUSE OF HOW THEY LOOK. It's bad enough the media tries to remind us daily that we're not good enough through the constant bombardment of images of the manufactured "ideal female (or male)" and it's blatant elimination of those that don't fit it's idea of "perfect" ...you know what, I'm not even going to get into that right now, I'll save that for another post because that's a whole other issue I've got with society. I'll stick with this for now. 


I read the comment that this lady wrote after seeing this photo of herself and felt an overwhelming sense of sadness, because she was hurt by this. How can people be so cruel? Look, I'm not sitting here on my high Unicorn (I know its' high horse but if I'm going to sit on anything it will be a Unicorn) and act like I don't find things funny, or that I haven't laughed at inappropriate jokes before, I wasn't even going to post anything to be honest, I was just gonna take a nap and try and make myself dream about food or whatever but I just thought f**k it.  I don't want to be that person who just sits and watches the world go by. I made this blog because:
 A) I talk a lot anyway so this was a perfect outlet 
AND:
 B) Because I wanted to make people happy somehow, I wanted something I wrote to brighten up someone's day, or help them believe in themselves

 It's a shame that the same people that are screaming from the rooftops for empowerment and solidarity are the same ones making fun of someone they don't even know. But it's ok, it's just Instagram, she won't care...will she? 

You're wondering why I titled this post f**k it right? Well because that's my attitude on life now, f**k it. You can't please everyone, not everyone will like you, not everyone will think you're beautiful, not everyone will think you're funny, intelligent, amazing bla bla bla. The most important thing is that you realise that about yourself, love yourself, be nice to as many people as possible and don't waste your life trying to be what you think society wants you to be, or what the media tells you to be, just be yourself. Be happy. Be kind. F**k it.
