The Happening Palette

You may or may not know that GCSEs start in under two weeks (oh god), and that is the reason why I have not been posting too much. However when I finish my GCSEs on the 14th of June, probably the longest summer I will ever have begins. I'm not 100% sure what I'm doing over the summer but I will be blogging about it all (and possibly vlogging). So stay tuned! 

Today I thought I'd do just a quick post on one of my most recent purchases from Nars - The Happening Palette! 

The blush of the left is coralie and quite subtle, which I really like as I don't like blush to be too strong and harsh, particularly on myself. 

The bronzer on the right is really nice for a natural little bit of colour. However, personally I prefer the Mac bronzer that has a little bit of glitter in it.

The light eye shadow on the top left is nice to cover the whole eye right up to the brow bone to wear with just liquid eyeliner, or on the inside corner for a smokey eye.

The purple eye shadow on the bottom left is nice for a fairly light smokey eye or lightly over the whole eye up to the crease for a lazy make up day.

The light brown on the top right is also good for the whole eye up to the crease on a lazy make up day.

Finally the dark brown on the bottom right is good for under the eye with a subtle smokey eye as it is less harsh than black. 

Just a quick little review, not the best.

Short Post

Sorry I haven't been posting as often as I would like, I hope you're not missing me too much (lol). Just wanted to share this video with you (that other girl in my music class shared with me) that made me smile -

Sorry I couldn't find it on YouTube.

Heather Horris is pregnant!

Hola! (Warning: short post similar to the one about Millie and Professor Green)

Now, for those of you who don't know Heather Morris, Brittany from Glee, is pregnant! The father of her child is her boyfriend Taylor Hubbell. E News posted a short article regarding the matter saying that they're both extremely happy and excited. And so am I for both of them.

However, what is she going to do about Glee? Michael Buckley (from What the Buck on YouTube) said in one of his most recent videos that he'd love them to write it into the story and make Santana the baby daddy (or mummy?). Interesting idea... Let's see what happens.

Easter Update

Hola mis amigos de internet!

Just a quick update...

So, I am extremely stressed and overwhelmed with the amount of work I have to do this holiday. I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing, and although I'm sure my summer holidays will be lovely I don't have the same excitement that many of my friends do in looking forward to it. Which is not helping my lack of motivation. I must say that for the Easter holidays I am very unhappy bunny. I am trying to occupy and surround myself with positive things and people, though if I'm honest I am feeling fairly alone. Which is not the best thing to feel. I am in no position to be giving advice on staying calm with work and other things as I myself have no idea how to deal with it. However, Sun Beams Jess did do a blog post about dealing with stress that I think is quite good. Just remember to appreciate the simple pleasures in life. I know that sometimes it's difficult to notice them but it's ok. Everything is going to be just fine. I realise I do sound fairly ridiculous, but writing this post is fairly therapeutic.

Another little thing that often cheers me up is Louise, Sprinkle of Glitter,'s Motivational Mondays -

Ok, now enough of the sad stuff. In other news I'm thinking of doing vlogs over the summer but my brother said he doesn't think it's a good idea to expose how odd myself and my family are. So we'll see. Enough text, now for some pictures -
