University Is Over!


Hello my loves, this is it, the final university post I will ever make. Who know if I will ever go back into education or not, but for now, it's over. The life I have known since the age of three has come to an end. No more gcses, alevels, ucas, uni, student finance or dissertation. It is all finito!

And what a journey it has been. I mean it's been tough at times but I honestly believe I chose the right course and he right uni. I've had an amazing three years full of exciting new experiences and I can't wait to see what the next chapter of my life holds.

I mean, I am terrified. Job prospects are nowhere in sight, the UK is in recession, friends who have graduated a couple years back are still struggling to find a job, but I believe when the time is right for me I will find a job I love and will be successful. (I sure can't wait until then) 

Hey ho, here's some advice I have for anyone going into uni or going into the second of third year. MAKE EVERY MOMENT COUNT. You think three years is a long time, it really isn't. Make sure you study hard, don't try to just pass for the sake of it. With increased tuition fees you should show the government, your family and most importantly yourself that this is worth it, and that you can do it. Make loads of new friends. Try and talk to everyone, go to parties, socialise. Just because you're studying doesn't mean you can't have a good time doing so! So as the cliche goes 'work hard but play harder'.

Finally my loves, just enjoy every moment. Now that my education has come to an end I keep reminiscing about school and how I spent my days worrying about the future and what I wanted to be. You will never be 100% sure so enjoy school, enjoy college or uni, and whatever career you will end up with will happen anyway.

If you have decided not to go into uni and have found a career doing something skilled, apprenticeships and trade work I respect you guys so much!

Here's hoping that one day this unemployed journalist gets to write for one of her dream magazines! Fashion and beauty of course.

Darlings, I hope this post can give you a little guidance and support, don't be afraid to ask for any advice from myself, your friends and family or a member of staff at uni, college or school.

Lots of Love

REVIEW: Jelly Pong Pong Fairy Lashes Mascara


In Mays Glossybox, I received a full sized Jelly Pong Pong mascara. You can't imagine my excitement when I opened my box. I've heard a lot about Jelly Pong Pong and in a previous Glossybox I have used and loved their lip tinted moisturiser. So I was excited to try this out. The box itself says that this mascara is "not for the faint hearted" and that it "makes eye lashes flutter, thicker & curvier." And it truly does. 


At a first glance:
I was unsure about this product, the packaging doesn't look luxurious like high end products.  The box is cute in a pale blue with white and pink flowers, however the mascara itself looks quite childlike, the wand looks like it won't really work and i was hesitant to try it. It reminded me of something I would have liked around ten years ago. As the saying goes, never judge a book by its cover.


Because it really is a great product. My eyelashes feel so long, I can feel them on my brow bone which I absolutely love. You can reapply the product without it getting clumpy and it has a real good black colour. It also doesn't smudge  throughout the day. 



All in all I am very pleased with this product despite the child like packaging. This product is £15 and can be bought from here.

How To: Make Shoes More Comfortable



As you should know I have been working in Russell and Bromley for nearly five years now. It's only part time but over the holidays I do overtime and it has literally helped me be the person I am and more importantly has helped me have an amazing shoe wardrobe.

So with the skills I have aquired over the last five years I thought I'd write a post about how to make the most uncomfortable shoes feel like slippers.

Well it starts with purchasing your shoes. Whether they be a pair of flats, heels or trainers make sure they fit properly. If the shoe is too small or too big it will end up ripping your feet apart. If they're too tight you risk remoulding the shape of your feet and if they're too big they end up slipping off and causing unruly blisters!

Heres my top ten tips.

1-Make sure that your shoes are leather lined. You can find inexpensive leather shoes on the high street. Shoes with leather lining means that the shoe will mould to the shape of your foot, making them extra comfortable.

2-With any soft leather flat shoe such as driving shoes/ loafers make sure that your toes reach the end as you do not want the front chaffing upwards. Nobody wants aladin shoes.

3-Now with harder leathers bearing in mind loafers, brouges or any other sort of flat leathered shoe make sure that there is a little room in the shoes. Beware of any toes being squashed. Although leather does stretch you do not want the shoe to completely change shape.

4-Suede shoes will stretch no matter what. They are the softest type of leather and if you buy suede shoes larger than you need them to be you will never be able to walk in them. Make sure they are a little tight in the shop.

5-Patent leather is a lot trickier. It too will stretch however it does take a lot longer than suede and leather. Make sure you have enough room to wiggle your toes around a little.

6-Heels. Try them on with whatever you are planning on wearing them with. If you are a tights girl try them on with tights. If you enjoy baring your legs make sure you try them on with no pop socks. As the tights make the shoes seem a lot larger.

7-Boots. With my boots I always go for the same size, but I make sure there's a bit of space so I can always add extra socks of it does get really cold.

Now once you've bought them but they just don't feel comfortable.

8-First thing I would do is wear my new shoes in. By that I mean I chuck on some really thick socks and walk around the house in them helping the stretching process. Some people like to use leather stretcher but I have never seen any of these work. For best results there are shoe stretchers that you place in the shoe and you twist these to the desired amount and leave them for atleast 24 hours.

9-If the ball of your foot is hurting: why not purchase some gel cushions to go on the inside of your shoe. The added cushioning gives you comfort and gives a little bounce on the sole of your feet.

10-If you find you have a skinny ankle and shoes are constantly slippin off you should get some heel grips. This too is a gel cushioning which adds padding and stops the shoes from slipping and gaping.

I hope this helps you all and be sure to let me know if you have any tips you use to make your shoes comfortable. Let me know if you want more posts like this.

Lots of Love
