People Suck.. That's Just Life

Connecting with the people around us is something we all have to do whether we like it or not. Generally we surround ourselves with people that make us happy, however we will always come across and waste time on others that just aren't worth a single second. Now you all know that I use this blog to vent quite a bit, I turn my own life mistakes or life 'happenings' (if you'll call them that) into helpful tips and messages for you guys and I'm glad that so many of you love this. My whole life I've been too nice, if that makes sense. I've let people constantly walk over me, I've forgiven everyone even over something big or after the 50th time, and deep down I know I shouldn't. I know I'm basically giving them permission to hurt me in a way because I let them do it, I don't stop them. That's probably the biggest regret I've had in my life, I've always let people use me and I've never stood up for myself. I know it can be hard for some, especially if you're shy like I used to be, but I mean it when I say people like that aren't worth a second of your time and I really hope some of you will read this and make the change to not let other people treat you like crap.

We're All Just Puzzles

I'm sure most of you can say that you have things missing from your life. Whether it be a boyfriend, a job, hope (or if you're like me, all of the above.. ha) we all have that one missing piece that we just need to find to fit our puzzle. I know a fair few of my readers noticed that recently my blog has been MIA, non existent, offline. I had a few technical issues which resorted to my blog not being accessible to anyone, including myself and boy did I feel like something had been missing. I've always loved this blog but I never realised just how much of a big part of me it was until it was gone. I felt like I wasn't me, like there was a slot with nothing inside of it and nothing in my life made sense without it. Okay you may think I'm exaggerating slightly and maybe I am, but this little internet space takes up an awful big part of who I am and it made me think. We're all searching for something, or even someone to 'complete' us, if you want to put it that way that is, but why?

Zoeva Cocoa Blend Palette Review

Beauty reviews are still partially new to me, this blog may have started as a beauty blog but over the years it's transitioned into a handful of different topics, beauty of which has taken a major back seat. I want to change that though, I love makeup and I really want to start incorporating it into this blog more so I thought I'd review one of my new favourite palettes. I will apologise for the photo quality, without a proper camera the only thing I have to use is my phone and it doesn't take the most HD quality photo's out there but it'll do. Now I don't know about you but I originally heard about Zoeva for those gorgeous rose gold brushes that I'm sure we all lust over (which trust me I will own one day, just you watch!) but when I heard a fellow blogger raving about this palette I just had to jump on the bandwagon.

How To Increase Your Blog Page Views

I love my blog to pieces I really do, it started off as a hobby I never even considered I'd ever earn money from and although it still may be something I do out of pure passion, no blogger can deny that getting your blog seen and noticed is one of the best feelings ever. I often get asked "how do you get people to read your blog?" and before I start with this post I just want to say that it isn't easy by any means. Not only do you need the passion and commitment but you also need to put in a LOT of hard work and effort. If you're reading this and can hands down say that you can check them all off then keep reading for a few tips on growing your own little internet space, but make sure you're doing it for the right reasons. It's super easy to pick out people who are just doing it to get popular or for the 'fame' that comes with it, so before you start thinking about increasing your views make sure your blog is something you're proud of! If you deserve it the views will come eventually and knowing you've put your all into it makes the feeling even more rewarding.
