Okay I know this post is being uploaded a tad late but i've been so busy lately so I apologise! I have so much going on right now it's kinda crazy, but don't worry I'll still be regularly posting on here, you all have nothing to worry about! Lately I've been both the happiest i've ever been but also the saddest i've ever been, which is hands down one of THE most confusing thing's ever and makes 0 sense, but I'm just trying to roll with it. If you read my June goals post (which you can find HERE) you'll be happy to hear that I have completed 3 of the 4 goals!! I hit 1,000 bloglovin followers a few days after the end of the month, so thank you all so so much for that, it means an awful lot and i'm so happy with where this blog is heading at the moment! I've kept up the regular posting and I've also organised my bookshelf, so my productivity levels are feeling greaaatttt right now.

Our generation are social media addicts. As soon as we wake up the first thing we do is check twitter or Instagram or even facebook. We get labelled unsociable and social media is portrayed as this big bad wolf that has a massive hold on us, but is that really the truth? We get told we're wasting our time and to get off our phones, but is it really that bad for us? I ran a poll on twitter asking what peoples thoughts were, and got a ton of DM's with everyone's opinions on the topic and to be quite frank it was rather interesting. Every single person had something different to say about it, but the majority agreed that our social media addict generation has both it's ups and downs.

Even I get bored of my blog every now and then, sometimes a change is majorly needed even if it is just a slight revamp. Sometimes you want to go all out and completely refresh everything, but if that isn't that case I thought I'd share 4 tips to just revamp and spruce up your blog. Think of it as a little spring clean if you want, I can guarantee you'll feel a lot better after doing some of these. Also don't ask me why I didn't do 5, I know that probably would have made more sense but hey ho I'm a fan of even numbers, even the volume has to be even around me. (Yes I'm one of THOSE people)

Why I haven't done more reviews lately I honestly have no clue, I guess the whole idea of writing them is quite daunting to me because I'm not quite sure how. All these lifestyle posts are good and easy because it just comes naturally to me, however no matter how much I love makeup and books I always find writing reviews so much more difficult! Today I thought I'd mix all the deep posts up with a review (got to practise somehow, right) of my most recent foundation purchase. I've used 2 Giorgio Armani foundations before, this being the second one I've tried. It may be a high end product and far from cheap, but boy is it worth the money. I first got this foundation after trying the 'Luminous Silk' one (eventually I will review that too), I was reluctant to spend the money at first considering I'm more on the poorer side of life, and the last thing I want to do is spend excessive amounts of money on a foundation I don't even like! However after taking the plunge I did not regret it one bit, in fact investing in Giorgio Armani foundations is probably the best risk I've ever taken.

Sitting down the other day I realised that at times I can be a very closed book. There's so much stuff that makes up the core of my personality that pretty much no one knows about and honestly I have no clue why. Now I like to think I have a strong friendship with both my readers and fellow bloggers, so I don't think it's quite fair that you all don't know much about me when you're all so open on twitter to me. Being a blogger you don't tend to talk about yourself very much, it's mostly reviews or your thoughts or what you're up to that people are interested in. I often feel like people don't care about me as a person but lately I've realised just how untrue that really is. My readership has been growing quite a lot lately and I feel like I have a connection with every single one of you, so it's only right that I share with you a bunch of things I tend to keep hidden and that no one knows, after all no one likes a robot.

We all get sad sometimes, it's human nature, so why do we shame sadness? Being down sucks, it really does and when our mood is in the dumps we tend to keep it to ourselves due to the fear of what others will say. "Just get over it?", "don't be so silly!", "man the hell up". Those are all very common comments I get when I'm sad and I tell someone about it, I'm sure quite a few of you have heard similar reactions and I'm sorry but why? What's wrong with being sad every now and then? There's nothing wrong with it but don't let it take over your life, use your misery to your advantage. Okay I bet most of you are wondering what the hell I'm rambling on about, but let me explain.
