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.

Now I think it's only human nature to be scared of rejection. To be afraid of being turned down or to fail. I understand that I completely do, I mean I've lived my entire life just like this and boy is it hard to get over (especially recently, but I won't touch on that here, click THIS link to subscribe to my new weekly newsletter where I'll go into depth on my personal fear of rejection in an email towards the end of next week!) I'm going to be blunt. Not everyone is going to like you. You could be the loveliest person to ever exist and a select few will still find something to pick at or a reason to hate you, no matter how lame or petty it is. That's just life, and it says a lot more about them than it does you. To start getting over your fear of rejection that's the first thing you have to accept. Accepted it yet? Good, soon you'll no longer care because let's be real, it's not worth it. It's a part of life. Nothing will change that no matter how hard you try.

A girl’s prom is one of her most special and memorable occasions. She wants everything to go just right and having the perfect dress is a big part of that. With the amount of ‘risky’ prom dresses online these days however, it can be a tricky choice to choose between dressing to get heads turning or dressing to get people talking. Picking a dress that is a bit too alluring can have a negative effect, it’s good to know that you can still stand out and look the part but without having to go down the tacky road. As prom dresses that have designed to be sexy often feature cut-outs, slits and more that show excessive amounts of skin, you’ll want to stay clear of these. It’s true that buying a white prom dress may seem a bit wedding like, but white prom dresses are in fact one of the most princess-like gowns you can buy. There are stores in Chicago that sell a wide range of heavenly white prom dresses that will surely make you look like a princess. The color has several positive connotations for dresses and can help you achieve the look you are going for.
