Loneliness

Loneliness can come in a ton of different ways and I just want to start off by clarifying that I think there's a big difference between being alone and loneliness, as human beings we need time to be alone, it's good for our mental health, however when that turns into feeling actually alone and isolated that it becomes a problem. One thing that my readers seem to love is when i'm open, when I write about how I feel because a lot of you seem to relate and that seems to be what's growing my blog. It's hard for me to be open because i'm quite a closed person, I don't like letting things out in the open especially to people I know, which is why using this blog as a form of escape has become a regular thing, and the fact you guys love it just makes it all the better. 

Now i've always liked being on my own, like most bloggers and internet people I'm an introvert. Until recently I found it extremely impossible to be social, especially for long periods of time but now I can manage it, to a certain extent that is. I've come a long way from the person I used to be a few months ago, but in becoming more social the loneliness has somehow creeped in unnoticed.

Small Goals For July

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.

The Power Of Social Media

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.

4 Tips To Revamp Your Blog

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)

Giorgio Armani Designer Lift Foundation Review & Comparison

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.

Can You Keep A Secret?

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.
