Basic foundation buys

Face Basics

While the best way to have amazing skin is to have an awesome skin care routine. It doesn’t hurt to have a little help that doesn’t break the bank.

The 3 things you need are foundation, concealer, and powder.

The most important thing to note when choosing these products is your skin tone. In order to get the perfect match, you should always test the product on your face, your wrist is not the same colour to your face. I don’t know why people forget this all the time. Your skin gets so much more sun then your face.The best way is to be in-store with the help of a beauty assistant.

Here are some brands that you can get pretty much anywhere.

Best of the Emmys 2016

Yes I know everyone has been discussing the who wore what of the Emmys but well I want to give you my two cents too. Also I’m doing this thing where I just blog about everything.

I love watching red carpet events I’m that person sitting on my couch judging and rating the best and worst dress while dressed like a bum. Some of my favourite moments or mentionable moments are the kids of “Stranger Things” handing out peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, Game of Throne, as if we didn’t realised they were pretty much going to win everything and Jimmy Kimmel’s had na hilarious opening monologue.

Okay but now to the serious stuff, my pick to the best dress. I’m going to go straight for my favourite person of course was Kristen Bell. It might be because I love her, it might be best she played Veronica Mars but it doesn’t matter she looked AMAZING!

Reaching out

I wanted to touch on a topic very dear to my heart. Depression. I want to start bey saying it’s more than just sadness. Any one who knows me knows that I’m bubbly and high energy however being a bubbly person doesn’t mean you don’t experience depression and anxiety. Mental health issues don’t discriminate, even for people who appear happy and cheery get depression.   I hate that this topic is taboo, we need to discuss mental health more. I hate that people say that “X” person died of suicide, no they die of depression. Depression is an illness, not a choice of lifestyle.  When people just tell you to be happy, you can’t, not when you have depression, it doesn’t work like that. If someone you know just died and I told you to be happy, could you? Probably not.

I’ve come along away from the person I used to be, however certain feelings they never leave and really my point here today isn’t to tell you to be happy, but rather to say there are people out there who support you. You are never alone. You may feel alone however there are so many people out there who are here for you. The other point is if you are lucky enough to not experience depression or anxiety please be there for someone else. Some times just the simple gesture of making small talk makes all the difference in someones day.

Everyone is different, there isn’t a basic 10 steps to not be depressed. I wish there was but there isn’t, it’s just something we need to work at.  Something that the first step is the hardest, the step to reach out and say something, to say I need help, but for some depression takes you voice away from you. The only real advice that I can say is seek help sooner rather than later, I feel like every day just guess harder and harder if you don’t.

My happy place

The long hold.

I’m the first to admit it, I’m terrible at keeping blogging promises. We all have many excuses and let me tell you mine. I’m gotten married, I’ve got a new job, I’ve gotten a promotion, I’ve brought a house, I’m helping my cousin plan their wedding, I’m helping an injured friend and I’m back at uni again. I know lots is going on. However I slowly getting on top of everything.

Changing job was the biggest factor in my lack their of writing. My new job means I can find the time to blog, but I guess earning more equates to more work.

This is a short update to say I will try harder. I really do miss it and I miss you.
