When I was younger, I always wanted to be an actress. I loved performing for my family, whether that was putting on shows with my cousin in our matching crop tops, or just making people laugh with my celebrity impressions. The feeling of making someone else happy, of making someone else feel, full stop, was an amazing feeling.
It’s been almost six years since I started taking the contraceptive pill, Microgynon. Up until the last year or so, I never really questioned it. Taking a pill every day that alters my hormones and changes the way my body functions. I was 17 when I first started taking it, and now, 22-years-old, I’ve decided to stop.
At least, for a while, anyway.
I’m writing this post in bed with a head cold, a slight sense of guilt lingering over me as I told myself not to open my laptop and just go to bed and rest. But being the technology addict I am, laptop was switched with phone.
Having had my phone replaced the other day, I restored everything from my last back up, to see all my old photos had found their way back onto my phone. Scrolling through random pictures from last summer, I came across the photo above.
My quest for a drugstore eye primer is ongoing. Not that I’ve actually tried that many, but it’s hard to find something that works that doesn’t break the bank. For a few months now I’ve been using Maybelline’s Color Tattoo in Creme de Nude as a base for my eyeshadow and liquid/gel liner. I wanted to see if this would work as a primer to prevent creasing and to stop my eyeliner transferring to my brow bone.
I often take for granted the fact I can speak another language. Although I went to uni to study French, the ability to speak a language besides English is just normal to me. From the age of about 3, I’ve learnt French. I’m so glad that I have this skill, not because I use it everyday. In fact, at the moment I don’t get to use it nearly as much as I’d like to.
I don’t know about you, but I cannot get motivated at the gym without some music. Usually I start my work out off on the treadmill, which is great for getting the blood pumping, but seriously repetitive and a bit dull. When I’ve got some good music on however, I can run for miles (or maybe like 5km).
I thought I’d share my top 10 tracks for any work out to give you a little bit of motivation to get down to the gym or go for a run or whatever.
