Midweek Motivation || Whats meant to be wont pass you by!

Hello There Everyone!!

Hands up now! Whos heard this saying before? I have, but I never really thought about it until recently. Anyone who knows me will know that I am not very religious but I am a big believer in the universe & energy. 

Lately I have been feeling a bit off balance & a bit out of whack to be honest. I was beginning to doubt my decision to pack up & move my life. My anxiety has been playing up a bit & I was close to running home again!

However after taking a breather I decided to look back at all the reasons I decided to come here in the first place, look at all the things I love about the place & remember the goals I had for being down here. Funny thing is when I thought back I remembered how random it was that the opportunity even came up, how everything had fallen into place at the time for this all to happen & I remembered this saying "Whats meant to be wont pass you by!" I cant help but feel this is true. I feel like I was meant to come down here. I was meant to meet these people and discover this part of the world.

The reason I wanted to talk about this today is because I am sure that I cant be the one person in the world that is second guessing a decision that they have made or maybe feeling a bit homesick? So I thought I would share what helped me. My advice would be, first of all get a good nights sleep (It really clears the mind) Then go somewhere you feel calm (this could even be your bedroom) Then think of all the reasons you made the decision in the first place - Are all the reasons still valid?? Then think about all the benefits of the decision you have made or all the things you like about it. After you should have a much clearer view of where you think you are headed or if its time to make a new decision for your own best interest. Ive said it before & I will say it again! You only have one life!! Dont waste it being miserable! Do whats best for you & enjoy it to the max!

I hope this may have help one of you!! Please, If you have any tips yourself share them with us in the comment section below!!

Here we go for one last time-


1. What do you think is you most annoying trait!?

hmm... I think I probably have a lot of them, but I like to think of it as more like quirky. Im a little OCD on things being clean.. like germs and hygiene, so that can probably get annoying. Im a little more extreme about it than your average person. Im also a very animated person, quite curious like "what you doing?, why you doing that?" So that might annoy people too... I also talk quite abit so that could also be annoying. (hmm dont know if im painting a good picture of myself here haha, please still be my friend haha)

2. If you could only use 3 make up products for the rest of the year what would they be??

Hmm.. as a beauty blogger this is a tough one but if I had to choose... Mascara, Foundation & Bronzer (not sure if its technically cheating but I would just use lip balm for my lips... Thats not cheating right?) I really would like concealer but as my skin isnt bad (I am extremely lucky) foundation will do the job but I love concealer for highlighting!

3. What are your 3 favourite blogs to read?

Im not sure if this means specific bloggers or blog types... If its specific bloggers then Im sorry but I just couldnt narrow it down to 3 but my favourite types of blogs to read are almost anything beauty related, Lifestyle eg.. fashion, DIY, Home hauls... that sort of thing, & also travel blogs.. so many places in the worl I want to visit & they give me inspiration!!

4. Who is you celebrity Crush?

Oh so many! but Im going cheat & do top 3.... The love of my life for a good 10 years at least now Johnny Depp, Superhero hotness Stephen Amell (Arrow) & of course the hotest FBI agent in the world, Shemar Moore (Derek Morgan, Criminal minds) There are many more but these are the top 3 that came to mind!

5. What is your holy grail drugstore product?

Again so many.. you would have to narrow it down to a categoryof make up to be honest but the first one that comes to mind that I would cry about if they ever took it off the shelves is Loreal True Match foundation. You guys have heard me talk about this foundation time & time again! I love it!

6. Name 3 things you want to achieve before the end of the year!

  1. Saving - I really want to save enough money to up grade all my technology & go on holidays at the end of summer. I love my laptop its my baby but she has seen better days & soon she is going to give up on me all together #sadface. I want a new tablet or even better, one that transforms into a netbook for travel purposes & also an external hard - drive. Also I am in badly in need of a good holiday! Getting seriously ichy to speak!
  2. Horse Riding - I have mentioned this a couple of times before too but I really want to get back into again. Now that I have a couple of schools near me I cant think of any better time to get back into the swing of things and actually get good at it!! why not!!?
  3. Blogging - I really want to do what I can to be the best that I can be! I want to learn everything I can to make it not only a place that I love but that you guys do too! A place where you can come and chill out for while, just relax and enjoy & maybe even learn something new!!

7. Top 3 Books that you have read

Hmm.. Im actually not sure.. I would have to say #GIRLBOSS by Sophia Armoruso, I have a review here if you would like to check it out - #GIRLBOSS Book Review! Is anybody out There? by Marion Keyes (I love her!) & Reasons to Stay Alive by Matt Haig. I also have a review of this book here - Reasons to stay alive book review!.

8. How would you describe your blog?

Well I have 2 blogs. This one is basically whatever I feel like writing about. Currently it is mostly general chat & motivational posts but I want to branch out to fashion, DIY, baking & that sort of thing. My other one is anything & everything beauty! You can click here to check that out -Beauty La Linda ~ MUA 

9. If you could keep one; Facebook, Instagram, Twitter - which one would you keep & why?

Ok so If its personal then Facebook because its one of the main ways I stay caught up with my friends & the world. However if we are talking about blogging wise it would be Twitter as its my favourite platform to not only promote but meet, chat to other bloggers & find new blogs to read. 

10. Favourite Restaurant

I actually dont really have one. I have alot of places I love going to but I dont have an out & out favourite that I would go to as a special treat!

11. How would you describe your perfect night in?

Ooh Comfy Pjs, Home Spa night (bath/shower, spending time on hair & skin) take away, chocolate, Netflix, probably social media (lets be real) & maybe one of my friends over for gossip & chats!
