Over the past 18 months I have found it challenging to maintain my weekly blog posts, get in front of the camera and all round make the effort. I could tell you a million reasons why I haven’t but I’m finally in an amazing place and ready to take responsibility. Personally, I don’t see the point in blogging if I’m not able to truly enjoy it so I’ve taken time to get myself together. You all know my previous history and now I’m 100% on the mend (I’ve made a few lifestyle changes i.e; healthy eating & working out) and now I’m so EXCITED for what the future holds!! After my upcoming Summer adventures (you can read them here) I’ve some serious decisions to make – like whether or not I want to stay here in Ireland or move and start a new life abroad.
You may remember that at the start of last summer I shared my experience of living with Chronic Anxiety (you can read it here). It took me quite some time to open up about it as I was feeling embarrassed. Eventually I built up the courage to talk about things and I sought help. Once I received my diagnosis I spent further time building myself back up and moving into a more positive place. After sharing everything with all of you I felt a huge sense of relief and gratitude as you were all so kind.
With the huge hype surrounding beauty guru Nikkie Tutorials and her collaboration with Too Faced it was only natural that I jumped on the band wagon. Now, I know there are people who don’t like associating themselves with YouTube/Blogger collaborations and that’s totally fine. However if I admire people for their artistry, hard work and determination then I will happily support them.
Over the years I’ve built up a trusty collection of makeup brushes that I either use on a daily basis or specific styles for when I’m going out. When I first started blogging I had a very basic selection of brushes that I used for everything. Looking back I don’t know how I managed it as with experience I find I need certain brushes to create and achieve certain looks. Whether I’m carving out my brow, sculpting my contour or touching up my highlight, I need the correct tools to accomplish a flawless look.
It’s been a while since I last shared my favourite beauty YouTuber’s (you can read my original post here). I thought it was about time I featured an updated collection of people who I enjoy watching. I will say that some of these lovelies do opt for a full on glamour look. Yes this may not be to everyone’s taste but I still find it interesting to watch how they create such a detailed look along with the skills and techniques they use. There are a variety of beauties from across the world that I’ve been obsessed with. With the goal of starting up my own YouTube channel some day, I only hope I can achieve as much as these inspirational ladies have.
