About 2 months ago I decided to get eyelashes extensions. I’ve never had them before, but I wanted to give them a try as I was tired of having to apply strip lashes all of the time. I loved them but they just weren’t for me.
So, the day I had them done I was like wowwww omg I really suit them but my eyes were so irritated and red, I literally had pink eye and it was so sore, I know its normal to get this but It was so painful. They cost me £35 so not too expensive and it took the girl about 2 hours to do.
One thing I did struggle with whilst having my lashes on was eye makeup, I rarely wore eye makeup as I couldn’t do it, I know that if I’d have kept trying I’d have got there in the end but I don’t always have a lot of time to spend on my makeup.
About 2 weeks later they started to shed which is normal as they were getting ready to be infilled but I decided that I wasn’t going to get infills due to the fact that I struggled to do my makeup so I had to go through the pain of them getting sparse and I looked like an absolute muppet by this point but who cares you are who you are!
About 2 weeks after they started to shed, I decided to use baby oil and take them out myself, it was painless and I haven’t ruined any of my real lashes.All in all, I really did love having the extensions but I wouldn’t have them again due to the fact of me struggling with makeup, but if you can do makeup pretty good with these on I am so jealous of you! I would recommend individual lashes to those who cannot wear a lot of makeup at work such as nurses or people who work with food or even if you don’t wear makeup at all, lashes will be perfect for you!

So a few weeks ago, I decided I wanted a pet goldfish, I don’t know why I just wanted a fish. I was searching the web for ages and I was basically being told that I needed to get an air stone and a proper tank and filter, I thought all this for 1 goldfish?
I mentioned it to my friend who works in a pet shop and she said about the air stone making sure there is oxygen for the fish but then she also said I could also just remove a few cups of the water and put a few cups of fresh water with water conditioner in every few days, so I decided with that one. I wanted a fishbowl for my fish, I looked some in pet shops and they were selling at £60 and I thought I can’t really afford that, so I got a fishbowl and I think it was about £10, I know you’re not supposed to keep fish in a fishbowl, but I just really wanted one. I got pink gravel and a little fake plant and set the bowl up ready for when I bought my fish, a few days later I bought a tank and an air stone and filter and set that up and left it a few days before popping my fish into her new home.
As for the name, I wanted a name which had something related to fish, so I googled cool names for fish and I found one, I was like…..this is the one! So when me and my friend went to buy the fish I called her Finderella and she used to sit on the corner of my dressing table when she was in the bowl, but she is now living in the kitchen a her tank is to big to sit on my dressing table 😊
A strange one, I know but I hope you enjoyed reading about my fishy experience! Make sure you follow my blog and follow my social media to keep up to date with everything I’m doing
Today I have a slightly different post, I’ve decided to share with you my life so far, there has been many ups and quite a few downs, so if you would like to know more about me then carry on reading!
I was born on the 2nd of July 1998 a few miles from my hometown, when I was 2 years old, my mum and dad got married and I was a bridesmaid (a very grumpy bridesmaid). I started playgroup/nursery also when I was around 2 and then started my school years shortly after. Where I live you have 3 schools, first school, middle school and high school. I attended my first school up until year 5 where I then went to middle school until year 9 where I then went to high school.
During my second year in high school (year 10) I became very poorly and had to have a lot of time away from school. I was suffering with nose bleeds for around a year prior to this, and I had a blood test in November 2012 as I was constantly tired and always feeling faint and short of breath, a few hours after having the blood test my mum received a call telling her to get to the local hospital as soon as possible, I was only 14 so I was extremely scared as id never had to go to the hospital before, I had some more blood taken and a canula put in my hand, I then had to stay in hospital for a week as I needed a blood transfusion and had to have multiple tests and scans. I was then referred to Birmingham children’s hospital as I had a tumour in my liver. I had several tests and scans at this hospital and a biopsy. I had the results of the biopsy on the 17th December 2012 where I got that the tumour was cancerous and I needed to be back down the following day to be admitted into hospital to have the tumour removed on the 19th December, my operation was 9 hours long. After this I spent months in and out of hospital with infections, bile problems etc, I also had to have an ng tube (feeding tube) for nearly a year afterwards. I went back to school about half way through the year and then sat my GCSE’s in year 11.
In 2014 I left high school, but I went back to the sixth form that was situated within the school, I had no idea what job I wanted to do so I decided to take a BTEC in Health and Social Care and Additional Science. In 2015 I started my blog and I have been writing on and off since then. In my last year of sixth form (2016) I decided I wanted a job, so I got a job at Costa Coffee and I built my way up to become a Barista Maestro, I then left Costa to start an apprenticeship in hairdressing, but this didn’t last long as I was diagnosed with cancer again in November 2016, I worked in the salon up until new year but I decided to go back to Costa as It was closer to home and they knew my situation.
In January 2017 my doctors decided to send me for a liver transplant assessment, this was 2 days at the Queen Elizabeth in Birmingham and on the 13th January, I was put onto the waiting list for a liver. I carried on working as well as having to go back to Birmingham every 6 weeks for scans and blood tests. In March 2017 the oncologist doctors decided they were going to do a TACE (chemotherapy beads targeting the affected area rather than the whole body) so I was admitted for that and I had the procedure, I stayed awake throughout it and they didn’t end up doing the procedure as they couldn’t see the veins/artery’s which are feeding the tumour. In the April, I started dating my boyfriend however we had known each other for around 5 months prior.
In September 2017 I left my job at Costa and I got another job at Sainsburys working on the clothing department in October where I work now. I am still awaiting my Liver transplant, so fingers crossed it comes soon 😊
Today I have got a testing/review post and I’m sure all of you makeup lovers are going to love it! (well I hope so anyway)0
So, a few weeks ago I bought the Styl Pro brush cleaner (late to the bandwagon I know), at first impression it seems great, I’ve seen a few youtubers using it and giving their reviews and thoughts on the products and I thought I just need to try this brush cleanser.
I’m sure the majority of you know about the Styl Pro but for those of you that don’t, it is an electronic brush cleanser and you get so many different heads to attach your brushes too along with a spinner that you attach the brush head too and place into a bowl of water with the Styl Pro brush cleanser and spin, once cleansed it then also dries the brush for you, to do this you just simply lift the brush up out of the water but still in the bowl and let it spin for a further 10 – 20 seconds.
So once you’ve put the water and brush cleanser into the bowl you then start by attaching your brushes to the heads depending on the size. You can only cleanse 1 brush at a time which can take up a bit of time but it’s still a quicker solution than cleaning your brushes manually. One thing that I did notice after drying the brushes is that the hairs on the brush don’t go back to how they were, they are flying everywhere so you kind of have to push them back together as best as you can. In terms of ‘cleaning’ I personally don’t think it cleanses the brushes thoroughly, I don’t know whether this is something I’m doing wrong but it didn’t really clean the bigger brushes 100%
It’s a really good product for cleaning smaller brushes such as eye brushes but again the only downside if the hairs going astray after drying
All in all, I would recommend this product for those who don’t have the time to clean their brushes everyday but use them on a daily basis such as makeup artists just for a quick cleanse, but I probably wouldn’t buy the solution to clean the brushes again which is a shame because I really really wanted to love this product
Thanks for reading, I would love to know your views on the Styl Pro if you have used it in the comments. Also, be sure to follow my blog and follow me on my social media!
