Colour Hide Sent Me a Package! (Review/ Haul)

Hi There!

So yesterday, really early in the morning, the post man came a delivered me a package from Colour Hide. I was super excited to open this package as i knew they would be sending me highlighters… i was in desperate need of some! Luckily, they arrived at the perfect time! Just as all my school was had run out. So now i have 6 new awesome highlighters. Basically, the way i’ll be reviewing them is

  1. Quality
  2. Colour
  3. Ergonomics

For the notebooks they sent me, there’s not much to say about them apart from the quality.

For the highlighters, firstly I’m going to say i can’t fault them at all! They quality of them is the best I’ve tried! They are said to have ”German technology” which means that they shine brighter, now i see no shine but i will say that they are very bright! On the back of the highlighters packaging it say ”4 hours of anti-dry cap off time”. Now, i haven’t tried this and i don’t really want to but, I’m going to take their word for it. The colours that come within the six pack are, pink, blue, peach (my favourite), yellow, orange and green. All of the colours are very bright and… pigmented if that’s the word? They colours don’t bleed through any paper (i’ve tried multiple notebooks and not just the Colour Hide brand). Because of this, i don’t have to worry about whats on the other side of the paper anymore, (i use to have to check because my other highlighters were really bad quality ugh!). The last point i want to mention is ergonomics. Unlike other highlighters, these ones have are curving continuously. Know, i’ve had thick brick highlighters and thin as ones so these brightly coloured, awesome patterned highlighters seem like luxury to me.

As for the notebooks, the paper is strong and thick (which i like) and i don’t mean as in thick width wise but they aren’t shear like other books i own. Each page has its own perforated section, which makes it easy to rip out if need be and the patterns on the front as so super cute and trendy!

That pretty much wraps this up, or should i say thats the end of another chapter or thats the last line this page will be receiving, hahahheee uhhh, anyway.

My art work (School gallery night) Lino printing

Hey There!

Hey there my friends, today i will be showing you my ”Lino printing” that was put up in my school art gallery as well as for tonights gallery ”exhibition”. Term 1 and 2 in art this year, along with a petri dish full of decorative items that described us, we did a painting with symbols and pictures that are memorable as well as representing an element in us. But, my favourite piece out of the three is totally this. I really just love the black sleek oil printed onto this canvas? Paper. Just the effect is so nice! This was my first time sing carving tools as well as ”Lino” so i did make a few jagged mistakes in my artwork. But, lucky for me there is quite a bit of texturing so it really isn’t that noticeable. 🙂 And i am proud to say that all the white space within the art (well, obviously is carved but) I was the student to have carved the most ”Lino”, (I even had to take it home the night before it was due because I hadn’t finished yet!).

Anyway, the picture below tells the story of me at the beach posing for the camera. Now, this memory is important to me because i hadn’t been to the beach for probably 2-3 years before with my mum. I carved birds (they’re meant to be seagulls), a boat which I saw multiple of on the horizon, a palm tree (again there was multiple but i just carved one), I then carved the waves/ ocean, the sand, a camera because, hello photography is a must on the beach and a hibiscuss (which is a type of flower) and to be honest i don’t have much of an idea why i carved this, it just needed something else and I guess i thought ”why not a flower?”.

Now, I thought I would share with you my friends ”Lino” as well as my favourite piece. Just saying though, I don’t know if i have permission to do this but both girls I’m sure was be very happy for me to post about their work.

First, my friends ”Lino” Obviously I won’t share her full name but, her first name is Maddy (Madison). Again, the story behind her ”Lino” is so meaningful and personal to her, so I defiantly won’t share the true meaning behind it but, I guess an overall idea is Sadness and Misery.

Now this next one (along with my friends ”Lino”) is my favourite! I don’t know how to pronounce her name but honestly this piece though! A-MAZ-ING! The detail leaves me is aw… Sadly, I don’t know the meaning towards hers but I think it’s possibly about moving to Australia.

So that pretty much wraps up this blog post. It’s a record for me, I’ve been typing for 20-25 minutes 🙂 Though, I’ve really enjoyed blogging this post as it is something I was looking forward too! If i don’t have permission to posting the other prints i will remove both pictures off my blog.  If you have any other blog post recommendations, i would love to hear them.

I’m thinking about blogging my everyday makeup routine and describing what each product does for me. Let me know through any media sites if you think its a good idea ❤

A Healthy Treat Idea! (Instagram worthy!)

Hey There!

In this blog post i’m going to be showing you how to make this yummy treat. (It’s super easy to make you practically don’t need me even to blog about it!). But it’s Instagram worthy which is why i’m posting it 🙂

What You’ll Need:

-Custard

-Fruits of your choice

-Bowl

-Spoon

-Knife

The fruit i picked were

*Rockmelon

*Grapes

*Blueberries

So before i go into telling you all about this yummy snack i just wanted to mention, before eating this snack i didn’t like blueberries. Now since eating this i’ve grown fonder of them. The reason i didn’t and partially still don’t like blueberries is the texture of the skin. I don’t know what it is about it but just… no. So eating this with other fruits i love and also custard just makes them 100% better! It’s also great i know nearly 100% like them because blueberries have a lot of health benefits and also has a bunch of antioxidants! So i really do recommend you try something you don’t like with something you love! ❤ And after hopefully you will like it 10x more!

Steps:

  1. Pick what fruits you want use! (Surprisingly rockmelon works well with custard!)
  2. Get either yogurt or custard for your liquid base… or if you don’t want this to be a healthy treat ice cream, hehe
  3. Now once you have chosen your fruits, chop then up into pieces/ slices if needed.
  4. Put your liquid product into your bowl.
  5. Then for a Instagram worthy picture place your fruit in a neat pattern (obviously if wanted).
  6. Then Enjoy… and maybe take a Instagram picture! ❤

Your results will turn out something like this! /\

I totally think this snack is Instagram worthy and that a lot of you will love it! And of course it you are Lactose Intolerant choose your liquid base that is Lactose free! ❤

If you guys have anything you want me to make or try just tell me in the comments! ❤

Hope you enjoyed my blog post!

Rant? Expressing feelings? (Social Media) <3

Hey There!

So. I don’t know wether to call these a rant or a big old post of feelings to do with social media?.. Anyway. So i’m just going to be talking about a bunch of subjects, yes a bunch.

  1. Bullying

Yes, bulling. This happens all too much in todays society. And honestly it needs to stop quite a bit today. Now i can’t work magic or do anything to help this situation around the world but but say this, ‘What Is The Point?’ ‘What Good Are You Getting Out Of It?’ ‘Why?’. Why does one feel the need to bully (constructive criticism is totally different)! You’re just being rude, selfish and stupid! Let people be who ever they want, they are unique and God made us that way TO BE YOU AND UNIQUE! So go put the pink afro wig on, where blue lipstick with red and purple eyeshadow, wear heels with 3/4 shorts BE YOU! DO SOMETHING THAT MAKES YOU UNIQUE AND BEAUTIFUL IN YOUR OWN AWESOME WAY! ❤

2. Copying and Stealing

Now this comes in different forms of… ways. Through pictures to drawings to essays and to your Instagram theme! I have experienced way too many times people taking my Instagram pictures, blurring my watermark out which but the way is/potentially is illegal!  I’ve also seen people be impersinated and have their account hacked again was too many times! *Sighs*

3. Hobbies feeling like chores (related to me)

I just feel as though doing YouTube and being a blogger is becoming a job/ chore and i don’t want it to become that and feel anymore like it does. It does make me sad because then i question is all this just for nothing? Am I not right to be doing this? Do I want something completely different in my life. But then it scares me to think if i quit i might miss a huge opportunity in my life to become something amazing. So i keep going ❤ Until June i will try to do a video every week or at least 3 videos a week. But when June comes i’m thinking of just 2 videos per month which hurts because i want to seem in my channel 1 video every week *again sighs* But maybe 3 i think 3 would be good but when Christmas comes around there will be 4+ ❤ of course

4.

Instagram (related to me again)

I feel happier to take Nature pictures and pictures of my dogs and OOTDS then sometimes makeup. I think by Wednesday i will make a full photography account where each Saturday and Sunday i will post 1-2 pictures. (When i finish year 12 i’m boing to go travel the world for 1 or possibly 2 years).  I am straight away going to go to Borra Borra then when it’s  Summer in England i’ll go there and then i will go anywhere else i want. ❤ This makes me happy most of all! ❤

5. My expectations/ dreams?

So what i plan is whilst i’m in year 10 i’ll try and get into the makeup industry and become a professional makeup artist by the age of 17-18 then i will work in that career and then when i’m 20, i will get a certificate in photography and become a professional in photography. Once i have managed that by the age of 26 i would like to be in the magazine industry and travel the world to take pictures of places and outfits (both for my Instagram and magazines). Yes, my expectations are high for myself, yes the magazine industry is hard to get into but hopefully with both those certificates/ jobs and (give and take a few other things i have to do) i will get where i want to be. Also it has been a dream of mine since i was little to be able to do a clothing line so hopefully i will be able to do that before 30 preferably 26. I basically have my whole life planned out but i do prefer photography over makeup…. ARGJRBGIG some might say that-I don’t know. Even if i don’t 100% enjoy doing makeup it will get me further to my goal and where i want to be, it also could come in handy. ❤

That’s basically all of it ❤ I might do a Part 2 in the coming future i’m not sure  let me know if you have anything you want me to talk about though obviously not too personal ❤
