    Victims of Society

    Self – Confidence What is self – confidence? Noun   a feeling of trust in one’s abilities, qualities, and judgement.   I have always been one who has suffered with little self-confidence, the fear of never being good enough. Growing up I was always different, always taller always bigger. I always struggled to find clothes I liked that fitted and made me feel good. So, I settled. I settled for baggy shirts and ill-fitting clothes. I grew up never feeling good enough with the stresses of society always telling me that I am not skinny enough, pretty enough or smart enough.

    January Favourite!

    My Monthly Favourite This the first of my new series where I will be talking about my beauty favourite of the month! It is also just a great excuse for me to buy something new and cool every month! So, for the month of January I stumbled upon a huge collection in Clicks called NYX. I have always assumed NYX is an expensive brand so therefore steered clear of it, but I was extremely surprised by the size of the collection at the Gateway Clicks and the price range. All the products I looked at were very reasonable and inexpensive. I was on the hunt for a black waterproof mascara,…

    Daily makeup routine

One that is lightweight, soft, smooth and that definitely smells amazing! I am always on the lookout for an inexpensive option that I love and I finally did!   The Catrice liquid coverage HD Foundation in sand beige is the best foundation I have tried… and believe me I have tried many! It smells like heaven…
