Poetry – Life’s inspiration

This is one of the first poems that i ever heard and i instantly fell in love.

Self pity

I never saw a wild thing

sorry for itself.

a small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough without ever having felt sorry for itself

The MANY hairstyles and selfies of I

So these pictures are in just any old random order and colour!

I was looking through my photo’s the other day and noticed that my hair has a mind of its own. Most of the colours have happened by accident and not a single one of them is my natural colour…  Anyway hope you enjoy the post anyway! wpid-img_20130430_152811.jpg wpid-img_24798000844085.jpeg wpid-img_46053893510294.jpeg wpid-img_24671888081633.jpeg wpid-img_13385855411210.jpeg wpid-img_13044892764725.jpeg wpid-received_m_mid_1390242898517_98843f29d6d9270832_1.jpeg wpid-screenshot_2013-07-17-18-02-29.png wpid-img_12995489108719.jpeg wpid-img_12982016238846.jpeg wpid-img_20121124_182049.jpg wpid-img_20120614_222449.jpg wpid-img_20120616_172928.jpg wpid-img_20121010_051031.jpg wpid-img_20140902_222724.jpg wpid-img_20140901_215934.jpg wpid-img_20141020_215151.jpg wpid-img_20141026_115144.jpg wpid-img_20141107_000726.jpg wpid-img_20141228_124656.jpg

Glossybox review

So currently i am a subscriber to Glossybox which i love. Its like getting a little present every month even tho its not my birthday! Its awesome!

In the box you get a number of gifts… well not really gifts as there is a subscription fee of course…. but you get either samples or full size products to try out.

Some are products that you may have heard of and some that you wont, but they are always in my experience been good quality(mostly).

So this picture shows how beautifully packaged it is. They have shown that there is a lot of effort gone into each box and it isn’t something that just gets thrown together with little thought.image

Starting on a negative…I was a little disappointed with this So Susan Rose Quartet, it’s in a cheap looking black plastic container and the texture of the product itself feels a little cheap. Like the sort of stuff that you would get in a princess magazine when you were like 6…with those crazy plastic glittery heels and a wand…same thing. This was the only thing in the box that didn’t hit the mark with me. Other people may have loved it.


My favourite thing in the box. Its a tinted lip butter which comes in this very cute little box, very art deco. The lip butter itself feels really nice on and the colour is really pigmented which is always good. I’m not into wishy washy lip shades.image

Shinier, stronger, thicker, smoother, more supple, frizz-free, heat and humidity-proof hair – All you hair problems sorted at the same time. It smells great. In the box it was advertised to be around £9.99 to buy however I’ve seen it body care for £5. Still for the cost of the box and whats in it, still great quality for money!


This may seem a little strange but this razor is the best one i have ever used. Not because of the actual razor head itself, but when you put it down on the side of the bath, the head doesn’t touch the side…so it dries properly…it doesn’t get rusty… its amazing.image

With a colour palette inspired by that film, this mineral powder-based eye shadow is 100% natural and highly pigmented so it packs a punch. Mineral eye shadow’s are always good! This one is no different. Great colour, great texture, lasting power. Thanks Glossy box another smasher 🙂



Even got a little sweet treat of love hearts in here as well seeming this is the valentines day special box.

I’d definitely recommend finding a subscription box to people that are interested in beauty products. It gives you the chance to find out about new stuff without having to pay big bucks for them.

Happy new year!!


My new years resolution in place, however I’m not going to tell you what it is! Ha Basically, I don’t want to set my self up to fail. Nothing worse than hearing people go on about their new years resolution until they get to week 3 and then all goes quiet. But they are definitely worth having! But if you do want to change something about you or your life. You don’t need to wait till January 1st to do it. Choose now. This minute, this hour.

So anyway I hope everyone has had a pleasant 2015 thus far. I have gone 10 days without alcohol for the Dryathlon that cancer research has put into place. I’m not doing too bad. I’ve lost 9 pounds through quitting alcohol. So if my new years resolution had been to lose weight I would have smashed it out of the ball park with that. The scary thing is i’m not exactly a heavy drinker! I would probably have one bottle of red wine a week, that’s not even in one sitting, id have one glass with food a couple of nights a week. But hey if it helps me shed some extra weight without much effort, i’m up for that.

Anyway… So yea i’m not drinking for the whole of January and i’m doing it for charity!! Woo. Oh sorry you want to sponsor me?? That’s awesome thanks a bunch! You can donate to my justgiving page…which is Here


Death is horrendous.

It’s the debt all men must pay.

It comes to us all and yet that doesn’t make it any easier.

Death is something everyone goes around ignoring, blissfully unaware that at any moment time may be up. Our lives may be over or about to change forever “/


How is it that we can pretend that it’s fine to ignore each other whilst we spend our time doing stupid shit. We trow away time that others simply don’t have. To sit on the sofa watching bad tv all day because well “I’m only 24, I’ve got loads of time to do those thing’s I really want to”

Life waits for no one.

It’s a sad fact that I’m going to my friends funeral on Christmas Eve.
A day people normally spend with their families, I get to spend it saying good bye.

My friend’s name is Sheila.
Sheila and her husband gave me my first ever job. She has been a part of my life for 10 years. Not once did she ever put me down or make me feel bad about my choices. She was a lovely, kind hearted woman.

She had been out with some friends gone to bed and not woke up.
Sheila and her husband had been together since they were in their teens. A few years back they celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary together and joint 60th Birthday. Now I know that they were lucky to spend so much time together and so many people don’t.

But how do you go from being a couple to being one.
No warning, no time to come to terms with what’s happening. Just bam… your on your own. Being a happy joyous soul to losing your soul mate. Your other/better half, your ball and chain, your wife.

So this Christmas Eve, the holidays, family time, think about the people out there who have lost someone, are losing someone, those who are lost.

Live each day as if it were your last, as one day you’ll be right.


My Beauty Philosophy

This is a very good philosophy 🙂

Annabelle Untamed

Just a note that this is my beauty philosophy. It’s how I personally think about beauty.

1. Love yourself first.

We should all see the beauty we have in ourselves without make-up. We were born without make-up on so I figure it is not meant to be a permanent fixture in our lives. Every one of us should be proud of who were are with no alterations. There are definitely things about myself that I am not happy with. It can be hard to love yourself and your features completely. Instead of feeling ‘ugly’ or giving up on a positive attitude, think about the things you really do love. For instance, I LOVE my eyes. When I’m feeling bad about another part of myself, I focus on what I DO like.

2. Getting dolled up should be fun!

I don’t really like to stress over make-up on a daily basis. Why should…
