A Very Long Over Due Life Update

Well hello there I'm back with a long over due life update it really has been a while since I've posted one. I've been putting off writing this post because I was waiting to hear about my time at B&M so now I know I can post this!.

B&M Job
I started back in February and it was meant to end in May but got it got extended till August anyway I have good news! I'm being kept on! yay I'm glad as I do need this job and also I can look for other work too. It has been going well the whole time I've been there and I've made new friends which is good. I think it's helped me with gaining more confidence and also I'm gaining more skills and experience. I had been getting good feedback from the managers which definitely helps make me feel proud and that I'm doing a good job.

I think my blog is doing well at the moment my stats are pretty good and I'm enjoying posting content. I have gained more followers on my blog and social media which I'm happy about! I like meeting new people and connecting with others who share the same interests. My blog is still my hobby and I'm happy with that.

My plans for now are to keep working at B&M and look for other work at the same time and also work on my blog more which I feel like has taken a back seat lately but I hope to be posting content very soon so watch this space!.

Thanks for reading and I'll be back soon with more content.

Benefit Make Up Review

This is the first time I've bought more expensive make up because I could never justify spending that much. Now I have a job and I'm earning money I thought I'd give it a try and be brave! haha.

So a few weeks ago I went to Chelmsford and walked around Debenhams looking at benefit make up and also urban decay but I didn't really know what I was looking for and I was kinda too scared too ask, also I feel that I'm going to be judged.

I then went to Boots and plucked up the courage to get some advice from one of the assistants who was called Robyn. While I was there I had a little make over and tutorial of the foundation and concealer, she also used a primer and mascara but I didn't purchase them. I'm quite loyal to the Seventeen mascaras blowout and the back lash and also the Rimmel primer. I've tired others and this one is still the best!.

This foundation is really good, it feels light and doesn't feel heavy at all like some I've tried in the past. It gives good coverage and a little goes a long way. It also doesn't feel like it's slipping of your face when it the weather is hot. I'm so impressed with it and I'm glad I took the plunge and splurged for the first time!. This foundation cost £29.00 and I got shade pure for sure in Ivory. I recommend this foundation if you want to splurge! it's a good product that I'd buy again for sure!.

This concealer is the best one I've ever bought didn't think id say that but it was a lot more than I normally pay!. This comes in a little pot and a little goes along way, it's easy to blend and gives good coverage. This concealer costs £17.50 it's not normally what I'd spend but it is good!. I normally buy the Rimmel wake me up which is £5.49 which is still a favourite. I  recommend this concealer as it does exactly what the pot says! if you're looking for a high-end concealer then I suggest buying this one.

This was free as I'd bought 2 other products and so far it's pretty good!, a little goes a really long way so remember that! It blends well and gives a nice bronze look. This is a liquid bronzer which is good as you know how much to use it goes on well but it does need a lot of blending.This one is a sample sized one but you can get it full sized which is £24.50.

I hope you liked my review be sure to leave a comment and don't forget to follow for more posts!.

Things Aren't All Bad

We all have down days and sometimes feel like giving up but sometimes we need to realise that things aren't actually all bad. I don't have many down days and when I do it's normally when I have my period. If I am having a down day when it's not mother nature I try to just focus on the positive things and not dwell on the negatives or the things I can't change.

1.I have a job I'm earning money and meeting new people which is good and who knows it might turn into a permeant job.

2.Chocolate coconut chips are life it was YouTuber/blogger Brogan Tate who got me into them!.

3.I joined Apple Music for 3 months (free) and I'm enjoying listening to old school songs.

4.I bought 2 cute little flamingo and pineapple lights from Primark.

5.Watching crime/prison documentries (I know some aren't nice but they're interesting) plus they're much better than the shows on at the moment!.

6.Going to Edinburgh last month and visiting the castle.

7.Gaining more confidence by having a job at B&M.

8.Buying Benefit make up for the first time!.

10 Interview Tips

After getting in a muddle with my blog posts by thinking I'd written a post on interviews (turns out I hadn't) so here I am writing one! I hope this helps, and don't forget to leave comments I always reply.

I know how hard going to interviews is and so I thought I'd share my top tips.

1. Research the company this looks good and it also shows you're pretty interested in working there.

2. Get organised- get your outfit ready washed/ironed etc, notes, bus/train times if you don't drive leave in plenty of time to catch the bus/train, again if you drive leave in plenty of time.

3. Make notes and write down questions you want to ask the interviewer.

4. Eat breakfast/lunch depending on the time of your interview.

5. Be yourself.

6.Dont be late this doesn't look good at all.

7.Shower/bath in the morning.

8. Look presentable/smart.

9.Be polite, say hello/good morning/afternoon/thank them for inviting you.

10.Look at them in eye when you're talking.

Good luck and don't give up!.
