Happy Wednesday night everyone! I am definitely not feeling this work week, busy season is no joke as an auditor. Responsibility seriously sucks. I feel like all I've done is complain this week, but sometimes a good whinge is all you need to make yourself feel better. I'm really looking forward to the long weekend … Continue reading Weekend Vibes
It's incredible how much of a difference an extra 15 minutes in the morning can improve your day. I was feeling particularly tired last night so I decided against washing my hair, pretty grim of me, I know. I just could not muster the energy after work and after making myself attend a workout class! … Continue reading Good Hair Days Make for Good Work Days
Today has been an absolutely miserable day where I live and after half the week off last week it's safe to say I was not feeling work today. So I turned to the most comfy outfit that I have, which is still pretty cute in my opinion. The polo neck was from Debenhams and it's … Continue reading Comfy Rainy Day Work Outfit
This past week I took my first days off since I started working back in September so I've had a few days to be a bit more 'wild' with my makeup. It makes me so sad that I can't experiment with my eyeshadow for work but that's just how the cookie crumbles I guess. Years … Continue reading Casual Makeup Look
This was a look I created earlier this week using the Urban Decay Naked Smoky palette. I don't often reach for these cool toned types of colours but love them once they are applied. Crazy eyebrow you'll have to ignore but I've been liking a bit more of an unruly look for some reason? Anyone … Continue reading Cool Toned Daytime Look
Happy Wednesday everyone! I hope you're all having a lovely week, we're half way to the weekend woo! Just a warning, you'll have to ignore my disgustingly dry cuticles in this post, my apologies in advance for any distress they may cause. I thought I'd share my collection of rings which is likely way too … Continue reading Pandora Ring Collection
Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there! I have just finished getting ready to go out for lunch with all of my family to celebrate and I though I would share the makeup look I created today. The products I used are all basically the same as in my post Weekend Daytime Makeup … Continue reading Mother’s Day Makeup
Weekends are mostly reserved for family time and we tend to go out for lunch usually. Today was such a dreary, cold and windy day so I wanted to go more comfortable. I stuck with some skinny jeans, a cream polo neck and I paired this with my light blue coat. Overall very comfy and … Continue reading Weekend Daytime Makeup and New Nails!
Long time no blog! I hate how unmotivated I am beauty-wise. I remember the times when I would come home from school and literally just do my makeup a couple of times, just because it was what I enjoyed doing! I hope I get that motivation back at some point in my life, that would … Continue reading Pamper Day
Finds a cool looking wall, places hand, snaps pic. Despite the awkward pic, hope you all like the look! - Michelle xx
I get my nails done every two weeks with gel polish, so I thought I'd post a photo showing off what I decided to wear for the next fortnight! It kind of reminds me of ice cream? Or sweets! I'm hungry, can you tell? Hope you guys like them, what should I get done next … Continue reading Nails!
These past two weeks have been...interesting. A couple weeks ago I was so happy with my progress, I had managed to post 3 chapters of my story onto my creative writing site and then reality hit once work started again. The amount of overtime I've been doing is actually ridiculous. 8.5 hours of my every … Continue reading Posting Schedule
I've been in a bit of a down mood recently, as is probably evident after my post yesterday. I've lacked motivation and drive to do much of anything. Can you tell that it's busy season at work and I've worked an extra 5.5 hours this week that I won't be paid for? They say that … Continue reading Choices
Does anyone else get sudden, large bouts of determination from time to time? You have a long day at work and when you get home you think: you know what? Enough of this crap, I'm going to start my own business where I make the rules and no one can tell ME what to do, … Continue reading Useless Determination?
Happy Sunday! Today I've gone out with my family and decided to create a look with my new Huda Beauty eyeshadow palette. I started off by sweeping Demure through my crease with a big fluffy brush and buffed it as a lighter transition shade. Then I took Sandalwood and applied it more precisely into my … Continue reading Huda Beauty Rose Gold Palette Look
Hello! Long time no blog! Life has been incredibly busy and tiring these past couple of months with work (and general laziness after long days). I've completely given up on working out and haven't done a single bit of physical activity in weeks, which is absolutely horrible but I'll work on that 😂. Onto the … Continue reading Sephora Makeup Haul
Holy moly was today a tough day! Being a junior in a company gives you some long work days that seem to last forever. Despite this I did manage to get to the gym today and even though I felt particularly weak, I'm very happy that I went! Today, as I'm sure you already gathered, … Continue reading Legs!: Tuesday 18th September, 2018
What a busy week it has been! Unfortunately I haven't gotten the chance to blog in quite a while so unfortunately I missed a few of my workouts. But worry not as there will be more to come! Yesterday was an upper body day that wasn't too intense since I was pretty tired after work. … Continue reading Chest and Triceps: Wednesday 13th September, 2018
I officially started my first job on Monday and I've found it pretty hard to get myself to the gym because I'm usually so tired. However I finally managed to get my lazy self back to it and I must admit that I was quite disappointed. My usual cardio portion of my workout did not … Continue reading Workout: Thursday 7th September, 2018
Thursday was a bit different for me! My legs were absolutely killing me from my leg day, I could really feel it on my right hamstring and my glutes, affecting my mobility. As a result, I wasn't able to do the same level of cardio intensity that I prefer. I only got through a short … Continue reading Workout: Thursday 30th August, 2018
I started off with cardio on the treadmill. I did 8 minutes of walking at 6.0kph at 5.0 incline followed by 6 minute long sprints at 14.0 kph. This really got me sweating and had me nice and warmed up for my workout. Today was leg day so I began by using the leg press … Continue reading Leg Workout: Tuesday 28th August 2018
I have recently become a big fan of Grace Fit UK, which I know is very different to my usual makeup talk. But this has welcomed a sudden urge to become incredibly fit and healthy in order to hopefully look even half as good as she does. As a result, I have ordered one of … Continue reading My Fitness Goals for the Rest of 2018
