New Year, Better Me!

HELLO everyone! Happy new year, hope everyone is well and had a good end to 2017. It is me, I am back after having a very long time off to sort myself out and you know what? I am feeling amazing for it! I can not stress enough how important your mental health is so if you need to take that time for yourself then do it, you’ll feel so so much better for it! 

I am so happy to be back and very excited to have been placed on the shortlist to work with some brands which has led to a very exciting opportunity for me but i’ll talk more about that in my next post…no spoilers yet!

Anyways this was just a small post to let you all know i am back and creating new content so..

How to relax after a long/hard day

Hello my lovelies! Hope you’re all having a fab week! Today’s post is about relaxing after a long or hard day. Everyone needs to relax every now and then so here are 5 ways you can do just that!

  1. I’ll start of with how i relax, I’ll usually come home put on some comfy chilling clothes and make a cup of tea. Especially in the winter months, a hot cup of tea and comfy clothes is a nice way to just relax in the evenings. I also light a scented candles because candles make me feel more relaxed and the smell are really nice too.
  2. Have a warm/hot shower or bath, take your time and then get into comfort clothes and take a nap or just relax in bed or on the sofa.
  3. Sit down for the evening and watch your favourite show or movie, either by yourself or with your friend/partner. Seems simple but it is a really good way to unwind.
  4. Colouring, you’ve probably all seen those adult colouring books that everyone loves, right? They are actually really good stress relievers. I often colour in the evenings and it really does help relax me.
  5. Meditate, i don’t do this personally, but meditation is a widely known way of relaxing, i would recommend just giving it a try!

So these are 5 ways i thought of, that you could relax after a long or hard day. Feel free to comment below if your have your own ways that other people could try!

Also my Q&A requests are still open i’ve only been asked 2 questions so would love some more from you guys!

5 Autumn Fashion Essentials for Your Wardrobe

Hello everybody! Hope you’ve all had a lovely week. I thought that as we’ve now entered Autumn/Fall, I would do a fashion post on 5 autumn fashion essentials for every girls wardrobe.

Let’s get started!

  1. Oversized Knit Sweater– no matter what your style is, grunge, girly, 80s..there’s always a knit sweater in your style! Make sure your wardrobe is fall of sweaters in all sorts of autumnal shades! I know mine is.
  2. Ankle Boots– last year ankle boots were a massive trend and i can see why, they’re cute, warm and go with so many outfits! Whether you go with a traditional black pair or a beige coloured work boot style, they need to be in your wardrobe this autumn!
  3. Skinny Jeans– everybody likes a good pair of skinnies right? Well autumn is the best time to wear them, they’re warm and fashionable so whether they’re black or blue, ripped or not, they should definitely be part of you wardrobe!
  4. Oversized scarf– yes these are still essential a year, if you’re going to keep your neck and chest warm then you might as well do it in style! My favourite ones are the tartan patterned ones but there are so many you can find one to match your style!
  5. A handbag to match!- let’s face it, every wardrobe needs a handbag in it no matter what the trend or season so i had to put it on the list. Try find one in am autumnal colour like browns and maroons! 

So this is my list of essentials, if you have an others you think should be on the list feel free to comment below, would love to hear from you!

Product Review:Flawless Palette by Make up Revolution

 Hey guys! Happy Monday! Hope you’re all doing well and if your win school/college I hope you’re coping with exams well! 🙂

 So here it is, my review post on the Flawless palette by Make Up revolution! 

 I got this for Valentine’s Day from my boyfriend and oh my goodness I’ve not stopped using  it! It’s so pigmented and varies from light colours to dark shadowy colours so you create some amazing looks! There’s also a very shimmery shade 4 in on the top row from the left, it’s the most pigmented, it could be used as an eye highlighter honestly it’s gorgeous! My favourites for when I got it were the coppery colours but now I like the golds and shimmery Browns! 

 I would definitely recommend this product and it’s affordable too! At only £8 I think! You can buy it from ether super drug or here … Make Up Revolution

 The only problem I would say is that the formula for some of them is a little creamier I tho k because my copper shade doesn’t crumble when I use it, it just goes shiny and smooth and doesn’t go onto the brush well…not really sure why! Also some of the colours need to be tested before use because they come out a lot darker than they look, but other than these minors I would say it’s a very practical and affordable product! 

Thank you for reading, I hope it’s given enough research for you!


Sincerely, S x

A little bit of self talk

Hello, so today’s post is something that I would write in my journal but I thought I’d post it on here just incase, I don’t know someone else feels the same and wants to know they’re not alone or just want to have a insight on me and how I feel day to day. It’s nothing major it’s just I have a lot of negative thought towards myself. I’m going through a time where I’m really lacking self confidence, In me as a person, in my body and recently my blog. 

I’m never feeling like what I do is good enough and that I’m going to fail, even if everyone around me is telling me different. It’s not an attention thing like it’s really not. 

My weight and body is something I’ve had a problem with for as long as I can remember, don’t get me wrong I never judge people on their size I would never look down on someone because they’re not societies view of skinny. But when it comes to myself I’m really self conscious about it, I’ll break down because I’ve eaten a bag of crisps and I think they’re going to make me fat. I’m not fat but that’s how I view myself no matter how much o try not to. 
The lack of confidence in my blog is new. I love blogging it’s one of my passions but lately I’ve been feeling like nothing I post it interesting, no one wants to read it. It makes me sad because I try hard but then I can’t think of anything to write about. I hope i am writing interesting stuff for all of you. I like it when all comment so I can interact with you all. 
All I want to say it that having no self confidence is something that is a real struggle in my life and anyone else’s who has it too. They are days where you feel confident and it’s not necessarily a constant thing but when those days hit it’s hard. 
Sorry for the negative post, I just wanted to get it out there. I didn’t do this to bring any attention to myself I’m really not like that. If you’ve felt the same as me just know you’re not alone! If anyone ever wants advice, help or just a chat, all emails are welcome at fxshionbusiness@outlook.com I will always get back to you! 

p.s this is my other email because I don’t feel comfortable putting my more personal main email on here yet but both are linked to my laptop and come up as a notification!
