Seeing Star Wars: The Force Awakens!

I am not a morning person, but by the time this is published, I will have gone to a viewing of Star Wars:The Force Awakens at 6.20am, at a cinema that is a hour away from my house, which means getting up at 4.30am and that the film will be over by the time I'm normally dragging myself to work in the morning.

I am tempted to try and vlog this experience, but we'll see how that goes. Either way, I will be posting my review this evening. I am excited, honestly, I just hope I can stay awake........

The Fear of Failure

A lot has changed since I last wrote anything here, but I don't feel like I've made any real progress. Still haven't lost weight (if anything I am bigger than ever - thank you desk job) still haven't finished my book and still haven't set up my Hypnotherapy business. It is truly amazing to me, the way that fear motivates in such a devastatingly negative way - if you let it hold you back, the way that I have, get used to never achieving your goals, because that is what the future holds.

I want that to change, which is why I am back here, starting again.

More posts to come.....

EOTD: Inspired by Tanya Burr, inspired by Haifa Wehbe

So I watched Tanya Burr's latest tutorial yesterday and, always looking for a good reason to use my green eye pencil, I decided to give it a go today.

Here are the products I used:
Base: Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Broze
Lid: mix of MAC Satin Taupe and MUG Glamorous with Napoleon Perdis gold shimmer pigment over the top
Socket: MUG Purely Naked with MUG Mocha for extra definition
Highlight: Laura Geller Wonder Wand
Liner: top - Clinique Cream Liner in True Black, bottom - MUA Forest Green pencil
Mascara: Mally waterproof

Do check out her tutorial because it is fantastic as always.

Here's how mine turned out:
