Guest blog post- the importance of responsibility by DARWISH THAJUDEEN

choicesIt is easier to run away from responsibilities and blame others. “This
wasn’t my fault, why should I care?” “How does that matter to me?”
“Why would I do something for someone I don’t know?” “It is his
problem, not mine”. We all do that often. Some more often, some less.
It depends on the values we hold in our hearts and the way we look at
those issues.

What jobs can you do with a languages degree?

woman-hand-desk-office

Hello lovelies,

Hope all is going well. It is getting very cold here in London and I do not like it one bit, however, life must go on. Today I will be discussing potential jobs that you can do using a language degree since I remember the negativity when I was studying my degree- people used to tell me that all I could do was become a teacher. Although, that is one avenue that you can go down, in this blog post I hope to break the stereotypes and show you the variety of career roots that you can go down by interviewing three languages graduates (including myself). I hope you enjoy the post 🙂

December Makeup Haul

Make up haul

Hello lovelies,

Today I can finally share with you my recent makeup purchases. Over the month of December I was making beauty purchases but not blogging about them to maintain my festive post schedule. Now I have more time to share reviews with you so here is a collective makeup haul.

Urban decay full spectrum paletteUrban Decay Full Spectrum PaletteSo I got this palette at the start of December and I have not stopped using it since. Honestly, it is so versatile and I love it so much. I’m by no means a make up pro but with the variety of shades available, I have been experimenting loads! The only negatives I would give this palette are that some colours are really hard to use as you have to use a lot of them in order to get some colour on your eyelids. Apart from that I love it !

Urban decay Vice Metal Meets Matte Lipstick Palette

Vice Metal Meets Matte Lipstick Palette

I’d never bought a lipstick palette before and never knew that they even existed! But I can safely say I am happy with my purchase as it gives me a variety of colours to use on numerous occasions rather than forcing me to use one colour all the time with a simple lipstick. My only gripe with this palette is that I don’t find it easy to apply the lipstick with the brush. Maybe urban decay could improve on the brush in the future.

That’s all for now, I’m off to play with my new purchases. Leave me a comment below letting me know what you purchased recently and whether you’ve tried these products.

Lots of love,

Charlotte xoxo

New year’s resolutions

Hello lovelies,

Happy New Year! I can’t believe that it’s already 2018. 2017 was a tough but good year- I passed my driving test, graduated with a first class degree, got a job and exited my comfort zone. Although, I did experience some difficulties, it is those highlights that I will remember the most. In the spirit of the New Year I will be posting my new year’s resolutions in the hope that it inspires and motivates you to create your own. Enjoy!

I hope you enjoy reading 🙂
