Goodbye 2015!

2015 has been the best year of my life, by far. I’ve laughed (alot), cried, had good days, had bad days, had amazing days, embarrassed myself, fell in love, and made myself very proud. I’ve done amazing things, and stupid things, met amazing people, and not so amazing people, and made so many amazing life long friends. Basically, it’s been one hell of a year, and I’ve made so many treasured memories, and I regret nothing at all. Let me tell you all about it, the great parts, the bad parts, and everything in between.

First lets talk friends. In the second half of 2014 I met four amazing girls, and soon enough they became my friends. This years our bonds have strengthend, and they have became some of my best friends, two of them inparticular. They’ve seen me at my very best, when we’ve chated all day, laughed way too much, did very silly things, and shared our deepest secrets. They’ve also seen me at my very worst, when I’ve cried until I have no more tears to cry, when they’ve had to stay up all night on the phone to me, just listening to me and understanding why I’m so upset, and convincing me that I’m really not the most horrible human in the whole world. They are the people who I can trust more than anyone in the whole world and I’m increadibly greatful to have them. I couldn’t have gotten through this year without them. When I say that, I really mean it, I love you all very much, thankyou.
But I also made some new friends this year, who I am very grateful for also. They’ve made me laugh, and been part of some of my best days. There were also some guy friends involved in this year, and our friendships began at the start of this year, when a few boys started to annoy me very, very much. This soon turned into friendships, which on my end has resulted in, laughter, confusion, anger, loving feelings (which I will not mention in this post), extreamly stupid advice, also some extreamly good advice, and a whole new set of vocabulary, most of it not very nice. I am greatful for all of you too, you have taught me alot, some of which I wish I could forget, and you have the power to make me laugh, when it’s the last thing I want to do, so thankyou.

Now I want to address some of the stupid things I’ve done. The first thing I want to do is say sorry, mainly to my friends, for things such as the time when you nearly had to phone the police because I went in a massive huff with the three of you I was out with at the time, and ran away. I wouldn’t answer my phone (I had roughly 40 missed calls) and not one person knew where I was, and you couldn’t find me anywhere. You couldn’t find me because I went off with a boy, I understand this must have scared you alot. Or the time when I ran off during school at an interval to meet someone, and I was gone for about 45 minutes, and I came into class, 30 minutes late. You had to tell a teacher because you didn’t know who this someone was, and I didn’t tell you for a whole week after. Then there is the different type of stupid, like the times where me and a friend, climbed over a barbed wire fence at school so we would win a treasure hunt. Or the time when I got so angry at someone that I through a pair of scissors at them. Or the time when me and some of my newly befriended friends ran away from my art teacher when she was very angry at us for doing something we shouldn’t have, running down three flights of stairs. I’m sorry for all of these things.

2015 has consisted of some of the best days of my life and that is all down to my friends, family and everyone else. I love you all very much, my life wouldn’t be the same without you. Thankyou for putting up with my tears, tantrums, and silly stories. You have made this the best year of my life and made it very, very special.

My Top 5 Eyeshadow Palettes

Here are my top five eyeshadow palettes, enjoy!

‘Stila, In The Moment Palette,’ £25
This palette is the most beautiful beauty item I have ever seen. The colours look (and are) incredible, with some colourful and fun, but easy to wear colours and some gorgeous nutrals witch are so wearable. You can create so many incredible day and night, colourful and nutral looks with this. But, it isn’t all about the looks, the eyeshadows themselves are exceptional. They have great pigmentation, they last all day without budging a bit, and they look just as incredible on the eyes as in the packaging. The bonus of this palette is that it comes with one of their ‘Smudgestick Waterproof Eyeliners’ which itself, would cost £14. If you need a palette that can create loads of different makeup looks, this would be a great investment to make.

‘Urban Decay, Naked Basics Palette,’ £23
This palette is all you would ever need to create numerous gorgeous natural and basic looks. It has six essential nutral colours which are stunning. The palette is very basic, but it has a sense of luxuary to it which I love. These are very wearable and you could even create a dark smokey eye with these so you can take your look from day to night. These eyeshadows are super pigmented, possibly the best quality eyeshadows I’ve ever used. The palette is small and sturdy, so it is the best thing for travel. It also has a good mirror to make it easy to use on the go. If you are starting out with makeup, or need a practical but luxurious travel palette, I would recommend you go for this one.

‘MUA, Undress Me Too Palette,’ £4
The opposite end from the previous two, but still exceptional. This has an erray of soft nutrals, cool greys, and stunning gold metallics, so you can create so many different looks. The packaging is quite sturdy and strong so it can easily be traveled with. The quality of these eyeshadows for the price, is incredible. They are very pigmented, especially the darker, shimmery ones. I would recommend this to anyone, but especially to someone who is just starting out with makeup, and wants to try out different shades and colours.

‘Collection, Little Mix All About The Eyes,” £2.99
Again, this one is right down there with the under £5’s. It has six basic nutral colours which are all quite different so you can create many different looks. The palette reminds me of the Naked Basics with the six basic colours; but this isn’t ideal for travelling wirh because of the packaging. The quality of these are incredible and they are comparable to higher-end eyeshadows. I would recommend this little palette to all and you should pick it up next time you have a little spend in the drugstore.

‘Rimmel, Glam’eyes Quad – 001 Smokey Noir,’ £6.99
This isn’t very big, but it still is technically still a palette. It has four smokey colours, including a black and white. This is the perfect little palette to use for creating a smokey eye and is great for on the go. The quality of these eyeshadows is great and the packaging is good quality. These come on so many different colours so if this colour isn’t for you, you can pick up a nutral one or a brighter one. Deffinetly pick one of these up next time you can.
