Wreck This Journal Adventure! ♡

This book has rapidly become an online sensation as of late. Which to me is odd, a book? In this day and age? KIDS WANT TO READ BOOKS? You see my point. Its fantastic that something paper bound is inspiring kids and adults alike. I actually found out about this book a few weeks back but i have been inspired. Which if i am honest happens rarely these days. Thanks to the beautiful Bunny aka Grav3yardgirl i am going to start an adventure.

Bunny has decided to share her journal wrecking adventures with her (huge) YouTube fan base and i have decided to do the same thing. In short this isn't your average book.. it challenges you, makes you do things you wouldn't normally do, inspires creativity & destruction.
"Think of Wreck This Journal as the anarchist's Artist's Way -- the book for those who've always wanted to draw outside the lines but were afraid to do it. 
For anyone who's ever wished to, but had trouble starting, keeping, or finishing a journal or sketchbook comes Wreck This Journal, an illustrated book featuring a subversive collection of suggestions, asking readers to muster up their best mistake - and mess-making abilities to fill the pages of the book (and destroy them). 
Through a series of creatively and quirkily illustrated prompts, acclaimed artist Keri Smith encourages journalers to engage in "destructive" acts - poking holes through pages, adding photos and defacing them, painting with coffee, colouring outside." - Amazon Book description.
With over 100 pages i could easily split weekly videos up showing my 10 pages i have completed. Some tasks i can show on camera and others i can just explain. I love this. I have been looking for something like this in a while. Something to do away from the pc, to create, imagine and explore. Join me in this adventure?

You only need to take a second to browse Tumblr to really see how successful this book has become, so many people are uploading their completed pages and comparing the results with others, so i want to share mine :)

I purchased the box set from Amazon so after completing the first (Wreck this journal) i can work my way through the other 3 also. I really hope to learn things about myself and explore thoughts and ideas that i don't get to express on an everyday basis. All of my videos will be on with supporting blogposts :3

Thanks for reading and see you there, hopefully!

Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser ♡

Everyone including me has been going crazy over Maybelline's Baby Lips, so it wasn't much of a surprise that as soon i as i saw the Baby Skin Primer i had to pick one up or two to be exact. I was lucky, from what i have heard they've been selling out pretty quick and most are struggling to get their hands on them. I have had a very love hate relationship with primers so naturally i knew i had to give these little beauty's a shot.

The primer is a silicone gel which is personally my favourite kind of primer, i have tried many in the past though and its very easy for them to actually work against your end goal. Make-up can slide off, nothing will blend, or they smell very weird. However, you will be pleased to know Baby Skin is completely fragrance free and does exactly what it says on the tin.. errr bottle? ;)

Here i have a video review of the product where you can see me using it in action, the difference between my skin before the primer and after is already huge. Let alone when i tried to put my make-up on, everything was smoother and softer and blended amazingly.

I absolutely love this product and would 100% recommend it if you already don't have a favourite primer. Those people who prefer water based primers may not love this as it does drastically change the way your skin feels. But if you're looking for smoother looking skin and plenty of make up staying power. This is your new best baby blue friend.

I bought these products from boots costing £7.99 in store however, you can buy them on-line here.

Welcome to my blog :3

*Clears throat* Hey.. okay this is awkward, i'm writing this pretending you're watching me write.. and you're probably reading this as if i'm talking to you. Yes, i usually make videos but oddly i have always enjoyed writing. Despite my best efforts though i have never been that great at it. Army's of grammar nazi's have tried to take me down but yet again here i am.

Most of you know i have to write a lot for work, whether its interviews or reviews or even news posts. Its refreshing, i like being able to sit here in my dark office, massaging my keyboard with my fingertips and still look utterly disgraceful and not worrying about who can see me. Videos require the right mood, look, lighting, sound, camera, topic. Sometimes i just honestly cannot be fussed, especially with my recent health issues.

However, i would still love to put content out and blogs seem cool again aright? I mean everyone has one.. whether they use it to support their video content or write blogs on things they otherwise wouldn't make videos on. Either way i love the idea and would really love it if you would join me here.

I just threw this site together super fast.. it looks very messy and nyeeeeh who knows if i will even still use blogspot.. i am not that blog savvy as you can probably guess so if you have any suggestions pleaaaase let me know :) (i love my friend Beckii's blog.. its so pretty.. i want one day mine to be as kawaii and cute.)

Also, i cannot promise what will be here, whether ill discuss content ideas, talk about gaming, our vlogs, cats, makeup, clothes.. honestly, this will just be my life dumped on the interspace and you will be able to sift through the stuff you want to care about and the stuff that makes you throw up a little in your mouth.

Thanks for reading :3 i liked this.. reading is good for you.. so i saved one of your braincells.. thank me by following my blog.. and i will continue to save your cells of braininess.
