Current Skincare Routine: Glossier UK Review

Despite my love for all things beauty, I have never had a proper skincare routine. My skincare for the past six years or so has just included the cheapest items I could find, because my God can skincare be expensive!

However, I recently decided to properly treat myself and bought a selection of things from Glossier. Glossier is a pretty new brand, I believe, from the US that have just recently started shipping to the UK – hence why every beauty blogger you might have encountered has gone crazy for the stuff. I normally get excited by hypes, but can never join in as the brands are usually so expensive. But now I’m in a point in my life where I am receiving a regular wage and just wanted to do something nice for myself, because why not?

I was genuinely surprised by the prices of Glossier. They are by no means as cheap as I am used to, but after having a look around their beautifully designed site, I was excited. I could actually try some of these things!

What I really liked about Glossier is the fact that their whole brand is based around simplicity. If you’re also a beauty fan you might understand what I mean when I say that cosmetics can be so confusing sometimes! There’s so many lotions and potions for different things, that somehow sound the same but aren’t. I for one get very overwhelmed, which is another factor into why I’ve never branched away from my discounted products.

So imagine my joy upon discovering Glossier, who’s philosophy is to bring beauty back to simplicity. All of their products are designed to simply enhance what you already have.

Skin first. Makeup second

THE PRODUCTS

I decided to purchase the Phase 1 set , which is a collection of their three main skincare items.

Glossier.2.jpg

  • milky jelly cleanser
  • priming moisturiser
  • balm dot com (birthday)

Apparently you save £8 when buying them all as a set, which totals at £35. Now this sounds like a lot of money, I know, for three items, but considering each one is around £18 I thought I’d give the bundle a go.

You can see the details here

Note: I need to say I was super impressed with the shipping! It was free as I’d spent more than £25 and came exactly five days after ordering (the shipping rate is 3-5 days). Brill!

THE REVIEW

For the record I have normal/combination skin. I occasionally suffer with dry patches on my cheeks, especially during this time of year, and have a slightly oily t-zone. My skin, like everyone’s I feel, is also breakout prone although I no longer suffer with acne.

These products have not broken me out, which is amazing. I am always worried when trying something new that my skin will throw a fit. But after weeks of using them regularly I have not suffered once.

The cleanser does have a slightly floral scent to it, which worried me at first, but it is incredibly gentle and leaves my skin feel hydrated and fresh. I have not tried using it solely as a makeup remover, but it can be used for this apparently. I’m not sure how it would tackle waterproof mascara and the like, but I feel like it would do a decent job at getting rid of your face makeup at least.

My favourite product by far, however, is the priming moisturiser. Now I have never really gotten on well with any moisturisers, as I find that they often leave my skin greasy and shiny. I would definitely never use one prior to applying makeup. However, the priming moisturiser in this set is designed to be a base for ‘makeup and/or life’ (which is cute as, don’t you think?) and let me tell you, I am in love with it!

Primer.jpg

It is honestly such a wonderful base and helps keep my makeup looking fresh for around three hours. For me, that is a miracle. My makeup only lasts around an hour even with a primer and setting spray. But when I used this moisturiser, I was overjoyed to see that even my highlighter and blusher still remained hours later!

THE CONCLUSION

Overall I am chuffed with my purchase from Glossier. I think they are an incredibly modern and attractive brand (I mean, take a look at that packaging!) that lives up to the hype. I think it’s because they are so simple. My skin doesn’t have to deal with too many conflicting products, which can be a problem sometimes. Basically I was genuinely so surprised with everything, from the shipping to the quality. And amazingly they are cruelty-free too!

I’d say if you fancy trying Glossier, you won’t be disappointed. Of course I’m not saying it’ll work for everyone but I am currently a very happy customer!

Benefit Brow Bar Experience: Wax & Tint

In a couple of weeks I’ll be turning 21 and instead of tackling all of the proper issues that are going on within this time, like reevaluating my future, my ideals and relationships,  I chose to get my eyebrows done professionally. Because I’m a woman now.

I have only ever had my eyebrows done once before and that was through a friend. Other than that I have no experience with professional beauty services and I was both excited and pretty nervous to try something.

I’d heard about Benefit’s brow services through Brogan Tate’s vlogs (I freaking love this girl. You need to watch her) and as I am currently using some of their brow products, I thought I would be able to trust them.

Disclaimer: I am a total novice when it comes to eyebrows so this is my subjective opinion. It is all my own and I am not being payed to say this (I wish I was!)

BOOKING

The whole process was pretty simple to be honest, which was a relief. I decided quite late in the evening on Saturday that I wanted to get my brows done and booked the appointment online for the next day. All I had to do was fill in some basic details, as in my email address, name and contact details and I was all booked in.

The form gives you the option to pick the service you want, obviously, with plenty of opportunity to alter it later. It also allows you to pick a preference of who will do the work for you. As I had no experience in this field, I allowed the service to pick for me.

Despite the fact I am currently based in a small city (my university home) I found that both Benefit counters in my local shopping centre offered brow services. I chose to go with the counter in Debenhams but I believe those in Boots also offer it too. You can check out what’s by you here.

APPOINTMENT

So I turned up at the Benefit counter, albeit slightly nervous and tired after shopping, and was greeted by a lovely girl called Ashleigh who had been named on my appointment form as the girl who was going to do my brows. She ran through a couple of forms with me and give me the option to do a patch test. As I have had my brows tinted before and I have used several hair dyes all without a reaction, I was able to decline this and get straight on with my appointment.

If you do require a patch test, a new appointment will be booked for you after the required time period. I just wanted mine done then and there and wasn’t too fussed.

I was asked to fill out a form claiming I had declined the patch test, as well as confirming I was not on any medications nor had I done any of the things listed on the list. Things like sunbeds were listed as these can cause issues with your skin, which may lead to a reaction. You can check out Benefits requirements here. 

WAXING & TINTING

brow-2

Final Brow w/ Makeup On

What I really enjoyed and appreciated within my appointment was at every stage, Ashleigh would stop and let me have a look so I could see the process and also get her to change anything if necessary.

Before she did anything to my brows, she talked me through the way they shape them first. It was a process I was aware of but nonetheless it was interesting to hear. Using the shape of your eye and key points from the corners to the centre of your pupil, the shape of your eyebrow is defined. For example, the arch should line up with the centre of your pupil, etc. This video explains it better.

Ashleigh was very talkative and down to earth, which helped calm my nerves a bit (I often get nervous in new situations and this was no different) and chatted with me through the service. She talked me through each step as she did it, even explaining why she was putting oil on my skin after and what the certain creams were for.

She tinted my brows first and let me have a look to ensure the colour was okay. As she was the expert I just went along with what she recommended, but they do give you plenty of opportunity to have your say and control. As I am super fair, she used the lightest shade they do and talked about some of their new products in their new fair range.

The tint wasn’t on for long, I’d say maybe three or four minutes, before she cleaned it and prepared it for the waxing. A small patch test was done on the palm of my hand to test the temperature of the wax before it was put on my face, again giving me the opportunity to have control and change anything is necessary.

The whole process of waxing and tinting took about 20 minutes, and afterwards she tested a couple of the brow products on me and recommended certain techniques to make the most out of the shape.

SOME NOTES

brow-1

Final Brow w/o Makeup On. Tint Only.

What I was really happy with was the fact that I did not feel pressured to buy any extra products or services. Although brow products were used on me, as well as concealer, highlight and I was even offered to try some mascara, I was not pressured or even asked to buy them.

I have always been nervous of makeup counters because of the pressure to buy things, but as I was already paying for my tint and wax it was obviously not necessary for me to buy more.

The total for both the tint and the wax was £21.50 (list of full prices here). That is a bit expensive compared to local salon charges but I was confident that a cosmetic company would do a good job and did not mind paying that price. For what you’re offered I would say it’s totally worth it!

I’ve been booked in again for 4 weeks time, which is when the tint will start to fade and I should see that it needs doing again. However I have the option to cancel any time or rearrange if necessary.

I am so happy with the results! I was pretty nervous as I am so fair, I was frightened any kind of tint would be too dark. But the final result is subtle and natural, which makes me feel more confident when wearing no makeup. It should also help me when I get ready too. Overall I am super pleased and feel great.

I would totally recommend Benefit Brow Bar services to anyone who is considering it. They are a bit pricey but for first timers like me, I think it’s better not to take the risk and to go with a company you know will deliver.


Beauty is an area that I’ve always been interested in and although this post may seem a little shallow, I think it’s so important to do things that make you feel good.

The Beauty Edit: Best Of 2016

I haven’t done a beauty post in a little while, but my love for makeup hasn’t subsided any in that time! Today I want to do a little round-up of some of my favourite products from 2016.

These products may be ones I have tried for the first time this year and have loved or ones that I may have used before but for one reason or another stood out majorly in 2016. This might help you find some new products to try in 2017 (God, how scary is that?) if you haven’t before, because I’d highly recommend them all.

I am a natural blonde but this year I lightened my hair a little and this shampoo has been an absolute wonder for me. Even when I was all my natural colour, this shampoo would turn the lightest points in my hair a lovely grey/silver colour which is very in right now. This is the only product of it’s kind that I’ve tried that doesn’t just tone your hair but gives it the silver shade everyone seems to be after.It’s such a dark purple shampoo that works instantly!

Even though I have oily skin, I much prefer this foundation to the matte version. It’s a completely different product with a better colour range (I am speaking for my pale people here though. I’m not 100% about the darker shades, unfortunately) and a much better coverage. This foundation makes your skin look flawless without being too cakey and looks amazing in photos. It is a bit more pricey that what I’d normally like to pay for a makeup product, but it’s amazing and lasts for ages that I won’t hesitate to pick it up again.

I love Makeup Revolution and I’ve mentioned them in all my past beauty posts, I’m sure. This year I’ve been obsessed with their eyeshadow palettes and they’re really the only things I use now. I have Flawless, Flawless Matte and Fortune Favours The Brave. Priced between £8-£10 for 32 shadows, they’re are such good value for money. They’re great quality and with a variety of shades they’re brilliant for people like me who like to experiment with makeup but don’t have a lot of money to do so. They also make brilliant gifts!

sqaure-one

I told you I love this brand! I mentioned this product in a post I did back in the summer (read here) and I’m still using it now. When it comes to contouring and all that, I’m not technical with it and just tend to wing it. This little product makes the process so simple. All the colours blend so well together and look so natural on the skin. The highlight is actually amazing and will give you that perfect glow. And at only £3.50 this little kit is a steal and perfect for any kind of look.

For years I’ve relied on wipes to remove my makeup. Then in 2016 I discovered Micellar water and my skin has been never been so happy. You can get this Garnier version everywhere now and I really like it. It manages to remove even waterproof mascara and leaves my skin feeling so fresh and clean. Even though it’s quite tough on makeup, it’s a really gentle formula for your skin and doesn’t leave you all red and rashy like some products.

So those were my top picks from 2016. Have you tried any of them? What are some of your favourite products from this year? I’d love to know.

10 Steps To Refresh and Reboot Your Body

Do you know those days where you just feel a bit ‘meh’? For some reason you just don’t feel 100% and it’s getting in the way of everything you’re trying to do.

Well, here are 10 little steps you can take to feeling refreshed, rebooted and ready to tackle that to-do list once again:

  1. Take a shower
  2. Wash, condition and brush your hair
  3. Lather yourself in a fresh smelling soap, my personal favourite scents are citrus ones. They make me feel so clean and ready to take on anything.
  4. Exfoliate and/or shave what needs doing
  5. Moisturise your body, head to toe. This is especially important in the winter!
  6. Wear your favourite PJs or comfies
  7. Put on a face mask
  8. Give yourself a manicure and pedicure. I find it hard to do anything when I feel a mess.
  9. Make sure the space you are in is warm and clean
  10. Get yourself your favourite hot drink

Then you’re ready to take on anything, my friends. At least this is what normally works for me. What helps you feel refreshed and rebooted?

Things I’ve Been Loving: November

Okay so I know I’ve just posted a monthly, wrap-up style post (if you missed that then you can check it out here) but November’s been a busy month for me and I have more things to say!

This time round I want to focus on the small products that have kept me going and made me happy this month.

Wild World: Bastille 

BAstille.jpg

As you might have seen in my last post, I was lucky enough to see Bastille in concert in November. This is a band that I have loved for years but prior to the concert, I wasn’t too fussed about their latest album. Now however after hearing it live and listening to the stories behind each track, I am OBSESSED. This album is fantastic and so relevant to what’s going on in the world right now. If you ever feel unsure, lost or a bit scared about what you see on the news then you need this album in your life.

Shiny, Patent Boots

Boots.jpg

I bought these boots this month in what was a very cheeky purchase but I’m so glad I did! They’re something a little different to what I’d normally wear (I mean, they’re shiny!) but I love the way they look. I feel like they make any outfit look more put together, which makes me feel like less of a mess on a daily basis. Ha! They were a bargain at £12 from Primark and I can see me wearing these all throughout this season and beyond.

Hooped Earrings

Earrings.jpg

I don’t know who I think I am or who I’m trying to be, but this month I’ve been loving wearing hoop earrings. I feel like they add a ‘trendy’ vibe to any outfit and fit in well with this obsession everyone seems to have with the 90s. Not sure if it’s something that suits me, but they’ve made me tragically happy this month.

Fairy Lights

Another Primark product! These beautiful fairy light, lanterns are from the VelvetGhost range in Primark and I love them. They look so cute in my university room and having fairy lights on is making me feel all festive.

False Nails

Nails.jpg

I’ve been experimenting with loads of different false nails this month and I’ve been having so much fun. My own nails don’t grow very long and tend to break easy. But having pretty, even nails is such a boost for my self-esteem so I thought I’d finally try false ones. These particular ones from Elegant Touch are my favourite and I got so many compliments on them. They lasted quite well and look so natural.

What have you been loving this month?

Four Small Things I’m Loving Right Now

Things have been a bit odd for me these past few weeks. I moved back into university accommodation and have just started the final year of my degree (*que hysterical shrieking*). Most of my time is now spent trying to settle back into a normal routine and getting stuck into work.

So when there’s lots of things going on in my life, I try to focus some attention on the little things that I enjoy on a day to day basis to keep me sane.

Here are four things that I am really enjoying at the moment:

  • Revolution Flawless Palette

Palette Crop.jpg

I showed this palette in a haul a couple of months back (see here) and I have been using it constantly ever since. I’ve been using even more recently as it is one of the only palettes I allowed myself to bring to university and I don’t regret that decision one bit. I’m not very adventurous when it comes to makeup and neutrals will always be my favourite. With it’s warm coppery theme, this palette is perfect for the new season and can be used to create so many different looks.

  • Jersey Bedding

Bedding.jpg

As I’ve just explained, I moved back into student accommodation a couple of weeks ago now which meant I had to go out and buy a few new homeware bits (any excuse really). One thing I got was this new bedding set from ASDA and I freaking love it. It doesn’t seem like much just to look at it, but  it’s made from this wonderful jersey material making it so soft, cosy and warm. This is a big deal when you’re living in student accommodation which seems to always be freezing no matter the season!

  • Big Magic Podcast

Big Magic Crop.jpg

Listen here. I was obsessed with this podcast around about this time last year. I had recently just finished Elizabeth Gilbert’s book of the same name and was so interested in the whole creative conversation. So imagine my joy when I recently discovered it had a second season! I listen to these podcasts on my little commute to my campus and with every episode I feel myself becoming more and more inspired. It never fails to lift my spirits and make me feel hopeful, something I’ve need these past few weeks!

  • Primark ‘Stay All Day’ Primer

Primer Crop.jpg

I love Primark. As someone with a small budget and an ever-growing appetite for clothing, it’s one of my favourite stores. Last time I was there, I picked up this product on a whim. I was running out of my current primer and just wanted something to use for the time being. Now, I never seem to get on with primers but I have really enjoyed this one. I’m not saying its the best product in the entire world, nor will it keep your makeup on all night but for £3 it’s pretty good and I like it.

I hope you found this post interesting. What are you currently loving?

Four Simple Ways To Get Your Shit Together

There’s nothing worse than feeling lost and stressed. The summer is basically over now and we’re all getting back into our normal routines; our workload’s are increasing and things are generally starting to pick up. In this time it is so easy to feel like things are getting on top of you and you’re starting to lose grasp.

I’m a worrier by nature so I feel like this quite often. Because of this, I’ve have come up with four simple things to do to make you feel like you’ve got your shit together and are once again ready to take on the world.

  • Clean Your Makeup Brushes

If you’re a makeup wearer then you’ll know the pain of washing your makeup brushes. I mean, maybe it’s just me being lazy but it’s a task I hate doing and will try to avoid it for as long as I can. But, dedicating even half an hour one evening to go through everything and clean is guaranteed to make you feel like you do indeed have your shit together and are winning at, well, life basically.

  • Self-Maintenance

Everyone can stop what they’re doing for a least a couple of hours on an evening and you should do. Take this time to run a hot bath or shower and pamper yourself. Shave your legs (if you fancy), wash and condition your hair, exfoliate, moisturise: do whatever it is in this time that makes you feel good because I promise you’ll feel amazing afterwards and all the more ready to keep going.

  • Do Some Exercise

Now I’m not encouraging you to take out an expensive gym membership and work out everyday. I mean, if you want to do that don’t let me stop you. But exercise doesn’t have to cost anything. Simply getting outside and going for a walk does wonders for both your physical and mental health. Put in some headphones and go for a wander and you’ll return feeling lighter and brighter.

  • Tidy Room, Tidy Mind

I can’t work if the area I’m in is messy and quite frankly I don’t understand how anyone can. Even if you’re not a neat freak, just do a quick whizz round of your room- put things back in drawers, make the bed. Having a clearer space with seriously help clear your mind and allow you to focus on what actually needs done.

Star

Keep calm and carry on my chums. I believe in you.

The Beauty Edit: A Cheeky Drugstore Haul

There seems to be a lot of beauty happening on this blog right now but considering it’s become one of my favourite pastimes once again, I’m not complaining!

Even though I don’t really have a lot of spare cash at the moment I can’t seem to control myself when I see a pretty product, especially when it’s reasonably priced. And with Superdrug’s current 3 for 2 offer going on… Well I couldn’t say no!

ALL ABOUT THE BASE

edited two.jpg

Loreal Infallible 24hr Foundation in 015 Porcelain, LA Girl Pro Conceal in Classic Ivory & Warm Sand

I absolutely love these products already. I got the LA Girl Concealers from ebay (check out the seller here) and they came the next day. I’ve been experimenting with cream contouring but because I am so pale I had to be careful with the shades. Luckily this one in Warm Sand is perfect for everyday; it’s pretty cool-toned and blends out naturally.

I’ve only tried the foundation once but so far I love it and the shade is perfect for my pale, pink-toned skin. I’m hoping to do a full review once I’ve used it more.

PURPLE TONES & SHIMMER GLOW

edited one.jpg

Makeup Revolution Flawless Palette, Sinful Colours Kylie Jenner Nail Varnish in Mauve On, ColourPop Super Shock Eyeshadow in Bill & Makeup Revolution Highlighter in Peach Lights

For some reason I am being drawn to warm, purple shades at the moment despite the fact it’s the middle of summer. Still autumn is my favourite season and I must be missing it!

The ColourPop eyeshadow came from ebay (once again, here’s the seller) although soon they will be shipping internationally from their official website! Anyway this is kind of more purple than I expected- online swatches are never the best- but under other colours as a base it looks beautiful.

This Makeup Revolution palette has my heart. The colours are beautiful and so far all seem pretty pigmented. Again, further reviews should be coming.

So that was everything I’ve bought recently and hopefully this will be the last haul for a while as I need to save some money!

Five Cheap Beauty Picks I’m Loving Right Now

Can we just ignore the fact that I have been absent from this blog for quite some time and jump straight into one of my favourite topics of the moment; beauty. (I am terribly sorry and very disappointed in myself though)

Anyway, I tend to go through phases with hobbies and become either completely obsessed or totally indifferent. And with regards to beauty and makeup and all that fun stuff, I am currently obsessed. Today I wanted to share five products I’m loving at the moment and because I am a cheapskate (the more you save means the more you can buy, right?) they’re all super affordable so you can try them too.

MAKEUP REVOLUTION: ULTRA SCULPT AND CONTOUR KIT (Ultra Fair C01)

Blush.png

I’ve been using this product for quite some time but I’ve only really started to appreciate it now. I am very pale and this kit looks so pretty and natural on my skin, but because the bronzer is fairly warm toned I can see this looking wonderful on almost anyone. All of the colours blend together so nicely and the highlight is just perfect for that everyday glow. Once more, it’s only £3.50 from Superdrug or their online store!

REAL TECHNIQUES: BLUSH BRUSH

I have wanted this brush for such a long time as for some reason I have been fascinated with the shape of it. The fact that it is dome-like means you can be really precise with your product and create exactly the look you want. I’m super late to the bandwagon with Real Techniques but I can totally understand the hype!

TIP: Check out your local TG Hughes for some serious savings on these.

MAKEUP REVOLUTION: PRO FIX OIL CONTROL FIXING SPRAY

Bottle.png

The second Makeup Revolution product of this list and my absolute favourite thing right now. I am honestly lost without this as it keeps my makeup on all day. I have always struggled to make any sort of makeup last on my skin, but with this spray it doesn’t budge. I find that even my eyeshadow doesn’t crease when I use this and I have horribly oily eyelids so that always happens! I love this and it’s exactly what I’ve been looking for since I first began experimenting with makeup.

You can get it at Superdrug or their online store.

MAKEUP GALLERY: TAKE A BROW PENCIL (Blonde)

This is by far the cheapest product on this list as it came from Poundland. I have very light blonde eyebrows and I’ve been struggling for ages to find any kind of brow product that isn’t too dark or too orange to use. I bought this pencil on a whim on one of my many trips to the pound shop (its an addiction, I swear) and it’s perfect. It’s pretty much the exact shade of my natural brows which makes it so easy for me to style and shape them. The texture isn’t too creamy but I have found that it is easy to blend out should you make any mistakes. For one pound it’s one of my greatest beauty finds!

NYX: MATTE LIPSTICK (Whipped Caviar)

Lip

 

Like every UK beauty fan I was over the moon when Boots began to stock NYX and knew I had to get my hands on some of their products. This lipstick is something I’ve been eyeing for ages after it was mentioned by one of my favourite vloggers JDRMakeup (see her blog here or search on Youtube) and I was very lucky to get my hands on it. I’ve been loving the matte lip trend and the neutral trend and this product combines the two. Because I am quite pale, this does come up fairly dark on me but still looks natural. It seems to go with every makeup look I try and just gives my face a bit of a ‘boost’ when it’s looking dull.

At £6.50 it is a bit much for what I normally like to pay for a lipstick but the quality is amazing and I’ve been wearing it so much that it’s already paid for itself twice over!

Edited.png

Those were the five products I am loving right now and would be at a total loss without. What are some products you always need to have in your makeup bag?

As always if you have any feedback, please do not hesitate to get in contact with me. I’m still learning!

A Year of rachaelic: Getting To Know Me

Okay so I missed the official birthday of this blog (15 May to be exact) but it’s been a busy start to the week. In fact on the exact day of this blogiversary, as one of my friends lovingly named it, I was busy rocking it out to Busted in my home city. So at least the day didn’t go without celebration!

But crikey, it’s been a year already. How mad is that? I want to say a massive thank you to anyone who has ever took the time out to read even one of these silly little posts or even better has followed me in some way. Honestly, I can’t thank you enough.

Star.jpg

To mark this milestone I thought I would do a little tag so you get to know more about me because I plan on sticking around! A little self-indulgent maybe but I’m such a nosey person that these things interest me to know end and some of you may be the same.

1. Are you named after anyone? No. For the longest time, apparently, I was going to be called Stephanie (or David if I was a boy) but just before I was born my mam heard the name Rachael and decided she liked that better. She said she specifically chose the spelling as “ael” on the end because it “looked better”.

2. When was the last time you cried? Well it’s exam season and I’m a stresshead so maybe last week? I was pretty close to tears on Sunday when I saw all three members of Busted together but that’s another story!

3. Do you have any pets? Not right now. I used to have two guinea pigs that I still miss and I’m desperate for a dog!

4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself? Maybe. But I often get on my own nerves as myself so it would a difficult decision to make!

5. Do you use sarcasm a lot? Far too much. I think I’m hilarious most of the time and I’m really not.

 

6. Will you ever bungee-jump? I’d love to say yes but I am a really nervous person and back out of things a lot so probably not.

7. What is the first thing you notice about people? Teeth. I use to have “Freddie Mercury” teeth which looked disgusting on me and then after that I had braces for two years so I have this weird thing with teeth now.

8. Favourite smells? Soap is my favourite smell of them all. Like a block of Dove soap. It just smells so clean and fresh and I love it!

9. Where were you born? Newcastle Upon Tyne where I still live now (unless I’m at uni). This makes me a proper Geordie with a funny accent to match.

10. What do you want to be when you grow up? Honestly it’s so clique but I have to say happy. I don’t really know what I want to do but as long as I have a job that I don’t hate and I’m content with my life then I’ll be good.

Well that was a long one but it was fun to do! I picked the questions out of what I found over on Ysis’ blog so you can check that out.

thank you
