“May Light always surround you;
Hope kindle and rebound you.
May your Hurts turn to Healing;
Your Heart embrace Feeling.
May Wounds become Wisdom;
Every Kindness a Prism.
May Laughter infect you;
Your Passion resurrect you.
May Goodness inspire
your Deepest Desires.
Through all that you Reach For,
May your arms Never Tire.”
― D. Simone
Hey everyone, ¡Feliz Año Nuevo! (Happy New Year!)
This is my first post of the new year and my first ever post for the #2014bloggerchallenge. Wow, it’s really 2014 already, I can hardly believe it!
But, in disregard of me living in December 34th, the first topic for the #2014bloggerchallenge is based on new year’s inspiration. The quote that I put above is basically the epitome of what inspires me for the new year. The new year for me is a chance to continue on and it’s a continuing chance to do want you want to do and fulfil your goals and dreams!
And there’s so much that you can do in life if you only try, a new year symbolises a chance to do that.
So don’t let this year be like the last – even if the last year was the best you’ve ever had – let this year be better than all the others. Work harder and play harder! There are 362 days left in this year, and there are just too many possibilities out there. So I urge you not to waste those days – not a single on. Life’s too short to spend time doing nothing. Do something.
Thank you guys for listening to my rambling, and I still haven’t heard from you guys what your New Year’s resolutions are. So, what are they? Let me know.
Bye guys and I’ll talk to you in the next post.

Hello readers of this blog post.
For this, day 8 of Christmas, post I’ll be sharing with you guys the sheets that I got to kind of get my room into the Christmas mood. The sheets aren’t really all that Christmas themed but in terms of colour, they’re on their way there.
The sheets come packed in a plastic zip-able bag and the card in the front shows what exactly is inside. Inside there are two sheet: The flat sheet and the fitted sheet, and also there are four pillow cases. The brand is ‘Home Beauty’ and it was made in China for the USA, and so I’m guessing that even though I bought my sheets here in Nevis, if you’re in the States and maybe even China, you can get yourselves one of these bedding sets if you like.
Here’s how they looked after I put them on my bed.
These sheets, to be honest, aren’t the best I’ve ever had. They shift out of place a bit too easily.
I really hope that you guys have enjoyed this post.
Bye everyone, and I’ll talk to you guys in the next post.
It’s day 6 of Christmas and so this post marks the halfway point. Today’s post will be a compilation of my favourite holiday looks of 2013. Enjoy!
Loving those lashes.
I hope you enjoy these pictures and find some inspiration from them.
Bye guys and I’ll talk to you in the next post.
In this post I just want to take the time out to inform you all of some tragic truth. I recently heard a story and then researched it and found it to be true. There have been some people that have been selling paint on eBay and have been passing it off as mascara.
That is absurdly dangerous and I was even told that someone had gone blind. I just want you all to be safe and cautious when buying makeup or any other product from eBay or any similar sites. How the people that do this can even sleep at night, I don’t know.
Below are some pictures that I have gotten from a blog ‘Sophie Rose Hearts‘ and you can use that link to read about her experience with the fake ‘mascara’.
Goodbye everyone and please . . . be safe and aware when shopping online.

This week it’s week 4 and this post will be about Christmas gift ideas for men and women and since I don’t really post anything about guys, let’s do their section first shall we.
For the boys
If you’re like me you find it very hard to find gifts for guys when you’re so caught up in the world of girl. Am I right? Well, for you all I’ve come up with a few gift ideas for the guys.
We all need to look our best right? And so how can you go wrong with a grooming kit. This grooming kit, seen above, from Sephora comes complete with a nail file, nail clippers, a lint pad, small scissors and . . . a cork screw? This one is in a good travel size, but you can get any other grooming kit that you wish.
Some guys like cologne, and so if the guy you’re shopping for likes it why not get him some? You could get him a fragrance set like the one above or maybe just something similar.
Have a bit of fun and get them a T-Shirt with a silly caption, this ‘Sorry Girls, This Guy Is Taken’ Tee is a good example. You could even have a shirt custom printed with anything you want, maybe even with something they say a lot. It’s 21 days before Christmas so there’s still time.
Who says guys don’t like jewellery? The necklace is a Harry Potter Dark Mark Necklace, so if you have any Harry Potter Fans or just jewellery lovers in general then this piece would be a good gift for them.
A guy kit comes filled with goodies for boys, for example ‘The Man Can’ in the picture above has some great things for guys.
Sea Salt Soap
You could always give something unusual, I mean who’s ever heard of sea salt soap? Or, of course, you could always think of something else unusual to give a little spice to your Christmas gifts this year.
Teddy bear. Why? Why not? What would be better than to see that look on his face when he unwraps a teddy!?! Priceless! Give a try and tell me the reaction in the comments of this post later. We can make a game of it.
*Bonus – You could always bake something as little something something extra with the presents.
For the girls
Now onto the girls.
Get one for her and you (or maybe for her and her friend if you’re her mom, or, uncle . . . or something). Friendship bracelets mean a lot and would make a great Christmas present. Get a design that would suit both wearers.
Makeup Sample Set
Are you shopping for someone who has just starting to try out makeup or someone who likes trying new makeup products? If so, then this SmashBox Try It Kit would be great for them. It would give them the chance to try out a variety of products without your wallet having to suffer.
Travel Brush Set
This is good for girls that travel or those who just like to have a makeup touch-up here and there when they’re not a home. This set is travel friendly as it is travel size and so wouldn’t take up much space in a purse or suitcase.
Have a girly girl or a perfume lover on your hands? Then get them ‘Dot’, a highly raved Marc Jacobs perfume.
I know I don’t like using the same makeup bag over and over again, so add to her makeup bag collection. Get a makeup bag design that embodies her personality – there are just so many to choose from. You can check some out here or here.
Handbags can be really expensive, but the one above is a real steal as it looks so great for such a reasonable price. But, if you want to splurge on a handbag this season go ahead. In the end it’s all about what you feel comfortable with.
So these are all the gift ideas that I came up with for guys and girls. What do you think?
Which ones would you get or would like to receive?
Later everyone, I’ll talk to you in the next post.
