An Autumn Eye Palette

How fast is this year going? Its already autumn, it felt like yesterday that it was easter! 
Today post is all about an eye shadow palette which I brought in the airport before I jetted off to Ibiza in the summer holidays. 

I'm not really an eye shadow girl, I prefer buying foundation and blusher, but when I saw the Bare Minerals counter something clicked and was like 'Amy get your bum over there and just have a look, but don't buy anything'. Yeah well that didn't go to plan. 
I saw this beautiful eye shadow palatte with 8 different shades from matte to shimmer, and as I have never own anything from Bare Minerals, I went straight to my mum and asked if I can have it and she said yes! YIPPIEE

Bottom row, left to right - In The Buff, Natural, Perspective and Celebrate

The palette is called The Sexy Neutrals and I believe its air port exclusive, but if you can get your hands on then 100% get it! The eye shadow lasts around 8 hours which I think is a reasonable time. I paid £29, which is a bit too much as the eye shadow their selves an't that big but they are so pigment and bold! These eye shadow colours go so well with brown or hazel eyes, which is a plus sided for me as I have hazel/green eyes. 

My favourite shades are In the Buff and Celebrate. 
In the Buff is a bronzey pinky shade with lots of shimmer but not too much so it ruins the everyday look. I wear this shade to school and my school can be quite strict on makeup but no one has said anything about it, which means that I think its an okay school colour. 
Celebrate is a very neutral on the lid base colour or just a bit of pop to the lid when you don't want to wear a lot of makeup. 

So far, I am loving this palette and I think its going to be so useful and its going to be my go to eye shadow palette this Autumn!

Whats your favourite eye shadow?

A Walk Down Memory Lane

Hows your week back at school going? Draining, exciting, nerve racking...

Today I would like to share some of my goals for this school year and some general advice and hopefully this will help whether you are starting secondary school, going into GCSE/A Levels/BTEC, what ever I hope this will help most of you some way or another. 

My number 1 goal for this year: To remain as happy and positive as I can be! 
If you were in any of my lessons last year you would of probably seen me cry at least 5 times. I am very emotional but my emotions were so high last year everything, I would end up crying. But here's a fact I don't cry when I am actually feeling upset. I cry when I am frustrated, worried, happy, excited. Weird an't I! 
To the member of staff and the teacher, you will know who you are even though you won't be reading this, well probably not, thank you for last year. Seeing me all over the place it meant so much, all the help and support. 

Hand writing needs to stay NEAT
Amy, the amount of times you got big red lines all through your work, yeah you remember your RS book, all the crosses and negatives that were in the book and you thought the red pen looked messy. Yeah love, you were the one that was making it messy! 
Is it just me that can feel the different in text books, like the texture of the page? Even though they are all the same brand? 

If you are ill accept the fact you are ill 
Last year my health wasn't that good last October/November ended in multiple doctors and AAE.
 If you are ill don't force your self to go into school, as you knew how much pain your foot was in when that teacher thought you were about to faint so they dropped the box of books on your foot. 

I know a lot of subjects do one part of the topic every lesson, so  if you  missed a lesson you missed out on about 5 marks on your test, which equals to a whole level/grading down. 
There is nothing stopping you to contact your teacher, email them, leave a message at receptions phone, get your friend to get you the work. Just as it may sound cringey to write an emailing to your teacher to ask for work. No one is going to know, so no one is going to call you a nerd or geek. Plus your teacher prefers you to catch up on the work as its less stress for them. 

Put 100% into your homework
Yes I know homework doesn't really mean much, but the amount of times you had to stay behind to finish work off or you fell out with teachers as they emailed your mum. 
Make it colourful and unique! This may sound mean but do not and I mean DO NOT, help others out with their homework, that is their fault that they can't do it, not yours. Your spare time is to be used up on what you love to do, not helping people figure out what the Pythagoras to this triangle is. 

Get up and go to the toilet, if you are not allowed to go 
Quite a few teachers at my school don't let us go to the toilet through lesson times, but if you need to go you have the rights too go. Its your health that is more important than your education. 
Don't feel bad getting up and leaving the classroom, and yeah ok they may put a negative on your sims but you needed that wee, you may get a detention but don't go to it! 

Here a tip to go to the toilet through lesson, just say you need to go and get a tissue or you left your pencil case in another class, it works all the time! Well with me it does. 

Remember your keys and water bottle 
I can not stress enough, if you leave you bottle at home, you are in for a long day! I think my school lends you money if you forget your lunch or water, I am not to sure, but just go and explain the situation to reception and I am sure they will help. Plus your friends may have some money too. 
Keys, if you forget your keys then you are stuck outside of your house for a long time especially if you siblings have forgotten theirs too! 

Have fun, make mistakes 
We are still all children here, learning about the world. I know teachers assume we know whats right or whats wrong already in our life but we don't. If you and your friend want to go and do something, go and do it, you may get in trouble, it may go on your record but when you go and apply for a job they are not going to care about what you done on 22nd October 2016, are they? And NO one should judge you via your mistakes, teachers make mistakes all the time, our parents do too even our grand-parents. Its life and that just what happens. 
You will look back on what you done and you will laugh about it, promise. 

Try your best this year, get the grades you are happy with

Another Travel To A Different Place In The World // IBIZA 2016

Hola (hello in spanish) 
On Monday 22nd August, me and my family flew out to Ibiza. Ibiza is a little island to the right of Spain. It was around a 2 hour long flight and we landed in Ibiza airport at 6:25. 
And the holiday began...

We stayed in and all inclusive hotel in Cala Pala, a 30 minute walk from St. Eulalia. The hotel was amazing and all the staff and entertainment reps were all lovely and helpful. As it was an all inclusive hotel, it meant we can just go and help our self to food and drinks all through out the day, plus the drinks bar was open 24/7! So if you want to get drunk then you can. 

What I got up to: 

There was fun and games through out the whole day for all ages.
 Me and my brother done the Club Magic Dance everyday in the pool, which was such a laugh especially, we were some of the oldest doing it. We also done water polo, which is so hard if you are small like me, and people can only see your head when you are in the pool.
Also me and my family played a game of golf, which was fun even though I get bored very easily as I an't good at that either.

As a family we went down to the beach, as it was about a 2 minute walk, and we went on a clift walk from Cala Pala beach to Nikki beach, and the closer we got to Nikki beach the clearer and the more blue the sea got. I've never seen sea so blue before, so me being me, I took a lot of photos! 

Night time walks into St Eulalia. To get into town and the marina, it was straight up the road that our hotel laid on, so there was no option in getting lost, however this road was miles long, it took us about 30 minutes in the heat to walk, but at least I  may of burnt all the ice-cream I ate off, well some of it!

Swimming in the pool! This was what I got the most excited for every day. I never go swimming at home, so having 4 different pools to choice from, made my excitement rise. 
I don't tend to swim, its more mess around and look stupid, but who cares as no one knows you, and you all, got to have some fun.
Me and my brother done a lot of handstands competitions and throwing each other up in the air, as you are apparently 80% lighter in water.

Some Of The Best Parts Of My Holiday: 
1) Pancakes every morning for breakfast!
2) Getting a tan. If you know me in person you will know how pale I am, but my tan just looks like a normal white British person skin colour, unfortunately 
3) Cinderella (non-alcoholic cocktail), this was made by either pineapple or orange juice with this kiwi juice. It is heaven!
4) Club Magic Dance, as I mentioned before, this is a dance which you do with the entertainment reps about 5 times a day, its so funny and the song is so catchy 

Ibiza was a great holiday, and I would love to go back when I am around 18 to 21, with friends as we all know that Ibiza is a big party island.
