Paint with me!



I recently rediscovered my love for watercolour painting again so I decided to get out my pencil and started sketching and painting what I saw out of my window and a plus point I manage to film it in a chill cool vibe. I might make this to a series, with much dedication, motivation and support! I'm still a bit rusty but I feel a joy inside myself that I am able to create something so cute and pretty in my little velvet sketchbook that often gets neglected. There is something oh so calm about spreading water and paint to create something visual. I hope to motivate myself to create more in the future. I tend to have a really bad habit of neglecting things even if I may have enjoyed doing it.

Painting again has helped me stay calm and add a different mix to the usual email sending days. No one really tells you the effects of after graduation, the scary interviews involved in process of a job, the fun but daunting internships you'll be faced before heading somewhere with a salary. Of course, everyone's experiences are different. Maybe I might blog my experience in the future!

I'm not very good at recording and editing but I hope you enjoyed this fun little video + post! Let me know if you have any other things that you would like to watch me paint, any comment would be highly appreciated!! Until next time.

COLOURPOP Super Shock Shadows

Hello!! I'm finally back on the blogging bandwagon after a year of procrastinating and I've figured to put my graphic design skills to use, find inspiration and start blogging again. I want to make my posts much more fun and creative to break away from my creative block. I really enjoy playing around my images and layout much more and I hope you enjoy these new posts. I am no beauty blogger but I'm just recommending products that I personally enjoy using and has worked for me.  

My first post back is my cult favourite eyeshadows. I've been using these eyeshadows non-stop for about a month or two and have already hit pan on one of the shades. I never hit pan on any of my makeup and seeing it makes me happy to know that I am getting good use out of these eyeshadows. 



Colourpop is without a doubt one of the hyped up makeup brand within the beauty community online. I was curious to find out why they are so popular and I wasn't disappointed when I started using their eyeshadows and it has been my cult favourite eyeshadows since. 

I really loved imjennim's super shock shadows collaboration collection but the line ended before I got the chance to order them so here are my alternative shadows that I've chosen to put together. I really love the combination and it's just perfect for everyday wear. They have absolutely no fallout and apply really easily, buttery and pigmented. 

#CORNELIOUS - matte
My favourite shade out of all of the bunch. This eyeshadow was from the Kathleen Lights collection. It's an easy transition shade or I would use it on my eyelids on its own. The warm tone really compliments my skin tone and I just love it! I find that it works best applied using my fingers. I've already hit pan on it and I'm on the hunt for an alternative before I run out. 


#LALA - ultra metallic
Lala is a beautiful rose gold shade. I use this on my lids and normally applied using my fingers. The colour is really pretty and compliments my warm skin tone very well.  


#MITTENS - matte
I use mittens as a crease shade and it blends very well. Just a lovely warm toned brown. This matte brown shade creates the perfect definition for my eyes and it's very natural.


#DRIFT - pearlized
If I want a pop of colour on those odd days I'll put drift on my outer v of my eyes and blend it out with a blending brush. The pop of red on my eyes makes the look more fun and playful. 



If you have the money, I definitely recommend in investing in them and give them a go! I bought my eyeshadows straight from the colourpop website when they were offering $4.99 international shipping plus $5 off when purchased over $20 using a coupon code. I bought 4 eyeshadows and one liquid lipstick in Bumble and the total of my package was $25.99. I did have to pay for customs (£11.86) when my package arrived in the UK and I think this is expected so be aware! They are so worth it and unlike most of the eyeshadows that I've own. Super high quality and worth every penny.
