Blue eye makeup using Accessorize Bejewelled eyeshadow palette!

IMG_3446

Hello lovelies!

Hope you’re all having a fab day so far! 😊  I mostly used the Huda beauty Rose gold palette & the Accessorize Bejewelled palette to achieve this look. And for those who didn’t know, Accessorize have some amazingly pigmented eyeshadow palettes. I currently own 3 and they’ve never let me know. Hope you like this look! 💙

This look wasn’t inspired by anything in particular but this blue taupey colour in the Accessorize palette was so unique that I couldn’t wait to try it out so I just sat down on my makeup chair and just started blending and I was really pleased with how it all came together in the end 🙂

Your worth is defined by no one except you!

Hello my lovelies! Happy Sunday! Sundays are fun days but also days of reflection. There will be a lot of people who will come into your life & make you feel things that you don’t really want to feel; especially those sad, ugly, lurky feelings. And I’m sure every single person has experienced hurt or pain due to someone or something. Although at the time the pain will feel excruciatingly real, remember that just because someone doesn’t reciprocate your feelings it does not mean that you are unlovable!

You are everything & more. One persons disapproval or lack of attention does not define your self worth. If someone fails to see the greatness in you it means they are projecting their own flaws or just don’t love themselves enough to see the love in anyone or anything else.

Always put yourself first & discard those silly self depreciating thoughts that come your way. At the end of the day ‘one man’s loss is another man’s gain’..quite literally! 😁

My much needed ‘ME’ time…

Hello lovelies! 😃 Hope everyone is well. I went to into hibernation mode to reevaluate, recuperate & really just to reflect on this journey called life. (Which was much needed if I may add). Often these phases come when you encounter transitional periods.

This picture is so powerful. To me it implies that you cannot catch nor hold on to something that is meant to go. Even if deep in your heart you felt life was meant to remain the same, you’ve got to let that mindset go & set it free.

Often the most precious and beautiful things in life are not meant to be chained. You can truly feel the beauty of this co existence when you let life take its own course at its own pace. This applies to most things in life; love, friendships, views, perspectives..everything! 😊

When you are no longer ‘allured’….

Hello lovelies! Happy Saturday!! 😃 This message is pretty self explanatory. We are often bogged down by feelings of guilt & shame for feeling things that we shouldn’t be or aren’t meant to because we fear it is against our morals or what is known as ‘right’ or ‘wrong’.

How can you no longer want to pursue something that you’ve worked so hard towards?..How can you not feel something towards what you spent so much time with/on? Again we are not meant to be feeling a particular way towards anything to begin with..And if we do there’s no guarantee we’ll feel the same ALL the time.

Like everything in life, feelings & dreams are transient too. What is not is our determination to keep working on something when that drive fades! Should you find yourself in that dilemma where you no longer feel that determination, it’s time to give yourself that reality check & accept the art of letting go. You are no longer feeling the same way because what you were pursuing is simply no longer serving you.

You may have a sudden breakthrough or a change of heart because you either don’t feel that connectedness or the ‘allure’ you once felt. In these moments accepting that it’s OKAY to let go is the best thing one can do! Because believe it or not, something better is in store for you waiting to catch your attention 😊 Just have faith in the divine & believe everything is happening as it should for your own betterment!

In the pursuit of perfection..

Hello lovelies! Happy Thursday 😊

Hope everyone’s having a nice day so far. We are constantly trying to perfect ourselves in the pursuit of making everything perfect. But in the process we lose so much valuable time. Seize the moment and just do what you have to do. Don’t let those nagging & doubtful thoughts take over and ruin your momentum. Just go for it!

A step towards progress is far enriching than a step towards perfection 😊
