Daily Stories – Daily Beauty – Maintaining my make up in this heat

The worst bit when you’re wearing make up in the “Uk heat” is that you need guttering for your sweat or for your make up; due to the fact that it’s like a river flowing straight off my face like nobody knows by lunch time, it’s like what’s the point in putting any on when it comes straight off your face. 

I’ve literally tried everything well not everything but you know what I mean; using some of the stuff that you already got to try out things to make it better, for me I’ve tried to do foundation, concealer, loose powder and compressed powder which is my normal routine. I have tried doing it with foundation, loose powder, compressed powder, concealer, loose powder and compressed powder.

To which it actually works because it has so many layers on it to the point of I have to sweat more if I needed to. I forget when I do my make up and stick to my normal routine because I don’t do the whole system because I look outside and think yeah it be fine. Then by lunch time I just forget about how hot it can get then all of the sudden bam sweat start pouring and I’m like you plank. 

You forgotten haven’t you like you’ve been slapped around with a wet fish on your face. Anyone else have the same problem with that they sweat so much that their make up comes off their face? Could you guys let me know how you deal with it and what products you use to stop your face leaking from sweat and ruining your make up? Please let me know because I don’t know how long we are going to have this awesome wether for.

Daily Stories – Mental Health Issues – (12.7.18) my current daily meditation when going to bed

The past few weeks I haven’t been not myself a lot of anxiety and depression but yet carried on as per normal as you do. However as I’ve been struggling to sleep recently I thought I’ll try something out by doing some sort of medication where I would play my favourite sound that’s relaxing to listen too when I go to sleep to be able to relax.

Remember I only just started this week with daily meditation it actually does work because it stops me from thinking; slowly relaxes me into a deep sleep, sometimes I forget it’s coming from my iPad and not outside. This time of year I love the summer rain more than any other time of year because the nice moist like it had rained the night before or just about to rain sometime in the day. 

I literally leave my iPad on locked so I can let it play all night with enough battery to go all night 10 hours normally work to keep it going. It literally starts sending me to sleep which is a good thing; I prefer something that relaxing than that something that’s gets on my nerves, that would just wind me up more than anything else and become more upset and etc. I like to have a peaceful mind than everything going on inside my head than everything screaming. 

Daily Stories – Daily Relationships – Dealing with everyday relationships when working with people.

I think I’m going to post one more blog for today before tonight’s match England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 vs Croatia 🇭🇷 I’m hoping that England will win tonight for the Sunday game not Saturday my bad. I thought it was Saturday.

On to the Daily Stories Topics Of Daily Relationships; you’ll find that most people you work with in any job that you may have or find, either customers or parents or work colleagues you may find them really nice and friendly to which you can get on with. You may come across those outrageous customers or parents or work colleagues that you just want to tell them as it is because they are so rude to you and yet you have to be nice to them know matter what. 

Trust me I’ve had my fair share of people in my jobs in life of when I started my first job because I’m not even mentioning the first job that I had. If you actually call it a job to be honest; he first proper job I had was in a store I’m one of those people who like to keep to myself to myself; yet you have idiot workers who like to spread rumours and what not, then you have customers who either nice or horrible or just not paying attention. Your just standing there on tills waiting and yelling saying “next please” at least 500 times until they realise that you’ve been yelling or someone tells them that they are next. It’s like what’s the point of me being here working if you’re going to stare into space knowing that there’s a long cue behind them. 

Second job was okay actually you had you’re fair share of back stabbers when your working with a few people because they are all clicky clicky sort of people. You’re either with them or your not but unless your one like me try and keep the piece with everyone even if I had my own problems at the time. 

Third job was pretty much the same clicky clicky or people make out that they are better than everyone else or you have people who you actually get on well with. I literally by being there for four years I stood my own ground by the end of it due to the fact that I hated people who think they are better than me when they are actually getting paid the same as me. So I told them how it is by the end of it because I’m not picking up more work for everyone else who’s doing the same job as me at the end of the day. 

Then one day I just clicked and handed in my noticed in they were like no way I thought you were joking about it. I was like nope gone and done it had enough now because of it all; a week later I just walked straight into my next job that I’m doing now due to the fact that I knew what I was doing and etc. 

The fourth job I have had my fair few run ins but at the end of the day I do my job and know what I’m doing when things happened. Also it’s fun to go to different places. 

Daily Stories – Daily Reminders Of The Losses – You walked with me footprints in the sand

13 years ago was on 7th July 2005 was the day England had become a new target nobody knew what to do at the time as it was the first time it happened. Since then we became strong; worked together and helped each other out by risking our lives knowing that it can happen at any time now. You probably thinking why I am writing this; 13 years ago I was just 14 years old at the time when the first terror attack happened, last year I was just 26 years old when the 3 more happened in a space of few months of each other. Tube stations and a bus was a target back then in 2005 no one could ever forgive what happened then; they still can’t now alone with the others that they’ve hit last year, and yet this time they failed because we are strong and there’s nothing the terrorists can do about it now. I’m going to write a story through an eye of a victim. 

I remembered the day you walked with me through the tunnel like footprints in the sand; holding my hand whilst I was being carried to safety because I had lost my legs, I was just 14 years old at the time and by the time we got to the platform I could see the light. By the time we reached to the top of the underground you and my other saviour came along because I had no one else; all my friends had died at the scene, we were just going to school and I just wanted my mum I was so scared and frightened. 

You helped me to understand where I’m going; no matter what you two had witnessed you still had strength to carry on to help me, you walked with me into the hospital when I was all alone and with so much unknown along the way. I heard you say “I promise you I will always be there when your heart filled with sorrow and despair I will carry you when you need a friend. You’ll find my footprints in the sand” 

I could see my life flash across the sky so many times that I have been afraid and this time I was afraid that I might not make it through the operation. When I woke up I see you both laying either side of me with your heads down next to my hands clutching them; just when I thought I literally lost my way of what just happened to me, my parents were nowhere to be seen just the two strangers who brought me here. 

The man stirred after he felt the squeeze of mine he woke and tapped the lady on the shoulder to wake her up; they both looked at me with tears down my cheeks, I knew my parents had died with the gut instinct but how and the lady had asked “what number bus do they take for work?” All I remember was that they were going on the bus that day for a change and told them what number. 

I cried uncontrollably the pain from my legs and my wounds didn’t matter to me anymore; I lost my best friends and my parents all on the same day, I was officially an orphan and no one was there to help me get through this. Over the due course of the weeks I had learnt the lady and the man were actually a couple named Matty and Izzy Johnson; they took it in turns to seek medical advice and seeking help for PSTD, everyone were surprised how much they coped of what happened to them but also taking on a 14 year old teen. I was their strength to carry on for them they gave me strength to carry on.

They told me one day if it was okay with me to let them adopt me as they couldn’t find anyone that was a living relative. I said “yes” because they had been there for me ever since that day happened; I remembered the day when Izzy had once said to me “I promise you I’m always there when your heart is filled with sorrow and despair. I’ll carry you when you need a friend” 

Every since the day came or near the time leading it up to it I use to have nightmares about it like it was continually happening; I would be screaming I would find Matt and Izzy come running down the stairs, Matt wrapping his arms around me after grabbing me before I fell to the floor and I knew that he would always be there to catch my fall. 

The words that they always say to me from day one “I promise you that I’m always there even when you’re heart is filled with sadness and despair I’ll carry you when you need a friend because you will find my footprints in the sand” it became our family motto to which I had written on my wall when I moved in. Especially designed by amazing people so that I can get around the house myself and helps Matty and Izzy. They’ve saved my life and I’ve saved theirs that day. Yet I can’t forgive the people who did this. 

Please remember the victims who were injured and still fighting for their lives until now and remember the victims who lost their lives that day. 

Daily Stories – National Variety Looks – Revisit Body Shaming

I’ve decided to revisit the body shaming article that I wrote so long ago and I thought why not visit it but under a category that would stand out more than anything in the world. Maybe not anything in the world but something it has a home too. 

In recent weeks months and so on but only recent months and weeks certain people in my life joke about my weight when they actually can’t talk. They are either saying “when is it due?” but most recently it’s turned quite nasty where they saying “come on chubby” that’s when I turn around to the point of saying “have you looked at yourself recently”. They didn’t really have much of a comeback for that because they knew I got them where it hurts and not to mess me about. 

They don’t have any reason to say it or mention about my weight when they can’t speak actually speak for themselves. They haven’t really much said anything since I made that comment even if they tried to a bit this week. What gets me is why they have to say something when they don’t truly know what’s actually know what’s behind closed doors. 

Also what gets me is like someone who’s a bit larger says something to a thin skinny person like “oh you don’t have move as much or lose so much weight” yet the skinny person will reply “actually I’m moving around quite a lot; I’m also tall, slim and everything else, I have to eat twice as much as you do to keep on going.” That bothers me when they don’t actually move a lot other than standing where they are doing what they do best. 

Why do people have to be so judgmental towards people who don’t know nothing behind closed doors. People like me and a slim person we don’t actually share the reasons why the way we are; yet people who express the feelings, show it and what not are the ones that going to get targeted because at the end of the day they are bullying other people’s weight and what not because someone else has in the past. Why do people need to body shame other people? What is their gain? 

Daily Stories – Internationals Blogs – USA 4th July 18

In aid of the USA celebrating 4th July you guys might think why USA celebrate 4th July every year. I didn’t understand it my self but knowingly we; when I say we I mean Great Britain concord the lands of America long time ago which was the time of King James, and so on. Don’t quote me what year it was but I knew it was around then due to the fact that they created two movies in Disney but I can’t spell it, if someone knows what I’m talking about let me know be much appreciated. 

During the American Revolution the legal separation of the Thirteen Colonies from Great Britain in 1776 actually occurred on 2 July: on which the Second Continental Congress had voted to approve a resolution of independence to where you would find it had been proposed in June by Richard Henry Lee of Virginia declaring that the Unites States independence by coming away from Great Britain’s ruling.

Once the voting of independence had been counted the Congress had turned its attention to the Declaration of Independence it’s the statement explaining this decision to which had been prepared by a Committee of Five, with Thomas Jefferson as its principal author. To which you may find that the Congress had been debating and revised the wording of the Declaration on which it found itself approved two days later on 4th July.

A day earlier John Adams had written to his wife Abigail “The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.”

I just thought many of my readers are from USA and why not tribute to them but also find out why they celebrate 4th July. I didn’t really know why they did until I researched it and shared a bit of the history with you guys. To which you guys can find out why as well.

Daily Stories – Mental Health Issues (28.6.18) – Dark something

People may tell you that they have mental health issues with confidence of being able to trust you or you may find that people can’t talk about it either because they are ashamed of it and people say to them. “Oh come on you don’t have anything to be depressed about” firstly what’s wrong with that statement? Second of all should they even said it in the first place?

I’ve been told that once or quite a few times to be honest when I’ve had my bad days not when I’m on a serve ones. I just literally turn around and tell them how it is people cope with different things and have had things happened to them that is completely different to that person.

Many people who has depression, anxiety and so on talk about this black dog not too sure where that has originated from. Some say they have something different than the black do; I remember my all time favourite author J.K.Rowling talking about her depression, how it made her feel and the dementors that she uses in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban she used them to express how it felt her soul of happiness and free had been literally sucking out of her.

I for one agree with J.K.Rowling that there’s something literally sucking my happiness, freedom and etc at the best of times but I’m not too sure what it is. I know it’s there trying to cause harm to me but I’m not too sure what it is. Yet I know it’s there feeding off my negativity trying to take spit it out and gain control of my mind and soul.

It’s like in the picture down below as you can see on the left you have something that’s positive and loving then the middle the wicked witch and then the skeleton hand with the rose petals dropping that’s like killing the happiness and etc. As you all know I continue to fight my mental health no matter how much I hate it.

You know I don’t let it define me or anything because at the end of the day if I let it win there’s no way I would be able to get out of it. I am known to continue you to fight it, joke about my miss fortunes of my health and whatever been thrown at me. I just literally take it on a chin give it a few days or weeks to digest it all then work out how to control in away that I can.

The Daily Stories – Luxurious Beauty – Testing out foundations

As I’m touching a few more home categories well you guys are I thought might as well bring back this category as well plus I’ve had this idea at the back of my head for a few days now. I thought it was about to release the whole new range for the category for you guys why not kick it off with Luxurious Beauty category. 

Recently I’ve been testing out different foundations due to the fact that Superdrug and Barry M stopped making/selling my foundation that I’ve been using over the years. It’s such a shame I really liked their pot pushy foundation as I could tell how much I had left in the pot. 

For about two months or so I started to use E.L.F to give it a try which cost me a bit more than Barry M foundation. Barry M cost me £6.99 a pot and E.L.F cost me £7.50 a pot the difference between them is literally 51p difference. What I found with E.L.F foundation is that I use it everyday and by the second week or the third it runs out or it gets stuck when you know there’s more in the pot because you could see it as you open it up. The product is really nice and everything but I don’t think I would use it again in a hurry I don’t think unless it’s like the last resort. 

So I began to search for another brand as I ran out of that foundation along with the two other products from E.LF to which I’m going to continue to use can’t remember what they are called. However they are in my Haul blogs as they work wonders for my skin along with Barry M purple lavender thing to go under my eyes. 

I found another brand that cost me a bit more money this time once again (by the way my sister got me them as she was in town at the time) so I’ll pay her pack asp and stop nicking her make up haven’t done that since the last time and brought her replacements. Also she needed something as well so a win win situation.

I’m currently trying out L’orel Paris 2in1 foundation not sure what the 2in1 is for but if someone could explain to me what it is let me know. It’s a bit watery but it’s brilliant because it looks like it’s going to last longer; I don’t have to put so much on my cotton pad, and most importantly it blends in a bit better along with it doesn’t make me like I’ve been tangoed. 

I’ve used some foundation where I’ve either looked tangoed or they didn’t blend very well or came out lumpy still. However L’orel Paris Foundation was £9.99 a bit more expensive than the other two £9.99 – £7.50 = £2.50 is the difference between L’orel and E.L.F. The difference between L’orel and Barry M £9.99 – £6.99 = £3.00. Yeah the price differences over time does building up to find the right one until they stop doing what they making the one that you like again. 

I’m currently still looking for the right one that I like but I think I’m pretty sold on L’orel foundation at the moment as I’ve only just started using it. So I’m going to see how I get on with it and we will see in a few weeks time. Not impressed the heat that makes me sweat off my make off but I’m quite a sweaty person when it comes to it all.
