Pinterest is my new obsession. I have been pinning the whole time everything from makeup looks, to delicious cakes to fitness inspiration and interiors. Literally everything I like, is being pinned. As a result of this, I have gained a serious amount of followers, in a very small amount of time in my eyes. I thought I would share some tips with you, on growing and making the most out of pinterest. Also, make sure your following me @oisforottilie GoGoGo!!

Topshop Lipstick Collection

Topshop Lipstick Collection

Topshop lipsticks are allegedly made by the same manufacturers as the MAC lipsticks, which may be one way to describe the huge amount of exact dupes the Topshop Lipstick Collection holds. Top quality lipsticks but at a slightly more purse friendly price of £8, plus student discount ofc. I have a small collection, which I absolutely love and I have my eye on plenty more of shades in the line.

NutiPlan Teatox Review

NutiPlan Teatox Review

Teatox's are everywhere at the moment. I am very skeptical about them personally, as the ones plastering everyone's instagram feeds seem to be very celebrity endorsed which does slightly make me question how legit the enthusiasm for them is. I was kindly sent this NutriPlan Teatox, and thought I may as well give it a go.

Leaving School, Thoughts, Feelings & If I Could Do It All Again

Leaving School, Thoughts, Feelings & If I Could Do It All Again
Friday, 20 May 2016
Read post

Today is the day I have waited years for, finally I'm leaving school. Free of the education system,  its idiotic ways and useless curriculum. School has been one huge, great, long journey for me and not necessarily entirely good. I am so undecided about how I feel about it all, in one way I am not at all sad just want to get on with it and leave, the majority of my memories of school are not particularly ones which I want to cling onto and remember. However I do look back and there is a that part of me that liked it, and aspects of school I will miss.

Let's start from the very beginning, primary school were some of the happiest school memories I have. I had such an amazing time, and honestly loved school despite the small fall out with friends here and there it was pretty simple, stress free and I enjoyed it just like every small child should. Surrounded by lovely people, and inspiring teachers in a school environment like no other.

I then moved to a school for two years, to fill the gap between primary and secondary which is a time I feel slightly indifferent about, I didn't hate it but I don't have a bank of memories but what I did gain was a solid few friends, and the results to get me a place at my 'dream' school, or so I thought.

Onto Secondary school, now despite giving the impression I hate it and it was the worst thing ever, it wasn't just certainly wasn't the best. This is where my love of school ground to a halt. I really struggled, and anxiety began to become a huge part of my life. For a period of time I actively hated school, I was positive that after year 11 I was leaving and never coming back. School had well and truly screwed me over, and I was having none of it. I was even told that I wouldn't get back in, and the determined side of my decided to prove them all wrong. Year twelve, I did come back and I hated it, in the first week I cried to mum every day. Begging her to let me leave. I had come back way out of my depth, suddenly had no friends and it just reminded me of how unhappy I was before. I did carry on, evidently and it did get better and since then its been ups and downs. I feel like where I struggled with exams, and the school pressure and expectations I couldn't make up with in having a ton of friends, I have friends and I love them all dearly, however I have had a tough time with friends coming and going, and often felt quite alone despite being surrounded by masses of people. I'll never love it, but I do love my friends and the memories we have made. School just wasn't my thing, okay? Friends come and go, people change and this can be so hard, along with the fact exams aren't my strong point and I just don't fit the school mould, it was never going to be my strong suit.

I wouldn't ever do this all again, my life lessons are well and truly learnt and sometimes I feel like I really did learn some things to hard way. But if I did, I wouldn't let the result pressure get to me. I would spend more valuable times with the friends that I love, and make more effort to get to know more people. I would of started following my passion earlier and not of been ashamed to share it. I would of stuck up for what I believed rather than following the crowd. And lastly I would say F*** You to every single person who said I couldn't do it.

I don't look back at my last five years of education with the enthusiasm and happiness that I know many people will, but I don't hate it either. I've done my time, and taken from it what I can however now is my real time to shine. Free of the burden of school. School hasn't left me with nothing however, alongside some pretty awful exam results, I have gained some amazing friends and had some incredible experiences, and although not all that positive my school years are not something which I am not going to forget.

I'm hardly a fashion blogger, and in all fairness my choice of pyjamas doesn't really make me one either. However I love my bed as much as the next person, and therefore I also love pyjamas. I am intact writing this, while wishing I was in bed but I've got a long night of babysitting ahead of me. Obviously nobody needs 24 pairs of pyjamas, but here you have a large selection to choose from. Something for everybody.

The Wardrobe Crisis

The Wardrobe Crisis

Read post
What a lovely photo, you must be thinking. So artistically presented, and well organised you may say. Yes I am totally aware that I just grabbed a bunch of clothes, piled them up and snapped away. Nothing special here, what I was trying to depict was the moment that I had a wardrobe meltdown and covered my entire room in little piles of clothes, to keep, sell, bin, charity shop, stash away just incase. I had a wardrobe meltdown, and although slightly humours at the time it has really made me think.

Arbonne Skincare for Dry Skin

Arbonne Skincare for Dry Skin

Argonne skincare is not a brand which I have heard a lot about, from what I can work out its one of those brands which isn't sold it shops etc instead dispersed by individuals- however I could be wrong. I have been sent the FC5 set to test out, which I believe is designed for dry skin as this is what I am currently suffering with. There is a whole range of different products designed to target different skin concerns, so there is something for everyone.

Since posting a picture of this look I have been asked a couple of times what shadows I used etc, which inspired me to give this style of post a go. Sharing with you the details of a specific look, on the off chance that I took a good photo of it. The selfie struggle is real. This will inspire me to try new looks, use a wider range of products and of course (most importantly) force me to improve my selfie game.

What an amazing way to start May, I'm actually starting to think that Spring is finally here and Summer is well on its way but I'm not counting on it. I have a crazy couple of weeks, and have a few more very busy weeks before I'm finished with school and all the stuff that goes with it. Roll on 20th May.
