Models Own Highlighters Have Me Glowing!

Models Own Highlighters Have Me Glowing!

Well I am impressed, Models Own come thruuuu! A couple of months ago I attended an event and recived some googdies from Models Own. Lately a few of their products have been in my main makepup bag and a regular use and that is their hightlights! Power and liquid, both popping!

I will list all the details you need to know about these products. I like them as they are drugstore, affordable good products.


We have colours GOLDEN SAND 01 & PEARL PEACH 02.

Golden San 01 is great for a glowy look and very pigmented. I use this powder more for an evening look as it add that glowy sparkle!

Pearl Peach is great when you are ding like a pick makeup look this is a great hightlighter to add to match your look. I dont really like when my make up is light and pink and hen i have gold bright highther but this one is perfect. For us black gils it s not so white or grey.


These two powder hightlighters can both be purchased online or in store and are going at a retail price of £8.99


We have colours LUSTER 03 and BRONZE GLOW 04

Luster 03 is the colour i have been using a lot lately. More during the day when i do more natural makeup or i dont have much on my face at all. A few pump and i rub it into my skin in all the areas i would normally use a powder hightlight. it really does give that inner natural glow look and even better when paired with a powder hight light for that extra pop.

Bronze Glow 04 is a bit dark for but i know once i catch mre of the sun this summer i will probably moved onto that clour. It will do the same effects to someone of a ddarker tone than me!



Let me know in the comments below if you have used these products and what Models own products you have!

NYX Cosmetics Launch Event #WorthTheHype

NYX Cosmetics Launch Event #WorthTheHype

Hey Guys, so I attended the NYX Cosmetic launch party this week and it was so #worththehype. I had an amazing time trying out all of their new products. The best part was the silent disco on the top floor of The Gherkin. I don’t recall ever going to a silent disco before but what a great first experience and the view was incredible.

The launch was in celebration for their new volumizing & lengthing mascara #WorthTheHype which does truly say what it does on the bottle (thank god). It was also for a few new products which will be launching officially in stores nationwide from 28th February and exclusively sold in Boots. It was great fun and I’m so happy that I attended.

Below I will leave some pictures of the event and all of the wonderful products which they gifted me with.


Thanks NYX for having me, you do really know how to throw a great party. Swatches of all the new products which I have will be up before the official launch date in stores for your eyes to see!!

What Are Your 2018 Goals?

What Are Your 2018 Goals?

Firstly I want to say HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all! It has been a while and so much has changed in my life I wouldn’t even know where to start, but this isn’t that sort of post today.  I really wanted to talk about some tips I have learnt and how we can achieve our goals. I don’t mean the material stuff but the goals, dreams, aspirations. Long term. I’ve come to a stage in my life where I have had to revaluate the woman I want to become. What actually matters to me. The things I can live without and start to priorities what is important, what my goals are. What I really want and where I want to be, also wat is my passion and how can I do that for living, whatever it may be. Now that sounds like a lot of things right? Well it is, however once you identify what you want the next steps would be to structure a plan of the steps, changes you have to take to get to the finishing line. What am I going to do to get to this? , What work do I need to put in to achieve this? How can I improve my knowledge on it. These few factors will help you structure a plan/ steps towards your goal.

For example your passion could be something within fashion but you’re currently working a full time job in an office, good money but no relevance to your passion and very time consuming. One way for you to have enough time and energy to put towards your goals would be considering about changing you  work profession and aim it towards something in the fashion industry or of relevance to what you enjoy and your passion, your craft. This still gives you a good balance as you will still be working which will be you an income as well doing something you enjoy in an environment where you can learn every day. You will be gaining more knowledge as you will be with similar people who enjoy what you are doing or in the same industry. This is you helping yourself and this is one thing I have realised that no one will help you but yourself. No one will get that job, but you! No one will get you to your goals and dreams but you, and that can sound a bit daunting but the end result will be so worth it , all that hard work would have paid off because YOU did it & that’s the best feeling.

(I’m kinda not sticking to a story here but it’s literally what’s in my head now!)


I’m just in a place where I’m ready to 100% commit to my dreams and goals and when I see people doing what they love and putting the hard work in, it motivates me. Always remember to congratulate and celebrates those doing good things around you and yourself,  no matter how big or small, it’s an accomplishment and you had to put in work for to see a good result which you can only do , no one else!

I’m going to post a few of my goals below which I want to keep up with you guys. Usually when I write things I want to accomplish on my blog I do it!! So fingers crossed.

I’m going to also list some good tips to structure achieving your goals and identifying what steps are needed to move forward.


  1. Stay consistent with my blogs, my brand, and my aim for all of this and to stay on track. Let’s start off with minimum one blog post a week. #TheLifeOfYv
  2. Pick a motivational book to start reading and share tips and knowledge with you all through blog posts.
  3. Try things by myself (going to restaurants going to the cinema, going to events) this is something which i feel will help me to enjoy my own company and get to know myself again & also socialise with new people
  4. Attend someone new events once a month to show support and share with you all.  This is important to me as I love celebrating and encouraging people to do what they love, whatever it may be.
  5. Learn the piano as i want to add a new skill to my life.

When setting your goals and tryng to make a plan, if you try to remember these 5 tips and apply them, I am sure this will help you. S.M.A.R.T. Objectives

Specific – It is clear (specific) so you know exactly what needs to be achieved for you to get to your goal.

Measurable – You can tell when it has been achieved (measurable) because you have a way to measure completion. How long will it take for you to complete a task until you can move onto the next? Time plan it across days, weeks, months.

Achievable – Is it achievable? Are you able to do the things to get the results you want? Are you able to specify the thing needed to do them in the time frame which you planned to achieve the goal.

Realistic – Are you able to do all of the above and reach your goal. Before setting the goal, take into account to ensure that the objectives are realistic. If you are short on time, money, knowledge within a short period your goal/ result will seem unrealistic.

Timescale – Finally the timescale element provides a deadline by which the goal needs to be achieved by. It should help you focus on the tasks required to achieve the goals. The timescale element provides a useful progress check throughout the ‘grind’ and should help stop you from postponing what you have planned to ensure good results.

Let me know in the comments below some of your goals and things you want to achieve which we can keep u together. I would love to support! Make sure to have a good year!!!

What I’ve Learnt This Month – October


Trusting in God

This month I have learnt that God has got us. What I mean by this, is that only relying on God and trusting in him is soooooo important. Making sure that you pray and talk to him EVERYDAY and thank him for all the good and bad is so what we need to do. God already has a plan for us and has our journey mapped out, all we have to do is trust and believe in him. Thank him for everything and make sure you are being the best person you can be and to continue trying. If you don’t try and work hard for yourself, why should God give us the blessings he already has instore for us. This is a journey I have been on the last couple of months and practising talking to God before anyone else. Waking up every day and thanking him for the good and bad because it’s all lessons which can only help and benefit ourselves to become a better people. We need to trust in him and cater to him through pray and worship for us to receive our blessing.

Making a plan and sticking to it!!

I’ve never really been the type pf person to work to a plan or should I say stick to it or follow it through lol. I’ve always been spontaneous and like to go with the flow or make decisions of how I feel at the time. That is not rational. Growing up I’ve come to realise that making a plan, even if it is a short term one , which I find is better sometime is a good thing. Tell yourself you are going to achieve something next month, you then have a whole month to work hard towards that goal. Make a mood board which things you want to achieve, write down words and stick it on that board so that every morning you wake up and see them. I find visuals work good to achieving things. Make a timeframe on when you want that achievement or item and work hard and save until that date/end of the month. This makes life so much easier and through that you feel yourself being more productive with your day you’ll find yourself achieving more which is a great feeling.

Not letting those who doubt you, stop from what you are doing …

I am someone who believes anything is possible, if you work hard for it and trust in God. Firstly you need to remove all negativity and focus on the end goal. If your “friends” don’t support or encourage you in what you want to achieve, they’re not your friends. They’re associates, that the categories I put them in anyway. They’re ones who are there for a good time but not a long time. If your truly passionate in something and the people around you don’t seem to be on the same page, don’t let that discourage you , or think you’re not capable because you are. And remember the only person that is going to get you to that finishing line is YOURSELF.

Thanking your loved ones

I’ve had so much love and support the last few months as I’ve been going through some things and you really get to see who is there to support you. There to give you advise and help guide you through the hard time and also there to celebrate the good times. We all know that feeling when you tell someone some good news and they just don’t seem interested what so ever. Those people are no good for you because when you need them through the bad times, there nowhere to be seen. These may be the people who just want to go out with you but actually care what’s going on deep down. Make sure to thank those that you feel are there for you. Make sure your showing them the same support, encouragement and love that you receive. Check up on them regularly, ask them how they are and how things are going. Even how’s your day been?  goes a long way.      SHOUT OUT TO MY LOVED ONE ❤

and the last one for today …


This is something I can’t stress enough and will always talk about. We are in a generation, where any idea and dream is possible. Most things are a job nowadays. Working in a place where it doesn’t spark no creativity for yourself, just getting on with life as it passes you by and doing something you don’t enjoy is not the way forward. Don’t get me wrong, we all need money to survive but you need a purpose in life, don’t just stay there and get comfortable because it’s easy because that’s boring. You don’t want to look back on your life and thought “I wish I done that “Make your one life count. Do something you have a passion for and do what makes you happy. Don’t ever give up. If you have determination and drive you will make it. God can’t give you your dreams if you don’t work hard for it. You won’t get that promotion unless you work for it, if that what you want. You won’t be successful in your field of work without hard work and dedication. That includes building your knowledge on that thing and bettering your craft, whatever it may be.

Thank you so much for reading, I know it’s been a long time since I’ve written a post like this. I’m coming back round to what I love writing about and the thing I enjoy and this is one of those things. Sharing my thoughts and being able to help and motivate people. I like celebrating things of other no matter how big or small because that should encourage you to do well as well. Celebrating someone else’s achievement and hard work only invites more blessing to you.


Let me know in the comment below some things you’ve learnt last month and some short terms goals you’ve set yourself. I would also like to know some things you’ve felt good about this month.
