The Only Constant

I turn 25 this year.

And that semi freaks me out.

Not because I think I'm already too old (I'm only just getting started!) or because I feel like I haven't achieved what I thought I would by 25.

Ok... Maybe there is a little of that too.

But mostly...

But mostly because I've only come to realise that the only thing constant in life, the only you can really count on from the world... is that time will always move on.
As a kid and young adult, I've always kinda seen each day as individual units, with their own self contained victories and failures.
I'm only starting to appreciate how every day, thing and person is just part of a fabric... a tapestry of life.

This means that every day will have a massive affect on what the next day will be like, but at the same time bring comfort for the things not done because, well, it's all part of a long journey anyway. We'll get to it eventually..

And yes, I've only just realised this. Next week, how to use that television device thing that sits in the living room. #SoCuttingEdge

Oh look! She has another blog!

Sooooo remember how I'm a beauty lover/addict/insane person that owns too much nail polish?

Well I finally have an outlet for these worrying but fortunately common (well, in the fairer sex anyway) obsessions. In other words, I have a new beauty blog!

Here it is linked: The Beauty Isle

Do join me on a journey of beauty discoveries, product reviews, hauls (well... maybe don't expect too many of these...), skincare, makeup (golly possibly even haircare if we all put our heads together and work out what to truly do about this cray cray Islander hair) and other adventures that we are yet to imagine at this time. Cos ya know, when dealing with a lick of lipstick and a sprinkling of blush... ya never know what's gonna happen!


I'll still be blogging here on all things "non-beauty" and "more-lifey" but I just wanted to create a space purely for the face gunk talk.

Things that movies take for granted

1. Complexion.
Everyone just gets good skin. By default.

2. Normal bodily functions... what normal bodily functions?
"Romantic" scenes that follow day long montages of sweat-inducing activities always irks me. And no one ever has the misfortune of having their "time of the month" at inconvenient moments (I'm looking at you spontaneous-skinny-dipping scene).

3. Natural conversation.
Unless  you're watching one of Apatow's offerings, chances are the conversation will flow effortlessly, especially in a meet cute. Or at least be the cute brand of awkward. You know, when the guy's jokes are charmingly inappropriate and the girl's laugh a tinkling aural delight. In my personal experience, I tend to be at my worst when I fancy someone. An adorable little romcom heroine, I am not.

Characters so cute that I had to write this post to explain to my jealous self how my life isn't a movie
