2016 In A Nutshell..

So to start off 2016 was anything but my year and I'm so excited to say goodbye to it! Thankfully I can sit back now and think through the year with a smile on my face because I realised a lot of things this year (who knew how right Kylie Jenner would be?) and I'm greatful for every single thing that did happen.

For me now its all about looking forward to the future and for what I have now at this very given moment and being happy with where I am in life. The last couple of months really opened my eyes to the type of person I actually am and the one I sometimes try to be. I can definitely say I'm someone who likes to be liked by everyone and if that isn't the case I start to panic and worry and think there is something wrong with me but recently I've stopped caring if people like or dislike me because I couldn't be happier with who I am. This year has shown me how full of love my heart is, how focused my mind can be and that no matter where life takes me that I'll be prepared for it.

One thing I'm taking from this year is the person I've become through the hard times because she was pretty cool and I'd like for her to stay! Between dying my hair to piercing my nose, this year was crazy to say the least. I saw so many beautiful places from Krakow to Brussels to Amsterdam and did so many wonderful things that I never thought I'd get a chance to do but I did. I know that in the coming new year I'll be on a place more than on land, travelling as much and as far as I can because that's what it's all about, getting up off your ass and seeing the world around you, experiencing the amazingness that surrounds us each and every day and not letting one day go to waste.

The thoughts of all that awaits me in 2017 sometimes can be scary but in a good way. Like starting my new job and leaving my current job of 5 years is something I never thought would happen, but it is. Because change is good, not everything is meant to stay as it is and that's okay. Everything happens for a reason and things work out the way they are meant to so we just have to go with the flow and hope for the best.

I don't really have goals as such for this year but I have a few things I'd like to be able to say I've done like buy my first car (and pass my driving test...) finally do some sort of make up course, run a mini marathon, stop world hunger, y'know, the usual kinda things...
But whatever I get up to once it makes me happy I'll keep doing it.

So, to my friends and followers, be brave and be kind in this new year, don't change who you are just embrace it, better yourself and the rest will follow.

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful New Year,

Luxurious Lashes

2016 has been the year of treat yo' self, well in my case it has! I think sometimes all a girl needs is a little pamper time, whether that's a DIY job at home or going out to a salon and getting the full whack. I was unfortunately blessed with the fairest but longest eyelashes and tint never lasts long on them so eyelash extensions was the only way to go. Looking around to see where was best to go for the quality and price wasn't too difficult as a lot of people recommended the same person which was great because then you know they must be good at what they do. But being me and always being last to the party I decided right before Christmas I wanted an appointment, and do you think anywhere had one? Course not, Then, Santa's elves worked their magic and I got a message to say there was an appointment free straight after Christmas if that would suit. To me the fact that I didn't have to try make another appointment but instead I was contacted to see if I still wanted one was so courteous and just shows you how well this girl is at running her business! Not all places would do what this girl did. To cut to the chase I went to Sylvanna in Grange Rath, Drogheda a.k.a Sylvanna's Lashes and she couldn't have been any nicer or any better at her job! The time and patience put into my lashes was immense and it was such a relaxing experience to say the least.
I wanted a more natural lash which wasn't too long and that's exactly what I got! I couldn't recommend Sylanna anymore even if I tried, she was just so lovely and really makes and effort with her clients which stands to her.
