Review: Rimmel London Kate Sculping Kit ♥

Hi loves,

Today I'll be giving you my personal opinion on the sculpting kit by Kate. I bought the kit in the colour 001 Golden Sands for $15 in the drugstore. The packaging looks really pretty with the rose gold and transparent lid, and I was really hoping the product would look as amazing as the packaging was.

When I got home I couldn't wait to try it out, and when I finally did... I was a bit disappointed to say the least. I first swatched the 'Highlight Illuminer' and found it to be pretty chalky and almost matte. I like highlighters that ''glow'' if you get what I mean, so this just wasn't cutting it for me.
Then I tried the 'Contour Sculpter'. This one sadly didn't even show up on my skin, which is also kind of an achievement as I am usually the lightest foundation in store. But hey, this contourcolour was my skin colour! Again, it was very chalky, but I must give this one points for being matte. It would be kind of weird to have a shiny contour and a matte highlighter.
When I got to the last part, the 'Blush Colorer' I had lost my confidence completely. The thing was, the blush was actually very, very pretty. It wasn't as chalky as the first 2 were and the colour was beautiful! It gives you a very nice pink glow like you've been outside on a cold winter day and so I would recommend it more as a fall/winter blush.

Overall I would give this product a 3/10 for the great packaging and blush. However, I would just recommend to spend your money on a good blush instead of a blush with 2 unnecessary items.

hope you're having an awesome day so far!

Malin

What to do when someone puts you down

Hi Loves,

A more serious post today about something I hope you'll never experience, and if you do, here's my story and some useful tips with how to respond.

Just the other day I was in class, and we had a lesson of one of my favourite teachers. We were discussing a poem and everyone had to share a 'thing' they had found in there (imagery etc.). When it was my turn, I discussed an idea I had about the poem. Well. That didn't get across too well. I interpreted one word the 'wrong' way and the teacher asked the entire class if they also thought my idea was wrong and 'too farfetched'. Now I have never heard of someone interpretating a poem in an incorrect way, but it was extremely humiliating to be in that situation and I was so glad to notice there were only 10 minutes left in that lesson. When the bell rang I quickly packed my bags and didn't even look back into the classroom.

But what can you do about it and how can you feel better about it?
1. It is important to not value the opinions and thoughts of others. Don't even give someone the power to make you feel down at all. If your entire class is against you, remember there are always people that do care about your thoughts and opinions even if they're not there with you to back you up.
2. Remember that the other person might not notice they hurt you. They could have a bad day and a short temper or they could struggle themselves. By letting their emotions go on you, they might feel better. It isn't justifiable at all, but just try to accept it and move on.
3. Talk to the person that put you down if you're in the position to do so. Sometimes it is impossible, but if you have the opportunity just talk to the person. It is the only way they'll notice how their actions affected you personally. Don't get too emotional, just casually explain the event and how you felt about it. It is very likely they'll regret it.
4. Whatever you do, don't talk back when you're emotional. Only answer when your emotions are in control. If they aren't you will be very likely to say things you are instantly going to regret, and chances are a little argument could explode into something way too big.
5. If none of these tips work? Just turn your back on the situation and never look back. It wasn't you that did anything wrong. Talk about it with someone close to you without gossiping about the other person, and let it go. Holding a grudge against someone has never done anyone any good.

I hope these tips will help you!

Malin

Book Review: A Court of Thorns and Roses ♥ spoiler free

Hi loves,

I couldn't wait to start blogging again, so I would like to start off by a book review!

A book I have read quite a while ago but positively remember is A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. I read it when I was in a reading slump but this novel lifted my spirits from page 1. The story is about a girl named Feyre who kills a wolf in a forest, however it isn't a normal wolf and she is captured and many more things happen. (Trust me, I'm dying to tell you and be so excited about everything that happens you will be astonished, but I can't because I don't want to spoil the story.)

The novel is full of action, excitement, romance and lies and it keeps you on the edge for the entire time you read it. Bonding with the characters is extremely easy, and Sarah J. Maas writes in such a way that sentences are easy to read and you really get into the story.

I really, really recommend you give it a try if you haven't already! Just... go and read it.. You won't regret it I promise you!

xoxo,
Malin




Time

Do you ever have that certain feeling that time is going way too fast, and there's no way you can hold onto it? Well that's how I feel now! It's been a year since my last post, but it feels like yesterday. So much has happened, and continues to happen. Hopefully, things will get more quiet! I do hope to start posting again every week starting Sunday! ♥ I hope you aren't fed up with me so we can start again where we left off. I still have the posts I wrote about one year ago, so I will modify them to what I am thinking now, a year later, and post them.

For now, depending on where you're at, have a good day/night!
xoxo, Malin
