Through The Camera Lense

Hi, this Month's Secret Blogger Project was about remeniscing on our childhood haha. I thought I would sort of combine the 2 topics for this month in one post to make it easier. This post is full of photos and I have lots more, so if you would like another post like this in the future please let me know. I hope you enjoy...

So I guess I'll start at the beginning, the photo about shows me in my christening outfit on the day of my christening, the photo below is me a bit older. 

So these photos I'm assuming I was around 1-2 years old. 
Aww look at me being cute with my eldest brother here. 
This photo was taken and my Aunty Nessa's Wedding, she wasn't actually my auntie, but my mam's best friend and I have a lot of memories with her. Apparently I never stopped crying or sucking my thumb during the wedding, and this is one of the photos where I actually stopped, but I still look really miserable.

So the photo above is at my 3rd birthday party I think, in other photo's you can see my best friend Eleanor who I have known since I was 1, and I'm still friends with now. But she was half naked in a lot of the photos, and I really didn't want to embarrass her.
Th photo above shows me with my Aunty Vanessa(Nessa as I used to call her) She really was a big part of my life growing up, which is why I wanted to mention her.
This is one of the days where me and my family would take trips out, I think this is at the Waterfalls which we used to go to every year. I loved going out with my family when I was younger and I still do now.
This photo is really cute and when me and my older brother Nathan were actually nice to each other. I get told that we look really similar, Can you see it?
The photo above is in the winter ( obviously) Every year we used to build a snowman together and take a photo like this. I really enjoyed just spending time with all of my family.
Im not sure where this photo is taken, I think it might be Beamish Museum, but it was another trip out with my family. 
Look at me and my family being cute when my little sister Bethany came home from the hospital.

Another photo of me and my brothers where we used to be quite close, but with them being 18 and 20 now we have drifted apart.
Aww, look at me the little nurse, although my Career path Ideas have changed since then, I was really cute.

These two photos are of me when I was around 5 or 6, the one below is me at my Christmas party, I wonder what I was looking at haha. 
This is at the waterfalls, we got a photo on this seat every time we went, I must find all of the different photos.
Aw cute, me and my sister buried in sand at the beach.
Finally, this photo is of me at Hamsterly Forest, we go there every year to this day. We catch fish and have a picnic, and I still enjoy it now I am 15. I have loads of memories and photos of Hamsterly Forest, and it was one of my favourite places to be as a child.

Thankyou for reading, I hope you have enjoyed. Please let me know if you want to see any later photos, because there were so many photos to choose from. 

Where was your favourite place as a child?

Until Next Time, Katie x

Hi, so on Friday I did my last exam, and also my prom. So I am free for the summer so look forward to lots more posts, as I have more time to blog. I thought today I would share you some of my photos from prom .I didn't get a close up look of the makeup because I was running a little bit late. But if you would like to see a post of my prom makeup just leave a comment below and I will re-create it for you.

So here we go....
So for prom I did my own hair, makeup and nails( which I again forgot to take a photo of sorry) But i hope you enjoy the photos that I do have. And sorry for the fact that the quality isn't the best on some of them.

I had an amazing night at prom, honestly one of the best nights of my life. So that's it, I'm finished year 11 and I have my whole life ahead of me I guess. 

Have you had, or are you looking forward to you prom?

Thanks for reading, Until Next Time, Katie x

Another Little Update

Hi,I know I do these posts quite often, but I like to let you know what is happening with my blog and life etc. 

First of all, I reached 100 followers on bloglovin, which you can follow HERE, thank you so so much for that, it means a lot. I love knowing that people actually read and enjoy my blog. There is something that will be happening to celebrate this in a few weeks time, so just look forward to that. 

Secondly, my new blog design. So recently my amazing friend Dalal,  at Monochrome Dasies re-designed my blog (You need to check out her blog, she has incredible content and her photography is stunning). I think it looks much better than it did before, please let me know what you think of it.

I have a week left of exams, 3 more exams and then I will be done year 11, which is both exciting and daunting at the same time. Also prom is next week, so look forward to a post after that. 

Finally I was nominated by Sydney at Doe Eyed Dreams to do the Liebster Award thing, and since I have already done it, HERE, I thought I would just put it on the end of my post. 

1. What's the story behind your blog URL?  Well it' my name and that's it really haha.
2. How old were you when you started blogging? Technically 14 because I had a blog before this one, which I quit after like a month, but I was 15 when I started this one.
3. How many drafts do you have saved on your blogging platform right now? 6- I really need to finish writing them and publishing them.
4. What is your all time favorite blog? Hard question I would have to say either Lily Pebbles, or ViviannaDoesMakeup.
5. How many secret Pinterest boards do you have? None, I don't go on pinterest as much now, because I had to delete the app off my phone, but I really want to get into it again
6. What is your favorite guilty pleasure food? Chocolate, especially galaxy cookie crumble.
7. Are you right-handed or left-handed? Left handed, it's not fun when it comes to exams,my hands are often covered in ink.
8. If you could have a $1 million shopping spree in one store, what store would you choose? Debenhams, because you have everything there.
9. On a scale of 1 to 10, how much do you love Netflix? I don't have Netflix, but if I did it would probably be a 10, I watch too much TV.
10. What is your favorite color? Pink has always been my favourite colour for as long as I can remember, especially lighter pink shades.

I'm not going to tag anyone because I think most people I know have already done it, but if you haven't feel free to pretend that I tagged you to do this and send me the links.
I hope you enjoyed my little update, next week my exams will be over so my posts should be getting better and I will be able to post a lot more. 

Until Next Time, Katie x

Makeup Revolution Blush Palette Review

Hey, as you might have seen in my Makeup Revolution Haul, HERE, I bought the Blush Palette in Sugar and Spice, which you can buy HERE and I thought I would review it for you today.

So this Palette only cost £6 which is an amazing price considering you get 6 blushes and 2 highlights. That equals 75p each ( showing off some of my maths skills). I think that is incredible. I also think all of the shades are really wearable, and you can use them for so many different things. Makeup Revolution also have other Blush and Contour palettes, but I had heard a lot about this one so I thought I would buy it.

As you can see by the photos these blushes are extremely pigmented and have a good colour pay off, this makes them good for subtle blushes, by only picking up a small amount of product or more noticeable blush.

The first two shades are more bronzey compared to the rest of the shades and are perfect for the summer to give a more bronzed look. 
The third shade is more of a Barbie pink, but also can be toned down depending on how much product you pick up on your brush.
The 4th shade is definitely a highlight colour, which I haven't tried out yet, but it looks stunning.

The 1st shade here is more of a red toned blush, I think this would be really nice for the autumn.
The 2nd shade is more of a pinky toned red which is a really pretty everyday shade.
The 3rd shade is my absolute favourite out of them all, It is a perfect pinky coral shade for the spring and summer, and creates a really nice natural look.
The last shade is like a highlight and blush combined, I haven't tried it out, but I think it will look stunning.

Thanks for reading, I hope you have enjoyed this review. What are your favourite products from Makeup Revolution?

Until Next Time, Katie x
