Oh golly gosh, it's been a while hasn't it?

It's been ages. Yonks. TOO. LONG. (You are so pausing in your head.)

Yeah I've got a new video up about this fab website my mate jessica told me all about,



www.latestinbeauty.com

For those who can't be bothered watching one of my rubbish videos, latestinbeauty is a beauty products sample website, where you pay a pound and you get 3 samples of your choice.

I got a body lotion, moa cream and eye tuck gel.

You can also get foundations and such too but there was none left when I went.

Please do check it out it is a really worth while site, and I will see you when I have more time!

Lots of love,
Li-J xx

SO

Recently I did this cushion making video, whadayya think?



Old rant from months ago: 

Do you know anyone REALLY selfish? As in if they had to choose you over a new pair of shoes, they’d go for the shoes? Yeah. It ain’t pretty. The one thing that selfish people don’t realise is that one day, when they really need help, nobody will be there for them. Its a simple rule, do things for other people and they will return the favour! It isn’t complicated!
Karma is strange, it does happen all the time though, especially with me! For me it happens really quickly though, like if i told a lie one day the next It’d bite me in the but! For some people, it’ll take years. So if you’ve ever known someone to do some really bad things, karma will get them in time! Like my Mum says, everyone who shes ever known has been gotten back at by karma and have ended up having the opposite of their intentions.
It feels good knowing that people actually read these and relate, i felt extremely happy when people were commenting saying they loved it and it made them feel so much better about everything i am trying to write another rant like that again but it’s gone right out of me I don’t rant in my head like i used to so i need some bad stuff to happen so it comes back!
I’m not going to do the selfish thing and say nobody can copy my style but to those people who do, karma will get you anyway so I’ve already seen a few copies of a few things i’ve done but i’m not saying anything because i know that
people realise and the people who wrote them realise it hasn’t blown up as much because it’s been done now, nothing new there i’m purely doing this for my own happiness not so that people can judge it or copy from it or even tell me things like “It changed my life” cause those comments are great but knowing people know what messages im getting across is so much greater.
This is dedicated to Rachel Millar cause she’s seen a few selfish things recently and a bit of a message needed sent out due to that.
These rants are all to make you feel better for once, all the hate going around isn’t healthy and i know people just go ” oh well thats life” yeah well life is also very great so don’t be weighed down on all the terrible things when it’s obvious the good overrules them. I love who I am , I am perfect for me not perfect. Thats much better than being perfect and it’s not self-centered, its true and realisitc, a lot more realistic than people sayin they hate themselves because that’s also attention seeking, it isn’t worth it people will get bored someday! Just love yourself, its not self-centered because it’s not selfish. Everyone i know is worth loving themselves so do, you are so worth it.
That is my rant for today which came from a bit of a burst of enthusiasim at half 11 at night and all done on an ipod in the dark so sorry aboht the.reallt baf m Istakes.
PEACE!

P.S. Next video on cupcake nails!

Friday, 4 November 2011

Um.... So yeah. (I use those words too much!)

Um... so yeah. I've got a sore finger from typing my book too much so yeah kinda just as well my laptops broken for now. The nail was digging into the skin bleurghh! I triumphed wonderfully today, I actually beat MY DAD at grammar, during a debate on whether I should take part of the blame for my broken laptop or it's all my STUPID DOG'S fault! I wish he wasn't so cute, then maybe Mum would of been a little more annoyed at him at least! He just looked up at her with fake-puppy dog eyes and she was fine with him!
Um... so yeah. My fingers making me need to stop typing every now and again so sorry if I start talking about these wonderful amazing things and suddenly all you see is "Um... so yeah kinda just stepped out of my zone and i can't get back in."
Anyway, I was inspired by a picture on facebook today, i shared it so you might have seen it, it looked a little something like this.


I thought this was really cool and such a great idea, it'd be great in a school or workplace for when you're having a rainy day or somethings just not right. SO, i decided to make my own:)


 Um... so yeah. I figured, whats the point in being happy and smiley myself if I'm not sharing it with everybody else? There isn't one!
It's true, I have days where nothing goes right or people aren't being nice or I just can't get happy. Normally, I just say to myself "Chin up, if you are unhappy, be happier, you can't change whats going to happen so just try and live with it" Which is exactly what I had to say to myself earlier when I was in modern studies, at first I really DID NOT want to be the candidate for our group, so I was pretty upset when I was picked about a month ago (first time I had to say that) Then my friend was upset, she doesn't have many friends, so I took her out of class on her own and tried to make it better. Luckily, it worked and she was fine after about 5 minutes. After that I realised, I have to try and just get on with this. By then though, someone had seen I was upset and took my place. After this I still didn't get the job I really wanted and was the only one who worked hard for it, so I wasn't 100% happy yet.
THEN I thought, St Andrews doesn't accept people who don't just chin up and get on with things they don't want to do. So I texted the girl saying I'll be the candidate, if anything it'll be a bonus to my application.
And a week later, I was sitting at a table near her and I heard her talking about me blah blah blah... Shouting things at me, not sure what they were but by my other friends reactions they were enough to make her say something back which she usually doesn't do. Anyway, I did hear ONE thing. She said she was going to be the candidate. By then I'd already started brainstorming for the speech, I'd taken it really seriously and I was really set on unleashing my English skills on the rest of the class and become the winning party and have that on my St. A's app... So yeah, not really happy. (Second time i had to say that.)

Um... so yeah. Here I am, sitting in mod.st. last week of working on the presentations and guess what. We have a... not so well - written speech... Not so strong points... and guess what I'm looking at now.

Thats right. Not only did I not get to write the speech, but yeah I'm now the new candidate. Written in thick black pen by the woman of war herself. on the massive poster of smarties coming out a tube, the group "The Smarties" Was my idea and yeah no credit. This time, i had tears in my eyes. This was the absolute WORST POSSIBLE way this could have gone, here's me thinking it's impossible but no it actually happened.

1. I never go to write the speech
2. I still have to say it
3. I never got the actual job I wanted
4. I have to go in-front of the class and read out a poorly written speech, that everybody else thinks I've written.

Third time I had to say that. Um... so yeah. At first I thought of finding a way to get out of modern studies next week, it's bad enough that nobody I know ever appreciates the work I do, let alone instead of writing something really good and wow-ing everybody I actually have to pretend I've written a bad speech and say it. Then I thought, why was I saying "Chin-up" in the first place? Because I need to chin-up obviously! It's just a petty girl who hasn't matured enough yet to grasp this stuff, why get upset? A tiny bit of school-work I'll forget in five years time? Did it really matter if I'm slightly humiliated at 13 years old, and even assuming that'll happen when GOD knows what that girl will say next? Come to think of it, i don't think even god knows.
Anyway, facts are, I'm writing a book, i have friends who actually like me (I hope), I'm in the top classes and what does she have? None of those things. No point in getting upset over her, right?

Um... so yeah. I took a smile that period, metaphorically speaking. And I'm fine. In all honesty, theres no point in getting upset over things that are so soon to be the past. I only remember - what - 2, 3 big fall outs what have really effected my life? So really, there's going to be immature girls like her for another four years, I'm better off just ignoring them and doing my own thing and being with friends I actually like and can trust. I've always been the fastest developer, inside and out and i'm just going to have to chin-up and deal with it!

Something I wanted to get off my chest!

So as you probably already know, I've started doing youtube videos and to be honest, I didn't expect them to do too well but they're actually doing better than I thought! (Details about next vid in last post) The reason I started doing them was because I saw people like Lindy Tsang, Daniel Shim etc, people I look up to on youtube. It really warms my heart when I get a good comment or a new subscriber, honestly my heart actually feels warm! But people like Lindy actually inspire a lot of people, despite that they were always doing beauty vlogs or comedy vlogs, it was still inspiring and I've learnt a lot. I started these videos because I hope that one say I can inspire someone like me. I definetly mean someone like me, as a few years ago I was coming back from school crying every single day, because of these others girls and what they were doing to me. I had my entire yeargroup thinking I was a mean awful lier because of the things they said, and to be completely honest, in some ways, it's even worse now. But the difference is I never come home crying, I never cry at all actually. It's strange, I don't even feel sad. I cam to the conclusion that I've grown a thicker skin because of it, and it was Lindy Tsang herself that made me realise that they are in the wrong and that letting them get to me would do nothing for me.
She was bullied in her childhood as well, so hearing this and seeing how beautiful and sucessful she is now made me think I can do the exact same, and whenever I'm a bit lost I just watch her inspirational vlogs category vidoes, and by the end I'm ok again.
The reason I realised how thick a skin I'd grown was because another girl I new had gone home and stayed off school from humiliation by a few people about something, yet just before the holidays I heard for myself someone telling a big group of people in my class about something I did and I didn't feel anything from it, I just left it and didn't get hurt or sad at all.
At first I thought something was wrong with me, I even thought I had aspergers! But it turns out I've just gotten stronger. Well, so I think!
Today, I decided in the morning I'd note my whole day. The things that try to get me down, and the things that bring me up. Here's what I came up with:

Good:

  • Girl telling me she loved my art work that I hardly knew
  • Getting invited to a halloween party
  • Taking part in a secret santa
  • Not being the one sent out of my group in French to move seats
  • Being told by 20+ people that my necklace was cool:L (Pic at bottom)
  • A girl telling me she loved my hair
  • Finding out my art teacher's pregnant
  • Signing up for Music Champions event
  • R.E. 
  • Art

Bad:

  • Girl I was good friends giving other people presents that I don't particularily like!
  • Witnessing a girl tell others a lie about why she was sent out of class so they didn't judge her for what she actually did
  • Not talking to anyone all through science and being the only one listen
  • Listening to girl I know talk about me in music
  • Not talking to anyone through art
  • Listening to girl talk about girls in the class in art
  • Girl shouting "DOESNT MATTER" rudely at me, then turning to another girl and telling her what I was asking about.
  • Watching girl I used to be best friends with laughing and having a good time with another girl and then talking about me
  • Boy telling me my shoe was retarded, I told him his face was retarded
  • Blonde jokes
  • Girl I love to bits ignoring me
  • French teacher being herself. Which yes, is a bad thing for me.
So yeah that's my notes from today. If I have a particularly good/bad day I'll do it again, I suppose this was a good day for me really. Nothing was worse than usual, but things were better than usual. Yesterday was worse, but I won't list everything. Especially before the holidays when my best friend and I first started drifting and I think I counted 6 times in a week that I'd heard her talk about me, let alone when I hadn't heard her.  But it's all down to making the right friends, and thats what Lindy was getting at once, of course you are going to have a rough time if you make friends with people that aren't nice. Because, truth is, if your friend is talking about people to you, they are probably talking about you to other people.
I think a perfect friend is someone who you can trust with your life, someone who will put you first and will never fail to remember the little things, even stuff like getting you a little something when they go away to say "sorry I was gone". When you know that you can cry with them and they'll cry with you, I know in the past I've been upset and all it's done is made them happier somehow. A perfect friend won't call you a slut because you flirt with someone you really like, they won't judge you for the things you do that maybe aren't particularily cool or normal. I remember one of my friends a while ago making fun of me just because I was being friends with someone that was usually quiet and alone. I've even been made fun of for things like people I like or doing the right thing.The perfect friends are out there somewhere. They are hard to find, but luckily I have found them, so it's not impossible.
Just remember, if you feel like you've been searching forever and you can't find anyone, you are wrong because you've found me and I promise to try my best to be the perfect friend to whoever it is that really needs one.

PHEW, Feels good to get that out! Anyway, if you wanna hear more stuff like this check out my old blog, www.rantsforthought.wordpress.com

If you want me to do anything else like this on a subject you might be having trouble with then just message me:) Back to normality for tomorrows/later today's post:)

Here's the amazin' necklace I wore around school all day! (You might of seen it in my videos!)

My fave online shops + Next vid idea!

Hey guys, Li-j^-^ Next vid will probably be top 5 cheap makeup products and expensive versions then then I'll make one side of my face the expensive and one the cheap makeup etc etc... Anyway could be as late as Saturday till that comes up but will be soon!

ANYWAY, this post is about my top fave online shops, but I thought that'd be a little boring so it's 
Gonna be more about my favourite lesser known online shops.


1. www.yesstyle.com/en

 It's an Asian fashion store, so it's the best way to get the style before everyone else as most trends start off here!
Sweet and simple.


1. F-DNA, Long sleeve soop neck print tee, £13.00

2. OrangeBear, Embroidered striped cardigan £16.25

3. OrangeBear, Sleeveless Floral Ruffle dress £13.65

P.S. These things are all actually on my Christmas list!^-^










2. www.shopbubbi.com

As you know I am a massive fan of Lindy Tsang, otherwise known as Bubzbeauty! This is her online store with her own products, there aren't millions of products, and they can run out of stock sometimes but when it's there it's great!  

         
1. "I Miss You" Navy top, £15.99

2. "B-ball" blue top, £14.99

3. "iHeart you" White top, £14.99

4. "Smile" Yellow/Navy top, £15.99

P.S. Few of these on my christmas list too!


I also love the "YOU make ME smile" top, but I couldn't fit any more on! I lvoe them all really, I have about 5 on my Christmas list! 


I'll put a pic of the "bubbi" makeup brushes at the bottom!





3. www.chicksrule.co.uk

This truly is the coolest shop on the list, it's all David and Goliath clothing, and thanks to Lucy Clark, they one of my favourite brands!

4. www.cutejapanesefashion.com

This online store is full of cute clothes, sorta like Yesstyle,  but it's slightly different.
 

1. Thick Stripe Jumper, £15.99
2. Soft bear hoodie, £19.99

3. Full Skirt Evening dress £14.99

4. Heart Sweater, £12.99

 

The only thing I'll say about this website is that the sizes are quite small, the biggest size I found was a 12 so you may either have to pay extra to get a bigger size on some or try to squeeze into something smaller if you are 12+ !!
Nothing here on my christmas list, only just recently found this site otherwise that heart jumped would be at the very top!



5. www.forever21.com
This is probably the most well known site, it's elegant and young!
