Being Body Confident

I absolutely love this lady and her youtube chanel sprinkleofglitter. She is an insperation to me.

This video in particular is my favourite because I am a very self-conciouse girl and it has been bothering me for a very long time, so I decided to watch this video again.

Louise has given me an idea to help me boost my self esteem, the fact is that I have been insulted plenty and instead of the compliments I've been given going round my head the insults do. So I have decided that when ever I get a compliment I will write it on a piece of paper using large brightly coloured lettering and stick it up on my wall so that I can 'cherish' them- as Louise puts it- and it will be easier to remember them and therefor easier to block out the insults not only said by other people but said by myself everytime I examine myself in a mirror.

After such a long time trying to figure out how not to be so down about myself sometimes I think I have finally figured it out.

I hope this helps you too, I've noticed that so many people have been reading my blog and I am so happy that I get to share abit of myself to all of you, and maby help you because as I think I've said in a blog before this I love helping people.

When ever I look back at photo's taken of me I always seem to think wow what was my foundation routine because it looks so good, and I never seem to remember which tends to get anoying.
So I have decided that when ever I have a new foundation routine even if I think its not my best I will from now on secretly take a selfie using the webcam on my computer and record my foundation routine.
I might even put the photo and recording on this blog.
This is a good thing for me to do now because Im definatly not sticking to the foundation routine I wear at the moment, I'm one of those girls who has to go through thousands of products before sticking to one. It was this way with my 'face wash' routine (cleanse, wash, tone, moisturise) but I now have found my favourite that works perfectly for me and I do keep repurchasing - I hope the same will be the case with my foundation routine

And my favourite facail products is African Extracts- Rooibos- Purifying the 'blue'

I'm fairly new at blogging so if anyone would like to give a few tips feel free to.
I haven't decided yet what to blog about specificaly but we'll see what happens in the future but in this post I'll talk a little bit more about me.

Two days ago I met a lovely women and we started talking, she asked me what my hobbies are, not what I enjoy doing in general or what my interests are but a specific hobby such as coin collection or bike riding etc. I've never had a specific hobby and if she had asked me months earlier I wouldn't have been able to answer, but lately I find myself taking care of kids alot when I have the chance, there's a farm not far from where my mother works that is not very fortunate and they have sponsers that have helped builed a creche where I spend my time with the tiny children, I love these little kiddies and love playing, sometimes feeding and helping them with their alphabet and colouring in.
So I believe that I finally have a hobby.

I think having a hobby could be important, it sort of defines you and you'd never get bored <3

If you are a sweet thirteen to fourteen year old girl who's trying to figure out how to wear foundation right, its really simple:

Foundation Routine

Do your usual wash tone moisturise, and twice a week exfoliate, which is extremely improtant for wearing foundation

Prime. You're probably not too sure what this is, priming can be as simple as using moisturiser but if you're seriouse about this grab a green looking product from the make up section and it will most probably say 'primer' or 'complextion perfector' on the container.

Foundation or tinted moisturiser. Now because of your age you may want to shy away from foundation because your skin is prone to acne and blackheads. If you're afraid of using a tinted moisturiser that isnt exactly your skin colour, you should be. Make sure you ask a female helper who works at the make up section to help you choose the correct colour. Its her job. She will most likely use a tester on your skin.

Translucent powder. This is just loose white powder, this is a life saver for oily skin, you apply this over your foundation where its there's a little shine. This product can also aid with 'ties', a tie is the line where your base looks completely different from your actual skin, usualy your neck.

and I think I left out only the most important part of your foundation routine - concealer, you apply this either before or after applying foundation on specific problem areas.
Be sure that your concealer matches the colour of your skin or foundation and DO NOT use concealer as a foundation, meaning it does not belong all over your face.

Chit Chat

Hello there, this will just be a little bit of a chit chat because I haven't blogged in a while. I'v decided to use a little font for abit of fun, it looks abit like a news papers font which makes it look important, but it isn't.
I decided to go ahead and buy myself a cheaper drug store foundation because it looked promising and I had lost my Elizabeth Arden foundation whilst at a male friends farm, the foundation I purchase is Rimmel London 25 hr lasting finish.
I'v had this foundation for about a week, that is in total seven days that I have worn it because I do wear base nearly everyday yet I still can't figure it out!
With Elizabeth Ardens I hardly needed a primer or technique, some days I needed some translusent powder for the shine but that is it, this foundation requires a primer and it doesnt seem to be working. I have to worry about streeks, flakes, caking and etc, It might be my skin type that is the cause. How frustrating.

These school holiday's have been extremely helpful on my stress levels, now I understand that we are young and we shouldn't really become stressed because apparantely we live a 'care free life' and have little to no resposibilities. Well that is not true, how can we not have a little anxiety when our future depends on who we are and what we do today, my future depends on me to have a successful high school career otherwise my plans will fail. School and studies are not easy either.
