Today marks my tenth week of working in the real world so I thought I’d celebrate double digits by posting a ‘what’s in my bag’ post. I did one of these a few weeks ago when I went to Disney and it was pretty fun to do (in a sad sorta way). So I thought hey ho, let’s do another one.. but this time full of useful stuff I take with me to work on a daily basis.
One of the things that got me into this whole bloggerverse was reading about the ways other people organised their make-up. It may sound like such a tedious topic but I used to spend hours on end scrolling through other people’s blogs, reading about their storage and their collections. I guess it was because I should have been studying for my degree so anything seemed more interesting than reading about corporate manslaughter or unilateral contracts. Make-up organisation is definitely my guilty pleasure.
And now that I’ve finally got to a place where I’m content with how I’ve organised my make-up, I thought that I’d contribute to the bloggerverse’s never-ending collection of make-up organisation posts.
I’ve seen these types of posts flying around the bloggerverse for quite a while now and been meaning to do one for just as long. In essence, it’s like a game or a challenge and you can do it with anything. I’ve seen it done with listing blog post ideas, baby names and places to visit. I guess in some cases it can be helpful – putting yourself under a timed pressure can maximise productivity. So I thought I’d make it fun and bring out the British in me by writing down everything (well, limiting it to 100 things) that annoys me. Everyone knows the British love to complain.
It seems like everyone who blogs, vlogs and everyone who vlogs, blogs. Yet here I am, the exception with only a blog and no vlog. (I’ve said -log words too much that it’s starting to look funny as I type it..) And I thought it was about time that I sat and explained why I don’t vlog and probably never will.
Music has always been such a huge part of my life. I grew up listening to some amazing artists courtesy of my parents (as much as it pains me to admit it, they really do know good music). I don’t think I can go an entire day without listening to music, even just one song. And to say it’s such a big part of me, I’ve never really posted about it here on my blog so I thought I’d do a little ‘music’ tag to let you guys know what my music habits are!
There’s one task that takes stamina. It takes diligence. It takes determination. And it takes courage. It isn’t for the faint hearted and it certainly isn’t for the weak. You got it. It’s cleaning make-up brushes *shudders*. It’s one of those tasks that every make-up enthusiast hates. Well, at least I do. But sadly, it has to be done – unless you don’t care about bacteria or can afford to buy new make up brushes regularly.
Ever since I was about sixteen, I’ve had trouble sleeping. A sleeping pattern to me is being exhausted all day then wide awake all night. Every single Christmas I’m asking Santa for a reasonable bedtime – you know, a bedtime where I fall asleep at, not just a bedtime to crawl into bed and stare at the ceiling for hours until the sun comes up. And I know I’m not the only one with this problem. So I thought I’d compile a few tips and tricks I’ve learnt over the years to help me sleep.
