Favourites Of The Nail Polish Variety

Image
Hello internet friends!

I decided to share my current favourite nail polishes, so here is my first review! I shall try my best and if you have any suggestions please leave a comment below!
Let’s get into it!

I’ll start by telling you what I’m currently wearing. I work in a takeaway store, so if I do have nail polish on it is usually a nude colour because technically I’m not supposed to wear any. So the colour I’m wearing on my fingernails at the moment is the Rimmel London Pro in 365 Beige Style. First of all, I’ll admit that they could have been more creative with the name. On the other hand, I adore Rimmel nail polishes. It is a drugstore product so it won’t blow your beauty budget and it is so easy to apply. The brushes are flat, so as you apply it, the brush fans out to the shape of your nail - easy! So especially for those of you who are a bit messy and too uncoordinated to apply nail polish like myself, I highly recommend Rimmel. 


In keeping with Rimmel nail polishes, I am also lov…

I went to Thailand in January 2013 with a christian aid agency called Compassion to learn more about their work in Thailand and to meet our church partner in Ban Piang Luang - which is very high in the mountains, close to the Myanmar border. I had the privilege of meeting many families, churches and Compassion staff, learning more about their struggles and their joys. I learn a lot about God and I saw and heard many miracles and many other things that broke my heart. 
At the start of this year as I was sitting in a tutorial at university (I study a Bachelor of Occupational Therapy) and one question the lecturer raised was, "As an OT working in a slum, what might you be able to do to optimise a child's occupations and participation? Who would you talk to?" To answer this she said that she would involve engineers to fix the smoke problem and governments to give them housing. But I don't think the answer is that simple... After my experiences in Thailand, my first though…

How to be a Professional Procrastinator

I mentioned in my first blog post that I am the queen of procrastination, so with all of my exams finally finished today, I thought I would share 20 tips on how to procrastinate.

1. Clean your room...the bathroom...the kitchen...you get the idea
2. Re-organise everything on your desk while telling yourself that you can't possibly do any study or assignments before everything is in its exact spot. 
3. Experiment with make-up
4. Try new hairstyles
5. Play with your cat
6. Paint your nails
7. Redo your nails because you decided you liked how they were before
8. Scroll through every social media account you have
9. Dance and sing
10. Read a book
11. Bake scrumptious treats to be your 'study snacks' (but who am I kidding, you're not going to study while eating those) 
12. Get sucked into the black hole of YouTube
13. Make puns about your exam content (a favourite pastime for the students in my cohort)
14. Daydream about what you're going to do in your holidays
15. Count down the hours…

My First Time

Hello internet friends! Continuing on from yesterday’s blog post, I thought I would share some of my ‘firsts’ with you. This is also inspired by the beautiful Sprinkle of Glitter - Louise’s YouTube channel who started the My First Time Tag, so go check her out! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NZGOL038QhM:)
My First Kiss To be honest, I’ve never actually been kissed. There have been some strange almost-kiss encounters though...  One of these stories involves drama class, a boy and a cupboard...you probably know where this is going. In a drama class in grade 12, we were playing a game where the person in the middle had to think of something that someone may have done or their opinion on something. If you agreed, you had to stand up from your chair and race to get someone else’s chair, and the person left in the middle without a chair has to think of the next statement. Well it so happened that someone asked who had never been kissed...so I get up along with two other girls. Talk about awkward…

First Things First

Hello wonderful internet friends!
My first blog post...well here we go! I'm making this up as I go along, so bear with me!

I was reminiscing about my old blog (which I've now conveniently forgotten the password to) and decided to read the 5 posts that I made when I was 16. It's http://www.brainstorm-chozzy.blogspot.com if you feel like having a laugh. Ah the good old school days... Anyway, it made me realise how much I miss writing and sharing my feelings and opinions with others - even if that just ends up being my future self procrastinating study by reminiscing about my old blog posts. That being said, hello future Holly! Hope your life is going splendidly - is that even a word? I hope so, it sounds cute...
Where was I? 
Oh yes...
Well I'll get this blog up and running by telling you a few little things about myself and pray that it's not too boring!

1. I think I have a serious addiction to YouTube (honestly, there should be a 'YouTuber's Anonymous' club)
2…
