Everyday Quarantine Makeup…

I’ve worn makeup about 4 times in the last 6 weeks which is very unlike me but when I do wear some I like to wear something very minimal but still makes me feel better on my low days. The last few weeks in lockdown hasn’t been easy. I lost my job and this lockdown has really affected me and thousands of others I am sure job wise and I’m still coming to terms with it.

Quick and easy way to wash your makeup brushes!

Washing makeup brushes is without doubt one of those things that all of us hate doing. I always put it off for so long and I really need to get better at it but I recently found a great way of cleaning your brushes I would like to share.

WHAT YOU NEED

  • A kitchen sieve
  • Soap or shampoo (I use either or depends on my mood)

METHOD

  • Fill your sink with warm water
  • In a little ramekin put some soap or shampoo or more soap in it
  • Dip your brush into the water and then dip your makeup brush in the soap or shampoo and then swirl it around in the sieve washing off the excess suds if you need to
  • BOOM clean brushes!!

This is a great hack if you don’t have those brush cleaning mats from online and it works really well!! Let me know if you try it out and let me know down below if you have any cleaning hacks.

What to do in Tokyo (must sees).

Hi, it’s been so long since I posted here and I don’t know why. But I got a new job and I travelled a lot last year. I went to Tokyo, Hong Kong and the Philippines in June 2018. I even got to see Singapore for a night because we missed our connecting flight to Manila 🙈

In this post I wanted to share some of my experience in Tokyo, Japan. First off, it’s one of the best cities in the world and I cannot wait to get the chance to go back there again. It was incredible, so fast paced and a world away from my small city limerick here in Ireland. Everything was amazing and the people were so nice and helpful. We stayed in the Minato area it was very easy to get around from there once we figured out the underground 😊

On our first day there we got there around 1pm but we were very tired and we flew from Manila which was a 4 hour flight so we were up around 12 hours at this point because we got a bus from Dagupan to Manila which was looong. So we ended up napping when we got there 😴When we woke up we freshened up and first stop was after some delicious food was:

Tokyo Tower, a communications and observation tower in the Minato area. It kind of looks like the Eiffel Tower and it’s amazing. It’s so big and when it lights up at night it’s incredible. Leading up to the tower is a beautiful park with a temple (this was closed as it was night time) and loads of trees, you forget you’re in a very busy city. Under the tower there is a museum and shops and a restaurant outside too. There was also a vending machine where you could buy waffles they looked good but very sweet 😂

I lost my passion…

Hello it’s been awhile, a year to be exact. I’m sorry. I have sat down to write this post for some months now and just haven’t been able to. I didn’t know what to say, I didn’t know what to even talk about because I had lost my passion for writing somewhere along the way and I just couldn’t do it anymore. I know it’s easy for people to say ‘oh it’s only writing’ but for me it’s what I have wanted to do since I was little, the thought of being a writer made me burst with excitement, so how do I lose that? I think I started to lose it when I failed a module in my final year of college meaning I couldn’t graduate on time or with my class. That hit me hard. Although it was only a small bump in the road it still made me feel useless, like my work wasn’t good enough. I’m slowly finding my passion again and I couldn’t be happier, because while the last year has been bad on my writing and my blog it has also been one of the best year’s of my life all because of one person. I hate being the soft, mushy person that brags about their boyfriend but this is one of those times I’ll allow it. He is so supportive of my blog and my writing that he is the one who has made me believe in myself again and get my mojo back. I am a very lucky girl, he’s definitely a keeper. But, besides just him it’s a been a big year career wise I got promoted in work, eventually graduated in January this year and I got to travel a little and finally see New York and go back to London one my most favourite cities in the whole world.

So what are the plans for now? Well come June I will be travelling Asia! I am going to Japan, Hong Kong and the Philippines where my boyfriend is from and I couldn’t be more excited. A little scared for the injections before I go and the fact I’ve to take malaria tablets and the side effects but it will all be worth the experience. EEEK!!! So I plan on not only blogging about my trip but vlogging a bit of it too, my boyfriend has a go pro and what better time to use it and capture the amazing memories. I hope I tan though because I’m probably one of the whitest people on the planet and being Irish doesn’t help, it may take awhile to tan but I think I’ll get there. Until then my next few posts will be about how I’m prepping for my holiday ie, my clothes, injections and stuff like that but also getting back into fashion and makeup my other two favourite things!

I’ll put some images below of my last 12 months so you can get a snippet of it and I hope you’ll stay tuned for the next post!

Xo, Kellie.
