Hey Guyss

So I don’t know if its just me BUT I get terrible January blues, every year, same time and apparently today is Blue Monday a day that the media have decided to let us know its ok to be depressed on! ermmm NO how far is that going to get us if we actually say oh no don’t worry guys its Blue Monday, you are allowed to be down today! Like seriously what the F!

SO

I was determined this year to NOT let this happen! its so stupid its just another day in another month so why do we get like this?! I think for me its just because like its another year passed where you most likely haven’t done everything you set out to do and its a time of reflection of your past year, so if you had hoped to achieve more than you did, then you are probably going to get a tad down in the dumps about it!

I do think its a good idea to look at your past year but this time I have tried to focus only on the things I HAVE done and my goals I HAVE achieved, this has definitely helped me a lil bit.  I am not going to lie to you and say I haven’t had a few down days this month so far but no where near as bad as usual! I have been trying to focus on this year coming and what I want to do! I bought myself a cool new diary (see pic below)

How cool is this customised diary though! I want to be more organised and I think if you have cute things like this it makes you want to write in it! like when you buy new gym gear makes you go to the gym more, even if its only to walk around the gym showing off your new kicks, you still made it to the gym and that my friends is a step in the right direction!

Anyway so to keep me busy and take inspiration from my January blues in a positive way I have made it in to a make up look! haha

Here I have used myVice 3 palette I got for christmas by Urban Decay – it has some AMAZING shadows in it but this matte navy blue caught my eye so the look started with this colour! Paired with some new Lashes by HUDABEAUTY which i also got for Christmas!
