finding the beauty in life

Harlequin, let's be honest when you think about that word you think about outlandish and often bizarre romances with extremely handsome men and women who are 

A. too beautiful 
B. about to go Cinderella on your ass half way through the book. 

Despite the often unrealistic qualities of these books I have to say harlequin novels are seriously one of my guilty pleasures. Don't ask me why I like these books so much,  and if you ask me how many I've read I will flat out lie, for fear that my admission would embarrass me for life, death of my reputation and all that . However, if your looking for a quick read where there's always a happy ending check out harlequin novels, although bizarre you won't be disappointed.

I often find it extremely hard to relax, anxiety overwhelms me and I start to panic with a million thoughts going through my head. So when I start feeling anxious I do two things. First, I light a Yankee Lavender candle, a comfort for me because it reminds me of my grandmother. The second thing I do is think of all the good times with my grandma and how much she understood and loved me. Whenever I can't relax these are the two steps that remind me I am loved, and that I can make it through any struggle, even if its just a small scale anxiety attack.

Before, I start this post let me say that I am completely biased when it comes to Rimmel becuase I have a serious bone to pick with them. Can someone please tell me why they have such a poor shade range when it comes to their foundations!! I own and love the Rimmel Stay Matte Primer but, for the life of me I do not understand why they don't any foundation shades for women of a darker complexion. Rimmel if you ever read this please step up your game, the world is a rainbow and right now your rainbow isnt as appealing as it should be.

Okay, so rant aside I have to say that this Rimmel Retro Glam Mascara is quite possibly the worst mascara I have ever tried! Your eye lashes are clumpy and just plain uncomfortable with this stuff on. The formula for me personally was just dry and gumpy ( i got a real way with words). The one saving grace for this product was that it only cost me $5 because it was on sale. Stay clear of this mascara ladies and gents, there is absolutely nothing glam about it.

Okay, so in the normal world I would never splurge on a $57 makeup palette but....someone out there is rewarding me for my occasional awesomeness because, I had the opportunity to get a LancĂ´me palette *swoon*. I got the 310 Luminous Violet palette and let me tell you this baby goes on like butter! Im no makeup artist but I had to take the opportunity to try this bad boy out! because let's face it who doesn't love butter ? There was a little fall out because the shadows were extremely soft but all in all this was a great palette. I even attempted to do a little makeup look! full posing included.

Lately, despite my great efforts I've been finding myself less and less motivated. I pretty much spend a great deal of time sleeping and just feeling down in general. The other day when I was feeling a little more happy and motivated i wrote the above words to remember that there will always be good times and bad times in this life. My greatest struggle however will be focusing on the good times instead of dwelling on the bad.
