What If I Can Do It?

I have recently found a lot of people are negative when it comes to what they can achieve in life. Now I will agree that todays society doesn’t make it easy to achieve your absolute main goals in life; but does that mean we should give up all together? On all our dreams and hopes? A fair amount of people I know always say “ Oh I’ll never be able to become that”, “That’s too hard”, “People are better than me at my dream profession”, “Someone else will get it, I might as well not even try” and it is so ridiculous. When did the world become a place where people basically gave up their career because It’s too hard?! For example, when people call ONCE to ask for a job and the manger says “No, there are no positions available at this time” and they go “Oh okay, well thats done then, I can’t get a job”. Like that’s great they called and semi-tried, but why don’t they call again (after a few weeks) and see if anything has come up? The person who calls three times is going to stand out a lot more then the person who called once and might even get a job just on their pure determination to work at the certain job. If you put OOMF in everything you do, you’re going to get to amazing places. Believing in yourself and trying again and again for something that you want is determination at its finest and should occur more in everyones day to day life. Now, I, Myself have self-doubted many many times in my life but I have now realised you can’t live your life like that. 

Anxiety In Striving:

Now maybe some of you reading this have suffered with something more intense that causes self-doubt, like anxiety. I 100% understand what it is like to suffer with such things. And I know when anxiety is part of your life, leaving the house can be a chore and the thought of going and working around other people and trying to strive to fulfil you life dream is your worst nightmare- I get it. But I think the best thing to do is literally sit yourself down and make a choice; Do you want to live the rest of your life in this funk of not trying for anything? OR, Change your mind set and move out of your comfort zone and start trying for something you really want? I think making that choice and taking a chance to strive will be the best decision you’ve ever made. 

All I want to say is that I think it is important to really try in life. So many people nowadays give up after one knock… and that’s really bad. People have to have the determination to continue trying so they can strive!

Hope you all enjoyed todays post. I really enjoy doing deeper and more meaningful posts for you guys. I think it is a great outlet, to write about what I feel.

Talks Soon Guys

Liebster Award Tag!

Hey Guys!

Recently I was tagged by Simytoe to do the Liebster Award Tag! So basically Simytoe wrote 11 questions that I have to answer, then I write another 11 and tag some other blogs. I am super excited to do this Tag! Thankyou so much (again) to Simytoe for tagging me! And make sure you go check out her fantastic blog!!

 

Rules: You must link the persons blog who nominated you for the award. Answer the 11 questions given by the person who nominated you. Pick an additional 11 people to nominate with UNDER 200 blog followers. You cannot nominate the blogger who nominated you. You must inform the nominees they have been nominated.

 

Simytoe Questions!

1.What’s one thing that’s coming up within the next few weeks that you’re really excited about?

Seeing all of my friends again after being on holiday, away from them for almost 8 weeks!! I am super excited to be able to chat to them in person again!

 2. What’s the last book that you read and what did you think of it?

The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. OMG don’t even, the emotions in the book were crazy. But I absolutely adored the book and can’t wait for the movie to come out!

3. Favourite time of the day?

It’s either really early in the morning before any of my family wakes up ( like 4-5am) or at night around 8-9pm, because that is like my relaxing time after a day at school. And both these times are when I can chill and re group my emotions.

4. What’s the most money you’ve ever spent on a beauty/makeup/skincare product?

Err.. I actually don’t know! I’m like a drugstore product loving Queen! But I think it would probably be “Silk Oil Of Morocco Hair and Skin Treatment”. Now I will admit my Mum brought this for me, but it is the most expensive beauty/makeup/skincare products I own. But I do swear by it if you have frizzy hair! I think it is good if you invest in something that really works!

5. Name three positive words that you think describe you.

Happy, Crazy (in a good way), Supportive.

6. Which do you prefer: reading magazines or watching tv?

Magazines because that is where I get most of my fashion inspiration. TV is just a pass time when i’m bored or need to catch up on my Teen Wolf or PLL!

7. What do you find is the most challenging thing about blogging?

Definitely (when I am in school), keeping up posts. With Homework, Exams and Assignments plus after school commitments. I sometimes find it hard to find time to sit down and type for an hour or so. 

8. If someone were to give you a $1000 gift card to any store, which store would you want it to be?

Probably Mecca Maxima or Topshop. Because I love those stores to death, but sometimes their stuff is a bit expensive, so I would use the gift card for my purchases. 

9. Name five people who inspired you a lot in 2013.

Umm.. thats a hard one, let me think…

Fashion Inspo: Kylie Jenner

Life Inspo: Zoella on Youtube (Check out her Panic Attacks video if you or a person you know suffers)

Makeup Inspiration: Lauren Conrad

And I’m gonna cheat and take the last two and give them to my friends. All my friends have been massive inspirations to me during last year. And have inspired me to get through the bad times to get to the good times.

10. What’s your favourite thing about winter?

Jumpers, Gloves, Beanies, Scarves, Blankets, My Bed, Hot Chocolate, Soup, Coats, Hot Baths and Showers. Shall I go on?…

11. What’s the best piece of beauty advice that you’ve ever gotten?

Definitely “More Is Less” with makeup application. When you cake makeup on it is honestlyvery noticeable and doesn’t look real. I think Less makeup really makes your face look much better and brings out your natural beauty and shows off your natural features. Where as pilling on a truck load of cakey makeup covers everything that should be shown and noticed.

 

So that is all Simytoe’s questions answered, now for my nominees! I am going to tag

Beach Essentials!

Hello Everybody! Today I am going to be talking about my Beach Essentials! Recently I have been spending a lot of time at the beach due to it being Summer here in Australia. So today (with the help of my bestie Mahlee) I am going to talk about my beach essentials! Let’s begin! 

 My first essential is a beach bag! Now this is a must because you need somewhere to store all of your beach essentials. I always take massive beach bags to the beach because I love having the room to take all the stuff I want. This picture is an example of a beach bag you can take. It is super oversized that you can easily fit everything in.

Image 

My next essential is a towel. A towel has two uses at the beach and that is to lay on it and to dry yourself off after going for a swim- so it is important to have a thick and durable towel. I just roll my towel up in my beach bag until it is needed on the beach. I use this thick Espirt one because it is really thick and nice to take to the beach. 

Image

 My third essential is sunscreen. Now this is super important at the beach because it protects you from getting burnt which is so important- especially where I live. I always use a 30+ sunscreen at the beach because it protects my extremely fair skin from getting burnt.

Image 

Next we have the obvious essential at the beach and they are togs. Whether you wear a bikini or a one piece; togs are a must at the beach and remember if you don’t feel 100% wearing togs at the beach, you can always chuck on a pair of board shorts for a bit more modesty. At this moment I wear one pieces because that is what I feel more comfortable in especially at the beach- but what ever you feel more comfortable in,you wear! 

Image 

 The next essential are sunglasses! Sunglasses are a must at the beach to block glare and protect your eyes (they are also are super cute accessory!). My “Club Master” sunglasses I have below are from Cotton On and my Circle ones are from Mascotte. Make sure you wear a good quality pair of sunglasses so your eyes don’t get damaged! 

 Image

 Now we have that all important reading material. I like to take magazines (Like Shop or Dolly) down to the beach or a good book like, Looking For Alaska by John Green. Once I have finished swimming at the beach I like to lay on my towel and read a good book or magazine- I find it super relaxing. If reading isn’t your thing, you can take your Phone or iPad and play on it and listen to some music. 

Image 

I hope you all enjoyed my Beach Essentials post today! I hope you all had a great Christmas and have a great New Year! I am so grateful and thankful to you guys for your help with my blog this year. Achieving now 600 views ( when I expected like 10) is truly amazing, so thank you all so much!

 

Talk Soon!

 

Love

Jess
