Let's be friends:

Thursday, 2 June 2016



I (again) haven't posted in literally forever, but I guess I was just feeling very unmotivated to write and was out of decently-interesting ideas. However, I was tagged by the lovely eternalleigh.blogspot.com to do the Liebster award! I really like the idea of this tag, so thank you so much for tagging me and finally giving me the inspiration to write something X.


Honestly, I love cities, so basically any capital of a country would do! However, if I had to list an ideal  holiday destination for myself, I'd have to say Los Angeles. It's simply the perfect mix of city and beaches, which I personally think I'd really enjoy. Not gonna lie, I love the idea of being around so many celebrities as well, haha! Also, I absolutely adore Paris and London.

2. Would you rather go on a relaxing holiday or an adventure holiday?

Definitely on an adventure holiday! Personally, I really hate the idea of just lying around in the sun all day and not doing anything. It makes me feel very unproductive and I'd rather spend that time out and about. 

3. Is there a celebrity or anyone who inspires you?

Personally, I am inspired by many of my favourite YouTube/Social media celebrities, especially by Cameron Dallas, Matthew Espinosa, Hunter Rowland, Tana Mongeau, Weston Koury and The Gabbie Show. I'm also a big fan (love them or hate them!) of Kylie Jenner and Nicki Minaj. 

4. What's your favourite lipstick shade?
I feel extermely basic and unoriginal for saying this, but my favourite lipstick shade is Velvet Teddy by Mac!  Overall, I just really like darker-toned beige lipsticks, preferably matte. 

5. What's your ideal meal?

Sushi! Not much to say about it; I'm just completely addicted  with Sushi! I also love Mac and Cheese. Yep, I'm (again) very basic and unoriginal when it comes to food! 

6. Have you got any interesting talents?

I've never really had/discovered  a certain 'talent' of my own, so I'm not particularly sure how to answer this question. Umm... does being overly talkative and able to ramble on for hours and hours on end about random stuff count? Just kidding:) 

7. What's your favourite scent?

Perfume-wise, I'm slightly obsessed with the Victoria's Secret body sprays. My favourites are 'Pure Seduction' and 'Mango Temptation'.  Literal scent-wise, I happen to really like the smell of new books, haha. 

8. What did you want to be when you were younger?

When I was a little kid, I always wanted to be a Vet, but as a got slightly older I changed my mind. Currently I really want to become either an editor-in-chief of a high magazine, a film director, or even a personal assistant to a celebrity, when I 'grow up'. However, I literally change my mind about this every week, so I'm not 100 percent sure these aspirations will last a long time!

9. Have you got any plans for the summer?

Actually, yes I do! I'm finally going on holiday for 4 days to my dream destination, Los Angeles, as well as for 3 days to New York. I'm extremely excited, as I've wanted to visit both of these cities for years! It will also be the first time I have ever visited  the USA/ left the continent of Europe, which is rather interesting, haha. I also plan to hopefully start broadcasting on YouNow and (maybe) even attempt starting a YouTube channel. 

10. What's your favourite part about blogging?
I've only ever posted a few blog posts, so I don't exactly have a lot of 'blogging experience' but I guess I'd say receiving all the lovely comments and being able to talk about my interests and experiences on the internet! I think blogging is a great creative outlet and I really wish I was more consistent with it.

I tag YOU reading this to attempt doing this tag ( unless you don't want to of course!) and answer these questions also!

♡Top 5 Drugstore Beauty Products♡ // April (Collab)

Hey, long time no speak...

I haven't posted anything in ages (terrible, I know, but I was very busy!) , so I decided to get back into the swing of things with a beauty post. This is a collab with Lily Mae, another new blogger! Make sure to check out her blog :  allthingslilyblog.blogspot.com   . She's super sweet and nice and her blog is also extremley lovely!<3

♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ 

1. Real Techniques Expert Face brush

Okay, I've spoken about this brush before, but it's truly one of my favourite brushes and is useful for most face-related things. Definitely a must-buy if you're thinking of purchasing new brushes!

2. Maybelline Fit Me concealer 

I was going to put the Collection 'Lasting Perfection' concealer, but I feel like everyone always speaks about it, so I decided to include my 2nd favorite concealer: the Maybelline fit me. This product has a really great consistency and coverage, whilst also being rather inexspensive:)  (also I know I didn't include it in the photo, but I couldn't find the tube oops)

3. Real Techniques Beauty Blender Sponge

I used to have quite a bit of  trouble applying until I bought this beauty blender... I guess you could say that  it changed my life makeup- wise:)  My skin is rather oily and acne prone, but this product helps me to get a  very smooth and even base!

4.  Maybelline Lash-Sensational mascara

Although I didn't really like this mascara when I first purchased it, I ended up falling absolutely in love with it! It gives my lashes a lot of length and is great for layering.

5. Maybelline Brow Drama

This is seriously one of my favourite brow products, it simply works amazing! Quick mid-post brow tutorial: firstly I brush my eyebrows into place and fill them in. Afterwards I apply this to darken them and give them a nicer shape.. Also, if anyone was curious, I use the shade ' medium brown' :)

And so, we come to the end of this very-delayed blog post. I feel like my descriptions of the products were kinda awkward and not very informative, but I decided to give makeup-related posts a try.

New post coming soon (I actually mean it this time!)

New Beginnings

bloglovin:<a href="http://www.bloglovin.com/blog/14740271/?claim=j9x4q7zzy44">Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a>
Well.....hey. I'm brand new to blogging, so I'm not really sure how to start this off. I guess I'll introduce myself.

My name is Maya, and I'm a typical teenage girl living a typical teenage life...that sounded horribly cliche, but I don't really know how to put it any other way. I wake up, go to school,do (awfully boring) homework, eat food and then proceed to waste my life by spending hours on the internet . I've decided to start this blog so that I have a way to share my many thoughts and feelings with the world. Since this is my first ever blog post, I've decided to compile a list of (incredibly) random facts about me, so that anyone reading this can hopefully get to know me a little bit. In fact, shoutout to anyone who's reading this, although I doubt anyone is. As of now, I'm pretty much a tiny, irrelevant fish in a huge pond full of successful bloggers. 

Anyway, my introduction is starting to become a little too long, so lets just get on with the facts!

1. Fashion and writing are two of my favourite things. Therefore, my dream is to become the editor-in-chief of either Vogue, Elle  or any other popular fashion/beauty/lifestyle magazine. Basically, in the future I want to have a career like Anna Wintour. That would be fantastic.

2. I've lived in England my whole life and I've only ever visited three places abroad: Poland (where I go e
very year to see  family!), Paris and Spain.  Also,I've been to Wales twice, but I'm not sure if that counts as 'abroad'. However, I've become determined to travel more and decided that I really want to see more of the world. As a result, my mum and I have decided to go on a tour of the USA in the summer holidays, which I'm incredibly excited for! Although I haven't visited them (yet!), my  dream future home is either LA or New York:)

3.  I'm a huge fan of YouTube, and have been since about 2012. Some of my favourite YouTubers are: Tana Mongeau, Channon Rose, Brittany Lee Saunders, danisnotonfire and AmazingPhil. I actually plan to start my own YouTube channel sometime soon, as its been something I've wanted to do for about 3 years. However, I'm extremley camera-shy, so before I can get anywhere with YouTube, I need to sort that out!

4. I'd describe myself as someone who can be quite shy at first, but once they feel comfortable are very chatty and loud. Honestly, I wish I could shut up, as talking is always getting me into trouble. Furthermore, I'm incredibly disorganised and am practically late for every commitment ever, but I'm trying  at the moment to work on it!

So, hey... that was my first ever post.  It feels quite strange, but reassuring to say that. Except a lot more on fashion, lifestyle, beauty, music and just generally what's on my mind.  

Anyway, I gotta get going as its 12am and I have to wake up early for school tomorrow ( and to do my Latin homework because I'm a lazy twat who spent her whole entire weekend procrastinating)
