Happy To Be Apart Of The Blogging Community

I was sat joining in with a Blogging chat on Twitter when I decided that I wanted to write a post. I was speaking to loads of other bloggers about different topics and I had never met a single one of them. It got me thinking...I just absolutely love being apart of this online community! 

The blogging community is something that I have never experienced before, it's so unique and I love the online world that it has created. When I first started blogging I never quite relaised what I was joining and I never knew how many people I would connect with. I just adore that you can come online to share your posts, and I know I will always get so much support from other bloggers out there. Putting your thoughts and passions online is a really scary thing, so the fact that there are so many brilliant people out there who want to support you no matter what is incredible. Even though the majority of these people will have never met before, that makes no difference for bloggers and I just love that! 

One of my favourite things about this community is Twitter. I know that if I have a question, so many people will take the time the help me out or give me advice. If I'm feeling down one day I can just log on and speak to so many wonderful girls about anything at all, not just blogging, and it will make my day. I'm also a huge fan of Blogger Chats. I'm not going to lie, I didn't really know what they were at first but now I'm hooked. There are so many different accounts that hold these chats! A different blogger will host the chat each time and choose what topic they want to talk about. At a certain time loads of bloggers will come to Twitter to join in on the chat with so many other people answering questions and discussing different topics! It's crazy! I have actually hosted a chat before and it was amazing. I couldn't believe how many people joined in to so support me and it was such an incredible experience. 

Without a lot of my blogger gals on Twitter, I wouldn't have half as much of the support that I get on my blog. I know that if I tweet a new blog post on Twitter, there are so many people from this community who will read it, like it and support it. I will do exactly the same! I find so many great blogs and posts on Twitter that I would have never have found otherwise. There are so many bloggers out there and Twitter or any other social media really is a great way to find new ones. Even though the blogging community is HUGE now, that doesn't bother me at all. I just love that it is growing more and more everyday and that the majority of us are spreading positivity and support. 

Being in this community has helped me through so much and made me a happier person. I have spoke to some amazing people online that I know I will support for a very long time! I have found some amazing new blogs to follow and seeing everyone's amazing work has only pushed me on with my blog! I will always feel inspired being in this community and I am so happy that I'm finally in a place where I can feel confident with my blog. I'm not afraid to post certain things anymore and I'm happy to admit how much I love blogging. 

I just felt like writing a post all about the blogging community today because I know we can often get caught up in focusing on the press, or whoever it may be, being negative about bloggers! But I know that there are so many bloggers out there who support each other and praise each other for their achievements. If we carry on with that attitude and continue to grow, we'll be stronger than ever!

The Lip Products That Need A Post Of Their Own!

Today I wanted to create a post all about some specific lipsticks that I can't get enough off. You will probably all know that I'm a massive fan of Tanya Burr Cosmetics but the lip products in particular are to die for!

Let's start off with the packaging, how beautiful? I really love the gold as it makes it look so much more expensive and feels like a luxurious product. The style of writing is super elegant and classy and I just love that! I personally think that the lipsticks are a really good size. They fit in your handbag perfectly and they also fit like a glove in my lipstick storage! The liquid lipsticks are just as glamorous! They have the same square shape as the others and I love the simplicity of the packaging. You can see the shade of the product so clearly and the product is so lightweight. I think that Tanya has nailed the packaging for these products and it will defiantly persuade so many people to pick them up. 

I have to talk about the formula of these products! I can remember the first time that I ever used these lip products and I was so amazed by the pigmentation and formula. To say these are affordable drugstore products, it's just unreal! They feel like high end products and these lipsticks are a lot more pigmented than some of my more expensive products! I would defiantly put it out there and say that these are the most pigmented lip products I own! The formula is so lovely as it feels comfortable to wear. I know that some matte products can be a nightmare and make your lips feel like a dessert, but trust me when I say these do the exact opposite. Lightweight, moisturising and long lasting, what more can a girl want from a lipstick?

I have four of the lipsticks and I know that I do need to pick up the other two at some point to complete my collection. I'll give you a very quick run down of the shades! Wild Safari is the most beautiful orange you will ever see and this product has come travelling with me for sure! The perfect summer shade. Central Park is a bright pink that works with any skin tone. I personally think it's that perfect pink shade as it's not too light and not too dark! A great pop of colour to any makeup look. Big Kiss is a red shade which everyone has fallen in love with. I don't know how she's done it but she has created my perfect red and I love it! Finally there is Pink Cocoa and this is one of the most popular ones! It's an everyday nude that will go with anything! I love having this in my handbag and I know that I can reach for it anytime and it will just work!

I have all three of the liquid lipsticks and I just adore them. I was so happy when she brought these products out and I still love them just as much now! We have Puppy Paws, Rhubarb & Custard and Martha Moo. All three shades are pink toned but all very different. Martha Moo is more of a neutral shade that everyone wants to get there hands on! I love all three shades and think they work well with my skin tone. I love that they are all different as I know that I can reach for any of the three when I'm doing my makeup. Once you buy one, trust'll want to complete your collection with the other two! 

I know that I have spoke about Tanya Burr Cosmetics before on my blog but I did just want to create a whole post today on the lip products as I can't believe the quality of them and I love them more and more everyday. I use them all the time and would be happy with using just these for the rest of my life! I really advise you to check any of the products out if you haven't already! If you already have some of them, complete your collection, it's only right! I will defiantly be buying the missing two for sure!

Current Music Obsessions!

For today's post I am going to be talking you through my current music obsessions! I don't think that I've ever done a post like this before and I have loved reading music posts as I'm always wanting someone new to listen to. I do often quite get bored of listening to the same stuff all the time so hopefully some of you will find this post useful. If you do have any recommendations of artists, albums or anything music related...let me know in the comments or on social media. I'm just going to tell you about a few artists that I have been loving recently, I won't ramble on too much though! Some of them you may not of heard of before and some of them I'm sure most of you will have!


Sia is an artist that I have heard of for a while but I would only listen to the songs that were on the radio or in the charts. After she released Cheap Thrills...I bascially fell in love! I was so obsessed with that song so I thought that I would listen to some more of her songs to see what they were like. Let's just say that I have found one of my favourite artists and I love every song that I listen to! She has got such a powerful voice and her songs are insane! Her songs fit my music taste perfectly and I'm a big fan. Some of my favourites in particular are Angel By The Wings, Helium and Unstoppable.
