A Change is Gonna Come...!

I'm currently trying to switch it up here on Georgia's Make Up Addiction. I've had this blog up for over 3 years now and I'm still not happy with it. Most of my frustrations come with the visual side of things, because I can't always successfully execute my own creative ideas. Therefore I'm trying to work on my design and photography skills, so please bear with me while I bring my content up to a higher quality that I can be proud of.

Also, I've (finally) taken the plunge and purchased a domain name! It already makes me feel more confident about sharing this blog without the clunky URL. All I'm saying in this post is that the content may not be regular for a couple of weeks, but then it hasn't been for a while because I don't like uploading if I feel my efforts are substandard. Onwards and upwards as they say.

If you're here anyway, why not have a look above at my Tags, Popular Posts and Review Directory pages to catch up on my past posts.

This weekend is going to be a cold one up north, so all the more reason to snuggle up with some good television.

Finishing University: 1 Year On, #TheGraduateDream?

On Monday 29th September 2014, I woke up completely free from full-time education. At the time I felt overwhelming relief because this meant my 15,000 word dissertation was handed in but it didn't take too long before a whole new set of worries emerged. I soon missed the security of being a student, knowing exactly what was next and having the 'student' title to describe what I was doing with my time. I took on more hours at the part-time retail job I'd had since my second year of university, which was a welcome change from an intense year of studying. However over this past year I've experienced periods of feeling low and negative about myself, which has hit me hard. The graduate dream hasn't worked out the way I thought it would for me so far but I've learned to be more positive about myself, so this is what I've learned:

Rimmel Nude Picks: Kate Lipstick, Nail Polish and Lip Liner

On the same day I was sleep deprived and ended up buying two Soap and Glory Gloss Sticks (review here), I also took a fancy to a few nude delights from Rimmel. Nude shades are perfect for any time of the year, but these darker nude shades seem to be an upcoming autumn and winter trend.

Why I Fall In and Out of Love With Blogging

Time to get truthful. I've been blogging since 2012 when one day I just decided to set up a blog and join the beauty community that I loved. I spent most of my free time watching YouTube videos, reading blogs and researching beauty products so creating a blog was exciting. In my first couple of months I posted more times than I have in the last year. However when I started my Masters degree that became my main focus and suddenly spending my free time reading and writing wasn't my priority. Since then I've have spurts of inspiration for blogging but I'm always plagued by my negative feelings towards blogging, especially within the beauty and lifestyle community.
