Zoeva Rose Gold Eye Brushes

Being a fan of all things rose golden and all things brushes when i saw this eye set i knew that they would be coming home with me.

Zoeva are an amazing company and so affordable for the quality. My favourite out the bunch is the 228 crease brush, its highly comparable to the famous MAC 217 but with the rose gold detail and under half the price i think the 228 takes the cake!

These brushes are all over the internet so i know you've seen countless blog posts but i couldn't help but mention them! This set is perfect for starting out or just expanding your eye brush kit. They have every brush you'll ever need. The density is perfect and they haven't shredded during multiple washes.
I'm blown away with the Zoeva brushes and now i can't wait to get my hands on more, i have my eye on the Rose Golden 2 Face Brushes especially that beautiful contour brush in there!

What do you think of Zoeva brushes?

How I Juggle Work, College and Blogging

I opted for a bit of a different post but something i wanted to talk about on my blog.
Like pretty much everyone my plate is full. What with the final month of college, making enough money for living and fitting it around a blog schedule which i want to make the best of my abilities it gets stressful.

Let me fill you in a little bit, I'm in my final weeks of Fashion Promotion course. I'm working 4/5 days at Miss Selfridge and I'm blogging once a week which I'm hoping to increase to 2.


Prioritise: What's most important to you?
Don't spread yourself thin: Miss a week of blogging, say no to that extra shift. You come first!
Organise: Write down your rota, plan out your days, make to-do lists.
Weekly Planners: Set your days. I don't like to do a post in a day, i like to take a photo on a Monday, edit it on a Tuesday, write it on a Wednesday, i find it more fun and less last minute and stressful.
Everyone needs a day off: Even you! Allow a pamper day with Netflix and a face mask. It'll do wonders to your stress levels.
Socialise: When I'm busy i often forget about socialising and i feel so much better when i have a little chat with one my friends.
Have fun: If you don't like it, don't do it. Obvious one really but do things for you not because someone asked you to.
Don't forget to sleep: Being busy you have late nights but please try and fit at least 6 hours sleep in and don't substitute it with caffeine!

I hope you bare these tips in mind. They help me to balance things out and keep my stress to a minimum. You can't be in 10 places at once and you need to remember that.

Any other helpful tips?
