Things not to say to someone with a mental illness

Hello beauties, i love reading these types of posts as I can somewhat relate to them. So I thought I would share my opinions of ‘What not to say to someone with a mental illness’. 


1. Your not OCD, people will OCD are clean.

This one just makes me laugh. OCD is no where near just being clean or neat, that’s only a small section of the disorder. OCD has many different sections such as checking, intrusive thoughts, magical thinking and many more. 

2.  Stop taking your antidepressants, you will feel better

I really don’t like hearing this one as it makes the person feel ashamed of taking the medication. 

3. Your such a emo

Self harm is a very complicated thing, people shouldn’t be defined by it and definitely not stereotyped by this. If you notice that someone is self harming, this is the worst thing to say. 

4.  Just be happy, get out of bed and be happy 

For some people the basic tasks of day to day life are too much. 

5. Stop attention seeking 

It’s a cry for help not attention seeking.

6. She did that because of her mental illness 

Not everything someone does is a result of their mental illness.

7. I was depressed for a few days once, I know how you feel. 

Simple answer. No you don’t 

My Favourite Tunes Of The Month! 

Hello beauties, today I will be sharing my favourite tunes of the month. Most people love music, I know I do it’s a huge part of my life, hopefully I can give you some musical inspiration through sharing my favourite tunes with you


1. Selena Gomez – It Anit Me 

This song just makes me want to party! Definitely a mood booster. I always have a little party in my head when listening to this masterpiece of a song.

2. Julia Michaels – Issues

I heard this song from Elle B, she covered this on YouTube and it was Incredible, this girl is incredibly talented and extremely inspirational. 

3. Alessia Cara – How Far I’ll Go 

Yes it’s a Disney song! The new Disney film Moana, this song was played throughout and I can’t get enough of it. I must say it’s been on repeat on the bus a lot for me. 

4. James Arthur – Finally 

I followed him from the start and will continue to the end, I must say I do have kinda a HUGE crush on him. Love the new album but also love the older songs. 

5. Sada Vidoo – The Winner Takes It All

A beautifully unique voice this women has. She was one the X Factor last year, a lot of people disliked her due to her doll like appearance however I loved it. Such a unique beauty.

6. Harry Styles – Sigh Of The Times

I wasn’t a fan of one direction apart from ‘THATS WHAT MAKES YOU BEAUTIFUL’ because.. who doesn’t. This song.. I have no words just listen…

December Favourites! 

Hello beauties, 

Today I am going to be talking you through my December favourites. I’m going to be making a favourites post on the 1st of every month for you all, I hope you enjoy. 

Let’s start off with beauty related things. 

 

This is the Models Own powder eyeshadow in ‘white pearl’.

I love anything sparkly/shiny, that’s why I brought this shimmery shade.  I didn’t really use it however when all these highlighter trends starting coming about I thought, I could put this product to good use. This eyeshadow works as a perfect highlighter for me as I have a light skin tone, I use a tiny bit only on my Cupid’s bow and the inner corners of my eyes and use then Benefit high beam on my cheek bones plus under the brow bone as I don’t want to go to crazy with highlighter. I know that this is a eyeshadow but it doesn’t have any colour to it on my pale eyelids (for darker skin tones this would work perfectly as an eyeshadow) so I found a better use for it, to look like a shimmery princess. 

This is a Barry M nail paint the colour doesn’t have a name but it is the clothes show special edition nail paint.

It really isn’t the season for nude nails, I probably should be keeping up with the seasons, winter (greens, burgundys, maroon) nope I have nude summer nails and I love them! This colour is a nude peachy pink colour and I haven’t stopped wearing it all of December, so it’s only right that this nail product deserved a place in my December favourites.

This is the Lee Stafford Big Texture SPRay. 

I had never seen a hairspray/dry shampoo mashup before I recieving this for Christmas. I know I’m cheating I haven’t used this the whole month however I have used it every day since receiving it so I’m sure it’s allowed a place. It does exactly what the bottle says, gives oily hair a big textured boost, not to mention this smells incredible! This product doesn’t leave my hair with that grey tone that I get after using other dry shampoos and I think that’s what I love most about it.

Now on to non beauty favourites 

James Arthur – BACK FROM THE EDGE. 

I honestly don’t know how to start with this album, James has the most unique, mezmorisimg voice I have ever heard. I could listen to this man sing all day. He went through a rough patch and came back better than ever and I couldn’t be happier. I was routing for James from the beginning of his X Factor journey and was in tears with every performance, I even purchased his book -it was incredible! I’m such a fan girl. I even had a dream last night that James worked in ASDA and gave me his pen haha it was the weirdest thing but I was so happy in the dream to have the pen. My favourite song is ‘Finally ‘ it’s so beautiful and is so real, I tear up every time I listen. I can’t explain it too well just go have a listen to the song – you won’t regret it.

WISPA BISCUITS! 

I’m not a fan of biscuits usally but these are amazing! The taste a little like ‘fabulous fingers’. My favourite chocolate ever made better, love it. I’ve eaten way to many of these.

Let me know your December favourites and if you love anything I have mentioned in this post. Free free to ask me any questions.

That’s all for now beauties,

Byeeee ❤️

Top songs to help you through a hard time!

Hello girlies, 

So this is something a little bit different, but I feel it is nessercery – it’s simple really, I love to share my thoughts and feelings plus I love music. I don’t think I have ever mentioned this on my blog before but I am a music student so music is very close to my heart and helps me through tough times. 

1. Lullaby – Nickleback LULLABY (link)

I love this song I really do, the lyrics are so deep and ,meaningful. I love this song because I can really relate to the words Chad is singing, and he’s singing about depression but in a positive way he’s explaining if your feeling low listen to the song (the lullaby )  I have to say it really does help cheer you up! 

2. Fight Song – Rachael Platten FIGHT SONG (link) 

Now this song is a little happier lyrically it’s about fighting through, taking back your life and being strong. The song itself makes you feel powerful when listening to it – a instant mood lifter! Weather it’s a hard day at work/school/uni or your sick or even your just feeling like you need some motivation, this is the song for you!

3. Recovery – James Arthur RECOVERY (link)

I love James Arthur, everything he sings means something and you can almost feel his pain due to the emotion in his voice when performing. This song is essentially about ‘recovery’ the lyrics read ‘in my recovery I’m a solider at war, I have broken down walls, I defined, I designed my recovery’. I think that pretty much explains it all. Your recovery from exams to eating disorders or depression. ‘I defined, I designed my recovery’ your in control.

4. F**k You – Lilly Allen F**K YOU (link) 

This is pure genius. If someone has done something to get your down or your just not feeling people at this time – listen to this on repeat; it’s brilliant.

5. F**k You Right Back  F**K YOU RIGHT BACK (link) 

The ultimate break up song, if your feeling guilty about a break up, your upset it ended or you broke up with someone because they weren’t who you thought. 

Adiòs girlies ❤
