Holla! Happy NatsChatsTuesday Peeps! Hope the last two weeks have treated you well. I’m in an oddly good mood right now and so I though I would touch on fairly sensitive subject. This topic either boosts my confidence and makes me feel like a cool, crazy, independent woman who “don’t belong to no city, don’t belong to no man” and other times i’m crying because i’ll be forever alone and no one wants me. There is literally no in between. But why I’m still in the first category I though Id reach out to my fellow Pringles and show you it ain’t all bad. Yes, i’m going to be talking about Being Single.
I know all those empowering quotes you find on pinterest mostly just wanna make you throw up so my first rule is: DONT RELY ON WHAT OTHER PEOPLE SAY TO CHEER YOURSELF UP! This applys to all aspects of self confidence.
The next thing is so, so important. I imagine whilst scrolling through Instagram you’ve seen the phrase “whats a queen without her king”. the thing I think all of you need to realise is that a queen without a king is still a queen. In modern times a woman can rule the world without anyone “by her side”. She’ll be doing the same amount of work without any help from a man (or woman). So if you are single you’re just proving to the world that you dont need anyone, and can live perfectly well on your own (btw thats what your are doing right now – if your reading this you are living).
Now the question lots of people will be wanting to avoid once you realise the single life isnt actually bad atall is when people ask “why are you single?”. When people say this just laugh or walk away. You dont ask them why their in a relationship so they must be making some joke that wasnt as funny as they thought. One of my favourite quotes is:
Because its so much better to live your life solo, than settle down!
And my favourite point to share with you, is that the single life lets you spend time with the most amazing, gorgeous person in the round, yourself. This person should be your number one priority as your stuck with them for all eternity. So please my peeps love yourself as much as i do, you are so worth everything you want, and if it dosent work out, it clearly wasn’t worth you! I LOVE YOU!XX
“IT’S NATSCHATS TUESDAY AND ITS ACTUALLY A TUESDAY!”
Remember that series of blogs I started where I would tell you my favourite songs i’m loving right now, new and old? Yeah me neither. Thats because I published the first post over a year ago!!! Jeez how time flies. Anyway here is your update of my favourite songs i’ve been listening to a hella lot recently:
“Work This Body” WALK THE MOON – this is such a dancy upbeat song that you could do some serious interpretive dancing to. It also love the cheeky french lyrics thrown in there.
“Geronimo” SHEPPARD – Catchy af (SAY GERONIMO!)
“You Da One” RIHANNA – Aww come on we all need some love in our lives
“Thirsty” Daya – OMG literally the sassiest song ive heard in so, so long. When you wanna fend off a F*ck Boy and embrase the beauty of single life. Sing this on a girls night and it is garunnteed to go down well with all your friends giving you the “OML YAAASSSS GURRRLLL” look.
“If I believe you” THE 1975 – I had a revelation (AAAAHHHHHH!)
“Castle On The Hill” Ed Sheeran – See I can be up and coming too! This song made me smile from the first time I heard it. Its so nostalgic and im sure anyone can relate to it from their childhood and old friends.
“Crazy Crazy Nights” KISS – Massive Throwback but such a good song. You literally cannot helo but sing alont no matter what age you are!
“Icarus” BASTILLE – You have to sing it passionately so I suggest maybe not listening to it in public. But when your driving in the car would be perfect (just please keep your eyes on the road).
I hope you enjoyed that little update into a big park of my life, music. If you would like to see what else im currently listening to my spotify is: https://open.spotify.com/user/natnats14. I hope to see you all next week and please do give me any suggestions from your personal music faves. Keep Jammin! Xx
Please ignore the fact I have been A-WALL for nearly a month, I am a very busy person and I will not bother you with the reasons why, just know i am very sorry and embarrassed.
But today I though i would do a cheeky review of some products even though it isn’t NatsChats Tuesday. Today i will be reviewing some of the Superdrug face masks which are normally £1 each which i will say right now is an absolute bargain. I love Superdrug as i feel like I can always trust their products plus they often have many deals and sales on which means i am always picking up my old favourite and new experimental beauty bits.
The three Superdrug Face masks were:
- “Superdrug Cooling Cucumber Face Mask” ideal for Sensitive Skin
- “Superdrug Dead sea purifying Face mask” ideal for Oily and Blemish Prone Skin
- ” Superdrug Tropical Cocktail Peel – Off Mask” ideal for all skin types.
Up first is the Cooling Cucumber. It says in the description that it refreshes and cools skin which i must say is exactly correct. I only washed this one off about 10 minutes ago but my face is still cool. Its quite an odd sensation actually, it feels like I’ve got cold slime on my face (but obviously just feels like soft skin to the touch. One problem i did find however was the fact that it made the blackheads on my nose GREEN! That has washed off now but if you didn’t wash your face properly after I am afraid you may be walking round with a small resemblance to Shrek!
Next is the dead sea drama. Don’t be put off my the menacing name, the only slightly fishy ingredient in it is Dead Sea Salt. I didn’t know salt could die but I guess you learn something new everyday! It smells wonderful but it does say its meant to stop breakouts which I’m sad to say it hasn’t. I’m still getting spots in the usual places however i will say it helped the spots i already have go away.
And last but certainly not least we have our Tropical cocktail. i am a tad biased towards this one as I definitely prefer peel – Off masks as you can literally see the gunk leaving your face (grim I know). But yeah I really enjoyed using this one as it again smelt amazing (very summery) and appeared to fully clean out my pores. Obviously my pores did not stay clean for long but it was nice while it lasted.
My perfect face mask would be one that cleaned out your pores and them shrunk them up because mine are getting pretty chunky in some places! So if you know any masks like that please do let me know. I hope you enjoyed this little review and may I say again how much i highly recommend this brand of face masks. they do not test on animals and contain a lot of natural ingredients and so I’m nearly 100% sure they are all vegan and vegetarian friendly (at least most are)!
See you soon Chums!
