My Favourite Tumblr Blogs


After e-mails, Twitter and Facebook the most likely site for me to log onto is Tumblr. I mean LOG ON! I can stay there for two hours solid without even realising it. I love how great a tool it is is for finding inspirational words, cupcake ideas, new recipes and cute pictures of furry friends.

Despite following not far short of 100 blogs (I really need to cut that down!) there are always those blogs that always post cute, meaningful or downright snazzy photos and words.

Eyelure Individual Lashes Review


After my previous lulzworthy attempts with false eyelashes (I forgot to mention but they were Ardell 101 Demi Black) I decided to take my dance shows make-up artist's advice and try individual lashes due to me having baby sized eyes.

This time I didn't pull them off in upset strop.

And kept them on to go to the ball. Yes, a ball. 



I didn't have time before I left to take an proper outfit/make-up photo & this is the best I have to show my eyelashes. Though fiddly to apply they definitely give a more natural and personalised look. When it comes to false eyelashes I prefer to add length rather than volume and with these lashes I managed to achieve that. Though I will warn that the one's marked "long" are LONG and I ended up only using them on the very outer corners of my eyes. 

The packet comes with seventeen short, medium and long lashes sizes plus adhesive, instructions and a liquid remover. For the application you are meant to place a very small amount of the adhesive on aluminium foil which I didn't do but I still found the lashes stuck. As for removal I didn't use the removal mixture as when I rubbed my eyes the next morning they came off (maybe didn't stick as well as I had thought). The long lashes were the easiest to apply with me managing to bend some of the smaller ones during the application.

All and all I much prefer these to regular false eyelashes purely for the natural effect (they are also much lighter) and will probably wear these on many a night out.

P.S. The dress (which you can't see) was from New Look and I found it in their sale section for £5 down from £30 so get your pretty butt down there!

First World Problems: A Check On Reality


Anyone who uses the internet, has a shed of humanity or, like me, is an avid reader of Yes and Yes will know about First World Problems.

You know the "problems" that people in developed nations face such as that giant zit on their face, double chins in that Facebook picture they were just tagged in or dropping their phone down the toilet in a drunken stutter.

But if these people were to put their problems into a pile with those from a third world country they would no doubt say "It's okay, I'll accept my flabby thighs as long as I can live in a country that permits women to vote".

I've always been a fan of reading about people who've been through traumatic experiences, not because I like reading about depressing stories, but because it reminds me to grateful for what I have. Maybe the only thing that puts me off getting a tattoo is my mother's reaction (it would be along the lines of what "YOU'LL REGRET THAT WHEN YOU'RE SIXTY") but at least she's not Dave Pelzer's mum.

So in praise of being grateful for my first world privilege here are my first world problems:
  • Eating raw all the time is not possible in the real day-to-day world. 
  • In the past month I have had to tell two male friends "I love you, but only as a friend"
  • My PC mouse is non-responsive, I still haven't haven't replaced my sound card and my PC chair cannot be raised any higher.
  • I have very little plans as to what to do when university ends
  • I also have very little idea of what to base my dissertation on
  • I forgot to fill out my timesheet for work this week

I'd certainly rather have these problems than the little girl who goes "well, my mum just died from HIV". Just saying.

Things I Love Thursday #5



Wow a Things I Love Thursday post? I fell back on these in February due to Thursday being my bussiest weekday but I've jumped straight back on the bandwagon ;)

More exciting opportunities in social media
I love my job looking after my university's career development centre's Facebook and Twitter. Today I attended a presentation for Social Innovation Camp and it got my heart pumping! I'm not 100% sure if I'll run for it and I don't want to give too much away at this point, but it looks like their could be something exciting over the horizon.

Eating near enough raw again
Admittedly I fell off the raw bandwagon, especially after finding out that I had to regain weight after realising my weight loss had been a lot more significant that I had imagined. But I'm back and the only major non-raw things making into my diet are bread, spread and the odd energy drink (caffeine will be another day!).

Seeing my muscle definition reappear 
Looking back on my un-noticed weightloss I now believe it was due to my muscle mass disintegrating and turning back into fat. Thankfully I've notice some shape coming back into my arms & I should be back to my previous strength soon.

Being able to walk away
I've never been great at walking away from people I know I should though since my last relationship that ended in October - though it should have probably ended in June - I've had my final straw and realised from now on, if someone won't treat you with the respect you deserve or makes you feel bad about yourself, they ain't worth it! And I've managed to follow through with own advice very recently.

My new Tumblr
Yes, I am grateful for my newest tumblr blog, haha. When I first heard of Tumblr it was still used for posts that were too long for Twitter but too short for a full blog post - or at least that's what was happening at that time within the circle I was working in. When I joined last summer I was now more accustomed to the inspirational photos and thus my first blog centered around that. After seeing some more personal-ish ones crop up recently though I felt the urge to return to my orginal reason for noticing Tumblr. After discovering the fancy feature which allows me to have two blogs linked ot the same account, Mo'Adore @ tumblr was born :)

How I Looked 10.04.2011: Dance Show Edition


As previously mentioned at certain points here I am a member of my university's Dance and Cheer Team :D Last night was the night of our annual dance show where the theme was "The seven deadly sins versus the seven heavenly virtues". As I have not done a how I looked post in some time (mainly to do with not finding time to pose in front of a camera/not having an ideal spot to take these photos) I decided this would be excellent start to the series again.

The full outfit:
Waistcoat: Primark
Skirt: Claire's Accessories (last October)
Fishnets: New Look
Knee High Socks: New Look
Fishnet Top: an old pair of fishnet tights turned upside down with the gusset cut!

For the show we were told to come up with our own basic black outfit of our own choice that we would add to with different accessories for different dances (light blue for a virtue, red for a sin) and this was my take. When it comes to fancy dress I always like to go a bit punky. When I dressed up as the Saw puppet for Halloween I wore fishnets as part of it. However the sheer amount of detail on the outfit did mean that it didn't always match the accessories I was given. For one dance I wore the top half of a cheer suit and I looked like one fucked up goth teenager. Thankfully the gangsta outfit I wore for a hip hop piece was a full outfit (one quick change there) so this outfit was completely covered. 


For the make-up I took the pattern idea on the side of my eye from this youtube video which was surprisingly simple (though practice is required!) whilst my eyes (which were done by a professional) were a mix of silver and navy with Girl Aloud Sarah eyelashes. Plus, my cheeks and lips had Barry M Glitter Dust in Crimson liberally sprinkled on them.

All in all a good night with some amazing compliments on the show. I may blog about the show in the future once more photos come through from my parents but as this is a "how i looked post" it shall remain outfit and beauty orientated only ;)
