"The less you respond to negative people the more peaceful your life will become."

I know we can all have our bad days, heck I'll be the first to admit that I've had moments where I've envisioned punching someone in the face and found it extremely satisfying. We're human, it happens! However, there are certain people in this world who just never ever seem to have a smile on their face, regardless of the situation.  

It's a damn shame that the world isn't full of lovely, amazing, kind people, and for the folk that are, it can be quite difficult having to deal with them putting a dampener on your spirits, and unfortunately, I'm sure there will come a time in each of our lives where we will have to encounter this breed. 

So in preparation for when that time comes, here's a few tips on how to deal with negative people.

Don't be influenced. Quite often, the mood of the people around you can be infectious and you can find yourself feeling and acting the way they do. If they laugh, you laugh, if they're in a grump, you're in a grump! But if you woke up feeling good about the day, try to hold on to that because not only will you feel better, but the people around you will prefer it too. 

2) Don't rise to it. I know it can be hella irritating when someone is constantly grinding your gears, but a rise from you is exactly what they want. If they're down, they want you to be down too and that's not right!

3) Don't take it personal. If anybody is being offensive or negative towards you with no real merit, then you are not the problem here, and although it can be difficult to keep reminding yourself of that, you have to do it to prevent it from upsetting you.   

4) Remove them from your life. It can be incredibly draining being surrounded by constant negativity and
 it's certainly not a crime to not want that in your life anymore. You don't have to be cruel, but you can always start seeing less of them, and you might find it could have a positive impact on your life. 

5) Know your worth. Ignore them! Remember that your happiness needs to come first. You are you, and you are great. Do not allow any other human being on this planet make you feel anything less than amazing! 

If you think that maybe you could be a little negative towards your friends, try looking at it from a their perspective and imagining how uncomfortable they might feel. Remember that the world can be truly and remarkably wonderful to those who appreciate it :)

Let's reduce some of our own negativity and comment what you're most grateful for!

"I like my money right where I can see it... Hanging in my closet." - Carrie Bradshaw 

A few nights ago, a load of us from work went out for the evening for dinner and drinks. It was an evening well spent with great laughs, good food and lots of Prosecco. But I have to say, I was most excited about the fact I was able to debut my new favourite Spring outfit! 

In this outfit, I definitely felt like Carrie Bradshaw, and that I was ready to run around the city of Manhattan falling in love, meeting with my girlfriends and writing about sex! But, unfortunately my life is not as glamorous as it is on the TV, and I have to go to work everyday instead. Boo! 

Pastels are always a great way to go for a Spring/Summer look, and midi skirts, although have been around for a while, are not going out of style anytime soon. They are a perfect statement piece for an evening such as dinner or drinks. 

You can find this skirt from H&M, this crop top from Miss Selfridge, and these beautiful shoes are from Topshop.

Kylie Jenner has sent the world into a frenzy with her big lips. First we were all like "gurl, don't play we can see your real lip line" and now, it's virtually impossible for anyone to get their hands on MAC's Velvet Teddy lipstick, and Soar lip liner as everyone wants to steal the look! 

So, over time I have learnt a few tips & tricks with make up that could enhance your lips, and fool everyone into believing they're natural! 

All you'll need is a brown lip liner, and any nude colour lipstick. I'm using MAC Blankety, which is my absolute favourite right now. 

Firstly I use my favourite lip balm from EOS to prevent my lips from drying out! 

Then, I outline the whole of my lips. However, I am drawing the line slightly outside of my actual lip line, but not so much so that you are able to see a noticeable difference. It's really important you don't overdraw the line, as it could end up looking really false and tacky. A good thing to remember is not to have the pencil too sharp as a blunt one can give a more natural blend.  

After that, still using my lip liner I draw over the creases in my lip to accentuate them before applying any colour. It is important to use a shade that is significantly darker than the lipstick you are using so that you can still see the lines under the lipstick. 

Finally, using my chosen lipstick I apply that all over my lips. If necessary, you could use a lip brush to blend everything together to avoid any harsh, noticeable lines. 

And that's it guys, my not so secret guide to bigger lips! For a more natural look you can keep it as it is, but if it's for a special event, glide some lipgloss over the top for super, sexy lips!

"These boots are made for walking, and that's just what they'll do"

Thigh high boots are everywhere these days, and even though everybody seems to own a pair, they can be quite difficult to style, especially if you're a short arse like me! I'm constantly looking at different blogs, or Instagram pics to figure out new looks and combinations. So today I thought, why not share with you a few very different looks with the same pair of boots! 

1) The first outfit I want to share with you is the dressiest of the three, which is combining your thigh highs with a mini dress. This outfit was initially inspired by Ariana Grande, and it's the perfect trick to keeping warm on a cold night out. You can find this dress on Missguided, the belt from Urban Outfitters, and the boots are from Ebay. 

2) My second outfit of choice is a more casual approach. I chose an oversized knitted jumper with a black leather skater skirt, I think this looks so cute and girly and is such a comfortable outfit for one of those Spring days. You can find this jumper from H&M, in a variety of different colours, and the skirt is from Vero Moda. 

3) My final outfit is an oversized tee and boots. This combo is honestly one of my favourite outfits ever, it's not only super comfortable but as it's oversized and baggy you can cover up any bumps and  bulges, and still look sexy as hell! You can find this oversized tee at New Look, and the leather is a vintage Topshop piece I found raiding my aunts wardrobe! 

I hope this helped! Let me know what you wear with your thigh highs!
