What should I put on this?

I bought this around a year ago now and it spent a good few months doing nothing but looking pretty in my spare room. I have only just finished decorating my boudoir so had brought it back in and gave it a feature place under the eaves of the roof but I have no idea what to put on it? Its got draws, its got a pull out tray and it also lights up in two places.
I bought it online from Sweetpea & Willow and I had to save up loads for it so I want it to be used to its max. In the photo it had all artist stuff placed on it and the pull out tray had a glass of water with paint brushes in it. That is what sold it for me because I am a quirky little artist at heart.

Here it is, Any ideas?

I can't wait to see what you come up with because I have no clue?

I love it because it is so vintage and cute looking plus its pink and goes with my room :)

What do you recommend?

Hia Everyone,

I have been putting my make up in to categories "BY BRAND" and I noticed I have very little Urban Decay at this point. I noticed your poll votes and Urban Decay was high up there on the list so please help me out here and tell me what you would recommend me to get from this line?

This is what I have but as you can see, mostly crazy colours and maybe I need some softer go for it! Anything you can think of and it will be greatly appreciated.

I have:

Urban Decay- Eye shadow palette
Eye shadow- Illegal
Eye shadow- Cult
Eye shadow-Goddess
Eye shadow- Twice baked
Eye shadow-Last call
Eye shadow-Half baked
Eye shadow- Graffiti
2 big fatty mascaras
Primer potion
Primer potion-Sin
24/7 Glide on eye pencils⤵
1x 24/7 Glide on lip pencil-Wicked

I the products so far and I can't wait to add to this collection. As far as I know I can get this through Debenhams here in the UK and if not I can go online so not a problem.
I especially the Glide on eye pencils because they are so creamy and keep their intensity throughout the day.

Can't wait to see what you recommend or any other brand for that matter?

Thanks for reading, subscribing, sharing and all that jazz because it really does help! :)

Bright blue skinny jeans

I am in love with brightly coloured skinny jeans and today I wore Bright blue ones.
Wanting something to match I painted my nails in the new China Glaze lacquers and created a make up look inspired by them. The light blue nail colour is called Electric beat and Skyscraper is the dark sparkling one.....I am in love!

I had to chuck in that necklace so I could use up some silver in my inspired look ;)
The blue jeans are my favourite colour but blue eye shadow is usually a hard colour to pull off so I teamed it with a bit of black, silver sparkle, pink cheeks and lips. I loved the look, hope you do too? :)

The products used to create the above look are:
All make up brushes I use are from my own line
*SUQQU -foundation-15
*Urban Decay -Primer potion
*MAC- eye shadow -Bang on blue
*Beauty UK palette - Black
*Urban Decay -24/7 glide on eye pencil- Zero
*Collection2000 glam crystals liner-Glitz
*Illamasqua- Blush- Tremble
*L'Oreal- lipstick- Beyond Blushing
*Ardell- Modlashes
*Bourjois- Clubbing mascara- Black

Look what I found :)

I was looking through my make up room because I have been dying to get back in to colour cosmetics for my up and coming videos and I found these gorgeous eye shadow powders.
I remember back in the day (around 4 years ago) when I got given Lumiere cosmetics for reviews. There are around 20 eye shadows and 2 or 3 face powders, not sure I still have them all but they are a blast from the past to say the least.
I am not even sure you can still buy these ( I hope so) because if you do get a chance to grab a few they are well worth it and highly pigmented. Not sure on the price point but I remember them not being expensive considering the amount of applications per pot. There are only a few that are used up and I cant remember using them so me thinks there has been some spillages.

Here are the eye powders...just look at the sparkle and apologies for my not so great camera quality. I think its time to trade in the old for a new one if I am to enjoy posting pictures for you :)
From top to bottom, left to right:

*Lavender Pearl*
*Prismatic Green*
*Raspberry Margarita*
*Glimmer Green*
*Gold Sparkle*
*Orange Glaze*
*Deep Forest Green*
*Cat's Eye*
*Peacock Blue*
*Raspberry Truffle*
*Peppermint Patti*

I love these shades and colour payoff and can not wait to start using them again. I lost track of so much of my make up after moving from my Mam's house and then my old house. Boxes with wrong descriptions on makes for lots of lost goodies! :) Men...never let them write whats in a box if you are moving ;)

I have some more make up goodies coming up and all will be used in my up and coming videos! :) #EXCITEDVERY

You guys are my inspiration!

Ok so this past week I have been going through my competition video responses and I wasn't prepared for what hit me.
Not only did I thoroughly enjoy watching all the entries but I also felt inspired. Yes inspired :)
I noticed these videos were done by happy people using colour, some soft, some crazy, some pastel and some down right flirty. I also noticed that these people were enjoying their craft and doing the looks they loved doing.

I was inspired to go back to my old videos and have a look at the looks that I used to create and I am glad that I did. Back then I always just done a look that popped in to my head making the videos not only coloured completely by my taste but they were also not pre though out. They were as Nike would say "Just do it" style.

Over the years on Youtube it is hard to keep thinking of new ideas and that is why I always ask for requests from you. Problem is Id done too many requests and forgotten about my little passion "Colour" and being down right "arty".

Here are some of the looks I used to do back then and I am itching to get back in to it all on my channel. I feel like my channel needs a boost of passion and I got just that whilst watching you! :) Thank you.

Oh and P.S To all of you that still watch and enjoy, Thank you very much. You make this little girl here a very happy one :)

Motivation.....What motivation?

Yup.. So mine has taken a run, a very long run which is more than I can say for myself.
I have never been one to just go with the flow and let myself go but lately I find my motivation at an all time low. Since I moved to this new house just over a year ago now I seemed to have lost myself, wondering if I left "Me" back at the old house??
I think a lot to do with my weight gain is stress related and being so busy with work to the point where I am just not looking after myself properly. I don't eat breakfast, I cant stomach it and instead have a very strong coffee..The type that looks like gravy and can strip walls.
I know what you are thinking..."Eat breakfast silly" well I just cant so I wait a few hours and then start making something light. On a night time this is totally the opposite, I have my meal with family and then have this tremendous sweet tooth come over me which I call my "Sweet Canine" because its ridiculous how consumed by the thought of chocolate I get..Grr.
The other day I decided I was going to eat healthily and run on my treadmill. The first night was awful as I think I over did it and felt like I was going to pass out. The second night I was ok because Id started slow and built up to a good run. I will try and keep this up because it wasn't so bad and I feel fantastic once I am done. I also looked at the calories on a bar of chocolate for the first time and thought "Nah..not worth it!" So anyway, I am going to try and keep this up as a new way of life because I have two options-

 1- Keep going up in size and weight and no doubt become more and more depressed and unhealthy. 

 2- Move my butt more, eat healthily "which I actually love doing" Just need to learn to prepare for busy days and learn to respect and love myself a bit more.  

 The second option is my goal.

Thanks for reading so far and I will keep you all updated on what I get up to and if you are interested in this subject and would like to "support each other" then leave me a comment below :)
