I'm back...

It's been 10 months...

Now that seems a decent amount of time to have done something pretty productive in, although in my case I've done nothing. I was tempted to go back and read over some of my old blog posts to get me back into the swing of things but honestly, I just wanted a fresh start. In my head this sounds all emotional and for some reason american but I'm basically some wee Scottish chick who's not cool in the slightest. 

I don't really have a plan this time round-no pre set out post guides, themes or anything for that matter. Something just clicked with me and I realised how much I love and miss writing random shit every couple of weeks because I love putting down my thoughts. So, I guess that's what I'm going to do... Just talk. 

A lot of things have changed in these past 10 months. I've left school, begun an amazing music business course, lost and gained friends but mostly I feel I've grown up. Maybe some changes have upset me but I know it's for the better, or not even perminant. I've had so much time to think and instead of bottling it all up and crying every few weeks over a ton of shit that's built up, I think it's a good idea for me to just put it down here. 

Sometimes I feel I can't necessarily speak to those I used to because they've moved on and to talk to them would drag them back down to where I am-where we used to be. But things have changed and I need to aknowledge that. 

This has turn very morbid. So, yeah.. Hopefully this won't turn into a depressing blog. I'll still talk about makeup products and things of that nature because it makes me happy. I'll continue as before in a way: with all my random 'reviews' etc... But mainly I just want a space to breathe and be myself. God help us all. 

Enjoy this picture of my fat hamster... 

Later, chickas ✌️

Sugar Radio and Management Announcement!

Heeey! So today I'm posting something a little bit different to my usual ramble.. A wee announcement of something I've been involved in plus some exciting oppurtunities for you guys in la musique careers ;)

Ok, so I'll explain a little... 

I've recently become a PR for Johnston based radio station named Sugar Radio. It's fab, not gonna lie. And they've started their own label funnily enough called Sugar Management. They're currently looking for talanted lads of the ages 14-19 who can sing, dance, interact with all the sexy fans they'll gain and all that jazz! So if you or anyone else you know that would be interested get in touch with myself or sugar at @SugarMgmt for some more information about that! I can tell you that rehearsals and recording etc would like to begin in March so let's be snappy with these tweets;) 

Part of my job being a PR is to promote local upcoming artists and get them the recognition they deserve. We're currently working with 5 gorgeous girlies. 4 of which are in an amazing girlband called Echo and last but by no means least, Courtney Gibson, a solo artist who is fab!

Both acts will be supporting the lovely Ashley Collins at Glasgows 02abc on the 28th of February and tickets are selling like hot cakes so you better be quick! It's going to be an amazing night and I recommend that you get in supporting our girls before they  become world wide superstars! 

That's all for now folks, keep an eye out for our new blog that will be made and updated regularly to keep you updated with all the crazy fun stuff Sugar Radio will be soon and for upcoming gigs and other events! 

Give the girls a wee follow on twitter:
@CourtneyGSings and @OfficialEcho_

Until next time chickaaaasss x

Pinch, punch, first of the month!

Happy February everyone!

I thought I'd kick start this fab month with a little lippy review. I'm going to be more consistent with my blog posts as as you can tell... I'm crap at keeping a writing pattern. 

Anyway.. Let's begin! I recently bought a new Kate Moss lipstick from boots. It's the most gorgeous deep red colour which I never in a million years thought I would be able to pull off but I really do love it! Number 107 is one of my daily, any kind of occasion lippy. It's just amazing... I'm litterally speechless. 

I've been kinda obsessed with getting a purple lipstick and I have chosen then one I want which is from the Sleek range, found in SuperDrug. However, this obsession is unfulfilled as I cannot find the colour (name of which slips my mind right now..) anywhere! I've looked in te only 3 stores I know exists near y and they're all sold out! The most annoying thing is that it's the only bloody colour that is sold out, along with my backup: Fushia!  

I thought it wouldn't suit me to begin with but I love it. Honestly so glad I bough it! And here's a vane selfie showing it off haha 

Anyway, as I said at the start, im going to be writing more blog posts mainly because it's fun and I've it a lot of exciting things coming up which I can't wait to show/tell you about!

Until next time chickaaaas x

The liebster awards!

And I'm back!...

It's been a while and I apologise by what better way to come back than with a post that's trending all over the place? That's right..

I've been nominated for a liebster award by the lovely Erin from 
Basically, this is a few questions to find out more about new/old bloopers and to help them get a little more recognition. I love this idea because there are so many bloggers I read who don't have that many followers and they really deserve more because their stuff is fab! 

Let's get started!...

1) what made you start your blog?

Well.. I started my blog in September 2013 because I was getting bored writing a diary. I thought I'd start up an online blog as the internet is where I spend the majority of my time anyway. I was influenced by people such as 'Zoella' and 'Sprinkle of glitter' who's YouTube videos I've been watching for years and they praised writing a blog so much! I wanted a place where I could express my thoughts and feelings and I've loved it so far, I must admit that sometimes it feels like I'm talking to myself but I guess that's better than being watched by hundreds o people because some of m posts are a load of crap... 

And let's face it, where else can I go on about makeup, fashion and Disney and not be told to shut up? 

2) If you could only wear three makeup products, what would you pick and why?

This is easy for me because whenever in in a rush for school I use three basic products so I don't look dead.. Firstly is foundation. I know that it's not essential and an told to be confident without it but if I feel happy with how I look the likelyhood is that I'll have a good day. Second is mascara, most of the time I use two different ones because I like the brushes, one is big with loads of brissels and the other is skinny with less, stiffer brissels to spread out my lashes. I don't think I could leave the house without mascara... 
And finally is lipstick. And not lipgloss, I can't stand the stuff, I don't like the feeling at all. I prefer matt lipsticks with a bold colour, don't even know why because I rarely suit them. I'd say my most worn colour is a bright pink which I love! 

3) what is your wardrobe staple? 

Firstly I had to google the word stable so excuse me if I've got the wrong idea... I'm guessing it's like an essential piece of clothing? If so then I have 3... Number one is a good ok peplum. I think I dress for my body type rather than sticking to a particular style trend... But peplums are amazing. They hide my stomach (I hope) and I have about 6.. They're just fab! 
Second is a skater skirt, they are amazing. Once again the hide my stomach but I also love the way they can go with pretty much anything! And thirdly are my leggings/jeggings. They are just the best. I wear them pretty much every day! Yep they're fab. 

4) How would you describe your style? 

As I said in my previous answer, I don't really have a style. I dress for my body shape and basically, if I like something then I buy it. It also depends on the occasion... If I'm just in the house I will most likely be leggings and top, I I'm going out that the weekend into town shopping, it's usually a casual dress and boots. I also can't dress down.. I'll always have my jewelerry, or something fancy making me look over dressed for most occasions. 

5) What is your biggest achievement in your life so far? 

This one it me thinking.. I don't think I have one I can take from my whole life because to be honest I'm still young and not really ha the experiences I hope I have when I'm older. If I was to chose something it would be something silly or small like winning a competition in first year because I had te best sandwich in home economics, or becoming a prefect in 6th year (last year) or even one for recently which is this I got an interview for my dream university! Nothing too major, not yet anyway! 

6) What is your favourite beauty and hair product of 2013? 

My favourite beauty product is probably my Rimmle London lip crayon! It's become my most worn lipstick and it's gorgeous. I love it so much! 

My favourite hair product would probably have to be the V05 blow dry spray. It's so good! I have quite thin hair and if I've not curled/crimped it and it's not the day I've just washed it, my hair tends to be crappy. So if I'm not washing it again, like it's the day after I've just washed it, then I used this to give it a little but more life. It's honestly my life saver! 

7) What's your guilty pleasure? 

I don't know if this counts as 'guilty' but I'm in love with both Disney and musicals. For example, I recently when to see Frozen, the new Disney movie which I don't know was a musical! I've been singing the songs for about 2 weeks non stop and it give me goosebumps every time I listen to the songs! Ahhh I love musicals :D 

8) who from anywhere in the world would you like to meet and why? 

I would love to meet so many people! I'm a fangirl.. It's fab. But I couldn't narrow I down! It'll put I into catagories... Firstly, actors. I would loooove to meet the who cast of 90210. It's my favourite show and I'm so upset that it's finished:( I hope they do a reunion soon!
The youtuber I'd love to meet is the wonderful Joey Graceffa!! He is my favourite guy youtuber! He's amazing and that's pretty much all I can say because he's just so sweet, kind, caring and funny! I love that he's able to live his dream on YouTube and that that gives his a platform to become an actor, he's areadystarted his own wee series called Storytellers which you should all check out! I would also love to meet the Kardashians because I actually reall like them. So many people say they're stuck up etc but honestly, that's all you see when they're spoke about in the media etc but they're all successful, hardworking people and have got where they are today because of it. 

9) do you have an ultimate life ambition? 

My ambition is to go to The Royal Conservitoire of Scotland, finish that course as then work all over te world with different productions designing costumes as sets etc because I'm a musical freak... While being a millionaire, famous and married to Jay McGuiness! I don't want much.. 

10) is there a product that you don't get the hype about?

Yes! Babylips. They've been around for a while and they're basically lip balms. So many people I've seen had not payed any attention to them and now that outliners have said they use them, everyone's going crazy?.. They only like the name and like to think they are like the youtuber because they have the same products. They're just lip balms. Use Vaseline.. It's the shiz. 

11) What has been your most pointless purchase? 

I'd have to say my Dr. Martians. They're purple and gorgeous but I sounds stupid to say that I don't suit them.. I think you have to have a certain style to pull then off and I think they just look clumpy on me? I dunno but I've only worn then about 3 times and I've had them for since July 2 years ago.. I Gould wear them more!

Well that's all my questions answered! I hope you have either found then helpful or amusing and I'll talk to you guys soon. I promise it won't be as long as last time. 

Until next time chickaaas! ;)

Christmas prezzies!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!! It's been a while.. Yes I did miss Christmas, but I'm here now, s'all good! I hope you all had a merry Christmas with famiy and friends and that Santa was good to you this year! I thought I'd give yous a wee look at my presents.. I'm pretty happy with them if I'm honest. 

I'm not really a 'flashy' person so I'm not gonna go full on 'omg look what I got' in a bad way, just maybe slightly overexcited because I'm easily amused but this post is purely to show what I asked for and thankful my parents loved me enough to agree to the weird things on my list...

Number one was the first thing I opened and by far my favourite! 

Tah-dah!!! It's a fricken blender! Now, as you can probably tell this is the picture from the website because, frankly I'm too lazy to go into the kitchen an take a picture... And Yes, it's a strange thing to get excited about but I'm obsessed with smoothies and I thought having my own blender and spending on average £3 on fruit, juice and frozen yogurt etc it's a better way to spend my money than go into town and spend nearly £4 on one smoothie every week. So yeah, that blender will be well loved! 

Secondly are my Nike Blazers. I kinda new I was getting these for definite because my mum took me to pick them out a week before Christmas but still, she could have taken them back.. 

already had a pair of pink ones I bought with birthday money in summer costing £70 and they are my most worn/fave shoes! These ones weren't as expensive which is good but I'm still raging I spent so much last time. A new outlet nike store as opened at the top of my wee village and these Christmas present ones were only £35.. Like, are you kidding me?...
loooove them:) but I did make the mistake of wearing them for the first time with trainer socks in town for the sales and my heels are dead. Ah the blistering pain! 

Thirdly is my cute little camera! 

I am always complaining about going to concerts and having rubbish pictures from my phone so I guess I should have seen this one coming... But since in such an observing person, I didn't. But it's perfect since I have so many important concerts coming up! *cough* THE WANTED VIP TICKETS BABY!;) 

Speaking of concerts.. Lastly, I got a McBusted ticket for Glasgow!! Mcfly have been my life since the age of 6/7 and I'm now 17... That's a long time of dedication! So I was really happy with that! Saved me £45! Cheers maw and paw :)  

Lastly is my onesieeee! I could honestly live in my onesie, it's so soft and cosy and adorable! It's a reindeer! Omfg! 


guess I got my blonde hair too? Because I didn't pay for it... And it's going to be well used!...? Right?

I did get a few little things like calanders/CDs etc and chocolate... Mum, are you trying to make me fatter?...

Anyway, that's most of my things from Christmas 2013, I hope you all had a great day and obviously a great dinner! (my favourite part of Christmas!)

Until next time chickaaaass!!:) x

Christmas TV!

It's finally Christmas Eve!! And that means only one thing.. Movies! At this time of year there are so many cute movies on tv and also tv show Christmas specials! It's sad that I look forward to watching tv on a day like this but I can't help it, I like films! 

I thought I'd write a quick post telling you all my favourite films and tv shows to watch during this faaaab time!

One of my favourite movies to watch is obviously Elf! I'd hope that most of you have seen it but if not, it's about a man named Buddy who was brought up by Santa and his elves and has to go to New York City to find his birth father and start a normal 'human' life. 

Will Farrell is one of my favourite actors. He is hilarious, not even gonna lie. I've loved Elf for as long as I can remember. Me, my brother and sister sit with hot chocolate and marshmallows every year watching it with our blankets because we're cool like that! 

Secondly, The Grinch! This is such a good film! It's basically about a funny looking green guy who hates Christmas. The classic Dr. Seuss take was made into a film and the grinch is played by Jim Carrey, another one of my favourite actors. Can you tell in like comedy actors? 

Once again, I've watched this movie since I can remember every year and it doesn't even have to be Christmas for me to watch it, I love it so much! 

Another story I really enjoy at Christmas, as in sure many other do, it's Scrooge/A Christmas Carol. For many years I have loved the muppets version because it's a bit of a creepy story and that made it less traumatising so my mother says. 

Although, recently I watched Jim Carreys version and it's amazing! I'm not gonna lie, it was really jumpy at parts but I could bare it. 

I wasn't too keen on seeing it when it was released last year as it looked weird... It wasn't real looking people but it wasn't quite a cartoon. It was strange, but I eventually have in and I'm so glad I did, it will now join the annual Christmas movie tradition! 

Moving in from films, I'm a huge soaps fan! Mainly Coronation street and Eastenders. They're always full of drama, funnily enough, and the storylines supposted to be amazig! Yaaay! And who can forget DR Who?! Not really sure if that counts as a soap but I'm so excited! I'll miss wee Matt but I'm excited to see how Peter gets on, he is Scottish after all!;) 
Well, that's a few of my faves! My days set tonight and tomorrow. I hope everyone has a very merry Christmas and hope santas good to you all! Expect a Christmas present 'haul' in the new year!! 

Merry Christmas!

New year, new me!

I've fancied a change for a while now and I've only just got the guts to go for it! If you've noticed my hair at all, you'll know Im brunette. Or at least I was brunette for all of my life and this changed last saturday...

That riiiiiight, I've dyed my hair! I'm not gonna lie, I was terrified while siting getting it done in the hair dressers but know I've had it a few day I really love it! I didn't think it would make much of a difference to my appearance but apparently I look older, but I don't see it. I also look identical to my big sister Rebecca, she's like 22 or something...

I'm a PR for a club called campus and the first picture here is me with mark (one of the support acts for our X factor nights) this was 2 weeks before I dyed my hair. The other picture is the day after I dyed my hair, it even looks shorter. Me no likey! 

I really love being blonde and it didn't take long for people to crack the blonde jokes but unfortunately I don't have the cleverness to prove them wrong... Gutted. 

But yeah, if anyone is thinking of duig their hair, I recommend it! I've wanted to do it since summer and only just got round to doing it and I'm in love with it!!
