Goodbye 2015, Hiya 2016

Hello everyone!

I'm feeling quite sad as I write this because Christmas is officially over, it's now New Year's Eve and then it's 2016 and before you know it, it'll be Christmas again, but sadly it's no longer Christmas. I honestly have no idea where this year has gone, so much has happened and it feels like it was Christmas 2014 was just yesterday and I don't know how to feel about it. 

 I feel sad because 1) it's not Christmas anymore and 2) it was literally 2014 about a minute ago. However I am looking forward to 2016 when I'll be more focused on blog writing (get this - regular posts!) and I'll also be launching my beauty business (properly) that I will be running from home alongside working full time. I'm really excited about that because a) I've wanted to run a blog for ages and next year I'm going to put my all into it and b) I've had a Beauty-4-U for ages but have never had any motivation to do it properly. But this time it's going to be different and I'm going to put 100% into everything, even doing my hair in the morning, because when do I ever bother putting an effort into my hair? The answer is bascially never.

From selfies, to Berlin, to Amsterdam, to Christmas, to college girls, parties, to birthdays, to Chris and my family and Kaiser, here's some of my fave pictures and memories from 2015 (in no particular order) as shown to you via the power of Instagram photos.

 I hope all of you had a lovely Christmas and I wish you all the very best for 2016. xxx
 

 See you all next year, and may your 2016 be the worlds best time!

10 THINGS YOU MIGHT WANT TO KNOW ABOUT STUDYING BEAUTY THERAPY

Hello everyone!

I've been feeling quite nostalgic recently about college, it's been a whole seven months since I left college and I miss it. I really do miss it. Working in a salon is not the same as learning at college and I would do about ten more years at college if I could get a massage and a facial every single week, I'd be living the dream. So I thought I'd share with you what you might want to know about studying beauty therapy....
(ft some of my fave pictures of me and the collage gals, and then just some major throwbacks!)

1. Your homework will include things such as 'growing hair'. In ALL areas. Sorry boys.

2. It will be a predominately female environment and there will be some moments in the first year, but you'll gerenally get over it in the second year.

3. You will become very close with your fellow classmates as you will have to see parts of them that you definitely wouldn't see if you were doing any other course... err hello bikini-line waxing.

4. If you master the art of epilation you will master the world... well basically.

5. People might look down at you when you say you're studying beauty therapy, but you'll get used to it.

6. You'll also find yourself telling people that there is deffo loads of science involved - and actually there is. Oh anatomy and physiology, I really don't miss you.

7. Beauty isn't just make-up and nails... there is SO much more to it then you could ever imagine.

8. When you study massage you technically can have a nap in your lesson when it's not your turn to work, which is always a wonderful thing - just make sure you work first!

9. Beauty Therapy opens the doors to sooooo many oppurtunities, hello salon, hello spa, hello mobile and oh, hello cruise ship? Yes please.

10. You are going to have the best job in the world, and making people happy is the most rewarding thing.

 I love my job and I'm so happy that I've found what I want to do with my life as a proper adult, scary.

Hope you enjoyed this post!
