So yes my exams start tomorrow, I have a week full of exams and then it’s half term where my school is running a session each day which I will be attending! Then there are a following two weeks of exams and then I man Finnished!! I will then upload a post a week ish after! Which by then my account would have changed to being mtsepf and my YouTube and Twitter will be told I’ll then be uploading my first Video that week also! 

So yes… very excited! 

How are you or have you felt with your exams? I’m extremely nervous and have anxiety and pannik attaks so I’m really hoping I do not get to stressed and have a pannik attak! – 😬. For my grades I’m hoping for all C’s wig the exception to science cause I SUCK at that so bad! In a few of my subjects I’m getting a B and am A in so that’s made me proud 😊 what have your results been?

Nail polish review

Hey lovelies!

Long time little see, I’m a week away from my exams 😬 but had a tiny bit of time spare and just had to share this with you! 


This apsulute stunner of a nail polish! I revived it as a gift about a year ago it’s beautiful! And it may be named a Christmas shade but it’s a lovely colour for all round the year! 

As you can see the result is a flawless one! I als have a top coat on, I use the top coat from primark which I picked up for 80p!! 

I adore this so much! 

I happen you have enjoyed this brief review and hopefully it won’t be to long before speaking to you again!

All my love,

Sunset 🌅 

Hey lovelies!

I know I said that my post “the zoo” would be my last until returning un-anonymous however I have found some spare hours and couldn’t resist a quick chat with you!

I’m very keen on photography and at ever picture moment I’m there clicking away with my camera lol. However going back though all my photos, I’ve realised how big of a feature the sun is for my photographs.

I thought I’d share a few with you today…

so there are a few examples of my pictures, with the focus on the sun set. I really do enjoy looking at them, there’s something abut the sun that’s so extraordinary! I love how there’s billions of pictures taken of it from the earths surface to satellite images of the sun yet humans cant get to close to it. another example of something so beautiful and natural that could kill humans in an instant.

anyway, until next time, keep smiling and do more of what you enjoy!

The zoo! 

Hey lovelies!

How are you all doing??

Today I thought I’d share a few pictures I took when going to the zoo! I enjoy going to the zoo and seeing animals and just to mention, all the animals shown are once that have been rescued from hunting and are being protected, there given as much of their natural habitat as possible!

Anyway…..

 

so these are a few of the images I took, my fave animal is a flamingo! soooo saving the best until last, of course…..

there just adorable!!! and there PINK! and of course I didn’t leave without purchasing a flamingo keying LOL!

ah, now I’m going to go and do some revision, the next month and a few days I will not be posting as I’m about to face my real GCSE’s *insert stressed emoji face here* my next blog post may be in the May half term but if not it will be the week of Monday 19th June! so thank you for all the love a support! if you don’t hear from me in the May half term then the next time I upload it will be as me, not asprinkleofjoyyy!!! and I would have changed my site and upgraded it! it will have some new content and maybe a few videos.

anyway, until then, keep smiling and enjoying life!

Happy Easter!! And update 

Hey lovelies!

ITS EASTER (well in two days) and I wanted to wish you all a wonderful time, for some it will be a highly religious weekend with respect and honour and for others a time to eat as much chocolate as they can! But however your celebrating this wonderful time of year, I hope and wish you the greatest!

Below I have come across a cute cartoon which to some people will symbolise this time. 


UPDATE

Thanks to a many positive comments from both here and my Instagram (asprinkleofjoyyy) I have decided that in a few months time I will be un-anonymous on both here and my Instagram, I’ll also be giving my twitter to you guys! Later on if I feel I’d like to I’ll be starting up my YouTube again! I’ll give you guys my YouTube anyway as it’s the same as the rest of my accounts however I may not upload until a later date.

I’d like to add that I’m extremely exited for this change and I can’t wait to see your guys expressions and I’d be greatful for your opinions and support along the way! 

I’d also like to add that we’re close to 500 followers! CRAZY RIGHT?

Anyway I wish you all the best,

Ilya, asprinkleofjoyyy xx

YouTube!? Opinions please

Hey lovelies,

So as you all know I am here on this blog, I also have a linked Instagram (also called asprinkleofjoyyy) and I used to have a YouTube account which is still up and running but not in the same name.

In a few months I will return to this blog and become un anomalous, this means I’ll be posting like usual however you’ll know my name, and posts like outfit idea and makeup routines will have myself shown in them 😁. This also mean in my Instagram, there will be pictures of me on there also. I’ve decided to do this in a few months as I would have left school, meaning people won’t be able to get to me every day and then when I go to collage I’ll be with people that take the same interests so this won’t come as a surprise to them. 

All of that said, and coming back round to the topic of YouTube, as I said I used to have a YouTube account and I took everything down however now I’m older and I can be more of myself I was thinking of maybe starting it back up, still running this blog and my Instagram which will all like however my blog and Instagram name and profile would change 😊. 

If you could please leave your opinion in the comments as if love to but I won’t if people think it’s a dumb idea, but apart from that I’m hoping to do a ‘real’ post soon. 

Until next time,

Ilya, asprinkleofjoyyy xx

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!

Hello lovelies!

Welcome back to yet anouth randomly posted blog post, I just had a lil bit of time on my hands and thought why not aha.

So today in my country its Mother’s Day (I’m not sure if that’s the same everywhere) and I thought I’d write up a little post about my mother which will more than likely be the same as your description of your mum and most others peoples mums…..

My mum is a very strong but kind mother, she’d do anything for her children and the people who care and love for her. She fights for what she knows and feels is right, she makes mistakes (offtern quite funny as it dosnt happen a lot) but she fixes them. She dishes me up a meal every night, washes and irons my clothes, makes sure there’s food in the cupboard and tries her hardest to buy her children the world. My mum teaches me, right from wrong and the mannors that will get you far in life. My mum is a strong but kind women,         I love my mum ❤️

Go treat your mum with all you have today and don’t give it a second thought. If it weren’t for mums we wouldn’t be here on planet earth today. 

Happy Mother’s Day everyone! And until anouther randomly posted blog post pop up on your reader,

skincare routine

hey lovelies,

how are you all doing? I feel like I always tell you about myself but never ask you so I’m going to start asking you how your doing so…. how are you doing? tell me in the comments how your doing.

Anyway… so as I said in the previous post I have dry skin, and that causes for a much needed skin care routine! so today I thought id let you guys have a insight to my skincare routine. I use a number of thing which I feel works best for me.

First off I use a cleanser to get rid of all mu makeup….

img_2748

I use this Garner Micellar cleansing water, this isn’t for any particular reason, only because it was on a offer and I had some spare money and wanted to try it out. The only flaw with this is that it claims its okay for eyes however when ive used it for mascara, it stings my eyes a lot.

 

I then use some moisturiser…..

img_2749

Now for a rather long time, ive been struggling to find a foundation that will hide my dry patches however I had failed to find one. however I then came across this moisturizer and it has allowed me to wear any foundation i’d like. I have found that this makes my face rather sticky but I put it on before I go to bed so it dosnt make much difference to me. I would happily recommend this to anyone with dry skin!

And then lastly I use some blemish cream…..

img_2750

This works a treat when you either see a blemish appearing or have one. they take 3 to 4 hours to fully work and then your blemishes are gone! their great!!

 

Well I hope you have enjoyed todays post and ill most likey either be posting a Christmas makeup look, Christmas ootd or a backing post on Friday. I hope you all have a lovley build up to Christmas and I shall see you all soon.

makeup routine

Hey lovelies!

So today I broke up from school for the holidays, exiting right?! Anywayyyy, todays blog post is a collaboration with the lovely theaveragegurl! click on her name to check out her blog! Todays post, as you can probably guess from the title is a makeup routine….

Now before I get into the post, I have dry patches on my cheeks and forehead so this makeup is targeted at dryer skinned people however I also have the smallest bit of oiliness on my chin and it works great there also, so I’m sure you’d be fine if you have oilier skin.

most of these items are drugstore and as I live In the UK, their from either Boots or Superdrug. The higher end are from either Mac or Clinique. I am a wear on the touchy subject of Mac testing on animal however the items I have are either gifts or they didn’t test on animals to make it, as I do not like the fact they test on animals.

Now, for the makeup. I have somedays, like everyone else does where ill just wear primer with a touch of concealer or ill wear a CC cream. however I also have the days where I want to wear a bolder lip and a bit of mascara, this is where I feel like a foundation is needed, here is my makeup routines….

First we have to set the base with a primer…img_2754

On a day where I am wearing a base that gives coverage, I weafr the primer to your left which is the Max Factor, all day primer. this dosnt say anthin g about evening skin tone however I feel it does even mine. and on a day where id rather just wear a bit of primer and concealer, I wear the two to your right. As you can see, one is the beloved Maybelline Baby Skin instant pore erase. The other is Collections, Primed and ready. this is ‘powered’ by witch, which is a ache erasing company, I believe.

Next are my bases for the days where id like a bit of coverage….

img_2763

Now…. the Rimmel stay matt is for days where I have drama performances on stage so that the lights do not give me a dreadful glow of any type. the Bourjois CC cream is for days where I want to look natural, mainly a day to day base for school or around the house. the last one of the three is the Bourjois healthy mix SERUM, I put this in capitals as there are two types, this one is a lot more hydrating. I wear this when I want a little more coverage and am adding a lip with mascara, normally a evening look or party, maybe weekend. I blen all three listed above with my real techniques beauty blender.

For the days with a little more spots…..

img_2755

I have the one and only Collection lasting perfection, this is the dream concealer!! I also blend this in using my beauty blender.

now for the finishing touches, blusher, mascara and lips!

 

Firstly id apply my favourite blusher from Benefit, which is Sugarbomb. or Id opt for my Loreal blush, I apply my blusher with my Real Techniques blush brush. I would then apply my mascara. For a volumemized look id use my Rimmel 24hour curl and for a lengthy look id use my Newlook extreme length. Then going onto lips, I often stick to darker shades and I’m not fussy with lips, any brand will do, I just am not keen on overly glittery. But I have a few No.7 glosses, a few lippies from Mac or Maxfactor and a few crayons from Clinique.

Then sometimes ill powder but not often as it sticks to my dryer areas. If I do I use Mac studio fix powder with a real techniques powder brush.

 

Well then lovelies, that’s it for today, I hope you have enjoyed this makeup routine for what id say, three/four different occasions. and utill Tuesday, have a great week!

ilya, asprinkleofjoyyy xx
