On the 27th of September 2016, The Ciara Chronicles turned one. One! That means that I stuck at something for one whole year without giving up on it. If my younger self saw what I’ve just written there, she would be appalled because she was such a driven person who was determined to succeed at anything she’d try. But my present self, a person who’s battled with her mental health for a number of years, is so proud to have finally kept something up for longer than a couple of weeks. A blogging milestone has been reached!
Hello everyone and welcome back to another review of some of the products I received at the Deise Bloggers event back in August. I apologise for how long it’s taking me to get through everything but when you’ve got a full time job and other commitments, blogging sometimes has to take a halt. I’ve been dying to write this post as I will be reviewing the Art Deco Most Wanted Contouring Palette and the Sleek Make-Up Dancing till Dusk Palette. These two products have become the most used items in my make-up bag since the event. Keep reading to find out why!
Hair, hair, hair! For the last couple of years, my hair is all I think about. My friend once pointed out to me that when I get down in the dumps, I tend to change my hair. It’s my way of doing something to lift my mood and in the past, I’ve done quite dramatic things to my locks. I went through a phase one summer of dying my hair different colours almost every two to three weeks, then a couple of months later, I decided to chop it all off. Hair grows! But one of the reasons I decided to cut it all off was because it was in awful condition. I thought that I may as well start again since as I said, it grows.
I love getting the time to play around with new make-up products because it allows me to get my creativity juices flowing. At the Deise Bloggers event, we received a couple of bits and bobs from the sponsors to try out and that’s exactly what I did last weekend. You may have seen the two selfies I posted on my Facebook and Instagram last Saturday and Sunday, but if you haven’t keep reading to find out what they turned out like, what I used and how I like to accentuate different parts of my face.
Hi everyone! As you know, I’ve not been feeling myself over the last few weeks and because of feeling that way, I’ve not been up to blogging at all really. After writing my last post I have been feeling a good bit better, even if everything isn’t 100% or resolved, but I feel like I can write again. I’ve got loads of blogs to write and publish over the next few weeks, mostly reviews of the products from the goody bags we received at the Deise Bloggers event last month and I’m going to start with my skincare one today.
If you’ve been following my Facebook page or my Snapchat, you may have seen that I attended the Deise Bloggers “Mad Hatter Tea Party” in aid of Pieta House on Sunday, August 7th in the Kazbar, Waterford. The event was the second blogger event that I have attended and it was absolutely amazing! It was great to see all of the bloggers from Waterford, learn a number of skincare, make-up and hair tips and of course, have a tea party! Unfortunately, I completely forgot to save my pictures from my Snapchat story but luckily, Blathnaid from Wildflower Diaries was on hand with her camera and took gorgeous photographs of the day. Keep reading to find out what went on during the event…
It’s been over two months since I started my personal training sessions with Russell Fitness and honestly, I have no idea where the time has gone! I’ve had my ups and downs in the past couple of weeks as we all know, but each time I picked myself up and got back on the horse again. In these past few weeks, I’ve also had a couple of revelations which I believe are things that people need to be aware of when starting on a healthy eating/losing weight/fitness journey, and that’s what today’s blog post is going to be about!
