I'm really looking forward to spring, and all the cute clothes that come with it. Since I'm a girly girl, I love Spring colours, I love all pastels, and Spring is all about pastel, which makes me love it even more.Also, I've been shopping a lot lately, so I made a final list of stuff that I wanted, and after this I'm done with shopping, for a while. Anyway, this is my wish-list, tell me what you think?

Origins Clear Improvement Mask Review

Today, I'm going to review the much raved about Origins Clear Improvement mask. This, right here is my favourite mask and skin care product, I personally love it. After hearing so much about it, I thought I had to buy it, and so I did, and I'm really glad I did, because It has helped me get rid of my acne and has made my skin super smooth and clean.

This mask is a detox mask, it gets rid of all the dirt on your face, "Activated Charcoal acts like a magnet to crow out deep-dwelling pore cloggers, White China Clay absorbs environmental toxins, Lecithin dissolves impurities". After using this your skin feels really clean and soft.

The product itself is thick, it is unscented, so it smells like a clay mask, it obviously doesn't smell great, but that doesn't really bother me. You should steam the skin before you use this, so the pores open up for best results. The mask takes 8 to 10 minuites to dry, when it drys your skin feels tight, but not uncomfortable. To remove it, I use a (warm) wet towel, and gently rub it on my face and get rid of  all the product, then I just moisturize my face and I'm done.

The result is amazing, it leaves my skin feeling incredibly clean and smooth. My skin feels great after i use this product. It helps get rid of blemishes and breakouts, removes all dirt from the skin and clear pores. This mask is a miracle worker, I really do recommend you get this. I use this once, and sometimes even twice a week, and it keeps my skin clean and blemish free. The only down side to this mask is that its pretty pricey, however I will definitely buy this again, its worth the money, and it works like magic.

I haven't tried any other Origin products, but I really want to, so I would love to know what Origin products you recommend, please let me know down in the comments. Also tell me what mask/masks you've been loving lately? x

Benefit - Dandelion Face Powder Review

Benefit Dandelion face powder is a highlighter/blush, it is soft pink with a touch of golden shimmer, this shade is unique and looks quite lovely. This is mostly just used as a highlighter, because the pink is quite light, but I use it as both.

I do admit, the pink is very light, and you have to put it on at least twice for it to be completely visible, this puts me off it a little, however once you've got multiple coats on, it looks really lovely, it looks natural and flattering. I really like it, because of its unique colour, and, because it is a very natural shade of pink, I like blushes that are on the lighter side and that look natural, thats why I like it and I tend to use this a lot too.

There is also a lot of product in the box, so even though its a little pricy, it will last a while. The packaging is cute, but nothing special. It comes with its own brush, the brush is soft and easy to use. 

The only thing about this that I don't like, is the fact that you have to apply it at least twice for it to be visible, other than that I think its a great blush and highlighter.

Staying Positive ♡

Today, I wanted to talk about positivity, and staying/being positive. Life is full of stress and problems, but you shouldn't let these problems take over your life. Its okay to feel sad sometimes, but you can't let sadness take over your life. Its not easy, changing your attitude to a positive one, and it doesn't happen within seconds, it takes time.

Whenever I feel down, I like talking about it, I normally call up a friend, and tell her how I feel,  it's good getting it out of your system, and once its out forget about it. It also really helps to listen to music and watch a funny film.

How to stay Positive:

1) Don't stress and overthink things: Its important to let things pass, and take them as they come. Don't keep thinking about something you can't control, like school for example. Little things can also help, like in the morning think a positive thought, and tell yourself It'll be a good day.

2) Change your lifestyle to a healthy one: Eat healthy, exercise, and once in a while treat yourself. You'll start feeling more fresh and active once you start living a healthy lifestyle, you will also feel better about yourself.

3) Be around people you like: Be around your friends and family, stop spending time with people you dislike, spend time with your true friends, who you can trust and be yourself around.

4) Keep yourself busy: Ge involved with some new activity or club, something that you enjoy doing and can look forward to. I really enjoy writing, so I started blogging which I really love doing now. You can also keep yourself busy, by learning new things (e.g. new language, subject/course).

5) Fix your problems: Sometimes instead of crying or getting angry and upset, you can find ways to fix your problem, and if not forget about it, life goes on.

I'll leave you with 4 of my favourite 'positive pictures':
