1 Year Blogging Anniversary - 28.05.2015...

Hey guys, I can't believe it's been a year since I started blogging. I have achieved so much, and my blog is still growing. I know I post rarely, but I just am bad at time-keeping skills and I have had so much coursework to complete because I am in Year 10. (And my computer has been broke. The blogger app is not the best for Iphone.) Excuses, excuses...

I would just like to say a big thank you to everyone of my followers, I have 46 followers on my Bloglovin' account which is just amazing, I remember when I reached 10 and I was screaming so I am bursting inside.

This is the photo that made me start to fill and pluck my eyebrows.
The only people that know about my blog is my sister, this is because if my phone is dead and I see something amazing to take photos of I use hers. I have two sisters so I can't say she is the number one because they both are along with my brother, but seeming my other and sister and her twin brother is five - I don't think they will understand what a blog is.

My blog has came along so much, I remember I was so negative. I would always think that I was too young and nieve to be blogging, but everybody was so accepting. Even on twitter now, when I am abit clueless about something, someone always helps. Which I think is such a lovely environment to be associated with.
See? My new visable and TAMED eyebrow! ๐Ÿ˜‚

As you all know, I am 15 years old and I do have a passion for makeup especially. I am happy to say since I have started to blog my makeup collection has grown alot, and I cannot go now without checking out Superdrug and Boots - just to look but always come out with something.

I try to portray my personality through my blog posts, and I hope I do come off a nice person. Obviously you never fully understand someone because there is alot bloggers keep to themselves, but I feel I do include as much about me as I possibly can. I am still keeping this blog quite to all my friends and family because teenagers that don't understand why bloggers like to blog can be cruel, I don't mind people I haven't met, just people I know. It scares me abit.

Thank you all so much for following my blog, I hope to see you in the comments. If you are new to Blushingly Blonde why don't you follow and keep updated with my posts (which is rarely but I am trying to get better - honestly).

Thanks Again,

Henna Tattoo and My Experience.

Hey guys, I've wanted a Henna Tattoo for ages - ever since they were all over Instagram! I didn't know where to get one so just put it on my bucket list and sort of accepted I'd probably never get one! Until... Me, My mum and Sister were walking around Liverpool and I saw a small 'hippy' shop that advertised they sell Henna and apply it for an extra fee.

My mum paid for mine as a treat, I think it was around £7. The henna lasted about 2 weeks, which I was overly happy about because I thought it would only last 7-9 days. 
Disclaimer: I am very pale so the henna was a light colour, if you have a darker skin tone the colour of the henna stain will be darker. 

I decided on a floral design for the top of my hand and just onto my wrist. I really liked the design and loved it when the man was applying it.
This is just after the henna paste had been applied. I was sat on the shop floor waiting for my sister to get hers. To be honest I really liked the colour of the paste and wished the stain was that colour.

I left the paste on over night! (I slept with my hand in a sock, so the paste did not fall off all over my bed)

This is what it looked like the morning later, yes I know it's not the best photo. I loved the design, and the colour grew on me throughout the day. 

Half a week later; it was still going strong. This is a very bad picture - so I am very sorry! 

The henna on the fingers faded first, then the main flowers and leafs. The last to fade was my thumb and the leaf near my wrist. 

As you can see it faded kind of wierdly but that's okay!

I don't regret having it done and I would defiantly have another one.

Have you had a Henna Tattoo? What type of design would you have?

I am going to do a birthday haul when I have seen all my family. I will see them at different times in the week so I'll save everything for one post! Or you may be tired of seeing Birthday Hauls. Hahah.

Getting to know me - Leah'xo

Hey guys, I have been writing BlushinglyBlonde since May last year but to be honest I don't think I have given anyone the chance to get to know me. I think this is because I didn't want anyone from school or my family to know about it. Now l don't mind because I have over 30 followers which takes time and a lot of effort to get a blog up and running. I love blogging and to me its not about getting famous and free samples. To somebody that does not write a blog they may think 30 followers is not much because they don't respect the effort it takes but for me I couldn't believe it and I am so thankful.

Anyway, I wanted to start of this year with a clean slate. I want everyone to get to know me so overall everyone can have a better experience when reading my blog. I am going to put a lot more time and effort into my blog so starting off I am going to answer some questions...

1. Brief Summery About You!
My name is Leah, I am 14 years old (15 in 19 days!!) I live in England and have an amazing family and group of friends that I would do anything for. I am in Year 10 and have started doing my GCSE's which is a shock to my system but I am finding them OK and actually quite fun.

2. Why did you start a blog and how did you come up with the name?
After becoming obsessed with youtube I really wanted to start a youtube channel, but knowing that I really did not have the confidence (or the equipment) I started to create a blog. My blogs name was originally LeahsBeautyLife or something along the lines of that๐Ÿ™ˆ. After a while I started feeling a bit down about the name because everybody else's blogs had such inspirational and creative names. So (as you do) I googled it and read a good article - after a week of thinking I came up with BlushinglyBlonde. Because I am blonde and I have a bit of a problem with blusher, it's my favourite makeup product.

3. Something you love? 
Well this is an easy one! Something I love is making an effort. Not for anyone for yourself. Some people do forget to do this sometimes. "Who you makin' an effort for?" Thats probably the most annoying thing ever when you put on a bit of lipstick. I can't speak for adults but I know this is the case for teenagers. I love walking the shop feeling like I'm on a catwalk, hahah! Who doesn't? 

Thank you for reading - What do you love?

New Years Resolutions | Leah'xo

Hey guys, HAPPY NEW YEAR!! 

2014 has been an amazing year, I hope 2015 will be the same! I know people dislike it when people are like 'New Year - New Me' but honestly I am making changes this year. I have a few resolutions. Do you have any New Year resolutions? 

Mine are 
1. To become more active and healthy. Last year I tried and tried to diet and eat health but actually never went through with anything long term. By long term I mean more than 2 days. Hahaha. But becoming more active will help my determination!

2. To blog more!! Honestly if you have been here from the start you will have probably recognized that I didnt upload very often! I was very limited with technology, but now I have an Iphone as you can probably tell my contents will be more frequently and better.

There are my two resolutions. I only have two because I want to focus on them two alone. 

Thanks for reading - have you made any resolutions?

Orginally uploaded 01/01/2015 but had a spelling mistake so is edited. So it'll probably pop up near the top of my blog:/
