I’m so sorry!

Hello,

I’m so sorry! I haven’t blogged in ages! Hopefully, I will slowly get back into it. I have been busy trying to make my youtube channel better. There will be some exciting things coming up on it soon!

Yesterday, I made my first proper thumbnail for my videos! From now on, all my videos will have proper thumbnails! If you don’t follow my Instagram you might not know that I now upload every Monday and Thursday on my youtube channel.

Don’t worry! I’m not quitting blogging I just completely forgot about it! Slowly I will be properly blogging again and eventually it will hopefully be once a week.

Just a reminder of my social media accounts:

10 things you probably don’t know about me!

Hello!

Todays blog is a bit different to my usual blogs. I thought it would be nice to do something a little bit different. I was thinking about my favourite things and I thought it would make a good blog. After a little more thinking I came up with 10 things you don’t know about me!

  1. My name is Liberty. I don’t really know why you don’t know that and when I did my about me video I completely forgot to mention what my name was! Some of you will now my name from @lucylu_yt videos but the majority of you won’t.
  2. My birthday is the 16th of August. Do any of you share a birthday with me? If you do I would love to know! Please DM me if you do! (Don’t really know why I want to know)
  3. My favourite colour is duck egg blue. I have know idea why I just think it’s a beautiful shade of blue!
  4. I am an only child.
  5. I have type one diabetes. Its not my fault its just bad luck. I will be filming a video on it soon.
  6. I am obsessed with Lush. You probably already know that but I had to include it!
  7. I love watching musicals. I was really annoyed that Charlie and the Chocolate Factory stopped performing before I got to see it. I have heard rumours that it might be touring soon though! I really want to see school of rock!
  8. I love wearing onesies. Im actually wearing one right now!
  9. My favourite TV show is Friends. Its just the best! My favourite character would probably have to be Monica.
  10. I love cushions. If my mum didn’t stop me buying them I would probably have thousands! Luckily, she stopped me and I have about 5 on my bed.

I hope you have enjoyed this blog! If you did please send me a DM on Instagram so I know to do more like this. Remember that you can subscribe to my blog and get an email every time I post!

Believing in yourself

Hi guys,

The most important thing in life to remember is to believe in yourself. I need to admit that I never believed in myself before my mum brought me a picture to hang on my wall which said ‘If you can dream it, you can do it.’

This quote was made by Walt Disney. He always thought about this quote and look how far he got! Best selling movies, his own movie company, a theme park and I could go on!

I think that if they can do it, I can do it. I now think about this quite often. I wouldn’t be doing this blog if I didn’t have these quotes. They taught me that I can do anything I want to do and I can be anyone I want to be. It has helped me be less stressed about stuff and I have achieved more.

Next time you have a big exam just think I can do it. If you want to do something, just do it! There is nothing and no-one stopping you!

Thank you so my for over 2000 followers on my instagram!

New look light jar review

Hi guys,

On this blog I am going to be reviewing the new look light jar. I am not sure if they are still in stock but they do different styles in other shops. I have seen them in Urban Outfitters before.

I love this light jar so much. It goes perfect next to fairy lights in my room. It makes the room really cosy. As you have probably noticed it is in the background of almost all of my instagram pictures!

When I don’t have the lights on it still looks really pretty. You might be wondering, how do you turn it on? Well, all you need to do is unscrew the lid and turn the switch to on. I have found that when you turn it on it moves. A bit of blue tack stopped it moving and you would never know it was there as the lid is always on apart from when you are turning it on.

If you want something cosy in your room I definitely recommend getting one. They range between £10-£20.

Don’t forget that you can now subscribe to my blog and that I now have a youtube channel!

Have you kept your New Year resolutions?

Hi guys,

I was just wondering, have you kept your New Year resolutions? I have kept one of my New Year resolutions, sort of kept another but the other two I gave up after the second day!

My New Year resolutions were:

  1. Be more active.
  2. Be healthier.
  3. Do more blogs.
  4. Get up earlier so I can do more in the day.

I guess it is good that have have kept one. Its better than none! The one I have managed to keep is to do more blogs. One thing I never expected to happen was to get over 40 views in 24 hours. For some you that probably sounds really stupid but to me thats a lot. Its even more unbelievable that I have over 810 followers on my instagram! This is why I have decided to start a youtube channel.

You might have clicked on the link to my youtube on my home page and seen that there is nothing there, don’t worry I have my first video ready and edited. It will go up soon!

I just wanted to take this chance to say thank you for viewing my blog, thank you for following me on instagram and thank you for all the kind direct messages on instagram. It really means a lot to me.

Just a reminder that you can now subscribe to my blog via email!

Zoella beauty gingerbread scent product reviews

Hi guys,

On this blog I am going to be reviewing the Zoella beauty gingerbread scent products I have. If you were to ask me what my favourite product was, I definitely would not be able to pick! I would be able to tell you what products stand out from the rest though. For me, the ones that stand out are the hungry hands hand cream, ginger shower glaze, gingerbread snap fizz relax bath fizzers and the pamper hamper.

Gingerbread bath salts:

I haven’t used this yet but I can’t wait to! The packaging is so cute and they smell amazing!

Ginger cream body lotion:

This smells amazing! It makes my skin so smooth and I love using it after a bath! The packaging is simple but effective.

Ginger shower glaze:

I love this shower glaze because it smells great and makes you smell of ginger all day whereas some shower gels the smell go’s after a few hours. It also makes me feel really fresh.

Gingerbread snap fizz relax bath fizzers:

I absolutely love these bath fizzers! They are shaped as gingerbread men and there are three in there. You get a lot for you money as there is a slit line so you can use one twice, So you get six!

Hungry hands hand cream:

This is my favourite hand cream ever! I love it so much! It makes my hands feel smooth and fresh but best of all it smells like gingerbread!

Gingerbread bath fizzer:

I haven’t used this yet but I am guessing it is going to be like the gingerbread shaped ones.

Pamper hamper:

The pamper hamper comes in a really good quality picnic basket. Inside it has pink paper strips but best of all a make up case, hungry hands hand cream, shower glaze, ginger cream, bath fizzers, bath salts and a puff sponge.

Spa in a jar:

I got the spa in the jar when the range first came out. The flannel is really soft but easy to stain so not the best flannel; still good though. I have finished the mini shower glaze but still have some body lotion left. I am now using the jar for a happy jar. If you haven’t already, go check out my blog on the happy jar!

Happy jar

Hi guys,

You are probably wondering, what is a happy jar? Well, a happy jar is a jar that you fill up with good memories.

Once a week, you write something good that happened that week for a year. Then on the 31st of December you read them all. It helps you look back on the good things in the year rather than the bad.

I think this a good idea to do as you can keep them forever and whenever you are having a bad day you can read through them and remember the good times.

It only takes a minute out of your week to do and it will fill you up with happiness when you read them.
