Who’s ever been disappointed? I bet any of you reading this has been. Whether it was the concert you wanted to see was sold out, or your size wasn’t there in the dress you’ve had your eyes on for weeks. Or how about even deeper, disappointed in someones actions towards you or people getting your hopes up and then completely crashing them.

Disappointment has really become a very well known acquaintance in my life. However, I’m learning to adjust the gut wrenching stab in the heart feeling. I’m saying to myself, “Right, that’s not happening, so what do I do now to make sure We come out on top?” or “Well that wasn’t the right thing for now at least.”

I use to be sick to my stomach every time some sort of disappointment occurred and yes it does still hurt at times when something disappointing comes along, but life doesn’t always have to be like that. Acceptance. That’s key. Once you accept that there’s a better thing out there for you, or other ways to go around it, you find yourself focusing on finding new ways to get what you want in life. Life is going to keep throwing set backs at you because how boring would it be if you were handed everything on a silver platter? Trials and tribulations is what sets the men or women from the girls or boys. Gotta work for it if you want it bad enough.

I’m a very firm believer that everything happens for a reason. and I’ve ACCEPTED that. When something in life that you wanted to do is “set back” you can either

A) get so upset give up and be like everything is ruined (which is what I use to do.)


B) take is as it is and find a different way to achieve it if it’s something you really really want.

If you want something bad enough in life don’t let the disappointments torment you. Learn, grow, and work harder to get it. You’ll appreciate it more I guarantee you because when you do go through the hard times for it, you’ll be so so so glad when its in the palms of your hand.

Glitter Everywhere! 

For people who know me, I loooove makeup. Ever since I was very young, like any other girl really. I use to have to sneak makeup out and put it on at school!! Anywhosay that’s another story. I recently had my nails done by a lovely lady named Lette. She’s a beautician and very nice. I was looking through her price list when I came across “Glitter lips.” When I asked her what that was, she told me it’s a new trend where it’s simply glitter added on to your lips. It looked really cool. But to be fair it then just went out of my mind.

About a week later I came across a page called The Beauty Box Boutique. They were running a competition to win glitter kits for Glitter lips and eyes! It looked amazing. It sparkled. IT shined. I wanted some.

The company was asking for people to post pictures of eyes and lips to see if they could use for their website. So I done some looks and sent them my pictures.


To much of my pleasant surprise they liked it! We chatted more, I done some more looks and they asked if it was ok to send me some samples to do some looks and try the glitter out.

Yay!! Glitter! The package came so quickly I couldn’t wait to get started. They send me an applicator which one end was an eye sponge the other was a lip brush, four different colour glitters and the glue. I got started in making a glitter lip tutorial.

I have to say the glitter was so pretty and the application was great. I was impressed on how well it stayed on as well!! It looked great and to be honest I’m hooked.

It was the same for the eyes. Stayed in place great and didn’t irritate my skin eyes or mouth.

The Beauty Box Boutique has some amazing colors to choose from. And they don’t only do the glitter for glitter eyes and lips, they do glitter tattoos and glitter for crafts as well.

Customer service is great and the owners are extremely friendly and helpful. Head over to their Facebook and tell them Courtney Jo sent ya 😉
