im seriously considering

jacking this all in, iv had so much neg feed back on youtube atm that i jus feel like why bother.. i only make videos to help people, its of no personal gain to me, yet everytime i log onto youtube recently i find messages off people criticising me and its not even constructive, its just hurtful. i just dont see why people feel the need to tell me stuff like this, and while i find it very difficult not replying and saying things back i know it wouldnt make me feel better and it would just take me down to their level. Ugh it makess ya feel kinda crappy.
so anyways i'm thinking of stopping youtube for a while, it takes guts to put videos up and this has completely knocked my confidence.
rant overrrr, il carry on with blogging as much as i can, this weeks pretty busy though - so many deadlines! cant wait to be off for christmass :)

just to kind of let you know whats going on atm :)

i have so much that i'm excited about!
im starting my new job tomorrow at a clothes shop, its taken a while to get everything sorted but i finally got my start date this weekend, and, although it means some very early starts (5.30am anyone?) the pay/perks are pretty good, so expect a few more haul posts in the future :) i know iv already started my wishlist. Also, i mentioned this in a post a while ago but, as im going to have money i think i'm probably going to start collecting and putting items into a competition prize, i have so many loyal followers and subscribers on here and on youtube you all deserve some sort of thanks! if you could comment below on what sort of things you'd like to see i'd reaally appreciate it.. i'l put up a more detailed post closer to the time i'm guessing :)

Im also starting a new fashion project in which im going to make dress and a pair of wings, im so looking forward to getting started iv been collecting tons of inspirational images; im mainly looking at the fall 08 runways as im really feeling the gothic vibe atm :) iv only done one sort of illustration so far, but it kind of gives an idea of what i want to create;

i got the MAC holiday eyes palette "smoke and mirrors" yesterday so expect a review, looks and swatches post within the next few days, can i just say though its extremeeelyy gorgeous, sometimes i find when i really look forward to buying things like this i can be dissapointed in the product when i finally get it.. this is not one of those timesss ;).

and lastlyyy, as treat tomorrow after work my mums taking me to a CCO (cosmetics company outlet) hello discounted MAC! :D

p.s. im on such a blogging buzz atm, so sorry for all the posts in the last few days!

Organized at last..

After seeing bubblegarms recent post showing how she arranged all her jewelery etc. , it looked so pretty and nice, and after looking at the mess of stuff in my own room, i decided it was time for me to get organized! First place i knew i needed to clear was my overflowing makeup draws, i just realised what a state it was in.. seriously i had makeup in there, never used, that was atleast a couple of years old! it's shameful!

so... after a couple of hours work - the final result..
