"You're too Quiet!"

"You're too quiet" "Why don't you talk much" "You need to be louder"

These are all comments that I here aimed at me on a regular basis and to be perfectly honest. I am sick of it. You never hear people telling loud people that they talk too much and are being serious about it. People think that being quiet and not very talkative is some kind of flaw that needs to be fixed and as a result often try and get me up to do crazy things as an attempt to try and make me 'come out of my shell'  
A perfect example of this is pulling me up to do karaoke when I'm at parties. They think if I do this, I will be a more confident person when in actual fact I am quite confident, but I am content with being quiet. I don't think that I have to make conversation just to make conversation or to fill the silence and I don't think that every time there is a silence it is suddenly and 'Awkward Silence'. My friends are very loud and outgoing people and the biggest observation I have made (because I can be in their presence without feeling the need to talk) is that whenever there is no talking or conversation happening within the group it is suddenly awkward. Why is that? I have no idea, but it irritates me, because they try an make me feel like I have to make conversation, just so they can hear some form of the English language. 
With all that being said, I am a shy person. I know I just said that I am confident, but around new people or people I don't know very well I am extremely shy and it takes a while for me to warm up to them, but in that time I am still very content with staying quiet.
 A misconception about shy and/or quiet people that really REALLY frustrates me, is the fact that people often confuses this as people who are socially awkward and boring. I am not boring and I am not socially awkward. I can be a lot of fun and I know how to talk and interact with the human species, it's just that I don't have an interest in anything some people like to talk about. When I find some kind of common interest with a person, then BAM! I can and will most definitely talk and who knows, maybe throw in a couple jokes throughout, that may or may not be funny, but either way this is not the description of a boring or awkward person. 
Although I can be shy, I am not anti social and this is the next big, insulting misconception people make about me. They think that because I don't join in on group conversations that are about things I know nothing about, that I am anti social and don't like the interaction and company of other people, when this couldn't be any further from the truth. I do like being in other peoples company and just because I'm quiet and content, doesn't mean that I sit at home in the dark all by myself, fearing and being paranoid about coming into contact with another human.
The final reason I am quiet and don't talk much, which is probably very true for many people like me.Is that ...
Maybe  I just don't like you.

Review on Lancome Teint Miracle


Lancome Teint Miracle.

For the past 3 or so years I have been scouring every pharmacy and store that sells makeup looking for a foundation that would cover my many imperfections. Like majority of teenagers I do suffer from the more than occasional spot and no matter how much I tried, I could never find a foundation to cover them. That was until now. I tried 'Teint Miracle' from Lancome in the colour Natural Light. It covered just about everything that I didn't like about my skin and any thing that it didn't I could easily enough cover with a concealer. Another great thing about it, is that it is SPF 15. Who doesn't love a multi-purpose item.

While doing a little bit of research I found out that the creators of this foundation researched the light of the inner skin and then re created it to make the foundation. Basically this means that it enhances the skins natural light. This product is also non irritating so it doesn't cause breakouts.

The foundation comes in a pump glass bottle, so all you need is one pump and it's enough to cover the whole face. My regime when using this is fairly quick and simple.
  • Moisturise
  • One pump of Teint Miracle (I then just rub it in with my fingers as I find it easier)
  • Conceal
  • Blusher & Bronzer
  • Powder
I can't recommend this product enough. When I apply it the way that I just mentioned, my skin looks 95% better. There is still the odd spot or so that it just doesn't cover, but overall I am happy with my skin after using it. It also leaves your skin looking natural and not cakey and horrible.I picked mine up at Myer, but can not remember the price I paid for it (the Lancome website says that it's 40 US dollars) I would definitely recommend this to anyone without a doubt.

*While this foundation worked for me and my skin, I can't say that it will for everyone's  My skin type is combination, so it is oily around the top of my forehead and down my nose, but dry on my chin and the sides of my nose. This works more than fine for my skin type. :)

What's in my Room?

I say you can tell a lot about person from their room

Are they:

  • A Slob
  • A Neat Freak
  • Quirky
  • Organised
  • Stylish
So what better way for people to get to know me than go on a scavenger hunt in room and pull out my most interesting or pointless items that I have collected over the years.

So You may now know a little bit about me. That I like old fashioned/vintage things, although I find it hard to find any vintage things around where I love. Love everything red and pink. Love travel and the world. I have never been overseas and am dreaming of the day I can finally go. I am a lover of makeup and beauty. I don't have much now, but am working on my collection and finally I absolutely love love LOVE to watch TV (I was born to watch 'Pretty Little Liars')
