Right guys, before I get on with this day’s post… I’m going to share this beautiful lady with you guys, she’s a fellow redhead and blogger!

She’s been using the Moodstruck Fiber Lash+ Mascara and absolutely adores it. I want you to see how impressive the new mascara stick is and how easily and effortlessly it is applied on an every day basis.

It’s been a very lazy girl day for me.

All I’ve done is do a little networking on Twitter, do some work for Younique and mess around on the internet. Sat on my little butt, listening to Planet Rock and talking with my Mr as he’s had the day off, being ill and what not. Bless his furry face.

Oh, I also applied to some Apprenticeships and some courses for Hairstyling and Beauty. I’m wanting to do both. I can see it being SO much fun, useful and relevant to what I adore.
Tomorrow is my day at work, and I hope that when I arrive home to relax after, Mr Postman will have been and my things will have arrived.

Let’s hope! Cross my fingers and toes.

Have a happy Monday! xoxo

Younique Cruelty Free Makeup Brand



I’m a big, huge, passionate lover of the creative life and everyone should love what they do!

My examples of my oh so creative life:

  • Hairstyling, that’s a career I’ve just embarked on
  • Started embracing my creative flair and painting glass, making jewelry
  • Recently became a YouTuber and started with tutorials (hair/makeup/style)
  • Photography, gosh I love it! I’ve been doing this since I was about fourteen. (?)
  • I attempt to journal now and again
  • Scrap-booking (another now-and-again hobby.)

SO, I’ve taken myself on board with the Younique makeup team:
They do their outright best to be cruelty-free, gluten-free and cater as vegan, but most definitely inspirational, wide ranged, ambitious and a free spoken brand.


From a glossy lip look, matte lip stains, to pigment powders to customise your looks, to all of the brushes you need and our most demanded and most popular product from the formation of the company to this current day: the Moodstruck  3D Fiber Lash Mascara!




These are just a very few select option of examples I’ve chosen for you guys to look at.

In the next coming two weeks, I’ll have tutorials, both in the magical form of collage/YouTube videos on my channel showing you what you can achieve, from natural looks to a glamorous, evening look or something a bit more grunge inspired… It’s totally up to you!
If you leave me lots of feedback and comment on my tutorials, it’d be GREAT, as then I can take the idea you’ve put out there and do it for you, so to make life a LITTLE BIT easier for you and to save you time. 

As soon as I get my presenting kit, I’ll be able to gather everyone’s orders on my majestic online Younique personal account and post your goodies OR, if you join my Facebook group, you can ask me via comment or messenger.

You can send me an email:

But for now, I’ll record and pen what you’d like to get yourself to treat yo’ self in my journal/notepad/pad/little black book… whatever you guys call it!

SooOoo, don’t forget to:

Adios my lovelies, and goodnight. (It’s always late evening somewhere in the world!)
Yours truly, Coral xoxo

Lazy Girl Curly Pony Tutorial

SECOND TUTORIAL OF MINE! Now available to watch on my channel. If you subscribe, you’ll be able to see updates on my channel and anything I post.

It’s one for the ‘lazy girls’ out there… Let me explain it a little:
I’m a lazy girl. There’s lazy girls all over the planet. We are the best girls out there. We cannot be a**ed to be. We are the ones with the messy buns, the quick application of mascara and slick of lipstick and we’re on the move, onto our adventures. We’re mostly late. We just want to sit in our pajamas with our partner’s or our pets (if you have them) and go online and order Pizza or pick up some confetti sprinkled doughnuts from the nearest supermarket. We don’t want to exercise, even if we know we should fit it into our daily routine.

We just don’t want to!

So that’s the perfect picture I’ve painted, which I think describes on point, what the ‘lazy girl‘ is in definition.

We love to rock the messy bun, wild hair or just do a quick curl here and there.
That’s what I’m giving you in my video. To add a little somethin’ something to you ponytails.

Remember to subscribe to get the latest, and to comment and give me any tips or love.


ALSO, my business cards that I designed, have arrived, finally!
It came with a silver business card holder/protector and the proportions are just perfect for how I envisioned them to come out. Super happy with them and can’t wait to start handing them out to people.


Have an amazing Thursday/Friday!

My first YouTube video: Quick and Easy Bun Tutorial

Who knows why I recorded this. I blame Jenny from my work place! But because I blog and do hairstyling and am starting my appointments off this week, I thought it’d be the perfect oppurtunity to do this.

Now you, my fellows readers, can put the name to the face.

This is me. Yes, I sound silly, I’m not great with words, but I am now here, on YouTube to give people easy tutorials and makeup tips, and the imaginable and inevitable: Anything on hair, styling, makeup and sometimes gaming/my crafts.

So, enjoy my first tutorial and please, please leave me a comment, to give me feedback. I want to become a better YouTuber and blogger and all in all, craftswoman.

The Life of MMORPG’s: Mainly a story of Ultima Online

UntitledMMORPG’s are slowly disintegrating. This makes me so, so sad.

Today I’ve been researching different MMORPG’s from the 1990’s to present. Not deeply researching, but seeing what other games are about and what they offer the players.

The ones I’ve played before:
Ultima Online (First MMORPG, bacn when I was nine years old. I still play it today.)
World of Warcraft
Guild Wars 2
Final Fantasy Online

I’ve come across some great games, that I’ve never even played before:
Rift (Currently downloading.)
Eve Online (A more Scifi based MMORPG.)
The Repopulation
ArcheAge (I wish my laptop had better specs to run it and play!)
Shroud of the Avatar (Producers of Ultima Online, hell to the yes.)
Mabinogi (An Asian based cutesy but all the same looks appealing, sort of game.)

I’m quite gutted that I can’t play World of Warcraft, Tera, Final Fantasy or GW2 on my laptop. I did get tio play them on my Brother’s gaming computer for a while though, I still have the characters. I’d recommend Final Fantasy and Tera for sure.

If there’s any of my readers here that don’t know of, haven’t played or never even heard of Ultima Online; It was released in 1997. It’s had it’s furthere developments and expansion packs.. but the Second Age, was the best out of them all, in my opinion.
Ultima Online sets you up with your character, male or female. You create your name, it can be whatever you wish it to be (I’d hope you wouldn’t be vulgar with the name choice).
You decide whatbase skills you’d like for the character, these are:
Blacksmith, Warrior, Mage, Archer, there’s so much more, like I said, these are just the base templates.
You can makew your own template: You have your crafting skills (my preference) like your tailoring, mining, lumberjack, cooking, blacksmithing, fishing and many more.
Your other skills: Scribing, anatomy, potion making, magic book crafts, musicianship, taming, hiding and stealth, animal lore, camping, and more.
Then your combat skills: archery, paladin, wrestling, swordsmanship, necromancer, mage, healer, fencing.

Then, the majoirty of the time (depending on what shard you choose to play) you will choose where you want to start off (example, the towns): Britianna, Yew, Moonglow, Minoc, Skara Brae, Luna, Ilshanaer. Each town has its own upside depending on what your profession/skills are or where you just want to settle and build your house (yes there’s housing, too.)
So, you’re placed into the chosen town, you then are equipped with your starter items. Again, it all depends on what shard you play (if it’s a cheat shard or an original shard) and your profession. Your character will be started off with normally, 500g (gold), a dagger (has many uses: skinning material, making kidling from trees etc), an empty book, a candle and some clothing. The absiolute basics.
Your’re then left to it, and can explore the world, be a terror and try and kill other players (PVP/Player killer), start making money by upping your skill in your craft, slay monsters, help other players and join together to empty dungeons, or… steal.

Okay, so that’s the basics of starting off.
Here are my favourite attributes of U.O:

The playerbase
Creating and joining guilds/Guild wars
Having my own house/castle
Crafting my own equipment (Clothing, weapons, food and selling).
Being able to buy a ship
The choice of crafting skills
The storyline if you want to follow the roleplaying side of it
How friendly it is/funny things can turn out
The banking system
Being able to create own shard/work for a shard as GM/Admin

I’ll forever love U.O! You guys who haven’t played it, should have a crack at it, here’s some vital links:

Downloading the game:

  1. To load the game, you need to download either UOS or Razor. So search on your chosen search engine!
  2. Then you will have to look for a shard URL and port code, so you’d search on your search engine for ‘Top Ultima Online shards’ then choose. Obviously, the most popular will be the best, you’ll want others players to be on, plenty of, otherwise, it can get pretty lonely on there.
  3. Make sure the client updates properly.
  4. You can either join the free shards or join U.O on their official website free, for 14 days, as a trial.

So, I hope you do join!
Also, is there anyone out there reading this, that does plau Ultima Online or used to? OR, recommend some MMORPG’s that you love to play and think I’d like to try out.
Comment under the post and I’d love to chat to likeminded MMORPG lovers!

Hair Show – End of Year Show

Fun was being had this past week. I’ve had the excitement of the hair show, getting ready for it and developing my skills in show work, perming, then getting a tip and a distinction for doing a client’s colour.

11295923_10153027313497946_4645547902794273304_nI love doing hair for shows, it’s so exciting to me. I love the busy nature of it, and making the person feel special. Making new found progress for the theme and seeing it walk down the walk for people to judge and see. I love the makeup application process, the deciding what the model will wear, and how they’ll pose and stand whilst showing the work.

Other than the Final Hair Show, my weekend has been spectacular.
Luke had yesterday (Monday) off for Bank Holiday, so we had a longer weekend to spend together. We had the most relaxing weekend to date, but god did we make pigs of ourselves. Glutton. We made the cheesiest spaghetti and meatball plate ever, made the sickliest (Bruce Bogtrotter from Matilda ) inspired cake. Then many more foods and drinks.

We had fun though, don’t get me wrong at all.

We watched the Eurovision Song Contest, played FarCry together, I sucked at it. You wouldn’t need to know me to know that I’m god awful at shooting games.

He went back yesterday evening. Cannot wait for his return on Friday eve. Weekends are the time I look forward to the most, seeing that cheeky face.

I hope you all have a special week!

Quite the journey

I’ve been so busy, once again, as always. I apologise for my absence on here!

Work, college, travel and the other half, all together as a combination, eat up my time. I’m lucky though to have such a understanding and handsome guy by my side, that makes me feel as sane as I can be. My family have helped a great amount too.

There’s been a range of ups and downs since I did post last:

The one main factor I’ll be throwing out here is Hairdressing and how I’m getting on with that aspect of my life.
Currently, it’s going beautifully. Just not as beautifully as you could imagine.
I’ve had some struggles and some highlights. I’ve learnt and a lot and then other days have finished and I feel I’ve not learnt a single piece of information.
I’ve passed every single theory exam (bar one) and achieved top grading (distinctions) for things I didn’t expect I would, making me a happy lassy. However there’s practical assignments that I have yet to be marked on, and those particular ones are the hardest for me at this moment in time.
We only have six weeks until our class completes the course! It’s all stressful, but the fun kind of stress.

I got myself my first interview at a salon; It’s a super quirky, medium-sized, trendy and inspirational salon based in Nottingham. I aced the interview (which happened to turn out to be the most unique and fun interview I’ve had of my many interviews!), ended up doing the most fun-filled, challenging trial ever
Then I receive a callback for another trial in the Loughborough based salon of there’s. For some bazaar reason, when I’d finished at the second trial, I knew myself that I hadn’t gotten the job.

The day after I receive a gut-wrenching email, explaining that I’d not got the place but I was actually very close to getting the position. I immediately asked the salon HR that emailed me, for some advice, I got the advice. It was heartwarming.

So yes, this event got me down for around a week. I was disappointed in myself and felt almost useless. I considered giving my dream up and going into Admin/HR, give up on the career path I’d chosen.
I knew this would be too much; my family, especially my Mum and also Luke helped me see this, clearly. Thank god for them! 

I picked myself up from this messy, emotional and self-pitying lump and put my confident, self-motivated head on and chose not to give up.
I’m so glad I did this.

A few points:

  1. You certainly have knock-backs before you get the job you want.
  2. Those that truly love you are there for you, through thick AND thin.
  3. Challenge yourself.
  4. Don’t be a quitter.

Then there’s myself and Luke:
Our togetherness is just as amazing as it always has been.
I’m never been so happy and felt so special to be with someone, ever in my life.
He treats me so lovely that it scares me sometimes.
He is great at giving me these pictures in my mind of what I could be, be it next week, next year or five years down the line. He’s been helping me a lot these past few months, even with him being so busy with his own new job.

So i’m on my journey to going UP. Not down or backwards.

I’m using the best of my abilities to finish this college course, gain my confidence in my skills, earn money and save all at the same time. And I know I can do this. I’m just not going to GIVE UP.

Things that I’m happy about since my previous post:

  • Luke’s new job: I’m happy that he’s going forward, earning well earned money as a Graphic Designer. We’re both pleasantly surprised at how quickly he obtained a Graduate job.
  • My Brother getting his first paid job, in IT at a woodworking company.
  • My improvement in my hair styling skills and my confidence.
  • This weekends plans and Luke’s birthday.
  • Ideas i’m coming up with.
  • Mine and Luke’s future plans.
  • LIFE. 

Also, if you’d like to help me out, I’m selling garments I no longer wear/have worn once and also selling/advertising my skills (digital art/photography/writing): – Purchase my creative skills – Buy that special piece of clothing you may need/desire.
