Hayley's Top 3 Tips To Help Your Creativity

Hi Bunnies.

Creativity to me is all about self expression. I use my creativity to express my feelings and emotions as i am a sensitive person. When i am creating something, i channel all of my energy into it. This gives my busy mind something to focus on and temporarily it goes unusually quiet (hooray!).

I've always been creative ever since i was a child (and it runs through my blood too) i think it's because i've always found the world a overwhelming place and creativity allows me to express how i feel towards it.

My mind is scattered and i get the best ideas at the most inconvenient of times (thanks brain!) whether it's 3am and i can't sleep or when i'm in the bath/shower. However i've learnt to accept my creative mind exactly how it is and adapt to how it works.

I encourage you who ever is reading this to do this as well. It's no good to compare yourself to other artists. Everybody works different and personally i just have to wait until the creativity wave hits me right in the face. Lovely!

So here are my top 3 tips to help you with your creativity :)

Top 3 Tips To Help Your Creativity

1. Keep a record of your ideas

What helps me is keeping a little note book at the side of my bed with a pen. If i get a idea early hours of the morning, then i write it down and start the project at a convenient time

Another way of recording ideas (which is much quicker) is using a voice recorder which i have on my IPhone 5.

2.Take a break if a creative block comes your way. 
Creative blocks can make you feel miserable (and i have been through it myself. My longest creative block was 2 years). However you should never force yourself to create. The best thing to do is relax, chill and do something else. See your friends or family, get outside, take a bath. Do something which will take you away from thinking about the block. Then it will come naturally :)

3.Experiment 
I find that when i am creating that the experimentation is the most fun part. A project can go in many directions towards the final piece or product. Often i sometimes forget this important part and tend to jump to the end out of impatience. Experimentation can make your work better and it's to show that you have tried different directions.

Collection - Primed And Ready Mattifying Pore Minimiser Primer Review

Hi Bunnies!

I have oily to combination skin. My skin blemishes very easily but i've been told that oily skin is the best for aging. So hopefully when i am in my 80s i'll look in my 40s. Hooray!
My first impressions of the primer is that it's a fantastic size. It's a good size for travel and easy to carry in your bag or purse. The design is modern looking and appealing.
The price is currently £3.99 which makes this primer very affordable. It's a thumbs up so far! :)
 
So let's swatch this primer on the back of my hand for you to see :)
The primer is a transparent gel which feels silky smooth and has no odour.
It's now time to put the primer on my face to show if this product works.
Here is my skin before applying the primer and my regular foundation. 
I have a few acne scars from my teenage years and hormonal blemishes.
While applying i notice how smooth the primer feels on my face.
After i have applied the primer, i notice that my skin has a matte appearance.
 However i wouldn't personally wear this primer with out foundation as i am insecure about my blemishes
After foundation my skin looks great. less pores, smooth and mattifying look. Success!

What do you think? Let me know in the comments below!

For a high street primer, i would definitely recommend.

The Violinist in Nottingham

Hi Bunnies.

There was a violinist who performed on the streets of Nottingham on Monday, outside of Broadmarsh shopping centre. This was when i was buying products from Boots and i filmed a beauty haul on my main channel

Watch the video below :)

I feel that being in the presence of the violinist was a life changing moment.

Let me know in the comments below your "wow" moments and experiences.

I sat down to have a drink of water on a street bench because I was thirsty from shopping around the city centre. The man who sat next to me was wearing jogging bottoms and a sweat shirt with a coat. He was a average sort of man and a little scruffy. He had a violin in his hands and put out the instruments case on the pavement  to collect money from the public.

He started to play his violin and bautiful music came out of the instrument. "Never judge a book by it's cover" i immediately thought.

Members of the public walked past him and most people ignored him. I couldn't understand why as this man had a absolutely incredible talent.He carried on playing with a huge smile on his face and turned the speaker up even louder.

This made me laugh and I really admired this mans determination. The violinist was perusing his passion and sharing it with the world. Despite what he was wearing and that he was playing on the street. I realised in that moment how many excuses I make up in my mind which stops me from achieving my goals. The violinist taught me that it's time to stop making excuses. If you want something enough. You can do it!

It doesn't matter about what you look like, how good your equipment is or how long it takes you to a perfect a skill or where you perform. All that matters if that you are putting yourself out there for the world to see. Somebody will eventually see the potential in you to achieve great things and give you a chance.

I saw this violinists outstanding potential and I felt like I was in the presence of greatness. Tears started to fall from my eyes as the emotions from the music started to hit me. 

When he finished playing. I took some change from my purse and put it into his open instrument case. The small contribution I hope would be a start of him making much more money. He deserved so much more.

This violinist deserved a stage, lights, camera and a audience. I could see it in my mind just waiting for his chance to come along and happen for him.

I plucked up the courage to speak to him. I smiled and told him "do not give up, you have a beautiful talent!".

Because everybody needs encouragement and support.
Bunny Hugs,

Hayley
