It's September already?????
Honestly still feels like January 2009, simpler days ahhhhhh.
Anyway today I am going to do another Monthly Favourites so here it is.
Basically all through of August I have been wearing
Anastasia Beverly Hills Master Palette By Mario
on my eyelids.
I wear the shade Violeta which is a matte brown on my outer v with Isabel which is a matte orange. On my eyelid and inner corner I wear the shade Marina which is a sparkly dark peach colour.
I usually wear this eye look to school or when I'm going out as it looks like I spent a lot of time and effort on it when in reality it was really easy and quick. I also use the brush that comes with the palette, the brush is double sided. One side is more dense and the other side is really fluffy and amazing at blending.
Another makeup thing I have been using and almost ran out of is
Revolution Makeup Pro Fix Fixing Spray
This thing I need to buy another one as I have used it everyday. I use this before applying foundation and if I am working with cream products I spray this to make the product easier to blend and easier to work with. This spray is really hydrating and is turned my life around as it doesn't seem like a makeup necessity but somehow it just makes everything work.
The book that I've been reading through this month I got out of my school library and it's called
All Of The Above
This book is so true about what a teenager is about. I've almost finished the book but I do this weird thing
(some call it weird, some call it cool)
I never read the last page of a novel as I like to picture in my head what happens if the story goes on, I got the idea from a tv show ages ago.
Tv wise I have been watching doctor foster. Yes I know the show came out in 2015 and the new episode came out last Tuesday but I wanted to re-watch the first season to refresh my mind before I watched the new episode. Omg i forgot how good this tv show was! I love all the actors/actresses as they do such a good job of portraying their characters. Definitely recommend you give it a watch as it is amazing.
Make sure you follow all my social media and read my blog posts every Monday.

What's In My School Bag 2017
Still doing the countdown, 2 days until school urgh!
Anyway before I return back to school I want to show you what's in my school bag 2017 and could give you some tips on maybe what you could have in your bag.
My bag is an Anna Field Tote Bag in the colour Rose. It has one massive compartment and a little side pocket inside. It opens and closes with a gold zip. At the side of it it has little soft frilly slices of material connected by a hoop.
The first thing I have inside is my jotters, A4 folders and notebooks. This is stuff that's quite boring and basically just things I will need to complete work in class and home.
The next thing is deodorant. I have a roll on and spray as in case I am around someone with asthma I will use the roll on as they could react to the spray but if not I will use the spray can as I do prefer that. I also have three different types of body spray, they are the impulse and you can get in a set.
I keep a little pouch in my bag to store things like-
I call my emergency kit so I will always be prepared.
Ever since my first year of high school I have always carried around a hairbrush as I find it really useful. I use it after pe or when I'm in the toilets just to make sure my hair isn't messy. Most of my friends end up using it too so it does get a lot of use.
In my little side pocket of my bag it is basically is my pencil case. Inside of it I have 10 pens, 10 pencils, 1 sharpener and 1 eraser. I find using this so much easier as I don't need to dig around my bag for a pencil case and then unzip that to get a pen. Then again by the time Christmas comes around all my stationary will be gone!
Hope you found this helpful incase you were stuck how to fill up your bag with things you will need. There will also be an additional post on Wednesday at 7pm to talk about a certain product.
Make sure to follow all my social media links as I have been super active on them all!

Back To School Hacks
10 days...only 10 days! I need to return back to school in 10 days! For all of you confused I live in Scotland which means summer holidays start on the first day of July until August 23rd, its rubbish isn't it. I literally blinked and summer is over.
Since most of you will be returning to school, maybe not as soon as me but I thought I would write some back to school hacks for all of you to make that terrible place a bit more bearable.
Hack Number One-
It has been proven that studying for 30 to 50 minutes at a time with 10 minute breaks in between is the most effective way to remember and fully understand what you are trying to learn.
Hack Number Two-
If trying to memorise something really fast before your test try~
1.Read it 10 times
2.Say it 10 times
3.Write it 2 times
Hack Number Three-
Download the app PhotoMathl. It lets you take a picture of math problems and teaches you the correct steps to solve the problem.
Hack Number Four-
If you want to learn how to read at a faster pace Spreeder.com is a free website to improve your reading speed and comprehension.
Hack Number Five-
This one is kinda stupid but could save you from a LOT of embarrassing moments everyone has encountered. When approaching a door look for the hinges. If you see them, pull.
This is some useless yet useful hacks to make the school year the tiniest bit easier.

1 year anniversary
1 year ago today I posted my first ever blog post. I was excited yet nervous of what would happen with this,
would my readers grow?
Would I even get any readers?
Blogging has brought me so much happiness and has really lifted my moods. I've finally found something I've enjoyed and don't ever want to stop doing it. I love telling my personal experiences, telling my knowledge on things I love and most of all I love all my readers.
I literally cannot tell you how thankful I am for everything.
So here's to one year of JazzMinnie!
Love you all so much!

Hello everyone I am back and blogging. Today I am going to be doing my July Favourites since I got twitter messages asking me to bring my monthly favourites back, so here it is.
The first product I will talk about is the
Ready Set Smooth BarryM Loose Setting Powder
This powder has been my holy grail this month. I use it to bake and set my makeup with and recommended this if you are just starting off at baking your makeup.
Another makeup product I've been loving this month is
Tanya Burr Cosmetics Lipgloss-Afternoon Tea
I've had this for a few months now and decided to put it on and hated myself for not wearing this earlier. It is really glossy with a baby pink tone to it and looks nice as a natural lip and is really moisturising.
The last makeup product I have been using pretty much the whole of July is
Miss Sporty Insta Glow Primer
I bought this because I ran out of my MaxFactor Primer and remember watching a video of Floral Princess on YouTube (Anastasia) and saw it gave her a really smooth base and glowing pink tone to her face and really wanted to try it. I 100% recommended as it is so good and an affordable price.
Through July I have been reading 2 books and one of them is Anna Kendrick's Autobiography
Scrappy Little Nobody
I think this book is one of the most relatable, honest and funniest books I've ever read. Ever since I watched Pitch Perfect I've always looked up to Anna as an idol and getting her book and knowing more about her life has actually made me want to try a new hobby. I actually want to try acting in musical theatre, I will let you know how that goes further along in the line.
Another book I've been reading is Sophie Kinsella
I got interested in this book as my friend read it from the book club Zoella had released and suggested it to me. This story is such a touching and captivating book. As someone who gets anxious easily I can sort of relate to the book and understand what she means and how she feels. I would highly recommend you read it.
For body moisturiser I've been using
Boots Extracts Fruity Strawberry Body Butter
I use this after I come out of the shower and especially use it if I've shaved my legs. The smell it has smells like fresh strawberries and not artificial whatsoever. It leaves my skin super soft and moisturised.
For nail polish I've been using
China Glaze Highlight Of My Summer
It is a mint green and I think is a really great choice to wear in summer. China Glaze nail polish has got to be one of my favourite Nail Polish brands as it is such high quality and never disappoint.
And the last thing I've been absolutely loving is
Vaseline Healthy Hands+Stronger Nails
This hand cream has a lovely natural scent and smooths cuticles and softens my hands. It is fast absorbing and non-greasy which is a must for me in a hand cream as I hate sticky damp hands. I don't know if you can get this in different scents or anything but I can't see a name on it but mine is in a pink tube.
Before I go there will be another post on Wednesday as that is my one year anniversary of JazzMinnie!!!!!!!
Also make sure to follow me on all my social media as I've been super active on it recently.
See you all on Wednesday, bye!

Summer Bucket List 2017
Summer 2017 bucket list
For summer I want to make sure this summer is the best holiday ever. Last summer I basically just sat around and done nothing.
This year I want to try new things, go to breathtaking places and live life woo!
I've made a summer bucket list to do with friends and family to ensure I enjoy every minute of it.
•Go on a long walk with no final destination.
•Try new foods.
•Go to the beach.
•Have outdoor sleepovers.
•Try loads of new makeup.
•Try to get a real tan.
•Stay up till sunrise.
•Watch the sunset.
•Meet new people.
•Take photos of everything I do so I can do a summer 2017 post on JazzMinnie.
•Make my Instagram feed goals.
At the end of summer I want to do a whole post about my summer. It will include photos, what I did, who I did it with, my outifit, etc.
If you have anymore ideas tell me down below.
Also follow me on-

Mate Dates and Photography
One of the best things in life is friendships. When meeting total strangers I am pretty shy at first but after a while if we hit it off most times we become really good friends.
Recently I've been going on mate dates and I mean who doesn't like to talk and gossip a little with their friends outside of school while eating food. Whether that's Greggs, Nando's, McDonalds or whatever as long as there's good food and good friend/friends its definitely worth getting out of bed for.
I also wanted to ask you guys would you all prefer more photos in my blog post because I have recently been loving doing photography recently and getting quite good at editing photos too.
I wanted to ask you guys as it is for you not me. I want to keep my readers happy and interested as much as possible and you all are the best readers I can imagine.
Sorry this blog post is so short I'm on the train writing while coming back from visiting an old friend haha!

Happy Places And Moving On
Happy Places and Moving on
People always say-
'Whenever you want to escape from the world go to your happy place'
Where is my happy place?
I don't know...
Have you ever just wanted to forget what's bothering you and HOPE at some point you will move on, I'm trying to move on from something but I can't.
It bothers me all the time 24/7.
Trying to figure out why you can't move on is the worst, it's so hard to do! It then starts to annoy you which makes you annoyed at yourself because you can't just carry on without this small thing bothering you throughout the day.
I'm not going into too much detail what's bothering me but it's got something to do with if I made the right choice or should I just honestly say how I think and feel.
It's weird because I think my happy place is off social media, away from society and probably reading a book. Many people don't know I'm actually a massive book worm and love to read books a lot on my spare time, even most of my friends don't know that.
Strange to think my happy place is off social media when basically my whole life is on it! I'm on Instagram, Snapchat, Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter and that's just my personal not my blog accounts too.
I'm hoping I'll get over this issue at some point but for now I can't see myself doing that.
So I'll do what I always do...
Blog anonymously about it so no one can judge you personally ;)

Confidence And Broken Promises
Remember me, probably not....
Even reading this, probably not....
So yes I'm back, after what feels like a year. Long story ahead so be prepared!
So with my blog I was offered a job offer with this company (not going to say who it was) but I had heard of them, used some of their products and was genuinely a pretty good company OR SO I THOUGHT!
So I accepted the offer and at first they seemed nice, AT FIRST.
So this company when I got into the brand deal, they told me some things.
This part is ridiculous so be prepared-
Stop blogging for 5months and the first blog post I did was supposed to be about their products so it drew attention to their posts as readers hadn't heard from me in ages.
*cue the open mouth*
It's absolutely ridiculous, but me being a shy idiot I said sure I'll do that. I've never done a brand deal like this before and I thought maybe that's just how it works, I wish I asked someone!
I feel like I said yes as I wasn't confident with disagreeing with the company as the women who contacted me had been so lovely to me from the start. I didn't want to seem judged or seem disrespectful so I agreed with it.
I've written an email to resign from this product deal so many times but been to scared to send it but last week I finally sent it, go me wooo!
So here I am a week later back to being JazzMinnie. No longer writing blog posts in my notes and never posting them.
After all this I'm pretty sure the two people who know who I am will be pretty annoyed that I didn't tell them, you guys know who you are,sorry
Middle Child and Time lapse Buddy,
See you on Tuesday!
JazzMinnie Off Xx
I hope you are all enjoying 2017, have you kept you're New Year Resolutions....?
Today since I am keeping my resolution to post a blog post every Monday I am going to be telling you all about my December Favourites.
This product is limited edition so I'm sorry if you cannot get hold of it but if you have got it I'm pretty sure you will agree it is amazing! It's the 'Zoella Hungry Hands Gingerbread Scented Hand Cream.'
This is the best product for the gingerbread scent. I use this during school days mostly because school handrails and doors urgh!
Ever since I received this product for Christmas in my stocking I've been obsessed! It is the 'Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray.'
It really does keep my makeup on and doesn't let it run down my face. It is such an affordable price for such good quality.
When I opened this present on Christmas I was so happy as I have wanted 'Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette'
for ages. I love every single colour in this and it really does smell of chocolate. I am not entirely sure what benefits a chocolate scented eyeshadow could give but oh well it smells like heaven.
When I went shopping on the Boxing Day sales I bought 'The Tanya Burr Christmas Box'
as it was one of the last things of Tanya's Christmas Range that was in stock. This is also limited edition but if you have this I'm pretty sure you will agree that it's awesome! I have been loving the liquid highlight as Oh My Gosh it is so good. I mean what's a makeup look without highlight...?
As I got an 'Anastasia Beverly Hills Highlight Kit' from my sister I wanted to get a drugstore highlight that wasn't that expensive so I didn't use all the high end highlight cause I want to save that glow! So I bought 'Revolution Ultra Pro Glow'
This highlight...don't get me started on this highlight,I am going to say one word,
When I buy powders I always want a powder that sets my makeup but isn't cakey on my face. The 'L'oreal Infallible 24Hour Matte Powder' sets my makeup without a cakey aftermath. I also got this in the Boxing Day Sales and I will definitely be going back for more once I run out.
Thank you all for reading, make sure you follow my Instagram (as my feed is goals rn) and my twitter
