Simple, Understated Makeup

Some days I don’t feel like wearing a bold lip (not very often, though) and like to keep the rest of my makeup simple by using the least number of products. I have worn this look a few times over the past month and wanted to share it with you. Because the look is so simple it works well with a bold lip too!

Products Used:

1. Simple Kind To Skin Replenishing Rich Moisturiser – This is my go to everyday moisturiser. It preps my skin for the rest of my makeup and doesn’t irritate it. I have used this for years.

2. Rimmel Professional Brow Pencil in 002 Hazel – I bought this pencil in March 2016 and while it is getting smaller I’m still on the first one – value for money wise you can’t go wrong! This pencil lifts my brows, fills in gaps and makes them look that bit neater.

3. The Body Shop Vitamin C Face Mist – I love the smell when I spray this on in the morning, it’s so fresh. I use the face mist to give my skin an extra moisture boost as I can get dry skin and this prevents that.

4. Max Factor Lasting Finish Foundation – This is my go to foundation for those days I want flawless coverage. I only need the tiniest amount – a little goes a long way – and it covers all my redness and smoothes out my skin tone. This looks even more flawless when applied using the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush.

5. Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer – This concealer has become my holy grail. It works like a dream when used with the Max Factor foundation mentioned above. The shade is perfect for me and the consistency is creamy and moisturising.

6. Teeez Smokey Rose Eyeshadow – I don’t have many single eyeshadows but this one takes the cake for prettiest packaging! The colour can be applied using a brush or fingers and it has a subtle duochrome effect which turns it into an everyday colour. This pulls green with a hint of pink on me and does indeed look like a smokey rose.

7. Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara – This mascara has fast become one of the best I’ve ever tried. The shape of the brush allows it to reach the inner and outer lashes making it look like you’ve got more lashes and really opens your eyes to make them look bigger. The washable formula lasts all day on me and is easy to remove. 

8. Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick #45 – I only purchased this lipstick two months ago but I find myself reaching for it a lot lately. This shade is such a beautiful pink nude that is inoffensive and suits a number of skin tones. The pigmentation is great and the formula is super creamy!

The Finished Look:

What I Did With My Time Off

By the time you’re reading this I will have already been back at work a week. I took a week off at the start of June and it was a much needed break. It’s my first real time off in almost a year and it was bliss! Prior to my time off I made a list of what I wanted to achieve and I managed to complete all of it… almost. Hope you enjoy the post!

Haircut

The last time I had my hair cut was October 2015, so a tidy up was long overdue. The salon I normally go to hasn’t impressed me the past couple of times so I went back to a salon I’d tried a few years ago. I got layers put in rather than have my hair one length how it usually is. The hairdresser did a lovely job and although my hair seems short at the moment it will grow back soon enough, plus, I really like it. I did share my new hair on Instagram and I’ve attached an image in case you don’t follow me/haven’t seen it. My instagram name is chanellehayley_ – follow me and I might just follow you back! 😉

Tidy Up Loose Ends

I’d been meaning to clean windows for my mum for a little while and I wanted to do it on the very first day to get it over and done with. The weather was wet and gloomy and the rain provided a nice backdrop for the cleaning.

One of the items in my latest ASOS order was a wrong send so I had to pop to the post office and send it back. The return service is done online and it’s really easy. It’s also free which is even better! The parcel is tracked and you can view progress online so you know exactly where it is. I’m gutted I didn’t receive the correct jumper and my size is out of stock so I can’t re-order, perhaps it’s not meant to be?

The zip pouch in my handbag where I keep my phone has had a rip in it for months and I finally got around to fixing it. Now nothing can fall through.

Shopping

I only went shopping once during my time away from work and I didn’t splurge at all (I hardly ever do!) I was on the hunt for B vitamins as I have been feeling stressed/tired lately and so far they are working wonders! I bought shampoo and conditioner minis to keep at my boyfriend’s and they smell divine. I’ve wanted to try OGX’s shampoo/conditioner for ages but the big bottles are so expensive at the supermarket. I also bought some underwear and socks, (essentials right?!) and a couple of books to take to work to read.

Motion Entertainment Centre

Late last year an entertainment centre opened about 5 minutes from where I live and my boyfriend and I made plans to go along and try out a couple of activities. We did Escape Masters and ten pin bowling. Escape Masters involves being locked in a themed room and using clues and brainteasers to open locks and ultimately escape from the room. There is a time limit of 60 minutes. My boyfriend and I took 70 minutes but that was on medium difficulty and we wasted the first 10 minutes figuring out what to do. I was absolutely hopeless at ten pin bowling, I scored less than 50 points for the whole game but I did manage to get an 8 and a 2 in one round. We want to go back and try mini golf next.

trip to the snow (sort of)

My boyfriend’s parents thought it would be nice to take me on a trip to see some ‘proper’ snow. I was wrapped up in my puffa jacket and warm clothes, we set off early and the weather looked promising but on arrival mist and cloud had set in and there was no snow to be seen. Hopefully we’ll go again soon and be more successful.

Chill

As well as planning out the things I wanted to do I also took time to chill out and take it easy. I had a few sleeps ins and lazy days. I caught up on a bunch of YouTube videos in my ‘Watch Later’ list, started a jigsaw puzzle and sang/listened to music.

Overall, I had a wonderful time and the weather (apart from the snow day outing) was just as wonderful, there was lots of sunshine which made me happy.


Is there anything you like to do when you have extra time off work? How do you spend your days?

My Three Year Blogversary!

MY BLOG IS THREE TODAY!!!

For anyone who knows me well, you’ll know I absolutely love the number 3! ( I don’t know why, maybe it’s the shape of the number or that it’s odd and sometimes I feel like a square peg in  round hole so I can relate). This feels like a huge milestone.

The past 12 months have flown by extremely fast and I can hardly believe it’s a year since I held a giveaway to celebrate the blog turning two! I won’t be announcing a giveaway this time around (sorry to disappoint) but I’m not ruling it out sometime in the near future. I don’t want to host a giveaway for the sake of it, I like to plan and organise prizes and bits and pieces I think a recipient would like.

Since Chanelle Hayley turned two there have been some changes. At times I feel like I’ve lost my blogging mojo and I no longer post three times a week. I have been aiming for two lately but there are moments I consider stopping blogging altogether or only writing when I feel inspired. It would be so easy to stop and quit but I think I’d miss it and I’d dislike not having an outlet anymore. Not to mention the amount of friends I have made in the past three years, we share a passion and entertain each other.

This is my annual thank you to everyone reading this, my fellow bloggers, those who stumble upon my blog, people who want to start their own and anyone looking to escape for five or ten minutes. This blog has become so much more than I could have ever imagined and your comments, likes and interactions mean more than you’ll ever know. I have grown as a person, I’m more confident, I’m more knowledgeable and I’m grateful I get to share some of my best moments with such a wonderful bunch!

I know my blog isn’t ‘popular’ or the most cool but I wear my heart on sleeve and talk about things that are real. I don’t obsess over PR opportunities and working with brands. In a strange way I’m proud that I have never received financial compensation and don’t monetize my blog. I’m not against it but that’s not what my blog is. My blog is about a girl who believes in happiness and thinks too much, a girl with a big heart who will always try to brighten someone else’s day.

Love,

signature_59rnt66ifetkuap2w9

P.S. I didn’t mean for this post to sound gloomy. I’m very proud of where my blog stands and how hard I continue to work at it. I’m not ready to give up just yet.

Q&A: The Answers

Hi my lovelies! Three weeks ago I put the call out for any questions you had which could be used for a Q&A post. Thank you so much to everyone here on the blog and on Instagram for your contributions. I was sent a bunch of really interesting questions, the majority of which I’ve never been asked before. I hope you enjoy reading my answers!

WordPress

A Beautiful Thing asked:

1. How did you and your boyfriend meet?

I knew this question would come up because I’ve never mentioned it before. In short, we met through Tinder. I’d literally only been on Tinder a couple of weeks before we met in real life and shortly after meeting I deleted the app. I know Tinder can get a bad rap but I think it’s down to how you use it. There are people that use it to play games and for hook ups but I’m not that kind of girl. I have standards and morals and I wouldn’t get myself into a situation that I would later regret. I was picky and didn’t swipe right for just anybody. I went into using Tinder with an open mind and I didn’t know I’d get a boyfriend out of it. I was true to myself and it seems to have paid off.

2. What’s your favourite thing about being in a relationship?

Always having someone to talk to and share things with. Nearly every week I spend two or three days at my boyfriend’s house when I’m not at work and the days I don’t get to see him we always talk. I love the little things; being asked about my day, daily good morning and good night texts and spending time together. I feel more confident since meeting my boyfriend and I have a great reason to wake up every day.

3. What places/sites would you recommenced seeing in NZ?

I’ve barely traveled around my own country so I don’t feel like the best person to answer this question but I’ll try…

When you fly into NZ you land in Auckland so I’d recommend spending time there for the amount of things there are to do: malls, theme park, zoo, restaurants etc. It is the largest city so there’s always something going on! I live in a place called Rotorua which you might like if you want to learn more about culture and experience natural wonders like geysers. The South Island is popular with tourists in terms of landscape. If you’re a fan of nature and outdoors you will see some lovely sights.

British Girl In An Aussie World asked:

4. If you could only use ONE makeup brand for the rest of your life what would it be and why?

I’m a big fan of Rimmel, especially their Match Perfection foundation, mascaras and lipsticks. Rimmel is an affordable brand with quality to match!

5. How old were you when you started wearing makeup?

Properly, I’d say 13 or 14. When we’d have mufti (non-uniform) days at school I would always look forward to doing my makeup. I’d wear my mum’s blue mascara and use her eyeshadow palettes because I didn’t have any of my own. During my teens I started expanding my own makeup collection and I still have my first eyeshadow palette.

6. What is your favourite thing about The UK?

The quality of music and musicians. I listen to a lot of British artists.

Also, the fact my boyfriend is British. We’re meant to be, right?!

Helpless Whilst Drying asked:

7. If all your lipsticks disappeared, what would be the first three you repurchase?

I’m cheating and choosing four: MAC Syrup/Brave (I can’t make up my mind which one), BYS – Fuschia Surprise, Australis – Gangsta Rap and Frambourjoise by Bourjois. All my favourite bold colours covered as well as a neutral/everyday colour.

Lifestyle Bites 3 asked:

8. What is your main step to contour and sculpt?

I cannot and don’t try to contour. I sometimes sweep some bronzer over my cheeks and that is it. I don’t know a lot about contouring but the 3 shape works well for the face outline and the W motion over the nose and tops of the cheeks.

9. How do you keep track on the lifespan of a product?

I don’t follow product lifespans religiously and tend to go with my instincts. If something smells bad and the texture is off I’ll throw it away but I’ve never had any reactions and don’t have any sensitive areas. Some mascaras I keep past the three month mark and lipsticks I tend to keep for a couple of years.

Instagram

nadine_blewett asked:

10. What is your favourite drugstore lipstick?

BYS – Fuschia Surprise. It’s my shade! A good alternative is Lollipop by Revlon.

angwooly asked:

11. Do you prefer getting up early or staying up late?

Depends on my mood. I used to be more of a night owl a couple of years ago but most nights I’m in bed around 11pm.

12. If you could only use one makeup product what would you choose?

Lipstick. I would be lost without my bright, bold shades.

13. If you could teleport anywhere in the word right now, where would you choose and why?

New Zealand is pretty awesome but it’s a dream of mine to visit The UK. I’d also like a getaway to somewhere resort-like such as Bora Bora and relax by the water, get massages and laze around – it would be bliss right now.

stashmatters asked:

14. What’s your dream job?

I want to be a singer!

15. If you won $10 million, what would you do?

Be boring and put most of it in the bank. I’d give some to those who I care about and build my dream house and travel. I can’t name every single thing I’d do because in the moment I might make a different decision and an opportunity could arise as a result of a decision I make.

16. What’s your fondest childhood memory?

This sounds a little bit sad but I don’t know I have one. I remember having a happy childhood and although we didn’t have a lot of money I wasn’t unhappy. I always had clothes on my back, food to eat and a mother who put her children first. One of my favourite things to do was sing along to Shania Twain and do my hair like hers. That resonates with me because years later I rediscovered her music and now I’m able to appreciate it more. Listening to Come On Over always makes me nostalgic.

17. What’s your biggest regret? 

Sacrificing my happiness for the sake of others. Not standing up for myself and not being able to say no.

18. Pizza, hotdog or hamburger?

Pizza – thin crust pepperoni with barbecue sauce! 🍕

lovekylie1 asked:

19. Are you an only child?

No. I have one brother who is three years older than me.


I had a ball reading through your questions and answering them! Which answer was your favourite? Did any surprise you? Let me know if you’d like another Q&A in the future!

Gratitude Journal: May

gratitude
/ noun
the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.


Sometimes I forget what goes on until I read back over these daily highlights and remember all the little things that made me smile. I took a few big steps this month, I did things that were really brave and I feel like I’m getting back to normal. When I say normal I mean the Chanelle who feels in control and thinks about her needs and wants. There are times I have felt pushed around and I no longer want that, badass Chanelle is coming out!

Here’s what made me smile in May:

May 1: Got to wear one of my new cardigans. (The grey one featured in *THIS* haul).

May 2: Watching movies with my boyfriend that I wouldn’t normally pick. It’s nice to watch something different.

May 3: When your cat is excited to see you when you get home – she ran to me and everything!

May 4: After work chocolate snack.

May 5: Finished a really good book today; Twenty Times a Lady by Karyn Bosnak.

May 6: The Missing is so gripping!

May 7: Pink lip products will forever be my favourite!

May 8: New music by Shane Filan is a treat.

May 9: Woke up feeling refreshed after a good nights sleep.

May 10: I did something really brave today

May 11: Only 15 more working days until my time off!

May 12: Hot chocolate on chilly evenings.

May 13: I forget how much I love my bright purple lipstick until I wear it.

May 14: Only had to work half a day and got to spend more time with mum for Mother’s Day. We had afternoon tea treats!

May 15: When your makeup turns out exactly how you planned.

May 16: When your boyfriend lets you wear his clothes because you’re cold.

May 17: Made homemade bread with my boyfriend’s mum.

May 18: Got given a lipstick by a work colleague – a sample of Luscious Raspberry by Elizabeth Arden.

May 19: Caught up with a bunch of YouTube videos.

May 20: Reliable people.

May 21: Dominoes for dinner, had a change from my usual which was delicious!

May 22: Was a very brave girl for my blood test!

May 23: In a happy mood today.

May 24: When someone special tells you something special.

May 25: Sponge cake for dessert.

May 26: Purchased a brand new FitBit Zip on clearance for $29 – bargain! (And yes it’s the magenta one from my Tech/Lifestyle Wishlist).

May 27: Enjoyed my toast for breakfast this morning.

May 28: Finally painted my nails after not doing so for weeks. Went for pastel purple.

May 29: The weather was so nice today, not cold at all!

May 30: Pizza and a movie night with my love; we watched 50 Shades Darker.

May 31: Coming home to parcels excites me.


What were you grateful for in May?

May Favourites 2017

May, where have you gone?! This month has zoomed past and I’m struggling to comprehend where all the time went. This month has been a bit of a lazy one, I haven’t always felt motivated, I’ve felt tired and I think that’s down to the the colder weather. I’m very much looking forward to my time off in June to take time out and relax.

Onto this month’s favourites:

1. Steps – Tears On the Dancefloor – When I heard my favourite band were reuniting for a second time at the beginning of the year I was over the moon! Steps are the ones who made me want to be a singer because their music is so joyous and uplifting and makes you smile when you listen to it. Last month they released their fourth studio album and first album of new material in years. I have been listening on repeat on Spotify as a friend from The UK is sending me a signed physical copy. I haven’t got anything signed of theirs and I can’t wait to hold the album in my hands. Steps have created current pop tracks mixed with their traditional sound. Their music has a deeper meaning and poignant lyrics but always sounds happy. Standout Tracks: Scared of the Dark, You Make Me Whole, Story of a Heart, Firefly and Glitter & Gold.

2. Victim: The Secret Tapes of Marilyn Monroe by Matthew Smith – I know who Marilyn Monroe is but I don’t know a great deal about her. I have been meaning to read this book after seeing it lying around home numerous times and let me tell you, this book was a real page turner. The book speculates a few ways she could have died and presents evidence for each case. The author remains neutral and lets the reader make up their mind. The author does lean towards the stance that Marilyn didn’t commit suicide and discusses how the tapes Marilyn recorded in secret for her psychiatrist support this theory. I don’t know what happened to Marilyn but thinking about it makes me sad. She had a beautiful spirit which lives on. 

3. Beanie – The weather has cooled down significantly over the past couple of weeks and it means I can get my beanie out. I love this beanie because it is so soft and the pom pom on top is ever so fluffy. I like the fact that it’s navy as it makes a change from my usual black accessories and means if I’m wearing black my outfit still has colour.

4. Keep Cup – My brother ordered this for me when he visited in April and I love it! I got to choose the colours myself (it’s a very Chanelle colour scheme) and the fact it’s personalised makes it more cool. I don’t often get takeaway drinks but on the odd occasion I do I will be able to use this from now on.

May’s Spotify Playlist:

Reverse Bucket List

Hi everyone! A while back on the blog I wrote a post called 25 Things I’d Like To Do which is essentially a bucket list. I was browsing online recently and came across the idea of a ‘Reverse Bucket List’ where you create a list of the interesting things you’ve already done. I have come up with 22 seeing as that’s my age. Enjoy!

1. Join a choir – I was part of two during my school years.

2. Take part in a spelling bee – I came third. The word that undid me was battalion. I still have the word list and jar of Vegemite as memories.

3. Sing in a school talent quest – I was 14 and sang Issues by The Saturdays.

4. Place first in school subjects – Subjects include French, Accounting, Media Studies and Health.

5. Speak French – I’m not fluent but I can hold basic conversations and translate phrases.

6. Get followed by Britney Spears on Twitter – It was around the release of Femme Fatale. I tweeted her about the album and next thing I know she followed me.

7. Own a MAC lipstick – I’ve got 9 to be precise.

8. Pass my learner licence test – I passed on July 5 2016!

9. Have my first kiss.

10. Tell someone special I love them.

11. See Ellie Goulding in concert – I’ve seen Ellie twice (2014 and 2016) and she is amazing!

12. Start a blog – Chanelle Hayley is 3 years old next month!

13. Fly on a plane by myself – It was only a short journey but a few years ago I probably wouldn’t have done it.

14. Win money in a casino.

15. Receive a birthday tweet from Shane Filan – It was for my 17th birthday in 2012.

16. Buy an iPhone.

17. Upload me singing online – I have uploaded snippets to Instagram as well as full length videos to YouTube.

18. Never dye my hair – I’m proud that my hair colour is all natural.

19. Pass my Diploma in Communications (Applied) with straight A’s.

20. Have a makeup drawer – I did a makeup clear out at the start of 2016 and it’s nice to have a dedicated space for my makeup and to keep it all organised.

21. Discover my passion – Singing/music.

22. Open a savings account and contribute regularly – I have always been a saver rather than a spender and every payday I transfer money into my savings account. I get bonus interest at the end of each month which is also an incentive.


I hope you liked this post! Feel free to share a few things you’re proud of or things you have crossed off your bucket list!

The Liebster Award #5

This is the fifth time I have been nominated for a Liebster Award – thank you so much to Ella for nominating me! My last Liebster Award post was April 2016 (linked HERE) and also features links to all of my previous Liebster posts. I hope you enjoy this post and thanks again to Ella! Check out her blog if you haven’t already.

Rules:

  • You must acknowledge who has nominated you and also share their links
  • Share 11 facts about yourself
  • Answer the 11 questions that you have been asked
  • Nominate 11 more bloggers whose blog you would recommend
  • Ask 11 questions that you would like those bloggers to answer
  • Let the bloggers you have nominated know that they’ve been nominated.

Facts About Me

Instead of sharing 11 new facts, I am linking to my 50 Random Facts About Me post so you can hopefully learn a ton of things you didn’t already know!

Ella’s Questions:

1.What job did you want to do when you were younger?

I wanted to be a hairdresser, an accountant and a singer at different points. I still want to be a singer now.

2. Where would your dream holiday be?

A cross between relaxing and planned activities. I like knowing what I’m doing but I also like flexibility. Ideally somewhere not too hot as I’m not the biggest fan of heat. I’ve never been out of New Zealand so I don’t have much to go on and know where the best holiday spots are.

3. Do you believe in soul mates?

Yes and no. I don’t necessarily believe there is only one perfect person for everyone but I believe everything happens for a reason and sometimes when you meet a person it feels like the two of you are meant to be and everything clicks and you feel incredibly comfortable around them.

4. What would your superhero name be?

A play on my name, perhaps Coco Chanelle or Chanelle No. 5. I could have a huge ‘5’ on my cape!

5. If you could only use one makeup product what would it be?

Definitely lipstick! I love my bold, bright colours and couldn’t give them up.

6. What is your favourite film?

I don’t have a favourite that I always quote or re-watch constantly but Grease and Titanic stand out.

7. What shoe size are you?

Normally around a NZ size 8 which is the equivalent of a UK 6 or a European 38/39. My feet are short but they wide which makes shoe shopping difficult.

8. How do you feel right now, in this moment?

Confused. Tired. Stressed. In that order.

9. Favourite pizza topping?

Pepperoni.

10. What age were you when you knew Santa wasn’t real?

I always thought Santa was real and thought he stopped coming once you were a teenager. I like to think he is anyway, a little part of me wants him to be.

11. Can you dance?

I can. I’ve got good rhythm and can spend all night dancing. Professionally no, but made up moves – totally!

Nominees:

My Questions?

1. Pineapple on pizza, yes or no?

2. Do you believe in soul mates?

3. What’s your dream job?

4. Favourite song from your childhood?

5. What’s your favourite fashion trend currently?

6. What’s your middle name?

7. What’s your favorite TV show?

8. What is your go-to drink when you’re out?

9. Do you drink alcohol?

10. What is something about you people might not expect? Any hobbies, talents etc.

11. What question do you hate being asked?


Thanks for reading!

Q&A: Ask Me Anything!

In 2016 I held a giveaway and one of the conditions of entry was to leave at least one question in the comments. I enjoyed seeing all the questions and answering them so much that I wanted to send the call out again. Unfortunately, this time there is no giveaway involved (but perhaps again in the future!)

It’s been almost a year since the giveaway and I have gained new readers in that time. I want to give the new readers and my old readers the chance to get to know me better by asking any burning questions. Feel free to ask as many questions as you like and make them as personal as you wish. I will only not answer a question if I deem it to be inappropriate. 

You have two weeks to get your questions in, from May 18 (today) until June 1. The post will be up after I have had time to go through the questions and prepare my answers. Feel free to tweet me questions as well if that’s more your thing. Tweet them to @ChanelleTheSats along with the hashtag #AskChanelle.

Happy asking!
