Random Blog Update 2

Hello everybody. So today I wanted to do a bit of a random blog chat with you. I just wanted to give you a bit of an update on my blog. So, i am aware that i went for about a month without blogging because i was very busy and i didn’t have any ideas. But then i suddenly got a lot of ideas all at once so this blog is going to become very active for a while. I have decided that i am going to try my very hardest to upload once a week for you. But as usual i cant guarantee this some weeks i may not upload or upload more than once but i will try to be more regular. Also, (spoiler alert) i will be uploading makeup and beauty blogs for the next 2-3 weeks as they are my ideas so i hope you enjoy that. Also any ideas you do have i would really appreciate it if you commented them or just comment that you enjoyed a certain blog/ blog style i did. Okay so you have all heard this before but remember to follow my blog so that you get my blogs every time i upload and press the like button because it really does make me feel good about my blogs and just generally happy. (I know that sounds odd but its true!) And remember to comment below any ideas for blogs or anything you like about my blogs. Or anything really, even if you just want a chat. Or you can email at oliviahartblog@gmail.com .Remember, if you do comment, to link your blogs below and i will try to check them all out. I will blog soon so remember to be back soon. I’m sorry that this has been a bit of a ramble but i like to give you a bit of an update on my blog. So thanks for reading. Some thing i don’t do very often which i want to say is a massive massive thank you to all my followers and all the lovely people for liking and commenting and to you all for just reading this. It really does mean a lot to me.

I love you all lots!

P.s Please remember to come back soon, not only for new blogs but for a big announcement which i will be revealing in a few weeks. So that’s something really exiting! If you are currently doing your exams or have them coming up i wish you good luck. See you soon! xx

May favourites

Hello everybody.  Sorry I haven’t blogged in a long time but now I have lots of ideas. Now this is my first monthly favorites and I intend to keep this up at the end of every month. So it is now June but I am going to tell you about some of my beauty and random favourites of may 2016. Sorry I am a bit late but still,  better late than never!
1) Barry M mani mask in bamboo– this helps strengthen your nails as well as give them a beautiful nude, semi matte finish.
2) Tanya Burr Peachy glow cheek palette– I only got this reason try after wanting it for ages and it is beautiful. I love the blush, bronzer and highlighter.
3) MUA lipstick in shade 14 bare– this is a beautiful pale nude lipstick which goes with any look.
4) MUA pistachio ice cream nail polish– this is the most beautiful mint candy apple coloured nail polish.
5) Sleek blush– sleek has such a wide range of colours both matte and shimmer and they have amazing pigmentation.
6) e.l.f daily brush cleanser– I find cleaning makeup brushes so much easier with the help of this cleanser.
7) Fox’s triple biscuit bars– this may sound random but they taste amazing.
8) Now you see me– this is an action(ish) film which I recently re watched and I find it so entertaining.
9) Zoella– I know it’s weird to put a person on your favorites but recently I have loved watching Zoe’s videos. (Am looking farward to trying her new range!)
10) Forest– this is an app which basically times you for a set amount of time and won’t let you access any other apps (until times up) with out killing a tree. This really helps me with revision.
11) Cookie dough ice cream– it’s getting warmer weather (where I live) and this ice cream just tastes delicious!
12) Spotify–as always this app is just perfect if you want to listen to music.
13) lush– lately I have been loving large colourful bath bombs as they just make the perfect bath.

Thank you for reading this far because it was a long list of favourites! Also, I’m sorry I haven’t blogged in a while I have just been very busy and have been stuck for blog ideas. But don’t worry because I now have lots of ideas so be prepared for lots of blogs to come! Sorry to be dragging on for so long but I just wanted to tell you that I have something very exiting planned for you all! Remember to follow this blog if you are new here, like this post if you liked it and comment down below if you also like any of these things. Or comment any of your favorites that I may like. Also if you have time, please check out my friends Zoe and Gabi’s blog which I will link below.

Positive thinking

Hey everyone!  Sorry I haven’t blogged in a while but I have kind of been through a tough patch in life lately, so I haven’t been in the mood to blog. And so that was my inspiration for this blog… how to calm yourself down and be more positive when you feel a bit down.
1) Take a deep breath and hold it. As you breath in, tense every muscle in your body and when you breath out slowly release the tension in your body and you will feel calm- trust me!
2) Think of 5 good things that have happened that day to make you feel a bit better about the bad things.
3) Relax- when your stressed out just take some time to relax and you will feel better.
4) Talk to someone. Resently I have discovered that when you are really sad about something (even if you don’t know why you are down) you should talk to a close friend or family etc etc. Trust me you will feel better.
5) Take your mind of it by doing something you enjoy doing. It’s simple but effective. When you don’t think about why your sad, you generally become a little happier.
So that’s it for today’s blog, I hope it was some help to you. Again I am sorry that I haven’t blogged in a while and I will try to be more frequent.
Stay positive.

My random favourites

Hey everyone!  Today I really wanted to write a blog but I just spent ten minuets trying to come up with something to blog about so today I am going to blog about my random favorites. So here they are:
1) Spotify– Spotify premium is best but I don’t have Spotify premium I have the free version which is well worth it as it is incredible.
2) Whatsapp– It means you get free texts and calls and it means you can firm a group chat will multiple people. So I recommend it as it’s free.
3) Lush– What’s not to love about about lush it’s just amazing stuff.
4) Wattpad– If you don’t know what it is, it’s bazically when people write books on their and you can read them but you can also write if you want. I have got really into it lately.
5) Face masks– They just make your skin so soft and feel gone and, it sounds weird but, I kinda just enjoy using face masks.
6) Youtube– Obviously. I particularly love Zoe Sugg (aka Zoella) and Joe Sugg.
7) Matte nude eyeshadow– I particularly love a palette called Mega Mattes by technic it’s not a proper brand but it has beautiful neutral colours and was literally £3.60 on Amazon.
8) Hair masks– Particularly  Frizz ease hair mask. It is quite cheap and is amazing for your hair.
9) Troye Sivan– I have just become kind of obsessed with his songs lately especially Youth. But that relates to Spotify.
10) Starbucks– I just love Starbucks. Especially their  iced late. They are incredible.
Thanks for reading. I recommend all of these and they where not in order of importance. Anyway, I will blog soo. Bye.

Sorry everyone :/

Hello everyone.  I am so sorry I haven’t blogged in almost 2 weeks. I never intended to leave it this long it’s just that I haven’t had any ideas and I don’t want to upload any old rubbish.  Also I don’t want to feel obliged to upload even if I don’t have any ideas. Anyway, now I have a load of ideas but I just wanted to dedicate a separate blog to apologise for not blogging in so long.
Anyways, will blog soon.
Love you all

My blogging tips

Hey everybody! So I just saw that I got a comment from anonymous asking how I created my blog. So here are my top tips for blogging.

1) My biggest tip is to blog what you want, when you want. It’s easy to get caught up in the popular things, you don’t have to blog about something just because other bloggers do. It’s your blog.

2) Read your blog back before you upload it. This is something I am really bad at but trust me, you will find mistakes when you read it back.

3) So when you are just starting your blog I recommend you try different styles. You may think you will enjoy blogging one thing in particular but I recommend you do a couple of different blog topics and see what you like.

4) When you first set up your blog you have to choose a design for it. My advice is not to worry about finding the perfect design, just choose one you like because you can always change it later.

5) Make sense in your blog. I struggle at this sometimes too. Sometimes,  things make sense in your head but it’s easy to write something which people don’t understand. So, remember people will be reading the blog and make sense! (This links to reading back the blog)

6) In your first blog, I recommend that you tell people a bit about yourself so they know what to expect. You can even do this is your blog is anonymous because you don’t have to give to much away if you don’t want to.

7) Keep it personal. If you have read my previous blogs, you would know that sometimes I say stuff like “sorry I haven’t blogged in a while” and ” hello everybody!”. Keep it personal as if you are talking to someone. But also remember that people have come to your blog to learn a diy or whatever you blogged about so remember to stay to the point.

8) On WordPress, you can add widgets on your blog and I recommend you put a follow button onto the very top of your blog. This is because people are more likely to follow your blog if you make it easy to do so. I really hate it when you have to go right to the bottom of a page to follow a blog.

9) Always comment on other blogs so that people know your out there and will prohaps look at your blog. But something I hate is when people just comment stuff like “Love this. Be sure to check out my blog and follow me.” this makes you appear desperate and I am much more likely to follow a blog if the blogger is nice and only subtly introduces their blog at the end of a comment.

10) Finally, don’t expect much of your blog if you have only just started it. I didn’t get my first follower for about 3-4 days of me starting this blog. You have to give people time to find your blog before you expect them to follow. Be patient. But also keep your blogs frequent. People are more likely to follow a blog which has regular posts.

I hope this was some help to you. I know I have only been blogging for 2 months but these tips are just some things which I have learnt. Sorry this blog was so long but I wanted to include all my tips in one blog. I hope it helped.
Love you all!

Beauty blogging :-)

Hey everybody! So this is going to be a quick blog. So I uploaded a blog called my beauty products part 1 just 14 minutes ago and surprisingly I have already had 8 likes from it which is amazing. 
You guys obviously liked that blog and I definitely enjoyed making it. Obviously as that is the first blog in a series, I will be continuing that series. But I think I will start to make more beauty blogs as I really like making them.
Thanks again

My beauty products part 1

Hey everyone! So today’s blog is going to be something a bit different. This is the first of a series of beauty blogs. Now I have never done a beauty blog before but I really like beauty.  To be honest I only wear makeup on special occasions but I do have an excessive amount of makeup and thousands of beauty products. So I am going to create a series of blogs about my beauty products! The reason I am creating several blogs is because I have too much to create one blog.
In this blog I am going to tell you about my bath/ bath related products. I have written where I got them from too. Also, some of the lush products are no longer available because I got them during the Christmas season so you won’t be able to get them any more. But you may be able to get them next year.

So these are all my bath products. As you can see, some (6) of the products are from lush but some of them are just unbranded bath products. To be honest I could go on for hours explaining all of these so I’m not going to explain them. But I love them all as they all smell wonderful!!!
I have:
Luxury lush pud (bath bomb) (lush)
Lush fizzbanger (bath ballistic) (lush)
Lush Mmmelting marshmallow moment (bath oil) (lush)
Lush you’ve been mangoed (bath oil) (lush)
Lush the magic of Christmas (reusable bubble wand)(lush)
Lush magic wand (reusable bubble wand)(lush)
Zoella bath bombeinies (may have spelt that wrong) (Superdrug)
The beauty parlour bath caviar (Morrisons)-(cringe)
The beauty parlour 3 in a row bath bombs (Morrisons)
Sweet snuggles snowflake bath bombs (superdrug)
Random Christmas mini bath bombs  (Amazon)

Next I have other bath related products.
I have:
The body shop strawberry body butter (The body shop)
The body shop mango bubble bath (The body shop)
Possibility raspberry pavlova body lotion (Boots)
Zoella creamy madly dreamy body lotion (Superdrug)
Britney Spears curious body lotion (Superdrug/Boots)
Toni&Guy professional hair set containing shampoo, conditioner, hair spray and heat defence spray (Asda)

I love all these products and recommend them to you all as they are so nice. If you want me to go into more detail about them please tell me and I could create a more detailed blog for you. I really hope you enjoyed my first ever beauty blog. I will be making more in this series and maybe will make more beauty blogs if you like this. Again I’m sorry I didn’t go into much detail but I didn’t want to make this blog too long.
Please comment what you think of this blog, like and follow me too!!
Thanks for reading. Love you all. See you next time.

Blog style vote results

Hi everyone! So today I am going to make a really short blog to tell you all about the results for the blog style vote I put up on my blog a week ago.
So I put up a vote on a blog asking you all to vote which type of blog you like best. 22 of you voted and the highest amount of votes went to lifestyle with 12 votes. So I have decided to do more lifestyle blogs if I can. I’m so sorry about the quality of the picture but you can just make out the votes.
Thanks for reading.
