not so deep (chatty)

things that are making me happy right now


I’m really giddy happy right now and I thought y’know what? I’m gonna write a blog post about it. Let’s document this moment.

So, I’m currently sat in my room, it’s a Sunday and the sun is kind of doing that thing where it makes everything all hazy and pretty in the light – it’s also great because I swear for the past week we’ve had fog and rain, it’s literally been dark for a week straight so when I saw the sun today, I did a little happy dance, can’t lie.

I’m listening to Try Hard by 5SOS but not the remastered version, the original. They’ve re-recorded a lot of their older songs and it makes me cry a little because I prefer the old versions so much more as obviously, when they came out that’s the version I was listening to. THE NEW ONES JUST AREN’T THE SAME OKAY. Anyway, I was watching the music video for it as well and it makes me so happy ’cause they were actually touring at the time they filmed it and I remember when they released the music video my friend and I were praying that they’d put clips from our show in there (side note – they didn’t) but it’s okay, we forgave them.

Another great thing right now is that I ordered some colourful liquid eyeliners from NYX, I was watching Cartia’s pre-Coachella vlog and NYX had taken her so there was a lady that came and showed them the makeup they could use for the festival and she got these gorgeous colourful liquid eyeliners out of her makeup bag and everyone went WOW and I went WOAH and it reminded me that for a really long time I’d actually wanted to buy some but was too scared because I was thinking…when am I gonna be able to incorporate this into a makeup look? When am I gonna be brave enough to wear this as a makeup look? As in, actually out of the house, in public – when am I gonna be brave enough to do that?

BUT I went to TGI Fridays for the first time the other week and the waitress who was looking after our table was wearing yellow winged eyeliner and I thought it was so pretty, it reminded me how much I’d wanted to do it for ages and then I saw Cartia’s vlog today and it was like the universe was telling me – Chloe, just buy the damn eyeliners and so I did, you gotta listen to the Universe giving you signs, right? Anyway, now I’m super excited because I bought the colours yellow and pink (I wanted blue as well but I don’t know if I’m that brave yet) and also some new highlighting palettes because your girl likes to glow okay, so with my yellow wings and sparkly highlighted face I’m going to look like the actual sun in human form. Anyway, let me know if you want me to do some eye looks with these new colours and I shall try my very best to make a decent post out of it – like I said I’m always looking to expand the content on my blog and I think that would be super fun!

I also bought these which I’m absolutely dying over and I really shouldn’t have bought them because I’m trying to save right now (who am I kidding) but I literally couldn’t resist, I had to have them – they’re the Dr Marten x Lazy Oaf collaboration and if I were a pair of shoes, I’d be this. This is literally me in a shoe…or a boot, if we’re being technical. I really wanted the black pair but they’re all sold out so I just got the pink for now, I’m going to buy the black ones off someone else.


I also had a job interview the other day that went really well, I’m not even really looking for a new job at the moment but I wanted to do it anyway to basically kick anxiety’s butt and see if I could do it and I did!! So I’m super proud of myself for that because I was so close to pulling out last minute but I didn’t, instead I showed my anxiety who was boss and aced the interview, so I gave myself a little pat on the back for that.

Anyway, let me know if you guys enjoy these kind of posts – I feel like there’s a lot of thoughts / things that go in in my life that I want to share with you all but they’re not things I can incorporate into a blog post or make an actual blog post out of – I can’t just put up a 3 line post about how I just bought some colourful liquid eyeliners, ya know? But I wanna share it all with you anyway! This is where I wish WordPress had like a Twitter vibe where I could just post mini things because there’s so many things I always wanna ask you guys about or update you on but they just don’t really fit anywhere on my blog. So maybe I’ll start just putting them in posts together like these, so let me know if you like it!

All my love,

Chloe .xx

p.s. – my posting schedule – do we like Mondays, Wednesdays & Saturdays as it is now or shall I change it to Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays?? I feel like the gap between Wednesday & Saturday is too long but I also like posting on the weekend. help please!

  1. Yellow winged eyeliner sounds SO cute!! I have been trying to experiment with makeup more lately and would love to do brighter/fun looks for the summer, like pastel eyeshadow or coral lipstick. Great post, dear! x

  4. I’m a little fearful of sharing deep thoughts on twitter, because sometimes the people can come across quite blunt or a little rude. But I agree that I have these little thoughts and sometimes I just want to write a little post, without it actually being a post.
    The WordPress community is the best one online!
    It’s so cool you bought the yellow and pink eyeliner. I hope you love wearing and feel super bold and confident! xx

  6. OMG GO GIRL! This post felt so weird reading it because I literally watched cartia’s video two days ago, I recently went a little boujee and splurged on a big fluffy jacket that I definitely don’t need but bought anyway AND I have a job interview coming up this week. Reading this blew my mind xx

    1. Yesss girl, get that jacket!! Honestly, we all need to have a little splurge on ourselves sometimes (though I will say mine wasn’t justified because I tend to ‘splurge’ on myself more often than I probably should) but what did I say about us literally being the same person!! Good look with your interview lovely, I’m sure you’ll smash it xxx

      1. hahaha yes! I got the jacket as a ‘treat yourself’ moment but on reflection, most of my life is a ‘treat yourself’ moment, so can’t say it’s justified and thanks babe!! xx

  7. Girl I am SO FUCKING PROUD OF YOU!! You go for pushing yourself out of your comfort zone! And those shoes really are YOU. I saw the picture and I was like “oh my god they are totally her”. I’m happy you’re happy (it seems to be rubbing off on me!) xxx

  8. My whole adult life I’ve wanted to have the guts to try a colored eyeliner outside of the house. I bought two sparkly ones years ago, blue and green, but never really put them to use. I really love the yellow look. I visualized the server and thought, I want that! The boots are freaking adorable. I’ve never had good views on Saturdays but that could just be my experience. I think it’s always better to experiment and see what works best for you. It was nice to read about your happiness this morning. It definitely made me happier too.

    1. I really like the yellow look too – I’m definitely going to push myself to try it! Have you experienced better views on Fridays instead?? I’m glad this post made you a little happier! xx


  9. is it just me or is it always very nice listening to people telling me about ordinary things that make them happy? glad everything is going well for you! X

  10. I have that same dilemma with my schedule! I still like posting on Saturdays because that’s the day I started but I feel like it’s such a long gap from Wednesday and I don’t think I can do 4 posts a week either! It’s struggle, but I think I’m going to keep the schedule until summer time and maybe revamp it?! I think a blogging schedule is so so difficult to change and it’s well annoying isn’t it?! I think you should do what you think is best, if you wanna change it to MWF then go for it! xxx
