Sticky Note Planner

Hey guys it's Lia,
So recently I have been extremely busy and un-organised so I went on search for ways to help me in becoming organised when I found this project on Pinterest but it was originally a sticky note to-do list. I loved the look but wasn’t a fan of how much paper would be wasted by actually using it long term – so I put the sticky notes behind glass so then I could use it long term and just use a dry-erase marker to write down my to-do's.

I started by labelling your top row of sticky notes.  I used the headings: Now, This Week, This Month, Whenever, and Someday because then I could use my time to complete the things that i needed to do now but if I have spare time I can do something in the this week or month category, but if you would be more organized by making a weekly calendar by putting the days of the week at the top row.

Next lay out your sticky notes in a grid.  I used the backing that came with the frame as my background but you could also go with some coloured card as a backing. The I used a ruler to measure the space in between each sticky note and then stuck it down. Once you have the layout the way you like it, I would recommend using some glue to reinforce everything.

Now just hang it on the wall and using a dry erase marker write onto the the glass what your plans are and feel super organized. Also, don’t forget to store a small dry erase marker on top for easy access.

L'Oreal Paris Infallible Matte Foundation

Hey guys it Lia,

I have been using this foundation on a daily basis for the past few weeks so thought it was about time I shared my review with you all.
I initially picked this up as my skin had been going through an extreme acne phase and it was extremely oily, so I went on a hunt for a foundation that could help. I thought that a more medium-high coverage foundation would be perfect and was intrigued to try a matte finish,because my previous foundation was quite glossy and made me look so shiny due to my oil infested face. Plus it was a great price of only £7.99 – bargain!

The foundation itself has quite a thick-ish consistency and the pigmentation is really impressive; a small drop goes a long way and achieves a high coverage.
Due to my acne I do wear colour correcting powder and concealer but with my previous foundation you could still see redness and the smallest of bumps,however this foundation gives good coverage with out looking all blotchy and helps hide those smaller spots (I would just like to say that no foundation is going to hide your spots your always going to see the bumps with bigger spots so don't cake on foundation).This foundation also lasts really well even with oily skin although I do have to touch up a bit during the day but its not a big issue.
Overall I have loved this foundation and would recommend it to you guys,go try it and tell me what you think.
