My Current School Makeup Routine | Beauty

April 18, 2018

Hi Everyone!

I hope that you are all doing well and have had a lovely week so far! I have been incredibly busy for a while now, but I wanted to share with you today a quick post about Makeup.
So I really go through phases with makeup. I used to be a massive fan of it, and followed the trends, but then I stopped wearing it, and now I have started again.


Clean and Clear Deep Cleansing Lotion Review | Beauty

April 08, 2018

Hi everyone!

Happy Sunday. I hope that you are all well and have had a refreshing weekend. Today I have a review to share with you all.

I bought this product sometime last year while trying to find the Clean and Clear Deep Cleaning Astringent. I had been using the Astringent as a toner for some time, and I found it very penetrating and effective, but I couldn't find it in stores. I am sure that this product, the Clean and Clear Deep Cleansing Lotion, is the astringent renamed and in a different bottle. It smells the same, has the same consistency, feels the same on my skin... I don't know why Clean and Clear chose to rebrand it but it was very confusing for me, as I spent months looking to repurchase an astrigent which was now a lotion.

Back to School

A Little Bit of Study Motivation | Introducing... CreativelyRaye Revises

March 30, 2018

Hello Everyone!

I hope that everyone is having a wonderful Easter so far. I have been incredibly busy with school but hopefully when you see what is coming up, you can forgive me for my lack of posts here recently.

Although Easter for some is a time for relaxing and having fun, for others, it is the start of hardcore, serious revision for major exams. This is applicable for me because I begin my end of year examinations for the IB immediately after I go back to school. A whole week of exams, and less than a month away... oh dear. I am quite nervous, but I am preparing as much as I can for these, because I know that they are important and will contribute to grades which I use when I want to go to university. I know that other people have GCSE's and A Levels and AS's etc. which are also in a month or so, and there is no time like the present to start revising to ace them!

In lieu of this, today I am starting a new series on my blog which I am incredibly excited for, called CreativelyRaye Revises! I will be sharing lots of motivation, advice and tips on how to prepare and succeed in your exams. I have lots of very cool posts planned for this, so I hope that you can all benefit from them. There will still be lots of posts on other topics too, so please still keep up to date, even if you don't have exams.


The Exact Opposite of Okay- Review | Book Review

March 06, 2018

The Exact Opposite of Okay

by Laura Stevens

3.75-4 out of 5

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own.

So I would consider this to be my first completed book of the year, and it was an amazing one at that.

The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Stevens is a novel (to be honest I don’t know what genre to put it in- contemporary/ coming of age?) about a girl called Izzy, who is an aspiring comedian and screenwriter who life begins to fall apart when nude photos of her are leaked on the internet.
Izzy feels her life crumble away, making her lose almost everything which is important to her.
