I'd spent way too much time lusting over Colourpop items so when I saw they had free international shipping the exact weekend that I received my student finance payment I just couldn't resist making an order. While the shipping was free, I did receive a rather hefty customs free of £26.02...baring in mind my order only came to $84; although I did expect a customs fee I didn't expect it to be quite high. I might in the future try to use a shipping company rather than ordering directly from Colourpop to my address, as I've seen people don't tend to get hit with customs fees if they do this...although knowing my luck I'll still get hit with one.
I'm not quite sure how this little space on the internet has reached its first birthday! While this post is technically a day late going up, it has officially been a year since I made my first post on Aesthetic Obsessed. I didn't even bother writing a post to introduce myself and instead jumped with a 'What's in my makeup bag' post.
Since it is mental health awareness week I did think it was the right time to actually talk about my mental health the experience I’ve had with doctors and counselling services. So mental health is something I’ve struggled with from my early teenage years, starting off with anxiety and issues with my body brought on by years of endless bullying…
When I spotted Birchbox on myunidays app I was quick to order my first box, especially as website advertised a spectrum collection brush being included. I was extremely excited to receive my box but when I did I was mildly disappointed with the products included. Yes, the box is absolutely gorgeous with its marble and pastel pink design, but there was zero reason for it to look like that unless you'd been lucky enough to receive a spectrum brush.
So I've been wanting to post more fashion and style related posts on my blog for a while now...well pretty much since I first started it. So when I had my friend Cee J pop down to London for a photography session I obviously grasped the opportunity to have him take a few outfit photos for me.
If you follow me on Twitter, Snapchat or Instagram (shameless self-promo), you'll know that as well as being a blogger I am also a university student. At this current moment in time, I am wrapping up my second year and getting ready to move into my final year as an undergraduate student. Now I also work a zero hours job which often pays for things to keep my blog going (such as the beautiful template I have, and also being self-hosted) therefore I am a rather busy bee...to put it lightly.
Aesthetic Obsessed is a lifestyle, beauty and fashion blog while also remaining a place in which Alicia can ramble and talk about anything her heart desires. She is very much a lipstick junkie and is always suffering from wanderlust with an extremely high desire to travel and see the world.
