How To Prepare Your Phone For A Disney Trip

Visiting a Disney park is a dream come true. Not every Disney fan is lucky enough to be able to visit a park in their life. If you are lucky enough, you’ll want to make sure that you’re all ready to make your time as magical as possible.

It’s not only important to get yourself ready but you need to prep your phone too.

I don’t think that people realise how important their phone is for the perfect Disney trip. Everything used to come on paper several years ago. You had your fastpasses on paper, your maps on paper and you had your meal reservations on paper. But, those days are gone. Everything is digital which makes your phone so much more important than you would think.

My Relationship With Make Up

I remember when I when I was around 10 years old. I had a friend who absolutely loved wearing make up. She would practise by putting it all over me and practising different styles.

I admired her a lot. She was majorly skilled and as we grew older, she just became more and more talented. She kept using me as her guinea pig and I enjoyed every minute of it.

I came to a realisation that I was much more beautiful with make up on my face. I felt more me and more confident. I felt like it was a way for me to express myself.

Slowly but surely, I started buying my own make up and testing it out on myself. I would beg my mum for money for make up and head to Body Care with my friend to buy as much eyeshadow and lipgloss as possible. Turns out though, I was completely rubbish at applying it on myself.

I kept asking my friend to help me and she tried but I still couldn’t do it. She taught me all about foundations, different shades, what order to apply everything and different brush styles. To be honest, I was still all confused!

I wasn’t going to give up there though. At the age of around 13, I started watching YouTube videos and tutorials all about make up. I learnt and studied every single day. When I turned 14, I got my first boyfriend who I wanted to look good for. I used that as motivation to keep on learning. I figured, he would only like me if I was pretty and to be pretty, I needed to wear make up.

So, I finally learnt how to apply it. Not well but good enough!

When I turned 16, I got a new boyfriend. He would tell me that he liked my face much more natural. I couldn’t believe it, I had finally learnt how to apply make up and now he wasn’t interested at all.

So, I gave up!

I stopped wearing make up. I have hardly worn it from then up to the age of 22 which I am now. I wear it for special occasions and to take selfies but apart from that, I hardly wear it.

But, if you read one of my latest posts, you’ll know that I’m trying to get my life back together. That includes wearing make up. Yes, I feel better with it on. No, it’s not because I’m ugly. It’s because it’s a way for me to express myself and show who I want to be.

So this is me, saying to you, that I’m going to wear make up again. I’m going to regain my love for it and I’m going to start practising all over again.

Top Tips To Save Up Money Even If You’re Rubbish At Saving

1… Get yourself a savings jar! This is pretty much the basic savings tip. You will need a jar of some kind to collect money in.

2… Collect loose change. This tip may sounds a little far fetched but try picking up money from the floor or scooping up money from the bottom of your handbag. I’m sure you will find a lot of money over time in those places.

3… Stop spending the 1ps, 2ps and 5ps. Simon and I used to spend every single penny. But now, whenever we get some change back from shopping, we keep it and collect it in the jar. Anything that is 10p and over can be kept to spend on but anything under needs to be kept in a jar for savings.

4… Prioritise. You will need to decide what you want to spend your money on and what is not so important. For example, getting a Starbucks on your way to work isn’t as important as paying bills and rent. Once you have stopped spending money on the less important stuff, you’ll notice yourself having more spare money.

5… Stop collecting and start selling. I’m sure by now, you own plenty of stuff. Some of it you will love but other items not so much. That is why you should go through everything you own and decide what you wish to keep and what you wish to get rid of. You can sell unwanted items on online stores such as eBay, depop and vinted.

6… Take advantage of swaps. If you’re looking for something in a shop, take a minute to really think about it. If you want something then you could probably get it from someone else. Ask around if anyone wants to do a swap with you. You can swap books, clothing and even collectibles.

What tips and tricks do you have for people who are wanting to save a little extra money?
