Going To Therapy As A Highly Sensitive Person

I'm having one of these weird aha moments. After going down a spiral of anger, disgust, mistrust and feelings of deception towards my therapist, I think I have finally found some clarity. I was about to cancel my appointment again when I decided to google whether highly sensitive people (HSP) require a specific type of counseling. Which we don't (as far as I know), but we do need a counselor who is aware and respectful towards that fact, and I can't say that the mental health professionals I've been in touch with have been.

Catrice HD Liquid Coverage Foundation

When I spotted this Catrice HD Liquid Coverage Foundation in the press release of the Fall/Winter makeup collection update from Catrice Cosmetics, it immediately made it into my wish list. Even though it's been a while since I've purchased a Catrice foundation, I knew a lot of you would be interested and I would lie if I said I wasn't the least bit intrigued. The packaging is eye catching and the product looks really promising. Will the Catrice HD Liquid Coverage Foundation be your new staple? Let's have a look!

Therapy Update⎜I Cancelled

I've touched on this subject before, not the fact that I'm considering going to another mental health professional, but that my current therapist doesn't want to confirm that I actually suffer from anxiety and that, before I became her patient, I was so depressed they wanted to send to a mental health care facility. When I ask her what's wrong with me, she says I'm normal; when I ask her to label me she becomes defensive; when I ask her what I am being treated for she wanders around my question, saying we can talk about what I feel comfortable with.

Catrice Matt Lip Artist Review & Swatches

A great matte lipstick is not hard to find, but a great low budget matte lipstick is not available in every drugstore, so Catrice Cosmetics released their 6h Matt Lip Artists. They have 7 different shades available that come in sleek, black, matte packaging, indicating the color of every lipstick at the bottom. I purchased 070 First bROWn Ticket, a dark red, should you buy it or leave it? Let's have a look!

Primark PS PRO Flat Edge Blender Review

After the launch of the Primark PS PRO makeup line, Primark Beauty added some new PS PRO makeup tools to their shelves. One of them is the blue, non latex Flat Edge Blender that retails for only €2.50-. I love applying my makeup with a great quality makeup sponge, it makes for a beautiful, flawless finish to the skin and a lightweight and airbrushed feel. I've tried Primark makeup sponges before and to be honest it was quite disastrous, did Primark Beauty step up their game? Let's have a look!

The Day My Mom Wanted To Die Was The Day I Decided To Live - #WorldSuicidePreventionDay

Today, exactly one year ago, I received the most terrifying phone call of my life. My mom, completely pilled out, on the other side of the telephone line terribly heart broken, wanting to die. She told me how she tried to commit suicide, by overdosing on sleeping pills, trying to cut her wrist, then overdosing on sleeping pills again, and failed. She had no notion of what she was doing and doesn't recollect this phone call, but I remember it like it just happened yesterday.

Catrice Cosmetics Prime & Fine Multitalent Fixing Spray Review

Makeup setting sprays have definitely been on the rise this past year, they've become the ultimate essential in everyone's makeup routine and Catrice Cosmetics (finally) decided not to miss out on the hype! When I think of makeup setting sprays my thoughts immediately go to the MAC Prep & Prime, the Urban Decay All Nighter and many other high end, cult beauty products. Low budget brands have yet to strike with an amazing setting spray. Did Catrice Cosmetics hit the nail on the head with their Prime & Fine Multitalent Fixing Spray? Let's have a look.
