The Green Button Campaign | Introduction

If you follow my Instagram and Twitter, you would’ve seen that I’ve been talking and sharing a lot about The Green Button Campaign. If you don’t know what The Green Button Campaign is, let me explain it to you. 

The Green Button Campaign is a campaign founded by Chaz and co-founded by Megan. Chaz decided to create this campaign because Mental Health Awareness Week is in May (14th till 20th) and she wants to raise awareness for mental health and mental illnesses. The Green Button Campaign is a group of bloggers and influencers from all niches to help spread the word by creating blog posts about mental health, sharing mental health-related posts, … We are going to post a lot of content during Mental Health Awareness Week and after Mental Health Awareness Week, we are going to continue with our campaign. Little fact: Chaz decided to call this campaign The Green Button Campaign because green is often recognised as a colour of awareness for mental health issues and Button because buttons hold everything together.

Mental Health Awareness Week is in May, but we already have done some things. Some of the bloggers from our campaign have already made an introduction post and we even held two Twitter chats! The Twitter chats are held every Tuesday 8 PM-9 PM GMT.

I also wanted to say something about why I joined the campaign. As my readers know, I’ve been struggling with anxiety, depression and self-harm and therefore I wanted to join a campaign to help spread the word about mental health and that it’s okay to talk about it. I can proudly say that I’m a Head Campaigner for the campaign and I’m in charge of the graphics & art!
If you would like to join our campaign, make sure to email us at admin@thegreenbuttoncampaign.com! We would love to have you on our team and there are multiple ways to be able to help us with our campaign!

I Heart Revolution Chocolate Orange pink make-up look | Tutorial

I Heart Revolution Chocolate Orange I recently wrote a review of the I Heart Revolution Chocolate Orange palette because I was so intrigued by the colours and I loved the smell of the palette. I created two different looks (which you can see in my review) and today I’m going to tell you how I created the first look, the pink look. I really liked the pink colours and I wanted to create something soft.

Make sure to check out my review and I hope you guys like this look as much as I do!

1. Prime your eyelids so that the colour payoff is 100%.
2. Use the light pink shade as a base colour.
3. Use the darker pink in the crease.
4. Use the highlighter shade as well as another shimmer shade on your eyelid.
5. Draw a small winged liner.
6. Apply some mascara as well as some lashes. (I forgot to take a picture when I did my lower lash line. The colours that I used are the same colours that I used in 2 and 3.)
7. Use the highlight shade as a highlighter.
8. And the final step is lipstick!

Independence Realm | Review

Title: Independence Realm 
Author: Kevin J. Bernadt
Pages: 278 pages
Version: Paperback (ARC)
Publisher: Independence Realm Publishing
Rating: ★★


This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Kevin J. Bernadt.

Independence Realm tells the story of three teenagers, Allets, Ryan and Maria, who end up in another realm, Independence Realm, by accident. The three friends were enjoying their summer break until all of a sudden there was a storm and that storm led them to Independence Realm. Arrived in Independence Realm they soon figure out that they are destined to save Independence Realm from the king and queen, but will they be able to succeed?

Independence Realm was such a slow read, but at the same time a fast read. Everything that happened to the characters went by so fast and they could handle everything so easily. Everything was never a real effort for the characters and that made the book go fast. But it was also a slow read because I didn’t really get into the book. It wasn’t that interesting and kind of boring. Don’t get me wrong, I really like the concept, but I think that the story is just not that well written.

The characters of Independence Realm are so obvious and stereotypical. The characters are also not in-depth, they are shallow and they easily accept that they have to save Independence Realm and they easily talk to strangers. Independence Realm is also full of slang which annoyed me.

I guess you can say that this is Kevin J. Bernadt’s first novel because it’s not that well written and the story needs some depth. I wish I liked this story because the concept sounds really interesting!

When We Collided inspired make-up look | Tutorial

When We Collided I really loved When We Collided because it’s such a beautiful book and mental health is really important for this story. I couldn’t help creating an inspired make-up look, because I really liked the colours on the cover. I know, I went a little overboard with green but I was just so excited lol. I also tried something new by creating this double pink liner. Due to my hooded eyes, you cannot always see it but I still wanted to create it. It’s something new and I really like it and I cannot wait to experiment with it more!

I hope you guys like this tutorial and make sure to check out the book!

1. First things first: prime your eyelids with some eyeshadow primer and set it with a white/light eyeshadow.
2. Use a green eyeshadow all over your eyelid and crease.
3. Make a winged liner and a liner in the crease with a pink eyeliner.
4. Use a yellow (or two) shade as an inner corner shade.
5. Fill in your waterline with a blue eyeliner and smudge it with a blue eyeshadow.
6. Apply some mascara and lashes.
7. Something extra: I used a green highlighter in my inner corner and on my brow bone.
8. Highlight your entire face (just kidding!).
9. And the final step is lipstick!
