First Driving Lesson!

Helloooo everyoooneee!

Happy Monday! haha only joking but I actually had a very happy monday today because (as the title gives it away) I had my first every driving lesson! yaaay!

I was SUPER excited today and just couldn't wait to get on the road but I do have to admit, for months and months I was absolutely PETRIFIED.

When it actually came around to booking my first lesson, that's when I got really excited and I just said to myself, 'look at all the people out there that drives, like c'mon Destinee' lol.

But seriously, if anybody out there that is by any chance reading my blog and feels very nervous or scared about driving, just have one lesson! It's not as scary as you think it is plus, if your lucky like me, you'll get a lovely driving instructor and they will help you control your fear.

Sorry it's a short one today, I was just super excited! 

Do you drive? Tell me about your driving experiences!xx

P.S. I was really considering not putting this photo up but its the only one I had haha x

What's In My College Bag?x

Hey Guys, hope your all doing well!

Today I am giving you a tour of my handbag that I take to college everyday and all of my essentials in it! Enjooooy!

I bought my handbag from Primark, costing me £9 which is a total BARGIN! It's fits everything I need and yet I still have lots more room in my bag to throw something else in it. It also came with a pouch that matches and can clip onto the strap which is very handy for me because then I can put all my little things such as my antibacterial gel, hairbands, a pink love heart compact mirror, Zoella 'Let's Spritz!', a mini little deodorant and other things that come in use when I'm out.

I then have my books that I use everyday. From left to right, my 'Pin me, Friend me, Follow me, Like me' Notebook made by Jim Chapman. I find this notebook super cute and I use this all the time, infact I have two, one for college and the other just for notes. Next to that is my 15-16 page a day Diary by Collins to note down if I have to finish anything off at home or just for reminders. I also have my timetable and other important pieces of paper in there. Lastly I have the book I'm currently reading, stuffed in my bag. I bring a book everywhere with me and I have been reading this book for sooooo long but I never have the time to finish it! It's called 'Evermore' by Alyson Noel and it's just an amazing book and well worth the buy!

Lying around my bag I also have key's with keyrings from Brighton, the Brighton Wheel, a Shamrock, Disney Land Paris, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory 'Golden Ticket' and my USB so my keys are the most awkward and difficult things to carry around.

I have a cute pencil case with Bokeh effect love hearts all over it. Inside is pretty boring so I won't waste my little fingers typing lol. I also have the usual stuff that I have to have at college like a ruler, a folder and colouring pencils because you know, you need them at some point lol.

And that is pretty much it, I use this bag everyday and I find it is perfect because it is not too big but yet fits everything in it!

                                             What do you have in your college/school bag?

My Everyday Makeup Products!x


It feels like it's been FOREVER since I last blogged but I'm back now! :D

This whole week I've been absolutely CLUELESS on what to blog about for this week and I was thinking about it for too long that I came to the decision of posting my everyday makeup products!

                                                          So here it is! Hope you enjoy!

Starting of with Primer, I have used so many before and my usual favorite is Smashbox Photo Finish primer. I find that it makes my foundation blend so well with it. At the moment I am using L'oreal Studio Secrets Professional just to try it out as I bought it in duty free. I have been using it for over three weeks now and I have pros and cons. Pros being that it is a great primer and does the job but cons being the fact that it's a creme primer it feels very thick and I feel like I'm caking my primer on whereas it should feel like a thin layer. I apply this with my fingers.

Next is my AMAZING but yet ridiculously expensive foundation. I wear NARS Sheer Glow in shade Deauville (Light 4) atleast 5 days a week. For my particular skin type, pink and yellow toned, I find that this foundation is not as good for lasting without primer. Other than that it's the best foundation I've ever had for coverage and colour match. I first apply this with my Real Techniques, expert face brush, then go over it with my Beauty Blender which I apologies for it looking so dirty!

After foundation is my concealer which I'm iffy about. I don't know, somedays I LOVE it and others I wish I would throw it away but I always seem to go back to Superdrug and buy the same concealer every time. I use Rimmel's Wake Me Up Concealer ( not sure on the shade) and I do agree it is a good concealer but I think I just need to find the right one for me. I apply this the wand it comes with and blend out with my fingers.

Following concealer is bronzers and these past months I've been using a few. Ive had Benefits Hoola which is amazzzzzing! Only thing is I'm quite light skinned so it's a little too dark for me unless I had a smokey eye going with it. After that I've had Bourjois Paris Delice de Poudre ( I know it's spelt wrong, I don't know how to find accents on this computer, sorry!) This smells SO nice but I felt like the product didn't come off well on my brush. I use a black brush that has no name on it so I don't have a clue where it's from (sorry again lol) I think it's just a simple, small blush brush. BUT the world greatest bronzer I use is Rimmel's Sun Shimmer in Light Matte. Words can't explain how much I LOVE this bronzer, I feel like I can put as much on that I like and still feel weightless. Also The colour matches me well.

Next is Blusher and I'm saying this now.... sorry mum! The blusher that I use at the moment is Estee Lauder and because it is missing from my mum's makeup bag for a while now I don't have a clue what it's called! But I love this blusher as its a mixture of colours such as pinks, browns and golds with a little bit of shimmer! :)

That's all for my actual face, my next step is mascara. I believe that mascara is the most important and I can not leave the house without it on my eyelashes and in my bag! I feel like it makes people look totally different and opens up their eyes more. I'm at the moment using Maybelline The Falsies Volume Express. I adore it but sometimes I change up and use Benefit's They're Real or Benefits Bad Gal Lash.

And Lastly I have to control my brows. I use Eyeko Brow Gel Shape and Define and I absolutely loooooooove this product! It lasts for hours and I always get compliments on my brows when I wear it.

My big Pink makeup bag is from primark, I got it for a birthday present from my big sister with a birthday badge pinned on it :) This one is full off my products. My second make up bag is full off my brushes and it is a Zoella Beauty bag from Superdrug.
Here's the final look ( with eyeliner and false lashes sorrrrrry again! I was going to my best mates 18th!) with all the products I mentioned above. I love my makeup and I love getting more and trying new stuff out! If you have any recommendations for me to use and review tell me and I will totally check them out!

Starting a College Full of Animals! x

Hey Guys!

So this week I started my new college! I'm studying Animal Management and even though I've only done one week, it is so fun and I'm having such a great laugh.

I've made awesome new mates called Niamh, Lucy and Charlotte and we just have the best laugh during lessons and on our lunch break. I'm so glad I've met these girls, they're so lovely.

The next bonus is the fact that I'm studying animal management I get to spend most of my time with animals. The animals we have in our college are chickens, rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, pigs, ferrets (they're so cute but smell SO bad!), rats, chinchillas, bearded dragons, snakes, turtles, tortoises, tarantulas, cockroaches, giant African snail, budgies, stick insects and a few more. We are also getting, within the year, goats and geese and ducks,

I honestly LOVE my college and my friends and have never felt happier and most welcome in a school environment.

P.S Lucy does have a head, she just thought the puppy was cuter lol

How I Deal With Panic Attacks x

Hey Guys! Hope your all doing good!

This blog is a bit on the down side :( (sorry) but hopefully I can reach out to the people that feel the same as I do.

Cutting to the chase, lately I've had quite bad anxiety and been having a lot of panic attacks. Sometimes there's a reason for getting a panic attack, for example I would be on a packed train and feel like something bad is going to happen to me because there are so many people on this train that I don't know. But thinking about it now (when I don't feel panicy) I know nothing AT ALL is going to happen to me! The millions of different people that go on all different trains all around the world and nothing at all happens to them! I suppose I just think of the bad stuff all the time because when you watch the news or pick up a newspaper the headlines are always a bad story. My Nan always used to say 'I don't watch the news because its always bad news' But that's because they don't give enough credit to the people that save lives and the people with good hearts, which there are millions of people out there.

I could also get panic attacks over the fact if I took a full breath but feel like it wasnt full enough, I would feel like there's something wrong with my lungs or something? It is a horrible feeling and situation to be in but honestly nothing at all is wrong! Your body and your breathing is perfectly fine, it's all in your head. Anxiety can't kill you, neither can a panic attack.

I sometimes feel like I'm stupid telling people that I can't go places because I'm too scared to go without someone really close to me like my mum but the truth is I'm not normal but neither is anybody else in the world. Everyone has their downs and their ups and that just makes them who they are.

I hope this helped anyone in the same situation that I'm in.
Let me know if you suffer with anxiety and how you deal with it.

Hey Bloggers!

I know I said I'd upload once every week but I just couldn't resist not blogging, I LOVE it!

So you guys don't know much about me so here's a little bit for you to find out...

I'm a 17 year old girl living in London. Most of my time is spent with my boyfriend (mostly watching him play football for his team, on fifa and watch him watch football on tv lol) , my time is also spent alot by gaming on my ps4 and new computer. I play games such as GTA, COD, Gary's Mod, Team fortress 2, Minecraft and the list goes on.....

I also manage to fit in my life the fact that I'm a BIG youtuber fan ! My favorite youtuber is Oli White but a close second is KSI and The Sidemen but I still really like Zoella, Louise, Joe Sugg& Joe Weller, Caspar Lee and a few more.

 I hope this will bring me closer to other youtuber fans hopefully all over the world! Would love to hear about who your favorite youtubers are and what you get up to in your spare time!
