Huge Milestone...

Hi guys I am so happy right now. I logged onto my account and saw I have reached 1003 views altogether on my blog. I would like to give a little thanks to EVERYONE who has been reading my posts even though I'm late in posting sometimes. It feels good to be a blogger, it's just an awesome feeling and a way to unwind, especially since I have my GCSE's at the moment. I don't even know what to say. I'm literally sitting here with a blank look on my face haha. Just thank you once again.

Any ways I was going to write a post called "Golden Goddess" but I might as well include it into this one. So yeah, I put up a new video over the weekend. Someone requested me to re-create a look and well since I didn't know what products were used in that picture, I did an inspired look. My version of it is quite toned down but its simple to build up the colour as I explained in the video. If you'd like to watch it here it is:
Please ignore the thumbnail haha

I hope you try out the look and if you do tweet me your recreations at @redintoxination I'd love to see the way you've interpreted it :D
That's all for now because it is Sunday and I gotta go have a bath and start revising, like hardcore, so talk to you guys soon :) xxx

P.S. Lately I've been updated frequently and not late, I hope to continue like this. But if I don't I hope you guys will understand it is cause I have exams :)

Facts About Me...

Hi hi hi guys :D How are you all doing? I'm very good in case you're wondering lol. I am actually laughing whilst writing this, I don't know, I'm in a laughing mood today :D Anyways if you don't already know I set up my beauty channel on YouTube during spring break. But yes on YouTube I got a request from MeeniMisa and I hope she is reading this because I know she is a reader, if you are reading this I thank you so much for the support and the suggestion :) Like I was saying she suggested I do a "facts about me" video which I ave done and you can view down below. But I thought I would actually do a post about it too so if you'd rather read, you can. So let's get straight into it :D
  1. I was born on 23rd December 1996
  2. I was supposed to be born on Christmas Day. Like how cool would that be. When I was younger I used to get Christmas prezzies as well as birthday ones. But as I grew older I understooad that Christmas isn't a holiday of my religion so I stopped getting double prezzies.
  3. My favourite colour is red. Well technically red, black and purple are my favourite colours but red is the top one :D
  4. My height is 5ft 11inches. Yup, I am pretty tall. My dad is like 6ft4 or something like tha and my mom is 5ft5 I think so it's pretty much in my genes. Sometimes I wished I wasn't this tall because I can't wear heels often.
  5. I have a real bad phobia of heights, I just cannot stand it, it's actually really bad though.
  6. My two favourite singers are Avril Lavigne and Justin Bieber. I have been a "Little Black star"/fan of Avril since I was like 9 or 10 years old. I have been a Belieber since 2010 :)
  7. My favourite number is 7 haha :D
  8. My favourite food is potato. Any type of potato, I just love 'em ;D
  9. I like being weird and I am very strange
  10. I have equally weird friends which is where I think I picked up the weirdness lol
  11. I love food loads but I have fast metabolism so erm I don't put on weight? erm some people think it's a good thing but it kind of causes me real issues er yeah
  12. I have been singing since I was 5 years old 
  13. I have been song writing since I was 9/10 years old
  14. I get moody a LOT. I'm either really hyper or really moody 
  15. I love wearing black clothes, like my wardrobe has pretty much black clothes lol
  16. I love cats. I've always grown up around cats and I've had 3 cats and 2 stray cats which y 2 sisters loved but we gave them to the vets to take care of :)
  17. My favourite animal is PANDA BEARS. Just so cute :')
  18. I have known my best friend Maryam for 11 years, basically since we were in year 1 :D
  19. I know this is stupid and most people have been bullied but I have been bullied since a really young age about various different things
  20. After midnight I tend to get really hyper and mental and my mother gets worried lol
  21. I love McDonalds food, just so yummy :D
  22. I would like to have a job, a side job like on weekends etc, as a makeup artist/beautician :D
  23. I love KIWIS. My favourite fruit of all time :DD
I hope you have enjoyed and thanks again to the girl who suggested it, keep your suggestions coming through and I shall talk to you guys again real soon :) xxx

Music post after such a long time...

Hi guys I feel like I haven't talked to my wonderful readers in like forever when in fact it was probably only a week or 2 ago, right? But then again that was a very small post, from when I was in bed and I probably didn't even make sense since I was that tired. Any ways as usual I have gone of topic but basically I haven't written a music post in like forever. So this is going to be a music post yay! So last week on the 14th Dot SE (formerly known as One2Five) had a live chat, where they released their 2nd cover as Dot SE. I was literally so excited and was sitting there, waiting on their Facebook page for them to post the link. Once it was posted I quickly clicked onto it and listened to the cover straight away. I was so happy to see it was a cover of Chris Brown Fine China, which is actually one of my favourite songs at the moment. It was just so perfect that they actually sang my favourite song, at the time, and they did it so well. The harmonies were good and the way the 4 voices blended together was awesome. The music video they did with it was perfect too and just overall it was a good cover with a good video.
To listen to the song for yourself, check out the video below:

Then this Sunday gone on the 21st there was another Twitcam to release another cover which was a sort of gift if we got the Fine China cover to 500 views and I think we got it to above that in one day, I'm not definite but we ended up getting the views so we got a new cover from them. This week I was busy so I couldn't watch the Twitcam but I read about it on someone's blog, Farhaana, and then saw the video posted on the Facebook page which was Selena Gomez Come and Get It and I got to say I haven't managed to listen to it well enough to take it all in but I will say it sounds really good and I know I will enjoy it once I hear it properly. Once again to listen to that cover, check out the video below:

Oooh I forgot to mention. There first cover as Dot SE was released last month and it was Demi Lovato Heart Attack which was INCREDIBLE and I just loved it, loads. I thought I should mention that now as I obviously haven't mentioned it before so yes. Once again, to listen, check it out below:

Okay so that's all I shall be writing this time round because it is just about half 11 and I need to get ready for bed because I am always late to school and I cannot afford to be late again tomorrow. So I hope you enjoy reading this short post and I shall take to you lot again soon :) xxx

I am very tired....

Hi guys I thought I'd do a quick blog post as I am lying in my bed. It is 5.30ish am and I have no idea why I am awake. I have literally been watching Zoella's vlogs, I'll probably link her when I get to my laptop tomorrow, from Florida and catching up with all the awesome people I am subscribed too who were also in Florida. And yeah basically been awake, on YouTube, on my phone, in bed for about 2-3 hours. Yes I know I am mental. But yeah that's all I wanted to say. A bit of a random post probably because I'm tired now, I have no idea what I am on about or why I am writing this. So goodnight from me and talk to you guys soon :) xxx

Update: This is now 1 week later and I am now posting a link to her channel, she is awesome along with all the other awesome YouTubers :) <Her regular beauty channel<Her vlog channel

Annoying Times...

Hi guys so I wanted to upload a video onto here but it doesn't work so I am annoyed. I even made it, edited it and all. There are times like this where I really begin to wish to start a YouTube channel, not that I don't have one, just ain't got no videos uploaded. It's just so annoying. I spent all that time making a video for my readers and it just didn't work, so I am very angry and frustrated. I am literally typing away in anger at 11.06pm :L
Okay so like I might start uploading videos onto YouTube because like this is really annoying me. This is pretty much a short post and all I have to say. End of rant. What do you guys think? Should I move towards the YouTube community. I will still of course post here because this is where it all started I guess. So erm, if you could let me know in the comments below or contact me through my twitter etc :)
Talk to you guys soon :) xxx
