The weather in Malta has finally cleared up and it's getting warmer every day! I love this time of the year when it's not too hot or too cold and the days are generally nicer although being in the middle of my A level exams has definitely made my recent weeks less enjoyable!

heels, shoes, FSJshoes wishlist, New Look heels

I was recently introduced to FSJshoes and I loved their collection of footwear. At FSJshoes you can find a lovely selection of heels including stilettos and 4 inch heels. If heels are not your cup of tea, then you can also find flats, oxfords and sandals among other things. In today's post I put together some of my favourite shoes that I wish I could have in my closet right now.

The Biggest Spring Trends of 2017

Wednesday, 5 April 2017

And without anybody realizing, another month has nearly flown by. 2017 is seriously going by way too fast! March has been an eventful month, both school-wise and life-wise. Despite everything I feel much better now and I am excited about blogging again. Now enough with the rambling and let's get to the actual point of today's post where I have rounded up some of my faves from March.

Spring Updates, 6 changes to make this Spring, spring cleaning

Now that Spring has begun, we can hopefully kiss the horrible cloudy weather goodbye although today is definitely not how the first day of Spring should be! In this post I am going to share my favourite ways to refresh and step into Spring on a much more positive note. (After last week's post where I went into a long rant about blogging, I felt like it's time for a new, much more cheerful one!)

Am I falling out of love with blogging?

Here I am yet again after disappearing for nearly a whole month from my blog. Shit happens and I won’t apologize this time. It’s currently 11 at night and I’m really tired so what will follow will mostly just be me word vomiting every single thought that I have on my mind. So be warned.

I have been blogging on and off for over two years. My blog is probably the only thing that I have ever been passionate about as I have never had a hobby that I actually enjoyed before so it is really special. But recently I haven’t been feeling the same.

I don’t even know the reason why I stopped blogging in the first place. To be honest it was a long time coming. The last time that I had properly blogged was in December when I was doing blogmas. I have only put out a couple of posts since the new year and I just felt like the whole blogging thing was starting to get overwhelming and what once made me happy, it now just stressed me out.

This stress stemmed from a lot of things. Firstly, I was stressed by the feeling that I need to write a post. This only made me feel unhappy with the posts that I finally managed to put together as they were not up to my standards. I felt like the writing was terrible and did not actually reflect what I wanted to say. They were just words that I put together in a hurry while trying to meet the deadline that I had set in my mind. All of this resulted in me burning out.

I no longer felt willing to sit down and write, take photos and edit. I began to see it as a chore instead of a hobby. I began to question myself a lot. Why were my posts so bad? Why were my photos never bright/good enough? Was anybody actually interested in what I was saying? All of these why’s!

So, for the past few weeks I just couldn’t write anymore. I blamed my exams for not writing but at the end of the day, I realized that I was actually just falling out of love with my blog and anything that had to do with it.

Am I falling out of love with blogging?

Suddenly Instagram and Bloglovin were just a place for me to feel worse about my content. Twitter was something that had never gotten the hold of and my tweets were just a bunch of links to posts which were probably there for nothing. I missed out on twitter chats and saw all the bloggers around me just having fun and I was there just observing.

Valentine's Day Outfit with Zaful

Thursday, 9 February 2017

Today's post is going to be a bit different as Deborah from Distorted Priorities and I have teamed up to share our January favourites so make sure to head over to Distorted Priorities to read all about my favourites.


Hi everybody! I’m super excited to be working with Sarah and writing a guest blog post on What Sarah Writes! By way of introduction, my name is Deborah and I am 19 years old. I am a second year student at the University of Malta taking a Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Accounting and Marketing! I have a passion for anything beauty & fashion related. Another hobby of mine is to explore the word and travel – that is basically what Distorted Priorities is all about! I started my blog last September and today I will be bringing you my January Favourites from fashion, makeup, music and youtubers. If you like what you read, make sure to ‘like’ Distorted Priorities on Facebook and follow us on social media (all links will be at the end of the post) so that you will not miss out any more blog posts! Wow that was long! Let’s get onto the post shall we?

Starting off with beauty products, I have 5 products in all! Let’s take a look at them!


I am a tiny bit obsessed with ColourPop and I’m building quite a collection. I recently purchased this colour which is like a terracotta colour which is perfect for those who want to switch from the usual red lipstick but still want to stay on these kinds of shades. I will link the ColourPop haul & swatches post I did on my blog at the end of the post if you’re interested in more detail into how it looks.

Well, this is a simple lip balm but with a barely visible light pink tint to it and I just love how moisturized my lips feel after I use it!

3. Flormar Mascara – Spider Lash 3 in 1

To be completely honest with you, when I first tried this mascara I did not like it at all! I did not like the length & volume it gave but after I tried a couple of times I have grown fond of it! Apart from being super affordable, I love the natural look it gives to my lashes and whenever I want to look somewhat presentable at university or when I’m making a quick errand I like to apply a coat or two of this mascara. You can find this mascara at any of the Flormar outlets in Malta. 

I recently purchased two Morphe Palettes from CultBeauty that I have been wanting for the longest time and when I made this purchase I received this blush palette for free. I love it because it comes with

9 different shades so you simply carry it with you and you’ll always find a shade that will suit your makeup look.

The last beauty related product is the Milani Everydy Makeup Palette. Again, I will link the post I did on the whole haul and swatches but I love this palette because you can create multiple looks from it, being a simple one or a smokey eye kind of look.

Moving on to clothing I have this chunky knitted black & white scarf that I carry around me wherever I go. During my exams, I used to wear this thing around my neck ALL-THE-TIME since it was super chilly and it would keep me so warm whether I was taking an exam or studying at the library. I had purchased mine from Mango.

I am SLIGHTLY obsessed with music and thank God a lot of new singles came out as soon as 2017 began! Apart from new singles (and a LOT of Bruno Mars songs) I have been replaying some oldies

I have been recently obsessed with vlogs from youtubers that I have been watching for a while now – my top 3 favourites would be Jeanine Amapola , Alisha Marie & Tara Michelle. I have also been binge-watching makeup tutorials by Jaclyn Hill. Recently, I discovered about this couple that are youtubers – Gabriel & Jess Conte who recently got married and I got to know their story and I have been obsessed with their vlogs! I’m a sucker for anything romantic, what can I do?

That brings us to the end of the post! Thank you so much for taking time out of your day to read this post! I hope you enjoyed it and I hope to see you over on Distorted Priorities.

P.S.: I may or may not be here again very soon! #staytuned
