Current favourite Pinterest boards

Hello everyone!

Apologies for the lack of post, unfortunately some unexpected events happened leaving little time to takes photos and blog. So for this week only Wednesday's blog post is going up on a Thursday woooop!

And for today's post I will be showing you 3 boards I've been loving on Pinterest:

Autumn themed boards
Pinner: Jillbeans1963

Okay, so yes it maybe just a tad early to be thinking about Autumn, but I'm afraid I just can't help myself. Autumn is quite literally my favourite season EVER. And on a better note Autumn officially arrives in the UK September 23rd 2015 which is in only 47 days away!! So just about a month and 2 weeks away like WOOOOW! So feeling the Autumn spirit I've been pinning like mad, no joke I have about 3-4 Autumn themed boards which you can see for your self here. (Shameless self advertising) But anyway, this board contains stunning Autumn images that will make you forget that its even Summer, unless you live in a really hot country then maybe not haha! However this board is a definite one to go peep at if you're wishing to add to any fall or Autumn themed boards!

Inspiring words boards
Board: Words
Pinner: Bethanytrue93

Since around January this year I've really loved pinning inspiring word pictures, particularly those that are also beautifully illustrated. When in need of such I find my self on this board looking for any I wish to add to my own inspirational words board, and with this board constantly being updated I've literally loved coming back to this board time and time again to see what's been added. A definite recommend if you're in need of some inspiring quotes.

Baking boards
Pinner: TheRebeccaCoco

I've actually been a long time reader of Rebecca Coco's blog and even her YouTube channel so of course I followed her on Pinterest, which I have done for some time now. And with it being the Great British Bake Off season I've literally been so obsessed with expanding my own baking board and finding inspiration to bake my own goodies! It just so happens that Rebecca has a HUGE wonderful baking board with over 1k pins with all the inspiration one could need! So if you're ever looking to bake something completely new I would once again definitely recommend this board.

So there are 3 boards I have recently been loving!
Be sure to let me know if you liked this kind of post and maybe it can a kind of monthly thing where I show you really wonderful Pinterest boards. 
Also if you yourself have Pinterest be sure to link it down below so I can totally follow you and check out your board ehe!

Thank you so much for reading and there *should* be a brand spanking new post up for you TOMORROW!<3

Malaga 2015 -Photos

Okay so I'm super sorry to anyone who tried to view this blog and be told it doesn't exist! For some unknown reason Blogger decided to draft my blog post and deleted all the text I had typed up to with which is unbelievably annoying, but hey ho here's round two.

Hello everyone!

So some of you may or may not know, that I went on holiday at the beginning of July to Malaga, Spain, with my best friend Izzy for 6 days. It was honestly such an amazing holiday and it was actually my first holiday on my own without any parents, which was scary being the responsible one with all the important documents, but thankfully all went relatively smoothly, phew!

So in terms of things we got up to while on holiday, we did spend ALOT of time sun bathing and chilling by the pool which was nice just to relax and get super tanned. Although getting really tan has it downsides of super bad tan lines oops.

But anyway we did actually leave the hotel and did some exploringof the local attractions. We visited Malaga beach, port and even Malaga park. Malaga park by the way is a definite must see as its absolutely stunning, and even has a little cafe halfway through it where you can stop for a bite to eat or even a cocktail if you're feeling naughty! While at Malaga port we booked to go on swimming at sea boat trip which was AMAZ-ing! Honestly such a fun time on it. While still in Malaga city we went shopping at the local malls and bought lots of clothes and make up so don;t be surprised if a haul pops up around here..

As well as that we also took a train to Costa Del Sol and Los Bliches. While at Costa Del Sol we went to visit its tourist areas such as its strip of restaurants all facing its gorgeous golden beaches, again a must see! Also while at Los Bliches we visited the Roman park which was filled with Roman Ruins which was actually really interesting to go look at, and with my being a huge lover of history this was generally really fascinating for me.

But if that wasn't enough for you I also got some footage of my time in Malaga:

So I hope you enjoyed this little sneak peak into my holiday!
I hope you're having a wonderful day and I will see you with a new blog post on Monday!

10 thing's I'd Tell My Younger Self: Beauty Related

Despite still being young and still in my teens being 18 years old I have been through many phases in the last few years; (Many I would like to forget but oh well lets laugh it off.) So for today's post I thought I'd share 10 things I would tell my younger self about beauty and make up.

1. Ease up on the eyeliner girlfriend Like seriously you look like a panda with that much liner on.

2.Dry shaving is a big NONO It may seem like a quick solution to a hairy problem, (pun intended) but it will leave a nasty rash all over your legs and everyone will know that you're the silly billy who dry shaved their legs in the summer.

3.Foundation shades do matter, one colour does not suit all Unfortunately you're just going to have to deal with the fact that you're not the 2 shades too dark warm beige, but instead more porcelain pale.

4.Do not dye your hair dark Stick to the palette of shades natural for you so it will suit your skin tone, but don't worry blonde's have more fun!

5. Give up with on the red lip dream Again continuing on with the point of skin tones, red lippy doesn't suit you at all, not that its a bad thing, just stick to the plums, pinks and peaches.

6.Blend Blend Blend Foundation doesn't end at your chin, blend down into your neck, as no ones likes a foundation line.

7. Extension point to no4: Do not try to cut your own hair You're not some Nicky Clarke, please please please just leave all things hair to your hair dresser. 

8. Avoid cheap make up If its seems too good to be true it probably is. You've mostly likely just purchased an orange foundation or something that guaranteed to make you break out with spots, nice.

9. Be careful with the tweezer, don't over pluck Thin over plucked eyebrows are not a good look, in fact thicker eyebrows can make you look more youthful. Its better off to not pluck enough then way too much, trust me.

10. Learn to love the skin you're in Stop putting yourself down by comparing yourself to others. More so, stop worrying so much about your flaws, imperfections are natural and real, and in most cases such as spots are just temporary and will fade in due time.

So there are 10 thing's I tell my younger self about beauty and make up.
I really hope you enjoyed this post and I will see you Friday with a new blog post!
Until then,

Tuesday Thoughts

Hello everyone!

So I thought for today we'd have a small casual post where I'll just off load all my thoughts at the moment and also more importantly what I am wanting to do with my blog.

Slight Revamp

So if you're a regular to Kira Bassett blog, you may have noticed I have changed my header to my blog slightly. I decided that my previous design wasn't 'me', and over time I've grown to dislike it and wanted a change. I am sticking with the black and white theme for now, but I liked the personal touch of the  hand written looking header.

Blogging Schedule

Well I've said it many times on my blog, that due to college work load I never wanted to commit myself to a schedule otherwise I'd feel under pressure to post all the time. Blogging is not something I want to be stressing about as blogging to me has also been a hobby and something I wanted to enjoy rather than stress over. However with college far behind me I'm going to commit to a small schedule of every other weekday to start off with, and in the future I may step it up depending on how I feel. So from now on expect a new blog post on here every Monday, Wednesday and Friday! 

Being More Active On Social Media

With a come back on my blog, I have decided to be more active on my social media sites such as Twitter and Instagram, which if you don't already follow you can do so by clicking here for Twitter and here for Instagram. I've also gotten addicted to Pinterest again surprise surprise, which if you'd like to follow me on there then you can click here, and I'd be sure to check your boards out too as I need to follow more people on there!

So I do believe I covered everything that was on my mind in terms of my blog. 
I am super excited to start regularly blogging now and with an actual schedule its actually happening ahh!

So I will see you guys with my first regular blog post tomorrow!
Until then!
