Wow!! It’s been a while since I wrote a post! As the title suggests this post is likely to be a long’un so you might want to get comfy and grab yourself a cuppa (tea, coffee or hot chocolate!). I’ll try to reign myself in and not waffle too much but there’s heaps to discuss and update you all on.
My battle with my skin has been an ongoing and tiresome one. Acne for me in my 20’s is far worse than it ever was in my teens. The good old day’s when I’d freak out over a single pimple are long gone, now it feels as if I’m plagued with reoccurring cystic acne. There has been one saviour that’s helped me clear my skin a little and get more control over my breakouts, something I’d resisted for quite a while… a skincare routine.
Can you believe we are in April? Where has this year gone, it literally feels like last week that it was Christmas, but somehow Easter is just around the corner! April is one of my favourite months. The clocks have gone forward so the evenings are getting lighter (hello evening strolls and beer gardens), the sun is making more of an appearance, there’s cute baby animals everywhere and mega bonus, there’s a crap tonne of chocolate! For me April feels like the turning point from Winter to Spring/ Summer and there is nothing I love more than summer.
We all know how hard it can be to get back on track after over indulging during the festive period. January can seem like such a slog with everyone taking a massive shift to focus on their health as the new year rolls in. With that in mind I thought I’d share my top tips on how to get back on track and smash your health goals this year.
Welcome to 2017 and welcome to January! We made it (high five)!
I hope you all had an amazing festive period and are full of good food, drink and merriness. I don’t know about you but I was well and truly done with 2016 and am so ready for 2017. So let’s make this the best year yet!
What is Christmas without a Christmas themed beauty box? One that’s really hit the spot for me is the December My Little Box. Themed this month after the festive season itself, it’s certain not to disappoint. You all know by now that I am a huge fan of the subscription service for the lifestyle box by My Little Box. I don’t think any other box nails it month in month out like MLB… so here’s the low down on the goodies in this month’s box.
I don’t know about you, but I’m just not feeling ‘it’ this year. This is my second year of not feeling ‘it’ and by ‘it’ I mean Christmassy. Whether it’s because I’m getting older and adulting more or just the fact that for me November and December are the busiest months of the year who knows. Normally I love Christmas and can’t wait to get involved in the festivities but it’s been a bit ‘meh’ the last few.
Christmas isn’t Christmas without a good Christmas themed jumper. Whether you like the more reserved, tasteful jumpers or full out Christmas just spewed all over me jumpers, these picks will have you covered from all angles.
Can you believe it’s December! Where has this year gone? I feel like the older I get, the quicker the years go, please tell me I’m not the only one who feels like that. It really feels like winter and Christmas here in the UK now that the weather has turned rather chilly and my first bout of illness sinks in. What’s winter without a good old cold and sore throat to match!
I’ve been toying with writing this post for a while now, my only issue is trying to get all the jumbled thoughts out of my head and into some sort of organised and understandable writing. Apologies if at times it seems confusing but hopefully you’ll stick with me, it comes from the heart and hopefully it may resonate with some of you.
