WE MOVED IN!

Hello guys,

Now going back to around June 2016 me and Jake officially purchased our first property together and on 28th October 2016 we completed on the apartment and moved in the week after.

It was a tough period as not only did we have things to sort out with our new place we also had a lot going on in our personal lives that had complicated the whole process. We felt so emotional when the keys were placed in our hands as we had worked so hard to get to this point and felt a massive accomplishment.

We are slowly but surely getting there with decor however the place does feel a bit bare now our Christmas decorations have been taken down. Here are some pictures from the day we completed and I will be sure to do a tour of the apartment once the decor has been sorted and we FINALLY have pictures on the wall!

An explanation and my new year goals…

Hello loves,

So 3 months ago I composed a post saying how I was back and would stop being slack and just concentrate on uploading my blog posts once a week etc. Well you guessed it, shit hit the fan again and unfortunately the end part of my year wasn’t a great one.

Last night I laid in bed chatting with my fiancé and realised how much I missed writing blog posts and also reading blogs. It gave me a real hobby and was giving me a chance to sit down, even for 20 minutes, and have some real me time and just get lost into reviewing a product or reading a blog post about something I am really interested in. So I’ve decided that I really want to concentrate on my blog this year and get it out to as many people as possible. I’m giving it a real makeover and I hope the current followers I have can support me in getting up and running again.

I’m not a massive one for new years resolution as I am a big believer that you shouldn’t wait for one single day of the year to pledge the ‘new year, new me’ idea, however this year I have given myself a few points to focus on and here they are:

  • Don’t get sucked into the drama/gossip and avoid anyone giving off them negative vibes
  • Don’t rely on anyone to make yourself happy – you’re the only one that can look after yourself properly
  • Get the decor sorted in our new apartment!! (WHY IS ALL THE HOMEWARE I LIKE SOO EXPENSIVE?!)
  • Start putting money away to organise holidays and weekends away

I’d love to hear what goals you’ve given yourself this year!

Thanks for reading and I promise I won’t be this shit again,

Favourite of the Week: Don Broco -Everybody

Hello lovelies,

Hope you’ve all had an awesome week, I wanted to write a quick post on my favourite of this week. I have not stopped listening to this song and had to find away to share it with everyone.

Don Broco are known for their alternative music, their songs can range from funk, alternative rock through to post-hardcore. I honestly believe there is a song for everyone and it’s such feel good music.

The most recent song is ‘Everybody’, which has been released just before their upcoming tour, which I have the excitement of attending in a couple of weeks. There is not much I can say about the song other than you HAVE to listen to it for yourself. Here is the link to the youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W6JZ6IgCKKo

My skincare journey..

Good Evening beauties,

This is a post that I’m a little nervous for, but I am so impressed with my recent results that I just had to share it with you all.

I’ve never ever had good skin, for as long as I remember I have always suffered with redness, blemishes and verging on spot acne. I have been through hundreds of skin care products and the products which always used to work for me were from The Body Shop, they would clear up my skin for a while and it was almost as if they stopped having an effect on me after using them for a couple of weeks and then my skin would go back to a horrible mess. I didn’t used to take pictures of myself without make up as I hated what I saw so you’ll just have to take my word for how bad my skin was but here is what my skin looks like at the moment, it’s definitely not perfect but it is a million times better than it used to be.

After many years of trial and error, I was introduced to the Seaweed collection at The Body Shop. This has changed everything, I started to use the products on a daily basis after finding out my skin type was combination/oily and I’d had a lot of recommendations for this range.

My morning routine starts with the ‘Purifying Cleanser’ and then I use the ‘Gel Day Cream’, this day moisturiser dries so quickly so I don’t find myself having to wait for ages before I can apply my make up. My evening routine starts with the ‘Deep Cleansing Facial Wash’, followed by the ‘Oil-Control Overnight Gel’ and I use the clay mask around twice a week.

If you suffer with similar issues to me when it comes to your skin then I cannot recommend this range enough (as well as making a super special effort to drink lots of water!!!!), it’s not overly expensive and The Body Shop often have discounts floating around. Find the range here: http://www.thebodyshop.co.uk/shop-by-range/seaweed.aspx#/seaweed.aspx
