Thoughts on Being a Blogger

I really have no idea what to call this post. Recently I took an unexpected break from blogging, which I haven’t done in a really long time. I have been writing posts ahead of time so when I am busy with uni, working and life in general I still have content to publish. Meaning I have one less thing to think about as I know I have content ready to go during the few months of my university course.

A Little Bit of Selfcare

Hello everyone, today’s post is something a bit different. I for one am guilty of not giving myself enough me time. Mainly because I’ve been super busy and life can get in the way sometimes. But having said that there is nothing better than having a full on pamper session in the evening (or any time of the day)!   It makes me feel so relaxed and ready for what the next week has to bring! I have been trying to have at least a few hours a week just for me, it’s so important to give time to yourself to recharge and to not have everything constantly whirling around on a never ending to do list! So here are the things I like to do just for me!

Dermaplaning At Home

For a little while I had been wanting to get a Dermaplaning facial. Dermaplaning is a facial treatment that exfoliates and removes peach fuzz, also called velus hair, basically removing the top superficial layer of skin. Resulting in smooth and brighter looking skin. It also allows treatments and products to penetrate deeper into the skin and reach newer cells, as well as an easier makeup application.

The Body Shop Instaglow CC Cream | Review

Having combination skin can often mean no matter what the weather is doing my skin is always looking oily. After years of trying to combat the oiliness to make it more matte, this year I decided I would embrace it. So earlier this year, as the weather started to get warmer, I picked up The Body Shop Instaglow CC Cream in the shade Bright Glow.The Instaglow range come in 3 shades, Bright Glow, Peachy Glow and Warm Glow. I was immediately intrigued by this product as it’s described on TheBodyShop.com to have a multi-tasking formula that illuminates, minimises the appearance of pores, reduces shine,  moisturises for 24 hours and revives skin with a healthy-looking glow. It’s non comedogenic (doesn’t cause blocked pores or blackheads) and suitable for all skin types. Plus it has SPF 20 which adds some sun protection.

Long Weekend in Cornwall

Earlier in the month Tom and I went for a long weekend away. When picking where we’d like to spend our time we decided upon Cornwall. I have never been to Cornwall and so I was excited to explore! A few days before we were due to go there I looked up things to do in Cornwall and I found so many things to do! So Tom and I narrowed it down to a few choices. I took so many photos from the long weekend and it was so hard to narrow it down to a hand full from each day!

We stayed in St Austell and it took us a good few hours to get there! When we did we first went to Charlestown, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Mainly because Tom wanted to surprise me by taking me there before we went to our hotel. Arriving in Charlestown, which is a village that has a Georgian Port, the weather was gorgeous. We grabbed a cold drink before exploring the village.

Mini Makeup Declutter Spring 2017

I love the season changing from winter to spring. Everything is becoming so colourful again and there is new life starting everywhere! Every spring as I swap my winter wear for lighter layers, the season of new beginnings always inspires me to sort everything out. And so having already sorted out my clothes, shoes and jewellery I thought it was only right to give my makeup a bit of a spring clean.  I thought I would share with you the things I’m decluttering from my makeup collection!
