Facial sprays are one of those little luxuries that I just love to have in my skincare and beauty routine. They just start or finish off my base so perfectly and make my skin feel really comfortable and fresh. I have three favourites that are in my routine at the moment and they all have different uses so I wanted to share them with you babes.
Personally, I don’t think I’ve ever been as thankful for a trend than I have for self care. I’m going to put it out there and say that I do think it is a trend but that I definitely hope that it moulds its way into our lives. Relaxing has, fortunately for all of our sanities, become really popular and much more of a ‘thing’ that we all focus on. Brands are encouraging it, we’re buying more products that are helping us to indulge and we’re not feeling guilty about taking time off anymore.
You guys might have seen some fun times I was having at the beginning of March with McArthurGlen Designer Outlets on a little video shoot and some Spring Summer trend picks. I was working with some awesome other bloggers from the other regions where McArthurGlen have their shopping outlets – I was repping for East Midlands in case you hadn’t guessed.
Sleep is a funny thing. I think we forget how important it is and how much we need it until we have a bad night’s sleep. Then, all hell breaks loose and the day ahead can be a struggle. I’m definitely in this camp – I forget how much I need sleep until I have a poor night. I don’t sleep well when I’m stressed or have things on my mind so I always find that focusing on my evening routine can really help me unwind and relax. So, if you’re like me and struggle with the ol’ switch off then these three tips might help!
Spring is nearly rolling around and our fluffy blankets are being put back into storage! As soon as it gets above 10 degrees I feel like I need a little home update to bring it into the new season. Some people might think it’s silly to think about styling your home for the new season but I think it definitely makes a difference. You don’t want thick blankets and overpowering cinnamon candles when we’re heading into April, do ya? Definitely not!
I’m sure we were all hoping for florals, cute striped trousers and light jackets by the middle of March but the Beast from The East is havin’ none of that – am I right? So, we need a few cute ideas to jazz up outfits now that we’re having to still rock knitwear and thermal leggings under your jeans.
If you know me well, you’ll know that I love skincare. I always have! It’s just something that I look forward to everyday. Taking my makeup off at the end of the day is a treat for me so I love to have luxurious products to do this with. I also once read that Beyonce said that she goes to bed ‘with greasy skin’ and that’s why she always looks so glowing. For some reason this has stuck with me and I love a really intense night cream or oil to apply before I go to sleep.
I like to think I’m somewhere in the middle when it comes to being high maintenance about my appearance. I definitely care, I wear makeup pretty much everyday and I spent money on getting my brows, hair and nails done. But, I feel like I’m fairly relaxed because I don’t spend hours and hours on it and I don’t want to look like I’ve just walked off Love Island. Basically, I unashamedly love beauty and I find it really fun to experiment with makeup and beauty trends. Here are my four rules for getting perfect lashes and brows because sometimes that’s all that makes you happy sometimes and that’s OK.
After a crazy week which involved no blogging at all we headed to Lincoln for what we hoped would be a sunny, spring-like cute day out. Unfortunately, it ended up being -2 and snowing but it was still lovely to visit somewhere new and having some time out. I love checking out new cities in the UK that we haven’t been to before and it was even nicer to just travel somewhere just for the day. Lincoln is only 55 minutes from Nottingham on the train and the train station is literally around the corner from the town centre.
