There’s a definite theme with a few pieces I’ve had my eye on recently and I thought I’d pop them together for a little birthday wishlist as it’s next month but I’ll probably end up buying a couple of bits myself after my birthday as a treat as I don’t expect the amazing Whistles Vacation Sweatshirt as a gift, hello pricey! I’m waiting for a 25% off Grazia code to come my way or something equally lifesaving.
After two solid weeks of tracking my food and hitting my calories, it was time for a cheat. Cheats are so important to keep yourself sane during diets and because we’re all human and need a burger every once in a while! I don’t feel like I need a ‘cheat meal’ to this sort of proportion every week, (this is serious eating!) but every two weeks I’m definitely going to have something super tasty and head out for a meal.
I always love trying out new skincare and although the majority of this range isn’t new to me and to the market but there are a few new products that have been added to the range. The range in question is the Tea Tree & Witch Hazel from Boots, with some of the products having added Active Charcoal too. I’ve been giving these a go over the past week or so as my skin’s been feeling quite oily. My skin can never make it’s mind up in the winter, it’s dry one minute and super oily the next so it needs a bit of balancing out.
If there’s an area of the home where we can really let our imaginations run wild, it’s in the bedroom. Whilst kitchens require a touch of functionalism, and living rooms usually have a television or fireplace as their focal point, our bedrooms are our most privates places, and offer us a huge chance to try some interesting design schemes. Obviously, my favourite style is minimal and Scandi! A quick check on Pinterest reveals how I’m usually drawn towards a modern and contemporary feel that has enough quirkiness and individuality to embrace some more unconventional trends. (I love Liz’s home board! Check out mine here.)
New year, new you, right? If one of your goals for this year is to be more organised them I’ve got a few tips for you. These are based on skincare and beauty because it’s one of the things that I hate to be disorganised because it’s so hard to find the eyeliner or moisturise sample you want in a massive dark makeup bag, isn’t it? Obviously, these tips can transfer to whatever you want to organise! For me, it’s my kitchen cupboards next. If someone could buy me a spice rack, I’d love you forever.
Growing up is hard for many reasons. One day you’re young and carefree, the next you could swear blind you’re getting wrinkles! It happens sooner than most of us would like. But, the good news is that growing older isn’t all doom and gloom. Instead of focusing on the negative implications of lost youth, we’re going to look at the positive factors of the years passing by!
Up for review today in the skincare stakes are these skin-soothing products from Dr. Bronner. I’ve seen this brand everywhere for a few years, most noticeably the Castile Liquid Soap that I know loads of beauty bloggers are a fan of for washing brushes. But, until now, I’d not actually trialed the products for myself.
There are now more than six million people who call themselves personal trainers. Thanks to training organisations and a clear certification path, interest in the fitness industry continues to grow. And why wouldn’t it? It’s a career that’s super rewarding. You get to choose your own clients and your own hours, and there’s no hard-to-navigate dress code: you just put on your gym kit and that’s it. How do you know if personal training is for you? Here are some signs that you’d make a great personal trainer.
‘Diet’ desserts are usually pretty dire, am I right? I mean we all know fruit salad isn’t a dessert and yoghurt and berries just don’t cut it sometimes. Don’t get me wrong, I love my yoghurt and berries and a bit of dark chocolate but sometimes you just need something that is tasty and artificially sweet (in a good way!). That cake or ice-cream sweet is hard to beat if you’re running on pure cravings so I like to find puddings that are in no way clean eating but don’t break the calorie bank. Treats like these are hard to find!
Protein balls. They split taste buds, I think! Some people swear by them and some people won’t touch them but I feel like these are *the* protein balls that will change protein hall haters minds. They’re so yummy, chocolatey and chewy and they pack a serious protein punch with around 9g of protein.
