Where Have I Been?

What a few months it has been!

Firstly, I would like to apologize for being completely non-existent on my blog for the past few months. Those of you who know me or continued to talk to me on social media will know it has been a hectic 5 months, so let’s have a run down:

Photography #2

Well, I think it is safe to say that I have not written a blog post in a very long time. I have just finished my 3-year degree in Drama and it has been HECTIC to say the least. So, a very big sorry to everyone but a massive thank you to those who still kept up with me on social media and I am now back!

I thought that as my most read blog post is Photography #1, that I would do another one with some more photos I have taken since then. Photography is a hobby of mine and if I could do it professionally then I would. I hope you enjoy this post and find some inspiration from these photos!

Morning Skincare Routine

I have spent a fair few years figuring out what products work for my skin and which ones to steer clear of. In the recent months, I have also been trying to convert most, if not all, of my products to natural skincare. As I have gotten older, I have definitely been taking more care of my skin in general, not just the face. Got to prevent the aging process eh?

This post is all about the skincare products I use in the morning, and one about my evening skincare will follow shortly.

The Skinny Kitchen - A Trip With Jessica!

As you can tell from my post yesterday, I have really been into healthy eating recently. A few weeks back I went to The Skinny Kitchen with my housemate and fellow blogger Jessica. Find her blog over at The Birds and Butterflies.

As I tend to write quite lengthy posts, I thought I would leave this one quite short and just include a few photos that I took whilst we were there, so enjoy!

SourcedBox - Healthy Snacking Service!

Healthy snacking? Yes please! If you are anything like me, you will love a healthy snack over an unhealthy one. I find it utterly incredible that some healthy brands use natural ingredients to make their products and some turn out to taste just like an unhealthy version would! It certainly helps me to have some guilt-free snacking sessions when they are needed.

Healthy foods can be hard to find if you don’t particularly know where to look. Where I live, there is one wholefoods store and that’s it. I have found a lovely selection of brands in there that I like but it can be difficult to find healthy brands in other stores such as supermarkets as some brands advertise themselves as natural but are not 100% natural – which is sucky! However, I came across the subscription box service called SourcedBox quite a while ago.

February Favorites

In the month of February, I was so focused on my practical assignments at university that I barely had any time to try anything new and I wasn’t using anything enough for it to become a favorite of mine. Therefore, this post will be a lot shorter than my January Favorites but, regardless, I still enjoyed these things just as much! Let’s get on into my February Favorites…

Beauty Misses #1

In my first few years at university, I would buy almost every product I laid my eyes on. Seeing several bloggers and vloggers with huge make-up collections made me envious, so I tried to make my own collection bigger and bigger. As a result of this, I purchased many items that I actually didn’t like and have been forever stashed away just to make my collection look larger – even though I was not using these items. It is only recently that I have been looking into minimalism that I wanted to downsize everything I own. I started with my make-up collection, and these products are just a few of the items that barely ever got used because they were either horrendous, or just did not work for me.

January Favorites

January always seems to be the month in which I love a large amount of products compared to the rest of the year (new year, new me, new products?) so it was really hard for me to pick my ultimate favorites for the month of January. This is my first post in this series but I have wanted to do a monthly favorites series for a long time, so I hope you enjoy reading this post as much as I loved writing it!

Empties #1

This is my first blog post on what products I have used up – otherwise called “Empties” which seems to be the common name amongst bloggers and vloggers.

I am one of those people who definitely likes to use up one product before I move onto the next one, so there is very little in my empties because it takes me a while to use up a product as I only use a small amount. I am also a very clean, minimalist person, so keeping this stuff in a bag to the side of my bedroom has been an absolute nightmare and several times I have wanted to throw it away.

Anyway, I always ramble on so let’s just get straight into what I have finished in the past month or two…

The Bedtime Tag

So recently I was nominated to do The Bedtime Tag by the lovely Amelia over at Mum’s Beauty Cave. You can find her bedtime tag here so go and check it out!

As a university student, my days are fairly hectic and I look forward to sleeping every minute of the day until it finally gets to bedtime.

7 Resolutions for 2017

Every year I make resolutions when the new year comes around – as I am sure a lot of you reading this do. After a month they are basically out of the window and it isn’t until the end of the year that I start to get annoyed with myself because of the possible changes I could have made to my life in that time frame.

Now I am in my twenties (sigh) I want to start sticking to all of the goals I set myself. If there was a reason I set them in the first place, then surely I am not exactly where I want to be if I don’t achieve them. That’s my opinion, anyway.

So, as you can probably guess by the title, this blog post will be a list of my resolutions/goals for the year of 2017.
