What Do If Your 2018 Got Off To A Bad Start

So, hands up who else entered 2018 with the virus/flu/cold of death? Because the first week of the new year has been a complete blur and it's left me feeling like a big fat failure already. And I can't deny I'm a big fan of the new year as it's one of the easiest ways to draw a line in the sand and attempt to leave everything that happened in past 12 months in that year and start fresh. However, when you've got all the plans and resolutions and you feel excited to get on with them and they seem to go down the drain straight away it can be pretty disheartening. So in case, you're also trying to battle through January with a nose full of snot and chest full of phlegm or handling anything else that might have put a dent in your productive spirits then keep reading.

January Beauty Edit; The Flawless One

Not starting the year with a fresh beauty bag to root through on a nearly daily basis seems wrong. So as per usual I've brought together some of my favourite products, new and old to create a makeup look that I'm really digging at the moment. Safe to say that my skin isn't exactly looking it's finest after consuming a glorious amount of chocolate and falling asleep on the sofa with a full face of makeup on a few too many times. So not only do I need things to be a little more full coverage but I need that hit of hydration too as obviously I've not been drinking enough water and consuming way too much coffee. I'm on a mission to document how I switch around my makeup in 2018 and here is the first post to kick it off!

Thank you 2017

I was desperate to think of a way to write this blog post without talking about how quickly the year has gone. But, seriously, how quickly has 2017 gone by? It seems like a complete blur and now I'm wracking my brain trying to remember everything that happened in the past 12 months. I used to do a big roundup of blog posts but I thought I'd things a little differently this year...

Things I Want To Do More In 2018 & Things I Want To Do Less In 2018

Writing about the things that I want to achieve in the next 12 months seems like a given right now but something that isn't spoken about all that much is everything that we want to stop doing. I'm always wanting to push myself further and achieve more and more but there are always things that I'm pretty desperate to stop doing as well. And I thought it might be an interesting twist on the cliche [but fascinating] posts that are always floating around at this time of year.

5 Things I Regret Buying

Regret doesn't seem like the best word to use in this instance but lets be real using the title 'the things I shouldn't have bought in hindsight' isn't quite as snappy. Shopping has changed so much for me over the years, I rarely shop at the moment and it's a really good thing. I used to get the shopping itch so bad where I didn't feel happy until I'd bought something and that was such an unhealthy relationship to have with material objects. And of course, I do still love things and I will never think that is a negative thing and I'm on an ever-changing an evolving journey with how I shop but here are the things I've come to regret purchasing over the past year or so.

4 Beauty Treats That Are Always On My Desk & Things I Do Everyday To Feel Ready To Take On The Day

2017 has been the year of wearing a lot less makeup for me, there have been weeks lately where I've not reached for it at all and it's really refreshing. I used to rely on makeup so much to make me feel complete and to be able to leave the house and still feel like myself and even confident is a huge thing for me. Even on the days where I don't wear makeup, there are still plenty of beauty products I find myself reaching for and here are the 4 that have got permanent residency on my desk and the things that I do every day without fail to feel ready for work.

Things To-Do To Feel Fresh For 2018

The strange in-between run-up to the new year is always one of my most loved times. Granted, I never know what day it is and getting back into work always feels particularly difficult but one thing I always make sure I've got time for is completing a few set tasks that help me go into the new year feeling fresh and ready. I'm not a believer or a subscriber to the whole 'new year, new me' kind of thing but something I really do believe in is making sure you're feeling as ready as you can and here a few of my favourite things to do...

A High-End & Budget Duo That Work Wonders

Dedicating a post to just a couple of products isn't something I do very often at all but when you find a duo as good as this then it has to be shared. Something I struggle with is uneven patches of texture within my skin left over from old blemishes that have scarred and not only left a lovely red mark but also either a lump or a dint. One of my main aims with my routine as of right now is to keep my complexion looking as bright and flawless as possible and these two products have been doing that and then some.

How To Enjoy Time Off Without Feeling Guilty or Lazy & Some Of My Favourite Ways To Feel Festive

The vast majority of us right now will have broken up for our Christmas break, whether it's for a couple of weeks or a few days it's incredible to be able to take time off. And of course, I can't write this post without giving a nod and a big thank you to all the people who still work over the festive period, those who are in the emergency services, catering, retail or any other job where you're still putting the time in, thank you. And I'm only taking a few days off but something that I'm determined to do this year is to take those few days without feeling incredibly guilty and worrying that I should be ticking things off my to-do list. When really all I want to do is lay on the sofa, read and eat my body weight in strawberry creams. So if that niggling guilt is something you feel then here are a few ways to try and get around it and some of my favourite things to do over the festive season that are a fail-safe way to feel joyous.

7 Beauty Products That Became Staples In 2017

2017 hasn't been a great year for a lot of things but one thing that has been excellent for is the number of awesome beauty discoveries I've made. There hasn't been many products that have disappointed me, which is weirdly one of my favourite things to write about. As after all, gushing about products is all well and good but it's even more useful when you can share the things that you've not liked too. Anyway, I'll save the duds for another post and here are all the products that have become long-term staples in my routine in 2017.
