Growing up I always had so many issues with my skin.
I was spot prone and had an oily t-zone that I had no idea to control. As a teen I used to buy cheap makeup that wasn’t great for my skin either, which really didn’t help my situation! Like most teens and people in their early twenties who go through this and worse, it’s gives you a real knock to your confidence. I remember lathering makeup on to try and cover my face more, it was awful.
Is it just me or does it feel like we’re constantly being told what we should be doing in the morning?
Drinking water, yoga, working out, writing in our blogging journals, eating a proper breakfast… all before heading to work at 8:00 am (or even earlier for some!). The internet wants me to believe successful women basically conquer more in their 3 hour pre-work morning than I do in my entire day. I think I need a more realistic plan to overhaul my morning routine!
I’m not going to write about this and try and sugar coat the subject. Moving into your first home together isn’t easy. Whether you’re buying or renting you will come up against obstacles, ones you never thought you would when you lived apart. You find out things about your other half that may surprise you. So grab a coffee because here it is, the good, the bad, and the ugly.
Since the start of the new year I’ve been thinking about what I’d like to accomplish over the next year. I’m not one to set resolutions because quite frankly I never manage to do them. I get to the end of the year and feel like a failure! So instead, I’ve written myself a bucket list of things I’d like to do this year.
It’s not a list of things I hate about myself, a list of things I want to change about myself, or a list of unrealistic expectations. It’s a list of goals and dreams I have for 2018; a journey of checking-things-off I suppose.
2017 marked a new adventure for me, owning my own home.
I’m not going to lie it’s a scary and daunting thought, paying a mortgage, running a home, making sure you have food in. Surviving! After all, I’m still young, still learning and still trying to do this “adulting” thing. Saying that, having my own home now means I can truly go to town on decorating. I’ll do my best to keep you all in the loop with any cool and cute bits I buy, I’m hoping to make it really homely and already picked up some awesome bits last year which you can see here.
