Affordable Glow: Goddess Of Faith Highlighter

Sunday, 27 August 2017

I've never really been someone who enjoys summer. I hate that the whole of Britain turns into a giant roasting tin. IT'S TOO HOT. Summer means I'm sweaty, my skin is an oily mess, hayfever kills me slowly, and not even a fan can save me from the night's heat and help me sleep. Give me cold Autumn weather any day. Thankfully, living in Wales means we don't really see crazy hot summer weather often but when we do it's unbearable.

Let's Talk: Techniques For Improving Sleep

Wednesday, 23 August 2017

I can't tell you how many times I've googled "how to get a good nights sleep". For the past few years sleep has been a huge issue for me. I wake up at least 3 times a night and can often be lying awake for more than an hour. I feel like I've tried everything for helping my sleeping pattern. Herbal sleep aids, pillow sprays, natural relaxation spotify playlists. AND NONE OF IT WORKS FOR ME. However, since seeing a therapist for anxiety and depression, I've learnt a lot about sleep and how to improve the quality of it. It's something that I really focus on in CBT because it has a huge impact on my mood and can often make my anxiety worse. Here are some things that help a better nights sleep (well for me anyway, but it could help you as well).

Healthy Chinese Fakeaway Chow Mein Recipe

Sunday, 20 August 2017

Before you ask, no it's not a pan of worms and cat poo although it kind of does look like it. Today I want to share a recipe my Mum and I tried the other day that I'm absolutely obsessed with. It's this chow mein recipe that's healthy but actually tastes like normal chow mein. It's a slimming world recipe so it's syn free and low fat. My sister made it and brought some over for us to try and I couldn't believe how similar it was to the chow mein you'd buy at the chinese takeaway. So we made some a few days ago and I felt like everyone needs to know about this recipe.

An Eventful Week Up North

Sunday, 13 August 2017

Ahhh it feels good to be back. Although it's only been 4 days, I feel as though I've been gone for ages. If you don't follow my social medias you won't know that this week I visited family in Lancashire. Because they live away, we rarely see them so visiting them was something we'd been looking forward to for months. They're the most warm-hearted lovely people so whenever we spend time together we just have the best time. Although I was really excited, the prospect of leaving Lola for a week was horrible. I never knew how much you could become attached to a pet. Seeing family was so nice and we had a well needed catch-up but the trip didn't exactly go to plan. Well, not at all actually. It went a bit tits up. 

Primark Homeware Haul

Friday, 11 August 2017

I'M FINALLY BLOGGING ABOUT SOMETHING INTERIOR RELATED!! It's been a long time coming. At the moment I'm re-decorating my bedroom so I've been non-stop pinning photos of different colour schemes, furniture and homeware accessories. All the things I love. Anyone who knows me (and follows my 7 different interior design pinterest boards) will know I'm OBSESSED with anything home design related. I can't get enough of it. I'm always planning what my future home will look like and have so many ideas I can't wait to put into practise.

Ultimate Summer Roadtrip Playist

Sunday, 6 August 2017

There's nothing nicer than chilling out in the garden trying desperately to catch a tan, listening to music and drinking ice cold drinks. Living in Wales means these occasions are a once in a blue moon experience that tend to be quite rare in the Summer months. I've always had a Summer playlist with songs that I imagine myself listening to on holiday or when in the car when the sun is shining. Tomorrow I'm visiting Lancashire for the week to see family and although I'm SO excited, the 4 and a half hour drive doesn't sound appealing to me. I have my headphones in when I'm in the car every time without fail, even more so when I'm on long journeys so I've put together a playlist of what people call "feel good tunes" that I plan to listen to. 4 and a half hours. God help me.

Snippets Of My Month: July 2017

Tuesday, 1 August 2017

I say it every time but I can't quite believe that another month has passed me by. I think that doing these monthly reflective posts is making me notice how quickly the months are whizzing by. It's scary that we're already more than half way through 2017. It feels like it's only just begun. It's august now though, which means one thing. IT'S NEARLY AUTUMN. I don't care much for summer and usually start picturing autumn and winter right about now, as bizarre as that sounds.
