This week I've been busy journaling, catching up with friends and family and I've been practicing some selfcare. And speaking of journaling and selfcare; this week I'm going to share with you my top 5 favourite storytime posts I've written.
Thursday was my birthday!! Which means I ate cake, got pampered and did a bit of reflecting on what I want for the next year of my life. I guess it's a little like new years resolutions but without the guilt if you break them. Reflecting on what I want for myself in the next months is something I've never really done before, but the time just feels right.
t's the time of year where we're being bombarded with adverts to buy the latest slimming supplement, drink, diet and workout plan; and it sucks. For those of us learning to love our bodies for what they are (beautiful, in case you're not sure), being constantly told that we need to lose weight now that Christmas is over is just horrible. So for the past week and a bit I've been putting together a list of body positive and self-care Instagram's that you need to be following!
One of my new years resolutions for this year is to raise some money for charities that I have had a personal relationship with. And one of those charities is MIND. This is the year of me trying new things and pushing myself out of my comfort zone; and what better way to start than by doing something I've never done before! Cycling!
It's #SelfcareWeek ! And it's got me thinking, what do we actually think classes as selfcare? For me, I typically start thinking about face masks and bubble baths. And well yes that can be classed as selfcare; but as amazing as those things are, there are hundreds of other things you can do. And over the last few days, I've been doing a few of these myself.
We all know that feeling when pay day hits; you know, the feeling you get when that little voice in your head says treat yo self! You deserve it! And then you go and buy a load of stuff that you forget about until you're surrounded by loads of mystery packages. Well here’s a load of presents to buy yourself for under £20!
My journey with my skin has been a long, stressful emotional journey and is by no means over yet. When I was younger I had little to no problems with my skin, being a carefree kid I never did anything to it and lucky for me, that was what worked. Then puberty hit, and again I was lucky enough to only suffer with a spot every now and again, nothing major.
I wish I had appreciated those day more now that I’m a bit older. Especially because as soon as I hit my 20s I developed adult acne, rosacea and my psoriasis began flaring up. So this is my journey tackling my adult acne.
I've learnt a load of lessons not only about myself but about how I should see the world; and this is why I'm writing this today. What made me come to this realisation is the fact that I got my haircut, well, I got bangs. Why would getting bangs make me have this big realisation you ask? Well keep reading and you'll find out!
