Being healthier

When I first started my blog, I did a post called 6 things you can do to be healthier; admittedly that was months ago and I've introduced quite a few new things to be healthier. The first one is green tea. I have been drinking this nearly every day (as and when I remember to). I am going to say that I hate the taste, but the changes it has made to my skin are worth it. It has kept my spots under control and they've not really got bad at any point since I've started drinking it. It hasn't got rid of them though so I'm still on a hunt to solve that problem. I just drink the ASDA brand green tea which is like 79p for a box, I think.

Travel essentials

A lot of you may have already been on your summer holiday, are there right now or are planning to in the upcoming weeks. I'm actually going to Thailand this summer so I thought that now would be the perfect time to upload a "travel essentials" post. For me, these little extras are very important to take on the plane to make my journey more comfortable. The first one is a jacket/ hoodie because planes can be very cold but then when you arrive at your destination it is very warm. I will be wearing a lot of layers but I am taking this warm hoodie.

Things to do when you are bored

Now that exams are over and the summer holidays are approaching, you may find that you have plenty of time on your hands but not many things to do. Although the idea of sleeping all day... every day seems appealing, it can quickly get boring. So today I thought I would give you some things to do when you are bored. Organise a day out Leaving the house is the first step to socialising and not sit in front of the t.v all summer. Meet up with some friends, or family and do something whether it involves watching a film or going to the park. The activity doesn't even have to take the whole day, as being occupied for a few hours can quickly make the rest of your day more interesting.

My skincare routine

As a person who suffers from acne, let me tell you that looking after your skin is so important. It's not just about what you put on your face but it's also what you put in your body. I'm keeping the introduction short because we have a lot to get through. Face wash: I have 2 different face washes, they both are good so I just pick up whichever one I feel like using each morning.  The first is good for sensitive skin and it's the Simple Kind To Skin Moisturising Facial Wash which is normally £3.59 but has been reduced to £1.75 in both Superdrug and Boots. The second is the Clearasil Daily Clear Hydra-blast Gel Wash which is £3.05 in Superdrug.

How to stay organised?

It’s never a bad thing to be organised. In fact, organisation can help your life run quicker and smoother. For me, I need to be organised to get things done whether it be homework or other little jobs. I have had a long battle with organisation and I think in my most cluttered year, I have finally reached an “agreement” with it which seems to be working for the both of us.

Improving your outlook on life

At least once in our lives, we have all felt pretty rubbish. Feeling like the world is against you all the time! It's totally normal to experience this but it can make the way you view life very negative. I have learnt the hard way that being negative about your life won't make your life… Continue reading Improving your outlook on life

Should you wear makeup?

I don’t feel like anyone should ever feel worried about how they look without makeup, nor should they wear it to impress others. If you like wearing a full face (even if you have flawless skin which I have seen before), then you keep doing what you’re doing. You should only ever wear or do things if it makes you happy. Never do something because it’s ‘in’ right now or because your friends are doing it. Message of this blog: embrace your natural self but don’t feel ashamed to make yourself feel happier even if that is by wearing makeup or certain clothes.
