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. 

A guide to staying inspired

I am constantly searching in my life for inspiration because even though you should be your own unique person, picking up good habits and following good lifestyles that have worked for other people can work for you to. Inspiration is there to inspire you, just like a trend.

Summer clothing staples… Part 1

We're in June so I can safely say that it's summer. It's my favourite season partly because there's so much more variety with what you can wear. If you live in a country that's not sunny all the time, having a whole wardrobe for summer can leave you sat with a pile of clothes that you cannot wear. Therefore I'm going to be running through some summer staples that you can switch around to wear over summer to make the most of your clothes.

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.

Strive for progress not perfection

I admit it, I am a perfectionist. I wouldn’t say that this is a good thing because it makes 1 job that I have to do 100 times longer and harder. Everyone always assumes that everything you do will be 100% perfect and when you get things wrong, people criticise you. But if I have learnt anything over the past few months, it’s that it’s okay not to be perfect and it’s okay to get things wrong.

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 →

April favourites 

April has gone by extremely quickly like every month, where has the time gone? Today's blog is about a few of my favourite things from this month!

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.

Pushed to the limit

Sometimes there's just piles and piles of work that need doing. Every time you plough through the pile, more seems to keep stacking up. That's how I feel right now. Buried under revision for these exams. It's ironic that a few days ago I wrote about revision and now I'm ripping it apart in this post. There is a such thing as "over-revising", trust me! You feel tired all the time despite getting 8 hours of sleep every night. You feel like you keep zoning out and your eyes keep closing when you look at words. If you're experiencing these dreadful symptoms, you've been pushed to the limit. Sit back, relax and let me guide you out of this mess.

Life without work 

We learn to work. We live to work. Everything we seem to do is for work. My personal view is that not many people want to work of don't enjoy their jobs. So why do we work? Why not just get rid of jobs?
