Why I Want To Stop Buying Fast Fashion

Image
It's almost become an essential as a blogger to constantly have new stuff in, people get bored of hearing about the same old and there always has to be something new on the scene. Although we're creatures of habit there's something exciting about getting something new. I remember about a year ago, I was ordering stuff constantly and never really getting my wear out of them. There was a lot of stuff I just never worn and I think I bought them because why not, it was in fashion and was something everyone else had and I kinda bought into it through that. It became a very expensive and wasteful time and with the number of clothes that are now wasted it got me thinking.

Fast fashion is on the rise and more and more people are getting involved, companies are banking on this and although it's great to have the new thing in it's not great to consistently be purchasing clothes that we don't wear enough. I realised when I started getting more into getting photos done and …

So You Got Hit With The Let's Be Friends Text

Image
Yeah, that notification was right, that message is correct and no matter how much you wish it wasn't it is babe. It's a shit thing to go through, getting feelings for someone for them to turn round and just want to be friends, I think when it comes to sitting yourself down and understanding why it hurts, I think the worst thing is neither of you has control over it. I'll admit that I've taken my heartache out on the person before, but the more times it happens and the more times I sit myself down and think about it, it really is just luck in some sense. 

At the time of me writing this, am in a conflict of feelings with someone. I wish I had actually taken the advice am about to give you. Especially the last one, to anyone reading this who told me they just wanted to be mates the ice cream I had to help was really nice thanks x 

You can never change anyones feelings, nor should you try and change your own for someone else. It's hard to accept that your feelings aren&#…

What Have You Done This Year? Let's Have A Chat

Image
It feels a bit weird to sit down mid February and start talking about my goals for the year, realistically I've been planning all this since December. But instead of the typical new year new resolution posts, I wanted to actually put my resolutions to the test and see if I've actually been ticking them off two months into the year. I decided to create a load of different goals, and it's been quite eye opening to see how many I've been even close to doing.

My wellbeing was at the top of the list, I really wanted to make sure I took care of myself and you know what. I'm actually doing pretty good at it, I've had a lot of slip ups and at the moment I'm not in the best place, but I've been taking out more time for me and allowing myself to relax more when I can. This resolution will be put to the test later on, when deadlines get closer and it all becomes more intense. But so far am doing good, and am getting better at managing my wellbeing.

What's On Ya Face

Image
From makeup to skincare, to glitter, to god knows what ends up on there a fair bit of stuff finds it's way onto your face. I've always tried to stick to a routine, with makeup and skincare. This can change depending on my mood and how my skins doing. I'm a person of change and I love being able to switch up and change my face depending on how it's doing. I have added some new bits and I thought it would be nice to sit down, grab a drink (alcoholic now that my exams are over) and talk through what's been new on my face recently.

There's a mix of skincare and makeup in this one. I mentioned in a previous post how I wanted to switch it up a bit. I was tired of having the same makeup on day in day out and it felt good to finally have a bit of change. I picked up the Makeup Revolution brow pomade in Ash brown and it's really done wonders for my brows, admittedly they aren't at their best just yet but I'm practising as I go along and getting used to drawin…

What's Wrong With Putting on Weight

Image
If you’re a blogger, influencer, or just anyone that uses social media you would have come across weight loss products, even on the high street they’re advertised as a quick-fire way towards a “better” you. I can’t even begin to count the number of emails I have had asking me to promote and review them. And my answer to that is straight up NO. But for a few more reasons than you’d probably think. The weight loss industry banks on us not feeling confident and happy in our body, and before anyone says no am not against being healthy and looking and feeling great. But I am against people having to drink teas that taste horrible and using fad diets to get to some idealised reality built around everyone else. Dieting is a touchy subject but we’re gonna go all over today and just get into detail.

Each diet no matter what it is focused on this whole finding a “better” you and you know what. When you sit back and think about that, it’s bad to try and sell someone a new version of themselves. I…

Period Pains Got You Down?

Image
It's the time of the month nobody really enjoys, it's cramp city and the cravings and mood swings really get to you. I never used to have bad periods, I normally had 3 days of bliss and life was all happy go lucky. But 2018 called and decided it would be the year I get horrible cramps, backache and some of the worst mood swings I've ever experienced. I never really used anything before, but after all this hit I felt a need to reach for anything that could help. Some of these things I mention are groundbreaking, so sit tight grab a drink and let's go through what's helped reduce my period pains. 

First off, a bit of a weird one but finding the period products that make you feel comfy is a big one. I remember when I was younger, I really struggled to understand what the best period products were. I've always been scared of using tampons, the idea of something being stuck in me and just staying there for hours really puts me into a panic. I always thought of it as …

How To Turn A Flat Into A Home

Image
I touched on this a while back when I first moved back into my flat on how to make space feel like your own. Especially if you can't do any lasting decorating or strip out a wall, instead you can use little things to help jazz it up. Plus it's easier to take down a poster than to re-paint a wall. I found myself not really feeling like the room was really mine for some time, yeah it's got some gig tickets and cute photos of friends on the wall but I just didn't feel like I'd "settled in" I think this has more to do with other things in life and just generally being quite lonely, but I've found a bit of comfort in being able to add things and give it a more personal touch recently. 

I never thought I would sit here and say that I feel comfortable in my flat, it's a weird one for me to discuss but I've just never really felt like I live there. Essentially am renting out space and it's not a real home by no means, but it's somewhere I spend…
