Beauty Products- Getting rid of bad skin

Good Evening Lovelies,

If you follow me on Instagram you will know that I have started my own beauty business venture and I couldn’t be more excited! I always knew I wanted my own business however, I didn’t want to rush into it until it felt right. I kept putting the idea out into the universe and before you know it I was approached by a really good friend of mine and this is how my beauty business venture begun.

I have always been a lover of beauty products hence why I became a beauty blogger. I think I’ve previously mentioned that I am literally sucked into buying all products. I’ve got to try everything and anything! so when I tried these products, not only did I absolutely love them but I knew they would be the perfect products for me to begin my own beauty business venture with.

Every week I will be writing a post introducing you to a new product. I’ve decided to do my first post surrounding bad skin because at one stage or another we all suffer from bad skin. There will be those lucky souls that have never experienced break outs, or suffered from acne however, there are people that suffer badly at all ages. There are a lot of  products on the market and sometimes you have no idea which ones to choose. Well, look no further because once you have tried these products there is no turning back.

The facial peel and neutraliser is a two step treatment which I will outline below;

AHA Facial Peel (Step 1):
Lactic acid – this aggressive alphahydroxy acid stimulates cell renewal and breaks apart dead cell build up. Chemical exfoliation works to diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles, improve texture and reduce the appearance of pores.

AHA Facial Peel Neutraliser (Step 2):  Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Extract – rich in the antioxidant compound avenanthramides, this extract exhibits exceptional calming properties that soothe the skin and reduce topical sensitivity.

My clients have been amazed by the results and I am sure you will be too. Head over to my Instagram to see my clients results and feel free to message me if you would like anymore information. I will show some of my clients photos below.

November beauty favourites

IMG_5649OMG, can you believe it’s nearly Christmas! who’s excited? Christmas is cancelled for me because I am going on holiday next week and I cannot wait. Since November is now behind us I thought I would do a cheeky post of my favourite beauty buys from last month. I am one of those girls that’s easily swayed by an advert. If the advert says that by using this cream I am going to be fresh-faced, have soft skin and no spots then I am the first person to run out and buy it. I even get pulled into those unrealistic results such as ‘if you buy this shampoo then your hair will grow overnight, you will have endless curls, a new wardrobe full of clothes, find £1,000 on the floor and we will even chuck in a boyfriend’. Yeah I’m that naive, I believe everything.

Anyway here are a few of my favourite things from November;

  • Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation What an absolute dream. I was in Selfridges on the hunt for a new foundation and it was as if the make-up gods came down and pointed to the Charlotte Tilbury counter. If you have oily skin like me then this is perfect as it is a Matt finish. It is also full coverage and stays on all day. I’ve been using this as my ‘going-out out’ foundation as opposed to everyday use. I have olive skin and it was quite easy to find the right match.

  • Honey & Co Face mask Since it is now Antarctica outside my skin is in the horrors. My skin is crying out for some sun and in need of some tender loving care. I try to do a face mask every two weeks. I find that it soothes my skin and gives me a more vibrant look. I love the fact that the products are all natural and it doesn’t  leave your face looking red and puffy as most face masks do.

  • ‘Show’ Dry Shampoo– If you are as lazy as I am then you will agree that washing your hair is an absolute chore, especially when you have a lion mane for hair. Dry shampoo is a literal life saver and makes your hair feel and smell as if you have just washed it.

Best dry shampoo ever

  • Anastasia Beverly hills eyebrow wiz in Granite What were my poor eyebrows doing before this? Not only does this product help to define the shape but it also stays on all day. Go out and get it now.

  • Sanctuary Spa wet skin moisture Miracle Body Lotion I still haven’t found my go to body lotion as I feel that after a few months my body gets used to the cream and it ends up making my skin dry.  I have only been using this for a few weeks but I am loving it at the moment. The cream dries as soon as your rub it in and the smell is to die for.

  • Too faced ‘you light up my life’ highlighter- We all want that show-stopping, glistening glow and this highlighter will honestly light up your life. I can’t leave the house without it. All you need is a fan brush and a little bit of product and you are on your way to having highlighter brighter than your ex boyfriend’s future.

10 Ways to be healthier

This post is being written selfishly for me as I am sick with the flu again! My immune system is dire and as soon as someone sneezes I know it’s game over. As we are slowly making our way from autumn into winter. I thought it would be a good idea to write a blog post that will hopefully give us all a little push to protect our bodies, and who doesn’t want to be a little bit healthier? Anyway enough of me rambling on, let’s begin.

  1.  Get enough sleep! Studies state that if you are aged between 18-64 years the recommended sleep should be between 7-9 hours. Well you don’t have to tell me twice, I like to think of myself as the modern sleeping beauty. By going to bed early and having a full night’s rest this will allow your body to recuperate and you will be ready for the day ahead.
  2. Breakfast I must admit I do not eat breakfast…yet. It is a known fact that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So head over to local food shop and stack up on those cereals.

3. Herbal tea I don’t really know how I feel about herbal tea, I have a love hate relationship with it. But the benefits of drinking herbal tea are meant to be amazing. By drinking herbal tea you will supposedly shed of the pounds, fight off the flu and have a good night sleep.

4. Exercise It is recommended that you exercise everyday for 20-30 mins. I am going to be realistic with this one because there is nothing I love more than getting into bed and watching Netflix. Let’s say 4 times a week.

5. Vitamins I have tried to take vitamins in the past but I always forget to take them or the placebo effect would get me and I would start feeling weird (maybe I am a bit of a drama queen). I’ve decided to try again with some vitamins called Repair and Revitalise. They are meant to help you feel good everyday with beautiful hair, skin and nails. I am going to give them a go and see how they work. They will be linked on my Instagram if you want to try them.

6. Fruit and Veg 5 a day people, you know the drill.

7. Meditate  I am really really excited about this one. I have never meditated before but I plan to meditate for 10 minutes every night before I go to bed. The idea is to unwind, shut down your brain and relax. I have attached a meditation for beginners guide for those that want to join in.

IMG_5006

8. Drink water the recommended amount of water to drink per day is 2L. If you buy a bottle at the beginning of every day you will be able to finish it in no time.

9. Balanced diet I AM NOT a nutritionist because I love Mac Donald’s, so I can’t really advise on this. But the plan is not to eat junk food and eat carbs and fat in moderation. I plan to eat lots of protein, meat and brown rice.

10. Go on holiday  Yes Yes Yes No matter what job you do or how hard you work, everyone deserves a holiday. Holidays give you some relaxation time. So by the time you come back you are more motivated than ever.

I will be doing this for the next month and reporting back. Why not join in with me and see if it makes a difference in your life.

what’s the lesson you live by?

 

IMG_2252

This is a pretty good question because as a 25-year-old woman I would say that I most definitely haven’t got my life together just yet. I am known for drinking way too many cocktails and moaning that I should have won the lottery by now. However, last year February I had to learn the hardest lesson of all; family is everything. Don’t get me wrong, I always knew family was important but as a teen/young woman you take them for granted.

My 18-year-old brother died suddenly in February 2016 and I must admit I still don’t believe it to this day. I never thought in a million years that I would need to worry about my little brother dying. It’s one of those things you hear about but you think it will never happen to you. You hit a state of shock, a brick wall. For the first six months, I walked around like a zombie. I became so angry that the world just carried on living whilst my entire world had collapsed. Dealing with grief and trying to offer support to my mum and sister is incredibly difficult. This tragedy will haunt us forever and every day I am smacked in the face with different emotions. The loss of someone is never easy and the pain DOES NOT go away.

The only lesson I can learn from this is to treasure everyone and everything because you never know when you will have your last moment with them. I know life gets in the way and mundane things such as work, arguments etc stops us from remembering what is important, but we must snap out of it. Doing well for yourself, getting that promotion, buying your dream car and living the life of luxury will mean nothing if you don’t have your loved ones around you. Without making this post too depressing, I want to use my story as a reminder for us all to be so grateful for all the good things in life. Say I love you every day, spend more time with your family and always do the things that make you happy.

happiness-1

 

I had to learn the hard way that is life is so tough, we will all have good and bad days. There will be times when you want to give up but don’t! life is so precious so embrace it and have as much fun as possible. This experience has shaped me into a completely different person. I am grateful, fearless and want to make my brother very proud. There will be a time when everyone will go through the pain of losing someone they love but just know you are not alone. Life is short and we only get one chance at it so if you are currently unhappy with your current situation, shake up your entire life. Go after your dream job, get a horse, make a family or move to Hawaii. Do all the things that scare you as this will make life worthwhile. One last thing before I go, always be grateful and never take anyone or anything for granted.

 

My do’s and don’t for the week;

  • DO go on a major shopping spree on payday and live off beans on toast for the rest of the month.
  • DON’T stalk your ex on Instagram, it will ruin your entire week!
  • DO buy glamour magazine every month just to read Dawn O’ porters column.
  • DON’T compare yourselves to others, you are a badass.
  • DO snooze your alarm, stay in bed longer and blame TFL for the reason why you’re late.
  • DON’T eat that whole packet of biscuits, you will regret it when you finally make it to the gym.

Dream job… how do I get you?

dreamjob

I promised a blog post on how to get your dream job. But before I begin I must warn you that this is not going to be easy. If it was, I would be sitting on a yacht right now in my bikini, drinking champagne for a living. Getting your dream job is going to take a lot of blood, sweat and tears. But with enough faith and dedication we can get there together. Please bare in mind that I have not got my dream job yet so I will be on this journey with you.

First things first, do you know exactly what you want to do? if your answer is yes then perfect, carry on reading. If not then please read my previous post. You can only attain your dream job once you know exactly what it is you want to do. The points that I will be outlining below will hopefully apply to any career path that you wish to take, yes even if you want to be an astronaut.

(Side note- you might not know this about me yet but I adore books on self help and positivity, its kind of my thing. So all of the points below will coincide with some of the ideas in my fav books. I will reference all books at the end).

  • Decision time– I know this may seem a bit obvious however, you need to decide that this is 100 percent what you truly want. If you are not committed to giving up everything in pursuit of your dream then it will not work!
  • Research– What do you need to do or know in order to get this job? As they say knowledge is power so do as much research as possible. If you need to intern then so be it.
  • Positive thinking– Always think positive. I recently read that 80% of our thoughts are negative, how mad is that. At times we work against ourselves, we can be our worst enemy. So really focus on keeping them thoughts positive.
  • Determination/ persistence-  Please do not give up. It is going to be tough, you won’t have a lot of money to begin with and people will doubt you. But be persist show them that you were made for this job.
  • Act the part– Act as if you already have the job and before you know it, it will be yours. It is all about the law of attraction think your dream job into existence.
  • Have faith- You’ve got this, you and only you can make this happen.
  • Gratitude- Don’t forget how far you have come and always be grateful.

I am hoping that if we use the principles above and keep pushing we will all make it to our end goal.

Curls on Curls on Curls

2a60ef594a50d888cad9b327d1cb52d7I used to hate my natural hair through my teens. Curly, frizzy hair yukk. The girl from Princess diaries and me could have been twins at one point. So I did the worst thing you can ever do and I straightened the life out of it. My poor poor hair, it was only until two years ago that I got my act together and embraced my curly locks and now I can’t live without them.

IMG_8681

It took me ages to find the right products for my hair, I literally tried everything. It was only after a year did my curls take their wonderful curly form. The products I now use and can’t live without are Shea Moisture. Shea Moisture has changed the game for me however, do not put a lot of product in your hair as I find it gives my hair that ‘wet look’.

Without these bad boys I don’t know where my life would be.

The best tips I can give you are;

  1. Try your best not to put any heat on your hair, if you do make sure you use heat defence spray.
  2. Use lots of leave in conditioners and oils
  3. Treat your hair every week to a nice hour-long leave in conditioner
  4. Love your hair because you will be crying if it falls out!

I have also included my fav hair masks below. Leave these in your hair for a good hour on a Saturday, whilst prancing round your room singing some Justin Bieber. IMG_0091

I hate work get me out of hereeeeeee!

AAEAAQAAAAAAAAT4AAAAJDFlNzE4NDlmLTE5ZTctNGEzMS1iNGU0LWZkNjI4NTc4YmQ2Nw

So you’ve changed your mind-set at work. You’ve started going in earlier and making an effort. You spoke to your boss about your concerns and nothing has changed. You even tried to make friends with your colleagues and you have come to the conclusion that they are all dryyy.

The decision has been made and you need to get out of there, time to get you that dream jobbbbb! job

  • Let’s start with the basics, what do you want to do? take as long as you need to decide because once you do, you are going to have to do everything it takes to get this job. Don’t worry if you haven’t got the experience, we will get to that in later blog posts.
  • If you are still struggling with what you would like to do, do not threat. Think about what you enjoy doing or what you think you are good at. Ask your family and friends what they could they see you doing? meet new people, do some research. Google every job you are interested in, yes even if you want to be an astronaut google the hell out of it.
    Cash
  • If money is an issue then work as much as possible at your current job and in your spare time focus all your energy on your future, only you can make this happen.

IMG_1798

  • You already know that your current job isn’t for you so you are half way there. Rack your brains until you finally decide and once you’ve made this decision get excited because we are going to get you this job.

Next post will be on -How to get your dream job.
