How to get out of your comfort zone?

Everything you want is just outside of your comfort zone

This quote has literally changed my life. I know it’s basic and pretty much common sense, but the moment I read it in the book ‘how to get from where you are to where you want to be’ by Jack Canfield it really resonated with me. If you haven’t read this book yet then please do! It really is a game changer.  I used to think I was quite an out-going girl. A girl who would go for what she wants and willing to try new things. Little did I know that I am so confined and comfy in my comfort zone that I didn’t even notice the zone to begin with.

Have you ever found yourself saying all the things that you would want in life but never actually doing anything about it? Well, yeah that’s me. Although I would describe myself as having a good work ethic I know that right now everything I am doing is within my comfort zone.

It seems we can all say what we want, but we never put it into action. This is either  because we we are too lazy, not sure how to begin or because it is outside of our happy, comfortable bubble that we have created. Well huns I am here to tell you that it’s time to leave your nice, cosy king-size bed with extra blankets comfort zone.

If you are super happy with your life and wouldn’t change a thing, then obviously don’t leave your bed because it sounds amazing however, I am sure there might be one part of your life that you would like to work on. If there is then stay tuned because I am going to give you some helpful tips to step out your comfort zone into the wonderful world of opportunities.

Step 1. Decide which areas in your life need a little tweak and write it down. You won’t be able to change things until you have identified what needs to be changed.

Step 2. If you carry on doing the same thing you will get the same results. So try something completely new. If you are looking for new business, speak to different people. Make an ad for your business or turn to social media. If you want to get a promotion, speak to your boss and advise them why you want and deserve it. If you want to meet the love of your life, go out to different places, join a dating website. Do something that you wouldn’t normally do.

Step 3. Gain knowledge and ask for help, you don’t have to do this alone. There are loads of people that are willing to help you. Buy books and search the internet, there is so much infomation available.

Step 4. Keep pushing. It is going to get uncomfortable and you might face new obstacles everyday but remember anything worth having doesn’t come easy.

Step 5. Write down every new thing you do and review it in three months. You will be amazed by the results and proud of yourself for stepping outside your comfort zone.

Why self-love is so important…

img_1090

I never really understood the notion of self-love. I always thought it was a bit cringe or something that people focused on after a break-up. But once I hit my twenties I finally realised why self love is so important. For one reason or another life gets in the way and our own health and well-being goes right out the window. The older we get the less we tend to look after ourselves physically and mentally. When was the last time you had some ‘you’ time?

Self-love is not only about looking after your mind and body but it’s also about loving yourself unconditionally, flaws included. It’s about discovering who you are as a person, the things you like and don’t like and being true to yourself. We live in a world where we seek validation and approval from others. We compare ourselves and criticize our own decisions. In some cases, we become our own worst enemy. This is why learning to love yourself is so important because if you do not love yourself, how do you expect other people to love you. If you are constantly putting yourself down, this is the image you are portraying to the world. When you practice self-love and accept yourself fully, amazing things will happen. You will no longer settle for half-ass relationships or not going for that promotion that you’ve been dreaming about. You will have the confidence to strive for what you truly want in life with no regrets. You won’t need to seek validation from anyone because you know you’ve got your own back.

Some people have a misconception of self-love. It not about being selfish and excluding yourself from the world. It’s about understanding and appreciating who you are as a person. Once you are aware of who you are and want you want life you can start to put this into practice.

For the next month, I want you to focus on yourself as much as possible. Do all of the things that you want to do. Run yourself a bath, order a take-away, get a baby sitter and have a night out. Write a list of all of the things you want to achieve this year. Note down the things that make you happy and stop doing things that make you unhappy. Once you learn to love yourself completely everything else will follow.

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.

IMG_4895Gosh, how depressing was my last post?! Things haven’t been great for me and I couldn’t bring myself to write anything, but here I am. Have you ever been in the situation where something awful happens and you think, surely things can’t get any worse? Well guess what kids it can. The last 18 months have been tragic, you honestly couldn’t make this sh*t up. But I feel like I am finally ready now, i’m back. I’ve always loved to write but the thought of writing down the events that have taken place means that this is real, this is actually happening.

The realisation that my little brother has passed away, I am unhappy all the time whilst also dating the boy version of Satan has finally sunk in and the best thing I can do it write about it.FullSizeRender

So be prepared for jumbled posts about love, sadness, grief, gym, partying, holidays, lifestyle and utter rubbish because this is me. As Jen Sincero would say ‘Love yourself right now, wherever you are at’.
