My Goals For April

Hello lovelies, today I thought I’d talk to you about my goals that I’m hoping to reach by the end of April. I haven’t done a post about my goals yet but I thought it was a good idea and that it might help me to become more proactive with reaching my goals if I write about them!

Be more active on social media

My first goal for April is to be more active on social media especially Instagram, I haven’t had it for too long but I really love photography so I’m going to try to post a lot more regularly on there. Since starting up my blog 2 months ago I’ve found so many people, and everyone is so supportive of each other particularly on Twitter. I’ve been really enjoying using it and finding other blogs from it. I want to get more engaged and tweet more because I think it’s a great platform for all bloggers!

Blog Schedule

I would like make a schedule for my blog and have a timetable for when my posts are going up. I don’t want to put too much pressure on myself because blogging is something I love doing, but i also want to grow my page and I think that posting on a schedule is going to help me to be more organised so I can manage my time and blog more easily along with the rest of my life! I want to get a notebook dedicated to my blog so I can write down any ideas that i get and I can draw up a timetable for when different posts are going up. Let me know how you plan you blog in the comments!

Followers

My blog is growing slowly but surely, I’m so grateful for the amount of people who have followed me and read my blog I didn’t expect so many people to be interested! My goal for April is to have 300 followers, I’m currently at 270 so I really hope I can make it by the end of April! On twitter I have 540 followers and I’d love to get it 550 or maybe even 600 but I think that 550 would be a more realistic goal that is reachable for me at the moment!

Coursework

My last goal is to complete my coursework that is due in before the end of the month, I find it hard to focus and keep my attention when I’m working. To help myself complete this goal I want to take regular breaks so I can refresh my mind and then get beck into working,  I think this will help me to get work done faster. As this is my last year at college I am trying to aim as high as i can, to do this I need to take more time with my coursework and not leave it too late. I have a habit of rushing my assignments because i can’t get started with them, to help myself I feel like I need to be more organised. I’m thinking about making a schedule for my coursework to help me know what times and days I need to be working to help it be less rushed.

I’d love to know what one of your goals are for April in the comments!

Thanks for reading 🙂

Night Time Skin Care Routine

Hello lovelies, today I wanted to talk to you about my night-time skin care routine and what products I use.

dscn0925.jpg

To start my night time routine i use either the Body shop vitamin E cream cleanser or my Derma V10 Micellar cleansing water and some cotton pads, both of these work really well and they don’t irritate my skin at all which is great. Both of these products are really nice to use but if you are not a fan of having scented products around your eyes I would say to go for the micellar water because it’s not perfumed. I have recently purchased the Liz Earl cleanse and polish I really love how it makes my skin feel after I use it but I am not a big fan of how the product smells I am going to have a try it a few more time before I can say whether I would use it over my other cleansers.

DSCN0923

After I’ve removed my makeup I have two different facial washes that I use, Clearasil is a really gentle face wash that leaves my skin feeling really smooth and soft and I like it because it not perfumed, it’s also very affordable and you can buy it in most drugstores and supermarkets. The Body Shop’s Vitamin E gentle facial wash is something I like to use because it makes my skin feel really clean and fresh and it has a lovely scent that’s not too powerful. I like to alternate between the two of these.

DSCN0930

If you have read my previous posts you will know I love  The Body Shop’s Vitamin E moisture cream. I like to use this moisturiser because it is light and it doesn’t take too long to sink into my skin. I find that it makes my skin feel more rehydrated in the morning if I put it on before I go to sleep because I do tend to have quite dry skin so this moisturiser helps.

DSCN0663

If I have had a pamper evening that night or I feel like I want to be relaxed I will put some lavender or rose balm on both of my wrists at my pulse points. I find that this helps me to go to sleep because the smells relax me and make me feel more calm. I like to use a lip balm in my night-time skin care routine especially because it’s still cold outside as it helps to keep my lips hydrated and moisturised.

What skincare products do you use in your night-time routine?

Thanks for reading 🙂

February Favourites

Hello lovelies, sorry I’ve not posted for a few days I haven’t been feeling too well. I really like to read these types of posts so I thought I should give it a go for myself. I’m going to be writing about pretty much anything that I’ve been liking over that particular month. Because I started my blog at the beginning of this month February will be my first monthly favourites post!

DSCN0900

There have been a few things I’ve really been enjoying through february one of which is the Wilde Like me book I mentioned this in my Sunshine Blogger Award post because it has become one of my favourite books. I love how its such an easy light-hearted read. It’s about real life and a Mother who has a 6-year-old daughter she’s divorced is back out looking for love as well as that she is trying to build up her career as an assistant MUA and is offered a big job, I don’t want to give the whole story away but it is such a good book. I’ve got about 40 pages left, and then I will be waiting for the sequel to be released!

My next favourite of the month is the Nivea face cream. As the weather has been so cold and I have naturally quite dry skin it makes it even worse, so I use this cream on any of the dryer patches on my face and apply it before I go to bed and in the morning. I like to use this cream when my skin is dryer than normal because it’s thicker than my Body Shop Vitamin E Moisturiser, i think it’s a bit more nourishing and hydrating on my skin.

DSCN0903

I LOVE candles! Since it’s the start of a new year I wanted to use something new that i hadn’t tried before. Because i own so many candles my mum actually put some wax melts into my stocking at christmas and i decided to save them until the new year. I’ve used this melt about 5 times and the scent is still going really well i love Yankee candle and the idea of wax melts because they are definitely a lot less money and they give off the same amount of pay off with scent in my opinion. I really love the smell of pink sands and i will definitely be repurchasing!

I haven’t been too well health wise over this past month so I haven’t been wearing much makeup because I had to go out anywhere or really been feeling like wanting to wear it. The one thing I have been using for when I do go out is my collection lasting perfection concealer, its great for covering up the dark circles under my eyes due to my lack of sleep! I feel like I look a lot more alive after I have put a bit of this concealer as it helps to put a bit of colour back into my face which is great ahah.

I’ve also been catching up on lots of tv over February, I’ve really been loving Jack Whitehall’s series Travels with my Father which is on Netflix currently, I find myself laughing pretty much the whole way through each episode. There are also new episodes of Call the Midwife each week on BBC1 which I absolutely love its one of my all time favourite shows, it’s really a cosy show and i just love everything about it even if it does make me cry every time!

I hope you enjoyed reading this post and next month hopefully I’ll be feeling better and there will be a few more things for me to show you!

Let me know in the comments what your favourites have been this month?

Thanks for reading 🙂

Sunshine Blogger Award

9945ea11-ddc3-40cf-b2dd-96a986a62658.png

 

Hello lovelies how are you all doing?

I have been nominated by the lovely Ellie Lou! You should definitely go and check out her blog it’s fab!

 

The Rules

1.) Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you and link back to their blog

2.) Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you

3.) Nominate 11 new blogs to receive this award, and write them 11 new questions

4.) List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog

 

  1. What made you start blogging?

I had really been wanting to start a blog for a while before i made one, the thing that made me start it was that i got a boost of confidence from somewhere and i decided to take advantage of it and did what i wanted to do. I had always been really nervous about starting a blog because i wasn’t sure about how it would go down and whether people what like what i was posting or even read it! luckily i realised that this community is amazing and so supportive, I’m so glad that i started my blog.

2.   What is one brand or person you would love to collab with?

To be honest i would love to work with any makeup/ beauty brands out there it would be an amazing opportunity, some of my favourites would be Makeup Revolution or The Body Shop because there products are amazing. I would love to collab with any other beauty or lifestyle bloggers, if anybody wanted to collab with me i’d definitely be up for it!

3.   What is one thing you couldn’t live without?

The one thing that i couldn’t live without would have to be my boyfriend (cheesy i know) but he is my complete rock and stands by me and supports me through everything I’ve been through which I’m so grateful for. Also my family of course because we are all really close and i know that they would do anything to help me.

4.   What advice would you give to new bloggers?

Well i am pretty new myself i have only been blogging for about two weeks but i would say don’t be afraid to start blogging if its something you want to do. I would say that you should make sure you are blogging about something you are passionate towards because otherwise you might find yourself lost about what to write next. I think social media is really important for new bloggers because it will help you to meet fellow bloggers and there is a great community online i think especially on twitter.

5.   If you could get a lifetime supply of sweets/chocolate, what pack/bar would it be?

My favourite chocolate is going to have to be kinder, its been my all time favourite for a number of years so i would have to definitely choose them! I also love sqaushies so if i could i both i would ahah.

6.   What’s your dream holiday destination?

I would love to go on holiday to the Maldives, with clear blue water and sandy beaches i also love how quiet and serene it looks i’d love to just lie on the beach and read a book in peace. It would be my number one holiday destination and i hope i will get to go there at some point in my lifetime.

7.   What’s your favourite blog post of your own so far?

As i am quite new to blogging i don’t have many posts up yet so i don’t have much to choose from but a couple of my favourites would be my Whats in my handbag and How i store my makeup because i really like the photography that i used in both of the posts.

8.   If you could have one super power, what would it be?

I think if i could have a super power i would have to choose super strength or be able to fly its really hard to choose from. It would be amazing to be able to do both but i think be able to fly across the sky would be incredible so it would have to be that.

9.   What’s a few of your favourite books?

I am currently reading Louise Pentlands ‘Wilde Like Me’ and I’m loving it. Its a really great book and i feel like its quite real, its not too far away from reality like you get with some books of its genre. Its about a Mother who has a 6 year old daughter and is divorced she’s back out looking for love as well as that she is trying to build up her career as an assistant MUA and is offered a big job… i don’t want to give anymore away so if your interested i reading go and pick it up from a library or bookshop! I also absolutely loved The Fault In Our Stars by John Green most people have probably read this book by now and i watched the movie though before i read the book so i wasn’t able to create the characters in my head for myself. Beside that the story is incredible and it did wear me down into a blubbering mess but it was a great read and i did really enjoy it. A few of my other favourite books are Hush, Hush by Becca Fizpatrick and Girl Online by Zoe Sugg. Since I’ve been at college i haven’t had much time to read but these have been my favourites for a while.

10.   If you won the lottery, what would you spend it on?

If i was to win the lottery i would deficiently go shopping first. Then i would probably book a holiday and go somewhere hot with a sandy beach. After that i would save the rest of the money!

11.   If you could give your past self one piece of advice, what would it be?

If i could give myself any advice i would probably say not to worry so much about what others and what they might think about you. You can wear and do whatever you want, if that makes you happy then you do you. Don’t fear being judged!
