The Fitness YouTubers I like to Follow

Welcome back again! Today, I thought I’d write about my favourite fitness influencers that I like to follow on YouTube. I’ve been quite good lately in getting some exercise done on a weekly basis. I feel like I’ve finally found my “balance” in this area whereas years ago, I would’ve struggled or just not have bothered with exercise because I thought I wasn’t good at it. Now it’s become one of my favourite hobbies. To give you a bit of background, I was technically bad at sport in high school. Thinking back, part of it stemmed from truly believing that I was bad at team sport and therefore I could not contribute much. I let that beat my confidence. But that’s the thing. Good exercise starts with positive thinking and this is the part which I needed to change the most in order to grow. I needed to start believing that actually, I was not as bad at fitness as I had once thought. I was actually quite decent I might add.  At that time …

My Current Everyday Makeup and Favourites

It’s been a time since I’ve written anything makeup-related so I thought I’d kick things off again by letting you in on my current everyday makeup routine. I was going to call it a makeup tutorial but I didn’t want to seem like some self-defined high-up person who could teach about makeup. I’m just a girl who somehow got into it and figured what’s best for me and what’s not, y’know? Certainly, there are a lot of makeup favourites in this routine which I’ve stuck to everyday – or at least every time I do my makeup. It’s perfect for work but also dressy enough to go out – a little something but not overly done. I actually haven’t gotten sick of the routine and since a job change, I realise how routine is so key. I’d like it if you could reply with your current makeup routine and favourites. In exchange, here’s mine! It would also benefit you greatly if you grabbed a hot beverage as this is a long post… Featured in this …

My Favourite Beauty Combinations

I have been thinking about this topic for quite some time. It just occurred to me one evening whilst I was laying in bed (the best time for inspiration don’t you think?) and since then, I have been so excited to write this. This year probably marks the year where my routines are maturing. I know what I want to use, what product I’m looking for and which products I like using together or might possibly work well together. It’s less of the wishy-washy stuff and more of the products that really speak for themselves. Functionality over aesthetics. So without further ado, here it is, my favourite beauty combinations. No7 Youthful Eye Serum + Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream This is my favourite eyecare combo to date! I have long been a fan of the No7 Youthful Eye Serum so I would recommend it as a base for any of your eye creams. For me, once I introduced the Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream along with it, it was a game-changer. I have been using eye cream …

Quarterly Favourites #1

Some new changes! I decided to follow a new set-up for my Favourites posts. Although these are my favourite to write (oh, the irony), I am not as inspired to write them monthly anymore. Or rather, I should say I don’t have that many unique favourites each month to show you. There are some months where I’m still in love with the previous month’s favourites or where I haven’t tried anything new. Or worse yet, where I don’t like anything. So instead, I’m combining 3 months of favourites into one. I think this is more realistic anyways – I use products for months on end! If you hadn’t already noticed, I completely skipped February because I didn’t use anything particularly new. I probably only had two favourites so a post seemed pointless on those two items. My January Monthly Favourites still stands, of course, but for a moment, let’s just pretend I’m starting new and showing you my favourites from January to March. To change things up a bit more, I am including lifestyle favourites …

January Monthly Favourites ft. Real Techniques and Bobbi Brown!

I am thrilled to talk about this month’s favourites!  Last month was quite a boring month (even if it was Christmas month…) because I didn’t really try anything new or if I did, it was very late within the month. Mainly, I stuck to my previous favourites so nothing changed. Despite so, my last favourites post actually fared really well, so thank you everyone! 🙂 I haven’t been beauty shopping much* because I am trying to use up what I do have whilst also resetting my current collection – both in skincare and makeup. This month’s buys consist only of two brushes (featured here) but everything else are months old in terms of purchase, so you can imagine my delight when I finally got round to trying (and loving) them! *I’ve bought bits and bobs from Home Bargains the other day, but they were extremely cheap and cheerful. Half were essentials and replacement items!  Here they are, in all their glory, my favourites of the month… Featured in this post: Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil …
