How Much Does My Skincare Routine Cost?

It’s probably not the right time in the year to talk about money but everyone knows that I’m a self-proclaimer in not following trends. 😛 Besides, I am not making you buy a product; we are just having a discussion because who hasn’t thought about the accumulated cost of a particular category? I had thought about joining the gym this year but when doing the math, I didn’t think that me spending £300 a year was going to be efficiently used because I actually wouldn’t go (I don’t enjoy it enough to go). Skincare on the other hand…I wouldn’t say I would spend profusely on it but certainly there have been times where I’ve spent money on the whim without looking at descriptions or reviews of the product(s) in question. I have never calculated how much my skincare routine is worth so this could turn out to be very interesting. For those who follow me on Instagram, I already shared one of my skincare routines. That’s right, I am currently running two skincare routines so …

#Selfcare Sunday Series | How to Make your New Years Resolutions/Goals Count This Year

Happy Sunday! I hope everyone has had a re-charged weekend! I have been sleeping terrible overall…I just can’t seem to get comfortable but most of all, I have been finding it hard to shut my mind down. Even though on the surface and in general, my personality is very chilled, my mind is in fact going 100mph. Does anyone have any tips for sleeping better? I’m going to try some different teas to see if that would help but at the moment, I’ve been feeling like a zombie. Anyways – back to topic: I wanted to tap into more advice-giving posts this year so to start 2020 off, I’m going to be rounding off my best tips to getting your New Years resolutions in-check this year! If you don’t believe in them, that’s totally fine – just replace them with any goals throughout the year that you may have! Create a Rough Timeline Note that I mentioned ‘rough’. It’s important to have clear goals but nothing is set in stone unless you have a deadline …

My Current Playlist #3

For those unfamiliar to this series, I simply post 30 songs that I have been recently listening to in the past few weeks. My playlist can be very mixed as I tap into a lot of different genres as to avoid repeating what’s already being played on mainstream radio. Oh, and there are a few Christmas songs which are no longer relevant but were when I was compiling this list, haha! Enjoy. 🙂 Here are my top 30 picks as of recent: Billie Eilish – bellyache Billie Eilish – watch Billie Eilish – all the good girls go to hell TSHA – Me You Tones and I – Dance Monkey Mabel – Loneliest Time of Year Lewis Capaldi – Before You Go Stormzy – Vossi Bop Stormzy – Superheroes Stormzy – Do Better Stormzy – Lessons Stormzy ft. MNEK – Blinded By Your Grace (part 2) Harry Styles – Adore You Harry Styles – Falling The Weeknd – Blinding Lights Sam Smith – Get Here (cover) blackbear – hot girl bummer blackbear – Weak When …

If We Were Having Coffee #5

Happy new year, loves! I actually haven’t written one of these in a good 5/6 months so what better way to start the year off than with some coffee time on the blog? It’s undoubtedly still winter so grab your hot beverage and catch up with me below on where I’ve been and what I have set for 2020: If we were having coffee, I would tell you… Like every year, I make a group of New Years resolutions. Obviously, a good half of them are the same like any other year – read more, do more exercise, eat better, sleep better. This year, I decided that I would learn to cook and make some yummy new dishes. Towards the end of 2019, I got really bored of what I was bringing into work everyday food-wise – I just felt uninspired. I love food but to not put that same passion into cooking is quite frankly disappointing. I mean, I know how to cook but it would just be nice to make something new and …

My Current Playlist #2

If you follow me on my Instagram, you’ll know that one of my favourite things that I love to upload on my IG Stories is screenshots of what I’m listening to on Spotify at that moment. I am on the constant search for new artists and tend to support smaller indie artists now since I’ve rinsed my mainstream playlists like a million times – bored is an understatement. Can we please just talk about Harry Style’s recent SNL live performances though?! The man is doing no wrong! So inclusive! (This is also coming from someone who’s traditionally not a 1D fan.) Here’s my newly assembled list of 30 songs that I’ve been enjoying as of late: Keshi – 2 soon Keshi – summer Keshi – right here Zedd, Kehlani – Good Thing Why Mona – Wannabe (Spice Girls cover!) Lauv – Bracelet OneRepublic – Rescue Me Noah Kahan – False Confidence Harry Styles – Lights Up Harry Styles – Watermelon Sugar Chance the Rapper (ft. John Legend) – All Day Long Chance the Rapper (ft. …
