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 …

Lately on Netflix #2

It has gotten colder as of late and you know what? – I’m not even mad. I genuinely love the autumn/winter season. I love the cold breeze and how smooth my skin feels. Anyways – today is not a post about skincare or makeup. It’s about Netflix. You know, the other thing that we snuggle up to regardless of season because TV kinda died. Or at least I don’t watch TV anymore. (Please comment regarding this – I’m actually interested to find who still watches TV because I really don’t nowadays.) I really enjoyed writing the last part so I thought I’d fill you in on what I’ve been watching lately…again. Here’s to #2! A Silent Voice Okay, let’s start off with the anime first! I would say that this year is all about going outside of…I guess not comfort-zone because I am generally open to trying out different genres but definitely stuff that I wouldn’t normally watch. One night I fancied watching a film and this one caught my eye on Netflix randomly and …

Lately on Netflix #1

For those who consistently blog whilst maintaining a 9-5 job – how do you do it? Admittedly, I have been particularly tired since entering the new season (although yay! for Autumn – my preferred season). I have been waking up around 6am and ugh – it is so dark. Luckily, I’ve booked some upcoming days off so I hope to relax my mind and catch up with more sleep as I’ve been surviving on 6 hours sleep mostly which in the summer is fine but rather wearing in the darker months. (I’ve decided that I’m never going to fix my late-night owl ways.) Anyways, I had some time to write and thought I’d kick things off by reviewing what I’ve been watching lately. I’m super late to the Netflix game – don’t ask how but let’s just say I’m glad to be on the bandwagon now. To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before I wanted to start with the most obvious one because I feel like lots of girls have been fan-girling over how cute …

A Curious LUSH Haul + 1 Throwback

I asked a few weeks ago whether you wanted to read a haul post. It was a stupid question with an obvious answer but it’s always nice to test the waters, isn’t it? Plus it fuels my excitement to share even more. This is only a small fraction of what I purchased with most being from the LUSH Christmas Sale but nevertheless, items that I’m making relevant to my lifestyle as of now. Since I had quite a handful of LUSH products to show you – all except one being entirely new to me, I thought I’d group these into a post of their own. In other words, another haul post is coming after this one…but first, let’s talk all things LUSH shall we? Featured in this post: Sleepy Body Lotion Snowman Shower Jelly (Christmas Exclusive) Bubbly Shower Gel (Christmas Ex.) Buck’s Fizz Body Conditioner (Christmas Ex.) Salt and Peppermint Bark Body Scrub (Christmas Ex.) Shooting Stars Soap (Christmas Ex.) Mask of Magnaminty Self-Preserving Face and Body Mask I haven’t shopped since my trip to …
