Pink Parcel

Tuesday, 21 November 2017

Last week I took part in an instagram collaboration with Pink Parcel. Pink Parcel are a subscription box (I know what you're thinking, not another one) with a bit of a twist. They're not your typical beauty box, although they can have a few beauty related goodies in, they're actually a subscription service for when you're on your period. Absolutely genius.

My new favourite moisturiser

Friday, 17 November 2017

I'm not one to spend a lot on skincare. In fact, I try to avoid the high end brands. Currently the only slightly pricier items I have in my skincare collection is the Pixi Cleansing Balm (£18), and the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish (£15) which I asked for as a gift. Looking at these now, they're not the most expensive out there, but for a student on a budget, they're not your typical Garnier Cleansing Water that will cost you a fiver and last you a lifetime.

The importance of treating yourself

Tuesday, 14 November 2017

In life, I think one very important aspect is treating ourselves once in a while. Each of us are busy people, leading busy, and often very stressful lives. Without a treat once in a while I wonder how we would function properly. Now, I'm a student - while I wish treating myself was whisking myself off for a mini break to somewhere exotic, quite often it's simply having a lie in. And that's perfectly fine, and absolutely brilliant.

Bright Stripes

Friday, 10 November 2017

Christmas is officially on its way. The scarves and gloves have come out for winter and I feel like this week we've finally got that crisp chill in the air. I kinda love it kinda hate it. I don't do well with cold but I bloody love a bit of Christmas spirit. I really should start my Christmas shopping. I'm not one to leave it until last minute usually but uni might get in the way of that this year. One year I will be one of those super organised people and have all my Christmas shopping done by November, just not this year.

5 ways to get into a better headspace

Tuesday, 7 November 2017

Some days I wake up, and I feel a little bit shitty. No particular reason for it, other than hormones maybe! My headspace isn't great and I don't feel up to talking to people or getting anything done. Having a horrible headspace is something I've accepted now - it happens from time to time and I've come up with a few little rituals or jobs I can do to help get myself out of that zone.
