THIS POST CONTAINS GIFTED ITEMS.
Welcome to the first skincare post of 2020, are we all excited? I've been meaning to do a whole blog post on this topic for a while now and here we are. Self love is something that I always rave about, this could be taking a night out for pampering yourself, having your favorite meal and a early night or taking yourself away on a little holiday to relax and have some ultimate me time. Both of these are things that I've done myself in the past and I can't encourage you all to do the same. Talking from my own experience, I did not realize how much I needed alone time until I started to have it, I'm going to be completely honest. I took myself on holiday for about a week, all on my own and I have never felt so energized in my life, it was exactly what I needed. Our brains store so much information throughout each day and sometimes everything just gets a bit much, it doesn't matter weather you work 7 days a week or if you work 3 days a week, everybody is the same and we all get stressed and nobody should feel bad or embarrassed to admit that. We're all perfectly normal and we're human.

So, I usually take Sundays to give myself that time away from social media and the world in general. I love picking a Sunday as it's the end of the week, it's Monday tomorrow and I want to feel amazing on a Monday morning so I'm ready for a brand new week. The first plan of action is to run a bath, I've recently noticed how many people I know that don't like baths and that is crazy to me. Am I bathing in my own dirt? It's relaxing so I will always be a huge fan of a bath. I always use the Radox Men Muscle Therapy which is infused with black pepper and ginseng and it's been my go-to for years and I'm pretty happy about it. Adding a favorite scent or a soak to your bath can make you feel right at home.

After having a bath, I always like to moisturize my body and this isn't a recent thing. I did a few times quite a while a go and never went back to it but I notice such a difference in my skin,. especially now it's quite cold where I live and my skin is suffering I'm not going to lie. I've always banged on how I have really weird skin depending on the weather and it is really showing right now so a bit of moisture is exactly what my skin needs. I've been hugely obsessed with the Juicy Pear Body Yogurt (which was kindly gifted to me, thank you to The Body Shop!) which was part of this year's Christmas range and I am slightly upset that I may never be able to get another one but hey ho, I am using it very sparingly!

Now it's onto skin. My face is very confused by the weather at the moment and It's having some issues, I recently picked up the Vitamin E Overnight Serum-In-Oil from The Body Shop and boy, did I need an oil? Yes I did. Oils have always appeared quite scary to me and I'm not sure why, I hate the idea of rubbing oil on my face but it is so luxurious and I think this is a product that is going to be re-purchased and re-purchased again. After I've eat, shaved and 'skincared' my body up I am ready for bed and something that has been helping me sleep lately is the SugarBear Sleep Vitamins (this is NOT sponsored, by the way hehe!) and I'm not going to lie, I was skeptical when they contacted me and asked me if I'd like some sent to me to see if I like them. Now, it could just be in my bed but I got sent a few months worth (very kindly by the SugarBear team, thank you so much!) and I've been taking them for around two months now every night, I have two when I'm ready to sleep and I've binged watched a few things and they have been helping me so much, so if you would like to check them out then I will leave a link here for you.

Happy Sunday! If you haven't read my previous blog post, then you won't know this but I have moved and I've been slowly sorting how I want things to look and what I want in each room and I am so excited to show you some little snippets of my home office. I'm a true believer of having a separate room to work in because sometime last year I got into such a slump from working in my bed and I started to associate my bedroom with work, so now my bedroom is a full work-free room and I don't really even take my laptop in there anymore so I don't get into that again. I absolutely love this room in my office and I am very excited to show it to you and as always, the items (or similar) will be linked at the end of this post for you!

Hello again. I have been so super excited to sit down and write this post as it seems like forever seems I last updated you guys with anything (well it has). So, I want to get straight into this. Firstly, Happy New Year - its 2020! Insane. It's a whole new decade and I am feeling super excited about this year. The first exciting thing I need to update you guys on is that I have moved! This has been something that has been in the talks for a while now and due to my current family situation which isn't an issue and nothing is wrong, I've just decided to move and I am super super excited for this huge step in my life. I will be doing little updates over on my Snapchat (which is where I've been for the past few months I haven't been blogging, so you should definitely start following me on there if you don't already!) where you will slowly start to see how things are coming on in my new place etc etc!

Another thing... University. I am still at University if any of you are wondering, I am currently studying a health degree and I am in my second year. Honestly, the first year of University for me absolutely flew by and I loved every bit of it. The first of my second year has been a lot more harder for me to organize, I used to always organize when I was going to do what work (and absolutely everything in my life) and make sure it was completed by a certain date and that hasn't really happened lately. A lot of life things have happened, obviously I've been busy with moving and working behind the scenes on lots of different things that you will find out about very soon (I promise!). But anyway, I really want to change the way I've been handling my studies and things again and get back to being organised and knowing exactly when I'm doing work and when it will get done by. My diary is going to become my best friend again.

I also just want to say a HUGE thank you for 500,000 views on this platform. I haven't uploaded a post since hitting 500k but I just want to say a HUGE thank you. I don't ever talk about how much this has truly changed my life in such a positive way but you all make me so happy. 

I am overall so excited for 2020 and I hope it brings you lots of love and happiness! My schedule for 2020 is going to remain to one post a week on a Sunday at 4pm and I want to do more chatty posts like I used too and I'm going to get back into this because I've took a little break to have a bit of time for myself and just spend some time with my friends and family over Christmas and it's definitely what I've needed and I feel SUPER refreshed now and ready to start creating again and ready to smash the new year. I hope you're all well and I'll see you next Sunday with a brand new post!

Hello! So if you're new to my blog or just don't know this about me, I don't live too far from Birmingham and they have just opened their own H&M Home. And I was not prepared for how amazing it is. I've been obsessed with homeware and interiors since I was very young and walking into a shop that is purely homeware is a DREAM. So I wanted to capture a few pictures for you to showcase the new store!
