For me, getting someone a gift that doesn't just look luxurious but something that is actually so practical is the way to go and I have the perfect solution (if you're struggling for what to get your loved one!) Nordgreen offer sustainable designer watches that capture a sophisticated minimalism vibe that is perfect for everyone. Not to forget their amazing sustainable packaging that are formed by up-cycled plastic bottles. You can read more about Nordgreen's story here.
I was looking for something a little special to gift my Dad for Father's Day and I found the perfect watch from Nordgreen which is the Native White Dial and I opted for a brown leather strap. All watches at Nordgreen are fully customizable which means you can make the watch look and fit any way you like, from how big you would like the watch face to what color strap is perfect for you or a loved one. They make the perfect gift. With life being a little odd lately, it has really opened my eyes to brands that do so much for people that are less unfortunate than ourselves, Nordgreen donate a percentage of each sale to help people in devastating circumstances - they have teamed up with Water for Good, Pratham UK and Cool Earth to give more people access to clean water, education and preserve 200 sqft of rain forest in Latin America for every watch that is purchased through the Nordgreen site. I was so delighted to hear that Nordgreen wanted to work with me on this post, I found such an inspiring quote on their website that read "We believe the right to good health, a clean enviroment, and a full education are rights for all. The Harsh reality, however, is that much of the world does not experience them. Motivated by our Danish values, when we founded Nordgreen, we knew we had to do our part to help to change this in whatever way we could. There was no excuse not to give back" and the best thing about it is that you can decide which cause your purchase goes towards.

You may be achieving significant milestones in your life and aren't celebrating nearly as often as you should be. It's important to take the time to acknowledge your achievements and reward yourself appropriately. Doing so will help to keep you motivated and on track for accomplishing even more as time goes on. Practicing self-care will make you feel better and you'll have more energy to continue reaching for your desired goals in life. It's also important to remember that it's not selfish to attend to your needs and care for yourself.

Sleep In & Rest - One way to reward yourself and practice self-care that I have found is to get more sleep and enjoy having a rest. Pick a day or two that you can sleep in and don't set your alarm. Turn your phone off and have some me time. Taking breaks from social media and being on your phone can do wonders for your mental health and well-being. 

Treat Yourself - You can also reward yourself by treating yourself to something that you've always wanted. Think about what you've been dreaming about and saving up for and then have fun shopping for it and becoming the proud owner of a special present to yourself. A few ideas include purchasing a new outfit or a Richard Mille watch. It's a chance for you to treat yourself without feeling guilty about how much you're spending.

Take a Day Off Work - Another idea if you want to reward or treat yourself is to book yourself some holiday off work and relax. Use it as an opportunity to spend time doing what you love. For instance, go for a coffee with a friend or plan a trip away and do the activities you love to do. Taking time off work may be all you need to improve your mental health and get yourself feeling motivated to work hard. Whilst work is important, so is your health and wellness and a break may be all you need to feel your best and more confident about how for you've come.

Go For A Hike or Bike Ride - Exercise doesn't always have to be a chore and there are so many health benefits that is offers too. Going for a hike on a new trail is a excellent way to clear your mind and reduce any stress you're feeling as well. Go outside in nature so you can appreciate what is around you. This could be fun to take a friend with you too!

Did you know that Revolution did skincare? Because I certainly didn't. One day I was searching for some new products from a brand that I had never come across before and I stumbled upon Revolution's website and found that they do some amazing skincare products. I decided to go for a new moisturizer as with the weather changing my skin is suffering as usual and it has become so dry again which has become a slight problem I've dealt with the past few months so trying out new products for hydration is always a task that is on top of my list. 
With that, I decided to go for the Protection Boost Moisturizer which has got to be my new favorite. When first applying it, I was so impressed with how creamy the formula actually was and it just feels like it is doing wonders for my skin, this proved to be correct after a month of trying this product I am so impressed with how it hydrates my face and how long it moisturizes it for. My face feels so hydrated throughout the day. I usually use this product twice a day, first when I wake up and straight after showering in the evening when my pores are open (Just a little sidenote, I would recommend everyone does their skincare straight after a shower as I always find it is when my pores are the most open and my skin gets so dry when coming out the shower so it just feels super refreshing).

The next products I went for were a set of Essence Sprays which I was firstly just intrigued of as I've never tried anything like that before. I remember when I was working with The Body Shop, they sold a similar thing and theirs were amazing. I've been using the Hydrating Essence Spray for around a month too and the combination of the moisturizer and the spray is doing wonders for my skin. My pores feel so much cleaner and I am so happy I stumbled upon Revolutions products.

I hope you enjoyed this weeks post - as always, everything is linked in the post if you wanted to check out any of the products mentioned. I hope you're all staying safe and well.

I have not done one of these for a bloooming long time and I have not been doing an awful lot lately, apart from sitting in my flat and playing a lot of XBOX (I'm currently waiting for my switch to arrive and then that will quickly take over my life haha!). I hope you enjoy this weeks post and I hope you're all doing well and staying safe. Update: Since writing this post a few weeks ago, my Nintendo Switch has arrived and I haven't left it alone for more than an hour hehe but this post was written before receiving it so that's why it's not included!

XBOX ONE
So there we go, say hello to my first fave. My XBOX One. I have never been massive on gaming until recently, I mean.. I'm still not huge on it but I do love it and I don't understand how I went so long without having my own console. It passes a lot of time and I've been using it lately to just occupy myself and make the time go a bit faster (and it works!).

APPLE AIRPODS
The next thing I've been loving is my Airpods, I didn't know how much I needed them until I had them - they're so useful and handy to have! I love being able to clean my flat and not having to worry about a cable. They have been such a huge investment for me and I love them A LOT. They're also perfect for people who go on runs, I can imagine (really imagine) that it would be so much easier without a cable attached to your phone, getting in the way whilst running or doing exercise!

EASTPAK POUCH 
Okay, it can't just be me that has saw everyone walking around with these little pouches and I know I know at first, I wasn't a huge fan of it. It wasn't for me until I brought a pouch and started using it, I then realized how much of a great idea a pouch actually is. I'm not one of these people who carry a lot around with them, I usually tend to just carry the few things I need, such as my keys, cards and my phone and that's it - so I used to essentially carry a huge bag around for no reason whatsoever. It 's so useful to have with me and I LOVE IT.

JIMMY CARR CONCERT DVD
If you didn't know this about me, I love Jimmy Carr and I've never saw him in concert or anything but I just bloody love his humor, it's not for everyone I know and sometimes it's a little too dark but that is essentially my humor and I really like him. I got brought these by someone who I used to work with last Christmas and I'm yet to watch them but if you like dark humor then you need to watch his clips on Youtube because they will make you laugh a lot (Obviously, goes without saying - depending on your age as his jokes aren't really for younger ages!)

CADBURY BRUNCH BAR
FOOD. I love food. I had to include a food item in this post. I am not a person who likes cereal, in fact I don't even like milk (unless it's in tea and I have the tiniest bit!) but I needed something to grab for breakfast if I'm in a rush to start working and these are delicious, they're perfect.

SET OF MUGS (SIMILAR)
This post was called 'random' for a reason. New mugs. Not a great lot I can say about these but I just saw them in Aldi (I KNOW!) and thought wow, I love you. So I brought them. I love mugs with a good big handle and these have such a nice handle. Great mugs. (I hope self isolation isn't making you talk about mugs too, I'm going a tad insane!)
