GRWM – England Spring Ed.

It’s Monday, my favourite day of the week. A day for new beginnings. Maybe a new outfit, or two. Maybe a new makeup style, or hair do. Today I wanted to share kind of a different post with you. (I hope that’s okay) I mean, I’ve posted a couple of these types of posts in the past and I really enjoy writing them.

So today I present you with an England (because England is mostly cold) spring edition of GRWM. I hope you enjoy.

I love wearing dungarees. They are so summery and comfortable.

I tend to feel quite self conscious about my body. But I hope by posting these types of posts I can learn to accept my body for how it is.

This spring I’m wanting to try wearing different types of clothes. I’m wanting to try different makeup styles.

For this look I have used the Urban Decays Naked 2 Basic Palette. I think I bought this for about £24.

I have used the colour ‘frisk’ all over my eyelid.

‘Primal’ in the crease.

I then took the darkest colour ‘undone’ and used it as a eyeliner and just lined the top lash line.

I then used the colour ‘stark’ and placed that in the inner section of my eye. I blended all the colours together so there is a nice transition between the colours.

Finally I took the colour ‘skimp’ and used it to highlight my brow bone.

I’ve had this palette for about 2 months now. I am IN LOVE with it. This is the palette I use to do my everyday makeup. I look the looks that you can create with it.

As always, thank you for reading. ❤

What is your favourite outfit to wear in Spring?

Things I’m Loving This February.

It’s that time of month again. It’s time to discuss some of the things I’ve been loving this February.

Admittedly I don’t have as many things to include in this months list. I didn’t want to repeat some of the things that I had included in my previous favourite posts.

I’m not usually a big fan of tic tac’s. I was in the convenience shop earlier this month I came across these and I had to try them.

They are lovely and so refreshing!

Now I set myself a little bit of a reading challenge this year. I feel like I’m doing so well so far. I’m really pleased with myself. This month I came across these two books. Let me tell you now, they are the most influential books I’ve ever read. I had heard of The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck a couple of months ago and hadn’t had the time to purchase it and give it a read. I’m about halfway through it and I’m just amazed by the content. Seriously, they’re both worth a read.

I wrote a little about Reasons To Stay Alive here.

I’m in love with the scent of this shower gel. It was so cheap too, I think I bought it for £1 from Superdrug. I will definitely be repurchasing this!

I’ve been really into getting baths this month. I’ve found them incredibly relaxing. I’ve found it’s been that much more relaxing with a candle a face mask and a good book.  So this is my favourite candle at the minute. I bought it because of ‘H’ of course! :p

So that’s it for my February favourites. ❤

Dear Journal,

How was your weekend?

Firstly, I would just like to apologise for not uploading a post last Thursday. I just felt that it wasn’t good enough to upload. I didn’t have the best of weeks last week. I’ve finally gotten over the cold and I’m feeling much better.

I had a day off work on Sunday. I was so happy. I would like to share what I got up to with you.

I got up super early and ate breakfast (I’ve been managing to get my three meals a day in, I’m so proud of myself) then I walked the dog. It was such beautiful day, it’s starting getting a little warmer which is nice. I love the spring weather.

I had a long to-do list to get through so I was glad to be hitting the ground running. I had lots of blog photos to take for March’s uploads. Then I did some post planning as well as some writing for a project I’m working on.

I’ve been remembering to take short breaks in between doing tasks so I don’t get overwhelmed and carried away, so I made time to do some reading and yoga.

After dinner I walked the dog again, then I did some baking. I forgot how much I love baking! Then I took a bath and did a face mask. It was divine! I don’t think I’ve felt that relaxed in a long time.

Thank you so much for reading ❤

What did you get up to at the weekend?

Don’t Stop Believing.

Dear Journal,

For the past couple of days I’ve been doing a lot of thinking. I look at the people around me. I look at where I am. I look at where I’ve been and what I’ve done this past year. I look at the person I’ve become.

When I returned to England a few months ago, I was heartbroken. I was on the edge of a breakdown. Not because I left South Korea. And not because I left my friends behind. And certainly not because I was returning to England. I was heartbroken because I felt like I had lost myself. I didn’t recognise this new me.

Returning to England has made me realise how much I’ve changed over the past year or so. It’s made me realise how much I value my family. It’s made me understand how important it is to value yourself.

I have had a tough week. Lots of bad days. I’m currently sick with a cold and I’ve lost my voice. But I’m not going to let that discourage me. I’ve had a fantastic start to 2017. I’m determined for that positive attitude to continue.

I’m going to continue to keep fighting. I’m going to strive to look after and love myself more.

I’m 23 years old and I have my whole life ahead of me. I can do this, because I am strong and determined.

Thank you very much for reading. I hope that you had a lovely weekend. ❤

My Lazy Morning Routine.

Good morning, how is your week going?

Today I wanted to share with you my typical lazy morning routine. Typically I get up between 8-9am. Recently, I’ve been having a coffee in the morning. I love the taste of coffee! I limit myself to just one coffee a day. More than one tends to make me feel a bit jittery and anxious.

I’m in love with this mug. I got it for Christmas. What more do you need in your life other than wifi, coffee and your bed? 😂

After some breakfast and coffee I make time to walk the puppy. I only take her out for a 15-20 minute walk but it’s refreshing. Sometimes if I’ve had a bad sleep I will wake up in a bad mood. I find that going for a short walk it considerably lifts my mood.

kakaotalk_photo_2017-02-01-15-55-50_43

After walking the puppy I tend to head upstairs and start some yoga. I’ve been doing ten minutes a day and it’s been really great. I recently picked up the latest edition of Cosmopolitan magazine and I found this tone-up work out section in it. I’ve really enjoyed doing these work outs as well as the yoga.

Excuse my Christmas socks. I don’t care that it’s February. I love Christmas and I will wear them throughout the year. 😂

I’ve really been into wearing makeup recently. You can see my ‘Everyday Winter Makeup’ post here. Whilst I’m getting ready I really love to listen to my #Motivation playlist that I’ve created on Spotify.

Makeup has been making me feel so much more confident and happy with my appearance. 🙂

I find that having a relaxed morning definitely sets the tone for the rest of the day. I also find d that I’m so much more productive if I get up early, go for a walk and fit in a little exercise.

What is your lazy morning routine like? ❤

Hello February.

kakaotalk_photo_2017-01-30-14-27-13_56

Dear Journal,

Where has this month gone?

I literally got zero sleep last night. I drank a mug of coffee this morning before work and I powered through. I’m so glad that I have two days off now. I have so many blog things I want to get started on for the coming month.

January was pretty great, but I am glad to say goodbye. I’m sure that February will bring some even more awesome things my way.

Yesterday I uploaded a post about February. Read it here 🙂

I’m going to crack on with some yoga. Have a late dinner. Paint my nails. Then get onto planning tomorrow’s shoot. I’m excited! 🙂

How is your week going so far? ❤

Reflecting On January.

kakaotalk_photo_2017-01-30-14-27-12_3

Overall, this month has been great. Tomorrow is the final day of the month. I can’t believe how fast this year is going already.

At the start of this month I was looking for a job, and now I’m currently working. I feel so much more in control of my life. Having this job definitely makes me feel like I have a lot more options in my life.  I feel much more free and happy. 🙂

This month I’ve really learnt how to appreciate all of the amazing things and the amazing people that I have in my life. I’m incredibly lucky. I want to continue feeling this positive.

I’m feeling so accomplished.

  1. I have a job.
  2. I’ve read this months book.
  3. I’ve kept to my weekly blog schedule.
  4. I’ve eaten more healthily.
  5. I’ve done yoga more.
  6. And most importantly, I’ve made time for myself. Self-care is so important. It’s so easy to always be cornered about others and forget to take care of yourself. 

Tonight I’m planning on going to bed early, and I will start reading a new book. Then I will be fully refreshed for work tomorrow morning. 🙂

How was your January?
