Five Things I’m Loving This January.

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

I thought I would start doing a roundup of my top 5 products of each month to share with you all. So here are my top five from January.

Nivea – Powder Touch

I’ve loved this product for a good year and a half. It’s one of those products that I re-purchase time and time again. I originally bought it for using after going to the gym but I loved how it smelt and how it left my underarms feeling I decided that I would use it on an everyday basis.

It’s a very reasonable priced product for what it does and I would highly recommend it if you are wanting an antiperspirant that doesn’t feel like you have to apply more throughout the day!

Curl Jelly by Umberto Giannini

I’ve used this product for a few fair months now and I have to say I love what it does to my hair. I’ve always hated how curly my hair is and I’ve struggled to find a product that enhances my curls in a way that I like. I found this product in Boots when I was with my friend and I thought that I would give it a go. I have to say, I’m so glad that I gave it a chance. I will definitely be re-purchasing this time and time again. It leaves me hair feeling clean and full of life. It’s not too heavy on my hair that it weighs it down but is just enough that the curls fall nicely. I’m so pleased with the way my hair feels already.

Clean & Clear – Blackhead Clearing

I was very unsure about this product at first but after using it persistently I’ve really began to see the effects. I often get quite a few blackheads around my nose area and this product has pretty much cleared them up.

Boots – Tea Tree Witch Hazel with Berry facial Scrub

I’ve been looking for a decent facial scrub for a while now and a friend recommended that I give this one a go. I’m glad that I did because it works so well with my skin.

Reflecting On January.


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?

Things I Do When I’m Feeling Down

The Power Of Positivity


Things I Do When I’m Feeling Down.


Sometimes I have those moments where I feel like the entire world is against me. Nothing I do seems to be right. And nothing seems to lift my mood.

It’s really easy for me to lay in bed and convince myself that it’s best if I hide myself away from the world.

For the past couple of months I’ve been trying to break that cycle. Even if I wake up and don’t feel in the mood to do anything. I force myself to get up and do something, anything.

I often find that once I’m up and doing something my mood automatically lifts. Here is a list of things I do when I’m feeling down.

  • Write In My Journal
  • Read Positive Thoughts From My Positive Jar
  • Paint My Nails
  • Read A Book
  • Go For A Walk
  • Call A Friend
  • Apply Make-up
  • Do Some Baking
  • Do Yoga
  • Take A Bath
  • Watch YouTube
  • Colour in Mindfulness Book

When I’m having a bad day, I tell myself that the mood is only temporary. It will pass and that I will feel better soon.

I’ve found that it’s important to not be too hard on yourself and remind yourself that you’re doing the best you can do. If all you’ve done that day is get out of bed and watched Netflix, that’s better than nothing. You could have just stayed in bed and done nothing at all.

I’ve found that you need to remind yourself of all the positives you have in your life and not focus too much on the negatives.

What do you do when you’re feeling in a low/bad mood?

Thank you for reading. ❤
