Over the past two months, I have had a nightmare with my skin. I can honestly say, I don’t wish this upon anyone but my skin was so dry and sensitive. My skin was dry, patchy and flaky, especially around my nose, chin and forehead. Though my lips were the worst. They were cracking and peeling and kept bleeding all the time. They were so sore, my lips constantly felt like they were on fire; they were burning.
You cannot generalize women. This Christmas I’ve decided to show that the majority of Christmas gift guides for her (women/girls) are stereotypical. Not all females like the same things, we all have different likes and interests.
My sister, cousin and I, were all brought up very closely yet we are all completely different. In this post I will show you my Christmas list and then over the next few posts I’ll show you theirs.
When I heard that the lovely Katie was organising a blogger event for the new Kiehl’s Cardiff store, I knew I had to go! Kiehl’s has always been a brand I have been longing to try but never had the chance to as there were no counters near where I live. I’d continuously hear the songs and praises from people using their products and was really intrigued to learn what knowledge of skincare they had.
This quote is so true about life. You are always going to have ups and downs, but you have just got to learn how to cope with them. One minute I am on a high, loving life and the next I am crashing down and comfort eating. I am trying to learn how to deal with life’s roller-coaster and it’s not easy.
Over the past few months I have been making quite a few purchases in the beauty department. I have been loving just having a browse around the shops and picking up new and interesting pieces I haven’t seen before.
On Thursday I was lucky enough to attend Lush Swansea’s first blogger event! The event was based around the new Christmas collection and I got to experience it all with the blogging babes; Neesha, Ffion, Charlee and Holly, as well as new blogger Leanne and even Johny came too, now that he is addicted to Lush. I also got to have a quick catch up with Katie, who I hadn’t seen properly for 3 years, so that was nice.
Johny and I decided to go on a weekend away to the Isle of Wight and we had a lovely time exploring the island.
We made our way bright and early on Friday morning and traveled down to Southampton where we were catching the ferry from. We made good timing and were soon on the boat , making our way across the sea to the Island.
The first month in college has gone by in a whirlwind and it’s been absolutely AMAZING. Initially, the first couple of days seemed quite disorganized. There were a lot of room changes, swapping of students and tutors and loads of form filling. Eventually things settled down and we were soon full swing into all the topics. It is very very intense. Studying lots of new subjects is very daunting and there are a lot of technical terms to learn.
