The ‘perfect body’ is everywhere. Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, hell even walking down the street it’s there in front of you. Buy this perfume, wear these jeans, eat this yogurt, and you’ll look just like a celebrity! There’s no getting away from the fact that the common view of the ideal body is thin; both figuratively and literally.

Everyday Skin Care Routine For Under £22!

Skincare can be expensive, especially with the rise of premium serums and creams hitting the market with eye watering prices (I’m looking at you Liz Earle!). I’m not gonna lie it’s nice to have a premium skin care routine from time to time, I recently used and reviewed Tropic’s ABC Skincare routine kit which you can find HERE. As much as I love ABC, sometimes the bank balance won’t stretch to a routine that costs upwards of £50, so I’ve complied a list of some products that can be used to formulate your own simple skin routine for the fairly reasonable price of £21.76 (from Boots UK). One thing I ought to mention is I formulated this routine with my own sensitive, eczema-prone messy skin in mind, however these products are to my knowledge available for other skin types such as dry or combination skin.

What It’s Like Going to the Gym as a Certified Couch Potato + Gym Anxiety Tips

Most women in their early 20’s have set foot in a gym. Whether it’s purely for fun or to try to lose some weight. My reason is the latter. This is something I will most likely cover in a later post but I’m currently on a bit of a weight-loss journey, and going to the gym is obviously a major part of this. But, as a certified couch potato who can barely run 100 feet, it was a bit daunting to say the least! So in this post I’m going to talk about what it was like setting foot in a gym as a ‘non-gym’ person and some tips on how to avoid gym-anxiety.

How to Maintain a Work-Life Balance Whilst at University

It’s about mid-way through April, and if you’re at university, that means it’s time to revise for exam season. It’s that lovely time of year when the weather is gorgeous but your stuck inside the library hating yourself and your degree. So. For this post I thought I’d stray away from my usual content and post some tips on how to maintain a decent work-life balance whilst studying at university. This is more to give myself a kick up the backside and start properly revising but hopefully it will help you too, student or otherwise!

Amsterdam 2019 + Look Book!

So last week I took a quick trip to Amsterdam with my parents as a late 21st birthday present. Since everything can be #content I thought I’d create a mini look book whilst I was there and blog a bit about what I got up to, enjoy! All outfits will be linked below if you’re interested, either the exact item or something similar.

Tropic Spring Product Launch

On Friday evening I was invited to the Tropic skin care spring product launch, run by ambassadors Jess and Seb. The evening was lovely and it was a great opportunity to see and try out the products first hand, as well as learn more about the products themselves and the Tropic company from the ambassadors. So for this week’s post I thought I’d write a little about what it was like attending this sort of event and some of the products on offer; let’s get into it.
