On my wish list in February

January is over and February is here which means a post about what I want to do in February!


♥On my wish list..♥


  • Go to the gym. I finally found a gym that I can go to! I’m actually going to go there later today and I’ve decided to go there 2 times a week. As mentioned before I don’t have time to do anything else than be at work and travel to work on the days that I work, so going to the gym twice a week so work with my schedule. I’m excited to get stronger, and work on my stamina (which is definitely needed!).
  • Find a planner. I actually bought a really pretty planner the other day but when I got home and looked through it it didn’t have a proper calendar in it?! I was so confused, it looks amazing and have lots of cool sections but no calendar. And I can’t really plan my days without a calendar.. So am back to looking for one!
  • Making a few changes! I’ve been working on a few changes with the blog which will hopefully be revealed in the next few days:)
  • Wishing for warmer weather. It’s honestly been so cold lately so I’ve been wishing for spring to come early for a little while now. Please come soon spring!
  • To pack away my winter clothes. I’m so tired of big winter coats and woollen jumpers now. I want leather jackets and lots of spring colours!
  • And finally, Valentines! My love is out of the country on Valentines and I won’t see home for some time after which sucks. So there will be pizza, ice cream and a movie for me!

Beauty haul




Hello everyone! On payday I did some much needed shopping. In January my bank account has been looking rather skinny after all the holiday festivities so I was extremely excited to do some shopping.



I’ve been wanting to update my skin care routine and products for a little while now. At 25 the skin stops producing collagen and I’m not welcoming wrinkles anytime soon so I want to make sure that my skin is properly hydrated at treated at all times. I’ve been using micellar water since about the summer time and loving it, however, I’ve been noticing that my skin has been quite dry lately and having dry skin and not hydrating properly can lead to premature ageing of the skin which I definitely want to avoid. I got these products from Decleor which I have used before and I had honestly forgot how much I love. They’re so hydrating and gentle on skin and they smell like being in a spa. I have very sensitive skin and it gets red from anything but my skin definitely loves Decleor products because they are so delicate and gentle on skin.




I got this hair oil from  It feels and smells amazing, I’ve been using it after washing my hair and it feels really nice and light weight in my hair, and my dry  hair definitely needs some good oil. It contains three different oils and is free from silicon, definitely recommend this for anyone looking for a new hair oil!




Finally, I got two foundations. I haven’t gotten a new foundation after going to Hawaii in November and as my tanned has now sadly faded I had to get a new one. I ordered these two that have the same sponge application, from Loreal and Lancome. I’ve heard really  good things so I’m excited to try both!

Wellness Wednesday: Don’t set yourself up for failure

It’s the second month of the year! Personally, I feel like January past very slow and I was getting excited for February to get here. No wonder as December is such an eventful month with lots of celebrations, food, gifts and excitement and then comes January and you’re supposed to be a health kick, try new exercise methods and there’s a lack of money due to all the expenses in December. That’s a lot to handle and a lot of changes in a relatively short period of time.




That’s why I wanted to focus on wellbeing specifically for this time of the year. If you live somewhere where it’s cold at this time of the year it can be difficult to be motivated about healthy eating and exercise when you just want to be inside where it’s warm. There’s rarely any sun and, at least here in London, it’s a permanent grey weather that really dampens my mood. For me I don’t like to push myself to do to much, if I try and tackle every single area of my life that needs some attention I’m setting myself up for failure and I’ll feel 100% worse when I’m not performing to my (honestly too high) standard. So this is what I’m trying to do..




Focus on one thing in your life that you want to improve and let the others be. Do you want to exercise more? Learn new recipes? Read more books? Spend more time with your friends? Don’t try and do everything at once! Eventually there will be one thing that you wont have time for and you’ll end up feeling like you have failed when there’s simply not been enough time and life get’s in the way. Try to just focus on one thing. For February, try to focus on one thing that you’ve wanted to try or improve on and let the others go. Eventually you’ll get in to a routine where that one thing you want to improve on gets easier and then you can add something else. For me it’s exercise. I really like to exercise but through various excuses I haven’t done any exercise for the longest time, so I’ve now signed myself up for a gym! I’ve booked a class for Friday and I’m going to aim to go a couple times a week. I’m going to try and focus on just that and not try and be 100% perfect on everything going on in my life, and hopefully when I’ve gotten into a routine with exercise and can add something else in.

Let me know how it goes!
