💦 Update on @tartecosmetics mermaid skin Hyaluronic H2O Serum and spoiler alert I’m not really feeling it!😔 _____________ A couple of weeks ago, I began including this hyaluronic acid serum in my PM routines. I was experiencing dry patches on my face because of the weather changing hence I needed an extra boost of hydration. The serum sits really well on my skin and absorbs pretty quickly. There’s no sticky residue that I’m always dreading in any serum so that’s a plus. However, on the downside I need to apply a lot of it and when I say a lot that’s at least 5-6 pumps in each use. So, for the price tag at $42, I’d probably run out of this in as little as two weeks. I’ve noticed that it works really great with drink of H2O hydrating boost moisturizer rather than by itself. I have to use the serum, and hydrating boost moisturizer (also from tarte’s skincare line) together to see optimal results. I wish the serum was able to deliver hydrating results by itself. I still wanna give it a another try before really giving up on it, haha! I’ll be back with another update soon for y’all if I keep it or not. ✌🏼 _______________ PS I’m still going strong with @blissworld glycolic resurfacing pads. Seriously, amazing for brightening and toning complexion. And I’m almost finished with @patchology eye gels as well which are perfect to hydrate the under eye area as they help more with that than puffiness for me. . . . . . #organicskincare#organicbeauty#organic#greenbeauty#greenskincare#ecobeauty#agedefying#agebeautifully#sensitiveskincare#skinbarrier#crueltyfreebeauty#cleanbeauty#skincaretips#indiebeauty#beauty #skincareaddict#skincareobssessed#skincaretips#skincareroutine#skincarejunkie##naturalskincare#igbeauty#discoverunder5k#beautybloggers#beautyreviewer#rehydrateyourself#beautycommunity

I love having a sense of community when I work out. It’s not only motivating to see other people working on a healthier version of themselves, but it’s nice to know everyone has their own fitness goals.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ I’m here to gain weight and someone might be there to lose weight. I’ve been open about my fitness goals and not one person has judged me based on my size. Today i was speaking with another member after class and she was so reassuring “yes definitely more healthy fats and protein in your diet!” “You’ve got this! Muscle will come!” ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ So let’s keep lifting each other up regardless of what we look like and what our goals are! Lucky to have awesome trainers like @mitchellbenvie who support me on my fitness journey (next time I’ll catch him when he’s in a less flashy shirt! 🤣) ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ What’s your favourite way to workout?

• I don’t know why I got it into my head that tonight was my last performance of the year when I have definitely committed to singing next Monday night! Regardless, tonight *was* my gospel choir’s last performance of the year, and it was so much fun! We performed at Holy Trinity Church in Aldershot in a service that was open to all, but put on especially for Aldershot FC, who apparently love a good carol service! As always, it was a pleasure to sing as part of @theweycommunitygospelchoir, and such an honour to have a solo, which people seemed to enjoy - I certainly did! I can’t believe I haven’t even been part of this choir for three months - I fell in love with it at my very first rehearsal, and it’s genuinely one of the absolute highlights of my week! Gospel music is so wonderfully uplifting and fun to sing, and the people I have met through the choir are all the sweetest souls! One of the best decisions I’ve ever made has been to join Wey Gospel, and I hope I’ll be part of it for years to come ❤️
When I first started blogging I was told to celebrate every victory so when I hit 500k monthly viewers on Pinterest last week I jumped on Instagram stories to talk all about it because I was so dang excited! That day, I got so many wonderful responses and questions about Pinterest so I decided to write a blog post all about Pinterest! Today’s blog post is all about the steps and missteps I took to hit 500k monthly viewers in under 6 months, link in bio! • Have I worn this faux leather skirt more than once this week? Yes!

Que desintoxicação nestes últimos meses! Nem sabem o quão bom me fez estar longe das redes sociais e sem sentir aquela "pressão" todos os dias. Aconteceram coisas excelentes que nunca mais me vou esquecer, como aconteceram coisas que vão deixar sempre uma enorme dor e saudade. Quero que desta seja finalmente um regresso, estou a precisar realmente disto ❤️ Senti tantas saudades vossas pá 😍😍😘
When I was a kid I was so shy I walked around with my head on my shoulder and refused to talk to anyone that wasn’t in my immediate family. Doctors thought something was wrong with me. As I got older I got a little bit better, waitressing helped that tremendously but I still feel socially awkward in most situations. ➖ I would have NEVER thought in a million years I’d be sharing my life for anyone to read and making friends with strangers on the internet!! No way in hell would I think that this is the route my life would have taken. But that’s what makes life fun! It’s unpredictable and with every passing day you have the ability to change the way it is written. ➖ I’m far from the social butterfly but I’m definitely coming out of my shell! ... butterflies don’t have shells, there’s got to be a better word there ; coming out of my cacoon!? That doesn’t have the same flow... shell it is, sticking with that!
Hello friends 💁🏼♀️ last night I was wrapping Christmas presents and there were two that I had already wrapped in paper that I had from last year and I unwrapped and completely rewrapped them because they didn’t match my wrapping for this year 🤦🏼♀️😂 I love when everything looks good and matches under the tree! Is anyone else like this?
Today was hard. . I woke up feeling like I got an instant cold overnight. Sore throat, runny nose, congestion, headache, drowsiness - the works. No matter how much tea, hot lemon water, and cold medicine I had, it seemed to only get worse as the day went on. On top of this, my new found cold only made juggling deadlines for work that much harder. . I found a little light in the darkness after I was able to nap - waking up feeling better. Not 100%, but good enough that I thought I would go to the gym. I just wanted to walk on the treadmill, stretch, and sit in the sauna. I did make it to the gym. I was on the treadmill for 20 (long) minutes as I felt my cold coming back on stronger than before. I figured I’d go in the sauna to “sweat it out” until I realized I didn’t have my change of shoes (Sauna Rule 1: no gym shoes in the sauna, only sandals 🙄). No sauna for me. . I left the gym feeling worse than I have all day, and as I sit here and type this I’m drinking theraflu to try and ease my symptoms. All this on top of the fact that the past few days I haven’t been in a very good headspace. . This may seem minimal to some, and that’s okay - I know others out there are dealing with far greater difficulties than I am. I just want you to know that it’s okay to have off days. It’s okay to take a sick day. It’s okay to not feel like yourself. It’s okay to struggle. You are NOT alone. . Thank God for all of the good things you do have. Thank God for your life. May you find strength knowing he and others are there for you. Remember - you are NOT alone.
