I’ve become a bit of a beauty fan this year, choosing instead to spend my money on beauty products as opposed to falling into ASOS head first. Don’t get me wrong, I would still quite happily fall into ASOS but in an attempt to be savvier with money I’m trying not to spend my money on clothes that I’ll never wear, I’ve been looking to check out some body care shops for wonder products.
Spring is one of my favourite times of year. I adore the summer months so spring is the perfect warm up and I’m heading to Ibiza at the beginning of April which is the perfect excuse to stock up on some bits and try out some new ones.
The time has come, I’m about to turn another year older. I’m finally saying goodbye to my teenage years and entering the next decade of my life ~ what the actual flippity, flipping hell. I though I’d whip together a wish list of all the things I kinda fancy for my birthday and might treat myself too because it’s my birthday.
It gives me an excuse to trawl the likes of ASOS, Urban Outfitters and Etsy for all the pretty things because I’m a bit of a magpie and like shiny things. Urban Outfitters is probably my favourite shop right now for everything ~ fashion, accessories and interiors and everything in that store sings to me.
Whilst I’m still quite appalling at make-up and in desperate need of a new mascara and foundation, I think I found my feet in the skincare world this year. My skin really played up in the summer due to stress and hormones which had a huge knock on effect to my already unstable confidence.
Which was a real bundle 0f laughs.
I’ve always prided myself on having ‘clear’ skin so having this comfort blanket taken away from me was pretty horrid and having a club of spots on my face was not helping.
I’ve successfully completed the #28DayChallenge which was set by Your Good Skin 28ish days ago, which was all about thinking about your skincare, so can I have a round of applause please and thanks?
When I first wrote about taking them up on this challenge, I admitted that I am a tad awful at sticking with things and I’m dreadfully lazy when it comes to looking after my skin but here we are, 28 days later, on top of it all and moisturising every night.
I’m a bit shit at skincare tbh. I have all the bits and bobs but the minute I sit down in my bed at 8.30pm to tuck into another episode of The Blacklist, it’s a struggle getting back up to brush my teeth let alone mess around with some skincare products for 10 minutes.
And as a result, I’m not overly happy with my skin. I complain about redness all the blinkin’ time and thanks to a horrific breakout I had over the summer, I’ve got quite a few scars from spots as well as new spots popping up all the time. It doesn’t make for a confidence booster. But I know, as long as I sit on my arse about it, nothing is going to happen.
