Treat yourself with wellness

health

I’ve never really heard of botanics, but I’m glad I found it! I went on holiday to Bali recently (a post of my trip will soon be published it’s just a lot of content) and my mate had this lush hydrating spray which contained to rose water. Apparently it cost her £20 and I didn’t fancy paying that much for a mist moisturising product.

I found most of these products ranged in that price bracket but stumbled across this beauty.

Sustainable. Vegan. Organic and cruelty free.

This mist contains rose water which is great because I loved the fragrance and learnt you can use this before you use spf moisturiser it’s a good additional layer, a setting spray after your makeup as well and definitely great to wake your face up in the mornings.

It apparently suits all skin types so hopefully I find this works wonders, I can safely say it’s so refreshing and makes my skin feel satin and not an annoying lingering damp sensation.

It’s been a good minute

Since starting uni my life is trains, essays and a lot of planning a head of schedule so my time on here has been limited.

I have some time tonight and thought why not talk about everything I’m scheduling, yes I know I treat this like a diary but perhaps I can help.

So uni newsdays/ placement is well and truly done so I am reunited with my loved ones, bed and getting on with all my important deadlines ❤️ I’m really going to miss this when I leave.

Talking about the end goals, I am planning well ahead before the big graduation day comes. I can’t tell you how many cv I have sent out to set up a job at the end and I have had some amazing opportunities from some and a recent one lately that I Hope goes well.

As well, planning my trip away with the girls! BALI!!!!!!!! I knew this day would come and I am just unbelievably blessed to have these girls in my life. I can’t wait to live it up in May. A great big hurra when I end uni in May.

I have been pre planning my meals and outfits and saving well ahead of time and the amazing thing is I don’t feel too stressed. At times I need to juggle and it gets hard but who doesn’t love a bit of pressure.

I can safely say I have thoroughly enjoyed the end of my uni journey along with every beautiful thing and everyone who’s been in it.

  • I will be updating you guys on where I have been ordering my latest summer outfits and my tactics to get use out of one item. Sales can only help a girls purse string so far, upcycle is also something I’m really trying to get to grips with as well because it’s just so important! gotta make stuff last and the trick is to make it look different!

Smiling at the future

buddhism, my inspiration

I always say to myself everyday, “I hope my loved ones and myself are happy, safe and healthy” to me those are three most important things in life and the universe has served us well.

2018

  • I was dealt with a lot highs and a lot of lows this year, going into the new year with very little certainty of my future, of the people around me. I felt the biggest blow with my Nan passing, I never predicted it. She was gone and the realisation was frightening but we always knew how loved and how loving she was, she really was amazing❤️

I hit a turning point in my life…

Come March I really found my place.

  • My summer had to be one of the best summers, I met the most amazing people and I am so proud of myself for putting myself out there because I have now found the best people, my life long friends! The love and respect I receive is overwhelming and I couldn’t ask for better people to come into my life.
  • I’ll always remember this year, I found my best friend who is she truly a blessing! Always got my back and I could go on forever but she is everything a gorgeous person and I’m so lucky, future looks good with this kid!

  • I had the most amazing trip to Thailand, I worked so hard for! Getting fit and healthy and has really made an impact on my everyday life!
  • Ben and I had an amazing time and I got to see even more how he is so beautiful inside and out, he will always be so good to me when I need him the most, he makes me feel so special and he is truly one of a kind and such a gorgeous human. I really got to see my future with him this trip and I always consider him as all of me I can see we truly are one

  • I really have flourished in University I’m embracing it like would never imagined. I will be so gutted to finish because my topics of choice are everything to me and I’m really starting to make an impact ready for next year!
  • My 21st birthday, the BEST birthday yet!!!!!! I was so spoilt and I had everyone around me that I love so dearly to which made my birthday, it truly was one I’ll never forget (or remember consider I was so drunk) but I remember half of the night so that counts!

2019

There is so much to look forward too next year, I have so many assignments due which I look forward too I know I’m freak but that’s me ok.

  • Graduation
  • A lush family holiday with Ben and potential holiday on the cards with my g’s
    Just general love laugh play is what I see for myself in 2019!
  • The first year I’m going into with such positivity and lack of dread! There will always be bumps in life its never perfect but when you got the people you know treasure you and support you, it lessers the blow! As long as you and everyone you love is happy, safe and healthy that is what I’ll always prey for.
  • I’m thankful for all the people around me this 2018 going into 2019

    Merry Christmas and happy new year 🥰❤️

    Body analysis

    health

    This time off from university has been amazing, I’ve loved spending time with all of the people I love so much. It’s been one hell of a summer! But with summer closing, it means winter starvation kicks in.

    I did a Body analysis with my Personal trainer today and here are my goals for the month ahead.

    I am 22.3% fat as a whole

    Weighing 118 lbs

    53 kg

    So this is a healthy amount of body fat but the target is…

    to loose to 1.3% body fat in 4 weeks. Which is apparently WAY tougher than loosing a 1lb in weight. Nervous but so excited. One day of a cheat day and I can’t go mad. Thank you mark for letting me have at least a pizza day😇

    This past week has been all about eating dairy and eating bad before my last good byes for a month. Wednesday and Thursday was chippy and Indian day full of coconut and cream and lots of carbs and cheese. Stake night tonight and cheese cake with cream…

    Dieting is mindful control! you must feed good thoughts in order to meet your goals. Dieting is 80% and exercise is 20% a good positive attitude can help you achieve 100%

    Im so excited to start my final year and burn lots of energy whilst dieting, that always helps drop weight!!

    So excited!!

    Let’s do this!!!!

    Plan:

    Use the app tracker

    And drink 1 and half ltr

    Lots of chicken and veg

    Whole grain pasta

    Cheat days – 1 day only

    Moderate in the week:

    Peanut butter!

    Butter

    Fruit intake

    Carb based foods

    Too much milk

    Day 2 of my health and fitness plan

    health, Style

    My motivation today has been my new bikinis! They are so gorgeous and I can’t wait to flaunt them on the beach – summer bod here we come! I bought this set from Shein, an amazing site, and where I bought majority of my holiday clothes, so I can’t wait to show you them as well. But so far so good with my health plan, I have noticed how quick I can bounce back from 1,200 calories to 800/900 calories which is a skill in itself!


    TODAYS MEALS: 

    Today I have been craving for some carbs but all in moderation, I have been using my app yesterday and today to keep track of everything I consume. The app I use is NutraCheck. Its so simple and easy and I just love it, without it, my diet wouldn’t be as carefully monitored, its surprising how some things you believe are healthy when in fact they are not! Always check ingredients!

    I am crazy crazy for these Warbutons seeded protein bagels. So thin for bagels, but omg they are so filling. I also use Whole earth Cashew peanut butter, banana’s and a tiny bit of honey onto to give into my sweet tooth. Mother Nature has made her monthly visit ladies… so I’m calling for any help in the sweet department.
    ——————
    Warbutons seeded bagels 60g
    Rowse Manuka honey 16g
    Whole earth Cashews peanut butter 30g
    Small banana 
    = 472 calories and 57.1g of carbs

    Image – Feast and West Website.

    (The image is not mine, I took it from Feast and West because I again ate my food before I took an image, but the likeness is there.) Yes, I have embellished in more bread, but please don’t point the finger because its hard! I am always on top of how much I am consuming anyways, so one white toast. I would have preferred wholegrain or rye bread but momma bear has gone shopping and I’m too lazy. Mushed up avocado, and a thin later of low fat cream cheese., it’s always better to have fats in your diet and one organic fried egg. My favourite lunch!
    ——————
    white toast 23g slice
    low fat cream cheese 30g
    half Avocado
    fried egg
    = 275 cals and 13.5g of carbs

    My replacement burgers – Spinach and pumpkin quorn burgers are amazing! I just love having these to go, when I am at college or work! They are lovely with a side of vegetables, and I prefer to have them with runny beans. I feel as though one of these is enough because they do the trick!
    ——————–
    Pumpkin and spinach quorn burgers 80g
    runner beans 60g
    = 172 cal and 21g of carbs

    OVERALL = I have had 919 calories, 75% carbs today, so under 100 and I have burnt around 400 calories in the gym!

    Save your wardrobe with Cami’s 

    staples, Style

    When you want to wear a pair of jeans, shorts, pencil, short or long skirts and you’ve worn your favourite tops too many times! Camis are just a life saver girlies. You can’t go wrong with them, affordable and luxurious in silk. You can go looking relaxed and ever so chic at the same time. I love you camis. Try and get a few in different colours because once you wear one you need more and they are so worth getting. I have three in dark purple, lilac/grey and this gorgeous cream and flowery print cami.

    Shopping the staples 

    Shopping bag, Shopping spree, staples, Style

    My latest post on summer obsessions was of course my shopping checklist. Fair to say I nailed it, take a look at my yesterday buys.

    Let’s start off with the hat. This baby has been hiding all the way in Spain and all the way near to the end of my holiday, but now that I have it my bikinis feel complete… Seriously though guys, it’s been a nightmare. My head is just too bloody small!

    These retro/hippie glasses are just everything. I have never been one for rounded glasses due to my slim oval shaped face and mostly because a face map told me to steer away from them, but I like them on! Can’t believe I’ve stayed away all this time. If you have read my summer obssession post, You would know I mentioned cat eye sunglasses instead, But come on…these are so cute!

    The silver tree knecklass is forbidden on my neck until anniversary. Thanks Ben but also, thanks Ben (sad face). I can’t wait to wear the necklace everyday, I have been in need of a intricate styled necklace.

    The thick gold hoops! Yes that was defiantly on the list. There’s nothing really much else to say about them other than they are perfect against everything!

    I have bought many more items especially clothes but they will be coming later for when I head off to Rome! So keep checking in for all the latest trends, tips, and fashion travel diaries.
