What’s the first thing you think when you hear those words? I can almost guarantee that you immediately associate it with girls, myself included, but I can also assure you that it’s a problem for men too.
As someone that is constantly being told “You’re too skinny”, “Put on some weight” and “You’re just skin and bone”, it resonates right to my core when somebody says that body shaming doesn’t happen to men. Saying these comments might seem a little light-hearted and in good faith, but it’s truly amazing how much it has affected how I see myself.
It’s that time of year again – the day that singletons dread, the day that makes you want to avoid all social media, the day of the “boy/girl did good”s. But no fear, whether you’re buying for a significant other, a family member, or even yourself (go on, you know you want to), these gifts will suffice.
You know those times when people tell you to stop trying and you will never be disappointed? Well, that’s exactly that mantra that I’ve been living with at the moment and I honestly think I am a better person for doing so!
I am a firm believer in the proverb “Everything happens for a reason“, so learning to let go of the pressure and just get on with it has become something of the norm to me! I think by letting things go their own way is one of the most easy ways to live, letting nature take it’s course and leave life’s decisions down to fate.
It seems that every single week I am searching for something new to add to my grooming routine; whether it be tackling my sensitive skin, battling with my un-stylable hair or updating my aftershave pile, I am often surprised (and super delighted) when I find something that actually does good things.
This time around, I stumbled upon the Black Charcoal Wash “Magnetic Wash” from L’Oreal Men Expert which has completely revolutionised my grooming process in the morning – cutting it down half the time.
Instagram is, arguably, the best social media outlet that we have in our lives and I’m sure most of us spend countless hours on the app. Whether it’s scrolling through endless blogger’s wardrobes, dreaming of perfect holidays or compiling a list of your top 10 favourite dogs, it undoubtedly eats away at the hours in our day.
I for one cannot get enough and I always find myself still scrolling at 1am wondering where on Earth the time went. So that’s why I’ve decided to bring you a list of my favourite accounts to follow, spread the love and encourage a conversation – because we all know that the latest Instagram update has taken a beating on our engagement.
Hello, hi, good day, happy Autumn (aka the best season ever!)
I’ve been a bit MIA lately; going on holiday, getting a job promotion and generally just loving life so my blog has been a bit neglected.
But now it’s getting colder and I’m having to spend more & more of my time inside, I can get right back on with bringing you my favourites. This latest instalment is a Autumnal version of my previous post 5 products I swear by. So let’s get right into it.
Over the past few weeks, I have become absolutely obsessed with my grooming regime and it’s something that I now take complete pride of – telling everybody of the products I’m using, what I’m doing and how long it takes (I’m not afraid to admit that I take almost an hour to get sorted in the morning!)
If you’re like me, and you’re constantly on the lookout for the latest products to put to the test and see if they live up to their reputation, then this newest find from Clinique* is definitely one that needs to be added to your morning routine.
Days after writing my 5 beauty products that I live by post, I discovered the amazing Lab Series from House of Fraser and two products in particular took my fancy so much that I needed to share it with you!
If, like me, you’re prone to sensitive skin and need something to take the edge off when shaving, after exercising or simply just waking up in the morning, then these two products will work a treat.
Unlike the name suggests, Exante Diet is far from a range that helps you lose weight. Ever since I starting running (oh yeah, I run now! – more about that later on), I’ve been looking at ways to get the added protein into my body to help me with my stamina, strength and overall performance.
Then, a sample of the range* showed up on my doorstep and all of my prayers had been answered. It included meals, snacks and drinks that are perfect for helping with any sort performance whatsoever, whether it’s training, a sport you do or just for getting fitter in everyday life.
And it’s time to step up our beauty regime to make us presentable for the world – especially because it’s now getting sunnier and we are beginning to venture outside more.
I’ve got a few products that I swear by (I use most of them every single day) which is the reason I look so flawless – no, I’m joking but I do recommend them if you want to keep your hair/face/body in top form.
