The ‘perfect body’ is everywhere. Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, hell even walking down the street it’s there in front of you. Buy this perfume, wear these jeans, eat this yogurt, and you’ll look just like a celebrity! There’s no getting away from the fact that the common view of the ideal body is thin; both figuratively and literally.

Everyday Skin Care Routine For Under £22!

Skincare can be expensive, especially with the rise of premium serums and creams hitting the market with eye watering prices (I’m looking at you Liz Earle!). I’m not gonna lie it’s nice to have a premium skin care routine from time to time, I recently used and reviewed Tropic’s ABC Skincare routine kit which you can find HERE. As much as I love ABC, sometimes the bank balance won’t stretch to a routine that costs upwards of £50, so I’ve complied a list of some products that can be used to formulate your own simple skin routine for the fairly reasonable price of £21.76 (from Boots UK). One thing I ought to mention is I formulated this routine with my own sensitive, eczema-prone messy skin in mind, however these products are to my knowledge available for other skin types such as dry or combination skin.

This is something I will most likely cover in a later post but I’m currently on a bit of a weight-loss journey, and going to the gym is obviously a major part of this. But, as a certified couch potato who can barely run 100 feet, it was a bit daunting to say the least! So in this post I’m going to talk about what it was like setting foot in a gym as a ‘non-gym’ person and some tips on how to avoid gym-anxiety.
