Despite swearing by a handful of drugstore skincare products for over two years, the last few months have seen me switch-up my daily routine multiple times in search of a solution for my grumpy, winter skin. I’ve been moaning about spots and dry skin despite following all the skincare golden rules (drink enough water, get enough sleep, skip the make-up… you know the drill) so I decided it was about time that I turned to some new products. I’m really happy with how this trio of products have been helping me out recently.
I can’t stop dreaming of going shopping. Like actual, feel the fabric and try stuff on shopping. Maybe it’s the endless hours I’ve spent at my laptop reading strategy textbooks that have me fantasising of real-life interactions and a chance to wander around shops guilt-free. As a consolation, my revision breaks consist of online shopping or more specifically, scrolling the pages of ASOS in search of my latest fashion obsession: a suede biker jacket.
I’ve always held the idea of practicing yoga in high regard, with massive respect to those who power through hours of balance, stretching and movement. In 2016 I got the yoga bug and began discovering the far-reaching benefits for myself. Hey, I even got my own yoga mat!
Skin Health Spa kindly invited me along to their Manchester clinic this week to experience their latest Oxygen Facial, as the perfect pre-christmas treat. My visit left me feeling truly pampered and relaxed, as well as inspired to step-up my current skincare routine.
A new clothing brand on the scene always gets me excited, especially when I get the opportunity to find out more at a Christmas themed launch (complete with mulled wine and cupcakes, may I add). Joanie Clothing were the hosts of the evening and I was invited along to find out more about their ultra feminine and playful brand that puts a vintage twist on the modern wardrobe. (more…)
Vapiano in Manchester’s corn exchange is a self-serve restaurant that hosts the perfect combination of classic Italian food and a chilled-out vibe. We were given the opportunity to take our first visit to the restaurant and try out their brand new vegan specials menu. Verdict? Pleasantly surprised.
Despite the rainy start to the day, a good ol’ Sunday brunch put a smile on our faces this morning. We headed out to Solomon’s, a quirky bar/ cafe, to finally check out their brunch menu and hide away from our long to-do list of coursework and cleaning for a couple more hours.
Changing perceptions of protein for women and understanding it’s power to help us achieve our goals is the driving force behind My Protein’s latest launch. The ‘Active Women’ range is a combination of protein based blends, supplements and snacks formulated specifically to support us females with our muscle development *insert bicep emoji*. I went along to their launch party to hear about and, more importantly, taste test the products.
Over the summer months ‘glowing skin’ is a massive buzzword in the beauty world but keeping that summer-glow when the days turn colder is just as important. I’ve loved adding this trio of products to my collection recently, as each of them work together to help your skin look and feel great. When the long days of summer sun feel like a distant memory, you need to try out these three simple steps to revive a glowing complexion.
