School finishes this week! I hope you've all had a great year :)
As for me, I haven't had the best year....
Of course there has been good times, but I feel like it has jus gone on for so long, and I've made so many mistakes.
But every cloud has a silver lining, and hopefully I will be able to learn from this year, and make next year a better one.
I want to try and start to change my life up a bit, to be happier, and healthier too. As I've kind of lost any motivation. And I want to be more organised for next year before school things become more serious.
So I thought I would share what I am going to be doing, and what I have been doing for the last few days to make myself feel better. In doing a bit more excersise (I currently can't run 5 minutes without becoming out of breath hahaha),keeping things more organised and under control (school work, tidying ), eating a little bit healthier (chocolate is most definitely my downfall!) and looking after myself (skincare, and giving myself time to breath).
I am also going to be trying to do a lot more creative things this summer, because thats really what I enjoy, and I would love to practice photography and painting before my courses this september. And because I will have so much spare time, I've set myself the challenge of re-reading the whole Harry Potter series!
Once I have woken up in the morning, and checked social media and listened to a chorus of birds outside my window, I put on my dressing gown and cosiest slippers and trail downstairs to get some breakfast.
I have recently really enjoyed having greek yogurt and honey with strawberries, and is probably a favourite breakfast, and also alphabets cocoa cereal with almond milk and berries. These are both quite healthy and delicious!
If I have the time I also like to make a smoothie, this morning I made myself and my mum a banana, blueberry, and raspberry smoothie with I made with orange juice and just put into a blender. But I also use mixed frozen fruits a lot and just blend with a fruit juice. It is also quite a lot easier as frozen berries don't go off so quickly and you can get the fruits all year round.
Then I either sit down with my family and eat breakfast, or if they aren't up yet, I go back upstairs and have breakfast in bed whilst watching youtube or netflix. I then go back downstairs and if it's sunny, go into my garden and do a little bit of gentle exercise. I love hoola-hooping especially!
I then have a shower, brush my teeth, and do my skincare routine which I am really happy with at the moment. I am using the 'simple kind to skin moisturising face wash' which I feel like along side a few no makeup days and fresh air, has really helped my skin. Then I use the 'clinique spot remover gel' on a few blemishes which stings like hell, but seems to do the job. Then I use the 'clinique moisture surge' and 'super defence spf', but I'm looking for a new moisturiser, preferably with spf, so if any of you have one to recommend please leave a suggestion in the comments.I then do my make up. And my make up routine has changed up a bit recently so I might do another blog post about that soon if you would like.
Then I get changed, and this can take me a while and I come up with some really tragic outfits. But when I decide on one I like, I get changed and go out for my day.
I hope this has been useful in some way! Thank you for all your support as always.
Happy summer! Zx
