Inspired by Rebecca, author of From Roses and her anti-haul posts, I thought I would write a post along the same vein on the products that I am going to stop wasting my money on. I recently had a massive wardrobe clear out, and I was actually embarrassed on how many clothes I had jam-packed into my wardrobe that I didn't even wear. I was absolutely ruthless and probably ended up getting rid of over half of my wardrobe and subsequently donating it to The British Heart Foundation. They were so incredibly grateful and it felt like a weight had been lifted. I want to slowly make the transition to a capsule wardrobe because from the research I have done, they seem like such a good way to look at buying clothes. But that is a post for another day! I also got rid of a fair bit of out of date make up, skincare and body products. Today I am going to talk about the products that I have bought and unfortunately ended up being a waste of my money. That is not to say they are bad products by any stretch, but they are just things that didn't work for me and by buying them I have learnt where to put my pennies and where not to.

Like everyone, I have had a fair few hurdles thrown at me over the years and really, what helped me the most, was to write it all down.
I don't know about you, but I find the idea of sitting down with a therapist or counsellor incredibly intimidating. That is not to say that the person themselves has ever made me feel that way, or i have heard a horror story or two, it's just something I have created in my head that has always put me off the idea. That, paired with ever-lengthening NHS waiting times and the already sky-high costs of going privately; it has just never felt like an avenue I thought was right for me or particularly accessible either.
And then in came blogging.Read More
I am and always have been a massive book worm, so subsequently, I have a to-be-read pile as long as my arm! I find summer is the time where I can really indulge in new authors, genres and releases because it doesn't interfere with my uni studies where the recommended reading seems to grow by the day. I honestly love nothing more then perusing the shelves of Waterstones, charity shops and independent book shops even though I already have so many books i am yet to sink my teeth into; what can I say? I am a sucker for a good story! Today I am going to be sharing with you what is on my summer reading list, and who knows, you might find something new along the way! So, without further ado...Read More
Initially, I had this post drafted and ready to go on the first of January but for one reason and another I didn't hit post. But here we are now, on the first of April, my blog has had a much needed refresh and I have dusted off my keyboard ready to get back into the swing of things.
I want to get back into the world of beauty, my roots if you will. But I also want to dabble in the world of book blogging and giving you guys a nosey around my house because decorating it has been something I have really enjoyed doing.
So thank you for bearing with me and keep your eyes peeled for some fresh content!
