The Power of Selling

The Power of Selling

So before I got my current job in a fancy insurance company I worked in retail. As one of my colleagues once said, “You could sell sand to an Arab”. You would presume this means that I am wise to the ways of sales assistants […]

June: Tried & Tested

June: Tried & Tested

Hey Guys!
I know, I know. It’s been a while. But believe me when I say I have been struggling going from not working and working three to four days a week to working  a roper adult job. It’s been a few months now and I think I have finally gotten into a routine and am getting back into my favourite past times: READING AND BLOGGING.
I have also gotten back into my healthy living so I am very happy with that. It is amazing how much better you can feel if you cut the shit out of your daily routine. Don’t worry though. I’m not cutting myself off completely. As I write this I am snacking away on some Watermelon Chunks… They are v. yummy. 

Today is the first installment of a new monthly feature I hope to run, called Tried and Tested. Whilst I am not very adventurous I do love to try new things, so this is my monthly feature to let you know how I get on. My June feature is quite short, but you can expect a much longer one in a few weeks for July.

This month I have been trying out a Nourish Starter Kit for combination skin which was sent to my by The Liv House. I have been using these products for about two, almost three weeks now and I have to say the difference in my skin has been amazing. I think I have finally found products suited to my terrible skin. The ingredients are organic, in fact the bottles list a percentage of how organic the creams are and they are all past 80% some being 97% which is always good to hear. They are also full of vitamins and antioxidants which have been both regulating and oxygenating my skin. My skin has been glowing since I started using the products and make up has looked flawless on my skin, meaning I am getting the best value out of my make up. I stopped using the Kit to test out a new moisturiser, which is great don’t get me wrong, but I will be straight back to my Nourish Kit ASAP. I need that healthy glowy skin again. It was so good that whilst I was in Manchester (more about that in this weekend’s post) I was able to go out with virtually no make up on. Just some concealer for my spots, mascara and eyebrow gel. It was a delight to say the least, especially on those hot days.

I have also been trying to eat breakfast more. Whether it was a bowl of cereal or a yoghurt. This, teamed with some nuts or a cereal bar, has kept me going until lunch time and has given me so much energy. I also have made it a habit so I’ll be keeping this up no doubt.

SWIMMING, I tried getting back into swimming. While I have been a bit bad with it over the past two weeks due to being away. I went back yesterday and went at least twice every other week. I don’t know if it has done me much good but it makes me feel like I’ve made an effort so that is good enough for me.

That’s all I have for you folks.

I’ll post again on Saturday to tell you about my trip to the english countryside. 

Until then,
I’m off to eat my Watermelon Chunks and watch True Blood and Pretty Little Liars.
