Essentials for a Good Nights Sleep ♥

Wednesday, 23 August 2017

There are only a few things in the world that I actually love more than sleep. As a child, most of us hate going to sleep each night, and having to get in bed, but as an adult sleep becomes one of your favourite things, and you look forward to hitting your pillow each evening! I've discussed the topic of sleep previously on my blog, and ways that you can all get a good and easy nights sleep, here, where I mentioned the role that your bedrooms apperance plays in your ease of getting to sleep each evening.

 I don't know about you, but for me, having a homely, peaceful, comfortable and cosy bedroom is essential for a good nights sleep. I like my bedroom to be my little sanctuary, full of my favourite, calming and relaxing things - whether it be duvets, cushions, throws, candles or pretty homeware accessories- you name it, if it helps me get to sleep, and makes me feel relaxed, peaceful and cosy, I've got to have it. Today I thought I'd put together a few of my bedroom essentials for a good nights sleep, to help you all feel bright eyed and bushy tailed! ♥

My Favourite Summer Boho Chic Outfit. ♥

Sunday, 20 August 2017

Despite the fact that the weather has been pretty awful in the UK of late, with an apperance of any warm temperatures looking highly unlikely as September approaches, I've been trying to make the most of any sunshine, by wearing all of my Summery outfits, rocking as many pairs of sunglasses as possible and wearing all the bright make up, before Autumn rolls around again.

I've noticed recently that I always opt for the same sort of style each Summer - my go to look on sunny, summery days has always been a Boho Chic sort of look. For me, Boho Chic just screams all things Summer! Whether it be the festival, Coachella vibes it gives off, or just the generally bright colours, tassels, embroidery, ripped denim, I always feel SO good and confident when rocking a Boho Chic look. I love waving my hair, and feeling free, and I'm forever lusting over the Coachella outfits every year of celebrities that attend the festival. It gives me major FOMO but also major style envy and inspiration.

I was recently contacted by the lovely brand Jules B, who have been discussing the idea of a 2010's Time Capsule - a look back on the fashion trends in the 2010's and what the fashion trend of the 2010's could possibly be. Obviously, decades are defined by their trends, whether it be the Mod vibe of the 60s, the Hippie and Disco trend of the 70s, the 'Casual-Cool' 90's kid trend that rocked the 90s. Fashion trends stick forever but today in the 2010s, they are harder to define than ever as there are just so many influencers and icons out there, and so much choice, with social media playing a HUGE role in what we wear.  I found the idea of the Jules B 2010s Time Capsule, really interesting and it got me thinking about the trends I've followed over the 2010s. If you hadn't guessed already - my favourite and most worn trend by far would have to be the Boho Chic trend.

So to celebrate all things Boho Chic (any excuse!), today I thought I'd share one of my favourite Boho Chic outfits that I've LOVED wearing this Summer with you all - because for me, it is my most favourite and most worn trend of the 2010s. ♥

Things that Suck in Your 20s ♥

Wednesday, 16 August 2017

Being 20 something years of age, is supposed to be the best years of your life: you're supposedly young, free and able to get away with making more mistakes because you've still got so many years left to experience. It's supposed to be the years of being selfish, free, travelling, finding yourself and just living your life like theres no tomorrow. I often hear people say 'Oh the 20s are the best years of your life, make the most of it' or 'I wish I was in my 20s again, you're free, you have no responsibilities' which got me thinking...what is it that's so special about your 20s? Why do people say it's the best years of your life? Don't get me wrong, being youthful is obviously lovely and maybe I will look back on my 20s as the best years of my life when I'm 90, but there are some downfalls to being in your 20s too, so today I thought I'd share the struggles of being a 20 something year old, as honestly sometimes you just cannot win and it can be really hard.

Comparing yourself to other people your age - this is probably one of the worst things about being 20 something. Luckily, I hardly talk to anybody I went to school or college with, but I can imagine if you have Facebook and have constant life updates about what other people your age are up to, it could get you down, making you feel like you're not good enough. So what if they've passed their driving test the 1st time, and you're on your 8th try, so what if they're expecting a little one... it's not a race. Trust the timing of your life. You're doing just fine. ♥

People thinking you should have your career path figured out - it's one of the main topics of conversation when you speak to distant relatives at family functions 'Oh so what are you planning to do next? What career moves are you making right now?' Sorry Brenda, the last time I saw you I was 5, since when did you take such an interest in my life? Honestly, I've spoken to people in their 30's and 40's who still haven't got their career figured out, or know what they want to do with their life. That's totally normal and okay, there is no rush, and you don't have to settle on a definite answer as to what you want to do career wise.

People expecting you to go to university - It's often drilled into you from a young age, that to earn a good salary, and to be stable and successful, you MUST go to university. Let's be real here, you don't have to do anything that won't better your life or you as a person. In my opinion, if something is going to make you miserable and you're only doing it to please other people, what's the point, why put yourself through that? I have plenty of friends that chose not to go to uni and I'm so proud of them for doing what is best for them and not living up to the expectations of society, they earn a good salary, they're stable, they're in jobs they love. Most importantly they're happy! I think uni is a great idea and opens up so many opportunties if you know where you're going, and what you want to do in your life. But it doesn't make somebody a better person because they've gone to uni...nor does it make you happier.
