AUTUMN CYSTIC ACNE SKINCARE ROUTINE

31 October 2018


It’s autumn, the clocks went back an hour last weekend and today is the last day October, so you could definitely say that we’re slowly getting towards the end of the year. With the season changing, I noticed a massive difference in my skin. My skin started feeling a lot tighter in the beginning of September and I started breaking out again due to uni stress. So in September I started to change up my skincare routine a little bit until I found a routine that would work for my skin, which I think I may have found now.

I like to think that I am very open about my skincare history and I tell a lot of people about my acne in real life and love writing about it on my blog. And cystic acne can truly be the most painful thing to have growing on your face. Cystic acne basically means that your pores get blocked; this causes little infections and inflammations to appear on your skin. I am still quite lucky, as I don’t have cystic acne as bad as some other people do. Nonetheless it still makes me feel insecure seeing an inflamed pimple growing on my face and sometimes it can really hurt and leave behind scars.

TRAVELLING ALONE WITH ANXIETY

29 October 2018


If you follow me on Instagram and have watched my Instagram stories over the last few weeks, then you might have noticed that I was in Sweden last week for the interviews for my dissertation for university. This was my first time flying alone as well as spending a lot of time on my own in a different country. I am quite the anxious person already just by being at home or even when I travel with someone. Since I didn’t know that many people in the two places I went to in Sweden I was on my own quite a lot, which was such a mental challenge for me. Throughout the week I slowly started to notice how I could control my anxiety and thoughts a bit better and what helped me feel less anxious.

MY FAVOURITE PLACES TO SHOP FOR AUTUMN

24 October 2018


Autumn has got to be one of my favourite seasons to shop for. I love buying new beautiful knits, scarves and other cosy stuff like that. While I am getting my autumn wardrobe for this year ready, I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favourite places to shop at. These are just the shops I like to go to whenever I actually go into town and shop for stuff. If I can’t find the stuff I want to buy online, then I am usually off to browse these websites before actually going into town for a little so-called ‘shopping trip’.

HOW I FEEL LESS ANXIOUS

15 October 2018


Happy Monday lovelies! I wanted to write a little post about tips on how I try to feel less anxious. Like I wrote in one of my latest posts, I had felt quite a lot of anxiety during the month of September. Sometimes your mind just tricks you and you start to feel anxious about all sorts of things, even though you are fully aware that there is no reason to be feeling that way. It’s just not something you can stop.

Anxiety and anxiety attacks have been part of my life ever since high school and whenever I go through these phases of feeling anxious there are always a few things I tend to do that help me feel less anxious. I thought I would share some of these things I do, as they might be helpful for those of you who suffer from anxiety, but also to those who do not, as you might be able to help someone in your life who does suffer from anxiety.

MY FAVOURITE AUTUMN WEEKEND ACTIVITIES

12 October 2018



Weekends are my absolute favourite. Saturday and Sunday are the days I usually look forward to most, like most of us, because it usually means I can focus on anything else but uni work. Every weekend is different too, but I thought it would be fun to share what my favourite autumn weekend activities are, just so I can get myself even more pumped for fun autumn activities.

FIVE FAVOURITES OF SEPTEMBER

10 October 2018


Five favourites of September It feels weird to write a post about all the things I have loved during September. We’re only half way through October, but September and beginning university at the beginning of September already feels like an absolute lifetime ago. I don’t what it is about this year but it really is just flying by within the blink of an eye, isn’t it? I always feel like the first few months of the year tend to go a bit slower and then after summer the months just fly by. Before we know it it’s Christmas again! But before I get to excited about all things Christmas, I am going to blog about five things I have loved using/wearing during the month of September.

MY A/W SHOPPING TIPS

8 October 2018


With it being October now, it is also time to slowly start building a autumn/winter wardrobe and like most people, I love going shopping for these A/W 2018-2019 wardrobe staples. Over the years that I have created the ‘wardrobe essentials’ posts on my blog, I have come to quite a few realisations as to how you get the most out of your AW wardrobe essentials. In today’s post I thought it would be fun to share the process I usually go through whenever I go start to go shopping for the new season and my upcoming AW wardrobe essentials post.

First of all I would like to wish you all a happy October! How fast is this year going by? It's just insane, isn't it? I writing down all of my New Year's resolutions for a blog post like it was yesterday! I am super excited about autumn though. It definitely has to be one of my favourite seasons because of the pretty golden, crispy leaves, the hot chocolates and the scarves we're able to wear again.

Anyway, today I wanted to dedicate a little post as to why I have been a bit absent on my blog lately. So in today's post I just wanted to talk you through a few of my life updates, how I have been feeling and what has been on my mind.
