The Secret To Cherishing Every Day

Picture Source
Everybody has bad days.
Maybe you’ll experience an unfortunate string of events, or maybe stress and anxiety will ruin what could have been a great day. Life is a series of ups and downs, but that’s what makes it so fantastic. Sometimes, we need to experience bad things to appreciate the good things.
Of course, if you’re struggling to find a sense of peace and calm then you might want to approach life in a different way.

Here are the secrets to cherishing every day...

Statement Made Jewellery*

Towards the end of last month, I was contacted by the lovely team at Statement Made Jewellery, who had come across my page on Twitter and wondered whether they would be able to gift me a personalised necklace in exchange for a review. I, of course, jumped at the chance once I made a visit to their cute, girly website and that's what today's post is going to be all about.

I'm Not Your Average 17 Year Old

I'm not your average 17 year old. Some people may have differing opinions on what the term 'average' means, so let me give you a brief overview of what it means to me.

Don't Stop Thinking About Tomorrow: A Book Review*

Usually when I get a new book to read, it can take me quite a while to get into it and connect with the characters. However, as soon as I received Siobhan Curham's new novel in the post, I could tell that I was going to be turning the pages like crazy, because it has the sort of storyline that grips you right from the start.

All Of The Happy News

Whenever you turn on the news or scroll through your social media, it's becoming increasingly more common for your eyes and your mind to be plagued with all of the devastation that is currently happening around the world. Constant kidnappings, shootings, stabbings, never-ending wars - the list keeps going on.

Top Tips To Managing Travel Anxiety

From what I’ve seen and heard, I think it’s pretty safe to say that the whole process of flying can provoke quite a lot of anxiety for a large number of us. It’s not necessarily always put me off, but throughout my teenage years in particular, I’ve really noticed the impact that it can have on my mental health.

I went on holiday to Nice in the South of France for a couple of days at the end of July (as you will know if you have read this post) and leading up to the day of travelling, I watched a couple of YouTube videos on how to ‘get over’ my fear of flying. I’ve saved them into a self-help playlist and so I thought it would be a great opportunity to share some of the tips that I picked up, because after all, August is the main month of sunny Summer holidays!

The Power Of Plants: A Skincare Review

Throughout my teenage years, I have constantly been trying out new skincare products in the hope of one day perfecting a proper regime. I've dabbled through phases whereby I've stuck to a list of certain favourites, but they lasted no longer than a few weeks and then I was straight back into washing my face with any old cleanser.

Quite a while ago, I purchased these 2 organic newbies from Boots, having seen bloggers going wild for the brand Botanics (you can tell this was definitely a while ago - oops!). I'm all for making the transition to cruelty-free beauty and I'm hoping that as time goes on, I will eventually succeed in that quest. Whilst everyone and their cute, fluffy puppy was talking about the brand's revamp, I decided that it was only right for me to jump on the bandwagon and see which 1 of the 4 ranges floated my boat the most.

A Short Stay In The South Of France

This time last week, my Aunt, Uncle, Sister and I were on our way back home from a magical few days in Nice. As with most things in my life, I wanted to share the memories we made with all of you who read my blog and for myself to look back on in the future, so here goes...
