Skin care tips

I get really bad skin from time to time but I always do my best to keep my skin the the best condition possible and most of the time my skin is usually quite clear and good so I thought I would share my routine and top tips with you.

1. Sudocrem's your best friend if you have spots!
When I get  a sport the first thing I do is run to the bathroom cupboard and whack on some cream, if you don't have any sudocrem then toothpaste is your next best product as they have some of the same ingredients in which are really good for getting sports better.

2. Take off your make up!
Wearing make up is good and nice when you go out and stuff but what a lot of people don't do is when they go to the gym or do exercise is take their make up off! When you sweat doing exercise your pores open up and your make up goes in which clogs them up and that can cause blemishes and spots. Another time you should take your make up off is when you are going to sleep, for a lot of people this is normal and what you would normally do but I know a lot of people that never ever take their make up off when they go to sleep. When I take my make up off I use the Tesco home brand cleansing facial wipes and I really like them.

3. Keep your face clean
I feel like this should be one you do anyway but to have an extra clean face in the evening I wash my face but only gently rinse the flannel and while my face is still wet I put on some of the Simple Facial wash, I massage it into my skin and then wash it off with the flannel and pat dry my face. I then once I have a dry face again moisture with the simple light moisturiser which is so gentle on my skin but makes it so healthy and smooth.

4. Water is the best thing for your skin
Although you won't notice a immediate difference water is so good and hydrating for your skin. Water makes your skin more glowy and in the summer will help you get a better tan.

5. Fake tan isn't all bad
So many people are scared of using fake tan on your face as there are so many thing that can and frequently do go wrong, I find that I'm better off using a tinted moisturiser or a sleep mask. A tinted moisturizer will only make you slightly more tanned which you can then build up to a more solid colour and you get to chose how tanned you would like to go, if it did go slightly blotchy you wouldn't notice it as bad as the colour isn't quite as bold. I use the James Read sleep mask tan and I love it.

6. Sleep
Sleep is so good for you, the bags under your eyes may be gucci but their still not worth having, so hit the sack a bit earlier when you can.

7. Stop touching your face
Obviously there there are times when you need to touch your face, but other than that don't touch your face, that means no picking, no scratching, so transferring germs from your hands to your face.

Big City Adventure!

Throwing it all the way back to boxing day but rather then spending the week after christmas at home doing nothing, this year myself and my family decided to fly out to Chicago and stay in a hotel for a few days and be proper tourists around the big city. I stayed at the Sheraton Grand hotel which is quite central in the city your not in manic rush of the magnificent mile which is just a mile long road of shops which is spent probably too much money in but you have everything around you like restaurants slightly less busy shops, Starbucks (on every street corner).
I was my first time in Chicago and it did not disappoint. We were only there for seven days so we packed everyday full of fun and sight seeing including Ice skating, John Green aquarium and we went up the 360 Chicago building which is the second highest building in Chicago ad myself and my Dad did the tilt. The tilt for those who don't know, is where you stand up against a panel of glass facing out of the building and t…

November Favorites

This is my November favourites its actually quite a short one this month but I guess I have been using my normal products and stuff but these thing I have been loving on another level!!!

Avon Nail varnish So it's almost Christmas and I think this nail varnish is very festive and sparkly without being too much considering it's not even December yet. It's from Avon and I bought this nail varnish roughly this time last year but I feel like I have rediscovered this product and I am constantly wearing it right now. It is made up of lots of glitter in silver, gold and black, together they make such a nice shimmery colour. They do still sell this at Avon for £3.00 however they changed the names and shades slightly but I love all of them and I think I might have to purchase some more.

T Mug This past month I have been loving this mug, it has a T on it for my name and I've been enjoying tea and hot chocolate out of it. I'm not sure where it came from as it was a present from…

Christmas Throwback

So I have gone through Facebook and all the laptops in the house to look for all our old christmas December photos with a Christmas theme so here are the findings. Looking at these pictures have really made me smile, we did have some more but I just can't find them.

This is super bad quality but I think was two years ago at Broadditch farm when we went to buy a tree, we had a look round the shop and myself and my mum decided that we wanted to take a selfie in these super cool glasses.

This is 2012 when we decorated the living room and bought new decorations, I love this picture it makes me feel so cosy.
I love this collage I made two years ago I think and Cooper my dog was being super cute and he got lots of presents on Christmas day.
This is in 2011 and we had snow in December but not christmas day. This was like the beginning of December and we went to a winter wonderland somewhere and they had like a little zoo bit then we went and bought ice cream. Also I am now realizing how…
