Tips For Getting A Good Night's Sleep

Sleep is seriously important, as I have learned the hard way over the years...If you're a long time follower of my blog you know I'm a little crazy when it comes to overcommitting myself to things.

Currently I work as a marketing manager full time, study my masters full time, run this blog / YT / social platforms and I'm working on some pretty big projects that will be announced shortly. Add to the mix health / fitness, a social life and wanting a little bit of down time...enough sleep is crucial for me to recharge my batteries and keep up such a busy lifestyle.

Despite tiring myself out all day everyday, it can be hard to unwind and relax in the evenings to get some deep sleep. So I thought I would share all the tips and tricks that I have found work for me and you might like to follow if you have trouble getting enough shut eye at night.

3 Subtle Changes That Make Dieting Fun

It’s very hard to get anywhere in fitness without a good diet. What you put in your system is just as important as all those workouts you do. Most people are aware of this, awareness isn’t the problem here. The problem is that loads of us just aren’t motivated to eat properly and follow a healthy diet. Usually, this is simply because a healthy diet doesn’t seem fun.

The thought of eating healthy foods doesn’t exactly fill most people with glee. But, by making just a few subtle changes, you can make your diet fun for once.

So I thought I would run (ha, pun intended) you through the workouts that keep me motivated and entertained to exercise.

What I Eat In A Day - A Healthy Daily Diet

I am all about creating those healthy daily habits inspired by my favourite Aristotle quote "we are what we repeatedly do, excellence then is not an act but a habit".

So I make a conscious effort everyday to do something my future self with thank me for, such as exercise or nourish my body with the right foods.

So obviously every day is slightly different but because I meal prep, a lot of what I eat is pretty consistent throughout the week. Today I'm tracking everything I ate to give you an idea of what my daily diet consists of. This is what I ate today, everything from what I drank to the supplements I took. I eat pretty consistently because I am a huge believer in keeping your metabolism running high at all times, and also I really like to eat.

L'Oreal Colour Riche Delicate Rose Lipstick Collection Review

A little while ago L'Oreal dropped a lipstick and nail polish collection based around a series of celebrities and their perfect pink. 

The theory behind this is that if you identify that you have similar colourings to one of the celebrities, then it's an easy pick of which shade might suit you most. So there's no sitting there trying on 100 different colours but the guess work is taken out for you.

At the very least this is just a gorgeous collection of perfectly pink lipsticks and complimentary nail polishes, seriously some of these shades are so stunning! Read on for details...

Backstage at MBFF 2017 - Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival Brisbane

This year thanks to my friends at Schwarzkopf, I went backstage MBFF to scope out all the latest hair trends to hit the runway.

I loved what I saw! Everywhere I turned; curls, curls guessed it...more curls. What struck me was the perfect balance of loose waves while still maintaining their structure. Definitely a trends to follow this Spring season that perfectly compliments florals and peachy makeup tones.

The fairytale theme this year was exquisitely executed through all aspects of the festival. From glitter tablecloths to place glasses of bubbly and the whimsical purple/aqua lighting theme really set the tone for all the fashion forward designed being displayed.

Napoleon Perdis had the makeup covered and it was all about dewy skin, light eyes and coral lips. Literally my idea of Spring perfection and one I'll be closely following this season.

As for the fashion, there was an amazing mix of stunning ball gowns, asymmetrical swimmers, bohemian chic, futuristic garments and some gorgeous sleepwear fit for a princess.

Some pieces were totally not my style but I want to buy just to sit there and look at because they are pieces of work. Other garments really caught my eye and would look killer while others could be mixed and matched to be more wearable on the daily.

See below for heaps of pics I snapped on the runway and my favourite designs from the festival...
