Looking After Your Skin In Winter

The winter weather has a lot to answer for. Our central heating bills rise, we say goodbye to our lovely summer wardrobe, and most of us end up catching the dreaded flu. If that wasn’t bad enough, the cold weather is also responsible for making our skin dry, flaky and itchy. The harsh temperatures and blustering winds certainly like to do their damage on our complexion.  If this sounds familiar, use the following tips to ensure your skin looks radiant come rain, snow or sleet!

How to Lose Weight the Healthy Way

With the number of obese and overweight people getting to an unbelievable peak around the world, what cannot help but wonder what we all are doing to stay healthy, or should I say, what aren’t we doing to stay healthy. 

This scary phenomenon has given rise to the thoughts on how to lose weight and maintain a healthy and fit shape. While some are taken advantage of this circumstance (wrongfully so), there are lots of theories and diets on how to lose weight. But you will agree that most of these diets and theories are pure lies.

Anyways, I’m not about to add to these theories and lies but to give you a trusted way to lose weight and stay healthy.

Books I’ve Read Lately #8 - 40 in 2019 Challenge

Welcome to the first ‘Books I’ve Read Lately’ for 2019! I’m wrapping up the last 4 books I read in 2018! 

One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to read 40 books this year, upping the ante from my goal last year of 30! It’s certainly not just about the number of books but rather the quality they add to my life but I like to keep myself accountable with measurable goals and 40 seems like a nice step up from last year.

I love this series because not only do I get to share with you my thoughts on each book but I also include key takeaways so that you understand the main concepts to determine whether you would enjoy reading it also. Without further ado let’s get into the last 4 books I read in 2018..

How To Make 2019 Your Best Year Yet!

New year! Who dis? I know saying things like ‘this is my year’ is almost as cliché as ‘new year, new me!’. 

However, I am a big believer in making each year better than the previous one and this is entirely possible considering we are constantly evolving and learning.

I’m always looking to become a better version of myself and a new year is always the perfect opportunity to set goals, kick any bad habits, implement good routines etc. The clean slate is there for everyone and a lot of us choose to use it as an opportunity for a fresh start.

Here is how you can make 2019 your best year yet!

If you are struggling with setting goals or making SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and time-bound) resolutions then you should head over and give it a read HERE.

If you’re looking for some resolution inspiration and interested in what I have in store for 2019 then keep on reading. I am SO SO excited and motivated about all of my goals. I’m chomping at the bit to get a start on them!

4 Exercises That You Can Do At Home

Even in summer, we can all be a bit slack when it comes to going to the gym. 

Ok, I booked to go to a 7am class on Mondays, but do I really have to get up that early when I could just sleep instead? On top of this, you have to make yourself look gym-appropriate (that is, not like you’ve unwillingly been dragged out of bed at 7am in the morning) and you have to drive or get the subway all the way there and back, usually before work. It’s too stressful, we think, especially when winter comes around, so we’ve put together some tips for working out at home. Ciao, gym classes!

Life Highlights from 2018

I need to stop living life like I read books – quickly turning to the next page in anticipation and speed reading through the action-packed parts. If you keeping flipping to the next chapter you might find yourself finished the book so focus on soaking up each and every moment instead of wanting to fast-forward everything....

At least that is the advice I am currently giving to myself. It is also the reason why I decided to reflect on this year and compile a list of highlights to appreciate. I honestly did not realise what a jam-packed and achievement filled year 2018 was for me until I sat down and put everything on paper so I would highly recommend for you to do this as a little activity to wrap up 2018. I had some of the proudest moments of my life this year! Let’s get into them…
