Taking a break from it all

Recently I headed home from Manchester and went back to my family (and cats) for a lovely, much needed week of peace and quiet. I've been having loads of problems with noisy neighbours for the past few weeks, so lack of sleep and a huge amount of stress over an important uni deadline were really getting to me and I knew I just needed to go and clear my head - as well as needing a bit of silence to be able to get my work done! Whilst I was home I made the most of our pretty surroundings and went on a few long walks, even getting up early one morning to go and picture the birds.

Murad Essential-C Cleanser

I've been using this Murad cleanser for a few weeks now and I'm loving it so much that I just had to give it a mention on here! The cleanser is part of their Environmental Shield range which aims to prevent and reverse damage like hyperpigmentation, sun damage and even age spots (which I don't think I need to worry about just yet!) This specific product works by removing impurities and restoring moisture to the skin, with the help of Vitamins A, C and E.

Lush Sea Spray Hair Mist

After kindly receiving this sea spray at Christmas it has become a firm favourite of mine and I absolutely love using it to freshen up my hair! First of all, the product is both cruelty free and vegan friendly so those who don't support animal testing can enjoy a totally clear conscience when purchasing this. I absolutely love Lush as a brand in terms of their ethics and I know that I can always count on them to produce great quality, reasonably priced products that rightly support the welfare of animals.

3 Goals for the New Year

I'm not really big on New Year's 'resolutions' and never have been, but I do see the New Year as a great time to think about any changes I might want to make to my life and set myself a few little goals to try and aim for. I prefer to be realistic and keep things pretty small, but it's still nice to get the sense of a fresh start!
