Love yourself

Hi all, it’s been a while but this my most recent post. Love yourself.

💓 Have some me time

For me hot baths are a perfect way to have some me time, a chance to sit and relax and fully unwind. Use candles/incense and bubbles for the ultimate experience.

💧Skin routine

Having a good skin routine is a must! Nothing is promised tomorrow but waking up with glowing skin can be. Keep it simple with 4 steps: cleanse, tone, oil/serum, moisturise and weekly face masks. From research into dermatology I’ve learnt you only need to do your routine once every evening. Your skin rejuvenates during your sleep and your skin cells regenerate faster at night. In the morning with clean hands simply splash face with water and apply moisturiser then make up.

🍌 Look after the inside

Most importantly drinking water and eating healthy foods are beneficial to your health and appearance. Be sure to load up on fruit and veg and cook fresh meals.

🏠 Your home

I don’t know about you guys but if my house is untidy and needs a good clean it makes me feel crap. As soon as I’ve tidied and sat down with a hot chocolate I feel so much more positive and pretty much completely at peace. Use products that smell great, I like using orange and lavender products.

📚 Your mind

Reading a book/magazine/articles or even watching a documentary is something I love to do. They say knowledge is power and it’s great to learn new things, keeping your brain active this could also be your me time.

Homemade toilet fizzies

Hello all, I’ve made these little beauties a few times, they’re quick and simple to make, only 3 household ingredients needed. They whiten and brighten and keep the bathroom smelling glorious.

DIY toilet fizzies

Gather the following supplies, mix together, spoon and press into moulds (an ice cube tray works great) leave them to set for 24 hours. Store in an air tight container (I used a salsa dip jar and spray painted the lid copper)

  • Baking soda 1 cup
  • Citric acid 1/4 cup
  • Washing liquid 1tbsp
  • Essential oils 5 drops of each (I used eucalyptus as it’s a strong scent and eliminates odours and lavender)

I use 1-2 fizzies, drop them into the toilet and wait a couple of minutes for them to fizz, then scrub with a toilet brush, flush and voilà.

DIY natural febreze

Hello all, this is my ultimate favourite tip, you can experiment with different scents and of course it’s cheap and cheerful and simple to make.

DIY febreze – lavender, lemon and eucalyptus

Fill an empty spray bottle with water, a tablespoon of baking soda and 10 drops of essential oils for each scent, with strong oils such as eucalyptus I use around 5 drops. I also use lavender, which is an antiseptic and lemon. Both eucalyptus and baking soda eliminate strong odours. I spray it on my sofas, cushions, tapestries and carpets and it truly lasts.
