always time for a coffee

Conto Lounge, Winton

On a rainy, autumn day my friend Katie and I went for a nice coffee (she got a hot chocolate) at the Conto Lounge on Winton high street. I think I spend around £20 a week on a nice coffee, the addiction I getting a bit ridiculous.

So the weather has taken a turn for the worst, it is officially winter and my mood is at an all time low. It is the beginning of my reading week and I am spending it at my boyfriends house. The fact I have the whole week off is stressing me out, I have so much I need to do and feel like I won’t get it all done. Solly also has his exam to become a qualified electrician on Friday. I am staying with my boyfriend all week as my Mum has officially moved out to Saudi Arabia to be with my Dad and I am not going to see either of them until Christmas. My house is so cold and empty.

The weather is definitely affecting everybody’s moods, it is dark by 5PM and I just want the Summer back already.

Happy November everybody! Time to get into the Christmas spirit.

pumpkin pickin’

SOPLEY FARM – PICK YOUR OWN

Is it halloween season if you don’t pick your own pumpkin? Today my friends and I went to Sopley farm in Christchurch where you are able to go and pick your own pumpkin. In the Summer it turns into a strawberry farm and in the Winter you are able to cut your own Christmas tree. I never really get into Halloween, I never get that dressed up or decorate my house, I just never understood the point. But this year has been so much fun! Although I’m not actually going out on Halloween, I spent the whole weekend dressed up with my friends.

Maybe next year I will make more of an effort, who knows.

 

keeping my skin clear through freshers

My house mates ❤

As everybody knows, freshers is filled with non stop drinking and eating crap, but I was determined to not let that effect my skin as it has been extremely clear over the Summer. As the temperature has dropped, my legs and arms have become very dry, so I have been moisturising near enough everyday after my shower. This is also to try my best to keep my tan!

Say goodbye to dry skin & hair this time of year

I HATE BLACKHEADS – 2 PRODUCTS THAT REDUCED MY BLACKHEADS FAST

EXFOLIATE

Neutrogena – Visibly Clear Blackhead Eliminating

At the moment I am using my favourite blackhead eliminator to exfoliate my skin. When I am drinking a lot of alcohol my skin breaks out in spots due to the amount of sugar and lack of water.

TONER

L’oreal Paris – Age perfect Micellar Water

This toner does not just keep your skin hydrated by removes your make up easily after a night out. It cleanses your skin, keeping it feeling smooth and hydrated. I prefer to use this than ordinary make up remover.

SUNSHINE

I know the weather in England has not been great over the past couple of weeks, but when the sun is out always try to make the most of it. Although it is cold, sunshine is so good for your skin. It will keep it clear and bronzed due to it triggering the synthesis of vitamin D in your body and causes the cells to travel to the outer layers. This means that the skin is able to protect and repair your skin.

LOTS OF WATER

When I am at University I find it such a challenge to fill my body with water, I don’t know why? Maybe its because I don’t like the tap water or spending money on it but my new trick it to put a filled up bottle of water into the fridge over night so it is ready for me to take to Uni in the morning. Water is so important, especially for your skin and body throughout freshers.

GREEN TEA

GREEN TEA is my new trick, it gives your skin a special glow and keeps you from getting ill throughout freshers. I try to have a big mug of green tea before I go to bed to settle my body. It is the healthiest drink on the planet as it is filled with antioxidants and nutrients that have powerful effects on your body. It is not just good for your skin but good for fat loss, the function of the brain and will improve health benefits.

I hope you have all had a fun freshers and are ready to get stuck into University, Freshers flu is a killer and if I am honest I don’t know why they call it freshers flu, once you have it you will have it for the whole year. Happy Tuesday!!
