How To Get Sh*t Done | Adulting 101

You've just moved into your first place and the realisation of being an adult sets in ... sh*t it's time to get serious. You have a few weeks of keeping on top of things but then every week you have to have one day or evening where you just blast through all the things you've been putting off! So today we're going to run through all the ways you can make the life admin day so much easier. 


Write a to do list as you go, on your phone or on a piece of paper just write everything down that you need to sort and you won't forget anything!

Set your jobs in order of priority, always make sure you get your most important tasks done first. 

Separate your work and personal tasks, so if you need to buy a bag for work and also buy your nephews birthday present make sure you keep them on separate lists... the birthday present is probably more important. 


Make sure you block out time to get stuff done, whether that be a Sunday or one evening in the week. For me, Fridays are great evenings. I get the shopping done and come back clean up and get all my life admin bits done. 

Remove physical distractions .... yes, put your phone on airplane mode and ignore it!! 

Try and physically manage your tasks, so all your paperwork bits put into one pile so you know you won't miss any!


Be realistic, if you know your to do list is too long then split it up and chill. Take your time, no one said there was a time limit. 

Start to organise yourself when your completing your to do list, a tidy mind will in turn equal a tidy life and trust me it makes EVERYTHING a lot easier. 


How do you get sh*t done?

Elemis Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream

Elemis Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream

Birthdays are all about getting that must have skincare and makeup that you don't want to fork out for yourself .... and my 23rd birthday brought me all the very best the skincare game has to offer! Todays little feature is on the Elemis Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream although I haven't been trailing this product for long it's already creating an impression. 


This is a super thick, luxurious feeling night cream that makes you feel super posh using it! I am a massive fan of the Elemis brand and always have been because they create products that work and give your skin everything it needs. The Elemis night cream is an oxygenating night cream that helps your skin's natural regeneration process, it essentially just gives your skin a helping hand. The blend of active ingredients like Laminaria Mediterranean algae and Padina Pavonica helps to improve skin suppleness, firmness and elasticity. The science behind the oxygenating is supported by anti-oxidant rich Sesame and Avacado oils delivering free-radical protection, this allows you to wake up with actively firmer looking skin with a radiant complexion. 



This night cream is suitable for all skin types *hail the Elemis creators* and will also help to delay the signs of premature ageing! The consistency of this cream is very thick and you would think it would be very heavy on your skin, but it just sinks into your skin and is really easily absorbed  Especially if you have dehydrated skin your skin will just drink this up like there's no tomorrow! They say you need to start using anti-ageing products or more targeted skin care at the age of 25 but there's no harm in beating the bus and getting in a tiny bit earlier. 



Have you tried the Elemis brand yet?

Turning 23 | The Realisation

Turning 23 | The Realisation 

Getting older is strange for anyone and everyone, when your younger you think it's great because you get parties and balloons and so many toys, when you hit your teenage years it's all a blur and your just anxious to get to 17 and learning to drive, and then you hit your twenties and you start to realise a lot and see things a lot differently. 


I turned 23 yesterday and experienced a whole whirlwind of emotions and realisations and getting older is a really strange feeling. I realised I'm not where I envisaged that I would be by 23 but feel like I've accomplished a lot, I discovered that I did want to celebrate my birthday with a chosen few opposed to years of not wanting too, and realising that material items aren't as important as they used to be when you where younger. 


Growing older you see a lot of things and experience a lot of things, some good and some bad but you learn from them and make different mistakes instead. So today the day that I've turned 23 years of age I feel lost, really really lost and I'm not sure why? I feel like I've had my whole life flash before me and I'm not sure how I feel how I've used my time. I feel as though I'm questioning everything about my decisions and where I am in life and it's weird. 


So, as I'm now old and questioning life I am more determined than ever to fulfil my life to every second because I have the privilege to live in it.

TMI | Lets Talk Period Hacks

TMI | Lets Talk Period Hacks 

Today I wanted to talk TMI and talk about periods ... I know it's a real tough topic for teenagers especially and some adults still feel uncomfterable talking about it but I feel once your happy in yourself then the confidence to talk about things like this will come! Today we're going to go through all the period hacks I've learnt and all the things you can do to make your period more comfterable. 



Using little cosmetic bags to put your period tools in will help to keep them discrete and all in one place. 

Keeping a small pack of Femfresh wipes when your out all day will help you to feel clean and fresh downstairs when on the go!! And using a wash like Femfresh when showering will really help to maintain your PH levels. 

Start a pre-period regimen: There’s not much you can do to relieve cramps or heavy bleeding once your period starts. So to avoid popping pain killers, prevention is key so drinking at least a litre of water a day will help to flush it through. 


Wearing bikini bottoms when on your period will be your life saver if you leak, there so much easier to wash out!! 

Curb your vices: I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but caffeine, alcohol, excess salt, and fatty foods and can all make your period symptoms worse. Resisting your cravings can actually help to stave off cramps and bloating. If you can’t survive without your morning cup of joe, make it a half-caf and try to hold off until mid-day on the crampiest day of your period.


Making sure you move around enough will really aid the cramps disappearance, making sure you do some gentle exercise every will help you to move them cramps and pains out of there. 

Sleep it off: If none of this is working for you, go ahead and sleep it off. It’s not just you… it’s scientifically proven that you’re more tired during your period – increases in progesterone levels that occur in the second half of your cycle actually do make you more sleepy.



What are your top period tips?
