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?

How To Give Up 'Stress'

How To Give Up 'Stress'


I've recently been dealing with a lot of stress and it's caused me not to sleep at night, makes me unable to cope in the day with basic business, and is just generally causing me to be unwell which has also lead me to be a bad blogger and not post for a while (also due to having no flipping internet). So today from now, I want to try and give up 'stress' and together I think we can do it, we'll go through the best ways to deal with things and what to do when you are ... 
BREATH ... Take a deep breath in and out, walk away from whatever is stressing you out and just breath deeply and take time to refocus. 

Write a to do list and plan ahead! Keeping a pad and pen next to your bed will help you empty your mind before you sleep too. 

TAKE YOUR TIME, you haven't got to rush!! There's enough hours in the day to do everything you want or need to do. 



Investing in yourself will help you in so many ways, not only will you feel better about yourself but it will help you to feel more accomplished. 

Remember, people will always want to help so if someone can help you tick a few things off your list then let them help!

Do one thing every single day that allows you to refocus, so for me thats having a cup of mint tea in silence. It helps me to refocus and allows me to just think. 



What are you going to do to give up stress?
