WISHES & GOALS FOR JANUARY


Hi guys! Im happy to be writing the second "wishes" post and the last one of 2014. Before I start, I want to thank everyone who became a member of this little corner of the internet this year. I truly appreciate each of you who followed and I want you to know it made me so happy to read your comments, tweets and everything you had to say. I am really looking forward to a new year and I am excited to keep reading your comments here and on the youtube channel. I wish you a wonderful 2015 full of good vibes, love and great things. Again, thank you so much for being part of my year!

That being said, its time to share our goals and wishes. I wanted to share my goals for the year but then I thought about all those years I made resolutions that never got accomplished. I feel like it would be easier for me to keep going step by step, accomplishing small goals that will lead to a productive and memorable year.

So here are my goals for this month:

- Make exercise a habit: I am including this goal again because I think December was not the ideal month to make a new habit. As its a Holiday month I was too tempted by staying in bed and although I improved my persistence, I did not follow my work out routine like I should have.

- Meal planning: I´ve made an improvement with the stuff I eat but there was days that I found myself making rushed decisions on what to eat and ended up eating unhealthy stuff more often. I never really considered planning my meals for the week and I thought it was a bit too much but if you fancy eating healthier, this is a great option. I´ve planned this week so far and I feel more enthusiastic of making nice food instead of eating stuff just to fill my hungry tummy.

- Make the best out of my creative days: As I mentioned on a recent post, there are days in which it is difficult to me to write or come up with new videos. I guess this is a common problem for anyone who has a blog or has a creative mind. But as I love posting and uploading videos for you every week, sometimes I get so frustrated to not have stuff to upload. This is why I want to do as much as I can on the days I feel so inspired and creative. To have a little extra for those days in which ideas are not flowing very easy.

- Learn how to use a sewing machine: A couple of days ago I found a lovely little place where they sell cute fabrics and I thought it would me amazing to learn how sew properly. I love the idea of having this skill as it opens a whole new world if you are fond of craft projects.

- Learn french: I have been meaning to do this for a while now but after a few lessons I stop and leave this goal under hiatus. This month I want to re start from scratch and keep learning until I can have a descent conversation with someone.

- Smile & laugh everyday: Because its always worth it.

I want to know what your wishes & goals are for this month or for this new year! Leave a comment with them and that way we can support and encourage each other!

Hope you have a great year! 

xoxo

FEELINGS OF WANDERLUST...


I have to be honest guys, I think I have what people call a writers block. As you might have noticed, there has been a lot of videos lately but very few written posts and this has annoyed me a bit as I love writing for you.


Maybe some of you who write blogs have been in a similar situation where you make a cup of tea, sit and feel determined to write a post but it words don´t come easy. I have experienced this a few times in the past, not only when trying to write for the blog but even when I had to work on essays for college... one thing that has always helped me is going for a walk.


Isn´t it lovely when you walk with no destination in mind, just to enjoy the view, take some fresh air and ease your mind. Well, as much as I love doing it, winter in Ireland makes it that little bit harder for me to go outside! This time however, I didn´t focus on my excuses, I simply grabbed my coat, played my current favourite album and off I went for a lovely walk in the park.

I found myself thinking on a few ideas, feeling peaceful and happy to explore my surroundings. The tree branches having only a few stubborn leaves refusing to fall and the mysterious, rich depth of colour that nature only displays at this time of the year.

I couldn´t resist taking few pictures to share them with you. Its strange the type of serenity you find in the bleakness of winter. I want to know, what do you do when you have to clear your mind?

ECOTOOLS EYE ENHACING DUO


The moment has arrived... my first time talking about make up brushes! I have tried to stay away from talking about make up tools for so long. I just feel like that is a very complicated world that only gurus and make up geeks are good at describing but hey! I am a girl that loves make up and these brushes have made me so happy that I thought it would great to tell you about them.



I purchased this set very recently as I needed a descent extra set of eye brushes, not only the design was appealing, but the price was reasonable too at only £6.99! I am surprised at how good they are and how soft they feel, they are perfect to carry on a little make up bag and I bet they are super handy when traveling as they save some space.



The set has two pieces with four different brushes (shade, define & blend, smudge), the bamboo handles are not only pretty looking but also sturdy and they blend any eyeshadow so well. I have washed them once already and neither the handles or the hair has come loose. In my opinion this set is amazing in shape,size and price!

ORGANIC WORLD MOROCCAN OIL FOR BODY & FACE


As I have mentioned in previous posts, I am slightly picky when it comes to body lotions and moisturisers. Some are too sticky and greasy, others are light and smooth but not helpful and even though I found a great option on The Body Shop´s body sorbets they are not very effective when the cold days arrive.



After searching for a new option, I think I have discovered one that will keep my skin smooth and moistuised... at first I did not have high hopes as I had a very shallow concept of what body oils were. I use to think they were the last thing I wanted to use, as they looked super uncomfortable and well... they are oily!

I didn´t hesitate much and got it, after all the things I have heard about Argan oil I thought it was worth a try. My opinion about body oils was quickly ditched as this lovely scented infusion was absorbed quickly by my skin leaving it silky smooth and moisturised. As far as the other things this oil claims to be helpful with, I have seen a very small improvement on my skin. I guess it might be a long term kind of thing but so far, it feels good on my skin and it has been a great help to battle the aggressiveness of the cold winter.
