The T-Shirt You Never Knew You Needed

I going to be honest, I kind of hate t-shirts. They wear out really easy, you can’t pair them with much however the right t-shirt in the right outfit looks great. This particular t-shirt is great! This is one of my favourite outfits and I always pull it out if I have a last minute thing. The trousers, in case you were wondering, are from H&M.

I get so many compliments on this t-shirt and people always ask where I got it from because lets be honest ,it is stunning. I never find it hard to pair it with anything because it’s so simple and flattering. It has that kinda weird half sleeve thing going on that usually suits almost everyone which is personally why I like it so much. One of the things that stresses me out about graphic tees is the thought that the writing or design might peel off but this t-shirt hasn’t even showed a little sign of peeling which, I mean straight away gives it a 10/10 for me. Also it is literally the most comfortable shirt I’ve ever worn, not that I’ve worn many t-shirts, but still.

I bought it from the wonderful world of Etsy! A little brand called FAFWEAR sells this gorgeous tee. Enjoy shopping!

Pamper Routine

If there is one thing I could wish for it would be to be able to sort out my sleep routine because my god it’s not normal. I fall asleep at like two in the morning and then wake up at like seven….not very smart, not very healthy and it doesn’t make me feel great. However I do have a few tips and tricks I can use to help me fall asleep at a preferred time and I would love to share them with you but this is the one I’m going to share with you as well as a few products. I’v wanted to do this for a really long time but in my old house the lighting wasn’t very good in the bathroom but now, lucky me, I am finally able to show you a decent pamper routine.

To start I recommend using Himilayan pink salt or Epsom salts in your bath. If not bath bombs are always great choice particularly ones from lush.

These are some of my skin care favourites at the moment and if you haven’t figured it out already I’m kinda obsessed with Nip+Fab because its absolutely amazing. I start with the Soap&Glory vitamin C foaming cleanser which I have almost completely run out of. I follow it up with the Pure Essential facial scrub and lastly the Spa Sanctuary Cleansing balm; which by the way is the best decision I’ve made because it turned my skin from one flake away from completely cracking off to combination or at least hydrated dish.

I usually get pretty board around about this time because sitting I’m a mini pool which you can’t actually swim in isn’t going to be the time of my life. I usually watch a TV show on Netflix or youtube and sometimes a read a book on my kindle.

After the bath my skincare is pretty simple. For toner I use the Garnier Skin Active rose water toner which would probably be ten times more enjoyable if I hadn’t finished all my cotton pads. Then I use the Nip+Fab Bee Sting eye cream which actually sounds super weird but is nice and smells divine. I follow that up with the ever trusty Nip+Fab dragons blood fix plumping serum.

I use the Victoria Secret Pink 24K blush body lotion because it smells like heaven in a bottle.

Hope you found some products that may work for you and look forward to some upcoming posts!

 

 

Moving & Breaking My Computer

I am one of those people who can be super organised and within a second I can go from prepared to a complete mess. That is basically what happened when we moved house. Before we moved house everything was a bit of a mess and some how, don’t laugh, I broke my computer by sitting on the screen. Yes I know you must be thinking, how does that happen? but it did and it sucked not being able to blog for the amount of time that I wasn’t able. Luckily, in my case, Amazon is literally the best company in the frikin world and saved me by completely refunding the computer which like I don’t even get why because they know why my computer was broken.

I was very very excited to move for the sole reason that I was going to have a new room. If you know me you know I moved around my old room like a hundred times so having a new room made me less bored I guess. I must and I will do some sort of room tour or and organisation blog post (not that I’m very organised at the mo) but you guys seem to enjoy that sort of stuff so I will do it!

Thank you for reading!

How I Take Photos

I have recently been asked quite a few questions like how do I take photos, what camera do I use etc. Now of course everyone has a different style of photography and similarly to art you piece will never be exactly the same as someone else’s however here are just a few tips Tod get you started.

There are tones and tones of ‘decent’ cameras out there. Some good for beginners, some good for professionals. My camera is the Nikon D3400. For me its perfect. I would highly recommend it, especially if your new to photography. Its super easy to understand.

Photography has two parts – taking the photos + editing. Personally I think that there is some super over priced rubbish out there. When it comes to editing on free software I use Polarr which you can download free from the App Store. It’s also fun to take photos using  cool reflective surfaces. One of my favourite techniques is using a piece of glass with water sprayed on it. It gives either the effect of rain on a window or cool colour depending on the lighting. I have not yet tried this but I have been recommended to use a prism.

I have recently started editing my photos with grain because I really love the effect it gives.

I really hope you learnt at least one thing. Enjoy!
