Confidence can be a big knock on a day-to-day basis but when it comes to having to special day that you want to look your best for nothing is worse than losing your confidence; and more times than not, it’s about how you feel about you and the way you look. Nothing is more annoying than having your body fight against you, and mine is definitely one of those that do this. I love ice cream, hot chocolates, cheese on my pasta and milkshakes. I’m lactose-intolerant. It’s actually really sad. Too much dairy not only makes me pukey, but it also makes me break out and have eczema. There’s nothing worse than having plans and feeling rubbish.
Another problem – the dreaded spot that literally forms overnight. Firstly, how dare you. But seriously, no one can avoid them, but help: clear skin* is a perfect little thing to help reduce the problem. From the brand Works with Water, it literally does just that so you don’t have to go out of your way with extreme routines in order to complete a course of the supplement. It’s also available for men and can be bought as a two week or four week pack. All you do is add one sachet to your favourite hot or cold drink and then drink! I go with Cranberry Juice because it’s my favourite (and high in antioxidants!) And on top of that I’m trying to drink more water throughout the day too. I mean I can’t just take something that supposed to be helping me but not helping myself either.
And if this wasn’t enough I also came across a brand called Arbonne who have a ‘blemish’ range that did absolute wonders on a red thing I had forming on my nose (gross!) There’s a whole kit which had the redness gone in less than 24 hours which was awesome.
What’s one of the most important things on February 14th? Your lips! Valentine’s is all about sharing love and affection so kissing is definitely on that list. What better way to say ‘I love you honey’ than making sure your lips are on top form and perfectly kissable with some actual honey? Bee Good have two amazing Lip Balm flavours* perfectly sweet for Valentine’s – Raspberry & White Chocolate and Vanilla & Honey. Yes, both of which smell as good as they sound, and both are so moisturising that my mum is currently trying to steal the Vanilla & Honey one from me thinking that I won’t notice. It’s so moisturising that I have invested in NectaPerfecta Beautifying Mask – you have got to love that name – which can be used on your face, scalp and hands! Gotta love those Bees!

I’ve never been one for ‘about me’ pages so let's keep it short and sweet: I'm 25 (so I guess you could assume I'm going through a quarter-life crisis), London-based, love food, oh, and partial to a rum-based drink... or just the rum tbh.
