September Favourites

Hey everyone, this is going to be a post about al the things I’ve been loving throughout the month of September! It’s definitely been a funny old month but today is officially October and I don’t know about anyone else, but I just love the start of a new month – like a fresh start almost? And I definitely think Sunday’s are my favourite days! What about you? What’s your favourite day and do you like the start of a new month?

There’s actually not that many things that I’ve been loving this month, to be fair this month has been kind of blur and I’ve just got through it as best I could.. The first thing that I’ve been loving is a cleaning device and that is my Dyson wireless vacuum – it’s just been a total godsend! We invested in it I’d say a couple of months ago but I’ve only just properly mentioned about it, it really makes life so easy and I can actually Hoover most days and I don’t find it a chore anymore… My previous Hoover was just so difficult and cumbersome so I’m so happy we invested and it’s definitely worth it, we paid £189.99 (I believe) from where I work, however they price matched with Argos.

The next thing I’ve been loving it TEA!! My favourite teas this month have been: Lemon and Ginger tea from Aldi, Tetley Immune green Tea in tropical flavour and Matcha Green Tea by M&S. Every morning before I do my yoga I make myself a green tea, I then take it upstairs and relax whilst I drink it and I’m sure it gives me that little bit of energy to go and do my yoga – after that throughout the day and always try and opt for the lemon and ginger tea as I’ve read that ginger is a very good anti-inflammatory spice so I try and drink as much as possible, I sometimes do have a normal cup of tea with almond milk but I’d say only 1 cup of that a day and the tea that I drink is always decaf (apart from the green tea)

Beauty, Beauty, Beauty really is my favourite thing!! I would rather buy beauty items than clothes!! LOL!! I wouldn’t call myself fashionable, I just put clothes that are comfortable but beauty products on the other hand are totally different! My favourite products this month have been:-

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish – original – I’ve been loving this so much!! I actually bought another bottle today lol, only a slightly larger one which will hopefully last longer – I use this morning and night and I just love the way it makes me skin feel and also the scent is so relaxing, always reminds me a having a lovely spa treatment. Also Liz Earle’s products are Cruelty Free which is great so a massive thumbs up to her!! They’re also reasonably affordable, I wouldn’t put them in the high end category although the they feel and smell high end!

Pure Clear Blemish Rescue Mask – Loreal Now I know this face mask isn’t Cruelty Free and it’s one of the items that I have which isn’t, however I just love this face mask for dramatically reducing blemishes! I use it when I have a pesky spot forming and it makes my skin feel amazing! I have seen another face mask which I believe is cruelty free so once this one has finished I shall try that one and see if it’s just as good 

No. 7 Beautiful Skin Pore Minimising Serum – OMG!! This really has been a game changer for me!! This is relatively expensive (£16.00) however it has massively reduced my pores and I haven’t found ANYTHING that has done that!! I use it morning and night and within 28 days I could notice a difference, if you have enlarged pores I’d definitely give this beauty a go!

My super amazing cosy yoga trousers (I think k they’re just lounge wear but I wear them for yoga lol.. they’re from Apricot and I absolutely LOVE them! They are so soft and comfy and if I’m not in my pyjamas then I’m most likely in those lol! 

Spending time with friends – I may have mentioned in one of my previous blog posts (Going Back to work Week 5 or 6) that I went out to a friends fancy dress party, well I just have such a lovely time and it really made me feel great being surrounded by lovely friends and for once it made me forget about having a chronic illness/Multiple Sclerosis – I just had fun which is what we all need to do I think. I also love having girly nights with my sister (we are very close) and my best friend comes over some Saturday nights for a movie night which is always great too 

I hope you have enjoyed reading this blog post, how has your Sunday been? I hope you all have a wonder week and I’ll see you next week – I’m feeling so much better than I did the other day which is great and I’m still making sure I don’t over do it but enjoy life at the same time… Multiple Sclerosis is just one big emotional roller coaster right?

Love and big hugs to you always

Monthly Favourites – August

Hello everyone, how are you all doing? As always leave me a comment and I’ll be able to connect with you all 🙂

I can’t believe it’s the end of August already??!! Where is this year going? SO as it’s that time I thought I’d let you all know what I’ve been loving throughout the month of August, from Beauty to new phone apps that I’ve recently discovered. I hope you call enjoy the read and pictures :) 

Beauty

Well there’s only a couple of things I’ve been loving this month relating to beauty, the main thing has been No.7 Beautiful Skin Pore Vacuum Mask – ‘Peel to reveal less visible pores instantly’… So this is claiming a lot and let me tell you all – they are RIGHT!! I tried this product just once and as soon as I peeled it off I noticed that my pores were reduced quite a lot, which was great!! If you have overly large pores you may not find that it works instantly, however I was pleasantly surprised! The only thing I will say about this face mask is be careful not to get it near any nose hairs lol it’s like giving your face a little waxing and might make your eyes water with the pain slightly lol haha!!  

The other final little Beauty related favourite is BATH TIME!! I have a bath quite regularly because I find them just so relaxing, I always light lots of candles, use lovely relaxing bubble bath and just enjoy the time to totally relax – we all should do this more often. Once I’m out of the bath I always feel 100% better and a lot more relaxed and usually exhausted because I have them just before bed… Always helps me drift off to sleep. 

Apps 

There are a couple of phone Apps that I want to talk about, which I’ve found to be such a great help already!! I’ve only been using them about a week so can’t really class them as proper Monthly Favourites, however I wanted to mention them as I think they would benefit a lot of people.  

Headspace – This is such a great App!! It’s a meditating app that helps you to just ‘get a little head space’ lol… I’ve been using it for almost a week now and it’s a 3 minute meditation session a day where you basically listen to a gentleman talk you through it. At the end I always feel a little more relaxed, happy and that I could take whatever the day has to face with a little more ease. I always use to dismiss the idea of meditation because I just thought I wouldn’t be able to do it (I get bored after a few minutes and just stop lol – anyone else the same?) But this is a great way to get into Meditation in 3 simple minutes.

Audible – After recently watching a Tanya Burr YouTube video she mentioned that she was listening to Harry Potter on Audible read by Stephen Fry – well what can I say… I LOVE it!! I listen to it every night and I just allows me to totally relax and concentrate on things that I’m doing e.g. Cooking dinner, sorting washing out, having a bath etc – I always listen to it at night around 8:30pm and I don’t watch anything else on my iPad because I feel that keeps me alert and awake, however listening to my audio book I find that it settles me right into sleep. Once you sign up to Audible you get a free 30 day trial and a free book, however after the 30days you then have to pay – I have done my 30 day period, however I’ve cancelled my subscription because I cannot afford it at the moment.. I have 3 books 1 of which I got for free.. The others I purchased.

Makeup

Recently I’ve been following an amazing makeup artist on Instagram called Ling.kt, her makeup is just incredible and she’s such a natural down to earth person.. Nothing fake about her at all.. Her Instagram videos always make me laugh with her crazy faces and poses – It also inspired me to set up my own Instagram page for my makeup skills – just playing really!! I did complete a BTEC National Diploma in Media makeup and Beauty Therapy Level two, however never really took it up properly after that. Now with my Instagram account up and running I’m rediscovering the love I have for makeup and it really helps me to take my mind away from other things when playing around with various eye shadows – plus I feel good once I’ve finished.. (My new Instagram page is @hannahelizamakeup)   

The makeup products I’ve been loving are ALL drug store and the main product that I’ve been obsessed with ever since I purchased it is NYX Warm Neutrals eye shadow palette. This is such a GORGEOUS Palette and the colours are lovely and pigmented (Make sure you tap off the access to reduce the chances of fall down first) I’ve been doing a few makeup looks and always using this palette!

The next product I’ve been loving is also by NYX Cosmetics and this is the eye brow pomade in the colour chocolate – ever since I’ve purchased this I’ve found my brows a lot more easier to control haha and you only need the tiniest amount of product, which is also great because I won’t need to buy anymore in a while.

Now the finale makeup product that I’ve been loving this month is by Collection (they do Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, which I also love!) and that’s their gel eye liner in the colour black. You get a little brush with it, which I have used however I would maybe recommend getting yourself a slightly larger eyeliner brush for it. Although since using the little brush I’ve found no problem, I’ve also been following another Instagrammer called keshiaeast_ , she also has a YouTube channel and this is where I discovered how to apply eyeliner in general.. Since watching her video I feel a lot more confident and they look pretty good too (most of the time)

Home Comforts

On the Bank Holiday weekend I had a few people over helping me make my home a little more tranquil… On Sunday my sister helped me redo my back garden, we popped to a little garden centre and picked up some bit to make it beautiful. Once we had finished it looked beautiful and now every time I look out of the window or go outside it just makes me feel happy and relaxed.  

Then on Bank Holiday Monday my Aunt came over and helped me decorate mine and George’s bedroom. We chose the colour a couple of weeks prior (we went for Blue Opal by Deluxe) and once the finished coat had dried it made the room look bigger, brighter and a lot more relaxing!! To top everything off my Aunt had very kindly bought me a picture from Wilko’s, it’s a beautiful picture of a woodland and you can just see the sun peering through. I then found a coupe of other pictures that my dad gave me and a little bedside lamp so overall my bedroom is definitely my new place of relaxation and I’m so very happy with it!!

Now these are all the things I’ve been loving throughout the month of August, thank you so much for taking the time to read this and I do hope you liked it – feel free to leave me any comments and let me know what you thought.

Massive hugs and love always

My Final Break Away! 

Yes.. the title is correct.. this is my final little break away before………. Going back to work! I have been off work with this relapse for just over 8 weeks battling through and going through the recovery process. It’s definitely not all been plain sailing, in fact there have been some heavy storms throughout my recovery period.. however I can finally say that I’m starting to come into remission and feeling a lot stronger again. 

So I decided to take myself away again to my Aunt’s house to stay with her, my Nana and Uncle for a few days just to build strength further. 

I had a lovely time and was very well looked after… I also felt like I could achieve more and that I didn’t need to sit down and rest as much as I had done previously.. I was also starting to walk small distances without my crutch (in the house) and try and use it on small journeys outside the house, which was a huge step one that made me feel so happy! 

My anxiety is a lot better also, not being afraid to do nice things whilst on recovery has really calmed down and I started to enjoy things a lot more (just sitting in my Aunt’s field observing the wildlife was one main thing) we even went to a local store called Downtown and had a look around.. it was so nice to feel okay and not feel like I was being spied on etc.. I know all of my work colleagues are fully supporting me and have told me that I need to go out, which is a great reassurance.. I know I don’t have to justify myself to anyone… But us with invisible illness get judged constantly and it’s so wrong on so many levels so to feel un-judged was lovely. 

Enough rambling now lol.. I’m going to insert some pictures of what I got up to whilst away! 

Ive also really been getting back into playing the piano.. it’s really been helping my MS and helping me to relax… If you’d like to see a video on me playing then head on over to my YouTube account– http://www.youtube.com/hannahsmithswj

July Favourites

So… The last few months haven’t been too great for me and to be honest I’ve been struggling to find things that I was just ‘loving’. However the last couple of weeks I’ve finally found things that have really made me happy and therefore I thought I’d share them with you all. 

Flowers in the garden

Whilst I’ve been off I’ve spent a lot of time (when it’s been sunny) in the garden, just sitting admiring my beautiful flowers and silver birch tree… Whether it’s having a ice cup of tea and cheeky slice of cake of a cloudy lemonade in my cocktail glass imagining I’m having a fabulous cocktail.

My Aunt, Uncle and Grandmother brought me some beautifully colour flowers and they really do brighten my day when I’m feeling a bit rubbish.. I just look out of the window and see colour! 

Having time for myself

Now that I can do more things without help (recovering finally) I’ve been enjoying just having some ‘me time’ whether it’s having a nice bubble bath, just spending a few extra hours in bed, writing in my Bullet Journal or having a girly set up – nail varnish, mocktail and episodes of Sex and The City.

It’s really been making me feel a lot more happier and upbeat whilst being off, a lot of us with chronic illnesses feel quite low and just a bit helpless.. But when we are able. To enjoy little things to make ourselves happy… Grab it with both hands! IT’s okay to enjoy little things from time to time.

Playing the piano

This is one thing I’ve really taken up over the last month and something that I’ve been truly loving… I have mostly daily internet lessons with my Aunt via FaceTime or Skype and I’ve FINALLY almost finished learning this piece called I Giorni by my favourite composer Ludivico Einaudi who I’ve loved for years.. his pieces are so relaxing and one day I will learn them all!

My piano sits in my front room next to the kitchen door and since I’ve decided to have the lid up its just been a lot more attractive and made the room look nicer too and when friends come to visit me they always notice the piano a lot more. Next piece is Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata.

My cat Arthur

This comes at no surprise to some of you, I love my cat Arthur! We’ve had him for over 2 years and he’s really changed mine and George’s lives for the better. 

Since being off sick he’s really been there for me and a real comfort during the days when I’m home alone.. He’s such a character as well which always makes me smile. If you have a pet I’m sure you’ll understand what I mean.. they all just give you unconditional love don’t they? I love him every month, however I thought I’d put him in this month’s favourite list. 

Making new friends

Since creating our Facebook page with the lovely Natalie from  Surviving Life’s Hurdles I feel like I’ve made some truly lovely new friends who actually understand exactly how I’m feeling! I’m incredibly lucky to have some genuinely lovely friends who are so supportive, however it’s lovely to meet people who are in the same situation as you. I love connecting with them all on our Facebook page it’s a lovely group and if any of you out there have just been diagnosed with MS then come along and join us 🙂 http://www.facebook.com/groups/718223168361813/

What I Got For My Birthday 2017

Hey everyone,

I know right?! Long time no speak! Well I’ve had a birthday recently AND been poorly so I’ve had a little break from blogging to give myself time to recover… I’m feeling much better now and ready to get my teeth back into blogging! 

I was going to film a video about what I got for my birthday, however the things that I got.. I can’t really show on video (nothing rude before you start thinking lol!!) They’re just not physical objects… 

So I thought I’d write a blog post about them instead 🙂 I hope you enjoy the read, leave me any comments and I’ll be sure to reply…okay… Let’s get started! 

Driving Lessons

I had decided at the beginning of the year that 2017 was the year that I would learn to drive… I know I’m 27 and still don’t drive, however where I live doesn’t really require much driving… I can get to work and to my mum’s via public transport, I can walk to the shops if I need anything essential or do an online delivery shop and I can get into town easily too… 

The main reason of learning to drive is so that George and I have more freedom… We don’t have to rely on others to take us to places. Also if my MS is particularly bad one morning before work then I can have more rest in bed and drive into work that day… I’d also love to say to George one day.. “Hey, let’s go out!” It will be so much better!! 

So for my birthday my main present was money to go towards driving lessons.. my sister recommended her driving instructor and he is so lovely (I had my first lesson last week and LOVED it!!) He was really calm and funny and really made me feel at ease! 

I’m hoping in a few weeks to sit in for my theory test (I hate tests!!) So some of the money will go towards that too. 

A NEW BULLET JOURNAL
YAY!! The other main present I asked for from George was a new Bullet Journal… The one I really wanted was a Leuchtturm 1917 dotter grid book and that is what he got for me… Also to go with it he got me some new washi tape and some colourful tabs! I absolutely love it and have already started in it! Maybe you’ll see a “Flip Through” soon 😊

A DAY TO LONDON 

Now my Aunt and I always like to “do something” for my birthday and make memories so this year she took me to London for afternoon tea at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel on Hyde Park! 

Once we got to London we obviously had to do the usual — Harrods, whenever we come to London we ALWAYS go to Harrods.. I mean.. it’s such lovely place we couldn’t possibly not go! We had a delicious lunch in the cafe upstairs, wandered around and admired all the gorgeous bedding! (I love bedding!!) And then had a look around the Harrods shop where I got a new water bottle and a Key Ring 😊

We then trotted off to the hotel for our afternoon tea, it’s currently having some renovation work done so we entered through the ballroom entrance.. it was gorgeous inside! Modern but yet beautifully elegant! The staff were absolutely outstanding and couldn’t do enough for us… When we arrived we were asked if we would like some water… THEN we were asked if we would like it “room temperature or chilled”!! That was the best part I think because I had never been asked anything like that before!! The waiters also came round a fluffed your cushions for you as you say down too which again… Impeccable service!! 

I opted for a gluten free afternoon tea because my stomach hadn’t been quite right.. and let me tell you! It was DELICIOUS! The sandwiches were lovely and moist, the scones and cakes were all delicious too.. ALL gluten free!! We couldn’t finish them all so the lovely waiter packaged up the rest and put it all in a gorgeous bag for us! We also bought some of the tea we had.. “White tea infuser with mango” it was delicious! 

All in all… This hotel is now our favourite.. we felt so relaxed and comfortable to just be ourselves here! We’ve been to The Savoy, Claridges and The Ritz… All amazing places, however Mandarin Oriental… I think tops them all!! We WILL be back!! We also went to the Ice Bar London.. and that was an amazing experience also! I’d highly recommend that to anyone 😊

(Check out my INSTSGRAM account to see more pics — hannaheliza_1990 :))

LUNCH WITH DAD

As well as driving lessons from my dad and step mum, my dad came down from where he lives in Yorkshire and took me out for a lovely lunch where I live.. we had a look around the shops and a cheeky drink before our meal.. then went to BILLS restaurant where I was greeted by a lovely bunch of flowers and a balloon on the table 😊 the food was delicious and the service was fab too! We then went back into the shopping centre and I got a lovely Superdry hoodie! I’ve always wanted something light that I could wear instead of my coat and this is perfect 😊 

My mum and step dad also gave me money for driving lessons, however my lovely mummy also gave me some vouchers for a spa that has recently opened near us and we are going to book a couple of treatments together.. I love anything spa related so I’m really looking forward to this 😊😊 

And finally my mum and sister got me this amazing Krispy Kreme doughnut cake and I absolutely LOVED IT!! I hope you enjoyed this blog post… Remember to leave me any comments and I’ll be sure to reply and I’ll see you all very soon 😊

Bullet Journal Flip Through – March

Hello everyone how are you all? I hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend 🙂 

My YouTube channel http://www.youtube.com/hannahsmithswj

So this weeks entry is going to be a Bullet Journal one (obviously from the title!!) As you all know I am borderline obsessed with my Bullet Journal and it has helped me tremendously with managing and coping with Multiple Sclerosis. 

When I started my Bullet Journal I didn’t really know what sort of direction or plan I was going to take.. I didn’t really have any ideas of my own at the time.. I was heavily inspired by BoHo Berry (If you’re starting a Journal I’d highly recommend checking her out) 

My Bullet Journal has changed a lot Id say since March.. I’ve found a little routine and pattern and use it to help me manage my Multiple Sclerosis on a daily basis.. I also find it so therapeutic because I’m creative.. so creating pages and colouring is a great relaxer. 

So… Let’s get on with the Flip Through of my Bullet Journal.. March entry…

The lens that I use are the Paper Mate Flair Original Felt Pens, The Stabilo 88 fine liners and the Staedler (sorry if misspelt) TriPlus Fine liners… I use have a couple of plain black ball point pens that I got from The Works.. and these are great! 

I have been doing a “Gratitude Log” now since Jan 2017 when I started my Bullet Journal.. I think it’s great and really gets you to appreciate the smaller things in life… Similar to my new invention “MS Achievement Log” when I had my relapse in Jan I felt quite low and just a bit depressed by it all really… I’m a positive person and wanted to turn this negativity around.. and that’s when I created the “MS Achievement Log”, this is where I write down one thing every day what I have achieved throughout the day.. this couple be anything and so small too.. so when i look back it will make me feel more positive about my current and ongoing health situation. 

I won’t chat much about this section because most of you know that I absolutely LOVE meal planning! It’s helped me out so much even if I’m not eating super healthily.. just knowing what I’m having makes a massive difference to my stress levels and it’s so much cheaper too.. 

My YouTube & Blog post scheduler I’ve been doing since March, one of my goals this year was that I wanted to grow my YouTube channel and Blog and I’ve found writing down ideas has been great and kept me on track and to a schedule too.. even if I decide that I don’t want to do a video or a blog post on a certain topic then I just cross it out 🙂 

  So.. this page is a little different to usual.. on the left side is an actually diary entry.. it’s when I was feeling particularly low and i just decided to write down everything and write down exactly how I was feeling and I then decided to put this colourful card over the top as that was me saying “that’s finished now, you can move on” and then the other side is my “Monthly Tracker or Habbit Tracker” even though it’s every day things mainly it’s just all helped me keep on the straight and narrow really and I do this every month. 

Every other month or so I like to create some different recipes to try for lunches (dinners are quite and easy and try to be healthy too) and I love writing down and researching delicious recipes.. and then trying them.. it just gives me inspiration to continue to eat healthier. 

Exercise programme time! Things have changed now because Im doing a 30 day Yoga challenge for beginners so I don’t really do a exercise programme anymore.. but through the month of March I really stuck to this and found that I could really understand my body and learn what exercises I could and couldn’t do (e.g couldn’t go walking after work.. but I could do 20mins Yoga) 

Now this page was specially made for March… I properly came back to work after my relapse in March and I decided to create this log to see what points during the day at work that fatigue would set in.. to be honest though I hadn’t fully recovered from my relapse and zi found that there was really a pattern to my fatigue at that point.. whereas now I find that in the mornings before Breakfast and in the evenings is where Fatigue hits the most…However myself and my manager have come up with a lovely little routine so that helps a lot with my Fatigue 🙂 

Dailies, Dailies, Dailies.. there’s not much I can say about my Daily page apart from that you have them in all diaries and I like to make them as colourful as poss.. i just write down things that need completing or doing etc and then to k them off once they’re done 🙂 that’s pretty much it really 🙂 

Now this part is a new addition for March.. it’s a log to “Help With Fatigue After Work” I think I may have spoken about this briefly before in a post.. but I have created little daily tasks to follow to help relax me in the evenings.. before getting the bullet journal I would panic and rush around to get everything done and even before getting changed out of my work clothes.. where as now… The first thing I do is make a nice cup of tea before I do anything else when I get it.. I just needed a little reminder that I need to relax after work not push myself further! 

And finally we come into April… I’m going to end my blog post here this week. If you would like to see a video of April in my Bullet Journal then please comment or like this post and I shall do another one… Please remember to check out my YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/hannahsmithswj) where the video version of this post will be and I shall see you all next week! 

Love you all lots and I hope you had a great weekend
