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
