My 2017 Happy Moments!

As this year comes to an end, which I’m not going to lie, I’m pretty looking forward to because of how crap the last few months have been. I thought I would take some time to reflect on the good parts of 2017 and the memories of this year that have really made me happy and smile. 

Starting with the beginning of the year:

£30 & Under Christmas Gift Guide For Her

Bloody hell. I can’t believe another year has gone by and I’m sat here writing another gift guide to help some of you who may be lacking inspiration. If you have read my blog for a long time, follow me on social media or know me personally, you will know that I refer to myself as the ‘crazy-Christmas-lady’ but I tell you what, I refuse to go out shopping through the pre- Christmas sales and fight people for the last of everything on the shelf. I just can't bare it. Therefore, I do all of my Christmas shopping online. 

Christmas shopping can fill people with dread because 1. They find it stressful and 2. Because they’re worried about money and haven’t got enough of it. I’ve come up with present suggestions that are all £30 and under (majority being under) that I would personally give to somebody or that I would like to receive myself.

Tis the season to indulge, fa la la la la, la la la la. 
My favourite season is upon us (finally) and although I enjoy baking all year round, I get most of my inspiration around the colder months, when I’m craving warm fluffy brownies with thick creamy hot chocolates or in this case, gooey chocolate chunk cookies with a glass of milk (cue all the ooohs and the ahhhs).

You know how some people suffer with 'SAD' in the Autumn and Winter months? That's me in the Summer. I really don't enjoy it, I've spoken about this a lot throughout the years, especially on my twitter where I like to vent and go off on one.. but I really just don't like it in the UK. When it hits September and I can feel the season changing, a huge burst of excitement starts to fizzle inside of me and I CAN'T CONTAIN IT.

October 12th.

I have always been quite a sick child for as long as I can remember. I would catch every cold, every flu and every tummy bug going. My immune system is slim to none and that carried on throughout my teenage years. For the past year and a half something just hasn’t been right, I started getting pains in my head and dizziness.

Making Some Changes

Hey hey hey! 
I’m going to be completely honest with you, I kinda lost my blogging mojo. I fell out of love with creating content on here and I have been feeling really uninspired and lost. I found myself comparing my blog to others and how many followers/views I had. I don't know why I slipped into that mind set but I'm ready to make some changes and snap out of it.

How To Have The Best Sunday

For some reason, people tend to dislike Sundays, especially when it gets to around 5pm and the evening is fast approaching and you start to think of the dreaded Monday morning. I, on the other hand.. fucking love Sundays. For me, it's a day of relaxation, lots of food and a time to plan for the week ahead. I'm going to give you a few tips to make your Sundays a little brighter.

If you've got curly hair, you will know that the curls don't stay bouncy for too long. You'll develop frizz, the curls will drop out and if they're anything like mine, they become ridiculously dry. I wash my hair about once a week, sometimes not even that because 1. My hair doesn't need to be washed that often and 2. It styles better when its less clean.

Following up from my birthday blog post (you can read that here) I thought it would be a good idea to list 22 life lessons that I have learned throughout the years about myself. I think it's healthy and important to reflect back on all the things that have made me the woman that I am today. So, without further ado..

Greece Photo Diary

Kalimera! That's Good Morning in Greek for those of you that didn't know haha. I just got back from 11 nights in the beautiful island of Kos in Greece and I had the time of my life. Greece has always been a country that I've wanted to see because of how beautiful it looks in photos and believe me, it lived up to all expectations. Obviously, I only saw one tiny part of it but even that was good enough. I hope that one day I'll be able to travel to all of the Greek islands and discover more of its beauty.

A vision board is a board that you use for pictures, inspiration and a sort of guide that you want your life to follow. I first heard about vision boards from the documentary "The Secret" which I have spoken about on here a hundred times. The law of attraction is working every second of every moment in our lives and visualisation is one of the strongest methods that put this into practice, as it feeds your subconscious mind.

Hello my angels, how's it going? It was my birthday on Tuesday the 9th of May and I can't quite believe that I'm now 22 years of age? It's bonkers. I had the most incredible birthday, surrounded by my family and the ones that mean the most to me. My mum went above and beyond with my gifts (which was totally unnecessary) and made me feel very spoilt and GRATEFUL.

Guys, I've found it. I've found the product that creates bouncy, soft and volumised curls without frizz AND without drying my hair out. I have been searching high and low for a product like this one, so here she is..

 Does anyone else go through stages where they really fancy a warm chocolate brownie or a cake of some sort but never have them in the house? ME TOO! Here is where this little bad boy comes in handy and it takes less than two minutes to make.

Lately, I've been really thinking about how much my life has changed in the space of a few months. I spoke on my Snapchat (it's iamcharleigh if you want to add me) about when I suffered with depression and anxiety between the ages of 14-16 and how much I thought I was never going to get out of this funk.

If there is one thing I'm completely shite at, its dieting. I'm in a position where I'm not 100% happy with my body but I also cannot give up chocolate cake for the life of me. About 6 weeks ago, I decided to start healthy eating and make better choices with my food without putting a label on it and without telling myself that it's a diet.. because I never stick to them. Although it's been a struggle, I've stuck to the 'healthy eating' so far and I'm happy with that.

Its finally Saturday ya'll and I'm soooo happy about that. This week has actually been really, really good. I attended the Tangle Teezer Disney press launch on Tuesday and it was so, so lovely! I finally got to meet the girls that have been super lovely towards me for way over a year now and constantly send me blog mail, so I'm very grateful and happy about that. Seeing as we were in London that day, we went and got Macarons in Covent Garden, went out for lunch and went into M&M World in Leicester Square and then went shopping in Oxford Street.

30 Ways To Practice Self Care

Sometimes people think that self-care is just eating right and exercising... which it is. However, that's not the only thing that you can do to practice self-care, it can also be something as little as taking yourself out for a coffee or painting your toe nails. Whatever soothes your soul.

15 Thoughts Girls Have During Sex

I tweeted not too long ago, asking whether you guys enjoy reading posts that are a little bit more mature, x rated and straight to the point. The 'YES' option won by a huge mile (which I'm happy about because these are the posts that I read the most) so.. yay!

Blogging Tips For Beginners!

Looking back when I first started blogging, I would of loved to of read a post about how to start a blog and where to even begin. I knew all about blogspot but I never really knew how to get the views especially when I had such a small following on social media. Now I have over 16,000 followers on Instagram and 7,500+ on Twitter, so my following has definitely grown. I get asked all the time, especially in real life about blogging and how people can go about starting their own.

I Had The Big Chop 💇🏽

I wrote a blog post last summer about how to grow your hair and what products will help to achieve length and strength here. I did everything that I said I was going to do in that post and my hair grew excessive amounts over the months. However, winter came around and those harsh winds took a toll on my hair and my split ends were out of control. 
Every time that I would wash my hair, it would all just break off in the shower and I mean clumps of it, BIG BALLS OF IT, yikes!

20 Quotes For When You Just Want To Give Up

We all have days where we feel like throwing in the towel and giving up. Either we're not getting the recognition that we deserve in our job roles, our friendships feel like they're one sided and you're just giving and they're just taking. Or you can't shift that cold that you've had for a week which is making you feel like utter sh*t with zero motivation for life (my current situation).

Why Self Care Is So Important

Taking care of yourself is just as important as taking care of others. Feeding your mind with self-love and positive affirmations will move mountains for you and this is something that I don't think people practice enough. Stress is something that we all deal with, whether you're a mother, a student, male or female, sometimes life gets a little too much.

Review: Shills Peel-Off Black Mask

Vegan Chocolate Pancakes

I woke up today and decided I wanted something different for breakfast. I'm trying to limit my intake of bread as well, so I didn't want some kind of breakfast sandwich. The first thing that came to mind was Pancakes but the only recipe that works for me is this one here and although it makes the most fluffiest, tastiest, american style-like pancakes, it does take a lot of time. So I thought I would try Vegan ones just because I know they only use 3/4 simple ingredients.
