happiness...with a journal

Happiness....everyone has their own view of what makes them happy, whether that's an object, a person or even something they have done/achieved that makes them happy .It could be the smallest of things, but how do you know if you are really happy?

well..i thought i was, then i realised that i wasn't so i decided to make some changes, on major one being my job that i had worked in for nearly 11 years.
so for 2017, i can truly say that I've never been happier! changing my job was the best thing i did! i never realised how unhappy i really was...and  i was unhappy for a long time.
now, I'm not one for change..in fact i hate it! but I've come to learn that change CAN be a good thing. and i now appreciate changes...abit more anyways!!
it was a massive thing for me to leave my job, i had known the place inside out for years and i knew my surroundings..and i got way to comfortable being in my little bubble that i thought i would always be in because i was too scared to change. i was utterly petrified but when i look back at a year, i cant believe how much of a positive impact it had on me for me to feel so happy now!
i suffer from anxiety and since not being there i am soo much calmer! i don't dread going to into work the next day, I'm happy going into work and working for someone is generally lovely and who actually appreciates who she has!
so remember people, change can definitely be a good thing! and if i can do it anyone can :) you will never know what other excting doors it may open....!

its amazing how much people can have a massive affect on your mood, surrounding yourself by positive people is a huge key to being happy.
'you deserve to be happy, you deserve to life a life you are excited about. Don't let others make you forget that.'

Now, as we have headed into a new year (2018,can you believe it?!)  and at a very happy and positive start, I decided to buy a 'happiness journal', so each day you write something that has made you smile, so i can look back in a years time and have some little memories as well as photographing more of my days, that's definitely a  resolution of mine, to make more memories. life is way to short....x

I hope your start to 2018 has been a happy one and i hope it continues for the rest of the year for whatever exciting things you have planned!

Bath and body works autumn collection

Can we just talk about bath and body works products?! i flippin' LOVE them!. They always bring out the best scents especially in autumn/winter. So it would of been rude of me not to try out some of the autumn creamy body wash range ;)


I'll be honest...its not my favourite packaging that they have brought out but putting that aside, they smell AMAZING!


For those who live in the uk (like me) and are not lucky enough to have any stores near to just go in and buy everything! (i wish i could!) we do have a few options...oh yes, you can get your hands on them, hooray!! you can order on the website and get them shipped over but you can pay a hefty customs charge :( and you cannot order everything from there to be shipped to the u.k. I use a uk facebook selling site, with people who work on cabin crew, who can take direct orders! or from lovely people that do make a big orders to be shipped! the people on the facebook site which is called bath and body works fans uk are amazing and i …

why professional over highstreet? (hair care)

As a hairdresser i get asked a lot about the best shampoo's you can buy in a high street store! and my answer to that? NONE.
I always advise my clients to go for professional shampoo. Most of the time the response we get is " but high street brands are a lot cheaper" and yes there is a reason for that...they are full of crap! i wont go into the science part but they have a lot of  harsh chemicals in them that do nothing good for your locks!. You are basically pouring plastic on your hair, alot of the cheaper brands have a lot of silicone's in them, which might lead you to think that its making your hair lovely and soft, but your just coating it and not actually, cleansing your hair ...so then it gets greasy and itchy quick?... i wonder why!

 We do not recommend professional products to gain the money, we actually care about your hair!
they don't have the harsh chemicals in them that the cheaper brands have in. If you colour your hair they don't strip it out! …

my winter staples

I might be a little late to the party considering winter has been here for a while! but better late than never and it is still winter!
in the colder months there are certain beauty products that are my saviours that i use every single day in the winter.
I think its important to really look after your skin throughout the year, but definitely in the winter with the harsh cold weather on your skin can make it pretty dry. So keeping my skin soft and well moisturised is most definitely a MUST - who wants dry skin?!

Body cream- the one brand that never fails me are the bath and body works Shea creams, they are super moisturising, they leave your skin so soft and they smell amazing! and the fragrance really lingers. my favourite part about these besides the gorgeous scents are the fact they aren't sticky! i love a bath at night time and there is nothing worse then getting into bed feeling all tacky after moisturising! they soak into your skin really quickly, so you don't get that tac…
