Why Is It Important To Love Yourself? Never Let Anyone Make You Feel Less Than Amazing

The Hoxton Hotel, Shoreditch / Bralet / hair by Sassoon 
I'll forgive you if you clicked on this post and instantly Justin Bieber came to mind 'you should go and love yourself', love or hate Justin, he has a point. Valentines day, is a day you either love, hate or ignore. If you read my recent top date night beauty products post, you'll know I choose to embrace the idea of love. Call it consumerism, call it me falling for marketing strategies, I don't care, give me any excuse to spread a little love and show a little love and I'm there. I genuinely do feel all gooey inside when I see cute Valentines notes and gestures. It's the little things that count and hey, if one day a year we can all be soppy, then so be it. Today though, I wanted to touch on a different topic, actually inspired by one of my best friends, who has no Valentine (total lie, because she has me but anyway, more on that later). It's inspired me to talk about the power and importance of loving yourself and why you should never let anyone make you feel less than 100%. Let's chat.

The Best Date Night Pamper Night Products - Date Night Products

Valentines day gets a lot of hate. I personally don't hate Valentines day, in fact, I'm one of those people (single or taken) who has always loved the day. What's not to love about curling up and eating pizza and chocolate? give me any excuse to celebrate. I don't see it as purely a consumer day (I know a lot of people just think it's a marketing dream and a made up holiday), I see it as a day of love and well, an excuse to eat. Love though, not even just between a couple, but a way to spread a little love everywhere, whether it's to yourself (which is what this post is about) or, to your family, your friends or your partner. Every year I get my Mum a Valentines present, whether it's chocolates or flowers, yup, I am a consumers dream but life is too short to be cynical about every single thing, so I vote love. Share love. Spread love. Be in love (with him/her/yourself). So today, in aid of Valentines day, I want to talk about date night! I wanted to talk through some of my favourite Valentines themed products, my top items to get you date night ready, whether it's for an at home pamper session eating chocolates and pizza, or a girls night out, a night out with your loved one or whatever you fancy, or, just for date nights in general. I hope you love these products, they're some of my favourites! Don't forget to check out my Valentines gift guide too, if you do love Valentines day as much as I do!

A Serious Heart To Heart. Life At The Moment.

In 2016 I wrote ablog post about the importance of giving back, anytime at all, but particularly at Christmas. Giving back isn’t something that has to be done during the festive period alone though, giving back doesn’t just mean giving all your time and money to something either. Giving back can be done by smiling at someone on the street, taking your time out to talk to someone who might just need a little bit of support, or raising awareness for something serious. We all have a voice. I’m approached on a weekly basis by charities and I really wish I could help them all. However, I was once that girl who’d walk past charities in the street because I didn’t have any spare change or the time to talk. That doesn't make me a bad person, I just had other things on my mind and recognise that even if we wanted to, we cannot support every single charity. It’s not until recently, I’ve realised just how much raising awareness and raising money can help in so many ways. My life has changed recently and sadly, may not be the same for a long time. Let's talk.

Giorgio Armani Power Fabric Longwear High Coverage Foundation Review

power fabric foundation Armani's Luminous Silk has been a holy grail product in my make up bag for quite some time now,  actually, one of the foundations I wear on a daily basis. It only felt right then that I jumped at the chance to try Armani's new Power Fabric foundation. When it comes to beauty, I'm an addict, particularly with anything that promises a flawless base. A good foundation is like getting a good hair cut, vital, it's the foundations of your make up. Even though I'm not the biggest Kardashian fan, I am obviously in love with the way Kim Kardahishan's make up looks. It was when researching what make up does Kim Kardashian wear that I discovered Armani's Luminous Silk foundation, Kim's favourite. A celebrity fave and an Em fave (love her or hate her, there's no denying Kim Kardashian has the most flawless make up), this foundation clearly has a lot to live up to. Let's see if it passes my flawless skin test. Here's my full review of Armani Power Fabric Foundation.

Valentines Gift Ideas For Him And Her - What To Do On Valentines Day

valentines gift ideas
Valentines day is just around the corner, and there are definitely lots of different opinions on the day. For me, it's a day I've always loved, single or taken. I just love embracing well, love. I'm probably the soppiest person you will ever meet. I know it's deemed a 'fake holiday' and many people think it's only there to trick consumers into spending money, well call me a fool then because I fall for it every single time and I see no harm in doing so! I think one of my main reasons for loving Valentines day and February in general, is because it feels like Spring is really around the corner. So see this as a little gift guide, to treat yourself (totally guilty of showering myself in gifts during the Valentines day period), your friends (I always make my bestie a little Valentines day hamper), your family or your boyfriend/girlfriend. I guess as well as gifts, there are little gestures you can do to spread a little bit of love! I completely understand, if we love someone we should show them all the time, but Valentines day is a really nice excuse too. Open this up for a Valentines gift guide for him and her, as well as treats for yourself and ideas of what to do this Valentines day too.
