Chit Chat #3: How To Spring Clean Your Life!

1. Engage in little acts of self indulgence, starting with your morning.  Eat a nutritious breakfast, drink a cup of coffee/tea or whatever floats your boat. Take a shower and appreciate it, instead of overthinking or planning out the rest of your day. Stop rushing and start living in the moment. Realize that this is a new day and it is yours. 

2. Take things as they come and do your best to be your best. 

3. Spend time with people. Without the interruption of a cellphone. The internet is always going to be there when you need it. The person you're hanging out with won't be. 

4. Eat healthier foods and aim to drink more water. Yes, I know, relatively straight forward but sometimes difficult to stick to. Begin by making healthier choices and the rest will follow. Learn how to set realistic goals that you'd like to achieve and make a plan to make that happen for you. 

5. Volunteer. 

6. Stop trying to impress other people. To put it bluntly, people don't really care what you're doing. Everyone is too busy worrying about themselves.

7. If you're unhappy with something, make an effort to change it. It really bugs me when people complain but make no effort to solve their problem. For example, you can't complain about being unfit if you don't do something to change it. This leads me to my next point which is...

...if you're unfit or would like to be in a better physical condition, try to change that by going for a walk and work yourself up to the point of running, to a pace that is best for you.  You can do it.

Tidy up your social media. Get rid of people you don't talk to, random adds, exes, whatever. Don't keep anyone in your life that doesn't make you happy or contribute to your growth as a person.

Get out of the house! Stop missing out on things because you think the weather is bad or because your friends are busy. Good things can still happen with bad weather and you don't always need your friends to have a good time. If you're worried about other people's opinions on you being out by yourself, let me tell you a lil secret. They don't care about you as much as you think they do, so go out there and enjoy your day, because it's yours.

That's all for today, I hope you enjoyed this lil chit chat. Let me know what you'd like to see more of these types of posts!



  1. This is amazing!!!! I totally agree with #1, it's so important to have a lovely morning routine that puts you in a great, happy zone for the day. I actually recently decided to try and do some exercise every day (running, gymming etc) and I'm on day 5 so far and LOVING my new routine! I also bought some lovely body scrubs etc so that I can actually enjoy taking care of myself and start seeing it as a pleasure rather than a chore! Rashina xxxx

13 Hacks for Low Waste Air Travel | Lifestyle

One thing I often get asked when I travel is 'how do you travel low-waste?', so in today's post, I want to share what I've learnt about traveling sustainably. Often people forget that where they're going may have the biggest impact on sustainable travel. It's no secret that traveling by train is the greener option and should probably the first choice for travel if the destination is close, but if you're flying, here's ways to reduce your carbon footprint.
1. Before you leave 

Try to book a direct flight to save on carbon emissionsGo digital  - Download all tickets and refuse paper receipts (unless you need to keep info on paper). This also includes downloading entertainment, instead of buying books or magazines before your trip. Try and get the books secondhand or from the library. Travel light - People pack more than they will ever need to use or wear while on holiday. I try to travel using only carry on luggage by taking into consideration t…

My 3 Step Skincare Routine & Why I Don't Use Coconut Oil ☆

I wear makeup often. About four days out of the week, and I like to do a full coverage routine. It's a preference that I've had for ages as I feel like it just completes the whole makeup look but one thing about me is that I don't clean my brushes nearly as often as I should.  I've recently gotten in the habit of doing so because if I don't, I get horrible breakouts on my cheeks, nose and along my jaw. My skin type is oily and oily skin can also be very acne prone so breakouts are often unexpected. To keep them at bay, I  simplified my skincare routine. I've narrowed it down to three cruelty-free and zero waste products which I use almost daily. 

The first product is a facial soap from a zero waste store called Babongo. It's a Pine & Charcoal face soap which I use to cleanse my face  every morning and before I go to sleep. The product is completely natural which I love and maintains the oiliness of my skin. 

It was also packaged in paper packaging which i…

What's In My Travel Makeup Bag?! ♡

I was looking through some old posts for future inspiration and i came across my old post about what I keep with me when I travel. A lot has changed since that post regarding beauty and skincare and I'm excited to share it with you! As always, everything I own regarding beauty and most things I own regarding skincare (unless medicated) are cruelty-free or vegan. Here's what is in my current travel makeup bag, in the order that I apply my products!
Eyebrow Kit & Lashes

The Wet n Wild Eyebrow Kit in the shade 'Brunette' has been a holy grail in my makeup kit, not just when I travel. I love that it comes with two pressed eyebrow powders; a dark brown and a black. It includes a wax to set the hairs in place, a tweezer for any last minute fixes, a brush applicator to apply the product and a built in mirror for only €4.79 if you purchase it from BoozyShop. It's one of my favourite drugstore purchases and if you're looking for a new eyebrow product, this might be a …
