    New Year

      The beginning of a new year means a lot of things to a lot of different people, it means the beginning of a new chapter and a new book all together. The time for New Years resolutions to be made and broken! To me a new year is a opportunity to reflect on your life and to appreciate the amazing experiences and opportunities you’ve had and to make the most of them. It’s a time to dream of new adventures and possibilities that are on their way! I’ve never really been one for making resolutions that I will most definitely break.

    #1 Aya Balm

    Let’s talk about skincare, natural skincare without chemicals. Ever since I’ve started blogging I’ve become a little bit obsessed with skincare. I’ve been trying to find all the products that compliment my skin and keep it hydrated. Natural skincare has always been an interest of mine, I use a homemade facial spray and makeup remover (which will be up in a DIY post soon). I’ve always tried my best to stick to skincare that doesn’t have too many chemicals and that won’t strip your skin of all its natural oils and good properties.

    Clean brushes = Healthy skin

      If you are like me then you apply all your makeup using brushes, I have a brush (or maybe a few) for every different product.
