I’m usually a person who likes to write her blog posts and post them on the same day.
But sometimes you need to schedule some in amongst other things too.
I am going to schedule posts this week for Tuesday, Friday and Saturday. If my creative juices are flowing I may have some up for the following week too. If not please bear with me while I recover from my operation.
I thought I’d find some pins that’ll help you with the scheduling process too.
I can’t credit the owner as the pins were pinned 🙈
Hope you find them helpful. You could even print them out if you like.
Since most of us at Christmas are super stressed and we want everything to be perfect for this one special day which we call Christmas. I thought I would go researching and here are some tips to help you enjoy it and still have hair on your head by the end of it.
- Fork out the address book and hopefully your bought Christmas cards (you best go buy some if you haven’t) – a little secret buy next years after Christmas to save pennies.
- Write the cards , get stamps and send them off before the cut off date(check the post office website for details) – deliver if they are local.
- Make an inventory of what you have in the cupboard and what you think you need to feed the mouths of your guests at Christmas. Then go out and find your bargain buys at the supermarket.
- Create a gift list and buy what they would like not what you think they may like as it may be end up being an unwanted present. Don’t lose the receipts.
- Get the tree out the attic/loft or go purchase one and go absolutely mad with the decorations – show your creative streak.
- Go to Christmas fayres and get into the Christmas spirit
- Blast out a Christmas playlist and sing your heart out and dance round like a loon.
- Make sure you have enough wrapping paper and then get on and wrap your gifts. For the lazy bums enough gift bags.
- Sort out arrangements for the big day, lighten the load and help each other along.
- Open the door to a Christmas caroller even if they sound like a strangled cat, they are trying their best. pop them a pound or what you can spare for their charity and on their way they go.
- Go visit elderly friends and relatives, sometimes they are left on the back burner because they’ve endured so many Christmases. Elderly people get sad this time of year so make someone smile this Christmas.
- Make sure you have got the mince pies cos they are yummy and obviously Santa likes them too ha ha
- Put on your favourite Christmas Film, light the fire, put some candles on, wrap up in a blanket and enjoy.
Merry Christmas xx

For a few months I just kept seeing so many influencers and YouTubers using these facial rollers and I caved in and thought I want to try one they look fun.
So I went and found myself one on my old trusty amazon
Mine is a Rose Quartz one, you can get Jade ones that are green and apparently they work differently.
A Jade roller revitalises the skin, wakes it up, makes your sluggish skin into stunning skin
A Rose Quartz roller on the other hand is full of minerals such as silcium, magnesium and Iron.
🌺 The silcium (silica) helps the elasticity in your skin
🌺 The magnesium helps relieve muscle spasms and helps headaches and sinus problems
🌺 The Iron helps regulate blood circulation and eliminates fatigue
So you can see why I chose the Rose Quartz over the Jade.
I guess the Jade one could be used in the morning and the Rose Quartz for the evening.
I find putting mine in the fridge adds a nice cooling effect to the skin.
Here’s the link to mine (I’m not sponsored or affiliated I just think it’s a fab product)
ROSE QUARTZ FACIAL ROLLER
Have any of you used one of these and have you seen any benefits from it?

Some of us just get out of bed with no routine, no real action plan and that’s absolutely fine. But adding these things to your morning will make it great believe me.
I especially like number 10. Music always gets me pumped.
I may make a evening one soon 😁

I never used to be organised, I would just shove stuff in a drawer or at the bottom of the wardrobe until I couldn’t fit anything else in then it was a case of having to sort it out. But as I have matured a bit over the years I think that nothing is worse than living in chaos.
So I have come up with some things that I like to keep on top of to make me feel like I have my shit together.
❤️Organise closet/cupboard/wardrobe wherever you put your clothes. I find putting them in sections of colour is gonna so when you are feeling red for example you can go to your red items and take your pick. Alternatively you can have one end for best and the other end for casual
❤️Making time for a Morning/evening routine. You don’t need a long list of things just some essentials that will make your day/night easier
❤️Sort apps on phone into folders -it’ll keep it looking tidy and you’ll know where all the necessary ones are
❤️Use a notepad or planner to make the most out of your day, with to do lists, meal plans, places to go and people to see.
❤️Delete unwanted photos/messages/numbers on your phone to free up space.
❤️If you can clean as you go, if not allocate some time in your day to do it instead of letting it all mount up. Delegate your load with others in the house if you don’t live alone.
❤️Keep tabs on your spending so you can see what you are getting that you need and can be justified as a reasonable buy and those that aren’t need to be cut back so you’ll have some savings for a rainy day.
❤️Keep your bedroom as spotless as you can as this is for relaxing and unwinding.
❤️Declutter anything that serves you no purpose anymore ( I’ll do another post on this soon. )
❤️Pack bag, food and outfit for the next day the night before do you won’t be faffing about in the morning.
I hope you can use these in your daily life to make it less stressful

Don’t you hate it when you wake up and you have dark circles through lack of sleep or that unwanted spot that just lands on your face. I know there are worst things in life, but it’ll make you feel so much more confident if you can conceal them.
So I’ve come up with 4 concealers that are very much raved about and I also have some tips to help
COLLECTION LASTING PERFECTION CONCEALER
At £4.19 this is the cheapest one I’m going to mention. You can find it at Boots and Superdrug It really does help conceal the dark circles and definitely helped cover redness but not my spots. Not to say it won’t help yours. It comes in a range of shades too.
REVOLUTION CONCEAL AND DEFINE CONCEALER
This one is a dupe for another one I’m going to mention that’s a bit pricey, this one is a fraction of the price at £5 from either Superdrug or Beauty Bay. It gives a full coverage which I like. You can get these in two different sizes as well if you tend to use a lot of concealer.
L’ORÉAL INFAILLABLE MORE THAN CONCEALER
This one is new out and I’ve been using it for about a month and I don’t have any intention of switching back. It has concealed my dark circles, my troublesome spots and any redness I get. It is £9.99 but I’d rather spend a tiny bit more to get a good result and fingers crossed it’ll last a few months.
TARTE SHAPE TAPE
At a steep £23. 00 the Tarte Shape Tape concealer does all the revolution concealer does but with a brand which all products come with a hefty price tag. I believe you can only get Tarte from America so people are selling them for £31.00 on Ebay. You’re silly if you wanna spend that and you don’t even know if it’s a knock off.
Those colour correction sets that come with all those different colours in them have uses for different skin complaints so I’ve found this down below that explains which colour helps what.
Also here is the places to apply your concealer to get the best results.
I also put a stripe down my nose only because I find if I don’t my foundation rubs off.
I hope you found this post informative and let me know if you have tried any others I haven’t named and you think they are worth a try.
