Why I'm No Longer Listening To Instagram Advice

Before I really delve into this post, Instagram is an app which I have loved since I first downloaded the app in 2014. I love sharing photos from my photo album, being inspired by my favourite creators with their wonderful images and talent and just liking photos in general! Yet I've gotten to a stage where I think Instagram has descended it's hate onto my profile. It's not showing my photo on my follower's feeds, hashtags don't work for me (even the ones that used to work for me in the past) and no matter how much I communicate with others on the app, Instagram doesn't seem to appreciate that. Sigh. Here's the thing though guys - I really don't care anymore. Ok, it does sound like I care a little, but honestly, I don't care half as much as I used to.

Reflecting On A Year In Lockdown

This last twelve months has been similar to doing the Hokey Cokey. We've been in, out, in, out and shaking it all about. Before going back in again. 

We've reached the point that it was over a year ago that the first lockdown was announced and we were told to stay at home. All of us thinking that this lockdown was going to be the one and only lockdown. By the Summer, we were going to go back to our normal lives and Covid would have been a distant memory. Oh how wrong we were.

PMD Clean Body: A Review

Who doesn't love a new skincare device?! Especially one that has FOUR functions in one device.

Back last year, I reviewed the PMD Clean and it's a device that has benefitted my skin so much and I swear it has stopped some of the acne that would have appeared on my face if I had not used it.

Tips To Stay Safe On Staycation

*This post is sponsored. Please see the end of the post for more details. 

Everyone is itching to get on the travel websites and book their next holiday or break away. Actually, thinking about it, a lot of people have already booked their first trip away post Covid. But even if we are allowed to book holidays, Covid is still around and it's vital for us to keep ourselves and others safe when we go away anywhere.

What are my staycation plans I hear you ask? I have a (rebooked) trip to Liverpool for August. This trip was meant to happen in March 2020 and I have rebooked it three times since so I'm praying my backside off that it still happens. You just never know anymore, do you?!

My Weird Self Care Habits

*Post contains previous PR items. See the end of the post for more details. 

Self care is something that is constantly promoted by blogger's, the media, health professionals and even through family and friends.

There's no limit to the amount of self care habits you choose to have in your self care routine and every person's self care habits and routine are different to suit that person's needs, physically and mentally. Self care habits don't have to be short terms fixes such as a bubble bath or reading a book, it can be a long term fix such as establishing a self care routine for yourself and your personal needs.

How To Spring Clean Your Life

Please see the end of the post for more details.

It's that time of year where we start to think about spring cleaning our homes, whether it's hoovering under the sofas, flipping the mattresses (a monstrous task), clearing the shed out or sorting out the cupboard under the stairs (Yes, people still have those!). 

But instead of telling you to get the Dettol or your Dyson out, I want to talk to you about how to spring your life.
