10 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD START JOURNALING NOW!

Hello, everyone! I hope you’re all doing well today!

This post will most likely, be falling into the “life” category of this blog lol. It is a topic that I’ve become quite passionate about, only because I’ve come to witness the impact that this small change has already made in my life, and that is journaling.

I’m sure we’ve all heard about it, read about it and probably even tried journaling at some point in our lives. But let’s just remove the whole stigma around the journals for a second. Forget regarding them as therapy diaries, forget regarding them as boring, pointless or un-impactful plain pages that nobody will actually read or use, and just hear me out. Whether you’re someone who doesn’t keep journals or someone who does and is interested in knowing more about why journals are very much in your favour. Here are my ten main reasons why I suggest you start journaling. Like, now (although you don’t have to, obviously, no but seriously).

1. Important Reminders of The Incredible and Humbling Moments of Your Life:

This is probably one of the most profound reasons why anyone should start journaling. But I just had to put this in here because it’s so true. There is no human out there that can just absorb valuable and mindful information without writing it down. Yes, we have planners, to do lists/books etc. However, those tools hold more of an academic influence. What more people need is a balancing notebook for them to actually be vulnerable and to record what’s most important and inspiring to them. Because we can forget things. I’m quite thankful for the things I’ve been writing down since I was around 14. Had I just not had those words written down on paper, to this day I would’ve neglected all of my simplified thoughts because life eventually takes over the free spirit we’ve all once had – so it’s a great way to keep it in some way.

2. An opportunity to study yourself!

Jounals are a chance to become your own scientist! I mean, not literally, unless you’re actually studying to become one. My point is, in life, you must know yourself! By knowing yourself I’m not talking about nick picking at what’s wrong because there isn’t anything wrong. This is just a great way to keep track of your own power and how to use it wisely.

Call this process what you like, but I quite like the concept of studying and learning more about one’s self. We can reveal new perspectives, new concepts, new ideas and new creativity which is a powerful force for personal growth.

3. A Chance to Elevate/Improve Your Writing Skills:

When I was little, I used to observe peoples handwriting and be in absolute awe of how different they would look compared to others. I think it says a lot about people and in my eyes, there is no good or bad handwriting. Everyone’s brings character to them and so I think to have an opportunity to practice, or improve the way you write is great! Yes, it’s a simple thing, but we write things down all the time and this in itself is an expression of individualism. I now enjoy spending hours writing because I enjoy the art of writing itself. Seems like a small change, but because of it, I’ve been writing a lot more in my spare time now and as well as helping me bring my thoughts to life, my writing skills are constantly improving.

4. Reduces Stress & Anxiety:

I’m not saying that this is the answer to all problems, but sometimes the only person that can listen to you is yourself. And how would you do that? By writing it down first then reading it over to yourself. You’ll later find that you won’t carry that exact same emotion reading it over as you did when you wrote it which, in turn, then helps you relieve stress. Pretty interesting if you ask me. It’s also a great way to look at situations without reacting to them. You’re now in a more open space where you can re-read your thoughts and decide whether you want to keep them due to how you’re feeling in the present.

5. Create a Vision Book Filled with Mood Boards of Your Life!

Whenever you pick up a journal and read it, you open a new portal of a judgment-free zone! This is your chance to write down all of those things you may have wanted when you were younger, write and pin down all the things you may have wanted to change, the things you may have wanted to create etc. Use, pictures, stickers, designs, letters, whatever you like! There’s no harm in keeping your dreams organised and keeping a journal is perfect for exactly that.

6. Become The Person You’ve Always Wanted to Be: Affirmations

This reason/step alone can be life-changing. It pretty much goes hand-in-hand with reason No.1 because then, you can create specific affirmations based on the personal information you’ve gained about yourself. The thing is, anything that is done consistently eventually becomes a reality. Not many people (including myself) are completely comfortable with waking up in the morning, hopping out of bed and saying out affirmations in the mirror (although that is amazing), nor do people even have the time to do so sometimes. However, having a list (yes, you will end up with a list) of affirmations and reading them silently each night is no different. because you’re essentially reading a book based on your life that is becoming. Which brings me to reason No.7!

7. You’ll Become An Established Author Of Your Own Life:

In your own right, you have, in fact, become a writer. Writing down your personal growth is one of the most courageous things one can do. You’ll have your own novels based on your life, volumes based on certain times of your life and a literal mark that you’d have left in this world. And better yet, YOU are the one who’s written it.

8. Record Your History, Your Achievements, and Lessons You’ll Later Pass On:

Journaling is by far one of the greatest ways to consistently organise your mind, build your personal intelligence and become more in tune and comfortable with yourself. We’re never, not learning something new. So wouldn’t it be great to pass on some of that knowledge? To our children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren or even a young person who seeks some personal grounding. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to re-visit my journal to answer a question that I had already answered years ago. We don’t actually realise the gold mines we’re sitting on until a wake-up call has to happen. So if I was to recommend a book for you to read in your life, It would be the one you wrote.

9.   The Impact It Will Have On Your Life Without You Even Realising it:

The main point I’d probably like for you to take away from this is that it’s not about writing full pages for 365 days a year. It’s literally to record those moments you know will later help you in the future. Just to keep on track of your mindset and desires without being influenced by an outer voice. Sometimes we can stop ourselves from our greatest opportunities which are just around the corner, by not reminding ourselves of whats really important in the moment it happens. It’s different for every individual and that is completely okay.

10. See Journaling Differently & How to Start Without Being Pressured To Write Every Day:

If you’re someone who may have struggled with journaling in the past or has been pushed away by the idea of committing (like I have), here is a tip that could hopefully change that. Every night when you come back from school/work or right before you go to bed, write down an experience you had that day (good or bad). We all go through a thoughtful realizations everyday but what writing it down will do is enable you to think differently each day. This will allow you to become allies with time and you will soon take those lessons you’ve learned into action. Not to mention, there’s no better time to write this than after a long day filled with experiences. See how it goes, if you miss a day – it’s completely fine because, with journaling, you’re sure to learn something new about yourself.

Phew, I know this was a long one but I hope this helped in some way. Sending virtual hugs your way if you actually read through all of my 10 reasons!

REVIEW: Irum Cosmetics 100% Pure & Organic Skincare

So this week I’ve had the opportunity to try out a couple of organic, skin care products from Irum Cosmetics! This vegan and cruelty-free brand currently feature two organic products on their site that they’ve kindly sent me to share my thoughts and review.

As someone who wears makeup more than often, I never go to bed without making sure my skin is at least cleansed or better yet treated as needed. For someone like me, it is extremely important to take the time to care for my skin, especially to ensure I have a smooth base for makeup application before anything else. With that being said, I’m thrilled to have tested, used and experienced these two main products from Irum Cosmetics, their Green Clay Mask Powder and their classic Pure and Organic, Argan Oil!

Green Clay Powder Mask £7.99

Contains 100g of Product

  • Vegan
  • Not Tested On Animals
  • Contains No added chemicals or preservatives
  • Ingredients: 100% Pure Green Clay (Bentonite)

Instructions:

Usage (for all skin types)

  1. Mix 1 tsp of clay with some water or Rosewater to make a thin paste
  2. Apply the paste onto face, skin and leave on for 15-20 minutes
  3. Wash off with lukewarm water

For external use only.

Some Benefits:

  • helps to reduce the outbreak of blemishes
  • Great for balancing oily skin
  • Absorbs waste such as harmful toxins and dirt
  • Deeply cleanses the skin
  • Helps Stimulate and improve blood circulation
  • Tightens and lifts the skin

I must quickly mention that the packaging is perfect for this powder mask! Seeing as it is powder, the product can get everywhere quite quickly. But with this jar I love how sealed it is even after use, making it easy for me to travel with it!

Application

So the application process was simple and easy as I used a clean plastic container or even the palm of my hand at times to quickly apply the product.

It has a refreshing, distinct smell (like green clay…..obvs, Stacy), but when applied for the first time I felt this cooling, self-distributing method going on, on my skin – it was lovely! Felt like a spa treatment, to be honest.

I evenly applied the product all over the face and I’d say within 10 minutes of waiting, I felt my face tightening up like crazy. It felt like some sort of facelift – like I myself was clay drying up into a statue. It’s clear the mask was certainly doing its job! 20 minutes then go by and I’m washing it off with lukewarm water as recommended. I also tried with cold water just because and both results wowed me!

My face looked and felt tightened yet incredibly lifted! my Mother even noticed a difference in the texture of my skin. It may sound odd but my face also felt lighter. The mask really did help rid of the impurities and oiliness that remained on my skin – definitely a weekly treatment that makes all the difference in texture! I enjoyed it.

Mini Rating

Application: 4/5

Drying: 5/5

Feeling and texture of the mask after 20 minutes: 4/5

Results: 5/5

My Thoughts

I fell in LOVE with the fact that this mask powder is extremely versatile. Instead of mixing just a few drop of water, you could also add, Aloe Vera, Rose Water, Honey, Cucumber Juice, Coconut for hydration, even Lavender, Cactus and so forth!

This has definitely got me hooked onto the powder mask train – will last longer and for sure give my skin the weekly treatment it needs! I personally think this product is great for anyone, especially any makeup wearers or those who spend a lot of time outdoors!

REVIEW: Skinny Coffee Club 28 NIGHT PROGRAM

Good Evening Everyone,

Due to the many requests for my thoughts on the Skinny Coffee Club: NIGHT EDITION, your wish was my command and so here, I’ve brought to you my in-depth review! **Drinks the coffee**

Skinny Coffee Club 28 DAY PROGRAM Mini Review:

As many of you know, I have a good relationship with Skinny Coffee Club’s 28 Day program. Though they are widely known for weight loss transformations, I personally use this coffee in my daily morning routines for maintenance as that’s been working well for me ever since. I’m obsessed with that coffee. It’s the only coffee I prefer black with no milk/almond milk that I think is lovely. If you’re a morning person, this coffee is perfect for you!

Skinny Coffee Club 28 NIGHT PROGRAM

It’s been a full week since I’ve received my Skinny Coffee Club 28 Night Edition and although it’s far from finished, I thought I’d share my experience with this coffee so far.

I’m on Day 7 and the first thing I have to say is: I’ve been getting good sleep! I no longer have trouble getting up in the morning (sounds funny, but seriously) I used to wake up with such heaviness in my body that even when my mind would be so motivated to get out of bed, my body wouldn’t get the memo.

Personally, I’m not fond of snoozes on a daily basis so when I can, I set my alarm to get up and start my day the minute it rings. Ever since last week I’ve been up without a problem, I’m not quite sure if this coffee is the reason why I get better sleep but, one thing I know for sure is that it is the ONLY thing that has changed in my night routine since. I’ve also noticed that this coffee holds fewer ingredients than the original, which is interesting.

Q&As:

Is it better to drink this coffee with milk or without milk? Personally, I like this coffee without milk. I sometimes drink the day coffee with milk but to be honest it’s based on personal preference for that time of the day.

Skinny Coffee Club does recommend you drink this plain but if you wish to add milk, they recommend you use coconut milk or almond milk. Regular milk is also fine as I’ve tried it before but I would like to mention almond milk adds that bit of flavour to it quite nicely. Clearly, this coffee is very versatile which I love.

What is the Skinny Coffee Club: 28 Night Edition supposed to do exactly? Raise your metabolism, burn fat and aid with digestion overnight.

Which is very much true, this week I feel, as well as have been told that I look slimmer. I used to have a bloating problem months before drinking Skinny Coffee Club. This has definitely changed things for me on that part, if not a little more effectively than the 28 Day program.

Is this coffee actually okay to drink at night? Absolutely! This organic, night coffee is formulated with all natural and calming ingredients. It did not affect my sleeping pattern at all.

Does this coffee have caffeine in it? Nope! The Night Edition Coffee is fully decaffeinated.

What’s something you like most about this coffee? I’d say it’s very calming yet also effective! I don’t know how it works in that sense but it seems to give me the best of both worlds; relaxing whilst raising my metabolism which I’ve noticed.

Balance: 4/5 This coffee does not have any caffeine in it so the taste is mellow yet the complexity is neutral and relaxing, I think it’s perfect for evenings

Aftertaste: 4.5/5 I love that it’s not too strong

Aroma: 5/5 Just lovely! This always puts me in the right mood to go to sleep haha

Body: 5/5 quite full and nourishing

My Overall Thoughts

Since this coffee is meant to be had at night, I find myself naturally gravitating towards this more than the Skinny Coffee Club 28 DAY program.

I always make time for a cup of tea, green tea or peppermint tea before bed as that’s just part of my night routine. With this night coffee, it feels exactly the same way, more relieving knowing it’s purpose.

If I were to recommend any Skinny Coffee Club package to anyone, I straight away mention the Night Edition. I feel like this can fit right into anyone’s night routine, since the days ended and you’d have enough time on your hands to relax and really get to enjoy the coffee!

Once again, Skinny Coffee Club brought out yet another lovely, convenient coffee suitable for any routine. And so far, I’m thoroughly enjoying it.

Our experts have worked tirelessly to provide you with the ultimate solution for quick, fast and effective weight loss in the tastiest way possible.

My Journey To A Healthier Lifestyle

It’s easy to lose track of your weight and fall of the grid subconsciously – I experienced weight gain and frequent headaches, the unhealthy foods I’d put in my body began to show all throughout my skin. I felt awful, probably the hardest thing I had to acknowledge was that this unlimited unhealthy diet I was pursuing was affecting me mentally. I would stay indoors for as much as possible and when I’d go out I’d wear the baggiest clothes I could find (not the stylish kind), knowing I wasn’t happy with my body nor myself in general. This small problem only grew bigger, it was either to find a solution or don’t move on at all. I am quite a determined person generally, so going through such a slow process was hard but yet eye opening. The thought of that only made me want to become a better version of myself, though I didn’t know where to start.

So I started blogging, which gradually gave me more confidence in my appearance and encouraged me to get out more and enjoy life more. Despite my new found happiness, I had a bloating problem which I struggled to get rid of. That is until I heard about @skinnycoffeeclub I’ve been drinking this coffee consistently for 2 weeks and I have to say I’ve had exceptional results. It was my first time trying out a 28-Day programme, however, it did not just help define, tone my body and revive me each morning- it also helped me mentally maintain a healthier routine in my lifestyle.

It’s infused with health properties such as green tea and ginseng, I’m basically getting the best of both worlds by drinking this coffee.

This has become such a must-have in my daily routine, the perfect essential towards my body goals this summer!

So to anyone who’s a body goal getter and a coffee lover, I highly recommend this to you!

MAKEUP LOOK: The Natural Glow

image

Lately, I’ve been sporting a more ‘natural’ look in preparation for summer just to enhance my facial features without full coverage makeup a touch of illuminator on the highest points of my cheeks and I’m good to go! I think during spring/summer months it’s always lovely to have a more light-weight feel to your makeup on the skin.

There are plenty of different no-makeup makeup styles, it’s really up to personal preference and how you want to customise your look to fit your look. It’s just about knowing what works best for you.

 

image

Here’s a product listing of what I use to achieve my version of the natural, radiant look.

SKIN:

for primer, I normally add a good layer of moisturiser, however, if I want a more boost of radiance to my skin I’ll mix in an illuminator.

I start with L.A. Girl’s Pro Concealer in the colour correcting shade to even out my skin tone. this makes the coverage process quicker as opposed to adding layers of foundation.

For coverage, I like to pinpoint my foundation on areas of my face that I feel needs a bit of it, using Stila’s Stay all day foundation.

for brightening under my eyes I dotted L.A. Girl’s HD Pro Concealer and buffed it upwards to give a seamless finish.

I set where needed with MAC’s MSF to help keep the glow throughout my skin. I do, sometimes add a highlight and contour powder to give back some dimension, though I recommend a hydrating facial spray to get rid of any powder residue.

lastly, on the skin, I highlighted with a cream illuminator. Any cream eyeshadow also works well, for more details on how I use a cream highlighter on my face makeup see my previous blog post.

EYES:

this step is very optional, but I like to add a liner to my eyes without winging them out to give the appearance of bigger eyes.

I then add coats of mascara to lift my eyelashes.

 

LIPS:

This may sound out of the norm, but I like to place a little bit of L.A. Girl’s Colour Corrector on the centre of my lips, cheeks and nose for an ‘awake’ appearance. I love this product since it is orange and pink would be more forward on my skin, plus it is intended to even out dark so it naturally evens out my cheeks whilst adding colour.

image

Hope this gives a bit of inspiration to your glow-on-the-go looks this summer!

Lots of love,

Stacy.

GLOSSY LIDS

So I finally got round to trying out the glossy lid look. A popular trend right now where you use eye gloss or even lipgloss (what I used) on your lids to create an ethereal glow to your makeup.

image

 I will say this is more editorial rather than a wearable out-the-door makeup but depending on what type of look you’re going for – the “undone” eyes is also a stylish trend.


To create this was quite simple. Very straightforward and easy to customise to what you want.

First, I’d advise an eye primer (not that it’ll change the fact that it will crease and slide) but this will help with the eyeshadow stay in place whilst applying the gloss. In terms of what shade, that’s optional.

For my look, I went with a red/orange colour “Burnt Orange” from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette and blended this on the lids only.

image
image

The gloss:

To be honest, I think any gloss is fine to use. At the end of the day, it’s makeup and you can use it as to what you see fit – you can get creative with it.

I used a sheer pink gloss purposely because I wanted a pink hue around my lids. Doing so, I dispensed the gloss applicator across my makeup palette and used a fluffy synthetic eyeshadow brush (which I highly recommend) to pat-and-swipe quickly across the lids. This helps give an even coverage since we’re working with liquid.

I also did the same thing for my highlighter (note: I had already applied cream highlight prior) but took a beauty blender, dabbing into the gloss residue on the palette and quickly but lightly patted it onto my cheekbones, down the nose a little on the side of my forehead + cheeks slightly.

image

This is a look I think anyone can pull off. You can start small by adding a little gloss to a “no makeup, makeup look” or even adding gloss to a smokey eye.

The glossy lids look is not intended to be long-lasting, but is fun to try and get creative with.

I also tried this with a matte red lip

image

Hope this post gives a little inspo.

Lots of love,

Stacy xx

MINI REVIEW: Lacura Skincare Serum

I’m absolutely loving these beauty serums from the #lacuraskincare 2016 Beauty Advent Calendar by @aldiuk #day6 #Voguejanuaryissue

As instructed, I use each phial twice a day (morning and evening, before bed) and my skin has had nothing but great results.

My skin feels more hydrated, plumped and tighter (in a good way). I’ll definitely by trying their full-size serums. If you’re looking for an affordable skin serum/moisturiser, I recommend Aldi’s Lacura Skincare. You can purchase their serums in Aldi.

REVIEW: Erno Laszlo Timeless Skin System

image

This review is not sponsored.

I’ve always been obsessed with skincare and the luxury of a good regimen. However, for a long time, I felt I didn’t have the right products to keep my skin blemish free.

In the past, I’ve suffered from acne scarring and clogged pores; It was this month I decided to look into finding the best solution for my skin regimen. Going back to about a year ago, I was browsing on the Net-A-Porter website. I would always check the ‘what’s new’ tab and refine it to the ‘beauty’ section. From there, I’d go onto ‘skincare’ and look at almost everything that was listed. That is when I first came across the Erno Laszlo skin care range.

Founded by the late Dr Laszlo in 1927, Erno Laszlo was the first dermatologist to develop a skin care ‘Cleansing Ritual’ which he appropriately named the most iconic cleansing system in the world with a long list of clients from Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe and more.

I decided to try the products I remembered stood out to me the most. Their Sea Mud Deep Cleansing Bar, part of their Timeless Skin System. This bar is made using 97% natural ingredients, meant to hydrate and restore the skins mineral levels. While gently exfoliating your skin to remove dead cells, resulting in the brighter looking skin. Erno Laszlo also has a line of different bars for different skin types, retailing for around £39. The Deep Cleansing Bar definitely caught my eye. Having looked at many reviews as possible on it, I could not find a review giving this a thumb down. I then convinced myself to go for it and buy the bar. At the time (this was about 2 weeks ago) The Net-A-Porter website had run out of stock of the bar so my lazy-self forgot about it. The next day my mother and I were shopping in TK Maxx. I normally always go to the beauty section to see if there’s anything on offer worth buying. For the first time, I actually came face to face with part of the Erno Laszlo collection. As well as a couple of individual products like their serums and toners. On the shelf were a couple of different skincare sets, I then picked up the box with the Sea Mud Deep Cleansing Bar on the picture packaging filled with excitement and bought this set for just £12.99 which are a snippet on the rrp price. Considering the Erno Laszlo’s price range, I thought that was a steal!

After yapping to my mother about how this happened on the way home, I took the box again and started reading about the second product I received In the set. In this box was a full-size Sea Mud Deep Cleansing Bar (150g) that comes in a glossy white and black, plastic container (suitable for travelling). And the Phelityl Pre-Cleansing Oil (200ml). I noticed the Pre-Cleansing Oil while browsing the line although, I didn’t think much of it at the time.

image

 

This duo is called the ‘Anti-Ageing Ritual’ designed for both products to basically work together, helping your skin achieve the ‘Laszlo Glow’.

Following the instructions on the box; Prep, Cleanse, Splash. I First apply a small amount (a little goes a long way) of The Pre-Cleansing Oil onto the palm of my hand, using both hands to massage the product on my dry face. It is also designed to be optionally used as an oil based makeup remover. I remove my makeup with wipes prior, as that’s just my preference.

Once the oil is distributed all over my face, I run the Sea Mud Deep Cleansing Bar under lukewarm water and massage the soap all over my face – avoiding eyes and lips.

I then rinse off the product by splashing my face with cold water to close up my pores. Following up with a toner and moisturiser to finish off my routine.

The first time I used this, my skin instantly felt clean and lifted. I’ve been using this for 2 weeks and usually when I test a new skin care product, whether it gives me breakouts or not I like to give my skin time to get used to the product before I can tell if it’s good for me or not.

With this duo, I did receive a couple spots, however, the next day they were dried out and ready to come off my skin. I will say the bar does a great job at deep cleaning, as those spots were caused by the dirt build up. The oil and bar fully extracted all the dirt build up. The end result was an exceptionally clean face.

Using this bar daily, I don’t even need an exfoliating product – that’s how purifying the bar is without being too harsh on my skin.

As a person who wears makeup all the time, I wanted something to clean my skin in a way that’ll clean out my pores without drying my skin. I have combination to normal skin, and with a hydrating moisturiser, I will say my skin has gotten a lot better and had no issues with these products at all.

Although I did purchase this set on a deal I would (and will) repurchase this product again at full price because I think it is worth it. It’s very effective on the skin which I like – and I can understand this coming as a duo with the Pre-Cleansing Oil as that’s what helps keep your skin nourished while cleaning your face.

image

 

If you have been looking for an effective cleanser or if you’ve been on the hunt for a simple yet nourishing oil for your face to prep for cleansing, I’d say this is the product for you.

Or if you’ve also recently discovered Erno Laszlo and just wanted to see a review on a couple of their products, I highly recommend you try them out.

I absolutely love the fact that nowadays I see myself actually looking forward to doing my skincare routine every morning and night. these products do have a luxurious feel to them, giving me and my skin less stress to worry about what to use or if I’m using the right product.

My skin feels great after using this set and I will be looking into more of the Erno Laszlo range.

“I owe 50% of my beauty to my mother and the other 50% to Erno Laszlo.” –Audrey Hepburn.
