Lets talk about… life

Good Morning World!

“What do you want to do when you grow up?” a question that always seemed to haunt me as a child. It was a frequently asked question by teachers, parents and friends and even from a young age I never knew the answer. I was surrounded by children who been dreaming of becoming a doctor or a fireman since they could walk but my response still remained blank. I never had an answer to fill in the gaps.

As I got older this question continued to be in the back of mind, I had to choose a career otherwise I couldn’t make live happily. Not knowing seemed to be my biggest downfall as I couldn’t make decisions that will benefit that career pathway and I had no drive to do well, as metaphorically speaking, there was no light at the end of the tunnel. This meant that when choosing my GCSE options, A-level options and University course I let my parents choose and I was then led down the path they wanted me to take, which made me feel even less in control of my own life.

This question still ponders in my mind, however the wondering is getting smaller after realising my true potential. After finishing Sixth Form I decided to take a gap year before attending university, as I still didn’t know what I wanted out of life, I had applied to a university I didn’t want to attend to do a subject I didn’t want to study. I can tell you, that this was the best decision I have ever made. In September this year I started working full time at a Private Care Home, and although this can be a truly satisfying job it isn’t what I wanted to do. I became so aware at the extent in which I missed my school years, how I missed staying up late at night finishing homework and writing essays the day before they’re due; I missed having something to do besides going into work.

I then enrolled to do several online university courses on a website called futurelearn.com, these courses last for several weeks and work like school. They require you to do you’re homework and hand everything in on a deadline. I have already completed a course in Psychology and got over 95%. These courses have been satisfying my need to learn in the time being.

Then I realised when looking back how much the school system contributed to who I am. I don’t mean that on a cringy level, but even as a child I use to really enjoy doing my homework or working on a project, so much so that I would run schooling classes for my parents and brother to attend. I would have so much fun creating lesson plans and timetables, and my favourite part about my little school was marking the test papers. This is when, as cliché as it sounds, I realised my pathway in life. I want to be a teacher!

Since realising this I have been looking at different universities around the country and trying to find the one that will best suit what I want out of life. I feel more in control of my life and I finally have an answer to one of my unanswerable questions.

Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Clay Mask

Good Morning World!

dsc_1027

I am now yet another blogger raving about how important it is to take care of your skin, and despite how much I support this statement I am in no shape or form a role model for this. Recently however, I have been getting back into the swing of things and using more products that will help clear my skin of imperfections. Normally I am not one to get spots but the past month or so my skin has been an utter nuisance which has been my biggest motivation to improve my skin care routine.

Today I am going to be talking about the Body Shop’s tea tree oil clay mask. I was firstly introduced to this product by a very good friend of mine while having a girly evening doing our nails and face. She told me how much this product had changed her skin for the better and how she swears by this product. After using it for the first time that night I noticed how much my skin benefited and how soft it felt immediately after using it.

Then whilst having a day trip to Winchester with my boyfriend I purchased this face mask. I have been using it for over a month now, and I have seen a significant difference in the appearance and the ‘softness’ of my skin. The mask claims to be skin clearing and purifying and I 100% agree with this statement, I find that it fights spots and the look of imperfections on my skin. This makes it a must-have for my skin care routine. I tend to use this mask once a week, or maybe twice depending on the look of my skin.

This face mask used tea tree oil which does wonders for your skin when used in small doses. It works by triggering your body to produce natural oils that can rid your skin of impurities, however when used in large doses it can overproduce these oils and make your acne worse. This product is therefore good when used in moderation, don’t overuse it as you’ll end up making your skin worse.

I would highly recommend this product for anyone who is looking for a good face mask that works.

Autumn Attire

Good Morning World!

As the new season has arisen it is only fitting to hit the stores and accumulate loads more Autumnal clothing that you have convinced yourself that you need. I may have just done that, I spent one afternoon putting together an outfit made entirely of Topshop clothing. I am personally so in love with this outfit that I kid you not wear nothing else (maybe a slight exaggeration but this is my go-to outfit choice).

This outfit is made up of a pair of standard denim Jamie Jeans, a long sleeved high neck white bodysuit and a beautiful cross coloured cardigan which I live in. I feel this look gives off a chic guide without trying too hard. Not only does it provide comfort and warmth which is a must have for an Autumn wardrobe, but gives a stylish impression.

I hope you love this beginning of October look as much as I do.
