Minimalism and Mental Health

Image
You may have noticed over the past couple of week's I've shared a couple of posts about decluttering, minimalising and organising my house. I've actually really enjoyed doing it and I feel so much more accomplished now that everything is so much better arranged and put together. It's been a lot of hard work and time but for me at least it's been completely rewarding and satisfying.

Today, I thought I'd quickly touch upon a couple of things I have been thinking about having minimalised my bedroom and bathroom. A lot of it is to do with my new found mindset but most importantly, mental health. 
Mental health is a level of psychological well-being. It is defined as a "psychological state of someone who is functioning at a satisfactory level of emotional and behavioral adjustment". From the perspective of positive psychology or holism, mental health may include an individual's ability to enjoy life, create a balance between life activities and efforts…

30 Blogging Ideas!

Image
I never seem to have nothing to say, especially here on my blog. In fact I have so many ideas I have to hold them back!

I have so many posts scheduled to go up in advance because I go through phases where I just can't stop writing.  But I've seen so many people asking, what should I write so I thought I would throw together a quick list of 30 blogging ideas.

MONQ: Personal Diffuser! (Review)

Image
OKBaby's Kyra, a vlogger that I follow on YouTube, has been loving MONQ recently and after entering a competition she shared on Instagram, I couldn't get them out of my head! I finally took the leap and bought a couple for myself and I fell in love.

MONQ is a company that offers a unique product that I've never seen anywhere else. Unlike topical oils or household diffusers, MONQ is enhanced for convenience in the modern age. They offer the most direct form of aromatherapy with their MONQ Personal Diffuser allowing you to exhale therapeutic air wherever you are. This method allows immediate access to the therapeutic air, allowing the ancient wellness art of aromatherapy.

MONQ uses 100% naturally extracted and organic essential oils, harvested from eco-friendly farms across the world. Their essential oils are the highest quality, so that every breath is effective. Safety is their top priority so out of caution they recommend only people over 18 years of age should use them.

#FabNightIn with Louise Pentland, Lindsey Kelk and Paige Toon!

Image
I had so much fun at a book signing event last week! Louise Pentland, Lindsey Kelk and Paige Toon united together at The Stables at Proud Camden. Thanks to Fabulous Magazine, I had an amazing night out celebrating some incredible authors in one of the most organised events I've ever been too!

Click here to watch the vlog and hear the author answering some questions, or see below.
When I arrived at the event, I was greeted by a lovely team of people who took pictures on arrival and welcomed everyone with a choice of champagne, orange juice or a fizzy cordial. It was all very glamourous with champagne flutes and even a photographer snapping pictures!

We were quickly taken into a room with the stage and red chairs, to be seated ready for the question and answer section. As we all waited, canapes were brought around the room thanks to the very attentive staff who were always on hand and offering. There was an incredible array of choices and I heard nothing but sounds of yumminess thr…

The 100 - Season 4 Review!

Image
After falling in love with the book trilogy, I quickly became just as addicted to the first season of The 100.
The series is set 97 years after a devastating nuclear apocalypse wiped out almost all life on Earth. It begins in space where many escaped the world and have lived on The Arc for years. After realising supplies will soon run out, the difficult decision is made to send 100 juvenile prisoners to Earth to check for safety. For the last 3 years, we've watched them survive against all odds and create a life for themselves, albeit not the easiest.

After the slightly clumsy storytelling of season 3 and my mother's suggestion that season 4 wasn't great, I was expecting the worst but I absolutely loved this season. Unlike other shows who almost play it safe after a season that didn't receive the highest praise, The 100 does the opposite.

I really thought they tied in multiple storylines and characters that were introduced in the previous seasons but in a much deeper w…

What's in my Bag?!

Image
I have never written a post about what's in my bag and I thought it as about time that I did!

My favourite bag that I use most days is this small navy bag from TK Maxx, the perfect cheap alternative to any high end bag. I love it because it's small and compact but it can actually fit a surprisingly amount and a large sheer volume of stuff in. I love that it has so many pockets and compartments allowing division of sections to keep items separated.
In the front third is one big pocket. Here I keep an umbrella and my sunglasses on hand at all time. I also keep a bag full of important goodies. In here, I have a hand sanitiser, a pack of chewing gum, a couple of plasters and a small nail file. I call it my emergency bag!

In the middle section, I usually have a cardigan in if I'm not already wearing one. My most loved cardigan fits in easily. I also keep a bottle of water always and my purse. If I'm going out for a long day, I tend to take some snacks or a packed lunch for …
