Tips for Your Tresses

When I was about twelve years old, I started dying my hair. I was never really happy with the dirty blonde colour my hair used to be and I decided that brunette was the colour for me. As soon as I started dying my hair I had people telling me it would look like straw, go thinner, look horrible etc. I dye my hair every one to three months and I’ve done this since I started and I can proudly say that my hair is soft, shiny and healthy. So away with peoples negative comments. Katie has got you covered with tips on hair care whether you have coloured hair, your natural colour, long, short or whatever.

My Plans to Bloom in Spring

This post is suuuper late but it's still spring so I thought I'd post it! Monthly goals just don't work for me and yearly goals seem to take ages to complete so I thought I'd use the seasons to set out my goals. They usually last about three months which seems a good amount of time to achieve something in. There are three sections mind, body and soul. Mind is all about stuff to do with having a clear head. Body is to do with my health and fitness. Soul is kind of all across the board - just stuff that makes my lil soul happy.  Anyway, let's get to the juicy bits.

Planning a Productive Day

We strive to always have productive days where we can look at our to-do list and see all the boxes ticked off and tuck ourselves into bed feeling accomplished and fulfilled. However, this is sadly hardly ever the case, for me anyway. I write myself these massive lists of tasks to get done before the day is out and I start the day with a mind full of motivation and a mouthful of coffee - then it slowly fizzles out. But never fear because I have some (almost) failsafe tips to ensure that your day is full of ticked boxes and smug smiles.

Real Talk: Has 10k Steps a Day Changed Me?

During the month of March, I signed up to do the Cancer Research Walk All Over Cancer Challenge. This charity is one very close to my heart as people in my family have been affected by this disease, including my amazing Mom. I wanted to do something to help other people but also help myself. At first the thought of ten thousand steps everyday aka 310,000 steps in a month terrified me and I was worried I wouldn’t be able to pull through. However, I managed it and I am so proud of myself.

Start Making Changes in Life

A lot of us may have things about our life that we'd like to change. Whether that is to do with our fitness, lifestyle or attitudes. Often we have good intentions but no idea on how to kick-start the changes we want to make. Never fear though, Katie is here to help you get your bum into gear and start smashing goals. 


5 Podcasts that Make Life Better

I only found the podcast world in mid-2017 and let me tell you, it has been life-changing. I always stick a podcast on while I'm on the train to uni or trying to get to sleep. When I first looked on the app I didn't realise just how many different podcasts there was. As I'm on my little life improvement journey the section I go to is lifestyle and health. I think podcasts are amazing because they're like a video you don't have to make the effort to watch - if you get me.

New Additions with Photowall*

*Disclaimer: Photowall kindly gifted me this product in exchange for an honest review. All views are my own in this post.

I am such a lover of decor, I am always on the prowl for new pieces to stick in my room. I love my room to have decor in it that mirrors who I am. I think it's so important to create a space surrounded by things that bring you joy. It makes you feel so much better in your environment. When Photowall asked me to work with them I was so excited! I immediately hopped onto their site and found the perfect canvas for my room. My print is one with constellations on that says 'Never Stop Shining'. I loved this print because I have an obsession with the stars and motivational quotes and this print was them two mixed together.  

A Breakup with Makeup

Breakups can be difficult but this one has been a long time coming. For a while now, I've found myself just falling out of love with makeup. I just don't enjoy putting it on anymore - it seems like such a chore. There are multiple reasons why I've stopped enjoying makeup and I'm going to talk about them in this post.
