Summer Goals

Every now and then I find it quite refreshing to consider the type of person I am, in comparison to who I'd like to be, and attempt to figure out what I could do in order to move a few steps closer to that person. So I decided to set myself a few little goals for this Summer and maybe beyond

- Get out my sketchbook more. Try to draw each day, even if only for 10 minutes. I sometimes let myself forget how much I love art, and what good things painting and drawing do for my head.

- Meditate, I've recently been using my headspace app and I've been feeling great for it.
- Try out new healthy recipes, be more conscious of what I'm eating
- Take my camera out, take photos, practice taking photos, and scrapbook
-Run outside a few times a week
- Save money
- Blog more lifestyle
- Write more
- Read more

 -Spend more time outdoors
 -Sort my room, go through things, give to charity
- Start listening to new music
- Catch up with old friends
- Take better care of my skin
- Fall in love with a new hobby
- Vlog - I love vlogging, I think it's a great way to save memories, however I do not do it nearly often enough
- Get back into sewing

- Get up earlier, make the most of each day, be productive
 - Dress well - I find feeling as though I look good leads to feeling good
- Practice Crochet - I've taught myself to crochet, it's something I want to improve on and continue doing.

Hopefully, I'll somewhat be able to stick to these goals. What are you planning this Summer?

The Body Shop Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser

I've been looking for a new moisturiser for a while as I felt mine wasn't quite cutting it. So, when I started to see this one appear in the blogging world, I had to try it. I've been using this product for a while now, and I have to got to say, I can see a difference in my skin. I suffer which quite dry skin, which means often I find my make up clinging to dry patches, not a great look. However since I've been using this my make up has been apply smoother and my skin doesn't appear quite so dull. 

This product has quite a thick gel like texture to it, so I expected it to feel heavy on the skin, however it sinks into the skin pretty fast, so you can apply make up almost immediately after moisturising, which is great if you're in a rush. 

This moisturiser has a slight citrus scent to it, which makes me think of summer! When you apply it I find to can feel it sink into the skin  as it gives the skin a slightly tingle while it absorbs. This is something I personally like, I find it reassuring to know the product is there and working - it also makes it quite refreshing to use, giving me an extra boost on those early, tired mornings.

I like the packaging to this product. I much prefer moisturiser in a pot, rather than a squeezy tube because I find it's less messy and you can get to the product easier. Also the orange glass jar looks nice enough on my bedside table which is always a bonus. 

Being summer time I feel slightly disappointed that there is no SPF in this product, other than that I think I have found my new go to moisturiser. 

Have you tried this product? I'd love to hear what you think!
