Hi guys. So this is a little random but I really wanted to share it in case any of you have the same problems.
I suffer from really bad migraines. I think there are a lot of things that trigger them, one of which is probably working in front of a computer screen 8.5 hours a day, 6 days a week, but I think that the main issue is the amount of caffeine I consume…. It’s a lot. I’m mostly a tea drinker but I tend to have a few coffees at work too, especially when the girls bring in super cool flavours like chocolate and caramel (omg yum). I literally have about 20 cups of tea a day, as well as one or two bottles of Pepsi and a few coffees thrown in for good measure. THIS IS NOT GOOD FOR ANYONE LET ALONE ME WITH MY STUPID MIGRAINES.
So I decided that, after the worst head pains I’ve had in ages, I should maybe try and cut down on my daily caffeine intake. I really like hot drinks but find hot chocolates and other malty drinks too sickly and decaffeinated tea and coffee are just wrong on so many levels (forgot to mention I’m also pretty fussy when it comes to drinks haha).
So I went to Tesco to gave a look at their groovy tea collection. I was there for ages but settled on the Pukka Cleansing Tea with nettle, fennel and peppermint, which claims to help cleanse the skin and calm you, etc. not gonna lie, I wasn’t expecting much as I hadn’t really liked any spiced/minty/fruity teas I’d bought in the past.
This tea is AMAZING. I have literally drank so much of it. It’s not bitter like I find most of these types of teas to be and it’s also not overpowering in any way. It smells and tastes great and I will totally be buying this again on a regular basis (at the rate I’ve been drinking it). I’ve also noticed my skins looking a lot more glowy and my headaches have not been as intense or as often which is sooooo relieving!
Seriously, if you’re looking for a good cleansing tea, try this. I guarantee you will not be disappointed!
I totally forgot how long winded/difficult it was to get everything together for UCAS. This time I’m applying as an individual so it’s a lot longer! Loads of my garments are still at college after being displayed at the clothes show live so I’ve somehow got to try and get them (arghhhhh!) and I’ve got to find my certificates (where are they?! I’ve moved out and don’t think I took them with me).
This is one of those times where I totally wish I was organised. Things would be so much easier – being organised means you are automatically prepared for anything that life throws at you.
Seriously though, I’m running out of time.
I CAN DO THIS. I BELIEVE.
Peace xoxo Daisy
Hi guys! So I have decided I am definitely going back to uni. I’m going to apply for a foundation course first to get myself back into it and then see what degree I want to do from there.
I miss studying fashion! I still read Vogue, Dazed & Confused and ID. I still make clothes in my spare time. It makes sense to go back and study what I love and try to make a career from it. I understand that it’s one of the most difficult things to get into, but it’s also one of the biggest industries in the world.
I am feeling so motivated and finally feel focused after so long!
Now I just need to get all of my work together, put together a banging portfolio and see how it goes!
Wish me luck!! xoxo Daisy
I haven’t posted in almost a month which has seriously annoyed me! I miss blogging, I love it but things have been so busy lately. We thought that we were going to move to a new flat but have decided to stay here, signing lots of papers, working overtime at work, blah, blah, blahhhhh. All in all, everything has been boring and by next week (hopefully) everything should be back to normal.
I’ve been thinking about going back to college. I miss learning! I think I’m going to start applying once this week has passed, which should be really exciting!
Hey guys, so I bought this fake tan a couple of weeks ago because I’d read sooo many great things about it on various blogs and online stores. I’ve only just got round to trying it out last night however, so I thought I’d write a quick review.
First of all, it smells absolutely beautiful. It didn’t smell like any other fake tan when I applied it last night. This morning there was a slight tanny smell but it was seriously nothing compared to any of the others I’ve tried.
This tan also has quite a thick consistency – more like body butter? I really liked it! It went on really well and because it’s tinted straight away, you can easily see whether you’ve missed any spots. The one thing that I noticed was how fast it dried! I was really shocked because usually I have to sit around all sticky and gross in my dressing gown for like, three hours, but by the time I’d finished applying it to my top half, my legs had already dried. So that was gawd damn amazing.
So you’re supposed to wash this off after about eight hours, so I left it overnight. This morning when I woke up I was quite dark but in a nice non-orange kind of way. I noticed I’d done a pretty dodgy job of rubbing the tan in on my right arm (my bad!) but the rest was absolutely streak free and my skin was so so soo soft. After I’d showered the streak on my arm had gone anyway! And the tan look beautiful, natural and totally smooth. No orange AT ALL.
In conclusion? I think that this is actually the best tan have ever tried. I really love it! I would recommend this to anyone at all and I’ll definitely be buying it again. It cost about £18 but was definitely worth the money. I didn’t even have to use that much – a little goes a long way!
