As a continuation of my last post, 6 things to do if you’re having a bad day, I thought I’d share a self-care routine with you all, perfect for when you’re not feeling your best.
Bad days happen to all of us at some point and it can be hard to remember that it’s just a bad day, not a bad life. So today I’ve compiled a list of 6 things to do when you’re having a bad day in the hopes that if you’re reading this and you are having a bad day, you’ll be able to turn it round and feel relaxed and at ease.
At the start of this year I made the decision to delete my old blog, Quirks and Queries. It had been a great six -seven years, I’d had so many fun collaborations, but I felt like I needed a change. My blogging journey sure wasn’t over, but I felt Quirks and Queries no longer fitted with me personally.
So for today’s post I wanted to do something that pushes me out of my comfort zone a little bit and is a bit more fun than some of my more reflective blog posts as of late. Today’s post is going to be my springtime make up routine.
I wanted to talk a little bit today about journaling and all it’s positive mental health benefits.

I didn’t actually know before researching for this blog post that it’s one of the fundamental human needs, and I didn’t realise I’d been living my life over the past few years denying myself through emotional self-sabotage of this basic human need.
So I wanted to write this post as a checkpoint for myself in order to document how my journey is going with poetry. I’m not the most educated person, having only completed secondary school, but I’ve been self-teaching over the past few years in order to hone in on my poetry skills.

I genuinely found these books so comforting and wholesome toContinue reading “Pillow Thoughts Poetry Book Series Review”
So seeing as the weather’s getting warmer and sunnier now we’re approaching Summer, I thought it was time to purchase some bronzing lotion and give you guys the heads up as to what it’s like. Being new to the world of bronzing and tanning and all that jazz, I didn’t really know what to expect.Continue reading “Bali Body Bronzing Lotion Review”
One thing I’ve recently learned is the importance of remaining authentic in day to day life. I’m currently working hard and trying my best to remain authentic, especially in social situations. Having Asperger’s, or Autism Spectrum Disorder, I’d learnt to put on a mask in social situations to mask my different traits. Most people tendContinue reading “The Importance Of Remaining Authentic”
