Green Glow

I have daily rituals that make me feel more confident. I enjoy the time I set aside for making up my face; it’s a chance for me to gather my thoughts, listen to my favourite music and prepare for the day. In the last few years, drug store make-up has come along leaps and bounds, and you no longer have to spend a fortune to achieve a wide variety of looks. I like to wear a mix of high-end and high-street, but there are certain products that are worth the investment.

Home Workouts

I have certain daily rituals that make me feel good, exercising at home is one of them. I use a website called Fitness Blender; the videos vary from benign yoga to barbarous HIIT cardio and weight training. When I’m done with the hard core workouts I can taste blood in my mouth and I sweat from every pore. Despite the brutal punishment that I subject my body to, I feel better for doing it. I try to do my home workouts every day, my mood improves and I’m much easier to live with. I can’t abide the gym, I find using the equipment tedious and the thumping monotony of ‘motivation’ music gets on my last nerve. I prefer the privacy of home and having control of the playlist. Another of my everyday practices is listening to my favourite music and doing my […]
