So last week, we entered into Spring, officially. The weather does seem to have improved a little, at least in temperature, though we are getting early April showers too! Recently I’ve been thinking a lot about weight loss, about appearance and about myself generally.
Now before you all think I’m being extremely selfish, I don’t mean it in that way at all. However as a mum to two young girls, for a long time now I’ve never really bothered to put myself first – for me time or pampering. As such I realised I’ve become a little too nonchalant with the effort I put in at times and with Spring already here and Summer on its way, I’ve decided to Spring Clean my life!
The first step is definitely to get on board with some weight loss. I’ve been yo-yoing on it since the beginning of the year but I really need to put some effort into trying to lose some weight. My friend Nat and I have decided we will be blogging about our weight loss in a feature called Weight Loss Wednesday, over at our new parenting and lifestyle blog – Twice the Mum. We’re hoping that making ourselves publicly accountable will motivate us to stick at it.
However on top of that, I want to try some pampering luxuries that I’ve never been bothered to try before.
I’ve been a Lush addict for quite some time now, but I’ve never taken the time to try any of the other companies that people rave about. Soap and Glory, Benefit, Mac, Urban Decay, Barry M, to name but a few. I’ve also been stuck using Lou Lou Blue as a perfume for probably… gosh… over 10 years?
I’m going to broaden my horizons, probably spend a whole lot more than I should, but finally find some little luxuries that are all about me!
So please, if you have any suggestions, I’m all ears! In the upcoming weeks I’m going to try at least one nail polish from Barry M (I think the new silks range, or perhaps gelly ones!), hopefully buy an Urban Decay palette that I really wanted and didn’t justify spending the money on, and maybe even get a new scent! I’d love to hear your thoughts on the best products from each brand I’ve mentioned (and even ones I haven’t) and point me in the right direction of where to get them for a good price!
