update

Hey guys welcome back! 

Today I said I would give you all an update on how this whole weight loss thing is going. For me losing weight is really hard because my weight fluctuates an awful lot due to a condition I have. But I don’t want to get into that now!

But basically what happens is one day I will Step on the scales and feel really good cause I have lost a pound or 2 but then I will check again the day after and I have gained 3 pounds and it can be really disheartening. Even when I know That it’s not really true weight gain and that it will be gone soon it’s still hard to see the scales giving you the wrong reaction when you are working hard to achieve something.

The moral of this post is really just to tell you that weight fluctuates it’s not something​ you should let dishearten you or cause you to fall off the band wagon just remembered to keep going and stay committed.

Thanks guys for reading.

I’ll talk to you soon x

being a small blogger

Hey guys welcome back as always feel free to comment like and follow for more!

Today’s topic is about being a small blogger. Now I really am as small a blogger as you can get last time I checked I had 10 followers! Which isn’t many but it really doesn’t bother me and I’ll tell you why.

Everytime I write a blog I know that no matter how small the number might be that there will always be people there who will read. Although it might be only a few people I know that they are there to support me and genuinely have an interest​in what I have to say. The loyalty and support I have received from some of these people since the beginning has been amazing. I would rather have this than hundreds of followers who don’t give a damn about what I say or my opinions.

So yes I want to thank you all for being there every like you give every comment you leave really does mean something to me. No my blog has not blown up and I don’t have a tonne of followers and thats ok because the ones I do have are so important to me and motivate me to do better! 

Thank you all for your support. 

From a small blogger who never thought a single person would be interested in what I had to say.

My reading slump

Hey guys welcome back as always feel free to comment like and follow for more!

Today’s topic is the dreaded reading slump! I don’t know about you but these can be some of the worst time for a bookworm. You can’t get into the book and when you read you can’t concentrate and just generally lack the motivation to read.

Now I don’t know about you but the main cause of my reading slump is the books I’m reading. I find of I start a book and am really enthusiastic and then the book starts very slowly or just isn’t up to your expectations it leaves me disappointed and unmotivated to read. Now I am not one for putting a book on the dnf list and I give books a very good chance to change my mind. A lot of the time I stick it out to the bitter end just so I don’t waste my time and money on a book I don’t even read. 

This is why I take so long to read certain books and that’s why I end up in a slump. Unfortunately it can sometimes turn me off reading for months and other times the slump ends once the book that I found boring ends.

I don’t know maybe I’m the only one that experiences this but it is quite a big problem for me when I’m reading! Do you guys ever get this? What causes you guys to get into a reading slump? Let me Know in the comments and I’ll talking to you soon. Thanks for reading!

My favourite​ affordable foundation

Hey guys and welcome back ! As always feel free to comment like and follow I love talking to you guys!

Today’s blog is going to be my favorite affordable foundation.

PS pro longlasting mineral foundation

This is a product I have not seen anyone ever really talk about and I can’t understand why! It is only €6 which for a foundation is already really cheap especially for the quality you are getting. I wouldn’t recommend it for people with oily skin it can get quite shiny by the end of the day on my combination skin. I have noticed that the finish adapts to the condition of my skin so I can’t really give a definite finish!

I usually stick to drug store foundation mainly because I am so pale. I don’t want to buy a high end foundation that looks great in store and then get home and it doesn’t match at all. Especially when you can’t return it. So I was shocked that this foundation actually matched me. I am the shade 1 porcelain which is not surprising but I was skeptical when they only had 6 shades ( as far as I’m aware). I didn’t think it would match me because I usually have to use my dreamtone by manic panic to lighten my foundations.

It also has an SPF of 15 which is also good for such a cheap foundation. Here are some swatches in natural light and and also with flash.

I know it may not looks like my exact match but I swear in person it suits me perfectly! It does have flash back but that’s not too surprising seeing as it does contain an spf.

I really would recommend you try it if you get the chance. You can’t really go wrong it only cost €6 who knows you might love it too!

Thanks for reading guys I hope ye have a good day! Talk to you soon!

The beginning

Hey guys welcome back to my blog!
As always feel free to comment, like and follow I love talking to you guys!

I guess you could say that this is probably the first blog I have written on health or fitness! I guess I haven’t really spoken about anything recently except books!

For the past year I guess you could say I have been struggling with my weight. Now I wouldn’t say I am obese or anything like that but I do I have a bit of extra weight that I could do with losing. This picture is from about 2 months ago but it is the only picture I have of my at my current weight. I have a bmi of 28.2 which places me at overweight.

That is why today I decided to commit to trying to lose weight for real this time. In the last 2 months I lost about 5 pounds, then I went on holiday and gained it back and was right back to where I started.

I thought I would take you guys with me!

These are today’s macros and calories.

I am tracking on MyFitnessPal, it’s a great way to really see what you are eating and what’s in your food.

This is today’s workout. I said id start with something small and build on it. So I took a nice comfortable pace walk with a friend(who also has a blog ye should check out here)

I tracked my walk with my google fit app which can be used for many different types of workouts.

Now I won’t be doing a daily log of my calories or workouts unless you guys want to see them but I will try my best to keep ye all updated​on my progress!

Thank you guys for reading ! I’ll see you again soon!

Books

One of my favorite book series

Hey guys welcome back! I know I am doing a lot of book reviews and stuff to do with books but I am just in a bit of a book spree at the minute!

As always feel free to comment like and follow! Let me Know in the comments what your favorite book series is.

This will hopefully be a spoiler free review for the mortal instruments series by Cassandra Clare.

I don’t know where I am supposed to start as this is a series full of twists and turns and it quite hard to just summarize into a few lines but I will try.

This series follows the life of a girl called Clary Fray as she is thrown intothe Shadowhunter world. A Shadowhunter is a half angel half human in charge of protecting the humans from the demons. Downworlders are people that have demon blood eg warlock, vampire etc they have a treaty with the clave the government of the Shadowhunters. As Clary explores this new world she discovers things about her family and her own life that change how she sees everything​. She is faced with many trials and tribulations and must discover her own powers that could save the world and the people she loves.

I can’t say for certain why I enjoyed this series so much. There was no one defining  moment that solidified it for me I just found it was well written and had so many​great qualities.

I must admit it has been awhile since I read this series but I am really looking forward to picking it up again though I don’t know when. I hope I love it then just as much as I did the first time round!

Thanks for reading I hope you have a wonderful day! Talk to you soon!
