You know that it’s getting bad when the new clothes you buy will no longer fit in your wardrobe or cabinet! Fitting my clothes into my wardrobe was like fitting an elephant into a teacup – it just wasn’t happening.

Since reading Caroline Hirons many posts on skincare routines, it has become a vital part of my daily life to make sure that every night I take my make up off and cleanse my skin. However, Caroline Hirons is very much about splashing out and and using the very best products for your skin. As a 20 something year old recent graduate it is not always possible to spend a lot of money on skincare, therefore I have come up with a daily routine that works perfectly for me using only budget friendly skincare. This routine is what I have been using all throughout the winter when my skin is at its driest and it has done wonders keeping my face hydrated and plumped.

Every day something can set me off, I get this deep feeling of doubt and panic, a sudden feeling of sickness and a lump in my throat. Continue reading →
