Paula's Choice Skincare Review

Paula's choice skincare has to be without a doubt the best skincare brand I have come across, this brand literally saved my skin so i thought i would share how awesome it is with you.
I'm very interested in skincare and its something i research a lot into before purchasing, after finding Paulas choice I have since learn't so much more about skincare and the kind of ingredients you should avoid putting on your skin, even natural ingredients, which happen to be in many skincare brands.

My Journey to finding Paula's choice

I'd never had any problems with my skin before even as a teen i never got breakouts and was always very lucky with my skin.
I've always been a healthy eater, and loved using high quality products such a clinique, which i think helped, but i think most of my good skin was down to genetics.

However unfortunately for me since starting the use of the 'mirena IUD' last year i began suffering with very problematic skin, from huge pimples to very dry skin and blackheads.
Usually i would have just said "forget this" and took the mirena out!
However if you follow my blog then you will know i suffer from a chronic hormonal condition 'Endometriosis'.
 I had surgery for Endometriosis last year and as many of you ladies with Endo will know they put you straight onto hormone treatments to help the endometriosis.
I've never liked the idea of taking pills or having a foreign object in my body but since i have Endo i didn't really have much choice.

For the first six months of the mirena my skin was freaking out and i knew i had to do something about it because it was really getting me down.
So i searched everywhere about treatment for hormonal breakouts and couldn't really find much information that wasn't telling me to use another drug, until i came across Paulas Choice.
There was tonnes of information about treating breakouts and problematic skin and the products had such great reviews.
They also offered a 30 day money back guarantee if the products didn't work so i thought what have i got to lose?

The products are quite expensive, however it was no more than i was paying for clinique products
and the brand is cruelty free so i'd been looking for a good quality cruelty free brand for a while.
I started with basics a cleanser, toner and moisturiser, i decided to go with the Earth sourced range as it was the best value, suitable for all skin types even rosacea prone skin, and is made from 99% natural ingredients.

Within a week of using Paulas choice i could already see changes in my skin it felt soothed soft and the dry patches were all gone.
No longer did my skin feel greasy or tight like it had done previously.
Within a month i had no breakouts, no dry patches or redness and my skin was clear again.
I still suffer with the occasional breakouts around that time of the month but nothing like it was before.

Taurus season

Now that were into the Taurus season, as a Taurus myself I thought I'd share with you all about the Star-sign. I've always been passionate about astrology and read my horoscope almost everyday and i truly do believe in it.
Yes I'm probably that annoying friend that's always going on about the different star signs and their traits!

Taurus is the second sign in the Zodiac, the ruler of Taurus is in Venus which is all about femininity.
Venus is the planet of Love, beauty, attraction, creativity and gratitude.
The Element of Taurus is Earth, which makes them grounded, pratical and in touch with nature.

Taurus traits
This star sign is a lover of the finer things in life, including good food, fine clothing, beauty, they just enjoy pleasure, and like to be surrounded by love and comforts.
Despite having such high tastes, the Taurus is very down to earth and realistic.
The Taurus are very loyal, reliable, stable and conservative yet sensual.
Stability is very important to a Taurus so it comes as no surprise that if they don't feel stability in their life they become quite anxious, and their not usually big risk takers.

How to Move to London on a budget?

So you want to move to the big smoke?, but your short on pennies?

I moved to London from Sheffield all on my own at 18years old penniless and full of dreams, so I thought I'd share with you my story and some tips on how I managed to do that.

I'd always dreamed of living in a big city, I visited New York in 2009 and fell head over heels in love.
Since it was practically impossible for me to be able to move to New York from England, I figured London would be the next best thing!

I've always been a creative person and was passionate about Fashion, and was about to complete my BTEC National Diploma in Fashion and Textiles.
Our college lecturers were preparing us for University, and they all warned us not to go to study Fashion in London, they 'said' how hard it was to get onto Creative courses in London and how expensive it was to live there.
But being my stubborn taurus self i was determined to prove them wrong, I applied to London only universities and was super pleased with myself when I got offered a space on a Fashion Design Degree.

I moved to London with absolutely no money!
I had jobs since I was 14 but I was never a saver, always a spender, what can I say?.. I love shopping!
literally I had a £10 in my purse, and I paid my first months rent with my student overdraft, which set me back £500 a month, for a tiny little room in a shabby old shared house.

Staying healthy over the festive season

Christmas is by far and away my favorite time of the year. I love walking around shops with the  Christmas songs playing everywhere, all t...
