Introduction: PMD Personal Microderm by PMD Beauty

Now, more than ever is a great time to explore ‘at-home’ beauty tools. That’s why for today’s post I thought I would share with you the PMD Personal Microderm from PMD Beauty. Before jumping into my experience and thoughts, let’s talking about what the PMD Personal Microderm is:

A revolutionary at-home skincare tool that provides the same brilliant results as professional, in-office microdermabrasion treatments. By combining the power of exfoliation with a unique vacuum suction, the Personal Microderm works to remove the dead, dull skin cell barrier, increase blood flow, and stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin.

Book Review // Never Date a Siren*

Three books completed for 2020, which means I’m only one book behind where I should be on my 2020 Goodreads Challenge – I think that’s pretty good if I say so myself. I’m treating you this month, here’s my second book review of the month! Today I am reviewing Never Date a Siren by Byrd Nash.

Before we start my review and what I thought, let’s read the book bio for background context.

5 Self Care Habits for 2020

I think now is more important than ever to introduce self care habits into your life. We’re all struggling at the moment, I’m not going to go into detail but I’m sure you know what I’m talking about! Today I thought I would share just a couple of self care habits I’m introducing into my life, hopefully I can inspire you to introduce these into your life.

But first, what is self care?

Self-care is defined as “the practice of taking an active role in protecting one’s own well-being and happiness, in particular during periods of stress.”

2019 Fitness Goals Update

It’s great to have a Goal in mind, not just a daily or weekly one but yearly as well. I love creating Goals, I feel so inspired and it’s a great way to continue achieving. Back in July, I shared with you my 2019 Fitness Goals, here I outlined exactly what I wanted to achieve over the course of the year. Now we’re in May, it’s the perfect time to reflect on my Fitness Goals and provide an update on progress.

I know I share my Monthly Goals but this doesn’t show the overall year story. When I’m setting my Monthly Goals, I try and keep my 2019/20 Goals in mind. It can be hard achieving your Goals, especially if it’s one you want to achieve in one year. Your Goals can be a lot easier to achieve if you think about them monthly. If you don’t create Monthly Goals, I would recommend starting now.

Before we start my review and what I thought, let’s read the book bio for background context.

Review of the Samsung Galaxy Buds

It’s no surprise that I LOVE Samsung. If you don’t know that, then where have you been! Other people love Apple but I’m the opposite with Samsung. I don’t own anything Apple, apart from ‘borrowing’ if you can call it that, the Apple MacBook Air from work. Don’t get me wrong, I love their laptops but it’s just something about their phones.

In my Samsung collection, I have the Galaxy S9, Galaxy Watch and, what I’ll be reviewing today, Galaxy Buds. I didn’t even realise Galaxy Buds were a thing until Yasmine purchased them for herself, she told me how good they were so I just had to get my hands on them as well! That’s why she purchased them for me as a Birthday/Christmas present.

What’s in my everyday makeup bag?

I’ve never been one for makeup but recently, I’ve fallen in love with a couple of products. I am a beauty blogger but more on the skincare side of things. Now though, I’m looking to expand my love into other beauty areas, I thought today’s post would be the perfect start to this journey. I’m going to say this now, makeup has given me the confidence needed to feel better in myself.

It’s always good once in a while to step outside of your comfort zone in life. You’ll notice from my collection that it’s VERY basic, now please bear with me as I’ve only just started on this makeup journey. You’ll never know, maybe in the future, I’ll be a bit wilder with makeup. I am willing to learn more about makeup – if you have any how-to posts, I’ll love to read them!

Without further adieu, see my list of makeup items below!

Enjoy the scents of Summer with So…? Fragrances

With all the wind and rain we’ve had recently here in the UK, I’m sure you’re all wishing for Summer! It feels forever away… I’m sure we’re all wishing for 20 June to be soon but it’s just over three months away. I know we don’t have much of a Summer but when the sun does make an appearance, it’s definitely worth it. It might not seem like Summer outside but there are ways you can make Summer appear for you.

We all love smelling fruity and fresh, that’s also one of the perks of Summer – there’s just something about Summer and the scents that appear. You don’t just have to wait until Summer to smell fruity, there are some great brands out there that do amazing Summer scents. This leads me nicely on to today’s post where I’m sharing with you just one brand who is killing it with their collection of Body Mists.

Today, I am sharing with you two scents from So…? Fragrances – get ready to feel Summery!
