A look back at the past month...

It’s safe to say May’s been a busy month. There have been days where I’ve felt like my feet have barely touched the ground.

The first two weeks were spent living out of suitcases as I travelled from Liverpool to Portugal and back again, before heading straight to London. I then came home to some really exciting news which has had me making endless plans and to do lists as I prepare to move to London at the end of June. I know, ahhh.

As I’m writing this, it’s Bank Holiday Monday. I’ve managed to steal a couple of hours out of the day to catch up on myself. I’m sure there’s a million things I should be doing, but I thought I’d grab a cuppa and look back on some of the highlights from the past month. Here goes…

A postcard from Portugal

I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you that I’ve been on holiday this month. So much has happened in the weeks since I’ve been back that it’s hard to believe I began this month sitting on a beach with an ice lolly in my hand…
Gathering up my highlights from the past month has made me stop for a second and look back on what a special time I had. It was lovely to be able to sign off for a couple of days and just relax with some of my favourite people. So much so, that I’m already dreaming of my next holiday in the sun. 

Some new inspiration

Speaking of holidays, it was during a trip to the beach that I discovered my new favourite podcast. I’m completely obsessed with The Emma Guns show. She’s a beauty journalist who interviews lots of influential and completely inspirational women from across the beauty industry. She’s spoken to everyone from Sali Hughes to Caroline Hirons and Sam and Nic from Pixiwoo. 

My favourite episode has to be Alessanda Steinherr’s. She’s such an amazing lady with some really interesting views on hard work and powering through. Before listening to this episode I was feeling a bit overwhelmed. I felt like I had a million things to achieve in a small space of time and I wasn’t sure where to start. Her tips for pushing through these kinds of moments and coming out on top really helped me. I’d definitely recommend giving it a listen. I’ve already played it three times this month *whoops*…

A new skincare discovery

As I’ve mentioned there’s been a lot going on this month, including some busy days and really late nights. To help combat any tired eyes and under circles, I’ve been turning to The Ordinary’s Caffeine Solution 5 %This is a brand that’s been talked about quite a lot recently, and I have to say I’ve been really impressed. It’s left my under eyes feeling really smooth and bright.

I'm moving to London

By the time you read this, I’ll have broken the news to my family and friends that I’m moving to London. I told you it’s been a busy month…
Ben has already moved to start his new job and I’ll be joining him at the end of June to start my own exciting career. It all feels really sudden, but in the best way possible. I’m so excited!

So excited, that I’ve already made about six different mood boards on Pintrest as I lust after all of the home décor and soft furnishings.
I’ll be sharing more on my experiences of moving to London and finding my way in the big city over the next couple of weeks, so watch this space.
