My Bedtime Routine

What a surprise, I've ended up having a massive break from blogging again. I don't really have any real reasons for this, I still love blogging and reading other blogs but I guess uni and life in general got in the way of my blog! Anyway, I'm back now.

I struggle with sleeping, no two ways about it.  So I really do try everything to get a decent nights sleep and I think a big part of this is to have a routine in place.  I've mentioned a bit about my routine in this post but this will include other aspects that I haven't mentioned before!

(I adore this bedding but wow it is hard to make it look good in pictures!)

I know how bad this is, but I really struggle with a set bed time.  I normally end up getting ready for bed around 11 and then don't end up in bed until 12 as I just get distracted! Anyway, first things first is skincare.

I'm sure you all know by now how much I love my Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish.  Honestly my holy grail product! I will always try and use this to remove my makeup and cleanse my face well but sometimes I am a bit lazy and will just use a makeup wipe.  My favourite are the Simple ones.




















I also have this Botanics cleanser that I use if I have used a makeup wipe as I find that gets off anything else left from the makeup wipe.  From the same brand I have the serum as well. I've never really used a serum before so I can't compare it to any others but it does the job for me and I'm really enjoying using it.




















Finally, moisturiser.  I use the Liz Earle one which I absolutely love.  I also use it in the mornings as well before I put on my makeup.  Although it is a bit pricier, I definitely recommend it if you're currently looking for a new moisturiser.

So once all my skincare is done, I get into my PJs and straight into my bed. No surprises, but I end up sitting on my phone for ages before I end up gong to sleep.  

As well as a routine before bed I believe that a good mattress is very important to help you get a good nights sleep. That is where Leesa comes in. I am currently lucky enough that I do have a good mattress at the moment as my room was re done just over a year ago and I got a new mattress.  However, Leesa do some of the best mattresses I have seen and at reasonable prices, win win.  I am actually a bit sad I didn't know about them when I was looking last year! Anyway, they know how important a mattress is for a good nights sleep.  This mattress is one I really love the sound of.  It has 3 different layers, one being a memory foam which I'm sure is very nice! The reviews on the website too speak for themselves! 
I would definitely recommend this company if you are wanting a new mattress and there is also £100 off with a code that is advertised on the website.  What more could you want! 

I hope you all enjoyed this first post back from me! 

What is your current bedtime beauty routine? What do you think of these mattresses? 

CBT

I've spoken about my mental health on my blog a bit before, but not for a while and I've never really spoken about therapy.  I'm going through a real crappy time with my mental health at the moment so I just thought I would blog about it as blogging takes my mind off of things but I just can't face talking about things that seem silly to me at the moment like beauty products and reviews etc. So, here we are now with a blog post about my mental health and current therapy.

March BIRCHBOX | Review

I've never thought about getting a BIRCHBOX before, but I kept seeing adverts for their March one and that the new Benefit Real Lips lipstick and liner in one and I really wanted to try it, but I don't wear enough lipstick to pay the full price! I have always wanted to get a BIRCHBOX so I decided the March would be best!

The Skinny Kitchen

I'm not too sure if The Skinny Kitchen is a well known restaurant, I didn't even know about it until my friend told me about it.  Anyway, I visited there a couple of weeks ago with my friend and had a lovely lunch so thought I would do a blog post on it!
