Life Lately// School's Out For Summer!

It's been a long time since my last blog
post so today I thought I'd share
the low down of my life lately.......

Instagram Diary

Annnd relax.... Yep, that's right folks, schools out for Summer once again! I couldn't be more relieved if I tried. I haven't made any set plans for the Summer just yet but for now relaxation and just small things I wouldn't normally have time for are on the agenda.

1. Workout Essentials: Before the start of this year, I detested exercise. The most amount of exercise I got was lifting up the remote to the change the channel on the tv. I was lazy x10! But fast forward to this present day and I'm obsessed with exercise! Now, there's a phrase I never thought I'd be saying and it even got an explanation mark and everything ;-) Recently, I finished 30 days of yoga and I've honestly never felt better! It gave me so much energy and improved my overall mood. I also love Pilates, it's tough but so worth it.

2. Exam OOTD: I always feel like my style is so boring throughout the school year. I'm really lucky to attend a non-uniform school but I'm never brave enough to experiment with my outfits, I tend to just stick to converse and jeans. I'm looking forward to experimenting with my style and stepping out of my comfort zone a little this Summer. Although, I somehow doubt my Summer wardrobe will consist of shorts, flowy dresses and sandals with how the bad the weather has been recently. Sun, where you at?!

3. Beauty Favourites: I thought I'd incorporate a few beauty favourites from the month: First up, I've been obsessed with Essie 'Lilacism'! I have a full review coming up so keep your eyes peeled out for that one. The Avene Thermal Spring Water has been a firm favourite of mine since last summer. It's great for cuts, burns, irritated skin, to set makeup, I mostly use it to soothe my eczema. Another love comes in the form of Bath & Body Work's 'Caribbean Escape' hand sanitiser. It's pink and smells like coconut - What more would you want? Last but not least are two from The Body Shop's shea butter range: The hand cream and lip butter. Both are incredibly moisturising and smell good enough to eat. 

4. Oreo Cupcakes: A few weekends ago I baked Oreo cupcakes and oh my were they delicious. A basic vanilla cupcake with broken Oreos thrown in and topped off with smooth, creamy vanilla buttercream icing which also had bits of Oreo throughout. One word. Yum. They were so nice that I'm making them again this weekend along with some Red Velvet cupcakes for my Granny's 90th birthday. Drooool......

And there we have it, everything that's been happening in Chez Moi over the past few weeks. I'm delighted to be back to the blogging game and can't wait for some exciting Summery blog posts! Until then....

What have you been getting up to lately?

Love,
Cliona xx
