Happy & Healthy: September

Happy & Healthy September, Misfit Flash Review

My New Fitness Gadget - Misfit 

Nutrition
There isn't really much to say about this month. The only thing I would say is that because I've been back at school, I've found myself snacking less on unhealthy foods - I think it's because there is no access the biscuit barrel all day. Also, my meals have been a lot better because I'm in a routine, there has been no breakfast at 11 or skipping lunch. Oh... and should I mention that I've been addicted to Nutella this month - I can't help myself!

Fitness
Again this has improved this month due to me being back in a routine. I have completed the Fitness Blender 5-day challenge to help me get back into working out. I have to say that I actually really enjoyed doing them and it gave me more motivation to workout out, even if my whole body was so sore. Over the past week, I haven't managed to put the trainers on much as I've not been feeling the best, but defiantly going to be putting them back on soon.

The Next 30 days
During October, I'm just going to try and keep a good diet and workout more. It could be challenging as we have Halloween at the end of the month.

My New Favourite 
Misfit is a wearable fitness tracker. I bought this after hearing so many reviews on it and really wanted to get my paws on it. It was on offer in Urban Outfitters - even more reasons to buy it. I have the Misfit Flash in Pink, I like the fact that you can wear it anywhere your not just limited to your wrist like many other trackers. On the face of the device, it tells you the time and how much of your daily target you've achieved. You also track this on their app where you can see; miles you've walked, the amount of sleep, calories burnt. I'm thinking of picking up another colour something like black or grey as it will go with more outfits and not look so bright on my wrist.

Autumn Shoe Edit




As of today, we are officially in Autumn. Autumn is actually my favourite season of the year, last year  I actually wrote a post about Autumn and why I love it so much, you can find it here.  I've picked a couple pairs of shoes that I think will be perfect for Autumn. I find autumn slightly weird to dress for as it could be quite hot some days then freezing the next.

What's you favourite pair of shoes for Autumn?

Ways To Use Coconut Oil In Your Beauty Routine


Coconut oil beauty uses

Coconut oil. You've probably heard about this little product before and all the great things it can do and be used for. I know most people use it for cooking as a healthy alternative, let me show you all the great things you can use it for in your everyday beauty routine. 

Lip Balm 
Works perfect for dry lips, add some brown sugar to exfoliate your lips. 

Eye Cream
Apply to under your eyes to help prevent wrinkles, puffiness and bags. 

Moisturiser 
Apply to your skin instead of your normal moisturiser. For your body and face. 

Shaving Cream
Before you shave apply coconut oil to wet skin then just simply shave over it. 

Treat Dry Skin 
Anywhere you have some dry patches add coconut oil for extra moisture. 

Face Mask
Mix in some extra ingredients for the perfect homemade face mask, recipes here.

Body Scrub
Like the lip exfoliator, add in salt or coarse sugar to the coconut oil. 

Hair Mask 
Apply to wet hair, let it sit, then rinse out. 

Eye Makeup Remover
Put some on a cotton pad and then wipe over the eyes. 

Hand Cream
Apply to the hands and rub in like a normal hand cream.

York





The other weekend I went for a day trip to York. I took a couple of pictures and thought they were too pretty to not share with you, I didn't take many, but I thought the ones that I did take are worth sharing. I wish I took more as everything there is photogenic. I will definitely be having another trip to York soon.


Have you ever been to York before?

Quick Makeup For Busy People




I find sometimes in the morning you are so rushed and you never have much time to put a full face of makeup on so these are the five products I use in the morning if I don't have much time before going out the house. This is also great to  do if you aren't really allowed to wear much makeup for school or don't like to wear loads of makeup each day. 

1. Foundation 
I like the use Benefit Big Easy first. I love this foundation for many reasons; it has a liquid to powder formulation so is perfect for normal/oily skin, I find I don't need to powder after because of it's formula. It has an SPF 35 which is quite high compared to other foundations so there is no need to worry about applying an SPF in the morning. It's light and has a light to medium coverage so I find it nice and light on my face throughout the day. You could always add a bit of concealing if you're having a bad skin day.

2. Blush 
After the base is complete I like to apply a small amount to the apples of my cheeks to help add a bit of colour to my face and stop me looking like a ghost. This blush from MAC in Breezy is a really nice colour I feel like it's perfect for the autumn. It has a bit of a shimmer to help add the glow to your cheeks but not too much shimmer. 

3. Brows
Eyebrows, I think they are such an important feature of the face so we have to make sure we have them perfect in the morning. I like to use Benefit Gimme Brow I like this as it helps define my brows better but also because it's more of a gel formula, not powder it helps stick the hairs in place throughout the day. 

4. Mascara
Once the face is complete I will then curl my eyelashes and apply a thin layer of mascara to them. I've currently been using Soap & Glory Thick and Fast Mascara, I love this mascara as it's not too over the top and still makes your eyelashes look really natural. 

5. Lip Balm 
Finally, I apply a lip balm. I've been using Maybelline Baby Lips in Pink Punch (also love cherry me), I like this shade because it gives a hint of pink to the lips without being too overpowering. Not only that but it helps moisturise your lips and keep them hydrated throughout the day.
