Fall Back In Love With Blogging

Fall Back In Love With Blogging
I think most of us can all agree that the blogging world has been a bit strained the past few months or so. With the drama of Bloglovin, Instagram and other bloggers bashing each other, blogging can sometimes make you feel a bit deflated and unsure of whether blogging is something you still want to be apart of. Lot's of us have noticed our hard work go to waste with certain apps making things harder for us to get noticed, there's also people cheating their way to the top by buying fake followers and playing games, resulting in some of us going on digital or social media detoxes to get away from it all. I know it's not just me who's been feeling a little burnt out and fed up with everything that has been going on. So I really wanted to share this post with anyone who has been feeling a bit 'meh' about blogging lately and needs some help in falling back in love with this hobby that was actually pretty damn fun! Here's what I have been trying to do to fall back in love with blogging:

Skincare On Trial - Anatomicals

Skincare On Trial - Anatomicals
One of the most exciting things about being an enthusiast of all things beauty is that you get to try out so many different products from a range of different areas, like makeup or skincare. I'm always on the hunt for new skincare products and testing out new ones to find the ones that work well for me. This also means I like to go for something that is also affordable, because let's face it when you love trying out different products all the time, it can rack up quite the expense. 

Anatomicals are a brand I got introduced to through Instagram and spotted over on ASOS. Their fun and quirky themed products really enticed me in and I just couldn't help myself but want to know more. They kindly sent over a more than generous PR package with a mixture of skincare products a and also some cute little lip balms for me to try. Over the past few weeks, I've been trialing these Anatomical goodies and I'm going to share my views in today's post.

Important Things To Remember When You Suffer With Any Mental Illness
When you first get diagnosed with a mental health illness of any form, it can seem so daunting and overwhelming. Sometimes it can even be a relief to finally know what's going on inside your mind and be able to go forward with your recovery now you're aware of just what it is you're suffering with. In no way does that mean it is easy (if only it was, huh?). Its complicated and sometimes it can be messy.
