It’s been a tough couple of weeks and a lot seems to be going wrong. From my mum being involved in car hitting her and driving off right on her doorstep no less. To our car being written off after a crash we were involved in (thank god no one was hurt). Our offer on a gorgeous apartment not being accepted and then my anxiety going into overdrive due to all of the changes the last few months catching up on me. I have to be honest here if it was not for the support of my amazing sisters and husband, I am not sure I could have come through. It’s so important to surround yourself with the right kind of people that help support, nourish and all in all be your biggest fans.
With that being said I am sharing some of my fav things that I have used, enjoyed and would encourage for you to look into.
I have found that moving to a new city has given me a little more time on my hands, so I have decided to start a few short courses and even do some studying at home. So before you start studying anything you need to have the right equipment so off I went to my local WHSmith for my foreign readers this is basically a stationary store. One the first things I purchased was this clear no fuss no frill pencil case that was flexible and sturdy.
Hot Water Bottle
There are two things I would recommend anyone visiting or thinking or relocating to the UK to invest in – A high quality Umbrella and a Hot Water Bottle.
I got mine from Amazon and it’s been keeping me warm yet looks pretty too.
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair
The best addition to my skincare regime ever. I have now been using this serum for almost 3 years and the benefits to the texture, tone and wrinkles on my skin have been improved. I cannot recommend this product enough.
I always knew of this station on the radio but skipped passed it until I started commuting by car to work. I have it on in the morning while driving to work and have found it calming and relaxing also a good way to get to know the classics e.g. Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin and my fav Debussy.
Books, Books and more Books
Once I had finished university I lost my love for books (I mean nothing puts anyone off more than the idea of having to do something). After trying to kill some time while waiting for a friend to meet up with me for lunch, I found myself in Waterstones Bookstore (it was the only calm place in Waterloo Station). I looked around in the most popular books section and purchased a few to read and now I a slowly but surely reading my way through them. The goal is to finish at least 10 books before the end of the year.
Are any of the above things that you love?
