SS: Sunday Saves (#62)

sunday-saves

Thank you for clicking onto today’s brand new Sunday Saves, I hope you’re having a lovely day so far, whatever you might be doing. If you’re new here, hello! This Sunday Saves has been created by me to come to you on a weekly basis to show you three blog posts that I have found throughout the week (or on the day I write the blog post) that I thought were interesting and I wanted to share them with those who read this blog. Today we’re not working from a theme so I’ll be talking about attitudes towards morning routines, a cruelty free exfoliation method and veganism not being a cure.

1) Kat Horrocks (How My Morning Routine Has Changed My Life)

I just want to gush for one second; Kat is one of my favourite YouTubers and I could honestly sit and watch her all day so if you haven’t came across her YouTube channel, I’ll link it here.Β Now onto her blog post, Kat is a huge advocate for morning routines and since the beginning of the year, I’ve been trying to experiment with a morning routine myself and I find it really therapeutic. In her post, she talks a little about her actual routine but more so about how it makes her feel, so if you feel like a morning routine won’t make a difference, look at Kat’s post and it might inspire you to look at your morning differently.

2) Pale Girl Rambling (Konjac Sponge)

Since changing my diet to completely plant based back in January, over the last few months I’ve been changing up my skin care, make-up and hair care to be vegan friendly. It’s all a work in progress because let’s face it, if I had the money to completely change everything in one go, I would but skin care, hair care and make-up are all expensive. One thing that has been missing from my skin care routine is an exfoliator; I know LUSH have one or two but I find they can be very harsh for every day use so I want to explore a new avenue. I’ll let PGR tell you about the sponge but she gives it rave reviews which makes me even more intrigued.

3) Spooky Kiah (Veganism Doesn’t Cure Everything)

I remember one of the first things I heard about turning vegan or going plant based was “Oh you’ll have clear skin” or “any digestive problems you have will become a lot better”. Well, as someone who has been eating plant based for almost eight months, I can tell you that neither or those are true and Kiah feels the same way. She talks more about the medication sides of things but it’s definitely an interesting read if you’ve heard this type of vegan myth before.

Thank you so much for reading this week’s Sunday Saves! Remember to have a read of everyone’s posts and give them a follow if you want to see more from them. If you’ve missed any of my other Sunday Saves, click here and you can see my other sixty one editions. Have a great day!Β

SS: Sunday Saves (#17)

Good morning! I hope you’re having a lovely Sunday so far and welcome back for another Sunday Saves. If you haven’t seen any of my other Sunday Saves, click here and you can see all my other posts. So this week I’ll be talking about being a homebody, setting intentions and a new (to me) early morning routine.

1. Katy Belle (Why I’m Happy As A Homebody)

Last week as soon as I posted my Sunday Saves, Katy posted this blog post and I knew I had to add it into this week’s Sunday Saves because I relate to it so much. When I was younger, between about fourteen and twenty, I used to have these swings of “being lonely” and “being fine”. I didn’t go out a lot with my friends, especially towards my twenties, I didn’t have a lot of friends so a lot of my time was just spent at home on my own. I found it really hard to adjust to that and to “be okay” with it but eventually over time, I did. I have always found it hard to tell myself that wanting to be at home rather than go on a night out is perfectly acceptable. Society makes us believe that we miss out on everything so that stigma that Katy talks about, I get it, I totally get it. I feel like I should write a longer post on it because there’s a lot more to it, but I truly believe that anyone can be okay with being a homebody as long as you are comfortable and confident within yourself.

2. Kat Horrocks (My Miracle Morning Routine)

I first discovered Kat through the YouTube recommendations because I spend a lot of my time looking at organisation videos with routines and planners. So Kat’s video popped up and I had no idea what a miracle morning routine was but once I watched hers, more and more popped up. I was so interested! For a while, my boyfriend and I would get up at 5am to go to the gym then we’d come back and have a smoothie to set off our day. We don’t currently do that at the minute but I would love to start getting up really early again and not necessarily go to the gym but start out my day on a productive note before I head to work. I really want to work on developing a routine like this to see what it can do for me because as much as I love my bed, getting up extra early does add a positive spin to your day. Kat talks through her routine in the morning, about her affirmations and she explains it really clearly in order for you to create something similar.

3. Skinnedcartree (Let’s Talk About Intentions)

Intentions could actually be used in relations to Kat’s video above. Corinne posted about living with intention and taking control of your life and trying everyday to be the best you can be. It’s what everyone should be doing but honestly, it’s harder than it sounds. That’s why I loved her post! She talks about going through a time in her life where she feels lost, and I can say I feel the same sometimes. You seem stuck, you feel lost and you’re not in control like you would like to be. She talks about what intentions she wants to set for herrself that she plans to work into her day-to-day life. I’m interested to see how Corinne gets on with these intentions; if they work, how they have helped, what she needs to change if they don’t. I think once you set yourself intentions to change your whole mindset, you can see such a huge change.

Well that’s all for this week’s post, remember to have a click on the links above and read what the girls have to say for yourself. This is all about discovering bloggers you may or may not have heard of and I hope that this helps towards that.
