Current favourites:
PUKKA Night time and Detox tea
SLEEK ‘Gloss Me’ Lipgloss

Hi people and happy April! Gosh, I can’t believe that we’re already in April, it seems like it was just New Years Eve yesterday. Well, this is actually my favourite time of the year, hence the cheesy title. But come on, isn’t spring just the best time of the year? When all the flowers (let’s not forget the cherry blossom trees) are blooming and everything else is so colourful? I went by several shops yesterday with a friend and we both agreed on how all the shops had several colourful collections. They all make me happy and I promise you I am also trying my very best to try out some colours! I actually don’t know why I don’t wear colour on a daily basis most my clothes are black and I often don’t feel like wearing anything colourful, it’s a subconscious thing I promise. I've been having my current favourites on the left side, but I thought of including them in today's post. I'm loving these two flavours from PUKKA and YES the detox actually does cleanse. The night time tea is oh so calming and it tastes so good! I did buy these with my own money, just thought I'd share as I know a bunch of you out there are tea lovers like me. So if you haven't tried these please do!

Anyway! April means spring-cleaning right? Guess what I’ve been doing the past few days? When I say spring-cleaning I don’t only mean cleaning my room/house, but also my mind, my life and my surroundings. I’ve already mentioned it in a previous post, about moving on and letting things go. However, I feel this is the year where I’m learning not to take things too personally or seriously for that matter. Trust me it’s a learning process, it’s not easy, but I think it’s something that needs to be learnt in order to succeed in life. In these past few months, I’ve learnt that there are a lot of things we need to come to terms with such as: not everyone is necessarily your friend, don’t take things personally and also the fact that it’s extremely important to find your inner peace. I know these are all quite hard to truly understand and also to practise, but I’m guessing no matter who you are, at some point in your life you will experience some stuff that’ll make you understand the importance of these. It’s all part of growing up and evolving once you’re an “adult”. So therefore as a result of my recent realisations, I’m currently doing my form of “spring-cleaning” mentally this time around.

As much as you wouldn’t want to be an extremely self-centred person, it is good to focus on you and love you. Because let’s face it – you’ve only got yourself and no matter where you go you’ll always be there. So why not start working from within – take time to take care of yourself, pamper yourself, love thyself. Find that inner peace that makes you unshakable no matter what may come your way. You’ll see that once this falls into place, whatever happens around you won’t affect you as much as they maybe once did. We’re all doing this to become better human beings, remember that. So on that note, I’ll continue my mental spring-cleaning because that’s what spring means to me.

What do you love about spring?

I hope it was a good read!
Until next time,
