My Birthday Wishlist

So next Monday is my birthday and, much to the annoyance of my family, I've been struggling to come up with ideas for what I actually want. It's always the way and, as I usually go shopping on my birthday anyway, most of my family will put money in my card for me to spend on the day. I've been having a little think over the weekend and here are a few of the things I think I'll be spending my money on.

Slimming World Take Two

Those have you that have been following Kizzy Hearts for a long time may have read my weight loss journey post, where I explained how I'd managed to lose almost four and a half stone in the lead up to my wedding. Since my health problems started last year, I really let myself go in the healthy eating and exercise department, and as a result ended up well over half way back to my start weight. I tried going it alone at home but it just wasn't the same without the motivation of other people knowing how you were doing, and being accountable to someone other than yourself. With my sisters wedding looming this summer, on 30th April I set foot back inside a Slimming World class to give myself the kick up the backside I needed.

My Experience Of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

A few people have asked where I've been these past few months. All I've offered so far as an explanation was simply that I was ill, without going into specific detail. But now I feel ready to talk about what's been going on in my life. I realise I don't have to (believe me I thought a lot about whether I should write this post or not), and some of you may not want to read a post like this, which is fine, I'll be back to my usual posts again after this one! I'm doing this mostly for myself - I feel like sharing my experience with others is a kind of therapy in itself - but if reading this post helps anyone at all, that would be amazing too.

Five Minute Makeup

Quite often, usually Monday to Friday, I really can't be bothered with doing the full works makeup - I'd rather spend the extra time in bed! I like to keep my routine for workday mornings as simple as possible, which means using as few products as I possibly can, and using ones that require minimal effort to apply. So here are my top fuss free products for those lazy mornings.

Recent Beauty Favourites

I'm baaaack!! Ok so my break lasted a tad(!) longer than I expected it to, very sorry about that! I'll get into why etc. another day, but today I'm talking beauty favourites. So, I haven't blogged about beauty products in yonks, but I've certainly been enjoying them in the meantime, and here's just a selection of the products I've been enjoying over the past few months.
