WHY MY DAY SUCKS

We all have horrible days when things are not going well as expected and we tend to capitalise on that one wrong thing to determine our day ahead. Well I am here to tell you that horrible days are decisions and egos that drive us to act in such a way or vice versa.

Down below I am going to list down, how you can get over this horrible day issue.

REFLECTION

First of all reflect on what exactly made you get mad or changed that mood of yours and then ask yourself if it worth ruining your day. By doing this you will for sure feel better.

MEDITATION

Clearing our minds is something that is hard to do, but if we get into the habit we can for sure do it. Try to meditate for at least 10 minutes to calm your  mind and put your restlessness at ease.

DO SOMETHING YOU LOVE THE MOST

For me it would be listening to music to sort of detract me from that horrible thought. It could be reading a book or dancing do what ever makes you smile.

HAVE A RELAXING BATH

Try to take a bath put some candles on and relax play some relaxing music you can find this on you tube and zone out.

Okay those are the ways i think you can get over horrible , horrible days cannot be avoided but we can try to make sure they don’t ruin us . I am now getting into a habit of writing short clear blogs please let me know if you think this is a good idea.

comment down below sand tell me how you get over a horrible day

LOVE YOU ALL

PLANNING YOUR WEEKEND

Uncategorized

MAKE YOUR WEKEED WORTH THE HYPE

So let me start by saying I am one of the people that really does not gets weekend’s off, because I work on a shift basis and weekends I am required to work as well. But when I get a weekend off I do for sure make sure I try to plan it, thats if  I do not get a bad cold or my monthly woman issue.

So today is Friday you are hoping to have a good weekend but you are unsure what exactly to do, well  I am going to tell you  how you can have a fabulous weekend.

Even though you are going to work you can make your working weekend a fun one .

So lets begin.

  1. WEEKEND LIST

Okay yeah I am talking about a list again , but this is the most important bit to plan your weekend.  List the things that  you really want to accomplish over your weekend. The things that you will not want to go over to the next week for example for me I would like to

a) Make any pending important phone calls

b) Organise all my work for my university

c) Make sure I am up to date with all my course work

d) Meet up friends that are free this time, I am going out to Brighton with a couple of friends.

And so much more things like this, I would not like them to  move over to the next week so make a list of the things you have to do .

2. Have a relaxing period

As you plan your weekend make sure you include 30 minutes in your schedule have a relaxing bath a detox session. This is going to help you wash off all the bad energy within you , that you have had through the whole week . This will help you feel fresh for the next week.

3. ACCOMPLISHMENTS

Make sure you finish off the pending work that you have to do within the week, if you still have stuff unfinished , you must finish them by the end of the weekend.

4. EXERCISE

Do not forget to exercise one thing that will make your weekend a good one is working out do something, run , mediate, yoga and anything that makes your body move a bit. Me I am going trying so hard to make sure I work out everyday. I do try to share my work out stories on my Instagram which is LUCY A you can go check it out so you can see how I tend to work out.

5. RELAX DONOT OVER PLAN

Make it a point to relax as much as you can  and and live it to the fullest. Do not over schedule your weekend and be free.

okay my loves their you have it , things you can do or how to plan your weekend.

Today is a Friday and tomorrow the weekend will start  so please try to enjoy it go out with friends have fun and  care less.

So guys tell me how do you plan to spend your weekend and what things are you up to, this weekend if you have already planned it. Even though you have work do something different because  I am working too.

I just remembered I have now made a schedule and I upload every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

HOW TO: FEEL GOOD EVERY MORNING

Uncategorized

FEEL GOOD EACH TIME YOU WAKR UP

HELLO my lovelies, One of the feelings I hate the most is waking up early in the morning and feeling like i did not rest  at all, in simple terms feeling like shit.  Their could be a number of reasons some of which may be medical while the others may just be associated with just simply our own habits . I have some of the things  I do that make me feel better each time I wake up. Well lets be honest some days I still wake up feeling down, but I  make it feel better by doing some exercise. Okay lets get down to the most important part. Some of these are similar to my previous post about, 6 Healthy habits if you are not following them then please try these .

I am making a challenge which is try one or two of these ideas, the challenge will be called TheLULUMORNINGCHALLENGE.

  1. READING

Yes you are all tired of me taking about reading but imagine, if you got into a habit of reading before bed you will  feel so much better in the morning when you wake up swap this for your social media and tell me how you  will feel the next morning.

2. PLAN YOUR MORNING

I have mentioned a couple of times on my blog, if you have not read it check  it out on my blog post on HOW TO START BELIEVING IN YOURSELF. The best part of your morning is the feeling of knowing what you are going to do the next day. Write down your plan for the next day in your dairy, the night before and plan out what you have to do. This will make your morning better ones.

3. WAKE UP EARLY EVERYDAY THE SAME TIME

Set your Alarm to wake you up each day at the same time. This will keep your mind and body on a daily  routine. Waking up the same time each day will help you sleep better at night  and a strong wakefulness. I personally set my alarm to wake up at 9:30 each day. Well the truth is that I have been trying and so far so good I will keep you updated if this is really helpful. But for sure I cannot complain.

4.DO SOME EXERCISE WHEN YOU WAKE UP

Early in the morning when you wake up , you have to try and do some exercise, at least make it a point to workout 4 times in a week. I love to do squats and front lunges they help me a lot , in times when I cannot do a full work out. But once I do some body movements it always makes me feel better for sure.

5. GET INTO A HABIT OF SAYING POSITIVE THINGS

When I  wake up in the morning I love to say positive things to myself and get into a positive feeling or sometimes I love to play slow music in the morning once I am up and running. So I would highly recommend you to try this.

6. DO NOT SLEEP ANGRY

When you are going to bed make sure you are not angry at anything , sleep in peace with a clear mind. Try to over come what ever you are feeling that is stressing you out and leave it behind before you go to sleep. This will give you a good night sleep and a good morning wake up.

“IF YOU CANNOT CHANGE SOMETHING DO NOT STRESS ABOUT IT”

so get yourself a good night sleep

My mornings are getting a lot better when I try to follow these routines . Please try to follow me and see if this will workout for you. Please do try to email me ask me about anything that you are unsure about.

6 HEALTHY HABITS I GUARANTEE WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE

Uncategorized

HEALTHY HABITS THAT WILL MAKE YOU A BETTER PERSON

Before we start I have a you tube channel this is the link check it out

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCU_uesLQ0pr4sQmGoZfqDGw?view_as=subscriber

HELLO. Lovies ,Living  healthy is something that we all struggle with. We are so much consumed up with so much stuff that we forget the most important part of our lives is our health.

Personally I try as much as I can to live healthy,however, one or two times I do slip off and forget my target but to be honest with you, I have gone through so much in this year that now I  decided to do “me” and make my body mind and health a better place if  I am going to handle anything. These are some of the things I have done to keep healthy and make my days really the best and the most loveable. Please I  would like to say that I am not perfect at anything at all but I do try to make things a  routine, and then  suddenly they become part of me after a long time. I am positive that if you try these habits they will work for you and they make you a better person , please try them and let me know how you are scoring out of 100.

So lets begin

  1. AVOID THE PHONE

Yes hands down I have tried this method and  it has worked for me. Before bed try not to stay on your phone for a long time ( I am writing this blog at 23:00 hahah good way to start) , instead try to read something or listen to podcasts, these really help a lot because they keep your mind fresh and good to go. Staying on your phone is never going to make your mornings amazing ones.  Social media is so tempting but you have to try to fight it for sure. The other thing is that when you wake up in the morning avoid looking at the phone as your first things this pretty much will determine how your day goes. Occupy yourself with other things during the day, so that you can forget your phone otherwise look for a distraction.

2. READ BOOKS OR WATCH INSPIRATION VIDEOS

I do not know how many times I  have said  this on my blog &videos and I do not know how much i can stress this . Reading books and topics that are motivational are really a good healthy habit , diverting your mind to something else, can change your mind and how you may think about yourself. Reading is so much more important and useful, more than you can imagine, so if you want too feel better please try to read as much as much as you can  my favourite books are the motivational and inspirational ones.

3. EAT HEALTHY

One thing I am going to openly tell you is that eating healthy can be a bit pricey , but let me tell you  if you start eating healthy now, your future will be brighter do not think of how pricey it might be but rather what are the benefits in a long run. Always remember a health  mind in a  healthy body.  Trying to eat well is the most important thing and will save your health in general.

“HEALTHY MIND IN A HEALTHY BODY”

BECOME HEALTHY AND HAPPY.png

4. WORKOUT

The one things I am going to tell you is that you will never regret working out but will always regret not working out . Meditation, Yoga  and Exercise will save you and this healthy habit always personally makes me feel good. Each time I workout  my day feels so better, be it my week this habit will save you a lot . I do not want to make this blog long by telling you the benefits of working out, which you already know and have read several times. So please try at least once or twice in a week to make these baby steps towards it.

5.TRY TO LEARN SOMETHING NEW

Learning something new is s great way to expand your knowledge, it can be learning to cook ,  learning a different language ,learning to drive , it could be anything just try to learn something new. I am trying to learn French as a new language , because I would like to know other languages, and I am trying to read about the Ego and understand the mind. So yeah learning something new makes your mind to move forward and help your self esteem. This is a good healthy habit, its like feeding your brain with direct food to grow.

6. APPRECIATE YOURSELF

First thing in the morning when you wake up is to look in the mirror, and say the most amazing things about yourself and live by them. As for me when I wake up in the morning, I usually say things like, today is going to be a great day, today I will accomplish lot of things or I say Lucy you have done well and you are going to do more.

So my lovies their you have it the most healthy habits that will help you a lot and make you a better person . I promise you if you try these habits you will be abetter on a day today basis

FENTY BEAUTY FOUDATION BY RIHANNA

Before you read this if you have not followed this blog please do by clicking the FOLLOW button at the right hand side of this screen.

Well before I start I am so sorry that I have been so unavailable because it is sometimes hard to keep up with everything that is going on and the fact that being a Youtuber and a Blogger at the same time, this has made me realise how much effort all the Youtubers and bloggers put it to make all this work. I am sorry once again sorry but I hope you understand.

Okay now let’s move to the most important reason you are reading it this Blog. Most of us have heard about the New makeup collection by Rihanna called Fenty Beauty. Her make up collection has stormed the internet and is popping. Out of her whole makeup collection which consists of foundations of up to 40 shades wooow, to concealer sticks, highlighters , one lipgloss , powder and much more to mention. I was more interested in the foundation which I went a long and bought. The shade I bought is 490 and I have managed to try it on in my Youtuber video.

Click the link to my video on Fenty beauty Video

 

The Foundation claims to be  in their own words  Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation gives skin an instantly smooth, pore-diffused, shine-free finish that easily builds to medium to full coverage. The oil-free formula is made with climate-adaptive technology that’s resistant to sweat and humidity, and won’t clog pores so that wherever you are, it’s going to work on your skin. Best of all, this longwearing, light-as-air texture is undetectable on skin — so you always look like you.FullSizeRender 5

WHAT I REALLY THINK

Okay as you have heard it from the Horse’ mouth let me tell you what I think. when i opened the foundation bottle  it really looked so super cool and had that frosty look which is so amazing. However, I was little bit disappointed by the top ( cover) which was plastic and the quality was not the best ever just my opnion.

lets move to the actual foundation

  1. it was really runny

FullSizeRender 4

  1. It is  matte but not too over powering when applied to the skin
  2. it looks so supper light in the bottle but blends in so well with the skin as it is darker in the bottle lets say matched the skin well.
  3. It is for sure a light coverage you have to keep building it up it achieve a full coverage look.
  4. It is not my idle foundation reason being it is matte and i prefer a more glossy finish to the look if you get what  I am saying.
  5. It only costs £26 which is super affordable and it is high end but drug store affordable i hope you get what I mean.

FullSizeRender 6

Anyway over all if you are matte girl then this foundation is the best one for you for sure with no doubt.

This is what i think about this foundation , everyone is  talking about it and I like this because it accounts for all shades of colours (races). I believe their is room for improvement with new beauty trend by Rihanna.

Please let me know what you think about this foundation by leaving a comment

 

WELCOME

Hello beauties, welcome to my very first blog, My passion for beauty and fashion all started with my own mom (Elizabeth)  who always went out and bought me high end  fashion statements with the little she earned , because she loved the quality and the variety they had and wanted to see me look fabulous in her own way.. She always told me “Lucy try to look fashionable as a lady  and always look out for pieces that work well with your body” well l listened and went far and beyond to an extent of her telling me Lucy slow down the house is piling up with cloths. However, it was too late because I had already fallen in love with fashion and never was turning back.

The same happened with beauty  and makeup. As a girl growing up I never wore make up or cared for my skin, but my never ending mom was very kind enough to explain to me the basis of makeup right from foundation to lipstick yeah you heard me l had no idea at all. l literally nicked most of her make up even though we are not of the same colour complexion and yes she always found out throw my selfies.

I went on and bought my very first foundation which was Mac foundation and made me look orange, but l did not care because l knew i looked like a princess hahah. This all changed when l watched my very first makeup tutorial by Patricia Bright, l remember the excitement and the urge to go buy all the products she had mentioned in her you tube channel. l feel in love with the whole concept of what l can do with just a brush and a paste ( foundation). l experimented on my little brother who had no choice but let me use his face  as practice. l finally upgraded to do my moms own make up on occasional basis.

With all this said l am not a fashion guru neither  l am a beauty guru but a girl who is starting  from no were and trying to get somewhere. This is going to be my journey with you all because trust me sometimes l look like a clown drenched in makeup and wonder whether Halloween has come too early well this shows l am still learning.

When it comes to life style well this was sparked off by someone dear  to me how he  loves every thing natural and organic and with this l am learning about food and the body and l am yet to try and share this with you all due to the fact that l have to see results before l can tell the whole world about my discovers.

I am happy to start this blog which is the best way to talk more about me apart from the you tube videos l make which are usually short and don’t give  the chance to reply to all your questions and comments.
