Goals for the Rest of 2018.

Blogger goals 2018

Woah. Hold the phone, tomorrow is August? Mind.blown.

Thanks to this wee fact, you could say this post is somewhat late to the party when it comes to 'year goals', but I guess it's never too late to set yourself some targets in place to help to motivate you and keep you in check?

So without further ado...

Diet
My goals are very heavily focused around wellbeing (as you will soon discover reading this blog post, ha!), and where better place to start than diet, no? Over the past few months I've seriously started to pay more attention to what I'm putting in my body. I've noticed a big change from doing so already, from an improvement in my overall skintone, to the strength of my nails (even though I have a terrible, terrible habit of biting them - bonus goal to add to this list?!). But I could still improve. We have a teeny tiny kitchen in our house, but due to a sudden influx of cookery books in our humble abode, I'm really keen to start whipping up a storm with more delicious recipes. I certainly won't be shying away from chocolate, but I'm also aiming to munch on a lot more kale and broccoli.

Yoga
I've heard so many incredible things about yoga, with the physical benefits it brings and the improvement in your overall mentality. Therefore I recently made a trip to the shops to pick up a mat, and I'm very much looking forward to trying out the (supposedly excellent) Yoga With Adriene experience.

Save save save
So myself and my other half are officially adulting in our own home, however the goal is to of course eventually own our own property. Therefore, saving is high up on the agenda of goals for the distant future. A very exciting goal of course! *Somewhere with a nice garden and a bath are obviously must-haves for said property.*

Positive vibes only
Since the start of the year, I've really had to evaluate quite a few areas of my life (for one reason or another). Bad health and stress are big no-nos for me... which is obviously easier said than done sometimes. It's meant that any toxicity is kept at arms length, perspective is a must and that wellbeing stays at the forefront of my mind. Basically, it can be hard at times but looking after yourself and staying as positive as can be is SO important. Gotta live the good life!

Be more daring with my wardrobe
Well this is a bit of a random one, but adding more pops of colour and print to my wardrobe is something I'm v. keen to do. Not only does it mix it up from the *primarily black* attire in my closet, but it really is one mega mood-booster if you ask me. This Orange Knot Front Topshop Shirt was giving me all kinds of joy as I was venturing around Edinburgh a few weeks back!

L'Occitane Aqua Réotier Collection.

L'Occitane Aqua Réotier Collection

With the current heatwave we're experiencing here in the UK (holy guacamole, how hot is it though?), you could say this is the perfect beauty-shaped launch...

So naturally, when some of L'Occitane's Aqua Réotier collection* landed on my doorstep, I very quickly knew we were going to be BFFs. Consisting of five standout products, ranging from a cleanser to a spritz, each gem is enriched with all of the good stuff that thirsty skin craves (well hello, hyaluronic acid).

L'Occitane Aqua Réotier range

The range is essentially designed to used as be a four-part process:

1- Cleanse with the Water Gel Cleanser (£19)
2- Prep with the Moisture Prep Essence (£22)3- Add an extra oomph of hydration with the Ultra-Thirst Quenching Gel* (£28) or  Ultra-Thirst Quenching Cream* (£28)
4- Finish and refresh with the Fresh Moisturising Mist* (£14)

Both Aqua Réotier moisturisers* are pretty much the dream when it comes to this time of year. Refreshing, non-greasy and quick to absorb. It's a yes from me. The light, aquatic fragrance also gets a huge thumbs up, as does the cooling consistency.

I'm certainly not alone in my positive thoughts, though. A test was carried out on 39 lovely ladies over 28 days, and the results are pretty damn impressive. Think high scores all round for the likes of hydration, silkiness and overall appearance.

Unsurprisingly, like all L'Occitane products, a little really does go a long way, so I can definitely see both lasting me through the Summer and beyond.

As for the Aqua Réotier Fresh Moisturising Mist*, well, I was pretty much guaranteed to be a #1 fan. My obsession with cooling spritzes started way-back-when with the Vitamin E spray from The Body Shop, and this is just as glorious, if not a little more cooling (I'm guessing the can container is to thank for that). If you're in-need of a wee pick-me-up throughout the day, this is it.

Overall, another top-notch launch from L'Occitane. I'd highly recommend trying for yourself through the Summer months and I'd love to know your thoughts if you do!
