You might have noticed that I didn’t upload a post yesterday, this was because I was absolutely exhausted. Being in bad need of sleep isn’t healthy and can really wear you down if you go for long periods of time without sufficient sleep. In our busy lives it’s easy to forget that we need to take time to wind down and catch up on our beauty sleep so I thought I’d create a self-care style post reminding you that you need to get around eight hours of sleep each night to perform to the best of your ability.
Going without sleep can cause a lack of focus, irritability and in general, a lack of enjoyment for life. Physically, it’s not good for your body, but also socially, it impacts your relationships as being super tired can force you to act in a way that isn’t like you.
So how do I insure I get a good night’s sleep?
One of the main things that ensures a good night’s sleep is making sure that you’re relaxed before getting into bed. Try turning off electronics before you begin to settle down, get all of your work/homework sorted before you’re getting ready for bed and spend some time doing breathing exercises so that your whole body is relaxed and your mind is peaceful.
How do you make sure you get a good night’s sleep?

First of all, can we just appreciate that pun in the post title? Soap & Glory product names are more than often puns or a play on words so I thought I’d channel that idea and create my own, so there you go.
My skin has been very tired and dehydrated recently, so when I saw that this face mask was perfect for dull and lacklustre skin I was very excited. It was just what I needed to get my skin back on track.
I’m currently in my final year of sixth form (the last year of schooling in Britain) and of course the work is tough. I do subjects that require an awful lot of work, especially textiles which is mainly coursework based, and I often receive the question, ‘how do you fit your blog in?!’.
I didn’t post yesterday and the reason why is because I had a bad day. To be honest, admitting that is actually a bit scary because I swore to myself that I wouldn’t let my mood affect my blogging, but setting that impossible task for myself is something I need to overcome. Of course, bad days happen. Of course, your mood affects your life. I’ve been putting off writing this all day, in fact, I was going to leave it and start afresh on Monday but sharing this kind of stuff is what keeps me a real blogger. Only sharing the edited highlights of my life where I’m showing off a new dress or lipstick isn’t what my life is like on a daily basis.
Being sad is a normal part of life and pretending that the bad days don’t happen isn’t an effective way of dealing with them. Accepting their existence and working your way through them is the only way to a happy life. I don’t want to pretend I’m happy all the time, because the truth is that I’m not, sometimes I find life impossibly hard and pretending like I don’t is like pretending to be someone I’m not. I never want to do that on here, I want to showcase the real me.
Next time you’re having a bad day, remember it’s a normal part of life. There has to be a little rain to make a rainbow!
