Q&A: Answers!

Hey everyone!

 

Hope you are doing well. Let me just start off with apologising for my absence. Unfortunately I was really ill last month and have also been focusing on my final year exams so as you can imagine it has been hectic.

I am finally going to post the Q&A that some of you participated in. I hope you enjoy it! Here goes:

 

If you could wish for 1 thing, what would it be, and why?

 

To pass my final year of uni with flying colours as I have worked so hard for this and it will determine my future.

 

 

What’s one piece of advice you’d give your 10 year old self?

Just relax and have fun. Life will get more serious later ha-ha . Also, 18 is not an old age as I remember thinking it was!

 

 

 

If you had to pick a different niche for your blog, what would it be?

Maybe a cooking blog where I would post my recipes as I love food so maybe I could share that passion with others.

 

 

 

What was your favourite film of last year?

I love films so it’s hard to say! I think I would say Down by love as it has inspired me to write about it in my dissertation. This is a film about a love story between a prison warden and an inmate. It also reminds me of being in France as that’s where I watched it.

 

What are your perfect bath salts products?

 

I don’t use bath salts myself but I do like bath bombs. Usually I love to get these at lush as they have a super strong scent; however I don’t think they are natural. Alternatively I love to get bubble bath liquids from body shop. My favourite one is the honey bubble bath gel!

 

Lots of love,

The First In-Shower Body Moisturiser from Nivea Review

Hey all,

I’ve been quite busy lately as I am getting ready to take my driving test and going back to uni!

Today I will be doing a review of the new Nivea in shower moisturiser that really sparked my interest.  As a big fan of body shop body butters I was keen to see how good the Nivea product was.

What ‘fit’ and ‘healthy’ really means…

We are all so conditioned to “know” what fit is supposed to look like. According tot the dictionary fit is being ‘in good physical condition; in good health’, yet we often mistake what this actually is. Instead of focusing on the health of someone we somehow automatically assume that someone with shredded abs, popping’ biceps, and a huge, lifted booty is ‘fit’. This is accentuated with what Instagram tells us as we see millions of fitness models who seem to display this attributes and we assume that they are healthy.

And I don’t doubt that people with those physiques are lean and fit, but you shouldn’t feel weaker if you don’t look that way. Fitness cannot always be displayed in such ways so you have your own story and may actually be fitter than these models.

This is because having abs doesn’t automatically make you fit. In fact you may be the opposite. Having abs may be due to genetics meaning that you can eat crap yet still have abs but does that mean you’re fit? NO. Also certain fitness models take steroids (which I am totally against) making themselves look big and muscly yet they neglect their cardio and are also visually strong but not in real terms.

So I want to challenge you to think about what being ‘fit’ really means for a second and I’d like to hear your own definition.

Lots of love,

Charlotte xoxo
