Why You Shouldn’t Be Afraid Of Change

There’s a lot of change going on in my life right now. It’s often viewed as a scary thing. It’s challenging, it breaks us out of our day-to-day routines and pushes us out of our comfort zone. I’ve not written a personal post in a while and whilst I’m curled up on my sofa reflecting on how my life is evolving, I thought I’d share the positives that change has brought me.

The Autumn Workwear Edit

How I Tackle Blocked Pores

On the whole, my skin has behaved over the last 5 or so years. I was fortunate that I didn’t suffer from hormonal acne like some of my friends, just getting the occasional whopper (and I mean whopper!) every now and again. Whilst spots have not really been an issue, blocked pores have, sounds kind of icky, right?  My key issue is blackheads, on my chin, my nose and occasionally my cheeks.

I’m now in a place where I feel that I can talk about what has happened in the past, my journey over the years and how it’s got me to a positive place where I feel content and settled. If you’re reading this and have been affected by divorce in some form or another, it may offer a little insight into how I’ve handled it and that feeling the way you do or have done isn’t unusual.
