Things I'm loving RN.

I was recommended the Decleor Aroma Solutions Prolagene Gel by my BF's sister-in-law. She had struggled with adult acne until switching up her skincare and swears by this gel so I thought I would give it a go! At first, I was breaking out left right and centre (I put that down to my pores being clogged up with crap) but after a couple of weeks of using it I truly noticed the difference! My skin is so clear and is instantly firmer when I apply the gel to my face and blemished parts of my body (shoulders and back). 

I work at a spa that sells Decleor products, a few of the girls at work say they use it for not only blemished skin but if they or their children get cuts as it helps to heal the skin straight away! I think it's so important to look after your skin from a young age as it'll reduce the signs of ageing later on in life which is why I don't mind paying out for it. It's on the pricey side as a luxury skincare product at £40.00 but a little goes a long way. 

I'm about half way through reading Dolly Alderton's new book 'everything I know about love' and am absolutely loving it! It's so relatable, in fact a bit too relatable as it's making me remember all the bad dates and poor decisions I made when I was at my peak sexually horn-dog stage. Lol. 

So far, Dolly has taken me on an honest depiction of her love life, from good old fashioned MSN messenger to crazy drunken adventures with her friends. At times it's side splittingly funny and I just can't put it down. 

Health & Fitness
I'm doing it, I'm finally doing it. I'm getting fit. I've been sat on my bum feeling miserable about my weight for too long so it's time to do something about it. Last week I was the heaviest I have ever been (coz I've lost a few lbs since) and I was terrified of stepping on the scales. I have promised myself to exercise intensely 3 times a week at least, eat healthily and drink lots of water. 

The water part has become exceedingly easier since Stu bought me a Chilly's flask. I am in love. My water stays cold and fresh for hours! & it's rose gold & it's got my name engraved on it ;) so flashy! 

If you don't already know, I've started up a food blog separate to called My Foodie Friend (Insta: @myfoodiefriendamber) because I felt like I was writing about too many topics that didn't compliment one another on my blog. It's SO much easier and appeases organised me greatly.  

My latest meal favourite is pictured above: whole wheat noodles, king prawns, mushrooms, brocoli in teriyaki sauce (just a tiny bit as it's quite sugary) with a fried egg and a sprinkling of sesame seeds. Nom. 


I'm also trying to build on a new routine with fitness, food and blogging which means I will be challenging myself to stick to a blogging schedule - I'll be uploading Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. Yes, three times a week. No, I don't know what time but I have had a bucket load of motivation recently and I'm ready to roll with it (read my post on getting more real).

What have you been loving lately?
