My Bucket List (A Girl Can Dream)

Hey Lovelies!

.I noticed quite a few other bloggers are publishing their bucket list and it has inspired me to add mine. So, without further ado, here are the top 7 things I would like to do before it’s lights out. N.B swimming with sharks is not in the list!

1.Become A Storm Chaser

Yes, I know to some this might sound extreme, but it remains to be one of the biggest dreams of mine. Sadly, reality dictates this to stay in unobtainable dream world – at least until my two children are old and wise enough to manage without me for a few months. By which time, I highly suspect this will no longer be a much sought-after desire (given the whole age-related obstacle thing). But who Knows?

Taking a trip to Tornado Valley and chasing storms is an ultimate goal. Therefore, I am not quite ready to put this dream in its box.

2.Helicopter Over Niagara Falls

Visiting Niagara Falls would be incredible. Taking a helicopter ride over Niagara Falls would be out of this world.

3.The Dead Sea

Floating in the Dead Sea – no floaty required – how awesome would that be? Being a beauty fanatic, the concept of relaxing in the best, most natural health and beauty spa In The World would be incredible. Not only that, I am not too many hours away from another goal of mine – visiting the pyramids!

4.Learn To Fly An Aeroplane

What can I say? Who wouldn’t want to do this?

5.Star In A TV Series or Film

No, porno’s are not on the list. I’m thinking a cool part (preferably with Ryan Reynolds, Matt Damon, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp) I’m not fussy. Seriously though, my dream of being an actress has remained unwavering since the age of 10.

6.Write For Marie Claire

The obstacle is that most of the positions are in-house. Living too far away to deal with a daily commute (like 4 hours) means that I am one of many on their database awaiting a contributor vacancy to arise. Given I have found several extremely similar articles with my coined phrases (published shortly after mine) by another mainstream magazine shows I have everything such magazines are looking for. It is also incredibly frustrating as this (next to acting) is an ultimate dream.

7.World Domination

Just kidding…

Can’t Sleep? Check Out The Best Vegan-Friendly Sleep Sprays Around

Hey Lovelies!

Anxiety, juggling family chores with work, the strain of finances and realising its going to be a little while longer before we can feel the hot sunshine on our faces may all contribute to a serious lack of sleep. If lying in bed at 3 am, staring at the clock and wondering what the HELL you can do to get to sleep sounds familiar – do not fear. I have compiled a list of the best vegan-friendly sleep sprays that are guaranteed to give you some much-needed slumber time. Read on:

1.This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray, £18, thisworks.com

This award-winning and vegan-friendly Deep Sleep Pillow Spray works like a dream, literally! Combining a ‘Superblend’ of natural and proven ingredients such as lavender, vetivert and chamomile, this formula ensures your mind and body are totally calmed and soothed, leaving you to enjoy the best night’s sleep. There’s a reason it is award-winning, people.

2. Fat And The Moon Dream Weaver Mist, £16, www.thefuturekept.com

This has to be my favourite of all sleep sprays. After reviewing the Fat and The Moon Dream Weaver Mist a year ago, I have subsequently bought 2 more bottles – it’s that good. The reason I love this is, it actually contains a little magic (so I like to believe). What I mean by this is that the vegan-friendly product includes a blend of truly special natural ingredients which don’t simply ensure a good night’s sleep, but also awesome dreams!! One of its ingredients (Mugwort, artimesia vulgaris) has been used for centuries for its magical properties. This plant is meant to not merely provide good and vivid dreams, but to keep evil spirits at bay, whilst cleansing negative energy.

This fabulous American sleep spray also combines lavender hydrosol, homemade California poppy tincture and essential oils of clary sage and sage.

3.Made By Coopers Sleepy Head Room And Pillow Spray Mist, £13.50, www.madebycoopers.com

Last, but not least, let me introduce you to Made by Coopers Sleepy Head Room And Pillow Spray Mist. Containing chamomile, frankincense and lavender, this sleep mist works little miracles, providing you with an infusion of ultimate calm to give you the relaxation you need to guarantee a good 8 hours of blissful slumber!

I love all of these vegan-friendly products – but if you lean a little towards the spiritual side or wish you had a nice dream just once in a while, I recommend the Dream Weaver Mist.

Have you tried any of these (or other) sleep sprays and which one is your favourite? Leave me a message in the comments below – and happy Friday people xx

 

New Year Resolutions: Make 2018 Your Best Year Yet

Hey lovelies,

Happy New Year to you all.

I am terrible at keeping New Year’s resolutions – to the point where I almost decided not to make any this year. Then I thought on – what is stopping so many of us from sticking to our heartfelt and well-intended plans? Why shouldn’t 2018 be THE year for everything we desire to actually become a reality?

Should any of you be contemplating your New Year resolutions, before you pledge your area of self-improvement, I have compiled a checklist that may just help us to breeze our resolutions until they are totally IRL.

1.Be Realistic

For instance, if we were to make a pledge similar to that of K Kardashian’s (less phone time and being more in the moment) probably we all would succeed with flying colours. I am a great believer in everyone having the ability to achieve anything to which they set their mind. However, if your dreams are sky-high with several mountains blocking the way, make a plan with realistic goals to be achieved within feasible time frames. Some of the best things take time, and this is ok.

 2.Make Notes

Write out your goals or dreams, stick them on the fridge, by your bed, on the mirror – everywhere. Read them each day when you get up and before you go to sleep. Pledge to do one thing each day (or even each week) that brings your dream closer. Visualizing your dreams and repeating this pattern will condition your brain into action.

3.Fitness

If your goal is to lose weight or become healthier, consider the whole situation from your diet plan, methods of cooking, to exercise. Choose an exercise you do not find mundane – if you love music take your headphones. Rather than planning on running miles each day, plan instead, on walking briskly for 20 minutes each day – this is actually better for you, is more effective and will be an easier task to accomplish.

4.Don’t Give Up.

Whatever your dreams, goals or plans, remember you can achieve them. If you really want something, never give up. Having a down day is inevitable – but when it’s done, get up shake it off and remember why you want the goal. Write the reasons down – this will help reinstate its value and spur you on when you need it most.

5.Saving Money

If money is an issue – give your friend or family a jar to look after that you cannot touch. Pledge to put a little – even if it’s just £5 each week. You will be amazed at how quickly it can mount up. Before you know it you will be jetting off on that American dream getaway. Yay!!!
