6 Signs You Will Be Fighting Over The Bathroom

Hey Lovelies!

I hope you are all having a good week. We all know and hope equality should extend to all areas in men and women’s lives – but if we are honest, do we really want total equality when it comes to bathroom usage? We love the fact that men are taking care of their skin like never before. However, does anyone stop and think about the constant battle over will bag the bathroom first each day? Should you be about to take the next big step and move in with your man and are worrying that their self-preening may overtake yours, read on. Here are 6 warning signs there may be problems afoot:

1.He “Borrows” Your Moisturiser

According to news reports, Ryan Reynolds recently prepared for the Golden Globes with a variety of skincare products, including lip balm, toner and MAC Set Powder. Now, if they are bringing their own to the table, that’s probably okay (if in doubt, see above). However, I don’t know about you, but my moisturiser and serum are 2 of my most treasured possessions and at risk of sounding selfish – I won’t share them. If your fella is borrowing your skincare products, this may be a sign of things to come.

2.His Eyebrows Look Better Than Yours

He may just be really lucky in the looks department, but when it comes to eyebrows, the general rule is that some amount of effort is needed – particularly if his eyebrows are appearing neater and prettier than yours. Serious bathroom time, people.

3.Always A Bath, Never A Shower

Does he frequently refuse a shower in favour of a bath?

If so, logically speaking this is going to take a big chunk of time (possibly every day) even before the mirror time takes place. That is unless your fella is like mine and literally does everything (EVERYTHING!) in the bath.

4.You Already Fight Over The Bathroom

If you are about to take the plunge and move in together, my guess is you have probably spent a few nights at each other’s houses. During these times, cast your mind back to whether or not you have had to stand with your legs crossed waiting for him to vacate. There’s only so much time someone can spend on the loo, surely? Red flag, ladies.

5.He Knocks On The Door

When you are in the bathroom, does he knock on the door impatiently? Do you have to rush? #Bigclues!

6.If You Set Your Alarm Early And Still Have To Wait

On the occasions that you spend together, you decide to set your alarm so that you get bathroom time without stress, only to discover your guy has also read “The Three Little Pigs” and got there earlier still.

Should any of these signs be familiar, you may have an insight into what the future holds. If you happen to be someone who isn’t that fussed if you leave the house looking the worse for wear, whilst your other half appears so sparkly, he could be off to a modelling shoot, you may want to revise the living situation (or at least make sure your new place has two bathrooms).

Happy Friday people xx

4 Ways Geranium Oil Can Transform Your Skin

Hey lovelies!

Review: Geranium Oil

Recently, my skin has really struggled (I’m blaming the winter and central heating). It’s as if the universe hates me as somehow, I’ve managed to accomplish dry areas AND oily zones with the added bonus of spots. Great, huh? Cue the magical properties of geranium oil. I tried this remarkable overlooked oil on my skin for 2 weeks and I can now look in the mirror and refer to my face as not just a complexion, but a radiant one (instead of an insanely good impersonation of moon rock).

Geranium oil actually works little miracles for many conditions. Should you be struggling to get your complexion in check, on feel your hair has a higher resemblance to straw, read on. The best bit is that it only costs a few pounds! Now that’s my kind of skincare.

Combining essential fatty-acids, this oil will go a long way to ensuring the skin is in optimal health, which in turn will keep your skin looking radiant and youthful. Furthermore, it’s incredible astringent qualities aid in firming and tightening of the skin. Take that, fine lines!

An imbalance of hormones can cause all manner of problems. This oil is highly beneficial in restoring hormonal equilibrium and therefore, a brighter, clearer and more luminous complexion. Hooray!

The Best 6 Tips To Keep Your Mind Sharp

Hey lovelies,

With a recent study claiming that women’s brains stay active for longer than men’s, I thought I would compile a list of the best tips that can help us keep our minds sharp. When I was in my teens, walking into a room and forgetting what I wanted was funny – but nowadays it’s a tad concerning.

Some of these methods may be quite surprising but have been proven to be very effective. Read on:

1.Use Your Opposite hand

This is the one I found quite interesting and has been shown to actually connect new neurons and help your brain to adapt. When brushing your hair or your teeth – If you are left handed, use the right, and vice versa. It’s amazing how successful this can be in keeping the brain sharp.

2.Try A Puzzle

This is one I find difficult as I really can’t stand crosswords or sudoku. However, by pushing yourself to tackle a code word puzzle of some sort, it definitely helps to sharpen those wits.

3.Sleep

I really can’t state enough just how important getting enough sleep is in keeping your brain functioning well. In the same breath, too much sleep can be detrimental to your physical and mental wellbeing. Usually 7-8 hours is sufficient, but you need to take age and any illnesses, etc. into consideration.

4.Learn A Foreign Language

OK so (unless you are like Joey from Friends) you may be thinking you need to have some serious amount of spare time to learn an entire foreign language, but if you break it up into a couple of half hour sessions a week, it becomes a much more realistic possibility. However, it does take a bit of will power.

5.Math

Just the word makes ‘math’ makes me go into meltdown mode – but doing a few maths sums in your head truly does work wonders in keeping your mind sharp. Motivation does kick in when your son repeatedly asks you maths questions (and then answers them faster than you and actually correctly).

6.Music

This would be my fave one of all. Listening to music actually works to improve brain function. No need to find excuses now!
