Well hello there September! There was a time when bloggers used to do ‘favourite’ posts monthly, myself included. While I haven’t done one in the some time, this month there were too many lovely things that I wanted to talk about to not do one. August, much like the majority of other months, has absolutely flown by. Living in the UK, it has only very briefly actually felt like Summer but nonetheless, it’s been a good month. I’ve decided to do things a little differently, take a look after the jump…

For the majority of us, life is constantly busy. There is always something that needs doing, our to-do lists are forever going and our minds always seem to be whirling with this or that. It’s likely you’ve just come to acknowledge that “this is just how it is” but implementing self-care where you can is vital for your mental health and well-being.

So naturally, everyone is terribly excited about the Naked Heat palette. It’s not surprising considering how bloody gorgeous it is, but this week I thought I’d take a look at some other Urban Decay products worthy of winning your affections. Urban Decay will forever be one of those brands I turn to. Not only is their packaging incredibly high quality but so is are the products themselves and as they cover such a wide range of options, there really is something for everyone.

To be perfectly honest with you, I very nearly didn’t post this recipe for my caramel cookie bars. It wasn’t because I didn’t thoroughly enjoy them (they were epic, FYI), but simply because they didn’t look as perfect as I’d imagined in my head. I’d wanted clean cut layers but because I hate making my own caramel and opted for a cheat version instead (sorry Mum…), the caramel didn’t set as well and I was left with gooey layers which spilled over the sides. I received only sheer enthusiasm from anyone who gobbled one but I guess I was looking at it from a purely aesthetic, bloggers view. Figures, huh? So I’ve posted these bad boys anyway, purely because if I don’t say so myself, they taste amazing. Naturally they’re not going to win any healthy eating awards but damn, they’re worth it.

For months now I’ve been umming and ahhing whether I should write a post on my recent health and fitness upheaval, unsure whether it would be of interest to anyone. I finally decided to bite the bullet, my logic being that if I can help even one person out there or get you thinking about your own life, it would definitely be worth it. So six months ago I decided something needed to change. I wasn’t unhappy per se, but I knew changes needed to be made. Combining changes to my diet and fitness, I managed to lose one a half stone. I have not only lost 10% of my body weight, but I now have a healthy BMI but most importantly I feel so much better too. If you fancy finding out how I finally did it, read on after the jump…
