    Let’s get ready for Spring

    Surely the snow has gone?! Let’s all cross our fingers and hope it doesn’t return any time soon.

    We’ve finally made it to Spring after what has felt like the longest Winter ever… I always get this feeling at this time of year that I need to make some changes, have a big clear out and sort my life out. There’s something about warmer weather that makes me feel so much more motivated.

    Here’s how I like to get ready for the springtime: 

    Sort out my wardrobe

    This is on my to-do list over the next couple of weeks. I like to get rid of all the clothes that no longer fit me or that I no longer wear. I always try to be pretty harsh on myself as well and I don’t keep things for the sake of it. Once I’ve sorted everything out I always donate the bits that are in good condition to a local charity shop.

    Change up my haircare

    I find over time my hair gets used to the shampoo that I’m using and it never feels like it cleans my hair so well. I’ve recently started using the Garnier Ulitmate Blends Coconut Water & Aloe Vera shampoo. OH MY GOODNESS, it smells freakin amazing! The smell honestly just reminds me of summer and holidays and it makes me so damn happy. Also, it does an amazing job of washing my hair and keeping the moisture locked in.

    Exercise a little more 

    I bloody hate exercise. Well actually I like swimming but there was a fire at my local pool around 15 months ago and it still hasn’t re-opened!! So I had to get a gym membership instead 🙁 I’m not going to lie, I hate the gym. But I’m really trying to push myself to exercise a little more during the springtime. I have a holiday coming up in about 90 days and right now I ain’t really looking my best haha. If anyone can recommend an enjoyable exercise then please do?!

    Reflect 

    I think that spring is the perfect time to sit and reflect and maybe make some goals going forward. I’ve been looking back over my Goals for 2018 and it’s good to see how I’m getting along. In fact, I may do an update post soon as to how my goals are going so far. By looking back and reflecting I’m then able to see what to do moving forward.

    How are you preparing for Spring this year?
