March Ins and Outs

Hey girls so I know that this is a little bit late, but I have only just realized that I haven't done my In and Outs for last month! Silly Kim.


  1. Studying. As you all know I haven't really had much motivation to study lately, but in the past month I have really gotten back in to it.
  2. Reading. I've been reading a bit more this past month, not a lot but more than in February 
  3. Clearer skin. I have been loving how my skin has cleared up. It looks great and I feel more confident because of it.

  1. Wearing a jacket. The past month the weather has been warm and I have been able to get away with only wearing a hoodie. Unfortunately though it has changed and is now very cold :(
  2. Having energy. Since getting back my motivation for studying I have lost some sleep, which is unfortunate, but I think I should really get used to that, seeing as I have a lot of coursework to do and exams to revise for.
  3. Having a life ha-ha. Same reason as my energy ha-ha. Although the past week I have planned a bunch of things for summer, so I will have a life again in a few months ha-ha
What are your Ins and Outs of March? I know I don't have many but I really didn't do much exciting things last month :(.
I hope you all enjoyed this post and don't forget to leave me your Ins and Outs.

Also, I will be doing a blog sale in the next couple of days, would any of you be interested in buying from me? The products have hardly been used, and I am trying to get rid of a bunch of things. Let me know if you would buy, because I don't want to set it all up and no-body buy.

Have a beautiful day girls and DFTBA

Spring Clean - update and a new week

Hey beauties I hope you are all well.

This week was quite easy for me I found. As you know I read quotes, looked at pictures and listened to happy songs every day. I journalled everyday too, which was good. I found that doing that was the best way for me to get rid of any negative feelings I had at the time. I plan on keeping these up as they really did change my mood. I will still blog about them if you like.
How did you guys do this week?

For my next 'Spring Clean' I thought I would work on my body. I know what you're thinking, 'Why fix the outside if you haven't fixed the inside?' Well, in my mind doing it this way will work better for me. Plus I have been slowly cleaning up my diet.

I only have 4 goals this week but they are:

  1. Continue each of the body tips I shared in my 'Prepare for summer' series, feetlegshair, face, hands, and body/skin.
  2. Do an ab workout everyday
  3. Do yoga every night
  4. Continue my calf-raises in the morning and my squats at night
So that's my goals. Are any of you doing this? If so what are your goals? Good luck girls.

Prepare for summer - Hair

Hey girls, another week, another way to prepare for summer. This week I am going to talk to you all about your hair.

To me your hair should be natural in the summer. Perhaps with a few highlights a couple of shades lighter than your hair colour, although the sun will do this for you.

I think in the summer hair looks nice when it has been shaped around your face like in the picture above. To me it is perfect summer hair.

If you have naturally wavy hair, you are lucky, as I believe that wavy hair, particularly beach waves, are perfect for summer. Although you can achieve these by using salt spray on damp hair and scrunching if your hair is naturally straight. Or you could put your hair into plaits/braids and leave them to dry.
I tend to not use much heat on my hair, especially during summer. What I suggest doing is, getting your hair styled and to stop using heat. Your hair will be healthier and look gorgeous.
You can use products if you like, however I chose not too, as my hair is naturally wavy anyway. Besides I love the completely natural look.

I know that this was a short post, but I didn't really have many tips other than not using any heat on your hair. I will start doing hair of the day posts, so you can see my favourite summer hairstyles, but that won't be for another couple of weeks.

I hope that this post was useful in some way for some of you. And if you have any hair tips, please let me know.

Now that I have done the entire body, I will be moving on to clothes, accessories, and make-up over the next few weeks. So please check back if you are interested in those.

Have a beautiful day and DFTBA

Things that made me smile - 02/04/2012


This picture reminds me of me and my best friend :)


I love Audrey Hepburn's quotes, they are completely inspiring, particularly this one.


This song always makes me feel better.

I hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know what made you smile today.

Things that made me smile today

Hey girls, hope you are all well. As promised here is the things that made me smile today.


Isn't this absolutely gorgeous? :)


For the past 2 days I have been watching Harry Potter and Die Hard non stop, and I am loving a quote from each movie, but want to share my all time favourite one with you. This quote actually makes me feel good whenever I read or see it and it is:


I have been obsessed with Lady Godiva since Alex Day first put out the song. However today I was listening to some of the remixes and find this one rather funny.

Hope you enjoyed this post. I will be sure to continue this tomorrow.

Spring Clean - update and a new week

Hey girls, I am so sorry that this is later than I anticipated. I planned on writing it whilst watching a movie, but then I got distracted by my friend on Skype, and he has only just gone.

This week has gone well. It turned out that I didn't have as much to organise as I thought, therefore it didn't take me as long. My room is sorted as much as I could do, however something's I wasn't able to get rid off, because I didn't want them to go to waste, but because they've been used I can't give them to charity. Therefore I was thinking of having a blog sale, just to get rid of some make-up I have but never use. They've mostly never been used more than 3 time, so if you would be interested please let me know. Other than that, I have just decided that I won't be buying unessential things, and instead just be using what I have. In my eyes, the less things I have to pack, the better, because then I don't have to decide what I want with me and what I want my parents to take, although I do have ideas.

This week, I wanted to work on my mind. So I do have a few goals for this, and they are:

  1. Journal at least once a day
  2. Listen to happy songs
  3. Read inspiring quotes
  4. Look at happy/pretty pictures.
I know it's not many, but as I am away and I am revising amongst other things, I thought that these were the best things to do to give me a happy mind. 

I planned on sharing my songs, quotes and pictures with you nightly, but the hotel I will be staying at doesn't have free internet access and because I don't know how much it costs, I'm not taking my laptop with me, so I won't have internet. I will post them nightly until I go though, so be sure to check them out.

How are you guys getting on with your Spring Clean? Let me know in the comments below, I would love to find out.

Have a beautiful day/night. Dream big dreams

New Years Resolutions - Update

Hello girls, I hope you are all doing well. Happy April to you all. This year is going so fast. A little bit too fast for my liking, as I only have 1 month and 15 days until my first exam, which is a little bit scary.

Anyway, here are my New Years Resolutions updates, I hope you enjoy. And as always, leave me a comment letting me know how all of you are getting on.

  1. Follow my skin care routine day and night. 
  2. Brush my teeth every day and night.
  3. Take my vitamins everyday. 
  4. Eat cleaner/healthier.
  5. Exercise at least 3 times a week.
  6. Work harder at school and work, so I can get into university.
  7. Read 6 books by the summer holidays. 
  8. Appreciate all that I have more often.
  9. Do something that scares me at least once a month.
  10. Learn to play the ukulele.

  1. Follow my skin care routine day and night: I have been doing this pretty much every single night. Occasionally I will miss a night, mostly because it is really late, I'm stressed and just want sleep. Sometimes I skip the water and face wash and just use a face wipe/baby wipe, then do the rest of my routine at night, but I try not to do this very often. I did a post on my skin care routine if you want to see it. 
  2. Brush my teeth every day and night: Again, pretty much every single night. Missing nights for the same reason as my face.
  3. Take my vitamins everyday: This is the only resolution I have never broken and I am so proud of myself for this. 
  4. Eat cleaner/healthier: This one has been up and down all month, some days I do amazing and others I basically only eat junk food. I don't know why I am struggling with this one so much, but I am going to try harder this month, starting right now, and I really hope I can do it. Can I have some encouragement, please?
  5. Exercise at least 3 times a week: I exercise every single day. What I do isn't much, but I feel like, even if I only do 5 minutes, it's better than nothing. I do calf-raises every morning when I'm brushing my teeth. I used to do it at night as well, but I've changed that to squats, so that my entire legs are getting a good workout. It really works too, my legs feel so much more toned and I love it.
  6. Work harder at school and work, so I can get into university: I am slowly getting my motivation back for doing school work. It's hard but I'm so glad I'm doing it. I know I'm going to be unbearable to live with over the next few months, as I will be incredibly stressed, but it will be worth it.
  7. Read 6 books by the summer holidays: I'm struggling with this one. However I hope to finish at least 2 book over the Easter break, which will bring my total up to 3. Then I plan on finishing another book over the next month, meaning it would work out at a book a month, which takes some pressure off of me.
  8. Appreciate all that I have more often: This month has been hard for me, however as the month ended, I did feel like I was appreciating all that I had more. However, you can't expect me to love everything all of the time ha-ha.
  9. Do something that scares me at least once a month: I did do this one, however I would rather not go into it, as it is something rather personal, I hope you don't mind :)
  10. Learn to play the ukulele: I have been practising this month, although I still can't play. I hope to get better over the next month though and I am excited to keep practising.
Well that is all of my resolutions. How are you guys doing? Let me know in the comments below :)

I have another post planned for today, so please check back later.

Talk to you all soon.

Have a beautiful day and DFTBA
