6 Things I Loved In July

6 Things I Loved In July, favourites, lifestyle, fitness, fitbit, pokemon go, asana, skincare

July disappeared in the blink of an eye and it scared me. I don't know how else to describe this month other than to say it reminded me of a StairMaster. Climbing up, burning through time and energy but not reaching a destination. We all have our struggles and part of the reason I started writing these monthly roundups was to get me to reflect on the positive aspects of the month. For every mistake or branded failure I've made this month, I've learnt something new and in all honesty, none of those "negatives" have taken me further away from my end goals. But rather, they've allowed me to craft more stable and efficient routes towards my personal successes. 

The Hero Of Exfoliating Pads: NEOGEN Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Wine

NEOGEN Dermalogy is a slightly more underground Korean skincare brand that's finally making its way into the spotlight. I first heard about this brand via Soko Glam's blog (The Klog) and was convinced I needed their star product, the exfoliating pads, in my skincare stash. They are highly acclaimed for their innovations in skincare (backed up by thorough clinical testing) and have an amazing research and development team behind them. I believe that some of the larger brands also use their innovations so that's definitely saying something. 

Fast forward to the beginning of June when I discovered that Yesstyle had begun stocking this brand and this skincare haul happened. Originally, this post was supposed to highlight many NEOGEN products but because I have so much to say about the Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Wine it's getting its own blog post alongside a standing ovation.

Multi-Masking With Origins + Giveaway

Multi-Masking With Origins, face mask, skincare
Multi-masking is a trend that's been around for a while and was probably crowned one of the top skincare trends of 2015.  However, it's not ready to disappear yet and has been making big moves up the trend ladder in these last few months. Particularly, with the release of L'Oreal's new masks, it's an idea that has been introduced to many a beauty routine. 

Of course, you can use any masks you choose to take part in the multi-masking trend. If you're a skincare junkie, like me, then you're probably already going to have your fair share of options on the bathroom shelf. I'm going to be using a selection from the variety of masks Origins have to offer. So, how about we all give this multi-masking thing a go tonight? 

Creating An Editorial Calendar With Asana

The best skill I learnt from blogging every day for nearly two months was how to turn my brain dump of blog post ideas and inspirations into an editorial calendar. It's a layer of organisation that I found necessary for me in order to continue blogging consistently. Whether I'm posting daily or 3 times a week, using Asana to create an editorial calendar has allowed me to organise my thoughts and not feel overwhelmed when I sit down to write.

Before we begin, I have to give full credit to my discovering of Asana to Melyssa Griffin. She mentioned it in one of her live video streams and I got set up almost right away. Originally, I had signed up and adopted its features strictly for work. It allowed me to organise all the sections of my business and lay out what there was still to do and assign the tasks to other members of the team (whom I invited to join via email). I was enjoying it so much and it was so much easier than Evernote that I decided to migrate my blogging notes over too.

10 Things That Happened When I Downloaded Pokemon Go

You're probably sick of hearing about Pokemon Go. Personally, I love it and will admit that I have been one to watch game play on YouTube. Something I haven't done since my N64 days. Pokemon Go has created an all round boost of positive vibes and all ages fun, for the most part, and it's something that I welcome with open arms. Today is a light post that beings with me rambling and ends with me rambling some more...about Pokemon. Let me know if you can relate to any of these and if you've been playing the game.
