I actually had one so bad on the side of my chin that my cheek actually swelled up - no joke! I've now got a swollen septum on my nose because one has decided to set up shop there for a bit. I've also got a cold, so sneezing and blowing my nose is agony at the minute. Feeling sorry for myself much?
Because of this, I've really knuckled down and I'm sticking to a routine that I really like at the minute so I thought I'd share it.

It's no secret that I'm obsessed with buying make up and skincare products. When we were in Barcelona we visited the NYX and KIKO stores and I couldn't help but buy stuff I really didn't need but definitely wanted. After that little treat, I couldn't help but continue to treat myself.

Last week Tom and I went to Barcelona with our best friends for 3 nights. We stayed in this beautiful apartment which was a short walk away from pretty much everything and had a brilliant time. The apartment was lovely, really clean and had everything we'd need. I didn't get photos of the apartment but the following two photos are of the view from the balcony in the living/dining room.

A lovely friend on mine, Beckie Eschle, wrote a blog post recently about reacting to negative comments and it got me thinking. Beckie is a lovely girl, I've known her for around 7 years now and she is beautiful, she has a big heart, she cares for people, she's kind and she's also incredibly brave and inspirational. She talks very openly on her blog about mental health and shares tips and tricks that are working for her in order to help others - that's pretty awesome in itself!!
When I read that someone left her negative comments, it made me really angry. If they knew her, they wouldn't even think of associating those comments with her. I know that negative comments are a regular thing on social media and I always thought it was amongst the younger community, those who are still in school. But from opening my eyes a little and reading comments on friends instagram accounts, youtube comments and blog comments, it's really not just the younger community. I've seen women in their 40's leave really vile, nasty comments to people who they don't even know.
