My Love for Korean Dramas #6

You guys already know I’m heavily into K-pop, I’m not sure if I’ve every really mentioned that I love K-dramas too! I love them so much I sometimes wish my life was a K-drama!

I think in all I’ve watched about 13-14, not very many but I intend on watching a lot more! I have just finished Love Rain and absolutely loved it! I really want to review it for you guys! What do you think? I want to talk more on K-pop, Dramas and Korea I’m just never really sure if you guys would enjoy it. It would be my ultimate dream to travel to Korea, and someday, I will get there. But for the moment I’ll just stick to my K-dramas, K-pop, K-food and K-skincare :P.

Let me know below, would you like to hear more about my Korean obsession and reviews? I hope so, I know I’d really enjoy doing it!

7 Day Post Challenge

All these challenges are coming about quite often now and I absolutely love doing them. I love doing them so much that I decided to create my own(forgive me if this idea has already been done)!

I sat for a while trying to figure out what I could do that would actually be a challenge for me and decided that I could do a post a day for seven days, as you should all know that I’m terrible at posting regularly.

So as of tomorrow I will be posting daily for seven days and I’m going to tag Emmimori to start it too.

The rules? there are none, just have fun! All you have to do is tag another blogger to pass it on!

Happy posting!!

My Personal Highlights of 2016

If you ask random people how they feel 2016 went for them, I can guarantee you the majority of them will say it was a bad year. In some ways I can agree that it wasn’t the best as I’ve had my fair share of downfalls, but I just learned to look past them.

I feel that sometimes we can take a lot of things for granted. I wasn’t able to do the things I wanted to this year like buy my own house and make a decent amount of money, but I  would still say some amazing things happened that I will never forget.

Here are my personal highlights of 2016:

I Travelled

It was just a seven day holiday to Corfu with Kieron but it was the most amazing experience that I got to share with him. It was the week of my birthday and on that day, we took a day trip to Albania. It was one of the most beautiful places I have even seen. Over the course of the holiday Kieron went scuba diving. I’ve never done it before and was so nervous but I thoroughly enjoyed it! During a trip to the beach we also got incredibly which was hilarious as we look like a pair of lobsters. I’m so grateful that I was able to take that trip and have so many memorable experiences.

 

I Moved Out

Another highlight was that I moved out of my parents home and into a place with Kieron. I was so homesick the first few weeks and cried non stop but now I see it as a home, my home. The feeling of having my own independence is amazing! Yes, we have to pay bills now and that’s where the majority of our income goes but I wouldn’t change it for the world. It’s awesome that I get to see Kieron everyday too. 🙂

I Got A New Job

I got quite ill during 2016 and so quit my job as an IT technician. I wasn’t happy there and the stress was making me feel a thousand times worse. I was out of work for a few months whilst looking for a new job with only Kieron’s income supporting us. Money got pretty tight and not once did Kieron try and push me into getting a job. It was so supportive and let me take it all at my own pace. After a few interviews I finally got a call with a job offer which I happily accepted. I now work in retail and love it!

I Became A Mrs-To-Be

Kieron and I had been talking about engagement for a while and he said he wanted it to be a surprise. So on the 5th November he picked me up for work and when I got in the car he gave me some clothes to change into (weird, right?). He drove us back to our flat and when I got inside, it was all dark. He took me to the living room I was surprised to see our families there, sitting in the candlelight! I was saying hello to everyone and when I turned around, he was down on one knee and popped the question. It was the happiest moment of my life. I really cant wait to marry Kieron and spend the rest of my life with my best friend and soul mate.

So even though I didn’t become a millionaire I still became rich. Rich with love, happiness and memories.

I didn’t get to buy my own house either, but I was given the opportunity to rent a flat and make it a home.

After all, it’s the little things that count.

Much Love,

How Long Has it Been???

So I have been away in what feels like FOREVER! In fact I think it’s only been a few weeks haha! I wanted to share something with you all that I’m really happy about!

In my last post, I talked about my new healthy eating plan! and since then, I actually joined up to be a mentor and help others because I just fell in love with it!! I’ve lost half a stone in 2 weeks and my skin is so clear! I feel simply amazing 🙂

Here is a before and after picture of my acne. I haven’t used filters or edited either picture. It genuinely does work!

I’m so happy with my results that I want to spread that happiness to other people. That’s why I joined the CeCe Project. So, I can mentor the people who sign up with me and give them 100% support on their journeys!

I honestly couldn’t be happier that I’ve found something I love to do 🙂

This is a link to my shop. I will become the mentor to anyone who buys products from this page. I will stick with you 100% and make sure you smash your goals whether it be weight-loss, weight-gain, muscle gain or just a healthier lifestyle!

I’m Back!!

So after a week long disappearance, I’m glad to finally say I’m back! A while ago I wrote a post about going easy on yourself when you get ill and it was about that time I actually fell ill! (Stupid cold).

This cold just lingered until sometime last last week it just erupted into a full blown virus and I decided to take some time off from blogging to get myself back to myself and rest up. It still hasn’t cleared off but I feel well enough to start blogging for you all again! I want to thank you all for being patient with me!

Take care!

UPDATE: It’s Just a Break…

Hey guys! 

I know I’ve been pretty quiet recently and I’ve not published any new posts for you in about a week but the thing is, I’ve become super ill. I’ve decided that I need to put my health first as I can’t focus properly so I am taking a little break from blogging so I can get myself back up to 100%. I don’t want to post anything at the moment as I fell it would be as good due to how I’m feeling. 

I’ll use the time I’m taking off to draft up some posts and ideas and work on the, when I’m feeling better! In the meantime I will be on Twitter every now and again so feel free to chat on there! Follow me at http://www.twitter.com/beautylabs93/ 

I hope you’re all well and I’ll be back with you soon!!

Love,

Carrie

Losing Weight, Easy as 1, 2, …CAKE #4

So I’ve been off the wagon recently, more because I’ve been ill, not because I’ve been lazy. Whilst being ill I’ve wanted to eat constantly, especially carbs, my body was craving them like mad! I listened to my body and have it what it wanted but still was careful of what I ate. I also missed the gym for one week and barely went the next. After all this I decided I would face the truth and see how much I had gained (I was certain I had gained due to eating the equivalent of 50 cows and being a girl, I’m sure you all understand, Mother Nature was taking its course). When I got on the scales I was surprised to see that I had actually lost 1 pound!

So what I’m trying to say guys is if you’re ill, listen to your body. If you’re tired, rest. Missing one or a few workouts won’t ruin your progress. If you’re hungry, eat. Your body needs all the energy it can get to fight off the sickness, you won’t ruin your weightless by doing this. If your body is craving for a particular food, eat it. At the end of the day it’s not what you eat, it’s how much of it you eat. Eating good foods will always make you feel a little better in yourself, just don’t overindulge.

Don’t torture yourself because you’re desperate to lose weight. Everybody deserves a break at some point.
