Fashion | Top 10 Vintage Clothing Finds...


Teacups_and_Buttondrops_10_Vintage_Clothing_Finds


There is something about following a crowd which I have never liked.  I dislike being the same as everyone else particularly when it comes to fashion which means I tend to shop vintage clothing pieces more often than not.

Beauty | The Body Shop Colour Crush Lipstick...



Teacups_and_Buttondrops_Colour_Crush_Lipstick



Out of all makeup products, Lipsticks are by far my favourite to purchase. I am such a sucker for a classic red. Do I need another Red? No. Do I buy another Red even though I have another one like it? Absolutely.

Life | Importance of self-care...

Teacups_and_Buttondrops_Importance_of_self_Care


It is all too easy nowadays to be too busy: too busy to make that gym class; too busy trying to manage a side hustle while working full-time or too busy to even find time to do nothing.

I am one of those people (there I've actually said it). I don't know how to do nothing. I am always on the go trying to balance work, gym, blog and a social life. Honestly, it's like playing a game of Buckaroo 90% of the time. I don't know how to switch off.

Earlier this year, I got to a point where I had to do something different so I started to take time for myself without the guilt. And you know what? It has paid dividends as now I'm less stressed, much happier and really enjoying life.

So what ways can you practice self-care?

001) Read a book:

I used to love reading when I was younger and for some reason, I can't quite work out why I                stopped doing it so much as I love it.

002) Listen to a podcast:

Podcasts are probably one of my favourite finds. I love a good podcast and there is nothing like          switching one on and letting the world drift on by.

003) Go for a walk:

Getting some fresh air is one of the best ways that you can take a little time for yourself. Even            better: listen to a podcast.

004) Make time for that gym class:

Exercise has so many benefits. So why not try that combat class you have been putting off for              months because you simply don't have time? (Spoiler: you'll probably actually enjoy it)

005) Have a pamper session:

Nothing screams self-care more than a pamper session. I just love spending time on myself                  painting my nails, applying a face mask and generally pretending I'm somewhere far away.                  If you want to go one step further, book yourself in somewhere for a bit of pampering.

006) Watch Tv:

No laptops, no Social Media. Nada. Just you and the TV (and maybe a hot drink)

007) Bake:

I love baking for pleasure. The only problem is I only do it if I have people to give the baking            to. Otherwise, I eat the entire thing (oops!)

008) Bring out your creative side:

Whether that is drawing, photography, knitting or cross-stitching, indulging in these habits is              good for the soul. I'm naturally a creative person so hobbies like this are completely up my                  street.
