How To Have A Spring Clean

How To Have A Spring Clean
You know that saying "tidy house, tidy mind", this quote is so true and is perfect for this time of year. I don't know about anybody else but, I don't feel as though I've totally got out of that winter slump unless I've had a spring clean. Over the past month I have thoroughly declutter-ed, reorganized and spring cleaned my entire bedroom, as well as my mum's. I found this so therapeutic and it really got me ready for the change in seasons. I've put together a little checklist on things you should consider to do in order to have a tidier mind.

1. Sell clothes you've not worn in over 6 months on Depop
2. Chuck out odd, holey socks
3. Fold away winter clothes and get your spring gear out
4. Throw odd earrings, broken pieces of jewellery
5. Pop some tulips or daffodils out
6. Fresh, clean bedding (ditch the mermaid blankets!)
7. Toss old receipts, bills, etc
8. Give unwanted DVDS, CDs or books to charity
9. Throw away expired beauty products (trust me this was hard for me!)
10. Toss pens low on ink
11. Reorganize your bookshelf, minimalism is key!
12. Take down any negative vibes (old photos, work)
13. Magazines you don't use can be used as deco
14. Wrapping paper scraps
15. Delete junk mail, screenshots, work - anything that doesn't need stored
16. Simplify your desk space
17. Pop motivational quotes, happy memories on your wall
18. Reorganize your skincare cabinet
19. Remove unused apps
20. Have a new look (hair dye, new makeup, new outfit) 

I have been trying to have a minimalist lifestyle lately and removing any toxic or unnecessary things in my life in order to move forward. Doing some of the above things has really made an impact and I definitely feel ready for spring!

What do you do to have a Spring Clean??

Look Incredible Beauty Box

Look Incredible Beauty Box
Whoever the culprit was who created the idea of receiving a monthly subscription box filled with surprises deserves a round of applause. Whenever I receive one of these fabulous subscription boxes it is like Santa Claus has arrived early, or late in this case. 

Look Incredible are a online retailer that stock a huge range of well-known beauty brands, including Too Faced, Urban Decay and even Anastasia Beverly Hills. They also offer a monthly beauty subscription box - now I know you are all probably rolling your eyes thinking another beauty box? What makes this one different to the rest? Well, let me tell you. Look Fantastic believe in value for money which means every month you receive 5 iconic full-sized beauty products to last you through the whole month. And if that wasn't exciting enough they are selling a standard edition box for £18.99 a month

Bareminerals 5-in-1 BB Advanced Eyeshadows & Primer - £18
Believe it or not I have never actually tried anything from Bareminerals before, so I was excited to try this out. This advanced BB cream for eyeshadow contains SPF 15 and can be used as an eyelid primer, brightener and a eyeshadow. It can also work as a concealer to disguise any blemishes on the eyelid. I personally love the sound of this and since I just ran out of my Too Faced Eye Primer I am definitely going to use this to prime my eyeshadows.

Rosie For Autograph Dream Big Lashes - £15
I have actually got a couple of bits from Rosie's range so I will do an in depth review on my thoughts sometime soon. The packaging on this mascara is stunning, however, I am not entirely convinced on the 'big lashes' as the wand doesn't look effective. I am willing to try it out though!

Bee Good Honey & Cameilina Facial Exfoliator - £10.50
I try to exfoliate my face at least once a week to remove all those gross dead skin cells, so this will definitely make an appearance in my skincare routine. This exfoliator can be used on all skin types and contains propolis to help balance problematic skin. It also contains wheatgerm oil to soothe and moisturizes dry skin. This product offers so much and I can't wait to see what it does to my skin, I may use this on a day my skin is lacking moisture.

Bareminerals Daily Recovery Concentrate - £19.99
Visibly improves skin elasticity with this deeply hydrating treatment. Powered by proprietary Activesoil complex plus White Lily Extract, this effective formula helps replenish and retain moisture, leaving the skin instantly supple while increasing its resilience over time. Not entirely sure what that means exactly, but I do love face mists, they are so easy to use and effective.

Too Faced Flatbuki Brush - £12
Too Faced is my favourite makeup brand so I was so excited to see a brush from their collection in this box. Too Faced cruelty-free Teddy Bear Hair is an exclusive, super soft and luxurious fibre that grabs and blends pigments. I can't wait to put this brush to the test I think it will be amazing for blusher and bronzers.

Overall, I think this beauty box is well worth the price and I think it definitely stands out from the rest of the beauty subscription boxes I have trialed over the years. I personally love that you receive 5 full-sized products every month from such iconic brands. Definitely check it out!
