The Body Shop Lotion-To-Oil from their avocado range is a bit of an odd one because it has the consistency of a moisturiser, even after you have applied it but later on, it does feel like you have layered up with a light moisturiser and a body oil.
Over the summer me and the Bloke have used this on incredibly dry skin, as an After-sun replacement, I’ve used it on my face (having a fan on all night is way harsh) and even on my hair as a leave-in conditioner!
It has such a lovely, fresh scent and isn’t greasy at all.
The Build Your Own bowl for a tenner, from The Green Lab in Manchesters’ Northern Quarter is the tastiest and most filling bowl of vegetarian salad/meze/tapas I have ever bought. It was two layers deep, and it was a big bowl!
This post is basically a little pat on the back to myself and a lesson in believing in my ABILITIES, rather than focusing on my disabilities.
1) I always wanted a laptop with skateboard/band/creepy cute stickers on.
Being Dyspraxic (so having little spacial-awareness and very sporadic coordination) I always assumed I’d arse it up. That really wasn’t an option as my MacBook was a very generous present from the person I loved so I didn’t want it to look shite.
Considering this project has evolved over eight years, I think I’ve done an amazing job and it looks cool, rather crowded or having random gaps etc.
2) I’ve also created and managed a successful green/alternative lifestyle blog for this amount of time too. I’ve stopped doing reviews of gifted items and attending press events due to my health probs BUT it still gets a lot of views, likes and some comments, meaning I’m still coming up with engaging content. I’m also writing in my own unique (slightly bonkers) voice, which I think has helped the longevity of this blog too.
I never would I have thought that I’d be able to keep ANYTHINg going for that long, and of any consistent quality, because of ADHD and Dyspraxia (not even counting the chronic fatigue from having Dyspraxia and Hypermobilty Syndrome) and yet, I have.
Yay me! 💃🏽
Just shows you that giving things a go might actually work out, and if not, well at least you know now, rather than always wondering.
