Life lately, headaches and health

Things are very 50/50 at the moment, I've been neglecting posts and slacking on my exercise. I've not been feeling well and basically had a constant headache for a week now. On the upside I've been able to spend the week at my boyfriends house and he's been looking after me.

(Picture from google)

I've had this headache now for 9 days on and off. I went to the doctors twice about it because having a headache that long is exhausting, its so draining, mentally and physically. The doctor said it is a tension headache and they can last for months! I was like WAHHHH! He gave me some pills to help and said I should take paracetamol as well, which I shall. He also said I need to sort out my stress and try and control it, which I didn't think was a issue, but it must be, most of my stress at the moment I would say, is not having a job and just stuff at home.

So basically, i'm being all active and improved my eating habits because I want to live a healthy lifestyle and be fit. I do want to be thin as well but I want to be strong and have a good fitness level. I've started the 30 day squat challenge and i'm on about day 12 at the moment, I actually can see a change in my legs and bum, I have more shape ad definition in my bum and my legs are certainly thinner. I've re-joined the gym again which will be good for me, I have actually missed it and loved the workout, I'm gonna try to maybe give more structure this time to what i'm doing while i'm there. Exercise and headache wise i'm going to try and put yoga back into my daily routine to help with stress and obviously exercise.

I haven't done a lot of shopping recently, but I have some more beauty related posts coming soon :)!

Mid May Favourite's

So, I always forget to do my favourite's just after the month has ended so I'm doing a Mid month favourite's. I've really been loving the Botanics face mask, I've been using it about once a week because I just randomly started breaking out with spots, which makes me sad lol, I hate spots, as every girl does I imagine. But its really gave my skin a good cleanse and my skin feels amazing after, it's not even that expensive because its from boots, yay.

Also, I splurged out a bit and brought 2 butter London nail polishes, just to see what the fuss was about, I was really impressed with how quick it dried as I'm terrible at waiting for them to dry and just want to start doing stuff and ruin it, but I didn't with this, it also stays pretty well and is good quality, but I doubt I will be spending that much money on some more(colour in pic: primrose hill picnic). I've also gone back to loving my Nude lipstick from topshop, I've been wearing a lot more subtle make up lately and it goes well with the more natural look I've found.

Maybelline colour 24 tattoo is a gel cream eye shadow, it's only a small pot, but its really last me, it doesn't look like I've used any and I've had it about 3 weeks now. It last all day and doesn't feel stick on my eye lid as I thought it would. I'm very impressed. (Colour: on and on bronze). I also got a mini Benefit they're real mascara, I do really like the results it gives and its a good mascara, I'm a bit late jumping on the band wagon with this, but its really good for length. It hasn't replaced my all time favourite falsies though, but I would certainly buy it full size.
