Fashion Finds~ Primark Nails

So I was having a little wander around Primark to check out there new summer bits and to pick up some basics and I stumbled across a stand covered with nails. I wasn't too sure on trying these at first as I had never bought anything like this from primark before but boy was I suprised when I tried these out so I had to do a post on these little gems. 

First of all can I just say that the range of different styles, pattrens, colours and effects is crazy huge which is pretty amazing but makes it so hard to choose. I went for three different effects as I wanted to try a few different types so I went for the 'Soft Smoke' nails from the matte range, 'Galactic' from the Chrome colllection and 'Poison' from the basic range. 

I have now tried all of these nails and they are amazing they last on your nails really well, are super easy to file down and shape if the length isn't for you and they look amazing. Also can I just say the price is ridiculous like these nails were ONE TO TWO POUNDS!!! I honestly would totally recommend these nails to anyone they are so worth the money even if you just wear them for a weekend. So I'll end this post with a few photos.

Gym Chat - What Keeps Me Motivated?

When 2017 came along I decided that this will be the year I will kick myself in the butt and make a real effort to improve my fitness and health and actually stick to it this year (Hopefully) Therefore I decided to hit up my local gym and I’m proud to say I'm still hitting the gym three times a week and actually enjoying it (Well Sometimes). I’ve developed a kind of love hate relationship with the gym however I’m working on staying motivated and learning to love working out again. So I thought I'd do a little post on what keeps me going when it comes to the gym. 

1) Plan Those Workouts 

So first things first and this is probably one of the most important things for me personally is to plan your work out before you get to the gym. This may sound simple but there’s nothing worse than getting to the gym and having no idea what you’re going to do as you will end up wandering the gym contemplating what you could do when you should be smashing your workout already. So I usually just write up a quick list in the notes on my phone on what I want to do on each of my gym days. This helps me know what I need to do when I get to the gym and this way I know I’m making the most of my time in the gym which is going to get me the best results in the long run. It's also super important to mix it up a bit and make sure you’re not doing the same routine all the time as this can lead to you getting bored plus trying out new routines and exercises can be fun and is something to look forward too when you get to the gym. So overall pre-planning your workouts is going to help you get the best results and also keep you super pumped for the gym.

2) New Gym Clothes! 

Right guys I know that this one sounds super materialistic but getting some new gym clothes is a really good motivator to get you in that gym. If you have new clothes that you feel hella good in then your simply going to want to wear them now as there gym clothes the best place to wear them is the gym meaning that you’re going to want to be in the gym more using your shiny new active wear.  I appreciate that not everyone will have the money to just buy a new outfit every time they need a little motivation and I’m not saying I recommend this as a consistent fix but there’s nothing wrong with treating yourself to some new active wear to boost your spirit every now and again that’s all.  

3) Buddy Up!

This is 100% what motivates me to get my butt to the gym the most; I can’t recommend getting a gym buddy enough. There are sooo many positives from gymming with your friend such as not only are you getting a catch up but your also smashing your fitness goals at the same time and also having a friend at the gym to workout with is also amazing for partner workouts which you can do together but also you can motivate each other to keep going and push yourselves. If all this wasn’t enough I feel having someone to go to the gym with also motivates me to go as I feel as though I’m letting someone down If I don’t go as if it was just me I guarantee I wouldn’t be going as frequently as I am now but I hate the thought of letting someone down so it keeps me going to the gym and not making excuses for myself as to why I can’t go.

4) Track your Progress.

Another way I keep myself wanting to workout is by tracking my progress, now by this I don’t mean simply jumping on the scale and writing down a number as honestly since I’ve joined the gym my weight has been all over the place as you will put on weight, lose weight and everyone’s body deals with this differently. So the way I track my progress is by taking a progress picture every month and compare them as the months go on. Honestly I think this is the best way to see your progress as this way it’s more than just a number and there’s so much more to take in to account. You can see which parts of your body you are less confidant with and watch them to see the change and it’s just a healthier way of tracking your progress without beating yourself up over a number on a scale.

5) Reward Yo'self!

Finally it is so important to reward yourself, if you’ve been hitting up the gym all week and working hella hard then of course you deserve a treat. Now this can be anything from food clothes, makeup or just whatever you love. I tend to mix it up a bit and if I feel as though I’ve worked extra hard I will treat myself to a cheat meal or a new pair of gym leggings. All I would say is if you favoring the food treats just remember that moderation is key as long as you keep your diet as balanced as possible there shouldn’t really be too many restrictions as this is just going to bring you down if anything instead of bringing you up. So in this case just make sure you balance out your food intake and you should be all good!

I think thats everything so I hope this post helped if your struggling with motivation and I know I will look back at this when I hit a bit of a go slow with my workouts.

Good Thing's Skincare Review

Good Things Skincare- The Brand

I discovered this brand whilst I was strolling around Boots looking for some new skin care and these little guys caught my eye. Firstly can I just say how lovely the packaging for these products are because I mean look at it its so pretty. However, I can't believe how affordable this brand is considering the amazing quality of the products it honestly blows my mind. 

Good Things skincare was created by Alice Hart-Davis who is a lovely lady who is all about promoting self confidence in young girls, she is a beauty journalist who has written two teen beauty books. The Brand itself is all about looking after your skin from a younger age to help fight all the backlash of bad skin after years of neglect when your older. The products are also super affordable especially for the amount of product you get. Finally the thing I love the most about this brand is that all the products use completely natural ingredients, no animal products are used and all of the products are cruelty free. I absolutely love when a brand is cruelty free and therefore I was delighted to find out that this brand doesn't test on animals or use any animal products.

Good Things Skincare - The Products

So the products I tried we all from the Superfruits range which is designed to keep your skin clear and fresh, It also includes various superfruit ingredients which all have amazing benefits to your skin. The products I tried included the Miracle Mattifier Moisturiser, the Deep Pore Anti-Blemish Lotion and the Five Minute Facial Mask.

Good Things Deep Pore Anti-Blemish Lotion

So this is the Good Things Deep Pore Anti-Blemish Lotion and can I just say its basically heaven in a bottle. This is by far my favourite product I have tried from the range. The Brand Claims that this Lotion acts as both a toner and a cleanser which is made to help those with skin prone to breakouts and oiliness. I totally agree with these claims as I have some crazy combination skin where I get super dry in spots but places like my nose get oily as hell so this has managed to help with the oiliness without drying out the rest of my skin. It includes the superfruit extracts from wild strawberries which helps keep skin looking radiant and healthy, willow bark and liquorice which help to destroy any nasty bacteria. I love this product and it has made it in to my everyday skincare routine. My skin just feels generally clean fresh and smooth after using this product and I love it! I apply this in a morning before my makeup and at night I use it to remove my makeup which it also does a hella good job at as it makes the process of removing my makeup so much easier. Overall I would totally recommend this product especially for the price.

Price: £4.99

Good Things Miracle Mattifier Moisturiser

This one is the Good Things Miracle Mattifier Moisturiser which is designed for oily skin it claims to hydrate oily skin whilst keeping the oil levels under control. The superfruit extract in this on is blackcurrant extract which helps to absorb excess oil, keeping skin smooth and less likely to endure those angry breakouts. I would recommend this one if you have oily skin as it is super fast absorbing and has reduced the oil in parts of my skin such as my nose so much which is amazing for under my makeup as it makes it last so much longer on, however because my skin is dry in parts this isn't the best for those parts of my skin so I tend to just use this on the parts of my skin that get super oily but once again if you have oily skin I would definitely recommend. 

Price- £7.99 

Good Things Five Minute Facial Mask

This is another product I have fallen in love with from the Good Things brand as it is just so quick and easy and the results are fab. This mask claims to make skin clearer, brighter and smoother. It includes the superfruit extracts of green clay to draw out all the dirt and impurities from your pores, avocado oil to smooth and moisturise the skin, goji berry to soothe the skin and finally willow bark for a radiant glow. I think this face mask does its job very well it has helped tone down my breakouts and leaves my skin feeling as fresh as a daisy afterwards. The price is also super reasonable considering it is a face mask that actually works. Overall I would recommend this product to everyone as I feel like it has properties that everyone could benefit from but also it is amazing if you don't always have the time to pamper yourself as it does all these amazing jobs in just five minutes! 
Price- £5.99

Overall I love the Good Things brand and I am very happy with the products I have tried and will definitely be trying more. One of the main things that I noticed was that all of the products smelled amazing which is probably due to all the amazing ingredients and superfruit extracts in them. I also love that everything seemed to do what the brand claimed they should have done which is great as I now have trust within the brand when buying more products from them. I would 100% recommend the Good Things products and I will be purchasing more very soon.

Quick Hello!

Hey, I’ve only gone and done it after about a year of procrastination I’ve finally decided to throw myself into the world of blogging. I had a blog quite a while ago when I was still at school and I absolutely loved it but I found that with all the stress of exams and working all my spare time a way as a waitress at a restaurant I couldn’t really put as much time and thought into my blog as I would have liked, Therefore I found the best option to take a little break from blogging for a while. However, I am now free from the education system and I am currently working full time (Not really much better...) but I have never been more determined to get blogging again.

So lets skip to the basics...

Well my names Beth and I’ve made Life With Bee simply to share my life, my experiences and the things I love with the world, I am twenty this year (Omg I will officially be an adult and have to do grown up things!), Speaking of which I would love to have something to look back on in the future so I figured blogging about my life and the things I love would be a great place to start. So if you have stumbled across my blog then Hey! I hope you enjoy my posts as much as I love writing them.
