Health, Fitness & Skincare Journey

One of my new year resolutions was to take my fitness and general health very seriously. Last year, I saw the consequences of not being fit, and I never want to experience any of that again. The body pains and the extra weight were not my cup of tea, so I rather be fit and healthy!

One of the issues with working from home is that it is so easy to be on your laptop, on the sofa all day, which is horrible for the body as you can imagine.

These days, I have been going on daily walks/runs; I easily go pass the 10,000 recommended daily step and I am loving it. I feel better, I look better and I am happier. I guess being fit has a way of doing that to you, plus the amazing scenery at the moment is priceless.

 

 

 

Apart from having a balanced diet, I have also been taking vitamins supplements, and trying to get as much beauty sleep as possible. I am currently taking Vitabiotics WellWoman Vitamins Supplement and Natures Aid Chewable Vitamin C, and I think they are both doing the job, I just need to remember to take them everyday.

 

 

So health and fitness aside, being in my 30s also means I need to step up my skincare routine, and start experimenting with various anti-aging skincare products, which is what I am doing at the moment. I have a few anti-aging products I am testing out and I will be reviewing soon, so keep your eyes open.

The way I see it, health, fitness and skincare are always going to be a journey, and not a destination, because they never end.

How is your health, fitness and skincare routine? Any major changes this year? Do sound off in the comments section below, and please remember to share. Thank you.

I Like to Wig

I have always wondered what the issue was with people and wigs. There seems to be this idealogy that wigs are meant for only those who are suffering from a hair loss, and elderly people, and should not be a beauty item, but I strongly disagree.

Growing up, I was never a fan of wigs. They all looked similar and looked like WIGS, and I found them very unattractive. But nowadays, with the new generation wigs, I have fallen madly in love with them, and I have been a devout wearer for many years now. I have a lovely lady who makes majority of my wigs, and she is the real deal. I also got a few from some fabulous retailers.

The last time I had a weave (hair extensions attached to my hair) on was January 2016, and I have not missed them. Since I gave up using chemicals on my hair and having weaves installed, my hair has been in the best shape ever. It is healthy and growing like weed!

I gave up on wearing weaves because I needed my natural hair to breath, it was badly damaged and the only way I could give my hair the attention it was badly in need of, was to not have hair extensions attached to it.

The joy of wearing wigs is the ability to yank it off whenever I need to, or not to have it on if I don’t need/want to; it is also one of the best feelings in the world to sleep weave/wig free. For someone who has a very itchy scalp (anyone who knows me well enough can testify to this, and no, I don’t have dandruff or head lice, just a natural itchy scalp for whatever reason), wearing a wig means I don’t have to deal with the itch half as much as I used to when I had weaves on.

Wearing wigs also means I can change my look as often as I like. I have a few wigs in my collection, and I am looking to getting a few more in other styles this year.

Many people struggle to understand why any woman with good hair on her head would want to wear wigs instead. I see it in a different way. Wigs give me the opportunity to switch up my look, from the comfort of my home, whenever I feel like it. Wigs allow me sleep free and be free. Wigs allow me take care of my natural hair (this is a big one for me) the way it needs me to. And once my natural hair gets to the length I want it to, I can see myself wearing less of wigs, but for now, I am loving them.
