Mental health is more important than physical health

“Without a sound mind, there is no body” – Fashion and Style Police.

Mental health is something I have decided to blog. I have written many articles about mental health, depression and anxiety in the last few years. You can catch up on those posts in my lifestyle category. This topic is close to my heart because almost everyday, I hear or read about someone dealing with mental health issues. I think there is a lot more to be said about it.

Our mental health is more important than our physical health. I remember having a conversation about this with a friend sometime ago and she didn’t understand how our mind could be more important than our body but it is. Many of us take our mental health for granted. We pay attention to our physical health and everything else, but pay no mind to our mind which is the important part of us. Without a sound mind, there is no body, and many people struggle to understand that bit but it is fact. Having said that, our physical health is also very important. If we neglect to take care of our body, that could lead to many health issues that will eventually start affecting our mental health.

What is mental health?

Mental health or emotional health like some professionals like to call it, is our overall psychological well-being. It includes the way we feel about ourself, relationships and our ability to manage our feelings and deal with difficulties. Mental health plays a major role in our ability to manage our physical health, which is why I think it is more important to have a healthy state of mind because that will help you achieve a healthy physical health.

Paying attention to our physical health problems and neglecting our mental health issues will only cause more problems. Both are closely related and very important, but I believe our priority should be given to our mental health.

 

Why the comparison?

Many of us tend to ignore our mental health. It is not something we can see so for many of us, we tend to neglect it until it becomes a major issue. Which is why I am writing this post. Our mind needs to be catered to. We should remember self-care is not a luxury, it is an essential. Spending time caring for our minds should be a priority. Doing more of what makes us happy should be our target. Focusing on everyone except ourselves (hello mums) would only drain us. We need to make out time everyday for ourselves to protect our state of mind.

In conclusion

Both our mental health and physical health are important, and should not be taken for granted. I am not a Doctor, Counsellor or Therapist, but I my advice is if you continue to feed your mind, your body will remain healthy. A healthy mind leads to a healthy body. So pay special attention to your mental health.

L.O.L Surprise Pop Up Store Playset

*Affiliate link.

 

My daughter is L.O.L Surprise obsessed! She is so into the whole L.O.L brand thanks to the many YouTube unboxing videos she watches. She started off loving My Little Pony and has collected pretty much all the ponies now. We are now (very) slowly building her L.O.L Surprise Dolls collection. She has about 7 dolls at the moment and we are looking at getting some more L.O.L dolls in the next few weeks to add to it. Which is why I got this L.O.L Surprise Pop Up Store to store all her dolls nicely.

This Pop Up Store has come in very handy already. Usually, we have the dolls and the accessories all over the house. Which is why a few of the dolls and accessories are missing as I type. But thankfully, all that would be a thing of the past with this new storage playset.

This L.O.L Surprise Pop Up Store is a 3-in-1 playset, display and carrying case!

 

Display Store

It can store up to 50 dolls and accessories, which is great. It looks great in her bedroom. We love the bright pink colour and the sparkly finish. It is such a beauty. This Pop Up Store has plenty of storage for the accessories, lil sisters dolls and more. We love it!

 

Playset

This  L.O.L Surprise Pop Up Store has a couple of play areas. They include chic cafe, fashion boutique, and pizza parlour! This playset would definitely give your little one hours of fun, especially if they are into role play like my little diva.

Carrying Case

This L.O.L Surprise Pop Up Store also changes to a carrying case. This is a really handy feature because it means your little one can take a couple of her L.O.L dolls with her on holiday. I think this is one of the best features of this playset.

 

Instagold Exclusive L.O.L Doll

Another great part with the playset is the fact that it comes with an exclusive L.O.L Doll. We got Instagold which my daughter absolutely adores. It looks super good, and the accessories are super chic!

Final thoughts

Overall, we recommend this L.O.L Surprise Pop Up Store Playset. The only issue I have with it is with the bottom layer. It kind of moves easily. It would have been better if it was more sturdy. Another issue is the fact that the L.OL. Dolls that stand easily. It can be a little difficult putting them to stand upright. And the dolls can’t stand if the shoes are missing. You need the right shoes that came with the dolls to get them to stand upright.

Apart from the issues above, everything else is as it should be. It currently retails for £39.99 at most good toys stores. You can grab it here. Many call this playset pricy but I think it is just ok price wise. The L.O.L fans adore it and I can see why.

Fashion and Style Police Reviews EyeBuyDirect Glasses

I am shortsighted, so I am never without my contact lenses and glasses. I usually wear my contact lenses but on some days, I like to wear a regular pair of glasses. Which is why I was thrilled when I got the opportunity to try out EyeBuyDirect Glasses.

For those who have never heard of EyeBuyDirect, it is a one stop, online optical shop founded by Roy Hessel. He founded the company on the belief that quality eyewear should be accessible and affordable for everyone. EyeBuyDirect as the name implies, ensures your glasses are affordable and accessible by cutting out the middle men. The pairs of glasses go straight to their customers from the factory, which means the savings is passed on to the customers.

 

I started off with a lovely demo box including some product samples from some of EyeBuyDirect popular ranges.  It was a box filled with 3 frames – sunglasses, eyeglasses and digital protection lenses. There was also an eye mask included, which is so thoughtful. I love using that.

I knew I had to try the frames and lenses for myself once I tried the demo box. And I am glad I did.

I found the whole process of ordering on the website very easy.  The website is customer friendly and so easy to navigate. It was such a straight forward process. Once I decided on the frames I wanted, all I needed to do was put in my prescription and select the type of lens I wanted.

Here are the frames I got –

I adore the design of this stunning frame. The subtle lines of this premium Sequence medium-sized frame will enhance all of my features. I also like the stud accents on the hinges and front. I think it is an edgy cool frame and I am super in love with it.

For the lenses, I went for a Polarized – Brown 60% as I wanted it to work as a sunshade as well for sunny days. In the summer months, if I am unable to wear my contact lenses for whatever reason, I usually end up squirting in my regular glasses, which is a pain. I am glad all that is now in the past with this stunning pair.

EyeBuyDirect Aura Clear Jade Eyeglasses For Women

This stunning Aura Clear Jade Eyeglasses For Women is definitely one of my favourites pairs. I love the marine blue colour. The wayfarer shape is a beauty, and so are the double stud accents at the frame corners and temples.

This is definitely a premium/top quality frame. I opted for Color: Transitions® Adaptive – Gray lenses. These are photochromic lenses, which means the shade of lenses are clear indoors and darken automatically outdoors. This is my first time trying this type of lenses and I am loving it so far. It is just what I need in my prescription glasses collection.

I also had the opportunity to get 2 extra frames for some family members, and they are loving too. Both frames are of great quality and they look very stylish. They also come with photochromic transition lenses. Here they frames are –

The whole process of finding the perfect pair of frames to match your face and lifestyle can be pretty daunting. Which is why EyeBuyDirect has loads of frame and lenses options available. They also offer 14-Day Fit & Style Guarantee, which gives you enough time to ensure you are happy with your new frame.

 

What do you think of these frames? Have you shopped EyeBuyDirect glasses?
