Fair weather fun

If the weather is looking to stay fine, then you do not need to spend a lot of cash to enjoy yourself with your favourite people this summer. You could pack a picnic, and decide which item or food that each of you is going to bring and make the most of your local park or green space. While if you live near a beach, then why not get your hamper ready and head to the beach to catch some rays? Another great summer activity is inviting all your friends and family round for a barbecue in your garden. So, if you are looking to spend some quality time together why not make the most of the warm evenings to plan a fun activity and get everyone involved.

 

Test your friendships

You may love your friends, but how well do you really know them? Do you think your friends can cope well under pressure, or maybe you would like to see just how far you can push your friends.If you are visiting that part of the world, consider booking a trip to Charlotte Escape Roomwhere you will be tested with a series of puzzles and trivia to see how long it takes you before you can escape. While this might not be for everyone, it is a fun and unique activity to enjoy in a larger group.

 

Get active

Now that the sun is out, you can use the weather to your advantage and get your entire friendship group in much better shape. From playing Frisbee to going for a run or even taking your beloved dog for a walk, if you are looking to shape up and look your best for the warmer weather, then be sure to schedule in some time to socialise while you get out and about. Not only will you be able to catch up with your friends, but you will also be able to slim down and tone up at the same time.

So if you want to get outside and make the most of the summer weather, while spending time with your friends, then be sure to plan some seasonal activities where you can enjoy each other’s company. Consider visiting a panic room to test your friendships to another level. Finally, make sure that you get active and enjoy the sun to help you get into better shape while catching up with your favourite people.

5 Things you need to know before getting laser hair removal treatment

I had my last session of my laser hair removal treatment last year. There were 6 sessions in total including the patch treatment. Many people have asked me about my laser hair removal experience, and some questions have been asked a few times by different people. So I thought writing a post on 5 Things you need to know before getting laser hair removal treatment would be useful.

The laser hair removal treatment I had was on my chin. I found my chin hairs very annoying. The best option for me was to have the laser treatment, since waxing and threading were not the keeping my chin hair-free long enough. I would 100% recommend this treatment to anyone in need of it. I found it very effective. But before you go ahead, here are some things you need to know you start the treatment.

 

5 Things you need to know before getting laser hair removal treatment

Avoid the sun before your treatment

It is best to stay out of the sun before your treatment. You won’t be able to have the treatment done if the area has a sun burn. It is best to have the treatment done in the autumn/winter months if possible.

You should also avoid tanning beds, spray tans, tanning lotion and makeup on the area to be treated. I had to always wipe my chin area completely before the treatment to ensure there was no makeup on it.

 

You will need a couple of sessions

You will need a couple of sessions to achieve good results. I had 6 sessions and I know someone who had 12 sessions. The number of sessions you have depends on the area to be treated, the type of hair to be removed and many other factors.

Consistency is the way to achieve good results. So ensure you have as many treatments as needed, and at the right time too.  I went for my treatments every 4/6 weeks.

 

The pain is bearable

I found the pain bearable, but maybe I just have a good pain threshold. Many people I know complain about how uncomfortable it is and I agree. It is uncomfortable but not as painful as I imagined.

 

It is suitable on all skin types 

The laser hair removal treatment I had is suitable for all skin types. You can find out more about it being suitable for your skin type from this short YouTube video.

 

 

Do not wax or thread after treatment

You can shave, but make sure you don’t wax or thread after each treatment. Whilst having the treatment, pulling out your hair follicles through waxing and threading hinders the process.

How to Effectively Work from Home

Working from home is a great opportunity. If you have the privilege of working from home, I say grab it with 2 hands. It is good to be able to work from home or anywhere you find yourself. But it can be very tricky when it comes to finances. Working from home can also have both a positive and negative affect on your mental health.

It’s very important to set up a good space to work in that will allow you to work effectively and feel comfortable. The following tips are helpful for anyone that works from home whether you are launching your own fashion label, studying an online RN to BSN program, or are employed by a company.

Here are five tips to help you squeeze the most from working from home.

 

Setting up the work space

The first step, in setting up your office is to declutter the space.  A distraction free environment will allow you to focus on work. So set up your owkr space and get rid of any clutter or distraction. 

 

Furniture

There’s a very strong chance you’ll need a desk, even if you are working from a laptop. You will want to spread out and be able to focus on your work.  The most basic office furniture checklist comprises a desk, a supportive chair, a bright lamp, and some type of file storage system.

What you sit in is extremely important, as you’ll likely be sitting in this chair upwards of eight hours a day.  For this reason you’ll want a chair with decent ergonomic support and plenty of padding as you don’t want to be suffering with a bad back due to your desk and chair set-up.

 

Work when you should

It’s all too tempting for you to lose focus on your work when working from home. Especially with the many social media platforms. You have to have the discipline to work when you should, or you will spend the time doing nothing productive. 

 

Have a routine

Working from home can be both a blessing and a curse; on the one hand your commute is now limited to going from your bedroom to your home office, which has huge benefits in terms of convenience, but it can create a less focused emotional state if you’re used to a morning ritual of getting dressed in business attire (rather than sweatpants or your dressing gown) and being around colleagues in a similar state of ‘working’.  

 

The most important thing in terms of having a routine, is that it provides structure and keeps you focused – set yourself a lunch hour between a set time each day, or adopt the approach that many successful people take which is to get dressed for work, as if you were going to the office, rather than sitting around in your underwear.
