Quote Explanation #1

This is a new post series I'm starting and in each post I will take a quote and explain what it means, how it has affected me or what we should about it etc.

(It also a great excuse for me to look back the screenshots hiding away in my camera roll)


This reminds as that we can do whatever we want as long as we believe in ourselves and even if our dreams our big we should let that daunt us because everything starts off small and so remember that Disney started with a mouse and now it's one of the largest companies in the world with movies, stores and theme parks.

In my life I've always had unrealistic goals, at the moment, it's that I want Johnny Ives job (senior Vice President of design at apple) and I want to be rich so that I don't have to worry about money. Yes, this is unrealistic, and will probably never happen, but we need to remember that we can do anything we set our minds to and try and achieve our dreams because who is stopping us and why show we settle for second best.

What should we do about: we should go out there and make our dreams a reality because it's a lot more possible that you think.

Thank you for reading, I hope have inspired someone, Louise x

What's in my shower

 
Sorry I haven't updated in a while but you know how it is and I've decide that during the summer
holidays I will try and upload every day so I'm currently working on writing posts for that.
 
 
 
For shampoo I've been using the L'Oreal Elvie Nutri-Gloss Shampoo and Conditioner, it works fine and is standard but I wouldn't say I have seen any major differences in my hair when using it.
 
 
Then I have my bath lily, loafer etc. that I use with shower gel.

 
This travel shower gel that I'm using up the Shea butter smells great but the formula is well.. jelly. However,  its fine by the time I put it into my bath lily.

 
Then because I'm a teenager, and acne decided it wanted to be a thing, I have a tea tree face scrub from the body shop, which I love, both the body shop and the scrub.

 
Following the body shop trend I also have a cucumber cleanser which I use on my face on the days I'm not using the scrub.

 
I then have a shower comb but I don't really use it that often. If I do, I use it while there is conditioner in my hair.
 
 
Then in my cupboard I store my spare shower gel, and the body shop shower gel that I use as bubble bath (the moringa one) because I'm not big on the whole one million bubble concept.
 
Can you see I have a body shop problem...yeah.....
