Motivation Monday 10

Last week was a total write off. You may have seen on my social media that my Mum got ill and has been in the hospital since last Monday. Annoyingly she’s not got much better and all the tests they promise to do aren’t being done. This being said she seems a little better now and I need to try and get back to some amount of normalcy. Below are a few laid-back goals for the week to try and ease me into life again.

I have got the week off work this week so I am hoping to get a lot done. I want to make sure that I make a list of everything I need to do in May and before moving in so hopefully the majority of the organisational stuff can happen this week!
Keep reading to find out the plan.

19 Things I Want To Achieve Before The New Year


So originally I was going to do a 25 before 25 post but I’ve got less than 4 months until my birthday so that seems a little crazy. I liked the idea so I’m going to do a 19 before 2019 post instead. Keep reading if you want a look at my plans for the rest of the year! Continue reading “19 By 2019”

February Goals 2018

I am fully aware that I was supposed to post my goals at the start of this year but the time got away from me. I like the review/goal post format so will start that again next month. Below are my goals for February. 🙂

Overtime

I am in a fortunate position where overtime, where I work, is pretty much always available. We get paid more for overtime as well so when I can do it I would really like to. I normally end up getting to work about 40 minutes early so I can do 30 minutes in the morning every morning as long as there are no transport issues.

I’d really like to do 12 hours overtime this month which gives me 30 minutes a day plus 2 hours. I’m going to try my hardest to fit this in! 🙂

Water

This has literally been a goal/ habit I want to form for the last year or so. I am awful at drinking water or anything other than fizzy drinks if I’m being entirely honest. I just never really feel thirsty.

I have an app on my phone to remind me to drink water so that’s a decent start. I have also bought myself a Brita water jug and have been keeping that in the fridge as I really can’t stand room temperature water.

My boyfriend and coworkers also know I need be drinking more water so are quietly suggesting so and asking what I’ve drunk so far, offered to fill up my bottle etc. They’re all really sweet so it’s good to have caring people like this on my side.

Gym

I know this is the same as the majority of the population making goals right now. There was a point last year where I was loving going to the gym and how I felt when I got back so I really want to get there again. I spend a lot of time with my boyfriend and at the cinema so want to try and balance that with going to the gym as well to try and shift some weight.

The plan is to go at least twice a week, to begin with, and then try and increase either the length of time or frequency from there. I will be checking in with this one and using some adorable planner stickers to remind me in my diary when I want to go!

Tarot

I got some tarot cards just after Christmas (totally inspired by Kalyn Nicholson) and have been doing a few readings. You may have seen on my Instagram (link) that I won £15 on a scratchcard after reading my cards were fortunate. It’s all pretty awesome.

I want to continue to learn all I can about tarot cards and readings. I also want to try writing down how my day went at the end of the day and then reading my cards to see if they match. I want to keep a tarot card diary; so is that something you want to see?

Wishlist September/October 2017

wishlist

So this month is turning out to be a rather expensive one so in a bid to save my finances I’m trying to spend less. That doesn’t mean, however, that I haven’t been window shopping like it’s my job… These are a few things I really want but can’t justify buying just yet.

Rimmel London Sculpting Palette by Kate Moss

108805-1

This is such a random thing to have on my wishlist but it’s something I keep hearing about and vaguely remember wanting to try out. Like a lot of these products, i’m going to do a bit more research first and try and get the best price for it. I’m very new to the whole contouring and highlighting scene; so I think buying a drugstore option is a better idea, to begin with so I can see if I like it enough to invest more.

 

Sweet Like Candy by Ariana Grande.

81muBaQgzQL._SX425_

This perfume is so sweet and delicious and amazing. I have a real sweet tooth that extends to my perfumes so I like sickly sweet and fruity scents so this is perfect. I tested it again yesterday on my wrist and 13 hours later it still smelled as strong as when I first applied it! I’m definitely looking to get this when I get paid next week.

 

Benefit Hoola Bronzer

s513234-main-hero

Recently I’ve been thinking more about what I am actually spending my money on and the every increasing makeup collection I seem to be amassing. I really don’t wear makeup very often yet I have like 30 mascaras. 30! So bearing this in mind I have decided to spend more money on luxury items that i know I will be able to use for a long time and won’t throw away after 3 weeks because i hate it.

My sister was kind enough to lend me the miniature Hoola bronzer she got in her benefit calendar and I’ve used it a couple of times and I love it. I’m trying hard to get out of the “but it’s so expensive” mentality as buying 5 drugstore dupes that are awful is just as expensive if not more so. I’m still going to see if I can find it anywhere with money off though. If anyone has a code or knows of a sale then hit me up!

 

Nyx Professional Pore Filler

800897809898_porefiller_main

I am fortunate in that I used to suffer really badly with blemishes and breakouts and now I’m older it isn’t really an issue anymore. My new problem though is that my pores are like craters. Seriously. So I’m looking for any and everything I can use that will either reduce the size of my pores (is that even possible?) or minimize the appearance of them.

I’m not gonna lie, I literally searched “pores” in boots website and the Nyx Professional Pore Filler came up and had a lot of good reviews. I’m going to do a bit more research on it but am pretty sure I’ll be getting this next payday!

 

Benefit Roller Lash

2285068

Ah, the roller lash. I have a love-hate relationship with this product. As I’ve said before I have about 30 mascaras and this is the only one, really, that I remember that I really like. (I have just purchased the Essence Lash Princess and the internet is going crazy for it so I might not need another mascara.. Fingers crossed eh?) I have noticed that Boots do a mini version of it with their other Benefit minis so I might get the roller lash, Hoola bronzer and something else for £25.

Have you tried any of the products I’ve mentioned? If so what were they like?

KB Chaos is born!

KB Chaos. 

You’re right. I’m not entirely sure why I went with this name. I’m also not sure why I went with an asymmetrical logo but I think it’s pretty cool. 

This is just a quick post to say hello. I was using the KBBlog and then the domain got too expensive and expired. Therefore I took that as a sign from the universe that things need to change!

The plan is to post about planning, organisation, general lifestyle and music as well. Maybe some games thrown in for good measure as well.

I’m Kayleigh or KB :), I’m 23 and currently working full time as a customer rep at a large company. I enjoy video games, singing, playing the guitar, reading and binge watching Netflix.
