The Best Hand Food

£2.50 (50 ml)

Soap & Glory are by far my favourite bath and body brand. I am always out to try more of their range and have accumulated quite a list of products I would like to try. Last weekend, whilst on my lunch break, I decided to pop into Boots as I was on the hunt for a new hand cream to pop into my handbag. I asked the ladies behind the counter which hand cream they would recommend and all of them said the S&G hand food, so I thought I would give it a try.

Hand food contains Shea butter and Macadamia oil; the smell is amazing but I do find that it can be a bit overpowering after a while. The texture is nice and thick without being too sticky, making it easier rub in and no residue is left on your hands after use. The Shea butter and Macadamia oil are completely absorbed into your skin leaving it feeling moisturised, perfect for those of you with dry skin.

Overall, it is a great product and I love how moisturising it is. However, I would not repurchase it as the scent is a little bit too overpowering for me but if you are a fan of the Lush snow fairy scent then Hand food is for you. 

What is your favourite hand cream?

My Final Year

Tomorrow I will be entering my final year of High school, Year 11. I study German, Geography and Physical Education and in a matter of months, I will be taking my final exams before heading off to Sixth Form. I am quite nervous for the exams but I know if I put in the work then I will get my desired results. High school has been a strenuous five years and I am more than excited to be leaving. 


Keep Organised 
Make sure to hand every piece of work in on time and complete work the night it is set, so that you can have a stress free year and more spare time on weekends. Get a planner so that you can write down all of your exams dates, when you have to study, and when you have homework due. Time management is essential. If you're given an assignment that's due next week, don't procrastinate, get started within a few days of receiving it. The more time you have, the less you will be stressed.

Study. Study. Study 
Try to study in 20-50 minute intervals, taking five or ten minutes in between for a break. Breaking your studying into shorter periods of time will make it less of a chore also give yourself time to absorb the material before moving on. Make sure work is done before socialising, studying is a crucial part of learning, so do the work before heading out to have fun.

Be Optimistic
Being optimistic is always good. Seeing only the negative aspects of any situation can cause you to miss opportunities and neglect problems that need to be solved. Look for the light at the end of the tunnel and start seeing the glass as half full instead of half empty. 

Good luck to everyone starting high school, college or university!
