Getting Used To My New Normal: Chronic Pain & Things I've Found That Help Ease The Pain *

*this post is in collaboration with Physio Comes To You

So as you probably know if you often read my blog and/or follow me on my social media. This year has been pretty tough for me and my family, thanks to my health not being so great. To cut a long story short I've been diagnosed with chronic back and pelvic pain (possible endometriosis) which basically means I'm in some sort of pain every single day and it really affects my day-to-day life. It's definitely been hard trying to adjust to my "new normal" and understanding when my body needs the extra rest and when it's okay to push myself to do more. Overdoing it can literally put me to bed for days but thankfully I have found some things which help to ease the pain a little, I'm never completely pain free but these methods have helped so I thought I'd share them and hope that the tips and tricks below help out any other fellow chronic pain sufferers who read my blog.

Christmas Gift Guide - Main Gift & Stocking Filler Ideas

I would say that this gift guide is more of a "For Her" gift guide because I just find buying gifts for men so awkward most of the time. I tend to just go down the gift set, socks, chocolate and/or alcohol route and that tends to work. Although there are a few gifts featured which are aimed at men and also a few unisex kind of gifts too!

Taking Time Out and Having a Cosy Self-Care Evening *

*This is a collaborative post
I know people throw the word "self-care" around for basically anything and everything nowadays but I really do think I've nailed my perfect cosy self care evening and what I feel works best for me when I'm having a bit of a rubbish day/week and just want to take some time out and get away from everything and just have some "me time". It's no secret, this year has been a tough one for me - I'll even go as far as saying it's literally been the worst year ever. Yep. So I've been having a lot of self care evenings to try and make me feel better and take my mind off everything, even though it's hard when my body apparently hates me and wants me to be in pain pretty much 24/7 - yay

What I've Been Reading, Watching and Listening To Lately

I find these type of posts so awkward to start off, I don't know why. Anyway I'm back again with an update of what I've been reading, watching and listening to lately. There's definitely been a lot of good TV shows I've watched lately, as well as a few films, so I think that section is going to be pretty long. Let me know what you've been reading, watching and listening to lately in the comments as I'm always on the lookout for recommendations.

A Beauty Gift Guide *

Even though I have a gift guide coming up with some main gifts and stocking filler ideas which includes some beauty products, I thought I would do a beauty focused gift guide as well, just because beauty is kind of my main focus on my blog and I know a lot of people come to my blog to read the beauty content. So here are some beauty gift ideas ranging from affordable to more of a luxury price tag.
