Health & Fitness: A New Chapter

The quote "your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change" really struck a chord with me a few weeks ago flicking through The Happiness Planner 2017. This year, resolutions mean nothing to me, I am a much greater believer of setting goals for 2017 as a form of self development and working hard to realise them. Change is the only way we can grow, learn more about ourselves and realise our full potential. Moving back to college for my final semester of the Bachelor of Education programme this past week has inspired me to change elements of my lifestyle that need to be worked on. Read on to discover the changes made to my exercise regime and organisational routine this week. Hopefully it will give you the motivation you need to work on your own goals and remember darlings it is never too late to start setting new targets and dreaming new dreams!

Lusty Beg Island Travel Diary & Vlog

"Travel, in the younger sort, is part of education, in the elder, a part of experience" - Francis Bacon. There is no section dedicated solely to travel on Grace With Love Blog, so the plan is to include any travel diaries and adventures in the "education" and "advice" sections of the blog. Travel, to me, is one of the ultimate forms of self-education enriching our life experiences and providing us with deeper understanding of the wide and varied societies and cultures around us. Lovely readers, are you on the lookout for some 2017 travel inspiration? This written and video diary will guide you through a hidden gem closer to home as last weekend taught me that it is not always necessary to look abroad to tropical destinations to find the perfect venue for your next adventure. Last Friday, my best friend Shannon and I journeyed to Lusty Beg Island, a 75 acre paradise nestled approximately twenty minutes north  from Enniskillen, Co. Fermanagh. Read on for travel tips and to discover the fantastic array of activities on offer in Lusty Beg that prove the perfect mix between relaxation and adventure.

Is Rose Hip Oil Worth The Hype?

The Claim 

Grace With Love Blog recently tested out the Certified Organic Rose Hip Oil from ULTRAPURE Laboratories in collaboration with The Irish Blogger Agency. Rose Hip Oil seems to be having a moment right now, however is the hype justified? Firstly, to explain, rose hip is a cold pressed oil full of protective fatty acids and antioxidants that are renowned for cell regeneration. It can be used on dry and sensitive skin, wrinkles, scars, acne and sun damage. The oil claims "to help the overall appearance of skin and fine lines, providing intensive care to even the most demanding skin." This sounds very promising and left me full of expectation as the ten day trial began.
