The end of an era…

So this will be my final post on this blog as over the past few months I wasn’t really posting that much content and my blog wasn’t really receiving the attention it had in the past. Anyway thanks to all my followers, likes and comments ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š much appreciated!! In the meantime be sure to check me out on instagram @angelicaa_b

I’ll leave my content up, but in the near future I’m hoping to start my own website. I’ve had a great time on WordPress โ˜บ and hopefully I’ve motivated and inspired people as well as given you great recipe ideas as that was my main goal. 

Thank you all for reading.

Interview Tips

We all have interviews from time to time and a little help is always appreciated, so below are my top tips for smashing an interview whilst feeling great.

Be confident: I know it’s an obvious one but having confidence at an interview shows the interviewers that you are sure about yourself.

Be on time: I’ve showed up to an interview at least 20-30 minutes before my time but it’s totally fine because it gives you a chance to relax and feel more comfortable in the new environment. Remember to plan your route. 

Practice: practice, practice on your own in front of a mirror or with a friend or family member. Test yourself on a few general questions just to give yourself the chance to formulate answers.

Appearance: always dress formal and smart, make sure it’s even weather appropriate because nobody needs a long sleeved, thick polo neck in the summer time.

Study the job description: make sure you know what you’re applying for they should make the interview flow smoothly.

Ask questions: questions are always good because it shows you’re interested in the job.

Lastly, Good Luck!!

The new ‘cure’ for acne?ย 

Hello everyone ๐Ÿ˜Š I think we all, both girls and guys have experienced acne in their lives, so it’s definitely nothing to be disheartened about even if you still have experiences in your adult life (or near that time of the month ๐Ÿ˜‰).

Generally acne can be caused by a number of things but the main thing is that’s it’s an inflammatory condition. Often caused by a build up of bacteria and dead skin either under the skin or on the surface. So below I’ve listed some potential causes and even tips!! 

Wheat and Gluten: some people are gluten intolerant which can cause general inflammation in the body. It would be wise to get an allergy test if you have symptoms.

Sugar: try to get your sources from minimally unprocessed foods like raw honey, dates, raisins and fruits all within moderation*

Dairy: often considered an inflammatory food also increasing mucus production and disrupting digestion.

Omega6 fatty acids: these are easily found in modern western diets and become inflammatory if not balanced by good amounts of omega-3 fatty acids.

Alcohol: always a BIG NO NO. Very little documented health benefits.

Stress: when we stress out, our bodies produce even more cortisol* and testosterone often causing increased sebum production and breakouts.

Exercise: everyone knows that when you exercise and sweat your body releases happy chemicals. Sweating is good for the skin increasing blood flow and balancing electrolytes, warming the skin and allowing clogged pores to be released.

Hygiene: something which can always be improved. Try washing your hands more, touch your face less and use clean bathroom and bedroom items.

*for the UK the nhs (and other academic websites) state appropriate portion sizes.

*cortisol: steroid hormone

Is your anxiety getting in the way?ย 

Hello everyone, I’m sure we all deal with anxiety from time to time depending on the occasion or situation we all experience times in life when we feel nervous or experience self doubt. 

When you begin to experience anxious feelings or thoughts find a safe, comfortable place to sit, close your eyes and focus solely on your breathing. 

Your breathing should be deep and slow, in through the nostrils….. out through the mouth.

Self Confidenceย 

It’s been a short while โ˜บ but I’m back!! 

Self confidence is something that develops over time and it may appear quicker in some than others. But don’t worry we’ll all reach a stage in our life when we feel completely confident in ourselves and we just accept (not settle) our bodies, personality, life etc… 

Everyone experiences days where we second guess ourselves and feel as though we are not able to complete a task but it’s the struggles in life that lead us to the fantastic person we become. Everyone’s path is different so never compare yourself โ™ฅ 

Here are some few tips to instantly help you feel more confident:

1. Focus on yourself 

2. Don’t worry about embarrassment or failure 

3. Step out of your comfort zone (no matter how scared you are)

4. Always forgive yourself, don’t put yourself down about bad/negative mistakes forgive yourself and move on 

5. Believe that you are the best

Lastly follow your dreams and never give up x
