Did you know, if you think you’re pregnant, even when you’re not, your body starts to show pregnancy symptoms? It’s a similar reason for why during pre-drinks, when you probably really aren’t that drunk, you start to believe you’re drunker than you are. The mind really is insanely powerful. A few years ago, I went through a period where I was really fascinated in watching all of Derren Brown’s specials. Recently, I introduced some of these specials to my boyfriend. One of our favourites was called “The Heist” – Derren Brown managed, through mind control, to induce three professionals into believing it was acceptable to rob someone of £10,000, through various techniques such as the belief of that they were powerful and attaching this to actions and music; it really got me thinking about The Law of Attraction – which is as simple as “if you believe you can, you will.”

When it comes to shopping for clothes and accessories, they can take up the major portion of our budget.
So, when it comes to shopping for your accessories, you really need some clever ideas to save yourself from overspending…
A little while back, I was contacted by Maple Holistics and asked if I’d be up for receiving any of their products to share my thoughts on this blog. If you haven’t heard of Maple Holistics, they are a US based beauty brand that develop and manufacture their own cruelty free, all natural cosmetics. They focus mainly on shampoos and conditioners, but I have loads of those. I instead decided to go for something a bit more obscure, and a bit more necessary for my needs. Foot scrub.
There are a few things I need in my life right now. For one, I need a photographer!! It’s always a task to rope out a friend or my boyfriend to take photos for me, and my soul is desperately crying out for a steady, reliable photographer. Two, I need a new camera. I purchased my Fujifilm camera around this time last year, which was a step up from my digital camera, but I think it’s about time now I get a DSLR; the great thing is Christmas is just around the corner for me to make that happen.
I think I go through waves of obsession with blogging. There are times when I’m just too busy and occupied to even think about Skylish, and the blog builds up cobwebs for months, and there are times when it’s all that’s on my mind. Usually, I am the most obsessed in the summer, as often the only time I can give my full undivided attention to growing this platform; but this summer I was interning – I was eating, sleeping and breathing getting my job offer, and Skylish took a back seat. This year in uni I’m an editor for my student union’s newspaper, I also at some point considered running for a committee/sub-committee role on one of my university’s forums or conferences, as that’s something I haven’t done before, but I decided instead to spend my final year of uni, alongside work and the newspaper, really focussing on Skylish and seeing where it goes…
