Ever really wanted a face primer to keep your make-up on but found all them designer brands out there are way too expensive. Well from some research of the past couple of weeks and trying it out for myself it has come to my attention that this £4-£5 solution of Nivea post shave balm (depending where you shop) is a miracle. And even better a little goes a long way! 
Put a dab on the back your hand and massaging it into your face pre make-up routine and your make up will stay in place and on for a lot longer, it's great for a night out and stop you having to try and squeeze so many products in your clutch on a night out.

I started off basic, with a bathroom towel and a Youtube video called Yoga with Adriene for beginners and I've never looked back. No expensive gym membership needed, all I have bought is a £8 yoga mat from Amazon and a £2 yoga block from Tiger and there you have it, exercise, clarity and peace for the foreseeable future.
While I say yoga and meditation put everything into place, I don't mean a miricac…
