My Experience With CBD Oil and Anxiety | Gifted

My Experience With CBD Oil and Anxiety | Gifted

Depression and anxiety are something I’ve struggled with for years. I’m not on any medication, so I try to help improve my mental health with counselling and self-care. Counselling has been something that has helped a lot, and I recommend it to anybody who has access to it! However, I’m not in counselling all the time. The rest of the time, my mental health is down to me.

I had heard about CBD oil before for things like pain relief, and have only recently heard about its uses for anxiety through Helen Anderson. Not long after, I was approached by a company called Salve Herbal who kindly gifted me one of their 5% CBD oils! Over the last month I’ve been trying out their product and seeing how it would help me with my anxiety and sleep (as I’ve also heard it can improve sleep quality).

Christmas Gift Guide for Her

Christmas Gift Guide for Her

Hi lovelies, and welcome back! Before I start, I just want to say that although this is a Christmas gift guide for her, these are just the presents I have bought for the girls/women in my life. I do appreciate that many, if not all, of these presents can be bought for people of any gender. My gift guide for him will be similar in that you may find something for anybody on there. That one will be up next, so come back tomorrow for more gift ideas!

I started buying my Christmas presents a couple of months ago, so I could get on top of everything before my exams hit. Because of that, I’ve been in the Christmas spirit for ages. I’m so excited to finally be able to show you what I’ve got my loved ones this year, and share this Christmas spirit with you!

My Current Skincare Routine

My Current Skincare Routine

As you’ll already know if you read my How I Am Improving My Lifestyle post, I haven’t quite hacked the morning AND evening skincare routine yet. Right now, I cleanse and prep my face once a day. (Bad, I know!) Depending on when I shower, or when I have time, this could either be morning or evening. I was going to name this post my “night-time skincare routine” but considering that, I thought it wasn’t an accurate title. Instead, today, I’ll be taking you through my current skincare routine!

September Birchbox

September Birchbox

Hi guys, and welcome back! Today we’ll be reviewing the September Birchbox. First off, my pros and cons with this month’s box. Pros are that the products are great this month and I’m so excited to try every single one of them. However, there are no full-sized products. And while the box design is pretty, a part of me was expecting something more Autumn-y since we’re now stepping into everybody’s favourite season! That last one, however, isn’t a huge deal.

Now, let’s move on to reviewing the products, shall we?

August Birchbox

August Birchbox

Hi guys, and welcome back to my August Birchbox review! Sorry that this one has been uploaded later than usual, I’ve been so busy with work this month. Next month, it will definitely be earlier on – and I’m so excited for next month’s box as it comes with a cute Benefit blush sample!

If you’re interested in trying out Birchbox next month and receiving this gorgeous Benefit blusher, you can use my link (here) to get £5 off your first box! I’ll get an extra sample as a gift if you do use my link, so we both get to Benefit (get it?) from this deal.

Now, onto my review! I’m quite happy with this month’s box – I only have a few concerns. But we will get into those as we go.
