You are in control of your life: 7 ways to have strength in the face of adversity


Pegs making up a word happy

Difficult times come in many different forms, some are experienced on a personal level while other 
difficulties are related to the suffering of those around you. What is difficult to someone may not be difficult for another, so for the sake of this post, I am leaving the subjectivity of the word: “difficulty” up to you. 

When something difficult occurs in life, the automatic response to it is denial and blame – “Why did this happen to me? The world must be cursed”. This is a natural way to response to hardships, however life is not pleasant – so after being blown off your course by several difficulties in a row, it is likely that you will lose all your purpose for living itself.

I think that this is partially one of the main causes of depression (along with the more biological ones). Knowing what to do in the face of constant adversity is a skill that is extremely valuable. It will carry you far into success. 

So, if you are asking now, what do I do? Don’t fear my friend, I’ve got you. Here are some nuggets of wisdom learned experience from my life, and advice from my ingenious fiance Ben.

Valentine's Inspired Makeup Look Tutorial


Flatlay of products that Laura used for her valentines inspired makeup look

It’s almost Valentine's, and for the occasion, I wanted to share this makeup look with you. It’s a little purple and pink fantasy. Just a little disclaimer – I am by no means a makeup artist. I just find it quite 
fun to do makeup occasionally and not look like a potato. Anyways, I will go through the makeup steps with you guys x

In terms of Valentine's Day, remember that you don’t have to have a lover to have fun on the day. Take care of yourself, and don’t succumb to loneliness. If you start feeling horrible, stop checking social media and take yourself out as a treat – you deserve it. Everything on social media is exaggerated, the same as Valentine's Day. Do whatever you want to do. Celebrate it or have an ordinary day.

Just make sure you get yourself to the supermarket the next day for discounted chocolate (just saying 💗)
