The Game Changers
The Game Changers is a book by Samantha Brett and Steph Adams with some life advice and inspirational stories of women from Australia and around the globe who are changing the world. Part one of the book contains chapters on Creating your own brand, staying balanced, preparing for a job interview and building a loyal Instagram following, amongst other things. The second part contains stories of women who are changing the world including their motto and top tips. The list of game changers includes Meghan Markle, Bobbi Brown, Julie Bishop and Elle Macpherson. If I had to describe this book in one word it would be Inspirational.

I found this skincare company called MooGoo. They have hundreds of testimonials from people who have tried their products and loved them. I'm trying out some of their products now. MooGoo started on a dairy farm in Perth (hence the name). They are environmentally friendly, not tested on animals, natural and made in Australia. Their range includes acne cream, dermatitis cream, soap, moisturiser, shampoo and other products. There is also a cosmetics range called Dusty Girls. You can purchase MooGoo online or at your local health food store or chemist. You can check out their website here.
FYI, let me start by saying at the outset, you don't have to shave your legs and armpits. If you decide you want to there are some things you need to know first. Kid's Health has some interesting information. This video was made by Gillette so they're promoting their products. It's American so they refer to shaving cream as shaving gel. If you have sensitive skin it can help to shave in a downward motion as opposed to upwards as shown in this video.
Don't Die Curious
When you have a grateful attitude your brain releases chemicals that improve your mental wellbeing. So if you are anxious, think of some things you are grateful for and it will help improve your state of mind. I keep a gratitude journal where I write three things that I am grateful for each day. You might like to use sticky notes and put them on your wall.

Do Hard things first
This is a good principal for all areas of life, whether you're tackling homework, chores or your to do list. If you put off the hard things you will most likely run out of motivation and possibly time. If you do the hard things first, you will be more likely to have the motivation to keep going through the easier tasks too. Plus you will have the satisfaction of crossing them off your list, rather than the nagging dread that they still need to be done.
Happiness is not by chance
