Hey lovelies,

I wanted to share a little post about ways of helping yourself not getting sucked in to the negative side of the social media world. Whether we are aware of it or not, looking through peoples photos and snippets of their lives can impact our self esteem. The more assumptions and judgments we make, the more it bleeds into our self-confidence. Everyone is a  creative, beautiful human being in their own right, with so many incredible unique personalities. I’m not saying Instagram isn’t amazing, as it’s a place to create your own portfolio of memories and photographs, and a platform to meet some incredible people. But it’s vital that we speak about some of these underlying issues- so we can help one another realise it’s not always the reality of everyone’s lives. We are lucky to be living our own unique life. Not making assumptions and comparing is extremely important when it comes to your health.

A few things that I’d recommend doing that I find helps me personally –

-Put your phone away when your walking and eating. You’ve got to focus on your surroundings and enjoy the moments you are in.

– You can choose who you follow. Don’t sit there strolling through people’s Instagrams feeling envious or thinking ‘he/she’s got this wow’ because even if you don’t think it is impacting you, it is. The effects of social media don’t leave when you put your phone down.

-Don’t check social media before bed. You need time to switch off and allow your body to relax before sleep. Studies say that it affects how we sleep, and I completely agree with this. Give yourself an hour to meditate, read, listen to music or just lay still.

YOU are all such wonderful unique people. Remember to treasure all the moments in your life, not other peoples. And I hope you don’t feel any of those things, but recently I have been. So thought I’d be honest and share a little about what’s been helping me.

We aren’t going to remember spending hours scrolling on Instagram, so make sure you spend your time focusing on exciting adventures, experiences and all the little moments.

Love, India Moon.

Hello you lovely lot!

Hope life is treating you all well! I recently have changed up my hair and nail care products and appliances! Ever since having my colour change and cut, it’s been extremely important for me to try keep my hair in the best condition I can! I style my hair often using a lot of heat, so anything that is going to leave my hair super soft I LOVE! I thought I’d do a little post of photos of my favourite products, with little descriptions about why they are all so amazing!

I’ll start with nails!! Now I’ve never been a big fan of nail polishes because I find they always dry up so quick or go clumpy, or just never come out just right! I also am always on the hunt for the perfect grey toned nail polish! I’ve recently been using the beautiful Roxanne Campbell Autumnal Nail polishes. Her nail polishes are incredible! They are long lasting, cruelty free and there is a huge range of seasonal colours to fit all seasonal trends! Here are my favourite colours (below)

Roxanne Campbell- WEBSITE HERE!  

Now on to hair…. There are so many products I love so I’m gunna keep it short and simple!

GROW GORGEOUS HAIR CARE: I recently went to a lovely event with Grow Gorgeous Hair Care- and fell in love with their products!

The Full Bodied Volumising range is so perfect in giving your hair a boost and gives so much volume and shine!

The Scalp Detox and Back to Roots Mask- Makes your hair feel incredible! It makes my hair feel fuller, and shiny which I love! The Back to Roots Mask is my favourite-It’s like having a head massage, you leave on for 10 minutes and your scalp feels insane!

I have also been using some wonderful products from Paul Mitchel- I went to their Christmas Party Dinner, which made me so excited for Christmas and also so excited about making my hair smell like heaven!

I received this- which has changed my hair life! I was really struggling with toner as it would tend to leave huge purple streaks in my hair! Where as this Gem Lites- Colour care, help stop colour fading by adding colour within washes and keeping it soft! They come in 10 different shades so if you are having problems with your colour, I’d 100% recommend!! — LINK HERE TO GEM LITES.

If you wanna smell like you’ve been at a hairdresser all day! This is the shampoo to use, my hair feels silky soft and I can’t stop smelling it!!! I also use the hair spray as it smells wonderful and doesn’t leave my hair feeling sticky! Shop their products HERE!

NOW for styling! I get asked a lot about what I use to curl and straighten my hair! Well recently I’ve been using some incredible hair appliances! Which have made it super easy for me when styling and drying my hair!

First off the incredible, detangle brush hair dryer from Glamoriser! My hair is very thick and gets so knotty, so I never used to enjoy drying my hair. This is so lovely and easy to use! It drys your hair really quick and keeps it feeling amazing! Honestly you all need one of these in your life!! CLICK HERE to purchase!

I also now use this amazing In Styler Ceramic Styling Brush which makes my hair feel insane! If you struggle getting your hair super straight or find it leaves it feeling super knotty, then you should 100% try this!! CLICK HERE to purchase!

I’ve also been using my InStyler Rotating Iron! Which straightens, curls and adds volume! You can use it to style your hair is so many ways, and works an absolute treat when I’m trying to curl my hair, as I’ve always struggled to curl the back! It’s super easy to use, and the brush allows it to feel smooth, which is ideal! If your wondering how I get my curls and straight hair this is what I use, and I couldn’t love it more! It’s worth every penny, and the most perfect gifts! CLICK HERE to purchase!

Hello lovelies!

Hope you’re all well!

After doing a poll on instagram a lot of you said you’d like a post about why I started blogging and how I got into it all! So I thought I’d do a little post about it, with any little tips I can include along the way!

I’ve always loved fashion and been interested in styling. I love having the escapism of writing and being able to share my thoughts on my own little platform, that to me kinda feels like my own little world or scrap book. When I started working at Topshop about 3 years ago, I was surrounded by girls who had a huge love for fashion including my incredible best friend and stylish Pia Gloria. Being surrounded by that support and inspiration naturally just pushed me towards creating my own space to write down and share my styles.

I started by creating my page, I searched different themes using Pip.dig who were really helpful when creating my blog layout and helping me set it up. I created my page with WordPress and create a domain with Siteground allowing me to have loveindiamoon.co.uk!

After that, I started slow. I posted little bits here and there and really just enjoyed writing ALOT. I say a lot because I honestly would rant on and on! I think after about 6 months I hit a wall… I started comparing. Everyone does it once in a while, but mine was becoming unhealthy. I started comparing and feeling really down about myself, which was no ones fault but my own. So I decided to stop to focus some time on me and feeling a bit more happy and healthy in my body. I unfollowed people who I was obsessing over, who were showing a dreamy lifestyle (which is wonderful and I have no problem with at all) but at the time it was just making me compare myself and my life too. Which was just were I was at in that moment.  After a few months of focusing on myself, positivity and my health. Realising that it’s okay to have days of comparison but also its important to love parts of myself and my flaws. It really helped me feel a little more confident in just doing me. Doing something that makes me happy and creating an Instagram platform and blog space that reflects me and my own personal journey.

That’s why I love blogging, I love styling outfits, i love photography, I love working with brands and I especially love all the incredible and supportive influencers I’ve met along the way so far. It honestly is such a hard working, beautiful community and being part of it is super exciting.

I’m ranting on of course, so I’ll try keep it quick… I then decided to start back up and again take it slow but post more of me within my captions, photos and styling! Rather than thinking about how many followers or likes or if I’m posting the right kind of brands… I’ve just been enjoying the process!! I enjoy just being able to express myself.

If you ever want to start blogging, YouTube or just Instagram blogging then do it!!!! Don’t think about what others may think, just make sure your happy, your expressing yourself and focusing on you.

Try not to get caught up in comparing, as we are all on our own journeys and should all support one another along the way!

Thought I’d included some colourful shots taken by the beautiful Allison Stoddard- Instagram here.

Hey Lovelies,

I thought I’d do a quick little post today about some new Tanning products I’ve been using recently, because they have been so bloody great, I thought I’d share them with you all!!

Tan out of Ten- Is a self tanning range from Technic Cosmetics and they create some really great tanning products!

Over the last few weeks I’ve been using the Self Tan Lotion in dark- LINK HERE Now I’ve never used Lotion, as I usually use foam but it so easy to apply and makes my skin so so smooth!! I found it worked really well and gave me a soft glow or if I left it on overnight I found it barely stained my bedding and the tan was such a perfect colour!

I also have been using the Instant Tan Shimmer- LINK HERE and oh my goodness!!!!! So much sparkle! It is honestly the most perfect instant tan, that gives you an amazing shine! I couldn’t recommend it more!

Heres a few little photos of the tan outcomes!! Who doesn’t love an affordable and amazing tan!

Love, India Moon.
