Emptying your wardrobe into a huge pile can be extremely overwhelming, so instead do it in smaller sections such as pants first then t-shirts.
2. Donate anything that doesn’t fit.
Don’t hold on to items you don’t fit in to in the hope that you one day will – its not worth it. Get rid of those ill fitting clothes and make way for some gorgeous new pieces!
3. Donate any items you haven’t worn in the past year.
Chances are if you haven’t worn a piece of clothing in the past year, you wont wear it again.
4. Get rid of anything damaged.
It’s hard to part with your favourite top, but if its stained or covered in holes it’s not worth holding on to. Throw out any items too damaged to wear in public.
5. Get rid of anything that doesn’t suit your body shape
Not all trends suit every body shape, so throw away anything that isn’t flattering. Alternatively, you could modify the clothes to suit your shape in many ways such changing the length.
I hope that I’ve helped you out.
Do any of you have any tips on clearing out your wardrobe?
I’m going to share with you 5 of my absolute essential skin and hair care items for these hot summer months.
My lips always get extremely dry and cracked during the summer, so I always make sure that I use a good quality lip balm with SPF in it to not only stop them getting chapped, but to protect them from the sun too.
One of my favourites at the moment is Carmex cherry lip balm as it lasts for ages on my lips, smells amazing and has SPF 15.
It’s also extremely important to protect your skin from the sun, so I use Neutrogena’s Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock.
I’ve got a review of this here.
Coconut oil is absolutely brilliant. It can be used as a hair mask twice a week to help promote healthy growth and leaves your hair feeling so soft! All you do is apply it from root to tip, then leave it for at least half an hour and wash it out. It’s also a brilliant moisturiser to use on those drier areas such as your elbows and knees.
Having oily skin in the summertime is awful, it just seems to look ten times worse. However, changing my moisturiser during the summer to Neutrogena’s visibly clear oil free moisturiser helps to stop my skin getting as shiny throughout the day. The extremely light formula also helps to prevent breakouts.
BB cream is a great alternative to foundation during the summer as it covers up any imperfections whilst still being extremely lightweight and natural looking. I use Garnier’s BB cream, you can find a review here.
I hope i’ve given you some tips or ideas.
