I’ll start this post firstly by saying that I am not an insomniac. I generally sleep okay however there are days when I toss and turn and before I know it, it’s 4:30am – 2 hours before my alarm sounds.

Chronic backache and everyday stresses cause me this lack of sleep however I feel like I may have found my cure.

Now, I’ve heard a lot about This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray and always just thought it to be gimmicky and overpriced. Until I tried it. I first bought the Stress Less rollerball as it was cheaper and pretty much claims to do the same thing and now I feel lost without it.

The scent is so soothing and calming that I seem to drop right off to sleep without so much as a toss or a turn. I apply it to my temples and just around my nose area so that I’m directly breathing it in (maybe I’m breathing it in too much?? Can you overdose on it?!) and it sends me to sleep within minutes.

The Pillow Spray works in much the same way, just spritz it a few times across your pillow and wait a few minutes to get into bed and this, working simultaneously with the rollerball, works wonders!
Comatose in just a few minutes? Sounds good to me.

Summer is the happiest season, am I right? It’s a time for relaxation, sipping fresh cocktails on a beach somewhere exotic (or in the back garden if you’re me) it’s a time for sun-tans (or sun burn), sand between your toes and no stresses (well, only about the sand in annoying and uncomfortable crevices, again, if you’re me).

This summer, I am most likely to be stuck in “boring old England” however, I am trying to make it less on the “boring” side. This summer I will be turning 21 (June 26th is a date for your diary…) so it’s a turning point of sorts. I will be a proper adult with actual adult responsibilities (if you consider not spending my whole student loan within a fortnight a responsibility…).

With a few internships in the bag for the next few months I am hoping to “pull myself together” and be a bit more normal in the run up to my third year of university, through which I will no doubt want to give up on life completely whilst simultaneously trying to make it the best it can be. An oxymoron of sorts.

Well that’s enough rambling for one day, who knows when I’ll be back for another ramble/actual decent content. But for now I’ll publish this and then get back to real work like figuring out which shade of nail polish makes my toes look ready for the summer heat that they probably won’t experience.
