    I'm A Self-Confessed Hot Mess – Here's 29 Products That Have Actually Helped Me Achieve My Goals

    Who'd have thought a cute teacup could help me stay hydrated?

    ✨ The Goal ✨ – to make time for little 'me' moments.

    1. I find that carving out time for myself starts at the very beginning of the day, so waking up on the right side of the bed is crucial! Enter: this sunrise alarm clock.

    2. Nothing makes me feel more like 'that girl' than making my own barista-level beverages every morning, and that's mostly thanks to my Hotel Chocolat Velvetiser!

    3. And these Monin syrups just add so much joy to my morning coffees.

    4. I'm often rushing out the door at the best of times, so it's a bit tricky to find time for a soothing 'me time' bath! Luckily, this shower steamer feels just as relaxing as a bath bomb.

    5. And when things are feeling a little too hectic, popping a relaxing song on and stealing five minutes alone with this absolutely huge bar of dairy milk chocolate is always a great option.

    ✨ The Goal ✨ – to save money by doing things myself.

    6. I already enjoyed doing DIY manicures, but this incredible top coat makes the whole process faster, more professional-looking, and gives me longer lasting results!

    7. And this instant cuticle remover gel helps me to get salon-worthy results in a fraction of the time!

    8. I used to spend a fortune on lash lifts at the salon, but now I've tried this lash lift kit I might just stick to doing them at home!

    9. This stunning marble contact paper took my WFH desk from basique to très chic.

    10. I then used this gold washi tape around the edges for a more ~luxe~ finish.

    ✨ The Goal ✨ – to get more organised.

    11. These drawer dividers meant I could *finally* sort out The Dreaded Drawer that I used to shove all my random things in.

    12. I'm someone who hates clutter, but also hates the clutter that's caused by tidying up the clutter! So I'm ashamed to say it took me a while to organise the mess of wires behind my TV – this cable tidy box made it easy though!

    13. I store my excess pan lids in these handy holders rather than letting them crash around in the cupboard.

    14. I find it difficult to properly organise my day, but this daily planner pad is so pretty, I'm actually motivated to fill it out each morning!

    ✨ The Goal ✨ – to drink more 'healthy' liquids.

    15. This water bottle's large capacity and straw mouthpiece makes it much easier to stay hydrated throughout the day.

    16. While I enjoy a coffee every now and then, green tea is my main caffeine fix most of the time, but I'll be honest – I'm not a huge fan of the bitter taste. Luckily this matcha green tea powder has a subtle, earthy taste that I love!

    17. And call me five years old, but I actually look forward to drinking my morning tea from this stunning Frida Kahlo teacup and saucer set!

    ✨ The Goal ✨ – to reduce unnecessary waste.

    18. Since I've started making a conscious effort to eat more healthily, I've been known to get brave in the fruit and veg aisle! Luckily, if I've over-purchased, these clever discs help to keep them fresher for way longer.

    19. And if you're *still* left with loads of veggies that you're not sure what to do with, you can always throw them in this Instant Pot for a quick, easy, and delicious meal.

    20. IMO, these glass straws are superior to any other style of reusable straw.

    ✨ The Goal ✨ – to keep more active.

    21. Nothing makes me feel more motivated to go to the gym than this chic-yet-affordable gym bag!

    22. These leggings are hands down the comfiest and most flattering pair I own. I loved them so much, I ended up buying them in two colours!

    23. It's unreal how much of a difference this microfibre yoga towel made to my home workouts!

    24. Speaking of home workouts, these resistance bands make them feel just as effective as weighted ones in the gym!

    25. These leggings have pockets(!) so I can store my phone and keys safely while out running.

    26. And when they're in the wash I use this running belt to firmly hold all my valuables.

    27. And for a good jumpsuit that can be used for yoga and pilates on lighter workout days, this Amazon essentials one fits the bill.

    ✨ The Goal ✨ – to feel more comfortable driving.

    28. Since my car doesn't have a built-in sat nav, this sturdy magnetic phone holder is essential!

    29. And driving in the winter brought a new problem – condensation! That is, until this dehumidifier bag stepped in to keep my windshield clear.
