Self Care | Maddox Empire

Today I’m going to talk a little bit about self care. I’m sure you’ve heard/seen the rumour mill spreading around the beauty community like wild fire and the reverb of those who are dissatisfied with their jobs or positions has been overwhelming and that really does just come down to one thing which is self care.


No matter what you do in life if you’re not paying any attention to yourself, then different areas of your life will begin suffer because of that; this is true for any problem that you have which is why I’ve decided to talk about this topic. When I first started this blog around 2 years ago I was crazy for makeup and that’s all it was about but then there came a point where I didn’t feel as passionate writing about just makeup, so I switched things up and spoke about fashion, LGBT related subjects and now things like this. Just that little change kept it interesting and switching things up made me enjoy what I was doing again and reminded me why I decided to start blog this in the first place.


Its super important to take care of yourself and therefore it’s important to revaluate how you feel about things and why, it’s easy to become dissatisfied when you’re stuck in rut but can’t pin point why that is. Obviously the example I’ve just used isn’t a be all and end all situation but no matter what problem you have, this simple exercise I’m about to show you will help you focus your thoughts and bring to light what you need to do to solve the problem or make the situation better.

Let me know how you find it, I’m always interested in hearing what the lovely readers of my blog have to say.

ASOS New Homeware Collection | Maddox Empire

Usually this time of year is all about hearts, glasses of champagne, hot gal makeup & clothes but I kind of had to stop everything to write about ASOS’ new homeware/living collection on the new section of the site. Did anyone know this was coming because I really didn’t? Anyway I’m in love with the new stylish accessories for the home, so much so that I actually took time out of editing a Valentines video to spend a little time shopping! You can shop the whole collection HERE, I’m not affiliated in anyway  just FYI.

Here are my top 10 picks:

  • ASOS Supply Scoll Frame Mirror for £35.00 – is it just me or does this mirror just scream grown up Disney princess? Well, that’s why I had to have it; it’s elegant yet girly (in a grown up way), bound to add a touch of class to any room.

  • ASOS Supply Pom Pom Throw at £28.00 – This is so beautiful and so 2019, I need them to do this in a baby pink or cream/white and yes, I would buy all 3. I adore blankets an these look super snuggly but lightweight as the listing describes, I can’t wait to get my hands on it.

  • Zuperzozial Bamboo Biodegradable Set of 3 Hanging Plant Pots just £17.00 – This beautiful bamboo piece is stylish, very eye catching and natural. Everything is included to set up right away, it’s exactly what I’ve been looking for to spruce up my kitchen a little.

  • Umbra Set of Concrete Wall Planters for £25.00 – I love these gold toned & concrete plant hangers. You can place them anywhere and can be used for a multitude of things, not just plants although they do look completely adorable with these little succulents in!

  • Kiss Me Love Hearts Kiss Me Light at £19.99 – Millennials everywhere will swoon over this little love hearts ‘kiss me’ light. It’s super cute, safe to touch unlike traditional neons and it’s already mounted so there’s no tricky bits to try and deal with fitting it to the wall etc. Also would be a good little Valentines gift, just saying…

  • Flamingo Candle ‘Hotter Than Hell’ in Pina Colada only £12.00 – who doesn’t like flamingos?! As we all know I love them that much I’ve decorated my hall way with them, so when I seen this I knew that I needed it in my life. Make a bold statement with this candle and the scent is perfect for the cup and coming season.

  • Chickidee Matte Gold & Pink Cutlery Set £14.00 – How beautiful is this cutlery set? This is a statement for anyones kitchen and if you ask me it’s a pretty good moving in gift if you’re giving a special someone a little key to your place this V day…
    Screen Shot 2019-02-04 at 14.52.47.png
  • Kado Copper Metal Straws for £9.99  – Remember when people used to think that doing a little bit for the planet was a little too much effort? Well not anymore, especially with these metal straws in a Rose Gold finish. They are just so pretty and they’ve been calling my name every since I laid my eyes on them.
    Screen Shot 2019-02-04 at 14.58.30.png
  • Sass & Belle Good Times Only Mug  for £9.00 – Well I like rainbows (must be a gay thing), I love gift boxes and I like mugs for nice things like hot beverages so it’s a yes all around from me!
    Screen Shot 2019-02-04 at 14.58.38.png
  • Disney Dumbo Mug for just £12.00 – drum roll please! I have saved the best until last with this little guy. I love him, he’s stolen my heart, take my money, thanks & bye. Honestly what more can I possibly say?
