So there we have it, another year is over and we are catapulted right back to the beginning once again.
2017 is over, been and gone and 2018 has been thrust upon us with such force that it’s time to start thinking of the resolutions that usually get thrown away 2 weeks in (you know I’m right!)
2018 feels different. I woke up this morning – slightly hungover I must add – with an overwhelming sense of determination. I don’t know what it is, or why, but I have feeling this year is the one. I know I say that every single year, but it feels like a fire has ignited inside of me, the fog has cleared from in front of my eyes and I have a proper vision of where it’s all heading.
After reading a postby one of my favourite bloggers, I felt inspired to write down what I have learnt from the past year and what I am taking with me into the new one. Stay with me on this one, it could be long.
I’m currently sat in my comfies, shovelling biscuits down my throat and listening to George Michael all whilst still having a niggling headache. Here goes.
It’s finally here; the season of getting cosy in bed, the days of Netflix binging and sipping on endless amounts of hot chocolate. I, for one, love this time of year because I am such a recluse and am a lover of the things I have just mentioned, so it’s perfect for me to be able to sit indoors, listen to the rain on the window and know that I don’t have to leave the house.
I’ve teamed up with Debenhams on their campaign to help with cosying up this winter and creating the perfect setting for your dark and cold nights. I’ve selected a couple of items from their new collection to make my evening as Hygge as possible.
Autumn. Yay! September. Yay! 2017 is nearly over, Ya– oh?
How bloody speedy has this year gone? It only seems like yesterday that I was setting New Years Resolutions (which still haven’t been completed – anyone else?) and saying that this year was gonna be the one…
Anywho, I thought I would bring you and update on what is actually going on in my life, alongside some of my favourite things at the moment and what I’m currently loving.
Let’s be honest, we’ve all been there. We’ve all got to that point in our lives where we question everything. Where we question what we’re doing, where it’s all heading and just get stuck – completely forgetting our destination in life. It happens to the best of us.
But it’s okay! It’s alright because we all have it. I think it’s part of growing up, part of discovering where you’re destined to be and part of creating our own path towards the life you are supposed to live.
I am a firm believer of everything happens for a reason so all of the events that unfold throughout our lives are just carving the way for a better and brighter future: we are all allowed to be happy, and I believe that the universe wants that for us, we just have to be brave enough to reach out and take it.
Sometimes, all it takes is just a little glimpse of rock bottom to spur you to get back on your feet and face the world with two fingers up. That’s ok. It’s all ok, I assure you.
I know exactly what you’re thinking. Summer is over. I know. But guess what? It’s still July so I’m gonna bring you my Summer fashion Essentials courtesy of New Look.*
I picked up and put together a couple of outfits that will still look good even when the weather is getting a little bit colder. That will probably be in a few weeks, but doesn’t that just mean we need to enjoy it while it lasts.
So I’ve teamed up with New Look to help you pick up the last minute best pieces for this season!
It’s that time of year again – the day that singletons dread, the day that makes you want to avoid all social media, the day of the “boy/girl did good”s. But no fear, whether you’re buying for a significant other, a family member, or even yourself (go on, you know you want to), these gifts will suffice.
It seems that every single week I am searching for something new to add to my grooming routine; whether it be tackling my sensitive skin, battling with my un-stylable hair or updating my aftershave pile, I am often surprised (and super delighted) when I find something that actually does good things.
This time around, I stumbled upon the Black Charcoal Wash “Magnetic Wash” from L’Oreal Men Expert which has completely revolutionised my grooming process in the morning – cutting it down half the time.
I know what you’re all thinking and, believe me, I think that Instagram has gone downhill since the algorithm too, but that only means that we need to step our game up to get our content bigger and better than it was before – who doesn’t want to improve?!
That’s why I wanted to give an insight into what I use to get my photos Instagram-worthy, because I am such a perfectionist and any old photo won’t do for me! I don’t consider myself a champ in any way so don’t take this as me sharing my wise words of wisdom, I just wanted to show how I get my pictures to a standard where they’re worth posting.
