Thank-you. Thank-you. Thank-you! I’ve officially got 100 followers.
Following on from my previous post on New Years Resolutions, one of mine was to save. I’ve never been a great saver. Growing up, I used to get £2.50 pocket money every week..
I know. Complete baller. But I couldn’t for the life of me save. Continue reading
The title of this blog has pretty much made an appearance on every blogging platform in the last few months so I thought why not jump on the band wagon and review the products that I’ve bought that I’ve seen on YouTube?
Diaries are always fun. I’ve never really kept a daily diary as on most days, I really cannot be bothered with jotting down every trivial goings on in my life that day but when I was about thirteen, I actually managed to keep a diary for an entire year. And this weekend, I went to my dad’s house to sort out my old bedroom and stumbled across that very diary and boy, oh, boy, it is hilarious! Continue reading
New year, new you?
Let’s face it, we’ve all said that notorious phrase at least once in our lives. Come New Years’ Day it’s like we want to complete renovate ourselves into this super slim, super smart, super organised person who has every aspect of their life together. But does that ever happen? No. Not that that’s a bad thing though.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
Today is Winter Solstice, meaning it is officially the longest day of the year – although I’m pretty sure that was the day Trump was elected President.. Anyway, it’s the longest day of the year with approximately 17 hours of darkness. And if you’re one of them lucky souls like me that spend a good nine hours of their day locked away in an office, you probably won’t see any sunlight at all. Yay! So with all this darkness and long gloomy winter nights, I thought it was a perfect time to share my survival kit with you on how to get through all the darkness and add some brightness into your winter days!
Nothing quite says Christmas like an elbow right in the hip in Primark over the last pair of Christmas themed fluffy socks or the bittersweet agony when a pushchair is rolled over your foot for the final roll of glittery gift wrap in Clinton’s that holds a baby that can only be described as King Kong and Shrek’s secret love child. It seriously is the most wonderful time of the year.
When I think of Christmas, the first thing I think of is cosy nights in the warmth when it’s dark outside, watching Christmas movies with a hot chocolate. And a few years ago, I decided to be a bit daring by mixing one of my favourite shots into a hot chocolate and I haven’t looked back since. A Baileys and Cointreau hot chocolate that literally tastes like a melted Terry’s Chocolate Orange with that alcoholic twist. H e a v e n.
As well as treating my friends and family this Christmas, I decided it was only right I treated my house (and myself) too. This Christmas is my first Christmas where I’ll be spending a lot of time in my own place. I had flats and houses in London but I used to spend two weeks back at my parents’ house so I never actually got to spend time over the festive period in my own space. And since I’ve got friends and family visiting too, I thought I’d make my house all cute and pretty for them too.
