This weekend was the official start of Autumn, the slight chill in the air and my impatience definitely suggested my favourite season was well and truly on its way and finally, after the longest summer ever, it’s here. And I couldn’t be happier. I am welcoming chilly days, frosty mornings and thunderstorms with fully open arms.
It’s been widely talked about on social media the pressure to be constantly churning out new content and Instagram pictures and tweets and probably a few Pinterest pins here and there too. But when it comes to being a fashion blogger, it then becomes a case of churning out new content that features new things. A new outfit, some new accessories, a reason for your Instagram post.
There’s no better feeling than coming home from work, checking your email inbox and seeing an event invite asking if you would like to spend an evening with John Lewis, getting to meet and know some of the beauty and fashion brands in the store.
Ok, let’s be honest, just one look at my Twitter and you’ll know that 9 pm every night, I’m sitting in my bed surrounded by an unhealthy amount of snacks, ITV2 streaming on my laptop and my phone in my hand, Twitter open, ready for my commentary and thoughts on the show the nation is unapologetically obsessed with.
I love a beauty box. Aren’t they just the best idea? You choose which box you are going to go for, wait for it to be delivered and then you get to try samples (and even some full sized) beauty products. They are the perfect excuse to give something a new a go before you splurge your cash on it and they introduce you to new brands you perhaps wouldn’t have thought of trying before. Plus, who doesn’t love those little sample sized things? Sample-sized products are so blooming perfect for chucking in your handbag or your travel makeup bag. I just love them.
… You’re 23! I bet you remember being 18 years old and never imagining you’d be a whole three years into your twenties! Nursery is long, long gone, primary school was a breeze, secondary schools been and done, college went by too quickly and university was the best four years of your life. But now, you’re 23 and the whole world is in front of you.
