Reflecting on Posting Everyday

Oh Blogmas, what a fun little project you were. After never having the confidence or time to attempt Blogmas (December is one of the busiest times at university, after all!) I knew it was my mission this year to give it a go for the very first time. I knew it would be a challenge, creating blog content is no easy feat and whilst I bloody love it, I worried that I would run out of creative ideas, motivation and even more simply… time.

Starting The New Year Positive

2018 is well and truly underway, even if, like me, you have no idea how it is already 2018. I have personally never been a fan of New Year or January as a whole, but this, I want to put a positive spin on it and start as I mean to go on. January is the perfect time for a new start but you don’t have to put as much pressure on it as it sounds. The last few years I have got rid of New Year Resolutions and stuck primarily to goals (see mine here) and that already has helped to take off the pressure of the New Year.

The Stand Out Products of 2017

The Stand Out Products of 2017

2017 was an impressive year for the beauty industry. We saw the introduction of some major ground-breaking brands including Fenty Beauty, Kylie Cosmetics branched away from just lip kits, Glossier finally launched in the UK and everyone was talking about Colourpop. Still. In the latter part of the year, I finally fell back in love with makeup. I have always loved it and always enjoyed it doing it, but I went through a stage of not being bothered by owning anything new or new releases. Thankfully, as the year progressed, the spark came back and I finally got back into makeup, lusting over new releases and wanting to try all the products. And now, my wishlist is as long as my arm but, what’s new?!

The 2018 Goals

I think that 2018 will be one of the scarier years I’ve had yet simply because I no longer have that comfort blanket of school, college or university. I’m still working part-time, which is my own personal choice, and I’m really enjoying how everything is working out at the moment, but there is definitely still that part of me that is a little bit apprehensive of what 2018 will entail.

Reflecting on 2017

Here we are. Just one day away from 2018. A brand new 365 days. A new start, a whole new bloomin’ year. The whole ‘this year has gone so fast!!!’ chat may be as boring as small-talk about the weather (corrrr, isn’t it cold?!) but that truly is it, this past year has gone incredibly fast and honestly, it doesn’t feel right to be sitting down and reflecting on 2017 already.

The Best Pick of The Boxing Day Sales

This year, I am so excited by the sales! I’m not even sure why but I am just loving the deals out there at the moment! Not forgetting to mention the ease of ordering everything I want online, sitting on my sofa, stuffing my face with cheese and chocolate, in my comfy loungewear (thanks, Santa!) with some cheesy movie in the background. Oh no, you will not be finding me pushing and shoving my way around a shopping centre this year!
