It’s been just over a year since I wrote my first blog post and flung it out into the world. In this time it’s become dearer to me than I ever could have imagined and I love the way me and my blog have grown together. I’ve discovered a whole world I had previously only scratched the surface of and my eyes have been well and truly opened. Recently, I’ve really wanted to up my Instagram game so after seeing this on basically every Instagram feed I follow, I used some of my ASOS A-LIST points to buy Capture Your Style, which promises to help you “transform your Instagram photos, showcase your life and build the ultimate platform”.
A few months ago I won a twitter competition for some free Soap & Glory goodies which I was very excited to receive in the post. Clean on Me was already a firm favourite of mine, having received it many a Christmas and I love the creamy texture and subtle scents. I also find these bottles last for absolutely ages which is always a massive bonus.
A couple of weekends ago Adam and I went for lovely walk in Arundel and it was the perfect opportunity to pop into one of my favourite brunch spots. The Loft is situated right at the top of a shop called Sparks Yard which sells all sorts of quirky homeware and hosts a menu of breakfast, brunch and lunch items from pancakes to burgers.
Over the past few months I’ve been trying to pay much more attention to what I’m eating and putting in my body. Now, don’t get me wrong… I’m still all about treats but am trying to take a more ‘everything in moderation approach’ so that I can enjoy these even more.
As you may know, I love a subscription box so when I found out about Ethical Kitchen, I couldn’t pass up the chance for coffee, chocolate and snacks delivered to my door.
I’ve been a bit slow in writing the next set of these posts, but don’t worry they’re on the way! Today I want to talk a bit of a weird technique I use to help stop me faffing and make sure I get at least some of my goals achieved. I like to think I’m ambitious, which is great, but I’m also quite indecisive which means I end up with lots of different grand plans. Plans to open an online shop, plans to improve my blog, plans to start doing more crafts… I have lots of plans.
Today I’ve really been pondering how it’s the simple things that make us happy and for me this is optimised by the simple notion of breakfast in bed. There’s no greater feeling than waking up to a perfect up of tea and toast smothered in your favourite raspberry jam.
Love is in the air and wedding planning is on full go! I’m hoping to take you along with me every step of the way as there’s sure to be loads of DIY decorations and crafts to blog about. But for now, I wanted to share this book I made for Adam last year as all this lovey-dovey fun and creativity reminded me about it!
