The Future Of Blogging

This post is going to be quite a frank, honest post on my thoughts on what blogging has become and where I see it heading in 2016. Blogging initially came about because people preferred the honesty and rawness that came with blogging to the glossy, highly edited features we were seeing everyday in magazines.

This whole thought process around the blogging world was sparked last Sunday when I was doing my usual routine of sitting in bed, waiting for the other half to wake up watching YouTube videos. Two particularly struck a chord with me. I won’t name them but they are bloggers that I can honestly say were the ones that got me into blogging and I’ve always loved their content, until recently.

Easy Like Sunday Morning

The saying a Sunday well spent brings a week of content rings true. I always feel that if I’ve spent my Sundays wisely, relaxing and preparing for the week, I transition into Monday much smoother. Sometimes I also think it’s nice to just have a chilled out, relaxed day where you take things at your own pace and have a bit of a pamper sesh, huh who needs fancy spas with fancy price tags!

10 Stationary Updates To Help Get More Organised

One of the things I’m trying to get better at this year is organisation. I’m not completely unorganised, but at times I can be a tad forgetful.

What better way to get more organised than with some new stationary?

It goes hand in hand that if you love makeup, more often than not you have a soft spot for stationary too, so here 10 stationary items that’ll help get you more organised.

25 Things I Learned In 2015

2015 was quite a year. There was ups and inevitably there were downs. They were times of extreme stress and some pretty awesome chilled times. All in all it may have pushed me at times to my edge, I learned a lot about myself as a person.

It’s definitely made me a stronger person and more determined with what I want and I’m hoping this year will teach me a few new things too. Soooo, I thought I’d share some things I learnt in 2015, 25 to be exact seeing as it was the year I turned the big TWO FIVE and all.

2016!!

Well hello there! You may have noticed I’ve been absent of late and to be quite honest there’s no one particular reason other than that life in general just got way too hectic and in the way. I’ve honestly missed blogging and didn’t want to delve back into it until I was happy with this little ole site. It’s getting there and I’m still tweaking the odd thing but I’m way happier with the appearance now.

The Video: June Birchbox

The June Birchbox has landed and a word of warning that I’m a bit of a Debby Downer in this video as I wasn’t a huge fan of this month’s box. Birchbox just doesn’t seem to be bringing it recently with the variety of products, particularly as each box for the last couple of months have contained something I’ve already received. Subscribers were able to choose the theme of their box and inside was a matching shoe bag, so onto the products…

June Lust List

It’s time for another Lust List and this one has actually come reasonably close to the beginning of the month. There always seems to be so many things I want, so much so that I now have a list saved in my phone of things to buy as and when I have any spare cash lying around (it’s also my birthday in 3 months so this list might come in handy then too!) Anyhoo onto THE list…

It’s quite a chatty one where I’m sharing my thoughts on all the empty products I’ve hoarded over the past couple of months.

It’s that time of month again where I bundle together the best of the bunch of products I’ve been loving throughout the month of May. There’s a mixture of products again for you, some coming from unexpected places, well at least for me anyway.
