I really enjoyed publishing new content on my blog every other day during December, more so than I thought I would. I had so much amazing feedback (you guys are the loveliest) and my pageviews rocketed, yay! So it’s inspired me to keep it up and even write the posts that people always ask about: my hair & my Instagram. Even with over 30,000 followers on my Instagram, I somehow still feel like I’m not in a position to be dolling out tips about it. I know it’s pretty baffling, so I need a little nudge to just write about it!
I’ve got this stigma in my head that it’s weird to buy yourself flowers (a little like the fear of dining alone or going to the cinema on your own) but it’s one of the things I never do that I wish I did! I used to tell myself I wasn’t bothered about flowers but whenever I have received them, I’ve secretly loved them, and they add such a pretty, delicate vibe to a room. A small bouquet of roses can often cost as little as £4 so I’m definitely going to pick up a bunch every now and then.
Rotate My Makeup
I am awful at frivolously spending my money on things I probably could do without. Makeup being the main culprit. So I’m going to try really hard this year to use up the beauty products I already own and love, before I run off into Space NK chucking my notes at all the pretty things. One product I especially want to fall back in love with are the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushes, I own the beautiful little palette and a solo shade in Dim Infusion, which I adored before new products sent them to the back of my collection.
I think the key to making things easy for yourself, is organisation. I’m a serial putter-offer (definitely a word..), and I’m almost always late for everything (blame it on the winged liner she says). But then ticking things off of my to-do list makes me far too happy than I care to admit, so I need to find a balance. I own a gorgeous floral agenda from Ban.Do and so far I’ve become a bit of a planner freak keeping it up to date, and making it pretty with cute stickers. I also love the Rifle Paper products, and have my eye on their pretty desktop notepads, these two here and here in particular.
2016 was probably my ‘started from the bottom now we here’ kinda year for my cakes and cupcakes, (a piping bag and nozzle will work wonders) and I’ve miraculously started up my own little business for them. So this year alongside improving my cake skillzz (hello wedding cakes), I’d love to try my hand at baking numerous other sweet treats! I was gifted a few new cookery books for Christmas, including one from the Hummingbird Bakery, so I’m excited to give it a whirl. I find baking to be so relaxing and y’know, eating the end product is alright too I guess…
