Goodbye 2016 & Hello 2017

I didn't find it very difficult to say goodbye to 2016 and I know I wouldn't have been the only one feeling this way because let's be honest, it was a pretty rough year! I won't dwell on the negatives as I would much rather look back on the things that made me happy, what I've achieved and be grateful about the fact that 2016 wasn't all bad.. So let's get started!

It's Time For A Catch Up


Have you missed me? And yes it really has been a long time since I posted on here or done anything blogging related. Honestly we would be here all day if I went into every little detail about why this has come to happen so I've decided not to do that this time.

  • I'm not going to apologise.
  • I'm not going to call myself a terrible blogger.
  • I'm not going to wallow in self-pity and quit blogging for good.

So instead of doing any of that nonsense, I'll finish my cup of tea before it gets cold *tick* and let you in on what I've been up to while I've been away. Thank god October was an interesting month for me otherwise I would have nothing to write about for this post haha!

My Lush Skincare Collection

It's been way too long since I spoke about Lush which means it's probably about time I updated you on the products I've been using - specifically skincare. I rave about their bath bombs and bubble bars a lot (as you do, they are pretty amazing after all) which won't be changing any time soon but I do feel like their skincare gets overlooked which is why I'm going to shine a light on the four products my face has been loving!

Thoughts I Have While Tidying Up

thoughts while tidying up

Afters weeks of trying to avoid the massive pit I call my bedroom I finally decided it was time to do a massive clean out and although I'm glad it's over and done with, it was not an easy task. It takes me about an hour just to get myself motivated to tidy and even then I end up getting distract in some way i.e. lay in bed and scroll through social media. A lot of thoughts were going through my mind while I was slowly making progress round my room and I've listed a few of them below for your amusement!

Five Signs That Your Cat Loves You

The subtle ways that cats communicate with us are admittedly weird at times. Okay yeah they sleep a lot and like being waited on hand and foot like royalty but you should never underestimate how much they need you; you're their human! Don't believe me? Well here are five signs that show your cat loves you more than you know!


feeling uninspired

The one funny thing to come out of me having no inspiration over the past few months is that I came to realise I used to have ideas. Not just ideas, good ideas. I was actually creative - and that's one thing I never thought I would say! Whenever I spoke to someone about creativity my normal response was either "I wish I was more creative" or "My imagination is close to non-existent" and by thinking like this I was restricting myself without even realising. I had already told myself I couldn't do it so of course I wasn't going to bother trying as I had written myself off from doing anything remotely original. But hey we all make mistakes right?
