You may (or may not) have noticed that I’ve been a little quiet on here for a few weeks. March was a whirlwind of a month for me, and I really wanted to take a few steps back to take a breather so that April could see better days.
I don’t know about you, but winding down is an important part of my day (unless I want to remain a miserable cow). There’s no chance of me getting a good’s night sleep if I have a lot on my mind, and don’t feel relaxed. Or if Amelie is in the mood for a sleepover.
Finally!! After 8 months of friendship, we got round to meeting our online friends – Paige, Rob and Freddie. You no longer have to listen (or read) about how much I want to meet them. But, you do have to read about what is was like meeting them. Travelling back to Bristol from Norfolk consisted of a lot of ‘I wish we lived closer’ texts, and I really do wish we did!
Eyebrows, we have come a loooong way. I have hunted down a few old (and dreadful) photos over a period of 5 years and put them together to share with you my ‘eyebrow journey’. Looking back at these photos, I am so so embarrassed that I once left the house with brows that looked so bad! Apparently eyebrows are a lot more important than I had originally thought.
It all started with the wall above Amelie’s changing unit starting to look a little bare, and so I scrolled through Pinterest for some inspiration. Here, I found tons of ‘shelfies’ which inspired me to create my own, and decorate the ever so naked wall above the changing unit.
Every year I set myself the same (unrealistic) goals – get fit, drink more water, and get better at saving. They’ve always been so generic, and not so specific. For 2018, I want to set myself a few specific goals that I think will make a happier, healthier me!
Cue the super soppy post as I ramble on about this eventful year. I started this year off by dragging myself around the Cotswolds with what I thought was the world’s worst hangover. Wrong. It wasn’t until May 11th 2017 that I had an ‘oh shit!’ moment and realised that morning sickness justified my
For me, Orange Chocolate tastes like Christmas. This is mainly down to the number of Terry’s Chocolate Orange’s I devour every year. What’s a stocking without one, really? So, I’ve put together a short and easy recipe on how I achieved these delicious brownies (it takes roughly 1 hour inc. prep and cooking time, and can cut into 9 square brownies).
I hope you’ve got a cup of tea to hand because this is a long one…
Pregnancy, weather changes, not enough water. You name it – it’s probably affected my skin. I’ve tried near enough every skincare product on the shelves in Boots, and it took me a good few years to find products that actually work. Before I ramble on, I am aware that everyone has different skin types and so this routine may not fit your skin type. For reference, my skin is ‘dehydrated’ and ‘combination’; making it oily in some areas (generally my forehead) and dry in other areas (generally around my nose and chin).
