First blog post: starting fresh

Hello Everybody!

I have been blogging since the beginning of 2015. It’s nearly 2017, so that’s nearly 2 whole years I’ve spent rambling on the internet. I didn’t always have this blog though, no, this is my new blog that I have decided to start (quite late at night… I should be sleeping for school tomorrow) simply because I felt like a change. After a while, I found that I wasn’t really enjoying myself and blogging felt more like a chore than a hobby that I love to do. I feel like a change of scenery will cure this, so I’ve decided to throw caution into the wind and set sail on a new blogging adventure over the great ocean we call the internet.

Kinder Bueno Cupcakes

Who doesn’t love a cupcake and a cuppa in the evening, while watching your fave show on the telly? I love baking and Netflix have added all seasons of The Great British Bake Off so to say I’m living my best life would be an understatement. I have been absolutely addicted to it recently and it has really given me the ‘baking bug’. Sooooo, I’ve decided that I’m gonna start a wee recipe book (something I can give to my kiddies) and bake far more often! Continue reading “Kinder Bueno Cupcakes”

Out in the Rain… Again

It seems that I can’t go for a walk without the heavens opening up and it bucketing down rain on me, but if that’s the path that was chosen for me, so be it.

A bit of rain never did anyone any harm (I think) so walking about in it is probs the least of my worries. I won’t lie though, it’d be nice to go for a walk in the sunshine for once… just a suggestion?

The Saharan Palette

This is my second time sitting down to write this post… let’s hope this one actually goes somewhere.

Now, in no way, shape or form do I claim to know a damn thing about makeup. I’m actually 100% sure that if a makeup artist sat down to watch me do my makeup, I’d give them an aneurism. BUUUUT, I can appreciate a good product when I use one, and this palette is no exception.

Stuck in a Rut

Lately I’ve been stuck in a bit of a rut. I feel like my life is going absolutely no where and I wake up every single day to do the same damn thing. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a creature of habit, and I love having an organised routine, but if you’ve ever seen the Truman Show, then you’ll know what I mean when I say that I feel… stuck.

Lush Haul

I love a good bath, quite frankly, I don’t really get people who don’t. They’re warm, relaxing and can do wondrous things for your skin, so obvs Lush is one of my fave places in the world to spend my money. I received LOADS of bath bombs for Christmas but considering I use a bath bomb every bloody time I run a bath, I only had two left before I made a huge (some might find it small- it’s huge for me) order from Lush.

Book Review

“As Penny starts the school year she’s ready to face the world- alone. Noah has gone off the radar after ending his world tour early and no one, including Penny, knows where he is. So when she accepts Megan’s invitation to visit her performing arts school it seems like an opportunity to make new friends.

Helping everyone else seems to be the right remedy- Elliot needs her friendship more than ever, and she meets Posey- struggling with stage fright and in need of support. But is charming Scottish boy Callum the right kind of distraction? And can Penny truly move on when Noah’s shadow seems to haunt her round every corner?” Continue reading “Book Review”
