It’s no surprise to anybody reading this that I love makeup, and am pretty damn addicted to buying makeup. But as I said in my new year’s resolutions, I need to start saving money and stop spending. This year I need to cut down my stash but since I’m too much of a hoarder, I’m not just going to give it away. I’m going to make it my aim to finish up as many products that I can, without buying new ones…with a few exceptions.
It’s officially 2017! Just two more days until most of us at back to work so I hope that you’re making the most of these last couple of days (and if you work in retails or the food business, I apologise). I had a pretty great 2016 after graduating, getting a job and really beginning to grow my blog which is really exciting, but I’m determined to make 2017 even better!
And talking about growing my blog, what sort of blogger would I be if I didn’t set a few targets for the year? This post is all about my targets in my personal and blogging life, which hopefully I can fulfil this year. Before anybody asks, this New Year’s Resolution sheet was in the most recent Box of Lame, and if you love it go support That Lame Company by picking up some of their other wonderful pieces.
What I Got For Christmas posts are my absolute favourite at this time of year (videos not so much, but I’m all for posts), and since I was a very lucky girl this year, I wanted to share what I got with you. This isn’t to brag or anything, I just know that people are interested.
I was going to wait until the new year to post this, as I am still waiting on seeing a couple of people who I know gifts are coming from, but as I’m doing a brief summary rather than the nitty gritty, I decided to leave them out. And if they’re exciting enough to talk about you’ll spot them on my twitter in a few days time. Disclaimer: This isn’t to brag. If you don’t want to read this then please leave.
Last week was my birthday which passed without too much to note. I worked, I ate Chinese food, watched GBBO and went to bed. I feel like I’m a proper adult now as I have a full time job, I’m in a long term relationship and I’m even starting to save up for the future (although let’s be honest, I want to blow it all on makeup). Adulting hard.
But turning 22 meant that I thought about years passed and whether or not I’m where I want to be. And 5 years ago I thought things were going to be very different.
I’ve been online every day since I was 11. That’s half of my life talking to strangers on the internet. In fact, one of my best friends from the age of 16-19 was a girl I met on twitter! Since starting blogging I’ve spoken to probably hundreds of bloggers, and it’s thanks to them that my blog is where it is today.
There are so many reasons why blogging friendships are so important and this is basically just a rambly post professing my love for some of my fave girls who I could not get through the day without having a chat to.
I’m not one to jump on the bandwagon with posts. I tend to write what I want to write about which tends to be beauty, and not really write about what’s going on in the news or social media. I don’t do clickbait. But after a comment that was made on Thursday about mental health and me wanting to put my two cents in with a bit of backlash, I wanted to explain myself.
#JustGoForAWalk was trending and I’m not going to put in anything about the girl who stated it originally (she can believe what she wants and I will let people have an opinion), I just want to tell you how I feel about it all.
