    Beating Blogger Burnout

    Beating Blogger Burnout | Essential Twenty

    Okay, so you probably haven’t noticed but I took an accidental break from blogging for the past week. It’s not been a long break, but it’s been a necessary break. Blogger burnout is real and whilst I’ve never experienced it first hand, I’m pretty sure I can say that I sort of know how to beat it.

    Boxing Day 2017 Beauty Haul

    Boxing Day Haul 2017 | Essential Twenty

    Last year I put together a monster post all about what I’d picked up in the Boxing Day sales, and I’m doing it again this year! I don’t think I spent quite so much, but I did pick up some bits I want to share with you. In my 2018 goals, I mentioned that I am going cruelty free with my beauty products and not all of these are, but this is the last time I will be sharing non-CF purchases on my blog in a haul fashion.

Well this time, I’m writing about my new found inspiration, what I learnt and where I’m hoping my blog will go from here.

    42nd Street | Essential Twenty

    I’m so excited to be able to review 42nd Street today because I’ve wanted to see this show since it opened in the Spring. It’s been quite some time since I’ve seen what most people would consider to be a musical, and it was some much needed therapy for me.

    The Heartbreak Of Giving Up On Hobbies

    Giving Up On Hobbies | Essential Twenty

    Growing up, I was that child. You know, the one who was out every night after school at clubs. Ballet lessons, French lessons, recorder lessons, piano lessons, flute lessons, tap lessons, the school netball team, chess club (don’t laugh) and choir. Right up until I went to university, I still took ballet and contemporary dance lessons each week. But there’s something about getting older that makes you slowly dissolve your hobby list, and recently it’s been getting me down. Where are my hobbies now?
