Recap of the Year 2015

Recap of the Year 2015
Wednesday, 30 December 2015
Read post
As some of you may remember, this time last year I did a post entitled 'Recap of the Year 2014' and I really enjoyed writing it as a reminder to myself of all the wonderful things I had experienced that year. It's also been really nice to look back on those memories on tough days so I have decided I will do the same for the year 2015. Can you believe that 2016 is just around the corner?!

The festive season is upon us and for many of us this is a time of happiness and joy. However, for some this is a time filled with sadness and loneliness. 

The Christmas season may have you feeling stressed, alone or helpless but I want you to know you  don't need to be any of those things. 

If you feel like you need help this Christmas - whether it be you are ready to make a change, you need help or you just need to talk - please pick up the phone. Below you will find a list of numbers and websites for your use. 

Remember, you are not alone.

Since about May/June time, I have been quite productive in the blogging process.  Dare I say I upped my game?! I went from posting to no particular schedule (what I want, when I want, very inconsistently) to posting to quite a strict schedule (Once a week, every Saturday which then progressed to twice a week, Wednesdays and Saturdays. Each post 7am sharp.). This was great, I felt super accomplished and proud and I felt myself getting more recognition and opportunities because of this. Now this is where Bloggers Block comes in. Obviously, I mean what better timing right?

Think Before You Speak - Weight

Think Before You Speak - Weight
Wednesday, 18 November 2015
Read post
Now as a child, growing up, I was always taught to think before I speak. Now this may seem like an obvious thing to be taught, along with 'If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all' I mean these are things I'm currently teaching my 7 year old brother, but now at the age of 20 (very nearly 21) I am finding more and more adults that in fact don't think before they speak and they say things even when they have nothing nice to say.

This may seem like a strange topic for a blog post so far but the thing that forces me to write this is that numerous times (uncountable in fact) this week I have had things said to me that have made me feel down right upset and in all honest truth, I don't think they were once meant as an insult. Just someone merely not thinking before they spoke.

Last week was my little brothers half term so we had to think of a few ideas to keep him occupied. I absolutely love baking but with a little one (he's actually 7, haha) baking from scratch isn't the easiest!

However, I did buy a few bake in a box type things (they were 3 for 2 in Tesco) so we had fun making some chocolate buns and also some plain/vanilla buns! Each of these sets only made 6 buns each which is why we made both. The best thing was everything (bar eggs and butter) was included in the set from the cake mixture itself right to the sprinkles on top!

Here's some pictures from our lovely baking day!

As you may or may not remember from this post I mentioned that I was in the process of looking for a little giveaway prize to say thank you to celebrate the (at the time) 100 followers I had on Bloglovin'. Now this was back at the beginning of August and since then I have gone up to 177 Bloglovin' followers and I couldn't be more thankful! To say thank you properly I have finally got off my bum and bought a giveaway prize to giveaway to one of you! Now it's not much, but it's something just to show my appreciation and hopefully in the future I'll be able to give away something a bit bigger and/or to more than one of you.

So, I'll move on to the prizes. I'll say now that these prizes are aimed more at my female audience (sorry to any males out there - I can look at doing a male one in the future if wanted?) and that I had the idea of autumn/winter cosy night in, in mind. Hopefully this reflects in the items I choose and you all like them.

I'm very sorry but for shipping purposes this giveaway is only open to the UK. 
In the future I will be sure to do one that is worldwide!

So a week or two ago (depending on when I set this post live) I decided to take the plunge and buy myself a domain. This was after a little conversation with the lovely Alex from Champagne & Lemonade where she asked me (in a very nice/thoughtful way may I add) if I had ever considered getting myself a domain. Now I had considered it previously (around the time of my new blog design) but the thought of it petrified me (difficulty/commitment) so I always put it off. However, when Alex said this to me, I had a lightbulb moment and thought that if it was being commented on I must really pull my finger out and sort it! Within about 5 hours I officially had a brand new domain!

In the amazing Hull Bloggers Meet goodie bags we were all lucky enough to receive a selection of Lab2 Beauty makeup brushes. I was so excited about this as I have never actually tried Lab2 Beauty before and I was on the lookout for some new brushes for everyday use! The sets I received were the Strokes of Genius Brush Kit, On a Powder Trip Brush and The Triple Threat Multi-Purpose Brush.

Today I thought I would give you a first impressions/review type post as I always like to read these before I buy a product myself so I'm hoping it may be helpful for some of you out there. The reason this will be more of a first impressions than a full review is because I have only used these a couple of times so far and I am yet to wash them.

The A - Z of Me

The A - Z of Me
Wednesday, 7 October 2015
Read post
When browsing through my Bloglovin feed this week I came across a post from the lovely Kathryn  which was entitled 'The A - Z of Me'. Upon reading it I instantly loved the idea of thinking of a fact for each letter of the alphabet which describes you. As a child I always used to play a very similar game where we would choose a topic and then have to name a thing for that topic for each letter of the alphabet. For example if the category was Animals it would go a bit like... Ant, Bee, Cat, Dog, Elephant.. etc! I think this is why I loved the idea so much.

Nevertheless, I told Kat how much I loved the idea and she said I was more than welcome to do my own version! So here we have it. The A - Z of Me.

When it comes to diaries and planners I am always a bit sceptical of spending a lot of money as, most of the time, the ones available in shops aren't 100% what I'm looking for. There is always something I would like to change about them if I had the chance! With Personal Planner, this is not the case and this is pretty much how the company was founded!

Prior to this event we were all kindly contacted by Holly from Rock On Ruby and she told us that we could order any item on the site at a exclusive discount and we would receive our chosen product(s) at the event.

After much consideration I finally decided on a personalised makeup bag as I felt this would last me a really long time and could technically be used for a number of things! I finally decided on the black, medium sized makeup bag (£14) with the slogan 'Everything you want is on the other side of fear' (If you have read this post, you will know how much that quote means to me) and I could not be happier with the finished product!

Hull Bloggers - Al Porto

Hull Bloggers - Al Porto
Tuesday, 1 September 2015
Read post
As you may or may not have heard/ seen quite a few of us raving about, there was an event on, on Sunday 30th August for a group of Hull Bloggers at Al Porto, Hull. This was an amazing event organised and held by three lovely bloggers Alex, Jenny & Kat and all their hard work really paid off! I would just like to take this opportunity to say a huge THANK YOU to those 3 ladies and also to Al Porto themselves as well as all the brands involved in our day. Prior to the event I hadn't met a single person but everyone made me feel so welcome!

So our day started with cocktails, introductions and chats/demonstrations with a few brands that where there. The brands present where Lush, Viridian & Weleda and we were all able to have a chat about the brands and the products they have on offer. While all this was going on, the lovely staff at Al Porto were circulating with some delicious food! As the day went on there were more introductions, more food and a raffle!

We were all lucky enough to receive not one, not two, but THREE(!!!) incredible goodie bags from the organisers with some awesome brands inside as well as another 3 goodie bags from the brands that were there on the day! The huge raffle included yet more amazing products so all in all I came out with 7 jam packed bags full of fantastic treats! Not only was that really nice for us but all the money we raised from the raffle (which was over £200) went to The Eve Appeal who help fight gynaecological cancers!

Now I just know this is going to be the first of many #HBAlPorto posts as there is so many amazing brands and products I would love to write about so I thought I would kick it all off with some pictures from the day and also tell you exactly which of us bloggers attended so you can go check them and their Al Porto posts out too! It's going to get quite photo heavy but I hope you enjoy. <3

Monday Motivation - Courage.

Monday Motivation - Courage.
Monday, 31 August 2015
Read post
Courage (noun)
Definition
- the ability to do something that frightens one; bravery.
- strength in the face of pain or grief.

As an anxiety sufferer one thing I really struggle with is courage. Being brave enough to do the things I really want to do. Now this can include things like trying new foods, going new places and meeting new people but isn't just limited to new experiences. Plenty of people for example, may have had to do things like some public speaking but still get fearful when they need to do it again. They can feel like they don't have the courage to go through with it.

As you may or may not know I have actually just got back from a little 3 day trip to Bristol. The trip was originally just to visit some family members that live down there but we decided that to break the trip up a little bit we would do a couple of touristy things! (Please be warned we did visit Bristol Zoo and there are some photos of that - If you disagree with Zoos etc I am really sorry and I promise this will be my only post on this unless requested otherwise!)

So on our first day of the trip we stopped by the shopping mall called 'Cribbs Causeway' to have a little look as we were too early to check into our hotel and we had been in the car for about 3 and a half hours so definitely needed to stretch our legs! We only had a little walk because I dislocated my knee 10 weeks ago and am still suffering from all sorts of problems with it! But! It was here that we discovered the Shaun In The City trial!


We only managed to see 6 Shaun's while we were down there and 2 I didn't managed to get a photo of but it was really good fun and if we had have had more time and I didn't have a poorly leg we would have definitely gone to find as many as possible!

Huge thank you to Lulu - I know if she hadn't have nominated me first I would definitely have been nominating her!

Now I did a bit of research into The Starlight Blogger Award as I had never heard of it before (I'm still new to all of this! haha) and I found out it was created by a blogger called YesterdayAfter back in June to promote and honour those individuals who are inspiring, creative bloggers. Her exact reasonings were "I want to celebrate the creative bloggers who have truly inspired me and others through their beautiful and original content, imagery, art, abilities, and wonderful personalities. I wanted to create this Award as token of love and appreciation and encouragement so please spread the love and pass it to other deserved Bloggers!" I think this is a truly amazing way to share the love in the blogging community and help to support and build each other up! I also just want to mention - I have noticed the actual award image has been changed - so I will insert both images as not to offend anyone and then if my nominations decide to write a post they can choose which ever image they prefer! 


Now I shall stop babbling and get on with the award!

Seen as today is 1st August I thought I'd do a little lifestyle post of the month of July! I thought the best way to illustrate this would be through Instagram pictures so here goes!

Before I jump into this post I would just like to say a massive Thank You to everyone that has been supporting my blog recently! The amount of views/comments/etc has been overwhelming and I truly find myself grinning from ear to ear every time I get a notification!
Now todays post is going to be something nice and simple. I was originally going to use this for a YouTube video and went even as far as filming it but it was apparent from the footage I would be much better writing it as a blog post! 
Speaking of YouTube I have got a video that has gone up this morning (Saturday 25th July) and I have one scheduled for next Saturday (1st August). I have had a brief break and I'm ready to spend my spare time getting back into it. 
Now less of the chitter chatter! I'm going to get right into the This or That tag! (Beauty Edition of course!)
