2018 Goals!




Hey Guys!

So 2018 is in full swing and I'm actually probably a little late with this post, However, I've set myself a bunch of goals for this year and I thought I would share them with you guys.  

 1) Get Saving!

So my first goal for 2018 is to open up a savings account and put some of my wage in every month to generate some savings. I want to save for quite a few things including learning to drive, getting a car and potentially moving out. I have had savings before but I have never properly stuck to it. 

2) Get on Top of My Fitness Goals

This is such a clichรฉ I know but after starting to get in to the gym and my overall health in 2017 I really want to get back at the gym and really focus on getting healthy and achieving my body goals this year. I have already been hitting the gym and looking at what I'm eating and I feel so much better for it already. 

3) Learn to Drive 

This is something I have wanted to do for so long now but I've just been putting it off. So this year I really just want to bite the bullet and book some lessons and hopefully learn to drive by the end of the year. 

4) Settle in a job 

This one is a difficult one for me as I still have no idea what job I currently want to do. However I would love to find a job I love this year or even just progress in the job I have now. Overall for this goal I just want to settle in a job or make a plan for my future career so I feel a lot more stable in my career by the end of the year.

5) Be Happy

I know this one sounds so silly as of course everyone wants to be happy. I just really want to focus on what makes me happy and do more of that this year. 

6) Go Cruelty Free?

So this one is something I have been thinking of for a while now and I have decided that I am going to really make an effort to only buy products which are cruelty free. I will use up any products I already have and I am not going to throw anything a way as a lot of them were gifts and I don't want to be wasteful but starting from this year I am going to make an active effort to make sure I only buy cruelty free products. 

So that's it for my 2018 goals, I would love to know if you lovelies have set any goals to smash this year so please do share them if you have.

My 2017- A Look Back At Last Year



Hey Guys!

So another year has passed and 2018 is well and truly here! I thought for today's post I would have a little look back on the past year and share some of my highlights from 2017 with you, I thought this might be something people will enjoy reading but also an amazing post for me to have to look back on. Last year was a year of up and downs for me I had some really crappy times but also made some of the best memories of my life so far, so overall I have pretty mixed opinions of 2017.

So the first thing that happened in 2017 was that I joined the gym. I was so happy with my decision to do this and last year was the first year in my life where I started to get in to fitness and improving my overall health. 

 
















Then in April 2017 I actually started my blog. I had a blog previously but never took it too seriously and lost interest; however, 2017 was the year I bit the bullet bought my domain name and created Life With Bee. I still love blogging so much and hope that I can continue to grow and improve my blog in 2018 as well.



Next up I flew out to Tenerife with some of my pals and had the most amazing time. It was so nice to get away from work and the general stress of everyday life and have a little break in the sun. 



















2017 was actually a year when I realized that actually it’s ok not to be ok and I went through what was one of the hardest times for me in my life so far. I just had an overwhelming time with my emotions and I was just so unhappy for quite a while. I think it was the come down from having such an amazing time on holiday that actually made me realize how unhappy I was with work and just the way my life was at the moment, I couldn't shake the feeling that I hadn't done enough of the things I wanted to do when I left school and just felt like I had messed up and wasn't really good enough. I didn't know who to turn to with the way I was feeling as I didn't want to burden any of my friends so I mainly turned to both my amazing boyfriend and Mum. I don't know how I would have coped this year without them both. I am in a much better place now and I believe I may have just gone through a period where I just wasn't in the best place mentally. However I feel so much better now and although I still have down days I am in such a better place now.

I then slipped in to my wellies and headed to 
Leeds Festival. This once again was such an amazing experience and I was so happy I went as it was something I really wanted to do in 2017 but also I saw some really great bands play.  


I then went away to Majorca with my boyfriend and his family, we had such a lovely time and I really enjoyed this so much. 

























Then in the run up to Halloween I got to do some of the things I have always wanted to do, I went to pick my own pumpkin at the pumpkin festival at a local farm and spent a day at Alton Towers for their Scarefest event. I love Halloween so much so it was so good to do so many themed days out. I then had a Halloween party at my house which was just fab and once again I had a smashing time. 

 






Another really sad moment for me in 2017 was we actually sadly lost our family dog. He was 15 years old so he was pretty old as far as doggo's go but he got really sick and unfortunately we had to get him put to sleep. This was super sad as we had had Sandy since I was 5 years old and he was a tiny puppy so losing him took quite a hit on me and my family. 




Next up I had a really lovely time as me and my family, my boyfriend and my brother’s friend spent the weekend away down in Lincoln to see an Airshow. 



Then along came my Birthday which I honestly had such an amazing night as I went out and had some drinks in Leeds with so many awesome people. I actually made quite a few new friends this year which is always great. 



Finally Christmas, Boxing Day and New years were here which again was an amazing time considering I actually wasn't feeling too great for the most of it this year as I got sick but I still managed to have some hella good times. 



So that’s all the main things that happened in my 2017. I hope you enjoyed reading about the ups and downs of my year and I would love to know how 2017 was for you.

What I Got For Christmas 2017!


Hey Guys!

I hope you all had the most amazing Christmas and happy new year! Now to kick off 2018 I thought I would share with you some of the things I got for Christmas. I was actually super lucky and I am so grateful for everything I received. I got mainly money so I can't really show you that I also got a few more things but I didn't want this post to be too long so I picked out some of the bits I received to show you. 


  The first thing I got was the Pink Sugar Plum shampoo and conditioner by OGX. I believe these are limited edition but they smell amazing.


 Next up I was super lucky and I received the Hoola Light bronzer I have the original one but I am hella pale so I feel like this will work wonders for me. I also got the Violet Voss Holy Grail palette and let me just say there will be a review coming your way very soon.

 I was super lucky and I also received these items so I got a snow fairy shower gel from my boyfriend who gets me one every year as he knows how much I love this stuff, this amazing body butter from Jack wills from one of my fave girls and as one of my gifts from my nan I got this perfume from Avon.
 

I then got a few bits from Yankee Candle which once again I love. 

So that's it for my What I got For Christmas 2017 post, I am super grateful for everything I received both the things in this post and the other gifts I got. I hope you all enjoyed reading!

For today's post I am simply going to share with you guys what I have got up to today on Christmas Eve 2017 and what I have planned for the rest of the evening. I'll also chat with you guys about my Christmas Eve traditions.  

I have had the most lovely day, I have been out for a meal with my amazing boyfriend and his incredible family. Which was so nice the food was great and the company was of course wonderful.

I have then come home to see my family as we have a few traditions on Christmas Eve me and my mum get matching Christmas jammies and me my mum, dad and brother all sit down together with a load of snacks and watch some Christmas movies. I also took my doggo for a little walk today. I'll be spending the rest of my evening pigging out on snacks, in my new Christmas Pj's watching Christmas movies probably with a hot chocolate. Here's a snap of me and mum in our matching Christmas Pj's and a few other snaps from the day.

For todays post I was actually inspired by the lovely girlenters.wordpress.com, She did an amazing post were she found some Christmas snaps from over the years and shared them in a blog post. You can find her post here. I just fell in love with this idea as I thought it was so cute and went on a little hunt for some festive pics of myself over the years. After digging through many boxes with my mum and taking a little trip down memory lane I found these: 









Hope you enjoyed having a little look at a few festive snaps from throughout the years with me  and I hope you have the most amazng Christmas and New Year.
