January Faves 2019 ๐Ÿ™Œ


Hey Guys!

 Happy new year! It's time for my first favourites of the year. So January is over and holy moly did it seem to go on forever. It's been a month of ups and downs from getting a new job to failing my driving test. Its been a fairly busy month with quite a lot going on so let's get get in to all the things I have loved in January 2019.


Fave Mem of The Month

Okay so first up is my 'Fave Mem of the Month' this is where I share my fave memory from the month. A while ago me and my friend Shannon bought my friend Emily tickets to see The Wombats and this had finally come round. So my favourite memory of the month was going to this concert with them. I love The wombats and we had an amazing time seeing them in Leeds, we also went to Turtle Bay for food and cocktails before which was lovely.



Pinnacle Products of The Month
 Next up in the monthly faves is the product section and this could be anything from makeup, to hair to skincare just all the products I have recently been reaching for. 

The first thing I have been loving this month is the Japanese Matcha Tea Face Mask from the Body Shop. My skin is always a little dry and dull at this time of year and this mask has been a lifesaver. After using it my skin felt so soft and refreshed. It's also amazing for blackheads.

Another product I have been loving this month is the Bubblegum Lip Scrub from Lush. I have most likely mentioned this product before here on my blog as I have loved this for a while and repurchased it many times but as with my skin my lips are also crazy dry at this time of year so again I have been reaching for this.

Finally the last product I wanted to mention is the Lush Magic Wand Bubble Bar. This is a Christmas product so may not be available anymore but it smells amazing. I love the snow fairy scent and it brings a little sparkle to my baths during the darker months. My skin also feels so smooth after I use this.


Music Faves

 As I went to a concert this month I have been listening to a lot of The Wombats. I have always loved their music but had been playing it a little more frequently in the build up to the concert. I have also been listening to Catfish & The Bottlemen's new song 'Longshot'.



 Fashion Faves

As for fashion this past month I have been loving both chunky cardigans and snake print. In particular this chunky cardigan from new look and this snake print shirt from Matalan.

 The Random Ones

 The only thing in the random part of my favourites is my 2019 Planner, I picked this up from TK Maxx and I LOVE it it makes organising things so much easier. It comes with the cutest little set of stickers.


That's everything I have to talk about for my January Faves. Hope you enjoyed having a little look at all the things I have been loving over the past month.

January Fresh Starts & New Beginnings ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ’™


Hey Guys!

January is well and truly here and along with this comes the annual January blues. I know this is pretty common for a lot of people and it is something that personally gets me every year, the come down from the Christmas period leaves me feeling deflated and unmotivated. However, January is the best time to be productive as it is a fresh start and a new beginning. So I thought for today's post I would share a little list of things that help me get through any down patches in January and keep motivation high.

1) Deep Clean

Something I find helps me feel motivated is having a clean and tidy environment around me. So I find having a big tidy / clean in January really helps put me in a productive mind set. Is also the perfect time to have a clear out and a fresh start for the new year.


2) Set Goals

Next I think setting some goals for the year is the perfect thing to do at the start of a new year as it gives you something to work towards and knowing you are working towards a goal will also help to keep you motivated. I think setting goals is also so fun as you can literally pick anything you want and it so exciting to think you will have done those things by the end of the year. 



3) Focus on What Makes You Happy
 I think this one is deffo not just for January but is so important all year round. DO WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY! Again this is just so vital for feeling happy and motivated. This could be anything but some examples for me is seeing my friends and family, blogging and booking days out or trips so I have things to look forward too.



4) Get Inspired

Another way of getting out of a 'rut' unmotivated mind set is to look for inspiration in people you look up too or enjoy. This could be anyone from a blogger you love or a fitness youtuber or even just watching people who are sharing positive vibes to help you cheer yourself up. I think this really helps to cheer you up and get you going again.



5) Plan your year

Finally the last thing on my list is planning. I love getting a new planner every year as this is just something I get very excited about. I love being organised and feel as though I am a million times more productive when I have my weeks and months planned. Its also a chance to be creative and make your planner pretty and personal to you. TK Maxx have some amazing planners and would totally recommend checking them out if you want to get one.



So that's all for my list of things I use to give myself a little kick up the butt when the downs of January start to get to me. Overall I do love January I think its a good starting point for you to just start smashing the goals which you have wanted to do for while but not really known when to start.  So I hope you enjoyed reading and that it may help anyone else who might find themselves feeling a little deflated in this month.

My Top Beauty Picks of 2018 ๐Ÿ’•


Hey Guys!

For today's post I thought I would share with you guys some of my favourite beauty products from 2018. I loved a lot of products last year some were new things other which have been my holy grails for a while. Nether the less here's my top beauty picks from 2018. 

FRESHLY BAKED LONDON MANGO TANNING MOUSSE

This tanning mousse is AMAZING! So much so that I did a whole post on it which you can find here. I have loved everything about the brand and the product for a while now it is the only tan I will now use. Trust me I have tried everything to St tropez, to Bondi Sands and I am always coming back to this little gem. It is scented so no more weird tan smell and it is just the best formula I have tried. It's full of good stuff for your skin and its vegan and cruelty free. If you haven't already tried one of the freshly baked London tanning mousse then I would really recommend it.


NYX EPIC INK LINER - BLACK

I used to swear by the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in trooper until I tried the Epic Ink liner by NYX. This was one of the recent discoveries I made last year and it is soooo good. If you love the Kat Von D liner you will love this it is exactly the same but like half the price! This has been my new go to liner and will most likely be for a long time. It is also cruelty free!



MUA PRO / BASE FULL COVERAGE CONCEALER 

Again this was a new one I discovered last year and I am so glad I did. This concealer is £2.50 I REPEAT £2.50! What the hell right? Not only is this concealer crazy affordable but it is stunning the coverage is great but it doesn't feel heavy on the skin and it is again cruelty free. I love this and this product is again another nee staple in my makeup bag. 



THE ORDINARY COVERAGE FOUNDATION

The next product I want to talk about is the ordinary coverage foundation. I have always been one of them people who simply just struggles to find the perfect foundation they love until I came across this little guy on beauty bay it had pretty good reviews, was again crazy affordable and was cruelty free so I thought I would give it a whirl and boy was I in for a shock. This foundation is honestly PERFECT. It is full coverage which I love as I'm a bit of an all or nothing type of gal when it comes to makeup but oh boy do I mean FULL coverage like your not seeing anything under this. It has such a lovely finish doesn't look too dry but also sits pretty well on my oily patches. The shade range is great and it doesn't crease or feel heavy on the skin, which is a miracle considering the coverage you get with this product. I love it .

BEAUTY BAY ORIGIN 42 COLOUR EYESHADOW PALETTE

I got this as a gift for my birthday from one of my best pals and WOW! This product blew my expectations out the park, I wanted it for a while as they did sell out quite a few times and I can completely understand why the quality of these eye shadows is insane! It is also £25 for 42 shades like are you kidding me? The shimmers are heavenly and the Origin palette is packed with warm tones which is perfect. This has hands down been what I  have been reaching for ever since I have had it and I know I have said this a million times but I love it so much. Again its cruelty free and vegan as well which is perfect.


KAT VON D EVERLASTING LIQUID LIPSTICKS

I love the liquid lipsticks by Kat Von D beauty I have quite a few in my collection and they are deffo an oldie but a goodie for me. I have loved them for years but in 2018 I especially loved the shades Ludwig and Plaith. The formula is great, they last really well and don't dry my lips out.


THE BODY SHOP CHAMOMILE CLEANSING BUTTER

This was again another new product I tried in 2018 after going in to The Body Shop looking for a new cleanser. The lovely lady recommended this and I love it! It gets all makeup off my face but is super gentle on the skin. 


That's all for my top products of last year, I hoped you enjoyed the read. I would love to know what products you discovered last year that you now love.

2019 GOALS! ✨


Hey Guys!

So it's officially 2019! I am so excited to see what the new year brings and I hope you all had an amazing 2018. For today's post I thought I would share with you my goals for the new year and the things I hope to achieve in 2019. 

1) Savings 

My first goal is pretty simple I spent most my savings last year on my driving lessons so this year I would like to start saving again to eventually be able to afford my own house and move out. I understand how expensive this is and that it will take time so I am in no major rush but I would just like to properly start saving for my future.

2) Health & Fitness Goals

I feel like this goal needs no explanation as I'm sure it will be on nearly everyone 2019 goal list but I always slack when it comes to the gym and being healthy when the end of the year comes around so I would love to jump back in to the gym and get back on track to achieve my fitness goals.

3) Blogging

I have also been neglecting my blog quite a bit and so this year I would really love to put a lot more time and effort in to it and hopefully be blogging more consistently all year round. I also need to be a little more active on my socials and would love to just generally grow my blog in 2019.
4) Family & Friends 

This goal is a super important one for me as I get so caught up with daily life that sometimes I find it hard to make time to see my loved ones as much as I would like. So in 2019 I would really love to focus on the relationships I have in my life and ensure they all get the time they deserve.
5) Work Work Work
My next goal is completely work related I have bounced around a few jobs now and I am at a point where I just want to find a job that really works for me that I can grow and progress in. Therefore I would love to start a new job in 2019 which I can settle in to and hopefully develop a career out of.
6) Self Care 

Next up is self care, by this I mean that I would like to make a little more effort with my appearance in 2019. Just little things like getting my nails done and maintaining my eyebrows make me feel so much better about myself so doing that is something I want to try and keep up with. I also want to continue to experiment with makeup and hopefully get a lot better at it.
7) Things I Want To Buy

Finally my last goal for the new year is to hopefully buy a car. I have been working so hard on my driving in 2018 and I have my test a the end of this month so I would love to be able to get a car. I have also been wanting a tattoo for the longest time so I would love to get this in the new year as well. 

So that's all my goals for 2019 I hope you enjoyed reading about them, I would love to know if you guys have set any goals for the new year so please let me know if you have. I hope 2019 brings many amazing things.

My 2018 - A Look Back on Last Year ๐ŸŽ‰


Hey Guys!
So another year has passed and 2019 is 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 2018 with you, I did this last year and I still love looking back on this post now so I thought I would do it again this year. 2018 wasn't the best year I've ever had if I'm honest and I'm pretty happy to see the end of it however I did have some amazing times as well as the crappy ones so I thought now would be the perfect time to look back on them and share them on here. 

I celebrated Chinese New Year for the first time with my friends and had the most amazing time. 



We made Pancakes on Pancake day and they actually turned out pretty good. 

I went on a ton of nights out with great people.


I went on holiday with my Family and boyfriend to Mallorca and again had a lovely time.


We actually had some sun in the UK for once so this meant for some really fun summer days.


I headed back to Leeds Festival for my third year and got to see some of my favourite bands.  


Halloween was great as always! We headed to pick pumpkins and I had a Halloween games night over at my house. 


I had my 21st Birthday which was so much fun, Then along came December. In December I had a brilliant Christmas, went to Christmas markets and to watch one of my best friends Emilys show with my other closest pals which was amazing and it got us feeling so festive and we were soooo proud of her for doing it. 


Overall I have some great memories from 2018 and even though it may not have been the best year I am so happy with how its ending. I started my driving lessons and completed a lot of the goals I had for last year. I am looking forward to what 2019 will bring and hope for it to be a really great year.
