What I've Been Reading

I've written about my love of reading a number of times, it's what I do to relax and take some time out so making one of my goals for this year to read more was really important to me. I have a to read pile which has been gradually increasing in numbers for the last year but now is the time to finally start making a dent in it. I set up a Good Reads account when I first bought my Kindle in 2016 but I never gave it much attention until this year.

My Most Used Products of 2018

The beginning of a new year always brings our fair share of most used products posts and I sit in wait for them, they're my favourite! If a beauty blogger has spent an entire year using the same product again and again, you know it's a good one. We are in the fortunate position that we get to try so many different products month in, month out that it can sometimes be a little hard to stick to the same products unless they really are firm favourites as another newer and (promised) better product comes along. 

I've tried numerous new products throughout the last year but there are always some that stick and so I give you a handful of products that haven't left my side in 2018.

Calendar Girls The Musical

Those of you with marvelous memory may remember I went to Leeds in August with Mayflower Theatre to see the dress rehearsal of Calendar Girls as it began its tour throughout the UK. I had such a wonderful time, adored the show and I couldn't wait for it to come to Southampton. 

It opened in Southampton last night and I went along to watch the show again in my home city. It's a story that I'm sure touches each of us in some way and the production is beautifully told with some laughs and all important singing.

Clarins Spring 2019

The new year doesn't just bring resolutions and new goals for the year ahead, it also brings an abundance of Spring beauty collections and the first one to fall into my hands is by one of my all time favourite brands, Clarins. January 6th saw the launch of the new collection featuring an all new eye shadow palette and a handful of other products to help you start the year flawlessly. 

I've been playing around with two of the products since before Christmas so I could give you my opinion as soon as the collection was released. 

A new year treat is definitely needed right?!

Hello 2019

There's a first for everything right?! Well this is the first time I've sat down and written out a new year, new me type post with goals for the year ahead. I'm not one for putting my resolutions and goals out publicly to be honest I'm not a resolution and goal type person anyway and tend to stick with what will be, will be but after a pretty crap 2018 I yearned for a new direction and change in my life.

December on Instagram

Just like that another year is over and I'm ready to share my final Instagram round up of 2018 and possibly my last. I'm undecided at the moment if I'm going to stop sharing them completely or if I'm just going to do them quarterly instead. It's a post I've always loved doing but I'm going to decide at the end of this month whether to continue them or not. 

We ended 2018 in a flurry of pigs in blankets, cosy pyjamas and Christmas films despite my sadness from the months prior and the thought of spending our first Christmas without treasured loved ones we did have a wonderful month full of oh so perfect festive moments. Here's a little round up...
