Sweater Weather Tag

Hello you lovely lot!



Today I wanted to do something Christmasy so felt that this tag would be a good idea as it will help us to get to know each other a little bit more ...


1. Favourite candle scent? My favourite is sweat pea but in the winter there is a lovely scent my auntie bought me last year called Frankincense which is so lovely! 

2. Coffee, tea, or hot chocolate? I don't like hot drinks but if I had to choose I would go for a home made hot coco - my grandma makes the best ones
3. What’s the best thing you have ever been given at Christmas? When I was around 4 or 5 we had Christmas at my grandparents and me and my sister were given a pink dolls house and it was the bestest thing ever
4. Which makeup trend do you prefer: dark lips or winged eyeliner? I love dark lips but hate that it makes me look unwell I think I need to keep searching for the right colour! 
5. Best fragrance for Christmas? I think my yearly fragrance which is Ricci Ricci by Nina Ricci or Jo Malone Peony and blush suede (it is such a luxury but so bloody lovely)
6. Favourite Christmas food? The roast potatoes and chocolate log (am I allowed to say two things?)


7. What is autumn weather like where you live? Fab, it is crisp and sometimes icy but I love it because the leaves turn from green to yellow and then you get to spend more quality time with family and it's just a lovely time of the year
8. Most worn sweater? One from a charity shop which is maroon and is from Fruit of the Loom - it is so comfortable and cosy and cost so little
9. Must-have nail polish this fall? A light pink which is opaque enough that you can't see the lunula on your nail bed
10. Football games or jumping in leaf piles? I think both would be fun but I'll chose jumping in leaf piles 
11. Skinny jeans or leggings? Mom jeans?
12. Combat boots or Uggs? Converse?
13. Is pumpkin spice worth the hype? I don't know but I love cinnamon 
14. Favourite Christmas film? This is a horrible question! But I of course love Elf and I also would say Serendipity 
15. What song really gets you into the Christmas spirit? I would say Santa Baby by Ariana Grande or All I want for Christmas is you by Maria Carey 



Love you all heaps

Sunshine is the best shine.

hello you lovely lot! Today I wanted to share a bit of Summer inspiration and have a little chin wag, if that's alright with you? ;) Basically this past year I've been in this horrible nasty on going slog of silly little things called GCSEs. (which I am sure you are all aware of, if you aren't they are end of secondary school exams, ergh right!) Anyways with that being said I'm back, I've found my mojo and want to spend this Summer writing and pressing publish on blog posts. Therefore, right now as a little teaser (just kidding, I have a guilty pleasure with Pintrest * and you NEED this app in your life) I shall share a few of my ideas and inspiration for the coming months, hope you enjoy!

If you really want to get creative with your cookie cutter creations, use letters to spell your guests' names out of melon or watermelon to use as drink markers and place holders.:
Let your hair down this summer and enjoy time outdoors. It's the prefect way to spend time with friends and get fit while having fun.:

Honestly love this movie Audrey Hepburn Breakfast at tiffanys:

can't wait for 'roadtrips' this summer!:

Lots of loves and hugs

How to de~stress? (Back to Work)

Being a part of society as it lies today, we will all have gone/are going through our own stresses, some bigger than others and some smaller. Today I wanted to share a few things we can do to reduce our burdens and appreciate our lives rather than wish it all away! 

 

Tip No.1 ~

Firstly remember you are never as alone as you may think. It can be as small as texting family/friend and asking if they want to meet up, or you could go on a walk and say hello to people you pass - humans need human contact so no matter what you decide to do. Spending time with people you love and trust to share your burdens can really help!


Tip No.2 ~

I would also recommend reduce your use of social media for a day or even a week just limit it down to an hour a day - trust me you will notice just how much time you have for work, social activities and happiness! Please don't take what I say to the extreme as this can have the opposite effect - social media is now an embedded part of our lives so by not being included we are essentially out on a limb. So find your personal balance and stick to your decision. Focus on you!


Tip No.3 ~

Read, knit, crochet, sew, watch T.V, play a board game, go on a run, go for a swim, climb a mountain. Do something/ Plan something to look forward to that will benefit you for the better. For example if you are passionate about kickboxing or football call up a friend and go and have fun ~ you are more likely to remember the fun you had trying out something new than the times you spent stressing out about something that won't matter in 24 hours!

My last but in my opinion the most important one is to inhale some oxygen and let it all out and put your head down and do the work you have to do  - the quicker it's done the freer you become


All my love
