Halfway Point: Making way for Change

Hi Guys,

We're a little over half way though the year! Can you believe that it's almost over? I'm normally a glass half full kind of girl, but when it comes to time, I am always shocked. I talk about it too much: this is like how I would always write about the weather last year! 

That's not the only thing that's changed about me since last year, though. So much can happen in the space of six months. I didn't realise that I had as much strength in me as I've recently shown; I never knew that life could throw this much at me. Things have been, well, interesting but I know it's for a reason. See, at the beginning of 2017, me and my best friend set out to have our 'year of self discovery'. It was going to be amazing. We were to become new people by the end of it, which was obviously what we wanted. 

That failed after less than a month. It was after a collection of bad days that we both started beating ourselves up about. How was it that we weren't capable of having the perfect year? It seemed like a huge thing for us because it was something we really wanted to achieve. In the end we realised that it was the pressure to make it great that was really affecting us. You have bad days, you have bad weeks. You can even have bad months (trust me!) but that does not define you or your year. Taking everyday as it comes is something that we learnt to cherish and are now happy with making the most of.

We both changed our tone from the start of the year: but that's okay! Change can be feared and viewed as such a negative thing but in the end, it happens for a reason. I'm a huge believer in fate, so I understand that the struggles people face are for a reason. A change can bring all sorts of things into your life and can make such a positive impact so people need to start accepting it. I'm not saying to invite it with open arms, but if it comes, say hi, and just let it happen.

I am very happy to say, that that philosophy is the one I want to carry through. I only have half of the time left, however, I can make it count. My dream is that by January I can say how proud of myself I am. I would love to be able to recognise how far I've come and just admire that. Some people may say it's self centered. To those people, I have pity. If they are unable to see the wonders of self-belief and self-confidence without thinking that it is arrogance and rudeness, they need to reassess their opinions. But hey, that's just mine!

I want to know what my 2018 'thing' will be. There isn't soon until we find out, to be honest! Maybe it'll be the weather (yet again!), maybe it'll be good intros (I haven't forgotten!), maybe it'll be using less brackets (this is a bit ironic), or maybe it'll be something completely different. Either way, I'm not scared of the change and you shouldn't be either!

Thanks for Reading

My Christmas Gift Guide!!

Hi Guys,

Welcome to the first of my Christmas posts! I'm already ridiculously excited and there is still 29 days to go! Today I'm going to be giving my gift suggestions for anyone who needs help with their gift giving. Obviously, Christmas isn't all about the presents but it's always nice to give someone a gift that you know they will love! That was a super long intro so lets get into the actual post!

£5 or less...

1) Sleek Mini Matte Me 4 set: I have this on my list because this set looks amazing! For anyone who doesn't know, liquid lipsticks are meant to be the next 'thing' (Thanks to Kylie Jenner) so these are perfect for the makeup lover in your life! The only thing I will say is that they have been sold out online and are impossible to find in store. Let's just hope that they get restocked soon!

2)Impulse Body Spray Mini Cracker Gift Set- Rock and Love, Why Not and Very Pink are all included in this adorable set. The best part about it is that it is cu…

What you Need For Back to School...

It's already this time of year again; obviously I'm thrilled. Of course this is the best part of summer with the perpetual worrying about getting the 'wrong' thing and all of the consideration you have to put into making sure your bag won't clash with your face. I mean, maybe that's not what you're thinking, but now you are, right? Is your backpack the wrong colour for you? I can't confirm it isn't, but I can guarantee that these items are all cute as hell.

VANS Snoopy Backpack- Currently, this back pack is sat in my wardrobe, waiting for the sixth of September. I saw it when I was in Cornwall and fell in love with it so ordered it as soon as I got home. My bag was VANS last year and was so well made (there's even a secret pocket)! This one is a dark navy with little drawings of skateboarding Snoopy all around. I've loved Snoopy since I was little and this is just a nice homage to him!
Michael Kors Over the Shoulder- I have never been mor…
