Around the new year, I decided I really wanted to streamline my Instagram account. I don’t mean my own photos however (although perhaps I should delete some of the really rubbish ones!), I mean the accounts that I follow and the photos I end up seeing on my feed. Although doing this hasn’t exactly beaten the algorithm, I am finally seeing a lot of different accounts when I have a scroll through 😊
So how did I do it?
Wow, what a long old year, eh? The first few months seemed super long and the rest, as usual, has absolutely sailed by! I hope you’ve all had a really lovely 2017 but if you haven’t, here’s hoping your 2018 is much better 🙂
If you’ve read my blog before, you might know that I’ve not only written a post about things to think about before you get a tattoo but also a couple of posts on my tattoo laser removal sessions, because I’ve ended up having major tattoo regret!!
This year I decided to really look into getting a cover-up for my rib tattoo as I had the funds and I figured it was about time to finally do something about it.
A couple of weeks ago, I was invited along to check out a brand that was completely new to my radar; Higher Nature. The event was held at BozBoz Gallery in Brighton (near St Peter’s Church) which was the perfect setting to show off their products.
I absolutely hate winter; mostly because of what it does to my skin. My rosacea flares up a lot, leaving me looking almost permanently flushed and it can also make my face really dry and spotty in patches. My skin also tends to look super dull as well.
Luckily, this year I actually have a few products that have been really helping to keep my skin looking and feel amazing for once, so I thought I’d share them with you 🙂
Last year I was invited to the Jingle and Mingle event, hosted by Mickaela and Amy from Salon Success. Unfortunately I was too ill to attend and I was absolutely gutted, although they did very kindly sent me out a goody bag ♥ and I wrote a post about the amazing goodies I received.
This year I was invited again and was determined to make it!
I actually really like writing these posts as it’s a great way to remind myself what I’ve been up to every month. Sometimes it’s so hard to remember as the months tend to blur into one!! Anyway, I really hope you all enjoy reading them 🙂
If you haven’t got a clue what I’m talking about, blog retweet accounts are specific accounts on Twitter that will retweet your promo blog tweets; either to a larger following or to loads of different people who don’t perhaps follow you and haven’t read your blog before 😀
If you follow these accounts, it’s also a great way to find some incredible new bloggers and Twitter accounts to follow as well 🙂
I’ve seen a few tweets floating around recently asking people for their favourite retweet accounts, so I thought I’d share the ones I use the most often.
Just over four weeks ago, I was having a shower and remembered to give my boobies a check, because HELLO, it’s super important!!
Instead of my usual soft and smooth squishy boobs, I found a hard lump in my right breast.
I must have spent another 10 minutes in the shower desperately trying not to panic and squishing my boobs every which way to make sure I was mistaken. But I wasn’t. There was definitely a lump there.
Ever since I was invited to the Lush event last year, it’s safe to say my opinion about Lush has definitely changed! I used to find there was too much choice, but now I know what I like and don’t like, I’m happy to spend a good half hour browsing for new products!
I was thrilled to get an invite to this year’s Lush event in Crawley; not only to get to see the new products coming out, but also to spend some time with some of my blogging faves; Katie, Charlie, Tania and Rosie 🙂
