Being a blogger and maintaining an active presence on Twitter and Instagram, it’s really easy for me to put up photos, tweets and blog posts that show me being awesome and at my best, but sometimes I’m really not. I do try to write more honest Insta captions to go with my pretty photos now, which I hope makes me slightly more relatable (I dunno though, do they? Can someone let me know?)
I’m not perfect by any means though and I happen to have loads of bad habits just like everyone else, so I thought I’d let you in on a few!
To be honest, when I sat down to write this month’s catch up, I could barely remember what I got up to at all. I actually had to look back at earlier blog posts and check my Google calendar to know what I did!
*Disclaimer* this post has no actual photos of feet!
I have to be honest, one of the things I hate most about the UK suddenly getting a few hot daya is everyone who shoves on a pair sandals or flip-flops, despite having spent winter neglecting their feet 😬😬😬
I mean, I’m not saying my feet are by any means perfect; my toes are slightly bent, which sometimes causes them to rub on my shoes 🤢🤢 But I do try to keep them looking as fab as I possibly can!
I wouldn’t have said I was obsessed with shoes or trainers, but while I was sorting out my wardrobe recently, I realised I owned a hell of a lot more pairs than I thought I did and some that I’d completely forgotten I even owned 😬😬 As it was obvious I wasn’t going to ever wear a lot of them again, I decided to get rid of a load; to charity, to the tip and on Depop!
Until I met J, I wasn’t very good with saving money on anything. I used to stick to the same companies year on year for my insurance, mobile and internet providers because I was too lazy to switch. I’d also buy the same products all the time, not even looking at whether there was a cheaper alternative.
I’m now completely reformed and consider myself to be pretty savvy, so I thought I’d start a new series on my blog – Money Saving Tips!
To be honest, there’s nothing more exciting than being invited for food, especially when it happens to be at the newly opened The Ivy In The Lanes*, in Ship Street, Brighton. I’ve seen a few pics from the opening night and I couldn’t wait to go and see it for myself!!
How in the hell is April over already?? It’s definitely been another blink and you’ll miss it month. Plus we’ve had such random weather extremes, it’s been hard to keep up!!
A few months ago, Rosie, Katie and myself were discussing ideas on where to go after we’d had our fun day out at Wood’s in Worthing. We knew that we definitely wanted something food related and somewhere pretty for loads of cute outfit shots!!
Last week, on 12th April, J and I celebrated the fact that I’d moved into his house a whole four years ago (okay, I noticed because FB reminded me, I mentioned it to J and we hugged it out!!) It’s been an interesting journey of discovery as I’d never lived with a boyfriend before and he’d never had anyone properly living with him in his house!
I rarely venture out as far as Hove for food, despite knowing there are some absolute gems when it comes to great places to eat with Instagrammable décor, mostly because it’s almost an hour away by bus for me and I’m pretty lazy! But, when Sammy, Jess, Tania and I were chatting about meeting up for brunch, I was happy to let them choose somewhere to go, because I know they know all the best spots! Sammy suggested Hixon Green so we made a plan to meet up.
