Sometimes I absolutely can’t help myself. I’m a bit of a lucky giveaway winner, I seem to win a lot and I don’t know why. I’m also quite lucky at raffles too, just ask Áine 😂😂 So I’ve put myself on a bit of a ban entering giveaways, especially as I own so many products that I barely use already.
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.
March has been a bit of a “blink and you’ll miss it” month. It’s also been a bit rubbish if I’m being honest. I feel like my blog is lacking direction at the moment and I don’t know where to take it. I’ve barely blogged at all 🙁 I’ve also not really felt myself and at the beginning of the month I lacked any motivation, boooo!
If you’ve seen me moaning on Insta stories about my face recently, you might know that I’ve had a weird problem with my right cheek for a while. I just couldn’t get my foundation to sit nicely on it, but now that I’m using a new skin care routine, it’s got a lot better. This means I’ve been able to wear full on make-up again 😀😀 which makes me very happy because, sometimes, it’s just nice to stick on some make-up and feel your absolute best, even if you’re super tired or so over Monday already and it’s not even 9 am yet!!
At the end of last year, I wrote a post about attending the Jingle and Mingle event, hosted by the lovely Mickaela and Amy from Salon Success. Since January, I’ve been using the Awapuhi Wild Ginger Mirrorsmooth products by Paul Mitchell that I was kindly gifted.
Well, I finally made it to Southampton to see Alice and Joshua 😀 I also got a fab surprise in the form of Emily, Alice’s sister!! I follow her on social media and have chatted to her for ages, so it was lovely to finally meet!!
I’ve never written a blog post like this before; mostly because I’ve never actually had a pile of books that I haven’t read yet; I’m usually a one book at a time girl!!
You know when you’re feeling a bit rubbish and you’re not sure why? Well, I love cooking something that’s comforting and, for me, nothing says comforting like a nice big plate of curry and rice!!
Oh jeez, where to start with February?? Well, I spent the first two weeks of it off work, feeling incredibly dizzy and sick!! I was in bed for most of the mornings with the TV on quietly as a distraction, then had a quick shower and flumped on the sofa with a blanket for the afternoons; Dog Rescuers with Alan Davies has become one of my new favourite shows!!
