Why Sunday's are my favourite...

Sunday...the day I always look forward to every week and is normally the day that I have no plans! Sunday for me is usually my most successful and productive day and I love how chilled it is at the same time. Today I wanted to sit down and write a really easy but useful post for you. A Sunday can be a mixture of laziness, productivity, creativity and more...all in one day!

Blogging 

Sunday is probably the main day for me that I get most of my blogging bits done for the following week. I feel like I am very productive on a Sunday as I feel chilled and can spend the whole day working in comfy clothes! I love to get my laptop and my blogging book and sit on my bed while I write posts, read other blogs, come up with ideas and so on. I always think that I get really inspired when I am looking at other people's blogs and Instagram pictures and this is the best feeling! I will also plan out my Instagram photos for the week on a Sunday so that I feel prepared. Some week's I wont have enough images to post every single day, but sometimes this happens and I have accepted this. I try to post as much as I can and if I get to post every single day then that's a bonus! If I didn't have a full time job then I probably would be able to take a lot more Instagram images but at the minute, I shoot when I can and as often as I can. Sunday is also a perfect day for me to take any product photos that I need to take. I really enjoy setting up flat lays and little set's to take some photos for either my blog or social media. As well as taking the images, I really enjoy editing them as well. I will take the photos on my camera or Iphone and edit everything on my phone! I don't use any fancy equipment and still get the images that I want. So overall, a Sunday for me is the perfect time to work on content for my blog as well as catching up on everyone else's. It's the day for feeling inspired and motivated and that's why it has to be one of the best days.

Do People Still Make New Years Resolutions?

2019 is fast approaching and if I'm honest...I can't wait to say goodbye to 2018. This year has been an interesting one for sure and I can't wait to have a new start and a new year. I feel like opinions on setting new years resolutions and the idea of a new start have changed. A lot of people still love setting new goals and achievements but a lot of people now are against the idea. Personally, I don't really have a preference. If people want to set them, then great! But if people don't like the idea of new years resolutions, then that's fine too. It's all down to the individual and where you are in your life. Some people may not need to set any goals as they are happy with how things and are going and some people may always be working on their goals all year round. Some people don't see a point in setting resolutions as they know they will last a couple of days and some people like the idea of a fresh start and the idea of setting some targets to go into the new year with. That's where I'm currently sitting...looking at 2019 as a new start and a beginning to set some targets and goals for myself.

I usually try and set myself some resolutions every year, but for some reason, this year I am more determined than ever to set myself some new goals and new starts. 2018 has been full of ups and downs for me and I'm ready to say goodbye to some situations as well as some people. I guess this is a completely normal thing for everyone as a lot can happen in a year. Don't get me wrong, there were so many amazing highlights of 2018! I gained an amazing friend, I met one of my biggest inspirations In The Frow, I did a skydive, I got another tattoo, I dyed my hair dark, I went on some epic road-trips, I saw some amazing artists in concert, I went to Greece with one of my best friends, I bought a new car, I relaunched my blog, I started working with an amazing Photographer, I turned 21 and so much more! Out of everything that happened this year, one of the things that I am most excited about and happy to announce is that on the 27th December, my sister had a baby! That's right...I'm an Auntie. Welcome to the world Ophelia Grace Forster! So there has been some great things to happen in 2018 that I will be forever grateful for but as always, there also has been some bad things to happen in 2018! But, I am hoping to leave most of that behind with 2018 and start 2019 with positivity!

Why I Love Having Time Off In Winter

As a lot of you may know, I much prefer the colder months to any other. I prefer the darker nights, wrapping up in jumpers and coats and feeling super cosy inside while it's raining! Today I wanted to write up a post all about the things I like to do in my time off over Christmas. This post is definitely going to be super cosy and chilled and I thought it was the perfect type of post to write for this rainy Sunday! So sit back, relax and I hope you enjoy reading today's post!

1. Pamper Time 

I think over Christmas is the perfect time to have a few pamper days or evenings. It's one of my favourite things to do and can make me feel like a new women! I love getting all of my skincare products out and choosing what I want to use for a pamper evening. I usually start with a face mask and we all know this is an essential! I then have a shower where I can exfoliate, cleanse and give my hair a good wash. I really enjoy spending the time to give my skin a deep cleanse as it always feels soft and fresh afterwards! A face mask and exfoliator that I am loving using at the minute is the Superdrug Superfruits Exfoliating Mask and the Zoella Pretty Polished Body Scrub. Next, I will light some candles in my bedroom as I finish off my skincare routine. If I am having a pamper session, I will always use lots of amazing skincare products to leave my skin feeling hydrated and soft. The Body Shop Drops of Youth ConcentrateBouncy Sleeping Mask and Soap and Glory Eye Patches are key products for any pamper session of mine. These are affordable and Cruelty Free products which I would recommend trying if you haven't already. I finish off my skincare using a body butter or lotion! I will then sit back and relax while doing other beauty bits while watching a good TV show like friends or the big bang! This could include painting my toenails, plucking my eyebrows, applying a foot mask and loads more! Everyone's pamper routine will be different and there are so many different beauty bits that you could do to make yourself feel amazing. I think that it's really important to make time to look after yourself, especially around the colder months as this is when your skin will need it the most. It allows you time to recharge and get yourself feeling amazing again!
