Monthly Favourites & Goals | April

Monthly Favourites & Goals | April

It's kind of scary to think that we are a third of the way through the year already. April has been quite a bittersweet month for me, it's been filled with so many lovely moments and so many unfair ones too. I don't have all that many favourites this month because I've been sticking to a lot of the same product but there has been a few stand out items and moments that i want to share.

April | Taffy Mail

April | Taffy Mail

I was very lucky to try a Taffy Mail box last month (see here) but due to it being a PR Sample, i assumed it was a one off and i never expected to receive another so i was very surprised and very grateful when i picked this up from the post office. I have a very sweet tooth, so i can't explain how nice it is to receive a box full of American Sweeties to try out.

The Perfect Nude Nail & A Affordable Dupe

The Perfect Nude Nail & A Affordable Dupe

I've been on the hunt for that perfect nude nail for ages, every time i tried a nude polish it was either too white, too grey or too beige. It was never quite the 'perfect' nude that i was looking for. A few weeks ago i decided to have a browse through my nail polish collection and came across a mini Nails Inc Nail Polish in Porchester Square.

Sewing Project #1 | A Baby Blanket

Sewing Project #1 | A Baby Blanket

When i found out my lovely friend was having a baby; i knew i wanted to do something special. I decided to challenge myself and make a baby patchwork blanket. Obviously, I'm still a bit of a novice when it comes to sewing but i did a lot of research and found many helpful sites to help me and I'm pretty proud of the outcome.

This post isn't going to be a tutorial, i will cover some of the process i went through but i will link any sites that i used at the end of the post if you're looking for a step by step tutorial.

My Bullet Journal Flip Through

My Bullet Journal Flip Through

This is going to be quite a lengthy post with many many photos so before you delve into it, I'm going to recommend stocking up on snacks and that you go make yourself a brew because you might be here a while.

I've mentioned my Bullet Journal on my blog quite a lot recently, I'm completely obsessed with it so i thought you might like a flip through post of whats inside my journal. Please note that this is essentially like a diary, so sharing these pages is quite personal and there are a few things that I've covered with a sticky notes that i don't wish to share but other than you can see virtually everything inside. Also, whilst i enjoy getting creative with washi tape and attempting to doodle - I'm not the greatest.

Ideally, this would have been better to do in a video format but I'm far too scared for that so a ridiculously long post will have to do instead.

26 Things Before 26

26 Things Before 26

Today is my 25th Birthday. I'm officially half way to 50 and a quarter of a century old - writing this makes me feel a little bit sick. I'm not a massive fan of birthdays, i don't really enjoy getting older and ever since turning 18 they seems to come around quicker and quicker each year. I feel like years are passing by and im not really making the most of them in the way that i should so i've decided to set myself 26 things to do before i turn 26.

I heard about the Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Matte Lip 3D Lip Colour & Sculpt briefly a little while ago but after that they weren't featured much on blogs etc... so they quickly slipped from my mind. I came across them again whilst making a Boots order and decided to give them a try.

My Current Make Up Picks #1

My Current Make Up Picks #1

I wasn't actually planning to do a post like this but last month i ordered myself a new make up bag and it's finally arrived. It's so pretty and i just wanted an excuse to share it with you so i thought I'd also tell you what make up products I'm wearing the most too.

What I Use to Bullet Journal

I hope you don't mind all these Bullet Journal related posts that I'm doing, it's just something that I'm really enjoying at the moment and i really want to blog about it and share it with you. This post is all about the stuff i use to do my bullet journal, from the notebook itself to the variety of pens i like to use.

Please note this is not me telling you what you do and don't need, this it just what i personally like to use.

I'm doing my best to take a more positive yet laid back approach to blogging to remove the stress and return it to the once loved hobby that it was. Thanks to a lovely email from Treaclemoon, I've had a little help relaxing with their new release 'Gentle Powder Love'.

Why I Chose To Bullet Journal

I've decided now that a new month is upon us, i want a fresh start. A clean slate if you will. April is my absolute favourite month, not only is is my birthday month but i like the feeling of change that comes along with it too - It's the month when Spring really starts to set in and everywhere starts to transform and bloom so after March being a poopy month, i'm doing my best to be a bit more positive.

Onto this actual post; thanks to Pinterest, i recently got sucked into the world of Bullet Journalling and it's safe to say I've become obsessed. I really wanted to do a post to share with you what it is and why i chose to start one.
