The end of 2017 really took it out of me, I’m not going to lie but now I’m feeling a lot better, a lot sassier and definitely back to feeling myself again and it’s a great feeling. It’s crappy when you don’t feel 100% isn’t it? Let’s get into a *little* personal post but obviously with a dash of style because I am all about this outfit. Red doesn’t have to just be festive!
Hello, January! We’re into a new year and it’s time to do all those things that we’ve wanted to do for ages and for me. one of them is reading. I was bought some lovely books for Christmas and I can’t wait to get stuck in to them and do a little bedtime reading instead of scrolling. Here are the three books that I’ll be indulging in over January, they’re all different subjects but they’re all going to be super useful.
For my last post of 2017 I wanted to tell you all about a super sweet event that the lovely Jess arranged as part of her BumbleBFF Queen Bee appointment! She is definitely the perfect Queen Bee for the blogger babes of Notts and she’s doing a fab job. Let’s get down to the last festive post of this year, a Christmas themed afternoon tea at the Pudding Pantry in Nottingham.
Christmas break has been really fun this year, it’s been packed full of cute activities and all the festive feels. Daytime beers, Christmas tree festivals, the panto, snacks all the time, seeing my favourite people for brunch and apparently only wearing monochrome outfits with statement cross body bags.
I’ve always loved prints and, posters and sticking things up on my walls. From Kerrang! magazine posters to quirky prints from Urban Outfitters and IKEA now, I just love how they can change a room’s look and feel. I even painted Alexisonfire lyrics on my walls when I was 13, (sorry Mum), but I just love a bit of art, don’t I? On this note, we finally got around to doing something with our bedroom and giving it the same TLC that we’ve given the (only other) room in our flat, the kitchen/diner.
Autumn is officially here, rejoice with the leaf emojis, hot chocolates and Christmas lists. Yes. Here are 4 basic bish things that I love about autumn.
1. Buying and wearing knitwear
You might have caught my fave new knit over on Instagram that came from my 9 fave AW season knitwear pics post. The ASOS babe that has the perfect slouch, a lovely high neck and a cosy autumnal colour. Knitwear, jumpers, sweater weather, whatever you want to call it, buying and wearing cosy pieces are one of the best things about autumn. I haven’t yet got all of my really thick knits out of storage yet but I tell ya, it’s coming soon.
Notts has got a lot of things associated with it, from Robin Hood to lace and mr Boots himself (all hail the king of highstreet beauty, am I right?) to crazy things like calling people duck and bacon rolls cobs. It is a cob, by the way. I’m 100% a Nottingham girl now and a cob shop is one of the best inventions ever – hands down.
The year runs away with us so quickly, doesn’t it? All of a sudden it’s September at the end of the week and we’re only a few months away from Christmas and then the dreaded New Year’s Eve rolls around and it’s back to making resolutions we might not keep. Stress!
I’ve had a think about the things that I want to achieve by the end of 2017. This year’s gone so, so quickly for me as I’m sure it has for everyone else but I’m determined to get some stuff done over the next few weeks and months!
