The last time I did a bullet journal update was all the way back in May so I wouldn’t be surprised if you assumed it had been a fad and I’d gone back to my usual disorganisation. Well turns out, this millennial system has actually worked wonders for me and almost a year later and I’m still hooked. When I initially set it up, I did quite a lot of research and actually, whilst I know a lot of people change up their bullet journals a lot, I found most of my original spreads worked nicely for my life. However, come the end of December I was ridiculously excited to get a new one and start afresh. So today I thought I’d share some updates I’ve made to my setup for 2018.

Oh hey there! It has been a little while since I last blogged as I pretty much decided to take December off blogging (bar some pre-scheduled posts) and my time away ran a little into January too. I’ve been blogging consistently for many a year now, so I felt that a break was well overdue, and now I’ve come back with a new layout, new photography equipment, and a whole bunch of new ideas so I feel completely and utterly refreshed. I thought today I’d come on quickly to launch my new blog layout and also share with you some blogging/life goals for 2018.

I’ve always been a huge fan of watches. I remember when I was little I was obsessed with 101 Damaltions and had the prettiest silver Disney watch with paw charms as the strap – I’m pretty sure it was that watch that started my obsession. I then owned a multitude of different watches over the years, from a bright red swatch watch to the classic rose gold Michael Kors. In recent years I’ve enjoyed the minimalist watch and my number one go-to brand for these is, of course, Daniel Wellington. I have a few DW watches in my collection now so when they asked if I wanted another one I obviously jumped at the opportunity. I went for the Classic Sheffield 36mm Silver watch as I’ve wanted a more masculine styled watch for ages. Let’s just say I love it.

I’ve been to a fair few blogging events in my time and my favourites are often the Christmas ones, and last week I went to one of the most festive ones yet! To celebrate the launch of the M&S Beauty Advent Calendars, M&S teamed up with Biscuiteers to bring us a gingerbread house making workshop. Yes, that is as great as it sounds. The calendar this year has been inspired by a gingerbread house, so not only did we get a house to decorate and eat but one full of beauty goodies too. Now I vlogged the event amongst other things that day so head below to see my vlog and photos of the event and calendar!

It has been so damn long since I’ve talked about my lifestyle favourites. I made a conscious effort to streamline my blog to all beauty a while back and whilst I’m absolutely loving that direction, I feel like there’s a little person inside of me desperate to share some things which aren’t beauty related that I’ve been loving. Sure, I do this on Twitter on a daily basis but I think it’s time for a quick summary so you can see the best of the best rather than today’s daily obsession. So without further ado, let’s see what I’ve been loving.
