33 Things I Want To Do In 2017



I'm not bothering setting myself any proper 'goals' for this year because, lets be honest, how many of us actually stick to them? There's the standard, cliche things I'd like to change; eat healthier, exercise more, save more... you get the jist. But if I set myself specific targets and amounts, I'll just feel guilty if I don't end up meeting them. Instead, I'd rather think about things I'd like to do in 2017. They're not all spectacular - mainly just little things that will all contribute to making 2017 a good one...

The Sunday Pick-Me-Up


Sunday's are my favourite day of the week. I mentioned in my last post (about the beauty of a lazy weekend) how I used to hate Sunday's because I didn't do anything. Ironically, that's why I love them so much, nowadays. They're a day for faffing, for mooching around, for snacking & grazing, for not doing anything of importance, for just making the most of a whole day with no priorities or pressing matters.

The Beauty Of A Lazy Weekend



When I was younger, I used to love spending my Saturday's hanging out with friends in Leeds, seeing how far I could make my £10 pocket money go. Then, I used to think Sunday's were boring cos I did nothing. Oh, how things have changed. I can't imagine anything worse than moping around a busy city centre on a Saturday and I can't imagine not wanting to have a lazy Sunday...

Stocking Filler Ideas: Beauty Bits £8 & Under!



I'm a firm believer that stocking fillers should be inexpensive - as all they are is a 'filler' present, after all! However, I've seen loads of beauty 'stocking filler' gift guides kicking around that are quite the opposite - a £20 mascara may fit nicely in a stocking but, for me, that ain't a filler! So I wanted to put together some bits and bobs for the beauty lover in your life that won't break the bank...

Things I Said I'd Do In 2016 (And Didn't)



2016 has been a right funny old year, hasn't it? I feel like it's just been a collectively shit year for the world - I mean, we lost Alan Rickman and gained Donald fecking Trump as a president so, y'know, it's not been the best, has it? 2016 was the year I was supposed to 'sort my life out'. Here's how that went...

Tips For Getting The Perfect Instagram Shot



Instagram has quickly become my favourite social media platform. I love seeing peoples daily lives documented in little square pictures and I love playing around with making my grid look as #goals as possible. Joking (kinda). Although the new algorithm has pissed me (and everyone) off a little bit, it's actually made me want to try even harder with making my Insta as follow-able as possible!

Christmas Pyjama Picks





Everyone loves festive pyjamas, don't they? I know I do. They just seem 10x cosier than normal pyjamas! If I could live in pyjamas, a dressing gown and slippers - I would. Here's my pick of some of the cutest, cosiest Christmas pj's around - perfect for getting snuggled up in on a cold winter's night...

Things That Will Get You In The Festive Spirit If You're Not Already



Unlike last year, I've been feeling festive for quite a while, now. And now we're actually in December, I'm in full on Christmas mode. But I know some people will still be feeling a bit 'meh' about the holiday season. Last year, I couldn't be arsed with Christmas at all - we didn't even put up any Christmas decorations (I know, what scrooges). I think because I was just in a bit of a down mood in general, this time last year, I sort of ruined the whole build up to Christmas for myself. If you're in a similar position, here's a few things that might help to get you firmly into the festive spirit...

Decorating A Small Space For Christmas

If, like me, you don't have loads of space for a big Christmas tree covered in lights and baubles, then you'll probably prefer to get your place in the festive spirit by other means. My side board takes centre stage in my living room - it's one of those pieces of furniture that is more for show than practicality - I love styling it with prints, candles and what not. So, come December, I knew I wanted to fill it with festive decorations!

Stocking Filler Ideas: Monogram Edition

If there's one thing people have obsessed over in 2016, it's monogram stuff. Because we just really like to have our initials emblazoned on our shit, don't we? I mentioned Anthropologie's classic monogram mugs in yesterday's home stocking fillers gift guide which led me to create a whole post based around monogram memorabilia...

Stocking Filler Ideas: Home Edition



So, I thought I'd kick off Blogmas with a few gift guides! I often prefer buying lots of little gifts for someone rather than one big gift (so there's more to unwrap, of course!) so today I've put together some stocking filler ideas for those who love their homeware...

Attempting Blogmas!



So, gang, I've decided I'm going to attempt blogmas this year. I say 'attempt' rather than actually do because there is defo a 50/50 chance that I'll end up completely forgetting to post some days or just run out of ideas entirely. A bit like last year (more of that here)...
