Over the past two months my blog and YouTube channel have really been taking a back seat. If you’re read my Spreading Positivity post or seen my Current Fave’s video, you’ll know I have been changing my life. And I can tell you it was scary.
Since everything in my life has been a lot less hectic and I am getting better at balancing everything, I thought it was about time I did this post. Originally I wanted to do a giveaway for when I hit 2,000, but when I hit 2,000 it was in the middle of everything going on over the summer. So I decided to wait until everything had settled and I was feeling more positive about life.
I say this at the start of every month and I’ll say it again, where is 2017 going!? It feels like it has flown by but also taken it’s time because so much has happened. At the beginning of 2017 I wrote Goodbye 2016, Hello 2017 and every 3 months I have written an update as to how I have been doing this year, one in April and the last one in June.
Growing up I was never someone who was naturally confident. I was shy and had zero self confidence. I over thought and over analysed everything and I never felt good enough. I would look at the girls around me and wonder why I couldn’t be more like them: prettier, loads of friends and super confident.
Hi guys! I have been thinking lately about starting the first series here on my blog all things I have learnt over the past few years and I wanted to share tips to help you do the same. As much as I love makeup and the beauty world, something also important to me is mental health. It’s so easy to become bogged down in everyday life and get caught up in things.
As we are now half way into the year I thought about doing an update on how I’ve been doing with my goals. At the beginning of the year I wrote Goodbye 2016, Hello 2017 (which seems forever ago!) I wrote a few goals I’d like to achieve this year. Then in April I wrote a 2017 Goal Update, and I am writing another as we are now into the second half of the year.
Ever since Harry Potter Studio Tours opened in London I have wanted to go. Admittedly I was late to the Harry Potter band wagon (surprise surprise) but I loved reading the books. So earlier in the year Tom and I booked to go. We were super excited to see the Studio Tour!
Over the weekend I hit 2,000 subscribers, which is crazy! When I started this little space, this little corner of the internet I was never even sure where I was going to take it or even if I would keep it up. I know in the grand scheme if things 2,000 people is a ripple if the ocean. But to me it’s a massive achievement.
As a child I never really understood the concept of time. Being young, time seemed infinite. One day I’d be 16, 21, 30, 40 etc but I never saw my self those ages. I knew that everyday people’s time was up, but I could never imagine myself not being. Now that I’m older and have passed some age milestones, the time literally flies by. It feels like ages ago it was the beginning of 2017 but also like no time at all and we are currently half way through the year.
Earlier in the month Tom and I went for a long weekend away. When picking where we’d like to spend our time we decided upon Cornwall. I have never been to Cornwall and so I was excited to explore! A few days before we were due to go there I looked up things to do in Cornwall and I found so many things to do! So Tom and I narrowed it down to a few choices. I took so many photos from the long weekend and it was so hard to narrow it down to a hand full from each day!
