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 life 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!
As a teenager I didn’t have an easy time at school. Don’t get me wrong some parts where great and others not so much. It’s the time of year when I would have left school for what feels like a lifetime ago. I was quite insecure about myself back then, and it got me thinking about how much I’ve changed and become way more confident.
Like most material things in life they come and go through our lives. Some things stay with us forever, reminding us of childhood memories or important moments in our lives. Some are only there until they are broken or no longer serve their purpose. And other objects fall into a category where they have memories attached to them, like little balloons following them where ever they go, yet are too difficult to let go of even if they’re hardly used.
They say you should do something that scares you everyday. Which is something I definitely don’t do. I fall into a routine of making plans for tomorrow and not today. Leaving things to be done for another time. Sometimes it can’t be helped, things have to be saved for another day. But there are certain things that can be done.
Hi everyone! I hope you are all okay! As we are now 3 months into 2017, cue cliche saying of I can’t believe 3 months of 2017 has already gone! Seriously where is the time going!? But for real though how does it go by so quickly? I thought I would do a 3 month update of how my goals are going.
