Social media and I have a love-hate relationship. In fact, I would definitely place us under the ‘it’s complicated’ category on Facebook. If you didn’t know, my full-time job heavily revolves around social media so a lot of my time is spent online, posting on and monitoring Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and various other platforms. I then finish work at 5pm and spend chunks of my evenings scrolling social media, both in a personal capacity and for my blog.
I think it’s safe to say that all of us are sick of winter now. The dark nights, freezing temperatures and the need to wrap up in a million layers before leaving the house is well and truly getting old. As the days are getting longer by minutes a week, I’m finding myself wishing for Spring to arrive more and more. Of course, sunnier days holds warmth, beer gardens and light nights which I’m looking forward to, but I also can’t wait to switch up my wardrobe and start wearing, well, less basically.
Happy Friday! I’m currently planted on the sofa waiting for my Deliveroo – chips with a side of prosecco (who knew my local chippy did prosecco?!). Since it’s finally February I thought I would look back on some of my New Year’s resolutions and see if I’ve managed to stick to them, whilst sharing some things that I’ve been loving over the past few weeks, so grab a glass of wine/prosecco/beverage of your choice!
I don’t know about you but I’m always drained and exhausted in January. It’s back to work, throwing yourself into your new year’s resolutions and trying to restrain yourself from ordering that pizza (I did fail at this yesterday). You feel like you should be refreshed after a week off at Christmas, but let’s face it – it’s never a relaxing period and you feel like you could do with another week to recover.
A few weeks ago my friends and I were having one of our usual chats at work when somehow the topic of gratefullness came up. It’s a conversation that has stuck with me for some reason and it has put a lot of things into perspective for me ever since, so much so that I thought I’d share it on here.
I’ve got to admit, I was never one of those people who invested in classic pieces. I’ve been a student for the majority of my life so far so it’s only been in the last year or so that I’ve been able to do so. To be clear, I by no means have the money to spend hundreds of pounds on a piece of clothing, but with a bit of budgeting I can occasionally fork out that little bit more on pieces that I know will stand the test of time.
There’s no doubt about it – these trousers are manrepelling. In fact, to quote my boyfriend, they’re “horrible”. I’ll admit, a few months ago wearing cords would have been completely out of the question – but here I am, sporting a pink pair nonetheless. When you hear the word ‘cords’ the chances are your mind automatically goes to your Grandad – at least mine tends to. It’s typically the clothing of choice for ‘older’ generation, but thanks to the 70s trend cords are pretty much everywhere at the moment. Here I am, jumping on the bandwagon!
