Hello and Happy New Year! It’s slightly (very) belated but better late than never eh? My January, as I’m sure is the case with many others, has been accompanied by the dreaded winter cold/sickness bug/general feelings of unwellness. My very generous boyfriend, always eager to share, passed me over his cold symptoms and of course I just had to top it by adding in some vomit too – charming, I know. So whilst I’m feeling sorry for myself on the sofa, I thought I’d share a recent outfit I shot with Dan last week, aka the good old times when I had my health.
I recently shared a reflection of my 2018 over on my Instagram stories, but it’s been a pretty exciting year for me so I thought I would expand on it over on my blog, too. I even managed to tick a couple of things off my 30 Before 30 Bucket List, which you can read here, which I was not expecting to be able to do so soon!
December is well and truly here which means that party season is just around the corner. I for one am very excited to eat my body weight in mince pies and drink copious amounts of fizz without feeling any guilt whatsoever because there’s no such thing as guilt at Christmas time.
A while ago I set myself the goal of reading more books, and honestly I’ve not done as well as I would have liked. Like many people I’m sure, I have the habit of scrolling through my phone before bed or binge watching Netflix until I can’t keep my eyes open any longer. But throughout the year I have managed to get through a few books, all of which I’ve enjoyed – some more than others. So without further ado, here’s what I’ve read so far in 2018…
I’ve got to say that I’ve never really been a fan of midi skirts on myself. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love them on other people but I just didn’t feel ‘me’ whenever I tried one on. I’ve always been a mini skirt kinda gal and I doubt this will change any time soon. However, my opinions on midi skirts recently changed when I met this leopard print number.
