Blogmas Day 30: New Years Resolutions 2021 lookback :)

Blogmas Day 30: New Years Resolutions 2021 lookback :)
  1. Read 2 books a month- I actually managed to read 30 books this year which is pretty cool πŸ™‚ I have always loved reading (I think I get it from my Mum) and I have been off my reading game lately so it was nice to get back into it πŸ™‚ I have a couple of favourite books from this year: The Midnight Library by Matt Haig, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and The Couple by Helly Acton πŸ™‚

2. 2500 followers on my blog- I actually did not manage to reach 2500 followers on my blog I feel like this was a very ambitious goal but I did manage to reach 1730 which is really cool and I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has followed me ❀

3. Have a pamper evening every week- I absolutely LOVE pamper evenings and I have spent a lot of time having lots of baths using lots of bath bombs and face and hair masks πŸ™‚

4. Complete my running bucket list- I actually haven’t looked at my running bucket list this year because I have done a few other bits of working out instead which was I started climbing and also some Yoga πŸ™‚ I did quite a bit of running at the start of the year but haven’t had a lot of time since going back to work πŸ™‚

5. Do some Yoga- I have been working through a lot of Yoga stuff this year as I was doing Yoga with my brother at the start of the year doing a 30 day Yoga challenge and I actually did 2 of those throughout the year πŸ™‚


6. Drink 2000ml of water a day- I have actually drunk a lot more water since going back to work as I take a massive water-bottle with me and drink lots of water which there πŸ™‚

7. Post on Instagram twice a week- I have actually posted twice a week on two social medias because I also posted on Mayas Instagram once a week which was so much fun πŸ™‚ I loved getting to spent more time with her at the start of the year while on Furlough and then when I went back to work I have tried to balance my time between work and spending time with her πŸ™‚ I enjoyed working on my social media as well and taking photos and capturing the few moments that we have been allowed to do stuff and spend time with friends and family πŸ™‚


8. Post on my blog twice a week starting in February- Despite going back to work in June I have actually managed to post twice a week on here which is so cool, its been hard at times but I enjoy having this creative outlet to talk about some of my favourite things and to talk about my life and take photos for posts as well πŸ™‚

9+ 10: Be More minimalistic and also sort out my laptop and room: I tried to be relatively organised when it comes to sorting out my bedroom and also have made a consious effort to not buy as much this year and to only buy what is absolutely necessary πŸ™‚


11. Save Money: I have managed to save a bit of money this year which is really cool but obviously I wont be talking too much about this for security reasons πŸ™‚

12. Do something nice for Maya once a week: Like I mentioned earlier I managed to spend quite a bit of time with Maya at the start of the year and then I have spent quite a bit of time with her since going back to school and it was nice to have this resolution to make sure I spent lots of time with her and made her year special as well πŸ™‚

13. Do something nice for a friend once a week: I have taken the chance to really try and do something really nice for friends this year- lots of little moments and presents πŸ™‚

14. Have a photoshoot once a month: I have done quite a few photoshoots this year which have been a lot of fun and just taking random photos with friends πŸ™‚


16. Reach 30,000 views- I actually did manage to reach 30,000 views which was so much fun and again I want to thank everyone who has read and commented and liked my posts this year πŸ™‚

17. Write down 5 things I’m proud of every month: This I did this actually for the first few months of the year and then it started to unfortunately dwindle as the months went on and I got busier which is a real shame as it was something that I really enjoyed looking back on as we went into 2021 from 2020 πŸ™‚

18. Do training with Maya: I have done quite a bit of training with Maya this year which has been a lot of fun and a good way to make sure I am setting aside time to spend with her giving her all of my attention πŸ™‚

19. Cook/Bake 5 new things: I have cooked so much more than 5 new things!! This year we actually started getting Hello Fresh delivered which I cook 3 times a week πŸ™‚ I have definitely improved my cooking through doing this and have also done a few little baking sessions as well πŸ™‚


 20 and 21. Complete half of my 101 things list and reach 400 on my bucket list : This I have managed to do and I have had so much fun doing it as well πŸ™‚ I love capturing special moments in my life which my bucket list and the 101 things list allow me to do πŸ™‚


 

Blogmas Day 29: December Favourites 2021 :)

Blogmas Day 29: December Favourites 2021 :)

Spiderman No Way Home and Hawkeye: I am a massive Marvel fan and we have been so blessed this month with two AMAZING Marvel projects!! I have been really enjoying all of the Marvel TV shows that have been released and I think Hawkeye might be my favourite of all of the shows πŸ™‚ I am a big Hailee Steinfield fan so seeing her be introduced to the MCU was really cool and I’m a big fan of Yelena as a character πŸ™‚

Spiderman has always been one of my favourite MCU characters and this movie has had so much hype around it but it definitely lived up to it!! I don’t want to say too much more because it hasn’t been out for very long and I don’t want to give away any spoilers πŸ™‚

Enchanto Album: Many of you will already know that I am a big Lin Manuel Miranda fan so when I heard that he had written the songs for this new Disney film I was so happy and excited πŸ™‚ I absolutely love this album and I think my favourite song would have to be We Don’t talk about Bruno which is so funny! πŸ™‚

Brighton Lanes: Early this month my parents and I went to the Brighton Christmas festival and went shopping in all of the little shops in the lanes πŸ™‚ Some of my favourites include the flagship Lucy and Yak store, Berts Homestore and a few different Harry Potter/Comic books stores which are all really cool- I have always absolutely loved Brighton as a city for many reasons including the shopping and especially near to Christmas its an amazing place to look for interesting Christmas presents πŸ™‚

I don’t have a lot of favourites this month as a lot of this month has been taken up by Christmas shopping, working and spending lots of time with Maya which has been so much fun πŸ™‚

Let me know in the comments what you have been loving this month πŸ™‚

Blogmas Day 28: What I got for Christmas 2021 :)

Blogmas Day 28: What I got for Christmas 2021 :)


DISCLAIMER
I am not in any way trying to brag or show off I just love reading these types of posts and watching these kinds of videos so I thought I might try and do one myself ❀ DISCLAIMER

This year I have been so so lucky and have received some really thoughtful and lovely presents πŸ™‚ I think the last few years have shown that Christmas really isn’t about the gifts but its about who is in your life and the people that you love ❀

The first person I saw was one of my best friends Birunda when we went to see Spiderman NWH together and she got me two books which I’m very excited to read!! We actually became friends because everytime we would borrow a book from our school library it would have the other persons name as the last person to borrow it so then we got chatting and the rest is history πŸ™‚

My Mums best friend popped round the day before Christmas eve and dropped round some presents including a mini greenhouse for me which is so so cool!!! I have gotten really into plants and stuff over the last year so I’m very excited for my new project πŸ™‚

As many of you will know I’m a big fan of lush stuff and bath bombs and candles so I got a few different toiletry bits from different people which I’m so grateful for and will last me till next Christmas ❀

One of the really cool gifts that my Mum surprised me with was an orange syrup for my hot chocolate as I am a big fan of the Costa Terrys Chocolate Orange Hot Chocolates so she thought that it would be a nice idea for me to be able to make them myself at home πŸ™‚

Most years my Mum gets me some sort of calendar for the year ahead and so this year I picked out a Hamilton calendar which I’m very excited to put up and write all over it with hopefully lots of lovely plans in the new year πŸ™‚

From my oldest brother I got a Nightmare Before Christmas cookbook and music box which are both so cool!!! I am a massive fan of that movie and end up watching it multiple times in the lead up to Halloween which my brother knows πŸ™‚ He also got my Mum and I tickets to a show in the new year!

My parents also got me some clothes from Lucy and Yak which I was very grateful for and my middle brother got my Mum and I a combined present which he does most years and he sends us on a Spa weekend ❀ Thank you so much to everyone who sent me well wishes, presents and love this year ❀

Let me know in the comments what Christmas present from years past has meant the most to you and why πŸ™‚

Blogmas Day 25: Merry Christmas 2021 :)

Blogmas Day 25: Merry Christmas 2021 :)

I actually can’t believe Christmas is finally here!! It feels like I blinked and December just came and went- I feel like this year it hasn’t felt like Christmas at all due to a sense of impending lockdown/doom however its finally here!! I actually have a bit of time off just before and slightly after as well so I’m looking forward to spending some festive time at home πŸ™‚

This Christmas is going to look slightly different than my usual christmasses as this year we have decided to go to my Nans for Christmas dinner and see all of my Dads side of the family there including all of my nans dogs and my cousins and my aunt and then my Mums side of the family is coming for a Boxing day dinner once I get back from work πŸ™‚ I believe my middle brother is going to come over however my oldest brother is currently having to isolate so I think we’re going to skype him on Christmas day which will be lovely πŸ™‚

This year is Mayas third Christmas so I’m excited to see if she remember past years and gets excited to open presents! Last year near the end she started opening her presents herself which is very fun and we always take her for a nice family walk together as well πŸ™‚

Merry Christmas everyone πŸ™‚
