| Blogmas | Thank U, 2018

So 2018 is quickly coming to an end and I thought why not take a quick look back at what  great year its been!

 

As you could easily tell by looking at my Spotify Top 100 songs of 2018 I was dumped. This is made clear by heavily featuring songs such as “No Scrubs” and “Ain’t yo Mamma”

Minus that but also totally including it as well 2018 has been suuuuuch a fab year.

Probably the best I’ve had in such a long time.

I finally feel as though I’m getting somewhere in life and everything is coming together perfectly after a long time of feeling lost.

 

Career-wise, Blog-wise and Personal Life-wise everything seems to be getting better…

| Lifestyle | Homeware Picks

Hello lovelies,

 

So I’ve decided to put together a quick blog post on my current favourite bits and bobs for around your home. This is inspired by the fact that yesterday (Haha when I initially started this post *cough* September) I started my first steps towards becoming a home owner. Super super exciting!! I went into my first meeting with a mortgage advisor just to get an idea of where I’m at now, how far I need to get to get on the property ladder, and how much of a mortgage loan is possible for me.

I went into this meeting with zero expectations and I left on an absolute high. I had been looking at flats at the lower end of my mortgage range thinking that had been my highest range. So to know I can afford a much better flat/house is just fab!! Also on a side note, if you live in Scotland like I do and you’re a first time buyer definitely look into setting up a Help to By ISA. This is a government scheme that you can use to save your 5% deposit and when you go to buy the government will contribute a percentage (up to £12,000 + £3,000 from the gov).

 

Every little helps!

Hey Guys,

 

Welcome back to my Blogmas posts.

 

This is super special one. I’ve decided to do a post to support a small business at Christmas. And one close to my heart.

 

Hebridean Woodcraft

 

This is a little local run business that my older sister has started. At the moment she mainly makes Christmas pieces. And they can be personalised too.

 

One of the main reason  I love them is because they remind me of home. Some are written in Gaelic and some are personalised to the Island I grew up on.

 

Before I post some pictures of the fab pieces she has come up with you can also check out her Facebook page here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What are your favourite small businesses that you support?

 

Until Next Time,

Shona Marie xo

| Lifestyle | Single In the City ~ The Dr Will See You Now

Hello beauties,

 

Welcome to the second instalment of Single in the City and this has to be one of the quickest most dull dates I’ve had in my life…and that is saying something

 

Let me set the scene; I’ve had a super long week at work, it’s a cold Thursday night in October and I’m actually coming home to put my face on and head out to meet a guy for drinks…. on a school night too! This is not the one, I love nothing more than a cosy night in.

I had been WhatsApping this guy for a while. Everything seemed pretty perfect, a year older than me, a farm boy, really polite and seeming a genuinely good guy.
