| Lifestyle | Crazy for Copper

Hey hey beauties,

So it’s officially weekend number two back in Aberdeen and I’m slowly getting there with my wee flat. Its getting cosier by the day and I couldn’t be happier.

The only room I have completely finished and made my own is the kitchen. So I thought I would do a quick little post on ALL the copper pieces I’ve picked up to give the kitchen the Shonz effect.

| Beauty | Winged Liner – FOTN

Hello Beauties,

Time for OOTN/ Face of the Night post. So I thought I would share with you one of my latest night out makeup looks. Mainly because I have never been prouder of my winged eyeliner In.My.Life. And also because it was a special little night out as I had just got the keys to my new flat in Aberdeen and pre drinks were finally round at mine!

| Beauty | Cold Plunge Pore Mask by Ole Henriksen

Hello Beauties,

I’m currently sat here typing this post up surrounded by all my moving boxes. A break is seriously needed from packing. For those of you that have dealt with the stresses of packing up a flat and moving to a new city alone you will totally get my current feelings.

So all that being said, I decided to treat myself to a new face mask, my stressed out skin is so desperately crying for. And lucky lil me I actually had £25 worth of boots points on my card. Plus a face mask I had been excited to try had an offer on from its usual price of £28 to £23. So the choice was a super easy one.

| Flab to Fab| February 2019 Update

Hello my loves,

Long time no fitness update! If I’m honest the reason for that being is I hit a massive blip in fitness after my Holiday to Cyprus last October. With that and my move back to Aberdeen I just lacked the time and motivation to get back into my routine. And I had a fab routine! For someone who is far from a morning person I was managing to get up at 5:30am three times a week, meet my gym pal, work out for an hour get ready and then we both would make the 30 minute walk to work. On top of this I had my weekly spin class (absolute cardio blaster – I’ll never recommend another spin class as much Seb Shorts) Yoga and Pilates.

| Beauty | January’s Empties

Hello my Beauties,

So time for my first empties post. I’ve never gotten round to doing one of these, mainly because once somethings empty its chucked away asap – I mean why keep it??

But I’ve decided for the purpose of this post I’l keep a few products after I’ve used them to let you lovely people know my thoughts and if I would re purchase.

So let’s get into it…

| Lifestyle | New City, New Everything…

Hello lovelies,

 

So if you didn’t know already next month marks my new start back in Aberdeen. I’m super super excited and can’t wait to just move and get settled into my new place (which is the cutest flat ever). That being said I have so many things I’ll need to do once I move…

 

Find a New Hairdresser – this is a big thing. Who a girl trusts with her hair is important. I’ve had the same hairdresser for about 3 years now in Glasgow. I love our girly chats and I trust her completely with my hair. We’ve been through a lot together… from Ginger Shonz to Red head and also the just plain Brunette. I’m deffo going to miss her.

|Lifestyle | Hello 2019

Hello my loves,

 

Happy 2019!

 

I feel like its taken me a wee while to get this first post of the year out of my head. But here I am, finaaally sitting down to type it up.

I’m super excited for everything 2019 has to come. I’m currently having a major clear out to help with packing up my flat as the end of next month is my big move back to ABERDEEN.

 

My return to Aberdeen has been a long time coming. Aberdeen has always felt like home to me. Even in my 3 years living in Glasgow, every weekend trip to Aberdeen brought with it a comforting familiarness and each return to Glasgow was met with a uneasy sense of regret.

 

So with 2019 comes a new set of goals

| 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…
