After a massive break from blogging, basically lasting from just before lockdown up until now, I’ve decided to put a little love and care back into my blog. There were lots of contributing factors to the lack of posts, but I think mainly living in Groundhog day is the biggie. I mean how can you get the motivation or even any ideas on what to post when you’re repeating similar days/ not having too many exciting events through the year to look forward to and write about. That being said, although 2020 has been a shitter, there have been a few fun things happening…
I’ve had the chance to temporarily move back home to the Outer Hebrides. I can’t think of a better place to be while the world is all going through this craziness. Its been so nice to spend a lot of time with family and keep my normal work routine while on WFH – without work I think I would have lost my sanity.
Ya gal turned 26. I feel like we have all mutually agreed to pause our age since the year has been an absolute write off. But also I was super relieved that lockdown had eased in time for me to move home before my bday so I could enjoy it with family.
Finally we made it to February.! Whyyyy is January suuch a long month!? SO killer. That being said I decided to make February my new January and start all my new year plans and resolutions from this month on, I mean why make January any worse right….
So if you want to see whats on my 2020 resolution list, keep reading…
Soo what beats a Saturday Brunch with a Gal pal and some vino… answer – nothing. A couple weekends ago I finally got round to visiting Cognito on the Corner and it totally did not disappoint. In fact I 100% will be rushing back. Mainly to try out their cocktail menu. But also the food was pretty great too.
This Thursday I was lucky enough to take a trip to the Jo Malone store for the Poppy & Barley Launch night. *PR EVENT* I mean who doesn’t love a glass of fizz and all the unreal Jo Malone scents after a busy Thursday at work…
SO at the start of July, the night before I headed off home for a fortnight, I was lucky enough to start my holiday with a trip along to the Body Shops Summer Event! Who can say no to a wee pamper night and hearing about all the latest products with prosecco in hand?!
Earlier in the week I arrived back in Abz from a fab long weekend in Amsterdam. My best pal and I took a girls weekend trip to see Maroon 5 and had the most chilled weekend away. I loved every minute of it. And can I just say that we absolutely aced the transport system there. I am super proud of us both.
I’ve decided to do a new little blog series. a monthly round up of things I’ve been up to and things I’ve been loving. So having said that, welcome to Mays Edition…
What Have I Been Watching
So this months obsessions consisted of binge watching Jane the Virgin (why am I so late to this party, I am addicted) , watching Ru Paul Drag Races final and starting to watch a new drama series on BBC called Years and Years.
So last weekend was pay weekend and I decided to treat myself to a small beauty haul.
Most of these are first time buys for me, so I’m excited to try and test these out. I picked everything up from Superdrug, Boots and even a couple things from Primark. I’ll update you in a future post on my thoughts. But for now let me share with you my little beauty finds!
So a cozy wee pamper night post was needed as moving flat and training in a new job is a looootta work let me tell you! So finally I have a pretty chilled weekend. And actually my last quiet weekend for another month. So I though I would let you all in on how I unwind on a Sunday night before my busy week ahead.
