30 Things I Love About Winter




I must admit something: I am not a huge fan of winter.  I don't like the cold, and I hate the shorter days and the longer nights.  Summer is my favourite season, but there are a number of things that I love about winter, and there are a number of things that I look forward to once the winter season arrives, such as:

1. Hot chocolate
2. Snow - if it comes!
3. Cosy nights in
5. Knitwear and wollies
6. Winter Wonderland!
7. Autumn/Winter clothing collections
8. Winter parties
10. Leather boots
13. Dark lip colours - purple and red shades are my favourite
14. Tartan/dogtooth/gingham prints
15. Warm hearty meals - i.e. a traditional roast dinner
16. Winter cocktails
17. Fresh and crisp cold air
18. Late night shopping
19. A walk in the park
20. Frosty mornings
21. Winter accessories
22. Staying comfortable and snug in my PJs.
23. No annoying bugs and insects!
24. Dark nail polish shades
25. Seasonal hot drinks
26. Fairy lights
27. Tropical vacations
28. Jogging bottoms

Autumn Wardrobe Essentials


If you're like me, then you're wardrobe is in need of some new additions!

I've been searching fashion retailers for autumn items to add to my wardrobe. It's time to get warm and feel snug so my summer dresses just won't do for the next few months. I need new jumpers, gloves, coats, jackets, scarves and trousers.

Autumn is here, and it's time to update my wardrobe, so I've picked out some essential items for this season.

What are your favourite wardrobe essentials?

My Favourite Blogger Mail Posts and Videos


I love blogger mail!

Not that I get much of it (booooo.)

However, I love watching bloggers receive mail (yes I'm slightly nosy.) I don't buy or receive presents but receive blogger mail from time to time is like experiencing Christmas all year round. Watching YouTube videos and reading posts on blogger mail and po box hauls also keeps me in the know, and it keeps me aware of product releases and upcoming trends.

Positive Affirmations


Having low self-esteem is something that I've always struggled with. I've had this issue since I was a little kid and it's something that's had a detrimental impact on my life. I've had CBT in order to deal with it, but I had such a rubbish experience with that.

10 Productive Things To Do This Weekend


The weekends are the best part of the week.

I work Monday to Friday from 8am (or 9am) until 5pm (or 6pm) so I use the weekends as the ultimate opportunity to unwind. However, I make sure that I spend the time productively. It's nice to relax and have lie ins but it's just as important to make sure that I'm spending the time wisely, so here are 10 thing to do on the weekend:

1. Go to the cinema or watch a film at home. Alternatively, watch a theatre show.
2. Meet up with a friend. Go for a coffee or a meal.
3. Declutter and re-organise your bedroom.
4. Do the laundry.
5. Read a book.
6. Visit the countryside (or another city if you are from the city.)
7. Host a dinner party.
8. Read newspapers and magazines on a Sunday morning.
9. Go to the beach or funfair.
10. Blog!
