Well.. another year has come to an end. Where do I even begin? This year has been such an emotional rollercoaster for me but we've come to the end of it and I'm only looking forward. However, it wouldn't be my normal end of year blog post without sharing some lessons learnt.

My 4 Year Blogging Anniversary - what I've learnt so far.

It's my 4 year blogging anniversary.. wow. Even writing that is just unreal! I remember when I put up my first blog post and thinking this is it, the beginning of my journey and here we are now. I thought it would be nice to share some things I've learnt so far since then and my overall journey.

Dinner at Bistrot Pierre

Over the weekend I went to Birmingham as it was my cousins birthday celebrations! I love coming to Birmingham as I always have the best time, not only visiting family but I genuinely enjoy just being in that city. I haven't done a restaurant review in a long time and I was thoroughly impressed by this place so it was only right to share it with you.

What I've been up to lately..

I can't believe it's been 2 months since my last post.. well, actually I can believe it lol. I had really got back into the swing of things but having settled into my new job and starting my HR course, I'm back to learning how to master the art of balancing everything at once. However I thought a nice way to get into blogging again was to share what I've been up to these last 2 months.

Practicing gratitude..

I recently started reading The Secret by Rhonda Byrne - I'm sure you have all heard about the book. It speaks about the law of attraction and the power behind manifesting the things you want in your life. I haven't finished reading it yet, in fact I've recently just finished reading a chapter about gratitude which inspired me to write this post.

Okay, it wasn't just The Secret that inspired me to write this post, the last few weeks have been such an eye opener for me especially when it comes to the importance of having gratitude. Before 8 weeks ago, I was in a very low place due to the job I was in - I won't get into too much detail but long story short.. I was miserable and the job I was in began to affect my mental health for months and I was unhappy for a very long time.

A much needed weekend away!

Last weekend myself and Daniel went away for the weekend to Bournemouth. Since Thailand, we were obviously dying to get away again and we already decided that a weekend away in Bournemouth would be best.

Look Fantastic X Neom - Beauty Box Review!

It was only a couple weeks ago where I came across this beauty box! I was on Instagram and saw a story from a blogger I follow and she was sharing this amazing deal Look Fantastic had with the brand Neom. After seeing this deal, I knew I just had to get it and so I did.

It's been a while since I shared some of my favourite current songs and I must say, I have a lot of songs that I'm loving at the moment.

Pink and Blue

Last weekend I went to Bournemouth for a weekend away to celebrate my friends birthday! It was a lovely weekend celebrating with the girls and just making the most of the lovely weather we had. We don't all get to see each other much so when we do get together, it's always a great time.

It's been a while since I shared my current favourite skin care products and I'm so happy I've now found some products that work so well with my skin and of course, I had to share with you all.

Taking care of you first..

Having been in and out of blogging for a while now, I've come to the realization that blogging is one thing that keeps me sane lol. Why is that you may ask? I guess when life takes over, you realize how important it is to have an outlet.

Thailand.. part 2!

Our time in Phuket came to an end, and it was time for us to go to the next island.. Koh Samui and onto hotel number 4! This place was highly recommended by Jasmine and Jacob, it was called Mantra Samui. A beautiful, modern hotel located away in such a quiet, peaceful area. You just felt so much at peace being in this place and yes, yet another gorgeous view from our room overlooking the beach. I honestly felt like I was looking at a screen saver or something on google images because the views in Thailand are unreal. Don't even get me started on the sunsets!

Thailand.. week 1!

I can't believe it's already been 3 weeks since I came back from an amazing holiday! Myself, Daniel, my best friend and her partner all went to Thailand for 2 weeks. This was something we all had been planning a year in advance and once it was booked, it made it that much more real!

Living in the moment..

I can't believe it's been over 2 months since my last blog post... so much for being more consistent! Honestly, life really does take over sometimes and I must say, these last 2 months have been rather eventful for me.

An update..

Happy Sunday folks! I've been wanting to write an update post on how I've been dealing with anxiety and just where I'm at with my mental health. If you've been following me for a while or know me personally, you'll know that I've struggled with anxiety for as long as I can remember. It's been a battle but I really wanted to share with you just where I'm at with it all.

A stay at Coombe Abbey..

This weekend myself and Daniel went to stay at the gorgeous Coombe Abbey hotel in Coventry. His mum had given us some money for Christmas towards an experience and this place was something completely different to where we've ever stayed before. Our package was an overnight stay including a 3 course meal and breakfast.

Current read..

Something I love to do in my spare time is read a good book... with a cup of a tea of course! I want to start sharing more posts about the books I'm reading as I personally enjoy reading about this on other blogs.

Happy New Year!

Just like that, it's 2019! I feel like I've blinked and now it's January all over again. If you've been following my blog you'll know that at the end of the year I would write a blog post sharing what my year was like and any lessons learnt throughout that year. I obviously want to keep this annual thing going so let's get into it!
