MY 2019 GOALS

I'm not one to make resolutions particularly but I do think it's quite useful to make some goals, though it doesn't necessarily have to be January! 

→  Start a Creative Arts degree - This year I plan to begin studying with the OCA, this is part of the University for the Creative Arts but you can do it from home which will allow me to continue working as well!
→ Work with more companies - I've had a couple companies reach out to me already this year so I'm really looking forward to working with more brands to create content. → Create a list of book ideas - Writing a book is on my bucket list and although it's not something I plan to do yet, I would like to think of some potential ideas and themes. → Guest posts - I've done a few guest posts previously and would like to do more to build up my portfolio. I'd also like to contribute to places like Buzzfeed since it's a platform I use frequently.

→ 4000 followers on Twitter - I'm almost at 2500 so 4000 is…

4 QUICK AND EASY HAIRSTYLES

There are so many different types of things you can try out on your hair, regardless of the length but today I've decided to go back to basics!

I love the beach waves look, it's so effortless and looks great on both long and short hair. I have naturally wavy hair but in order to tame it I will let it dry naturally almost completely and then I will use a little water and scrunch up the ends, almost to make them bounce. Not too much so that your hair is dripping again and I only go about half way up as I prefer the upper section of my hair to remain straight. Sometimes I'll actually use my straighteners on the top to give a more polished look as well If you have naturally straight hair and find that waves or curves drop out before the day is over then I would definitely recommend using salt spray. I love the Schwarzkopf got2b Beach Matt Salt Spray which is only £3 on Amazon!

One of the best quick hairstyles is of course a quick up do. Now I know that all of us have our own w…

AUTUMN JUMPER HAUL #2

Since I didn't include all of my jumpers in my last Autumn haul, I thought I would do it today as it has definitely got chillier recently! I love this time of the year when it's starting to feel Christmassy and you can wear all the cosy jumpers! Like before I will similar jumpers to the ones I have featured, as these exact ones probably aren't available now!
This Black and White striped jumper goes perfectly with jeans for a simple and sophisticated look. It's definitely a slightly tighter fit so if you like more over sized jumpers I'd recommend you go up a size or two! This was from H&M a while ago now, for about £15 but I'm sure you can find similar from a few places as stripes are so in right now! I like both of these options on Dorothy Perkins and Asos.

I love wearing thinner jumpers at Autumn when the temperature is dropping, they're so easy to chuck on and you can layer up as well if needed. This dusky pink jumper was a great bargain from good old…

BABY NAME TAG

Now I am definitely not planning to have any kids until many many years down the line, however I have seen 'The Baby Tag' grow in popularity and thought I'd give it a go today! I'm not sure where this started and I do not take credit for these questions but good on you! I'm really picky and indecisive with names (I would literally spend hours just choosing a name for a Nintendog back in the day) so naming an actual physical human is something I find very difficult, however I gave it my best shot!

1) Favourite name from UK top 100 (2017) Amelia & Archie - I don't particularly like to choose names beginning with the same letter but I really like these names and think they would suit someone throughout their life, there are always those names that you associate purely with young kids or elderly people but I think these are pretty versatile.

2) Least favourite from UK top 100 (2017)
Heidi & Jayden - I don't like to pick out names I don't like because …

OCTOBER MONTHLY FAVOURITES

Happy November everyone! I sort of feel like I spend this entire month counting down the days until December as I'm a lover of Christmas but I'm looking forward to the weather getting crisper. October seems to have flown by but here are some of my favourites from the month!

Food - Not the healthiest option but I love to snack on some Sensations Poppadoms whilst watching some Netflix. I had eaten the Lime and Coriander Chutney ones multiple times, however recently I had the Mango and Red Chilli flavour and I have to say I am a big fan of both! The poppadoms are a nice change from your conventional bag of crisps and I love both flavour combinations. I usually share them with my boyfriend and we always end up racing through them!

Music - After taking time off to write music I was so glad to see that Sam Smith had released new music. Technically 'Too Good at Goodbyes' was actually released in September but I've been loving it throughout October, as well as 'Pray'…
