2 YEARS OF BLOGGING!

As of today, I've officially been blogging for 2 years which seems so strange to say! I feel like I've shared a fair amount but thought I would do a get to know me better post as it's a bit of fun! 

Favourite film?
 I can never seem to choose just one favourite but I'm pretty into mystery thriller type films - especially ones with a twist! For instance, I love things like Shutter Island and Inception, anything that keeps you guessing or has an ambiguous ending. I also enjoy a good comedy, one that springs to mind is Hot Fuzz as it also has that twist element. 
What is my Zodiac sign and do I agree with it?
Well, I was born on March 10th, making me a Pisces. I wouldn’t say I’m overly clued up about horoscopes and astrology, I do find it interesting though! In terms of me relating to the general description of a Pisces, there are some aspects that describe me well for sure. In particular, the creative, charismatic, intuitive and adaptable traits describe me pretty well. A…

BLOGMAS: SECRET SANTA


This year I participated in a Secret Santa for bloggers which was organised by the lovely Casey. Despite a few hiccups, it was a lovely thing to be a part of because I was able to connect with so many new bloggers and we all have a great support system now! You can check out Casey's post here if you'd like to see what everyone else got too as she kindly provided links to all of our blogs!

My gifts arrived quite a while ago, packaged in some really festive Christmas Pudding wrapping paper and I really had to resist the urge to open them, I always used to be one of those kids that would feel around and try to work out what a present was when I had to wait to open it, haha! My Secret Santa was Eloise who blogs over at The Longing Wanderer. She absolutely nailed my gifts and I couldn't be happier with them so I can't thank her enough!


Firstly I opened two bath bombs which smelt amazing even before opening them, I quickly recognised that they were from Lush which really excited me as I love their products. I received the 'Luxury Lush Pud' which is a Christmas classic and one I always like to use, as well as the new 'Cheery Christmas' bath bomb which is so pretty. I always enjoy colourful bath bombs and plus they smell so good too, so am definitely looking forward to using these!


Next, I opened a set of two travel notebooks which will be perfect for detailing all my adventures. It was so nice of Eloise to put so much thought into the gifts as she saw that I hope to travel! I also really like the design of the notebooks, I think the background of the map is really cool and the quotes are obviously perfect for travelling!


I also received a Shearer Candle in the scent 'Cinnamon Spice' which couldn't have been a better choice for me, it's the perfect scent for Christmas and I can't wait to burn it. I've not tried any of the Shearer Candles before but I really like the packaging and love the blue colour of this one. I'll definitely be checking out their other ones now, thanks to Eloise!


Lastly, I was given a set of Watercolour Brush Pens which was something I put on my wishlist so was so pleased to open it. I really enjoy being creative and want to experiment more with calligraphy so have had my eye on these for a while now. There is a great range of colours and I love working with watercolour so I'll definitely enjoy using them over Christmas!


Once again, a massive thank you to Eloise for these amazing gifts as I love them all and was definitely lucky to have you as my Secret Santa. I would really like to be a part of the Bloggers Secret Santa next year as I also really enjoyed buying gifts to send to another lovely blogger too, I'm not sure if she's opened them yet so I won't spoil anything but hopefully, she likes them!

30 SHOWS TO WATCH ON NETFLIX

As an avid user of Netflix, I am more than aware of the time spent trying to find something rather than actually watching anything. I've gone through many different series on there so I thought I'd share some here! I know there is quite a few I've missed off that people would put at the top of their list and I need to get round to watching them for sure!
Breaking Bad  I'm sure most people will have watched this already but if not, now is the time. I put it off for way too long but it lived up to my expectations. Prison Break  This series is tense and will make you gasp at how Michael Schofield's brain works, I'm also really glad that a Season 6 has been confirmed. Pretty Little Liars  One of my favourite series of all time, the perfect combination of high school drama and a thrilling mystery. Gossip Girl  Another classic teen drama that follows Manhatten's elite students and their various scandals through an anonymous gossip site.  Riverdale  Based on the Archie Co…

THE AUTUMN TAG

I haven't done a tag in quite a while and always find them great fun, so I was pleased when I saw that Michael had tagged me in The Autumn Tag! Essentially this tag is a set of questions all about, you guessed it - Autumn! Definitely go and check out Michael's post here as he had some great answers, thanks again for tagging me! 
What signifies the start of Autumn for you?
Once it gets chillier out, the evenings get darker earlier and the leaves start changing. Also by October 1st I always feel ready for Autumn.
What is your favourite Autumn scent?
I love things like cinnamon, cedarwood, black pepper - anything spicy, woody or earthy really.
What is your favourite Autumn colour?
Burgundy is one of my favourite colours this time of the year, a lot of my outfits tend to include something burgundy around Autumn. I also love all the colours the leaves turn too, it looks so pretty!                                                Are you a fan of a Pumpkin Spice Latte?
This may come as a…

JANUARY MONTHLY FAVOURITES

Well, once again January has lasted twice as long as every other month does (seriously though, why does it always feel like that?) Anyway, I thought I'd share the things I've enjoyed during the start of 2019. 
Creativity 
After receiving a new camera for Christmas, I've enjoyed taking photos whenever I can. I definitely need to get out and about to test it properly but it's been great just experimenting! I'm really hoping that we get some good snow because I'd love to get some great photos of that, I always think it looks so pretty! However, if all else fails, you can always count on a good sunset for a perfect photo opportunity. 
Food
I feel like I have to mention all leftover snacks from Christmas firstly as it's always a good day when you remember you've got a whole chocolate orange to eat still. I also am a big fan of fudge in general and hadn't had any for ages so was pleased when my mum picked up some of the Rydale Farm Gold Collection all butt…
