It’s been a while since my last blog post. It actually feels weird that I’m sat down with my laptop writing about this but I want to share why I have been silent over here. A lot happened the past few months and now I feel ready to share how I’ve been because for the first time in a long time, I actually feel like myself again.
Oh what a difference a year makes! 2018 has really flown by and a third of the year is done. Last year was quite an interesting year for me. 2017 was a year of discovery, a few ups and downs but 2018 has been amazing so far. January to April has been the best months so I wanted to collate my ‘highlights’ as I’ve done in the past.
If you’ve been a follower of my blog or other social media, you’d know how much I love Kmart. Kmart is one of my favourite places to shop because you can basically get anything there for such an affordable price. It’s been a while since my last Kmart haul so today is a mix of clothing, homewares, beauty and travel pieces. I also got some on sale which is even better.
I mostly share my beauty favourites here on my blog but to change it up a bit, I wanted to share some of the items I’ve been loving that don’t really fit into the beauty category. This favourites post has a good mixture from technology, health and fitness to books and TV shows. So if you want to know what I’ve been loving recently, check out below.
These are fairly new additions in my life but I wanted to share this while Clearly still has their buy one get one free promo. If you wear glasses and wanting cool new spares, check out Clearly and grab yourself a good deal. This post isn’t sponsored and I bought these myself but I wanted to share them as glasses are usually so expensive to buy.
One of my goals this year is to read more. I bought quite a few books last year and in the past few weeks since the Christmas break and I hope I go through them all. Today’s post is all about my current reading list and ones that are by my bedside table.
I have been a terrible blogger as the last time I posted here was back in October. The later part of the year is always so hectic and I also lost my blogging mojo. I’m hoping to get it back this year so to start afresh (even though this post is also a bit late), I want to look back on 2017 which has been a year of change.
2017 was by far, the hardest year as it truly tested my strength but it also turned out to be the best. It made me a stronger and better person. I took every opportunity that was presented to me and it was the year that I really felt like I was being myself. In a way, my break up was like me being set free from the anchor that weighed me down. I was finally able to live my life how I should’ve.
I wanted to write about my September Highlights/Recap because it was such a busy but great month. A lot of different things happened such as blog events, catch up with friends and eating lots of food.
It’s been a while since I’ve shared a homeware haul here on the blog and for some time, I didn’t really buy too many homewares since I was focused on getting new lounge furniture instead. Now that I’m done with that, I’ve slowly moved on to my kitchen and upgrading a few things. This haul is mainly from Kmart and The Warehouse. If you’re after affordable home stuff, check out my post below.
This week, from 9th – 15th of October is Mental Health Awareness Week and today is the World Mental Health Day. I’ve had this post sitting in my drafts and I never thought I’d publish it because I don’t share overly personal things here. However, I don’t think I’ll have a more fitting day to post this and it’s about time we stop feeling embarrassed or scared talking about mental health.
I’ve had a tumultuous year to say the least and one of the biggest things I’ve realised is the importance of making sure I keep my mental health in check. Today, I’ll share how I’ve dealt with my mental health and how I boost my wellbeing.
