So in my last blog post, I shared the different phases I went through during lockdown. I have reached another stage since writing that post and it’s the online shopping / buying phase. I have bought a few things online in the past week and I have felt a bit guilty about it. To turn this around, I thought I’d share the businesses and brands I want to support during this time.
I wasn’t planning on writing a blog post during this time but I’ve found writing a bit therapeutic. New Zealand has been on a lockdown for roughly 5 weeks and this is my 6th week of being at home. I have gone through a rollercoaster of thoughts and emotions during this time and I thought I’d put them down here and reflect on the past few weeks. I’m sure what I have felt during this unusual time is not unique as we’re all in a similar boat.
I know you might be over the new year resolutions posts by now but I wanted my first blog post in 2020 to be about my goals for the year. It’s 2020 and I turned 30 which is a milestone and instead of dreading turning 30, I’m going to embrace it and be grateful that I’ve been alive for three decades. In this post, I also want to talk about how I want to move forward with this blog as I’ve been thinking about it for quite some time.
Back in June, I shared my lounge decor when I finally finished updating the room. One weekend, I had a strong urge to re-do my bedroom. I’ve been wanting to change it up for quite some time but I was stuck on what I wanted it to be like. After getting rid of some old furniture and changing the layout of my room, I’m finally happy with it!
I posted it on my Instagram stories and I did get a few questions on where I bought some things so I’ve put it all in today’s blog post.
It’s been two years since I posted about my lounge decor and it has changed so much from that old blog post. I’m finally at a point where I am so happy with my lounge and I’m excited to share it.
I’ll go through the changes in detail so if you want to know more, continue down below. Continue reading
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.
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.
