It’s been so long!

Hi everyone

So I’ve just realised that it has been 2 weeks since i last wrote a blog post, I need to get back into it, i spent this morning catching up on a weeks worth of blog posts from everyone because i haven’t been able to keep up to date with them.

I have been working loads and last week worked over 57 hours, so i was feeling pretty exhausted from that. The other thing which is probably the main thing that has stopped me from writing posts was me and my boyfriend of 8+ years splitting up, it effected me quite badly for a few weeks now and it was only a few days ago that i started feeling better about everything and realised i don’t need him to be happy. I’ve been getting intro my fitness, going out running regularly and doing workouts at home, this has improved my mood a lot.

I really want to get back to blogging more regularly as i enjoy it so much so thought i would start a blogging challenge so i can get back into writing posts that way, I’ve done the 30 day blogging challenge already so thought i would do the Harry Potter challenge this time. Posts for that will be starting tomorrow.

I look forward to getting back into blogging more and coming up with more blog post ideas.

 

Shopping haul

So yesterday I decided to go shopping as I wanted to get some new trainers,I had no intention of buying anything else but I got the trainers that I wanted and then ended up spending more money after that.

Because of this I decided to do a haul to show what I got.

Sports Direct

Nike Flex 2016 running trainers-£30

This was the reason I went shopping in the first place and like i said this was going to be the only thing that i bought. There were so many trainers to choose from but i seen these and wanted them instantly,i love the colours,and i went for a run using them and they are so  comfortable to wear.

TK Maxx

iPhone 7 sports sleeve-£5.99

I have one of these sleeves but can no longer use it as it was for the iPhone 5,so I needed a new one. I only went in TK Maxx to have a look what they had, I seen this and had to get it at such a good price and its pink.

HMV

Audio mixx play 1 wireless Bluetooth earphones-£12.99

I got these more for when I go running as i hate having wires flying around getting in my way, so these are perfect, and again there pink. I used them when i went running yesterday and they are brilliant, the sound quality is great and they connect up to my phone really quickly.

Superdrug

Rimmel make up was on 3 for 2 offer so i got the following as I’m getting low anyway

IMG_0391

Rimmel wake me up foundation-303 true nude-£8.99

Rimmel clear complexion setting powder-£3.99

Rimmel camouflage collection extra 3D lash mascara-£4.99

Well that’s all that I bought on my little shopping trip spent so much more money than i was planning on spending but i bought stuff that i needed/will use so can’t tell myself off too much for it.

 

 

YouTube!!

So I’ve done it…I’ve made a YouTube channel…and posted a video!!

I wanted to make a video to go alongside my blog post on my May bullet journal set up which you can read here.

Here is the video that i made, check it out.

And here is a link to my YouTube channel.

I want to do more videos on my bullet journal as well as my blog posts, and will be doing other videos as well.

May Bullet Journal set-up

I had a lot of fun setting up my bullet journal for this month, so thought I would write a post to show you all how I set up for the month of May. Its not exactly how I want it right now but I’m working on it and will get it how I want it with time.

I’m using the Moleskine classic squared notebook.

IMG_0323

I started with making a key for my bullet journal that I can follow, and then moved on to my index pages.

IMG_0324IMG_0325

For the first actual page I done a year overview for 2017.

IMG_0326

I had to make a books to read page as I have so many books that I want to read, and once I have read each one I will colour the books in.

IMG_0327

Next is my May title page

IMG_0328I then have my monthly overview and habit tracker.

IMG_0329IMG_0330

I am keeping track of when I drink plenty of water each day, eat well, check Instagram, twitter and WordPress, publish a new blog post, and when I have read my book and eat breakfast as I very rarely eat in the morning but want to try and eat breakfast more.

I then made a page for my blog this includes blog post ideas that I have had during the month and then a blog stats tracker in the corner to track at the beginning of each month.

IMG_0331

This is followed by a page with goals that I have set myself.

And then the weekly spreads which aren’t perfect and I’ve got to add things to the weeks ahead as I have done each week of May already, and I can just add bits that I want when I want to.

IMG_0333IMG_0334IMG_0336IMG_0337IMG_0338

There is so much more that I want to gradually add into my bullet journal as there is other things that I know I want to keep track of, but that’s the best thing with a bullet journal you can add and take away things as much as you want, you only need to add what you need.

My weekend 6th and 7th May 2017!

I had the weekend off from work so I stayed with my boyfriend for the weekend.

Saturday

On Saturday we spent the day fishing,it was a really nice sunny day and it was so peaceful and relaxing to be sat outside for the day not having to worry about anything else.Even had sausage sandwiches for lunch and then burgers for dinner whilst fishing with endless cups of tea throughout the day.We packed up at about 8:30pm and went home,and just spent the rest of the night relaxing and watching TV.


Sunday

Sunday was more of a chilled relaxed day, I hadn’t had much sleep on Saturday night so I was really tired and not really up for doing anything.

We went to a local café for breakfast, which was delicious.

We then went to our friends house as it had been his birthday on Saturday but  due to us fishing we hadn’t been able to go and see him so went round Sunday as we had a present for him, we stayed there for the afternoon, then went down to where we had been fishing on Saturday as a friend was fishing there, and stayed there for about an hour before going home, then we just relaxed for the rest of the evening watching TV.

April Favourites!

Today is the 1st May, where is the year going??

But 1st day of the month means it’s time for a monthly favourites post…so here are my April favourites.

Ed Sheeran-Divide

Divide_coverI have been absolutely loving this album and listening to it non-stop, even in my boyfriends car, so he now knows all the songs just as well as me haha, but he does like Ed Sheeran so I can get away with playing his music in the car.

Fast and Furious 8

fast-and-furious-8

I went to the cinema for work to watch this film, I love all the films in the series so really wanted to see this anyway. The film was so good with a good storyline, but was definitely missing something with no Paul Walker this time(RIP).

Lee Stafford chopstick styler

chopstick stylerI have wanted these for a while but have never got them, my boyfriend bought them as an Easter present, and I love them. The styler produces really tight curls which look incredible.

Lindt Bunny

14789_XXX_v1

Lindt is my favourite chocolate and I love when the gold bunnys go into the shops, my boyfriend bought me one of these for Easter and then I somehow ended up with another two as well haha, all of these have very sadly been eaten and I haven’t got any left.

Nivea express hydration primer

IMG_0294I have already mentioned this in a post recently, but I have really been loving this during April as my skin had been felling really dry, after using this for a few weeks my skin has returned back to normal and doesn’t feel dry at all, so I have been using this everyday under my makeup.
