Falling In Love With My Style

Happy Valentines Day!

I wanted to do a bit of a chatty post today on something I’ve been wanting to post about for a while - style. When I started this blog way back when, I wanted a place to post about fashion and lifestyle mainly. I dabbled in beauty blogging but that just never worked out well, so I’m not surprised I mostly dropped that topic. But somewhere along the line I also stopped talking about fashion on here. And I miss that.

 

How I Used My Bullet Journal in Jan & Feb Set Up

Doesn’t January just feel like the longest month ever? It’s my least favourite time of the year, but actually I’ve really tried to make this month more enjoyable and I have succeeded! I had an amazing trip to Oslo, got to see my uni friends, my mum, and spend more time with Luke. All in all, it’s been an above average month :)

A Winter Break in Norway

Last week, Luke and I set off at a ridiculous time in the morning (1:30am) to head to the airport and fly to Norway! I booked the flights for Luke’s birthday back in September so it’s been a long time getting excited for this winter getaway.

I know a week away in January is perhaps not the norm

4 Years

Over 4 years ago, I sat down on my bed in my first year uni accommodation with a notebook and pen and scribbled down some ideas. I'd been reading blogs for a while and decided I wanted to write my own one. 

My 2018 Bullet Journal Setup

New year calls for a new journal, right?

There's something about the change of calendar that feels like starting afresh, and though I still had a few pages left in my old journal, I wanted to start a new one anyway. 

#Blogmas - Self Care in Winter

While this time of year can be filled with joy for so many, it also can be incredibly tough for many others. It can be isolating when you’re not quite feeling it, and everyone around you is super happy.

#Blogmas - Birmingham Christmas Markets

Last year, Luke and I spent a day in Birmingham before Christmas visiting the markets, ice skating and doing some Christmas shopping. It was still very early in our relationship, and I loved that date so much. This year we decided to go back and visit the markets again, and it was just as much fun.

#Blogmas - How To Use Your Bullet Journal At Christmas

Can you believe it's only two weeks until Christmas day? It's definitely come round quick. And as much as I am feeling festive, I'm definitely not prepared. I still have presents to buy and wrap, cards to write and an outfit to buy for Christmas parties. It's going to be a busy couple of weeks!

Of course I'm using my bullet journal to keep me a little bit organised.

#Blogmas - A White Black Forest

2 years ago when I was living in Germany, my friends and I booked an AirBnB in the heart of the Schwarzwald (Black Forest) for a weekend away. We rented a car and drove down the Autobahn right into the hills late November.

#Blogmas - Christmas Photography Tips

Do you know another thing I love about Christmas? Getting lots of pretty shots. A bit of bokeh with fairy lights and lots of depth of field is my kinda vibe, and Christmas allows for lots of arty shots like this. I could photograph decorated trees for days. 

#Blogmas - A Festive Bucket List

I love a bucket list, especially a seasonal one. Life just seems to go quicker and quicker and often if I don’t make a solid effort to appreciate what’s going on in the world, it passes by all too fast and another season has changed before you know it.

How I Used My Bullet Journal In November

Can you believe it’s the end of November already? Where has this month gone…

Although I am rather looking forward to December, not just because tomorrow morning I get to open my advent calendar, but I’m also ready to embrace the festive season.

Minimalism?

Minimalism is a concept that has been 'trending' for a while. Have you already heard about it?

At first, I admit, I didn't get it. A minimalist lifestyle? Why? Why would you want less stuff when you can have more? 

In the face of consumerism and ever-growing materialism, of course we might think this way.

Fuerteventura Photo Diary

Last month I went on holiday to Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands, and it was one of the prettiest yet unusual looking places I've ever been to. The different scenery can be attributed to the fact that it's a volcanic island.
