Monthly Goals // February 2019

It’s February, can you believe how quick the year is going? I have had a lovely January, I hope the past month has treated you well. Today I am going to be reflecting on the Goals I set myself at the beginning of January. I love reflecting and creating new Goals each month, there’s something about it that makes me more determined to achieve them.

There are no resolutions for me, it’s all about setting Goals to succeed throughout the year. My Monthly Goals always relate to the bigger picture of my Personal Goals and Blogging Goals for the year. I love creating new Goals, it’s just something about them, it also makes sure you’re on target and also it’s helpful to keep remembering the bigger picture and those Goals.

12 Days of Blogmas #10 // Bloggers Secret Santa 2018

I love a good Secret Santa, it’s a good way of spreading Christmas cheer at the same time as having fun with the people around you. Last year, I noticed a couple of Bloggers Secret Santa, unfortunately, I was too late to participate. I’ve heard some great things about it and it’s great to spread Christmas cheer within the blogging community.

We’re all one big family so it’s great to gift to one another as well as sending Christmas cards. This year, luck was on my side and I joined the Bloggers Secret Santa hosted by Casey over at casestreetx. I was very excited to join and couldn’t wait to start chatting with the other bloggers as a group message was set up on Twitter.

12 Days of Blogmas #9 // Small Business Gift Guide

This Christmas, why not visit a small business to purchase your gifts from, over the past couple of months I’ve brought from a couple of small businesses. There are so many good businesses out there that hopefully will allow you to shop for almost anyone. Also, I don’t know about you but I swear it leaves such a good feeling in yourself.

I always try to explore places such as Etsy to come across gifts, with a simple search you can uncover a variety of gifts. Just be careful you don’t spend the whole day searching, once you start, it’s very hard to stop. I have got lost in Etsy a couple of times, thankfully I do purchase a couple of things, maybe more than I should have.

Today, I wanted to share with you a couple of small businesses in this handy Small Business Gift Guide.

I hope you’re having a lovely December, it’s not long now until Christmas. I cannot believe where December has gone! I’m really excited and can’t wait to visit Plymouth, it’s always weird going back home, in a good way though. Today I am sharing The Winter Tag, let’s get into the festive mood.

I always find them a good way to get to know a blogger and also I love thinking about the questions. Sometimes they can really make you think, in the past, I’ve really struggled to answer and find a good answer. Also, they’re really good for spreading the love in the blogosphere by tagging fellow bloggers.

Kathleen Natural Tranquil Fields Review

I’m always interested in trying new products, as long as it features my favourite scents, I will give it a go. An email recently dropped in my inbox from Kathleen Natural introducing their Mini Bubble Bath and Shower Gel with a request to review a collection of my choice. There are three different moods to choose from; Citrus Cheer, Tranquil Fields and Sensual Rose.

Kathleen has released mini size versions of their luxurious, nourishing, delicate body care collection including Roll-on Fragrance Oil and Mini Bubble Bath and Shower Gel. Each collection is scented with three blended, pure essential oils – a top note, heart note and base note – to cover every mood. Of course, a travel size is perfect for on the move.

I chose Tranquil Fields because not only do I love Lavender and Vanilla scents, I wanted something to lift my mood and prepare me for the cold and horrible weather this Winter.

‘Tis the Season of Boots

There’s a pair of boots for every occasion and as soon as Sunday 23 September arrived, there’s even more of a reason to wear boots instead of shoes. Autumn is definitely the season of boots, there is no doubt about it! There are no better shoes to wear during the colder weather than boots. They keep your feet lovely and warm, you can even wear fluffy socks with them.

What I love the most about boots is that there pretty much a pair for every outfit and occasion. I am pretty addicted to boots and as soon as the weather starts getting colder, I bring out my boots and start wearing them. One way to get Winter ready is to purchase some new boots, an online store where you can purchase all kinds of boots? Yes, please!

Caring for my feet with Flexitol

Your feet are the most important part of your body, your feet touch the ground whenever you’re standing, walking or running, and they are extensions of the legs. They are the foundation of your body, which means keeping your feet healthy can help keep you healthy. I’ve never really looked after my feet, even when I had a job in retail where I’m on my feet most of the day.

Although your feet are out of sight, you should treat them as though they were still on display. Winter is now only around the corner, during the Winter feet can dry out, leading to cracked heels and peeling skin. I have always struggled with dry and cracked skin with my heels definitely going through the worst. For the last couple of weeks, I’ve been trying some products from Flextitol and I want to share my thoughts with you.

In total, I received four different products from Flexitol, Hand Balm, Cuticle & Nail Cream, Heel Balm and Moisturising Foot Cream. I recently shared my thoughts on Hand Balm and Cuticle & Nail Cream, they’ve been good to keep my hands feeling refresh during all these different weather conditions. Today I am sharing my thoughts with you on the Heel Balm and Moisturising Foot Cream.

This year has been a mixture of different weather conditions, from our Winter and the Beast from the East and our Summer hotter than Spain. Across the United Kingdom, we have all experienced this weather for some we’re able to cope but for others, it has been horrible weather conditions.

We sometimes forget to look after our skin, it’s something we need to start doing more.

5 Places I Would Love to Travel to

I have always loved to travel, there’s just something about travelling to a different country that makes me smile! Even though I’m 22 years old, I have only been abroad to three places, Gran Canaria, Majorca and Italy, all within five years. I would love to travel to more places but with money problems, it’s definitely hard too!

Travelling abroad definitely has its perks and reasons for enjoying, Yasmine has pretty much been everywhere but for her, she would always go abroad every year. Where on the flip side for me, I didn’t go abroad until I met her and I went with her family. I thought today I would share with you a couple of places I would love to travel to.

There are some great places in the world and I want to see them! Shall we begin?
