A Winter Hike

Hello everyone! I hope you're all well and enjoying your time off. We have finally finished all the turkey and all the other leftovers, but I am still craving pigs in blankets and chocolate. Why does Christmas always seem to fly by?! As much I'd love to celebrate Christmas 365 days of the year, I'm sure there would be slight pandemonium throughout the world and nearly everyone would go bankrupt but maybe it would be worth it... No? Just me then.

Anyway, back to the matter in hand, and that is of course a brand new blog post for all you people! I recently blogged about the surprise and sheer horror of me actually getting dressed everyday during the Christmas period and something else I've done on a daily basis is go for a run or a hike! Trust me, this is even more shocking than me getting dressed. I feel like I need to have a sit down just thinking about it but alas, straight after I've finished this post I plan on going on (brace yourselves) another run!

My Christmas Outfits

Hello everyone! Three posts in a row? Wow, it seems that I really am back into the swing of blogging. My New Year's Resolution was actually to blog more. 2014 hasn't even begun yet and I already seem to have conquered that. Let's just hope I haven't peeked too soon. 

Just a quick post today. During the festive period, I tend to spend most of my time in my pyjamas. Obviously I get properly dressed for christmas day, new year's year and of course when I go out but other than that it's all about comfy pjs and hoodies! It's weird, I adore fashion, would love to have a career in fashion and love planning my outfits for both college and whenever I'm going out, so the fact that I don't normally get dressed for a good three weeks during the Christmas holidays is slightly odd (but still definitely needed!). This year however, I am yet to spend an entire day in my pyjamas! I've either been out or had friends round so I've been dressed everyday, and even when I haven't been out, I've at least been in comfy clothes instead of pyjamas. Because of this, I thought it would be fun to share my outfits from the past three days with you guys.

Christmas Fun

Hello everyone! I hope you're all well that you've had a wonderful few days full of Christmas spirit. I'm still coming to terms with the fact that we know have a whole year to wait before celebrating Christmas again. On a positive note, at least we still have a few lazy December days and New Years Eve to look forward to.
Today's blog post is all about what I did on both Christmas and Boxing Day, what I ate and, most importantly, what I wore! 

I'll start with Christmas Eve night. My Mam spent the majority of the day cooking, both for us and for some clients whereas I spent the majority of the day deciding what I was going to wear on Christmas day and having a bit of a pampering session. Completely different days but at least we were both doing things we love! Thankfully I didn't have to wrap any presents as they'd all been either bought online or wrapped and put under the tree about two agos. My Mam on the other hand woke up at about 10am on Christmas morning and realised that she hadn't wrapped my Christmas presents. I wasn't impressed, so not impressed in fact that I made her go straight back to her room and wrap them before she had the chance to do anything else. What a Scrooge, ey?!

Back to blogging and a Christmas Haul!

Hello everyone! I hope you're all well and that you all had a wonderful Christmas and if you don't celebrate Christmas, then I hope you had a wonderful day anyway!

I had planned on doing Blogmas this year, and I think it's safe to say that I failed. Well, I half failed. I managed to complete about half but then exams fully took over and I had time for absolutely nothing, other than studying. I barely even slept. In two weeks, I think I slept an average of four hours each night? I had a grand total of 16 exams in that short space of time and no sooner had I finished exam, it was on to the next one. My life literally consisted of college and exams, home, study until about 1am, sleep until my alarm went off at 6, study and then set off for college at 7:55 before beginning the whole process again. From the time I went to bed until the time I got up, I didn't actually manage to sleep that much. I was shattered but would suddenly jolt awake reciting definitions and formulas in my head. Yes, it does sound like I was going mad and, to be honest, that's exactly what it felt like! I'd love to do blogmas this year, but maybe I will have to write the posts well in advance. Maybe I should start tomorrow! haha

Anyway, now is the perfect time to get back into blogging. I figured a good way to start is to do a bit of a Christmas haul and then tomorrow, I will be uploading another post all about my Christmas and Boxing day. Hope you enjoy!

Favourite memories - July to December

☃ ❄

Hi, everyone! Today's post is the second round of my 2013 memories, this time ranging from July to November. As we're only a third of the way through December and I'm currently drowning in exams, I haven't actually taken that many photos this month, hence why December will not be included in this post. The only photos I've taken are ones' that I have used in a blog post or of my Christmas tree. I'm sure that come January, I will be filling you in with all my December memories.

2013 - Favourite memories - January to June

☃ ❄

Hello everyone! I hope you're all having a lovely December and getting into the Christmas spirit. If not, then why the hell not?! Get excited!! Haha

Today's post is going to be all about some of my favourite memories of 2013, from January through to June. I'm some one that loves to take photos and document memories, but this post was actually a lot harder than I thought it was going to be. I guess having so many photos and so many files on my laptop, as well as so many good memories this year made it hard to pick out just a few choice moments but I've done my best to narrow it down! No doubt the minute I click publish, I will suddenly remember so many brilliant things that happened this year that I'd forgotten about, but that's just sod's law I guess. Anyway, here goes:
