The British Tag

I think tags are one of the most fun posts to do and to read, they're a bit of a laugh but you can often find a lot about someone's personality through them! I've seen quite a few people do 'The British Tag' so thought that today I'd share my answers! I'm not sure who came up with this originally but credit goes to them for the idea, though I've also added a few of my own questions!
1) How many cups of tea do you have a day? Milk and sugar?
I'm not really a big drinker of any sort of beverages, I just always seem to forget and definitely need to change that! So I'd say on average just one cup of tea, however I'm not opposed to having more! I have it with milk and two sugars. 
2) Favourite part of a Roast dinner?
Yorkshire puddings or if we have them then pigs in blankets - but we usually only have that around Christmas!
3) Go to dunking biscuit?
Now I only like to dunk occasionally as it is so disappointing when you're left with soggy bisc…

MY 2018 GOALS AND RESOLUTIONS

Each and everyone has a different opinion of New Year's resolutions, personally I don't think you should put too much pressure on them, as you can't always achieve them! However I do think setting yourself some sort of goal to help better yourself and to open up new opportunities is a great thing to do! Here are 10 resolutions or goals I have set myself for 2018!
Be healthier
A fairly common one here and one of the hardest to stick to I'd say! I really want to start being healthier in general, for instance I'm planning to make smoothies as a replacement for breakfast or lunch on some occasions, as well as making sure I drink enough water. One of my biggest downfalls is snacking so that is also something I want to work on! I've recently made a Pinterest board with some ideas for smoothies, you can find it here!
Start exercising more
I definitely want to start being more active again, I used to love sport so this is something I hope to get back into. I started run…

DECEMBER MONTHLY FAVOURITES

I'm desperately trying to hold on to every last bit of Christmas so here are some of the things I loved throughout December and the festive period! I swear it goes by quicker every year?!
Beauty - Now I'm stripping it back to basics here as this month I have been so thankful for my trusty Vaseline lip balms. Now they aren't a new favourite by any means but in the colder months when your lips tend to be drier, a good lip balm is essential and Vaseline is my go to! I love all the scents but I tend to use the Aloe Vera and Rosy Lips most often, I've always got one of them close to hand! Another thing that is always needed during the winter months is hand cream, the Nivia Express Hydration hand cream is great for day to day use, I also have a Ted Baker one that I like as it smells amazing!
T.V/Movies - Moving on to what I've enjoyed watching this year, and I have to say that of course I did spend most of December watching Christmas movies (Elf is my fave) but Christma…

WHAT I GOT FOR CHRISTMAS 2017

Happy New Year everybody! I can't believe it is 2018, the last year went so quickly! After having a break off around Christmas I am back and ready to start blogging again. Before I get into my plans for the year I thought I would share what I got for Christmas this year! Like everyone, I'm not bragging - I am very grateful for everything of course!! I've always enjoyed seeing the gifts people have received so here are a few of the things I got!



One of my main presents and something I was really looking forward to opening is my new graphic tablet. I love getting creative and have been interested in developing my digital art skills for a while so this was the perfect gift for me. I got the Chuwi 12" tablet which is such a great size and runs on Windows or Android, the stylus has great pen pressure recognition and I've found it so easy to draw with. Maybe in the future I'll share some of my work, once I've experimented with it more!


Something else I received …

BLOGMAS: THE CHRISTMAS TAG!

Happy Christmas Eve everybody! I thought The Christmas Tag would be very appropriate to do today, I tag anyone who wants to do it! 
Q) What is your favourite Christmas film? A) Elf! It is just brilliant!
Q) Is your Christmas tree real or fake? A) It's real, wouldn't have it any other way!
Q) What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season? A) New York or somewhere really cold and snowy because we don't really have much hope for a white Christmas where I live!
Q) Do you stay in your pyjamas or dress up on Christmas Day? A) I stay in my pyjamas whilst opening presents, having breakfast and then at some point, usually late morning I'll get dressed. However we don't necessarily dress up, I'll usually wear a top or jumper I received as a present with some jeans.
Q) What is your favourite holiday snack? A) Cheeselets! They are a must have and something I can eat and eat! / Q) Are you a pro present wrapper or do you fail miserably? A) I'd like to think I…

BLOGMAS: MY CHRISTMAS PLAYLIST

Less than a week to go now guys! Something that is a massive part of the whole run up to Christmas are the festive tunes that I love to listen to - in fact I've probably had them on since September time! There are some absolute classics and I would love to know what your favourite is!

I'm going to share my top 10 favourites, then a link to my YouTube Christmas playlist and various Spotify ones too if you want to have a listen and put them on repeat like me!
1) Merry Christmas Everyone - Shakin' Stevens
This one had to be at the top of my list because I have always, always loved it. Whenever I hear it I feel nostalgic as I associate it with Christmas at my Primary school and of course it is great song to get anyone in the Christmas spirit!
2) Last Christmas - Wham!
I couldn't go through Christmas without listening to this, it is a great one to belt out in the car I think! After the horrible passing of George last year, I feel like this one should be on repeat and definit…
