If the start of a new year isn’t a good excuse for a new skincare routine, I don’t know what is! Although I will be honest here, I started using these way back in 2017 when my skin decided I needed to get reminded of what it was like to be a teenager again. It’s 2018 people! New year – New winter skincare routine!
Hey Sasspots and welcome to the very first post of 2018! I hope every one of you had a GREAT NYE. Before we resume with our regular posting schedule on Friday (you can read more about the schedule here) I just wanted to drop by and say Hey! If you read my last blog post you’ll know I am pretty happy to see the end of 2017 and extremely happy to kick start the new year. There are great things in store for this year! I wasn’t really in the mood to set any new years resolutions but I figured that setting some 2018 Goals wouldn’t hurt 🙂
So here are 8 goals I have for 2018!
I should have known. I started 2017 with my blog getting hacked, and that set the precedence for the rest of the year.
I’m not gonna do a 2017 outfit recap, or post pictures from what I have done the past year because in all honesty there is absolutely nothing to recap.
Ok that’s a lie. I know the start of 2017 was great, it was beyond great, it was amazing. Then October came around and everything that happened before drowned in the shadow of my fathers’ death. The only thing I can remember is the boyf turning 30.
A few weeks ago I was doing a late shift and enjoying a much-needed lie in when I was rudely awoken by the mailman. I’m not usually fussed by this but for once I knew I wasn’t expecting a package and I was looking forward to a lazy morning. To my great surprise though, it was my very first Voxbox!
VoxBox is a beauty box from Influenster; where you review products and in return you may be chosen to receive one of these beauty boxes to test and review the products. The box I received was full of #HolidayLooks Bourjois goodies!
An oldie but a goodie. Norwegian Christmas bread – also known as Julebrød. A perfect one last DIY Christmas idea for those of you who are running on a last minute schedule.
Personally I have never really been a huge fan of raisins, Norwegian Christmas bread seems to be the exception! The bread is sweet, soft, full of flavor and above all? Super duper easy to make!
I’m such a sucker for pretty much everything Christmas and I should probably be embarrassed. But guess what, I am not! You’re probably gonna laugh now but one of my absolute favorite things about Christmas is selecting a wrapping theme for the year and actually wrapping presents. Yes you read right, I have a Christmas wrapping theme and, no I am not insane.
The closer I get to Christmas, the more I crave Christmas food and for the first time ever I am craving mince pies. Don’t ask me why, I have always thought of them as these dry, tasteless raisin filled fake cupcakes that belong nowhere near a Christmas table. Give me a Norwegian Kakemenn any day!
I also love making my own Christmas presents, and this year I think it might just be Kakemenn 😉
Unless you have been living under a rock I’m sure you have heard of Beauty boxes subscriptions. They are usually monthly subscriptions around £15 a month and include a handful of travel size products within beauty and hair. It’s a great budget-friendly way to try out new products without leaving your home. I love them, particularly because I have a tendency to be an extreme creature of habit.
Christmas has finally landed in our little home! The tree is up, we have started our advent calendar and the stockings are hung. I wish it could be Christmas every day!
and the best part? Only 5 more days of work until Christmas break – and no boss I am not sorry for counting down.
The countdown to Christmas has begun people and believe it or not I have already finished pretty much
all my Christmas presents for the year! I mean look – it’s even snowing on the blog!
Snaps for me!
Although I am super excited for Christmas this year, I am also dreading it. I feel like Im floating outside of my own body at the moment and I am just kinda waiting to land. It’s also really difficult to know I won’t be able to wish my father a Merry Christmas. It’s a thought that is constantly running through my mind, I have been toying with the idea of starting a separate blog where I write to my dad. I just need to get it out, you know? Anyway, I found a great way to distract myself from, well, myself. Christmas movies! Now I just gotta get Santa (I mean the boyfriend) to buy me a Panasonic Oled 4K TV – it’s the TV of TV’s, the crème de la crème.
