I hope you are all doing well.
I started this little section of my blog with the intention of writing down a few more specific and personal aspects of my daily life. General thoughts, feelings and aspirations as it were. I know a lot of you will love reading this and I know that I will enjoy writing without having to edit out the limitations a fashion and beauty blogger has in front of them.
Today is 17th August 2017, my best friends birthday! I’m currently sat in a gym cafe, waiting for my boyfriend to finish his set so we can go food shopping. Something that I haven’t mentioned on my Instagram account is that we have both taken a plunge and dived into vegetarianism. We’re about a week in so far and have been really enjoying meal times again. Furthermore, its actually given us an excuse to get out the cookbooks so we don’t eat the same three vegetables over and over again!
We’re currently working out way through the new Fearne Cotton “Eat, Cook, Love“” book which is incredible. I happen to be a long time lover of Fearne, I have her older cookbook “Cook Happy, Cook Healthy” and her book “Happy” on my bookshelf. Her being a vegetarian has only increased the level of yumminess some of the dishes have. I also think she has an amazing style and it is something that has heavily influenced my own fashion choices.
I bought myself a dairy last night along with my gorgeous yellow jumper so I can now start to map out my day to day. I know that this is going to be really beneficial, as much as I would love to say with hand on heart that I am a spontaneous person. I know it isn’t true. I LOVE order, structure, routine, habit… Maybe that’s why I’m so critical of myself and find it so hard to start new things. Well, no more! From this point onwards, with my diary at my side, I shall conquer the world.
A few things I am planning to schedule into my day to day are as follows:
Swim once a week
Read one book a fortnight
Learn a new language (German, to start with)
One random act of kindness a month
Practise vlogging. (To eventually turn into Vlog weekly)
Meditate every morning/night
Obviously, this list will probably grow to 5 times the size but for now, I’m happy to admit and convict myself to these things. Now all I need to do is look at my free time and slot them in.
I’ve listed all the items mentioned in this post below, so you can check them out for yourself.
Until next time,
