So as most of you know, I went offline for nearly the entire month of August. I explained a lot in my blog post HERE about why I took the time off and as always was honest with my feelings about social media. I am really looking forward to this new month and I feel like a have a very different mindset as we go into the final months of the year. I ADORE my blog and writing so I am making that the focus for the remainder of the year. I really want to put 2019 behind me all together. It’s been one thing after another and I’m already READY for 2020.
Myself, Sean and Lily are going to my godfather’s house today for afternoon tea with all our family. I can’t wait to see everyone. I love having all my family together so it should be a lovely afternoon.
Anyway if you are a new follower HELLO, this is a blog post I write every month on what I am loving, planning, thinking about, excited for, wishing for and more.
Let’s get cracking 🙂
ASOS has been my life the past month. I don’t even want to check my order history. The best thing I ever did was sign up for ASOS Premier Delivery. It’s only €18.99 for the whole year and it’s NEXT DAY DELIVERY! Add it to your bag HERE. Now be warned it does kind of make you spend more, so I have warned you but I swear it’s a game changer. One thing I love about ASOS is the returns and refund policy is so quick. You can send something back free of charge and then it’s in your account within 5-7 working days. A little tip for ASOS is to change it into sterling when buying it so just change the currency, WAY cheaper 😉
We are off to Vegas soon so outfit planning has been underway. Vegas is somewhere that has been high on my bucket list for so long & I always said I wanted to do it with a group. Sean’s celebrating his 30th so we are really looking forward to the celebrations. I’ll be doing a massive haul next Friday.
If you followed me last year, you will know I worked with Huawei to promote their incredible app, Storysign which brings the life of story books and stories to life for children who are deaf, hard of hearing or deafened. I shared this amazing advert for it HERE. If you haven’t watched it, you should. This is not anything paid but I wanted to share that Huawei have now announced that they are adding 52 more books to their collection which is HUGE! It means that so many every day story books will become so accessible to so many families around the world. It makes me so happy as it is such a brilliant app.
The BPerfect Cosmetics XL PRO Carnival palette. It’s actually even better than I thought. It’s got something for everyone and would last AGES!!!! My friend Jenny as you all know does my makeup a lot and we created this look below using it. I was so thrilled to giveaway three this week to three lucky followers. BPerfect have some AMAZING products coming and I am just so excited for them. Their new mascara launches this week and I cannot wait for them to launch their instant tan, that will be a game changer for me. I apply the mousse all the time but it’s nice to pop an instant tan on over it. Looking forward to it.
You can use AOIBHE20 for 20% off on their website HERE. It doesn’t work on the travel set or the new palette but works on everything else 🙂
NOTE** I am a Brand Ambassador for over a year with Bperfect Cosmetics now.
Better than I was a month ago. I am so glad I took the time out that I needed from work, life, social media everything. I think sometimes people are scared to say something but I knew everything was getting too much for me so basically called it quits. I was so rundown at the beginning of August and honestly it was one thing after another. I just couldn’t cope with it all. I have found going for walks with Lily the best and walking by the sea, well actually being by the sea in general. I have also been using the app called Calm. It is so great to use before sleeping and honestly calms you so much. Highly recommend for anyone that can’t sleep.
Michelle Fox. What a gal. I’m so happy for her and her collaboration with Fuschia. I have followed Michelle for ages now and she is the kindest and nicest girl ever. She’s such a hot mama, like look at those photos from the shoot. They are just fabulous, Lili Forberg did the shoot so I’m not surprised. Her work is really really great. I am so happy for her and how well it has done. There is a palette, lipstick, lipgloss and lashes. Such a great gift for anyone. Everything is so wearable and would suit everyone.
Our under-stairs storage from Smart Storage. We got it done a few weeks ago, I’ll show it on my stories this week. It’s so so good and now leaves us with soooo much more space in our utility room. We can put away our cabin bags, ironing board, clothes horse, shoes and loads of other bits/bobs. Our friends have it and when we saw theirs done we knew it would be great for us. I will show you it next week in detail as a few people have asked. I love that so many of you enjoy my interiors and home content too. I love anything to do with interiors. Top photo below is BEFORE it was done and below is AFTER.
Pilot Lily. I captured this photo when we collected Sean a few weeks ago from the airport. She shouted Dada Dada as he came through arrivals which was so cute. I just love it. It’s definitely one for her book. I’ve been doing a book for her with photos since she was a baby. I can’t wait to show her when she is older.
BINGO LOCO!!!!!! We went back in April and it was absolutely brilliant! It’s actually so much fun. If you have never been, you should go. It is the funniest night out and great crack. They do them all around the world. There is so many of them on between now and the end of the year, even one in Fremantle in Perth. I felt like I went back in time to a disco when I was 15. Check it out HERE if you’ve never heard of it.
