What a year, It’s had up’s and downs but I got through it. I had some lovely adventures with my blogging friends, including Bluestone and a trip to London. I also got to visit some amazing places with Johny, such as St David’s cathedral, Carew’s Castle and the Isle of Wight. I faced a fear – holding a snake. I bought a car and past my driving test. Both Johny and I had surgery on the same day. I started the Access to Healthcare course. I got a new job. But most importantly spent loads of time with my family. Here’s just some of my pictures from 2016.
You cannot generalize women. This Christmas I’ve decided to show that the majority of Christmas gift guides for her (women/girls) are stereotypical. Not all females like the same things, we all have different likes and interests.
My sister, cousin and I, were all brought up very closely yet we are all completely different. In this post I will show you my Christmas list and then over the next few posts I’ll show you theirs.
Boots have launched a new wonderful thing called the ‘Beauty Emporium’. It is heaven for all us beauty addicts and such a fab idea to see and try all the new beauty lines. The Beauty Emporium is a new set up in boots where on a weekly basis they will be promoting different brands and offering tips and tricks of the latest trends.
Boots kindly invited me to attend their Swansea opening event and have a look around the emporium. I decided to take my mum with me and have a girly mother and daughter evening.
I have one pet, a cat and her name is Cleo. She has black fur with grey flecks going through her chest and paws. We had her from a kitten about 8 years ago, when a lady who we used to get eggs from was moving back to Ireland. Her cat had two kittens a grey sort of tabby and a black one. When my parents told us about them, my sisters and I decided we would like the grey one and we were going to call it Fleur. What I didn’t know was apparently my dad had said to my mum we could get both. We went as a family to have a look at them, however when we got there another family had already been and taken the grey one, so we were left with the other. When I saw her though, I fell in love – she was gorgeous. We decided to name her Cleo Fleur. When we got her home she was so timid and quiet. It took her a while to get used to the house and we had to keep her in certain rooms to begin with as she hadn’t had all her injections.
It used to be a luxury for me to go to a MAC counter. The closest one was in Cardiff and I would hardly ever go there. It would be a big planned shopping trip. Until I recently found out MAC have launched a counter in Debenhams Swansea store.
This week has been a bit of a whirlwind, to be honest I can’t really remember what happened. I had work – as usual busy busy. I had two hospital appointments. I had yummy food. I said goodbye to my family as they are all going on holiday for two weeks. House to myself, well and Johny. Oh and of course the cat. I’m off work in one of my jobs for two weeks myself so am going to work hard on my blog.
This week I’ve been busy working and also going to the gym with my cousin and sister. I also had a lovely time shopping with my mum, cousin and two sisters. Spent a bit too much money but oh well, it was worth it! Johny and I got to spend some together and we booked our ferry crossing for our holiday to the Isle of White.
I’ve really enjoyed this week! Busy working for the most part but managed to do a few things in between. Johny and I both had our haircuts, and I’m in love with my new style. I also did a bit of shopping. I picked up some mats and a Yankee candle air freshener for my car. I also got a few bits of stationary ready for college and some new bedding for my room.
