I realised the other day that if you don’t follow me on social media you probably don’t know that I’m now vegetarian. Annoyingly I didn’t note down the day I became a vegetarian but I think it’s been six months now. It’s gone crazily fast!! I thought I’d share a little about my vegetarian story as it might interest some of you. Please remember that this is just my experience and my personal beliefs. Nothing I say is meant to offend you if you have different beliefs or eating habits.
I like to think that as I’ve got older, I’ve started to think about my purchases a lot more – I wait to find that perfect thing and I’m much more prone to “sleeping on it”. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still a sucker for impulse buys at the checkout and love a good splurge! I just now make more of an effort to really think about my purchases. Something that I’ve wanted for so long but just couldn’t justify the cost was a designer lipstick. More specifically, I wanted two lipsticks – one Chanel and one YSL.
My jewellery collection holds some of my most precious possessions. What I love about jewellery is that it makes an ordinary outfit feel so special. If the piece of jewellery holds a special meaning then that feeling of specialness is even greater. Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere recently shared some of her favourite jewellery pieces and why they mean so much to her. I really enjoyed reading it so I thought I’d do a similar post.
Kmart is having such a moment right now – not a day goes by where I don’t see at least one person’s latest purchase in my Instagram feed. It’s especially killing it with homewares. All that copper is making me swoon! Yesterday I headed to my local store to get a new laundry hamper that I’d seen in a magazine (I instagrammed it here if you’re interested). And of course while I was there I got distracted by the other homeware and storage products. We’re in a bit of a spring cleaning mode at the moment so I sadly had to ignore a lot of the beautiful pieces calling my name but I couldn’t say no to a few organisational products. After all, they can only but help with the cleaning and the organising. Of course, I gravitated towards products to help with beauty storage.
I’m not sure I’ve really talked about books on here before – years ago I may have done a book review or two but other than that I haven’t really mentioned reading, or more specifically my love of reading. I’ve been an avid reader (and writer) for as long as I can remember. I could easily and happily spend an entire week curled up with a couple of books.
When I was younger my mom used to have to make me stop reading and go to sleep. I decided I needed to get around this whole ‘lights out’ thing so I used my pocket money to buy a torch and I hid it in my room. I was then able to read under my duvet well into the night… until she caught me! Books have been my joy, my main source of entertainment and sometimes a place of escape.
Continuing the theme of resolutions that’s almost taken over the blog recently (I hope you’ve been enjoying it) I wanted to talk about my beauty resolutions. I don’t know if I’ve ever really made resolutions about beauty before but I’ve decided this year I want to make a few changes.
Now I’m not taking these too seriously and won’t get annoyed at myself if I don’t stick to them but I find resolutions to be inspiring and motivating.
