Homeware Haul (1)

I wrote a little while ago about how I was planning to redecorate my bedroom (you can read that here) and I’m not going to lie, progress has been a little slow.. but slow progress is better than none I guess! We’ve got the room painted, so the next step is to get the furniture upcycled (I’ll make sure to do a post about that when I do it). In the meantime I’ve been collecting a few bits to spruce the room up once it’s done, so I thought I would share those with you today!

Musings of a Bride to Be

Some of you might be aware already, but I’m getting married in April. The big day is coming round frightfully quickly, which is making me feel a whole different host of emotions. I thought I would write down some of my thoughts and feelings in a post – if it gets sappy then I’m sorry, but it might do!

Valentines Day – a special day to celebrate your relationship with your significant other, or an overly commercialised holiday designed by money grabbing business executives?! Whichever camp you belong to, Valentines day can end up being an expensive affair. It doesn’t have to be that way though, so I’ve come up with some simple, affordable date night ideas for any of you who might be struggling with a bit of romantic inspiration.

My 30 Before 30

I think it’s always good to have goals, otherwise you just end up meandering aimlessly through your life with no real purpose. When I say that I don’t mean that everyone should have a ridiculously over ambitious plan of their life, I just mean it’s good to have something to aim for, big or small.

I’ve seen a lot of people posting 30 before 30 videos on YouTube, and it’s got me thinking about my goals in my own life. I’ve got some goals and ambitions, but it’s very easy to get sucked into everyday life and before you know it another year has gone by and you’re no closer to where you want to be. I figured that writing your goals down (or posting them on in internet in my case) would be a good way of keeping track of where you’re going and giving yourself some direction. So here are my 30 things I want to achieve in the next 6 years before I am 30.

New Year, New Blog

Hello out there, and welcome to my very first blog post. I thought I would take this opportunity to introduce myself, so you can get to know a bit about me.

My name is Vicky, I am 24 and from Essex in the UK. I am a lover of all things fashion and beauty, so that is probably the main kind of post you can expect from this blog – but to be honest, I’m probably just going to write about any old drivel that comes into my head (I apologize in advance!). I also love to travel (as much as my bank balance will allow me) and I’m a bit of a foodie, so I might even try venturing into a bit of travel and food blogging on occasions.

I have always been a lover of social media, I can spend hours watching videos, looking at photos and reading other people’s posts. Up until recently I was very much just a follower, but in January last year I started posting videos on my Youtube channel (which you can find here). My videos have become a massive part of my life, and I LOVE doing them, so as of January this year I decided I would like to try my hand at blogging also. I find reading other people’s blogs so inspiring, so hopefully I can pass on a bit of that inspiration too!

I want to try and post something each week, although I do have to be a bit realistic – I work full time and sometimes life gets in the way! So I’m not going to be sticking to a strict posting schedule for now, but I am just going to go with the flow and see where this takes me!

I hope some of you will join me on my journey into the world of blogging, and I will try my best to be back next week with a slightly more interesting post!

Vicky xo
