Life Update #2

Where have I been?

I have been rather bad at blogging the last few months (maybe even longer).  The reasons for this are mainly 1) work being busy and rather stressful and 2) we have been working on getting the spare bedroom sorted and decorated so it is usable.  I’m happy to say this is now complete and we have had our first guests.  We have done all of the decorating in the house ourselves so it has been a lengthy process but well worth it. We are nearly there. Would you like a post all about our house buying and renovating process?  We would have had the house for a year in May so it would be a good chance to look back on the whole process and all the work we have done. It was quite the learning experience but all in all, it was good fun!

As the days are starting to get longer and things are starting to come together with the house, I hope I will get more chance to write here.  I have big plans for my Blog in 2018 but we will have to wait and see how I do.

Plans for 2018.

I’m turning 25 next month and Nic and I have planned a short 3 day break to Jersey, just as a little get away (and possibly a little bit of shopping).  With a new mortgage and still quite a bit of work to do on the house we will not be having any big holidays any time soon so are looking to book a few smaller trips this year.  We would like to go to London at Christmas time to experience Winter Wonderland as I have never been to London during Christmas.  It would also be nice to visit Brighton again but we will have to see how the saving goes. Do you live in Jersey? If so do you have any recommendations of things to see or places to go?

For my Blog in 2018 I would like to do a lot more Costume Makeup posts.  At the moment I only do these during the lead up to Halloween but I would like to do a few more different style ones throughout the year.  I would also like to introduce different models and maybe even some children’s fancy dress makeup for costume parties.  I would love to hear what you think, would this be something you would like to see?

I would also like to do more fashion and DIY style posts.  I love to create things, I knit, crochet, sew and used to draw and paint.  Recently the only painting I have been doing is painting walls so would love to get back into something more delicate.

Finally I would like to give my blog a brand new look.  It needs a bit of a refresh and a bit more colour. If you are an illustrator or designer that could assist me I would love to hear from you.

What have you been doing recently?
