What's New?



I've felt that recently I have been loosing touch with what my blog is about and forgetting to connect with you guys on a much more personal level. I used to do Sunday Update posts every week but that's fallen behind and I don't always have tons of interesting things to say. But I've been catching up with some of my favourite bloggers and reading their heartfelt blog posts or watching their videos has inspired me to reconnect with my own readers and just let you know what I've been up to. That is, if anyone's interested of course!

The above photos show the latest issue of Cosmo - complete with free oversized sunnies in tortoise shell which I really like. There are three different pairs to choose from and this month's issue is full of great articles. I buy magazines mainly for a quiet shift at work or to read in the bath and I really need to get around to buying a subscription which would save me a ton of money.
About a month ago I took the plunge and bought an iPhone 4S which I am completely in love with. I'm not quite sure how I survived without one - and I already have an addiction to Instagram. (thisfashionismine) I bought this amazing quartz crystal design case from an Etsy seller, you can check out their shop here. They sell a lot of beautiful unique cases for great value.

I'm currently free from Uni stresses and looking for another part time job! It's hard work and not to mention expensive to keep myself occupied throughout the summer months (it's like gap year all over again) and although I am appreciating the lie ins I might go crazy unless I have a plan of action.
I've been doing a lot of fashion related DIY and keeping a big list of all the things I want to try out and show you guys in the future. A lot of planning and work goes into my 'DIY Fridays' and I want to keep going with them for as long as possible. But in the main I'm really happy with how my blog is progressing and everyday I want to write more and more! I have several ready-written posts to publish I just need to get my camera out and take the right sort of shots to accompany them.

My big sister will be home from the States next weekend and shortly after that is The Stone Roses gig at Heaton Park, Manchester (anyone going?) I'm hoping the weather cheers up for it, I've never been to an outdoor music thing before (not even a festival!) I'd quite like to do the whole shorts and wellies ensemble!

How's your week gone so far? Any one know of any cool must-have iPhone apps? I'm still learning!

  4. I'm exactly the same with my blog, and I have just done a post very similar to this as I felt like it was just a beauty blog when I want it to be a personal beauty and lifestyle blog. I so want to go out and buy Cosmo now!
