GOODBYE 2017: THE YEAR AHEAD

We’ve now said goodbye to 2017, and what a year it’s been. As a society, we’ve had some pretty terrible things happen throughout the year: Theresa May, Manchester Arena bombings, London Bridge attack, Grenfell tower to name a few. Aside from all the horrible occurrences, we’ve suffered from over the year, on a more personal level 2017 has been a year I’ve enjoyed quite a lot. So similarly to last year, I thought I’d talk through some of the highlights of my year. Slimming World: Back in January 2017, I decided to join Slimming World in order to get myself…

FINDING THE BALANCE: HOW I’VE STRUGGLED WITH A NEW ROUTINE

Hey, it’s me again. Firstly I must apologise for how quiet I’ve been on here the past few weeks. So much for a big productive blog launch eh? I’ve been a little absence of late, both on here and over on my social media. To be honest I’ve really been struggling with finding the balance.The fact winter is well and truly here hasn’t helped much with that either.

HOME UPDATES WITH POUNDSTRETCHERS

It has almost been two years now since Lee and myself moved into our little two bedroom flat and we are slowly improving the decor and really putting our stamp on the place.

But I am finally really happy with the way it is now…

BLOG RE-BRAND: A WHOLE NEW LOOK

After 4 years of Alice’s Wonder Emporium, and almost 7 years of blogging on and off with various blogs that we will not speak of. I decided it was finally time to have a full blog re-brand and finally make the move from Blogger to WordPress. As anybody in the bloggersphere knows Phil from Pipdig is the place to go for Blogger to WordPress migration and super stylish blog layouts. Having spent the past couple of months doing some freelance marketing work I had a nice little pot of extra money I’d saved up. So decided this was the best time…

LUSH NEWCASTLE: HALLOWEEN AND CHRISTMAS SHOWCASE

Now I’ve been a huge lover of Lush for as long as I remember. One of the first blogger events I went to was a Lush event back in 2013. So when Lush Newcastle announced they were hosting a blogger event I jumped at the chance to go. This event was to promote the launch of the new Halloween and Christmas range – and we all got the first glimpse before the shop was open to the public. On arrival we were all greeted with name badges, fruit juice and a range of Vegan pizzas that had been generously supplied…
