Skincare Routine 2017

So my first week not working was pretty weird but so relaxing, I've enjoyed being able to work more on my blog and social media as well as going charity shopping. Alongside this, to earn a bit of money, I worked at the Quayside Market in Newcastle last Sunday, which was really enjoyable, and I am also working at a Kilo Sale in Durham this Saturday, and am hoping to bag some bargains whilst at work!

It has been a while since I did a skincare post, let alone a skincare routine, but my last one is still one of my most popular posts and seems to constantly be in 'Popular Posts' in my blog sidebar, so I thought I would do an updated one. My skin has got a lot better since I wrote my original post, so I have been using a lot of different products on it.

Turn and face the strange

Despite last week being incredibly stressful, I am feeling pretty good this week. I left my job last Friday, which was a difficult decision to make but I am confident that I made the right choice. On Tuesday I shot with Alice and then went to The Botanist for a perfume making workshop, which was my mother's day present for my mum. Sadly the day took a sad turn when we got home to find out that one of our beloved chickens had died.

We aren't sure what was wrong with her but have been told that it isn't bird flu, which was our worry. Chickens aren't the most typical pets and I never thought I'd love them as much as I do, but this has hit our whole family really hard, especially since we'd only had Pecky for just over a year.

Writing this the day after Pecky's passing proved quite difficult, I was obviously upset and worried about our other chicken so my mind was easily distracted. If you want to read a bit more about our chickens, then you can see my blog post here.

The past week has been pretty hectic with work and some exciting blog opportunities, so I am at a bit of a loss as to what to write in my weekly round-up! I've been re-evaluating myself a bit, especially my new year's resolution to 'spend less', which I am kind of failing at. Despite Topshop's insanely beautiful new season clothing, I have been fairly restrained and have been to more vintage sales and charity shops as well as scouring my beloved Depop for items to swap/ buy.

I also got my first tattoo a couple of weeks ago! I had it done at Northside Tattooz in Whitley Bay by Adam Smith, who is a really talented artist. It does need a bit of touching up, but the dotwork style is exactly what I was after and I can now show off my bee tattoo when wearing my bee earrings and bee shirt, to resemble a crazy bee lady.

Bootay Bag review

This past week has been pretty much the same as others recently; work, sleep, eat, repeat. Changing my blog posting day to Thursday is, however, giving me a lot more time to spend on posts if I am busy over the weekend, rather than rushing them on a Monday night after work.

I was initially thinking of sharing another outfit post today, but am still getting the hang of now using Adobe Lightroom to edit my photos rather than Photoshop (my hair is currently not as red in the photos as it is in real life), so I have switched up my schedule a bit. I love a subscription service as much as the next blogger does, so when I discovered Bootay Bag, an underwear subscription service through Instagram, I knew that I needed to try it out.

Not your baby

So, it isn't actually a Tuesday but I've been thinking about changing my posting day for a while and have finally done it. I do usually like to start each post with a round-up of my previous week, but I am really struggling to think about what I did, aside from go to work, meet up with friends and get a fair bit of my hair cut off! I am, however, finally back with some fashion content (it’s been a couple of weeks, I know) and I am so happy about it.

As much as I do enjoy writing about events and lifestyle, the main focus of my blog is fashion and it is what I am hugely passionate about. Part of the reason I am excited about this fashion post is the photos, which were taken by my friend Katie, who is also a North East blogger as well as an amazing photographer!
