A Book Haul

I recently went on another book buying spree (when there’s such good offers on at The Works, how can you not!) I’d also gained a small amount of money on their loyalty card which I wanted to use up. I still have books on my to read list from what I bought last year that I haven’t yet read but as any reader knows, that’s never enough of an excuse not to buy more.

February Resolutions

Resolutions have been a bit hit and miss for me this year, I started off with all the good intentions but then it all fell a bit flat, not because I failed the resolutions I’d started but more because I never made a proper list. Going into February I want to be a bit more organised (The Blog Network Twitter chat really got me thinking about this yesterday evening) so I’ve decided to make a list for this month and perhaps do this month by month instead of one for the rest of the year. I’m using this sheet for some of my resolutions that came with my order from Jemma at Dorkface, it is wipe-able so I can re-use it each month.

Blogmas | Christmas Baubles – Nail Art

I’ve had this idea in my head for a few days now but I wasn’t too sure if it would work out or not so didn’t want to commit it to a blog post idea. I haven’t done a lot of nail art like this recently, the last lot I did was for Halloween which you can find here – Halloween Nails but I wanted to give this one a go.

Blogmas | Making Christmas Gift Tags

So much for me being all no I’m not doing any more Blogmas posts yesterday… Today I finally got round to making some Christmas gift tags, this is something I’ve liked doing for a while now. I did see someone else do a gift tag post on their blog which did actually give me the idea to blog about these but I can’t remember who it was now or I’d mention them here.

Blogmas | Make-Up In December

I wanted my next Blogmas post to be a make-up one, once I’d got photos I was happy with and thought yay I’m ready to write and post this the other night, I then realised I’m wearing the same lipstick as the last make-up post I did (the chances of that happening, I mean seriously, I do own quite a few different lipsticks now). There are a few other different products I’m using here this time though so I’ve decided to post it anyway, plus the Christmas tree is in the background of the first lot of photos so I didn’t not want to share these.
