2015 Year Review

Every year I say "what a terrible year, hope the next year is better than this one!", and I know I'm not the only one to say so.

So instead, this year, I'm going to focus on everything amazing that has happened over the last 12 months and look forward to adding to the memories. 

I don't really remember much of January, February or March. I was heavily pregnant for most of it! April will stay with me for the rest of my life April was the month that my son was born. After 9 long months and 3 days in labour he was born 5 days late and he was, and still is, beautiful. He is the happiest little boy on the planet and I feel very blessed to have him in my life. 

Since April I have mainly focused on being a mum - it's quite a change! But I did also start my blog. I needed something to focus on that wasn't talking baby talk! It also meant I could start focusing on myself again. After having my little boy, I put on any weight I had lost and felt awful for it. So I started the blog to help me get back to actually wanting to take care of myself and my appearance, trying new products along my journey. And also to try and give me something to kick me into gear to lose a bit of weight too. 

I haven't done particularly well but my New Years resolutions include losing weight and improving on self maintenance & health. 

I hope you all had an amazing 2015, it really is worth taking some time to look back over the good things that happened, even if there's only one or two. What are your New Years resolutions?

Update post

So I thought I'd post a bit of an update. Before Christmas I was plagued with a nail infection and my finger was pretty swollen. It hurt to touch anything including type. It's finally starting to clear now but it really was a kick up the derrière to stop biting my nails! 

This Christmas was also my little boys first Christmas! He was spooky rotten and it really wore him out but it was extremely enjoyable. Did you all enjoy Christmas? Did you get everything you wanted?

We've had a pretty relaxing couple of days and will continue to in preparation for New Years. Although I'm unsure as to what I will be doing yet, I'm sure it will be very fun and exciting! What are you most looking forward to in the New Year?

1 Week from now we will all be tucked up in bed awaiting the arrival of Mr Claus and his beautiful Reindeer! 

I love Christmas so so so much! When 1st December hits, the Christmas playlist is on, the Santa hat is out and I get super excited about starting my Advent Calendar. We were a bit late putting the tree up this year but it's up now and it looks beautiful. I bought a new decoration too in the form of a canvas painting of The Snowman and The Snowdog - it lights up! I still need to get a hammer and nails so it can be hung up but I will make sure that is done before next week.

Is everyone ready for Christmas? I can't wait!!

Bad Blogger!

So I've been a bit of a bad blogger the last couple of weeks. I have been a bit poorly though and have truly been feeling sorry for myself! But I'm almost bad to my normal self and am back to feeling up to doing things - blogging included!

Not much has happened but I have had a bit of time to catch up on reading some blogs and watching YouTubers. One of my favourite YouTubers at the moment is Cutepolish - she does nail art tutorials and some of them are amazing. She did a video on some of Essie's nail polishes as they are doing a Retro Revival Collection and bringing back some popular shades from days gone by! Some are from more recent years like 2006 but the one I'm most looking forward to is a shade called Starry Starry Night and it's from 1985! It's a gorgeous glittery blue that will be perfect for Christmas. Can't wait to get my hands on a bottle!

Is Everyone Poorly?

I woke this morning to find I've lost my voice! My throat is incredibly sore and I feel like I have zero energy. People I've spoken to over the last week have either been ill or know someone who has been ill. It feels like everyone is coming down with  a bug at the moment!

The upside to being poorly? Curling up on the sofa with a hot water bottle and Disney movies!

How are you all feeling? How do you like to deal with feeling rotten?

Laters lovelies! Nikki ~x~
