My Thoughts On Completing My First Tax Return Since Becoming Self Employed

Oh boy, this is a post I've been meaning to write for a while but well, I'm not going to lie I've been putting off completing my self assessment form all year. I absolutely hate filling in any type of form with a passion. I always feel like I'm going to mess it up. Also knowing you've got to fill in a form for HMRC aka "the tax man" is actually scary, will I end up doing it wrong and end up with a fine? Every time I took a glance at the self assessment form and what it looks like I'd shut down and put it off for even longer and I know I'm probably not alone in that either. But then a few weeks ago I just sat down one afternoon and did it. I don't know where the motivation and confidence came from but I did it and guess what? Altogether it only took about an hour. So I'm going to talk about my overall thoughts and also some extra information if you've just become self employed or being thinking of becoming self employed via your blog soon.

New Year, New Wardrobe Wishlist

I've decided that this year I'm going to try and get out of my comfort zone with what I wear on a daily basis. I'm very much a fan of a slogan or stripe tee or cosy jumper and leggings/jeggings and either boots or trainers. I just like being comfortable and cosy which isn't a bad thing but when I look in my wardrobe and I just feel like I have a lot of the same things in different colours and patterns. I rarely wear dresses or skirts, although I have been wearing dresses a little bit more over the past few months but that's because I find them comfortable when I'm bloated thanks to my health problems. I recently did a blog post titled "New Year, New Wardrobe" and it was all about why I want to be more confident with what I'm wearing and not to shy away from certain styles because I'm plus size and also to start shopping at different places to where I normally shop. So I thought in this post I'd bring to you a Wishlist which features both things I would buy which are in my comfort zone and also some things which aren't in my comfort zone at all.

My Go-To Everyday Skincare Picks


Because I'm always talking about skincare and the fact that I own enough skincare products that I could actually open up a shop (even after a brutal destash) I thought I would share with you my kind of go-to skincare products on an everyday basis when my skin isn't acting up too much and then I'm going to do a blog post soon which  is all about what products I use for when my skin is being problematic and breaking out and really oily which tends to be worse when it's around that time of the month usually.

Incorporating My Personality & Style Into My Home *

*This post is in collaboration with Julian Charles
Even though I still live at home I like to add a touch of my personality and my current favourite interior looks into pretty much every room in the house. My mum and dad are pretty chilled so they don't mind if I buy a lamp, plant or candle and whatever else to pop into the living room, kitchen or bathroom. Obviously with my room being my own personal space it shows my taste in home and interiors more so than anywhere else in the house. In this post which is in collaboration with Julian Charles who sell luxury soft furnishings and home decor I will be talking about who inspires my taste in home and interiors and also why I love how my bedroom is currently styled. It may not be huge and nowhere near perfect but it's good enough for me and it's just my cosy little safe place and I love it.

My Best of 2018

I thought I'd do a "Best of 2018" post as I didn't do one last year for 2017 and I feel like I do have a fair amount of things I want to talk about which been great over the past year. I'm talking about Skincare, Makeup, Hair Care, TV shows, Movies and Music in this post. So yeah, there's a lot to get through so I'm just going to get on with it because it's going to be a very long post!

Trying Out The 30-Day Chewable Vitamins and Lash and Brow Enhancing Serum From Hairburst!

I was planning to write and upload this post before Christmas but everything got a bit much and I ended up leaving a few blog posts I'd planned to have up before Christmas and wait until after Christmas when everything had calmed down a little. So here is my review of the Hairburst Chewable Vitamins - 1 Month Supply £19.99* and Hairburst Lash and Brow Enhancing Serum RRP £32.99*. I think I started to use both around October/November time (it's definitely been over a month, I know that!) and I thought it was about time I shared my thoughts on whether I think they worked and if I'd recommend their products.
