I am kickstarting my blog for the new year with a post all about something that's not only fun but also perfect for this time of the year and that is cozy gaming.  As I’ve said before, I’ve been a fan of playing video games since I was a little girl and I find that it’s a great way to take my mind off things, especially my anxiety and health issues. In terms of the games included in this post, I could’ve quite easily included the more popular cozy games such as Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Disney Dreamlight Valley and Stardew Valley which are all games that I do love and highly recommend, but in this post, I wanted to include some games which aren’t talked about as much as the above.

I’m back again for another year with my Main Gifts and Stocking Filler Ideas Gift Guide, I’ve made sure to include a variety of gift ideas, however, there are a lot of beauty gifts featured as I decided not to do a stand-alone beauty gift guide this year just because I'm behind on content. However, if you’re looking for more gift ideas then you can check out my post about 12 Gift Ideas To Add To Your Christmas Wishlist

In today's post, I wanted to share what I've been watching recently. This time, I have just 5 TV shows that I want to talk about, including one popular TV show that I felt a little let down about after really enjoying the previous seasons.

 Being and staying in shape is easier said than done, but it's essential to help you live a long, happy and healthy life. The whole idea of eating well, exercising, getting enough sleep and drinking enough water is easy in theory, but it also takes a lot of self-control to get all of these things in as much as possible. If you’re someone who struggles with self-motivation and sticking to a healthy lifestyle, try these tips below to help keep you from falling off the wagon and ultimately, keep you healthy throughout the winter!

I really enjoy putting together wishlist-style posts so I thought I would sit down and have a look at some websites and see what catches my eye and put together an autumn wishlist. I've made sure to include an array of different things from clothing, skincare, makeup, body care and homeware.

My post about 4 Games Coming To The Nintendo Switch That I’m Looking Forward To Playing did really well, which was quite unexpected considering my blog is mostly focused on beauty content. So I’m back with another post about gaming but this I’m talking about 4 games that are on my Nintendo Switch wishlist and also the reasons why I haven’t picked them up just yet. 

 

In today's post, I wanted to share some TV shows to watch during ‘Spooky Season’. So I’ve put together an array of different binge-worthy TV shows which will cater for anyone looking for a show to watch this October which has either a creepy or dark kind of vibe.

There’s nothing better than a self-care evening, especially if you’ve had a stressful day or week. Sometimes we just need to take some time out to focus solely on ourselves and practising self-care can really help both your physical and mental health. In today’s post, I’m sharing some self-care ideas that I would personally say work best in the evening but obviously, it depends on what time works best for you. I’ve tried to include a variety of different things so you can pick and choose what you like the sound of the most and you could build your own little self-care routine from the ideas.

You may have noticed that Autumn homeware (along with Halloween and dare I say, Christmas?) has been creeping into stores over the past few weeks. I personally can’t wait for Autumn to arrive, I love the inbetween seasons of Spring and Autumn and I’m really not a big fan of Summer so seeing all the cosy homeware arrive in stores has made me excited that we’ve finally reached the months that end in ‘ber’. So because I’m going to be making my home look and feel extra cosy for the upcoming colder seasons I thought I would share 9 homeware pieces that I’ve come across that I think look really cute and cosy and perfect for Autumn.

10 Ways To Up Your Shower Game *

In today’s post, I’m talking about 10 ways you can up your shower game. Not only can showers help reduce anxiety, joint pain and improve cardiovascular health, along with many other benefits, but they’re also obviously cleaner as they evenly distribute continuous water all over your body. Although baths are nice and relaxing, I actually personally prefer having a shower these days as I just feel cleaner and more refreshed afterwards. So here are 10 ways you can up your shower game… 


I’ve been enjoying writing about games and gaming more on my blog as it is something I really enjoy doing and as I’ve said before, I also find that it’s a good way to distract my mind from my chronic pain and also stress and anxiety if I’ve got a lot on my mind. So in today’s post, I’m sharing 4 new games (well, technically 3 games and a DLC pack) that I’m looking forward to playing when they release on the Nintendo Switch. 

As we approach the end of summer and in my case, crave the autumn, I thought I would share 5 TV shows that are coming soon that I’m looking forward to watching. I love autumn/winter evenings when you can get all cosy and comfortable and watch tv/movies. It also tends to be a good time of year for new TV shows and seasons to release. 

-AD: Some of the prints featured were bought with a gifted Desenio voucher-

It’s been a while since I switched up the prints on my gallery wall, so I thought it was about time I gave it a little refresh. This time I decided to go for a slightly 60/70’s inspired vibe when choosing my latest gallery wall prints and I’ve also kept a few of my favourite Desenio prints up as well but I’ve just changed them around a little. If you want to find out more about Desenio, how to get 45% off prints and 10% off frames and also which prints I chose and why I chose them then keep on reading…

If you’re a regular reader of my blog then I’m sure by now you’re aware that I like putting together a wishlist post but I thought that I would do something a little different this week and do an Etsy Wishlist. I try and shop at Etsy fairly often whether it’s for myself or if I’m looking for a gift for someone as I find that you can get quite unique things on there and it’s obviously important to try and support small businesses where possible too. So in today’s post, I want to share what’s currently on my ‘Etsy Wishlist’ as there are a couple of things that are gift ideas but most are things that I like the look of for myself and my home. 

 
Since my last Summer Wishlist, I’ve actually spotted some more things that I’m interested in maybe picking up so I thought I’d put together another wishlist sharing what I’ve currently got my eyes on and why. I’ve got a bit of everything from clothes, perfume, makeup, skincare and a couple of game things too.
