Achieving some of my blogging goals!

Achieving some of my blogging goals!

Sorry, I’ve been MIA lovelies, February has been a crazy month for me! My dissertation has taken over my life so I spend most of my time planning my research or taking regular, much-needed naps… but I have had some exciting blog stuff happen and I’ve achieved some of my blogging goals! I thought I would share with you what I’ve been up too, so enjoy…

Blog Brunch

I attended my first blog brunch and met some lovely local bloggers! This was the first time that I met other bloggers and I was super nervous but everyone was so friendly and I can’t wait to attend the next one and get to know everyone better. There’s not a lot of blogger events in the south-west so it’s nice to know that there is a small community of us that can get together and chat!

Urban Decay Blogger Event

This month I also attended an amazing make-up masterclass event with Urban Decay! Another fantastic time meeting some more lovely bloggers and also learning all the tips and tricks on how to get the best looks with the new Urban Decay collaboration with Kristen Leanne! I definitely need to practice as I’m a total novice when it comes to make-up… but hey ho! It was actually one of my goals for 2018 to attend my first event so I’m so pleased that I’ve managed to achieve it.

I know it doesn’t look like much but this month has been really exciting for my blog! It was my mum’s birthday on Wednesday so today I’m taking her out for afternoon tea – if you follow me on Instagram expect loads of pics of yummy sandwiches and cakes!



p.s. how’s your February been?!

    That make-up looks amazing! I’d love to go to an event like that. Your blogger brunch looked so lovely as well, I definitely need to start doing more things like that x

    Blogger events are the best! I’m so glad that you had a great time. February has been quite uneventful for me as I’ve been ill most of the month… I did attend my nephew’s naming ceremony at the beginning of the month which was really nice! He’s absolutely adorable 🙂 x

    Love this! You’re already achieving some of your 2018 goals that great, thank-you for the little update. Going to a Blogger Brunch is definitely a great way of getting to know more blogger, I went to one in Plymouth and loved it! Unfortunately, I don’t know many bloggers around me now.

    Having a local community of bloggers seems wonderful! I wish I had one in my area, because I’d totally join if there were one :)x
