Happy New Year everyone! It’s half past midnight here so we’re now in our jammies after seeing the new year in whilst on the phone to my mum which was lovely. It’s been a difficult year for everyone to say the least but there were many highs in my world still to be had, notContinue reading “31/12/20 – New Year’s Eve!”
We have had such a lovely Christmas! It definitely wasn’t the norm as it was mine and Nic’s first Christmas spent together and my first Christmas away from Cardiff. But we went on a gloriously sunny winter walk, made a wonderful dinner together (with the best roasties I’ve ever had) and watched lots of moviesContinue reading “25/12/20 – Merry Christmas everyone!”
I’ve got my Christmas nails ready to go! We managed to tidy all the house, I wrapped all my presents, and then had time for a little me time. I’m still exhausted and finding it hard to wind down from life right now. Sleeping badly isn’t helping. But tomorrow I’m hoping a long run willContinue reading “21/12/20 – Christmas prep!”
Life is quite hard right now, but I take solice in this blog as I know soon enough I’ll look back and this will all be harmless memories. It’s so hard having all our Christmas plans change last minute. All we can do is try to take less focus on Christmas day as an eventContinue reading “20/12/20 – Cycling to de-stress”
It’s Christmas time!! I’m oh so excited for the Christmas break. Even though it’ll be a quiet one this year I’m really looking forward to going home and having some time off from work. Due to all our holidays being cancelled I think we’ve just not had time to reset since March. Two weeks toContinue reading “08/12/20 – Get ya baubles out”
Glittery nails have arrived! I’m pretty pleased with these, first glitter gradient of the season with many more still to come I am sure. Especially now with my relatively recent discovery of a peel off base coat – my glitter worries are no more! Bring on the (covid appropriate) festivities!
I’ve finished Harry Potter! I’m now spending the remainder of 2020 finishing off some of my heavier non-fiction books, then it’ll be a smattering of Christmas fictions to see me through to the new year. Reading is something that brings me so much joy. The sharing of ideas, stories and inspirations is a wonderful thingContinue reading “30/11/20 – Reading is wonderful”
When you don’t take any photos in the day apart from that one you took to send to your boyfriend in the other room to make him laugh… Just a photo of me and Isaac Hooten getting some UI design done today on a new project at work. Having a hoot together!
The transition into glittery Christmas Steph has begun… And I am beyond excited! Next stop, sparkly nails, Christmas songs and Nic finding sequins all over the house! Tis the season to be shimmery, go on, you deserve it.
I’ve been letting things slip recently with looking after myself. So last night I took some time to file down and paint my nails in a fun pattern, then after dinner tonight I had a lush soak in the bath reading more Harry Potter. I feel so much better from it and I can’t recommendContinue reading “16/11/20 – Forgotten self care”
