BLOG GOALS FOR 2017

It’s nearly been a year since I started my blog and I love it. I’m happy with my content, I’ve been able to go to blogger events and meet some really lovely people. So, in 2017, I want to step things up a gear and put even more time and energy into my little blog. I’ve made a list of the goals I want to achieve throughout the year and hopefully I can look back in 2018 and feel proud…

2017 BUCKET LIST

The majority of us will have a list of activities that we want to do before we pass and mine is probably longer than most. One of my New Year’s resolutions this year is to say yes to more (Read my New Year’s Resolution post here) so I thought I would split my bucket list up each year and try to get as much as I can done to make the mammoth, but exciting, task of completing my bucket list…

ABERDEEN CHRISTMAS VILLAGE

From 25th November, Aberdeen saw the return of our Christmas Village, so of course, to get into the Christmas spirit myself and Blair went along to see what this year had to offer. We started off at Jäger Haus, a wooden crafted hut, situated outside Union Square shopping centre.  Here you can treat yourself to a hot apple cider or German beer while sitting in either a heated seating area or in one of their wooden huts cuddled up in a blanket.…

For 2017, I have thought of a few things I am aiming to do to make the year a good one and I’ve decided to share them with you. GET BACK INTO MY FITNESS By this, I mean both completing in regular exercise again as I have recently fallen off the bandwagon and also eating healthier. This…

CHRISTMAS TAG

I’ve seen Christmas tag posts all over social media at the moment so I thought I would join in. 1. WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS MOVIE? My favourite would have to be either The Santa Clause or Elf, they are two films that really help me get into the Christmas spirit and will watch every year! Saying that, I haven’t watched either yet – must get on that. 2. WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS COLOURS? Up until this year, I’ve always…

CHAOPHRAYA EDINBURGH REVIEW

Not long ago, I took a trip down to Edinburgh to visit my good friend, Willum, for the weekend. As soon as I arrived, we headed to Chaophraya which is an incredibly tasty, Thai restaurant on the top floor overlooking the city. They have a good view of the castle but you will need to book well in advance for a window seat with a view. Thai food is one of my favourite types of cuisine and stepping through the door filled…

CHRISTMAS AT THE BODY SHOP

Earlier this month I got the opportunity to go to The Body Shop Blogger Event in Aberdeen’s store to learn a little more about their Christmas range with a group of other bloggers from Aberdeen. This was my first blogger event so I was excited to finally have the chance to see what one entails, albeit a little nervous too. For moral support, my friends Holly, Jess (who also had never been to an event before) and I all went along together.
