12 Things I Achieved in in 2017 // Year-In-Review!


Hey lovelies! It's a bit of an awkward time of year isn't it? You know that stage in between Christmas and The New Year where no one quite knows what to do with themselves, and people are either still hanging onto Christmas songs or planning out their New Year's Resolutions. I've seen so many New Year's Resolutions blog posts lately but whether you agree with the whole 'New Year, New Me' thing or not, I think the more important thing to be doing at this time of year, that people seem to forget... is looking back on what you actually achieved this Year! 2017 has been a crazy year and I've definitely changed a lot more that I realised this year - all it takes is a little scroll through my snapchat memories and I'm shocked! So instead, here's: 12 THINGS I ACHIEVED IN 2017. Some of these are blogging related; others life related goals or mini-achievements that just made my 2017.

My Cosy Christmas Eve Essentials!


Hey lovelies! As I type this it's the 23rd of December (2 DAYS LEFT to enter my giveaway) and although I told myself I wouldn't I really wanted to squeeze in another post before Christmas for you guys!
For me, Christmas Eve for me is just as good as the 25th because it's that day that's the most full of hope, and lights, and christmas magic and kind of like 'the peak' of the festive season. I know everyone has different Christmas Eve traditions (some people even open some of their presents that night?) but for me Christmas Eve is always the most cozy, chilled evening surrounded by family. It mainly consists of hot chocolates, cosy jumpers and way too competitive board games but I always love Christmas Eve and in this post I thought I'd show you my 'Cosy Xmas Eve' essentials in preparation for tomorrow! Hope you enjoy and since this is my last Christmas post of 2017, I hope you all have a lovely holiday and enjoy every minute spending time with the people you love and relaxing this Christmas.

Cute Christmas Tree Brownies! // Recipe


Hello lovelies! Since I just broke up from school this Friday, I am feeling as chilled and Christmassy as ever right now, and it means I now have a whole lot more time for some Festive Baking Posts on my blog now. I spotted pictures of this Christmas-Tree-Brownie idea on my Pinterest 
as something new compared to mince pies  (which I remember making a post for this time two years ago.) This is such a cute idea if you're looking to make some cute treats for friends or family coming round during December, and while I stuck to your typical brownie recipe you could also add all sorts of festive flavours like cinnamon, peppermint or mincemeat to them... it's entirely up to you! So just grab your baking essentials, some chocolate and a whole lot of sprinkles and enjoy this recipe. Also, let me know what other Recipes you'd like me to try out on my blog this Blogmas season? Feel free to drop me a message on my twitter and I will try my best for you guys because Christmas food is my absolute favourite.

Cute Festive Phone-Case GIVEAWAY // Christmas with Caseapp!


Hey lovelies! So if you haven't already entered my first Christmas Giveaway today, *surprise* I'm bringing to you another one on Just Morgs but this time with the help of Caseapp. You might remember a post from a few months ago where I designed and reviewed some phone cases from the company (which I loved and still have on my phone right now!) but this month Caseapp also very kindly offered to let me design some Festive ones specifically to Giveaway to you guys.

I spent lots of time designing these 3x Christmas Cases for you, getting inspo from Pintrest and doing twitter polls to find out which cases were the most popular, and so I really hope you like them as much as I do. Although these cases (from left, to right) are designed for the iPhone 6, iPhone 5s and iPhone 7 these can be both for yourself or to make the perfect festive gift this month. For the chance to win all 3 of these Christmas Phone Cases (worth £40+) just follow the simple steps below and let me know in the comments which design is your favourite!

It's Beginning to look a lot like Christmas // Thrifted Lookbook!


Hello lovelies. So lately with Christmas season and everything I've been doing a whole lot of shopping, and that little spending log in my Bullet Journal for this month... well let's just say I've run out of space! Something I bit new though that I'm really into at the moment though, is thrift shopping and I feel like until now I really having taken advantage of living in London and all amazing vintage stores // charity shops // and thrift stores around here. If you're not fussed about second-hand stuff and know the right places to look, thift shopping is great for finding unique vintage clothes or cheap branded clothes that you might never find again, and in this whole trip I only ended up spending £25 for the items I bought! Anyway it's been a while since I've done any style-related posts so I thought I'd throw in a little Winter Lookbook post for you this week, taking you through a day out shopping in Brick Lane last week. a few new pieces I'm obsessed with, and all the festive photos because this is a December Lookbook after all right? I've tried my best to link all the clothes or similar alternatives  in this post, but since they're thrifted I ended up buying these for over half the price they're actually worth!
