The Sunday Post #51

It’s hard to believe that next Sunday is Christmas Eve.

But, I am well and truly enjoying December and trying my best to make the most of it. I am however, completely slacking with the festive films so I’m hoping that next week, all that will change and I’ll watch quite a few whilst wrapping presents.

Just in case you’re wondering about these Sunday posts, you’ve obviously got today’s but then next week will be the last one of 2017. Am I going to continue with them in the New Year? I think so, they always go down a treat and I’m actually proud of myself that I’ll have completed 52 of them this year – one for each week.

My Favourite Instagram Accounts of 2017

Instagram is one of my favourite platforms.

I’m a visual person and seeing photos continually pop up on my feed (not always in the right time order), is a lovely way to round up the day.

As a blogger, it can be a little frustrating when a photo isn’t given the credit it deserves or when your following drops because you haven’t post in two seconds.

My rule when it comes to beating the algorithm is to follow a small number of accounts and with that being said, I follow under 100 accounts. I realise as a blogger, that will be seen as unsupportive but I spend a lot of my time on Instagram liking, commenting and using the explore page to see new accounts.

I thought that seeing as it’s Christmas, I wanted to share the love for ten of my favourite accounts of the year which are in no particular order, just alphabetical. This post is probably one of my most well loved (and surprisingly, commonly requested) so I’m pretty pleased that you all enjoy them.

December is my favourite time of the year and it also happens to be the month of my birthday which is pretty fun as I’m born the day after Christmas so it means double celebrations for my family and I.

I wanted to sit down and write a proper long post about how the year has been for me as it’s almost at the end.

The wonderful team at bakerdays knew my birthday was round the corner and they very kindly sent me a dachshund cake. You can probably guess, but it’s already been eaten by the Mr and I.

They make the most delicious through-the-post-box cakes with personalised messages and the cutest designs. Not only that, but cupcakes are now available as well. There really is a cake for any occasion!

My Favourite Beauty Products of 2017

I’m well and truly settled into the festive period now and I don’t want it to end. Everyone is creating amazing content, people are happy, the markets are jam packed, the films are on TV and the tubs of chocolates have been opened.

Throughout the year, I’ve posted 29 beauty related posts and so for today’s post, I thought I’d do a big ol’ round up of my absolute favourites which I’ve either discovered within the past 12 months or I’ve continually used them and just loved them even more

The Place We Met by Isabelle Broom


Published: 30th November 2017
Michael Joseph
Pages: 416

Β Blurb:

Lucy may have suffered her fair share of bad men, but now she has Pete. Finally, a man worth sharing her favourite place with, Lake Como. That’s if she can put mysterious phone calls and glamorous ex-girlfriends out of her mind. Taggie is rushed off her feet, but distraction is exactly what she needs to forget why she fled England and the sadness she left behind. She certainly doesn’t have time for infuriating stranger Marco. A man is the last thing she needs right now. Lucy and Taggie might not know it, but their lives are about to collide. The New Year might begin with fireworks – but how will it end?

My Winter Hair Care Routine

Well, it’s officially the most wonderful time of the year.

December is by far, my favourite month but with the festivities comes the cold and I’m so careful with both my hair and skin at this time. You’ll all know that I adore Aussie especially their , but when November rolls around, I really love using their Winter Miracle Shampoo and Conditioner Collection.
