Blogmas Day 24: Christmas Eve!

December 24th:

Hey guys,
Happy Christmas Eve!!
We have made it to blogmas day 24,
Unfortunately though that does mean its the end of blogmas, which I am quite sad about,
I have loved doing blogmas this year,
I mean don't get me wrong it was stressful at times trying to buy things in time for some posts and trying to write them up by the end of the day haha, but it's been fun!
If you want to know a few of my favourite posts from blogmas I put together a thread on Twitter earlier,

Blogmas Day 21: Making Hot Chocolate Stirrers

December 21st:

Hey guys,
For day 21 of blogmas I thought I would post a post that's a little on the Christmas DIY side,
I thought I would try my hand at hot chocolate stirrers, I saw these on Pinterest a while ago and basically they're just chocolate on a stick with maybe some toppings added and then you just stir it in to hot milk and it makes a quick hot chocolate,
I decided to try and make one with marshmallows on top as I love hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows on top,

I did a spring walks post a while ago (It was actually my 3rd post on my blog) and thought now the leaves have changed and the trees are getting a little more bare, why not do another post like that?
It was actually quite warm and sunny for autumn but that made for some nice photos, I think.

My Top 5 Tips For Starting Dance

Hey guys,
So today's post is more dance related than usual,
I'm going to share with you my top tips for starting dance,
I have been dancing again for over a year now and I love it so much,
So let's just get into the post then shall we?

*Disclaimer: I am not a professional these are just some things I have read in my year of dancing or picked up for myself through my experience*

1) It doesn't matter how old you are its never too late,
Take it from me, I started at 18, I mean don't get me wrong I danced as a child from about 8 maybe until 9 but then I quit.
I restarted at 18 and I've now been there for a year and 8 months.
I love going to ballet every week, it's super rewarding.

Turning 20 : 20 Things I Want To Do Before Turning 21

For those who don't know I recently turned 20, (You can check out my What I Got For My Birthday post by clicking here),
So it is a little birthday related still haha,
Before we get into the post I'd like to say the inspiration for this post came from Jade Madeleine (You can click on her name to find her post similar to this),
I thought I would change it up a little though and instead of doing 21 things I want to do before turning 21 I decided to do 20, since I just turned 20.
Anyway, let's get into the post,

Turning 20 : What I Got For My Birthday 2017

Wales Holiday

Hey guys,
So a few weeks ago me and my family went on holiday to Wales,
We were going down for my niece's christening, as my sister, her husband and my two nieces live down there,
I took this as the perfect opportunity to turn off my WiFi and take more pictures, especially some blog pictures,
So I thought I would put those pictures into a post for my blog,

*I just want to say I'm sorry the pictures are both landscape and portrait. There were some pictures that just looked better in one or the other*

Day 1:
Day 1 was spent travelling to Wales and arriving where we were staying.

Trying Starbucks For The First Time

Hey guys,

Yes, you read the title right, yesterday I tried Starbucks,
Now the title isn't all true, I've tried Starbucks hot chocolate before when my older sister had one,
But I've never had one of their drinks properly myself, so I wanted to try some other drinks too,
I was torn between a vanilla creme frappuccino, a strawberries and creme frappuccino or the Instagram worthy 'pink drink', which for those who don't know is a strawberry acai refresher with coconut milk instead of water,
Since it's now summer I decided to go for the strawberries and creme frappuccino as I thought summer was the perfect time to try this.

Summer Bucket List 2017

Hey Guys,
Since its now officially summer, I decided to share my list of things I want to do this Summer,
I have never really done a bucket list before and thought it would be fun,
I took off some of the ones that I'm not too fussed if I don't get to do, just to make the post a little shorter, as it's already quite long,
I know I might not get all of these completed but there are some things I hope to complete more than others.
Anyway, let's get on with the list;

French Click Haul And Review

Hey guys,
So last Saturday I ordered some french food and drink from a website called French Click,
They are a website that I believe are based in London,
I had never ordered from here before but when I turned to google I found quite a few good reviews, so I thought since one of my favourite drinks is from France and I cannot buy it over here I would give the website a try,
I'm not going to review the food as most of it I have had in France on holiday, so I know I already love,
But this will be a small "haul" of what I bought and what I thought to delivery etc,
So on with the post,

Throwback: My Favourite Holiday (In pictures)

France 2015

Hey guys,
With summer 3 days away, (I am so excited), I thought I would post a throwback post to when I went on holiday with my family two years ago to France,
It's one of my favourite places and I thought this post would be the perfect way to kick off summer,
I will be posting my summer bucket list soon too and I will hopefully keep you updated as to what I get done off of that list,
Anyway on with this post,
I just put together some of my favourite photos from Summer 2015 in France.

Top 5 Favourite Makeup Brands

Hey guys,
Today's post is going to be my top 5 favourite makeup brands,
I will say before we get into this post that I don't have many brands of makeup at the moment,
Anyway with that said let's get onto the post (these are in no particular order),

1) Benefit
    I absolutely love Benefit, they are the only high end type brand I have tried as of right now but I think they will always be one of my favourites, I love the products and I love the packaging too,
One of my favourite products would have to be Hoola, for ages I struggled to find a bronzer that was subtle enough for my liking and then I tried Hoola and I love it.

2) Maybelline
    I only have Maybelline mascaras really but I love them (I have lash sensational and the colossal volume express mascara), I find their mascaras, when I'm not sure what mascara to wear, are the ones I reach for.

Intro To My Blog

Hi, and welcome to my blog,

I decided to start a blog because I like writing and taking pictures,
So I figured why not put the two together,

This post will be an intro,
Here I wanted to explain a little about my blog,
I plan to post lots of different things on here from things like days out to maybe a few beauty posts,
I might do dance posts sometimes but I don't have a lot of ideas for dance posts at the moment

I plan on putting a lot of time and effort into this blog, as I already have spent a lot of time on the design

I hope you like this blog as well as my posts.
I look forward to writing many more,

See you soon in my first official post,
Hanna x
