January 2016 Favourites

Hi everyone, welcome to my new feature! I wanted to do something regularly, but not 'too' regularly, if you get what I mean. I also didn't want to limit myself on the content either so, my monthly favourites was born. These favourites can be anything from TV shows, to makeup, to even a particularly nice pizza I might have scoffed.

My Travel Beauty Essentials #1

My travel beauty essentials. Bag from Primark
I planned on posting this blog whilst I was away in Andorra but I kind of missed the boat on that one. Anyway, better late than never! I bought this adorable cosmetics purse on a recent trip to Primark for a bargain price of £5. It really lets my Disney nerdyness subtly shine through.

5 Days In Andorra

Ski School in Andorra
Please excuse the expression - this is me concentrating on the 2nd day of ski school
Jacket - Superdry Sunglasses - Oakley

So, I have just returned from an amazing mini holiday in Andorra, a principality that borders France and Spain. 5 full days of skiing in the Pyrenees, shopping, blogging and relaxing with my One.

Review: Benefit's They're Real! Tinted Eyelash Primer

Before receiving a sample sized Benefit's They're Real! Tinted Eyelash Primer in my Birchbox this month, my first thoughts were, what's the point? Isn't it basically a mascara? I think it was safe to say I was a little skeptical.

Blogging On Location

As a new blogger I think it is safe to say I have never blogged on location before. I didn't really know how difficult it would be, and I kind of took a methodical approach to what I thought I would need (and by methodical I mean a complete stab in the dark). Being in this situation prompted me to write this post to help out some of you other bloggers who haven't done this before either.

Sharing My Shelves: My Andorra Holiday Reads

My Holiday Reads.
I found the whole experience of picking my holiday reads this time round quite different. Gone are the bright colours of summer chick lit, and instead I went for some quite dark narratives!

This Month's Birchbox: Birchbox X Pinterest

I love doing these sort of posts. I do a little squeal of delight when my Birchbox lands on the doorstep. I dedicate a whole night to trying out all the goodies in one go.

My Holiday Prepration Guide

(Sorry my passport isn't the prettiest thing in the world to photograph!)
Bag: Longchamp Last Season Lipstick: MAC's Saigon Summer
Sunglasses: Rayban Original Ladies Wayfarer in Tortoiseshell

It's not long now until I will be swooping down the luscious white mountains of Andorra.. *Shoop Shoop Shoop* Or more realistically doing the snow plough down the bunny hills. I have to admit, I have failed one of my New Years Resolutions already when it comes to this holiday - I am in no way organised. I guess I have just had other things on my mind lately.

My Blogging Highlights; 3 Months In

I thought now would be the perfect time to reflect back on my last 3 months of blogging, and my top 5 blog posts so far. I didn't really know what to expect when I started blogging, I just always knew it was something I wanted to do. I think it is safe to say my confidence has improved in the past 3 months. Flourish & Blotting has really given me something to focus on, a hobby, and even a possible career option.

My Monday Morning Struggles

Is it just me or does the weekend go by in like, a flash? I just don't know where the time goes, and I never feel like I have achieved enough. What is most annoying is; I never feel like I have slept enough. When the alarm rudely wakes me up on a Monday morning my internal monologue is going 'What?! You only went to sleep 3 hours ago!' But in reality it was more like 8 hours ago!

Review: L'Oreal Paris Falsh Lash Sculpt

I was really excited to try this mascara. The unusual premise and design of the brush meant that it would also act as an eyeliner and fill in the gaps between your lashes.

Inside My Little Brown Costmetic v.1

So, I thought I would write a post on what's in my makeup bag, not my main makeup bag as we would be here all day, but the one I carry with me at ALL times. The 'essentials' as my boyfriend doesn't EVER call them.

Wanderlust 2016

Wanderlust 2016
I think it is clear to anyone reading this blog that I love travelling, and not just because of the duty free! Although.. That's an important part of it. I just love visiting new places, experiencing different cultures, and the obvious one, eating a lot of the local delicacies.

Sharing My Shelves: My 2016 Reading Challenge

My 2016 Reading Challenge On My Amazon Kindle
This year I really want to get out of my comfort zone when it comes to the books I read. In 2015 I managed to read 26 books, but this year I want to make it 30.

Flourish & Blotting for 2016

So, I thought I would do a post on my blogging resolutions and what better time than after a little revamp. Up until now I haven't really been organised when it comes to my blog, I think it is safe to say I have been winging it up until now. To be honest, since starting Flourish & Blotting in October I didn't really know what to expect. Whether I would enjoy it, how much work was involved, and most important of all, would anyone even read it?!
