Blog Tips: Starting A Blog

As you may of noticed I created a 'Blogging' page on Flourish & Blotting for the main reason that one day it might be quite a useful resource for anyone either wanting to start a blog, or for those who already have one. And what better way than documenting my own journey? I am thinking of doing a series of these posts, so let me know in the comments if that would be something you would like to see on here.

Profession: Full-Time Juggler

-insert eye roll here - Sometimes I feel completely over whelmed with either the lack of time I have to accomplish things, or the fact that I manage my time so badly I never get things done.

I think I have mentioned previously that I suffer greatly from 'Gremlin' syndrome. So, going outside really isn't viable.

My Nightly Beauty Routine v.1

I am always interested in other peoples night time routine. I don't know about you, but I am always on the look out for new products to improve it or make it easier. We have all been there when the most we are willing to do some nights is to swipe at our face with a makeup wipe and literally show our teeth the brush and that's it. At the moment I think I have everything covered, and it definitely works for me.

Just Your Average 'Jo'

I thought it would be quite nice to do a post about the girl behind Flourish & Blotting, something a little bit more in-depth than my About page.

I'm A Bedridden 'Winter Is Here' Cliche

I tend to over dramatize when I’m poorly, what can I say? I love the sympathy! Don’t worry, I am not really bedridden, I just have a cold. But I did think this was the perfect opportunity to share with you all my go-to recovery products and rituals.

Lust List: MAC Lipsticks
(from left to right; Saigon Summer - Diva - Persistence - Velvet Teddy)

I think I am long overdue for a new lipstick. I do have a certain affinity for MAC lipsticks too even though my collection is so miniscule. Anyway, I am desperately wanting to up my game, lipstick wise, so here are a couple of colours I have had my eye on;
