Blogmas Day 24 - My First Blogmas!

Hi Guys and welcome to Blogmas Day 24!

I can't believe it's Christmas Day tomorrow. I have really enjoyed my first Blogmas, so much so that I started planning it in August! I thought, as it was my first time doing this, that it would be a good idea to end with a summary of how I got on and what I am going to do differently next year.

Blogmas Day 23 - New Year's Resolutions!

Hi Guys and welcome to Blogmas Day 23!

As another year is coming to an end and we are nearly in 2018, I thought I would share my new years resolutions. Then, this time next year, I can reflect on them and see how many I have achieved. I must admit, I am great at setting them, but not so good at keeping to them. Who knows? 2018 could be the year.

Blogmas Day 19 - Winter Fitness Excuses and How to Avoid Them!

Hi Guys and welcome to Blogmas Day 19!

Winter can be a very difficult time to motivate yourself to stay fit, but I'm here to help you avoid those common winter excuses. I have been pretty rubbish at doing any exercise over the past few months, so lets work on it together.

Blogmas Day 18 - My Go To Winter Outfit!

Hi Guys and welcome to Blogmas Day 18!

My go to outfit throughout winter is very simple. Obviously I still like to look nice, because I'm a fashion freak, but I don't put as much effort into my outfits at this time of year. I would much rather be warm and comfortable.

Blogmas Day 16 - My Favourite Things About Winter!

Hi Guys and welcome to Blogmas Day 16!

For this post I thought I would share some of my favourite things about winter. Winter is not one of my favourite seasons, but there are a lot of elements that I do love.

Hot Chocolate! I will enjoy a hot chocolate all year round, but it's so much more satisfying in the colder months. I just love the idea of cosying up by the fire with a hot chocolate in hand.

Blogmas Day 15 - Bake With Me! Snowflake Cupcakes

Hi Guys and welcome to Blogmas Day 15!

If you have been following my Blogmas posts this year, you may recall Day 3, where I made some gingerbread Christmas cupcakes. Well, you can never have too much food when it comes to Christmas right?

Hi Guys and welcome to Blogmas Day 13!

Blogmas Day 12 - Christmas Shopping!

Hi Guys and welcome to Blogmas Day 12!

Shopping for gifts is one of the most exciting yet stressful things about Christmas. I love to see peoples reactions when they open my presents, but finding the right one and fitting everything in is definitely a challenge. As it's Blogmas, I thought I would bring my camera along with me and put together a blog post. Obviously I am not going to go through what I am buying for people, just in case they happen to read this post. I will, however, show you what shops I like to visit and the amazing Christmas decorations around Exeter.

Blogmas Day 10 - Making My Own Gingerbread House! Success or Fail?

Hi Guys and welcome to Blogmas Day 10!

If you haven't already gathered from the fact that this is my 3rd baking post already, I love Christmas themed baking. Although, I thought I would set myself a little challenge with this one. I don't really tend to make gingerbread houses, but when I do I usually buy the pieces already made up and just stick them together to decorate. I was walking around The Range, who have some amazing Christmas things this year, and this caught my eye; a Make Your Own Gingerbread House. The set includes 2 silicone baking trays and a recipe/instruction book, and thats it. So, lets find out how I got on...

Every year when it comes to Christmas I have to make a trip to LUSH. Their Christmas range is never ending and I always tend to break the bank. They also had quite a lot of new ones this year and I could not wait to try them. I think it's safe to say that I was not disappointed.

Blogmas Day 4 - Decorating The Christmas Tree!

Hi Guys and welcome to Blogmas Day 4!

We have only just got around to putting up our Christmas tree and I feel like we are a bit behind. Everyone seems to have put theirs up super early this year! I thought it would be fun to take some snaps and share them with you on my Blog. Obviously, I cannot write too much about putting up a Christmas tree; that would be a very boring post to read. So this is going to be a post mainly made up of pictures.

7 Easy Changes for a Healthier Lifestyle!

Hi Guys and welcome to another Blog post!

I have never been one the fittest. I used to dread PE lessons at school, I would spend most of my day sitting in bed and I always seem to be able to come up with an excuse to avoid exercise. I thought it would be a good idea to share just a few small day-to-day changes that I have made to lead to a healthier lifestyle.

If you follow me on Instagram, you will know how much I love autumn (and if you're not following me then you definitely should, link below). I thought it would be an idea to combine my love of autumn with a few pictures that I took on bonfire night. This is a very random little post, but I have so many pictures that it would be a shame to waste them.

Dressing Up My Room For Halloween!

Hi Guys and welcome to another Blog post!

Halloween is one of my favourite holidays and I love a reason to put up some decorations. I bought some new things this year, but I also brought out some of last years too. I thought I would show you what I bought and also where I placed everything around my room. I wasn't really sure how to write this post, so I apologise if it's a bit like 'this is what I bought and this is where I put it', but hopefully you will get the gist and pick up some ideas.

Let's start with my favourite decoration, all year round...fairy lights! I love to have these draped about, they just make a room feel so cosy. I have two sets this year for Halloween. The first set are these skeleton lights from the Range and I have put these along the headboard of my bed. The ghosts are from Poundland, which I chose to hang on my mirror. You can never have too many lights, right?

Blogging Tips for Beginners!

Hi Guys and welcome to another blog post!

I am very new to Blogging, so I thought I would share my tips for beginners while it's still fresh in my head. 

I have always wanted to start a Blog, but I was worried about what other people might think. My first piece of advise for new Bloggers is to not care about what others think. If you want to write a Blog, just do it! Who cares what other people say? They don't have to read it.

Let's Tidy!

Hi Guys and welcome to another Blog post!

My room was starting to look a little bit messy, so I decided to give it a good tidy up. If you're like me and find it extremely satisfying to see other people tidying up, then you'd better carry on reading.

Let's start with my wardrobe. This quite often gets pretty untidy, because clothes will fall down from the hangers or I will just throw things into the bottom to hide it out of sight. I like to pretend that I have a tidy room when really it is all just thrown into my wardrobe!

So, here is the before...

A Day in the Life...

Hi Guys and welcome to another Blog post!

I don't know about you, but I love to see what other people get up to in their daily life. So, I thought I would share with you what a typical day in the life of me looks like.

6:30am

Wake up. I always find it a struggle getting out of bed in the morning, but I manage to drag myself up after about 5 minutes of stretching. My cats are usually all lined up waiting for their breakfast, so the first thing I do when I get up is feed them.

Fitness Tips - How to Stay Motivated!

Hi Guys and welcome to another Blog post!

I am in no way an expert when it comes to fitness and healthy eating, but I do know that I have certainly found these tips helpful on my fitness journey. Motivation is something that I really struggled with. Before now I had tried to get into fitness a number of times but I just kept giving up. The tips that I am about to share with you have really helped me to stay on track and stay motivated.

Tip No.1

Follow fitness accounts on social media. Seeing pictures of other peoples transformations make me want to follow in their footsteps. Seeing how far other people have come helps you realise that it is possible and if they can do it, why can't you?

My Everyday Make-Up Routine

Hi guys and welcome to another blog post!

Today I thought I would share my everyday make-up routine with you. I am going to talk you through the products I use and also the brushes I use to apply them. I don’t think this post needs much of an introduction, so lets get straight into it.

Firstly, I like to have a base to apply my foundation onto and I use the BarryM Flawless Colour Correcting Primer. I just use my fingers to apply two pumps of this all over my face. This primer helps to reduce redness and fill in your pores to create a smooth base for your make-up.

Get To Know Me!

Hi Guys!

Well, here it is, my first ever blog post...I thought, what better way to start than to introduce myself?

As you have probably gathered from the name of my blog, my name is Andie. I am 20 years old and I live in a small village in Devon. Having finished my A-Levels nearly two years ago now, I am currently training to become an accountant. I studied Business Studies, Economics, Maths and Psychology at AS-Level and then dropped Psychology at A2. As you can see from my choice of subjects and my career path, I am a very Maths focused person, so my blog posts are not going to be very artsy I'm afraid! But, I did not make this blog because I want to be an author or a journalist, I just want to share my views and opinions with you, and be myself. This is something that I would like to look back on in 10 years time and see what crazy things I got up to. I want you all to feel as though you are sat here having a conversation with me and not watching a news report on the TV or listening to some random guy on the radio.
