Before starting this post, I should probably acknowledge the fact that it’s been an insanely long time since I posted on here. Sorry (and kind of not sorry because I have a legitimate excuse) but we are back and better than ever! Part of the reason I’ve been gone so long is because I recently transferred from Blogger to Worpress (shoutout to the legend that is Phil for making it so easy) AND my blog is now entirely self hosted – bit of a terrifying concept. It’s taken me a fair while to get used to the WordPress way, as well as trying to teach myself all things self-hosted and SEO but I think I’m beginning to get a grip – let’s raise a glass to Yoast SEO for making my life easier.
Aside from this, I’ve also been working full-time since I’m in the middle of my gap year (post to follow) which, understandably, has given me significantly less time to ramble on here. If you’re a blogger, you’ll understand the struggle of wanting to take blog photos and realising it’s always pitch black when you’re home from work. Nonetheless, I’m trying to get more content up now I’m well and truly in the swing of things.
While I’m sure many of you are now on the countdown to Christmas, I’m on the countdown to going away. I’m very grateful to be spending Christmas this year in Las Vegas as well as New Years in Hawaii. It’s no surprise then that I’ve been trying to pick up a few bits to take with me and I couldn’t help myself when I saw that Nasty Gal were offering 50% off their ENTIRE site. That’s how you do a sale ladies and gents.
I managed to pick up a few holiday bits which I’ve linked at the very end of this post – my favourite being the white dotted shirt. I thought however, it would be useful for me to go through and show some items I love that I didn’t get – some ‘wishlist’ items as it were, because I love reading other people’s versions of these. Sometimes I’m far too lazy to go through an entire site so if you’re anything like me, consider this a helping hand!
