Happy New Year!

Happy New Year 2021 stationery

Wishing you a very Happy New Year, full of love, fun and prosperity. In some ways this year felt quite long and dull but looking back it also feels like it went by very quick (or is it just me?). Anyway, goodbye 2020 and may better things come your way!



Top 7 Winter Skincare Picks


Top 7 Winter Skincare Picks to combat dull, dry skin

With winter finally here the use of central heating and going out into the cold can wreak havoc on the skin, which is why on my wishlist is a series of calming, hydrating and brightening skincare products. Featuring vitamin C and hemp oil, these suggestions will help combat any dryness and dullness caused by the new season's weather changes. 

Will you be trying any of these products?

Staedtler Rainbow 432 Ballpoint Pens

As you know, I love stationery so I wanted to feature it more on the blog and this time I will be reviewing a pack of pens that I received as a gift a while back. 

The Staedtler 432 pens come in bright plastic semi-transparent barrels with matching coloured caps and silver branding on the side of the barrel. 

The pens are ballpoint and a medium thickness. The ink colour is actually much lighter than I expected on most of the pens as you can see in the picture, so if you like bold, intense colours these might not be for you. 

Also if you are using them for the first time or after some time it can be hard to get the ink to start flowing. Something else I noticed is that the silver logo on the barrel fades quite easily however that doesn't really bother me. 

There are a couple of colours I really liked, such as the purple, dark green and the red one (which actually looks more like a hot pink) which I would repurchase individually, but I probably wouldn't get the whole pack again.

Find the Staedtler Rainbow 432 Ballpoint Pens in Tesco and Ryman.

Joggers & Leather

H&M Wool Jumper // Femme Luxe Joggers* // H&M Cut-out Boots // New Look Leather Jacket

At first I wasn't completely sure if I liked this outfit but it's growing on me. I wanted to take the base outfit from the first option on my last outfit post but toughen it up by swapping the shoes for some leather boots and top it all off with a leather jacket. Initially I thought that it was too harsh of a contrast between colours, which is why there isn't many pictures of this outfit as I wasn't sure I loved it, but now I don't think it's that bad. It would probably look even better if the bottoms were more fitted or the jacket was a little oversized but it's definitely not the worst combo out there ha.

Some news I forgot to mention in my previous post is that I gave myself another haircut last week. I cut off about 2 to 3 inches in length and it feels so much softer now.

Christmas Cactus & Other News

Schlumbergera hybrid Christmas Cactus

Yesterday I got gifted a new plant: a Schlumbergera hybrid or Christmas Cactus. It has that name as it flowers during the winter. 

On other news I finished my latest watercolour painting, which you might have already seen in my Instagram stories. Also I hope to be styling a new outfit post soon (probably this week). Oh, and I made Master Ball tier in the Pokemon VGC last week within only 3 days and I'm around the top 1000 best players in the world for this month, which is the fastest and furthest I've ever been, yay! haha.
