Chapter 2; Positive vibes

Hey lovelies, welcome back again - I hope you're all well.

I'm really getting back into blogging now, I stuck to my word and boy have I missed this. It is kinda a way to offload and I forgot how writing can make me feel refreshed and relaxed. Anyway, I just wanted to share something a little personal with you, not only my style now! Oh this is getting deep LOL, no but seriously. Lately, my anxieties have been a little stronger than usual. (story for another time) but I have combated them and I wanted to share with you how. :)



1. I de-cluttered my very messy room. This was very satisfying. You wouldn't believe the amount of stuff I threw out and put in the loft. I asked myself a couple of questions when sorting through stuff 'when did I last use it?' and if it was over a year ago, I binned it! Also questions like 'do I really need it?' anyway now my room is almost tidy and this was a huge weight lifted off my shoulders.

2. Spent more time with loved ones and less time on social media. This was a massive one for me. I was putting pressure on myself to post on social media regularly etc. But now I'm trying to spend more time with loved ones rather than staring at my phone all night.

3. Sorted out my finances. I wrote down all my outgoings and worked out what I was left with for the month, and made this last.

4. I got myself a diary. My lovely auntie gave me a diary to help me organise my plans. I get so overwhelmed sometimes with knowing what I'm doing what when LOL.

5. Do more of what I love. I got my mojo back lol. I got inspired again and boy does it feel good.



Thanks for reading guys, 
Love
Tash

Chapter 1; The pressure

Hello guys and welcome back to my blog. I'm going to make this like a diary entry or my own little book of self-positivity from now on. 

It's been a while again, this is because I have been taking a break from social media and blogging in general. I had an operation so took myself some time out to recover. (this is a story for another time).

But anywho, while I have been recovering, I have been thinking deeply about my blog. I have been putting so much pressure on myself and feeling incredibly guilty about not having scheduled posts on both here and Instagram and spending more time on my actual Youtube channel (go check my vids out here). I feel I enjoy my time on camera chatting to you guys more, rather than writing. Although, this is where love-laughter-fashion started, this is my baby after all. 



I have realised while really thinking about it, I'm not putting pressure on myself anymore, this is not my full time job, this is not how I earn money, it is purely a hobby - to inspire and share my style with others. I need to remember the reason I started. Now I get so worked up if I don't hear back off companies when wanting to collaborate with them. When really, it's not all about that. If they want to work with me, great! But if not, oh well, I should still share my personal style and totally be a #girlboss. Blogging is hard, it's all about consistency and I'm going to try my best at keeping up with this in 2018.

While I took a break, I thought about ways I could make it less pressure for me, if you like. I mean, making time to travel into the city to take blog photos isn't really convenient for me especially working full time, I don't have the time, I've got a camera and a room? Why not take pictures there, I've started taking photos indoors and not only is it more warm and comfortable, it actually can look quite professional with the right camera and editing. 



Also, just one last thing - I got caught up in losing followers and the amount of likes I got, when really does it even matter? I'm doing this because I enjoy it and because I know some of you guys to! I just hope you guys can understand where I'm coming from and you can take some advice from this if you feel you have been through the same - just be you.

Love you all and thank you for listening to my rant - just had to get it off my chest before I move on onto bigger and better things for both my channel and blog. 2018 I GOT THIS! ;) oh and if you'd like to collaborate email me on natashaturton9@gmail.com 

Love
Tash

Keeping your skin moisturised this Winter C/O Pure Paw Paw Ointment

 Hello guys and welcome back to my blog.


Today I bring you my latest collaboration with a company who I have just come across, Pure Paw Paw. Pure Paw Paw is a soothing and smoothing ointment which is a balm. This moisturises and you can use it on your lips, nails, cuticles, elbows and heels!

The balm is made from natural fruit extracts and although they smell wonderful they are actually fragrance free! And best of all, they are vegan friendly and never test on animals. 



This ointment comes in different scents which smell delicious! I very kindly got sent the Strawberry and Watermelon fragrance and I was so glad as I love these scents in particular. They also come in grape and passion fruit scent to. They are actually 25g, which makes them a good size for your handbag!



Why use Pure Paw Paw this winter?

This will help soothe and moisturise skin during Winter and keep it looking it's best! From personal experience I have used this on my lips as I get really dry lips during Winter. You literally only need a little dot and a little goes a long way! Which means it is going to last me during the whole Season!

Thank you guys at Pure Paw Paw for bringing such a good remedy for Winter this year.

Have a gooden',
Love
Tash

Joanie Christmas Party Event!

Hello you lovely people and welcome back to my blog.


It's very almost December, pretty much in arms reach! I'm so excited for the festive month to be here. I love Christmas, it is most definitely the most favourite part of the year for me, personally. Apart from my birthday when this is just my day and I don't have to share it with everybody else! (LOL, jokes of course).  


I got invited to my first Christmas party of the year! The party was based in the heart of Manchester at a location called Leaf, on Portland street. It was the launch of the A/W collection of the lovely brand, Joanie. (If you are not aware of the brand Joanie, the gorgeous clothing is vintage inspired with a mix of mod! Totally versatile for many styles and sizes to, the website includes dresses, outerwear, jumpers and much more. - oh and lets not forget the most beautiful but subtle festive jumpers ;))

I was so excited when asked to attend and jumped at the opportunity and said YES! I was so happy when my lovely friends, Emma (Terrible Tumble) and Imogen from (Imogen Rose) were also attending. Not forgetting, I met some lovely ladies who I already supported through blogging and also some beautiful new faces! If you're reading this it was so lovely to meet you guys and I hope to see you all soon at other events! (I love how events bring other bloggers together, it seriously is one of the best things ever!)

I will add a few images from the night here;

There was an amazing Gingerbread decoration workshop with freshly baked gingerbread and different condiments! This was super fun! Thanks Timeforsweetpea :-)


Just look at all those prints!


Interior goals right here! Thanks Joanie and Leaf for the gorgeous set up. 


Also, singer Becki sings was there to sing us some festive tunes and keep us all in the festive spirit! I absolutely loved her voice and her vintage style! She got me dancing a little which is a big deal for me, as I dance like a robot! LOL!

We also got gifted a gorgeous goody bag at the end of the night, which included some goodies from Joanie themselves, a happiness planner, vouchers, choc and ginger beer! Thank you guys for these lovely gifts and for an absolutely amazing night, one I'll never forget.

Moonstone star studs c/o Moonstone Magic Jewelry

Hello guys and welcome back to my blog. 

I recently received these gorgeous star studs from the following website; https://www.moonstoneshop.com/

I absolutely love them. So first of all when I was on their website, I was spoilt for choice by the beautiful jewellery which is 925 sterling silver can I just add! I fancied some new earrings as this is my favourite type of jewellery to wear.


The customer service was fantastic! Super friendly and a pleasure to work with. Also, the postage was pretty quick to, took less than a week for the earrings to arrive! I was so excited about this because I couldn't wait to style them.

They have a vintage and boho style about them, which I love to add a bit of interest to a plain outfit. 

Moonstone Earrings - Star Studs, click here 
They are $25 or £19.04 - bargain!

I have some good news! Not only is the jewellery silver, but they include the gorgeous moonstone in them. Reflecting a gorgeous blue/purple colour in the light, and looking pearlescent in the more darker lights! 

Thank you guys for reading, and don't forget to check their lovely website out for more beautiful jewellery. Rings, earrings, necklaces, you name it!

Love,
Tash
