The first day of #jaidemas


Being a full time teacher limits me in terms of how much time I can spend filming, blogging and taking pictures, and over the past couple of months I'd really been thinking about going that extra mile this December. I'm so limited during this time of year as I leave when it's dark, and get home when it's dark, so thought, why not give both blogmas and vlogmas a go and alternate between the two and lets call it #jaidemas 

Over the years I've been a devoted blogmas and vlogmas supporter and have always fancied taking part myself. The reason behind #jaidemas was for me, to document my December and my life, but also, to share more of me with you lovely lot. I've come up with a little timetable which goes a little like this.

December 1st - 7th - Blogmas (8am upload)
December 8th - 14th - Vlogmas (6pm upload)
December 15th - 21st - Blogmas (8am upload)
December 22nd - 29th - Vlogmas (6pm upload)

This works well for me as I'll be vlogging the weeks when I have things going on, like events and social goings on, and blogging when my weeks will be a little quieter and very work focused. You can expect posts and videos that are Christmas focused, general beauty and skincare, fashion and also baking. I've got a few events and things so will be good fun!

Taking part in blogmas and vlogmas is something I think can really benefit someone who shares a lot of their life on social media. Your followers are able to see and hear more of you and become closer to you as a person and not just through Twitter chats. I hope you can follow me and support me on this journey and would love you us all to use the hashtag #jaidemas to chat together. It's going to be so tough, full time job, long days, limited daylight and a slow Macbook, and I'm predicting that coffee will be in high demand but bring it on! I'm ready!

xoxo

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day! I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine. Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down. What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the  Yes To Cucumber  range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try!  It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a

How To Read More & What I Read In May

*gifted items and affiliate links Hi mates, it's been a while!  So, I've had quite a few requests to create a blog post all about how I read so much. Don't get me wrong there are loads of people out there that read way more than me. But I average 4 books a month, however with lockdown in the UK I've been able to rack up my monthly average.  Let's just jump straight in to how I read as much as I do. 1 ~ Choose books you WANT to read This sounds super obvious, however I myself have been known to follow book trends and pick up a book because it's all over the gram, or because my favourite influencer has told me to read it. Doing so can result in books you just don't get in the flow of reading and books you don't want to actively pick up.  Know what genres you like to read. Know what authors you like and do some digging to make sure you pick wisely. Sometimes you will be disappointed with a book that you feel you should of enjoye

Easy To Make Zero Waste Coffee Body Scrub

I'm back on this blogging hype and I'm feeling super inspired to get my space of the internet up and running again. Basically I thought I knew what I was doing in the back end of my blog (theme, settings etc) and for a few months I couldn't do anything until my friends life saver boyfriend sorted it for me! So, lets jump into a cosmetic, zero waste body care at home post and something I'm loving using in my daily shower routine.  It doesn't cost the earth, makes your skin ultra soft, and all you need are things from the kitchen cupboard.   I don't know if you've seen the companies selling coffee scrub or very similar products for around £6 and up, so making something like this thats fresh and uses up a waste bi-product and cupboard essentials means you're saving money as well as saving the purchase of a product!  Items I use in my homemade body scrub: * Coffee Grounds * Coconut Sugar 4tbp * Vanilla Extract 3tsp First things first, the co
