Hello 2018.

Lola cavachonOkay, so I know this isn’t the first blog post of the year, but things have been a little hectic recently. I have been a super busy bee. If the super cute puppy didn’t draw you in, nothing will. You may have also noticed a little change in design! I caved and bought a Pipdig template, as I was just a bit sick of my old one, and I wanted a quick, easy new look.

I wanted to write a chatty, informal blog post and catch up with you guys, and have a catch-up. I have spent a few days puppy sitting this beautiful girl, she is called Lola, and she is a Cavachon puppy, a mix between a bichon-frise and a cavalier king Charles spaniel isn’t she adorable?! “It’s so fluffy” comes to mind, she makes me so puppy broody, yes that’s a thing.

I have also been travelling to London a lot recently, running around kings cross spending far too much money in the 9 and 3/4 platform shop. Of course, we paid a visit to Five Guys, any excuse for a burger we have one up North also, but it just tasted better in London somehow. Don’t ask me why it just did.

I had the dreaded flu for about eight days over Christmas, and I couldn’t eat my Christmas dinner and fell asleep on the sofa at like 6 pm, so I am making up for the lack of calories now. I was surviving on packets of Nurofen and Beechams. I took this time to binge on Netflix shows, some of my most recent favourites are The Sinner, Manhunt: The Unabomber, Stranger Things 2 (obviously) and the likes.

I treated myself to the iPhone X, and I love, love, love the size, the beautiful AMOLED screen and the camera, face recognition however is annoying, I miss the fingerprint sensor quite a lot. One reason why I seriously hated my iPhone 7 plus was its size, it felt like I was holding and carrying around an iPad, so I am a fan of the iPhone X’s smaller size without compromising on camera quality. If anyone were interested in a full review, I would be happy to write a blog post in more detail.

Now that Christmas is over, is anyone else sick of this gloomy winter weather? It never seems to get light for starters, and it’s continuously a mix of rain and snow, grim. I am so over being cold 24/7 roll on Spring. Bloggers everywhere missing that natural light.

I hope your year has gotten off to a good start? Now that the most miserable Monday ever is out of the way?! I am excited to blog a lot more in 2018. I have felt so rushed and busy recently I have missed taking photographs, that’s what I love the most, it makes me so happy to create beautiful images. Photo spam imminent in upcoming blog posts, sorry not sorry.
