i rarely have the opportunity to make a huge effort. however this time as the new year was approaching, i said to myself i am going to get myself organised on what i need to do so i can feel and look good. somehow, with military precision i managed to pull it all off. with time to spare to have a relaxing bath. although i didn't take my camera with me to where i was celebrating i still thought that you might like to see what products i used. i couldn't provide a link but if you are a bit of a bath bomb fanatic like myself and are from the north east please visit the fizzylicious store. it is situated in the village at the metro centre and they have some really affordable products and they all smell amazing!

i have never been big on making new year resolutions, partly because i believe and event shouldn't be the reason for you to make a change in your life. if you are that willing you can do it anytime in the year. however, as i've recently gotten into blogging a great deal i decided i would make some new year blog resolutions as it's a lot more fun. this time next year i would like to have a follower count of 1000, which is a high number for me but i want my blog to continue to grow and thus i have to set myself a large target number to aim for! i would also this year like to post more beauty reviews and outfit posts. i know i slack sometimes but i really do enjoy talking about those topics so i promise you will see more over this year. and finally over the course of the year i would like to get a tripod and/or buy a better camera so i can take better photos for my blog. at the moment i'm using a camera which was good when i got it two years ago but it's pretty pants now and every time i take photos i have to move objects around and balance my camera on books and boxes which is extremely unprofessional. anyway, this has been a really ramble-on kinda post but i am extremely looking forward to what 2013 will bring me.

  1. That bath bomb looks amazing, and I can't believe I'm an Avon rep who has never seen any of those petals! Must order some next time.

    Good luck with your resolutions, I'm sure your blog will continue to grow next year and you can reach your target :) I need a new camera too! xo

  6. The bath looks lovely! I've never used a bath bomb from lush (I know - shock horror!), & this is making me want to try them out even more! I used St. Tropez fake tan for my prom & at first it looks awful and patchy but after some hours, it appears smooth and natural!

    1. You really should, they're definitely worth it. Plus they're vegan friendly so you know nothing in them is synthetic :) x
