My 2017 Goals

2017-goals-01

Is anyone else super excited for 2017? I know I am. 2016 has been one of those years where I've really learned a lot about myself. I've become more self-aware, more driven and more in tune with what I want in life. I might not be where I want to be in life but I know I'm on my way there.

UK Etsy Spotlight: Planning With C

etsy-planningwithc-01

#Blogmas has been and gone. I wish I could've done a consecutive 25 days; however, I forgot to plan it early enough and I didn't always have time to write up the next day's post! Nevertheless, I managed to get 15 posts done so next year, I'll be as prepared as possible!

UK Etsy Spotlight: Little Paw Plans

This week's featured shop is a shop that I've only recently discovered in November! It's called Little Paw Plans and is run by Deanna. I immediately loved the mixture of kits, doodles and functional stickers.

Bargain Beauty: Bargain Buys

#BLOGMAS DAY 19

The final stop on my Bargain Beauty journey is Bargain Buys. You may know it as Discount UK and it is also owned by the same people who own Poundworld. However, if you live near both, it's worth a look in both stores as they don't all stock the same items!

Superdrug Haul

#BLOGMAS DAY 16

Hi there. My name is Sian and I have a shopping addiction. I used to be addicted to buying clothes but seeing as I've downsized my whole wardrobe to create a capsule one, I've taken to buying into a supersize make-up collection.

Winter Skincare

winterskincare01

#BLOGMAS DAY 13

Cold weather = dry skin for me. As soon as the temperature drops, I like to up my skincare game. I have eczema and sensitive skin so trying new products is dangerous territory. I've lost count of how many times I've broken out in spots or had a reaction to an item so when I find a product that doesn't, I bulk buy it!

My Latest Ebay Purchases

eBay has always been one of those websites that I've browsed on but rarely bought from. I sell old clothes on there when I no longer want them but it's not often I buy!

#BLOGMAS DAY 10

2017 isn't too far away. I can't believe how quickly this year has gone. I know everyone says that every year but for once I feel like this year, it's really true. For me, it's been a fairly consistent year. I've worked on myself and the things I want in life.

A Winter Night In


#BLOGMAS DAY 5

There's nothing I love more than a night in: that's a fact. I love getting cosy on the sofa or in bed watching TV, reading a good book or having a pamper night. There's just something about being warm inside when it's oh so cold outside! Since I am the queen of the night in, I thought I'd share my night in essentials with you all today!

#BLOGMAS DAY 4

Are you loving #Blogmas so far? I'm really enjoying doing a mixture of posts because I'm not quite yet in the full Christmas spirit! Day 4 is another beauty haul but this time, it's slightly different. I'm a huge bargain hunter and even though I love visiting Boots and Superdrug, I also love going to discount stores as they often have discontinued branded products.

Boots Beauty Haul #1

bootshaul1-01

#BLOGMAS DAY 2

Today's post is all about one of my favourite high street stores: Boots!

It is both a blessing and a curse that I work opposite a Boots store and I visit the store at least once a week depending on how much I'm working. I usually take a trip on a Saturday morning during my break before the mad afternoon rush and I always spend some pennies! I have used and abused my Advantage Card and extra points tokens this year in the run up to Christmas; pretty much everyone is getting toiletries from me this year!

My Autumn Shoedrobe

I'm not normally a Marilyn (I'm an Audrey girl) but she nailed it with this saying. Most women have an item of clothing or an accessory that they collect. For me, it's stripey tops, bow hair bobbles and shoes. You can be wearing the plainest outfit in the world and wearing a fabulous shoe can make all the difference.

Who's excited for Halloween? Not this girl! I am one of those people who doesn't do Halloween.

The costume require no work whatsoever and I didn't have o make my face paler or wear a wig.

Capsule Wardrobe 101


I've always been one of those people who has too many clothes. Since I can remember, it's taken me too long to get ready in a morning because I can't decide which top goes with which pair of jeans. Then do I want to wear pumps, heels, trainers? Dressing had become a chore until I discovered the holy grail: the capsule wardrobe.

Warehouse Wishlist

Quality clothing is hard to find. Shopping for clothes and them only lasting for a couple of months is an absolute pain. Why is it always your favourite items too? I've decided to stop buying clothing from Primark and only buy quality pieces. This doesn't mean I'm going high end, it just means that I am only buying clothing that fits well and is easy to take care of.

How To Start A Fitness Routine



Fitness is a hobby that I've had since I was very young. Ever since I can remember, I've done some sort of exercise: dance, hockey, netball, going to the gym. Lately, I've been lacking, probably because I've been overwhelmed trying to balance everything in my life and fitness has taken a back seat. I've always found I get the best results when I stick to a routine. Here are my top tips for making a workout routine work for you:

Easing Back Into Fitness



Regular readers of he English Everygirl will know that I am really into my fitness. However, in recent weeks, I've been trying to follow my Bikini Series programme but I don't seem to be sticking with it very well. It's really hard to find the motivation to work up early every day to workout and to then come home and exercise after a long day at work.

I Am A Sport-Loving Female...


...And I love make-up and clothing. I hate the connotations that women who enjoy sport are manly. I'll admit I'm not the girliest girl in the world but liking sport is not a man-only privilege. I don't just like sport, I love sport, I pretty much live and breathe sport. All day er'ryday.

Beauty Haul


As many of you, I don't really cover beauty that much on my blog. Not because I don't love make-up or skincare, I just aren't really the most adventurous person when it comes to make-up. I suffer with eczema and sensitive skin so when I buy a product I love, I bulk buy it as much as I can and pray that it doesn't get discontinued. However, in recent months since joining in with #BBEAUTYCHAT (Sunday nights 9-10), I've ventured into trying new products.
