9 Things I Have Been Loving Recently

Welcome March!

Ah I do love spring, and I hope March will bring better things and somewhat warmer weather! Although it isn’t promising so far with all this snow (thanks England). Today I am bringing you a few things I have been loving in recent months, from fitness to fashion and beyond! Let’s dive in to the list.

Blogging and writing

Since starting my blog, I have seen a great increase in the quality of my writing. Not only is blogging a great way to connect with new people, it’s a fantastic creative outlet to express yourself! I have been loving sharing my thoughts, opinions and tips to complete strangers on the internet who I have come to know and love, and who don’t judge! It really is an unbeatable community of support and love.

The gym

Up until last October, I had never set foot into a gym in my life. However, with the persuasion of a few friends, I was somehow roped into joining! I am enjoying it so much more now I know my goals, have overcome my gym anxiety and have a routine going. It has been really beneficial to both my mental and physical health and I try to go at least 3 or 4 times per week. I prefer to go in the morning, it helps wake me up and feel refreshed for the day ahead.

Netflix

When I am not drowning in assignments and deadlines, I love to sit and watch a good TV show to unwind. I have recently finished How to Get Away with Murder, which I really enjoyed (I’m a crime show fanatic). I have also just started watching Gossip Girl (several years late to this one, I know) but I am loving it so far! Netflix can be so distracting, and suddenly 5 episodes later half your day has gone! I really am trying to discipline myself with TV time, but with little success thus far…

Simpler makeup looks

This is a bit of a strange one, I know. As much as I love a glam full face makeup look, I have been toning it down recently in an effort to feel more comfortable in my own skin, and it’s working. I have started leaving the house with 0 makeup on (something I would never have dreamed of doing this time last year) even when I am having a bad skin day. I still use makeup and always will, I just also want to love myself as me too.

Denim

Honestly, denim seems to be something I love all year round. It’s so versatile and can be worn in every season. Recently I have been wearing more ‘mom’ style jeans. I seem to be moving away from the skinny jeans and into the more casual/wider leg styles. I have always been a high waisted jeans girl, that will never change! Oversized denim jackets are something I also love, they keep a look casual but add such a nice finishing touch.

Marble print

Yes I know every person and their dog has an obsession with marble print, but I’m afraid I also jumped on that bandwagon last year. I generally use a marble background for my blog flatlays, it’s a great alternative to plain white but isn’t too overpowering. I also love to use marble print in my blog and Pinterest graphics as it helps to make a really eye catching image.

Photography

Since I started blogging, I have really enjoyed picking a camera back up and tuning into my creative side. I have loved creating flatlays and starting to do outfit posts has really helped boost my self confidence too! I have also been experimenting with different editing strategies, camera settings and how to get the best out of my photos!

Pinterest

This is a social platform I am still getting to grips with, but I have been really loving. After I changed my account to business and started to use Pinterest to generate blog traffic, this is when I really began to fall in love with it. Pinterest is one of the first places I head when I am lacking inspiration, there’s always something new on there! It’s also a great way to discover new blog posts too.

Checkerboard print

In the past few months, I have started to love and obsess over anything checkerboard print. It seems to have become really popular, and this is definitely a trend I am all over! (Even my record player is checkerboard). It’s a great statement print, and currently my favourite way to style it is wearing some high waisted mom jeans with the H&M checkerboard top I own. Here is a very similar one.

 

Thank you so much for reading, what have you been loving recently?

    Don’t stress, I haven’t seen all of Gossip Girl either! I keep getting halfway through the second season then forgetting where I’m up to. I’m sure I’ll get around to it one day though!

    I’ve been more and more interested in Pinterest lately. The platform came out when I was in college and I used it religiously but fell off. After I started my blog, I got back into it and I’ve really been enjoying it!

    Great list! x

    Gossip girl is one of the most fun shows to binge on. I also agree with you on Pinterest I have been falling back in love with it lately, love that it keeps me company on my phone when I have to wait somewhere or travel somewhere – I just pin away and feel productive doing it which is great:)

    I just cannot get into Pinterest no matter how hard I try. I love that your blog hasn’t been such a great outlet for you! I have to admit that mine has been for me and shown me a side to my own writing I never considered! Great post!
