2018 - The Journey of my 30th year!

This year I turn 30.  I can't quite believe it because in my mind I still feel like a young girl who is still trying to figure out her place in the world. A girl who is still working out who she is, what she wants from life and how exactly she is going to do it!

I have decided my 30th year is the year I figure out who I am and where I belong in this world.  I am finally going to figure out how to "adult" properly and get my head around all the effectively managing 

I chose the above quote because I feel it sums up exactly my intentions for this year of discovery.  Over the last 29 years, I have let a lot of things shape me into the person I am today.  I do not wish to change my personality, but I am un-confident, full of self-doubt and highly critical of myself.  I want to grow and explore the things that matter to me and not care what people around me think and grow into a confident woman.

There is so much I want to figure out, explore and learn, and I thought sharing them on a blog would be a great way to document it all. It will also make me more accountable and it will definitely push me out of my comfort zone and will hopefully develop my confidence.  I have tried blogging a few times before and I let self-doubt and worry about people opinions of me consume me until I stopped.  

I'm not going to let this happen this time (even if I feel the worry creeping in I am going to push through that barrier) and I will share anything and everything I want to!  Hopefully, I will learn some new skills and who I am meant to be along the way!

So if you're reading this then thanks for stopping by!
I'm really happy you're here!
I can't wait to share the things that matter to me and my journey with you!


Don't you just love it when you get an email telling you there's a sale on ASOS!

I am an avid internet shopper as I don't really go into town to browse (I can't stand how busy it is and how rude people can be!) and I can't resist the lure of an ASOS sale.
It's probably my favourite place to shop for clothes online.
I love browsing the huge variety of items they have and finding the hidden gems and bargains that can boost my wardrobe (not that it needs help)!

Hi there...

Where to begin... 

I suppose I'll start with hi! 

I'm Helen. I am 29 years old and live with my boyfriend in the North West of England. 

I've published a few posts on here but I thought I'd do a little post to give a little more insight into me and my life. 

Hello October...🍁🍂

The sky is cloudy, and it's windy outside.
The weather is meant to be torrential today here in the North West (if the weather warnings on my phone are anything to go by!) but so far only the wind has picked up!
Regardless of whether the weather can decide what it's doing, we are tucked up in our fleecy PJ's watching TV and waiting for the impending rain!

You Beauty Box - January 2017

Its a new month so it's that time again where I get to pick what products I want to sample in my You Beauty Box.

If you aren't aware of what the You Beauty Box is it is a subscription service that allows you to choose samples of makeup/skin care products that get delivered to your door with a few extra goodies thrown in too!

I've been a subscriber of this box for a few years now and I believe it is an affordable way to try new products that I would never have even considered trying before.  Some of the products I have tried have now become favorites in my makeup/skincare routines.

As I said above I believe this is affordable and their pricing structure is as follows:
