An Update: Hello… Again!

So, it seems I have a habit of falling in and out of love with my blog. I’m annoyed at myself that after starting it two years ago (almost) I haven’t stuck with it more than I have. I’ve had a lot going on the last few months, namely buying a house and the location of my job changing twice since March!

I’m at a stage again now where I actually really want to get back into posting again, and I’d like you all to join me for the ride! This will be the first post that I will have shared on my private Facebook page and that scares me because I was fairly sure no-one knew I had even started a blog, so this may seem a little random to them! I think everyone is always worried about being judged regardless of what you’re doing, but hey, feel the fear and do it anyway!

I have also been thinking about incorporating more lifestyle stuff into the blog, mainly because that will give me more license to write about any subject. Β Having said that, my problem before was a bit of writers block, and not being able to plan far enough ahead with what I wanted to write about, so if you’ve made it this far, please write in the comments below any subjects you’d like me to post about and I’ll see what I can do! 😊

Anyway, I hope everyone is well, until next time…!

Operation: Scar

A slightly odd title, you may think, but this weeks post is the beginning of a little experiment I’m going to do.

I had major surgery on Monday this week, involving a nodule and half of my thyroid being removed. Prior to a month ago, I didn’t know the nodule existed or that I’d have to have any surgery any time soon. So in the last few weeks, I’ve had a number of blood tests done, ultrasound examinations, a biopsy of the nodule – twice – and surgery to remove said nodule.

Christmas Book Wishlist | The Beauty Spot

It’s past the time of year when people start asking what you’d like for Christmas. Unless Chanel Handbags and Christian Louboutin shoes are acceptable gifts, I had nothin’!

Then, I had a lightbulb moment… Coffee table books! πŸ’‘

I’ve quite often noticed books in the background of blog pictures and YouTube videos and they always look great piled together, but they’re nice to flick through now and again for inspiration.

I’ve put together 5 books I liked the look of and created a Wish List which will be winging its way to my nearest and dearest! πŸ˜‰

Pretty Honest: The Straight Talking Beauty Companion – Sali Hughes I love the cover image, eye catching and clearly one for the girls! I haven’t actually read a lot of Sali Hughes stuff, but everyone loves her, so I should totes get on her bandwagon!

Vogue: The Covers – Hamish Bowles Certainly not a ‘reading’ book. I just wanna look at the pictures, plain and simple.

Chanel: Collections & Creations – Daniel Bott I’m a real Chanel lover and I’m hoping this book will live up to my expectations.

Lauren Conrad Beauty – Lauren Conrad Probably the first beauty book from a ‘new school’ reality star. I love LC’s style and can’t wait to try out some of her hair looks that I’ve heard are in here.

New York Snapshots – Carter Berg Manhattan is a fascinating city and I love seeing little gems that you would generally miss if you don’t know the city well enough, so this one will be great to see those little secret haunts of a local!

What do you think of my choices? Any other recommendations you think I’ll like? Please comment and let me know this list certainly is not exhausted!
