Welcome 2016! FREE GIVEAWAY


Sigh** The ball balls are placed in the empty Quality Streets tin and have been returned to their attic abode; ready to gather dust. Christmas presents have been placed specifically in a home to suit and it's no longer acceptable to eat mince pies for breakfast and start drinking at 11am. The reality of leaving the festivities behind and returning to our normal routine is a sad feeling for most and as the long month of January approaches us all, I've been doing a lot of reflecting... Sadly, in the last few months blogging has had to take a back seat. Honestly, I was stressed, overwhelmed and confused for more reasons than one and everyone reaches a point where something has to give right? 2015 brought a lot of surprising challenges for me; I have learnt from them, I feel stronger and after taking a break I've been able to focus on my own wellness and now I'm feeling refreshed and am looking at things from a lighter point of view. 

One of the main learning curves I've faced is to always look at the bigger picture. When you're in a difficult situation or feeling low it's easy to focus on the negatives and before you know it, it seems like the worst thing in the world. You can feel trapped, alone and stuck. I've realised that by taking a step back and thinking logically, taking time to lick your wounds and talk to those you love it suddenly doesn't seem so bad. Okay so I know it's easier said than done and I'm still practicing this myself and I've found it helps to look back at a time when you were feeling a similar way... it worked out in the end right? 

To begin 2016 we decided to pull back the shades, clear out the clutter and have a good ol' spring clean! We treated ourselves to some new bedroom furniture and a couple of treats for our home yano candles, fairy lights... Small things that make a big difference! It really does do you the world of good and even if you can't afford to splash out, Primark certainly have lovely candles that smell delicious and don't burn a hole in your purse. So, to celebrate the new year I thought I'd  kick start my first blog post of 2016 with a free giveaway...

  1. Hey Daneca, great post as always.

    My 'main' New Years resolution is a bit different this year. I intend to be more selfish and put my own needs and wants first before anyone else's. I spent too long last year thinking about other people and how they would feel if something didn't go their way, or if I was to do this or that. This year will he about me, my main focus is to achieve my own personal goals and not let anyway get in the way of that. Hope this year is a happy one for you. Would be great to catch up for that drink soon. Zoe x

    1. Hey Zoe,

      Thanks for your comment! I love your resolution and can deffo relate! If we spend our lives trying to please everyone we will end up pleasing no one and at the end of the day it will be ourselves that suffer for it. I hope the new year brings everything you deserve, would be great to go for a catch up soon! xx
