Hello, February! :)

January felt like it didn't really happen for me, since three weeks of it were all consumed by revision and exams. Exam period always feels like a weird stand still of time, I never know whether I'm coming or going. Thankfully that's all over now, but the results are still yet to come this month :S

February looks to be a rather busy month already; with my results in a few days, classes beginning on Monday, Valentines Day (of course) and an essay deadline for the end of the month so far!

I'd like to start Feb by giving a big hug and kiss to all of my beautiful followers. I can say it again and again but I'll never be able to get across just how much it means to me when I see people following, commenting and enjoying what I write. I really enjoy chatting with you all so much, you guys keep me coming back!

I know there are a few new faces over the last month so I'd like to say a big hello and welcome to you guys too :) I hope you enjoy being here!! If I haven't followed you back please do leave your links below because I love to follow new blogs and GFC often doesn't work and provide links when I click your name! :(

I thought I might also take a little peek at the personal resolutions I made and see how well I'm doing one month on:

1. I managed to read a book this month, so that's good :) It was Rachel's Holiday by Marian Keyes which I will write a review of very shortly! This month I'm reading Yes Man by Danny Wallace.

2. I can't report on my going to class progress because they don't start til next week but I'm still psyching myself up for 7am starts and getting to all my class. I also can't say about whether I passed my exams (not sure I managed this one to be honest!) but I'll know that in a few days too.

3. I've done absolutely zero exercise this month. Total fail on that one...

4. Project 365 has encouraged me to take at least one photo everyday (I know I'm a few days behind but I'll be caught up tomorrow!) so taking more photos is going well :)

5. I've applied for a few part time jobs but had no luck so far, I've joined a volunteer group though so that's positive and I may have some teaching relevant work experience planned for the summer too.

6. One of the last things I wrote was to improve my wardrobe and dress much better, I think I've taken huge steps to achieving this - but since I've posted so many OOTDs recently you can be the judge of that one?

I'd like to think the start of my year has been reasonably positive, which is hopefully a sign of things to come :)

Finally, my recent giveaway will be ending very soon and if you haven't entered you can do so HERE. It's a rafflecopter form so lovely and easy to fill in.

I'd also major appreciate your help with a competition I've entered to win a place in Company magazine's model-free May issue. It just takes two ticks if you click HERE and like one or more of my photos I'd be eternally grateful.

Much love to you all, I hope your month was as positive as mine turned out to be! Let me know what your february plans are! Have you stuck to your resolutions? ♥

  3. Yeah Feb! I do like Jan, because of birthday reasons, but feb means closer to march which is when the winter coat generally gets shoved away!
    Don't worry too much about exercising, it'll be nicer when its warmer!!

  6. Thank you! Yeah I have high hopes for Yes Man, I've read a book by his friend Dave Gorman (Are you Dave Gorman?) and that was an absolute cracker :D xxxx

  8. Hehe, birthday month is always a good month :P I'm really not worried about exercising, deep down inside I know I'll never break free of my far too laid back attitude :D xxx
