Sunday Summary #4

Makeup Revolution Naked Chocolate Palette

Here we are again, another Sunday Summary! I can't believe we're already on number four and into the last week of January. It's absolutely flown by.

Recently I mentioned that I wanted to spend less time sat on my bum on the sofa and more time doing things after work/at weekends. So, on Thursday my nan, my mum and I all headed to a Crochet class at a craft shop in town. It probably sounds like something an 86 year old should be doing and not a 26 year old but I actually really enjoyed it. I thought I wouldn't be able to do it at all and I'd get annoyed with it and wouldn't want to go back the following week, but surprisingly I was able to do it and am definitely going back next time. We only learnt the very basics and I've brought it home with me to practice inbetween classes, but eventually I want to make a hat, a blanket for my bed and even a toy for the cat, which I'm sure he'll rip to pieces straight away. To be honest, it's quite an easy thing to do and it's quite theraputic as well.

Tomorrow (fingers crossed I can book it) I am hoping to go to a spin class after work, which I'm very nervous about. I'm not sure if I can book on the day and if I can't then I may have to leave it until mid week or even next week, but hopefully my sister will be coming with me so it should be fun. Although, I am the most unfit person there is so I should probably start with something a bit less intense to get my body used to it but I just thought those sort of pilates/yoga classes I would find a bit boring so thought I'd throw myself in at the deep end. I don't expect my legs will thank me the next day but I'll keep you updated!

As if that wasn't enough I've also taken up scrapbooking, which I'm not sure if I've mentioned yet or not. I was going to do the Project Life scrapbook, which has shot to fame after Youtuber Lily Pebbles made a video about it, but it turns out to be really expensive. The folder you use is £20 and all the add ons really make the pounds stack up so I've gone for something a little more budget friendly. It's called the 'La De Dah' journal and is very similar to Project Life but the folder was £10 and all the add ones are either one or two pounds, which is much better. I'm hoping to write a proper post about it, once I've got all the bits photographed. I think it will be nice to look back on it at the end of the year!

This week I hit 1,600 Bloglovin' followers, which I am absolutely over the moon about! I can't believe that many people might be interested in what I have to say. Thank you to everyone who has followed and who comments regularly! I have a little resolution/goal for the blog this year and that's to reach 2,000 Bloglovin followers - I would be so, so happy with that! So, before you go, if you're not already, then make sure you're following on Bloglovin here.
