Instagram Diary | February 2016

One of my favourite things to do at the end of the month is look at all my instagram pictures! I put a whole load of pictures up, and I keep my instagram personal (not just beauty related) so we can all feel like we’re friends and I get to share some of my life with you guys! This month, I dyed my hair pink, so the pictures have a very pretty pink theme! Here are some of my highlights from the month!

Dying my hair pink! –  This was the first time I’d ever been contacted by a big brand to feature one of their products on my blog! I’m sure most people will have heard of Crazy Color, so when they emailed me to ask whether I’d like to sample Candyfloss, I jumped at the chance! I wrote a blog post all about it, and then went on to make a YouTube video about how I achieve my pastel hair. I love being pink; I love that it is unusual and princess. I’m definitely glad to be back to my usual pale blonde/silver now, though, because it means I can wear more and do more versatile makeup.

Spending time with my boyfriend Chris – I’ve been up to London twice in February and Chris and I always make the most of our time together. The first time, we went to Camden to look around the vintage markets and have some shisha. The second time, we lounged around and binge-watched Making A Murderer! We celebrated our 11 months in February, which means next month is the big anniversary!

Blogging, blogging, and more blogging – I’ve really been getting stuck into blogging again. I find that my commitment and motivation comes in waves, but February has been a great month for planning, writing, taking pictures and filming videos! I love it when I can feel myself growing; I’ve gained lots more Bloglovin and Twitter followers over the course of the past month, so I definitely feel like my effort is paying off, which makes me want to do more!

Hanging with friends and exploring Bristol! – In February I spent quite a few evenings with friends and exploring my city. We’ve been for drinks on boats, listened to some live music, been shopping, gone for coffee, discovered new places to hang out, and walked through the park on freezing, windy days. It’s been lovely, and I’ve got a new appreciation for Bristol, and have so much more of an idea on what it has to offer now!

Clean eating – For those of you who read my blog regularly, you’ll know that since Christmas I’ve been on a mostly vegetarian diet as a way of controlling my fat intake. I’m so much more creative in the kitchen, and low calorie meals are becoming something I’m getting better and better at! It’s not about losing weight; I refuse to weigh myself, but it’s about looking in the mirror naked and liking what I see, which I’m definitely doing a lot more of lately!

What have you enjoyed doing in February? Let me know in the comments!

Lots of love,

Such a great way to look back at all the things you've done over the last month.. i'm a sucker for a pic montage they are just too cute! big fan of your pink hair and i seriously need to get back into clean eating i'm hoping since i've booked a holiday in summer it will push me in the right direction xx
