Last year was dominated by Green, the Pantone Colour of the Year before being overtaken by Millennial Pink towards the end of 2017. This year Ultra Violet won the title but as we are finally/maybe/hopefully entering spring, it is already being pushed off the pedestal for a very summery colour indeed: Yellow.
Stay with me, I know it is a scary hue.
Big changes are hard to tackle, so I wondered wheather fixing your routine and making small changes to your day can, in turn change your life.
I couldn’t tell you how many times a day I think to myself ‘I’d love to be able to do this or that’, like give up my beloved cups of coffee, but I never really stop and think about the changes I would like to make. Until now.
Here is my pledge, my early New Year Resolutions, my personal goals – call it what you like! Below is how I have begun to change my day.
When I left uni and began working full-time, I wish I had known these blogging top tips to help balance my time. I’ve been blogging with a full time job for almost three years and yet until the beginning of this year I did not give it, or my social media, the time it deserves.
In those years I have trained to be a journalist, interned for six months and then spent the last two years in full-time employment as a feature writer, as well as freelancing in journalism and copywriting.
I hope you can understand how, with such a busy workload, blogging with a full time job means I have struggled to get my blog and social media following off the ground.
(NOTE that I said understand why I have struggled, not why I have failed.)
It wasn’t long ago that I didn’t know how to pronounce the word balayage (bal-ay-arge). Now not only can I tell you all about it, but having had it done I can tell you how much I love it.
I went along to Chapel Place in Islington to have it done by the amazing stylist Daniel Knight.
Marks & Spencer let me have a sneak peak at their SS17 look book, here are my favourites…
