January Haul

The last time I uploaded a blog post was nearly 3 weeks where I said how I'm going to be more consistent with blogging and that I wanted to start posting every Thursday.. hah. I have a valid reason though, my laptop's touch pad broke. I sent it off to get fixed, they sent it back unfixed, my mum had to make various different phone calls, basically I had a right mare! But, it is fixed now and I'm super happy to be back blogging! 

The other day I went into town and bought a few bits so I thought I would show you what I bought. I didn't buy too much but what I did get I really love! 

First I went into Lush and I bought the The Ickle Baby Bot Bath Bomb, The Experimenter Bath BombThe Dragons Egg Bath Bomb (which I didn't take a picture of because I think my mum already used it) and The Unicorn Horn Bubble Bar. I bought my mum, brother and sisters a bath bomb and the Unicorn Bubble Bar is mine. They smell so good and I'm so excited to use my bubble bar this weekend! 


I then went into Primark and bought a pair of black ripped jeans and a blue cropped ish top (it's kind of like a long crop if that makes sense). I really like Primark jeans, they're good quality and they fit me so well and they're only £10! 

The last place I went into was Superdrug and I got the Maybelline Brow Drama and the Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Eye Shadow in Pink Gold. Both of these were £4.99!

And that's all I bought, I hope you liked this post. Thank you for reading!

2015 was hard, I guess. I mean it wasn't the worst year I've ever had, but it's up there on the list. I'm tired of my life being like this and I really, really want 2016 to be better. But I've learnt that I can't just expect it to be my year, have to make it my year. I want to help myself and just be genuinely happy. For a long time, I guess you could say I just expected things to become better all by themselves but I now know they won't and I have to do that myself, yknow? 

Essentially what I'm getting at is that I'm super determined to make 2016 my year, so I thought I'd share my New Year's Resolutions with you. And I know some people think New Year's Resolutions are dumb and think things like 'why wait until the New Year to change your life?' etc, and for me personally, it's because I feel more motivated to do so, I guess?  

Care less about what people think of me. I care too much about what people think and it holds me back too much. I need to do what I want to do, say, wear, etc, without letting other people's opinions affect me because at the end of the day (this is going to be a cliche) it's my life and I need to live it for myself. 

Be more consistent with my blog. Blogging is something I really love doing and I just want to be more consistent. I've wanted a camera for years because I also really love photography and I've saved up and finally bought myself one - I got the Canon 1200D and it's made me really excited to start doing more blog posts. I've never had an upload day before but I've decided that I'm going to post on Thursdays. I may also post twice a week, but I'll always tweet about it, so if you want you can follow my twitter here - @autumnntaste

Go on adventures and make memories.  Truth time: I don't get out much, at all. I'm home/online schooled, I have anxiety and basically it's really hard for me. This year I just want to do things you know, I really want to try and control and deal with my anxiety, because like I said I just can't live like this anymore, I'm tired of it and I just want to live and have fun and make memories, yknow? 

Those three are my, I guess you could say main resolutions? I have a few others too, but I won't expand on those because I don't want to bore you to death haha. 

Appreciate the small things. 

Love myself and be confident. 

Enjoy life and be happy. 

Make more friends. 

Donate my hair. 

Be healthier. 

Say yes to more things and step out of my comfort zone. 

I think these are do-able, I mean I hope they are haha. I hope you've had a great start to the year and leave some of your New Year's Resolutions in the comments. Thank you for reading!
