2018 Goals

Hey Spookies! I know in my Christmas Tag post, I said I don't do New Year's Resolutions because I never stick to them, and yet here I am, making a post of 'resolutions' for 2018. A few things have happened recently that have made me pause for thought, and fuelled some little fires of change. Instead of big, dramatic resolutions, I've decided to set myself some goals that I hope to achieve by the end of 2018.

Blogmas #21 | #CarnLIVal

Hey Spookies! Last weekend I was lucky enough to attend another #CarnLIVal, and as always, had an absolutely amazing time. This time, it was invite-only, so I was thrilled and honoured to have been invited. Katy and Sammy put their heart and soul into organising these events, and it always shows.

Blogmas #20 | I'm Scared of Christmas

Hey Spookies! With Christmas fast approaching, it’s so easy to feel like you must be festive and fun all day every day. It probably seems like everyone else is, but that’s far from the reality for so many people. Some things about Christmas totally terrify me and send me into a mental spin, so here we are, chatting about it.

Blogmas #12 | Liverpool Ice Festival

Hey Spookies! It's a tradition for Freddie and I to go to the Ice Festival in Liverpool every year. This year was no different, of course, and we went this evening after doing some Christmas shopping.

Blogmas #11 | Vegan Christmas Food Guide

Hey Spookies! This is my second vegan Christmas, so I'm very excited to carry on trying vegan Christmas foods to see what my favourites are! I was a little bit nervous about my first Christmas as a vegan, so for any other first-Christmas vegans, here's a big ol' post of vegan food - either tried and tested or bought for this Christmas!

Blogmas #8 | My Cruelty-Free Vegan Makeup Staples

Hey Spookies! I know we vegans can be hard to buy for if you're not vegan yourself, so I thought I'd pop together a little makeup post for you! This post is the lowdown on my daily staple pieces of makeup, to help give some inspiration to those struggling to find gifts for a vegan beauty lover (or a beauty lover in general - everyone can enjoy vegan makeup!).

Blogmas #7 | Christmas Guinea Pig Cage Tour

Hey Spookies! You'll have seen in my haul post that Freddie and I might have gone a bit overboard with the Christmas treats for our furbabies, and decided to decorate their cages for Christmas. It's their first Christmas and we live to spoil them, so why not, eh? Here's a little tour of the piggie's cage, now it's all decorated and festive!

Blogmas #6 | Self Care at Christmas

Hey Spookies! It's the busiest time of the year for an awful lot of people, and it's so easy to get swept up in the excitement of Christmas, forget to take care of yourself, and end up burning out. Even more so if you have any kind of health problems. It's so important to keep on top of self care to make the best of the holiday season, so this post is a gentle reminder to not forget about yourself this Christmas.

Blogmas #5 | The Christmas Tag

Hey Spookies! Whilst I was deciding on my list of post ideas for Blogmas, I thought it would be fun to do a Christmas tag post, so I had a little Google for one. After reading a few, my favourite actually ended up being the first search result anyway! Thank you to Morgan for creating The Christmas Tag and for doing it every year - I've enjoyed nosing through your post answers! Without further ado - here's mine.

Blogmas #4 | Ultimate Artist Guide

Hey Spookies! Supporting artists is something you should do all year, but Christmas is definitely a good time to start! I find art to be a really meaningful gift, as it's something the person will see and think of you always, and can be personalised to make it even more special. Here's a roundup of some of my favourite artists to support this festive season! All of the images used in this post are property of the artists and were found on their shop pages/social media pages. Links to the artists are provided.

Hey Spookies! If you're wanting to show your Christmas cheer without disrupting your goth aesthetic then this is the post for you! I've had a trawl around the web and picked out my favourite alternative choices of Christmas jumper, and I think I've found some good 'uns.

Blogmas #2 | Christmas Pet Haul

Hey Spookies! The one set of Christmas shoppping we've got polished off is for our beloved furbabies. They've got advent calendars, Christmas decorations for their cage, gifts, the whole shabang. Spoiling them makes Freddie and I really happy, and seeing them enjoying new toys and treats is such a delight, so even if it seems OTT, it's totally worth it!

Blogmas #1 | A Little Update!

Hello Spookies! I've been gone for a while, again (no surprises there), but I've decided to dive back into blogging by throwing myself in the deep end with Blogmas, naturally.
