February Overview

February was a tough one for me when it came to blogging, I felt tired and had more than a few instances of lacking motivation that I think has probably hit us all at some point. I felt as though whatever I did just wasn't quite good enough on here, that my pictures were horrible and that I just couldn't get across my reviews in the way that I wanted to; I'm still working on my writing style as I'm not very happy with it at the moment. I feel repetitive and unoriginal and that's not how I want to come across, do you sometimes get like that?

Anyway, to sum up that little story I'm rather pleased to see the back of February to be honest; roll on March I say! I've already spotted the snow drops at the bottom of my garden and we're now starting to see some beautiful fresh sunny days so things hopefully should soon be on the up.

To summarise February over on my blog I have picked out just a few of my favourite posts along with some that went down well with all of you. Thank you all for the kind words you have left over this month, particularly on my Orthodontics post as that was a scary one for me to publish. Of course I always publish one of my favourite posts each month which is where I share with you four of my favourite blogs to read. I was overwhelmed by the response that you all left, what a lovely lot you all are! It's a pure pleasure to be a part of this blogging community, albeit a small part at that.

From low end to high end I also featured some of my favourite eye shadows this month. Taking a look at the Rimmel Eye Shadow Paints was a hit with you all and rightly so, those eye shadows are amazing! At the higher end of the scale I also looked at a quad from Bobbi Brown which was my first delve into the brand leaving me super impressed.

Whilst it is very easy to fall into the trap of the new products that are released I think we would all find ourselves rather lost without a few beauty necessities. Take a look at my beauty essentials post to see what I rely on the most.

Thank you for all of your continued support everybody.

  3. I know what you mean - I've had no energy or even much of an inclination to blog over the past few moths! I was hoping to get back on track at the beginning of the year, and have blogged sporadically, but yesterday was the first time in ages I finally got my mojo back and managed to get lots of posts prepped - between today and yesterday I've done thirteen, so think I'm definitely back on form now, finally! Ha. I also know what you mean about feeling unoriginal - it's so hard not to in the beauty blogging world, as there is just so much content about, and so, SO many beauty bloggers these days.
    Hope you're having a lovely weekend - looking forward to hear more about the orthodontics soon.

    1. I go through stages of being super motivated but I've found myself struggling the last few months. That's a huge amount to get done in one day, well done you! :)

      It sure is hard to stand out in the beauty community I agree, I'll just keep on doing what I'm doing I guess. Hope you have a great weekend too and yes I will do an update on Orthodontics soon, thanks Mel! :) xx

  7. I do love your blog, Amy! I think your writing style is great! :)
    I felt the about mine earlier this month, how I wanted to change the name, the layout, the photos, the repetitive style etc. etc. It's only natural to think about this every now then, as long as you get a positive outcome from it... and you have! I also think your monthly overview posts are great! :)

    1. Ahh thank you so much Olivia, it's always so nice to hear positive feedback, especially when you're feeling a bit down about things. I really appreciate that :)

      Super pleased you like these overview posts, I wanted to start them towards the end of last year but thought I would wait until the beginning of 2014 to kick them off. Thank you :) xxx
