Lifestyle | Where I've Been And My Blog In 2017

Hello Lovelies! It's been pretty quiet around here lately, but I've had a nightmare-ish couple of weeks. Basically I've been ill with a cold for about the last month or so, and that lovely ol' cold turned into one of the worst ear infections of my life, that actually burst my ear and has made me temporarily half deaf. Adding to that I had three long essays to do, so these past two weeks have been a real struggle, but I did it yay. And before I sound like a big pity party, whilst it was a horrible couple of weeks it gave me a blogging break that has made me super super excited about blog content. I have a good feeling about 2017, bring it on.

So what are my plans for 2017? Well first up I've decided to commit to youtube this year. I received an Olympus PEN this Christmas, so I no longer have the excuse of bad video quality. My first video of the year, a Lush Valentine's Haul is actually up already, so go and check that out if you want to.

As far as blogging goes, this year I want it to be all about content. I'm finally going to start my Beauty Detective Series this year, and I'm super excited. It's a series that will be looking at beauty ingredients and products and investigating them. So expect to be shocked and interested (I definitely was when researching!). 

I'm also debating whether to wander back into Dating blogging. Obviously as many of you will know, last year I started The Single Girl Diaries and it was an amazing experience. The only thing is that people like Vix are killing it right now, so I'm not sure I have much to add. But we'll see. 

And finally I want to do more beauty posts. 2016 was a year that I kind of fell out of love with beauty, and it didn't really feature on my blog that much. But honestly I do really love beauty, so I'm hoping that I can rekindle that love this year and do some more beauty posts!

Thank you for reading lovelies! Do you have any plans for 2017?
