Enjoying My At Home Hobbies Again.

I've never been much of a YouTube kind of girl, I've always preferred to read blogs and look at the pretty pictures. but recently I've found myself subscribing to more and more youtubers. I'm going to write a post soon about my favourite channels just incase I've found anyone that you don't subscribe to. I've been loving watching makeup tutorials and everyday makeup routines, purely because I just find it so relaxing. I love watching people put their makeup on and always wonder what products people are using when I love a look, so this is the perfect opportunity for me to be nosy whilst making a few mental notes on any products that I need to try. The only downside to watching all of these makeup videos, is that I'm learning about new makeup I need to go and buy - my bank balance won't be too happy with me! 

Books & Magazines.
I've finally found myself being able to concentrate on reading a novel again which I'm really pleased about. I've been reading a new novel from Lucy Diamond called 'The Secrets of Happiness' which is based on two half sisters who have drifted apart over the years, but need to be brought back together when one of them seems to go missing. I'm also a big magazine lover and can't help but love to keep up to date with celebrity gossip.

I think I'm finally ready to come back to my blog and I'm very pleased about that. It's been months since I actually spent time taking my photos, writing and promoting my posts and now I'm back. I'm looking forward to catching up on lots of posts from my favourite bloggers and writing up lots of posts of my own. I'm going to make an effort to comment on more blogs as it always gives me a little boost when I recieve comments on my post.

Gaming Apps.
I've got a little to addicted to playing games on my phone and iPad. What started out as downloading Blossom Blast Saga out of curiosity has ended in me reaching level 121 and I've still got more to go - these types of games are just so addictive though! I've also been attemping Candy Crush Jelly Saga which I'm definitely not good at but at least I'm giving it a try. A last game I've been enjoying/secretly hating is Zig Zag Boom - it's so addictive but difficult to do. The games are all free to download too so I'd recommend giving them a go if you're looking for something new.

Colouring Books.
I've always been a fan of colouring books and spending hours colouring in whilst the rain pours outside. I've written about my favourite books and my love for colouring on my blog before so I won't go into it too much. I've got a lovely new Disney book which is basically colour by numbers but it's very intricate and detailed so I can really concentrate on it and watch the Disney characters come to life in front of my eyes. I also had the Harry Potter colouring book for Christmas which is equally just as great - I'm thinking of writing a post on each of these books soon.

What have you been enjoying lately? x

  1. My partner made me download Colour Switch on my phone, it is so addictive but so annoying at the same time! Im also loving colouring at the moment, it is super relaxing.

  2. I love colouring too! I just recently got a new adult colouring book and it's so great to do with a cup of tea and some chocolate truffles hehe <3


  3. For Christmas I had 2 adult colouring books, colouring books are so theraputic I find. At the moment, I'm starting to experiment with creative writing, both fiction and non-fiction, and I am absolutely loving what my musical theatre group are doing too. There is so much positive energy and buzz at every rehearsal!

    Lovely post,

  4. Excited to hear about your fave youtubers - I've fallen out of love recently with Youtube so maybe you can help! I'm addicted to watching netflix series in my chill time!xx


  5. We love watching family vlogs on YouTube! It's fun! & we love uploading our own to look back on! I've spent quite a bit on new makeup because of the YouTube gurus! Haha

  6. Love this post! I could watch Youtube videos for hours, watching vlogs, makeup tutorials & hauls. They're really easy watches and I find them relaxing, like you say. I wish I could find the time to do more reading as once I get into it I really enjoy it, it just takes me a little while to zone out & get fully immersed into a book. Fab post & I love your blog layout - It's so cutesy & adorable.
