Daily Blog Post | Number one

The thing I love about blogging, at least with my blog as I haven’t put myself into one particular niche, is that I can write about anything.

Mostly I write about fashion, lifestyle, homeware, but I sometimes like to write about other things too. And I’ve been thinking what on earth can I blog about to give my blog some diversity and I thought I might try my hand at daily blogging.

Now as a disclaimer I’m not promising this to be an every day thing, as you know life sometimes gets in the way but I was thinking it might give me content to share on a more regular basis.

Working full time does limit what I do of a normal day and what I can share of my day but I will endeavour to indulge you in what my day has been like.

I don’t have an glamourous life full of social events to keep you enthralled. I’m just your average girl next door, working during the day and blogging in her free time.

So with that out the way I can began with what today has brought so far for me.

I had work today. I work in retail and have the job of being an personnel admin assistant. I’m lucky that my hours are more office based hours, which allows me every other weekend off. Working in retail that’s quite uncommon. The expectation is most staff work Saturdays and/or Sundays as that is where the bulk of the trade for the week comes from.

I got up this morning and checked out the weather from my living room window. I was greeted by an overcast sky and drizzly rain. It seems that Autumn has well and truly arrived.
And my first thought was ‘oh great, there goes my hair being kept straight’. I know that’s a rather shallow thought to have but if you suffer from frizz prone hair then the slightest sign of moisture in the air sends me rushing for my hair serum.
I did even contemplate wearing a beanie but I thought it’s a bit premature in the season to be wearing one!

So I washed my hair, made it look all sleek and smooth, used some hair serum but alas it was a fruitless task as when I got to work, surprise, surprise my hair was wayward and frizzy. One day I will conquer the frizz!

Anyway I walk to work as it’s an approx. 15 min walk from my flat straight down the road, so it gives me some fresh air and exercise. I arrived at work for just after half past 8 and set down to check my emails. I won’t bore you with the in’s and outs of my job as to be honest I don’t know what I am allowed to share on social media.
It’s not like I have a top secret job but you can never be sure on what companies allow you to share and not share. Just imagine creating staffing rota’s, organising recruitment and staff events and you get the picture.

One thing I liked about today and this does sound so simplistic, but sometimes its the simple things that make me smile, is wearing my new Primark aviator jacket which I am in love with.
It’s so cosy and warm. Despite the effect on my hair, this weather least means I can wear my new jacket.

I finished just after half past 5 where my husband Dan was waiting to meet me. He is so good to me. Most days when he is around (he works from home) he will meet me from work. Even in the rain.
It’s not like I’m incapable of walking home on my own. I am 33 years old, I don’t need my hand holding (much!) but I see it as a friendly thing to do.
We walk home and if I’ve had a stressful day at work I’ll let off steam and Dan will listen. Equally if I’ve had a good day I will share that with him too.
He fills me in on what he has been up to too. This evening we discussed where we would book to stay for a staycation in Bournemouth at the end of the month. We haven’t actually had a proper break away so far this year, so hopefully we will at the end of the month.

We stopped off via the local Tesco’s Express (told you I don’t live a glamourous life!) and then continued on our way home.
I got home and like I do most evenings I get straight into my pyjamas or some sort of lounge wear and chill out on the sofa watching some YouTube videos.

I’ve been thinking of writing a post on cruelty free make up brands as of recent I’ve been wanting to diverge away from those who clearly do. But I feel where do I draw the line? If I start using only anti animal testing brands, that’s great. But then am I contradicting myself by eating meat? And wearing leather and other animal products. It goes on and on unfortunately.
If you would like me to do a post on this topic please let me know. I’m an animal lover and if I can help in someway then I will. I pay to RSPCA, Cats Protection and Sussex Wildlife Trust each month, but I feel I could do more.

Anyway that brings me up to now. I hope you like this post, even if it is a bit of a break from the norm. If you would like me to continue with daily posts please do let me know, equally if this does not interest you then I would like to know.

Thanks for reading.

Love and hugs,

    Love this post! I don't have a niche either and I like the freedom to write about different things. And I share your pain with frizzy hair. I never know what to do, a hat seems to be overkill because it's not cold enough yet but hoods just don't cover it up enough! xLisa | http://www.lisasnotebook.com

      Hi Lisa. Thanks for reading. I use Frizz Ease serum but I've since changed my shampoo and conditioner and it's not as effective. On the hunt for the product that combats the frizz! What do you use? x

    It's nice to hear about your every day life! Fortunately, not all bloggers live extremelly glamourous lives. I agree with you on the cruelty free thing. I'm quite conflicted myself. I try to be consciuous about what I wear and buy but sometimes it's not easy… xwww.serenbird.com

      I certainly like to keep it real that's for sure! I haven't brought much make up recently as I don't want to end up buying a brand that isn't cruelty free. I need to do some research so that when I do I know it's from a brand that are animal lovers xx
