A mid-month catch up: November

Look at me go. Another month of sticking to my word and penning (read: typing) one of these relatively pointless posts that make me feel like a slightly less rubbish blogger.

If you ever found yourself on this blog last year, you may be loosely familiar with this ‘series’ that I think I only ever actually did around five times, which involved taking one item and styling it four different ways.

Perfectionism; the enemy of productivity

Here is a list of things I have done rather than start this blog post, which was the one thing I really wanted to do this evening: Applied some unnecessary lotions and potions to my face Edited some photos Left what can only be described as ‘fuckloads’ of comments on you lovely people’s Instagram photos… Continue reading Perfectionism; the enemy of productivity
