At the end of 2014 I decided to set a goal for myself - to make 2015 my year for positivity and living life to the full and I'm happy to say that January has been a fantastic month for me and my little family. I am taking inspiration from a lovely blogger, Angelic from Simply Sinova and am introducing a new series to my blog - 12 Months of Happiness. This series will serve to document everything that has made me happy each month. These posts will act as a fabulous reminder of all the great things I've experienced and had happen to me during the year and I think posting these will really contribute to my key word of the year, positivity! 2015 is the year I choose life, positivity and complete happiness. Here are some of the things that made January an amazing month for me and mine...
Nothing makes me happier than time with my little family. This month we've had lots of time together as Jacek has had some half days from work. We've also had our first family day out of the year to the beautiful Blarney Castle and gardens. I love seeing my boy spending some quality time with his Daddy, he misses him so much when he goes to work.
January has brought so many pretty things this way and I just couldn't help but capture them all on camera. I encountered two seasons in one day and just had to photograph the beautiful yellow daffodils in Blarney Castle and Gardens. I also got my hands on Lush's prettiest bubble bar ever (in my opinion anyway!) Unicorn Horn! Pastel swirled rainbows adorned with stars and silver glitter - if that's not pretty I don't know what is! I also saw these pretty pink table painted with a cupcake and heart tree with bluebirds in Hippetys on mine and Jacek's trip to Dublin, review to come on that gorgeous cafe soon!
1st day at playschool and is absolutely loving it. We also had a lovely time at Fota House and Gardens together where we had some mother and son quality time, getting out of the house that day was just what we needed. My boy also turned 23 months old so I took him to his favourite place, the beach, to get his monthly pictures, I love how I captured my little Aquarius down by the sea.
January brought some new additions to my makeup collection and some where a complete surprise! I received the beautiful Artistry Little Black Dress palette which is such a luxurious looking palette - I love it! It has eight gorgeous shades which I think are perfect for both day and night wear. I also received some gorgeous goodies from IsaDora from their new Nude Essentials Spring Makeup 2015 collection. I received so many things I was seriously in awe. I've already used the foundation and it's amazing. I also received a gorgeous new fragrance from one of my favourite brands Yves Rocher, it's their Comme Une Evidence which I think is the perfect scent for Valentine's Day - I know I'll be wearing it anyway!
January has been quite a romantic month for my other half and I. We had our first trip away together since 2013 when we went to Dublin for the day to see Slipknot and Korn. We did lots of sightseeing and he even bought a lock for us to put our own love lock on the Ha'penny Bridge. He also surprised me with a dozen beautiful red roses for no reason at all. I also prepared a little romantic treat for him too (post to come on this next week) and sang my little heart out to him during Korn's Freak on a Leash... "something takes a part of me, you and I were meant to be...". I'm so grateful that after over three years together romance isn't dead between us.
I really can't believe that it's the last day of January 2015 already, the month has absolutely flown by! My family and I have lots to look forward to in February and I can't wait to see what else it has in store for us. The positivity shall continue in full force!
