Why I'm Not Making New Years Resolutions for 2020



Hello Lovelies,

If you saw my blog post What's on the Horizon for 2020? then your know that I have written a few things down that I want to do for 2020 both blogging and personal. I wouldn't see these as New Years Resolutions more of what I want to include in my day to day routine to make life that little bit easier and better.

Every year like a lot of us I say I'm going to make New Years Resolutions like doing Dry January which I have failed on so many occasions or go to the gym at least 3 times a week. Lets face that is possible but sometimes life gets in the way and when you don't do something in particular then it feels like you have failed and it all goes down from there.

That is why I'm NOT doing New Years Resolutions this year. I think we make resolutions and stick to them for about a month and then when it gets to February we forget about them. Now don't get me wrong resolutions are good for some people, they see it as motivation to help reach their goal and that is amazing but it doesn't work for me.

I want to feel like I have factored something into my life for the keep like upping my fitness game or eating more healthier not saying I'm cutting out alcohol for the whole of January because lets face facts this girl likes a drink every now and again!

Have you made resolutions this year? 

Lots of love Chloe x

Malteser Tray Bake







Hello lovelies,

I am trying to get back into baking and to try new recipes. Malteser's happen to be Josh's favourite so as a New Years treat I thought I would make an attempt at a tray bake.The fact it didn't include any cooking time apart from a little bit on the hob it looked too good to miss!

Ingredients:
100g Butter
200g Digestive Biscuits (I didn't use the whole amount)
200g Milk Chocolate
225g Maltesers (leave about 10-15 maltesers to add on top)
2tbsp Golden Syrup

Method:


  1.  Melt the butter, chocolate and golden syrup in a low heat pan. Be careful not too over cook the chocolate it doesn't take that long to melt. I melted the butter first then the chocolate and syrup.
  2. Crush the digestives and maltesers and add them to the mixture. I crushed the biscuits with a rolling pin in a food bag but you can use a food processor if preffered. 
  3. Line a baking tin with grease proof paper then add the mixture to the tin.
  4. Add the left over maltesers to the top of the mixture making sure they are pressed in firmly.
  5. Once the mixture has been added cover with cling film or tin foil and place in the fridge to chill and set. I left the mixture in the fridge for about 2 hours. 
  6. Once the mixture is solid cut the tray bake into squares, serve and ENJOY!
It really did taste delicious if I say so myself. I kept the tray bake in the fridge to keep it fresh. If you do decide to make this recipe then please do let me know!

What do you enjoy baking?

The Horizon for 2020



What's on the horizon for 2020?



Hello lovelies,

How is it 2020? A new decade and a new year with lots of new adventures on the horizon. Life has just been so hectic; with a new job to get used to and so many busy weekends, I am BACK with a new blog post all about the outlook for 2020.

No Upload Schedule:

The reason as to why I fell out of love with blogging in the first place is the pressure of uploading. I always used to say to myself that I would upload 3 times a week but I soon realised that was a bit optimistic not impossible but it put so much pressure on me and with a new job. I have told myself that I'm going to upload when I have inspiration and time to write a good solid blog post that isn't rushed. I'm hoping then I will be more consistent and my love with blogging will come back.

Health and Fitness:

Not blog related but I really want to up my fitness and health game this year. I already have a LOVE for fitness but sometimes I go from working out every day to once a week. I feel like now I have found a balance with health and fitness but I just want to keep it up so I see a difference.

Notebooks and Diaries:

Now I know I said I wouldn't have an upload schedule but I do like to write down ideas when they spring on me! Also when I do come up with ideas I like to have a day as to when I'm going to upload them so I'm on top of what's going out on the blog.

Vary my Content:

I already do Beauty, Life, Style and Travel which is a huge variety of content but I want to start making more IGTV videos as I actually find I do enjoy them more. I want to try and do more food blog posts too. I've found a love for cooking (especially baking) so I'm hoping to write more recipes posts.

Support Fellow Bloggers:

Engagement and support on fellow bloggers posts is so important not just for insight but for motivation too. I love it when other bloggers and content creators comment on my posts so I am going to make much for of an effort to comment and engage more!

Here is to another year of adventures and I'm sure challenges in 2020 and I am so excited to see what this year holds for me!

What's on your horizon for 2020? 

Lots of love Chloe x 

Styling The Autumn Work Attire* #StyleSunday





Hello loves,

I am back with another #StyleSunday post and this time it's an Autumnal one. It is OFFICIAL Autumn is in the air so it's time to put away those cute summer dresses and bring out the cosy knits and ankle boots. I think we all know I am a summer girl at heart but I am actually looking forward to the Autumn this year. 

I am styling up this gorgeous Mustard Batwing Belted Midi Dress with these beautiful Menda Black Ankle Strap Pumps from Cucu Fashion. I am super excited to be working with Cucu Fashion on this style post and trying out some of their beautiful pair of shoes. 

I chose this particular pair of shoes as they are a timeless piece and can be worn with any outfit just like this dress. They are closed toe which is perfect for the office and the heel isn't too high but still gives that sophisticated look. I love wearing a heel for the office but I want them to be comfortable enough to wear all day. These shoes in particular have a strap around the ankle so they are secured in place and you don't have to worry about them falling off your feet. These can be styled up with so many different outfits and I did wear them with a pair of jeans the other day but equally they can be worn with a denim skirt and a pair of tights. 

This dress can be worn for any occasion too. I would wear this for the office with a pair of tights along with these shoes for that perfect autumnal look. This dress has such a flattering neckline and I adore the batwing sleeves too, they are so delicate (unlike the name) and the belt just sinches in the waist so beautifully too. 

What are your favourite Autumnal fashion pieces? Have you tried anything for the Cucu Fashion Range?

Lots of love Chloe x 

*These shoes have kindly been gifted by the Team at Cucu Fashion.
