Five things linky – May
I’m so excited to be writing my first five things post for our new #fivethingslinky – I hope you’ll join in with the linky! Still not sure what it is? Read my previous post announcing and explaining #fivethingslinky.
So….here’s five things I loved in May….
1. I went self hosted!
This was a biggie for me and something that I’d been researching and wanting to do for a while! I was so nervous and kept putting myself off because I convinced myself I couldn’t do it as I don’t know about coding etc and my blog wasn’t very big. But I found a company I loved the look of and I took the plunge! I’m so glad I did!! My blog has had a little makeover and I’m more eager than ever to build my blog! DEFINATELY my biggest achievement of May!
2. Night out for cocktails
I had a night off, did my make up and went out to celebrate a friend’s birthday! This little cocktail is INSANE…I can’t even remember what’s in it except that it has a raw egg cracked into it before its shaken! We were super unsure the first time we ordered it but it tastes like custard and it’s a definite favourite now! And of course an espresso martini!! We even went to a gin bar where I had Parma violet flavoured gin (it was lush)….I definitely had a fab night out! And even better I woke up with no hangover!! Winner!
3. I found peonies
I’d been looking for some peonies for ages and was constantly disappointed when everywhere seemed to be sold out! But I finally found some in Aldi whilst doing my food shop and they were so beautiful!! DEFINATELY on the hunt for some more again now!
4. Intergalactic lush bath bomb
I love a good lush bath bomb! The intergalactic bath bomb is incredible. It smelt amazing and the colours are gorgeous! And the print in the photo was a prize I won in an Instagram competition at the beginning of May!!
5. My bargain B&M tables
Another little win – finding a great bargain at B&M! These beautiful side tables were £10!!! I’d seen similar online for over £100! They instantly made this little corner of my living feel more homely and I’m still obsessed with them!
I’ve really enjoyed thinking of 5 things I loved in May. It’s so nice to focus on the little things that have made you happy and find positives in the month. Especially as it’s so easy to get bogged down by things going wrong! I can’t wait to see what June holds for me!!
