Sunday Summary - Making Changes

January 04, 2015

With the new year rolling in, i've been thinking a lot about my blog and what I want to do with this little online space that I have. I've been thinking of making a few changes here and there, as I want to make my blog a little more personal in some aspects and to allow more interaction with you guys.
For the past year, every Sunday (minus a few) i'd always put up a 'This Week I' post, in order to show you guys what i've been up to this week and for a chance to talk to you guys a little, but i've felt that those posts really aren't bringing anything to my blog. They are my least viewed posts and I don't see much interaction from them and I want to be able to share more with you guys, in a more chatty way. As you can see the title of this post is called Sunday Summary and is my way of changing my Sunday posts - I may not do one every Sunday, but it will be my way to share more and to chat with you guys.

As for other changes on the blog, I really want to change up my layout and i've already got my eye on a few different blog designers, especially Pipdig as their services seem so easy and they have so many designs. I'm also going to up my interaction with you guys, through replying to comments as I do read every single one, I just don't often get the time to respond a lot of the time. I'm also really thinking of getting my own url and domain but I haven't got the faintest of ideas of where to start - if any of you have any tips, they would be much appreciated

Continuing on with the changes, I really want to step up my fitness this year and really sort myself out. I haven't really made any resolutions this year, but this is one thing I really want to do. If you follow me on Instagram, then you may have seen me post about using my Breville Blend Active (£20) for the first time - and so far i'm loving the smoothies that i've been whipping up with it. It's a great way for me to get a good intake of fruit and they fill me up really well. I'm also getting my bum back in the gym, but i'm thinking of switching gyms as i'm not that happy with the one i'm at, at the minute - but I will keep you guys updated on that one. 

Onto what i've been up to and this week has been a lovely little week of celebrating as I brought in the new year with some of my best friends and it was lovely to spend some time with them, as we really don't see each other that often due to university or work. I also celebrated my one year anniversary with my Boyfriend and I honestly couldn't be happier. We kept it quite simple and went out for a curry as a chilled out way of celebrating, which was lovely and I can't wait to see what this year brings for us.

So over to you - what do you want to see on Style & Splurging this year?

  1. I love these weekly posts, I am a very nosey person! And I was eyeing up Pipdig the other day as they do have some amazing designs, but ended up getting my latest one from Etsy! Getting your own name and url is super easy, I used this tutorial ( ) and it was super easy!
