We’re on the last day of February and that’s given two months to try out my new planner that I bought for this year. I thought it was about time that I shared a little tour of it with you guys and show you what it’s like.

I ended up buying the Trigg Life Mapper from Etsy when I was looking for a new planner to buy. The planner retails for around £18. I know some people might find expensive but if there’s one thing that I do invest in, it’s a planner. I was really interested in the layout of this planner as well and was hoping that it was going to help out a lot pot aspects in my life. So, I took the plunge and bought it.

A new year is here and I’ve said my goodbyes to 2017. It’s been a weird year to be honest. I underwent a lot of changes and learnt a lot of different things along the way. So, I thought I would share some of the highlights of my year with you.

Blogging

2016 was the year I restarted my blog, which you can read about here. However, 2017 was the year that I decided to migrate from Blogger to WordPress, get a new theme and get a brand new logo. I couldn’t be any happier with how my blog is at the moment, I’m so proud of the way it looks now. The migration from Blogger to WordPress has done wonders for me as well. Everything feels so much more organised and put together. The migration made me feel like I had more of direction with my blog and I’ve been so much more motivated to post and put the effort into my blog. It’s genuinely one of the best decisions that I made in 2017.

Hey, guys! It’s been over a month since my last blog post and I’m really sorry about that. I’ve been dealing with a couple of personal issues so I ended up putting everything on the back burner until I started figuring things out. Not only that but in the run up to Christmas I wanted to spend some time with my family without having to worry about posting. So, I ended up taking an unintentional break but I’m back now! I’m full of ideas ready for the new year and I can’t wait to share them with you all so watch this space.

I’m back with a post that you’ve probably seen a lot of over the past two days. I know that some people love these posts and some people really aren’t a fan but I’m writing it to show off. I’m so so thankful and grateful for everything that I’ve had over Christmas. I know that I’m really fortunate for everything that I was given and that some people aren’t as well off. It’s just a fun sort of post though and it’s a nice one to ease myself back into blogging. So, without further ado, here’s what I got for Christmas.

These aren’t in any particular order to be honest, it’s just whatever I managed to pick out of the bag.

croeso lounge review swansea breakfast brunch

So my Aunt came down from Bristol a little while ago. Since we wouldn’t be able to see her on her birthday, my sister and I decided to go out to breakfast with her and we ended up picking the Croeso Lounge. It was somewhere that none of us had been to yet so we thought it would be nice to try it out.

The Croeso Lounge is part of the Lounges company restaurants around the UK. This one is the second one to open in Swansea. It’s based up in Mumbles in Oyster Wharf. We’ve been to the other Lounge restaurant in Swansea which is the Zinco Lounge and we love it there so we had high hopes for this.

The view from the Croeso Lounge is amazing. We headed upstairs to sit since the bottom floor was a little crowed and we wanted to be somewhere where it was a little more calm. The have massive windows that overlook the sea and it was gorgeous. The sea has always been a calming scene for me so it was something I loved being able to see. I’m always a fan of the way that Loungers set out their restaurants and this one was no different. It always feel quite cosy and welcoming.

For my meal I ended up picking the Vegetarian Breakfast and a hot chocolate. The breakfast came with toast, a fried egg, a grilled tomato, beans, hashbrowns, mushrooms and fritters with some peppers and spinach. The portion size was really good. There was a lot on the plate but it didn’t feel like there was too much. Service was really prompt even though it was quite busy for a Sunday morning. It was a really good, hearty breakfast that kept me full for a while. You can never go wrong with hot chocolate. Since it was a slightly dreary morning, it was the perfect thing to warm me up.

Even though it would take me a little bit to get down to the Croeso Lounge, I think it’s worth it for the atmosphere in the restaurant and the view. Definitely somewhere I would recommend if you find yourself in Swansea.

Whilst September may not look to have a lot included in it, it’s still be a pretty hectic month. It’s been the start of a brand new chapter in my life which is rather exciting! So, here’s what’s been going on.
