A NEW YEARS PROMISE

So before I started typing this post, I had a little bit of time to reflect and to consider all the amazing things that have happened to me this year, from incredible blog opportunities, career promotions, having a beautiful home and a faultless group of friends and family it really has been great. However, it was then that I got a bit emotional and realised that throughout this year I've let so many other great things slip the net because I've struggled to balance my work and social life. It's a lot easier said than done, to simply "make time" and as I write this I'm still not too sure how I'm going to get my shit together in 2016 but I'm so done with being fed up and not putting myself and my health first, and that my friends has gotta change.



This isn't me trying to say that in 2016 I'm totally re-inventing myself, but I've made myself a promise to just generally try and be happier. I'm going to make sure I'm more financially stable, take breaks when I need them, and get my ass back to the gym. Focus on my blog more and really try to grow my YouTube channel, because doing this kind of thing is such a release from a hard day at work or an argument with someone you care about.

I love you all so much and can't thank you enough for the fantastic opportunities you have given me.


See ya later 2015!

THE GET TO KNOW ME TAG - VIDEO

New video alert! If you didn't know already, I started uploading to my YouTube channel and there's finally another video up so head over and let me know what you think! Unfortunately some of the footage has cut off, and after hours of battling with it and trying to re-edit, I gave up and uploaded it as it is..


I hope you've all had a fabulous Christmas and got to spend some quality time with your family and friends. I'll see you again in another post before the New Years, and as always be sure to follow me on all my social media which is linked below!

THE CHRISTMAS TAG

Oh hey ya'll. Can someone please slow down the run up to Christmas? Work is chaotic at the moment and 6 day weeks are wiping me clean out so I can only appologise for the lack of creative content over the next week or so but please have patience. In the mean time I thought I would do The Christmas Tag, and hope that some of you do it too. Make sure you tweet me or leave a comment to let me know when you've done so. Aaaand if you're feeling super stalkerish then go check out my YouTube channel too!


1. What is your favourite Christmas film?
I always seem to find myself torn between The Grinch or The Holiday. Both great festive films and so easy to watch with a cup of tea snuggled on the sofa..

2. Have you ever had a white Christmas?
I'm pretty sure a few years ago it snowed on Christmas, I mean not like in the films where everyone goes out and stands in the street, but I'm about 80% sure that it snowed for about 10 minutes. This could have also been a dream - oops!

3. Where do you usually spend your holiday?
I'm assuming that by holiday we mean Christmas Day, and if so then I spend it at work. I've volunteered for the past three years now and honestly I don't mind doing it. Everyone is always in a lovely mood and people have so much more appreciation for the service because you're there on a day that everyone else in the town is with their families.

4. What is your favourite Christmas song?
The Pogues - Fairy tale of New York

5. Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?
Nope, I didn't realise people actually did this!

6. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer?
Rudolph, Blitzen, Prancer, Dancer.... No

7. What holiday traditions are you looking forward to most this year?
I don't have any holiday traditions but it's nice to get together with all my family and watch the children enjoy themselves. It's strange that the older you get the less you care about yourself and more about spending time with people close to you.

8. Is your tree real or fake?
Fake of course, ain't nobody got time for hoovering up all those needles!

9. Be honest. Do you prefer giving or receiving gifts?
I'm going to be brutal here and say I prefer receiving. Simply because I'm not the greatest person when it comes to choosing gifts... Sorry!

10. What would be your dream place to visit in the festive season?
Would it be really stereotypical to say New York? I just can't handle all the beautiful images that start flying around Instagram at this time of year!! (Insert shameful Instagram plug here..)

11. Do you make New Years Resolutions and do you stick to them?
I usually make the same ones every year. To lose weight - see this post here, and to be more financially stable but I think that this kind of thing comes with time. Next year I want to travel more and spend less time worrying about the little things and start focusing on myself.

BODY LOATHING

This is definitely not something I ever thought I would see myself talking about, especially on the internet where everyone on the planet is able to read it. But recently I've come to realize that I spend every single day disgusted by my body. Weather it's the fact that I'm working so much at the minute and not eating properly, the lack of water I'm drinking, or how little iron I put into my system making me bruise like a peach but It's draining. Everything I try on at the minute I hate, and no amount of telling myself I'm probably an average size for my height is doing the trick.


Image: Pinterest

I pay £35 a month for a gym membership that I've not had the time to go to for over two months. I stuff my face with carbs to give me some sort of energy at work and when I get home I'm too tired and unmotivated to do anything that will help me drop a few pounds.

No one else seems to have realised I look different to what I did 6 months ago but to me it's really getting me down. I need to completely change my relationship with food and drink and prioritize my health over everything else for once in my life, it's too easy to slip off the bandwagon and get into a crap routine of cooking unhealthy food just because I live alone and see no point doing a huge meal for just myself. I'm willing to try pretty much anything as long as I can maintain my energy levels at work due to being on my feet for 10 hours or so a day.

I think body image perception is such an important thing, and not something I've ever had huge issues with but I don't believe anyone should feel as though they don't love the skin they're in. We only get one body in our lifetime.

LETS TALK EGGNOG..



Now if you know me, you'll know I like a good drink around this time of year... or two.. or three.. So when Waitrose contacted me and asked me to have a go at making Eggnog using products from the Waitrose Cellar, I couldn't be more excited. I've never tried Eggnog before, let alone make it so I had no idea how it was going to go. Most people use Bourbon but I decided to go with Kraken Spiced Rum instead and it worked amazingly. I've been sneezing and sniffling all day but with an extra 50ml more rum than required my nose was clear as day. (TMI, sorry)

To re-create my version of Eggnog, you will need:

  • 2 large eggs
  • 200ml whole milk
  • Double cream
  • 200ml, or 250ml in my case of Kraken Spiced Rum
  • Ground nutmeg
  • 25g caster sugar
  • A dash of vanilla syrup

The process for Eggnog is super straight forward, separate your egg yolks and whites and beat together the yolks with the caster sugar. Add the Kraken Rum slowly and mix the egg whites separately. Add the yolk/Kraken mix to the egg whites and eventually add the cream. Throw in a dash of vanilla syrup and serve with a sprinkle of nutmeg on top. Voila! Simple. 

If you try out this recipe be sure to tag me on Instagram so I can see how it turned out! I also vlogged some of today, and although it was filled with me complaining I'm poorly and sniffling - it's still a video. Be sure to check it out here, and subscribe to my channel if you enjoyed it.

AUTUMN ROUND UP

Again, I promised myself to make an effort to write these round up posts every month but can someone stop the world for a minute because my last one was in July!! How is that even possible? These past 4 months have been absolutely crazy, but I'm not going to bore you with that amount of photos so I'm sticking to the Autumn months in hope that once December has rolled round I can stay on top of these posts because I enjoy them, and you all seem to comment saying you do too! As always if you want to check out my previous round up post, I will leave the link here.

Firstly I picked up this amazing dresser for £20 (ish), I went to London for some training and got to try some of the most amazing cocktails at one of our sites. Go check them out here if you're in the Waterloo area because their food and drinks are insane!! Then of course when I returned to work I had to tuck into one of our beautiful pizzas.. 

Next up, I was lucky enough to be invited to the Merryhide event, a H&M opened in our town and they have the most unreal lighting ever!! I was contacted by GoCustomized to review one of their cases and picked up this "Be Happy" case. And finnnnnally, I attended the Wren Kitchen Event in Barton and the bottom three images are of my outfit, some baking we tried and of course Linda Barker who is a total babe! I vlogged a little bit for the first time ever too which was super exciting so I'll link that here if you fancied checking it out - please be nice!

#WRENFAMILYFAVOURITES W/ LINDA BARKER

I'm going through one of those phases at the minute, where I feel like I'm not in control of anything that's going on in my life and time is going by so fast that I'm getting left behind and just working my bum off constantly. So it came as a total delight when I was then invited to the #WrenFamilyFavourites event with a live cook off with Linda Barker! What better way to take my mind off things than to have the evening off work with a group of some of the most genuine bloggers I know, surrounded by cakes and sweet treats?

Of course I responded with a big, fat yes to the invite and took myself along armed with my camera to see what Wren Kitchens have been designing and as you can imagine - the interior designer inside of me was squeeling all night long.

I didn't manage to get many shots as I was too busy falling in love with tiles and mince pies but hopefully you can get the gist of the night and start planning your dream kitchen like me!







I'd like to say a huge thank you to the girls at Branded 3 who hosted the event and also to Linda for being so lovely and down to Earth. I also vlogged some of the night for the first time ever which I'll attach a link to the video here if you want to go check it out, but please have patience as I'm new to this whole YouTube lark.

GOCUSTOMIZED


After dropping my iPhone 6 a few months ago, I became super paranoid about ever smashing the screen again. When did phones become to expensive to repair!? So I was obviously very excited when GoCustomized got in touch with me and wanted to send me one of their cases to try.

You can either personalize your own case by uploading an image or you can use one of their popular designs that are pre-loaded onto the website. I opted to upload my own image which was one I found online a few weeks ago and the print has transferred perfectly! I expected the text to have pixelated a bit but it's exactly the same as the image I uploaded and it only took a couple of days to arrive which was fantastic considering GoCustomized are based in The Netherlands and Belgium. The only downside to the case is that compared to the Apple one I have at the moment it is really slippy which makes me super nervous about balancing it on the arm of the sofa or even holding it in my accident prone hands! Make sure you check out their Instagram page for updates on new designs and inspiration for designs of your own.

GIVING BACK WITH LUXÊMME

Today's post is a little different from the usual ones you might see around this time of year, simply because I'm sure we can all relate to feeling the pressure when it comes to buying fantastic gifts for our loved ones even if we maybe cant afford to do so. That's where Luxemme want to help out, they are giving all of my readers and followers the chance to receive £15 worth of free Christmas vouchers, simply by following them on social media and clicking on this link here. The vouchers can be personalized to whoever you wish to give them to, and can be used on any purchase via their website.

They have a tonne of beautiful pieces to chose from, making them ideal for New Years parties, or even just as a little treat. I personally love their array of jumpsuits - they're perfect for Autumn/Winter and they have an awesome range, including culotte and wide legged ones for a more casual style, but also smart and tailored ones for a more corporate look. I'm also a huge fan of their dresses, and I already have my eye on a couple that I think will be perfect for upcoming parties! 


Will you be claiming your vouchers this year?

FESTIVE HOMEWARES

This is going to be a super cozy, festive themed post so go grab a cup of tea and your slippers before you start reading! Now, I can't be the only one that at this time of year starts burning a tonne more candles, buying more blankets and spending my days off in my pyjamas scrolling through festive homeware and Christmas gift guides. Therefore, It's no secret that I love changing my flat throughout the seasons to keep up with bright colours in Spring and Summer and cozy details in Autumn/Winter, so I thought I'd share with you my favourite festive and Christmassy home accessories and decorations this year from the top brands including House of Fraser, H&M and Next.



Tis' The Season Cushion, Sandalwood & Amber diffuser, Black Tree Decorations, Star Floor Lamp, Reindeer Tealight Holder, Bronze Acorn Decorations.

I am obsessed with copper and silver for the Festive Period when it comes to decorating, especially with a tonne of fairy lights it just sets the perfect scene. The H&M silver tree decorations and the House of Fraser copper acorns will look gorgeous this year on a lightly dusted Christmas Tree, surrounded by beautiful throws and this adorable Tis' The Season cushion! I'm so excited to pick some of these pieces up and really go to town on my decorating this year - who says Christmas living alone can't be glam?

Go see what else my favourite brands are offering here, here and here!

MADE X UNBOXED


A few months back, I was contacted by the amazingly talented people at Made.com and asked if I, yes me (!) - wanted to try out some of their home ware. Now if any of you know me personally, you'll know that the little interior designer wannabe inside of me did a few hundred thousand cartwheels at the thought of collaborating with such an amazing home ware company so of course I jumped at the chance.

I picked out this amazing sofa bed which has already had its fair share of use from friends and family, (no doubt after a few too many glasses of wine) and everyone has complimented on how comfy it is. Whats even better, is that when it's not being used as a bed it fits in perfectly with the rest of my style and colour theme. A few months down the line and Made.com sent a photographer round who managed to get some awesome shots of the little place I call home, (thanks Sam if you're reading) and I'm now featured on the Made X Unboxed page on their website.

I highly suggest you go and check our some of the stuff on Made.com especially if you've recently moved house or even if you just fancy treating yourself. Everything is really affordable and so well made that I can't wait to buy more additions for my flat. Aaaaand finally, if you sign up to their newsletter you also get a £10 off voucher - who doesn't love a discount?

HOW TO: SCATTER CUSHIONS


I was contacted a while back by the lovely people at Sofa Sofa to see if I wanted to try some of their scatter cushions, and as I had just moved into my (then new) flat it had come at the perfect time. I knew what kind of theme I wanted in my living room and they tried to cater to that. Sticking with grey, white and blue tones, my sofa has become the coziest little corner in my entire flat.

I can honestly say I've never had such well made cushions as the ones they sent me. I usually settle for IKEA or H&M cushions, which don't get me wrong are amazing for their range of designs but lack any actual cushion-ness.. If that's even a word? Sofa Sofa have a range of designs that I found a bit more to the mature taste but when paired with stylish high street cushions they make a perfect match. I went with the pastel blue floral pattern to compliment the others that I already had, and I also was sent a green one which unfortunately doesn't look as good as the blue, but I know my mum is dieing to get her hands on it!

PREPPING FOR THE PERFECT HALLOWEEN PARTY

It wont come as much of a surprise that just like everyone else I love this time of year. I no longer feel guilty doing nothing on my day off and people don't think I'm crazy for eating soup every day. It dawned on me the other day that since I have my own place I can get super creative/make as much mess as I want for a Halloween party - fingers crossed I get the night off (if my manager is reading this I'll love you forever)..

Of course I headed straight to Pinterest for some decoration inspo and found so many awesome crafty ideas so I'm sharing a few with you today.


This Pumpkin bottle storage is one of the best ideas I've seen and something I definitely want to try, but I'd probably chill bottles of Jagermeister and spirits rather than beer bottles.. Drink responsibly kids.. One of my friends is also super crafty so as soon as I started to look on eBay for bat bunting she nearly died and suggested we made our own and there are a tonne of ways to do it from bin liners to black cardboard so I can't wait to give those a go! A good mix of dripping candles and the right lighting and I think I'll be good to go. 

I'm yet to come up with an outfit idea which is proving a total pain, and I don't want anything too mainstream so please no Where's Wally suggestions but if you have any ideas I'd love to hear from you. Just leave them in the comments or Tweet me @charlotterumsby.

THE NEW DRUGSTORE MUSTHAVE



So on a mission to curve my make up buying addiction I decided to steer towards more drugstore products rather than spending all my hard earned pennies in MAC. And on a total whim in my local Superdrug, I came across this amazing Revolution blush stick - which is a total dupe for the NARS Multiples sticks.

It claims to be a "blush" stick but this baby is perfect for contouring and it blends like an absolute dream! I even took a small fluffy brush to it the other day and popped it onto my eyelids and I got so many compliments about my make up. They do a huge range of shades so it's a real all round winner. Im even tempted to try it out as a lipstick so fingers crossed its not too drying!

SMART PACKING


So as you're reading this I'm currently away with work for 5 days in London, which is an amazing opportunity but soo stressful trying to find something nice to wear for each day of the week that doesn't involve carrying 30 tonnes of luggage on a 3 and a half hour train journey. 

I've never been the kind of gal to get really organised with my outfits when packing, I'd just chuck in anything and hope it went together - which is usually fine when everything is black or white but I felt like mixing it up a bit this time. I limited myself to 3 simple tshirts and 2 different kind of jeans for trawlling around the city, and of course something a bit more smart for the evenings. Think a mix of high neck and plain, khaki, mustard and grey woolen tops. My new and super trustworthy grey coat from Primark which was an absolute steal at £25! 1 pair of heels and my amazingly comfy Supergas which are no joke the best shoes I have ever purchased. And finally I'm so excited to try styling my new dungarees that I picked up from ASOS as I've not worn them since I was about 5 years old! 

Head over to my Instagram page to see what I get up to in London and hopefully I'll have plenty of outfit posts going live when I'm there! Also if any of yall have any recommendations of where to eat then pleeeasee leave them in the comments or Tweet me because I really want to try some new places!

SEPTEMBER ROUND UP


I love writing these kinds of posts because it's so easy to get caught up in life and forget all the amazing things you've done throughout the month and that the sad looking bank account has all been worth it. Firstly I was kindly invited to the #LadbrokesLadiesDay at Doncaster. I met some lovely girls and had an amazing time sipping Prosecco all day, I wrote a full post here if you're interested! This month saw the return of the outfit posts! I absolutely love OOTD posts and by the feedback you guys give me you enjoy them too - I'm making a promise to myself to try my hardest to feature more outfits on this blog. Next I did a bit of Asos hauling and picked up 2 amazing pairs of shoes, the ever so comfy Superga's and these beautiful New Look boots which ended up being retweeted by New Look and gaining nearly 16,500 views on Twitter *stops for reality check*.. And finally one of my best friends turned 22 so we all took a day trip to York and drank our body weight in cocktails and had a little venture into MAC. 

That's all for this month but I have a tonne more amazing things coming up in October so keep your eyes peeled. As always be sure to follow me on Bloglovin and Instagram to stay up to date with my posts.

INSTAGRAM OUTFIT #2


Now for a gal that rarely gets the chance to take outfit photos, I love the sharing with you the details of the few snaps I share on my Instagram and my first one here went down well so here's another!

If it wasn't obvious, I loving wearing all black all year so it's no surprise that when Autumn comes rolling round I am totally in my element. I paired this super simple outfit with these killer boots from Asos and a really old Primark fedora for a meal out at Ask and topped it off with a leather jacket from Tesco last year.

I loved taking these pictures, and although only one made the cut it's really inspired me to share more outfit pictures with you - even if I kept being told to smile properly! Be sure to follow me on Instagram @charlrumsby for more outfits and life updates.

A DAY AT #LADBROKESLADIESDAY

Yesterday I was given the most amazing opportunity to go with a handful of other Yorkshire bloggers to the fabulous Doncaster Racecourse for some real V.I.P treatment! We where shown to a huge restaurant area and treated to a beautiful 3 course meal (even though I was wayyyy too full for dessert..) We received faultless table service and an open bar, meaning plenty of Prosecco and Pimms was consumed! I didn't think it was wise to take my camera so I've added some pictures from my Instagram instead - enjoy!







Days like this really make me appreciate the opportunities that blogging has given me and I can't help but wait for more upcoming events in the future. A huge thank you to Carrie and Branded 3 for hosting such a fantastic day, and be sure to search the hashtag #LadbrokesLadiesDay to check out all the other girls, and check out this link here to see more pictures and news from the day.

THE RUT

I really didn't want to make this one of those "sorry for being MIA" posts but with it being nearly 3 weeks since I last posted I felt it was about time I made a return. I've been racking my brain trying to think why I haven't posted but once I realised I've been focused on my career it all became clear.


Blogging for me is something I enjoy doing outside of work and my social life but I recently had a promotion at work which means more pressure and hours leaving me no time to cram everything in. So I made the decision that rather than getting frustrated at not being able to post three times a week, I would limit myself to just one - in order to get my blogging "mojo" back.

To make it worse, I've not had the chance to travel at all this summer due to working crazy hours so I'm hoping to get some bits booked for Autumn/Winter time so I can properly relax and put life on hold for a while.

Again, I'm sorry for not being online as much as I'd hoped but bare with me and prepare yourself for some AW outfit shots because it's no secret that it's my fave time of year for fashion.

#LADBROKESLADIESDAY OUTFIT

A few days ago I got a very exciting email pop into my inbox, inviting me and some other local bloggers to the Ladies Day event at Doncaster Racecourse in September and of course I jumped at the opportunity! I'm usually really bad at planning an outfit and always seem to leave it until last minute. That was until we where set a challenge to see who could plan the best outfit for the day, so here's mine - enjoy!


It won't come as a surprise that I headed straight to Asos in hope of finding something Ladies Day appropriate but also sticking with my style. I allllwwaays struggle wearing mega girly outfits for days like this as I prefer more clean cut minimal pieces but this is what I came up with.

I went with the rust coloured dress as it's feminine but will also see me into Autumn/Winter, teamed with these beautiful KG heels, plenty of silver rings and the amazing Quay sunglasses. And of course with it being the UK, it's always safe to have a cover up in the form of this suede tassel jacket - although I already own one if you've seen this post!

Are any of you going to the #LadbrokesLadiesDay? Be sure to follow me on Instagram to stay up to date! http://sports.ladbrokes.com/sports-central/st-leger-festival/index.html

TRAVEL MAKE UP BAG ESSENTIALS


So I'm away at the moment visiting family in Exeter and I thought I'd share with you a mix between my travel make up bag essentials and my daily necessities.

I'm loving a glowy base at the moment and a mix of Sleek foundation and the Dior skin star seem to be working a treat. I picked up the Dior foundation in a shade slightly too dark, but when applied with my trusty MAC Pro Longwear concealer it really brightens up the eye area. I use my Arbonne bronzer as a slight contour and my favourite ever highlighter by Collection (I can't tell you how many of these I've bought for my friends because I get so many compliments), just on the tops of my cheeks and down my nose.

For my brows I'm still using the trusty Maybelline Brow Satin and since I've had my hair done even lighter it looks amazing, and I've got my routine down to 30 seconds per brow! Teamed with the Maybelline mascara and either a shade from my Bobbi Brown pallette or the Nars shadow stick and I'm ready to go.

What are your current make up go to products at the moment?

INSTAGRAM BABES PT. 2

I've somehow gone from three scheduled posts a week, to one post if you're lucky. Things are just so crazy for me at the moment. I'm totally over the whole "feeling guilty for not posting phase" and just focusing on maintaining my love for blogging whilst also trying to have a full time adult life.

Seeing as though my Instagram Babes pt.1 post went down so well I thought I would introduce you to some of the gals that I've been loving recently. I'm well and truly obsessed with Instagram and spend most of my spare time just aimlessly scrolling and getting hair, outfit and life inspiration from the people I follow. 

Damselindior:
Jacey is by far my total woman crush at the moment and absolute hair inspiration - and with 209k followers I'm clearly not the only one. If you don't already you gotta go follow her, and check out her blog.  


Teegly:
Teegan is possibly the sweetest Aussie gal that I've seen in the blogging world. She has great style and an even more awesome IG feed.. I warn you now, brace yourself for the best fringe and teeth you've ever seen. 


Erikabowes:
If you can't tell by now, the past few months have involved me scrolling through hair inspiration since I've gone shorter and blonder and Erika's IG has had a huge part to play in that (and now I want to dye my hair ice silver on a daily basis).. Such fab clean outfits, incredible scenic pictures and the most amazing eyes she's got it all. Go have a nosey and thank me later.


Brittanybathgate:
We all follow that one person with amazing fashion that wears all the great outfits that we would never be able to pull off. Yep this is the one, Brittany's total individual style has gained her an impressive 34.8k followers and she's made it into my IG babes!


And there we have it, IG Babes pt.2 completed. Let me know in the comments if there's anything you want to see more of on this blog and I'll try my hardest. Be sure to head over to my Instagram too if you want more updates, @charlrumsby

IT FINALLY HAPPENED



Firstly let me apologize for being such a hermit on the blogging front recently, I don't know whats happened but I totally lost my mojo. My promotion at work has meant I'm doing more hours than ever and when I get home I just crash. But what better way to get back into it than a little golden love story..

I had never heard so much about a brand but never got round to trying it like I had with Nars. The nearest store to me is over an hour away and I have a huge fear of buying make up online for the first time due to not being able to return it, or get a correct colour match. This was all thrown straight out the window of course when ASOS had a huge sale on, and I decided to take the plunge and pick up one of the Nars soft touch shadow sticks (but I can't remember which shade!) and I've honestly not gone a day without using it. It makes my eyes look brighter than ever and is great when it's juts lightly brushed over the lid for a casual day time look, or teamed with some intense eyeliner for an evening look. I can't wait to bag some more Nars products and get really stuck in.

If you're tried Nars before please let me know your favourite products so I can have a nosey.
