January Instagram Round-Up

Somehow January has come to an end, and as I haven’t got a Favourites post coming (I really haven’t been very experimental with my makeup, so no new additions or rediscoveries to share), I thought I’d use the opportunity to look back at the first month of 2016 according to Instagram. I haven’t been quite my usual Instagram-happy self this month, but as it was my birthday month, there have definitely been some highlights.

This month saw the start of the latest BBC drama War and Peace, and I couldn’t wait for this to begin. The adverts looked amazing, and I’ve not been disappointed – it is so good! I’ve always wanted to read War and Peace, and when I saw this new tie-in addition, I had to pick it up. I’m hoping it’ll entice me to read it!
This month, I joined Slimming World. I put on a fair bit of weight while at university, and I’ve decided that I’m now ready and prepared to fight to get it off again. I’ve got a stash of these quote Instagrams, ready to flick through and post when I’m needing a little motivation or I’ve hit a target.
Oh, look, another “Let’s get fit” motivation post. At the end of the day, I know that getting fit will be hard, but if it’s worth having it’s worth working for right? Sometimes I just need written reminders that it won’t be impossible.

A little #WomanCrushWednesday and #MondayMotivation rolled into one. Khloé Kardashian has always been my favourite of the sisters, and I think she looks amazing these days. I would love to have a figure like Khloé, I mean look at her!
This month, I read Khloé’s book Strong Looks Better Naked. I was sceptical about this when it first came out, but Waterstone’s had it half price, and I thought I’d give it a go. It was so good! It was really interesting to hear her reasons behind exercising and eating healthier, and I loved that she addressed physical and emotional wellbeing. Teamed with a Lush Face Mask, I was set for the evening.
Aww, me and my girlie. Anna celebrated her 21st birthday this month, just a few days before my birthday. I love this picture of us, so had to share it along with a little birthday love.

A good book and a bath – what more could you ask for? I’m really trying to read plenty this year, so far I’ve read three books. Not too shabby! I love finding the time to relax and just chill out a bit, especially where I have to get up so early for work during the week. Sometimes a soak and a read is just what you need.
BIRTHDAY MONTH!!!!! I turned 22 and couldn’t resist sharing a little ode to Taylor Swift. I’m allowed to sing 22 all year right? I don’t know about you…
A little shameless selfie from my birthday night. I had my hair chopped and coloured especially for my birthday and even though it took a little getting used to, I’m slowly getting used to it again.

If you saw Wednesday’s post, you’ll know I attended an event with my local Clinique counter to celebrate the launch of their new eye cream Pep-Start. I was lucky enough to be gifted a little goody bag, with a few samples in which I can’t wait to try.
Following the Clinique event, myself and some of the lovely blogging girlies headed out for dinner and cocktails. Would it be a bloggers’ night out without a table full of colourful cocktails of varying sizes? Of course not!
Ending the month with a lovely action shot from AliceAnna and I were treated like little birthday princesses, with our lovely gifts and a cake! Yum! Thanks girlies!
So this month has been very birthday focused – yay for winter babies!!! You can follow me on Instagram here. Hope you’ve had a lovely month!
Until next time,
Lexie
