Hoppin’ into Spring; beauty, fashion, mindset | AD

Honestly, trying to write this post whilst there’s snow on the ground in MARCH is just not happening. I thought we were supposed to be in Spring, right? Wrong. Our weather is backwards and I think we need to re-write [the stars] the seasons. Winter, winter, spring, autumn. The official…

All through last year I did month-by-month reflections, which I would use as a means of keeping track of what I did that month and that is basically it. I didn’t particularly enjoy writing them, I didn’t feel like they were of a high standard, but I had to keep…
