Rambling Mondays!

Afternoon everyone! Hope you all had a lovely weekend :) I feel like I've been on the go non-stop since Friday! I've been slaving over a hot stove cooking up some tasty treats. On Saturday my family had a small birthday meal for my dad. I made a delicious Thai green curry followed by a dessert of white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake- all made from scratch. I was rather impressed with the turn out if I do say so myself. Cooking is another passion of mine, although Jamie Oliver, I am not. I wish I was one of those amazingly fantastic cooks though.

Sunday consisted of me going out to work to do a few bits and bobs. I don't usually work weekends, however, there is the odd occasion I need to pop out for an hour or so to get things done. For those of you who don't know, I work on a Royal Marine base. I love my job (It's basically a 2 minute drive from where I live so means I can roll out of bed at half 7 in time for starting at 8!) In all seriousness though, I have a huge amount of respect for anyone who risks there own lives in order to defend our country. I work in the Naafi (which is basically just the shop) and hear the most amazing stories about being out at war and some of the things these people have gone through is incredible. I do occasionally do bar work too if there is a function on, so bits and pieces here and there.

I feel like Monday is my day for rambling the most random things?! Maybe it's because I don't tend to get time to blog over the weekend so feel like I need to talk to you all and let you all know what's been going on- I don't know. But I hope you don't mind these kind of posts. 

I'm trying to re-assess my blog and see what I'd like to do with it. I love blogging so, so much. But I feel as though my blog, being called 'The Beauty Box' limits my posts to being solely about, well, beauty. I'd like to do more posts about just life in general as well as beauty too. What d'you guys think?! Let me know! :)

Last night me and my boyfriend had a lovely, well-deserved cosy night in, snuggled up in front of the t.v for hours on end. We watched Home Alone! I love those films and it has got me feeling so Christmassy! To make things even better, Fred Clause is on next Sunday which I will definitely be tuning in to watch. I could sit and watch Christmas movies all day long. They are such happy, feel good movies which just make you smile from ear to ear. It's strange too because although I have watched Home Alone along with every other Christmas film a zillion times, and probably own most of them on DVD, I will still look forward to watching them when they are played on tv, does anyone else do this?! Strange! 

Anyway, I feel like I am rambling on a little bit so will love you and leave you all there. Please let me know if you would like more personal blog posts- I really want to give you guys exactly what you want to read! :)

Lots of love-

  1. Just because it's called The Beauty Box doesn't mean you can't post personal stuff too! It's nice to know about people as well as what beauty stuff they're into.


  2. I think it's nice to hear about the bloggers life as well as what their blog is actually about. Makes the blog more personal and individual : )
