When Alexandra Burke took part in Strictly Come Dancing last year she got a lot of grief on social media. She was slammed for being ‘too confident’, for wanting to win ‘too much’. Many people didn’t warm to her, thinking she had FAR too much self-belief. She spoke out a few days ago saying that the British public in general seems to have an issue…

I know, I know, I’m going on holiday during Easter time — are you fed up of me going on about it yet?! But seriously. Only 3 weeks to go!

Another post about my 2018 goals, ha ha! Sorry for all the goals spam lately but I have another good (and necessary) one to add to my wish-list for 2018. It’s regarding investing in better beauty products for my daily skincare routine because I’m at a point where I genuinely feel as though I need to focus on this far more.

So how is everyone getting on with their Christmas shopping? Are you feeling rather smug at having finished wrapping all of your presents, or are you in full-on panic mode about how much you have to do? My current state is that I’m actually pretty organised – although there are still some last gifts I need to get (there always is though, isn’t there?). Plus…
