Sophie's Spot Monthly Newsletter

So recently I've been trying to expand this blog on many different frontiers. And since the world of social media doesn't seem to be a stable one with Instagram algorithms and crashes every other month [exageration but you get the point], it seemed like a safe bet would be on creating an email list.

April Skin Magic Snow Cushion Review

It's been a while since I've sat down and written out a review on here, and even longer since it was a make-up review. But since trying out a new foundation since my usual favourite was out of stock everywhere, I thought it would be a good idea to add another cushion foundation to the reviews I have written before.

Mid-Week Ramble | An Introduction

So I've had this idea written down for nearly over a year now, and I guess I've just been putting it off for the most part due to a fear of upsetting someone. But a while back I had a conversation with the lovely Fran from Francisca Rockey and she brought it to the forefront of my mind that I can't live life fearing of disagreeing with someone over my own opinions.

So that brings us to this train of thought.

Mid-Year Resolutions Check-in

It's crazy to think now we are pretty much halfway through 2019 and half a year away from 2020!

With that in mind, I thought it would be a good idea to look back on the goals I made back at the beginning of January and to see how many I've completed or how far I am away from reaching the end of those goals. The latter is probably more likely to be the case. But it's okay we still have another 182 days to go to tick them all off.

How To Live More Sustainably

It's almost a trend these days to talk and be sustainable in everything we do. And though I not sure how I feel about these sort of things, including vegetarianism and veganism being 'trendy', I can't complain that by being a trend they are bringing more light to some important topics.

So I thought for today's post it might be of some help to gather a bunch of ways that we can be more sustainable.

UK Travel Bucket List

A couple years ago I wrote two blog posts containing my list of places I wish to go - you can find them here and here -  but honestly I haven't really visited many of those places yet; mainly due to the lack of time and money to enjoy my time whenever/ if ever I went to the places I had written down.

However, it is still a goal of mine to see more of the world than just the town I grew up in and the one I went to university in. Therefore, I thought what better place to start than those places right on my doorstep.

Books To Read This Summer

three books are stacked on top of each other. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, How hard can love be by Holly Bourne and The Keeper of lost things by Ruth Hogen. On top of this stack is a tiny figurine of a sitting owl. The back ground is a solid grey colour as everything sits on a grey and white checked duvet.

Now that second year has officially finished and we're into the summer break, it seems like the perfect time to dust off those books that have been sitting waiting patiently on the bookshelf to be read. Or as for me take to Amazon to buy some books that have been sat on my to-read list for a while now.

I'm not going to include any spoilers in this kind of post for anyone who is worried, the most I might share is information which is also included in the blurb of each book.
