I’m so late with this month’s intro post! Here’s a very late look at what’s coming up on the blog in January.
I usually like to publish these posts right on the first day of the month. But I’ve been so poorly with flu over Christmas that it just kept on slipping my mind. I’m finally feeling a bit more human so here, at long last, is what I’ve got planned for the blog this month.
I started a new Reading Challenge for 2017 over the Christmas break. I’ve already managed to tick 6 books off my new target of 45 books, and posted my review of Kit de Waal’s amazing My Name is Leon last week. This Friday I’ll be reviewing The Secret Lives of the Amir Sisters, which is the debut novel by GBBO winner Nadiya Hussain. Keep an eye out later this month for more reviews including The Keeper of Lost Things by Ruth Hogan and the fabulous Hold Back the Stars by Katie Khan.
Have you made New Year’s Resolutions for 2017? You may have already seen my Goals for 2017 and my Blogging Goals for the year ahead. If you’re taking part in Dry January, then I’ve got some alcohol-free drink options coming up from Fentimans. And if you’re getting back in the gym, then keep a look out for a sports nutrition review coming soon. I’ve also got a foodie giveaway later on in the month with a really mouth-watering prize. And I’ll be continuing my partnership with Panasonic to bring you some fantastic smoothies that are perfect for January.
On the beauty front, I’ve got a new mascara review in the pipeline, as well as a review of another High Street skincare brand. And there’s a beauty giveaway coming up on the blog next week that you definitely won’t want to miss!
If you’re thinking of starting a new blog in 2017, then I’m sure you’re going to enjoy my #BlogTips series. It’ll be starting up this Saturday, and each post will be packed with useful information and tips. I’ve got one more new blog post series up my sleeve that will be beGINning later on in January. Can you guess what it might be about…? And of course I’ll be kicking off each week on a positive note with Motivation Monday.
