Christmas Sale Haul

HOPE YOU HIT THE SALES HARD!

More bad editing, fast talking and hideous lighting, you guys love my posts dont you! on a serious note, I am really happy with what I bought in the sales/not in the sales! This has turned out to be one of my fave vlogs as I made myself laugh in it several times (edited a lot of it out though!)

Hope you guys take some inspiration/enjoy the video.

I’m not actually wearing this today *slaps wrists* I know I should post on time but lately that is proving almost impossible!

Yesterday was my last full day in London so we tried to make the most of it while fitting in a suitable amount of uni work too!

We hit Brick Lane which was amazing, I’ve fallen totally in love with that area. Parts of it felt so derelict and tired but then suddenly I’m hit with the quirkiest and quaintest shop ever. Bizarre! I loved the contrast there.

From there we went and touched the Gherkin, yup, touched it. I’ve always wanted to go ever since watching The Apprentice (it’s featured in the intro along with several other buildings but this one is my fave and I like to think that Lord Sugar lives in the top of it).

We then did the usual of stopping and staring at things, drank coffee and got crushed in a tube, yadda yadda yadda.

This fabulous day was all done in this outfit, which remained comfy, warm and chic!

My 5 blogging New Years Resolutions!

I’ve been blogging on wordpress for just under 6 months and in that time I have received some lovely feedback and a few perks along the way, so I thought its only right that I should set my blog a few targets to ensure another happy year blogging!

This is me thinking and writing up this post earlier on today in my new and gorgeous bowler hat that I aim to blog about before the week is out!

1)      Build authentic relationships:     I have managed to make a few online friends through blogging which is lovely, but it doesn’t harm anyone to have a few more! My aim for 2012 is to befriend some generous PR folk that may just have some goodies for me to review. (Of course that means doing more posts on beauty, gadgets and tangible goodies rather than clothes!)

2)      Keep a beady eye on analytics:    Many bloggers get obsessed with their views and comments etc but I can’t say that it eats me up too much, but I do like to know where my viewers come, where and why. So I’m going to start keeping an eye on your key searches and what brought you to me. That way I can cover more topics you guys want to read about.

3)      Tackle my fears:    My biggest blogger fear is DESIGN. I’m absolutely terribly with making it look pretty. I’ve even roped in my big bro once or twice, but this year I will learn how to create the blogs pretty look myself.

4)      Buy my own domain:    I’ve been saying this for a while, this year it will most definitely be put into action! It is easy, cheap and will help people remember my URL (everyone always forgets whether its blogspot, wordpress or tumblr) I really don’t know why I haven’t done it sooner!

5)      Be a little bit more direct:    I often blog about a brand, a person or a fellow blogger but I haven’t always had the confidence to follow it up with a tweet, email or general shout out there way to let them know that I’m loving what they’re doing, want to be a part of what they’re doing or why I’m thinking/hoping for any of this! This year will see a louder and more confident cubloveclothes.wordpress.com!  (or it shall be cubloveclothes.com ;))
Do you have any new year resolutions? blog related or not – let me know!
