Updates | Life, Blog & New Things

For reasons that I'm sure you'll gather from my Twitter feed, I decided to take this week off of blogging. But I still have plenty of things I want to talk about and share, so I thought I'd just sit at my laptop and type up an Updates post to fill you guys in on some things that have been happening recently.
Blog. I've been following a schedule for the past month or so, just trying it out, but I'm debating going back to posting every other day instead. The current schedule is Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Sunday but I feel like the Sunday post isn't getting enough attention/promotion compared to the other three, meaning I don't always want to 'waste' a good post on that day. Also, I've been planning a design refresh for a while now, but still haven't really committed to anything. I don't really want to pay for it, but I also don't have a bloody clue what I'm doing. I know it's something that needs to be done, because I feel like my content and photography are outshining my layout, so hopefully this month I'll get something sorted. Let me know what you guys think about these changes!

Life. On Sunday (1st March), my boyfriend and I took a trip into town. We actually walked, which is maybe a 45 minute trip from my house, and rewarded ourselves with brunch in The Galleries. He had a big breakfast, and I had the most random combination of warm pancakes with whipped cream and chips on the side. The chips were okay, but the pancakes were amazinggggg. They were literally smothered in whipped cream and chocolate sauce, plus it came with two scoops of vanilla ice cream and a flake. YUM. Life has gone pretty downhill since then, but I'm still managing to find something to be happy for each day, which I think is so important. I'm also enjoying having All Time Low & You Me At Six dance parties by myself, which is making me feel a lot better.
New Things. I bought my mum this handsome fella as an early Mothers Day present from a store called Evolution. I'm not sure if it's just a Bristol shop or if there are loads, but this one is shutting down and I managed to buy him for such a great price. I also took a trip to Lush and Primark that day, and bought myself two bath bombs, a new shampoo bar and some bedding. If you follow me on Instagram (@whatlaurendidtoday), you'll have seen my little haul already!
Hopefully I will be back in full force next week! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend xx
