Life Lately

 
It's been a while since I had a little ramble so I thought I'd fill you all in on what's been going on with me and my little family lately...
 
So first off, you may have seen over on my social media that back in May I submitted my LAST assignment for my Childhood Degree! It's been a tough few years but I'm so glad that I finished and finally did it! I was working towards a degree in Childhood and Youth Studies which kinda slots in with my full time job in a college, but it was hard. I was stressed, doing it part time alongside a full time job AND having a baby/toddler on top of all of that was really, really tough but I stuck it out and managed to get it done. I just need to wait until July 15th now to receive my results and find out whether I'll be finishing with a 2:1 or 2:2 degree!
 
Alongside that, my 'little makeup business' is doing amazingly and is growing every month! I joined Younique back in March and I love it! The makeup, the company, the people - It's such a welcoming opportunity and a chance for me to work hard in something I'm passionate about but have fun at the same time. It's also a way of me saving some money without actually feeling like I'm going without anything during the month! Let me know if you'd like to know more about becoming a Younique rep too!
 
I have 2 weeks left at work until I finish for summer so as you can imagine, it's all hands on deck at the moment to get everything done but once that's over with, we're heading to Gran Canaria! We went a few years back and decided that we wanted to go back as a family so we are! We're staying the Gloria Palace Royal which overlooks the beautiful Amadores Beach in Puerto Rico - Bring on that sunshine!! However, I'm not sure how peaceful it's going to be with a very active 3 year old...
 
Talking of which, Millie is a proper little girl now. She loves playing outside with the cats and in her Wendy House, she has her own little bedroom that she constantly messes up, she is 100mph from the moment she wakes up to the moment she goes to bed, but she makes us laugh so much and I love her to bits. She's at the age now though that she could really do with a brother or sister to play with and keep her entertained... Especially when Mummy can't fit in the Wendy house to play picnics!!
 
And lastly, we're finally on track to get a deposit together for our first home. We've struggled over the last year or two due to work and moving etc but hopefully, by the time Christmas 2017 comes, we should have a good enough deposit to pay for our very first home together! So from now on, it's save, save, save!! Expect lots of budgeting posts and ways to save money... I know we all like to save money wherever we can so send me your top tips or posts if you have done something similar!
