: new Years Resolutions and Newness

Welcome Back Everyone! I hope you all had wonderful Christmases and New Years! I know I’ve taken a bit of the break since Blogmas but I just haven’t really had the time with all the other work and such I’ve been doing.

To start of this post I’ll just keep you up to date with what I’ve been doing since we last spoke:

  •  My Christmas was pretty good but I feel like it all went way too quickly. Plus working over Christmas kinda bought down my festivities a bit but oh well. I got loads of lovely presents which may not have been particular luxurious of expensive but were just perfect fir me really as I didn’t really ask for anything so just received a few bits an bobs including some adorably little desk lights. I may do another (very belated, I know) blog post on some favourite Xmas prezzies i received if you would like that.
  • My contract ended with my job and (because they’re pretty stupid and overstaffed at Christmas) they didn’t keep anyone on But oh well, plenty more jobs I can try.
  • I had an amazing NYE party which even included a cheeky sleepover that night. In the morning our hung over selves watch The Princess and The Frog because we woke up at about 6/7 am. Yeah very little sleep was experienced that night.
  • I made and uploaded to YouTube a “My 2016” video showing all the highlights in chronological order.
  • I have done a lot of January Sales shopping and this past Saturday I bought 2 dresses from New Look (one of which was £1!)
  • I have had to do a lot more revision for my exams and am currently taking a few mock exams.

Next off I’ll tell you my new Years resolutions for this year (as some of you may know I did pretty well in my resolutions last year so lets see how this one goes):

  • This year I only have one resolution. To do more! I know that I did in fact get up to quite a lot last year but I felt like I spent most of my time sitting around doing nothing. I want to change this so I’ve decided to try and say YES more. This resolution has already come into play as I have agreed to go out to places more and I have already found that when you go out on a Friday (after work or school or whatever it is you do) it makes your weekend last a whole lot longer! Like I’ve found that if I do something on a Friday night the next day I assume its Sunday when I have a whole other day more to go before its back to work on Monday. Since the beginning of the year I have also decided to re start a diary/journal type thing. I am writing in it every few days and although I have never been able to stick to one before I hope I can change it around this year!

Now for the Newness:

I was quite proud of myself for my Blogmas (even though I did mess up a few times) and I do really love Blogging and Vloging and so I have made the courageous decision to upload more. So may I introduce to you… NATSCHATS TUESDAYS! From this day forward I will upload a Blog post every week on a Tuesday (at roughly 5pm GMT – 9 am PST). I know this doesn’t seem like an amazing breakthrough or anything but at least this way I’ll be a bit more organised and have something to aim for. I hope that you will all join me on my weekly entries as I really do appreciate every single person that reads this. Though we may be few, we are mighty. Or we mighty few…im sure that some kind of famous quote. I will warn you now, I am a very reliable person in real life but I have a horrific memory (believe me I take psychology) but that is no excuse as what we have here on NatsChatsTV is a family and of course FAMILY COMES FIRST so I am giving you full permission to nag me and shout abuse at me if I neglect you and/or forget a blog post. Literally if anyone Tweets me or comments on my Instagram or even slides into my DMs and mentions my blog post for this week I will get straight back on it I promise!

Speaking of which if you want to follow or add (or whatever you kids do these days) my social media links are right here (#selfpromo)

Blogmas day 9: My Christmas (animal) jumpers

imageimageimageimageHello everybody, today I thought I’d share with you all the Christmas jumpers I have this year. I’m afraid none of them were bought this year but I’ll still tell you where they were from so you can try and find them if you wish. Feel free to show me your ones and tell me which of mine are ypur favourite

1)
Robin Jumper from George at Asda
I think this is literally one of the cutest ones I have, and it so so soft! Literally putting this on is like slipping into a fluffy blanket (worst simile ever)

2)
Christmas Penguin from Papaya in Matalan. This is probably my most Christmassy jumper (I know I need some new ones). This is also super fluffy but with the random sequins which add an added crunch!

3)
Pura Moda Dalmation jumper. This is probably my least Christmassy jumper but I feel like it’s perfect for a more formal situation (possibly a Christmas meal?) and the colour goes with pretty much anything

4)
So I lied this is even less Christmassy, but it’s still super cute! For the nerd in all of us (and my favourite coloured one) this is my last Christmassy animal jumper!

I hope you enjoyed today’s post! Happy Blogmas!!!
Xx

How To Survive: Black Friday

Now, I may live in the UK, so our Black Friday’s are not as extreme as some places (ahem America) but us Brits do like to shop, we just do it in a much safer manner…normally. But on Black Friday it seems that our stereotypical calm and collected behaviour goes out the window. So with that in mind, this is your guide on how to make it through…

If you’ve been living under a rock you may not have noticed that the Black Friday Deals have already started, which is odd as Friday is tomorrow, but I guess the shops think that this way they can spread out the chaos instead of packing it all in one day (messy).

But to start off my Help Guide, I should really explain what this mystical day entails…

According to Wikipedia “Black Friday is the day following Thanksgiving Day in the United States (the fourth Thursday of November). Since 1932, it has been regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season in the U.S., and most major retailers open very early (and more recently during overnight hours) and offer promotional sales”

So yeah… now ya know,

This is for those of you that dont want anything to do with Black Friday:

STAY AWAY!!! My only advice for you people is to steer clear of any shopping that day (come on its just one day) and I wouldnt make any plans to go out cause you just know the roads will be jammed with holiday shoppers. So just use it as an excuse to stay in Friday night (we all knew you were anyway).

For those who want to shop still but dont want any human contact what so ever (#same)

Here are my top websites to shop on Friday:
  • Superdrug – daily deals until Tuesday (upto 60% off) as well as loads of other deals/bundles and free stuff!!!
  • ASOS – 20% off EVERYTHING with the code: GOGOGO and free worldwide delivery!
  • Debenhams – No VAT on anything and upto 50% on clothing plus loads of other dealerino’s!
  • Amazon – SO.MANY.DEALS!
  • John Lewis – arent even revealing their deals till tomorrow (so you know they’re gonna be sweeeeet)
  • Forever 21 – They’ve been very hush hush about this but it turns out that on top of their already amazing sales, they’ve added another 30% off!!!
  • H&M – 50% off!
  • New Look – Up to 50% off (but just go online anyway just to see their amazing website banner XD)
  • Top Shop – Up to 50 % off … Im sensing a trend here…but they have free shipping too so…
And Im guessing all your other favourites will have, oh i dunno… up to 50% off?

For those braving the storm:

Good Luck!
JK…
There are gonna be some amazing deals on the highstreet and in shopping centres so you’re sure to save a lot of money but my tips for you are:
  • Make sure you actually want to buy the item, (your not just buying yourself a TV cause it 80% off when you already have a bigger and better one at home)
  • Dont get Stressy, if you know you hate shopping, large crowds or disorder then dont chance it and if you can feel yourself getting uncomfortable, LEAVE! There will be thousands of sales throughout the years so you’re not gonna miss out oo much
  • Remember to eat and drink (seriously of you faint infront of a 90% off electronics deal there is a good chance you will be trampled)
I hope this helped and whatever you’re planning to do tomorrow I hope you have a great time. Stay safe everyone and good luck!
XX
P.s. Remember to tell me all your SWEET DEALS!
P.p.s. Sorry if your working tomorrow – sending even more luck!
Oh and HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Vlogmas?

If any of you read my blogger: (mynattynatworld.blogspot.co.uk) then you’ll know that recently I’ve been watching a lot of zoellas old vlogmasses which has put me in a really Christmassy mood, it’s terrible I know as its only just September but I’m afraid I can’t help it. It doesn’t help the fact that I absolutely love Autumn and am so happy now it’s come (I am literally sitting on my couch with a blanket around me even though it’s sunny outside – that’s how mad I am)!

Anyway this got me thinking that I would love to attempt my own vlogmasses this year. There are some definite problem though which are stopping me;

– the point? Many people would ask what the point of me doing vlogmasses if no one watches them (bearing in mine that at the moment I get roughly 30 views per video)  but then again, at the moment at least, I’m using my blog and YouTube channel as a sort of diary to look back on in the future

– content? I am currently in college so the first half of my vlogmasses would be very boring and dull for me and the viewers, also I don’t have a lot of money so wouldn’t be able to go out as often as I wish I could which is a real bummer

Basically I could really use some help so if you reading this is feeling especially generous today then would you mind possibly either going to my YouTube channel and taking a look or commenting on this post your thoughts?

Much love xx
