Everything You Need To Get Your Pedi Game On

As we Aussies are now well into the warmer months (it's SUMMER people!), it's also high time for us to get our feet & toes out of socks & closed-toe shoes & into open-toed shoes like sandals, slides & thongs. If you're someone who has neglected their feet over winter or forever, you might've dreaded Spring/Summer due to the state of your tootsies....or maybe you don't really care all that much, each to their own. If you're in the former group, never fear, for I have what I consider to be an ultimate guide to getting your DIY pedi game on.

Although my post title states you need everything I'm about to list, in reality you don't. I know some of these things could be out of one's price range, so feel free to find alternatives that suit your budget and needs.

Here's what I reckon you need to get your feet & toes summer sandal ready:

The Monthly Happy List (November)

Hola mi amigas & happy Monday!

November was a touch up & down for me. I had a wobbly moment earlier in the month regarding my self-image, but eventually managed to bounce back. It was a reminder to me that whilst I'm pretty good at bigging myself up these days, I still have those beat-myself-up moments. I guess that's part & parcel of life really....or at least it is for me anyway. Aside from that, the rest of the month was pretty good.

And on that note, let's get into my last Monthly Happy List for the year (I won't be doing one next month as I'll be away over Christmas/New Year):

The Shopping Cart (October/November)

It's that time of the month not that one...the one where I round up all my purchases for your voyeuristic pleasure & tell you about each & every one of them.

As always, any sales or links mentioned in this post are correct at the time of publishing. If for any reason the sales are no longer happening or the links are broken by the time you read this post, then I can not & will not be held responsible.

I'm just gonna dive straight into it:

Well well well, look who's celebrating their 2nd bloggerversary today - little ol' me!

In some ways, this sophomore year at TNL has been a bit like the so-called "terrible two's", in that it has felt more challenging than the first. I feel that I've taken more breaks this year (both intentional & un-intentional) than last year, as I struggled with motivation, writer's block, self-doubt, the comparison trap & other things. I've always felt a sense of guilt whenever I've stayed away & I've always apologised for it; but recently I've stopped caring so damn much about it as I've realised that no-one really cares that much about this space of mine, except me. I've also contemplated more recently the idea of slow blogging & have wondered whether that's an ideal route to take since my schedule has been a little all over the place in 2017. I'm still not entirely sold on the idea, but you never know. Watch this space.

Hola mi amigas & happy Fri-yay!

I've decided to have a lazy blogger day today & do a tag post. I found this particular travel tag over at The Chronicles of Holly last month & figured it'd be a bit of fun to do.
