How I Grew My Pinterest Following

I'm not usually one for 'How-To' posts but recently I've had a lot of success with my Pinterest account and I feel like, for me, it's the platform that has been easiest to grow. I'm currently at around 19,000 followers, gaining around 3-4 thousand new followers a month, which I feel like is pretty good going. I'm also starting to notice a big increase in the amount of blog traffic I'm receiving from posts I've shared in my Pinterest boards. 

So how did I make it happen?

New Look Wish List

With the amount of effort I've been putting in to preparing my shopping list for my visit to the UK, anyone would think I was gearing up for the end of the world.

I have lists... and I'm considering a spreadsheet.

Too much?

Anyway, both Scott and I plan on going on a massive shopping spree and treating ourselves to a whole bunch of new clothes. Shopping in Abu Dhabi isn't as inspiring as you might think so a cheeky, tax-free haul is most certainly on the cards. 

Today, I thought I would share with you what's currently on my wish list from New Look - spoiler alert, I seem to be having a, 'cold shoulder' moment.

The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask

My skin has been having a really bad week. Scratch that. A really bad couple of weeks. Apparently you can't just eat like an absolute animal for a month and get away without the tiniest most astronomical smattering of pimples. 

And before anyone says anything along the lines of, 'I don't see any spots!?' I've been troweling on the concealer so hard, Mr Titchmarsh would be proud. 

Just so you know.

Anyway, on a particularly explosive pimple day, I ran out and panic-purchased a bunch of face masks - one of which was the Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask from The Body Shop.

My Stay At The Banyan Tree Al Wadi, Ras Al Khaimah

Recently, Scott and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary. We made it a whole year. Hooray. As a special treat, Scott booked us a surprise trip to the Banyan Tree Al Wadi Hotel Resort and Spa out in Ras Al Khaimah. I'd always fancied staying at a resort out in the desert and with the hotel grounds spanning 100 hectares and being nestled amidst the sprawling Al Wadi Nature Reserve, it really was the perfect escape from the city.
