Oh my gosh guys, I didn’t get this post up last week and I almost forgot to get it up today! Blog series are really not my forte. Anyhow since we skipped a week last week consider this a little amalgamation of the last two weeks. There’s also a new weekly vlog to watch at the end of the post and I would absolutely love if you could subscribe to my YouTube channel.
As a reminder my Happy Monday series is a look back on the things that made me happy in the week gone by. These are the things that excite me and for which I am thankful for.
The things that made me happy last week
In a follow on from recently joining the gym I went to my first spinning class! This was a big achievement because the class was 45 minutes long and 5 minutes in I was ready to give up. I pushed through however, albeit on a low gear and managed to see the class right through to the end! I haven’t managed to get back to the gym since but that has truly been down to being too busy rather than lack of motivation. I am hoping to free up some time over the next week or two and get back to a few classes.
I learned how to use the manual settings on my DSLR camera. After setting photography improvement as one of my 2017 goals I randomly decided one night last week to do a bit of research and figured out how to use the manual settings to get that pretty blurry background every beauty blogger dreams of.
I found out that I am nominated in the Shorty Awards! Like what?! Yes, BecBoop is nominated in the 2017 Shorty Awards in the category of Periscoper of the Year. I would love if you give me your daily vote until February 16th HERE.

I had a really fun time at the Go Glam Gala with one of my blogger friend Debonita from Elegantly Fashionable. You can see more from this event in my vlog below. I loved getting a chance to dress up midweek and walk a red carpet.
I did my first 360 broadcast on Periscope! This was so much fun and something I had been looking forward to trying since it was first introduced to the platform. I loved bringing my community around London in a total different experience to usual and I have received such positive feedback from everyone on my first 360 broadcast. Thank you! I have a full blog post planned this week to talk more about how I plan to introduce 360 live-streaming into my social media strategy so I would love to know if you have any questions, just let me know in the comments below.

I went home to Ireland for a weekend! It was my shortest trip home to Ireland ever. I flew home Saturday morning and flew back to London on Sunday night. It was so nice to see my family at home and spend time with them and of course my dog Kingsley. You can see more from my visit home to Galway in my latest vlog too.
