Its a new month which means a new Degusta Box! I was so excited when the delivery driver dropped off my box for this month. I was even more excited when I opened it and found the goodies that were inside. This is the second Degusta box that I have had, with December being the first. I really enjoy the surprise each month not knowing what will be in there! Its like a gift from me to me each month!Read more
I know writing to your younger self is such a cliche and overdone thing, but I have really wanted to do this for a while. I had so many expectations of how life was going to go when I was younger that have not been met. And I’m not sure if its because of my own expectations that I set or the fact nobody told me adult life would be this way. I did not sign up for this.
I guess as kids we are sheltered from alot of things. Knowing about sex and relationships and all of the ugly and evil things of this world. But I wish I would have known how hard growing up would be, and that it wouldn’t be easy. Perhaps my parents let me watch too many princess movies or reality tv and thats what warped my view of life. I mean I thought I’d be married with kids at 25, and for the record I am nowhere near ready for that.Read more
Blogging saved me, in so many ways. You can probably relate to what I’m about to write as I know alot of other bloggers feel the same. It gave me a sense of purpose and provided me with a life long hobby. It has connected me with new amazing people that I never would have met. It’s given me countless opportunities to spread love and good into this dark world. I am so thankful for that.Read more
Olivia, how do I increase traffic to my website? Well Anonymous 12625, I honestly have no idea. And that is usually how my conversations with people go, because I actually really don’t know.
There are so many variables as to how you grow your website and increase traffic. Thats why I wanted to create the 30 day blogging strategy so much. It has so many tips and tricks for you to use and actually makes you put in the hard work to achieve your goals. Growing your blog is not black and white and actually takes so much work. Its not as easy as me sharing a secret and your blog then growing at a fast pace. Sometimes grow is slow and not noticeable at first, and thats just the way it goes.Read more
According to statistics, one in three marriages end in divorce due to affairs started on social media. 210 million people are estimated to suffer from internet and social media addictions, and 71% of people sleep with or next to their mobile phone [kinda weird if you think about it!]. Believe me too, these were not the craziest statistics I found when researching this topic.Read more
To Feel beautiful is hands down one of the best feelings in the world, am I right?
There is something so uplifting about feeling confident in who you are and what you are. It’s deeper than outward appearance. Feeling beautiful is more than just what we look like, it’s about who we are as people. Society deems only one type of person beautiful, and thats the people you see on the front of magazine covers and on adverts. But let’s face it, the average person doesn’t look like that. And its easy for us to feel self doubt or insecurities, but that doesn’t mean we are less beautiful than they are.Read more
Do you ever find yourself in situations saying it is what it is? I find myself saying this when I get let down or if plans don’t play out like I thought they would. I mean the whole of 2020 was a big it is what it is wasn’t it? Because of the year we had in 2020 I think we all have this mentality now to some extent. We all had plans that year to do great things and see family and make memories and instead it brought loss, death, heartbreak and isolation. And it really reminded me that we really aren’t in control of our lives. We can control our now but not so much our future.Read more
Before I came back to blogging in 2020 I had no idea I could build a brand from my blog. It wasn’t even something that I had considered. I always knew blogging to be something you could do as a hobby and a place to read recipes and other fun things like that. At the time I didn’t realise that so many people make really successful businesses from it. I know that being at the stage where you make money from blogging can take a while, but I didn’t even consider it to be an option for me.Read more
