20 Things To Do This Autumn

20 Things To Do This Autumn

As we are still in a weird time in the world with Coronavirus still being the talk of the town, I know its been hard to think out of the box of things to do this year safely. The usual things we would be doing this Autumn here in England are just not happening, such as going to bonfire nights and watching fireworks on guy Fawkes day.

But just because the time is weird this year doesn’t mean that we cant enjoy ourselves this year! If you’re anything like me, I don’t celebrate Halloween so you won’t see any Halloween activities in my list. Instead you’ll find Autumnal activities that involve family and loved ones.

Today I Am Thankful For…

Today I Am Thankful For…

Something thats really important to me, and something I like to remind people of is the good things they have in life. I especially like to do this when I’m having a rough time, it really helps to put things into perspective. Being thankful in the mist of a bad time or a bad period of mental health is something I really cling to, to help me feel better.

So today I thought I would spread some positivity in the internet world and came up with the idea of this post. I want this post to be a hub of positivity. Where we all come together to share the things we are grateful for in life, and so we can encourage and remind each other of the good things we have.

I’ll list 10 things I’m thankful for this week and I then want you to go to the comment section and list as many things as you like, that you are thankful for too.

How I Balance Blogging Around a Full Schedule

How I Balance Blogging Around a Full Schedule

It can be so hard balancing the things that come with life, some things we choose to do and some things we have to do. When I restarted my blog this year I didn’t realise that it would be like a full time job and I already have a full time job. I know some fellow blogging friends of mine have families and kids they have to look after too, so I cant even image running a blog and having to juggle all of that.

I often get asked how I post so much and how I manage to balance everything to stay afloat. So this is why this post is here! I want to share what I personally do to keep onto of my blog whilst having a full time job and other commitments. It’s not easy, but I hope these tips can help to take some weight off of your shoulders.

30 Blogmas Post Ideas For Bloggers

30 Blogmas Post Ideas For Bloggers

Even though my blog has been around for 5 years, this will be the first Christmas where I will be an active blogger! How exciting. And with that, I had heard the word ‘blogmas’ being thrown around occasionally and did some research into it. If you’re familiar with YouTube and vlogmas, its the same concept. You post a blog post everyday in the lead up to Christmas.

I haven’t decided if I wanted to take part or not, but I thought it would be helpful to post some post ideas if you decide to take part! I’m posting this obviously really early before Christmas, because if you do want to take part I’d start writing the posts now!

So lets get into it!

How The Ordinary Skincare Transformed My Skin

How The Ordinary Skincare Transformed My Skin

We all struggle from time to time with getting zits, spots or blemishes and I want to assure you getting them is 100% normal. Theres so much pressure on us in todays society to have perfect hair, skin, teeth nails etc. But in reality thats just not possible. Many people no matter what age or gender suffer from bad skin.

As a teen my skin was okay, it was when I started using makeup and wearing foundation that I started to get blemishes. And then of course after puberty it was hormone that caused a-lot of my spots. Last year I discovered The Ordinary skincare, I remember a friend at work told me about the wonders it did for her skin. I remember hearing that and thinking “I wonder if it will work for me?”. Its really inexpensive compared to other skincare brands so decided to give it a try. Today I’ll be sharing the results that I’ve had so far from using the products!

Blogging Q&A: You Ask, I Answer

Blogging Q&A: You Ask, I Answer

I would never consider myself established or a subject matter expert on blogging, but I do get DM’s and questions about blogging, especially from newbies. As many of you already know my blogging story, I wont bore you with a repeat. But I would have found it so helpful if a fellow blogger at the time had an open discussion with their readers and answered as many blogging questions as they could. So I thought I’d give it a try today.

As I have already said, I’m by no means an expert at this. But I really want to help new and or established bloggers, with any helpful advice I can give.

Blogging Advice I’ve Learnt Whilst Blogging

Blogging Advice I’ve Learnt Whilst Blogging

Before I started a blog I didn’t really look or research what goes into it. I just saw others doing it and thought “I want to do this too!”. Of course if you are considering starting a blog or have just started one, I’d recommend doing the opposite of what I did. Its always good to research anything before you do it, especially when it involves the internet.

Blogging advice can vary, what I think works for me and my blog might not be the same case for you or another blogger. We don’t all have the same audiences, we don’t all have the same opinions and preferences in style and colours. Everybody has different thoughts and processes they follow.

Today I wanted to share the blogging advice I have learnt whilst blogging, in hopes it helps you on your blogging journey too!
