My August favourites

Hi everyone! I can’t believe we are already at the end of August and going into September!! Where is the year going?? So I wasn’t going to write this post originally because I was going to give up these posts. However, I thought I would reinvent it and share my favourite blog posts and YouTube videos from the month. I was going to write a post about my favourite bloggers and vloggers but I thought this would a more fun way to do it. Continue reading “My August favourites”

21 things for my 21st birthday

Hi everyone! So it’s my 21st birthday! I love birthdays. I love being a year older, I love having a reason to celebrate. This year I am going out for a meal with my family and then at the weekend we are doing an escape room as a joint celebration for me and my boyfriends birthday as our birthdays are a week apart which I am so excited for too! I decided that as a way to commemorate my birthday on my blog, I would make a list of 21 things about me and what I’ve learnt/experienced. Continue reading “21 things for my 21st birthday”

Why I am sick of the blogging ‘community’

Hi everyone! So recently a guy, who I love to read by the way, put out a blog post about the blogging community and how we could be more of a collective movement.

They are often used on social media to boost engagement.

Blog in review: July 2017

Hi everyone! So if you are a regular reader, you’ll know that I set myself goals at the start of each month. However, I realised that as much as I liked this, I also needed to reflect upon the previous month and how I’d done with those goals. The idea of this post is to reflect on the last month and then set myself some goals based on what I want to improve on. Continue reading “Blog in review: July 2017”
