It’s been just over a year since I wrote my first blog post and flung it out into the world. In this time it’s become dearer to me than I ever could have imagined and I love the way me and my blog have grown together. I’ve discovered a whole world I had previously only scratched the surface of and my eyes have been well and truly opened. Recently, I’ve really wanted to up my Instagram game so after seeing this on basically every Instagram feed I follow, I used some of my ASOS A-LIST points to buy Capture Your Style, which promises to help you “transform your Instagram photos, showcase your life and build the ultimate platform”.
Over the past few months I’ve been trying to pay much more attention to what I’m eating and putting in my body. Now, don’t get me wrong… I’m still all about treats but am trying to take a more ‘everything in moderation approach’ so that I can enjoy these even more.
As you may know, I love a subscription box so when I found out about Ethical Kitchen, I couldn’t pass up the chance for coffee, chocolate and snacks delivered to my door.
I’ve been a bit slow in writing the next set of these posts, but don’t worry they’re on the way! Today I want to talk a bit of a weird technique I use to help stop me faffing and make sure I get at least some of my goals achieved. I like to think I’m ambitious, which is great, but I’m also quite indecisive which means I end up with lots of different grand plans. Plans to open an online shop, plans to improve my blog, plans to start doing more crafts… I have lots of plans.
Today I’ve really been pondering how it’s the simple things that make us happy and for me this is optimised by the simple notion of breakfast in bed. There’s no greater feeling than waking up to a perfect up of tea and toast smothered in your favourite raspberry jam.
Love is in the air and wedding planning is on full go! I’m hoping to take you along with me every step of the way as there’s sure to be loads of DIY decorations and crafts to blog about. But for now, I wanted to share this book I made for Adam last year as all this lovey-dovey fun and creativity reminded me about it!
This months Papergang subscription box helps support a wonderful cause, the Bumblebee Conservation Trust. This was great as it meant the whole box was Bumblebee themed which I could definitely get on board with.
We’ve all got dreams and goals and the only way to achieve them is to work hard and put in the effort. If I’m completely honest, this blog has taken up so much more of my free time than I think I could ever have imagined beforehand but I don’t regret it. If I didn’t love it I’d have quit a long time ago and 1 year on I’m feeling pretty happy about the progression I’ve made and how I have managed to streamline my content creation (to a certain extent). I guess I just want to say how proud I am of this blog and can’t wait to see where the future takes it.
