Disney x Books with The Book People *

There’s two things that you should already know about me. 1) I love Disney. I love Disney with all my heart. I’ve grown up with Disney, I have a Disney related blog name, a Disney tattoo and I never listen to regular music – just Disney songs (okay that’s a white lie but I do listen to a lot of Disney songs on a day-to-day basis). And 2) I love books. Books remain my one true love. Books brought me out of a dark place and books led me to start my blog which has brought me so much since; friends, creative freedom, self-employment and amazing opportunities to work with some wonderful brands. Like The Book People, who I’m lucky enough to work with today.

Q&A; Blogging, dreams, books & travel!

Good morning folks. It’s been a hot minute since I did a Q&A around here where the questions came from actual people on Twitter (as opposed to my Random Question Generator Q&A) and my blog followers have grown quite considerably since then. So if you’re new around here, first of all, hi! I’m so glad you could join us and second of all, here’s a little bit more about me and I’ll try and make my answers as interesting as possible but I can’t promise anything.

My blogging journey (and where I hope to go from here)

Despite no other area of my life being particularly straight forward or successful, I’d say my blogging journey is something I can be proud of. Which is a huge thing for me to say because in general, nothing I ever do is good enough and I spend my entire life comparing myself to other people. But we’ll save that for another post. I can’t take credit for this post idea, someone else suggested it to me months ago and I’ve only just got around to writing it but I can’t remember for the life of me who it was (if it was you, please shout!) I’ve felt a little intimidated with the prospect of writing about my blogging journey. I’m sure I’ll miss something out but I’ll do my best.

My top things I treat myself to when I feel like sh*t

If I’ve learnt anything this year so far, it’s that we could all do with giving ourselves a bloody break once in a while. It’s okay not to be “on it” every minute of the day, it’s okay not to be productive every single day of your life and it’s certainly okay to feel like crap – for a multitude of reasons or for no reason at all – every now and again. One of the main changes I’ve made to my life this year is listening to my body and mind and giving myself what I need or want at any given time rather than ignoring it and powering through when I really shouldn’t be.

When one door closes…

It is with a heavy heart that I’m here to announce the closure of my little blog tour business Neverland Blog Tours. If you’re active in the book blogging community, you’ll be familiar with blog tours and their place in book promotion. If you’re not and don’t really care then that’s fine too. But regardless of where you stand, my business, which I set up in 2014 is closing it’s doors. I won’t say for good because nobody knows what the future holds but for now, at least.

My journey into reading & why I think all children should read!

There’s one thing that you probably already know about me and that’s that I love books. If you learn absolutely nothing else about me during your time on my blog that’s absolutely fine and dandy but do know that books and reading will always be my one true love. Today I’m partnering up with Rossall School for this post and sharing my story on how I got into reading and some reasons why I think it’s super important for children to read. Books are complete magic and the words within the pages are so powerful. Books are the reason I started this blog, which got me out of a really dark, dank place in my life. They’re not only my true love, they’re my savior too.

Lazy Summer day essentials ft. Beats Headphones

Despite being the type of person that’s always working on something, sometimes in the dead of Summer it gets far too hot to be able to lift a finger. I tried to take blog photos in the UK’s 31 degree heat the other day and I nearly died. 10/10 would not recommend. And if you’re in the UK right now you’ll be very much aware that we’re in the middle of one of the longest, hottest periods some of us have probably ever seen! Whether you love it or hate it, we all need those super lazy Summer Days where the only thing we achieve is the ultimate Summer selfie: sunglasses, cute messy bun, headphones (such as a pair of the super glamorous rose gold Beats Headphones) and a glass of Prosecco. Cos damn… it’s too hot to do anything else.
