Autumn staples for your wardrobe & home *

I might not be the most fashionable person but like most people, I am a person that loves Autumn. The weather, the colours, the changing of the seasons and the new energies that a new season brings – ugh, I love it all! Although Winter will always have my heart as my favourite season, Autumn […]

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 […]

Meet my October advertisers! *

Last month, I introduced monthly advertisers back on my blog after a long few years away from it. I’ve been so thrilled with the interest in these new packages and have thoroughly enjoyed having some lovely bloggers back in my sidebar and also the return of my monthly “meet the advertisers” posts. So due to […]

A conversation that irked me

This is going to be one of my fairly word-vomitty, un-planned, see where it takes me type posts so if you’re not a fan of those, I won’t be offended (I wouldn’t be a fan either, don’t worry). But I had a conversation a few months ago that really irked me and I wanted to […]

Meaningful conversation

It’s likely that this post is going to be a bit of a nonsensical ramble. But that’s okay. I’m going with the flow and seeing where the wind takes me with this one. A couple of months ago now, I tweeted a tweet. Yes, you might say, that’s generally what you do on Twitter. Well […]

De-cluttering made easy

I’m a very tidy, organised, Type A sort of person and I hate with all my being having too much “stuff” and too many possessions. I hate mess, I hate having drawers heaving with crap and I hate keeping stuff I don’t really need. I know I sound like a bit of a clutter Nazi […]

Things to do before you hit “publish”

Since my little discussion about why I like blogging for bloggers, I’ve been inspired to write more blogging-related blog posts lately. I think there will always be a blogging related topic that someone needs or wants to find out more about and blogging is such a multi-layered hobby or career that even the smallest and […]

Does it even matter

I rarely write posts which are unplanned, unstructured and spur of the moment. My Type A, obsessive, stressy, organised personality just doesn’t do that. So only a handful of times in my blogging life have I just whacked WordPress open and started typing of my own accord because I had something on my mind which […]

Should I go Vegan?

Before I start with this post I just want to pop a PSA out there into the world right away and say that I’m not (currently) Vegan. I’m going to go into a bit more detail about my relationship with food but I’m keen to share this brand with you because since being on Twitter, […]

Things bloggers should never feel guilty about

If you’re a new blogger, you’re likely coming into this industry (ugh, I hate that word) to an array of “how to be a fantastic blogger” posts all telling you to do X, Y and Z in order to succeed in this pool of bloggers all trying to do the same thing. I write what […]

MY FIRST TIME!

I’ve officially fallen down the “clickbait” hole. But ya no, in a world where 4 billion bloggers are all trying to achieve the same thing and all want dem viewz, you’ve gotta do what you can to stand out, haven’t you? Anyway, I pinched this tag from Hello Bexa (you can find her post here) […]

Small ways to expand your horizons

Almost every day, we’re faced with photos, tweets, Facebook ‘check-in’s’ of people jetting off across the other side of the world to go travelling. People who have spent the day in a waterfall, exploring another culture, sky-diving, snorkeling – you name it and you’ve probably seen someone you know on social media doing it. Whether […]

Random questions generator (#2)

A couple of years ago, I did a post called the “random questions generator Q&A” which was, well, what it says on the tin really. I found a random questions generator online, generated 10 random questions (blimey, imagine that!) and answered them in a Q&A! So I thought this would be a fun post to […]

Why am I in such a rush?

You would have heard me talk about it time and time again, how I’m addicted to productivity. I have this incessant need to be doing something productive 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I work for myself and I work from home, so I know that has certainly impacted this shift in me […]

Wherever you fall on that spectrum, blogging is a valued and respected industry (by most) and it has incredible perks and benefits; mentally, creatively and sometimes financially. It’s no wonder that there’s more bloggers now than ever before! Personally, I think that’s a great thing and […]
