I don’t do these chain award tag posts anymore if I’m honest. A lot of them are for new bloggers and I’m long from being a new blogger but I was tagged in one the other day which was mostly Disney themed and it looked like fun so I wanted to join in. I’m not sure if this tag is designed for new bloggers or just anyone who fancies doing it but what I’m going to do is tag 10 bloggers with under 500 blog followers at the end of this post for you to check out and spread the love! Thank you to Charlie from That is the Spell for my nomination, do go and check out his wonderful blog!
Around this time 4 years ago, Jenny in Neverland was born. 4 flipping years ago. First of all, I can’t believe I’ve stuck at something for so long; I was notoriously known in school for picking up a hobby, being totally engrossed for a month then the novelty wore right off. Flute, piano, dancing, drama, art – you name it. But this isn’t school anymore and this isn’t just a hobby anymore and I had no idea 4 years ago that blogging would become such a huge, important and vital part of my daily life. But it has and although it’s not been completely smooth sailing and there’s been a fair few bumps in the road, I still love blogging now as much as ever. So I’m here celebrating my blog’s 4th birthday and I’d love for you to join me!
I stumbled across a blog post from Gemma at An Ocean Glimmer which I loved the idea of and immediately wanted to give it a go myself! We’ve all done the typical Q&A where we ask our followers for questions but this one includes questions from a random question generator and will include 10 completely random questions. Ready? Let’s see what questions I get…
About a billion years now ago, I was tagged by Hailey from The Undateable Girl’s Diary to take part in ‘The Alice 1951 Tag’ (ok it was only a month ago but whatevs). The tag includes Alice in Wonderland themed questions from the original Disney classic, which I absolutely adore so I knew I wanted to give this one a go, I just completely forgot about it and ya’no, life got in the way – as per usual. But, better late than never so here are my answers and I will tag anyone who loves Disney and Alice in Wonderland! But don’t forget to credit Danielle, from Underland to Wonderland who created the tag!
I love stationery, cards, stickers and just generally cute things and I always enjoy reviewing products such as these. After meeting Hannah on Twitter, I received a couple of her greetings cards in the post from her small business Sew Bloom – which specialises in cute, handmade cards for different occasions all of which have super adorable designs. Today I’m going to be talking about the cards she sent me and I also have a mini Q&A with Hannah herself at the bottom of this post to talk more about Sew Bloom and what it’s like to run a small business! And don’t miss a cheeky discount code at the bottom of the post on all your Sew Bloom Etsy orders!
This afternoon on Mental Health Awareness Week, I have a fantastic interview with one of my Twitter followers, Danielle Nichol. I reached out on Twitter for anyone who works or has experience in the mental health industry and Danielle said she was going to be starting university soon to study to be a mental health nurse. I was super intregied and wanted to find out more, so I have an amazing and super honest interview today with her today.
This month, I introduced a new sponsorship package to my blog. The ‘premium package’ which in it’s perks, includes an interview with the sponsor so you can find out more about them and what they do. I am delighted to bring you the very first of my sponsor interviews with a company I’ve had the privilege of working with before and reviewing their gorgeous stationary. Give a big, warm, squishy hello to #PaperHaul!
So like, many moons ago, I was tagged in the 11 Things You Didn’t Know tag by the lovely Ashton from Beauty, Books and Babble and because I’m useless I completely glossed over it. But, you know the saying, better late than never right? Ashton has given me 11 random questions to answer which may reveal some things you never ever knew about me… And I’ll be leaving some questions for anyone else who wants to do this tag at the bottom! Enjoy!

Blurb: Brighton, 1950.
When the body of a girl is found, cut into three, Detective Inspector Edgar Stephens is reminded of a magic trick, the Zig Zag Girl.
The inventor of the trick, Max Mephisto, is an old friend of Edgar’s. They served together in the war as part of a shadowy unit called the Magic Men.
Max is still on the circuit, touring seaside towns in the company of ventriloquists, sword-swallowers and dancing girls. Changing times mean that variety is not what it once was, yet Max is reluctant to leave this world to help Edgar investigate. But when the dead girl turns out to be known to him, Max changes his mind.
Another death, another magic trick: Edgar and Max become convinced that the answer to the murders lies in their army days. When Edgar receives a letter warning of another ‘trick’, the Wolf Trap, he knows that they are all in danger… Continue reading
