Three Kick-Ass Bloggers to Follow NOW

Sunday, 18 March 2018

I really shouldn't be writing this.

What I should be doing, is sitting in the library and getting my head down to get a start on the stack of assignments that I have piling up... yet, here I am.

I've always held tight to the belief that bloggers need other bloggers- in my last blogger recommendation post, I was reminded that We rise by lifting others.

It's so important to appreciate the work that other gals are doing in our field so that we can cheer each other on to achieve great things... and that's exactly what I intend to do in this post.

Reykjavik & Beyond: Adventure to Iceland

Sunday, 18 February 2018

My most important New Years Resolution this year was to take every opportunity that came my way; to live a life with no regrets, so that in the future I can look back at these years and say yes, I did do everything that I wanted to do.

So when I returned to university in January and a couple of my friends suggested a short break to travel to Iceland, I was completely on board. Within just under three weeks, me and 5 other girls from my course arranged flights, accommodation, and tours around the beautiful country of Iceland.

50 Blog Post Ideas For Every Kind of Blogger

Sunday, 4 February 2018

There's a big pile of washing waiting to be done, but I want to get this post written up before I do the housework. Today has been a surprisingly productive day and I'm super proud of myself for that, especially since I haven't been feeling super motivated lately... lol.

Ironically, I actually really struggled deciding what I wanted to write this post about, so I started brainstorming a couple of different blog post ideas. One idea became 10, and before I knew it I had 50 pretty generic blog post ideas sprawled out on an A4 page in front of me.

15 Things That Make Me A Stereotypical 'White Girl'

Monday, 22 January 2018

I don't know about you, but I actually really love those 'common white girl' accounts on Twitter, and I often have a good wee laugh about how much I relate to the things they tweet about. Half of the time, I'm like OH MY GOODNESS SOMEONE ELSE DOES THAT TOO?! and then the other half I'm like, wait... doesn't everyone do that?

One of my close friends, Ethan, has teased me for being a 'typical white girl' for years, so I thought it would be a good laugh to compile a little list of some of the things that make me a stereotypical 'white girl' 

4 Lifechanging Books to Read in 2018

Sunday, 14 January 2018

Hiya loves! It's 1pm right now, and I'm still in my pajamas and in bed. Last week was my last 'week off' before the uni madness begins again, so I decided to take a couple of days off work to catch up with the blog, and too just chill for once. 

Sources of Inspiration for 2018

Sunday, 7 January 2018

Hello you lovely bunch!

It's been a while since I last posted on here; two months and 14 days to be exact. Despite my very best intentions of keeping up with posting twice a week over the winter period, it just wasn't manageable. In the midst of things in the early weeks of December I was juggling my biggest deadlines of last semester in uni, as well as working full time hours in a very hectic restaurant in the city centre. Those of you who work/have worked in hospitality over the festive season will know my struggle. 

But I'm back now, and I'm so ready to delve right back into the wonderful world of blogging.

I've got a lot to catch up on.

Learning How to Live On My Own

Wednesday, 22 November 2017

I've always considered myself to be pretty extremely extroverted.
When surrounded by people, I become this bright, bubbly, energised version of myself. Since I can remember, even the most basic form of human interaction has both energized and encouraged me. I love spending time with people.
But lately (having moved into my new flat and all) I've been spending more time on my own than ever before...

The Blogging Statistics I Care About

Wednesday, 15 November 2017

 All bloggers care about statistics, fact

The ones who tell you they don't are probably trying to sell you something.

Not to point the finger at anyone, but I have seen so many bloggers recently 'claim' that they don't care about statistics... and I call bullshit. 

Obviously some people care about statistics more than others, but we all get that slight feeling of pride when our daily views surge, or our twitter followings double. I honestly don't see there being any problem with that.

So, here are the blogging statistics that I care about.

November Goals and Bloggers to Watch Out For

Wednesday, 8 November 2017

I've had a bit of a crazy-hectic week.

In the space of seven days, I have managed to lost my phone at least 5 times, lose my student card, spend almost all my money, and break my laptop. Yes, break... as in I'm never going to be able to use it again. Life as a student blogger just got a WHOLE LOT harder. 

And it couldn't have come at a worse time, with my assignments have started building up and slowly starting to resemble a small mountain. Looks like I'm going to be spending a heck of a lot of my time in the university library. Nice.

5 Happy Things

Sunday, 29 October 2017

First up, before I properly start this post, can I just say a huge THANK YOU to the lovely people who commented, tweeted, and messaged me privately in response to my last post (which you can read here). I talked a little bit about my recent struggle with Seasonal Affective Disorder, and I was completely taken aback by the response I got... every little message really touched my heart, and it means the world to me that you guys care

Back in the day, my '5 Happy Things' posts were a regular feature on the blog. At least once a month, I would sit down and make a list of all the things that had filled me with that lovely, warm, fuzzy feeling of joy... and then from that I hand picked the 5 that I could talk about. They were my favourite posts to write, my favourite to read back over, and some of my biggest hits on the blog. 

It's been a while since I last reflected on the things that have made me smile, and I feel like after last Wednesday's post it's even more fitting that I do just that.
