How To Land Your Very First Brand Collab

Saturday, 17 April 2021

Happy Saturday, friends!

One of the questions I get asked the most as a blogger is how I managed to land my first brand collab. Now, while there aren't any quick fixes will instantly land you a bunch of opportunities to collaborate with all your favourite brands, there are a number of things that you can do to boost your chances... and after landing a brand collab in the same month that I made my return from a near-2-year blogging hiatus, I'd like to think that I have a good idea of what works - and what doesn't.

Today's post is primarily for new bloggers, however that being said, I'm sure it will also be of value for new & upcoming micro-influencers.

3 Lessons From Psalm 34

Saturday, 20 March 2021

 Happy Saturday, friends!

I hope you're having a really blessed week.

At the very beginning of lockdown #1 last year, I resolved to really study my bible again. It's taken me a while to admit it, but I'm a really studious person; I love looking into things in-depth and discovering all the missing links. Especially when it comes to the bible; and there are so many connections! Psalm 34 was the first psalm I studied in any depth, and in many ways, I feel as though it carried me through some of the most difficult periods of my life. I learned so much from it last year, so I would like to share what I learned with you.

Before we go any further, I would suggest that you spend some time in prayer and open up that bible yourself. (If you don't have a bible, click here)

10 To-Do's for March

Saturday, 27 February 2021

 Happy Saturday, friends!
I hope you are feeling inspired and motivated to do great things this week.

Last month, I was massively inspired by Rebecca's (From Roses) approach to goal-setting in this post. Rebecca basically decided to stop setting herself giant goals that spanned over the entire year, so that she could focus on the smaller (more achievable) things she would like to do on a monthly basis. There is just SO much I love about taking this approach- it completely takes the pressure off. 

While I've already committed myself to 7 long-term goals for 2021 (which I can share in another post if you want...), I still think it's good practice to chunk your goals into smaller pieces to make them more manageable. So, without further ado...

Loungewear to Love | Ad Gifted

 Happy Saturday, friends!

I have a confession to make... 

Before lockdown 1.0, I secretly hated loungewear

Because before 2020, I was the kind of girl who was at her happiest when she had a reason to get dressed up in a pretty dress and a pair of painful heels. It never really occurred to me that it was possible to look good AND be comfortable at the same time. Things have definitely changed since then, and I'd be lying if I didn't admit that Femme Luxe Finery had a pretty big part to play in changing my mind. Today I'm going to share two of my all-time favourite loungewear sets from Femme Luxe. While the products in this post were gifted to me, please remember that all the opinions & thoughts on my blog are my own, unless clearly stated otherwise.

More To Life

Saturday, 6 February 2021

Happy Saturday friends!

Today's post was completely unplanned and unintended. Like seriously, I already had all my posts all scheduled up, in a nice neat 3-month schedule... but if there's anything I learned in 2020 it's that life rarely follows our neat little plans. So no, I didn't plan to write a post for today- but you're getting one anyway. So pour yourself a cup of tea, get comfortable, and click that 'read more' button because trust me you're not going to want to miss out on this post.

5 Happy Things | Jan 2021

Saturday, 16 January 2021

 Happy Saturday, friends!

I hope you all have something to be happy about this week.

The other day I went out for a walk with a friend, who mentioned how she just couldn't believe that we were already halfway through the first month of the new year. We laughed it off, saying that it felt more like December the 37th 2020, and got on with our day... but that moment stayed stuck in my mind for the rest of the day. Despite all our best hopes, 2021 has started on a bit of a bummer- and it's okay to admit that. However, that isn't to say that there hasn't been a bundle of precious moments and happy things that have happened. 

So, without further ado, here are 5 happy things that have happened this month!

 Hey there, friend.
I hope you had a special and memorable holiday in spite of all that was different.

I would like to start this post by wishing you a Happy New Year, and congratulating you on making it right here. I want to acknowledge the loss that you experienced in 2020. As my sweet friend Nadine said in her post on Friday, no matter who you are, you have now experienced some form of trauma. It's about time you were given some credit- because whoever you are if you are reading this I can almost guarantee that you have survived far more than you ever thought you would have to. 

and I for one, am proud of you.
