The future of this blog…

You might have realised I've taken a break from blogging for a few weeks. I don't enjoy writing blog posts that are all 'Hey guys, sorry I've been away but...' because there so apologetic and I'm not one to apologise for... nothing! I mean, this blog isn't changing lives or anything! That being said, whilst … Continue reading The future of this blog…

April Goals [have come and gone]

Is it too late to write about April Goals? Short answer: YES. I had this whole blog post idea to set some goals for last month and guess what? I got some sort of virus which knocked me out for two weeks, going on three! I hardly had any energy to do anything, which was … Continue reading April Goals [have come and gone]

Avoiding Bad Sponsors!

It happens every now and then; I'll receive an email from a company asking if I'd like to review a product. Most of the time it's been a successful interaction (see here and here) and I've ended up trying some cool products. Other times… well, I'll start this off by saying 'always trust your gut'. … Continue reading Avoiding Bad Sponsors!

Blogger Roll Call – part 4

It's been a while since I did a little blogger roll call. I've done a few in the past (here is my last one) and it's basically just my way of saying 'Hey, check out this cool blogger'. This time the people I'm sharing are a mix between new bloggers and really well established ones … Continue reading Blogger Roll Call – part 4

2018 Goals!

Yes! It's time for the annual goal setting blog post! It's not everyone's cup of tea, granted, but I love setting myself challenges. I feel like this year I've gone a bit overboard so I'm going to throw a load at the wall and see what sticks. You know... like pasta! These are in no … Continue reading 2018 Goals!

2017 goals // a review 

It's new year's eve. How? Why? I'm not a new year's celebrator but I do enjoy the fact that it's kind of a globally accepted day to self - review and set intentions. People often say 'it's just another day, nothing actually resets etc', but when we acknowledge a change in years and time what's … Continue reading 2017 goals // a review 

Favourite Posts of 2017

It's coming to the end of the year and, whilst you can bet your bottom dollar I will be doing a goals recap VERY soon, as well as setting new goals for 2018, I saw a few of my fave bloggers go over their favourite posts for 2017 and I thought it was a damn … Continue reading Favourite Posts of 2017

My Day Job

I don't know about you, but I love to know more about the bloggers I follow. Particularly what they do during the day. Whilst I know some bloggers are able to make this into a full time job [whuuut?] there are many who just do this as a hobby [like lil' ol' me] and hearing … Continue reading My Day Job

Amazon Associate 

I have recently signed up to Amazon Associates which is a way for bloggers to make commission by linking products - we get money if you click through and make a purchase - you, in no way, are affected by this bar the usual cookie dilemma! I know it can sometimes seem skeezy - how … Continue reading Amazon Associate 

Social Media Updates [aka Goodbye, Scumbag Sam]

As part of the new year and wanting to work on this blog I decided I wanted to smooth out my online 'brand'. Urgh. I hate using that word but it is what it is. I am in the process of weening myself off social media for personal life stuff [not fully, just taking a … Continue reading Social Media Updates [aka Goodbye, Scumbag Sam]
