8 BLOGS YOU NEED TO BE READING

Wow. I've just woke up and did my usual social media checks before starting the day properly and finally getting out of bed and I've hit 200,000 views. I'm actually slightly lost for words. I cannot describe how thankful I am. I'm so thankful for you all and also for all of the opportunities I've had and the people I've met through this little blog that I created in my room one day when I was bored.

When starting my blog in 2014, I didn't even think about hitting 100 views and when I eventually did, I was gobsmacked.. So you can probably imagine how overwhelmed I'm feeling right now. It's strange because before creating my blogger profile to start my blog, I use to watch a lot of Youtube videos about certain people hitting milestones and I use to think how crazy it is and now it's happening to me. Every milestone that my blog has, I think that it's going to stop there but it never does and it's carried on growing and growing and that is slightly scary (not gonna lie!) but I'm also excited.

This post is probably going to be really short but I just want to say thank you, thank you for reading my blog because it honestly makes me so happy. I love having this little space where nobody can set the boundaries for me and I set my own rules and write about exactly what I want to write about. That is an amazing feeling for me.

I can't say it enough but thank you! Thanks for all the continuous support. I love every single one of you.

TOP AUTUMN & WINTER SALE PICKS



From time to time, I think it's really important to remind ourselves what's really important in our lives because with apps like Instagram and other social media platforms, we are constantly surrounded by popularised individuals online and that can be daunting for maybe many of you reading this. We are suffocated by this 'perfect' life that is inflicted on everyone online.

The 'perfect' life consists of lots of money, a big house, a successful career and lots of gold, but what do we have? I'm going to be straight with you here by saying that I am so guilty of this myself but it's OK to look up to these people because you as in yourself want to be successful but don't get overwhelmed and envy of what other people have because that just gets you no where and you gain nothing. You should never be comparing your life to somebody else's life as there is always somebody who has something that you don't have but equally you will have something that somebody else doesn't have. It's just the way life works and something that us humans have to agree to.
The point I wanted to make in this post was that it's okay to have inspiration and to have somebody you look up to that you find interesting and you would love to be in their position one day but always remember where your home is and where you got brought up and never get caught up with the things you see certain people owning online because it's not real life. Take a step back to appreciate everything you have because I can guarantee that somebody has it so much harder. We all have down moments (even Beyonce!) and it's important to remember that it's normal and real life. It's refreshing to remember that the celebrities in the press seem like they have the perfect life because they have lots of money and they're always smiling but not everything is publicised and just because somebody has 'fame' doesn't mean that they don't get sad and EVERYONE in this world has bad days and you only ever see bits of somebody's life that they want you to see, not the bits that they don't want you to see.

Appreciate your family and tell them you love them because it's always nice to remind them that behind dark clouds, there's a sunshine and everything gets better. It's normal to have bad days.

Hello! It's been a while that we've had a chat hasn't it? I've been looking forward to writing this post as I haven't spoken to you all in a while and I feel like I've lost touch with my audience and that makes me sad, to be honest. I wanted to do this because I feel as some of you may have noticed that my schedule has been a bit all over the place lately and I wanna update you all about what's been going on! I also desperately want to get back on track with blogging and content creating. I was involved with something outside of blogging a few months ago that took up a lot of my time and I just haven't been able to get back into a solid routine that I had before (which sucks but it's going to change)

I want to talk about something which has took a toll on me recently, I don't want to go in depth about it because it's very personal to me and my family but sometimes unexpected things happen and you have to take time out in order to find yourself again and that's exactly what I've been doing these last couple of weeks. I've been coming to terms with changes within my family life which I never thought would actually happen. I just want you to know that taking a break from things can give yourself time to adjust and we all need to take a break now and again (and that is perfectly okay)

Also recently, I have been CONSTANTLY tired to a point where I do something as little as clean my bathroom and I'm literally dragging myself to bed straight afterwards because it's took all my energy, I'm in the process of making a doctors appointment to try and see what the problem is so I can sort that out because it's not even as if I don't sleep because recently that's all I have been doing, which just makes me feel like absolute shit so I definitely want to sort that out as soon as possible (as I know too much sleep isn't good either but I just haven't been able to stop myself aha!)

This was a very quick post just to keep you all in the loop and let you know that I am here and haven't abandoned my blog and I'm still very much alive n well! Blogging is something that I enjoy so much and I never want to put it to the back of my mind and I haven't to be honest, it's been getting me down and all I've thought about (when I haven't been sleeping that is!) but I never want any of you to think that I have discarded it because it's something I love so much and also something I work so hard on!

There will be a new post Sunday! And remember that none of us have been trained to expect the unexpected and sometimes things get to much and that's okay, we're human. It's OK to take time out for yourself. Head space is so important
