How To Successfully Travel With Your Partner*

travel

Travelling is by far one of my absolute favourite things to do, and whether I’m travelling with my family, with friends or with Matt, I always have the most amazing time.

In the 18 months that Matt and I have been together, we’ve taken quite a few trips together (six in total, with a 7th one happening over the New Year) and I’d like to think that we’ve truly mastered successfully travelling together. We’ve never once had an argument or a disagreement while we’ve been away, and even though we literally never argue anyway, I think we travel so successfully together due to a number of reasons. Here’s eight ways that you can ensure that you’ll have a successful trip with your partner.

Despite all the incredibly frustrating drama regarding the horrendous algorithm, Instagram still remains as one of my favourite apps for gaining inspiration from fellow creatives.

53 Self Care Ideas For When You’re Feeling Burnt Out

The last few weeks have been pretty busy for me; (in the most amazing way) I’ve had so many incredible opportunities and so much work to do but there was a point where I was just trying to do too much and I sort of just ‘burnt out’. Now, don’t get me wrong, I don’t plan on slowing any of my projects down or working less harder, but I am planning to make more time for myself, and pay more attention to my self care routine in particular.

In today’s society and particularly in the blogging world, self care has become quite a phenomenon but instead of treating it like just another trend, I really think we should take it more seriously. That’s why today’s blog post is packed full of ideas of ways that you can take better care of yourself, especially if you’re beginning to feel burnt out.

How To Learn To Love Mondays

mondays

Ah Mondays. The one day of the week that the entire population seems to dread. When you’re laying in bed on a Sunday night and you suddenly feel almost nauseous at the prospect of going to work for another five days straight.

Fortunately for me, I’ve never struggled too much with the ‘Monday blues’, (Tuesdays on the other hand; don’t even get me started. I cannot stand Tuesdays for some reason). However, there are certain instances when I feel the dread creep up so I decided to put together this post to help you (and me) for those times when you need just a little extra encouragement to get out of bed on a Monday morning.

Making Memories With Printiki*

memories

For as long as I can remember, my mum has instilled the idea of making memories into our family and it’s something that we’ve all been doing for years now. It’s a concept that I’ve come to adore, and with my own fascination of creating ‘moments’ (as influenced by The Perks of Being a Wallflower), I love thinking of creative ways that I can preserve my memories forever.

Enter Printiki*.

Printiki are a photo printing service that allow you to choose from a range of different styles and sizes to print your photos off so that you can keep those precious memories forever. I absolutely loved using this service; it was so easy to navigate around the website (the only difficult part was choosing which images I wanted to print off!). I love how personal Printiki is and the fact that you can choose to add little captions to your photos is incredibly cute and makes everything that bit more memorable – especially if you’re prone to forgetting things like dates and places!

One Year Of Blogging

blogging

Today marks one whole year of me having this blog and I can’t even begin to tell you how incredible it’s been. If you’ve followed me for a while now then I’m sure you’ve kept up with most of my antics but just in case you’re new around these parts, I wanted to put together a sort of summary about everything that this little slice of the internet has been through in the last 12 months.

I’ve actually been blogging since 2013 but I’ve long since deleted those old websites of mine because they were unbelievably cringey. Since starting this blog however, I’ve grown in ways I can only imagine and I’m so immensely thankful for that.

To everyone who reads my blog, I can’t even begin to tell you how grateful I am, and without getting too emotional, it really has been one of the best things I’ve ever done.

Improving My Sleep Hygiene With Feather & Down*

sleep hygiene

If you follow me on Twitter, you may have seen me complaining about the fact that I suffer really badly with terrible nightmares. There are times when I wake up sweating and with tears streaming down my face and I usually always struggle to get back to sleep. Due to these horrendous nightmares, there’s many a night where I’m left restless and unable to partake in a lovely night’s sleep and that’s when I decided to do some research on sleep hygiene.

Sleep hygiene is basically a number of different practices and habits that are necessary to have a night’s good sleep and ensure that you spend the following day fully alert. When the lovely people at Feather & Down* offered to sene me some of their sleepy products, I jumped at the chance to try them out and see if they improved my sleep at all.

How I Grew My Pinterest Views From 3K To Over 58K In Two Months

pinterest

Pinterest has been one of my favourite apps for so many years now, way before it was used to increase blog traffic and as a means of finding delicious healthy meals, I used to use it as a way to pin images of my fave celebrities, funny memes and cheesy, inspirational quotes. Fast forward a few years and my use of Pinterest has changed somewhat (although you can still find a hearty selection of memes on some of my boards) and I’m now using it for more practical purposes.

It wasn’t until fairly recently that I realised that you can use Pinterest as a means of gaining more traffic to your blog, as well as finding unbelievably useful tips on the visual search engine.

In today’s post, I’ll be giving you the lowdown on how I managed to increase my monthly views on Pinterest from 3,000 views to almost 60,000 views in just a couple of months!

The term ‘girl boss’ has become an increasingly popular term over the last few years, especially in the online world. A ‘girl boss’ is someone who is empowering, uplifting and determined; she kicks ass. There’s an abundance of “real life” women who provide a constant source of inspiration to me every single day, but today’s post is all about the women from various TV shows and movies who I find incredibly inspiring – enjoy!

In order to soak up every bit of inspiration from these incredible women, you want to make sure that you’re watching them in style. The new Panasonic HDR 4K TV* brings the screen to life so you can fully appreciate your fave girl bosses’ sassiest in much better quality than just your average Joe TV.
