Life Updates & Q+A

'The sun will rise and we will try again'

Hello hello, it's a brand new day. A lot has changed over the past couple of months with me. I have been filled with a new type of inspiration that is hard to explain. There will be some few upcoming changes to my blog as well, which I think you all will be looking forward too!

Q1 - 'What is your favourite type of post to write?'

I love to write about most things. I love reading a lot so writing book reviews are always fun! But I also love writing my 'A Note On...' series as well because I feel like I am really offering advice to my audience. 

Q2 - 'Girl just how are you? Life looks good and I love your blog?'

At the moment, I am doing really well. I am working for myself as well as attending university and I am working hard on discovering the balance between the two. My friends and family are all really supportive as well which makes being able to write about what I love a lot easier. 

Q3 - 'How do I get more readers to my blog?'

This is a difficult question and one that I get asked a lot. Everyone has to start from somewhere. My best advice is to keep writing. Just keep going, keep putting out content. Even on those days where your brain is stuck and you think that no-one is really going to care about what you write about anymore, sit down and write. Blogging does have its difficulties and I am not going to pretend that it's fun all the time, but as long as you are writing about something that you are passionate about, then you should be fine. 

Q4 - 'Where are you from?'

I get asked this a lot too, especially on Instagram and Twitter. I am from England and I am currently studying in Surrey but I am actually a country girl at heart. 

Q5 - 'How long have you been blogging for now?'

I have been blogging since early January, so eight months now! It has gone so so fast! But I have loved all of it. 

Q6 - 'How long does it take you to get a good photo for your blog?'

This is such a good question. It really depends what I am taking a photo of and why I am taking it. If it is for a personal post, I genuinely find it easier because there is no pressure. But if I am taking a photo for a review or to highlight a product, then I really want it to look the best it can. 

Life Updates:

So, let's get onto these blog and life updates:

I will be posting three times a week from now on! I know, it sounds like a lot and I am unsure how reliable I will be once I have started uni again but I am really excited about the new series I will be doing on Friday evenings! 

It will be called *drumroll please* 


Recently, whilst doing my food shopping I have started to think about all the meals I make for myself at university and how I do it so cheaply. Most of my demographic for my blog consists of students as well. So...every Friday from now on will feature a cheap recipe, an easy meal idea or a top tip to save money when making food! I am super excited and I hope you are too. 

Thank you all for your ongoing support and interest. It keeps me writing and inspires so many new ideas! LETS ROLL ON FRIDAY!
