I’ve recently been seeing a lot of people sharing their aims and ambitions across the internet, both on YouTube and blogs. I love setting myself goals and challenges (although I don’t always achieve many of them) so I thought I’d do the same. I was originally going to share my 25 before 25 list, but I realised that I’m only giving myself about two and a half years to accomplish all these things which is very unrealistic. So, 30 before 30 it is!
Social media and I have a love-hate relationship. In fact, I would definitely place us under the ‘it’s complicated’ category on Facebook. If you didn’t know, my full-time job heavily revolves around social media so a lot of my time is spent online, posting on and monitoring Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and various other platforms. I then finish work at 5pm and spend chunks of my evenings scrolling social media, both in a personal capacity and for my blog.
I think it’s safe to say that all of us are sick of winter now. The dark nights, freezing temperatures and the need to wrap up in a million layers before leaving the house is well and truly getting old. As the days are getting longer by minutes a week, I’m finding myself wishing for Spring to arrive more and more. Of course, sunnier days holds warmth, beer gardens and light nights which I’m looking forward to, but I also can’t wait to switch up my wardrobe and start wearing, well, less basically.
Happy Friday! I’m currently planted on the sofa waiting for my Deliveroo – chips with a side of prosecco (who knew my local chippy did prosecco?!). Since it’s finally February I thought I would look back on some of my New Year’s resolutions and see if I’ve managed to stick to them, whilst sharing some things that I’ve been loving over the past few weeks, so grab a glass of wine/prosecco/beverage of your choice!
It’s pretty common to feel demotivated and disheartened when you scroll through social media. As someone who’s a very small fish in a very large ocean full of bloggers and ‘influencers’, I’ve found it all too easy to fall into the trap of comparing myself to those around me which is definitely not healthy. However, recently I’ve been scrolling through my social media feeds with a whole different mindset – banishing those negative thoughts and instead replacing them with inspiration and ideas. I thought in this blog post I would share where I’ve been getting some inspiration from whether that’s inspo for photography, an outfit or even motivation to simply try and sort my life out.
