I recently shared a reflection of my 2018 over on my Instagram stories, but it’s been a pretty exciting year for me so I thought I would expand on it over on my blog, too. I even managed to tick a couple of things off my 30 Before 30 Bucket List, which you can read here, which I was not expecting to be able to do so soon!
Hello everyone! Long time no speak. Today’s blog post is a bit of a different one because, if you haven’t already guessed, I recently made a very exciting trip to the good old US of A. And I still have the ever so painful jet lag as a lovely souvenir. I thought I would share some of the snaps I took whilst over there in one big blog post – all of these were taken on my phone (iPhone 8 Plus) which I quite like for a change because it gives a raw and accessible feel. Let me know what you think of this style of post!
It’s no secret that the news is full of tragic events – pick up a newspaper and its slim pickings to find anything remotely positive. Bad news sells papers after all. Reading stories about the horrors happening across the globe is a sure fire way to get you down, and whilst it’s vital to stay informed, it’s equally as important to remind yourself that not everything is doom and gloom. In an attempt to cheer things up, I’ve put together some uplifting news stories to warm your heart…
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.
