    What To Expect From Life’s A Catwalk In 2018

    At the start of this week I wrote a post looking back at 2017 on the blog. Having looked back at the previous year, I now think it’s time to look forwards. I’ve put together a little post to give you an idea of what to expect in 2018 and what my aims are for the blog going forward. Aims For 2018 Social Media Growth This past year I haven’t really focused that much on growing my social media channels. I want to stop neglecting them and actively attempt to grow them more in 2018. I particularly want to focus on Twitter and the dreaded Instagram. I tend to neglect…

    Christmas Gift Guide For Her With Groupon

    The thing about Christmas is that it can very quickly get out of hand and you’ve spent more money than you intended. Christmas is the most wonderful (and expensive) time of year. We all know that it is better to give than receive but it isn’t always as easy as that. Before I was self employed I spent a lot more on Christmas than I do now but circumstances change. When Groupon got in contact to see if I would be interested in putting a gift guide together I jumped at the chance. I wanted to be able to create a guide that shows you don’t have to spend a…

    Looking Back At 2017 On The Blog

    I did a similar review post this time last year and I think it’s nice to look back and see how things have gone. Hopefully I have progressed a little in 2017. 2017 On The Blog Content I’ve been really pleased with the content that I’ve put out this year. I have basically been focusing on what I would like to read. This has meant more posts on designer accessories whether that is discussing whether designer handbags are worth the money or finding dupes of my favourite pieces. Views I’ve never been one to focus on stats but at the same time it has been nice to see my views more…

    Why I Don’t Celebrate New Years Eve

    I can honestly say that I don’t get the appeal of going out on New Years Eve. You know when you have a night out planned and you convince yourself it’s going to be absolutely amazing, it never turns out that way. I feel like this post is probably going to make me look like a complete scrooge but I can’t be the only one that feels this way. New Years Eve It’s just a reason to get drunk I’ve never really seen the point in going out to get blind drunk and I feel like that’s most people’s intention when it comes to New Years Eve. Everyone gets carried…

    Ice Skating At The North Pole

    When the North Pole (in Cambridge, not where Santa lives) got in contact to invite me to go ice skating I jumped at the chance. I have been a couple of times before and if you have read my Christmas Bucket List you will know it was one of the things I wanted to do this month. North Pole This year it seems like there was so much more to do than previous years. The last time I came ice skating there was only the rink to enjoy. This year there was plenty of rides like the dodgems and a giant inflatable slide. There was also traditional fairground games with…

    Christmas Bucket List

    If you know me well you will know that I am not a very Christmassy person. This probably sounds weird given that I have done Blogmas two years in a row now. The reason for that is it helps to get me feeling a little more festive. I used to love Christmas when I was little but the older I have got the more that feeling has faded. This year I really want to try and enter into the Christmas spirit which is why I have put together a Christmas Bucket List. Christmas Bucket List Go Ice Skating For a couple of years in a row I would go ice skating…

    Letting The Little Things Go

    I feel like it’s very easy to focus on the small things that don’t really matter. There are times when I’m good at letting the little things go and other times when I’m quite bad. There are things everyday that irritate us and that’s just life. Dwelling on them isn’t going to make you feel any better. Letting It Go How many of you have woken up at 4am and lay there thinking about all the stupid things you’ve ever done? I know I’ve been guilty of this and it doesn’t make falling back to sleep any easier. The thing is there is zero point in thinking about what has…

    Dealing With Imposter Syndrome

    I think pretty much everyone at some point in their lives feels like they’re a fraud and will get found out. Like when you get a new job and you think they meant to hire someone else. I never really felt imposter syndrome until I left my full time job and became self employed. Imposter Syndrome When I became self employed I was aware that I had no real qualifications in the industry I was going to be working in. In the first few months work just landed in my lap and it wasn’t until about a year later that I realised things weren’t supposed to be that easy. I…

    Is It The End For Magazines?

    It must be a couple of weeks ago now that Glamour Magazine announced that it would no long be producing a monthly glossy, instead it will create a twice yearly beauty led editorial. Or course Glamour will still be online but their site will also have a beauty focus. Since this news was announced I have wondering whether it is the beginning of the end for magazines? The End For Magazines? To be honest this news should hardly come as a shock given that magazine circulation numbers have been falling for years. However, I didn’t really expect Glamour to make this move. When you look at the decline in figures…

    Does Competition Between Bloggers Ruin The Sense Of Community?

    With every other person now a blogger or course there will be competition between us. There are obviously some bloggers who are quite happy keeping their little corner of the internet as a hobby but for a lot of people they want to turn it into a career. Competition isn’t just in the blogging industry, after all how many times have you gone up against colleagues for a promotion. What I’m talking about today is competition between bloggers and how we can make this a positive. Competition Between Bloggers If you are trying to make blogging a successful career then I totally get why there is competition, after all you…
