Happy 3rd Blog Birthday

Three years ago, I began a rather interesting online journey in the form of a blog. Never for a second did I imagine than my writing would be anything other than a hobby, three years later though I have made a whole group of new friends, have met some incredible people and I have experienced some amazing opportunities all thanks to being a blogger.

What is a blogger? I’m not entirely sure. I may have spent the past three years sharing posts online, but as far as I’m concerned, I’m just a girl with a laptop that likes to share some parts of her life online. Don’t get me wrong, I love blogging but it hasn’t come without its issues.…

Getting Back To Blogging

Since having to hold back on blogging last month I’ve been desperate to make a return.

I’ve seriously missed sitting at my Macbook reflecting upon the day gone by, reviewing products and sharing snaps of my little ones as they grow. Over the years my blog has blossomed into far more than I could have ever imagined – it has become my memory log, my sharing space and a part-time venture to promote products through honest reviews.…

Taking A Break From Blogging

I was originally intending on spending this morning drafting out my weekly linky posts and such like. However, due to a recent security issue I have chosen to take a break from blogging.

Whilst I adore blogging, my family will always come first. Their safety and security is my top priority and for this reason my blog and social media posts may be few and far between for the time being.

Thanks for your understanding.

Misshapes, Mistakes & Misfits

I’m not sure whether it’s sheer exhaustion or the fact that I’ve been writing most of my blog posts using my IPhone, either way having read back upon previous posts I’ve discovered a rather large amount of errors.

I would like to take this opportunity to apologise for my errors and to explain that whilst I adore writing, I’m more than aware than I’m not exactly gifted at grammar nor spelling for that matter. I’d love to be able to write the perfect post first time around but it never really works out that way. I really ought to read through my work more than once before pressing ‘publish’ but with time constraints I tend to type and take off.…
