Am I a Bad Blogger?

Am I a Bad Blogger?

All in all, I don’t know what it takes to be a “Good Blogger”. I can’t stick to a schedule. I hate writing emails. I don’t know what a linky is and I couldn’t care less about my DA. I’ve hovered on the same follower count for months. Does that make me bad at blogging?

Review: MAC Fix+ Goldlight

Review: MAC Fix+ Goldlight

I’d always wanted to try the MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ setting spray. Sylvia Gani is one of my favourite YouTubers, and she swears by the stuff. MAC is one of the top tier makeup brands I use, although I mostly own lipsticks and a couple of eyeliners from them. The quality is always next to none. So when I found myself with a handy discount code, I went in for a bit of a splurge and knew the one product I’d have to pick up was some Fix+ setting spray. But as it turns out, there’s a whole new range of Fix+ sprays!

Things you Should Definitely Spend Money on in Blogging

Things you Should Definitely Spend Money on …

The more into blogging you get, the more seriously you’re likely to take it. And if you really want your blog to become something more substantial, a free Wordpress plan isn’t going to cut it. The costs of the Wordpress.com business plans can look a little daunting, and one common thing I see amongst new and emerging bloggers is “do I really need to pay for this? Is there any way to do this on the cheap?”. So today, I thought I’d compile a list of everything I do think it’s worth spending money on when it comes to your blog. And to be honest – it’s not much!

Post Graduation – My Anxiety and Mental Health

Post Graduation – My Anxiety and Mental Health

On my graduation day I was a picture of pure happiness. Surrounded by my family, I chatted to my classmates comfortably and spent the whole day with a massive grin on my face. I was perfectly happy until a few days afterwards, when photos started popping up on Facebook. I started to realise that, in spending time with my family, I’d missed out on getting involved in group photos with my classmates… And whilst that didn’t really matter, it did make me feel pretty lonely. All through uni you’re told about making those “friend’s for life”. And in that moment I just felt like I’d failed.

Finding a Love for Sheet Masks

Finding a Love for Sheet Masks

Most sheet masks follow the same pattern; remove the mask from the packet, stick it on your face, let it sit for 15-20 minutes, take off. Throw away the sheet, and then rub in the excess product. Ta-da; done! Most of them provide a quick boost of ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, vitamins, and targeted ingredients to suit the purpose of the mask. Whilst most sheet masks aim to moisturise, a few brighten, deep clean, or purify the skin.

Eco-Friendly Body Care with e’lifexir

Eco-Friendly Body Care with e’lifexir

I recently was very kindly sent a sample pack from e’lifexir of it’s full range of body care products. There are seven products in the pack in total, and each one promises to carve out and define a specific part of your body. Now, I should point out this isn’t a full review, but more of a first impressions type thing, simply because I only got five sachets of each product. Not really enough to figure out if the products work long term. But, I have enjoyed using them on all 3 occasions I’ve saved to do so, so I’ll go over it here.

Self Heating Jacket Review with 8K Flexwarm

Self Heating Jacket Review with 8K Flexwarm

When 8K Flexwarm got into contact with me and asked if I’d like to try one of their jackets, I jumped at the chance so fast I may have come off as slightly desperate. The jackets they make are an absolute innovation. Not only are they weatherproof and stylish, they heat themselves up. That’s right – they are coats with inbuilt heaters. An absolute dream come true for us perma-cold guys and girls!

When Blogging Stops Being a Hobby…

When Blogging Stops Being a Hobby…

I blogged for so long because I loved it. Even when I had some bad experiences, I wanted to write. Even when I thought the world was against me, blogging instilled a confidence in me I’d never had before. I’ve met some amazing people, and had some amazing experiences, all because one day I decided to make a Wordpress account. I’ve broadened a skill set I didn’t know I needed. But 2018 has really been the year that this blog has stepped away from that “hobby” branding, and become what is essentially a job.

Exploring the Isle of Skye

Exploring the Isle of Skye

Tom and I just got back from a week on the Isle of Skye, AKA the Misty Isle, and I’m not over it. Aside from some initial rain, we had amazing weather, went on some awesome hikes, saw some pretty amazing sites, and spent our evenings relaxing in front of the fire. This post will be an overview of our experiences, with later posts to come on my favourite sites in a little more details (i.e. I took over 200 photos of the Fairy Pools and they deserve their own post…).

Making a House a Home with BoConcept (AD)

Making a House a Home with BoConcept (…

BoConcept’s home accessories section is where I’ve been directing my search for the perfect little details to make me feel more at home in my little cottage in Orkney. I love the Scandinavian attention to detail, and so each piece creates a real talking point in any room.
