Guys, I’m sure you, like me right now, are sitting at home in front of a fan trying to think of any way you can keep cool. It’s weird that this seems to happen any time there’s some sort of heat wave in the UK isn’t it? You would think we’d have some up with some sort of coping mechanism by now. I don’t know about you, but when I’m…

First of all, just a lil side note: I feel like I’m really struggling to keep on top of blogging and life at the moment, hence the lack of recent posts. A lot has been going on lately, I got a new job (woohoooo), I’m in the process of moving into London (double woohoo) and I’ve just got back from a trip to Copenhagen (blog posts pending). I’ve also recently…

Ello people. Seeing as part one of my SEO tips for blogging went down a bloody storm with you lot, I’m back with part two. For those of you who missed part one, feel free to head over there before reading this, where I give a lil bit of background about what SEO is and why it’s important.

Disclaimer: I’m no expert but have learnt a few handy things about SEO I thought you might find handy. I use WordPress so all tips in this post on how to do something will be WordPress-based. SEO – you probably hear it so much but are you really aware of a) how important it is, and b) what to do to create SEO-friendly content? To put it plainly, SEO or…

Admit it. Since you started blogging you’ve defo thought about how great it would be to be a full-time blogger right? Me too – tbh I can’t think of anything better to call ‘work’ than writing about my life from the comfort of my own home. Surrounded by snacks and blankets too, obvs. Anyway, back to reality. Keeping up a blog alongside a full-time job can be time-consuming and sometimes…

(N.B I had to post this from my iPad againnnn as my laptops being difficult, so apologies for the crap stock image thnx x) So this post is going to be different to the usual kind of things I write about. Instead of writing about my weekend in London, or five winter destinations you have to visit (shameless self-promo lol) this post is going to be different in that it’s…

2017 is in full swing already, and while I’ve already written about my general life goals for 2017, I thought it would also be interesting to come up with a blogging plan for the year. Y’know seeing as I’m trying to take blogging a lil serious now, it can’t hurt to give myself a little guidance right? That way, I can track how well I’m doing, see what’s working and…

It’s 2017! And, it’s that time of year again where everyone and their dog makes the same new years’ resolutions (drink less, eat healthier, join the gym – you know the ones) that get forgotten about and then brushed under the carpet as if they never existed. I’m not really big on new years’ resolutions, but think it’s always good to keep a mental (or literal, in this case) note…

Disclaimer: I wrote this when I was hungry. If you know me, you’ll know I loooooooooove to eat. My favourite thing about Christmas is the food, hands down, and I just love a substantial meal. Christmas is the time for sooo much good food – roast dinners, desserts, Boxing Day buffets, chocolates and treats. I literally cannot wait (I sound so fat lololol). But, with anything, with the good also…
