30 days of blogging September 2016

Sunday, August 14, 2016

Blogging everyday isn’t a new or revolutionary concept and it is something I’ve tried and failed at before but as I’ve been out of love with blogging for a while now I thought I’d give it ago.

I’ve raided pinterest for some ideas and I’m hoping to come up with my own. The plan is also to pre write my content from mid august onward so I can have get posts scheduled for every day in September. This might be cheating but who doesn’t prewrite content?

I’m hoping this approach will also fire me up to get writing content for October (ekkk October!)
The prompts:

Edit: I'm typing in advance - I've crossed out the one's i've done so far to try and keep track - sorry if it's annoying

Edit: I've removed the posts I haven't written, to get rid of the strike through. 
  1. Self portrait and 5 random facts
  2. A movie you never get tired of watching
  3. The last book you read
  4. 10 things that make you awesome
  5. Next holiday
  6. A day in the life
  7. What’s in your makeup bag
  8. My Starbucks Order
  9. Guilty pleasures
  12. Stationery or stationary
  14. Most used Apps
  15. Tips for events
  16. Hair products
  17. Can you remember your fist ever blog post
  18. Childhood toy – do you still own it?
  19. Planner Pen Haul
  21. Most worn shoes
  25. Skin care routine

  26. Favourite quote

 02/09/16 EDIT: I've have another swap round and moved things round. I have a paper list of ideas but I've taken off the days they will be written as some are about things happening in September and haven't yet happened. I've moved some things I'd planned for later in the month up as they were easier / I had photo's / I'd bought new things etc.

The first 9 days are all covered and  I want to try and make sure I get things in for all the days, so this weekend I need to concentrate on writing 3 posts to cover 10th, 11th & 13th. Then I'm covered until 19th and gives me plenty of time to get pictures, write posts and not worry or stress.

Apart from day 1 & 30 have I got any duplication's? Is there anything else you’d rather I write about?
Let me know as I’m going to start drafting some of these this week


YouTube Giveaway - Win

Sunday, August 07, 2016

Look at this two blogs in the space of a couple of days. Don't get used to it!

I was lucky enough to win a YouTube giveaway from Beth Tinkerbell and I thought I'd share my prize with you and let you know she has another giveaway for August so go and enter it.

After watching the original video I'd had a look on the Typo website and almost ordered a few things (essentials!) but managed to close the webpage before checking out.

Inside was a pencil case, this remind me of something but I can't put my finger on it. I don't think that it's something from Roxy or another surf brand but it's really bugging me what it remind me of. I love the colours and I think it's going to be come my handbag pencil case.

 There were also 4 papermate felt pen type pens, I think Beth uses these i her scrapbooking and journalling. I love the look of these pens but I haven't tried them out. I can't wait to try them.

12 rolls of washi tape and how amazing is the bunny and pineapple tape. I can't wait to use these in my planner. She also included a fine liner pen.

I also can't forget about the journal and the book marks.

I'm such a stationery junkie that I love everything and I can't wait to start using it all. I have a habit of saving this for best but I have so much stuff I need to use it so that is my plan. Not sure how it will be used but I will let you know how I get on!

Hello From The Otherside

Sunday, August 07, 2016

Well hello there,

Long time no blog, the reason? No real reason. I haven't really got much to say at the moment.

I have no inspiration to blog, I'm not sure I fit as a blogger any more. This isn't a woe is me blog for once but I just want to say I'm still about.

I've been a bit stressed with real life stuff, nothing too dramatic or life altering, just the little things.

I'm still about on social media albeit not as much and I haven't been interacting as much.

I've been playing pokémon go. Gotta catch em all. I'm loving it even if i'm getting the geek sideeye from a few people but meh! I like it and It's not screwed my data allowance. Thank you Metrolink for free Wifi on the trams. I even took a gym (Let me revel in my success for now)

I was also making quite a few YouTube videos. I got my self well in advance then it''s slid and I haven't opened my laptop in about a fortnight. I'm considering getting a netbook that is a tablet and smaller so I can edit and blog on the go?!!?! Any recommendations.

I have just won a give away from Beth which I'm going to blog about as thats the only Idea I have at the moment.

I have also stopped reading blogs which I guess makes me feel bad about writing one. My time management skills have gone out the window. What blogs are you reading? Give me ideas of who I should be reading and what kind of posts do you like reading? what would you like to see here?

I'm going to leave it there.
