Back in summer 2013, I had just finished my A-levels and found myself with plenty of time to spare. After reading so many blogs and loving the idea of having my own to record all of my memories and thoughts, I decided to create my own. Inspired by a blog I loved (Sprinkle of glitter) and her Motivational Monday posts, my first post was all about simple ways to put a smile on your face. My intention was to make that a monthly series, but if you have been reading my blog for a while you will know that I cannot stick to a blogging schedule; I only write when I feel inspired or have something to say! Bloggers block is the worst and during university, especially in the final year, I experienced that a lot. Luckily now I have found the perfect balance and post every Friday. My blog is full of wonderful memories and moments that I will cherish forever. Even now I love looking back on what I got up to a couple of years ago!
I think the reason I have carried on blogging for so long and not stopped for four years is because I love being able to look back on years of memories. I love recording and looking back at the things I've done, things I've achieved and seeing how much I have changed and grown as a person. Blogging has enabled me to have so many amazing experiences which I would never have had if I hadn't created my own back in summer 2013. One amazing opportunity which stands out to me is being invited to stay at Ox Pasture Hall hotel for a night and being treated like royalty; it was the most beautiful place in the countryside and I'll never forget it. Alongside amazing opportunities, I've been lucky enough to work with some great brands. Some of my favourite brands I have collaborated with include Renshaw icing (creating this delicious gingerbread house), Amara for beautiful home-ware reviews and Talking Tables for their generosity and lovely PR team. I can't wait to continue collaborating with exciting and new brands!
For me, my blog wouldn't be a blog without the wonderful support I have had throughout the years by my family and the blogging community. Every comment, like, read, follow and share from any of my platforms means a lot to me, so thank you all so much for continuing to read my blog and giving me the motivation to continually carry on! With wonderful support, comes the most amazing things. My favourite blogging moment happened last year when I wrote a feature for Blogosphere Magazine. I love Blogosphere magazine as it is written for bloggers by bloggers so it was a real privilege to write up an article and see it in print. I have wanted to write an article for a magazine for years so it was great to tick that off my list and now I have a beautiful magazine on my coffee table which I can and will cherish forever!
