Happy Halloween | Life and Blog Update

Happy Halloween!

Today I thought I would give you a brief life and blog update, because I haven't for so long.

So, what's been going on in my life?

Lots of work. I work full time, as well as having a Saturday night job. I also run my blog and YouTube channel. Additionally, I'm working on 2 projects at the moment. I need sleep! However, I don't seem to be too familiar with that concept recently. I'm travelling a lot, and I am off to London this weekend, so it's all go.

What can you expect from the blog in the coming months?

A few posts a week - either written by me and from me, or someone else. That someone else being a brand typically, or another blogger. (This hasn't happened yet but it might.) All my guest posts have Guest Post in the title, and aren't signed off by me so that you're aware. I accept Guest Posts as it's an interesting way to share new brands, concepts and ideas on here. I only accept things that I think my readers may be inter…

Strong Roots | Cooking

I don't know about you, but I just love food, and cooking of course.

I find there's something so therapeutic about cooking, but sometimes we don't have enough hours in the day to prepare a meal from scratch, and on days like that, I have found some of the most perfect products to help.

Warning: This post is photo heavy!!:D

Well. Here we are. Somewhere I didn't think I would ever be. I never expected this many people to read my blog, and I certainly didn't expect it to turn into what it has. I can't believe I am about to type this, but my blog, my little blog, has amassed over 50,000 views.

If you go back on my blog, or if you've been a reader for a while, you might have seen some milestone posts I did back in the day, when I hit 1000 and 5000 views. I haven't done a milestone post since, and here we are with over 50,000 views.

I am actually closer to 60,000 views now than 50,000 by the time I have gotten around to writing this. Crazy stuff.

Something else that is kinda crazy, is that the lovely guys from bakerdays have sent me (me!) a cake to celebrate. Thankyou so much for my yummy gift, it certainly went down a treat and was a perfect way to to enjoy this achievement.

They know I love flamingos. Who doesn't?

You can win yourself a personalized cake for you or a loved one by lik…

Mystery or Misfortune? | Guest Post

Knock on wood, avoid the cracks in the pavement and keep your fingers crossed as it’s that time of the year again. That’s right, coming up is Friday 13th… 

Paraskevidekatriaphobia or Friggatriskaidekaphobia is the official name for the phobia of Friday 13th. Fears surrounding the superstition are also surprisingly common, in fact new data reveals that 49 million Brits dread the date.
The history and origins of Friday 13th fears are widely debated, however, two examples are consistently referenced. The first, is that Jesus Christ was crucified on a Friday and Judas Iscariot who betrayed Jesus was the 13th guest at the Last Supper.

The second event, dates back to 1307 when King Philip IV of France commanded for hundreds of members of the Knights Templar to be arrested, they were then tortured and burned alive!

In the modern day, superstitious people believe that Friday 13th brings bad luck to employment, finances and even love. Dating and relationships can be affected which is proved by the…

Let’s talk about content creation on holiday

There’s nothing better than having the opportunity to escape your day job and break free for a short while. For me, whether that’s a weekend away or a summer vacation, it’s always welcome. My problem is however, I have jobs that don’t just require the 9-5 malarkey. Yes, I work 9-5(.30) in an office, but I also have my blog and YouTube channel which suck up any free time I have. I don’t call it a job, more a labour of love.

I wish I could go somewhere and just completely, utterly, switch off. However, when I’m away, it’s the perfect time for content creation. I can make nice videos in hotel rooms and take pretty pictures of pretty scenery. I would hate to miss up on this opportunity. This weekend coming, I am off to Center Parcs with my family. We go every 12-18 months, and it’s my favourite place in the world. I feel relaxed, I have so much fun with my nearest and dearest, and I feel safe and secure and fuzzy inside.
Funnily enough, because we haven’t been for 18 months, I haven’t…
