All right so this is a little delayed isn’t it, this new style of life updates. Last year saw me spill rather alot over onto my blog personally and well, it kinda worked as a release. As a writer ( or as I like to consider myself anyway ), it does come naturally to sometimes put my feelings and thoughts into writted words, rather than conversations.

This year, and probably going forward, I’m going pretty old skool, like that Jacqueline wilson book. I’ll write in a Dear Diary format and lay my every day going’s on right here on my blog.

Come along for the journey, if you feel like it, if not, adios amigos.

Dear diary,

The new year has been pretty kind to me so far. If anything, it’s been wayyyy more productive than ever thought possible! With super sunday behind me ( as I like to call it ), I now have a brand new podcast live, Newsletter rolling – blog blast – and a content plan with things ACTUALLY ticked off it!!!!

Fancy joining in for Blog Blast? Sign up here!

I have content coming out of my ears, and the desire to get my face in the camera and showing on the gram! Is this what it feels like to be a real blogger?

I’ll be honest and admit that I was dubious for this year. It’s the first in forever where something pretty vital hasn’t been pencilled into my diary. No moving out, finishing university, getting a new job, planning a wedding or heading on honeymoon. Nil.

And yet 13 days in and I’m feeling right at home in this new year! So what’s been getting me excited this year? Here’s a quick list of things that’s got me buzzing this new year!

Cracking telly!

Netflix, babe, you killing me! I’ve binged YOU, loved Bird Box and excited for Stranger Things! If there’s anything to be excited for this year, it’s the stonking amount of cracking telly coming! I’m talking Game of Thrones amongst other things. Yeah, Netlifx, you started me off good and I am loving it!

New ideals

I’m feeling totally refreshed this year, including towards my spending ways and wardrobe persona. Since my overhaul and clear out, I have realised that spending need be constant and it’s probably best to spend more on those staple pieces. Whilst I am still yet to make any purchases this year, there are plenty of items clogging up my asos lust list!

Stomping on the ‘Gram

Like many bloggers I want to try and make the year of 2019 the year I grow on the gram. We all know how hard it can be to get traction and gain followers, likes and overall engagement. Although, I have conducted huge research and discovered ways to improve impressions and engagement without parting with any money! With a little work of my own, I’ve created something that seems to be working real well! I’m already making moves towards 2019’s goal and its only 2 weeks in!

Watch this space as I will be uncovering all next week in Blog Blast and in my exclusive content on how you can get a lil piece of the action, and some real insight in the improvements I have seen!

So Dear Diary, as you can see I have had a fairly productive start to a new year. I have made some real traction in the blogging sphere and I feel ready than ever to take things next level!

There are lotsssss of content pieces coming and I’m like a kid at Christmas and cannot wait to share!

See you in a week or so!
