Turning the Blog Into A Brand

When I started blogging in 2011, the social sphere looked pretty different to how it does today. There were no sponsored posts, no blogging communities and certainly no bloggers who had their own beauty ranges. Events were few and far between (although always well attended by the most lovely people) and there was no real ‘business’ or branding side to anyone’s websites. Blog’s were, blogs. They documented people’s lives in the most simple forms. They illustrated individual’s love of beauty, their passion for fashion or their dating disasters.

Precious Moments with WD

I’m sure every blogger (or keen photographer) can relate to the fact that photographs are very precious. We spend hours (sometimes days) preparing, perfecting and prepping the perfect shot – before then meticulously editing them to add vibrance to the colours.

Ridiculous Possibilities

David and I have been focused on the house over the past month or so, filling it up with lovely interior pieces to make an initially rather quite plain, new-build box feel like a warm and cosy home. It’s looking beautiful. However it’s also rather costly and although my Pinterest visions have not been compromised, we’ve certainly had to search around much more than we thought. One of our firm favourites throughout the process however, has been TK Maxx. I’ve never before fully appreciated how incredibly priced their products are and yet, how high quality they are too. We’ve stocked up…

Five Things To Do This Halloween

Halloween is almost upon us – and I don’t know about you but I’m VERY excited. There’s something very satisfying about having an occasion to celebrate and feel like a kid again. It’s an excuse to eat lots of sweet treats, get creative with your costume and spend the night with friends, spooking one another out. If you’re not opting for a night out this year, I thought I’d put together a couple of ideas for things you could do to celebrate instead. You don’t needs tonnes of money – just a creative brain and a few willing participants. Muhahahaha….…
