Bloggers Block

Bloggers Block

Since about May/June time, I have been quite productive in the blogging process.  Dare I say I upped my game?! I went from posting to no particular schedule (what I want, when I want, very inconsistently) to posting to quite a strict schedule (Once a week, every Saturday which then progressed to twice a week, Wednesdays and Saturdays. Each post 7am sharp.). This was great, I felt super accomplished and proud and I felt myself getting more recognition and opportunities because of this. Now this is where Bloggers Block comes in. Obviously, I mean what better timing right?

Today I have a fashion/style type post for you all which I haven't done a lot on this blog but as soon as I picked up this bag I knew I had to share it with you all! This exact bag isn't actually on the LYDC website but I thought I could give you a review on the quality etc and I will also link some similar (or just other) bags from their site! So about the bag..

As I write this post it is currently 12:05am and I'm wide awake and still very excitable because I just got back from such an amazing evening with Wren Kitchens, Linda Barker and Branded3. That's right, I just met Linda Barker!

Think Before You Speak - Weight

Think Before You Speak - Weight
Wednesday, 18 November 2015
Read post
Now as a child, growing up, I was always taught to think before I speak. Now this may seem like an obvious thing to be taught, along with 'If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all' I mean these are things I'm currently teaching my 7 year old brother, but now at the age of 20 (very nearly 21) I am finding more and more adults that in fact don't think before they speak and they say things even when they have nothing nice to say.

This may seem like a strange topic for a blog post so far but the thing that forces me to write this is that numerous times (uncountable in fact) this week I have had things said to me that have made me feel down right upset and in all honest truth, I don't think they were once meant as an insult. Just someone merely not thinking before they spoke.

As promised last week, today I have another #HBAlPorto hair product for you and it comes in the form of this Andrew Barton S.O.S Hair Repair Miracle Hair Oil (that's a mouth full!). Andrew Barton (The Mibelle Group) actually supplied us with a few products from their new (at the time) Summer Range but this is the only item I have tried so far.

As I didn't mention in this post (but should have), I have been a huge lover of Primula since I was a little girl. That's why when a lovely email dropped into my inbox asking if I would like to be part of their Primula Blogger Programme, I was overjoyed! As part of this opportunity I will be bringing you one recipe per month for the next 6 months, all including amazing products by Primula! (You may have also notice my snazzy new badge in the side bar)

Family Time - Baking

Family Time - Baking

Last week was my little brothers half term so we had to think of a few ideas to keep him occupied. I absolutely love baking but with a little one (he's actually 7, haha) baking from scratch isn't the easiest!

However, I did buy a few bake in a box type things (they were 3 for 2 in Tesco) so we had fun making some chocolate buns and also some plain/vanilla buns! Each of these sets only made 6 buns each which is why we made both. The best thing was everything (bar eggs and butter) was included in the set from the cake mixture itself right to the sprinkles on top!

Here's some pictures from our lovely baking day!

Our amazing #HBAlPorto goodie bags contained quite a few haircare products (stay tuned as next week will be featuring another) but one that stood out to me the most was this Phil Smith dry shampoo! I hadn't actually heard of this dry shampoo before (shame on me) but that made me all the more excited to try it!

CLOSED: Giveaway! (UK)

CLOSED: Giveaway! (UK)
Wednesday, 4 November 2015
Read post
As you may or may not remember from this post I mentioned that I was in the process of looking for a little giveaway prize to say thank you to celebrate the (at the time) 100 followers I had on Bloglovin'. Now this was back at the beginning of August and since then I have gone up to 177 Bloglovin' followers and I couldn't be more thankful! To say thank you properly I have finally got off my bum and bought a giveaway prize to giveaway to one of you! Now it's not much, but it's something just to show my appreciation and hopefully in the future I'll be able to give away something a bit bigger and/or to more than one of you.

So, I'll move on to the prizes. I'll say now that these prizes are aimed more at my female audience (sorry to any males out there - I can look at doing a male one in the future if wanted?) and that I had the idea of autumn/winter cosy night in, in mind. Hopefully this reflects in the items I choose and you all like them.

I'm very sorry but for shipping purposes this giveaway is only open to the UK. 
In the future I will be sure to do one that is worldwide!


Things I Wish I Had and Hadn't Done As A Beginner Blogger

Things I Wish I Had and Hadn't Done As A Beginner Blogger

So a week or two ago (depending on when I set this post live) I decided to take the plunge and buy myself a domain. This was after a little conversation with the lovely Alex from Champagne & Lemonade where she asked me (in a very nice/thoughtful way may I add) if I had ever considered getting myself a domain. Now I had considered it previously (around the time of my new blog design) but the thought of it petrified me (difficulty/commitment) so I always put it off. However, when Alex said this to me, I had a lightbulb moment and thought that if it was being commented on I must really pull my finger out and sort it! Within about 5 hours I officially had a brand new domain!
