Blogging has become quite the hobby for thousands of young men and women, and I’m seeing more lately luxe staples being cemented into what is needed to be a blogger, we all know that Gucci belt, and those tinted Ray Bans everyone is wearing. But don’t be fooled, we don’t need them to be bloggers. Read more
I feel like over the past few years there’s been a shift in the way we’re supposed to view the world. “Just say Yes” is all over the place, people are telling you to make the jump and say yes to doing things even if you don’t feel ready, because impulse is important! I disagree. Read more
What I wanted to name this post was, “Why constructive criticism is important and why we should learn to take it well.” Since I’ve always been someone that is open to learning from where others think that I can improve, but only when it comes from a genuine place and it is constructive, and not just unwarranted criticism for the sake of it.
It’s no secret that Instagram has played a large role in trends and what bloggers, and even casual users of Instagram, choose to do in their day to day lives.

This obviously results in sore feet and blisters, and retreating back to my Vans that I know fit me.

In 2015 and 2016 I wrote a bucket list, and an updated version of that bucket list. I think the first time I was dreaming a little more, and the second time I was definitely reaching but also keeping my goals a little more sensible and achievable. I obviously don’t intend on rushing through my list though, and these are life goals, but I’ve actually managed to complete a few things off my list this time, so I’m here to update and replace the spaces I completed, with new goals.
When I entered the year 2017, I made a decision to prioritise blogging, and have new experiences. I managed to accomplish my goal, becoming proud of the work I’ve put into blogging on the later half of the year, and also having new experiences as well as just a boat load of fun. Read more
