SAYING NO TO BEAUTY STANDARDS

Or more specifically, saying no to beauty standards set by bloggers. I get it, I’m a blogger, I understand that when we get sent things in the post or when a company reaches out to us with a pitch that makes the reader feel good about themselves – by changing this and that about themselves it’s a tempting feat. Because us “setting” these standards, is somewhat accidental. I’ve written posts with the intent of making my readers feel good about themselves, by offering tips of things that they can do to change. I’m guilty as charged – but I understand how you feel reader. So, here’s to saying no. Read more

USING PINTEREST TO GENERATE BLOG TRAFFIC

Pinterest is a great website, I use it for inspiration, I use it for ideas and I just really love to browse the website whenever I can. Using it for my blog has become a “new” thing for me lately.

ON MAKING THE MOST OF THE UNEXPECTED

I’m the kind of person who always has a plan in my mind, I like things to go exactly as I’ve envisioned them going and I love to have every step laid out. Of course, when the unexpected comes into play, my plans are ruined and it will destroy my mood for the day. Well, it used to anyway. A lot has gone on over the past twelve or so months that I’d say weren’t in my plans. A lot of big events for me were unexpected whether they’ve been good or bad. I’ve been learning to embrace it.
