Hello beautiful people! thanks for stopping by once again , you are always welcome here! I have been thinking a lot more about travel recently, probably because when the going gets tough we just plan to escape, go anywhere rather than where we are at that particular moment. It really got me thinking about how much I am missing out on and there is a whole world out there needing to be explored. I made this list of some of the places I would love to visit (if ihad both the chance and the money) maybe one day I will actually get there!

What a crazy month this has been! It has been such an emotional roller coaster! I feel like this month, I have really determined some of my long term life goals as well as some of my potential blogging goals.

At the end of last month I wrote a post about some of the things I wanted to do in the early months of 2015 ( click here to view) I can honestly say hardly any of them have been actually achieved.
However, this upcoming month, I really want to change my blog in many ways.

I have outlined my future blogging goals and the sort of posts tat you can expect to see this month fom me. I have also linked belo some of my most popular posts so far and some of the posts that I enjoyed writing the most.

Hello everyone! Hope you weekend is going smoothly! Throughout my few months of blogging, I have developed a love for reading other blogs. The greatest thing is that not to blogs are the same so I am more than happy to read a variety. From fashion, to life style and even comics I find myself spending endless minutes online, catching up on my favourite blogs.
Some of these people have even turned out in my opinion, to be not only readers of my blog but also people that I could call friends.
To be honest, not all of the blogs that I read or show interest towards are written here but here are just a few of the blogs that I take my time to read!

Happy Friday!
The '50 ways' series are one of my favourite kind of posts to do and after what has been quite a busy week I think we could all do with a little motivation. I went searching out for some inspirational quotes, mainly around the overall topic of happiness. Mostly because I want you all to feel inspired, free and  literally unstoppable!
I have all added to the '50 ways' series by adding a little inspirational spoken word video for you all as a little addition. I hope you like it and find it an interesting addition!

Hello everyone!
I have really missed you guys! These past couple of weeks have been really hectic! Ad unfortunately so will the upcoming weeks be. This has meant that my blogging schedule hasn't really been going to plan! Also some of my more detailed posts that take a lot more time to write haven't been posted. I just want them to be the best they can be before I press that publish button. And for that I am really sorry!

Hello lovelies! I just wanted to have a little chat with you all today. I feel like I haven't done a post like that in a while with all the awards and advice posts I've been doing lately. I want us all to spend some special time today talking about things that are on our minds.
Sometimes, we may feel like there is no one to turn to when we are angry. Or like no one listens when we speak, like we are invisible.

Hey! I hope you are enjoying your week so far!
As far as I know , there is no official guide that tells you what you should do when you first begin blogging. I remember it like it was yesterday ( it practically was , it has barely been two months) After my first post, I felt so lost: I asked myself so many questions , Where are the followers? will I ever get followers? Is anyone actually reading this? I didn't even know what to expect. Recently, I have been getting some comments in relation on what to do with blogging and how to gain followers, So I put together this small beginners guide.To be honest I myself am a beginner , so I am still learning and I myself need to follow my own guidance. I just thought it would be nice, one blogger to another, to share tips and tricks to make blogging the most enjoyable experience possible.

Hello guys, Yes, I have been nominated for ANOTHER award. I would like to take this time to say a massive thank you. I haven't even been blogging for two months and I have received so much love from you all. Even your little comments that may not seem much to you, make my day. You take the time to read, respond to questions I ask and you also tell others about my blog and get others involved . I could not be more grateful. I have gained over 60 followers on GFC ,more that I could have imagined in this short time and to add to that, I have gained well over 100 followers on Bloglovin after just over a week. yes, people have a lot more, it may seem small to some, but to me it is something quite special. And I value every single one of you.

Today, I bring you the Liebster award! I am so glad to be doing this! I was nominated by not one , not even two but three of my amazing readers.

Hello awesome friends of the internet!
As promised, I have brought you the first of many in my new How to series. It is slightly different from what we are used to her at 'when she writes' but if we were all the same it would be a shame:)Plus, as mentioned in my previous post, I really want to explore new things with my blog.

But before we begin, I would like to welcome Laura from Blonde and Cupcakes! With almost 1,000 , yes ONE THOUSAND followers on Bloglovin, having only been blogging for around 2 months , Blonde and Cupcakes is set to take the blogging world by a storm! I have linked below details to her blog and other accounts so please go and follow her after reading!
I absolutely love her blog and she was kind enough to let me share her post titled: BLOGGING TIPS: THINGS I'VE LEARNT FROM BLOGGING SO FAR
I thought it is a simple but useful way to get us started on the 'how to' series as it has evidently worked for her and maybe it can work for the rest of us bloggers to!

Ok. I really apologise for letting you guys down with my schedule last week. I was meant to blog on Saturday but 'life things' happened and I really just couldn't bring myself to write about something that is meant to bring happiness but to be honest, I was feel that way myself. But I am back and dertermined to get things back in shape this week!

Im back again with my 50 ways to change your life series!(yay) I wanted to write a 'how to' or 'DIY' post but I would love you guys to give me some ideas.

I have recently been loving this instagram account called 'best sayingss' so I wanted to share some of their posts with you as they help to make me smile, so maybe they will make you too!
