You’ve worked with some great businesses to share their products – do you have any favourites?
I would say my favourite one so far has been with Beauty h. It was a last minute opportunity which I applied for on Twitter, and the very next day my mum and I were treated to a Spa Day in the New Forest for National Best Friends Day. It was lovely to be able to spend some spontaneous mum/daughter time, enjoy a massage, drink tea, eat cake and play crazy golf. A recent favourite is Back To Uni Essentials with Ryman Stationery mainly because I am a stationery addict.
In terms of blogging, what are your goals in the next 12 months?
Ooh good question. To be honest, I have never set any blogging goals, I just like to be surprised by whatever comes next. Although, as my final Open Uni course starts in October, I would say my main goal for the next 12 months is to try and balance blogging and studying.
Name one place on your travel bucket list and share why you’d like to visit there.
I would love to visit Bali because it looks beautiful and it’s all about the yoga. Going to Bali for a yoga retreat would be the absolute dream.
As Autumn has now arrived, what is your favourite thing about this season?
Dr. Martens, fluffy jumpers, hot chocolate, bubble baths, being all cosy indoors when it’s cold outside.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve received?
“Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try”. You never know what you are capable of unless you give it a go. Try something new and surprise yourself.
It’s so hard to just pick one blogger for this award as there are so many awesome bloggers out there. I have decided to pass the kindness onto the lovely Jade from jademarie.co.uk.
I have always admired Jade’s gorgeous photography and enjoy catching up with her fantastic blog posts, plus she has the coolest hair. Not only that, but I’m sure everyone who knows Jade will agree that she is such a kind and supportive member of the blogging community. Jade has included me in her Follow Friday’s on Twitter ever since we became friends last year and she is always so warm, friendly and approachable. Jade also co-runs Creators Clan, a twitter community for creatives and is always retweeting my posts. I am forever grateful for her continued kindness and as she has just launched her shop, I also wanted to share with you some of her awesome printables which you can buy once and use forever.
Stay tuned as Jade has more fabulous blogging products in the pipeline too…
