SUMMER PINTEREST FINDS 2019

Hey everyone, welcome to or welcome back to the blog! At the beginning of Spring, I did a ‘Spring Pinterest finds’ post and I really enjoyed writing it, so I thought I would do another post just like it, but for summer instead! Before I go any further, I want to say that the credits for this blog post idea go completely to my lovely blogger friend Liv, @livv.gracee on instagram!

Pinterest is one of those apps that I am obsessed with now minute, don’t go on it for about a week and then go back on and fall in love all over again! Pinterest provides so much inspiration for me in terms of blogging, Instagram and life in general! There are some truly amazing snaps out there, some fabulous photographers and a wide range of aesthetic styles! It’s so much fun to sit, scroll and discover! These are some of the things that have caught my eye recently on Pinterest;

HOW TO GENERATE BLOG POST IDEAS!

Hey gals, happy Sunday! I hope everyone has had a lovely week and a good weekend so far! We are getting so close to the summer holidays now, and let me tell you I am so so excited! I can’t wait for a break from the stress of school, for a chance to have fun in the sun and more time to work on the blog! In summer, I want to work on uploading as much content as I possibly can, which means more blog posts and more ideas! Generating blog posts ideas can be super tricky and it’s easy to get caught up in the loop of unoriginality and generic posts! I have a few tips on how to avoid getting into this rut, and I thought I would share those with you in today’s blog post!

Today’s blog post is also a collab with the lovely Imaan! Imaan is sharing her tips on how to stay organised as a blogger, which goes perfectly with my post! Organisation is such a key part of blogging and can really effect whether you are able to upload lots of content or not!

HOW TO GROW AN *AUTHENTIC* INSTAGRAM FOLLOWING

Hey hey hey! Welcome back to the blog. I always have people DM me on Instagram asking me how to grow an AUTHENTIC Instagram following. I talk about Instagram and Instagram following quite a lot, and I have done a few blog posts on it before. One in particular that you guys seemed to like was ‘My Thoughts On Instagram Following’, which you can read here if you missed it. I thought today that instead of sharing my thoughts, I would share my tips so you can achieve a more authentic following.

However, just to summarise, I recently stopped caring about the number of followers I have on Instagram altogether, and I mean it. That doesn’t mean I don’t love and appreciate everyone that supports me, I have just become much more interested in working on my engagement and focusing on my content instead of the figures.

Here is how I believe you can accumulate an AUTHENTIC Instagram following; Continue reading “HOW TO GROW AN *AUTHENTIC* INSTAGRAM FOLLOWING”

JUNE BULLET JOURNAL <3

Hey everyone, welcome back to the blog! It’s been the longest time since I did a bullet journal blog post, as I took a few months off journalling to focus on school. As much as I love bullet journalling, it can be time consuming! This month I have started bullet journalling again, and I have in fact started a brand new journal!

My new bullet journal is one from MUJI. It’s a spiral bound A5 dotted journal, and I love it! The pages are quite thin, so the ink from my Mildliners is visible from the other side of the page, but I’m not too bothered about it. Just bear that in mind if you’re looking for a new bullet journal and are thinking of ordering this one.

2019 TITLE PAGE: I thought that as I started a new journal, I ought to do a title page to show that this journal is from 2019. I tried out some fake calligraphy (meaning I drew it using a fineliner, not an actual calligraphy pen). It’s not the best but it’ll do! I just wrote 2019 beneath hehe. I then drew some lavender stalks on this page. This was the first time I drew them – you’ll see them throughout the rest of my June BUJO spreads – and I kinda love them!

LEMON DRIZZLE LOAF RECIPE 🍋

Hey hey hey, welcome back to the blog! I can’t believe how quickly these past few weeks have gone by – June has turned out to be mostly a good month so far. A few months back, I posted a ‘5 Ingredient Easter Nest Cakes Recipe’, which many of you guys liked! If you want to give that post a read, click here. Lots of people have messaged me on Instagram and asked me to do more recipe posts, so I thought today I would share with you my current favourite recipe; Lemon Drizzle Loaf Cake!

If I’m honest with you all, cake isn’t my fave treat, in fact I’m not such a big fan! However, this lemon drizzle cake is so delicious! It has a super yummy taste and a lovely texture, which you can see a lil’ bit in some of these snaps. Also, it is super quick and easy to whip up as all the ingredients go into one bowl! If you want to know how to make this delish Loaf Cake, keep on reading.
