Thank you so much to Orbb’s Fashion for the nomination, awesome, so grateful! (and sorry it took me a while to do this post). Please check out her lovely fashion blog, which features themed picks across a range of clothing stores, often focussing on affordable ranges for those of us who might be a bit skint! My current favourite is Youthful Exuberance – loving the blue suede boots and heart shaped pastel sunglasses!
I’ve been nominated for the Liebster and Sisterhood of the World bloggers awards! Thank you so much to Gem Livia and Sarahanne14 for the nominations, so grateful!

Two Months! I remember sitting down two months ago and thinking how amazing it would be to get maybe five followers (and begging my nearest and dearest to be my first followers – did anyone else do this or just me?). Here’s five things I’ve learned from my two months as a blogger, hope you can relate: 🙂 Continue reading My Two Month Blogiversary
Feeling so happy…I’ve just been nominated for my second blog award in a week! I so love being part of the blogger community – such a warm, positive and welcoming atmosphere! Thank you to Jen at avoninsiderblog for nominating me – check out her blog if you haven’t already. I love her recent post on Pantone’s Colour of the Year: Marsala, especially as I’m half way through writing a post on this colour myself for a future Colour me Friday post!

Four weeks today! When I started this blog I was (and still am) recovering from pretty major shoulder surgery. I could hardly use my right arm (I’m right-handed) and could only manage short bursts of left-handed typing, timed to my painkiller intake. Fast forward a month, and I’ve had an awesome Christmas and new year, spent precious time with family, managed a bit of left-handed wild pony taming, and yesterday returned to work (well, every silver lining has a cloud). On top of this, when I combine my WordPress and Bloglovin’ followers I have 92 followers! To many of you, this may seem tiny, but to me, this is huge. Every new follower makes me feel proud and happy and “warms the cockles of my heart”! Thank you! Continue reading My Four Week Blogiversary
My blog is two weeks old today! I have no idea what I was expecting, but so far I’m loving it. This year has been really challenging and I almost got to the point where I lost my relentless and “naive” (to quote one of my best friends) belief in humanity. Well I have to say that the past two weeks have really started to restore my faith in this regard – and that’s down to YOU lovely people!
As a very tiny thank you I’m starting an occasional reblog of some of my favourite posts from my new-found blog friends. First up is Melba Sunshine. One of those people that you just know you’d be friends with in real life, I love her use of colour and pattern in the below reblog, and her travel posts actually make me want to visit the places she’s describing, even if I’ve never heard of them, such as Troyes, France, featured in “A very french road trip.” She was also the very first person to like one of my posts and follow me! Thanks Melba Sunshine!
