Howdy lovlies,

Hope you’re all well?

Today is an exciting day! A year ago today I posted my first blog post on Beauty In Beta (which you can read here if you’re interested) which kick started this amazing journey I’ve been on.

I started this blog as a way to channel all the things in my crammed head into a little place I could call my own. I wanted to start something new, I wanted to meet new people. I wanted to try and write about my passions and hopefully inspire others to do the same.

So on my 1st Blog Birthday, I thought I’d write a little post of my random thoughts. Strap in, it’s probably going to be a long one!

Little did I know that a year later I would consider blogging such a massive part of my life. I’ve met SO many amazing people on my journey, and some who I now consider best friends. They’re the first people I speak to in the morning, and also who I can always count on. They’re the ones who can sense when things aren’t going so well, and they’re the first people to message me. The type of support I’ve received from the blogging community is unparalleled. Never have I found a group of people who are so happy for eachother, who are so passionate about their creations that

Of course it hasn’t always been an upward journey. I’ve faced severe self doubt, uncertainty of if I was good enough (which still plagues me), people telling me that I’m not good enough, really intense personal criticism, but the good always outweighs the bad.

Looking back, I’m so proud of everything that I’ve done, even things that I never thought I’d be able to do. Of course some of the things I struggle with, are likely to never go away completely, but I’ve met others who suffer from the same problems, so I now have that strong support network helping me along the way. I’ve also learned that there are always going to be people who try and pull you down, but in the end, that’s their problem, not yours. If they are hateful enough to intentionally make you feel bad about yourself, then that’s their negative outlook that needs to change, not you. 

Howdy lovlies,

Hope you’re all well? So, yesterday I uploaded a little video of my September Favourites as I thought it might be fun to do it in video form! I also did a first look at the Zoella Beauty products by Zoella that I got recently! I hope you like it! If you do, please do give it a cheeky like, and leave me a comment! Oh, also if you’re not subscribed, why not make my day and sign up to see some more of my videos! :)

 

Howdy lovlies,

Hope you’re well?

Yesterday a couple of exciting things happened, so wanted to tell you all about them! Firstly I had the chance to be on the radio which was pretty cool! I was on the Unlyshed Show with Alysha Wood talking all about Beauty And Beta and beauty tips, as well as talking about Healthy Selves and wellness, which was so great. It’s up on the site now, so if you missed it and would like to listen, you can click on the podcast below. I’m on from about 1hr 12, but it was a great show, so I’d definitely recommend listening to the whole thing if you get a chance!

Also yesterday was exciting because it was the launch of the Blogging Gals website, which is the brainchild of the gorgeous ZeenaXena

Howdy lovlies,

I hope you are well?

Today’s post is about something fun that my husband and I are going to start doing soon, and wondered if there are any other couples who’d like to take part too! :)

I actually saw the idea for this on the twitter page of Matt Edmondson, who is a radio 1 DJ! He was speaking about Alphabet Dating, so I had a quick look online and saw a few people taking part, and thought, why not! The main idea behind it is that you go on dates that start with the letters of the alphabet, for example for A you could go to an Aquarium, B for Bowling, C for Cat Petting etc! :)

My husband and I have been together for nearly 8 years, so there have been a lot of dates. Of course they’re all lush because we’re together, but there’s no harm in mixing things up every now and again is there? I loved the idea behind this because of the thought of doing something a bit different and also the creative side behind it of trying to think of fun and exciting things to do that start with each letter!
