Behind The Blog: Get To Know Jade Marie | Q&A

Lately I’ve been a bit too busy with uni work and deadlines to actually sit down and write a blog post. I’ve been saying I need to get something up, even if its just a short post but I wasn’t really sure what to write about as all of my planned content is pretty long. Enter the old stand by- a question and answer post! I’ve never actually done one of these before so I decided to ask on twitter for some questions to answer; queue the cricket noises. I’ve seen people doing these in the past  ...

How I Got Over 1,000 Views On My Blog This Month

So this month my blog has had nearly 1,500 views; I can’t believe I’ve actually just typed that! Sure it was a goal for this year to increase my views, but I never thought I would actually hit 1000 this year. I made the move to self hosted back in January and I can honestly say it was the best thing I’ve done for my blog. Before I moved over I was averaging on around 160/200 views a month and no matter how much promotion I did, I couldn’t get that number to rise. Before going self hosted I  ...

Caring For A New Piercing And Tips Before You Get One

So I finally did what I’ve been saying I want to do for years- I got my nose pierced! I also got my Helix (top of the ear) done at the same time as my piercer has a 2 for £20 deal on at the moment and it would have cost £15 just for one! We originally went up so that my mum could get both her Daiths pierced. I asked if they worked in my Goodbye September post and a lot of people said it had worked for them so she decided to give it a try. For those of you who aren’t piercing savvy, it’s the  ...

Goodbye September, Hello October! Monthly Roundup

It’s that time again where I write down how I can’t believe how fast this months gone by. But seriously time, maybe think about slowing down a little? It’s now just 49 days until I turn 24! Also just 49 days until I go back to Harry Potter World so I can’t complain too much really: I’ll be able to use all my birthday money on as much Slytherin merch as possible and apparently I’ll even get to open up the doors to the Great Hall because it’s my birthday- if that’s true I can promise you I  ...

Lush Cosmetics Giveaway

So this is it, I’m running my first ever give away! This is just a really quick post to let you know all the rules and such that I won’t be able to fit in the pinned tweet. Not going to lie I was going to buy a shit ton of Harry Potter merchandise since this is going live on the 1st September, but I couldn’t find enough House neutral items. Getting pretty sick of the Gryffindor bias. So instead I decided to pick up a selection of Lush products. Not just any products- these  ...

Life Update- August 2017 Roundup

If you’ve been with my blog from the beginning, you might remember waaaay back when I used to do a goals and dear diary style post every month. I kind of fell out of love with them, especially the goals part, so I stopped writing them. Well today I’m bringing them back…kind of! I’ve been thinking about doing a weekly roundup post for a while now (either on my blog or as a separate newsletter) but I quickly realised I might not have the time to do one  ...

Little Life Update: Why I Took a Break From The Internet

So as you may have noticed, I’ve been pretty much absent from both my blog and social media over the past two weeks. There are a couple of reasons why and I thought I’d take this time to give you all a little life update and explain my absence at the same time. Two birds, one stone. So first up- I’ve got my theory test coming up next week! I’m absolutely terrified that I won’t pass first time but I’ve passed all of the practice tests I’ve taken for  ...

All About Self Love Tag

I’m not usually one for doing tags, I think the last one I did was the Harry Potter one that was floating around when I first started out. However when Nicole tagged me in her post I thought it was a great idea to try and spread more self love and I couldn’t resist joining in too! It’s something I really struggle with, I hate the way I look and I hate how much my mental health problems limit me (as much as I try and not let that happen). I’m my own worst enemy really  ...

My Must Read Summer Book List

I’m not a fan of summer. I am so much more of an autumn/winter kind of gal. I can’t cope with the heat, it makes my asthma so bad that I’m basically just stuck laid in bed with the fan on full blast just so I can breathe! Not only that but if I do manage to venture outside, I burn to a crisp the second the sun touches my skin. Pale girl for life. One thing I do love doing in the summer (okay any season really) is curling up and reading a good book. In winter its all about curling up in my  ...
