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  ...

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  ...

Not Everyone Enjoys Their Time At University

So this post is basically inspired by a tweet I saw from the lovely Sophie (PetalsOfPerfection) that said: Beyond excited to graduate… sorry but if anyone says to me that uni years are the best years of my life. YOU ARE WRONG. I couldn’t agree more! I’m so sick of hearing that your days at university are the best of your life, that it’s where you’ll meet your best friends for life and you’ll always wish you could go back. Because it’s just not true  ...

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  ...

Canon EOS M10 Review

Last month you may have noticed a slight change on my Instagram… my photos suddenly got a hell of a lot better! That’s because I decided to bite the bullet and finally buy myself a proper camera! I’d been wanting to get one since starting uni earlier in the year and having a photography module in the first semester. I’ve been doing photography since I was 17 but I’ve never had enough money to buy my own camera: I’d either borrow my dads old crappy one or  ...

Surviving University When You Have a Mental Health Condition

One of my teachers once said that I soak up knowledge like a sponge and in all fairness, she’s not far wrong! I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with education: I love learning but I’ve always hated the school environment. From the day I started school to the day I walked out of my final exam, I was bullied & it’s had a pretty big impact on the rest of my life. I’ve already covered that little sob story in this post here so I won’t go all that  ...

Weekly Roundup | 06.11.16

So not only is this post going out later than normal but it's also going to be a lot shorter too, I feel like I've really dropped the ball with my blog this week! I've been ill for most of this last week, hence the lack of blog and social media post so in a way I don't really have much to say in this weekly roundup, unless I bitch about how crap migraines and daytime TV are. Which for the record are really really crap!
