Weekly Roundup | 09.10.16

I’m sat here writing this running on three hours sleep so apologies if this post doesn’t make much sense, I’m not one of those girls who can function on less than 8 hours sleep!

So I’m having a little change on my blog from now on- I’m scrapping my Dear Diary formats. Not only did they not get as much engagement as my other posts but I didn’t really enjoy writing them. The name felt wrong and since my life isn’t particularly interesting I always felt like I was repeating myself and just boring everyone.

So instead I’ve decided to create a weekly roundup. Basically the idea is that if something interesting has happened in my life I’ll still talk about it like in the DD posts but I also want to start sharing links that I’ve found during the week. This could be blog posts I’ve loved, news articles I want to talk about or even links to freebies (because who doesn’t love free things?!).

Weekly Roundup 09.10.16

On Saturday I had my first ever sleepover! Yes i’m almost 23 and no I’d never had a person sleep over at my house before. Partly because my dads always been funny over it for some reason but also because I’ve never really had friends. I don’t say that for people to feel sorry for me, I was always perfectly happy on my own so it didn’t bother me- if anything I was happier on my own! However this last year or two I’ve found some absolutely awesome people and that has changed, I actually want to socialise, go out and do all the things that everyone else does.

So when Liz suggested we meet up, have a few drinks and a takeaway I took the oportunity to ask if she wanted to stay over. It ended up being a really great night watching Disney films and pigging out on McDonalds! The reason I’m only running on three hours sleep though is I just cannot sleep when theres someone else in the room with me- never have been able to! I’m hoping its one of those things that will stop being a problem if I do it often enough, like I said- I’m a girl who likes sleep!

Links I’m Loving

BLOG HOSTING REVIEW: HOW TO CHOOSE THE BEST WEB HOST FOR YOUR BLOG?– As someone who is looking to make the switch to self hosted I’ve found this post so helpful!

22 REASONS WHY BEING IN YOUR LATE TWENTIES IS BLOODY ACE– Okay so technically I’m not in my late 20’s but in all honesty, I might as well be! I’ve always felt like an adult trapped inside a kids body and this post not only makes me feel like the stuff I do is okay, but that its actually a really good thing! Thank you Hannah!

Five Life Changing Lessons I Learnt by My 25th Year– This post is so relatable! I do all of these things and I really do need to stop, they aren’t healthy for me or my mental health. Seeing someone as successful and awesome as Suzie saying she struggles with these things has made me realsie that it’s something we probably all do from time to time. We’re all human after all!

Blogging Tips & Blog Posts– Okay so I’m doing a little bit of self plugging here but its for a good reason! Pinterest is a great place to find new blog posts and I’ve been loving creating this board full of my favourite posts. I’m always pinning so if you’re looking for something new to read with a cuppa on a lazy Sunday morning I would definitely recommend having a browse!
