[I’m going to start with the story of why I deleted my followers, but if you’d just like to read about the different websites and apps I used to do this and further monitor my account engagement then scroll down past this first chunky part] Why I Removed 90,000 Instagram Followers I’ve been self employed…… Continue reading Why I Deleted My Followers
It’s all getting very exciting! Only one week until the big day, trees are going up and the cupboards are slowly stocking up with food. Plans are hopefully coming together and Christmas shopping is on its way to being completed, finally! Unfortunately, though, Christmas (and any big celebration, really) tends to be a time of…… Continue reading Save Waste This Christmas
I was invited via the Southampton Bloggers gang to organise a meal out at Offbeet New Forest. This is their brand new venue at only five months old and it’s very different to their original Wickham location. The restaurant at Sunnyfields Farm is much bigger and serves up a totally different menu (and different cake!)…… Continue reading Offbeet New Forest: Give a Cluck
This Summer I had the absolute pleasure of a week away with my family to a beautiful, luxury resort in Tenerifé and I really made the most of it! It’s an adults only resort and I’d imagine it caters mostly towards romantic breaks but it’s also perfect for families with adult children – like ours!…… Continue reading Tenerifé: Iberostar Grand Salomé
I was born a fussy eater and stayed that way right through until my early twenties – it’s crazy to think I used to pretty much only go to Italian restaurants for dinner when, now, I would much rather chow down on a Mexican feast…or Indian, Thai, Japanese…I am so hungry as I write this.…… Continue reading Cocktails at Turtle Bay

Last Sunday I was invited to join the Southampton Bloggers gang at a cider tasting and food review event at The Stable in Southampton. Not only did I think this would be a fab chance to meet everyone and throw myself in at the deep end but the promise of pizza was just too much…… Continue reading Food: Cider Tasting at The Stable
Once you’ve shot your SG set, you will likely find yourself waiting a good few months until anyone can see it. This will also depend on the speed your photographer works at (hopefully you’ve been communicating about this so there are no unpleasant surprises or hold ups!) but once the set has been submitted, accepted…… Continue reading Get Your Set Noticed in Six Steps
Being self-employed is really hard. You might get to ‘be your own boss’ but only sort of, you still have clients and people you work for just instead of one ‘boss’ to impress, you have an indefinite amount. You may even get to set your own schedule but then, maybe not, as you need to…… Continue reading Being Self-Employed is Hard.
Perfectionism was something I always felt was used as a humble brag. In school, when they advised us for job interview techniques and that we’d likely be asked our negative traits, I was always told to turn that into a positive by saying ‘the only bad thing about me is that I’m a perfectionist’ and that…… Continue reading The Plight of The Perfectionist
