SUNDAY SHOUTOUT 02: Words With Kris

Yay! Sunday is shaping up to be one of my favourite days! I have had a lovely time looking through all of the links you guys posted on my last Sunday Shoutout submission post!

It was a hard decision this week because there were lots of wonderful blogs to choose from but there was something about this lady that made me want to stay a little longer and read a little more.

The lady in question is the lovely:

Words With Kris

Kris is clearly into dogs! As she has two of them in her ‘about me’ page. She is a self confessed introvert and is using her blog to find her voice, which I think is fabulous, because we all have something to say right?

Secret Secrets is the first post I read that got me really intrigued. It is an open deeply honest depiction of who she was and how she wants to change this! Honesty is a quality I think all bloggers should have. I also love the fact that Kris is using her platform to talk about Feminism, which is a very misunderstood political ideology. Feminism is about equality for both Sexes. So if you’re into equality you’ll love her blog!

It would make me so happy if you guys could go and check out some more of her posts and find out for yourself what she is all about! If you enjoy the way she writes as much as I do then give her a follow!

If you fancy being featured in one of my Sunday Shoutouts then look out for my submission posts every Wednesday! I am seeing all of your submissions so don’t feel disheartened if you didn’t get it this time!

Lots of Love

Sunday Shoutout- Post your blog link!

Hey folks!

It’s that time of the week again when I ask my lovely followers to post their link down below! I will choose one blog to dedicate a blog post to on Sunday! Hence ‘Sunday Shoutout’… This post will of course include a link to their blog, what they are about, and why I love what they do!

I think that the best way of doing this is by looking at the blogs of my followers who would like me to feature them on Sundays post! (Don’t want to be doing anything without permission here! 😅) Some of the entrants were not following me when I checked last week! This is something I’m doing for my followers only, so if you’re not following, I’m not going to choose you!

If you would like to be featured on Sunday please post your blog link in the comments!

I received lots of love and support when I started my blog, without it I would be far less motivated to post each day! So I feel like it’s important to encourage and motivate our peers in our blogging quests!

I’m looking forward to hopefully getting some links posted below! 😘 Check out some of the other links too! You might come across another blog you’re interested in! And of course if you’re new to my blog then please to hit that follow button!

Lots of Love

SUNDAY SHOUTOUT 01: The Key To Kayleigh

Hey everyone! This post marks the first of many, Sunday shoutouts!

After looking through all of the wonderful blogs to comment on my Original Post  I decided Kayleigh from TheKeyToKayleigh was the perfect candidate for my first shoutout!

The number one thing that caught my attention was the interesting blog name! Paired with the gorgeous banner I loved this blog from the start! It has a little bird on it, and I realised when reading her About Me Page she’s a bit of a bird nerd, so as you can tell everything about her blog is extremely personal and well thought out.

This lady is fascinating to say the least! She is 25 years young, and lives in the beautiful Cornwall, a place she adores! She is in love with animals and is currently studying her last year of applied zoology… you go gurl!

The way she writes is so open and honest, reading her posts makes you feel like you’re chatting to a friend! Not only that, but she is not afraid to get stuck in with the blogging community and share her thoughts on other blogs. I say time and time again, blogging is about the community. So if you want to know more (because I’m not giving away all the gossip!) head on over to Kayleigh’s blog and show her some love!

If you would like to be featured in the next Sunday Shoutout then comment your link down below and I will be sure to pay you a visit!

Lots of Love

NEW WEEKDAY THEMES 💋

I have been thinking more recently that it would be pretty cool if I could think of blog theme for each day of the week! That way, my readers and I will know what to expect each day! I feel that this will add more structure to my posts and make me better prepared to absolutely nail it with my daily posts!

So I thought I would share with you some themes that I will be introducing soon!

_________________________________________________

Monday’s blog post will now become Makeup Monday. I will share my makeup look of the day! I have been experimenting with more colour eyeshadow and eye liner techniques lately, so I will be sharing my looks and how I created them!

Wednesdays will be for reviewing anything I see fit! My main categories will be makeup and skincare products but I will also be throwing in the odd review of something different too!

There’s no prizes for guessing what this day will involve! I have been doing lots of LOOKBOOK posts so it only seemed logical to have a specific day for them! These will include my look of the day, where I got it and how happy I am with the look haha!

This is one of my most exciting new categories! Well it is for me anyway! I am planning to shout out a different blogger every Sunday! Of course it will be one of my lovely followers. I am going to create another post on Sunday with a little bit more detail so look out for that one if you want a shout out!

I’ve got to say folks, I am really happy with how this blog is starting to shape up!

I would love to hear your thoughts on the new themes! They will be slowly introduced over the coming weeks!
