FASHION FRIDAY 03: Tropical Sun ☀️

It is FRIDAY! Which means today’s blog post is all about…. FASHION!

If you have been following my blog you will know that I do not like the cold. I feel that is reflected in my attire as I never seem to be wearing anything even remotely warm 😂!

I may have fair skin, but I believe I was born for a warmer climate!

Because it’s been so gloomy, I can’t help but daydream about a holiday to Malaga a few years ago, where I wore this beautiful dress!

It’s just not the done thing to walk around the UK like this.

1: Because I would get pneumonia.

2. I would probably get some strange looks.

So I will stick to wearing these sorts of things for my fashion Friday posts until it becomes a little warmer!

I just love the colour of this dress and the tropical plants in the print! The bralette style bust compliments my body type along with the bodycon fit! If I do say so myself haha

I’m not sure I could handle two of me to be honest. My husband seems to think he would like two of me around the house 🙄 I wonder why!

This beaut dress is from one of my favourite online fashion brands Misguided who are sure to be pulling out some more bangers for your holiday this summer! Check them out if you haven’t, their clothes are amazing and affordable!

Hello March! Let’s talk about February!

It is a brand new Month! I would love to say it’s getting warmer here in the UK, but no! It’s actually snowing as I type this!

I’m thinking the start of each month is a good time to write a monthly review! Why? Because I feel that in order to improve my blog and life path, I need to periodically check in with myself to make sure I am making and hitting GOALS!

In terms of blogging, I had a brilliant month! I had around 500 views in January and I have managed to absolutely smash that amount with a total of over 3,000 in Feb 🤩! So thank you to every single one of you I guess!

These views were accumulated from nearly 1,000 visitors! I think this is a good thing, because it means that lots of people are sticking around and reading some of my other posts once they have read one!

My blogging goals for March are:

  • Hit 4,000 views.
  • Hit 1,300 visitors.
  • Hit 1,500 likes.
  • Receive 400 comments.
  • Gain 500 Followers

I am hopeful I will achieve these goals!

I know I keep saying this but I have been so pleasantly surprised by all the love and support I have received from my fellow bloggers! It really is such a wonderful community!

In terms of my Instagram account, I had a really bad month! Well the last week of it was the bad part! Basically I was working really hard on my account @loleihm and I was almost at 300 followers! Unfortunately I fell victim to instagrams illusive ‘shadow ban’

It took a lot of my energy and motivation to start over and make a new account! But I am now up to 80 followers in 4 days! Which is not a bad start at all! That account is @lollyhm.fashion if you’re an instagrammer!

I am going to be writing a blog post about the shadow ban at some point so you will have more information on what it is and how to prevent it happening!

In the coming month:

I really want to start seeing some major activity on both my Instagram and my blog, I am going to continue with my daily posts on both accounts. I started the journey, which is always the hardest part! So I’m looking forward to continuing my hard work and seeing even more fantastic results!

Thanks for sticking with me!

Lots of Love
