A Vision, A Dream, A Reality

4

You’ve all heard of vision boards… The board that you can make with all your dreams you want to come true.

Well I’ve been doing it a bit differently with this little beaut…


When I am chilling out on my bed and pinning on Pinterest like mad I decided why don’t I have a secret board of my visions in life so a few weeks ago I started it.

Today I decided to focus on my dream house if I was ever lucky enough to own / rent such a place and this is the 12 I chose out of the 50 odd that are on my board 🙈


I absolutely adore the colour pink so I would of course theme the house around my personality and that colour.

I couldn’t leave out the garden so I included that too.


Somewhere girly but also relaxing at the same time.
Whoever my other half was would have to accept my inner Elle Woods from Legally Blonde.

Apparently if you put your visions out there to the universe you shall have so there you go universe I would like this 🌸

Hope you’ve enjoyed reading.
Let me know if you have made vision boards/pages.

My Blogger must have essentials

0

We as bloggers love to experiment with different things on the market to see what will help us as creative writers and add a bit of pyzaz to it.

Well these are some of the things that I have purchased that I wouldn’t be without.

You can click on the coloured link and it’ll take you there. (not sponsored or paid in any way)


Living in England there’s only a little sun so when it goes in before you can get a good shot something else has to be that artificial light and this ring light is just perfect. Not bulky, not over big and can easily be tucked away. You can put your phone on it and record videos or take selfies too which is a great added feature.

RING LIGHT AND TRIPOD WITH SELFIE HOLDER

If you are out and about and want to throw a bit of light on your face when you’re taking a selfie a little ring light that you can attach to your phone for under a tenner is something not to miss. Easily charged by USB or power if you have a spare plug.

RECHARGEABLE RING LIGHT FOR PHONE

If you have been looking for the tripod that you can depend on then the Gorilla pod is the best one out there in my opinion. You can bend it any way and even wrap around the tree for hand’s free photos. This one is for your camera and is under £30.

GORILLA POD TRIPOD

Then of course there’s a smaller one you can put in your bag and put your phone on it. I believe its £10. Bloody bargain.

GORILLA MINI POD TRIPOD FOR PHONE

Well I have to say I don’t use my camera that often I prefer my phone as its more to hand. When I do use a camera I grab my Sony A6000 which has fab specs and well worth getting.

SONY A6000 INTERCHANGEABLE LENS DIGITAL CAMERA

For the last few months since my upgrade I can honestly say the Huawei P20 Pro is a bloggers phone indeed. The battery life is great, the 3 cameras in it has such quality and its super slim to fit into your pocket or bag.

HUAWEI P20 PRO 128GB

I wanted a laptop that wasn’t too cumbersome and that I could take with me on the go if needed, so when I stumbled across the Asus Transformer Book Mini it was exactly what I was after. With the detachable screen and the pen I just had to get it. It was on offer when I got it but its still affordable for a nifty piece of kit.

BOOK MINI 10.1

Not every blogger will need one but if you also like making videos/podcasts or voiceovers then a microphone like this one is the perfect addition to your blogging essentials.

I hope by sharing my faves it may give you food for thought – more like tech for thought.

Trying something new

0

Stepping out of your comfort zone and trying something you don’t usually do. Theres fun to be had trying something new. (That was a little glimpse of my poetic self)

I have always been into writing and not been the artistic type. I have decided to try my hand at being creative in the shape of making things i find on Pinterest. Get my craft on.

Of course I’ll share my successes and failures with you all. I will be spending the next week on Pinterest making a board to work through. Then I’ll be getting some supplies in from Hobbycraft and The Range.

You are never too old to have a hobby and it is always great to share your journey too.

Oh yes its Friday night

6

Hey Hey, its Friday.

I actually don’t mind staying in on a Friday night, or a Saturday come to think of it. I think as you get older you go past caring about going out on the razz every weekend.

I’m going to make my Friday night a nostalgic one. Cos i love memories i can look back on. So here’s my plans.

I’ve got 10 things i hate about you, cos who didn’t swoon over Heath singing your too good to be true can’t take my eyes off of you back in the 90s.

Then Billy Elliot, i love the how it’s full of controversy and it tells a wonderful story. Julie Walters is so funny in it too.

Finally Muriels Wedding. It’s such a classic and me and my friend Lou used to do the Waterloo dance in her living room until we had the moves to a T.

I found my diary from 10 years ago and i know this will be a banger to read as i remember the boyfriends and my clubbing days were quite something to write about so i look forward to reading that.

Then I’m gonna put a face mask on too just so i feel a bit more relaxed.

If i can’t sleep i may get started on my scrap book, i have only used 4 pages in it so far but really wanna make it something rather interesting to flip through when it’s finished.

What do you like doing on a Friday night?

Are you a stationery addict too?

4
  • Do you go into a supermarket and find yourself accidentally slipping into the stationery aisle and your eyes instantly lighting up?
  • Do you buy a pretty notepad just because, and a handful of cute pens too?
  • Do you try to justify to others why you needed those pink paperclips and a marble stapler even though you hardly ever have loose papers to put together?
  • Do you think you have enough to start a stationery shop?

Consider yourself a stationery addict

Please don’t be ashamed and know you are not alone, you definitely don’t need to give up this addiction. It’s one you can shout from the rooftops and be proud.

I’ve been one since I’ve been able to write so nearly 30 years. I cried when our local stationers shut. Just for the record, it wasn’t last week it was a fair few years ago.


What are your favourite stationery bits to buy?

That happy feeling

I may not be the best at photography and fancy flatlays . But one thing i am is passionate with my writing. Every word that’s written comes deep inside my heart. If i can inspire someone or make them smile then I’m a happy chappy.

They say do things in life that you enjoy and nothing feels better than helping someone whether it’s a bit of advice, something relatable or a funny story of mine that can cheer them up.

Just a short and sweet post

Don’t be afraid of change

13

I know I tell you don’t change for anyone… I still stand by that.

Today I want to talk about making a change for you, and not being afraid of it.

You need to have those special people around you. The ones that would be there for you in a drop of a hat and you vice versa. Not the ones that you’re just wishing had spare time for you.

Comparing yourself to others is the worst thing that you can do. You need to remember you were born this way and ain’t nobody gonna make you a sheep. Start loving wonderful you and love every tiny bit of your life.

You may not be where you want to be. The thing to do is to change the way you think and the way of life you live now and if you aren’t living a happy and fulfilling life then you need to get a plan of action going.

It’s always better to think of all the positive things happening in your life than the ones that are trying to get you down. Focus on the good and forget the bad..or tackle your problem head on to make a negative a positive.

Remember positive people lead positive lives.

Thanks for reading

Until next time…
