Last year I tried my hand at daily diary posts and felt they took over a predominantly beauty blog with non beauty stuff. I promptly created a new space for those posts and abandoned it after 6 months. It’s still there if I want it but for now.. I don’t, haha. This year I thought I’d try something different, a weekly round up of those bits and pieces I may have put in those DD posts or some other such random ramblings that didn’t make it in to another post that week. I’ve never done a ‘week in instagram’ type post but they seem popular so I may throw in a few of those here and there – I did look to IG for the picture for this post, you may have noticed. Mondays post could be absolutely anything so ideas on a postcard if you have any.
I chose Monday because it’s actually my favourite day of the week, it can get a bit manic over the weekend and I look forward to my monday morning escape. Not this particular Monday however because Milo was up at the crack of dawn and I’ve been fighting the urge to fall asleep at my computer all day but y’know.. usually. I stole the name for the series (though you know me, I may get bored and change it part way through) from one of my favourites, The Mamas & Papas – listen here if you don’t already know it.. also, HOW??
Today seems extra fitting to be posting a special something because I just noticed that I hit 10,000 followers over on Bloglovin – follow here if you don’t already – That’s a big deal for me. I use Bloglovin as a meter of how I’m doing because I think it’s more in touch with my readers than a page of stats/analytics. People choose what they like and you can see what’d popular right now, I always get a little buzz when I find one of my own posts in that section. It’s more important after all what you actually enjoy reading than the random people who find me because of popular keywords, I so appreciate the comments and feedback you leave me. I don’t get back to enough of you but I will try to remedy that this year.
That’s going to be it for today, oh apart from to say that I am absolutely OBSESSED with Scandal which is what I’m off to watch now.. I’m turning off my laptop to watch it on the sofa with my husband now the kids are in bed.. check me out taking my down time, New Years resolution 1. CHECK!
