What I Love About Fall – Day 4

Day 4!!

Today I’ll be talking about what I love about fall, here’s my top 10 things I love about it!

1) The Fall Look

I love the trees and the leaves, there is nothing better than going for a walk in the park on a nice fall morning and looking at all the leaves that have changed to beautiful colours and watching them fall from the trees!! It so amazing and one of my favourite things ever.! The best pictures can be taken, its great and is my favourite thing about fall!

2) It’s getting cold..

Cold weather is my all time favourite, I love it so much. I’m definitely more excited this year because of the killer weather we had all summer!. It’s still not that cold but I cant wait to layer my clothes and wrap myself in 20 different blankets, it’ll be so amazing!!.

3) Clothes

I love wearing warm jumpers, hats and scarfs, I’m literally obsessed with them all! But my most favourite of all is layering my clothes, I think it is the best thing ever and just looks so good. No matter what they always look so good!. Also boots they look so amazing and who doesn’t wear boots during fall?

4) Warm drinks

There is nothing better than making a warm drink and sitting down with a book and a blanket at the fire. Me personally I don’t drink hot drinks unless I’m cold so I look forward to that!.

5) Walks

What is better than cold weather? walks in cold weather! Either really late at night or really early in the morning is my favourite because that’s when it’s really cold. At night has to be my favourite though because after a long day you can just wrap up, grab the dog and walk around in the lovely fresh air, it’s so amazing!

6) Halloween

I am not a huge Halloween fan but this year my niece is going to be 15 months and I can’t wait to see her dressed up and go trick or treating with her because I lost the excitement of Halloween a few years ago but now i have it to look forward to because i get to experience it with my favourite little girl!.

7) Pumpkin’s

I love craving pumpkins so much and that’s something I really look forward to during fall time! I cant wait to do it this year!!

8) Winter is coming

It’s fall now which means winter is close and I just love winter sooo much, so people might hate me for this but Christmas is coming…!!

9) Halloween Movies..

love love love some Halloween movies.. but I’ve got a post coming on that later!

10) Disney

I would love to visit Disneyland/world during this time because it looks amazing and I just love looking through pictures and seeing what it looks like and all that!

See you tomorrow,

1) How To Be A Bawse by Lilly Singh

I have been dying to read this since it came out. I’ve seen so much about it and it’s always been good and positive feedback which is what makes me want to read it more! So it is definitely top of the list!

2) Note To Self by Connor Franta

Another book that has been on my list for a long time and I just never got around to buying and reading it.

3) Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan

This is only now getting made into a movie and I saw the trailer as soon as I did I knew I just had to read the book.

I just love John Green and hope to someday I will finish all his books!

6) Love, Simon by Becky Albertalli

It has such a good storyline and I have a feeling it will be a good read.

7) The Summer We Fell by Amber Garza

Don’t know much about this but it was recommended to me and I’m sure it has a great story line!

8) Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

As far as I know the Love, Simon movie is based on this book so I’d love to hear the ordinal story and see what they changed and how they made it into Love, Simon!

9) Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple

Another recommendation that I don’t know much about but it seems super interesting.

10) The Skin Nerd by Jennifer Rock

11) To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

Feel in love with the movie so now I need to read the book!!.

12) The Importance Of Being Aisling by Emer Mclysaght & Sarah Breen

I’ve seen this floating around recently and I’m dying to know what it’s all about!

13) The Confidence Kit by Caroline Foran

I lack confidences and think it looks like a great book to read!

14) 21 Lessons For The 21st Century by Yuval Noah Breen

This book looks so interesting and I really need to read it!

15) The Little Coffee Shop Of Kabul by Deborah Rodriguez

I’ve seen this everywhere and it was recommended multiple times so it must be a good read!

16) An American Marriage by Tayari Jones

Yet another recommendation that I can’t wait i check out.

17) The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory

As far as I know this is an old one but I was told it was good so it was added to the list!

18) The Pisces by Melissa Broder

This is only new and the book cover looks amazing and I think the book itself will be too!

19) Vampire Diaries by L.J. Smith

I finished book one and I’m currently on number two so I’d love to finish the whole set!

20) Billy and Me by Giovanna Fletcher

My sister loves McFly and of course this is written by Tom’s wife!, my sister gave me a loan of this book to read it because she reads her books and thinks they are great!.

What’s a book you are dying to read?

October Goals – Day 2

Welcome to day 2 of blogtober, today I’m going to be talking about my new goals for this month. It was only in August I started to set monthly goals and I’m already stopping and here’s why.

Dont get me wrong I think its great people set goals for every month and do all they can to achieve their goals and people do amazing at them every month but it’s not for me. I do have goals I want to achieve but I want them to be things I can build up on and not all about numbers. Most goals people set are to hit a certain following by the end of the month on their blogs or social medias and I just don’t really want to focus on that. My goals are to better my self and this is a goal I’m always going to have and possibly might never fully achieve it.

There is only 3 months left of this year and I want to take this time to make myself better, I want to be healthier, work on my confidence and just concentrate on my work so I can go into a new year with the right happy mind-set and be ready to enjoy the new year. I’m choosing these as my goals instead of saying i want to hit 1,000 on Instagram or whatever because i feel that when you set that goal it’s all you think about and at the end of the day its a number and if we keep focusing on numbers we’ll never get anywhere. Instead of bettering my following i want to better myself. This was a short post today but an exciting one is coming tomorrow!

Back to Home School

It’s back to school time, who’s excited?, Today’s post is a back to school one since everyone is getting ready to go back or already back. Most people don’t know but I am home schooled and have been since January 2017, anyone that I do tell always has a million questions so I thought I’d do a blog post on it!

Little back story, why I’m home schooled, I wasn’t always home schooled I completed nearly 3 years of secondary school along with years before that, but I was total unhappy with my school and the people, don’t get me wrong I had no problems with the work i loved it, i loved being busy but the people in my school would drain the life out of you, plus around this time i was going to hospitals and doctors trying to figure out what was wrong with me and what my pains were ( if you don’t know you can read about my pains here ) but my teachers, principal along with the students would literally judge me for missing school and anytime I gave them a note they would play a game of 21 question because they thought I was faking it and making it up, my principals once sat and compared me to other girls in my school saying oh well this girl has this wrong with her and she still goes and does this, they knew nothing about my illness or what pain I went through so they can’t sit there and tell me someone else has it worst than me, do you really think from the age of 12 i wanted to spend most my days, in hospital or bed and have to give up my sports which i loved very much because of pain? Anyways i said this to my parents and i looked up schooling options and they both agreed and thought it was best for me. At this point I’m already having the idea to start a blog, so in January my Mam said from then till June i will continue to study and get my exams done and then we’ll go straight into your blog which we did. The next year came around 4th year which is optional and you don’t really do much, my mam said how about another year of blogging so you can figure out if you want to just stick and grow your blog or go back and finish your final years in school, my mam kept saying you want blogging to be your career so why not invest in that now and help it if that’s what you are set on doing.

So thing year is going to be a little different, im going to be working on my blog and social media presence so much, aswell as making a portfolio to go do a full-time business course in college I want to do next year so my subjects this year are blogging and business along with a few others, I choose to do Maths, English, Irish and Spanish too, which I’m so happy with, along with that this year I will be doing different part-time courses for my portfolio and get me back into a school routine, they are all business and social media related. It’s less stressful and i get to work in a space I’m comfortable with and i also get to plan out my day, what i want / have to do and it definitely decreases my anxiety for trying to get loads of stuff done, because unlike a busy and set school day, my schedule can be changed around on days i have places to go or other stuff to do, it isn’t just a normal timetable i have to follow daily. Homeschooling / working from home is definitely less stressful, you don’t have people all around you messing and talking so you can sit, concentrate and get your work that you need done without a million different distractions. I definitely get a lot more work done now.

Basically the reason behind me being home schooled was mostly my blog I wanted to make a career out of it and start as soon as i could and my parents supported that, it was also my pains and my school but mostly for my blog, which i know some parents wouldn’t do but my did and I’m so happy they did and i want to show them they made the right choice.

I’m going to do a home school Q&A so if you have questions comment or tweet me them to me.

Tips for new bloggers

Happy Sunday, so I didn’t plan on writing or posting this post today, this was meant to go up on Wednesday but I did a poll on twitter and this got the most votes so I’m writing this one! Sorry it’s up so late it was meant to go up earlier, I scheduled it to go up at 6 but it just didn’t post! But anyways let get into the post!☺️

So I’m fairly new to blogging, I started about a year ago but was barley doing it, just posting randomly and whenever I wanted, I didn’t plan things out or do it on a regular basis but I have learned a few things over the year I’ve had my blog.

1. Write about the right things

When I say that I mean write about things you like or are passionate about, also make sure you’ve the right information and understand the things you talk about because it really shows in your writing and people can clearly see if you aren’t interested in what you are talking about, so I highly recommend only talking about things you’ve strong opinions about or things you’ve an interest in because I think writing about things you like really improves your writing!

2. Don’t worry about others opinions

I definitely worried so much at the start of my blogging journey, I was scared what everyone around me would think and it held me back from blogging a lot which I now regret and hate that I let it bother me and held me back! As soon as I stopped caring about others opinions I felt better about myself and my blog got better which was great!

3. Use Twitter!

Honestly I didn’t know what I was missing out on with twitter! It is such a good way to promote your blog and discover others! Plus you can get to know so many people who are bloggers too and they are all literally the nicest and most supportive people you’ll ever met and they will without a doubt motivate you do continue blogging!

4. Just keep going.

This was another big problem with me at the start of my blogging journey I didn’t get views/likes/ comments and it felt like I was putting in so much effort for nothing! But trust me if you keep at it and post regularly you will get to a point where you get likes/views/comments and see the work you do is worth it! The more work you put in the better results you’ll get and trust me reading the comments and seeing the views and that people read what you write is the best feeling in the world.

5. Communicate with your following

Make sure you answer comments and talk with your following on your blog and social media and also communicate with other bloggers like I said, follow them, comments on their stuff, give them a reason to check out your blog and see what your doing and keep up to date with you like you do with them!

6. Plan.

To me, this is the most important planning everything out! From posts to pictures, knowing what you are doing every time you get ready to sit down and type is great and every time you take your camera out knowing what you are talking photos off and knowing ahead of time gives you that day to plan out ideas and the way you want it! Also a big tip that I use all the time is always be one step ahead, always have your next post in your mind or wrote and ready to go because it saves the stress of trying to think of things on the spot, usually I write a big list of ideas and when I go to write I pick whatever one I want! Lists are important!

7. Numbers.

DON’T STRESS ABOUT NUMBERS!! It’s the worse thing you can do and it’ll just make you doubt yourself which you shouldn’t, so forget the numbers and worry about what you are doing.

8. Comparing yourself.

Please, please, please don’t compare yourself to other blogs/bloggers, you are all different and you should embrace that, comparing yourself will do nothing only bring you down and make you unmotivated! PLEASE DONT COMPARE YOURSELF TO OTHERS !!

That’s it, just always remember to be yourself and do things how you want and not to please others, also be patient, your hard work will pay off more and more as you grow and I hope you learn from my mistakes!☺️

See you tomorrow!
