A BIG Thank You! 50+ Followers


Today had been a pretty tough day: I had double Geography (including test results and controlled assessment), followed by THREE maths mock exam papers. Although I am quite strong at maths and enjoy it, this was not necessarily what I wanted to be doing on a Friday of all days.

I quickly looked at my WordPress on my way out of school after my final exam – and there it was: 50 followers! 😄😮🎉 It made me realise how far I have come since my first blog post. Bear in mind, this was only written in June!

Thank you so much to every single one of my followers – your support means everything and I love how I have been welcomed into the blogging community with truly open arms. 😄 I have to say that this day has truly been sneaking up on me, it was such a LOVELY surprise to discover that so many people with their blogs, all over the world, have decided to follow my ramblings on my blog 😀 It has truly made my day, so thank you again to all! ❤️🎉🎉

I love reading all of your blogs and interacting on those as well – you are all truly talented. It always makes my day to read your beautiful posts, to become friends with you, and indeed, learn from your blogs. Thank you to anyone who has tagged me to do challenges and nominated me for awards, it makes me feel truly appreciated. ❤️

Thank you for everyone who attended Steph J‘s Fall Feeling Party on her blog. It was an excellent experience for me, and I’m sure you’ll all agree it has helped us all to find each other and integrate into the community here! 🙂 I think I speak for us all when I say we look forward to the Christmas party! 🎄🎅🎉😄

I would like all of my followers to get to know each other because there are some truly talented people behind the blogs that follow my own. Please check out all of these blogs if you haven’t already, they are AWESOME! 💪I’m going to give you all shoutouts below, followed by a little announcement:

Anyway, thank you all again! I look forward to continuing to make you all smile 😀





Saturday Shoutouts #1

Hey, guys!

Today’s blog is going to be about some of my favourite blogs recently, and some of my favourite posts of theirs! I’m going to keep this as short as possible, but these guys really deserve some love for their amazing blogs! 🙂 ❤

1. SerendipiDIY aka Laura

Laura honestly has one of the most amazing blogs I’ve ever seen! 😍 She posts regularly, her DIYs are always so perfect, she posts in Italian AND English (bilingual!) and she is super friendly and nice! She recently got 100 follows and I’m so proud of her, as she is relatively new to the blogging world, just 20 days of blogging! 🙂 Her DIYs are so simply laid out, yet so effective, and she is so talented in her art! ❤ 😍

Here are some of my favourite posts from SerendipiDIY:

DIY Baked Sharpie Plates – These turned out so beautifully, and it just makes me want to be that creative and artistic!

DIY Chalk Paint Heart Candle Holder – This is just so pretty and I want to make it so much and just light so many candles. So perfect for this time of year! ❤

DIY Cork Board Calendar – This is such a simple DIY, yet so effective and can be made really personal. Like Laura says, it can literally take 10 minutes to do and it would still turn out really well. I really need one of these to keep track of exams and revision!
