I’m sure, most people who read this blog are bloggers too so I know you’ll understand when I say, “GIRL, I AM STUCK IN A RUT.” Every now & then throughout the year I find myself really struggling for content. My mind closes up on me and says “Not today Bee. Not today.” meaning no amount of word vomiting can create a coherent blog post. Except, I know I’m word vomiting now about not being able to word vomit. Sorry, did I just “inception” you right there? We’ve all been there. Some weeks I could create content for days and have scheduled posts ready and raring to go at every turn, except recently I’ve hit my half-yearly slump.

I want to completely overhaul my bedroom at the moment. Scratch that, I want to overhaul my whole house. With the likes of pinterest I am constantly lusting after aesthetically pleasing, minimalistic, black and white living. I decided that I need to start creating a little bit inspiration for myself and where better to do that, than on my blog. Am I right? I adore the muted tones of grey and whilst a rather dull colour it can lift the starkness of a white room. I think I would maybe I’d add a pop of colour to break it up too!

Growing up we are always finding ways to fit in, be the best and generally muddling through our teenage lives without trying (but failing) to F up everything. I’ve spoken on here before about how my teenage years were riddled with confusion. One minute I’d find my tribe and the next I wasn’t welcome. It was hard. I’m confident, not scared to stand up for what I believe in, yet I’m plagued with worrying about the aftermath of that. As I’ve grown older I’ve found my voice a little bit more and the best way to use it, funnily enough, this blog is where I let my creative juices flow. Whilst I do wish I had certain things - “Hello, lottery win, where are ya?” I’ve managed to carve something of a life that I can feel content with. I’ve got a whistle stop tour of how you can create a more chilled out, stress-free, content life for yourself.

GALS. Listen up. I don’t know about you, but I love a good pair of shoes. Finding that perfect fit is brilliant and don’t get me started on handbags. I’m easily pleased. However, there is one thing that get’s me even more giddy and that’s finding a pair of sunglasses that match my face shape. I really struggle and I mean REALLY struggle. I have long struggled to find a pair of shades that suit my pea-head face and I believe I have found them in the form of the Erika Raybans in the #SGSFaceShape challenge. (I wish I looked cool in the Aviators!) DO YOU SEE HOW HAPPY I AM? And do you know what is even better? The Sunglasses Shop is offering one of you lucky lot the chance to win a trip to NYC. The Big bloody Apple.

In today’s post I’m referring to the small successes we are greeted with in life. Of course, big events can comes with an amazing sense of achievement but there is also something quite euphoric about the small glories we make throughout our life. For me there have been many moments like this. People could look at them and think nothing of it, “what on earth could you feel ecstatic about that for?” – you know the one’s, resigned to doom and gloom. I adore championing people when they’ve accomplished something they are particularly proud of, big or small. I also feel it should be something that others try and take on board, too. Wouldn’t the world be a nicer place if we all did this from time to time?

When I see a charitable campaign, it’s often I find myself wishing I could do more. I just don’t always know how. On this blog I’m an advocate for striving to be who you are and making positive changes if you require them within your life. That’s where the #TogetherWeCan campaign with The Princes Trust fits in so well. They really believe all young people have the potential to change their path in life, be it education, a career path or just creating a better life for themselves after a painful start in the world! And they’ve been doing it for 40 years now.

It’s the 1st of August which means one thing & one thing only. IT’S YORKSHIRE DAY BISHES! I’m a proud Notherner and always have been, but I’m even more prouder that I have been born and bred in the most picturesque County of them all, Yorkshire. Bed Guru asked me to get snapping with a brand new Instax Polaroid to capture some of my favourite spots in & around Yorkshire so this last week I’ve been a busy Bee collecting some perfect polaroids for the #MyYorkshirePhoto campaign!
