If you could turn back time..

Sep 9, 2014


If you could turn back time, what would you change about your life?

My answer: I'd want to go back to the first 5 years of my life and see it through an adult's eyes as opposed to a child's eyes.

What about you?

Vanilla Chocolate Milkshake

Sep 4, 2014


One of the awesome things I get to do at my work is regularly re-live my childhood.

It was a sticky humid day and all we wanted was something cool to quench our thirst (and sweet tooth of course).

Enter the milkshake..

Ingredients
  • 2 scoops vanilla ice cream
  • chocolate syrup
  • sprinkles (optional)

Put the ice cream scoops and as much chocolate syrup as you like into a blender. Blend until smooth. Pour in a cup, add sprinkles.

Yum!

25 Ways To Beat Bloggers Block

Aug 29, 2014


It's confession time..

I have been suffering from bloggers block for the last year.

It came out of nowhere, when everything was running perfectly and my little blog was gaining a lot of momentum. All of a sudden I didn't know what to write, I tried and I tried but no matter what I did I turned into a little rebellious teenager and ran away from the computer!

I'd procrastinate and switch topics constantly. I believed that if I just got 'clarity' I'd be able to write again. I got tons of clarity and still convinced myself that it wasn't perfect. I went round and round in circles but I still persisted - which is kind of the main point here.

I'm not saying it's easy or it'll only last a little while, but as long as you persist and never freakin' give up, the clouds will clear and you'll be on your way again.

If you're seriously stuck, use these ideas to help you beat it!

  1. Write a how-to post.
  2. Write a letter to your younger self.
  3. Re-write and improve upon one of your most popular posts.
  4. Take stock & add your pictures.
  5. Share something that scares you.
  6. Write a letter to your future child(ren).
  7. Start vlogging instead.
  8. Create a new regular column or feature.
  9. Create a character and write a story around them.
  10. Start your bucket list.
  11. Write about something you're insanely passionate about.
  12. Set a timer for 10 minutes and just start writing!
  13. Write a post about someone you idolise.
  14. Make a list of your favourite blog posts.
  15. Write about an upcoming event you're excited for.
  16. Write a top 10 list of your favourite beauty products, dresses, bloggers etc.
  17. Share a secret about yourself.
  18. Interview a blogger you admire.
  19. Just write 75 words.
  20. Ask your best friends and family for ideas.
  21. Write about what you were like as a child/teenager.
  22. Tell a fiction story, fairytale etc.
  23. Write about your favourite memory.
  24. Tell us what you’re grateful for.
  25. Never ever give up!

Are you going through bloggers block right now? How are you planning to kick it's ass?
