We have all been there. That inevitable stage in your blog’s life when you hit a wall and just don’t know where to go. No matter how many beauty products you have in your stash, you just cannot find the inspiration anywhere to start typing. You’re completely uninspired and stuck in a horrible rut. It isn’t a great place to be, but I promise you can get yourself out of it! View Post
With all the drama surrounding Instagram at the moment, everyone seems to be sharing their top tips for when it comes to improving your following/theme/engagement/clicks… and the list goes on! While I don’t have a magic bullet for any of those things, what I do have is an app suggestion that will change your ‘gram game. It is an app that strangely nobody really mentions in their ‘top five photo editing apps’ posts, as it is actually insane! It is basically like having a simplified (but still amazing) version of photoshop on your phone. Introducing Snapseed. View Post
I still blog as a hobby, enjoying it as much as I did when I first started. However, as the blogging environment shifts towards exposure and followers, we can’t help but be swept up in it all. I admit that that isn’t the main aim of my blog as like I said, I do it as a hobby, but factors like SEO do come into play. We all want more people to read our content, so anything that can help make that easier is a bonus. That’s where the Yoast WordPress plugin comes in. View Post
Admittedly when I first started on the blogging scene I didn’t have a clue. I didn’t have a clue about how to write a blog post, let alone take pictures for one! But we all have to start somewhere, and after reading lots of other blogs I soon got the inspiration to give it a try for myself. After a three years of gradual improvement, I can finally say that I am happy with where my blog is at – both written and visual wise. So I thought I would share with you a few of my top tips for product photography, that I have learnt over the past few years. This is only a flash guide, so hopefully it helps you in some way!

Three years ago I was in my second year of university, and seemed to have all the time in the world to write blog posts. I think at one point I had a new blog post going live every day, which when I think about it now, is absolutely crazy! At the time I really enjoyed having so much free time and being able to fill it with blogging. The whole process of reviewing my favourite beauty products, photographing them and then writing it all up was something I loved doing. Not once did it start feeling like a chore. I had my blog schedule and routine and liked sticking to it.
