Taking A New, Healthier Perspective On Fitness

 

It’s critically important to remain as fit and healthy as you can be throughout the course of your life. Of course, you’re never going to be 100% in shape at all times. But that doesn’t mean living in an unhealthy manner is an excuse. Of course, you’re not going to be punished by exercising your free will and forgoing exercise while eating poorly, at least not by anyone else. But you will be the one to suffer, slowly gaining weight and feeling less confident in yourself. But this can and does happen to people, and it can make them feel less and less confident and comfortable in themselves.


This is quite a sad prospect to consider. Surely, there are ways of taking a new, healthier perspective on fitness, perhaps a mindset that will help getting in shape seem less of a mountainous chore and more of a stimulating, exciting challenge to take part in? To us, that’s perfectly possible.

Let us help you out:

How To: Create 14 Blog Articles in 1 Day – Start to Finish [Blogger Broadcast]




You might be wondering how you can pre-prepare content and schedule months in advance so you’re never behind on a post...


The answer to this is to keep on top of everything and be efficient with your time. I have a few tips and tricks that help me pump out five to seven articles a week and have a minimum of sixty posts ready to go at any given time. When you think about it, there is a lot that goes into blogging: brainstorming ideas, gathering products, taking photos, editing photos, writing posts, publishing and scheduling social media promotion, etc.
The good news is that this is a process that can be streamlined to be much more time efficient, and therefore allow you to achieve more. Try to create multiple posts at once by spending time on each of the steps for a few articles rather than running through that entire process each time you want to put a post live. You can take a day to focus on blogging to create anywhere between one and two weeks’ worth of content by following this process.

Books I’ve Read Lately #9 - 40 in 2019

This year so far has been AMAZING in terms of books! I have found some absolute favourites already so I can’t wait to tell you all about them. 


Something I recently realised was that most books have one key message – any easy bite sized take away that encapsulates the true meaning of the book. It’s the one concept that is explained over and over using different examples and ways of describing the same key advice.

Because this is the first instalment of this series for my 2019 reading list, I thought I would shake things up a little and this year I will be including details of every book’s main message, key takeaways and sharing how I rate the book.

It’s also incredibly valuable for me to reflect upon each book I read because it not only refreshes my memory or allows the message to seriously sink in but it’s also a great reference point for me to re-visit in the future.

Must Have Valentine’s Day Accessories

With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, you might find yourself with plans for a romantic date or dinner reservations. 


So naturally your next train of thought is what to wear, given that it’s a special occasion and any excuse to dress up will do.

I have spent some time pulling together my top 4 accessory essentials for the most romantic day of the year, making a chic statement regardless of the outfit you decide on.

I also thought it would be a cool way to tell you about some designer pieces I have added to my wardrobe in an effort to start building a strong collection of high end and quality pieces. I want to start focussing on investing in designer pieces that I know are built to last rather than having a high turnover in my wardrobe from semi quality pieces. I will explain this in a future post, as well as my detailed plans on how I will build out my high end capsule wardrobe, but for now I have a new bag and pair of shoes to discuss further in this post.

YSL Kate Tassel Logo Bag 
As an avid Louis Vuitton fan for a number of years now, my swap in loyalty of brands has been quite a daring one. I love how indestructible a LV canvas bag is and how you can throw it around but when I went to invest in a new one, nothing jumped out at me. I feel the chic and timeless look of a YSL bag speaks more to my personality now and recently adding this versatile piece to my collection was a worthwhile investment. It’s the perfect in-between of a day bag and night clutch – big enough to fit all the essentials but not too large that you will overpack it. Overly big bags are where I went wrong with LV – think a Neverfull and a Speedy 30 – they allowed me to carry around way too many unnecessary items. The classic pairing of black leather and gold decals makes this a stunning piece.

MAC Ruby Woo 
We love a good red lipstick moment on Valentine’s Day and this cult classic MAC bullet is kiss proof. It’s a creamy rich red that suits the most skin tones and has a blue undertone to bring out the white in your teeth. It’s a matte finish so the colour is opaque but stays put. This has been my go-to red for years and I think it is highly worth the investment next time you’re picking up some goodies at the MAC counter.

Christian Louboutin So Kate 
I have had one pair of Loubs in my life before and recently sold them because they had never fit correctly. I blindly bought them second hand so got a size 39 and they were a good size or two too large that no gel pads could fix. So, I never ended up wearing them for long because I was always padding around falling out of my shoes. This time I made sure not to repeat my mistake, investing in a brand-new pair for size 37 120mm So Kate’s. I also opted for nude this time instead of black because I feel a killer pair of high-quality nude heels is ESSENTIAL for a capsule wardrobe. I’m so glad I made this investment into a pair of shoes I know will last my years and years, suiting nearly everything in my wardrobe. You can’t go past these to complete your outfit on an occasion like Valentine’s Day!

Pandora Linked Love Ring 
Bring a subtle hint of love and romance to your accessories with this heart link ring. There is something so feminine about this dainty stacking ring and the rose gold adds warmth and sparkle to the look.

Happy Valentine's Day lovers!

Why You Need a Blog Mission Statement + How To Write Yours





The same thing that makes you different from other people on the planet - your unique personality and approach - is the key differentiating factor between your blog and anyone else's. 


Just as you have a set of personal values and morals, your blog should follow suit and have an overarching set of principles and beliefs. As the saying goes "if you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything" and this is particularly true with hosting a creative platform.



As you will often be approached by brands, fellow creatives, lucrative opportunities and content ideas you must be able to identify whether it is right or wrong accept or reject these offers. It is important to achieve balance and I always ensure that each opportunity I take is in line with personal values and the moral compass of my platform. The easiest way to achieve this is to have a mission statement that anchors your platform and centres your content.
A mission statement is a short and concise sentence or two, which encapsulates what your blog is all about and the key objectives of your platform.
