Wanna make this year a success? Here are my ideas!
The great thing about the new year is that feeling of a clean slate. This is the time when we tend to be more optimistic and open to making positive changes in our lives. I don’t know about you but general day to day living can occupy my mind leaving little space for my dreams and ambitions. So, I’m taking advantage of this positive time with these tips for success in 2018. View Post
It’s about planting seeds for a long career…
Blogging is a hot topic. People ask me questions all the time, mainly about how to earn money.
It’s one thing to get some followers on instagram. But if you want to make a career from this (and one with longevity) then it’s useful to make a plan. The bloggers who are big now started 5-10 years ago when things were much easier. Now the rules have changed and it’s harder than ever to cut through the noise and get noticed. I have a personal list of blogging do’s and don’ts – and it’s the don’ts that are most important.
It’s been about 6 years since I went freelance and whilst it has it’s up’s and downs the overall experience has been positive. Previously I was working full time for a salon in London as a colourist. Then I set up a company with my boyfriend in Germany as we were preparing to launch our brand, Intensae nail lacquer. I combined working on the start-up with freelance jobs for a haircare brand to ensure the rent got paid each month. View Post

I received so much positive feedback from my recent post on confidence, how blogging is shaping me as a person. The inspiration to write that post suddenly came to me and I quickly wrote down everything I was feeling at that moment. In this sometimes materialistic world it’s nice to throw a bit of heartfelt realness amongst the perfectly staged ‘real lives’ we often put out. Thank you to everyone who took the time to leave a comment, it warms my heart : )
Today I thought it would be fun to share some things I have learned along the way so far. View Post
