Taking A Little Break

Tomorrow I am jetting off to Tenerife for a week away with the girls and I couldn't be more excited. With my hours increasing at work and life getting pretty busy, I've found it hard to make time for blogging which made me feel really bad. Instead of getting stressed about having a million things to do, I've decided to take a week out of blogging to enjoy my holiday and start fresh when I get back. It feels like to right thing to do. I will still post pics on Instagram, but Twitter may be bit more quiet for the next week or so.

5 Tips to Help with Confidence

I've always found it difficult to be confident, and I don't believe that everyone is 100% confident all the time. We're human. Slowly but surely, my confidence has definitely grown, but I'm no way near perfect. There are things that I have to remind myself everyday in order to be more confident, and I'm happy to share them in a blog post today.

Why I Love Blogging

A while ago I wrote a post about how to stay inspired with blogging. One of the tips I mentioned was to think about why you love to blog. With whatever hobby/job you have, I think it's so important to be passionate about it, especially if it's something that involves being creative. The reasons to why I blog are simple, and some of them are more meaningful. I keep these in mind every time I'm planning a post, or when I'm thinking of new ideas.

Morphe Palette Collection

Morphe are well known for their brushes and huge selection of palettes available. From eyes to blush to contour, their selection is endless. The pigmentation is amazing and their colours are gorgeous, so bound to find the perfect palette for you. I thought I'd show you the palettes I have in my collection...

The palettes I have are the 35O Nature Glow Palette and the 35K Colour Koffee palette. They both have 35 shades and are £22.50 each. They are definitely worth the money because you get such a wide selection of colours for just over £20. They are both very pigmented and you can create an endless amount of looks with them.

The biggest difference between these palette is obviously the colours. The 35O palette is very warm and inspired by colours of a sunset. It reminds of late summer and autumn, with lighter warm shades, oranges, lots of brown and a bit of burgundy. However, the 35K has more neutral and cool tones, inspired by colours of coffee. There is a selection of light shades, brown and some blue and grey toned shades. This palette would be great for everyday neutrals, and the overall colour palette reminds me of winter. The 35O is my favourite out of these palettes, but they are both stunning!

There is my little summary of Morphe palettes. As I said earlier, the selection is endless so I will leave the link here if you want to look at more Morphe palettes. Let me know if you have any Morphe palettes, or whether you've heard of them.

How I Stay Inspired With Blogging

With any passion, job or hobby, every once in a while it can be hard to stay inspired. Blogging is no exception. You've got to be consistent and original, so when you're not feeling very inspired it's pretty tough. Inspiration can come from anywhere. A place, a change of thought or a conversation can generate a ton of ideas. There are some practicals ways, as well as thoughts to keep in mind, that I use when I'm feeling uninspired. I hope these can help other bloggers too.

1. Think about why you love your passion. What made you start your blog in the first place? What do you love writing about - fashion, beauty, food, travel? Do you prefer writing, or photography, or both? Go back to basics and think about why you want to blog, and the how will come later.

2. Have a vision board. Whether it's a pinboard, a photo wall or a scrapbook, having a vision board full of things that make you feel inspired gives you something to look at every day. Your dream home, memories, your favourite quotes, fashion inspiration, just fill it up with what ever you want. Social media sites like Tumblr and Pinterest can be used to create an online vision board, my Tumblr is constantly changing! You can also save photos on instagram now and sort them into different collections, like a mini Pinterest.

4. Ask others for support. Send a tweet or an instagram post asking your followers what they would like to see. Have a chat to someone close to you, whether they're into blogging or not. Look for blog posts that are about post ideas. It's totally okay to ask for help if you're feeling uninspired. Just one spark can start a fire, and one conversation can lead to so many ideas.

5. Follow people/surround yourself with people who inspire you. Social media can be a nasty place, but it can also be an inspiring place, so always support other bloggers with kind messages and comments. Follow bloggers who have a real, positive influence on you. Read their blog posts and watch their videos. Seeing your favourite creators doing what they do best can be so inspiring, especially if you can see how passionate they are.

6. Keep up with what's going on. I'm not saying you have to write a post just because something is on trend, because if it's not for you that's completely okay. However, it's important to be involved with the blogging community. If there are any new products loads of people are raving about, or if there are issues that many bloggers are discussing, it could inspire you to write a blog post. Your blog must be original, but keeping up with the blogging world may help you be more inspired and consistent.

7. Don't lose ideas - write them down, work on them etc. I always write any blog ideas I have. Once they're gone, they might not come back! Sometimes you have to sit down and think about blog posts you want to write, and sometimes ideas can come out of the blue. Once you've created a list of ideas over time, you may feel inspired to write again. If your ideas are all over the place, with no specific posts in mind, simply writing a mind map of words/phrases is a good start.

Do you ever struggle with finding inspiration? How do you like to stay inspired?

Summer Wishlist: New Look

There are some lovely pieces in New Look at the moment, so I knew a wishlist would be coming soon. This wishlist is small, but it has items that look so fun to style. Some of them would also be summer basics for years to come, whereas a few are inspired by the trends this summer!

 My style is very casual and basic, but also preppy and feminine. I love basic pieces that can also look really stylish, such as the white embroidered shirt, which could be worn with a skirt or jeans the perfect smart-casual outfit.

Stripes never go out of style, and there are quite a few stripy items in this wishlist! The wide leg cropped trousers are so stunning, they would look so good with a plain white t-shirt or crop top! I also love the stripy playsuits and the dress in the middle, just one of these could make an outfit. They would look so nice on holiday or any summer day/occasion. All you need are some sandals, a small bag and some sunnies!

Slogan t-shirts have been everywhere this season, so I had to include on in this post, the one in the top right corner says 'Lucky', and you could style this in so many ways. You could even style it with the pleated trousers below, I've also floral trousers everywhere this summer. I like that these ones are black because they would go with so many tops, but there are some bright red ones available if you want a pop of colour.

That rounds up my short but sweet summer wishlist. I'd love to know whether you like any of these items, and what you've enjoyed wearing this season!
