Introducing … The Little Things

Starting a newsletter seemed to be pretty big in the 2017 blogging world ~ the perfect way to reach out to your readership in a different and even more personal way. I am subscribed to many a newsletter as they are perfecting for snatching reads whenever I get a chance in the day as they are already on my phone – waiting for the subway on the platform, standing outside a lecture hall waiting to go in, over porridge in the morning. So many women in blogging who I adored started newsletter and I signed up to every single one.

I love to write, so starting a newsletter and having another opportunity to write was always on the cards for me. However I didn’t want to start something I would fall out of love with in about two weeks time and I didn’t want to start something I felt was a half-arsed effort on my part. It had be perfect. It had to fit in with me, The Monday Project and the content I want to create. And I think I’ve done it.

Writer’s Block Sucks – & This Is How I Deal With It

Writer’s block can be really shit – especially when your ultimate escape route is writing. My blog is easily one of the most enjoyable things in my life – it is definitely one of the things I care about the most. The complete and utter freedom of having total control of the content, the vision and the future is something I thrive of and somewhere I go to to escape. Having the words unable to come is my idea of a literal hell.

I had about three posts to write for the next couple of weeks. With an essay deadline prancing around my shoulder and another hangover day (swear I’m not an alcoholic, just a student who has partied too much recently), it was the perfect day to smash out some blog posts.

March Goals

If I was being really honest about March goals one of them would be to pick me up some new clothes. Like the women’s joggers from Jack Wills as I am dying for a new pair of sweats. But I want to maintain some sort of ambition in March so I’ve had a little think about what I want to achieve next month.  AKA I don’t want to sit on my bum all month seeing how much of Netflix I can get through. Spoiler: it’s a lot.

I started 2018 with a spring in my step ~ like I do every year ~ and surprisingly I haven’t lost my footing just yet. Yes I’m still awful at budgeting and sometimes I can’t remember the last time I ate a vegetable (no one tell my mum lol) but I haven’t lost my zest for 2018 just yet. So in the spirit of positivity, the fact the year is moving incredibly quickly and my April holiday to Ibiza is not that far off anymore, I thought I’d think about March and what I want to achieve

A Birthday Wish List

The time has come, I’m about to turn another year older. I’m finally saying goodbye to my teenage years and entering the next decade of my life ~ what the actual flippity, flipping hell. I though I’d whip together a wish list of all the things I kinda fancy for my birthday and might treat myself too because it’s my birthday.

It gives me an excuse to trawl the likes of ASOS, Urban Outfitters and Etsy for all the pretty things because I’m a bit of a magpie and like shiny things. Urban Outfitters is probably my favourite shop right now for everything ~ fashion, accessories and interiors and everything in that store sings to me.

The Importance Of A Sort-Your-Life-Out-Saturday

I have recently been reading Sarah Knight’s Get Your Sh*t Together and well, it is inspiring. I love her no nonsense approach to well, everything, and the anti-guru approach to telling you to get your shit together.

Since coming back to university about three and a half weeks ago, I’ve been getting my shit together. Slowly but surely. I’ve been unravelling for about two years and I really wanted 2018 to be different, to get a handle on things and have my shit together. This is where the concept of a sort-your-life-out-Saturday came into play.
