April can be summed up like this for me: Travelling, birthdays, seeing friends, feeling unmotivated, enjoying the small bursts of sunshine, and a mixed bag of good and bad news. It’s been quite the whirlwind month, and although I usually love April because of my birthday; I can’t wait to see the back of it really! May seems like it’ll (hopefully) be a much better month!
I’ve got the reading bug back which is great, and at the moment I’m devouring Michelle Mcnamara’s ‘I’ll be Gone In The Dark’. I’ve been absolutely FASCINATED with the news that the Golden State Killer has been caught, and her book is perfect for reading up on the history of the case. I thoroughly recommend it!
Creativity wise; I’ve been in such a slump for the longest time. I’d say all of March and April really, which is major for me. This wasn’t just some ‘crappy week’, this was a long, dreary slump. I haven’t felt like myself in ages, and I really hope that changes soon, because it’s made me realise how much that can affect every area of my life if I’m not motivated. My blog has been quieter than ever, I’ve made the minimum effort with Instagram and other socials, and I haven’t been creating much at all. Until the past two weeks. I’ve really tried my best to push myself, and so I’ve been making some handmade coasters which have proven to be quite popular! In fact they aren’t even on my Etsy store right now because every time I make a new set, they sell out immediately which is amazing! It’s worth keeping an eye on my Instagram stories if you’re interested, as that’s where I share them all. As well as this, I’ve also been working really hard on a cute new Tshirt design, and my campaign is finally here! Visit here to grab one of your own, and help support me getting these made! It would mean the world to me 🙂
April has been a blessing for my advertisers, as they’ve all been so wonderful! So let’s round up the bunch who have graced my sidebar –
Sally is one of the loveliest and most supportive bloggers out there! she writes about her life, books she loves, outfits, and more. I love following her on social media too, as she’s always such a bright and positive force in my feed!
Shelley’s blog is the type of blog I LOVE to devour in one sitting. It’s packed full of a bit of everything (lifestyle, travels, reviews, real talk about real issues) and it comes in one beautifully laid out package too!
Megan is an American blogger/singer/writer, and she’s so inspiring! Her blog is a colourful explosion of prettyiness, and she writes about her life, what inspires her, blogging/social media and more!

As soon as I first visited Chrissie’s blog; I fell in love. Her style is so beautiful, her posts are infectious and I love how she has something to say, as well as making me envy her wardrobe!
Emma’s blog is one I’ve loved for a while now; her beautiful photography never fails to inspire me, and her writing always draws me in. She writes about blogging, social media, photography and so much more!
Self described as a ‘frank, honest and sometimes bizarre’ account of her newly disabled life; this blog is a great pit stop for anyone going through a similar journey, or wanting to understand more. It’s packed with real, from the heart writing, and thoughtful posts which you’ll love.
