The Unique Blogger Award


A blog post coming at you a little out of sync but I prefer to post awards outside of my usual content so here you go, post Christmas haze nurturing the food baby and lazy bones over the next few days.

Thank you ever so much to Lauren for choosing to listen to me ramble once again. Go and check out Lauren’s blog as soon as you can, she was also kind enough to have featured me on her Favourite bloggers of 2017 list / blog which features some really amazing bloggers so I am extremely honoured.

Eek, one must contain one’s excitement! (Or not!)

This is my first ever blogger tag which is extremely important and deserves its own category, I would love to be able to do a few more of these so a massive thank you to Lisa for this, the Would You Rather…? Christmas tag.


Lip Scrub – ing!

A little pot of sugary, flavoured goodness is all you need to exfoliate that soft lip skin and get rid of any hanging bits of unpleasantness.

For an amateur like me, applying a matte liquid lipstick is an art form in itself; the perfect application takes time, practice and a lot of concealer around the mouth to get the straightest of edges and cleanest of applications. There is however another step frequently omitted that would make your lipstick life that much easier in the future, one I cottoned onto a little later in life but something I felt absolutely necessary to share with you, this step requires a little bit of a lip scrub and a whole lot of restraint.

5 quick tips on SEO for blogging beginners!

‘The first time I saw the words ‘Domain Authority (DA)’ I felt like I was a very small Neon Tetra in an aquarium of Oscars…’

It seems I have the daunting task of optimising three months worth of blog post images to include alt text, a task that is going to need a lot of coffee and even more patience as I edit and re position all images since September 2017. While the best blogging advice I’ve ever received would be NOT to focus too heavily on SEO (Search Engine Optimisation), it’s important to have an understanding of these concepts to get the basics right from the outset, the rest will follow.

10 November Netflix picks!

… I couldn’t help but feel like I was stuck in a Tenacious D music video…

November has been a particularly busy Netflix month for me, being home and in recovery means that a lot of time was spent laying in bed or assuming the position on the sofa in front of my favourite Netflix series or movie. It also saw me watching a lot more movies than I normally do (which is hardly any) so those have been included for you below.

My PR Media Kit (A parody)

I have read a lot lately about monetising my blog, better understanding PR and working with brands in order to build a business with this baby of mine, Moonsomnia. Weeks of research have led me to the conclusion that a media kit is essential to approaching brands and businesses as I build this little empire. While I will, sometime in the near future, work on having a legitimate media kit created, I had a little giggle at a draft I put together just for fun. It highlights the struggles of a new blog with limited social media following / DA rating but showcases the appeal of a smaller, lesser known blog.

A leap of faith.

I have chosen a new path that will allow me to realise a lifelong dream, to do what I love and never work a day in my life.



It has been a while since I took a jump without forethought and planning. Almost all of my life has been calculated down to the finest T, every decision carefully crafted and designed for a desired outcome. I’ve never been an impulsive person, my OCD disallows careless action and I don’t usually do anything without hours of consideration.
