Going self hosted

Going self hosted

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all well and are having a lovely weekend! About a month ago I plucked up the courage to make the move and go self hosted which I’m not going to lie, was a pretty big decision that I was SO excited for but also nervous for at the same time! I did a blog post that you can see HERE that explains why I decided to go self hosted and all that jazz but since doing that post I had a LOT of questions and requests for me to do a blog post dedicated to my experience and the process of going self hosted as I know it was something that was quite daunting for me that I had to do a lot of research on before finally making the move. For today’s post I thought I would do exactly that and dedicate this post all about going self hosted and hopefully try to answer all your questions. This might turn out to be quite an essay of a post but I’ll try to make it as simple and easy to understand as possible! I hope you enjoy my lovelies… View Post

My Scoliosis MRI Experience

My Scoliosis MRI Experience

Hello everyone, 

I hope you are all well and are having a great start to the week! Yesterday I went to the hospital to have a thoracic spine MRI scan as a few weeks prior to that I was diagnosed with spinal scoliosis which is a condition that causes the spine to curve to the side. It can affect any part of the spine, but the most common regions are the chest area (thoracic scoliosis) which is what I have and the lower section of the back (lumbar scoliosis.) I have had problems with my back since I was young but I only recently discovered that this was the cause of my problems. I thought I would do a quick bonus blog post this week and share with you my experience and things you should know before having an MRI if any of you have an appointment for a scan or may need one in the future which hopefully none of you will!  View Post

How to create rose gold/copper text in photoshop!

How to create rose gold/copper text in photoshop!

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all well and are having a lovely weekend! Earlier on today I was trying to find out ways on how to create rose gold/copper text for my header image on my blog as I’ve always loved how it looks and if you know me by now, I flipping love a bit of copper! Anyway, I came across a fabulous way of how to do it in Photoshop when researching it (where I found the information is linked below) and thought I would share with you how I did it in a few simple steps all for free! I am by no means an expert but I love just playing around with the software and seeing what I can create! I decided that I wanted a copper header image but I am also going to be showing you a rose gold text option if copper isn’t your cup of tea!  I hope you enjoy my lovelies… View Post

Let’s Have A Catch Up…

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all well and have had a lovely Easter! I can’t believe how fast the holidays have flown by! It’s been so nice to just relax for the past two weeks and to not think about work, exams and all those things as much! I haven’t done a more chatty post in a while so I thought I would sit down and have a good old catch up with you all because as you can see, there have been some pretty big changes made to my blog over the past few days! Also, I was so pleased to see that you all seemed to enjoy my previous baking post so I am planning on doing more baking related posts in the future! Anyway, you might want to grab yourself a cuppa and get comfy because this could turn into a bit of a ramble…

Quick & Easy Easter Creme Egg Cupcakes!

IMG_8776 Hello everyone,

I hope you are all well and are having a lovely Easter! A few days ago I was watching Mary Berry’s Everyday Easter themed program and it got me inspired to get creative in the kitchen and try out my own recipe! I am by no means an expert at baking but besides from blogging, I really enjoy baking as a hobby and as it’s Easter I thought it would be the perfect time to do something different instead of my usual beauty posts by sharing with you how to create these quick and easy creme egg cupcakes! Originally I was going to do Easter nests but I decided that I would have a go at making a basic cupcake recipe and adding my own Easter decorations on top instead! I hope you enjoy my lovelies… View Post
