Now is the time to start thinking ahead to 2014. What are you hoping to achieve in the New Year? And more importantly, what will you be doing with your blog?
I like to plan ahead, write my goals list and create an action plan each New Year. But this time I want to share everything I’ve learnt about blogging with you!
I’ve developed the Big Blogging Bootcamp 30 day e-course - an interactive bitesize curriculum aimed to help you get your blogging mojo on, improve your blogging skills, get the most out of your blog … plus all those bits in between.
I have never been the most actively fit person. Nope. Not me. I’d much rather read a book or go wandering with a camera in hand than sweat it all out in the gym. A part of me blames the schools I went to, they were so focussed on winning and picking the most able of pupils for teams that I ended up convinced I was no good at school. I had no confidence at all.
It’s not that I wasn’t entirely lazy either. I was heavily into performing arts as a child and would spend my spare time rehearsing for plays or taking singing lessons or learning new dance sequences. So I guess that was the part of my life that kept me active.
It would have been nice to get the encouragement to take up regular exercise or find a sport for me when I was young.
This is our last minute entry for the Loving lastminute.com Spontaneity Champion competition. We are hoping it might be enough to get us through to the next stage. But it’s kinda tough to sell yourself and your experiences in just 60 seconds. Plus, when there’s two of you, there’s even less time to get your personality across. Eeeek!
Still, it was really fun to finally get the boyf on a video with me. We had so many laughs and it was a race against time before the sunset. Darn winter and it’s super-short days!
So the idea of the competition is to find spontaneous, adventurous, curious travellers to go on £50,000 worth of experiences next year, which the boyf and I would totally be perfect for. We love outings and travel and whatnot. Hell, we even met travelling! It’s in our blood. We’re always on the move. We like change and we tend to go wherever the wind takes us. I’d say we were certainly spontaneous.
Of course, there’s stiff competition out there so for now we’ll just have to keep our fingers crossed. *cross ‘em tight*
If you fancy watching our 60 second video it’s here below for your viewing pleasure.
And as I was editing the clips into the short video entry I realised just how amusing the rest of the clips were. So with a little twitter encouragement I also made a little bloopers video for my Rosaliliumtv subscribers. Cue lots of giggling!
So yeah, we’re still relatively new to the youtube-ing game but it was so fun that I’m hoping there may be more in future. I’m not sure where we’d go with that idea so if you have any ideas, or anything you’d like to see, do let us know.
Thanks for watching! And do give it a thumbs up on youtube. That would be rad!
On Thursday evening the first West Midlands Women of the Year Awards held at the rather swanky Hotel la Tour in Birmingham. It was a bit of a dressing up affair so the girls were in the pretty dresses and the boys were looking sharp. We sipped champagne, nibbled at canapes and celebrated all the awesome women of the West Midlands.
Remember when I went to London to try out the Cricut machine and made a super cute little cushion cover? That was great fun. I even have one of my own now which I am using to make ALL the Christmas pressies with this year. Yey for crafty fun! Well, the very nice people at […]
One of my long time favourites on Rosalilium (one of my first blog posts was about them back in 2010) is The Bellwether. Home to quirky and fun cross stitch awesomeness. This website is for crafty inclined folk who want something less twee and a little more kick-ass to their hobby. The Bellwether (formerly known […]
Making your own custom tab covers for your Facebook page is quick and easy to do. This is one of those things I have should have done ages ago. I don’t why I thought it would be tricky, I guess because it looks so effective. I thought ‘oh, that must takes ages to fiddle about […]
Who likes sweeties? I like sweeties. I spent my childhood running down to the local newsagents whenever I found a spare 10p. There the shop assistant would pick a small paper bag and pair of tongs to take my order for my 10p-mixup. Ahhh, those were the days. And if you were feeling really flush […]
I have been obsessed with homewares for as long as I can remember. I spent my childhood collecting images out of magazines and designing my dream home in scrapbooks. As an adult I worked as a visual merchandiser in the homewares section of a high street retailer whilst studying at university. And now, as a […]
Why break one fashion rule when you can break them all?! Apparently you are not supposed to mix brown and black or blue and brown or something blah blah blah … well, I’m breaking whatever that rule is. I’m wearing blue, brown and black and no-one can stop me. Yeah! I like it.
