October has been a pretty slow relaxing month, which has been nice! It’s also been a month of warm sunshine, birthdays, illnesses and a trip to the Harry Potter Studio Tour with my mum ⚡️🎉
I’ve run out of inspiration and time for writing blog posts at the moment, but I should be back up and running properly very soon (I have loads of half-written posts I want to finish and publish!!).
In the meantime, as I’m spending a lot more time over on Instagram, I thought I’d share some more of my favourite accounts that I absolutely love!!
August is probably one of my favourite months; mostly because it’s my birthday and I usually take a week off to have some down time! Although this year I managed to get two weeks off due to my brother’s wedding being at the end of the month!
I absolutely love getting to hang out with some of my favourite Brighton people and Amy and Mickaela from Salon Success, so I was thrilled to get an invite to another dinner event; this time at Six in Hove! I’ve heard loads of good things about the restaurant, so I was excited I’d be trying it out for myself and getting to see the new products from Salon Success 😀
I haven’t done one of these for absolutely ages; in fact, the last time was March 2016 (Check out parts one and two)! I now follow so many more accounts now than when I first started doing this and it seems that everyone has massively upped their games!! I thought I’d share 10 accounts that I’m absolutely loving at the moment 🙂
Oh jeez, where to start with February?? Well, I spent the first two weeks of it off work, feeling incredibly dizzy and sick!! I was in bed for most of the mornings with the TV on quietly as a distraction, then had a quick shower and flumped on the sofa with a blanket for the afternoons; Dog Rescuers with Alan Davies has become one of my new favourite shows!!
Around the new year, I decided I really wanted to streamline my Instagram account. I don’t mean my own photos however (although perhaps I should delete some of the really rubbish ones!), I mean the accounts that I follow and the photos I end up seeing on my feed. Although doing this hasn’t exactly beaten the algorithm, I am finally seeing a lot of different accounts when I have a scroll through 😊
So how did I do it?
Wow, what a long old year, eh? The first few months seemed super long and the rest, as usual, has absolutely sailed by! I hope you’ve all had a really lovely 2017 but if you haven’t, here’s hoping your 2018 is much better 🙂
If you haven’t got a clue what I’m talking about, blog retweet accounts are specific accounts on Twitter that will retweet your promo blog tweets; either to a larger following or to loads of different people who don’t perhaps follow you and haven’t read your blog before 😀
If you follow these accounts, it’s also a great way to find some incredible new bloggers and Twitter accounts to follow as well 🙂
I’ve seen a few tweets floating around recently asking people for their favourite retweet accounts, so I thought I’d share the ones I use the most often.
If you follow me on social media and regularly read my blog, you’ll know that things went a little quiet last month. I decided to take some down-time from blogging to concentrate on some real-life projects I’d been neglecting. Every weekend is usually spent taking blog photos, editing them and proof-reading blog posts for the next week, so it was lovely not to have to worry about any of that for a while.
