Why I’m Thankful I Started A Blog

Starting a blog took me so long to pluck the courage to do – What if it’s a total disaster? What is people just laugh at it? What if I can’t keep it up? What if nobody reads it? Some of the many reasons why I doubted myself. I finally took the plunge and began Blonde Amy, almost two years ago now, and after a recent job interview it surfaced just how many skills and qualities my blog has provided for me as a person and I’m so thankful for it.

Life Lately #5 – Moving to Devon, Getting A First & A New Job!

It’s been a while since I’ve done a ‘Life Lately’ post and I feel as though a lot has happened recently making one of these posts more appropriate than ever. I also don’t feel like I’ve written up a “sit down and chat” kinda post in a while so what with the whirlwind of a month I’ve had, I thought this was the perfect time to take time out and explain exactly what I’ve been up too!

Things I’ve Learnt From A Long Distance Relationship…

Recently I’ve moved back to Devon, ending the long distance relationship my boyfriend and I have had to have over the past few months. I’ve learnt a lot from this time apart and I wanted to share the pros and cons of it as I know when I was approaching Uni I thought we would have to do it over three years and I know many of you are going to be in a very similar position so I thought I’d shed light on my experience in the hope it helps yours too…

#NationalSmileMonth2016 with Corsodyl

corsodyl

At 21, my biggest fear is still going to the dentist and it probably always will be. With that in mind, I always do what I can to keep my teeth and gums as healthy as possible to avoid a traumatic experience with the dentist which is why I was so excited when Corsodyl got in touch (a brand I love using and have done ever since my former dentist recommended them) to celebrate #NationalSmileMonth between May 16th to June 16th. We are coming close to the end and so I thought I’d share with you my top tips in keeping your mouth as healthy as possible…

One of the biggest things I’m already beginning to miss about the town I lived in within London was the Debenhams exactly three minutes away from my flat (totes didn’t time it, I swear.. okay, maybe I did) and so just before I left I decided to do a little Debenhams Beauty Haul just for old times really,eh? That and I was given a voucher with almost £100 on it from my previous work and had a list of new products I really wanted to try and so I saw this as the opportunity to finally add them to my basket! So keep on reading to find out exactly what I picked up…
