Hello world and welcome to this special little project of mine!

I wanted to start this blog for a while now and always seemed to have an excuse to postpone things a little longer. The moment never seemed to be right and the easiest thing was to leave things for tomorrow. And tomorrow wasn’t coming. So I decided to make it TODAY.

I don’t think there is a better time to start than the present moment. Whatever it is you want to do in your life, do it NOW. Whatever you need, to get where you want to be, just get it. Start taking baby steps but do it today. Never leave things for tomorrow.

I’m also a firm believer in doing things with true passion! When you’re passionate about what you do, your hard work and commitment pay off. And to be able to share your passion with other people is one of the greatest things of our time.

So let me tell you a bit about who I am…

I started blogging over 3 years ago while studying journalism at university but as some of you know, student life can get a bit overwhelming. There are all sorts of different projects you want to be part of and that makes it harder to decide what’s important and leave what’s not to one side. I worked with magazines both abroad and in the UK, helped a couple of friends out with their blogs and eventually moved to London and started working full time which took over my entire life and all these fun little activities were left behind.

I kept one thing going throughout the entire time though – my Instagram account. And this is where I was able to express my creativity and share exciting things that were happening with my life. We started travelling a lot with my boyfriend and I kept thinking I need a platform to share all the exciting news and show all the great places that we visit and the idea of that just kept me going. Until one day I did a bit of research, registered my domain, bought a pipdig template and here I am, sharing my passion with the world one little note at a time. Well, this one isn’t exactly little but I promise to keep it short and sweet, so you can enjoy not having to read an entire essay.

I hope you like the idea of being part of my adventure. If you wish to receive notifications of my new posts you can subscribe via the form on my landing page and also follow me on social media via the links below.

P.S. Please forgive me if I do things wrong. I’m still new to this.

      Hi love!
      Thanks for your comment. The template I use is from and the platform I use is WordPress. WordPress is easier for me as that’s what I’m used to from my previous blog. I highly recommend the Pipdig themes because they’re very easy to work with, especially if you haven’t got a clue about web design, like me. It’s the easiest template to work with and you have all the quirky widgets and different layout options. Hope that helps! Let me know if you need any other info, I would be more than happy to help. Have a lovely day!
