Hello and Happy Friday again! Can you actually believe we’re at the end of April? I know I can’t.
Today’s Friday Favourite goes out to Tarnya from Sweet Allure. I first became aware of Tarnya when I spotted her gorgeous prints floating around Twitter and I knew I just had to have all of it! Only problem is I have nowhere to display it in the flat so I have to wait… But that’s not the point. Anyway, after this, I found myself reading more and more of Tarnya’s posts and I have to say I’m actually somewhat addicted to them – diving on them the minute I see a new post is live!
So what do you know about Tarnya? She’s originally from Nottingham but currently lives in Sheffield where by day she works as a video games tester (dream job, am I right?). Tarnya started blogging as a creative outlet, not expecting herself to last more than a month. Yet, here we are a year and a half later and I am honestly so glad she didn’t stop! As with quite a few bloggers I follow, Tarnya started off blogging about one topic- beauty – but has since spread out to more of a lifestyle blogger, talking about anything that peaks her interest. One of the main reasons I love Tarnya is because she tries to post three times a week – no sooner have I read one, another appears to keep me coming back again and again for more!
One of my all time favourite posts of Tarnya’s is Anxiety: Me, Myself and a Little Thing Called Anxiety. It’s such an open, honest post about her experience with anxiety and how she was diagnosed.
I never thought much of it, it was normal to have a million thoughts going through my head at any one moment. Those moments of sheer panic before entering a room with a huge crowd of people. Or answering a phone call, any phone call, even from people I know.
I enjoy (really the wrong word here but I can’t think of the right word) reading other peoples’ experiences as it helps spread to other people just what some people go through on a daily basis. I seriously doubt this was an easy post for Tarnya to write, and I think that’s what makes it so moving to read. It’s real life, it’s not just someone’s thoughts or an idea .
If you haven’t already chatted to Tarnya, or don’t already follow her on her social media sites, check out her links below! You could find yourself with a new blogging bff:
Remember to come back next week for another installment in my 2017 Friday Favourites series.
