And we’re back once again for another Friday Favourite! It’s been a strange week, and I am very much aware that once again I am posting this late, but I really wanted to get that Too Long post out first, so I hope you don’t mind another Friday Favourite appearing on a Sunday.
And once again a Friday Favourite’s post is making it up on a Friday! How are you all today? Anyone anything exciting happening this weekend?
Oh wow are we actually achieving a Friday Favourite on a Friday? Must be coming up to the end of the month!
It sounds a bit silly but it feels like all I’ve done recently is write book reviews or My Dream (insert room here) posts, or I’ve taken a massive blogging break since starting work and that is killing me, and so when I sat down to write this week’s Friday Favourite (not on a Friday, again, sorry) it was actually a relief to be doing something slightly different. So shall we find out who this week’s favourite blogger is? Well okay it was kinda given away above but shh…
Welcome back for another not-on-a-Friday Friday Favourite! You’re reading the thoughts of a now free for 4 months (possibly longer if I’ve failed) Katie! But enough about me – today I wanted to tell you why you should be following Sophie from Planet Whispers.
Sophie is one of my all-time favourite bloggers, and her blog header is something else all together. Seriously, even if you only go to her blog to see it then it’s worth it! Although you really should stay around and have a read of her posts, they’re so worth it!
As a 19 year old blogger, Sophie is a beauty, lifestyle and advice blogger who is in love with all things makeup and loves to share it with her ‘whisperers’. Again, I love these sorts of blogs that cover everything, so when I first discovered her posts through Twitter I just fell in love.
My favourite post by Sophie would probably be Lost Friendships, in fact I feel like this was one of the first posts I read! I just loved how true everything she said was, and how easy it was to picture those lost friends while I read her words. Her penultimate paragraph is the one that struck me hardest, though, and I’ve actually saved it to a document of things to remind me it’s okay:
Losing friends is a huge part of life that nobody ever talks about but it happens to everyone. It hurts and that’s ok because letting go of anybody is hard. But you do have to let go. You can’t hold on forever. Moving on is simple, it’s what you leave behind that makes it difficult.
So if you’ve reached this far and still haven’t clicked onto Sophie’s blog, please do click one of the links below! Let’s give her some great stats to start the weekend with.
Aaaaand we’re back again! I will be catching up on the Friday Favourites posts, so hope you don’t mind. Today we’re here to talk about why you should be following Lauren from The Life Of A Student Blogger.
Lauren, as her blog name suggests, is a student at Durham University where she studies English Literature and Philosophy. We both agree that student life can be difficult at times, and so Lauren is blogging her way through the real life experiences she has while at university, rather than just focusing on the fun and games of the entire time. Through this, she not only talks about the difficulties, but how to enjoy your time at university, while providing a place to go to for both advice and a place of comfort – it’s great to know you aren’t the only one feeling a certain way!
What I love about Lauren’s posts is they’re regular, they’re helpful, and all this makes it difficult to pick a favourite post. Anything you click on is so helpful and interesting to read! I’ve particularly enjoyed her revision tips over the last few weeks, especially with my exam season!
If you’d like to find Lauren’s posts for yourself, or to follow her on any of her social medias, then click the links below!
Have a great weekend!
Welcome back to Friday Favourites! The first of May’s Favourites is Holly from Holzieloves and I have to say I’m actually extremely disappointed in myself for not writing this post a lot sooner – sorry Holly! I genuinely thought I had!
Now once again I can’t quite remember the first time Holly and I got chatting, but I love chatting to her and she’s such an awesome person! For as long as she can remember, Holly has always had pen and paper in sight, growing her passion for writing. Her blog covers a lot of different things including beauty, lifestyle and advice. In fact, she’s currently writing a post a day this week so remember to head over to her blog to check them out! And on top of all this, she released her own book – Bullied For Being Me – on Amazon just a few months ago. I can’t say anything about it yet as I only ordered it a few days ago so come back in a few weeks to hear my thoughts!
It was hard to pick a favourite post of Holly’s, I actually really enjoy reading them all! But if I had to pick, my favourite would be Please Don’t Forget Me. It’s raw, emotional, and honest. I can’t imagine what Holly has been going through, and this post lets us have a small insight into her mind as she discusses how she is coping with her Dad’s illness. One thing she says though, is something that all of us should remember:
Make as many memories as possible, be whoever you want and don’t let anybody change you as one day that may be taken from you and you’ll wish you had lived your life to its fullest.
So if you don’t already follow Holly, or just fancy taking a look at some of her posts, check out her links below!
