Friday Favourites: Tiffany

Wow who knew we would reach my 13th Friday Favourite? I’m actually kinda proud of myself for getting this far.


Today’s post is all about the delightful Tiffany from Food and Other Loves. I first was aware of Tiffany back when I was working with GRLPOWR and then as she got more involved in Bloggers Tribe, I found myself looking forward to reading her next post, anticipating when they would appear in my inbox. So why don’t we take a look at Tiffany, the person behind the blog?


Blogging and living in Sheffield, Tiffany is a 22 year old lifestyle blogger who uses her blog to write about whatever she feels like. It’s for this reason you’ll probably find a lot of baking posts or posts about London – she loves them both! Tiffany started blogging about three years ago, and loves it more and more each day. Can we maybe help her love today even more?


Now don’t get me wrong, I may have only been following Tiffany over the last couple of months, but I have managed to go back and read a lot of her posts! I really don’t sleep much so it’s been great slowly reading back through to 2014. My favourite blog post of Tiffany’s is It’s Okay To Not Look Forward To Your Birthday. It’s raw, honest, and I loved the entire post. I know I keep picking lifestyle, and quite personal, posts, but that’s just because they’re what I enjoy reading. Of course, there are plenty of other posts on Tiffany’s blog if this one doesn’t appeal to you, so head on over there and give her a follow! As always, her links are below:

Friday Favourites: Melissa

Hey everyone, it’s finally the weekend again and now university has officially finished for easter (and for the year – scary biscuits!) I have another Friday Favourite for you!


As today’s title would suggest, here’s why you all should follow Melissa from Love Melissa. She’s a 19 year old blogger from England, and before I go any further why is everyone younger than me? Anyway, sorry, mind isn’t fully with it there. Melissa started blogging in 2015 under a different name, a different site, and it just wasn’t her. After a bit of rebranding, and a decision not to care who knew about her blog, Melissa started again in 2016 and damn that girl has done well!


Between her love of fashion, and her genuine happiness writing blogs as part of her English A Level course, Melissa soon found something that was both constructive and fun – how many of us can say the same? In the mean time, while she tries to figure out what she wants from life like the rest of us, Melissa is writing some brilliant posts and that’s why you’ve got to go check her out now.


Now, as you know, I’m more of a lifestyle fan at the best of times, which is why I love reading the blogging tags Melissa has done such as her Versatile Blogger Award tag, but one of my favourite posts from Melissa has to be her Top 10 Under £10. As she says herself, it’s great finding drugstore products that work equally well (if not better than) the highend products that take over our newsfeeds and time lines. Definitely worth reading if you’d like to where to get great makeup at an even better price.


I got to know Melissa back when I was part of the GRLPOWR crowd, and I honestly miss talking to her now that I’ve left the group, but I’m so happy to say I’ve had the pleasure of talking to her, and now I want you all to get the opportunity! Just click the links below:

Friday Favourites: Kimberley

Hello hello, I’m heading off to the airport in the next hour or so but we’ve just got time to get today’s post up! Today is all about the lovely Kim from Kimberley Jessica and here’s why you should be following her.


Kim is a 19 year old blogger hailing from Hertfordshire. She’s a self-confessed lover of life and all the small things that make it as great as it is. Her blog covers lifestyle, beauty and more so as usual there is something there for everyone to enjoy!


We started chatting back during Twitter Chats and from then I’ve always loved our little chats. Kim is incredibly supportive – even when she’s not in a good place herself, Kim always seems to have time to talk to anyone who needs it.


I honestly love reading Kim’s posts, so picking just one to feature here was just too difficult. One favourite was Too Many Or Not Enough? where Kim talks about her 23 pets – 23!! I’m extremely jealous, it was enough of a fight for us to get one pet! She’s clearly passionate about this topic, and it helps that there are some adorable pictures along-side this post.


Another favourite is A University Student Living At Home. A lot of people think it’s not worth going to university if you’re going to live at home, but this post reminded me of the many reasons I could’ve chosen to live at home. Anyone considering university but afraid to move out, this is the post for you. It’s perfectly fine to stay at home!


So these are just a few samples of Kimberley’s posts, and if you’d like to follow her, just click the links below!  Have a great weekend everyone, and I’ll be back Monday to join in chats and everything again.

Friday Favourites: Humaira

Hello and welcome back to another Friday Favourite! Isn’t is strange how fast time is flying by?


Today’s post is all about the wonderful Humaira from 1 Week Mary. One day, she decided she wanted to take her love of trying out new things to a new level – every other week, she’d do something different and then write about it so she could develop her love for writing. In between these ‘1 Weekers’ as she calls them, Humaira also throws in a bit of beauty, fashion and lifestyle so there really is always something new to read!

Taken from

Between her comments, advice and tweets, she kept me going through the hard days of summer resits. She somehow seem to know exactly what to say and when, and always managed to get me to smile – regardless of how my day was going. She’s incredible at writing posts, too. They’re written so well and it’s clear that she is interested in each one she writes. With the perfect balance of humour, her posts provide a great place to come and read for a while, to forget any negativity, and restart my efforts with a new-found energy. I don’t know how she does it! With positivity shining through all her words, whether on Twitter or on her blog, Humaira helps lift those of us who have the pleasure of talking with her.


My favourite post of hers would definitely have to be I Wanted To Quit Blogging simply because it’s so brutally honest. Sometimes it’s easy for outsiders to forget the pressures of blogging, and all that comes along with it. They seem to think we just spout words onto the keyboard and they somehow form these magnificent posts that attract anyone and everyone. They think it’s “so cool” that some bloggers get paid to write certain posts, which can bring about the question “So why don’t you get paid?”.

When I first started blogging, I didn’t read anything online about ‘what a blogger should be like’. I didn’t read any (or at least I don’t think I did) posts on ‘how to be a blogger’ or ‘5 million things bloggers should do’ or ‘if you don’t do this you’re a fake blogger’ – okay, you get it – and all I did was freestyle. I wrote the way I wanted to (which is probably why my first couple of posts are so awkwaaaard), I wrote about whatever I wanted to, I took my pictures the way I wanted to and I posted whenever the heck I wanted to. I had no rules and I was taking everything as it came.

How many of us can relate with this? THIS is why I love reading her blog. Everything is relate-able and you certainly wont regret clicking follow on any of these links!

Hello and welcome back to my Friday Favourites, where it’s a Friday so I’m gonna name another of my favourite bloggers that you all should definitely be following!


Today’s blogger is the amazing Jordanne from The Life of a Glasgow Girl and to be honest I don’t even know where to begin with this one! Probably best thing would be to talk a little bit about Jordanne:

That Friday Feeling

I woke up this morning with this song blasting through my head. It’s cloudy, been raining and feels cold but I don’t care because in 48 hours the car will be packed and we’ll be on our way to the airport!

Today will be spent running around gathering spending money, tidying and cleaning, and making sure we leave a list of instructions for Granny while she’s here looking after the animals. After Baron’s close shave at Christmas, when he nearly died from a stomach ulcer due to the stress of being left, we decided we couldn’t put him in kennels again and so Granny offered to come around and look after him for the time we’re away. Hopefully it’ll be okay!

On top of this, today I’ve also to get some revision done but thankfully my work ethic seems to have bounced back a little! If I can get through the Physics of Solids module today then I’ll be pleased, it’s a long module and isn’t all that interesting. But then, what physics is overly interesting?
Now, I’m sitting having breakfast and watching The Royal, a tv series set in the 1960’s and following the doctors at St Aiden’s Royal Free Hospital. It used to be shown on a Sunday night, but now it’s on between 8:30am and 9:30am on weekdays on ITV3. We used to love it, and there isn’t too much blood and gore as some hospital dramas can have! But that’s not really the point of this. While it was on an ad break, I saw an ad for Brief Encounters – shown on a Monday night at 9pm on ITV. As is so frequently the case nowadays, these ads managed to spoil one of the shocking twists at the end of last week’s episode. Don’t you hate when this happens?
Now, I’m going to have to run on and get through the shower etc. Enjoy your day, whatever you get up to, and have a great weekend!
