4 Things I Have Learned From Blogging

I’ve been blogging for over two years now. I know that I’m fairly small and insignificant in the world of blogging, but if nothing else I’ve learned a few things along the way. I don’t proclaim to be some sort of blogging guru- I certainly make mistakes regularly- but I hope that today’s post is helpful in looking at your own blog in some way! These are the big lessons that I have learned from blogging…

How to Relax in Your Late Twenties

For a lot of us, relaxation doesn’t actually exist in your late teens and early twenties. There is always a Starbucks trip to be made, always a road trip to go on, always something to be done. However, when you have finally arrived in your late twenties, you start to realise that you have to take care of yourself and you won’t always bounce back immediately. While you might still have the stamina to go out until 2am and then be at work for 9am the next morning, it might still be wise to invest in some down time for yourself.

Style File Friday, Lilly for Target

So, in the last month or so, I’ve decided to jump into the ocean of Lilly Pulitzer. Charlotte has been the most fantastic guide throughout this process- to an outside, it can be a little overwhelming figuring out Lilly. It’s not the most expensive brand but it’s also not the cheapest by a long stretch. Today’s post is all about how I came to my first piece….

Travel Thursday, Kensington Gardens

Kensington Palace is associated with a few different royals, including Queen Anne and Queen Victoria. However, in recent memory it is most strongly associated with Diana, Princess of Wales! If you ever have the chance to visit, I recommend that you wander all around the Palace and gardens as you will see the gates where all of the flowers and gifts were left after her passing and the Sunken Garden which is currently transformed in honour of her memory!

ΑΓΔ International Reunion Day, 2017

April is one of my favourite times of year, as it means that it is time for Alpha Gamma Delta sisters everywhere to celebrate International Reunion Day together. It is an event that happens every spring that allows us to celebrate our eleven wonderful founders, our sisters, and what the organisation means to each of us. Our International Headquarters picked a fantastic theme, “Empowering Women to Lead the Way”! It is a strong and important message that links every one of us together while encouraging us to keep our individual strengths.  Continue reading

An Historian About… Beauty and the Beast

Following Charlotte I am doing my own Beauty and the Beast review! If you have somehow been living under a rock or are very unawares of new movies that are coming out, the live action remake of Beauty and the Beast came into theatres a month ago. It had been built up for months and months, and I think you would had to have worked hard to avoid it. I did try to avoid anything more than the first trailer, especially detailed film site reviews lest something be spoiled for me. I went into it with as fresh a mind as possible!

Books For… When You Want to Be a Kid Again!

If you were anything like me as a child, you were precocious, probably more than a little annoying, and you loved reading. Children’s books have really developed and expanded as a genre, including the whole tween and YA subgenre- I love that there is a never-ending stream of options for kids to find their reading fit! However, I still believe that the old classic series are where it’s at. There isn’t a ton of violence, they are classic mysteries, and there’s something different about getting lost in the past for a few hours at a time. Today’s post is all about my favourite books as a kid, so get ready for a blast from the past!
