Pinterest

Good evening guys! It has been a little while since I wrote a blog post but so so many of you over on my Instagram requested to know what my Pinterest handle was so I thought I would also share it over on here.

This is a little snapshot of what my account is looking like at the moment. I am currently in the process of pinning new ideas for spring – style and home interiors. I have also started to pin some bits and bobs which I plan on using when we move to a new home. This is not anytime soon but it’s nice to explore colours, fabrics and furnishings to see what would work well together in another space.

My next blog post will be my monthly favourites so keep your eye out for that towards the end of February.

Feed of Change

Good evening everyone. For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you will know that I am making a lot of changes to my feed and what I share with you all. Some of you who follow me here may never have seen my Instagram. If you would like to follow me over there too, then my account can be found below or on my home page. I thought I would just make it really black and white and put together a little blog post about what exactly will be changing and the reasons why. 


I have been thinking about changing up the aesthetic on my feed for a while now and was really worried how it would be received. I guess I was worried because every day when I see I have over 5,600 followers I still can’t believe it. The thought of thousands of you who followed me for a reason not being happy with what I am deciding to do now is a bit daunting. 😂


I will be continuing to chat to you on stories and share little bits of my life over on there too. I will also continue to share my favourite posts for my fashion hashtag #sundaysstyledinspo each Sunday. The way I share accounts on a daily basis will be a little different from now on and I will also be sharing more Pinterest boards with you guys for interiors and styling inspiration. Pinning ideas is something I love…lusting over all the gorgeous interiors and wishing I had the wardrobe of dreams so why not share them with you?


Over on my feed I will share interiors posts, style posts and a couple of lifestyle posts each week. I will of course continue to work with brands I am passionate about and I have a lot of giveaways coming up which you will all LOVE. I am trying to post a certain theme on a particular day but I will just have to see how this works. You will be seeing less of my face on my feed as I move away from #selfies and upload more uniformed styling posts alongside the other types of posts I have already mentioned.


These changes are happening solely for me. I want to put more thought into what I want to be sharing with you all. Even though my face may not make a regular appearance, my squares are not any less personal. These changes are not happening because of any other reason than I feel like a change needs to happen and now is the right time.


I am really excited about it all and planning my feed for the next two weeks has really given me so much joy – something I feel like I had lost on this platform recently.


Thank you so much for all of your kind messages and lovely DMs – my favourite bit about this funny little app.

Time Management

Does anyone else feel like there just isn’t enough time in a day? Often I speak to other creators and bloggers about the topic of time management and how they deal with it. I have always been quite good at managing my time but that was before I was blogging and creating content. I start a new job in September, which I am super excited about, and I know I won’t be as active on social media. But that’s ok! I have lost count of how many times I have read the sentence ‘I am feeling burnt out’ or ‘I don’t know how to keep up with it all’. Here are my 10 top tips for how to manage your time on social media.

1. Cut yourself some slack. Remember you are doing your best and you can’t do it all.

2. Set yourself realistic targets and goals. When you are working full time it is super hard to take the time out to create content, blog and engage with others. I know that when I start working full time I will be posting and blogging a lot less. Go with the flow!

3. Only engage with those who you are really interested in. In one of my previous blog posts I talked about how I unfollowed hundreds of people because I wanted to see a feed I was excited about engaging with. Best thing I ever did. It saves so much time too!

4. Stick to what you know and love. Creating content is so much fun and you can be super creative. However, I don’t have the time to travel to beautiful fields full of flowers, stand on ladders for my flatlays, photograph myself sitting on doorsteps with beautiful doors behind and sitting in coffee shops looking glam. I wish…😍

5. Keep your readers and followers in the loop. If you need a break then just say so.

6. Set up a little chat group. One of the most amazing things about Instagram and blogging is you connect with other people. I have the best chats with other creators and you are all in the same boat too.

7. If it ain’t fun, don’t do it! If you are not enjoying creating content and writing, STOP. Give yourself some time and find some inspiration somewhere.

8. Use old photographs from your gallery. Honestly, this is such a time saver! I regularly use photos that I haven’t uploaded from weeks and months ago. It keeps the pressure off having to create content there and then.

9. Use the app ‘Preview’. I talked about this in another blog post recently. This is my all time favourite app for sorting out my feed on Instagram. The app allows you to upload the photographs you to see your feed before publishing it live. You can move your photos around, edit them and even schedule them to go out if you know you aren’t near your phone later.

10. Keep a level head. If content creating is not your full time job, you simply won’t be able to keep up with the level of engagement and reach that others can. 💕

In true ‘Twenty-Something and…’ style, I found a quote to sum this blog post up…’It’s how we spend our time here and now, that really matters. If you are fed up with the way you have come to interact with time, change it.’  Marcia Wieder X
