Virtual Pub Quiz Questions (1)

Since the start of isolation, I've been running pub quizzes for my friends and family at the weekends and we've had such a great time. Sometimes I just run them for fun, and sometimes I'll ask everyone to make a donation to a COVID-19 impacted charity in order to take part, which is a great way to raise some money for charity while we're all stuck at home.

I really don't like boring quizzes asking questions like, 'What is the Capital City of France', I like quizzes that make people laugh, make people think and that aren't easy, so I have spent absolutely hours scouring the internet for some brilliant trivia questions.

I guarantee laughter, and I guarantee you'll learn something new - but also be full of absolutely random and useless facts.

Easy (no bake) Millionaire's Shortbread

If you've read any of my recipes in the past, you'll know I like to make things that are easy and delicious, and also that I'm not great at presentation - but who cares if they taste good right? I started writing up food and baking recipes because I was sick of finding recipes that look great but that are SO hard to do. I wanted the receipes on my blog to be accessible and adaptable to what you have at home, because we don't all have cake tins and brownie tins in every single inch measurement sitting around - hence this EASY Millionaires Shortbread Recipe.

I have to admit, with these no bake Millionaires Shortbread, I didn't follow a recipe, I just had some salted caramel in my fridge from a recent cake I made and thought I would try and make something.

Things to do during self isolation and social distancing due to Coronavirus

I’m sure most of us are still in a little state of shock/denial of the state of the world right now but whether we like it or not, being in self isolation for the foreseeable is unavoidable. It’s not going to be over in a week or two, we’re in it for the long haul so the best thing we can do for our physical and mental well-being is to try where possible to keep a positive mental attitude and fill our time with enjoyable activities, albeit, inside.

When I was a lot younger, I used to say ‘only boring people get bored’ and used to pride myself on keeping entertained in any situation, okay besides at work, but that’s different! So I wanted to share some ideas with you all on some things to keep you occupied and some things I’ll be doing over the coming weeks to beat the boredom.

How Blogging and Influencer Marketing Has Changed, And What Should We Do About It

Well first of all it feels very weird to even be typing on this page right now. I haven't really blogged properly in two years, which on one hand feels like forever, and on the other feels five minutes ago. When I think back to those 'peak years' of blogging in 2015 and 2016, I feel so privileged to have worked with some amazing brands, had great opportunities, met incredible people but most importantly for me, I had my space on the internet to write about whatever I wanted. Something that still baffles me as I sit and write this right now is that although I've been absent from this page for a very long time, people are still finding and reading my posts. It blows my mind. The main reason I started blogging was to be able to have creative freedom to write about whatever I wanted from beauty products to travel to working life, and I truly do miss that. So, in 2020, I'm making a promise to myself to start blogging again. I'm not as fussed as I previously was about brand collaborations, making money or followers, I just want my little page back, and to be able to write about things I love and inspire me, in the hope that someone out they will love them too, or feel inspired.

Of course the main reason I stopped blogging was purely down to time. My job ended up getting pretty crazy to say the least, and as much as I love it (did then, and still do), I lost a lot of myself on a personal level to be able to put so much into my career. Having solely focused on that for a couple of years, I'm so ready to be back blogging and am planning to try and spend all those long hours at airports and on planes channelled into something more productive than scrolling Instagram! [On that note, if you haven't read my post on Instagram Algorithm, Shadow Banning and Pods Explained, don't forget to check it out!]

In the time I've been away, I've still kept up to date on all the blogs I love and everything going on in the community but wow has it changed, and some of those changes are really the other reason why I lost my love for it. Don't get me wrong, there are so many good things that have happened for this industry in the last few years and I appreciate all of those, but do they outweigh the negative parts? I haven't been so sure, which I guess is in part the reason for my break from everything.
