Other bloggers make me anxious and I don’t know why

I love finding new blogs to read and getting to know other bloggers on Twitter. Especially bloggers similar to myself. But there’s a part of me that feels intimidated by other bloggers. I’m not normally a shy person. I could spark up on a conversation with almost anyone. But I’m easily intimidated, and I always have been. Okay, don’t laugh, but there’s a boy in my class at college who terrifies me. There’s no reason why, he just does! I think we’ve spoken to each other twice before and only very briefly. He’s never done anything bad to me, he…

There are some things I miss about my little retail job though and I think they’re things that everyone misses about retail when they leave. Uniform discount Usually in retail you…

Maybe I was wrong about Krispy Kreme!

A few months ago I wrote about how I don’t like Krispy Kreme doughnuts. It’s been one of my most popular posts so far and I’ve received lots of lovely comments suggesting that I give Krispy Kreme another shot. I never wrote the post in the hope that people would convince me to give them another try. However, in the end, that’s how it turned out so I thought it would be wrong for me not to. Most people recommended that I try an original glazed doughnut rather than one of the fancy ones with toppings and fillings. The glazed Krispy…

I’m officially a member of the Papergang!

It seems monthly subscription boxes are at the peak of their popularity at the moment. It’s hardly surprising, there’s one out there for everyone! Arguably the most popular subscription boxes are beauty based, however there’s a subscription for everything from cheese toasties to arts and crafts. I liked the idea of receiving a surprise box of goodies every month so I jumped on the bandwagon and joined the Papergang. You might not have heard of Papergang, but you’ve probably heard of Ohh Deer. They sell adorable gifts and Papergang is their monthly stationary subscription box. Every month the contents is designed by a different artist…
