The Weekend Update #12

I’m Kirsty, a lifestyle blogger, freelance copywriter, university student & daydreamer. I like Pinterest, podcasts and plants. When I’m not worrying about the future, I can be found at writing about life, interiors, travel & more!


February is flying by and I’ve seen a few wild flowers popping up around my street which can only mean one thing. Spring must be around the corner! I hope I can soon be wearing my sandals and doing the winter to summer wardrobe switch. I might be getting ahead of myself however as last year we were floored with snow at the beginning of March! 

I love how the change of seasons impacts the blogosphere. I think a change always brings around a fresh start for a lot of people and a whole new host of content ideas! Now might be a good time to start thinking about the kind of content you want to produce in spring. Is there anything exciting you’re doing in the next few weeks? Anything about seasonal you want to chat about? Now is the time to be planning and writing and brainstorming! 

Catch up with the best bits from the blogosphere this week.
