Blogging Tips & Resources // Weekly Link Roundup

April 26, 2015

Maybe it's the Nespresso talking, but lately I find the fire under my arse lit up like Katy Perry's bosom buddies.

I've been back in London for less than a month and already I've found myself back on Pinterest with a vengeance, jumped on the Bloglovin bandwagon, actually learned how to use Twitter (hashtags, who knew?), and started a Facebook page for Posh, Broke, & Bored. And those are just my online endeavours - offline, I've learnt to scale down my camera by switching out my DLSR for an Olympus Pen (I bought a new lens and all!), tackled all the DIY projects in my apartment that have been abandoned over the past year or so, built a website for Regimental Vintageand not only have Henry and I found the perfect brick & mortar shop for all our luscious fashions we are also this close to moving our considerable amount of stock into the shop and start planning the launch party. Which is in about 2 weeks. Eeeeep. Can I attribute this to my newly acquired Nespresso U machine and the 200 or so Grand Cru capsules I've powered though in the last month? Maybe. I wonder if that prodigious spurt of productivity is less caffeine-motivated and more the sort of 'What am I doing with my life' existential crisis that descends upon all those who find themselves encroached upon by the dreaded three-oh.

Should you find yourself besieged by a similar wave of motivation and find yourselves eager to up your blogging game, improve your photography, or just brand yourself in a manner so compelling that you could sell ice to an Eskimo, I have some blog posts that might inspire you! I've made a roundup of 8 posts I read this week that made me want to go from 'meh' to 'YEAH', which have made it into my Pinterest board of Blogging & Photography Tips (which I've also included below). I hope these find you in good health and fan the flames beneath your seat. May the muses ever bless you with their favour.

Here's a sneak peek of my desk in my home office, which I will reveal on Monday! The DIY bug bit me and left behind a faux-marble desk topped with the sort of storage I used to only dream about in my maddest organization-fantasies. (Is that a mini-orchid in a faux-marble pot? You bet it is) Maybe my new desk is the reason behind my new-found 'Can Do (it all)!' attitude. Either way, I know you all love a bit of marble, desk porn, DIY, and decor posts so I'm excited to share my home office with you tomorrow. Excelsioooor! x

  6. Carmen! Yes, the 'market' is crazy saturated these days which makes personal branding so important - it's so much easier and quicker to decide which new reads are a 'keeper'! I hope I stand out somewhat, haha! x
